Pixel 2 Kinda Blue now on Google Store, Project Fi

CES week might not always be the best time to announce new smartphones which could quickly be swept away in the flood of other electronics. It is, on the other hand, the perfect time to do things that would be OK, maybe even preferable, to go under the radar. That might be the case with the Pixel 2 this week. No, there isn’t a new bug or problem to add to the still long list. It’s all good this time, now that the Kinda Blue Pixel 2 is available for all to buy.

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Lenovo Mirage Solo with Daydream hands-on: VR and the camera to shoot it

Right now there are two main types of virtual reality headsets, ones that are tethered to PCs and ones that need a smartphone to work. Either way, such headsets are beholden to another device running the show, which also prevents users from accessing said devices normally. Standalone VR headsets have long been a dream but, as far as Google’s Daydream platform is concerned, that almost failed to take shape. Lenovo has, fortunately, come to the rescue with the new Mirage Solo with Daydream standalone headset that promises freedom in more ways than one.

Google Pay assimilates Android Pay, Google Wallet into a single platform

Google isn’t exactly known for always having a coherent product message and lineup. Just take a look at its current mess of messaging apps and services, not to mention those that it already retired. To a lesser extent, that is the same situation with its mobile payment systems, previously comprised of Android Pay, Google Wallet, and, if you’re in India, Tez. “Previously”, because Google is now combining two of those, namely Android Pay and Google Wallet, into a single “Google Pay” brand to reduce, or increase, confusion.

Google Assistant displays, Android Auto, speakers headline CES 2018

CES isn’t usually Google’s time to grab the spotlight but this year, it’s making its presence felt in a rather new way. No, there’s no new Google product or device being announced. Instead, there are dozens of new ones. Confused? You probably will be once you take a load of all the new speakers, headphones, smart displays, and in-car audio systems debuting at CES 2018.

Huawei’s AT&T deal reportedly just imploded

This morning AT&T reportedly "walked away" from a deal with Huawei, a deal that might well have made Huawei a major smartphone force in the USA. Huawei is one of the biggest smartphone brands in China and indeed the world, coming in just behind names like Samsung and Apple. Huawei was apparently supposed to announce their deal at CES 2018 as early as tomorrow (Tuesday, the 9th of January, 2018.)
