When Amazon launched the Kindle Fire HDX last year it came as quite a surprise because it was a hugely affordable but high spec'd tablet. With a stunning screen and blazing performance, the HDX had a solid claim to being the best small tablet, even in a market that included the iPad Mini Retina, Nexus 7, et al.
When LG launched the G3 flagship back last month, the company's official press shots showed that the G3 would come adorned in five different hues. Fast forward a couple of months and the device is pretty much rolled out everywhere at the moment, but oddly it is only available in three different colors.
IDC results for smartphone shipments in the second quarter of this year show that Samsung is still way out in front, but the Korean company is also the only one in the top 5 to drop sales and lose market share.
If you own the Moto X in the US and are using the country's biggest carrier Verizon, then you should take a gander at the devices update page. That?s because Big Red has been given the Android 4.4.4 update from Motorola and just needs to approve it before rolling it out.
Android Wear won plenty of praise when it was fully launched at Google's I/O event a couple of months ago, not least because it finally gave the wearable trend a functioning and useful platform.
Lenovo is a leading light in all markets when it comes to PC and tablet, but the company only enjoys smartphone success in Asia, which is why it bought Motorola to have more presence in the US and beyond
If we asked you to name the best current Android flagships we imagine some familiar names would appear, among them the HTC One M8.
Samsung's Galaxy W is a device that has interested us since we first heard about it earlier in the year, and now it has been released in China with another name. The device is a huge 7-inch tablet/phablet with phone calling connectivity and it has shown up in the FCC hinting that Samsung will launch the slate in the US in the coming months.
There have been some pretty monumental shifts in the law regarding unlocked phones in recent years in the US, but none as seismic as this. We have been increasingly heading to the unlocking of devices being legal, whereas now it is a grey area, and today the Cellphone Unlocking Bill has passed through the House and President Barack Obama is going to sign it off.
If you are rocking the HTC One M8 and live in Europe you can now take the wrappers off Android 4.4.3 and download the software now.
