DROID Turbo gets leaked again, retail version this time

At this point only the official announcement from Verizon will put an end to the seemingly unending flow of leaks about the DROID Turbo.

Dell Venue 8 7000 set to ship in the US end of November

Dell will soon be bringing its most premium and yet, at the same time, oddest Android tablet to the US market just in time for the holidays. While the Dell Venue 8 7000 is already quite impressive from the specs alone, flaunting high-end gear all crammed inside an extremely thin profile, the tablet's real selling point would be its rear cameras. Yes, you read that right. The Dell Venue 8 7000 has not one, not even two, but three back-facing cameras to give you, or the tablet rather, a better sense of depth.

Kindle Fire HDX 7 lands on AT&T to help Fire Phone sales

You may have heard that Amazon is entering a trying financial period, and that its first ever smartphone isn't helping its cause.

It’s really official: “Microsoft Lumia” is the name

Nokia Lumia is no more. Of course, that was already made known by Microsoft's French Facebook account, but you know how social networks can be so fickle-minded these days.

Xiaomi global expansion: moving data centers out of China

Xiaomi is growing out of its shell. It has already started making some of its devices, unfortunately not always the latest ones, available in other countries, hoping to replicate the same wild success it enjoys in China. But in order to scale better to an international audience, especially as far as its services are concerned, the company is now also relocating some of its data away from Beijing and into other territories, some of them in the US. But is that really the only reason for this move?

Glow in the dark highway lines finally complete

Glow in the dark highway lines finally complete

The Netherlands has one more thing to be proud of, being one of the very few, if not the very first, to boast of something called a "Smart Highway". No, this has nothing to do with mobile devices or wireless technology. It's about being smart about road safety and being smart about energy consumption, especially at night. How? By designing highways, or to be more precise, paint, that will soak in solar energy during the day and then paint the night, or the road, green at night.

DROID Turbo blurry shots confirm topnotch specs

In less than a week, we will finally be able to see for ourselves what the Verizon and Motorola have been busy with, though at this point there is almost no stone left unturned for the DROID Turbo to hide in. That said, a couple of real, non-render, but quite blurry photos of what is allegedly the actual device definitely doesn't hurt.
