In mid-2010, Sony released the highly successful NEX-3 Compact. It sported a huge 14.2 MP sensor, a large adjustable screen, interchangeable lenses and could shoot 720p HD video. Oddly enough, Sony decided that despite its success they would then take it off the shelves after only 8 months of availability. It seems now however that its successor is getting ready to take the stand.
Leaked shots of the NEX-C3 have been spotted and it looks to build on the reputation of its predecessor. For a start it comes with a 16.2MP image sensor, the same sensor used in the Sony A55 DSLR. It will most likely support full 1080p HD video recording and as you can see in the image above, comes with a far more impressive flash than that of the NEX-3. It also keeps the interchangeable lens functionality and the tiltable LCD screen. Read more »

This lets you update without having to wait for your carrier (great for WP7 users on AT&T as their February and March updates are still at the “testing” stages). This unofficial update is completely carrier-independent so it works for everyone. Read more »
