It was mere weeks since we saw NEC's last smartphone that will probably never take the plane ride away from Japan, but contrary to its recent financials, the company doesn't appear to be letting up. The NEC Medias LTE N-04D, arriving on NTT DoCoMo, is a little chunkier than its predecessor, but that 11.6mm shell manages to squeeze in 4G connectivity and a 1.
NTT DoCoMo's LTEis so fast that ordinary life can seem slow by comparison. That's why the company's latestbizarre advertis showing you how to make a dinner of battered shrimp in under three seconds. All you'll need is an air cannon, some flour, batter and an open flame, as well as the mechanism to spray all three into the air.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is a device that we already know quite a bit about, but one of the things that we aren’t sure of is exactly when it will launch. The Galaxy Note Edge was spied recently passing through the FCC in the US to gain the certifications it needs to launch.
Casio's camera arm has announced a new camera that is aimed directly at the user who takes lots of selfies. The camera is called the Exilim MR1 and it is available for about $330 in Hong Kong. The camera has a 14MP sensor under the front cover of a device that looks a lot like an old school mobile phone. The shiny mirror makes it easy to align your selfie.
Since it's a limited edition smartphone, the availability of the Galaxy Note Edge is always going to be something worth noting. Quite surprisingly it isn't its hometown of Korea or the main markets of the US and the UK that will be getting dibs on the eccentric smartphone. Instead Samsung has first launched its curved edge screen smartphone in the Japanese market, supposedly owing to the country's culture of embracing the latest, and sometimes the strangest, technologies, which is what the Galaxy Note Edge definitely is.
Some say that I'm an Australian. And that as well as being an Engineer, I also enjoy a good game and my Android devices, currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 7. All you need to know though is I review hardware and games, write news, and manage the AndroidSPIN Facebook and Pinterest pages.
When eBay Now first surfaced two years ago, it appeared in the guise of an iOS app that promised same-day delivery for products sold by local stores.

If you think it’s been too long since you’ve used a walkie talkie, you may be in luck. Verizon Wireless, America’s most loved/hated carrier, is adding “push to talk” functionality to some of their smartphones. They’re calling it Push To Talk Plus, and it basically does what you’d hope it to: use your phone like a walkie talkie.
Now that LG's marched out itslatest flagship smartphone, its time to repeat the process for smaller hands. That's where the G3 Beat comes in, folding in laser-guided camera autofocus, thatself-learning keyboard, LTE and a removable 2,540mAh battery. What it doesn't get, however, is that ridiculously sharp quad-HD display found on the G3.
There's a lot of talk these days about ways to prevent smartphone theft. The iPhone's kill switch feature seems to be doing a pretty good job of curbing iPhone thefts, and that's definitely a good thing, but I have a feeling this creepy case from Japan might do an even better job. If nothing else, it'll probably scare at least a few would-be crooks away before they even realize what it is.

When UbisoftsurveyedAssassin's Creedfansin 2011, two possible video game locations piqued our curiosity: Feudal Japan and Victorian England. With each annual release, we've clamored to see if either had been chosen as the developer's next virtual playground. Well, for one historical backdrop that time has finally arrived.
Google is about to determine the future of smartwatches. Whenit announcedAndroid Wear-- its new platform for wearable technology (watches in particular) -- I was in London for an industry trade show, along with a number of wearables manufacturers.
