This year for Mobile World Congress was a rebirth of sorts, owing largely to the restructuring of Samsung’s release schedule, Sony’s continued success with their Z series, Nokia’s push of Android, and the next big wave of wearables. We’ve also seen brands like Lenovo and HTC push hard with devices that aren’t aimed directly at the top tier.
AOC might not be at the top when it comes to Android devices, but its budget prices and brand give it a bit of edge over other low-cost options. Now it is trying to bring that combination into a new device segment with the A2272PW4T and A2472PW4T all-in-one Android PCs. All-In-One or AIO PCs are nothing new, even in the Android market.

The HTC One (M8) has been officially unveiled. This means the rumors and leaks will be coming to an end. But perhaps more important here -- it means we are finally going to be able to put the handset to the test. We are curious to see how it stands up in comparison to the previous year HTC One.

We have been briefed on the HTC One (M8) and as such have been able to spend a bit of time with the device.
It seems that NVIDIA is making true its reported focus on a completely new and high end " superphone " market. Its shiny new Tegra K1 processor still has to hit the market but we're already seeing a variant that has only two CPU cores but both of which carry the 64-bit architecture. At CES 2014 early this year, NVIDIA revealed the Tegra K1 processor. Being NVIDIA, the focus wasn't really on the quad-core Cortex-A15 sitting inside but on the whopping 192 GPU cores based on the chip maker's Kepler architecture. The early Tegra K1 benchmarks looked promising, blowing the competition in the mobile market out of the water and even surpassing Intel's Haswell CPU and Iris GPU offering. The only thing that toppled the Tegra K1 was a combination of an Intel CPU and a dedicated NVIDIA mobile GPU.

With HTC's big launch loominglater today, some apps for the new One handset have started dropping prematurely on the Google Play Store.
