Sony's been in the Android-powered smartwatch game for years now, but with the release of the third iteration of its straightforwardly-named "SmartWatch" line, the company is transitioning to Android Wear.

The SmartWatch 3 is an unapologetically plastic product. Rather than the usual black brick with a cheap strap, the band on Sony's watch comes in to wrap around the body of the device. This provides it with a look that sets it apart from the competition, though this also means it will probably show more wear and tear with age.

Here at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Sony is announcing new entries to its Xperia smartphone line at all levels. The flagship Z series, last updated only six months ago at Mobile World Congress, has been bolstered with the Xperia Z3. This device is the tip top of Sony's line, though in terms of sheer hardware it's an evolution rather than a revolution. The 5.2-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 801 processor (bumped up to 2.5Ghz), and 20.7MP rear camera are similar to the last iteration, but the body is much thinner at 7.3mm.

With every major event, like CES, IFA, or MWC, you can count on one thing: new stuff from ASUS. At this year's IFA conference, the company not only unveiled its first Android Wear watch, but also a handful of other devices, including a rehashed version of the MeMO Pad 7. The MeMO line has been a great choice for those looking to grab a seven inch tablet without breaking the bank, and this year's model shows a lot of promise for not a lot of dollars.

At this year's IFA, Asus has removed the layer of secrecy surrounding its upcoming Android Wear-powered ZenWatch. Unlike the Moto 360 or the LG G Watch R, Asus is not trying to wow us here with a circular display. The ZenWatch distinguishes itself by fitting a square screen behind a layer of curved glass and a hardware design that strives to be more than a plastic wrist computer. The watch sports a brown leather strap that's intended to add to its appeal.

As expected, Samsung has taken the lid off the Gear VR headset at this year's IFA in Berlin. The concept behind the company's attempt at virtual reality consists of pairing a Galaxy Note 4 with a bulky head unit, using the handset to supply both the display and the power. The product comes from Samsung, but its software has been created by Oculus. An early-access beta version is set to become available for eager techies and developers later this year.

It's hard to believe something as wacky as Sony's QX series of add-on smartphone lenses could be considered "conventional." But compared to the QX1 leaked yesterday, which may allow any Sony E-series lens to mount onto a standard phone, the new QX30 is rather plain. Sony Alpha Rumors posted shots of the newest member of the QX family, which includes an impressive 30x optical zoom (4.3mm-129mm) in the same form factor.

  • 16MP rear camera with "smart OIS" / 3.7MP f1.9 front camera

Just about every major electronics manufacturer has something to show off at IFA 2014, and Acer is no exception. Amidst announcements for a handful of new laptop models, a few tablets made it on stage for a little bit of time in the spotlight. In a creative twist, the two Android tablets featured during the presentation were equipped with significantly different processors. Acer's Iconia One 8 is packing a quad-core processor from Intel while the Iconia Tab 10 is equipped with a MediaTek quad-core processor.

There are plenty of things you can do with a smart device strapped to your wrist that happens to be full of motion and orientation sensors. For instance, you can get quick tips on your golf game with VimoGolf. Just fire it up on the watch, and take a swing.

There's nothing like spoiling a surprise just hours before it becomes official, we're sorry. (Not really.) Samsung is set to announce its latest addition to the Note series of phones later today at IFA in Berlin. As we've seen many times in the past, secrets rarely wait to be told, and an image of the brand new handset has already made its way out into the world. But the image reveals a special treat: Samsung is having twins!
