  • PlayStation 4 in Australia and Europe won't get full PSN features at launch

    PlayStation 4 What's New section

    Sony has been rather successful in selling the PlayStation 4, to the point where the PlayStation Network has strained under the load. The company doesn’t want to worsen these problems with its PS4 launches in Australia, Europe and New Zealand, so it’s taking an unusual step: for the first few days after release in these areas, it’s disabling friend activity in both the What’s New and content info sections. Activity will come back once the initial frenzy is over, Sony says. The decision won’t make a big impact on gameplay when multiplayer and other core features will be available on day one, but it may catch a few players off-guard.

  • Gionee Elife E7 boasts most sensitive 16MP camera, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 800

    Gionee isn’t exactly a name that you’d come across in the Western market every day, but this time, the Chinese company has big global ambitions. The latest proof is its Elife E7, a 5.5-inch 1080p Android phone that boasts two titles: it’s the first known phone featuring the 2.5GHz flavor of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chip (MSM8974AC); plus it has the most sensitive 16-megapixel camera, courtesy of its Largan M8 lens (though the aperture is still unknown) and 1/2.3-inch sensor with large 1.34µm pixels. Compared to the competition, Gionee believes this particular OmniVision sensor has the best balance between resolution and pixel size, and the phone maker even went as far as claiming this already beats the 1.12µm, 16-megapixel counterpart on the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S 5. Of course, we’ll believe it when we get to properly test the E7’s camera ourselves.

  • Nokia's Lumia 2520 tablet exclusive to John Lewis in the UK from December 4th

    UK-centric news is plentiful today while America busies itself with feasts and football. One such announcement concerns the launch of Nokia’s first tablet, the Lumia 2520, which will go on sale December 4th exclusively at John Lewis and affiliate stores. Running Windows RT 8.1, the colorful 10.1-inch tablet will cost £400, while the optional keyboard accessory will retail for an additional £150 when it becomes available “in the coming weeks” (although we can’t say we were enamored with the typing experience in our review). Curiously, John Lewis’ monopoly means you’ll have to go to extra lengths to make use of the 2520’s LTE radio by procuring a 4G data-only SIM from EE or O2. Thus, you also can’t take advantage of any carrier subsidies. There’s no word on exactly when the exclusivity period will end, but if you just have to have one, you know exactly where to go.
