    If you are based in Europe, chances are that you often find yourself in another country, while your phone picks up a foreign carrier's signal, and roams. While international roaming costs are still high enough, the European Commission is trying to further lower rates, until, eventually, these will be completely cleared. Starting July 1, European international roaming costs will drop more than 50% from last summer. Data is getting the biggest cut, one of 55.5%, from 45 cents per MB to 20 cents per MB. A text message will cost 6 cents instead of 8, while for receiving a call you'll pay 5 ...

    The Slingshot Facebook app was launched last week, to take on Snapchat, but it was only available in the US. The new photo and video-sharing app enables users to share what's important with lots of people at once.  As per the description, you can "shoot a photo or video of what you’re up to and sling it to a bunch of friends". Starting today, the Slingshot Facebook app is available internationally. The offering is an alternative to Snapchat, another popular messaging application, with similar features. If you have an Android device or an iPhone, you can grab it from the source links ...

    The Moto X+1 might, or might not show up at Google I/O (we'll definitely know for sure in less than 12 hours), but the phone was leaked and rumored extensively in the past couple of weeks. What you see above, and below, is allegedly a press render of Motorola's upcoming flagship phone. The Moto X+1 press render leaked today seems to confirm the rumors according to which there might be a front-facing speaker on the device. The report claims that the Moto X+1 has a great chance of being unveiled at this year's Google I/O, together with its front-facing speaker and all, but for now that's ...

    As Google I/O is about to kick off, we're seeing some reports concerning iPhone 6 features that will reportedly be included on Apple's 2014 flagship. There were a lot of reports in the past, with leaks, and images of mock-ups, and the trend seems to be continuing. According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 6 will have optical image stabilization (OIS). However, only the 5.5-inch model is believed to sport OIS VCM (voice coil motor), while the 4.7-inch variant, due to yield rates, is expected to feature a "middle-mount open-loop voice coil motor", an improved version of the the one ...

    The LG G Watch has been in the headlines for quite some time, and, with Google I/O just hours away, we finally get some information on its release date. That, together with another Android Wear smartwatch bit, this time, from Samsung, paints a nice image of when these Google-powered wearables will be released. The LG G Watch has been spotted online on e-tailer websites like MobileFun (in the UK and Australia). It is currently listed with pre-order status, but it will apparently start shipping on July 7. Prices vary from region to region, but are around the €223.99/$255 mark. You can ...

    We're getting closer and closer to the iPhone 6 release date, as there are preparations on both the software and the hardware side. Apple has recently released a second beta of iOS 8, while we recently caught a glimpse of the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 in a leaked photo. Next month, July, is when mass production of the largest iPhones ever will start, according to a recent report quoting "people familiar with the plans". While there is no exact iPhone 6 release date yet, the sources claim that the smaller of the two, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 might ship to retailers around September. As far as the ...

    The Samsung Exynos 5433 was initially mentioned in an early June report, when we heard of the company's plans to skip the 5430, and go with the Exynos 5433 instead. On that exact note, there were rumors claiming that one of the upcoming Note 4 models will indeed run on the Exynos 5433 chip, while another variant, for Samsung's home turf, would be powered by the Snapdragon 801 SoC from Qualcomm. Apparently, as you can see in the image above, the Exynos 5433 has been benchmarked by AnTuTu. That, by itself, is not a huge deal, but the fact that it managed to get a higher benchmark score than ...

    Nokia has killed Symbian, as a direct effect of the Microsoft strategic alliance, when the Finns decided to go Windows Phone. Last summer, Nokia was reported to stop shipping Symbian phones altogether, and the 808 PureView was the last of its (Symbian) breed. Now that Nokia is a part of Microsoft --its devices division anyways-- we're looking forward to what is believed to be the Nokia X2. There are less than 20 hours (at the time of this post) until the event where the Android-powered Nokia X will get a follow-up. While the general consensus was (and still is), that it will be a phone ...

    We've recently heard some reports mentioning the future possible size and launch details of the upcoming Apple iWatch, but this latest bit from the Wall Street Journal -- which is most of the times accurate when it comes to Apple -- seems to contradict to a certain extent the previous Reuters report. Today's report claims that there will be not one, but "multiple versions" of the iWatch. In addition to this piece of information, we're also being teased with the fact that Apple's wearable "will include more than 10 sensors including ones to track health and fitness". The report is based on ...

    The Oppo Find 7a's bigger brother will soon reach customers' hands, as the phone is available for pre-order, but those who don't care about a 2K display, or want to take care of their budget, will go for the Find 7a instead of the Find 7. Speaking of it, there's an Oppo Find 7a update ready to be downloaded and installed, with some changes and features inside. Aside from smart cover support, you can now unlock your phone with your voice. For a full list of changes contained in the x9006_12.A.05_INT_005_140605 Oppo Find 7a update, check the screenshot below. It weighs just a little under ...

    Wearable devices are increasingly popular among technology enthusiasts. However, the smartwatch is just one of the products in the wearables category, and, apparently, it is performing worse on the market than other wearable solutions. According to a Digitimes report based on numbers from ABI Research, the activity tracker is outselling the smartwatch. The ratio is four-to-one in the activity tracker's favor. 2.35 million activity trackers were shipped in the first quarter of the year, meaning that those who bought a smartwatch were less than 600,000. "Activity Trackers are currently the ...

    There has been a lot of back and forth regarding the existence of a Nexus 6 this year, ever since Android Silver popped up on the radar. Some of us think, and many agree, that there is a real need for a Nexus 6 this year, despite Android Silver. While some think that there might be no Google phone at all, other reports claim that there will indeed be one, regardless of Silver, or Nexus. What seems to be sure, is that LG won't be making it, so it seems, at least if Ken Hong, LG's Communications Director is to be believed. "I know at least not yet. Normally, we were informed. This can mean ...

    The Apple event for devices is still months away, but the iPhone 6 (in both its incarnations, with different screen sizes) has been rumored, and leaked,  numerous times. However, we're yet to see some solid iPad Air leaks, but this one from today might just represent the start of the leaks to come. Call it iPad 6, the New iPad Air, iPad Air 2, or whatever you like, the pictures above and below claim to depict just that: Apple's iPad Air refresh. At a first glance, not much has been changed. The thing that you will immediately spot is the Touch ID fingerprint scanner that looks to make its ...
