I don’t know about you, but I’ve been itching to find out more about the LG Nexus 5 since it made an accidental appearance in the video for Google’s KitKat statue unveiling earlier this week. Fortunately for us, you can always rely on the FCC to tell the world about a secret, unreleased product weeks ahead of its official unveiling.
Codenamed the “D820,” the new device will have a 5-inch display, LTE connectivity, and a speedy Snapdragon 800 processor.
Despite the fact that Brother’s new, top-of-the-line all-in-one inkjet printer looks like a swarthy behemoth, Brother says the MFC-J6920dw is actually 35 percent smaller than comparable competitor’s models.
Brother achieves this through something they call “Landscape Print Technology,” a feature it introduced last year that lets the printers output to large pages from printers with relatively small footprints.
At an event in Berlin in just under two hours time, Sony will announce two attachable lenses that you’ll be able to stick onto the back of your smartphone to take better photos. They’re called the QX100 and the QX10, and you can see exactly what they’ll look like in the leaked press images above — and exactly how they’ll work in the leaked TV ad below.
The HTC One is famous for its incredible front-facing BoomSound speakers, but clearly HTC feels there’s still room for improvement. The Taiwanese company today announced BoomBass, a miniature subwoofer that promises to bring even better sound to your HTC One and One mini.
We’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of BBM for Android since BlackBerry announced it back in May, but the Canadian company has done a pretty good job of keeping the app close to its chest ahead of its public launch. So aside from a few leaked screenshots, we really had no idea what it would look like or how it would perform.
But that’s no longer the case, thanks to the hands-on tour video below.
Gear Manager, a new Samsung app that will allow you to manage your Galaxy Gear smartwatch from your Android-powered smartphone, has appeared in a pair of leaked screenshots ahead of of the Galaxy Gear’s grand unveiling on Wednesday.
The app suggests Gear will connect to your smartphone via NFC and Bluetooth, and that it will have its own apps and a “find my watch” feature.
Samsung is expected to announce Galaxy Gear, its first Android-powered smartwatch, during its Galaxy Note III press event in Berlin on September 4. We don’t yet know what it will look like, but according to information from insider sources, it’ll be available in a variety of colors, including white, orange, grey, black, and white gold.
It has the technological sophistication of a sonic screwdriver. Its design elements look as if pulled straight out of another dimension. And there may not be another set of headphones on this planet — or any other — baked with as many ingredients as the Parrot Zik.
But we were curious — would all this tech work? And how would the Ziks sound? So we poked them with a stick, and here’s what we discovered. Allons-y!

Do you ever wish you had a better camera in your smartphone? Well, before you upgrade to a hideous Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, you might want to take a look at the blurry picture below. It’s an accessory that Sony is rumored to be working on that’ll help you take incredible pictures with your smartphone.
It’s not just a fancy clip-on lens; it’s actually a 20.2-megapixel Exmor RS camera with a Carl Zeiss lens that uses your smartphone’s display as its viewfinder.
