The OTHER Product Announcements from IFA (so far)

IFA Logo

I think it’s fair to say that Samsung stole the show yesterday at the annual IFA consumer electronics show. Since that event wrapped up there has been a deluge of other Android product announcements from the likes of Sony, Asus, LG, HTC, Nokia, Lenovo and Huawei—all of which I’m going to try to summarize for you here as efficiently as possible.

As if the insane amount of news coming out of Berlin wasn’t enough, there’s also a Motorola event happening today in Chicago, but it’s apparently a private, press-only affair. I hope to report on that tomorrow; in the meantime, consider this your IFA news round-up!
