FOVE headset hits Kickstarter for eye-tracking VR

FOVE headset hits Kickstarter for eye-tracking VR

You might not realize virtual reality has an owl problem, but it does. Turn your head while wearing most VR headsets, and the scene you see will move accordingly; flick just your eyes around, however, and nothing happens. Startup FOVE believes it has the answer, a VR rig that can track eye-movement and in the process not only make games and entertainment more immersive, but potentially allow them to be run from something as humble as a smartphone.

HTC confirms there will be no One Mini 3 [UPDATE: Not so fast!]

If you're attracted to HTC's new flagship smartphone, the One M9, but were holding out for a model featuring a slightly smaller screen, it's time to let go of that hope.

Tong made the comment at the Taiwan launch of the One M9+, adding that the smartphone market as a whole is moving away from smaller screen phones.

Windows 10 Mobile preview: Universal Store, Office, Xbox apps

Windows 10 Mobile preview: Universal Store, Office, Xbox apps

Microsoft has just announced the rollout of the latest build for Windows 10 Mobile (yes, that is its final, formal name) and it's probably one of the biggest previews yet. Debuting this release, with build number 10080, are a bunch of Universal apps that, in theory, will demonstrate the promise of Microsoft's spiel of apps that span all, or most, Windows 10 editions. Among this first batch of apps for phones, is finally something Windows Phone users have been clamoring for and rightly deserve: Universal Office apps.

No surprise: Qualcomm calls SD810 heat rumors “rubbish”

No surprise: Qualcomm calls SD810 heat rumors “rubbish”

After months of somewhat keeping silent, while letting its partners do the talking, Qualcomm is finally speaking out on the issues that have plagued what would have been its star chip for 2015, the Snapdragon 810. Naturally, it's calling the rumors of the chip overheating as hogwash and based on incomplete data. Of course, it's pointing the finger at "someone" who has been spreading this rumor to its advantage, without specifically mentioning the one company that stands to profit from the Snapdragon 810's failure: Samsung.

3rd gen Moto X specs leaks out

3rd gen Moto X specs leaks out

It's hard to believe that it has already been seven months since the 2014 Moto X was unveiled, which means there just 5 months left until the next generation. Unless Lenovo/Motorola decides on an August date just like the first Moto X. Naturally, we're beginning to hear of supposed insider info on what the 2015 Moto X will be like, which does sound a bit too good to be true at times. However, it could very well be a litmus test of whether Motorola can keep up with the fame it built back when it was still under Google's care.

HTC One M9 falls short, not enough to save HTC

HTC One M9 falls short, not enough to save HTC

HTC came under hard times but, for a while, it seemed that the Taiwanese manufacturer was on the verge of recovery, especially after the HTC One M8 and its new found fascination with mobile photography. Then came the HTC One M9 and now it seems that all hell has broken loose yet again. The company's financial report for April showed rather disappointing, in fact worrying, numbers, with an almost 40 percent decline in revenue from the same month last year. And most of it is being blamed on the One M9's poor market performance.

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

HoloLens hands-on: Building for Windows Holographic

Back in January, HoloLens was a Frankenstein’s monster of a headset. In fact, the eyepiece itself was only part of the test rig: the rest was conspicuously tethered to it with a physical cable hooked up to a Windows 10 PC. To say there’s been a dramatic shift in hardware in the ninety days or so since then is an understatement. Microsoft brought a fleet of HoloLens prototypes to BUILD 2015, each of them a standalone computer, eyepiece, sensor rig, and spatial sound system all integrated into a single headset, and offered me the opportunity to see what creating a Windows Holographic experience was like.

LG teases LG G4’s “DSLR level” camera

LG teases LG G4’s “DSLR level” camera

LG really loves teasing the public in bits and pieces about its upcoming G4 flagship bound for next week, but one thing it can't seem to get enough of is its camera. In fact, aside from the 5.5-inch QHD display and genuine leather rear, the smartphone's camera is one of LG's most teased feature. And to whet the appetite of mobile, and even maybe professional, photographers even more, it enlisted the help of professional photographer Colby Brown to explain why the G4 is his new camera and not just his new smartphone.

Verizon’s new LG Windows Phone leaked

Verizon’s new LG Windows Phone leaked

When you hear of Windows Phone, you usually immediately think of formerly Nokia now Microsoft Lumia devices.

A new Windows Phone from the Korean OEM has been spotted and it will be heading to Verizon at a yet unknown time.
