Project Ara stirred up plenty of excitement when it was first announced, and it continues to entice people with its promise of a modular and upgradeable phone. We recently learned that users will be able to hot-swap modules (excluding the CPU and screen) while the device is on thanks to a modified version of Android Lollipop.
Now Phonebloks has shared a video of Ara's porgress at NK Labs, a Massachusetts-based contractor doing a great deal of work on the project.
There aren't a lot of options for big tablets with styluses, so the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is kind of the automatic winner. The only problem is it's so darn expensive. Well, unless you're down with a refurb. You can pick one of those up on eBay right now for the reasonable price of $389.99.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has a 2560x1600 LCD screen with support for the pressure-sensitive S Pen.
Google's Inbox implements a really smart management paradigm - specifically, users can swipe in one direction to "snooze" a message (designating a time at which the message will reappear in the inbox), or swipe the other way to mark the message "done," essentially archiving it. Steve Albright, in a post to Google+, recently opined that this paradigm might find a good home among all of Android's notifications, rather than being confined to Inbox messages.
Sprint Spark is the carrier's attempt to make its LTE speeds competitive with its rivals, but it's only available in a select number of markets. Today Sprint has announced an expansion into seventeen new cities.
The largest metropolitan areas on this list spread from the West Coast to the Great Lakes. In Washington and California we see Seattle and Sacramento respectively. In Ohio alone there are six markets, including Cleveland and Columbus.
The new DROID Turbo for Verizon is a beast of a phone, but Motorola isn't letting it stand alone. The company also announced a proprietary see-through case for the device, with the somewhat benign name "Droid Turbo Flip Case." It's a pretty standard full-body flip case offered in either leather or nylon, but it includes a screen cutout and a transparent cover that lets you view the phone's active notifications, or even answer a call or take a photo, without opening the case.
This summer Telltale Games brought The Wolf Among Us to Android, a game based on the Fables comic book series from Bill Willingham and DC Comics. There was a catch--the game was only available via the Amazon Appstore. It wasn't a Kindle Fire exclusive or anything, but many Android users don't particularly want to deal with the Appstore for content, even if this means missing out on whatever piece of software is currently the Free App of the Day.
Well son, time is but an illusion of change
Yesterday you had a tiny phone with Snake
Today you're overcome by a desire so strange
To buy the biggest phablet Motorola can make.
Time comes, flies, runs out, it's an elusive affair
Don't waste it by constantly checking the clock
Free yourself from it, put a blank screen on your Wear
It's always noon somewhere, Paris, Rio, or Bangkok.
One smart dev sensed the deceptive nature of time
He made a watch face so black it seemed like Void
So before I trip on a word that doesn't rhyme
I'll advise you to instantly download it on your droid.
