    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 ...

    It's funny to admit that no matter where you go, anyone that notices that you're using an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 6 Plus will most likely ask you if your phone has bent. This is to say that yes, "bendgate" was a huge driving force of bad publicity for the iPhone 6 Plus, though you'd think it would be bad enough to affect Apple's demand for the device. Actually, the reality is quite the opposite, and even though Apple hasn't provided any solid iPhone 6 Plus numbers, some credible sources have just detailed its status. According to the Wall Street Journal, the demand for the iPhone 6 Plus is ...

    For some, there's nothing cooler than to be able to immerse yourself in the game you enjoy the most. Playing games on a touch screen can be cumbersome as you either cover the screen with your fingers, or you simply can't enjoy the lack of physical controls. Samsung is trying to solve that with its Gear VR, though new reports claim that it isn't succeeding yet. Reports claim that the Gear VR is considerably overheating after around 25 minutes of use. It is definitely uncomfortable for any product to overheat after use, but for this to be a device that you wear on your head, a lot needs to ...

    Apple made a big deal about its new Apple Pay service when it announced the iPhone 6. The service shouldn't be out until the next couple of weeks, though we're sure that Apple's iPad event will shed some light on October 16. We still question if this service will take off or follow on Google's footsteps, but today's rumors show that Apple is still full-steam ahead. A developer has just discovered some hidden options for Apple Pay buried within iOS 8.1 beta. We did hear that iOS 8.1 would be the official launch of Apple Pay, though the first beta didn't show any information to validate ...

    Apple has just announced its press invitations for an event to happen on October 16, and historically this has everything to do with Macs and iPads. If you're wondering what changes are coming to the new iPads, we've heard that they're getting significantly thin, but there's nothing better than a visual demo of what to expect. A very credible Vietnamese source has just leaked some photos of a dummy of Apple's new iPad Air, which we're currently dubbing the iPad Air 2. You'll notice that this tablet is significantly thinner, as the source claims that it's just 7mm thick when compared to ...

    After all the IFA launches last month, not to mention the headline-grabbing debut of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, you might have expected mobile device manufacturers to take a little break, gather their thoughts, and meditate on their strategies for dominating the holiday season. But no, oh no: we find ourselves smack-dab in the midst of another busy period of events. HTC's got its “double exposure” announcement later today, Sony has something to share with us tomorrow, and there's that Oppo N3 launch coming at the end of the month. But between this week's news and that N3 action, there's ...
