Fortnite Android performance issues addressed by Epic

Fortnite Android performance issues addressed by Epic

Fortnite's Android launch has been a little bit messy thus far. First, we learned that the game wouldn't be available on the Google Play Store, then it was the beta's brief-but-still-kinda-weird exclusivity period on Samsung devices.

For quite some time now, rumors have been claiming that Apple will launch three iPhones later this year.

Fortnite on Android a dangerous slippery slope

Fortnite on Android a dangerous slippery slope

It started innocently enough. Android users are no stranger to iOS getting first dibs on apps and games, as long as they eventually get their share. At first, it seemed that was what Epic Games was doing for Fortnite Mobile on Android. Instead, it turned into a rather complicated situation involving revenue sharing and security.

Because come October, Chromebooks might be declared dead or at least on their way to becoming pointless. And that will be thanks to an admittedly appealing feature that will be introduced by none other than Google itself.

Chromebook “cheza” to have large 3:2 detachable screen

Once largely panned for being glorified browsers in netbook clothing, Chromebooks are becoming one of the most interesting devices in the computing market today. On the software front, you have Android and Linux apps and, just maybe, even Windows 10 dual booting. On the hardware side, you’re getting new form factors that are threatening to make Android tablets obsolete.
