Nokia Lumia 1520 Hands-On: No Compromise

The phablet world just saw two new monsters roar into town — Nokia’s mammoth 6-inch, 1080p resolution-screened phone, the Gorilla Glass 2-displayed 1520, and a lower-specced 1320. We’ve been lucky enough to get our hands on ‘em.

Samsung Galaxy S III: Meet The New Android Emperor

Thanks to the previous Galaxy model’s success, Samsung is now the world’s biggest phone manufacturer, a title it will no doubt keep once the slim and pebble-like Galaxy S III hits globally. At 4.8 inches, you can tell Samsung worked really hard at retaining the slightly smaller Galaxy S II’s footprint, so despite the 22 per cent larger display, it’s only 16 per cent bigger than the S II.

Glucose-Measuring Implant Glows When Sugar Levels Increase

Instead of putting up with a mild pin-prick whenever your blood sugar levels need testing, Japanese scientists have invented a little implant that glows when the levels change. No pain, and a free glowstick for raves — high five, science!

Colour-Match Your USB Sticks To Your Other Pantone Tat

I was just browsing Pantone’s site — y’know, eyeing up their markers — when I noticed they sell customisable Pantone USB sticks. Not a bad little present for a design-fiend, and they start at just $US13 for 1GB. [Pantone]

Two Stores Selling Knock-Off Apple Gadgets Under Attack By Apple

China’s not the only country that has a problem with counterfeit Apple products — even NYC is plagued with knock-off iStuff, according to Reuters. The Queens area of New York City has seen two stores, Apple Story and Fun Zone, close.

We’ve seen countless examples of how the humble tube of toothpaste can be redesigned so every little drop can be put to good use, but designer Catherine Werdel’s toothbrush-squeezer might be my favourite yet. [Catherine Werdel via Fancy via OhGizmo]
