Exclusive: Google Will Soon Introduce 'Nearby' To Let Other 'People, Places, And Things' Know When You're Around

A couple of months ago, we posted one of our early Google Search/Now rumors, and it was something of a long range rumor compared to others. While things like parking reminders, proper timer management, and bill pay reminders have already seen their public release, the ability to set contact-based reminders ("remind me when I'm with this person"), hasn't come forward yet. But it will likely appear very soon with a new feature in Android called Nearby, which will allow new interactions between you and nearby people, places, and things.

[Deal Alert] Get A Refurbished Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 For $284.99 From Groupon (Down From $399.99)

So you want an 8-inch Galaxy Tab Pro, but you don't want to spend $399.99 on one? I hear you. $399.99 isn't all that expensive as far as tech purchases go, but tablets are increasingly affordable these days, and you can get two Nexus 7s for that price. I can't hook you up with a 16GB Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 for the same as a Nexus, but I can point you in the direction of one that's going for over $100 off its usual price (and $50 less than what Amazon's reduced it to).

Samsung is all set to unveil a new set of Galaxy Tab S AMOLED tablets at its Galaxy Premiere event on June 12th, but more images have already leaked ahead of the big Madison Square Gardens unveiling.

The button placement, the shape of the camera, and the perforated texture on the back all look familiar.

Samsung And AT&T Resume Rollout Of Android 4.4.2 For The Galaxy S4 Active After 6 Week Hiatus

Back in April, owners of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active were treated to the ultimate tease when an update to Android 4.4 KitKat began rolling out, only to be put on hold a few days later. The only explanation was a claim that AT&T and Samsung were "looking into potential improvements." It looks like the time has come -again- for the S4 Active to make the jump to KitKat.

QuickPic Image Viewer Gets A Beta Testing Community, New APK Ready For Download

Each smartphone comes with a gallery app, but considering how diverse the Android smartphone landscape is, the one you end up with varies from device to device. If you want an identical experience across devices, the best approach may be to turn to a third-party app, and while you're at it, you might as well choose one that's spiffy and straightforward. QuickPic is one of our top picks in this area, and now the app's developer has opened up a beta community for testers and dropped a new beta release for them to get their hands on.

[Update: Winners] Win One Of Six Karma Portable Hotspots With 1GB Of Data From Karma And Android Police

How many times have you been out 'n about and needed a Wi-Fi signal for some reason? That has happened to me more times than I care to count, and whipping out the phone to start up a tether isn't always ideal (not to mention that it burns through carrier-provided data pretty quickly). Enter Karma, a new service that wants to provide everyone with internet, everywhere they go.
