At CES 2014, I stopped by the Life n Soul booth in a very unlikely place – the Gold Pavillion. Such a booth and all the displayed audio products would have been better suited somewhere in the South Hall. Nonetheless, I took a listen to a few of their headphones, which sounded pretty good. But since this was in the mid-afternoon on the last day of CES, I couldn’t stay long.
After the Galaxy S5, Samsung will show off the Galaxy S6. But wait, this is for next year’s launch so don’t get too excited. The Samsung Galaxy S5′s main rival the iPhone 6 have yet to be unveiled so it pays to be patient.
Known stateside primarily as a budget device manufacturer and owned in part by Samsung, Pantech has been at the forefront of innovation lately, dishing out exquisite high-end smartphone after smartphone. Too bad the Vega LTE-A or Vega Secret Note have never seen daylight outside of Asia. Nor will they.
That was quick. A few days after the Samsung Galaxy S5 release and a new software update is already rolling out. Sprint just announced a software update that is believed to fix a lot of problems.
Filtering out the credible speculation vis-à-vis upcoming Nexus devices from mumbo-jumbo and fabrications with no basis whatsoever is not an easy task as we don’t even know if the “pure Google” gadget line has a future. But usually, where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
Although wrist-mounted tech and activity monitors haven’t been around that long, they’re already wearing out their welcome. A person has only so much wrist real-estate. After you put on your watch, cuff bracelet, awareness bracelets, kabbalah string, slap bracelets, paracord/survival bracelet, and some of those silly bandz to make your kids happy, another object just runs the risk of making you look like an out of control candy raver.
Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei is inviting the press to a May 7 event to be held in Paris, France. We’re expecting the Ascend P7 to be formally announced. But of course, just like any impending launch, we’re seeing more leaked photos and information. And if it’s from @evleaks, we know it’s true and the device is coming soon.
You could even say Facebook is making MOVES into the wearables market, but for now all I can say is that Facebook has acquired a fitness and health app called Moves.

The Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 are now ready for pre-order in Germany. The latest Nokia flagship phone, the Lumia 930, is priced at €600 and will be available starting June 19 in the country.
There’s no shortage of Motorola-centric reports and rumors lately, with most of the gossip focusing on the alleged X+1 and the details of Lenovo’s impending takeover, two subjects again tackled by a somewhat fishy “news” story and, for once, an official Moto statement.
It’s been almost a month since HTC released their flagship device, the HTC One M8 globally. The handset went on sale Verizon for the first two weeks, with other carriers taking online orders. Recently, the prolific @evleaks tweeted an image of the HTC One M8 in a new red color, with Verizon branding on it. It could be possible that Verizon Wireless might score exclusivity on this color, but there’s no official statement from Verizon or HTC at the moment.
