So we all know that the HTC One M9 is launching this Sunday on the 1st of March. But where can we watch it? Not to worry as the company has just announced that it will be hosting a livestream of the entire event, bringing us everything from its Barcelona event. The One M9 has been one of the most talked about handsets along with the Samsung Galaxy S6, so it’s quite obvious that a lot of users will be tuning in to watch what happens during the course of the event. The company has mentioned that there will be some surprises in store...

Amazon is now offering users a large number of paid apps for free, while slashing the pricing of a few others. A total of 365 apps are covered by this listing, 145 of them being free.

Available in the list are apps such as High Speed Race: Need for Asphalt Racing, Flappy Egg, VpnROOT – Lite etc. There’s no word on how long Amazon intends to run this promotion, so make sure you hurry before they return to their original...

Motorola already offers smartphone customization through the Moto Maker tool. The company will soon expand this to the Moto 360 smartwatch as well, letting customers select the color of their choice for the wrist bands. The current options for the Moto 360 are limited to something along the lines of Black/silver/champagne gold case with a leather or standard strap, so it’s quite limited. But this new move will finally allow customers to get their favorite smartwatch in the colors of their choice. Casing options will remain unchanged...

Motorola unveiled the second gen Moto E only yesterday. In announcing the device, the company also took a jibe at Apple’s infamous bendgate fiasco which received significant media coverage after the iPhone 6 Plus launch. In explaining the design of the new Moto E with LTE, Motorola said in its blog post yesterday – “The Moto E has a curved back, ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in your hand and not bend in your back pocket.” That last bit is a direct jab at the iPhone 6 Plus which was accused of bending...

Ubuntu Touch has been available for quite some time now. Canonical, the developers behind Ubuntu, have partnered with a number of manufacturers to show off the software on their devices. It seems like Chinese manufacturer Meizu will be the latest to join the list of companies to support Ubuntu. The company will reportedly show off the software on the MX4 flagship which was announced in September last year. The two companies have been believed to be working on the software for a long time now, so it was only a matter of time before Meizu...

While Apple makes more than Google does for app revenue, it seems Google is trying to make the Play Store better for developers. Now, just like on regular Google searches, there will be ads on the Play Store. As you can see, Google is clearly marking which apps when you search are being promoted, with the little Orange “Ad” icon. So far Google is only partnering with a limited number of ad companies to send the ads to a limited number of users. But soon it will probably roll out to everyone. Along with announcing the ads,...

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is coming. HTC’s One M9 as well. Plus, the already unveiled LG G Flex 2 is just about ready to see daylight stateside. And then you have a slew of mid-rangers on the horizon, like Sony’s Xperia M4 Aqua, HTC’s Desire 626 and 826, or LG’s Magna – Spirit – Leon – Joy quartet. Not to forget Motorola’s respectable entry-level Moto E 2015. What do these all have in common? Silky smooth, minimalistic, hopefully glitch-free pre-installed Android 5.0 Lollipop software. On the not so bright side, if you have...
