Apple cooks up double iPhone launch

This week's big news was the launch of not one, but two new iPhones. First up, the iPhone 5C. It's "a cheaper iPhone, not a cheap iPhone," says our smartphone sensei Gareth Beavis, and that distinction is important: "The iPhone 5C feels so different to the iPhone 5S, buyers won't feel like they're buying a rubbish version of that device."

Where the 5C is fun and funky, the 5S promises a more sober experience: it doesn't look dissimilar to the iPhone 5, but it boasts a dramatically improved camera, a faster processor and a fingerprint sensor. This has already led to excited newspaper headlines about severed digits and conspiracy theories about it sending your biometric data to the NSA (it doesn't). Is it the future? It just might be.

If you'd like to know exactly how the iPhone 5S compares to the 5C, Dean Evans has the details right here - and if you can't afford or don't want either, remember that you'll be able to give your iPhone or iPad a whole new lease of life on the September 18 when iOS 7 finally ships.

This week we also saw a bunch of new PCs and ultra-portables unveiled at the IDF conference, and Intel showed off its latest, greatest Atom processors, also known as Bay Trail. And remember Yahoo? It might not have regained its crown as Queen of All Internets, but it's got a new logo and its user numbers are up 20% since July 2012. CEO Marissa Mayer is in it for the long haul: she reckons it'll take three or more years to get to "a positive place." Let's give Yahoo a yahoo.

The week's best buys

Despite the arrival of some intense competition, Panasonic has risen to the challenge with this new high-end plasma TV, delivering what for our money are the most cinematic 50-inch pictures we've seen. It's nothing short of a masterpiece.

The Google Nexus 7 is a remarkably solid device all round: the specs and screen are both good, it's got a premium build quality and a very low price tag. If you're on a budget this is the tablet to buy and, even if you're not, it's well worth considering.

Image quality from the Nikon V1 is good and noise is nicely controlled, especially if you have time to process the raw files individually. The sensor is small enough to allow a small camera body, but large enough to enable control over depth of field.

Do you think the new iPhones needed NFC?
@ValerioVeo Yeah - is there any reason why I should upgrade from my 4S? Thinking HTC One is the way to go now.
@ImTyUK Don't know a soul who's ever used NFC so no, presumably.
@DavidTKeith They SHOULD have it in there. Opens up fun and useful new features. Going their own way as usual though.
