Several app developers have already ported their applications to work with Android Wear smartwatches. Bitdefender has just joined that list with its dedicated Android Wear app which lets users control and sound alarms on their primary smartphone in times of an emergency. As a precautionary measure, the smartwatch will start vibrating whenever the paired device is taken away from its proximity.

This device wraps around the user’s wrist as you can see above, with a microUSB (or Apple Lightning) plug on one end slotting...

Motorola is already expected to launch two new smartphones on the 4th of September. And it seems like the company has six more smartphones to show off before the end of 2014, including the Moto X+1 and the Nexus 6 a.k.a Shamu. The report mentions the possible launch of three new Verizon bound smartphones known as Droid, Droid Maxx and the Droid Turbo. It is likely that these devices will reach AT&T’s shelves as well, albeit with a different brand name. We’re not sure how different the Droid Turbo will be compared to the...

Chinese certification database, TENAA has been notoriously popular for leaking out devices ahead of their scheduled launch date.

And much to our disappointment, the smartphone is revealed to be packing a near identical specs sheet as the Xperia Z2, with the only difference being the CPU clock speed which is bumped to 2.5 GHz instead of 2.3 GHz, while retaining the...

Only a few days after Sprint announced its revised family plans, T-Mobile has launched something of its own in a bid to take down the competition. The carrier is offering free LTE data for over an year to customers who switch over to T-Mobile from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. Existing customers will have to add a lifeline to their account and both customers will get these data benefits. For those who are already on the unlimited data plans, the carrier will offer a credit of $10 on the monthly bill for an year. You can find the complete...

Let’s face it, we all own multiple micro USB compatible devices but face the trouble of charging it simultaneously. This job is particularly hard when there’s only one wall charger near your bed or in the usual charging place. Samsung’s new offering pledges to solve this particular issue by allowing customers to charge three devices at a time using just one wall adapter. Accessories like these are available aplenty online, but a solution coming directly from Samsung is bound to have more of an impact on the consumers....
