For some unknown reason or puprose, HP is reviving the use of the Compaq brand for some new devices. However, don't expect to see these soon as these low-end tablets are heading for the Chinese market.
The Nexus 5, which was just announced today, sports a number of high-end features, including built-in wireless charging support. But what use would that be without a wireless charging station? Aspiring Nexus 5 owners need not worry as Google has you covered with a brand new wireless charging station that will soon be available for purchase.
The past quarter has seen a flurry of new smartphone announcements that has surely made buyers quite undecided on which device to buy. If one wants to make a decision based purely on raw performance, then AnTuTu's top 10 list might help make that just a tad easier.
Google is not one to simply rest on its laurels now that it has just announced both Android 4.4 KitKat and Nexus 5. The company has just put up the factory image and binary drivers for its newest smartphone, which should give tinkerers and modders something to play with while waiting for their devices to arrive.
There has been talk lately within the display manufacturing industry that some tablet makers are looking towards putting out devices with 12-inch or larger screens in order to differentiate themselves from an over-saturated 7- and 10-inch tablet market. It seems that there is some credence to that rumor and Samsung might be the first to the scene.
After an excruciatingly long series of rumors and leaks, the day has finally come and the Nexus 5 has officially landed. But while the smartphone touts specs that, by now, sound a wee bit common among high-end Android smartphones, one piece of its hardware, its camera, deserves a special mention.
After all the leaks, pictures, bluffs and fibs, Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5 are official. Released via the Google blog, the Android scene quickly ramped into an all-out frenzy over the newest flagship device and Android iteration from Google. With so much to take in, let’s recap the days events as they relate to all things Google.
Standing in almost pointed difference from the debacle last year, the Play Store has handled the crush of Nexus 5 orders remarkably well. Thought the device sold out in about 30 minutes, some orders have started going out already! That’s right, orders which we’re placed mere hours ago have begun leaving the Play Store warehouse, bound for destinations unknown (to us).
Via their update page, Motorola seems to be committing to Android 4.4 on a large scale. If the site is correct, not only will the flagship Moto X see an update to KiKat, but so will the DROID lineup. There are also a few older devices which should see a bump, though we’re not so sure about that.
HTC has a spotty record of device support. In one instance they promise updates, and the next they withdraw support. That seems to have changed with the One, and we hope the news coming form HTC today is more proof of that.
