Google launches Nexus 5
The new Google handset is made by LG and has been designed to show off the capabilties of the new Android operating system, KitKat.
The device is smaller, lighter and thinner than the Nexus 4 but has a bigger touchscreen at 5in.
KitKat has been designed to work well on all types of smartphones, and the software follows in the steps of the latest iOS update, as it is more colourful and flatter.
The handset starts at £299, which is more affordable than other Android smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.
The Nexus 5 features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front for video calls. It also has wireless charging, Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0.
Mobile devices to be allowed on US flights

US airlines will let passengers use their smartphones, tablets and e-book readers throughout their entire flight by the end of the year.
However, internet connection for email, accessing the internet and downloading will be prohibited below 10,000 feet.

US airline Delta has said that it has submitted a plan to the regulator and expects to let customers on domestic flights use mobile devices as early as November 1st.
Singapore newspaper's website hacked by 'Anonymous'
The Straits Times, Singapore's main newspaper, has had its website hacked by someone claiming to be part of the hacking group Anonymous.
This has come days after a person claiming to be part of Anonymous posted a video online, threatening to hit out at the country's infrastructure. The video protested Singapore's new licensing regulations for newspaper websites.
The hacker left a comment on the website that said: "Dear ST: You just got hacked for misleading the people!"
The firm that runs the Straits Times, the Singapore Press Holdings, has since made a police report and had the affected blog taken down from the website.
