Not content with making a stylish Android set-top box, Razer is also planning on attacking the Android gaming market on its home turf. The Serval is a full-sized, console-style Bluetooth game controller that's compatible with both Razer's Forge TV and direct connection with Android phones and tablets. It's far from the first controller made with Android in mind, but it's the first to come from perhaps the most high-profile game peripheral company out there, and is thus worthy of examination.

Blue Spark Technologies has introduced a new wearable device at CES, but it's not a smart watch or a fitness band or even a VR headset. It's a single-use skin patch called TempTraq that connects to your Android (or iOS) phone to track body temperature.
Blue Spark pitches the patch to parents with sick progeny, though it could conceivably be used on or by anyone. The patch affixes to the body under the arm, and transmits temperature information over Bluetooth to its dedicated app. Read More
We usually don't cover news on Bluetooth speakers here at Android Police, at least not ones without specific mobile-related features. But Cameron enjoyed the original Ultimate Ears BOOM speaker so much that we figured an announcement post for the bigger brother was warranted. The plus-sized MEGABOOM features the same sturdy design as the original in a larger and louder package, complete with its impressive software features. It will retail for a hefty $299.99 later this month. Read More
Dual microUSB/USB OTG sticks may not be brand new anymore, but they're still not nearly as prevalent as more traditional flash drives. Nevertheless, there are plenty of options out there from the big brands and lesser-known folks alike. A year ago, Leef Bridge announced a model with support for USB 3.0. A year later, SanDisk is now doing the same.
The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 is a slightly redesigned version of the previous model, only it now handles faster transfer speeds. Read More

The fixed funding campaign had a goal of $85,000, and it's already over that with a few more weeks to go.

If you're one of those users who continually laments the lack of expandable storage options from high-end smartphones or tablets, Seagate would like a word. The well-known hard drive manufacturer is releasing a somewhat unconventional model aimed squarely at mobile devices.

Amazon's daily Gold Box deal usually only includes one or two items, but the retailer is going all out today with two dozen deals on various accessories. Some of these are relevant to Android and others not so much. Let's check out the most notable ones. Read More
ZeroLemon loves to strap enormous batteries onto every phone that they can, and since they keep doing it for basically every new Samsung and LG high-end model, someone must be buying them. The latest phone to receive the company's blessings of longevity is the Galaxy Note 4, itself already one of the biggest phones around. A 10,000mAh battery and a replacement rear cover (which is really more like a case) can be yours for $59.99 on Amazon. Read More
