Moto G hands-on and first-impressions

Today we've been introduced to Motorola's national and international strategy for taking command of the growing mid-tier smartphone market with the smartphone called Moto G. This device is set to be priced at a cool $179 USD off-contract in the United States and comparable costs outside the states, making it a rather enticing proposal for prospective smartphone users both inside the USA and internationally. What we're doing today is having a peek at this machine as it prepares to launch in Brazil, then Europe, and eventually (by January) inside the USA as well.

Nexus 5 hands-on: photos, benchmarks, first impressions

In the Nexus 5 you'll find Google's biggest effort yet in their unique "pure" take on Android, both physically and metaphorically. You've got LG-made hardware here with a display that's the most massive Google has issued for a Nexus smartphone, appearing at 4.95-inches of LCD with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. That's 445 PPI, and beaten only by the HTC One's sharpness of 469 PPI due to it's smaller display at 4.7-inches with the same amount of pixels.

Motorola Project Ara takes on the modular smartphone challenge

While smartphone mobile platforms have, to some extent, somewhat peaked, the same cannot be said about the hardware that runs the software. And while open source software has pretty much become a part of our lives, in no small part thanks to Android, open hardware is still pretty much an unreachable dream. A group within Motorola's research arm, however, might just have the answer to that with Project Ara.

Samsung remains primary Apple supplier through 2014 despite deal with TSMC

Word surfaced back in April that Apple distancing itself from fierce competitor Samsung, forming a partnership with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Those plans didn't pan out immediately, however, because the Taiwanese company - called TSMC - failed to make chips that were up to Apple's various standards. Today TSMC announced that it has ironed out the issues and officially entered into a deal with Apple, but through the next year Samsung will remain the company's main supplier.

Kazam created by ex-HTC execs, aimed for European market

Getting a fresh name out in the industry has always proven to be difficult. Sony wasn't always as widely known as it is now, and certainly neither was Samsung. Even some companies as big as Lamborghini (who used to make farm tractors) and Coca Cola (which was marketed as stomach medicine) suffered in the very beginning. But in an ever-crowded market, comes a new company from HTC's old executives, called "Kazam". The big question is, how will it stack up?

What Google didn’t announce at I/O 2013

Google I/O is going on full steam right now, and Google has just finished up the keynote full of announcements. So is there anything that Google didn't announce this morning? Absolutely. There is plenty that was expected that wasn't announced, but there's also plenty that wasn't announced that is probably new we'll be spotting all week long. For now, lets talk about what didn't happen.

Adobe entering the hardware space with Project Napoleon and Mighty

When it comes to Adobe the first thought of many is likely to be something software related. Up until now, that would have been the case. Moving forward though, it looks like Adobe will have Project Napoleon and Project Mighty. Both of these are hardware items and yes, they will both work together. Napoleon deals with a digital ruler and Mighty deals with a cloud connected pen.
