HTC’s One X smartphone has been pictured in press-shot form, days ahead of the Android quad-core’s official debut expected to take place at MWC 2012, and complete with dedicated Ice Cream Sandwich control buttons. The handset, previously known as the HTC Edge and Endeavor, is expected to run Android 4.0 and Sense 4.0 on NVIDIA’s Tegra [...]
The OnePlus X breaks new ground for the young Chinese company. Making the X, OnePlus eschewed its usual formula of stuffing the best processor in a ridiculously cheap phone. Instead, it has repurposed the internals of its debut OnePlus One into a smaller phone with a lower $249 price tag. But in achieving that admittedly impressive feat, it's gone against its own mantra.
Advertising on the internet is commonly accepted these days, as is ads in things like magazines. But receiving ads on a smartphone, and one that's been fully paid for? Now that's bound to push a few people's buttons. Unfortunately, it's exactly what HTC has done recently, pushing an advertisement in the form of a notification to its One M9 , M8, and M7 model phones.
Ford may have popularized "any color you want as long as it's black," but Microsoft is taking a far more flexible approach to Surface Book sales. Though shipments of the convertible notebook-tablet hybrid aren't expected to begin until Monday, the company has quietly added a new configuration seemingly targeted at those with more ambitious graphical demands but a tighter budget.
Xiaomi may have been upstaged by Huawei in the Chinese mobile market last quarter but that won't stop the company from launching powerful devices. Last year's Mi Pad now has a follow-up in the form of a Mi Pad 2 albeit still a rumor. No official announcement has been made yet but after several rumors, here is another evidence that the device will be available soon.
This isn't the first time Uber vehicles have ever delivered ice cream. It is the first time Uber Denver specifically planned out an elaborate way to bring the entire city their fix on a 90-degree day in both Colorado Springs and Fort Collins. While you'd expect that having ice cream hand-delivered to wherever you happen to be in a city wouldn't be cheap, this delivery comes at a mint.
At the start of 2015, Sony effectively gave up on making smartphones in the hope of recapturing former glories. Its mobile division now loses the company nearly $2 million per day even after being slimmed down to a fraction of its former size.
Samsung 's upcoming S Pen powered phablet has almost all but been leaked out, but there is one aspect of it that still boggles the mind: the S Pen itself. After all, what is a Galaxy Note without the stylus? While that part is, of course, already expected and even leaked, nobody seems to agree on how the stylus can be removed from the smartphone's body.
If you've invested in one of a few " NVIDIA Tegra Note 7 " tablets, sold by other companies of course, and have been green with envy over all the attention showered on NVIDIA's SHIELD devices, then maybe its time for a change of color.
Earlier this year it became apparent that HTC was releasing ads disguised as notifications to users - now Samsung may be on the same path. What we're seeing here is a set of notifications that'll pop up in the pull-down notifications and settings menu on an Android device - newer Samsung devices, in this case - that'll link to a Samsung webpage where the items advertised are for sale.
The lines in the Android vs iOS battle (with some Windows fans demanding to be let in as well) have always been clearly drawn. It is rare to find people who can say, “Yeah, I like both and can easily work with either”. It’s either you’re an Apple fanboy or an Apple hater who thinks Android is the best thing since sliced bread.
The Nvidia Shield is almost certainly more important to Google than it is to Nvidia. After the failure of Google TV—in part thanks to its lacklustre UI and poor developer support—its follow-up Android TV needed to do better. Unfortunately, that hasn't quite happened.
Summer’s dialing down in some places, but the hot days aren’t behind us (in fact, they’re becoming something of a problem ), and that means there’ll probably be another rapidly melting ice cream cone in your immediately future. Melted ice cream is a disappointment, as you likely know — you can pretend it’s a milkshake all you want, but deep down inside you know it’s a poor excuse.
Anticipation has been building for several weeks now about a possible announcement from manufacturer Xiaomi on their next Mi smartphone. We've recently seen leaks and rumors about the device's camera and possible specs, but now it seems like the Chinese smartphone maker is ready to unveil the expected Mi5.
Does a quad core workstation have to be as bulky as it's powerful? HP clearly doesn't believe so, and having spent some time with the new HP ZBook Studio today, I'm inclined to agree. At 18mm thick it classifies as an ultrabook, but HP is courting dissatisfied MacBook Pro users who want the power of a full Intel Core i7 or Xeon processor. Happily, all that power needn't mean backache to match.
In the future, you might not have to rush to eat your ice cream cone on a hot summer's day. Scottish researchers have discovered a naturally occurring protein that binds the air, fat and water in ice cream, which slows melting. The move would prevent your dessert from becoming a puddle, and spare companies from deep freezing their treats for as long as they do today.
OTT DEVICES DRIVE DIGITAL VIDEO STREAMS FOR HULU: While mobile devices are driving a significant uptick in digital video consumption in the US, OTT devices like smart TVs, connected devices, and gaming consoles are driving long-form premium content, according to a new report from Hulu.
Nintendo kicked off its first Nintendo Direct live-video presentation since the passing of company head Satoru Iwata with an announcement of a Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U, but not the one we'd been anticipating.
