[IFA 2014] Sony Announces The Xperia Z3, Xperia Z3 Compact, Xperia E3, And Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact

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.

Verizon Releases The Gigantic LG G Vista And The Rugged Kyocera Brigadier, $99 Each On-Contract, With Little Fanfare [Update]

Update: Verizon's specification page has been changed to indicate that the LG G Vista has an "HD" screen. It looks like there was an error in the original spec list. We're going to assume that means that it's a 1280x720 screen.

Samsung Makes The Galaxy S5 Mini Official: 'Mini' Is The New 'Cheap'

Okay, you've heard the jokes: "mini" phones are, at this point, considerably larger than the "big" high-end phones of previous years. So let's just assume that whenever Samsung employs the word "mini" in the name of a device, it means "looks kinda like the other one, but cheaper."
