iPhone 5c announced: Apples not so cheap budget iPhone

Along with the recently announced iPhone 5s, Apple announced its new budget phone, the iPhone 5c. This phone is basically the original iPhone 5 but with a plastic shell. The device features an A6 processor, 8MP camera and steel frame that’s coated in plastic. That frame will also act as an antenna for the radio. It gets an update on the front Facetime camera however, bumping it up to HD capability. Unlike the 5s this will come in 5 colours, white, pink, yellow, blue, green and will start at £469 for 16GB and £549 for 32GB. We think this...

iPhone 5S Announced with 64-bit Apple A7 chip and fingerprint scanning

The long anticipated iPhone 5S has finally been announced with many of the rumours about it being correct.

Haier Pad Mini 8 PADD85

Haier is not a common brand in the UK, but they are huge in Asia for their white goods, however they are pushing into European markets and expanding their product line heavily to include TVs, Phones, and Tablets. We had chance to play with a few of the devices and they were surprisingly good, for reasonable prices.  The Haier Pad Mini 8 is their second generation tablet, and includes a Quad Core Processor, which I believe is using Qualcomms chipset, though exact specifications were lacking. All the tablets have a microUSB slot. The pricing was in the sub £200...
