It’s our third day in Berlin for IFA 2013, Europe’s biggest tech conference, and the announcements and demos just keep coming. We got our hands on a new challenger in the smartwatch wars, the Sony SmartWatch 2, and got a feel for its Android interface. Lenovo announced its new IdeaCentre All-in-One Table PC, and on the lighter side showed off their super-thin IdeaPad Yoga 2 hybrid laptop. We also tried out the impressive 20.7-MP camera on the Sony Xperia Z1 and took a look at the Encore Tablet, Toshiba’s answer to the iPad Mini. Check out our hands-on videos to get up close and personal with the tech world’s newest gear.
Sony's Android-powered SmartWatch 2 features a 1.6-inch, 220 x 176-pixel transflective LCD display, which is a bit smaller and lower resolution than the Galaxy Gear’s 1.63-inch, 320 x 320 Super AMOLED screen. Unlike Samsung's show-stealer however, Sony's watch works under 3 feet of water and, because a number of developers have been hard at work on software for the SmartWatch 2, there are more than 300 available apps for it.
