When it comes to tablets, Amazon keeps it fairly frugal by giving out some barebone hardware, yet promising a smooth experience. That's recipe for a $50 tablet that became a runaway hit. But its bigger tablets haven't been getting as much love. Competitors have been more price-aggressive in the eight-to-ten inch range. Amazon's token response is to give its Fire HD 10 a new coat. Specifically, a silver aluminium coat. Nothing has changed between the 1280 x 800 display, MediaTek processor or the price — still $229.99 for a 16GB starter. It's a subtle change. Perhaps it may be too subtle? ...

Google is taking a new view of what its keyboard can be. But you have to get the latest software to take a look at it. If you can get the latest Android N Developer Preview onto your applicable device and also have Google Keyboard version 5.0, there's a whole menu in the settings dedicated to changing the color of the keyboard. Not only can you choose from a few hues, but you can upload your own pictures — taking away one of the biggest tricks up the sleeve for third-party keyboards. Yep, owners of phones with AMOLED displays can enjoy pitch black power savings when they're typing up ...

Motorola celebrated the birth of its Moto G⁴ triplets in India today and we seem to still be in baby shower mode. Profiles of the Moto G⁴ models have officially gone up on Motorola's website, but there's a telling comparison chart at the bottom of the Moto G family page. Both the standard Moto G⁴ and the Moto G⁴ Style have different eight back coloring options that can be chosen through Moto Maker. It's down from the 10 the Moto G 3rd Gen. had. The budget-focused Moto G⁴ Play doesn't have any back coloring options — the lack of that feature and several others puts the ...

We heard that the HTC 10 would break outside of the pallid phone palette that other manufacturers have stuck to for a long time. You know what we're talking about. Black. White. Gold. Oh no, not ... roooooose goooold. But hey, a strong, bold red wouldn't be bad on this shiny new phone, right? Well, ePrice out of Taiwan is reporting that most everyone will be missing out on this red version, at least for now. You know who will get it, though? KDDI au subscribers. In Japan. Well, shucks. Mind you, even though the HTC One A9 had its iPhone tendencies, it had some darn good hue selections, ...

We don't know. It's a week from Valentine's Day and the tackiest, but most appropriate color is being talked about once again (and again and again). This year's four-inch iPhone that will likely come in the next month or so supposedly now has a pink option in addition to the silver and space gray options already in the ol' rotation. Our rumor reaper says that a rose gold situation will be averted for deep hue deal, sorta like that iPod touch you see above. But yeah, a pink iPhone 5se certainly wasn't out of imaginations and it isn't now. Source: Maco Takara (Google Translate) Via: Redmond Pie

Tired of this played out color yet? Even with the real genuine article? Don't worry. Smartphone industry underdog Sony, as we expected, has kept its rose and gold separate and we mean real separate. Like, months apart. Sony has announced a new color for the Xperia Z5: "a warm, sophisticated pink." Designer Rikke Gertsen Constein called upon influences "from nature and Japan's own Sakura cherry blossom right through to the colours in the sky during a beautiful sunset." Now, take yourself away from your cynicism for a second: color-wise, it's a cooler pink than most other pinks out on ...

Remember that HTC Aero leak with the side-by-side comparison of the "champagne" iPhone? Remember how intense that hue stared at you into your soul? Are these good or bad memories we're forcing you to remember? Well, with all the other Aero rumors about the specs and release date still up and walking the moon, we might as well chew on the fruit that drops first. Six different colors are expected for the HTC One A9 palette. One of them is called "Acid Gold." Another has gold in the name. Three of them are shades of gray. And the last one is definitely pushing into pomegranate territory ...

Three years ago, you were lucky if your smartphone display had a few hundred thousand pixels. WVGA (480 by 800 pixels) was sort of a standard resolution back then, and mobile display technology still had a long way to go before pixel junkies would drool over a smartphone screen. Black levels were usually a milky, dark gray, unless you opted for a Samsung smartphone with a Super AMOLED panel. But then you had to consider the disadvantages of the PenTile Matrix subpixel arrangement. Back on 2011, I didn't stress about such things often. I didn't worry about color accuracy, black levels, ...

For the last four years, save for a few different models, practically every smartphone started to look the same and came in a very limited choice in color (or lack thereof, technically): black or white. And in the last year or so, several OEMs have started to "revolutionize" the industry by offering a marginally broader selection of colors. Nokia has introduced a handful of different models with some standardized color options: candy red, yellow, cyan, white, and black. HTC also jumped on the colored bandwagon with its Windows Phone models, offering red, yellow, blue, purple, black, and ...

The Nokia Lumia 1020 is the most advanced camera phone ever to see the light of day. It's a stunning upgrade to the Lumia 920 and a fitting sequel to the 808 PureView, one whose potential has been met with fairly universal praise from the Pocketnow team, and from most others in the blogosphere. When it launches on Friday, I'll be in line at the AT&T store to claim my very own unit, just as I was for its predecessor. But, as you may recall from the video documenting my launch day Lumia 920 purchase, I was put off back then by a few oversights on AT&T's part - and also by some lapses ...

Without giving away too much from our upcoming HTC One review I can tell you this much: the phone doesn't only look extremely good but it also feels exceptionally well in the hand due to the build quality and materials of choice. The aluminum on the HTC one comes in two color flavors: white and black. Which one should you go for? That's up to you to decide after watching the video comparison below. Today I'll tell you which One is my favorite. I'm a classic guy so chances are you won't be seeing me running around with fancy colors like yellow, blue, green, and alike (though I'll tell you ...
