LG Optimus G2 takes shape: Snapdragon 800, edge-to-edge display, August 7th

If you hadn't already guessed that the August 7th New York City event being held by LG would be home to their next-generation hero, follow-up to the LG Optimus G from last year, you may as well give in this weekend. Today a set of three (count them - three!) screenshots have leaked with 1080p resolution about them and an aim for LG's soon-to-be-official handset. These images go on to solidify a collection of rumors we'd heard previous to this weekend and suggest some new abilities for the hero as well.

Google Profits sag at Motorola losses

Google Profits sag at Motorola losses

While the final outcome for Google is another massively successful quarter with $3.35 billion net income, Motorola has once again turned up as a sore spot. Motorola's losses this quarter totaled a staggering $271 million, this comparing to a losses one year ago this same period set at $86 million. While it would, given just those results, appear that Motorola is a whole lot worse off with Google at the helm, the quarter immediately preceding the one just reported sits right up at the top with $353 million lost.

CES 2013 wrap-up: Accessories steal the show

CES 2013 wrap-up: Accessories steal the show

In some ways, one could argue that CES 2013 was really all about the accessories. Sure, a lot of companies where there unveiling new hardware, whether that hardware was a massive TV, a new gaming tablet, or a phone that has an eInk display on the backside, but there were more accessories than we care to count being shown on the floor. Each of these accessories seemed to offer something unique; each was newsworthy in it's own particular way. There were some that caught more attention than others, naturally, but nearly every accessory we saw is bound to get someone, somewhere excited.

Android Hardware Rundown: 2012

Android Hardware Rundown: 2012

2012 was quite a huge year for Android. We saw the jump from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and then to version 4.2. Ice Cream Sandwich was a solid operating system, but Jelly Bean made it even better, adding new features like Google Now, better notifications, and even Photo Sphere. However, the software was merely just a vehicle for the hardware to ride on -- the devices themselves were what really shined this year.

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

We've been seeing a lot of really good high-end handsets lately (like the Galaxy Note II and the HTC DROID DNA), but all the while, LG has been putting out some solid mid-range phones. Not too long ago, we reviewed the LG Optimus L9, a mid-range device at T-Mobile that wasn't extraordinary in any way but still a quality handset all around, and today it's the Verizon Spectrum 2 that's taking center stage. The question is whether or not this smartphone is yet another good mid-range entry from LG, or if it falls short when held up against the dozens of other mid-range handsets ready to be taken home.

A Google plan to kill carriers with WiFi is all too believable

A Google plan to kill carriers with WiFi is all too believable

Could you live your mobile life on WiFi? Attempts to ween users off of expensive, subsidized smartphone deals have been more successful this year than every before; word earlier today that Google had acquired a WiFi hotspot company - and which later turned out to be false - was believable in part because the search company is a prime candidate for ousting cellular from the mobile equation. The ICOA deal may be fake, but Google's appetite to ditch the traditional carriers and strike out more or less alone isn't new.

Avengers Initiative Tegra Enhanced Review

Though the Marvel Comics game by the name of Avengers Initiative is indeed available for an elite collection of high-powered Android devices, it's the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor that's breaking out the best of the best. The review you're about to set your eyes on is done on none other than the ASUS Transformer Prime, the first device to sport the Tegra 3 - but chances are you'll be breaking it out on the super-popular Google Nexus 7 tablet: and lucky you - that device works with a Tegra 3 as well.
