Google wants Developers to reach emerging markets, but how will they? There are sidestepped versions of Android like Nokia’s devices and platform, but those don’t make sense for many. At I/O, Google is announcing Android One, which is squarely focussed on those markets where a good device is needed, but not readily available.
Nexus fans, do not lose hope. While the future of a Nexus smartphone is still shrouded in uncertainty thanks to the rumors about the Android Silver program, there might still be one more Nexus device in queue. A new leak has sprung up pointing to an 8.9-inch Nexus tablet that will be made by new hands and called the HTC Volantis.
Recently, an LG executive commented on the state of their involvement with the Nexus program. Speaking to Dutch media, LG’s Director of Communications Ken Hong noted they weren’t involved with the next Nexus device “yet”. He went on to note that LG typically has something on the table and in the works by now, as they have with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.
As they’re wont to do, Google has posted an image that features a device we’ve not seen before. When we last saw them do this, it was an oddly manipulated image that appeared to be a larger Nexus tablet. This new image is revisiting those rumors, but there may be no way to wiggle their way out of this one.
Another hour, another iPhone 6 leak. This time, we find a device that looks a bit more finished, but keeps the same design cues as we’ve heard and seen before. Rolled edges give way to a very iPod looking device. While nothing major is seen, we find some subtle clues as to what may be coming from the next iDevice.
The folks at the wonderfully named Pwnie Express have launched their latest product, the Pwn Phone 2014, a penetration testing handset that'll run you $1,295 USD. This is an update to the original keyboard-toting Pwn Phone, and with it comes a variety of updated features.
Smartphones are a daily tool for many people, and nothing makes that reality quite as stark as crossing a border into international lands without a plan that supports such travel. For those visiting the US, Google's Nexus 5 is now being offered as a daily rental handset complete with unlimited service.
There’s nothing like a good April Fool’s joke to make you lose hope that something impossible could be possible. Today it’s inside Google’s new Maps Pokemon video, showing here a dual-screen Nexus device - or at least two Nexus 5 smartphones being held up one next to the other for some dual-screen Pokemon action.
During Mobile World Congress 2014 last month, Android boss Sundar Pichai said we'd not be seeing the next Nexus smartphone until the second half of this year, which surprised no one, and now according to word that has surfaced, LG will be making the handset -- as well as a Nexus smartwatch.
