A bit of new information out of @evleaks points to possible specs for the still unannounced Sony Xperia Tablet Z2. The first one was a big departure for Sony's past tablet designs, but it was also a good device. If the leaked specs are to be believed, the sequel is going to be a lot like the first one – a little too much like it, perhaps.
LG's flagship tablet (and currently the company's only one) is certainly making headlines today. Just this morning we saw an impressive $100 off deal for the WiFi version, and now it looks like there's a carrier variant in the works. The reliable Evleaks posted photos of a G Pad 8.3 with Verizon's telltale branding, indicating that the tablet will be coming to Big Red sometime in the future.

Now that Samsung's Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is no longer laughable because of its anachronistic gadget name, Verizon has decided to make it laughable with the carrier's standard enormously narcissistic branding. Go-to gadget leak guy Evleaks posted a press shot of the upcoming carrier version of the 10-inch tablet.

It's not overly surprising that Verizon would want its own version of the new Note 10.1, since they offered the original model in an LTE flavor last year.
There are two ways to make a "mini" phone these days. The first is typified by Samsung and HTC, who have made Mini versions of the Galaxy SIII, S4, and HTC One with lower specs to match the physically smaller size. The second way is to make smaller phones that still strive to be the technical equal of their larger stablemates, like the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and the Motorola DROID Mini.
Always a reliable source of exciting info not yet intended for public consumption, @evleaks has just tweeted a screenshot labeled plainly "M8," the implication being that we're looking at a screenshot from HTC's yet-unnamed flagship phone. The screenshot looks pretty sharp, featuring white iconography on KitKat-style translucent system bars, and familiar HTC-flavored launcher icons.
Samsung's latest and greatest (read: largest) tablets are about to hit the streets, and the noted leaker @evleaks has gotten a peek at the Verizon-branded version of the NotePRO. Before you know it, you'll be taking out a second mortgage on your home to pick up this beaut.

With the exception of the gigantic LTE logo, this tablet looks more or less like the WiFi device which will be sold for $750-850.
The Red Nexus 5 began as a rumor, but things started to appear concrete when our eyes landed on a pic of Sprint's internal documentation informing workers that the device was going to land on Google Play February 4th. Now @evleaks has shared what looks like a pretty believable press shot.
The incomparable @evleaks has offered up another look at Samsung's alleged UI experimentation, this time showing what would appear to be predictive search or information cards, similar to those offered by Google Now. Split into two parts, the collection shows everything from home temperature automation to exercise tracking to flight info, package tracking, appointments, and plenty more.
What differentiates the cards from Google's own service (design aside) is apparent social integration beyond birthdays and commutes.
Nokia's rumored Android phone, the Normandy, has popped up a few times in leaked pics, but we've never seen the UI until now. In the newest images, the Android interface designed by Nokia is on display for all to see.

Samsung devices are selling like gangbusters, and while this could be taken as a sign that many people are fine with TouchWiz as it is, that hasn't stopped a flood of critics (including us, on occasion) from lambasting the company's sense of design. Either the icons are too childish, the interface is overly cluttered, or it just feels bloated. The interface hasn't had a makeover in quite some time, but the latest image shared by @evleaks suggests that things may be about to change.
