That’s certainly disappointing, given 5.0 source code was freely disseminated back in early November 2014 and Android M’s “final” release is a few months away, tops. Ecosystem fragmentation clearly remains an issue, nay scourge in dire need of a universal cure. But alas, there’s no such thing. The best we can do to...

However, it seems like the company could soon have its own tablet as well with the ZenPad 8 leaking out in new 4:3 press renders. The press render also tells us that the smartphone is running on an Intel ATOM processor, which could mean that performance will be a highlight of this tablet. The range of ASUS ZenFone smartphones are also running Intel processors, so this barely comes across as a surprise. As for the...

It’s fascinating to finally come across a device from...
