Since it's been nearly a year since Oregon Scientific's MEEP! kiddy tablet arrived on the scene, it makes sense that we're due for a refresh. We did see a listing for the MEEP! X2 pop up earlier this month, but the device's arrival at the FCC is the first concrete sign that the slate will arrive s...

While it's being wheeled through the FCC's underground Washington bunker, it's merely known as patient PY7PM-0280. It's only once it's been through the ordeal of being torn to pieces and put back together again that we can call it the Sony Xperia Z. Given that the documents are now available, it's...

This isn't the only time the 16.1-megapixel shooter has be...

How? More often than not, the confidentiality request has already been lift...

Remember that low-end Xperia handset that surfaced earlier this month with a one-way ticket to China? Well that 4-inch ICS device, the Neo L, has just made its many assets known for the folks at the FCC, stripping down to its internal skivvies and leaving nothing to the (lawyer's) imagination.

There's a good chance you don't remember the Le Pan III. The Ice Cream Sandwich tablet succumbed to the deluge of fellow Android slates when it was announced back in January during CES, but perhaps it'll get a bit more attention now that it's gotten the FCC's governmental stamp of approval.
