Samsung opens new factory to keep up with Galaxy S6 edge demand

A few weeks ago we learned that Samsung can't keep up with demand for Galaxy S6 and now even the dual-edged Galaxy S6 edge supplies are running out fast. Pre-orders for S6 edge reached 5 million when the latest flagship phones were launched last March. We don't have the exact numbers right now but it seems there are more demands for the S6 edge and Samsung needs to act fast to deliver units not only in South Korea but the rest of the world.

Lenovo K80 launched to lock horns with ASUS ZenFone 2

So how many mid-tier phones do you know out there with dual-channel 4GB RAM? “Not a lot” is the answer you’ll get, most probably. In truth, the ASUS ZenFone 2 was indeed the first one out there to utilize this much RAM. Then that was followed by Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro phablet. But those two are not in the same category. Now Lenovo is coming out with the K80, yes, with 4GB of RAM and a lot closer to where the ZenFone 2 is, market-wise.

ASUS ZenFone 2 starts selling in India

The ASUS ZenFone 2 – designed to compete, out-perform, and out-price most mid-tier phones out in the market today – has just started selling in one of the fastest growing markets for smartphones today, which is India.

Send yourself notes from desktop to smartphone through Google

You're busy doing something on your desktop when you suddenly realize that you've run out of milk at home and you need to pass by a convenience store before going home.

Nexus 7 no longer available on Google Store

It looks like the reports are true regarding the fate of Google's Nexus 7. You won't be able to find the tablet anymore in the Google Store as it has officially been discontinued since last Friday. This has been coming about since last fall, after the release of the Nexus 9, so it's not really a surprise. While you can probably still find one if you look really hard, removing it from the Google Store lessens its availability.

ZTE SPRO 2 Smart Projector: hands-on at IFA 2015

Remember the ZTE SPRO 2 projector that made its way into AT&T's catalog last week? Chances are, you probably didn't get too hyped up about a portable projector. But these things seem to be growing in number and popularity these days that you can no longer ignore their presence. At the IFA 2015 press conference last week, ZTE took the chance to show off the Android-powered smart projector, and we took a hands-on spin just to see for ourselves what the device is all about.

Yahoo to reportedly launch search and digital assistant this year

Yahoo is now saying, "Wait, wait, we'd like to join this party too!" CEO Marissa Mayer has indicated that they are indeed coming up with their own digital assistant that will be available as an app for mobile devices.

New Asus VivoWatch to be sold in watch, not gadget, stores

You would expect that smartwatches will be sold where smartphones are usually sold, since they are more of a gadget rather than an actual watch (although they do tell time). But Asus sees it diferently, at least when it comes to their brand new wearable, the VivoWatch. Instead of heading to your nearest gadget stores, you might want to step in to stores where they sell old-school watches as this is where you'll find the newest smartwatch from Asus.
