Counterclockwise: Sony Ericsson T68i, Nokia 7650 and the rise of the cameraphone

The first portable digital camera was likely the Fuji DS-1P from 1988, that's the predecessor of modern DSLRs. But we'll turn your attention to the Game Boy Camera instead - a 1998 accessory for the Game Boy that was credited as the "world's smallest digital camera" by Guinness World Records. It plugged into the cartridge slot and took photos with 256 x 224px resolution and 4 black levels (it couldn't capture color). The camera came with a built-in image editor (presaging Snapchat's filters) and animation (HTC Zoe, the early days). You could even buy a printer, similar to the ZINK...



The new iPhones will create a sales boom, analyst predict 350M sales in 1 year

A new analyst report obtained by 9to5Mac claims that the upcoming trio of iPhones will create a massive wave of upgrades in a 12 to 18 month period. The GBH Insights report points at 350M iPhones sales for that period due to the diversity Apple is going to offer to its customers. Last year's iPhones sold well but weren't enough to convince a large number of old iPhone owners to upgrade. That's due to the incremental upgrade the iPhone 8 brought over the iPhone 7 and the high price tag of the iPhone X. So users were either put off by the price of the iPhone X or didn't find a good...

Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 and Galaxy Book 12 hands-on

Samsung might have skipped on smartphone announcements at this year's MWC, but that doesn't mean the Korean giant didn't take the event seriously. On the contrary, the Barcelona venue saw a total of three tablet announcements, all clearly geared towards a more serious, productivity-oriented crowd. Sure, you could argue that the 10-bit HDR panel and 4-speaker AKG setup on the Tab S3 shout multimedia loud and clear. However, beyond that, Samsung's new lineup is all business, especially its two new Windows-based 2-in-1 offers. The Galaxy Book 10.6 and Galaxy Book 12 both run Windows 10...
