HTC ousts Peter Chou, installs Cher Wang as CEO

Changing CEOs is a huge task for a massive company such as HTC. Normally when we see major executive changes, the change comes on a time schedule rather than happening immediately. There are times when companies move faster than that, and that is exactly what smartphone maker HTC has done.

Samsung believed to be in talks with MediaTek

Samsung seems to be really moving away from Qualcomm. Remember those talks about Samsung no longer using Qualcomm products because of overheating issues? The South Korean giant didn't use a Snapdragon on the new Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. The company decided to utilize its Exynos chipset instead. That decision makes senses but we're hearing reports that Samsung is in discussion already with MediaTek--a long time rival of Qualcomm.

Uber partners with Fuhu, adds nabi 2 tablets to uberFAMILY rides

San Francisco-based Uber has recently partnered with Fuhu to bring the nabi 2 tablet to uberFAMILY rides. This new partnership makes moms excited because their young children will now be entertained while at the back of an Uber car. Uber must have noticed that kids can be rowdy at the backseat, kicking the driver's or passenger seat or playing with power windows, that the management thought of giving them something else to do. And since tablets are riveting to little humans, the nabi 2 educational tablet would be the perfect solution.

Android for Work launches, keeps your business separated

As we saw yesterday via IDC's numbers, Android is on a lot of smartphones, and many of those phones travel with their owners to work everyday. Google wants to put them to good use, and as such it has announced the official launch of Android for Work, which we previously heard about last summer. Android for Work keeps your worlds apart and your work tasks secure, and does it all in a way that is simple enough for anyone familiar with Android to use.

Google Inbox to dabble with Google Apps for Work users

Google introduced "Inbox" back in October 2014, and it has been chugging along nicely since then, with those who have been using it generally giving favorable reviews. As promised when Google first introduced it, Inbox takes one's email to the next level, and soon it'll be doing that for business users, as well. The Internet giant recently announced that it'll be rolling out Inbox for a limited number of Google Apps users, and though it plans to keep a tight grip on things for now, Google promises to open up Inbox to a wider array of users "in the coming months".

AdWords app for Android is available initially in Canada but will be launched worldwide very soon. This app is the perfect tool for those who are managing ad campaigns.

Xiaomi’s big US debut won’t include smartphones, tablets

Chinese OEM star Xiaomi is indeed making its way to the US, but before you get your hopes up, we will let VP for International Business Hugo Barra dash them. In a press event at San Francisco, the former Google exec revealed some details about his new overlords' plans to conquer the country. And he made it pretty damn clear: smartphones and tablets are currently not in Xiaomi's US plans. Which perhaps leaves things of lesser interest in the Chinese OEM's product catalog.

Qualcomm loses “large customer”, could be Samsung

It's only January but Qualcomm is already done with the quarter of fiscal 2015. The company was proud to announce a strong quarter with record quarterly revenues. The numbers look good despite facing patent infringement lawsuits by NVIDIA the previous quarter. However, the chip maker is said to be lowering its revenue outlook for the semiconductor business and EPS expectations for the 2nd half of fiscal year. Why do that when the first quarter achieved record revenues?
