Well, this is unexpected. Samsung’s Android gear goes for special prices via all the retailers all the time, but usually, you either get modest savings, or massive ones on older, not-so-hot-anymore gadgets.
Just so there are no misunderstandings, let me start off by rephrasing the question in the article’s headline. Is anyone in the market for a budget LTE-capable Android handheld that’s not the Moto G 4G?
The Asus VivoTab Note 8 is a pretty snazzy little Windows 8.1 tablet. It’s punchy and frugal, courtesy of a quad-core Intel Bay Trail-T processor, it’s solidly built yet sleek and slim, plus it offers an important productivity edge compared to most sub-10-inch Win slates, thanks to the professional Wacom active stylus support.
Little known Florida-based mobile phone manufacturer Blu Products knocked it out of the park in a first at-bat in the Windows Phone décor, recently launching a little guy that makes even Nokia Lumia 500-series handhelds feel overpriced.
For a while there, it felt like a sociopath with a deep hatred for everything Apple took control of Samsung and dictated there would only be commercials and publicity stunts focused on the archrival. And JK Shin strikes us as anything but a sociopath.
There’s no telling how long it’s going to take Google to force KitKat upon enough Android devices for it to overpower Jelly Bean, the current heavyweight champion of the mobile world. Or, in fact, if KK’s time will ever come, given a new Android port, codenamed L, is right around the corner.
With most manufacturers done with their device announcements, the rumor mill has its eyes set on the upcoming Nexus device, codenamed Shamu, which will be apparently manufactured by Motorola. We’ve seen several leaks related to the device, including leaked images, as well as the rumored specifications. Recently, the folks at Android Police managed to get more information about the alleged device, some of it was already known.
Samsung’s half-metal/half-plastic A-Series product lineup stopped being a secret a long time ago, but although intel on the upcoming Galaxy A3, A5 and A7 has been gradually dripping for weeks, the leakage simply cannot be contained.
You know how the looming Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 is tipped to pretty much look like an overblown 2014 Moto X with (far) superior technical specifications? As it turns out, the next member of the stock Android-running device family may also take after another Moto, the Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo.
Admittedly, I don’t have the best associations when it comes to OkCupid. I attribute this to the fact that my friend’s creepy roommate used to browse OkCupid profiles in the dark, and something about it felt like a bad episode of Law and Order: SVU. However, he always had a girlfriend so it was clearly working for him. That being said, I fully support OkCupid’s data collection blog, “OkTrends,” because it uses OkCupid’s dating powers for good! Quite the rarity. In their own words, “we’ve compiled our observations and statistics from hundreds of millions of OkCupid user interactions, all to explore the data side of the online world.” And their latest research-based post was created to help users take better profile pictures.
The Kickstarter-funded Pebble smartwatch is a classic and, despite the best efforts of much more experienced device manufacturers, its popularity and especially bang for buck factor remain almost impossible to beat.
I first encountered Life N Soul at CES 2014. To me, they’re a very new company, but have a very big heart when it comes to audio and music. Their style draws you in and the sound keeps you around. Bluetooth wireless headphones are “in” right now. Does the Life N Soul BE501 have what it takes to compete? Read on and find out!
