Samsung Galaxy II could drive memory card sales29 July 2011 15:35:31
People looking for a stylish mobile phone may be interested to hear the Samsung Galaxy SII is set to be made available in white next month.
That is according to Clove, which suggested the handset will be available to buy in the shade from August 15th.
Is stated: "This model is exactly the same as the 16GB black model, the only difference being the colour. The same stand out features, the same excellent reviews."
That means people looking to get their hands on it could benefit from the opportunity to record and playback videos in high definition.
It points out that it provides the user with 1080p Full HD Recording and suggests "every moment is a potential masterpiece in the making", an assertion that could prompt people into buying a new memory card.
Alternatively, technology fans may prefer to hold out for the iPhone 5, which Mark Gurman, of website 9to5Mac, recently said could feature voice-navigation.
August release date for Deus Ex: Human Revolution29 July 2011 15:33:14
Deus Ex: Human Revolution will soon be on sale to consumers after Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal revealed it is ready for production.
Owners of an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PC will be able to grab the title when it is given its European release on August 26th and may also be keen to ensure they can save their progress with memory cards.
According to its creators consumers will be able to immerse themselves in a near-future world where a series of challenges need to be overcome by the games hero Adam Jensen, a man who has been "cybernetically augmented against his choice".
Eidos-Montreal general manager Stephane D'Astous said: "As the first release for Eidos-Montreal, it's impossible to express how extremely proud we are of the final product and all of the hard work that went into its creation."
The original critically-acclaimed Deux Ex was released for PC in 2000.
iPad 'the fastest growing games platform'29 July 2011 15:30:56
The iPad is proving an increasingly popular option for people to play games on, despite being relatively new to the market, it has been suggested.
John Riccitiello, chief executive officer of EA, told IndustryGamers that the console market is changing.
"Consoles used to be 80 per cent of the industry as recently as 2000. Consoles today are 40 per cent of the game industry, so what do we really have?" he asked.
He suggested the Apple tablet is currently the firm's "fastest growing platform", so it matters little that Nintendo's forthcoming console Wii U only has the same sort of graphics capabilities as the PlayStation.
The cycles of change that used to be seen in the industry are no longer occurring, he added.
People lucky enough to own an iPad will find a wide variety of titles available to them from the App Store.
One that may appeal is Groove Coaster, which is available for 69 pence - rather than the standard price of £1.99 - until August 7th.
