The Samsung Gear Circle stereo Bluetooth headset has finally gone official in the U.S. and will be available via T-Mobile soon while AT&T, Best Buy, Amazon and Samsung’s online store will be getting it later this month. Pricing details haven’t been disclosed in the company’s press release, but Amazon has the Korean version of the headset listed for nearly $130, so we’re expecting this to cost somewhere near that price range. Best Buy will reportedly have an exclusive on the white version of the Gear Circle...

Right on cue, the Moto Maxx has gone official in Brazil today with the handset also expected to arrive in Mexico and Latin American markets as well. Customers in Brazil will be able to get the smartphone right away for 2199 Brazilian Real which is approximately $872.

With the Nexus 9 just beginning to reach customers’ hands, developers have already figured out a way to gain root access on the device. This particular mod comes from the reliable Chainfire who is renowned in the dev community for pulling off several such feats. Google made the Android 5.0 source code available not too long ago, so getting root access on your new Nexus 9 might not exactly be straight forward. But given the pace at which the developer community moves, it won’t be long till developers come up with an easier...

Samsung traditionally offers a multitude of free apps and services along with the purchase of Galaxy flagships. Known as the Galaxy Gifts, this promotion is also extending to the Galaxy Note 4 which has only recently started hitting the markets. Noticeably, Samsung is offering most of the freebies that were provided with the Galaxy S5 back in March. This includes free subscriptions to the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Bloomberg Businessweek+, Audible etc. The content will be accessible separately and will not be supplied with the device,...

Google introduced a feature with Android 4.4 KitKat which restricted apps from accessing other folders on the microSD card. This created quite an uproar in the developer community, especially from developers of file explorer apps who ultimately had to find ways to bypass this restriction. But these days will soon be behind us according to a release issued by Google. Starting with Android 5.0, Google will apparently lift these restrictions thus giving applications easy access to read and write content on the entirety of the SD card rather...

With the major changes Android Lollipop brings to Google’s mobile operating system, it’s no wonder that Android users have been clamoring for the update to hit their devices.

HTC has expressed interest in launching high end tablets starting in 2015, as the company’s profit margins appear to be diminishing with each quarter. HTC North Asia President, Jack Tong said during a launch event in Taiwan that they’re not planning on launching a budget tablet anytime soon as the profit margins are relatively low with those devices. If the Nexus 9 is any indication, we can expect more tablets from HTC in the future serving the premium niche. Given the dismal time the company is having, it makes sense for...

After AT&T announced plans to launch the Moto 360 smartwatch this Friday, T-Mobile too has confirmed the launch of the smartwatch, but five days later on the 12th of November. Customers will not have the option to pair the Moto 360 with the new Moto X as T-Mobile is yet to launch the smartphone on its network. AT&T on the other hand will offer a $50 discount on the Moto 360 when paired with the new Moto X. The pricing will most likely remain $249.99 for the Moto 360, although we’re hoping to see some discounts to make...
