For a limited time, the LG G Watch R is only $269.99 on Groupon. This is a very good deal on the circular smart watch, as it normally retails for $299.99. With the elegant design, good performance, and solid battery life, this is a good watch to get unless you are waiting for a newer Android Wear watch, such as the LG Watch Urbane or the Huawei Watch. This deal runs for a little over a week, so if you want to take advantage of it, you should act fast.

All of the Nexus devices had this feature enabled, but other devices receiving software updates are not being encrypted by default. With this change, it seems that Google is holding off on this requirement for the next version of Android. Between the original announcement of Lollipop last fall and Google’s release of the hardware requirements...

It’s Mobile World Congress this week, and between all the new device announcements, Google’s Sundar Pichai has confirmed that Google is indeed working on a cellular network.

Google Play Store has turned three today, and to commemorate the third anniversary, Google has decided to offer 33 apps, movies and books on discounts. Only some of them are free, while others have received significant price reductions.

While some of them are as cheap as $0.10, some titles will set you back by $2.99. But overall, there’s a lot of money...

Google issues Android version distribution figures every month to give us a better idea on where each version of Android stands as far as marketshare is concerned. And there’s good news all around from this month’s figures as Android 5.0 Lollipop has more than doubled its marketshare, bringing the total tally to 3.3%. This after Lollipop barely made it to the chart a couple of months ago. Android 5.0 was at 1.6% the same time last month, which means Lollipop has grown significantly over a 30 day period. The other good news...
