Asus’s Transformer Pad has been a go-to gadget for clued-in tablet cum laptop fans for some time. This new version, unveiled at IFA and due to hit UK tech emporia by the end of the year, is a cut above. As well as packing Google Android, it has a super-bright 10.1-inch LED backlit display, 5 megapixel camera, HDMI support an SD card reader and a decent 13 house battery life when used as a tablet. That drops to four hours when docked as a laptop, still not bad for knocking out presentations and reports.

And we don’t just mean its ability to withstand getting dunked in water (or a pint of lager for that matter). Its camera is hugely impressive, packing in 20.7 megapixels and a Sony G lens, the Japanese giant claiming it’s the best camera phone out there. That’s a bold claim against the likes of Nokia’s Lumia 1020. But with dedicated camera apps and the ability to clip on Sony’s new QX10 and QX100 detachable lenses (of which more shortly), the Z1 is as much a compact camera as it is a smartphone.topSony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony Xperia Z1 - 2(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras These nifty little lenses can be clipped onto a Sony Xperia Z1 or any smartphone, serving up images that are a cut above the usual social media fodder you associate with camera phones. Working with a dedicated ‘Play Memories’ app for iOS and Android, it essentially turns your phone into a compact snapper, with Sony controls on your screen. The QX10 has a 10x optical zoom and 18 megapixel sensor, costing £179. The swankier QX100 comes in at £399, with 20 megapixels. Both can be nabbed now.topSony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Sony QX10 and QX100 lens cameras  - 3(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear Sammy’s smart watch was the undoubted star of IFA 2013, with a UK release date expected this side of December festivities. The device hooks up with Sammy’s top-end smartphones, including the IFA-unveiled Galaxy Note 3, to serve up message details, app info and fitness features. It can also make and take calls, although we can say with some certainty this will make you look somewhat ludicrous. The savvy timepiece is expected to cost around €300 on these shores, although Phones4U has said it’ll flog it at a €100 discount with the Galaxy Note 3. A steal if you’re a hardcore first adopter with a Dick Tracey fetish.topSamsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Gear  - 4(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Samsung’s latest phablet is also its best so far. As well as playing nice with the Galaxy Gear, it is absolutely laden with top-end specs, including 4G connectivity. Its 5.7-inch display is absurdly bright, it has a massive 3GB of RAM, an octacore processor and a 13 megapixel camera. Basically, if you want a device that does its all to put Apple’s new iPhones in the shade, then this is the one for you. Every network is stocking it and it’s hitting shelves at the end of this month.topSamsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 3  - 5(©MSN)Asus Transformer Pad TF701TAsus’s Transformer Pad has been a go-to gadget for clued-in tablet cum laptop fans for some time.

It has a brighter screen than Apple’s effort, with 215 pixels per inch compared to 163. It uses Google Android and tips the scales at just 244g. With cheap tablets proliferating, this could be a great option if you’re on a budget, but are desperate for a second screen to Tweet nonsense about The X Factor.topLenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)Lenovo S5000  - 7(©MSN)LG G2Unveiled in August, but touted at IFA too, LG’s new flagship phone is a unique beast. It has volume and power controls round the back, instead of on the side. That means the display has a more edge-to-edge look and at 5.2-inches, there’s certainly plenty of screen for you to gawp at. It has a 13 megapixel snapper, the latest Android software and offers a neat alternative to the plethora of top-end smartphones out there at the moment.topLG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)LG G2 - 8(©MSN)HTC One Max Ok, this phone never made its debut at IFA 2013, despite every tech gossip hound expecting to see it on the show floor. However, extensive leaks suggest it will not only be here soon, but also build on the gorgeous design of the HTC One, released earlier this year. Its screen will come in at just under 6-inches, making it more tablet than smartphone, while it’ll rock the latest version of Android and HTC’s own Sense custom skin. Rumours abound of a quad-core processor and even an iPhone 5s-aping fingerprint scanner. The One Max is expected to hit shelves well ahead of the Christmas rush.topHTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)HTC One Max  - 9(©MSN)Nikon Coolpix P7800 Nikon’s newest top-end compact is a stunner. An upgrade on 2012’s P7700, it comes with an electronic viewfinder, 7.1x optical zoom, 12.2 megapixels and a 3-inch flip out screen. Early reviews suggest this is going to be one of the year’s hottest new cameras, so if you’re after something smaller than an SLR but with the high-end grunt of a pro camera, then this could be for you.

As well as packing next-gen 4K display tech, it measures a massive 20-inches and comes with a special electronic touch pen. It’s aimed at businesses and design-focused professionals, although the thought of using it as our own Monday Night Football-style tactics screen means we’ve already started putting money aside for our own personal model.topPanasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)Panasonic Toughpad 4K  - 11(©MSN)
