A lens-shaped body for your smartphone

Camera phone or phone camera? The Sony Cyber-shot QX100 and QX10 are no ordinary cameras. Sony fit the entire camera into a lens-shaped body that snaps onto your smartphone. Once you snap a photo with the camera, it shows up on your phone's screen, where you can edit it, save it, and share it over text, e-mail, or to your social networks immediately.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for 2014 was unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear smartwatch at technology trade show IFA in Berlin this week. Like the Note 3, the Note 10.1 sports a svelte new leather-effect rear casing edged with stitching -- perhaps a riposte to the criticism drawn by the glossy plastic back of previous Notes and the Galaxy S4.
