Project Ara delayed to 2016, looking for US launch site

Project Ara delayed to 2016, looking for US launch site

It seems that the dream has officially been delayed. The Project Ara team has officially confirmed what was already foreshadowed in yesterday's tweets. The modular smartphone won't be coming this year. Instead, it will have a 2016 launch which still has no new timeline. And instead of doing it outside of the country, the first Project Ara smartphone might be launched somewhere in mainland US instead. Naturally, despite its best efforts to assuage fears, the delays would inevitably worry not just fans but also existing and potential hardware partners.

Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ T-Mobile release bumped up to tomorrow

Apparently T-Mobile USA customers weren't super thrilled when they heard the news about preorders earlier today. Verizon customers are getting their Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ devices before T-Mobile customers, and they were jumping mad about it. As such, CEO John Legere decided to push up the launch of their own models of the device, making them available for general sale starting tomorrow. This means the device will be online only starting at 6AM PT through T-Mobile USA.

Android Marshmallow revealed with new statue

Android Marshmallow revealed with new statue

Today Google will unveil the statue - and with it the name - of the newest version of Android. This fact has been teased by Google employee Jeff Sharkey then revealed by Google employee Dave Burke - and it's a strange one. Google has opted to have an original Android holding the marshmallow rather than turning the statue into an Android-ified marshmallow with white head and all. This can only mean one thing - the next version is going to be Nuts.

Google Project Sunroof takes guesswork out of solar switch

Google Project Sunroof takes guesswork out of solar switch

Google is hoping to encourage more homeowners to fit rooftop solar panels, launching Project Sunroof to do the math on just how much could be saved. The system relies on the same aerial imagery that Google already delivers in Google Earth, figuring out rooftop area and then taking into account factors like what angle the sunlight will hit it, whether it's in the shade of nearby buildings or trees, and even what the weather might be like in your area.

With the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 out of the way, there is now more room for other upcoming devices to grab the spotlight. Like the upcoming Nexus smartphone, or smartphones, whether they be from LG or from Huawei. This latest leaked image is allegedly LG's third Nexus handset. And this time, it's no schematic or render but what is supposedly a real device, albeit only the back side of it.

Project Ara might have hit a snag, Puerto Rico launch ditched

Project Ara might have hit a snag, Puerto Rico launch ditched

It's probably too premature to sound the alarm, but Project Ara might be further delayed than it already is. Although more positively and warmly welcomed than Google Glass, Project Ara is also more ambitious and more experimental, which makes sudden shifts in plans not that surprising but still nerve-wracking. Without much explanation, Project Ara is practically saying that it will no longer have its pilot launch in Puerto Rico, maybe not even this year anymore. At the same time, the team reassures the public that it won't be going the way of Google Glass.

Apple patents iPhone Edge style side-display

Apple patents iPhone Edge style side-display

While no Apple patent necessarily guarantees a final product, today's for a curved display is particularly interesting - especially now that, as of this week, Samsung has launched three "Edge" devices. Apple's patent suggests that the company either had plans or has plans to create an iPhone with a display that shows information on a flat plane on the side of their device, with a display that curves (hidden) on the inside of the phone. How strange!

If this is the Moto 360 2, Motorola’s in trouble

If this is the Moto 360 2, Motorola’s in trouble

Earlier today Motorola revealed a new "okay Moto" video showing a version of the Moto 360 that'd they'd never before shown. This version of the device is a prototype, one we've seen one before - in a video from behind the scenes at Motorola's design studio for the Moto 360 and Moto Maker. Here we've got what's essentially the same Moto 360 as before, only the button on the right is now in the upper-right. We still see the "flat tire" of the non-circular display up front, as well as essentially the same functionality as the original.
