In case you haven't noticed this week has seen the IFA gadget and tech show taking place in Berlin and as such, we've been able to get our hands on a host of new tech toys.
We've been playing with tablets, TVs, phones, cameras and more.
Read on to discover the kit that's impressed us this week.
Sony has officially launched its new Tablet S at IFA 2011.
The new 9.4-inch tab is powered by Nvidia's Tegra 2 processor and features the Android Honeycomb operating system. It's version 3.1 which will be upgradeable to 3.2.
The Sony Tablet S UK release date is September. A Wi-Fi/3G version of the Tablet S has a UK release date of November 2011 - this will ship with Android 3.2 from the off.
Yes, it's an odd-looking thing. Yes, it's difficult to know who would buy it. But yes, the Sony Tablet P is a rather interesting device with dual 5-inch touchscreens that fold together for transport.
Launched alongside the bigger Sony Tablet S at IFA 2011, the 372g tablet is amazingly light despite its rather 'massive glasses case' appearance.
Formerly known as the Sony S2, the $599 tablet ships with Android 3.1, although it will be upgradeable to Android 3.2. Wi-Fi and 3G models will ship with Android 3.2.
Samsung has shown off the Galaxy Note at IFA 2011, a huge 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED handset which comes complete with a stylus called the S Pen.
We grabbed some time with it on the show floor just after Samsung's press conference took place.
The Note has a 1.4GHz ARM-based dual-core processor inside, though we have to be honest and say that while some apps were snappy, there was a bit of lag when dropping into things like the web browser. That surprised us as we'd assume the units we saw on the stand were shipping models. And it's doubly surprising given the Note's speedy processor.
The HTC Radar seems like an evolution of the HTC Trophy, and comes complete with Windows Phone 7 Mango to boot.
Decked out in an almost all-aluminium chassis, the Radar is a slightly chunkier device compared to the HTC Titan, and has a more rounded and polished feel to it.
That extra width around the 3.7-inch screen might look slightly less functional than the Titan, but still doesn't really pack the aesthetic punch of other top-end smartphones - or even those in the HTC Android line up.
HTC's new Windows Phone Mango range has been unveiled, and with it some expected and some unexpected handsets.
The unexpected moniker certainly stands for the HTC Titan that, although we heard rumours of it, comes with a surprising 4.5-inch screen, making it easily one of the biggest phones on the market.
It's also running Mango, the latest version of Microsoft's operating system, and is designed to be one of the flagship phones carrying the Redmond OS flag.
