Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5 appear in photos in Italy

This week someone all the way over in Italy appears to have gotten their hands on a Nexus 5 running no less than Android 4.4 KitKat. This build seems to be final or certainly near-final with a collection of features we've either only heard rumors of or have never seen before. Working with build KRS92B and Kernel 3.4.0, this Nexus 5 appears to be nearly ready for showtime - and not all that unlike the Moto X.

In what must be the strangest cross-branding we've seen in a smartphone in the past several years, the folks at ZTE have released the ZTE nubia 5 with the Houston Rockets - the NBA team. What we're doing this weekend is having a peek at the official limited-edition ZTE nubia 5 from all angles - with a full review in the near future, of course.

Android KitKat explored in early build: Key Lime Pie solidified

Android KitKat explored in early build: Key Lime Pie solidified

Though the likes of the next build for Android in version 4.4 KitKat will be appearing in full soon, today we're having a peek at an early build of what was once called Android 4.4 Key Lime Pie. It's become obvious over the past couple of weeks that Google had indeed been calling their next build of Android Key Lime Pie until they came into a deal with Nestle which, as you know, resulted in the name change and subsequent candy bar sales deal. Now we're having a peek at a build of Key Lime Pie from August, at a point in which it was quite likely showing up with a build much older than that still.

Samsung HomeSync Android TV box appearing this month, Jelly Bean in tow

Earlier this year at the international technology conference known as Mobile World Congress, we got our first chance to have a hands-on look at the Samsung HomeSync Android TV box. Tossing aside the idea that a Google-friendly TV box should run none other than Google TV itself, Samsung decided here that the system should take on the likes of their own Samsung Link system. Appearing October 6th, the Samsung HomeSync device will be working with the Samsung Galaxy S 4, Galaxy Note 3, and a collection of other recent Samsung smartphone and tablet releases.

LG G2 camera hands-on: OIS, back-facing shutter, 13MP up close

One of the key ingredients for success for LG with the LG G2's release this Autumn is in its backside - and not just because it's working with all of its physical buttons on its rear. Instead it's because LG has made a big effort to show off its current-generation camera technology, complete with optical image stabilization, a back-facing shutter button (that's the down-volume button, mind you), and a 13MP sensor. While we've already sent out a full LG G2 review as such, today we're having another peek at the camera on its own.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Review

With the 2nd edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, it's almost as if the company doesn't want to admit that they've got what's easily one of the finest Android tablets on the market. Buried in the announcements of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition barely made a blip in the tech news rounds over the past few weeks since its initial reveal. But fear not - it's not for lack of quality that Samsung doesn't push out the massive backing for this device: herein lies one of the most high-end Android tablets yet to hit the market since the dawn of said devices.
