While other smart watches have come to market since its campaign, the Pebble is arguably the first to get mass adoption. And it’s the only watch that works cross-platform. And while Pebble doesn’t have any new hardware yet (that we know of), they are updating the software with a lot of improvements with version 2.5 today. The first improvement is that emojis can now be viewed on the Pebble’s screen, fixing the issue of the square boxes being there instead. There is also a new Compass app that can be downloaded...

Welcome to the third part in our series of troubleshooting articles dedicated to the Sony Xperia Z1. As you may have noticed it has been quite some time since the last part was published. This is due to the fact that we have been concentrating mostly on Samsung devices as this is the bulk of the emails that we receive. Today is different as we will be answering the latest emails sent to us by our readers regarding their Z1. If you own an Xperia Z1 or any other Android device for that matter feel free to email us at [email protected]...

A new report is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy S5 will start getting the Android L update in late November or early December. This “insider” info could be accurate considering that Android L is expected to be released sometime in October, possibly in coordination with the expected Nexus 9 launch next month, so this seems to fit in very nicely. However, considering how slow carriers usually are with updates, it could take a little longer for them to roll out the update. So it is likely that this...

Just as the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 makes its way to the shelves of major American carriers, a new deal on eBay has popped up carrying the device at a discounted price. The refurbished model of Samsung’s 10.5 inch AMOLED tablet is selling for just $399.99 which is a $100 discount on the regular asking price. The device also comes with 1 year of warranty, which is quite rare for a refurbished unit. Bear in mind, this version of the tablet carries the Exynos 5 Octa chipset, so there’s no LTE support on offer. The storage is 16GB,...

America’s largest carrier Verizon has just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The tablet was announced by AT&T just yesterday, so the timing couldn’t have been better from Big Red. But unlike AT&T, Verizon is only selling the 10.5 inch model, with no word on the 8.4 inch variant as of yet. As far as the pricing is concerned, customers should be looking to shell out $599.99 without a contract or $499.99 with a two year agreement from the carrier. Verizon specifies that the tablet will come with support for...

A new teaser posted by Droid Landing on Twitter suggests that Motorola and Verizon will be launching a new Droid smartphone as soon as next month. And unlike last year when the company launched a trio of Droid handsets, this time the company will only focus on one handset. So this handset will probably be similar to the Moto X, but with a few added carrier bloatware and some other features such as a Kevlar back pattern and a slightly changed design. Interestingly, the device is expected to be packing a large battery inside combined...

Makers of the OnePlus One have announced that the pre-orders for the handset will go live starting next month. While giving out the news, the company has also claimed that the initial invite only system was a “blessing”. We’re not sure why the company chose to use that particular word given that the invite system was nothing short of dismal. Pre-orders of the OnePlus One essentially means that customers will be allowed to place an order for the smartphone at a specified window and if the device is in stock, the manufacturer...
