Week in Tech
Nokia shocks, Galaxy Gears and everything IFA

You know those weeks where you get a year's worth of news in just seven days? This is one of those weeks. First up, news that Microsoft is buying Nokia's phone business. "The big question is whether it'll work," says Gary Marshall. Apple is the dream, but the outcome could be more Blackberry.

We also learned the Xbox One release date: it's going to trail the PS4 in America, but beat it by a week in Europe. And in a move that shocked and saddened Key Lime Pie fans everywhere, Google announced that Android 4.4 will be known as KitKat. It's even teamed up with Nestle for the whole thing. So much for not being evil, eh?

We might be days away from seeing Apple's legendary and quite possibly fictional iWatch, so the announcement of Samsung's Galaxy Gear smartwatch could be something of a spoiler. In our Galaxy Gear review, Gareth Beavis explains that it’s priced high and suffers from a "laggy and buggy interface." Also, it's a horse, says Gary Marshall: "Henry Ford famously said that he didn't ask people what they wanted, because they would have asked for faster horses. The Galaxy Gear is a faster horse." It's essentially Samsung's 2009 smartwatch, the S9110, given an update.

IFA in Berlin is the world's largest consumer electronics show, so naturally we were all over this year's exhibits. You'll find all the details in our exhaustive guide to IFA 2013, which COME IN WEEK IN TECH YOUR TIME IS UP!
