Motorola, who have seen a downward trend in recent years, have risen once again. This time, their European market share is showing promise, as they’ve been found to have a 6% market share in the UK. While their recent Moto X flagship altered the way many think of Android devices, it seems their mid-tier Moto G is to thank for the European uptick.
The UK has their first true LTE mid-range device. EE is responsible for bringing this one to the masses, with their self-branded Kestrel. The device, in addition to being an LTE capable handset, has another feature many will be interested in: a staggeringly low price tag.
Google did deliver its promise to bring the Chromecast to more regions, and were we in for a surprise. While most of the speculation has been lavished on the UK, the company has made its streaming dongle also available in 10 other countries.
Google’s Chromecast streaming dongle has made its way across the pond. Those in the UK who are now interested in trying out the mobile-centric streaming device can get one via various UK retailers. Already selling like mad, some retailers are noting it as out of stock or available in-store only.
HTC has been doing a bit of teasing for the upcoming "All New" One. Naturally, the leaks and rumors have also been flowing at a steady rate. The handset will be unveiled on March 25th, and while we have yet to get an official look just yet, there are some availability details beginning to surface.
Google has just pushed an update to the Chromecast Android app that looks just a tad normal. However, given recent circumstances and new leaks, the nondescript update might be paving the way for the streaming dongle's international release.
Samsung has offered up a date for Galaxy S5 preorders. The date is March 28th and applies to those in the UK. Details coming from Samsung include how the Galaxy S5 preorders will be available from "selected" retailers. Also worth noting, the handset will be available direct from Samsung, as well as from the Stratford Westfield Experience Store.
Owners of Samsung's 2013 flagships from across the pond should have something to celebrate today. The awaited Android 4.4 update for the Galaxy S 4 as well as the Galaxy Note 3 has been reported to be now flowing out to users in the UK.
While HTC One owners in the US are just enjoying their Android 4.4 update, those in the UK are a bit in limbo. After waiting for weeks for their turn, HTC has pulled out the OTA updated from its UK servers due to reported difficulties.
