Jabra Solemate Mini hands-on: ultra-portable speaker with big sound

Jabra has announced the newest member of the Solemate family today. The new arrival is the Solemate Mini, and similar to the non-mini version, this one is a portable Bluetooth speaker. Jabra is touting the Solemate Mini as being a new "ultra-portable version" of the Solemate. And in addition to the Solemate Mini, Jabra has also announced an updated version of the Solemate. First things first though, as the Solemate Mini is the new addition -- we have some hands-on coverage.

Lenovo S5000: hands-on with another Nexus 7 competitor

Lenovo announced the S5000 tablet and the Vibe X smartphone during IFA. We recently shared some hands-on images with the Vibe X and now we have some for the S5000. The Lenovo S5000 is a 7-inch Android tablet, and given the size, it seems only natural to have it sitting as competition for the Nexus 7. Of course, while we have some specs for the S5000, we have yet to see the other important aspect -- the price.

Lenovo Vibe X hands-on: 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core processor

Lenovo has had a few Android device announcements during IFA, one of which is the Vibe X. This is a 5-inch smartphone that has a 1080p display and is powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor. The Vibe X will be arriving as the next flagship for Lenovo and it brings a bit of focus on the cameras -- which includes a 5 megapixel on the front and a 13 megapixel on the back.

LG G Pad 8.3 hands-on

LG is making another attempt at the tablet segment, bringing its new G Pad 8.3 to IFA 2013 to try to build on the buoyant reception to the LG G2. We grabbed some hands-on time with the 8.3-inch tablet to find out whether LG's promise of "better than HD" resolution and features cribbed from the G2 make sense.

Qualcomm Toq smartwatch hands-on

Qualcomm announced the Toq smartwatch earlier in the day and while we have yet to see a detailed listing of the specs, we have seen the basics. And perhaps more important for some -- we have also spent some hands-on time with the watch. Our time with the Toq was somewhat limited, however we were able to gather a few details and also capture some images.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hands-on

Putting an end to another series of rumors, Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Note 3. As the name would imply, this marks the third-generation for the phablet and this time around we are seeing the continued support for the S Pen as well as goodies such as a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display and quad-core processor. And just as the leaks and rumors were suggesting, that processor will vary by market.

Sony Xperia Z1 hands-on

Sony and their entire Xperia range has been impressive lately with new devices like the Ultra being added, and today we're finally getting our first official and real look at the Xperia Z1. This device has leaked more times than we can count as the Honami, but now we have everything you need to know below. All the waterproof features are still here, only we now have a beautiful metal frame for a design. Check out our hands-on video below.
