Galaxy S6 details: turning Samsung’s mobile fortunes

Galaxy S6 details: turning Samsung’s mobile fortunes

If today's report on the sales of the Galaxy S5 are true, Samsung's next release will need to be a doozy. We previously had a chat on what Samsung was potentially getting into with the Galaxy S6 - how they may be working on a "Project Zero", a reboot of the entire series, a re-imagining of the smartphone monster they've created. Now with the Galaxy S5 said to have been selling 40% less than its predecessor, there's no better time for Samsung to bring the heat.

Comcast will soon show technician arrival times via app

Comcast will soon show technician arrival times via app

Comcast has announced a new service it likely hopes will win it some favor with often-disgruntled customers -- a mobile app that shows when, exactly, a service technician will be arriving. Users will be able to see this information through Comcast's MyAccount app, and though it will only be available near Boston initially, the service provider is looking to expand it to more customers next year. For now, the program is in an initial trial stage, and the service provider promises to update on what it finds during it.

Apple Watch doubted like iPhone: launch may be massive

Apple Watch doubted like iPhone: launch may be massive

Morgan Stanley isn't pulling any shots with their investor notes on the release of the Apple Watch in 2015. The industry view is cautious, they say, cautious just like they were before the launch of the iPhone in 2007. Cautious, they say, just like the industry was before the launch of the iPad in 2010. With the "wearables" industry ramping up a lot quicker than the smartphone or tablet industry ever did, Morgan Stanley says Apple will be able to sell an Apple Watch to 1 out of every 10 iPhone users.

Lollipop update for HTC One set for Friday

Lollipop update for HTC One set for Friday

This Friday, the 21st of November, 2014, we'll be seeing updates to both the HTC One (M8) and the HTC One (M7) for Android 5.0 Lollipop. This is a bit of a delay compared to the original projected release date - early this week - but still jams in amongst the first in the industry to release such an update. At this time we're not entirely certain what the HTC One update to Android 5.0 Lollipop will entail, exactly, as it'll be the first in the industry to have more than just the basic Google-made Vanilla layout.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

This week we've had a look at what it means to be rolling with the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with a full Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. This isn't your everyday average upgrade - it's not like we're using the Nexus 9 that just happens to be branded by NVIDIA. Instead, this is the first non-Nexus tablet to receive the update, complete with NVIDIA's own apps under the hood. This is more than just a software update just for the sake of having the latest and greatest - this is a real-deal update of the abilities of the unit.

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Despite what seems to be nothing but losses on the mobile front, Intel isn't ready to call it quits just yet, at least not formally. While some companies (HP and Sony come to mind) are divorcing their businesses in order to remain profitable in at least one area, Intel isn't about to let someone else take its mobile and tablet business elsewhere. Instead, it will be merging that loss-making unit into its division in charge of making chips for PCs, in the hopes that they will finally hit some sweet spot in the end.

Xperia Z4 details spill: Evolution, not Revolution

Xperia Z4 details spill: Evolution, not Revolution

Sony's next smartphone may well be the first to leak its parts this season as we prepare for the whole 2015 batch. What we're seeing here is said to be the Sony Xperia Z4, the next in a line of devices that look so extremely similar, you'd be forgiven for mistaking one for any one of the others. This device is tipped to be working with a front panel here so similar to its predecessor that it's even more difficult to tell them apart than the last two.

Nokia: What’s in the box?

Nokia: What’s in the box?

Tomorrow Nokia is set to have an event. They're going to reveal something that either is inside a box like you see here, or IS the box itself. If it IS the box, we're likely looking at something for the living room. Something like a smart TV box that'll take on the likes of Apple TV and Amazon's Fire TV. If it's just a box - very possible - then it's going to be something mobile. Think about Maps, think about Android, think about strange stuff you'd not have expected Nokia brand - not Microsoft - to attempt.

Beam app shows your texts being typed in real-time

Beam app shows your texts being typed in real-time

If you're no longer satisfied with only being able to see little ellipses as your chat partner types a message, the text messaging app Beam will likely strike your fancy. It leaves no room for edits -- at least, no room for private edits. Rather, everything you type is shown in real time to the person on the receiving end, for better or for worse, meaning you'd better think carefully about what you want to say before taking to the keyboard.
