Jide Remix 2-in-1 Tablet seeks hardware testing helpers

One of the Android devices that was first seen during CES 2015 was a tablet from Jide called the Remix 2-in-1. This tablet has the look of a Windows PC and runs a special version of Android called Remix OS. That OS brings the tablet user a taskbar and the ability to run apps in windows that can be resized on the fly. Like I said, it sounds and looks a lot like a Windows tablet.

Modern Combat 5 Spring update gives the gift of Free

Gameloft has a pretty big update for Modern Combat 5 fans and calling it a game changer would be quite the understatement. This massive update doesn't just bring new content that you may eventually forget about, it actually adds a new Soldier class, one that is actually less oriented towards combat. It also adds support for common controllers. But more than that, you're probably more interested to hear that the Gameloft is making Modern Combat 5 absolutely free to play. Of course, it's not getting rid of the IAPs.

T-Mobile introduces Carrier Freedom, Uncontract

T-Mobile is really out to court the masses with offers that might seem ridiculous in light of the continued issues people have with carriers.

Nexus 5 gets Android 5.1 OTA, might devour your RAM

Google has finally let out the OTA update that will bring the Nexus 5 to Android 5.1 land. This follows the release of factory images and binaries for several of the supported Nexus devices. However, if you are quite excited to get the latest and supposedly greatest Android version, you might want to exercise caution, as some users are reporting a rather dreadful bug in this release that causes Android to eat up RAM like crazy, even if you have more than 1 GB of it.

Changes in Facebook to affect FB tile in Flipboard

Facebook recently implemented massive (well, not really, but it's big) changes when it comes to what you can and can't see on your news feed and what you can or cannot post. While these new rules are mostly beneficial (you can't post or see anything with explicit sexual content, violence, self-harm, etc), some apps have apparently been affected for some reason. One of these is Flipboard, who has informed its users of what this means for your Facebook tile on the popular digital magazine app.

LG AKA now available outside of South Korea

A few months back, we told you about this weird and quirky smartphone line being released by LG, but only in its native South Korea. It looks like this unique device, called the LG AKA, became a big hit not just with consumers but even with award-giving bodies, winning an IF Design Award for its "unconventional approach to smartphone design". Now it's being released in other countries, specifically Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, and Turkey, and maybe even more markets in the pipeline.
