After a short beta period The Walking Dead: March to War is officially available on the Play Store. It is a free-to-play survival strategy game that features a beautiful design. While the game's art direction is visually superb, the gameplay is lacking thanks to its liberal use of the typical free-to-play mechanics we are all too accustomed to. Read More
Today at IFA 2017 in Berlin, LG announced the V30, its latest flagship phone. In the looks department, it follows closely in the footsteps of the G6, the company’s other premium offering from earlier in the year, and very much adheres to the current trend for minimal bezels and a large screen.

Palm's early smartphones and PDAs were a staple of the late 90s and early 00's. After the release of Apple's iPhone in 2007 and Android in 2008, Palm began selling smartphones with its new webOS operating system.

TCL acquired the rights to the Palm brand from HP in 2011, and promised to "re-create a new company in Silcon Valley" to develop new Palm devices. Those plans seemingly fell through, but now TCL is promising that new Palm devices will arrive in 2018. Read More

Earlier this year, AIY Projects partnered with Google to develop the 'Voice Kit.' Once assembled and connected to a Raspberry Pi microcomputer, you had your very own DIY Google Assistant smart speaker. Google even added support for the kit to its Android Things OS.
But there was one problem - the only way to buy the kit was by finding issue 57 of the MagPi Magazine, which included the kit. The demand was high as well; a reprint from earlier this month sold out in 17 minutes. Now that there definitely aren't any copies of #57 left, AIY has partnered with Microcenter to sell the Voice Kit in retail stores. Read More
Those of you who follow Google's augmented reality adventures will probably know of the Lenovo Phab2 Pro (which hilariously isn't getting Nougat) and the ASUS ZenFone AR - both rather bulky phones with complicated-looking camera arrangements on the back. But ARCore is something a bit different; it aims to bring augmented reality to phones that the general public uses, starting today. Read More
