How to download the Android N update

How to download the Android N update

This week a bit of a slip of the publish button seems to have revealed a whole lot of details about the next version of Google's Android. The dessert known as Android N, more than likely Android Nerds, or Nougat, will be launching this week as a developer preview on multiple devices. If a leak (now pulled) from Ars Technica is to be believed, this will include the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Pixel C, Nexus 9 (tablet), and a single Android One phone by the name of General Mobile 4G. Strangely enough, this is not the first time this has happened.

Dell’s new Latitude laptops tout security and beauty in one

Dell’s new Latitude laptops tout security and beauty in one

Some say life is just a series of compromises. That might not always be true, but when it comes to devices and computers, it probably is. Power, security, or beauty. Most of the time you can only choose two. Dell is saying you don't have to, and its putting out three new Latitude devices to prove it. With the Latitude 13 7000 laptop, the Latitude 12 7000 and Latitude 11 5000 2-in-1 tablets, Dell offers buyers portable computers that carry the power of an Intel Skylake processor, the security features of Dell, and the elegance of a sleek XPS laptop.

Amazon Fire tablet encryption to return as retailer backtracks

Amazon Fire tablet encryption to return as retailer backtracks

Amazon has backtracked on Fire tablet encryption, having triggered an outpouring of criticism after removing support in the latest Fire OS 5 release. The retail giant blamed minimal customer interest for the decision, which saw Android's data encryption option stripped from the Fire tablet platform, though communications with Amazon's own servers were still secured.

iPad Pro Review for artists, illustrators, and designers

iPad Pro Review for artists, illustrators, and designers

I don't use most of the advertised features of the iPad Pro. I haven't activated the split-screen multitasking feature more than a couple of times - just to see how it worked. I haven't used Siri. The iPad Pro for me hasn't been about engaging with all the bells and whistles it seemed I was meant to be excited about back when it was first revealed by Apple in September. Instead, I've been using the iPad Pro for sketching ideas and illustrating pictures, and because of this, I find myself enjoying the platform as a tool for the first time in a long time.

9.7-inch iPad Pro tipped to inherit iPhone 6s camera

The next Apple event has been tipped to contain more than one device, the larger of these being a new iPad Pro. Not an iPad Pro that'll replace its even larger relative, the original 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but one that'll offer another size in the increasingly powerful iPad market. This iPad Pro (the smaller) has been rumored to roll with a 12-megapixel rear camera, coming with a sensor that's rather similar to that of the iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus.

Alcatel Xess “tablet” to run multitasking Android flavor Phoenix OS

Alcatel Xess “tablet” to run multitasking Android flavor Phoenix OS

Google designed the Pixel C hardware for productivity, but the Android software running on it didn't seem to get the memo. Excellent for smartphones, tablets, and even TVs, "vanilla" Android has not scaled well to PC-like use cases. Companies like Jide, not to mention some crowdfunded projects, have dared to go where Google still refuses to venture. One such attempt is Phoenix OS, which, like Remix OS, spins Android into a more traditional desktop form. Now, it seems that Phoenix has gained a major backer, with Alcatel showing off the OS running on its equally odd Xess "tablet".

Android N “Nerds” features: starting with menus

Android N “Nerds” features: starting with menus

Google's next version of Android has been spotted - sort of - in a developer preview for a simple function. This simple function allows developers to switch the operating system's "Dark" and "Light" themes on or off - or dark to light, however you want to say it - and contains a clue. This clue is the hamburger menu button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. This button will allow the everyday user to open a drawer to the left of the screen, switching between sections in Settings menus with swiftness.

Panasonic’s new Toughpad FZ tablets are practically phones

Panasonic’s new Toughpad FZ tablets are practically phones

Those familiar with Panasonic's mobile devices might be aware of the existence of its Toughpad line of rugged tablets. Strangely enough, not all of those tablets are actually tablets, at least as far as size and functionality are concerned. Take for example the new Toughpad FZ-F1 and FZ-N1. These two "tablets", running Windows 10 Mobile and Android 5.1.1, respectively, actually come in 4.7-inch sizes, some even with voice capabilities. In short, these tablets are pretty much tough and rugged smartphones built for industrial use cases.

How Lenovo and Project Tango will reinvent your smartphone

How Lenovo and Project Tango will reinvent your smartphone

Lenovo and Google couldn't have picked a more impressive venue to demonstrate the latest iteration of Project Tango at MWC 2016 nor, indeed, one more suited to its indoor mapping capability. The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya isn't short on fine art, and like most museums you could easily imagine getting lost in its various rooms and corridors.
