Cyanogen Inc. Gets A Cash Infusion From Foxconn

It's not cheap to take Android away from Google, nor is it an inexpensive proposition to put a bullet through Google's head. So it should come as no surprise that Cyanogen Inc. is on the lookout for investment partners. The latest company to throw in with the Android software maker is Foxconn. Yes, that Foxconn.

Android One Is Coming To Turkey, And It's Packing A Pretty Decent Phone

Android One is on its way to Turkey. Today Google announced that it is partnering with General Mobile to bring out a faux-leather phone packed with stock Android and better specs than you would expect from Google's effort to grace the world with decent low-cost devices.

The General Mobile handset eschews low-res screens for a more impressive 5-inch HD display. Rather than a Mediatek processor, on the inside there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410.

[Bug Watch] Android 5.1 Devices Show The Text String '@17041057' In Notifications With More Than 7 Items

Android is a complex, multifaceted beast with a lot of moving parts that can break. In the grand scheme of things, this bug isn't a huge deal. It doesn't affect functionality, but it sure is annoying. Here's the deal: get an expanded notification with more than 7 elements on Android 5.1, and you'll probably see a line at the bottom that says, "@17041057."

MediaTek Announces Helio X20, A New Deca-Core Mobile SoC With 'Tri-Cluster' Architecture

MediaTek may not be the first name that comes to mind when talking about CPU innovation, but that doesn't stop the company from doing its best to try and change the game with interesting designs and new takes on existing tech. Today, it announced a new mobile SoC that is unlike anything I've personally heard of before: a deca-core processor with the company's own design that it calls "Tri-Cluster" technology.

This new chip is called the Helio X20, and it actually seems pretty interesting in design.

PlaceIt Creates Realistic Videos Of People Interacting With Any App In Minutes, A Great Marketing Resource For Independent Developers

These days, it takes much more to sell an app. It used to be good enough to build something that simply did what it was supposed to and didn't crash too often. Over time, users came to expect better performance, lower power consumption, and an attractive interface. Even those things aren't always good enough because many apps are presented with high quality demo videos. How can independent developers and small teams compete with companies that can pay for high-end shoots and professional models?

[International Giveaway] Win An HTC M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, Or Galaxy S6 Edge With Skins From Android Police And dbrand

When it comes to device skins, dbrand is my go-to company. After going hands-on with some of the company's Nexus 6 offerings back in February, I was extremely impressed with the quality - both materials and precision cutouts. I highly recommend checking them out if you're interested in giving your gadgets a new look. (And if you missed out on the Nexus "X" symbol promotion, well, I'm sorry.)

This contest is now over.

Just like on mobile, Android TV users turn to the Play Store to install new apps. An update has rolled out that bumps the software up to version 5.4.12. The most immediate difference is a tweaked look, as the interface now sports larger titles.

Verizon Wireless and AOL are about to become siblings. Verizon Communications (of which Verizon Wireless is a subsidiary) announced today that it is buying the latter for $4.4 billion. And no, it's not for the dial-up subscribers.

Love or hate it, Verizon offers the strongest mobile network in the US, and it's one of the top broadband providers. In a future where people will stream more and more of their media over the web to an increasingly diverse range of gadgets, Verizon clearly has a role to play.

The LG Watch Urbane Can't Connect To Wi-Fi Networks Channels Above 11, Update Coming Soon

Some early users of LG's Watch Urbane outside of the US were a bit perplexed when they tried to use the Android Wear device's Wi-Fi syncing feature. Apparently the current software build only enables Wi-Fi channels one through eleven - not coincidentally, the only ones legally accessible to consumer electronics in the United States. A long support thread on Google's Android Wear forum is full of new owners wondering why they can't connect to their local wireless networks.
