Sony’s latest Moto G slayer barely went up for sale via (some) online retailers stateside, and Expansys already saw fit to adjust the entry-level Android’s no-contract price tag. Initially available at $199.99, the Xperia E3 suddenly dropped to $139.99, which actually makes it a decent Moto G alternative.
Still having trouble discerning between all of LG’s derivative G3 versions? Can’t figure out for the life of you why the G3 S is dubbed that way in certain regions, and named G3 Beat elsewhere? Wish you’d have never heard of the G3 A or G3 LTE-A?
Much virtual ink has been spilled over the years on Sony’s mystifying inability to widely release its amazing Android-powered gear on the North American continent. But just when we were about to completely lose hope for a reversal of fortune, the Xperia Z3 trio came to light.
Not all amazing tech products bring something entire new and different to the table. Sometimes all you need is the right ingenuity to combine existing features, and to also have an eye for design. That’s exactly what the development team behind the Bluesmart connected carry-on did.
One of the more surprising recent Google releases, the Nexus Player set-top box, and perhaps the most predictable in a while, the Nexus 6 phablet, are expected to roll out to end users at around the same time.
It seems the mega-success of the first-generation mid-range Galaxy Mega phablets caught everyone off guard, Samsung included. Otherwise, we can’t explain why the sequel took so long to materialize. Or why the original 5.8/6.3 inch pair spawned just the one heir.
Remember the good old times when Apple proclaimed the iPhone 5’s use of a “bigger” 4-inch panel a “dazzling display of common sense”? When 5 inchers were marketed as tablets? Clearly, a new era is upon us, as hardware manufacturers are now adding the “Mini” suffix to names of devices once considered unwieldy giants.
Today, in the latest installment of the never-ending “what is Verizon thinking?” saga, we’re beyond heartbroken to report America’s largest wireless carrier may have delayed its Nokia Lumia 735 launch.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know devices part of Google’s Nexus family will be first in line for Android 5.0 Lollipop updates, as they’ve been every time a new OS version was released. But the product roster grew and grew over the years, and Lollipop is perhaps the most radical, richest goodie pack in Android history.
Despite the HTC First “Facebook Phone” flopping so hard last year that it prompted AT&T to halt sales mere months after the gadget’s introduction, rumors ran rampant recently as to Mark Zuckerberg possibly wanting a do-over.
It’s the classic good news/bad news scenario. Hot on the heels of Motorola’s bold Android 5.0 Lollipop proclamations, Sony went on record with its own upgrading pledge. That’s the good news, of course, the bad being it’ll take the Xperia makers a few months to stabilize the first L port and send it OTA.
Perhaps the best part of any new Android version announcement has little to do with the actual intro, going down in the days, weeks and months following the formal unveil. It’s this general, overpowering sense of wholeness, as each and every player in the game goes the extra mile to rapidly skin, modify, customize and finally release over-the-air software updates.
