First Galaxy Note 6 detail spilled by Samsung

In what must be the smallest detail leak in the history of Samsung that remains significant to super-fans, the Galaxy Note 6 has been named. Named on Samsung's Agent (AA) Profile page, that is. In comes SM-N930F, the "F" version of what's certainly the next smartphone in the Note series. It goes like this: Galaxy Note 4 is SM-N910, Note 5 is SM-N920, and we can safely assume that the Note 6 (or Note 7, as it may be called), is SM-N930.

And today it has announced the next batch of Remix OS powered devices, including a much-awaited next gen Remix Pro 2-in-1 Android tablet.

NVIDIA has traditionally been seen as a "good citizen" when it comes to the speed and frequency of rolling out Android updates and this latest one cements that image.

The update is short but substantial, giving users the ability to split navigation buttons and adding support for hi-res audio.

T-Mobile LG G Pad X 8.0 is the G Pad III in disguise

T-Mobile LG G Pad X 8.0 is the G Pad III in disguise

Earlier this week, LG revealed its latest Android tablet, the mid-range G Pad III 8.0. Given how few Android tablets come from major OEMs these days, it is perhaps still good news, no matter how not premium it is. It does have a few things going for it, enough it seems for T-Mobile to sign up for it. Except it is going by a different name in the US. The carrier has just added an LG G Pad X 8.0 to its roster, which, aside from the name and perhaps LTE bands, is pretty much the same G Pad III 8.0.

iOS 9.3.2 update for 9.7-inch iPad Pro has returned

After pulling out the update from its servers nearly two weeks ago, Apple has retried the update process again, this time with more positive results.
