    The days of Summer are waning, and here in the United States the trees are beginning to turn lovely shades of red and yellow. You know what that means? Time for a new Nexus phone! Luckily the rumor mill has been running in high-gear for quite some time now and many think they've got the specs of the "new Nexus" pretty nailed down. That is, if the Nexus 5 rumors hold true. I had a whole article in mind following the FCC releases and subsequent renders of what many are calling the "Nexus 5"... then @evleaks had to go and rain on everyone's parade and conclude that the device in the FCC ...

    An interesting report from Nikkei was quoted by Reuters claiming that Microsoft might bring Xbox and PC games to Apple's iOS and Google's Android platforms, among others. It should happen, according to the report, this fiscal year. This move will be reportedly possible via a licensing deal with Japanese smartphone game developer Klab. The Japanese company will be the one who will allegedly bring Microsoft's Xbox and Windows computer games to the iPhone, as well as phones running Android. On that exact note, the report claims that popular title Age of Empires "will be available as a ...

    With the threat of hackers, malware, and all that nasty stuff that goes along with being online as real as ever, more and more companies have been offering their users the option to employ two-factor authentication. That is, beyond the password you know, you also have to be in possession of something – in this case, your smartphone – in order to authenticate yourself. Google's been doing this for a while now, and Apple just got started earlier this year. Following a pattern Windows Phone fans are all too familiar with, now that those two have adopted a new technology, it's Microsoft's ...

    There's a ton of speculation regarding Facebook's April 4th event, and WSJ was quick to lead some of these to merely some additional integration for HTC's BlinkFeed that some of us were already quick to hate. Now, more rumors have emerged from one of our trusted sources, and everything points to the even being something larger than just that. And think about it, with the fact that you can already get Facebook updates on HTC's service, it makes no sense for Facebook to hold an event that's focused on bringing you news on something you already have. First we did see that the press ...

    Camera quality is just one of the many metrics we use to gauge the overall capacity of a smartphone. Alongside performance, battery life, display quality, storage capacity, memory and a host of connectivity and sensors, the camera is one of the more important qualities of a smartphone. Specifications and performance are quickly approaching a threshold where reasonable and modest have been replaced with exceptional and excessive … in a good way. Only two areas are in dire need of improvement: battery life and image sensing. Battery life has met its fair share of hurdles over the years. ...

    While there are quite a few color options available for the Galaxy S III, so far the Note II has only come in gray and white. Don't count on any bright, bold colors for the phone anytime soon, but it looks like Samsung could be planning to at least offer one more neutral tone, with an image surfacing of the Note II in black. Swiss site AndroidSlash reports discovering the above press render of the black Note II, which we've got to admit is a pretty smart look for the phone. It looks like it would still have the textured look of the lighter shades, and of course Samsung's glossy coating. ...

    Ever since the Nexus One, Google has had a device to show off what Android is -- in its purist form. Specifications on these devices haven't been earth-shattering, but they've certainly packed enough power to let the Android OS shine. Generally speaking, these Nexi also featured a new component or two that eventually become commonplace in other devices (NFC, barometer, etc.). Recently Google has also used their "Nexus" line to demonstrate how higher-end phones and tablets can be offered inexpensively (at least if you're in the U.S.A.) through their own Play Store. Up until recently there's ...

    If content truly is king then there are essentially three major players in the game: Apple with iTunes; Google with Play Store; and Amazon with, well, everything. Apple doesn't really sell anything "tangible" through iTunes. Some would argue that they don't sell anything at all, they simply license things to you. Google, at least, sells a couple items through their Play Store, but mostly they just distribute software (apps, music, movies, TV shows, etc.). Amazon, on the other hand, actually sells stuff. They sell everything, not just music and movies and rentals that you download, but ...

    For those of you that think that Apple won't be willing to discard 10-year old technology with their old iPod 30-pin dock connector, think again. If they're ditching disk drives on all their future computers at times when DVDs and CDs are still being sold, this won't be an exception. Recent leaks seem to prove that the dock connector will become smaller, but this is the fist time we find leaks of how the actual male portion of the connector will look like. The new dock connector is so small that a standard-sized USB connector seems huge beside it, but to be honest, it seems no smaller than ...

    If you tend to believe the latest rumors and reports than you can take it for granted that Google's alleged Nexus tablet, made in collaboration with Asus, will indeed be unveiled at the upcoming Google I/O -- happening between June 27 and 29 at San Francisco's Moscone Center. Manufactured by Quanta, the Nexus tablet will reportedly wear a price tag of $199, according to "sources from upstream component makers". Not only that, but the seven-incher will reportedly go on sale in July with expected sales of three million units in the second half of the year. According to DigiTimes, Asustek ...

    Ever since the upcoming iPhone 5's alleged backplate purportedly surfaced on the web, everyone started commenting on the relatively same iPhone stretched out for a larger screen. However, a certain Flickr user, Martin Hajek, took the matter into his own hands and created these beautiful renders based off of what we've seen on the video showing off the alleged backplate. As you can see, the renders are professionally made and look real enough to fool anyone into believing that this is indeed Apple's next smartphone. Let us know of your thoughts below!   Source: Flickr (1)(2) Via: ...
