Reservations For The Ultra-Secure Turing Phone Are Now Open, Starting At $610 - No Billing Just Yet

If you've heard about the Turing phone, you're probably either extremely interested or extremely indifferent. (Is it possible to be indifferent to an extreme degree? Anyway.) The somewhat bombastic company has been showing off a device with a unique design and lofty claims of being "unhackable." It's more than vaporware, though - working prototypes have been shown at trade events, and now Turing is taking phone reservations via its website.

That's a very carefully chosen word, "reservations" - not pre-orders. This is because the Turing isn't actually asking for any money upfront. No, entering your contact information after selecting colors (black and purple, "Beowulf," red and blue, "Pharoh," or white and red, "Cardinal") and storage capacity (16GB for $610, 64GB for $740, or 128GB for $870) is more or less a statement of interest than any commitment to buy the phone on your part.

Pre-Order 'This War Of Mine' For Android And Get PC Version Instantly, Plus 15% Goes To Charity

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes good things happen to bad people. Sometimes things just happen. This unpredictability and grim reality forms the premise behind This War of Mine, a PC game from developer 11 Bit Studios that is on its way to Android.

Selection_001

This War of Mine grapples with the struggles of surviving in a city that's held under siege. You don't pick up firearms and shoot your way out the way most video games would have you confront the issue. You must find food and shelter while staying safe and maintaining the will to continue.

This change of focus results in a strategy game that presents you with truly difficult choices.

Sony's Adorable Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 Is Now Up For Pre-Order In Europe

Sony's upcoming Smart Bluetooth Speaker BSP60 (announced at this year's Mobile World Congress) is a tad on the cute side. It sits on your desk like an unassuming black ball, but that changes as soon as the music starts. Then its circular "ears" pop out and start glowing. Wheels on the bottom let the thing move in place like it can't fight the music. It's almost enough to make a grown man squee.

If you live in Europe, you can now call dibs on one of your own. Just know that it will set you back 300 euro. That price isn't nearly as endearing.

Razer's Forge TV Bundle Is Up For Pre-Order On Amazon, Release Date Set For May 1st

Let's be honest here: there hasn't been much movement for Android TV since the Nexus Player was released way back in November. Though Sony has committed to using ATV in its upcoming smart TVs, the actual availability of Google's latest set-top box is depressingly low. But two gaming-centric Android TV units are on the horizon, and one of them is from veteran PC accessory vendor Razer. The Forge TV now has an unconfirmed release date (May 1st) and at least one pre-order retailer (Amazon).

The only thing available at the moment, and indeed, the only hint of the Forge TV we've seen since its unveiling at CES in January, is the "Forge TV Bundle." This includes the tiny Android TV set-top box and a premium "Serval" controller for $150.
