Leaked photos show Moto 360 2nd gen, Moto 360 sport

Your newsfeed is probably full of the news that Android Wear will finally be available for iOS devices. You might have missed a few leaks regarding the upcoming new Motorola smartwatches which will be announced at the IFA 2015. If the leaked images from upleaks are to be believed, then the OEM is set to release a slightly different looking 2nd generation of its famous and well-received Moto 360 smartwatch, plus a previously unheard of Moto 360 sport edition.

Android Wear can now work with selected iOS devices

We’ve heard murmurings about this possibility a few months back, but now it’s official: your iOs devices will now be able to sync with Android Wear devices. This is quite a big step for the extremely competitive rivalry between Apple and Android, and it may even signal the start of cross-platform apps and features in the future. But for now, Android Wear users who have iPhones will be able to enjoy it, as well as Apple users who have or are planning to get an Android Wear smartwatch rather than the Apple Watch.

Google On companion app for OnHub router released

Trust Google to come up with products and services we sometimes don't really need or, at least, not yet. Others may not see the importance of having a smart connected home but there are those who'd like to be ahead and quickly adopt the smart home technology once readily accessible.

The previous rumors and recent leaks somehow all point to the possibility of an Android-running BlackBerry device but we have yet to hear from CEO himself John Chen. We all know Chen to be very confident when it comes to saying that the Canadian smartphone pioneer isn't in trouble and is doing okay or is not for sale anytime soon. We believe what he's saying but you can't deny the fact that BlackBerry needs some help now if it wants to remain in the mobile industry. The best thing it can do right now is to finally release a fully Android-powered BlackBerry device which we think is now in the works -- the BlackBerry Venice being the first.

Google Play Services updated to V 8.1 with (unusable) Android Pay 

We thought that the wait for Android Pay was almost over, but a few minutes later, we were proven wrong. We were already disappointed that the rumored launch last Wednesday was obviously wrong, but our hopes were up when the newest update of Google Play Services came out, as Android Pay was already visible. However, this may just be a very short preview, as the feature is still unusable at this point and eventually “disappears”.
