We’ve seen Android Wear smartwatches from LG, Samsung as well as Motorola so far. And today, we’re getting our first look at what could possibly be the HTC made Android Wear smartwatch. Renowned leakster Evleaks has received an artistic rendering of the alleged HTC smartwatch, complete with metal straps and everything, suggesting that another Moto 360 like offering could be in the making. The key difference however, is the shape which is more in line with the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live and not circular like the...

In its current form, the Google Play Store categorizes apps based on free or paid. However, what these listings fail to mention is the fact that most of those free apps don’t mention in-app purchases. While they’re free to download, these games usually don’t let the users go along too far in the gameplay without making an in-app purchase. It seems like this has finally hit Google as it will stop listing such apps as “free” in the Play Store. This comes after EU regulators pushed Google to make these changes....

Chinese manufacturer ZTE has seemingly had enough of custom skins and the time it takes to develop. Starting with its upcoming Android devices, the company has decided to use the Google Experience Launcher or Google Now Launcher. This should make updating of devices much easier and more streamlined compared to how it is now. It will also give users quick and easy access to Google Now, which is the premier information hub on Android. ZTE has mentioned that the first smartphone to use the said launcher will be the Blade Vec 4G. The smartphone...

Only yesterday did we talk about Amazon’s unlimited Kindle service with the web page going up ahead of schedule. And today, the retailer has officially launched the service dubbed as Kindle Unlimited with a goal of providing unlimited number of eBooks and audiobooks (via Audible). The service will only set you back by $9.99 per month, which is perhaps the highlight of this feature. To get customers started with the service, Amazon also has a 30-day free trial service, much like the recently launched Prime Music service. Although...

Well, that sure didn’t take long. The bizarre Nokia X, technically built on an underlying layer of Android code but really made to resemble a Windows Phone on the software front without actually running WP, is merely four months old. Five, if we count the timing of its formal introduction rather than the commercial launch. Meanwhile, the slightly beefier but just as experimental X2, powered by a Nokia X platform 2.0 UI which might as well be called Windroid, is yet to be released. Both handhelds, plus the first-generation X+ and XL...

  According to Android Central, some users of the Moto X on Verizon are getting emails for a new soak test. Since Motorola recently said that their Android 4.4.4 upgrade is “well under way,” we can presume that this is most likely part of the soak test. If the soak test is successful, it’s presumable that Verizon and Motorola will push out the 4.4.4 update to all Moto X users. This comes after the release of a similar soak test of KitKat 4.4.4 for the Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini. If you’ve gotten an email...

We all know that Motorola is hard at work bringing the Moto X successor to the world. But a new leak from Hong Kong has revealed something for fans of Verizon’s Motorola DROID lineup. According to the source of the leak, what you see in the image above is a back casing of this upcoming DROID smartphone. It’s certainly got the makings of a Motorola device as the Kevlar pattern is quite prominent here. And it’s clearly not a device we’ve seen before, so it could very well be the real deal. Motorola launched the...
