Recap of IFA Day 1

Or is it Day -2?  I dunno anymore.

Anyways... yesterday we saw a lot of devices announced by Lenovo, Motorola, Acer, Asus, Sony and Huawei.  I wrote most of them down in our database and I'll be continuing to update as we go, so stay tuned on that page for any new items

Acer


They released a bunch of their "Liquid" series phones, fairly entry line devices: the Z320, Z530(S) & Z630(S).  The S variants swapped out a quad core for an octacore.

They also released a 'Predator' tablet aimed at the gaming market equipped with an Intel Atom x7 chip.

Asus

Aside from releasing an odd looking 'spiderlike' router, they also let out a series of "Zen" items.  Starting with their Watch 2, Pad (S) in both 8" and 10" then a slew of Fone 2s.  The Deluxe - a huge amount of storage, the Lser, the Selfie (13MP selfie cam with loads of 'beautifying' modifications avaialble) and the Zoom.  I'm really interested in that Zoom.

Huawei

They released their 'Watch' as well as the Mate S and the G8.

Which of the 2 phones do you think the next Nexus is going to be based off of?

Lots of options for that watch based on a variety of cases/bands ranging from $350 - $800!

Lenovo

Introducing a rival to the ol' Galaxy Mega, they announced the PHAB (Plus) phones as well as their Vibe P1(m) phones.

Additionally they showed off the next series of the YOGA 3 tablets, including a new 'Pro' version which the projector can now go up to 70"!

Motorola

The newest Moto 360 was announced.  In both Mens and Womens (Mens comes in 2 sizes) as well as a Sport version.

I can't tell if we are or aren't getting all the sizes available in Canada or not (my press release didn't mention the sizes/mens/womens option, just a regular or sport).

Sony

As if we didn't know from all the leaks, the new Z5 series came out.  As discussed previously it came out with a Compact and Premium version in tow.  Each have hte same processor and 23MP G-lens camera as well as a fingerprint scanner on the side power button.

The Premium version packs the world's first 4K display.  WOWZA
