The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is the only new 10.1-inch Android tablet to launch this year. And with no one to contend against, it is commanding a substantial premium in the market. This is not any run-of-the-mill tablet, though. The care and polish delivered by Sony is simply brilliant as we’ll see in a bit.
Lava has just launched its newest smartphone in its ever-expanding Iris line-up—the Iris 504Q. Lava is targeting the mid-end segment with its price tag of Rs 13,499, and is looking to compete directly with the likes of Micromax’s Canvas line-up. Let’s see if it can compete, shall we?

After showing us a teaser yesterday, Irrational Games has released the latest trailer for BioShock Infinite. The trailer, dubbed the Lamb of Columbia trailer, gives us a very close look at the gameplay and story of the game.
Much like the teaser, the trailer shows us some of the gorgeous vistas from the floating city of Columbia where the game is set to take place. Another thing we get to see is the relationship between Elizabeth and DeWitt. Looking at the power that Elizabeth commands, I believe it's a good thing that she's supposed to be on our side. Going by the trailer, the game will have a lot of varied environments, some out in the open and some indoors and claustrophobic.

The big difference between the PC and the console versions of the game is that the PC version gives players the ability to remap all the default action bindings, with both primary and alternate bindings being available simultaneously. The company has also made it a point to not include artificial mouse smoothing and has given the option to toggle mouse acceleration in the game's options menu.
The game will also include a bunch of options for those who prefer controllers. There are three separate controller layouts—Default, Marksman and Retro—each of which supports different configuration options. The options let players tweak things like aim assist, sensitivity, vibration and inversion. It also includes options to switch around controls for left-handed people, or for those who prefer the N64 controller layout.
The company is also giving the PC version a lot of options on the graphics side of things. The game will have full widescreen support by implementing the "horizontal plus" system. In the system, the wider the resolution, the more players will be able to see on the screen. It will also support setups that have multiple monitor with support for AMD Eyefinity, Nvidia Surround and Matrox TripleHead2Go. There will also be separate controls for aspect ratio, resolution and display mode.
