Not too long ago, HTC unveiled their latest flagship device, the HTC One M9, at the Mobile World Congress 2015. As always, the company was a little mum about the pricing of the handset, but it may cost $599 in the US.
Just when we thought Sony had a bona fide hit on its hands, and maybe Android’s best shot at challenging Apple’s dominance in the slate landscape, the Xperia Z4 Tablet went up for pre-orders in France.
Happy to see Motorola raise the screen size, processing power and battery capacity bars for the 2015 Moto E, but don’t really need the advanced 4G LTE support? You’re in luck, because a 3G-limited configuration just debuted on the manufacturer’s US website.
It seems Samsung is quite busy not just with the Mobile World Congress 2015, but also when it comes to releasing the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update for a bunch of its handsets.
Knowing Alcatel, and its typical “quantity over quality” M.O., it was obviously surprising to see the French mobile manufacturer keep the MWC 2015 announcements to a minimum. Even more uncharacteristic, the upper mid-range OneTouch Idol 3 handheld pair stood out from the crowd, albeit with a decidedly gimmicky feature.
A bigger name in India than its own homeland of China, low-profile Shenzhen-based smartphone manufacturer Gionee made waves in recent years chiefly with affordable, uber-skinny gear. Remember the early 2014 world’s thinnest handheld, the aptly dubbed Elife S5.5?
Sick and tired of playing the same old imitation and reiteration game, a number of Mobile World Congress exhibitors have tried to stand out this year with unique little innovative features. For Samsung, it was all about the curves.
In addition to standing out from the pack of no-contract US carriers with ultra-affordable prepaid plans and a robust device portfolio, T-Mobile subsidiary MetroPCS often incentivizes new and devoted customers with some of the best hardware deals around.
Two years after launching initial pre-orders, the Myo gesture control armband can be purchased directly from Amazon. This one-size-fits-all device is worn about the arm, and it analyses muscle activity and hand motion while in use. With the correct gestures, Myo lets users control a variety of digital gadgets and technologies. Thalmic Labs, the company more »
You asked for innovation, and you got it. Alcatel’s iPhone 6 size-aping OneTouch Idol 3 pair comes with a unique, “orientation-free” interface that essentially lets you use the two handhelds even when held upside down.
Just because they have a fancy, complex, premium-looking wearable now to rival Motorola’s Moto 360, LG’s G Watch R or the Apple Watch, it doesn’t mean Huawei is abandoning the low-cost activity tracker segment.
Who’s up for some futuristic eye-based smartphone biometric authentication? Yes, today. No, the world’s first handheld capable of recognizing your unique retinal “fingerprint” isn’t an iPhone. Sorry to disappoint you, mainstream Android enthusiasts, but it’s not a Samsung Galaxy either.
