ASUS PadFone Infinity review: the convertible phone goes full HD and beyond

Almost exactly two years ago ASUS unveiled the PadFone, a phone that could fully power a tablet module from its own OS.

Hands-on with prototypes of the Xbox One and new Kinect sensor

We gasped our way through the liveblog. We brought you news of the specs and the software and everything else. But now it's time to take a deep dive into the Xbox One, Microsoft's next-gen console, and what it might mean for Earth's living rooms. Engadget was given exclusive access to the hallowed labs at the heart of this project and to the engineers who made it happen. We got to play with prototypes of the hardware and to discover firsthand whether Kinect 2.0 really can tell if we're winking.

You've already read our hands-on with Xbox One's new Kinect and wireless gamepad, but perhaps you noticed our inability to test the gamepad's new "impulse triggers?" Well, we're glad to tell you we've just mended that exception.
