For that kind of money the latest Honor is quite impressive, offering a 5.0-inch screen running at 1080p resolution, 13MP [...]

Asda opts for Samsung Galaxy Tab Lite exclusive

Asda is sort of starting a new tablet war with Tesco and its stonkingly popular Hudl, thanks to a deal to sell an exclusive version of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Lite in store and online.

Android Outlook app updated with… Windows Phone design

A brand new version of Microsoft’s Outlook (nee Hotmail) Android app has just gone live on Google Play, finally binning the tired old Gothic look for a completely fresh and much lighter layout.
