You've seen the Friday posts, but now you can experience for yourself. TechRadar has launched its official United States hub. All the mobile news and technology reviews you could want is now in one nifty location. Working alongside the original TechRadar, our friends at TechRadar are leveraging the success of the UK site here in the states. It won't just be a sibling site, however--you can expect to see original buying guys, reviews, and news. Check it out and let them know what you think!
The more we play with the Apple TV, and the more Apple updates it with new features and new software, the more we like it. But the problem is that unless you've got at least one Mac or iOS device, it's simply not something you'd want to buy. This latest version is a perfect example of that. New 1080p features and a new interface will be enough to attract Apple fans, but for anyone else there are simply better, cheaper options out there. Still though, we've enjoyed our time with it and it's been fun to test it alongside some of Panasonic and Sharp's 2012 TVs this week.
The Sharp in particular offers stunning value for money – so if you're looking for a great home cinema TV on a budget, be sure to check out the review after the cut!
The beginning of March traditionally marks the start of new products season in the world of tech. It's the time when all the exciting gadgets that were announced at IFA at the end of last year and at CES in January starts making its way onto the shelves and into our testing labs.
We probably won't have to tell you that Apple's new iPad is one of these products. It was only announced on Tuesday but it'll go on sale at the end of next week.
You can also expect graphics cards, TVs, Blu-ray players, tablets, phones, cameras... You get the idea. It's the start of the reviews season! Let's go!
There's nothing like a new version of Windows to make you and your PC feel inadequate and out of date. But don't worry, Windows 8 won't be out for a while yet and if you really want to you can install the Windows 8 Consumer Preview for free just to try it out. Read TechRadar's hands on review to see what all the fuss is about.
Meanwhile, it's been another interesting week in the world of tech, with several products catching our eye in particular.
Toshiba has unleashed yet another impressive and affordable LED TV, and we've also been taking a look at a lot of the new kit coming out of MWC.
It's been an exciting week, especially for gamers, and that's because the highly-anticipated Sony PS Vita has finally landed on UK and US shores. It's an excellent handheld gaming console and we had tons of fun reviewing it. But will the wobbly battery life and lack of polish with some of the software put gamers off?
Elsewhere we've also had our paws on the latest mobile handset from Motorola, the Droid 4. In our eyes it could well be the stand-out best QWERTY phone out there right now, but sadly it's only out in the US for the time being.
Netflix has also been heavily on the radar this week, and Philips has launched a very interesting little streamer designed especially for users of this service.
We published our PS Vita review this week. The Vita has generated as much buzz over the years as any of the top smartphones, and it's easy to see why. Its specs are top of the line, and offer a mobile gaming experience far beyond anything that's been possible up to now.
But it's not all been about the Vita this week. We've also been playing with the Nokia Lumia 710, a budget Windows Phone aiming to do battle with the likes of the HTC Radar. And the budget theme is continued with the Kogan TV we reviewed yesterday.
A 55-inch LED, Freeview HD TV for under $1000. You've got to be kidding, right?
