Facebook announces Video on Instagram

With recent moves to add hashtag support, verified Pages, comments with inline photo embeds and more, it appears that Facebook is ready to take on competing social networks. It should come as no surprise to us, then, that it's putting its acquisition of Instagram to good use by introducing a service -- aptly called Video on Instagram --that rivals Vine, a similar service now owned by Twitter.

Samsung Galaxy NX mirrorless camera

This is the Galaxy NX, an ILC with LTE connectivity that's capable of capturing at 8.6 fps and contains a hybrid autofocus system made by Samsung. Though there are a few minor quirks, there's still time between now and when the camera launches later this year in which the company can sort them out. We're looking forward to testing the device and comparing image quality against its ILC rivals.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini hands-on (video)

It may have broken cover officially at the end of last month, even popping up for a quick hands-on along the way. However, at last, we're getting to know the Galaxy S4 Mini a little better at Samsung's bonanza product bash here in London.

Samsung ATIV Tab 3 hands-on (video)

Well, we're no closer to finding out whether or not this is indeed the world's thinnest Windows 8 tablet, but we can confirm that the ATIV Tab 3 is stunningly thin. In fact, it's as svelte as its iOS and Android competitors, hitting an astounding 8.22mm. While the screen was nothing to write home about, it did have decent viewing angle and pleasant levels of saturation.
