Kabam, Marvel team up again for upcoming free-to-play RPG

Even while the fruits of their first collaboration have yet to bear fruit, hopefully this week if not later this month, it seems that Kabam and Marvel have grown rather fond of each other. The two will take another stab at the growing mobile gaming market and have announced a still unnamed game. This time, however, the genre will be shifting gears towards a role-playing type. It's hard not to get excited but also hard not to be a bit cautious.

Android 5.0.1 code pushed to AOSP, coming to Nexus soon [UPDATE]

When it comes to Android Lollipop rollouts, majority of Nexus devices should have already had the dessert by now, though there might still be a few nooks and crannies where the latest version has yet to arrive. That said, there might already be a new update soon, coming to Nexus devices first of course. The Android Open Source Project has just seen a push to its code repository for build number LXR22C, which is set to become android-5.0.1-r1.

Android Community Weekly Digest: Nov. 30, 2014

The weekend was mostly likely a frantic one, with all the food, the shopping, and, of course, some much needed family down time. But it ain't over yet! Cyber Monday fast approaches and you are most likely trying to recover some energy, and maybe some money as well, in preparation for that, so we'll make this as quick and as painless as possible. Presenting Android Community's Weekly Digest covering November 24 to November 30, 2014, a.k.a. The Thanksgiving Edition. Android Community Deals We are launching a new venture with StackSocial to bring the sweetest deals on gadgets, accessories, and toys to match your digital lifestyle, and we've started off with 10, yes TEN, deals for Black Friday. But don't worry if you missed that chance, as there will be a lot more to come. Head on over to the DEALS section of Android Community (or click this link) to see what's up for grabs. We will be highlighting some of the more interesting ones each week, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for them. Android Community Deals is brought to you in cooperation with StackSocial.

Black Friday Frenzy, Cyber Monday Madness By now everyone, even those outside the US, knows how crazy shops get during this season and naturally, there were many, many promos and deals to be had. But fret not if Friday passed with nary an item in your shopping cart, because there are still a few bits and pieces left when Monday dawns. Motorola will be kicking off its 2nd gen Moto X discount, Amazon still has the Fire Phone at $199 and is still selling the Chromecast at a reduced $23. A lot of other deals are still in effect until Monday, so better not stow away those cards yet for one last holiday hurrah. India: the market's new darling After getting a foothold in China, It seems that the industry is slowly shifting its eyes towards India. Google fired the opening salvo by launching Android One on three local manufacturers. But instead of taking the market by storm, it seems that the new breed of smartphones is meeting some cold reception, thanks in no small part to Google overlooking the local smartphone business culture. Other smaller players are also trying to take a stab at the market. Xiaomi's Redmi Note makes its debut in India, with Fleksy bundled inside. OnePlus has just announced its still invite-only India launch in partnership with Amazon India. But surprisingly, Cyanogen, Inc., the very same people who make the CyanogenMod 11S OS on the OnePlus One, revealed an exclusive deal with India's Micromax, much to the confusion and dismay of the Chinese startup. We are likely to see more of this drama unfold in the coming days. Moto 360 and its new look Not exactly a holiday discount, but Motorola has finally made available the silver and gold metal straps for the round smartwatch, giving it an even classier facade. In addition to that, it has also made available for purchase both the Horween leather and the metal straps so that owners of the Moto 360 can now mix and match as they please, without having to spend on another unit.

Germany’s Linshof i8 boasts 80 GB of storage

We've seen our fair share of strange smartphones and devices, and this Linshof i8 could very well make it to that list. The German-made smartphone promises to deliver a lot of things but in a rather peculiar package. Aside from the strange shape, which doesn't seem to be hand-friendly, the smartphone also comes with 80 GB of storage. Not 64, not 128, but 80 GB.

OUYA reaches 1,000 games milestone

It seemed almost like an impossible dream, but they've definitely done it. OUYA has just marked its 1,000th game, reaching that number that any non-mainstream gaming platform can only dream of.

MarkO wants to be your productivity buddy

There was a time when our todo lists were at the very least just a checklist or, at most, timed reminders of things we need to do. These days, however, a single task may have not just multiple contexts but also multiple people involved. For those types of tasks, MarkO, pronounced as "mark-oh", tries to be of service by reminding you not just when a task needs to be done but also when you actually are in the location where it needs to be done.
