Carl Pei, Director of OnePlus Global was part of a Reddit AMA (Ask me Anything) earlier today where he revealed the company’s plans to launch the OnePlus 2. This will act as the successor to the OnePlus One which is yet to be launched on a large scale. He reiterated that the current flagship will still be up for grabs going into 2015 with pre-orders expected to begin soon. He didn’t share much information on the OnePlus 2, but subtly indicated that the company might be considering a smaller display. This is barely any confirmation,...

Amazon’s range of Kindle Fire tablets will now be known as just Fire tablets in a bid to unify the device with the Fire TV and the Fire Phone. Since the first Kindle Fire tablet was launched, there has been some confusion among the customers over the company’s standalone eBook readers and Android tablets. This move will ensure that the Kindle moniker will be reserved for the company’s eBook readers and not every handheld device that it launches. The company only recently launched a new range of Fire tablets including...

Makers of the OnePlus One have announced the arrival of a new headphone line called Silver Bullet. With a price tag of just $14.99, these headphones are well worth your dime and come with three physical buttons to answer/reject calls, increase or decrease volume and even take images from the camera. This feature could be limited to the OnePlus One as it might require software support on the handset. The headphones will be up for grabs starting next week in the U.S., Canada, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria,...

Microsoft has just announced the Wireless Display Adapter, which sounds pretty plain at first, but is essentially a competitor to the Google Chromecast. This connects to devices using the Miracast technology, so it is imperative that your smartphone, tablet, notebook and television/projector has support for this particular feature. This is perhaps the only distinguishing factor from the Google Chromecast as far as functionality is concerned. Barring this, customers can use the Wireless Display Adapter to mirror a wide range of content...

Amazon has taken great strides over the past few years. Going from an e-commerce retailer to a manufacturer with its Kindle e-book readers and subsequently the Kindle Fire tablets and the Fire Phone recently, the company has certainly come a long way over the years. A new report is now hinting that the retailer is looking to join the wearables segment as well with a possible Google Glass like offering. The company is also believed to be working on a home automation based WiFi device which would stick to your closet or door and let you...

  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...

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...

The makers of the OnePlus One have run into some fresh trouble as they have called off the StyleSwap covers meant for the handset. The company reportedly found a few issues with the mass production of these cases, which is why they have decided to call off the sales of the cases before they even reached customers’ hands. The company has been facing trouble keeping up with the demand for the handset as it is and this news will act as a major setback as well. There is a silver lining for hopeful fans though. OnePlus has reportedly...
