This is certainly one of the powerful handsets that we’ve...

Two new LG tablets have just surfaced at the FCC with different display sizes. The tablets listed here are known as the LG V700 and LG V400. While there’s not much info available from the listing, some hints give us an idea of what to expect.

The V400 on the other hand could be your run-of-the-mill 7 or 8 inch tablet as it has been listed in portrait orientation. There’s not much info available...

The company is expected to invest close to $1.9 billion in this new manufacturing...

So what’s the difference between the A1-840 and the A1-840 FHD? It appears that the latter...

Google’s Vic Gundotra has been instrumental in the success of Google+ by converting it from a barren wasteland of people to one of the thriving places on the internet.

But to our astonishment, he has now announced his departure from the company, with Google confirming that this move will take effect immediately. It’s not clear if Gundotra has left the company to...
