The PlayStation Vita, Sony's latest portable gaming console, has had a rough start in life. According to VGChartz, it has only sold about 5.7 million units worldwide since launch compared to the 33.5 million units sold by its primary competitor, the Nintendo 3DS.

The QX100 is one of two new add-on cameras that can be mounted on mobile devices, such as ...

As any regular Gizmag reader will know, there’s currently quite an assortment of add-on lenses available for smartphone cameras. The problem is, no matter how good those lenses may be, the light ultimately ends up having to squeeze through the phone’s own tiny lens, to be processed by the phone’s tiny sensor. Sony is taking a fresh approach, however, with its much-rumored but just-officially-announced Cyber-shot QX series of lens-style cameras.  Read More
