Excited for the new HTC One? The updated flagship is set to launch March 25th, and now we know the exact second it will drop. HTC has created a website showing a countdown timer to the new One, with a clock ticking away down to the very second.
Pebble attracted quite a bit of attention when they launched on Kickstarter. That Kickstarter campaign launched in April 2012, and while they were only looking for $100,000 in funding, they ended up breaking records when the campaign closed a month later at $10,266,845. While Pebble seems to have remained the darling in the smartwatch space since, that came into question a bit when Google announced Android Wear earlier this week.
AT&T is the first of the US carriers to come forward with some Galaxy S5 release details. And nicely, it looks like pre-orders will be opening very soon. In fact, those looking to purchase an AT&T branded Galaxy S5 will be able to do so as early as tomorrow, March 21st.
Samsung announced the Chromebook 2 earlier in the month. This latest Chromebook brings the familiar faux leather back that we first saw introduced with the Galaxy Note 3. Perhaps a bit more interesting though, Samsung unveiled the Chromebook 2 in two sizes -- an 11.6-inch and a 13.3-inch model. And nicely, that 13.3-inch model is sporting a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080.
Sundar Pichai had said Google was getting ready to unveil an Android SDK for wearables. And well, that SDK has been announced this morning. We are taking about Android Wear, which is described as being able to extend the Android platform to wearables. Essentially, Android Wear is the platform and it will be looking towards others to make and sell the actual watches. There have been a few announcements so far, however judging from the partners list -- it seems there is more to come.
With the announcement of the Android Wear platform for smart wearables, Google is also rolling out Developer guidelines for the new project. In checking out those reference notes, Google’s aim becomes a bit more clear. By virtue, we can start examining what our experience with the devices will be like.
Mid-March is here, and so are Android wearables. Google has just announced via their Android blog an SDK, new operating system, or maybe an API. They don’t officially say exactly what it is just yet outside of calling it a “project”, but Android Wear is being aimed squarely at Developers who want to laterally integrate into the wearable sector. Starting with smartwatches, and coming to us by the end of the year, Google wants to occupy your wrist as well as your smartphone.
Sonos has unveiled the latest version of their Android app. This release will bring what is being referred to as a "sleek" new design, and universal search. Users can begin playing with this latest version as of today, but they will need to be willing to run a beta release. Sonos expects this to reach the Play Store as a non-beta release in the "spring."
