In just three years, virtual reality has gone from a curiosity (sparked by a crowdfunding indie startup called Oculus VR) to a new category of consumer product that many consider to be "the next big thing." Never one to shy away from such things, Samsung has partnered with Oculus to launch the first consumer VR headset that matters. Meet the groundbreaking Gear VR.
If you're shopping for a smartphone, this is the best time of year to do it. Not only do many of the best handsets launch around this time, but if you keep your eyes open, you can also find some sweet deals. Let Gizmag help with your decision, as we compare some of the best smartphones of 2015.
The iPad Pro is a strange device. Like other Apple products, it has a premium, polished design and is (in some ways) delightful to use. But it also shows Apple playing the unfamiliar role of follower – and (in some ways) not doing a particularly good job of it. Read on, as Gizmag reviews the fun but slightly illogical iPad Pro.

We reviewed the Samsung Gear S2 soon after it launched, but we now have its better-looking fraternal twin, the Gear S2 Classic, in house. Let's take a quick look at Samsung's US$50 more expensive smartwatch that looks like a real watch.
The iPad Pro is clearly Apple's attempt to make a Surface-like 2-in-1, though the company is framing this 1st-gen version more as a canvas for artists. We have the new tablet in house, along with some early thoughts.
Pebble has been something of a pioneer in smartwatches, blowing up Kickstarter with its original Pebble watch back when wearable tech wasn't much more than a concept. The company's latest smartwatch has one killer feature, but its pricing puts it in the Bermuda triangle of smartwatches.
When Oculus VR and Samsung announced the consumer Gear VR at Oculus Connect in September, they promised that it would arrive before the Black Friday shopping frenzy begins. Today they made good on that promise, putting the mobile virtual reality headset up for pre-order with a November 20 ship date.
