Whether you're a sports fan or not, you have probably heard the name Sir Alex Ferguson this morning. He's the outgoing manager of the Manchester United football team in the UK — a job he's been doing since 1986. To put that in perspective: Sir Fergie has been doing that job since before I was born. Meanwhile, Nokia has spied an opportunity in Sir Alex's retirement, and is offering him a special edition Lumia 920 for his time at the club in the hopes that he'll switch.


iSheep and Fandroids have been at war for as long as we can all remember while the rest of us just sit back and marvel at the untold destruction these two factions wreak on their ability to attract the opposite sex. Nokia is now getting in on the factional fanboy fracas with a new ad that sees Android and Apple fans fight at a wedding. Spoiler: this is awesome.


HTC has done more for Australia than you realise. It was the first big manufacturer to introduce Android into the country via a major telco, and went on to make some incredible gear. Things tapered off in the last few years, and we wondered if we would ever see an Android-powered HTC handset that made us believe in the company again. Enter the HTC One: the saviour, the hero, the new yardstick.


Remember when Sony could do no wrong? Back in the days of awesome CRT TVs, Discmans, Walkmans, miniDisc players and killer sound systems? The shine has been off Sony's apple over the last few years, but ever since last year's IFA tech fair in Germany, we've been seeing hints of the Sony sparkle here and there. With the release of the Sony Xperia Z, however, it's confirmed: the magic is back at Sony, and this is the best handset it has ever made.


You can be on the cutting edge of fashion, the very definition of style and the king or queen of cool, but if you're carrying around an old junker for a smartphone it's all for nought. Here are the best handsets for living large.


The smartphone market of 2012 has seen some heated competition. The usual contenders all released solid hardware. But the dynamic between them changed, too — Windows Phone arrived as a serious third OS option, and 2012 ended with exciting new models of iPhone and Android devices. Here's a look at the best new products people put in their pockets this year.


The Lumia 920 is hogging the smartphone spotlight right now. Telstra — the 920's exclusive carrier — sold out of device pre-orders and now people are scrounging to find one before launch day. Look a little to either side of the 920's hype, though, and you'll see its younger sibling: the Lumia 820. Saddled onto Optus and Vodafone, this junior model may not be the compromise we thought it was.


There's no question that the Nokia Lumia 920 is one of the most anticipated hardware releases this year. Telstra, the exclusive retailer of the new Lumia, has this afternoon suspended pre-orders due to stock exhaustion. Harvey Norman was meant to start shipping the Lumia 920 as of tomorrow, but that's now changed. Sources are this afternoon telling me that Harvey Norman was pushed to do so by Telstra.
