Looks like something big is happening down at the ZTE camp. The company's just tweeted that it'll be launching 'advanced gaming smartphone' in just six days time. That'll be next Wednesday, July 18, then. We saw plenty of devices from ZTE at Mobile World Congress this year, including smartphones and tablets, but nothing which quite matches this description. We're eager to see how ZTE's new stuff differentiates itself from previous gaming-focused phones, including the ill-fated Nokia N-Gage, and the Sony Xperia Play, which wasn't exactly a resounding success.
So roll on next week, and we'll let you know what they have lined up for us. We will of course be at the event to bring you full coverage of whatever ZTE announces.
Last year, we called the Garmin Venu 2 a fantastic device that cost far too much for what it offered. Now, Garmin has released a new version with mostly the same specs but some small upgrades for $50 more. Despite that, the Venu 2 Plus may be worth the cost for you!
The NVIDIA Shield TV lets you enjoy couch multiplayer gaming experiences again, thanks to the excellent support for third-party Bluetooth controllers! Unfortunately, there are a lot of controllers to choose from, so you'll want to find a great balance of form and function to hold up for those long gaming sessions.
