The last phone designed by BlackBerry has managed to grab a lot of attention in the past few days and a new post from Ralph Pini, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager, Mobility Solutions, at BlackBerry, highlights that even further.

CES 2017 Day Three: How many pixels do you really need?

CES 2017

Three screens are better than one

Razer's concept laptop is just… insane.

There are the laptops that everybody else is showing off at CES 2017, and there's Razer's Project Valerie. The bottom half is a standard Razer Blade Pro — a powerhouse gaming laptop, no doubt — but the lid contains not one, not two, but three 17.3-inch 4K displays. Combined they span around four feet, tucking back behind the center screen when not in use. It's a crazy cool and just plain craze concept. And we want one so hard.

ASUS's updated Chromebook Flip is a Chrome OS powerhouse

No tolerance for slouches.

There's no doubt about it: Chromebooks are coming into their own. From the Samsung-Google partnership that resulted in the Chromebook Plus and Pro to ASUS's new Chromebook Flip C302, they've never been better or more capable. The new ASUS Chromebook is a powerful little beast, sporting an Intel Core processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and two USB ports. Chrome OS is finally coming into its own.

Dell's 8K monitor is the new king of the display hill

Just when you were getting comfortable with the idea of 4K.

Let's be honest: most of us don't have 4K displays yet. But that doesn't stop the march of technological progress, nor will Dell let such trivialities slow them down. So they unveiled a 32-inch 8K monitor that they're planning to have available to buy as soon as March. Words can't really describe the beauty of this beast.

The connected everything

Is it a thing? Can it be connected to the internet? Stop asking silly questions.

Some things have long been "connected" and are getting more so, like security cameras and thermostats and door locks. Other things are new to the connected space, like Lego robots and women's health fertility trackers. Others… are hairbrushes with built-in artificial intelligence.

Dell Canvas is a big honkin' touch screen to go with any PC

Think of it as a Surface Studio without the built-in PC.

If there was one let-down with the Microsoft Surface Studio, it was the lack of true oomph from the computing hardware behind that gorgeous touch screen. So Dell decided to make a screen that does the same things, but without the included computer bits. So this is the Dell Canvas, a 27-inch QHD panel that lets you tap with your fingers, draw with the included pen, and spin away with a Dell "totem" — their take on the Surface Dial. It's not cheap, but it's still cheaper than a Surface Studio, and you can hook it up to the high-powered PC of your choice.

CES 2017 Day Two: New laptops, new phones, and old ideas made new

CES 2017

Wednesday, 4 January 2017

Update all the laptops

Thinner, faster, lighter, stronger.

With new 7th-generation Core chips from Intel landing in the months before CES, it was time for a seemingly every PC manufacturer to update their lineup. In the cards for everybody: thinner, lighter, marginally faster, longer-lasting batteries, Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C, and a notable decrease in bezels.

The new BlackBerry that's not made by BlackBerry

BlackBerry's back, alright!

From the looks of the BlackBerry Mercury you'd think that BlackBerry hadn't changed at all. But this is a phone from TCL, the new licensee of the BlackBerry brand, even if it looks and feels every part a BlackBerry. We're still light on practically every detail, from specs to the actual production name, but we're still kind of excited to see that the shifting of the BlackBerry brand doesn't mean the abandonment of the classic keyboard.

Honor's Magic is a design showcase as a phone

Curved all around, because they can.

Huawei's never been a manufacturer that shied away from making crazy hardware, and their Honor sub-brand has generated a phone that's a truly beautiful piece of design: the Honor Magic. The glass is curved in every direction more substantially than any phone we've seen before, married to a thin metal frame. As Android Central's Andrew Martonik described it, it's similar to the "Galaxy S7 edge, but it's even more impressively thin and compact." More impressive, however, might be the software: Honor baked in artificial intelligence to help the phone predict what you'll want to do, such as dynamically rearranging your home screen.

The first Chromebook designed for Android apps

Google and Samsung partnered up to design an impressive new pair of Chrome OS devices: the Samsung Chromebook Plus and Pro. These convertible Chromebooks are the first designed with running Android apps in mind, and as such they're equipped with full motion sensor suites. Beyond that, Samsung also built in their stylus tech — pop out the docked pen and you'll be able to write and draw to your heart's content on the hi-res 12.3-inch display.

ASUS announces two new phones with four cameras

ASUS took to CES 2017 to unveil their newest ZenFone devices: the ZenFone 3 Zoom and the ZenFone AR. The ZenFone 3 Zoom is the follow-up to the unique if flawed optically-zooming ZenFone Zoom, and its ditching of the mechanical optical zoom is both a disappointment and not a surprise. In its place are a pair of cameras — one standard, one telephoto, not unlike the iPhone 7 Plus. On the flip side is the ZenFone AR, which uses its cameras and sensor array to scan your surroundings in full 3D. It's not the first phone to do this, but it's certainly the most compact Google Tango phone we've yet seen.

NVIDIA's Shield TV box has been something of a sleeper hit — those that know it love it, but it's never really got a heavy push behind it. We don't know if that's going to change with the latest update, but we do know it's an impressive update. Coming to the Android TV party is Google Assistant, Samsung SmartThings integration, HDR video, and a whole bunch of new games.
