It's really only been a few months since Android Wear officially launched, but already it feels like we've been waiting ages for certain features. The wait, it appears, is almost over. In the second part of Phandroid's Android Wear leak, we get a look at what's coming in the Android 5.0 build for Wear, and it's basically addressing everything we've been complaining about.
Sometimes late nights lead to interesting tips finding their way into our inbox. Tonight was just such a night. If you've been waiting to get a taste of Lollipop on your Nexus 7 2012, you're in luck. We just happen to have signed factory images for Google's original 7" tablet. The build is LRX21P, which lines up with builds we've seen on the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player (LRX21L and LRX21M respectively).
Less than a week ago, we received word that Motorola had already started its soak test for an over-the-air update bringing Lollipop to the Moto X 2014 Pure Edition. With this news, there's a good chance the phone will get Android 5.0 before Nexus devices (not counting the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, which ship with the software). Now a tipster has come to us saying that the company has begun a test for this year's Moto G as well.
Sony is releasing flagship smartphones at a furious pace. Barely six months after the Xperia Z2 was announced, the Z3 is already here. If you don't need to have the absolute latest and greatest, there's a good deal on the Z2 today. Just $399.99 gets you a new unlocked device compatible with US LTE bands.
The power's out. This road trip will never end. Camping, again? Fine.
Whatever the reason, sometimes you just need extra power when there's no outlet in sight. In those instances, you're going to want the biggest, fattest external battery pack you can find. And if you have to share it, or you have multiple devices, then you're going to want something with more than one USB port.
If you head over to StackSocial and happen to live in the US, you can currently get a Limefuel LP200X battery pack with a whopping 20,000mAh of juice.
When Amazon entered the tablet game with the original Kindle Fire, we all kind of chuckled at the idea of it being a reasonable entry into the market. With each iteration, though, those silly Fire tablets have gotten more and more powerful, and each edition of Fire OS has brought new features that proved to actually be useful. While Fire Phone may have been a flop, the Fire tablets are still very much alive, and the newest editions are better than ever.
