Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is designed for multimedia

Of the new Android tablets that Lenovo is unveiling today, the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro definitely takes the cake. While the new Yoga Tablet 2 represents an incremental upgrade to Lenovo's 2013 line, this Pro version makes a huge leap forward. With a pico projector hidden in the hinge, a JBL subwoofer on the back, and a large Quad HD display, this tablet is unambiguously built for the ultimate multimedia experience. Plus, it was designed in collaboration with Lenovo product engineer Ashton Kutcher to boot.

Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 expands choices, sizes, and angles

Lenovo has a slew of product announcements today, all around its bendable Yoga line. Two (or three, depending on how you count it) of these, happily, are powered by our favorite omnipresent and multi-functional Android OS. But the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 line isn't simply just an upgrade from last year's keyboardless hinged tablet. This second iteration ventures out into new options for users, from the way they handle the tablet, to the size of the tablet itself, and even, if they want, the operating system.

Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 4: Quick Settings, new wallpaper

Due to some technical difficulties, Paranoid Android had to delay the fourth beta of their 4.6 release series. Fret not PA fans, as that update is now upon us. For a slight change, this release doesn't focus on the Dynamic Status Bars, lovingly called DSB. Instead, it gives a bit of polish to the Quick Settings tiles feature. And as a bonus, Paranoid Android is introducing a new default wallpaper, one that has the project's AOSPA moniker clearly emblazoned for everyone to see and enjoy.

Todoist Karma’s fated mobile launch turns jobs into games

Todoist's fast-paced development is quite interesting to observe and definitely a pleasure to experience first-hand. From integrating with popular calendar app Sunrise, to adding attachments from Google Drive or Dropbox, to pinning down location-based reminders, Todoist is quickly becoming a top-rated todo app, available on as much as 13 platforms. Now it is adding a new feature, at least for its mobile users, bringing Todoist Karma's gamification to Android as well as iOS and Amazon Fire OS.

HTC’s Double Exposure event now up on YouTube

HTC just recent concluded their awaited media event and, while its new products didn't exactly take the mobile tech world by storm, it still managed to earn a few accolades and praises from tech pundits. And perhaps a few raised eyebrows from the fashion world as well. HTC is entering into a whole new world with its RE camera, the Desire EYE selfiest smartphone, and EYE imaging experience. And now you can watch the whole hour-long show on YouTube at your convenience.

Verizon DROID Turbo gets detailed in leaked manual

We've heard and seen leaks about Motorola's new DROID device heading for Verizon and so far it has painted a rather surprising picture of a smartphone that could very well have been Motorola's flagship. Now a leaked manual supposedly for the Verizon DROID Turbo has popped up that seemingly confirms that more than premium image of the device. But despite being a carrier-exclusive (at least as far as we know), it seems that the DROID Turbo still offers that same "vanilla" Android experience as the Moto X.

Doggins pits a time-traveling canine against a devious squirrel

They say that the Internet is like ancient Egypt, with people writing on walls and worshipping cats. There are, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your proclivities, no cats in this game. Rather, this simple-looking but aesthetically beautiful game is all about a dog. Well, a dog and human history. Or actually a dog, human history, and the maniacal plot of a dastardly monocled squirrel to change the story of human invention. And of course, there will be time traveling involved. No phone booths though.

HTC RE camera re-imagines the mobile camera experience

HTC is indeed trying to venture out into new markets and, as expected, digital imaging is just one if its first stops. With the announcement of a slew of new products, including version 1.0 of the Zoe collaborative video editing app, a new EYE imaging experience, and the HTC Desire EYE, HTC is showing that it means serious imaging business. But perhaps nowhere does it look more serious yet at the same time somewhat "amusing", to put it nicely, than with the RE, what it bills as a "remarkable" little camera.

HTC Desire EYE has your selfie needs covered on both sides

It appears that the leaks were quite spot on. HTC does indeed have a double-sided camera phone for digital photographers and selfie addicts alike. As part of its brand new imaging thrust, which led to the new HTC RE camera as well, the HTC Desire EYE offers a new kind of mobile photography experience, by making the front-facing camera a first class citizen and on the exact same level as the back one. Perhaps it also helps that the HTC Desire EYE is strangely quite on par with the HTC's One M8 flagship in terms of hardware.

CyanogenMod 11 M11 is out with another round of polishes

No, you're not seeing double. This is indeed CM11 M11, or to be more verbose, the 11th milestone release for CyanogenMod version 11. This release is sort of less spectacular than previous ones and probably rightly so. It hints that most of the development is now focused more on fine tuning than introducing big, invasive, and potentially disruptive features. It could also be the calm before the storm when Android L is released and all development hell breaks loose.
