Sing when you’re winning, they say. Certainly Samsung is sticking to the same tune, when you see how it has barely altered anything in its latest Galaxy S5.

If last year’s Galaxy S4 seemed like a repeat of the same formula that has propelled the company to the number one spot in recent years, then 2014′s flagship phone will give you an even deeper sense of deja vu.

When tens of thousands of athletes, fans, media, officials and volunteers descended on Sochi for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games last month, the organisers faced a considerable challenge: to ensure a reliable and efficient network experience to match a world-class event.

It took 18 months leading up to the event for network equipment vendor Avaya to develop and deploy 2,500 wireless access points across all venues, including Olympic Villages, competition venues, data centres and more.

Like its first foray into Singapore through the budget Redmi phone, Xiaomi’s high-end Mi3 comes packed with features at a very reasonable price. The much-awaited S$419 phone, however, doesn’t seem to punch as hard as its smaller, cheaper sibling when it comes to being a giant killer.

LG’s new top-end phone, the G Pro 2, will be out in Singapore by the end of March, with the promise a huge screen and improved camera.

Unveiled at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona last month, the Android phone sports a giant 5.9-inch full HD screen – one of the largest for a smartphone. It also touts much better multi-tasking, similar to what fellow Korean manufacturer Samsung is offering in some of its Android tablets.

Team collaboration is the lifeblood of success in any business, so it’s no surprise that many tech companies – from Internet start-ups to IT bigwigs – are cracking their heads to create tools that help workers collaborate better.

Months after it first appeared in the United States, Microsoft’s updated Surface 2 tablet is finally making it way to Singapore tomorrow.

The 10.6-inch tablet now comes with a Full HD screen and sports a faster Nvidia Tegra 4 processor. There’s also a “dual-stage” kick stand, so you can adjust the angle of tilt, well, at least a little more than before.
