Qualcomm Snapdragon

Last week, Qualcomm showed off Quick Charge 1.0, a technology that makes your phone charge more quickly, and that you may already have. Today, they've announced Quick Charge 2.0, and surprise of surprises, it charges your phone faster than Quick Charge 1.0!

Quick Charge 2.0 will allow your phone to juice up at rates up to 75% faster than a phone or tablet without the technology. The catch with the new version is that you'll need to have a device with a Snapdragon 800 processor...

If you missed the HTC One launch yesterday, you could just check our HTC One section and read up about the company's latest phone. Or, you could watch the entire unveiling in crisp 720p on YouTube, as recorded in London yesterday, with more Zoes and BlinkFeeds than you can shake a BoomSound at.

Alternatively, if you're short on time, just watch the 4:37 highlights video:

Here's a list of some of our coverage, as well, to give you the full One experience:

Until now, the visual interface of Google's Project Glass has basically been a mystery. And since Glass was announced, there has been one, basic question asked by nearly everyone regarding the project: How's it work?

Well, today Google posted a video montage of Project Glass in action, complete with an apparently functional user interface, and it is amazing. I'm not going to spoil it for you - just watch the clip.

nexusae0_HTC-One_3V_Black

Since my introduction to Android (a la Nexus One), I've owned three HTC devices. I've reviewed probably a half-dozen others. I liked some of them, and I disliked others. But generally, I consider myself an HTC fan, especially since the One X.

The new One phone sounds brilliant. Ron's early impressions are promising. The initial response at large seems to be that HTC is finally being bold in a way that's causing people to take notice, by taking risks.

The One is sporting a brand-new 4.7" 1080p LCD display, wrapped in an all-aluminum unibody housing that, I have to say, is genuinely striking - no other phone looks like this thing.

NVIDIA has officially unveiled its smartphone strategy with Tegra 4 this morning, and the star of the show is undoubtedly the new Tegra 4i platform - a low-cost, slightly down-market version of NVIDIA's Tegra 4 chip that was announced at CES in January. And don't worry - the standard Tegra 4 platform will be featured in 'superphones' as well, T4i is all about the low to middle range of the market.

PushBullet is a pretty clever but simple service that allows you to push text, links, files, and various other information from Chrome to your Android phone or tablet. Think of it like Chrome to Phone on steroids. We recently recovered the Android app's update to version 8, which allowed friends (other Google accounts) to push to your device.

Yesterday, the developer of PushBullet announced that an official API was being released, which should add all sorts of versatility to the already very-useful service.

The update brings much of the software functionality of the Note II, including multi-window mode, pop up video, and of course the many changes associated with Android 4.1 at large. The new software build number is JZO54K.

Commenters over at SamMobile are indicating the rollout has begun in Germany, which is quite typical of Samsung's OTA distribution practices.
