    One of the biggest mysteries of the fall, as ironic as it may sound, is the pastry name that Google will select for the next version of Android. A few months ago we were all certain that Android K would be dubbed Key Lime Pie, and it turned out to be KitKat out of the blue. For now there is still a lot of speculation over the final name of Android L, and given the rumors that Google will announce new Nexus products silently tomorrow, things begin to make more sense with a new teaser launched by Google today. Google has just launched a teaser video named "Sweeeeet" on YouTube, and it's ...

    Apple has already teased that its event on October 16 will be about something that's taken a long time. Many speculate that even though Apple's music event is already history with the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch, we might see a revamp to legacy products like the Apple TV and iPods as well. We do see it as highly unlikely, but we're almost certain that this will be Apple's iPad event, and today we learn more about when to expect it. Trusted sources claim that Apple is already shipping mass quantities of a specific product for a launch on October 24. Sadly we don't know what product this is at ...

    Oppo has done a very good job at remaining under the flagship radar over the last couple of months. The Oppo N1 was clearly one of the best innovations of last year with its swivel camera mechanism and the option for you to buy it running CyanogenMod. The same can be said about the Oppo Find 7a, which is still one of the most powerful flagship smartphones of the year. Oppo's October 29 event is all about the new N3, and today we see some extra teasers of what to expect. Oppo's CEO has taken the time to visit Weibo and give us a glimpse of why the Oppo N3 will be hot. For one, we know that ...

    At this point, you're probably feeling a little Nexus fatigue – and that's understandable. After all, our morning was positively dominated by the latest leaks and rumors surrounding both the Nexus 6 phone and Nexus 9 tablet. But what of Google's launch plans? Are those whispers of a possible October 15 or October 16 announcement accurate? Will Google hold a surprise event, or is this just going to a very low-key “hey, these are up for sale now” blog post? Forbes has just heard from “a source close to Google” and reports that both the Nexus 6 and 9 are set to debut tomorrow. Word ...

    Following Google's new Android videos and that Nexus 6 leak, we're keeping this Nexus train running just a little while longer, though for the next stop, we're switching gears to tablet territory. Probably even more than with the Nexus 6, we've been hearing that the Nexus 9's launch is imminent, set to occur as soon as tomorrow – and really, it's those Nexus 9 rumors that are driving Nexus 6 launch date speculation, and not the other way around. HTC kinda, sorta seems to have confirmed the tablet already, and yesterday one of the company's execs delivered a new teaser to keep our ...

    Having just checked out that latest batch of Google Android videos, we've clearly got the Nexus 6 on the mind. The phone featured in one of those spots sure hit a few Nexus 6 notes, from the big screen size, to the very Motorola-looking body curve, to the unusual positioning for hardware buttons midway down the phone's edge. It remains to be seen if depicting the Nexus 6 was Google's intention there, but as we wait for any sort of official confirmation to arrive, we've got a brand-new Nexus 6 development to check out, with the release of the render you see here, seeming to reveal this ...

    It sure feels like Google could be ready to introduce the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and public release of Android L at nearly any moment; multiple rumors have suggested launches on various days this week, though for the moment Google's done little to have us feeling particularly confident about any given one. But while details of a specific launch announcement may remain unclear, there's definitely something brewing; look no further than to the new trio of Android video ads, one of which sure seems to feature a jumbo-sized Android L phone – perhaps the Nexus 6? You can see that bit in the first ...

    In case it hasn't occurred to you just yet, even with Verizon tweeting a picture of it and a full user manual leaking online, the Droid Turbo is coming, and it's coming soon. This baby of Verizon and Motorola has been exposed so thoroughly by leaks, there's only one detail we don't know (apart from pricing): when it will be officially announced. We now have a date though, thanks to a Droid Turbo launch countdown posted by Verizon itself on its newly-revived Droid Does website: T minus two weeks to launch date. You may question the certainty by which we say that the site is referencing the ...

    Rumors have been quite insistent that some sort of new Nexus hardware is right about to be launched. That might be the Nexus 9 this week, or maybe the Nexus 6 a little later on this month, but the idea that one, if not both of them, are just about to debut is becoming increasingly hard to ignore. And when that hardware arrives, it's almost sure to do so alongside the public release of Android L – but not under that name. After all, the “L” was merely a placeholder until we get the official name of this Android release's dessert of choice. Would it be layer cake? Lemon meringue pie? ...

    Hankering for a new iPad? You're in luck, as with Apple's next press event just days away, we're almost certain to get news of at least one new iPad model. Most likely to make an appearance is the second-gen iPad Air, a tablet we've heard plenty about in leaks and rumors, as well as managed to recently check out on camera – well, at least a dummy unit. Today we step that up to what seems to be some real hardware, before looking some very well done concept renders. First up are the components, and the most notable one here is the tablet's main logic board. It's a bit difficult to make out ...

    We're coming up on two months now from the launch of the HTC One M8 for Windows, an overdue flagship-level WP handset from someone other than the Nokia/Microsoft juggernaut. And while we were very excited to see an Android phone we loved get the Windows Phone treatment, the release of the device left a bit to be desired, hitting the US as a carrier exclusive, bound to Verizon. But even with that restriction we had cause to be optimistic, as it became clear that Verizon's exclusivity was a temporary launch thing, and that other carriers would pick up the phone for themselves in time: ...

    Over the course of the past several weeks, the notion of HTC delivering Google's next Nexus tablet has been looking more and more likely, culminating earlier this week in reported confirmation from an HTC executive. But beyond that, we had FCC docs, leaked renders, and rumor after rumor suggesting this guy was coming. While Google has yet to share any launch plans, a couple dates next week have been suggested as particularly strong possibilities, meaning we could be just days away from the model's debut. But for all the answers about this hardware that seem to have been coming our way, one ...

    It sure looks like Google's got two upcoming Nexus devices in the works, a Motorola-made phone, and an HTC-made tablet. This week, HTC sure seemed to confirm the latter, and rumors have suggested that this Nexus 9 could launch in just about one week, on October 15 or 16. But what about the phone? The presumptive Nexus 6 also seems very much real, having been spotted out in the wild. But when might it arrive? We're coming up on one year from the Nexus 5's launch – could the Nexus 6 also be on the menu for next week's rumored launch announcement? That's a question we find ourselves asking ...

    Just about a month ago, we got word that a new Motorola smartphone had surfaced over at the FCC, showing off its certification paperwork. The details within identified the model as Motorola's codename Quark for Verizon, the phone we expect to publicly launch as the Droid Turbo. With new leaks suggesting that the Turbo is nearly ready to launch, we should soon have the full story on this Android, but until then, we have to keep piecing its story together for ourselves. Today, it looks like one more detail is falling into place, as information about the phone's battery arrives – and it's a ...

    We're just a week a way from an Apple event that we all assume has to do with iPads and iOS 8.1. We've seen some interesting leaks that show iOS 8.1 launching new services like Apple Pay, but it also seems that there could be more under the hood. That same developer that uncovered the Apple Pay leaks has discovered more new stuff to come, and this time it has to do with iPads. At the moment, every single credible source claims that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will not be launched until 2015, and the main reasons point to the fact that Apple prefers to meet the iPhone 6 Plus demand before ...
