Interestingly, the update is only rolling out to the unlocked model and AT&T’s variant is still running Fire OS 3.6.5.

A new rumor has spilled the beans on what could possibly be one of the most powerful tablets we’ve ever seen. Known as the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra, the tablet will apparently break cover next year sporting a gargantuan hardware specs sheet. If this report from a Chinese site is to be believed, the tablet will pack a whopping 12.9 inch display sporting an insane resolution of 3840 x 2400 pixels, which is more than what we’ve seen on any device this size. The tablet is also expected to be packing an octa core Snapdragon...

With Google Glass yet to go mainstream, Sony has decided to show something of its own. Known as the Single Lens Display Module, the device looks pretty identical to Glass in terms of design. The hardware underneath isn’t too different from Google’s offering either, so there are barely any surprises here.

It is...

The executive failed to provide hardware details on this upcoming Android One handset, but needless to say it will follow the same principles as the first...

The carrier has just been imposed a massive penalty of $105 million by the FCC for billing customers towards services like text messages, horoscopes and ringtones. Interestingly, AT&T was found guilty of something similar back in October and had to pay the same amount in fines. If this penalty is approved, all the customers who have complained against Sprint’s malpractice will be reimbursed the damages. This still requires...

Other changes included in the update are the ability to make 911 emergency calls even without a SIM card on the device. There are the usual range of bug fixes in tow as well. The ability to make voice calls using the 4G LTE network is certainly a noteworthy addition, assuming you have support for the feature in your region. The update...
