Huawei has just dropped a bomb on the American customers of the Ascend Mate 2 that the smartphone will not receive the Android 4.4 update. The device was launched back in June in the U.S. sporting Android 4.3 and the Emotion UI. But the company details in its blog post that the smartphone will not see the update to what is now the next best version of Android. Strangely, the smartphone has seen the update in other parts of the world, so this is clearly hard to fathom for the customers. Since the device is offered without a contract, the...

Samsung has just posted the financial earnings report for the third quarter of 2014, showing a massive revenue decline in the mobile segment.

The company posted 4.2 trillion Won ($4 billion) in profits and operating income of 1.75 trillion Won ($1.66 billion) during Q3, which is the...

Motorola has just announced that it is now formally a part of the Lenovo family as the $2.91 billion acquisition which was initiated last year is now complete. This officially takes Motorola off Google’s hands, although we don’t expect much to change in the near future as far as devices are concerned. Lenovo has made it very clear that the company shares similar ambitions and will ensure that Motorola continues its run in the months to come. This in turn means that the range of Droid devices and other stock Android offerings...

Amazon has just listed the Champagne gold variant of the Moto 360 smartwatch sporting a metal strap along with the dark metal and natural metal models. The company was expected to launch the metal band Moto 360 before the end of 2014, but there was no mention of a gold colored version, which has taken us all by surprise.
