CES – Huawei Watch range expanded

Huawei has announced that they will be expanding their Watch range with two new models. These have been designed for the fairer sex or those who have skinny wrists – i.e. me! The new watches do add an element of glamour to the proceedings with some bedazzling ornamentation. The …

Huawei launch the Mate 8 Globally – CES

ASUS ZenFone Zoom finally launching in February

Last year at CES 2015 Asus announced a new smartphone that will “redefine your expectations of smartphone photography”.

CES – Triby – A kitchen noticeboard and more

I’m on the fence with this one, so I’d love to know your thoughts. Called the “Triby” it’s a Bluetooth speaker, Bluetooth speakerphone, notification system, internet radio and communication system. It’ll stick via a magnet to your fridge and then lets you make calls or play music. When …

What you want, deep down, is one of these. What you can have, if you’ve “only” got £4000, is a smartphone bearing the Lamborghini name. It’s called the 88 Tauri, and it’s expensive. The press people tell us that the handset has a “design aesthetic that emphasises quality” …

CES – Next onto the stage, the ZenFone 2

With a catchy codename of ZE551ML this is perhaps better revealed using a rather beautiful introduction by the ASUS PR department, who tell us.. It’s an engineering marvel in the palm of your hand. The ASUS ZenFone 2 features all-new ergonomic luxe design with graceful curved case, ultra-slim …
