Sony proves you can't half-ass a set-top box with the PS Vita TV

A little while ago, Sony announced it's own low priced set-top box, the PS Vita TV, launching initially in Japan. It's priced similarly to our own Apple TV yet offering something Apple's box does not – directly – in the form of gaming. But, as the first reviews appear, it seems Sony's half-assed approach of ripping the PS Vita and sticking it on your TV doesn't make the box of our dreams.

Sony Cyber-shot QX10 review

In Berlin, back in early September, Sony gathered members of the press together to introduce its fall range of products. Along side TVs, cameras and Android phones was the Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100. These 'lens cameras' are a unique product, in so much that there is a whole compact camera housed within something which looks just like a lens. The killer feature; the cameras connect to your iPhone or Android phone for that connected camera experience without the added expense of something like the Samsung Galaxy line of cameras. We've had a QX10 for a couple of weeks now, so is Sony onto a winner, or does it solve a problem that no-one really has? Let's find out.

Popular camera application, Camera360, has announced that a forthcoming update will add support for Sony's QX10 and QX100 clip-on camera to use when the device is connected to your iPhone.

First look at the Sony Cyber-shot QX10 and the iPhone 5

I'm on location in Berlin this week at IFA 2013 – primarily helping out the guys at Android Central – but Sony dropped a new product in their press conference that bears interest to iPhone owners as well as those carrying an Android phone. After weeks of leaked information, the Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100 were formally introduced to the world as a camera attachment for your smartphone. Well, a camera attachment for your Android or iOS smartphone, at least. I've managed to get hold of the less expensive model, the QX10, to spend some quality time with it. I've had it less than 24 hours, but I've been using it all day to try and get a feel for it, so here's some early thoughts.

New Sony 'Lens Camera' leak would look great with a gold iPhone 5S

We've heard rumors of an iOS compatible 'Lens Camera' attachment from Sony before, and that the rumored device will be compatible with iOS. The latest leaked image not only suggests a name – Smart Shot – but also a new, interesting looking white and gold color scheme. Perfect for that gold iPhone 5s that we're expecting to see announced on September 10.
