Sony isn’t doing a great job of keeping those QX cameras secret – the press release for them plus the complete specifications have leaked, including pricing, and it’s still hours before the announcement event even starts. And yesterday we saw the promo video, too.
Most of the specs we’ve seen already, but there are questions regarding video recording and dimensions that had so far gone unanswered. And by the way, just for the record, the QX10 and QX100 are called “lens-style cameras”. Read more »

Along with the HTC Desire 601 and Desire 300 today, HTC also introduced a curious Bluetooth accessory, called HTC BoomBass. Now, portable Bluetooth speakers come a dime a dozen but this one is not a full-range speaker. Instead, it’s only a subwoofer, designed to amplify the bass sounds only.
