Despite attempts to the contrary, the smartwatch industry has slowed. Surprisingly, it's been the luxury brands that have kept Android Wear alive well into 2017. Some of their efforts have been disappointing, but that hasn't stopped Louis Vuitton from tossing its hat into the ring. This is the Tambour Horizon, a smartwatch whose price starts at the paltry sum of $2,450. Read More
Lenovo is having a rough time lately staying on top of its demanding user base, especially those that associate it with Motorola still and hold it to a higher standard than most brands. And it's not like the company is doing itself any favors with colossal snafus like that APPShot that we reported on a few months ago. (If you missed that post, I recommend you read it for the lulz.) Now the company is back with another new app on the Play Store, Theme Center. Fortunately, the description and screenshots aren't as criminally bad as APPShot, but unfortunately, the result is still the same with thousands of 1-star ratings and dissatisfied users. Read More
The New York Times website exists in 3 language flavors: English, Spanish, and Chinese, and now the latter is graduating to also become a standalone Android app. You may be wondering why a website that's blocked in China would release an app on an app store that's also not legally available in China, but you'd be forgetting that Chinese is the most spoken language in the world, with native speakers in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, and plenty of Southeast Asian countries, not to count all the Chinese immigrants around the world. Plus those inside Mainland China who use proxies to access restricted content. Read More

The LG V30 will be the South Korean company's second flagship phone of 2017, after the G6, when it's launched later in the year. The last two of iterations have included a secondary display and an even heftier price tag than the G series. Thanks to OnLeaks and his latest collaboration we now know what it's probably going to look like. These renders are produced using supposed factory CADs and should be pretty accurate, barring any last minute design changes. Read More
The 30-hour event known as Prime Day has officially kicked off, and we have a list of ten Android phones, tablets, and Chromebooks that will be included at different times during the sale. For the uninitiated, the sales on Prime Day are staggered, the better to consistently pull your attention throughout the day. So most of the items that will be included haven't yet gone on sale. But, worry not, as with this list you'll be prepared. Read More
After it leaked earlier today, LG has officially announced the new Q family of devices. To kick things off, the Korean manufacturer pulled the wraps off the Q6+, Q6, and Q6α. The focus behind this new series is to offer some of LG's flagship-level features at a more affordable price point. Read More
Huawei and Honor mostly sneak under the radar here in the United States, but they still make some solid Android devices. The Honor 6X already appeared on sale as part of Amazon's Prime Day, but a few other devices from Huawei are discounted too. Read More
The prices for the unlocked dual-SIM Galaxy S8 and S8+ just keep dropping.

The same seller from that Deal Alert is back again, this time with even lower prices for both phones. You can get the S8 for $579.99 ($145 off) or the larger S8+ for $665.99 ($159 off). Read More

Today's roundup is presented by Keybee Keyboard, from Papalia Marco. Typing with a touchscreen keyboard can often be a task in frustration.
