Spending time with the flagship Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 (hands-on)

By 3 October 2014

Amazon's autumn/winter 2014 tablet and eBook reader refresh is headed by the Fire HDX 8.9, an 8.9-inch powerhouse of a slate that sits at the top of the retailer's line-up. Unlike the 6 and 7-inch Fire HD tablets that are more aimed at the family unit... >>

Tesco Hudl 2 could be the best budget tablet ever (hands-on)

By 3 October 2014

Nobody, not even Tesco, expected last year's Hudl Android tablet to be such a runaway hit, but runaway hit it sure was. To date, Tesco has sold over 750,000 Hudls so it makes a lot of sense for the UK supermarket chain to follow up the award-winning... >>

Forza Horizon 2 review

By 3 October 2014

In the great race of social driving games, Forza Horizon 2 just pipped DriveClub and The Crew to the finishing line and can therefore be seen as a trailblazer for its genre. But has it got enough to keep the others at bay or will it soon be overtaken?... >>

Amazon Fire HD 6 and 7 tablets embrace the cheap and cheerful path, we go hands-on

By 2 October 2014

Amazon Kindle Voyage redefines the premium eBook reader experience, we go hands-on

By 2 October 2014

Amazon's refresh of its Kindle eBook readers this year seems like a massive leap forward for a technology that has surely been hit hard by the rise in tablets, not least the brand's own Fire devices. The Amazon Kindle Voyage is leading the way and if... >>

Asus Zenfone 5 review

By 2 October 2014

It was only 18 months ago that cheap phones reeked of compromise; the gap between entry-level Android phones and top-end ones was massive. But that's all changed in recent months. Phones like the Asus Zenfone 5 and Motorola Moto G (2014) have plugged... >>

BMW M3 review (2014)

By 1 October 2014

Create a legend and it creates a rod for its own back. The BMW M3 is one such legend and with every new version you'll hear the same complaints: "It's moved too far away from the original concept." "It's too heavy." "It's got the wrong number of cylinders."... >>
