Google outs Infinix HOT 2, first Android One phone in Africa

There's been an explosion in Africa and no, it's not the deadly kind. Google just said that because Internet is exploding in Africa, it's time the search giant brings the Android One program to most of the countries in the continent including Ghana, Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya, Egypt, and Ivory Coast. For the first time, Google partnered with hardware maker Infinix to bring the low-cost, entry-level smartphone in Africa.

The OnHub router is Google’s entry to your home

The Google OnHub router was unveiled recently as a sign that the mothership is full-on committed to getting into your digital home. Don’t be fooled by the classy, cylindrical design – although we wouldn’t blame you one bit if you did, it does look really nice – the router is powerful enough not just to bring you your internet connectivity, but also to be the central hub of Google’s plan to automate and digitize your home.

Google finally gives Hangouts its own webpage

The battle of the free messaging apps has received another interesting turn of events. While Viber, WhatsApp, Snapchat, LINE, etc have been making lots of updates and adding new features, Google would like to tell you that their own messaging app isn’t giving up just yet. In fact, with this latest move, they might even be giving the frontrunners a huge scare. That’s because Hangouts has now received its own webpage, away from Gmail or Google+.

Google finally unveils Android Marshmallow lawn statue

The secret is out. The next dessert Google is serving the Android community is Marshmallow. It's not really a dessert but more like a confectionary or special candy (then again Lollipop is a candy). It's not something that will make you satisfied, just good enough to fill your empty stomachs something until your meal is ready. Aside from Muffin, I was betting on this one but then Milkshake sounded better. Oh well, Google already made a decision and this year's Android statue was unveiled earlier today.

Project Ara’s market pilot re-routed, no more Puerto Rico launch

We've always been optimistic about the Project Ara but looks like we have to wait some more before we finally see an actual modular phone from Google. This project is taking so long and we were promised by the Internet giant it will be ready this year first in Puerto Rico. Sadly, some major changes have been made-- there will no longer be a Puerto Rico market launch due to some "recalculation".

Android M: Guess what’s for our next dessert

We've all been waiting for Android M. The Developer Preview may have rolled out and updated the next mobile platform already but we have yet to know what 'M' really stands for. I am personally rooting for 'Muffin' because it's one yummy dessert but the Android team recently posted a teaser photo on Twitter. It seems the choices are down to three: Moon Pie, Milkshake, and Malt Ball.

Android Community Weekly Digest: Aug. 16, 2015

Samsung has finally unpacked its gameplan for the second half of the year all the way to 2016's flagship. And while there were definitely a lot of things that happened this week, it will be hard to deny how the Korean manufacturer has practically monopolized the mobile world's attention last Thursday. After all, when you're one of the most popular (or unpopular) Android device maker and you're financials aren't exactly glowing, then people are bound to get interested in what you have to offer to turn things around. This is your Android Community Weekly Digest for August 10 to 16, 2015.

New business-ready Dell Chromebook 13 introduced

Google is really pushing for the Chromebook product line and with the help of several laptop makers like Dell, the Internet giant will definitely achieve its goal of bringing Chrome OS to a lot of laptops (probably millions) around the world. The company recently introduced that new Dell Chromebook 13 as a follow-up to the Dell Chromebook 11 released a few months ago.

Blackview packaging turns into a Google Cardboard VR viewer

We haven't heard of the Blackview brand before but the Alife P1 Pro definitely got our attention because of its very unique packaging. Why, the cardboard box that houses the Android phone can be converted into a Google Cardboard. This is one ingenious design that we can consider as geeky green because aside from carrying a phone inside, you can use the packing as another techie device. It's giving the box another use aside from just being well, the box.
