Gobii IVP: Kalahari’s smartphone cheapie reviewed

The gobii IVP smartphone is the latest low-cost handset from Naspers-owned e-retailer Kalahari.com. The gobii IVP joins the gobii tablet and eReader products, which were launched late last year.

Vodacom’s R549 smartphone reviewed

Vodacom launched the first US$50 smartphone on its network this week and, although the Smart Kicka, which retails for R549, is aimed at the low-end of the market that until now hasn’t been able to afford anything beyond a basic feature phone, it’s a surprisingly good device.

Beats Studio review: thump

Beats Studio review: thump

Beats headphones are often shunned by audiophiles, who claim that the bass-heavy audio does not accurately reproduce sound. This is criticism we hear regularly from readers and tech-savvy users. The thicker sound, which is the signature of all Beats headphones, works well for some music genres

TechCentral is South Africa’s online technology news leader. We don’t say that lightly. We believe we produce the country’s best and most insightful online tech news aimed at industry professionals and those interested in the fast-changing world of technology.

We provide news, reviews and comment, without fear or favour, that is of direct relevance to our fast-expanding audience. Proportionately, we provide the largest local audience of all technology-focused online publishers.

We do not constantly regurgitate press releases to draw in search engine traffic — we believe websites that do so are doing their readers and advertisers a disservice. Nor do we sell “editorial features”, offer advertising “press offices” or rely on online bulletin-board forums of questionable value to advertisers to bolster our traffic.

TechCentral, which is edited and written by award-winning South African journalists, cares about delivering top-quality content to draw in the business and consumer readers that are of most interest to technology advertisers.

We’d like the opportunity to demonstrate the value of directing a portion of your advertising budget to TechCentral, whether your company is in the technology field or not.
