Google recently dropped the price of the Project Tango developer tablet to $512, but there was no new hardware announced at I/O. Qualcomm just can't contain itself any longer, apparently.

Sony has just announced the follow-up to its flagship device, the... why does it feel like I've written this story before? Oh, because I have.

[Update: It's Back] Deal Alert - Pick Up An 18W Qualcomm Certified Quick Charge 2.0 Charger For Just 11 Bucks On Amazon After $5 Off Coupon

One of the things that I love most about my Sony Z3 is its compatibility with Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology. The phone takes forever to charge with a standard USB wall charger (like almost the entire night), but with a Quick Charge device I can bring it from dead to fully juiced in fraction of the time.

The LG G4 Supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 After All

You may have heard that the LG G4 doesn't have support for Qualcomm's Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which seems odd considering it has a Snapdragon 808. That's what LG said at the launch event, but it's looking now like that was just a formality. The G4 has just appeared on Qualcomm's officially supported QC2.0 device list.

The Nexus 6 is big and fast and sharp, but my favorite feature is probably its Quick Charge capacity, which lets it charge up in a fraction of the time it takes older phones.
