Xiaomi has long been expected to launch a new tablet. And according to a new teaser posted by the company, this tablet could be finally unveiled on the 23rd of April. The teaser only reveals the side of the tablet which looks uncannily familiar to the Apple Wireless Keyboard and one of the Lenovo Yoga tablets, which could raise an eyebrow or two at the time of launch. April 23 is also when the OnePlus One is expected to be announced, so it seems like we might be in for a very busy Wednesday. Xiaomi has been building significant interest...

The HTC Desire 610 smartphone was unveiled back in late February by HTC along with the Desire 816. With the two smartphones making the rounds in Asia for a while now, HTC has finally decided to launch the Desire 610 in the UK for £235 ($394).

The pricing is fairly aggressive for a midrange device and it seems like HTC is learning from its past mistakes. The Desire 816 has been very...

It is much better than the digital zoom feature that current smartphones use which uses software to enlarge a photo and will often result in pixelatation. With optical zoom present in smartphones it will now be able to compete against digital SLRs. HTC’s Symon Whitehorn says that it is possible that...

Despite talk of a delay in the rollout of the Sony Xperia Z2 in the UK, retailers in the region have managed to start shipping out devices today. This comes on the back of reports which suggested that shortage in components is causing Sony to push back the launch to May. This perk however could only be limited to customers who pre-ordered the smartphone early and not those who have placed orders recently. So this doesn’t come as confirmation of Sony resolving its supply issues just yet. But it’s good to see that Sony and...
