The YotaPhone 2 Gets A White Version, A Price Drop, And A Lollipop Update With Improvements To The E-Ink Interface

The YotaPhone 2 and its predecessor have always intrigued me. They're probably the only significant departure in form factor available on the market right now that isn't different for the sake of being so, adds value, and has been relatively successful in its endeavor. After its European release last December, the YotaPhone 2 is coming back with a new color variant: white. And it looks striking if you ask me, especially with that new E Ink white theme where the old interface's colors are inverted.

Android One is on its way to Turkey. Today Google announced that it is partnering with General Mobile to bring out a faux-leather phone packed with stock Android and better specs than you would expect from Google's effort to grace the world with decent low-cost devices.

The General Mobile handset eschews low-res screens for a more impressive 5-inch HD display. Rather than a Mediatek processor, on the inside there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410.

[Bug Watch] Android 5.1 Devices Show The Text String '@17041057' In Notifications With More Than 7 Items

Android is a complex, multifaceted beast with a lot of moving parts that can break. In the grand scheme of things, this bug isn't a huge deal. It doesn't affect functionality, but it sure is annoying. Here's the deal: get an expanded notification with more than 7 elements on Android 5.1, and you'll probably see a line at the bottom that says, "@17041057."

Just like on mobile, Android TV users turn to the Play Store to install new apps. An update has rolled out that bumps the software up to version 5.4.12. The most immediate difference is a tweaked look, as the interface now sports larger titles.

Google Acknowledges WebView-Related App And Device Crashing, Says The New Version Should Fix It

One of the less glamorous improvements to Android 5.0 Lollipop is the move to updating WebView via the Play Store rather than only with system updates. WebView is the component that lets apps render web pages internally rather than kicking you over to a browser.

[Finally] The Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 OTA Is Rolling Out, And We've Got The OTA Link [Update: Factory Image]

Google announced the Android 5.1.1 update for the Nexus 9 last Thursday, and said it was rolling out that very day.
