    Much like LG, Sony keeps bleeding money in the mobile tech segment while earning in many other departments more than enough to survive. Of course, LG washing machines and TVs have nothing on PlayStation hardware and software, though at the same time, there’s no Xperia on the horizon capable of the shipment numbers ...

    While we can’t be sure it has anything to do with that recent wave of “structural” changes and executive reshuffles, or even more recent warranty controversies, Motorola is clearly behind its traditional product release schedule.

    The Nexus nebula, as thick as it is, could use some more muddying. Huawei had done a bang-up job with the Nexus 6P according to critics across the board. There was a little doubt to its future-proofedness, though: it had a Snapdragon 810 and 3GB of RAM. These specs were old news by the end of September last year. ...
