With Android “L” release — which still doesn’t have a name — notifications are getting a pretty neat upgrade. We’ll now get a richer experience when using our phones with what Google calls “Enhanced Notifications”. I additions to advanced notifications, we’ll get a nice new method for unlocking our phones.
We’re here at Google I/O, ready and waiting for the keynote to begin! After recently learning we’d see a new version of Android introduced today, we’re excited to see just what the new release will bring us. There are also a few other Android twists and turns we’re expecting, but will we get all that we’re hoping for?
Samsung is introducing a new smartphone, and it a form factor that will probably be pretty familiar to Android fans. The South Korean company is making a Galaxy S5 Sport handset, which follows up on the recently released Active. It’s a familiar look for fans of the previous Active iterations from Samsung, but is it necessary?
Latest in their lineup of flagship Android handsets, the LG G3 is one beast of a handset. Packing a big screen into a surprisingly small frame, there are two attractions that everyone keeps chatting about: that screen and the battery life.

You want to travel, but you don’t want to take a bunch of wall chargers and battery packs with you. do you need a battery pack, or a charger? How long will you be gone? Those questions have now become moot, as TYLT introduces their new Energi 2K Smart Travel Charger.
Now that the Fire Phone event is all wrapped up, what have we learned? We're getting a phone with a different look, but not a true 3D effect. Prime is involved, even moreso than the Kindle Fire tablets. If you’re looking for a one-stop destination for all your Fire Phone info, we’ve got you covered.
Want to buy an Amazon Fire Phone? You can! Pre-orders are up at Amazon’s website. If you though Amazon would price their phone competitively, thogh, think again. The device lists in the average smartphone range; right around $700.
So, a 3D phone — that’s not exactly what we got from the Fire Phone, but we did get a new perspective on displays. By tilting and maneuvering the Fire Phone, we get an entirely new look, and perhaps even details we’re not catching on the screen.
Firefly was rolled out today, and Amazon is banking on it to tie you into their ecosystem even more than you are already. Firefly is simple enough, but also worth discussion. Just what is Firefly, and why should you care? We give a quick rundown of what Firefly is, and what it’s about.
