    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 ...

    We're just hours away from HTC's “double exposure” event, with the festivities getting underway at 4pm Eastern. We've heard plenty of theories about what hardware the manufacturer could be getting ready to introduce, but the one sure bet seems to be the HTC RE Camera. After all, HTC dropped a teaser video revealing that RE Camera name, and some poking around the corresponding RE Camera website revealed some imagery that appeared to be the camera accessory itself, a little snorkle-looking guy. As we get ready to see HTC make the RE Camera official, we've got one more last-minute leak to ...

    We're just hours away from HTC's next big event, but one of the company's most anticipated new products isn't one we expect to see at this “double exposure” gathering: the Nexus 9 tablet. Evidence for the tablet's existence has been arriving at unprecedented level in recent weeks, most recently as a picture of the slate itself leaked. But for all we have managed to see, the tablet has remained an unconfirmed rumor. That may finally be changing, as we hear a report that an HTC exec has supposedly verified the manufacturer's plans for the Nexus 9. HTC's Jack Tong, president of HTC North ...

    The rise of smartphones and tablets may have brought powerful computing to more users than ever before, placed a new focus on software usability, and is leading us into an even more-connected future than anything we've known in the past. And while those are all largely positive evolutionary steps, not everything's been so rosy. The step away from windowed software to an everything-fullscreen UI has almost felt like turning back the clock thirty years, to the days of clunky hacks trying to shoehorn multitasking into DOS. But slowly, the idea of a multi-window mobile app environment seems to ...

    Apple is well known for testing all sorts of prototypes, well ahead of a possible launch of any. We've been seeing the design of the iPhone  6 leaked all over the place since the time of the iPhone 4s launch, even though it took the company 3 generations to make it possible. In the same fashion, we've been hearing about a possible 12.9-inch iPad in the works for a more professional crowd, and new rumors point to how Apple plans to pull it off. Supply chain sources claim that Apple is testing two 12.9-inch iPad models, both running different operating systems. On one, we have one iPad ...

    Google's next Nexus phone feels like it's so close we can almost touch it. Leaks of the Nexus 6 have been getting bigger and better in recent weeks, and as we approach the Nexus 5's first birthday, all eyes are on Google to see when it plans to go public with what's looking like it will be the first Nexus phablet. As smartphone fans know, one key step on the road to a handset's release is it getting its FCC certification – that's why so many eyes today are turning to a new set of FCC docs from Motorola. Are they really for the Nexus 6, though, or could there be another explanation. The ...

    Just yesterday we were checking out the latest leaks surrounding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy A-series, the descendents of the also-still-new Galaxy Alpha, and we had the opportunity to check out a new render of the Galaxy A5. At the time we noted that it sure seemed like this phone was getting ready to launch in the near future, and today we're picking up a better sense of just when that might be, with a new source talking about A5 availability, as well as some A7 hardware specs. Supposedly, Samsung is planning to announce the Galaxy A5 (and, we assume, the A3 and A7) sometime later this ...

    Android Wear as a platform may still be in its infancy, but it's already attracting a growing number of interested manufacturers. From those early days of LG and Motorola we've already seen Samsung hop on board, and IFA last month brought ASUS into the fold with its ZenWatch. We were optimistic that the ZenWatch would become the extreme budget-priced alternative to $200+ Android Wear models, but pricing info available at launch didn't really seem to back that up. Would the situation change before sales of the watch began? We're finding ourselves cautiously optimistic as we pick up some new ...

    It's hardly a surprise that Samsung is hard at work at yet another phone, but we're always excited to see every last one of the devices the OEM puts out. The latest looks to be a continuation of the Galaxy Alpha line of metal-trimmed smartphones, the Galaxy A5. We just saw press renders leak of it earlier today, and now we have our hands all over a Samsung Galaxy A5 benchmark, revealing a 64-bit processor and more. There's supposedly a 4.8-inch 720p display, contrary to what we heard earlier about a 5-inch screen. The benchmark also divulges the inclusion of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 ...
