Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 preview

An updated, larger Galaxy Note from Samsung was inevitable. Given the undeniable popularity of mid-size tablets (see: Apple iPad mini), it's no surprise the Korean electronics giant would want to strengthen its foothold in a category it helped create.

HTC One hands-on: design and hardware

The HTC One made quite an entrance in London and New York today with a slick-looking design and re-imagined Android user experience. It's a significant departure from last year's One X -- our favorite handset of 2012 -- and represents the company's most important product to date.

Chromebook Pixel hands-on

Taking a small stage in San Francisco's Dogpatch neighborhood, Google's Sundar Pichai introduced the Chromebook Pixel, the company's attempt to "rethink everything" in terms of laptop design.

Sony Xperia Z review

The Xperia Z is one of the main pillars of Sony's new plan to focus on mobile, gaming and imaging.
