Gionee launch the world’s thinnest phone
Last year Gionee held the title for the world’s thinnest phone with the Gionee S5.1 longer than any other company, and at MWC they hope to take the title back. Currently Vivo have the thinnest phone on the market with the Vivo X5 Max, however IVVI will have announced a thinner 4.7mm phone which will go on sale very soon. In third place it is the Oppo R5, and 4th the Gionee S5.1, and Gionee are hot to take the title back.




HTC leaked specs for Desiere device
Purported leaked specification details of the HTC A55 claim it isn’t a flagship, but the hardware certainly looks the part.

Swatch's smartwatch without charging
Swiss watchmaker Swatch has been toying with the idea of a smartwatch for some time, and now CEO Nick Hayek is saying that we can expect in in the next three months. What's most interesting, , is Hayek's claim of a smartwatch that doesn't have to be charged.
There are two potential paths to take for a watch that doesn't have to be charged. The first is an "automatic" watch with an generator spun by the motion of an eccentric-weighted rotor (itself moved by the motion of the wearer's arm). The other approach would be using a watch cell battery, which would offer a much longer battery life than a rechargeable lithium-based battery. Swatch makes watches in both cell batteries and automatic quartz varieties.



Game of Thrones ep.2 arrived
Last week we learned that Games of Thrones Episode 2 was coming to Android on February 5th. As scheduled, “The Lost Lords” has arrived as an in-app purchase for the Game of Thrones app, priced at $4.99. For those that didn’t play the original, the game is based on the HBO series of the same name (and the books by George R. R. Martin, of course) and let’s you make decisions in the role of House Forrester and House Stark. Like with other Telltale series, you control various characters and the action is of the “choose your own adventure” type.



Gionee Elife 7 on sale
The flagship Gionee Elife E7 is now on sale at an amazing sub $200 price tag! Is this Snapdragon 800 phone still worth a shot? Last year Gionee launched their flagship Gionee Elife E7. The launch was a big shock to Chinese phone follows as not only did Gionee ditch Mediatek for Qualcomm, but they also packed their then new phone with an amazing 16 mega-pixel rear camera.




100 000 of Meizu M1 preordered in 1min
Since the dawn of low-cost Chinese phones we have come accustom to seeing huge numbers of devices sold out in just a few minutes and the release of the Meizu m1 was no different. Meizu did shockingly well with 100,000 of the m1 pre-ordered in only 1 minute after the sale began! It’s a great success for the Meizu as a company, but many fans have been left disappointed by the sale and will have to wait for the next batch of phones to arrive before they can have another chance.


More Galaxy Tab tablets coming in 2015
Although some analysts had predicted (and recommended) Samsung reducing its breadth of devices available to the consumer this year, it seems that Samsung still has some surprises up its sleeve. According to GalaxyClub, Samsung has applied for three new trademarks with the Korean IPO: the Samsung Galaxy Tabs A, E and J. These are obviously names for new tablets, which will most likely join the ranks of the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Tab S in the coming tech release season.


Sony mobile division drowning

Sony revised its forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31 and revealed partial results for the last three months of 2014. Strong console and camera sensors sales have helped offset weak performance in other areas, including mobile. Starting with the mobile unit, Sony sold around 11.9 million smartphones in FQ3, which resulted in an operating profit of around $80 million. Sales volume is up 27 percent compared to the same quarter last year. However, due to the massive impairment charge that Sony booked in September, the company estimates a total loss of around $1.83 billion for the mobile unit in the fiscal year ending March 31. Furthermore, Sony announced more job cuts, with another 1,100 workers to be laid off over the next year, in addition to the 1,000 already announced.
