    One designer un(?)intentionally teased every HTC fan with a floating, "Ocean" concept phone that had everyone buzzing about buttonless hardware touch controls on the siderails of the phone. Would such a phone with "Sense Touch" UI really come out anytime soon or would it just remain what it was — a concept? One HTC ...

    It seems that the Google "G" logomark will be the look of the season. The ads are there, the rumors back it up and now we have pictures of a $69 Chromecast Ultra, courtesy of VentureBeat and Evan Blass. Compare it to Chromecasts of yesteryear and you'll find not much change in form factor, even though the existing ...

    Even though the HTC-made Nexus phones for 2016 have moved monikers, it seems that there's a Nexus straggler coming out of Huawei. Casual droppings about the company "doing the Nexus again this year" have been pretty shallow so far, but this "Huawei 7P" hasn't had a blockbuster leak yet for it to "justify" its existence. ...

    Let's be frank: there are quite a few options for phones with a 5 amp-hour battery. It's a sweet spot as a number and it's also where you could pull through a good chunk of a second or maybe even a third day. The price and specification compromise also seems fitting at this precipice. So, what does the Alcatel Pixi 4 ...

    While several Android device manufacturers have named or at least strongly suggested names of phones and tablets due for official 7.0 UI makeovers… eventually, there’s no update deadline as far as a single non-Nexus product is concerned. And we’re not expecting any for a few more weeks. Possibly, even a month or ...

    Nexus phones are almost certainly getting “Pixelated”, the age-old second-gen N7 tablet might be in for a long overdue sequel of sorts this year too, and then you have first-party VR hardware, a Google Assistant-powered home automation hub, 4K-capable Chromecast, as well as a Pixel 3 laptop. Wait, what Pixel 3 ...

    Mere hours after we expressed concern over the rumored $70 price tag of the upcoming Google Chromecast Ultra with 4K and HDR support, California-based digital media player veteran Roku decided to try to steal the search giant’s thunder by unveiling a bunch of new set-top boxes starting at $30. Mind you, the ...

    Microsoft has recently cranked the anti-Apple advertising rhetoric back up, although not in a particularly convincing fashion, likely looking to keep last year’s Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book convertible PCs in the limelight for a few months longer, as major hardware revisions could still take a while.

    Is Apple in (even more) trouble after a few consecutive sub-par quarterly reports, and a general hardware popularity slowdown? Well, that’s the thing – no one really expected the iPhone 7 to set any new box-office records. Not once it was clear this wouldn’t be a year of major upgrades. Thus, it shouldn’t come ...
