As expected, the AT&T branded HTC Desire 610 is available starting today. Much like the smartphone’s overseas pricing, AT&T is only asking for $199.99 off contract or $0.99 if you’re willing to sign a two year agreement. The smartphone is 4G LTE capable and is easily one of the best budget offerings going around. For the price, you’re getting a 4.7 inch 960 x 540 resolution display, an 8-megapixel camera on the back, a 1.2 GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and...

The wait is finally over for Amazon’s Fire Phone to reach customers’ hands as AT&T has finally begun sales of the online retailer’s first smartphone. The pricing is a little steep and starts from $199.99 with a 2-year contract, which might not appeal to a lot of customers out there. If you’re looking to pick the device up without  a contract, you will have to shell out $649, which is still quite a lot for a phone of this caliber. The Fire Phone is built entirely on top of Amazon’s ecosystem, so if you’re...

With the Explorer Edition Google Glass already available in the market, it is only natural for others to follow suit. What we’re seeing now is coming from Chinese manufacturer Lenovo with the finished product expected to hit the markets by October. The company is also expecting to team up with hardware partners who are interested in offering help with wearables like these. So in that sense, Lenovo’s approach to the wearables segment is quite different from Google’s. As you can see, Lenovo hasn’t really put too...

The Moto X+1 appears to be nearing launch with leaks increasing in frequency. And a series of new images sent to the folks over at Android Police has revealed what could possibly be an early pre production prototype of the handset. It’s clear that Motorola has drastically changed the design from the Moto X with the aluminum chassis being used in favor of plastic. The rest appears to be the same as the predecessor, including the custom wooden back panel. It is said that Motorola will also have leather options this time around. Interestingly,...

Google has been believed to be in talks with Twitch for a potential acquisition/merger with YouTube. But over the couple of months, reports of the acquisition died down somewhat. However, multiple reports are now confirming that Google has almost finished talks with Twitch and the two parties have reportedly agreed on a sum of $1 billion. This comes after Google denied these rumors a few months ago, so it has certainly taken us by surprise. Twitch is a widely used video streaming service allowing users to broadcast live content and...

Motorola has just announced its Back to School promo on the Moto X, with the smartphone getting a discount of up to $125 on the 32 and 64GB model while the 16GB variant is getting a flat $100 discount, effectively bringing the price under $300. The deal should be applicable until July 31, assuming the stocks don’t run out by then. The 16GB Moto X now costs $299.99, the 32GB variant is priced at $324.99 while the 64GB model will set you back by $374.99. It’s quite a massive discount on the smartphone, even though it’s...

Samsung has been rumored to be working on a head-mounted wearable known as the Gear VR for quite some time now. Today, we have our first slice of evidence to prove that the device indeed exists. This comes thanks to a couple of leaked screenshots from an app known as the Samsung Gear VR, which appears to be a companion app for the wearable. It’s quite evident from the screenshots that this is indeed an Oculus Rift like offering which covers both eyes and not a Google Glass competitor as initially expected. Sony is also working on...

We know that the Moto 360 can do a lot of things, but did you know that it also packs an ambient light sensor? While it’s not as eye catching as some of its other features, the availability of an ambient light sensor could roughly translate to improved screen visibility and considerably better battery life. The light sensor adjusts the brightness of the display based on the surroundings, which is something that the current crop of Android Wear smartwatches cannot do. This is certainly going to be a crucial feature on the smartwatch,...
