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.
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.
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!
With little to no fanfare, Samsung just took the wraps off its umpteenth entry-level Android smartphone, dubbed Galaxy Ace Style LTE. The 4.3 incher carries the convoluted SM-G357FZ model number and is not to be mistaken for the Ace 4, Ace 4 LTE or Ace Style. All of which have seen daylight earlier in 2014.
And so the circle is complete. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 pre-order circle, that is, with a shipping start still a little ways down the road.
It’s no longer a big secret Samsung’s reluctance towards using metal for Android smartphones, mid-rangers included, is a thing of the past. And since prudence has never been the OEM’s forte, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise the plunge into aluminum waters will be a sudden and abrupt one.
It’s no secret Nokia’s been struggling with sales for years, particularly in developed markets like the United States. And while Nokia’s executive team is primarily to blame for the OEM’s deepening financial pickle, which ultimately prompted a Microsoft buyout, US carriers played their own key part in the free fall of a giant.
Despite our best intentions, sometimes our gadgets run out of power at the worst times. Maybe it’s a Bluetooth earpiece for GPS directions, or it could be a portable keyboard to type on while you’re enjoying coffee at a local joint. Even though external battery packs are everywhere, especially in very portable sizes, we don’t always remember/want to bring one.
By now, you’re probably all aware of Samsung’s “metal initiative”, set to bring forth an avalanche of superiorly built mobile gear, aimed at the upper class of consumers, but also at “proletarians”.
As suspected, Motorola’s preferential treatment of AT&T in regards to 2014 Moto X availability didn’t last long, and Ma Bell merely got to accept pre-orders and ship a few units before Verizon entered the picture.
