Three big names in the mobile industry are working together to bring the PadFone X mini in the United States. Intel and AT&T are helping Asus to release the new smartphone this coming October 24 in AT&T retail stores and some national retailers.
As apps and smartphone features get more advanced but more complicated, not everyone appreciates the complexities that come with it. Some would like to have their phone display easily the things they actually need and to show them as big as they can. Phone launchers are a dime a dozen, but only very few can cater to needs like this. KoalaPhone sounds cute and fuzzy, but in fact it is big and loud, just the way some users prefer to have it.
For the hundreds (or maybe now thousands?) of owners of the Google Glass, the new update that will be unrolled this week has been a long time coming. Google announced that finally, notifications from the Android smartphone connected to the wearable will now be mirrored to your eyeballs, or rather, the Glass in front of your eyeballs.
Just hours before the official announcement for the Nexus 9 and Nexus 6 on October 15, it looks like AT&T will be selling the Motorola Nexus 6 smartphone with 2-year contract. The Nexus 6 will be the first Nexus device offered by AT&T directly.
Verizon's upcoming DROID smartphone is shaping up to be quite a beast and it seems it will just continue to build up until we get the final word at the end of the month. That said, almost everything that needs to be known about the DROID Turbo seems to have already been leaked out, leaving very few stones unturned. But if that weren't enough, this latest leak completes the circle, including press photos of what is allegedly the DROID Turbo itself.
If the latest rumor were true, then we might just be counting down the hours before Google's great Android reveal involving the Nexus 9 tablet and possibly the Nexus 6 smartphone and the name of the next Android version. Naturally, we are now getting a flood of hints that point out the possible answers to all those questions, including the possible name of Android L, which might be Lollipop after all. Whatever it's name is, Google has seemingly confirmed that it is indeed Android 5.0.
If the stars align tomorrow, we will finally get 1/3 of the Android puzzle filled in. An insider sources claims that Google has scheduled a formal announcement of what is now known as the Nexus 9 for October 15, which is just a few hours away. This, however, is just an appetizer as the tablet will only be available via pre-orders starting the 17th until its retail launch on November 3.
ASUS has released on its YouTube channel several new videos highlighting the advantages of having a 2-in-1 device with its Padfone S smartphone/tablet hybrid. The gadget line, which is one of a kind (so far) can be used as a smartphone which then converts into a tablet when docked, for the price of one device and one data plan as well. So this might be the device for those who want to have both but may have only budget for one.
At some point, I would wager that we have all played a board game of some sort. Board games often have little cardboard pieces that you punch out to use as avatars and enemies. A new game has hit Android called Card Dungeon and it has the look and feel of a board game.
