Apple fans, the time has finally come. We have seen a number of exciting new devices announced in the past few weeks — check out our hands-on previews of the Galaxy Note 4 and Motorola’s new Moto X for two great examples. But nothing, and we mean nothing, has been as hotly anticipated as Apple’s huge iPhone 6, iPhone phablet and iWatch announcements.

Now, after months of leaks and rumors, it’s finally time for Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup and its first ever wearable device to become a reality. More →

It might not have been what we expected, but Sony is coming into E3 2014 as the console maker to beat. With more exclusives, better specs and a less imposing price tag, the PS4 won the first battle of the new generation. Now, Sony might have taken an early lead, but with all the recent changes over at the Xbox camp, the most popular video game console of the generation needs to keep getting better to stay on top.

Microsoft has a golden opportunity at E3 this year. After a tumultuous reveal, filled with consumer outrage and terrible Xbox 180 puns, Microsoft managed to right the ship, bringing the Xbox One in line with the vision that the public saw fit. Despite trailing behind the PS4, Xbox One sales have been extraordinary. With a steady stream of software updates and a continuous effort to please the fans, Microsoft is entering E3 as strong as it has been since the Xbox One launched last year. More →

Live from Facebook’s Android event

Various reports over the past few years have suggested that Facebook (FB) is developing its own smartphone, but nothing has materialized yet. Instead, Facebook continues to expand its mobile products across various mobile platforms, and we expect the company to further its efforts today. According to earlier reports, Facebook will unveil new “Facebook Home” Android software that features deep integration with several Facebook services. The software is expected to be available across a number of Android smartphones, and rumors suggest it will be showcased on the upcoming “HTC First” smartphone rather than an own-brand “Facebook Phone.” All will be revealed momentarily though, and our live coverage of Facebook’s press conference follows below.

Research In Motion (RIMM) is largely responsible for shaping the modern smartphone, but the company rested on its laurels and sat still while the rest of the industry underwent a major shift. The result is the debacle RIM faces today. The future of the company now rests squarely on RIM’s next-generation BlackBerry 10 platform, and the world will now get its first official glimpse at the two new smartphones that mark the start of RIM’s comeback attempt. We already know plenty about the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry X10 smartphones thanks to a series of leaks, but today we’ll hear all the key details surrounding these two phones straight from the horse’s mouth. We should also find out preliminary launch details during today’s event, as well as with some details about RIM’s sales and marketing strategies. Our live coverage of RIM’s BlackBerry 10 unveiling follows below.

We’re live at HTC’s (2498) press conference , which is set to get started in just a few minutes. What will HTC announce?

Rumors suggest HTC has some Windows Phone news in store and whatever the company announces, the big question on everyone’s mind is: Will it be enough to keep Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone 5 and Samsung’s (005930) Galaxy smartphones from stealing the holiday season? Hit the break for our live coverage of HTC’s press conference, which is scheduled to start at 11:00 a.m. EDT, 8:00 a.m. PDT.

Nokia Windows Phone 8 Live-Blog

Nokia (NOK) has seen limited interest in its early Windows Phones, but not nearly enough to prevent three consecutive quarterly losses that topped $1 billion each. 2012 is a year of transition for Microsoft’s (MSFT) software platforms, however, and Microsoft previewed its next-generation Windows Phone 8 platform back in June. Nokia is Microsoft’s premier Windows Phone partner, and now we finally get to see what the Finnish vendor has in store for its new line of Lumia smartphones. Recent leaks suggest the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 will be among the handsets Nokia unveils today, but who knows what else might be in store? Our live coverage of Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 press conference, which is scheduled to begin at around 10:00 a.m. Eastern, follows below.

UPDATE: Sorry, guys — the site crashed midway through our coverage of Nokia’s event due to ridiculous traffic volume. We apologize for the inconvenience and recommend you check out our hands-on post with the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. More →

Microsoft Tablet Event Live Blog

After saving things for the very last minute in an effort to keep today’s news under wraps, Microsoft is finally ready to get the show under way here in Los Angeles, California. The topic of today’s event is still something of a mystery, though a pair of well-sourced reports from last week suggest Microsoft is about to enter the the tablet game with its first own-brand offering. Microsoft is no stranger to hardware, though it has seen mixed results in the past; the Xbox 360 is still the best-selling console in the world seven years after its 2005 debut, but the Zune player was a mess from start to finish. Nothing is confirmed until we hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, however, so hit the jump to follow BGR’s live coverage of today’s event, which is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. Eastern, 3:30 p.m. Pacific.
