The Galaxy Round can literally rock and roll. Samsung's newest smartphone, which features the first curved display, launches Oct. 10 in Korea — but it won't be cheap.
Korean media outlets are reporting that the Galaxy Round, available in a "Luxury Brown" color, will cost around 1.089 million won, which is about $1,012. Although the Galaxy Round isn't quite ready for the mass market, a phone with a 5.7-inch super AMOLED curved display is an interesting proof of concept.
Two new features incorporate the rounded screen into the software. Roll Effect displays information like date, time, missed messages, and battery life when the phone is rocked to its side. With Side Mirror, users can select next and previous content by tilting the device left and right.
According to Samsung, the phone is more comfortable to hold because of its curved hardware and provides a true one-handed operation experience. Will the Galaxy Round become available in the US? We're not sure — but we are sure that more flexible displays are in our future. LG announced that production of bendable screens has begun, and patent applications indicate that flexible devices are on Apple's radar as well.
- Display — 5.7-inch Full HD Super Flexible AMOLED
- Memory — 32GB + microSD (up to 64GB); 3GB RAM
- OS — Android 4.3 Jellybean
- Camera — Rear-facing: 13MP AF with flash; front-facing: 2MP
- Size — 151.1ⅹ79.6ⅹ7.9 mm; 154g
- Processor — 2.3 GHz Quad Krait

Apple's illustrious design disciple, Jony Ive aka the man behind the iPhone, iPod, and iOS 7, is putting his signature rounded corners on another gadget: a limited-edition Leica M for (RED) camera that will be auctioned off at Sotheby's New York event benefitting The Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. Jony teamed up with fellow designer Marc Newson to create the latest Leica M digital rangefinder camera, a process that required over 500 models and 1,000 prototype parts, before arriving at the finished design.
The Leica M for (RED) is part of a collection of iconic designs curated for the Nov. 23 auction by Jony and Marc. Seeing how Apple EarPods in solid rose gold and a Russian cosmonaut suit are some of the other items up for bidding, it doesn't look like the limited-edition Leica M (typically $7,000 and up) is in our price range.
But we can dream, right? In the gallery, take a closer look at the classic camera's Jony Ive redesign, and learn more about the Leica's standout features. Click the button with arrows in the upper right corner to give the Leica full-screen glory.

"Emergency. There's carbon monoxide in the bedroom. Move to fresh air." This is what you'd hear if you had Nest Protect, a WiFi-enabled smoke detector that uses a human voice to alarm you instead of incessant beeping.
Protect is the latest home appliance gadget from Nest Labs, maker of the mobile-device-connected, money-saving Nest Thermostat. It's a smart, wall-mounted alarm made for the 21st century that does a lot more than just detect smoke.
Six types of sensors — heat, carbon monoxide, smoke, light, ultrasonic, and activity — work in tandem to decipher what's actually going on below. An early warning signal that begins with "Heads-up!" will activate once Nest Protect detects rising levels of smoke or carbon monoxide. If there's just burned popcorn in the microwave, a simple hand wave beneath the device will quiet the alarm.
A distress signal that sounds like a human voice may seem strange, but it's not just a gimmick. According to Nest, children can sleep through beeps, which is why the Protect uses a female voice to accompany the alarm sounds.
Since it's connected to WiFi, Nest Protect can also tip off a smartphone or tablet with a message that details which sensors are activated, the level of danger, and the source of the smoke or carbon monoxide. The app also offers a list of recommended actions in case of an emergency. It can also pair with Nest Thermostat and shut down a gas furnace during a carbon monoxide leak.
Beyond danger detection, the Nest Protect has different practical uses. Since installation of the Protect requires it to be mounted high on a wall or ceiling, it can serve as a natural night light or LED path light.
From refrigerators to thermostats, technology is making everyday home appliances more intelligent and connected. But is being more plugged in a good thing? Or are we relying too much on tech in our homes?
The Nest Protect can be preordered today in white or black and in wired 120V or battery versions for $129.
