Review : Wii U


With its nifty features, improved graphics, smooth design and controls, the Wii U is

easy to use for all andquite versatile.  Its advanced connectionto the internet for digital

downloads and online playing gives gamers directaccess to a wider selection of

games at the tip of their fingers rather than having to stop at a nearby store.


It’s not in direct competition withthe P2P or Xbox 360, but users will receive value for

their money.  Allowing you to take your game from a controller and screen in the living

room to a handheld that can be used anywhere with internet access is pretty genius

and the lack of not needing a television to continue gaming is a huge bonus.

Boasting the biggest screen on the market, the Samsung Galaxy Note, the latest smartphone release, has a 5.3" super HD display. 

Old School - PalmPilot, first featured in March 1996


Reminiscent of the PalmPilot or Nintendo Ds (for all you handheld game lovers!), it comes equipped with a nifty stylus, coined as the 'S Pen'. Undoubetedly, its other features are more tech savvy with a front and rear camera and Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system.

The Note is only the most recent of the gadget line up being presented by Samsung.  It's newly announced Galaxy Tab 7.7 is being widely known and prmoted as the world's first mobile tablet featuring Super AMOLED Plus display.

For those who aren't familiar, Samsung offers a short video on it's features and uses, which can be found here.

Well, the hottest summer commodity has been the handy and technologically advanced iPhone, who recently markd its 4th anniversary since its debut on June 29, 2007.  Although persons have long followed the rumours, both on and offline, of the iPhone 5's 2011 debut; no exact date has been determined.  To further fuel the anticipation of the tech savvy and enthusiasts everywhere, upgrades including integrated graphics, a faster multi-core processor, LTG speeds and a new antenna have also been speculated.  A possible October/November release is supported by a report of a 15 milion iPhone 5 shipment, according to Taiwan based newspaper Digitimes.com.  

With an estimated 1.5million sold on the iPhone 4's first day, it would be interesting to see how its successor will sustain when the official launch date is released.


With the fifth version not expected to be a major improvement from its predecessor, will this be on your Christmas wish list this year?
