You don’t want a Samsung Gear VR

You don’t want a Samsung Gear VR

You might not want a Samsung Gear VR - not yet, anyway. The first Samsung Gear VR you're going to see on the market - as early as this afternoon - is the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition. This may look like a consumer release, but it's not. AT&T may be suggesting that it is, and Samsung may be suggesting that it is, the team at Oculus VR are making relatively clear that this is not meant to be the end-all, be-all release for the Gear VR. It's got Oculus branding on it, after all - they're not going to let anything out the gate suggesting it's final before they agree 100% that it is, truly, ready for everyone.

LG G Pen trademark leaks smart Note-taking future

Samsung does it, NVIDIA does it, and LG does it - they use stylus pens in their smart devices. Back with the LG G3 Stylus we saw a relatively run-of-the-mill stick embedded in the modified G3.

If Nintendo teamed with Google

If Nintendo teamed with Google

If Nintendo teamed with Google, great things would happen. Nintendo would go mobile - and it'd go mobile in style. If Nintendo teamed with Google today, they'd release their game archives as apps, all contained inside an original NES emulator, one that exists as the only place you're able to play these games outside the original NES or Wii. We can imagine this reality thanks to an artist named WoopWoopWoopWooop. He's from Reddit, and this is a mockup. It's not real, but we wish it was.

Darknet: the Gear VR game that makes you Mnemonic

The creator of the game Auralux has returned to the scene with another aesthetically gorgeous title, this one made for Samsung Gear VR specifically. This game goes by the name "Darknet", and it summons the classic age of "hacker" understanding - namely that time in history when movies depicted hacking as a visually rich, 3D-like experience. This experience stems from films like Hackers, Tron, and Lawnmower Man. You'll think you've entered the retro-future, and you'll have brought your VR self to fight the good fight.

LG rumored to discontinue G Pro line in favor of G series

LG rumored to discontinue G Pro line in favor of G series

Although LG's earning and performance didn't take a big hit, at least compared to its dearest rival Samsung, the Korean company is still girding up its loins and focusing its resources on its big winners. Unfortunately, that usually means letting go of some models, even if they be well-loved previously. In LG's case, it will be the "Pro" line that will be getting the axe, with LG reportedly not interested in a G Pro 3 next year as two of its premium lines start converging in terms of features.

Samsung Galaxy A7 passes by FCC with only 3G in tow

Samsung Galaxy A7 passes by FCC with only 3G in tow

It seems that the last member of the metal clad Galaxy Alpha family is slowly, very slowly, making its way to the US. Briefly sighted at the FCC is a filing for a certain SM-A700H, the model name betraying its identity as the Samsung Galaxy A7. Though not much can be gleaned from this sighting, which is typical of most FCC entries, one curious bit emerges. This particular model apparently only supports GSM and W-CDMA networks, with no mention of any 4G LTE support.
