LG unveils G3 Screen with homebrewed Nuclun octa-core processor

There’s been a lot of back and forth on LG’s long-rumored mobile processor debut, with the so-called “Odin” SoC tipped to find its way inside the G Pro 2, then the G3, and ultimately the G Pro 3. But as tipsters recently suggested, LG plans to give its first in-house chip a local test run before anything.

Deal alert: Tylt smartphone cases only $10, free shipping

So the Apple iPhone 6/6+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 are out and in full swing. The latest Google Nexus smartphone is about to hit retail shelves too. But even though these newer models are getting much media attention, it doesn’t mean that everyone is choosing to upgrade. Some of us upgrade every other year, or maybe hold out even longer than that. Either way, it’s hard not to get caught up in the “latest and greatest” frenzy.

Kindle Fire HDX 7 lands on AT&T, lucrative Fire Phone bundle deal offered

Well, this is unusual. AT&T is trying to resuscitate stagnant sales of the gimmicky Amazon Fire Phone by bundling it with a one-year-old tablet. Which Ma Bell didn’t directly sell until today. Meanwhile, Amazon is pushing said aging slate less and less, in both Wi-Fi-only and LTE-enabled flavors available with Verizon or AT&T bands.

Verizon opens Sony SmartWatch 3 pre-orders, October 30 launch eyed

Notorious for its tardiness, Verizon has been working hard to improve of late, and its latest win comes in the form of a surprisingly swift Sony SmartWatch 3 rollout. Announced at IFA in early September, the humdrum-looking wearable piece recently popped up on Google Play.

Casio CTK-2400 Sampling Keyboard: A Generous Sampling of Fun

Casio’s CTK-2400 ups the ante on all counts. Its 61 keys give an (admittedly) hobbyist/amateur keyboardist like myself more than enough room to cover the musical spectrum. And beyond the sampling capability, it comes with the full compliment of Casio functions that make the company’s line of inexpensive ($169.99 MSRP, but you can easily find one for under $100), all-in-one (speakers and amplification included for true portability) keyboards so appealing and such a great value.

T-Mobile offers $30 savings on all Samsung gear, Galaxy Note 4 included

It’s not exactly customary to see carriers offer discounts on devices as hotly anticipated as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 mere days after putting them up for sale. But T-Mobile is ready to make an exception.

Moto 360 gets another software update, battery life now even better

Round, retro, silky smooth and not overly pricey, Motorola’s Moto 360 looked like the perfect smartwatch from the get-go. Well, perfect may have been a bit of a stretch, as the initial battery life was far from ideal.

12 ideal careers for gadget nerds

Believe it or not, your love of gadgets could land you a pretty sweet job. Sure, it may take a little schooling, but if you apply the same focus and dedication in your future career as you do with your gadgets, you’ll be just fine.

Motorola Droid Turbo press render leaks

We’ve heard a lot about the upcoming Motorola Droid Turbo in the past few weeks, thanks to a plethora of leaks, even one from Verizon itself where the carrier posted a press render of the device on Twitter, and was promptly removed. The handset is expected to come with a Kevlar casing, and more recently, the prolific @evleaks — who may be back in the leaking game — posted a press render of the alleged handset, showing off its black and red color options. The images do look good, considering the Droid line up isn’t the prettiest of Motorola handsets.

Kinect compatible apps soon to hit Windows Store

While I, personally, haven’t had the opportunity to play around with the Windows Kinect motion sensor, I’ve seen it in action and it looks quite fun. When it comes to gaming on an Xbox, who doesn’t like voice and full-body gesture control? But now, Microsoft is taking things to the next level with its latest SDK 2.0 for Kinect v2 sensors. Soon, we’ll see Kinect-compatible apps in the Windows Store.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 goes official at $300

One of the most bizarre brand associations in today’s tech landscape, bringing Samsung and Barnes & Noble together, has just spawned a new ill-advised offspring. Evocatively dubbed Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1, this is a 10.1-inch GTab 4 with a custom-made Android skin called Nook UI.
