A few hours ago, we spotted no less than five mentions of "Android 5.1" on Google's Indonesian Android One page. Considering that 5.1 is quite a jump from 5.0.2, and something like 5.0.3 seemed more likely as the next bug fixer, we were cautious to suggest it may have been a mistake or a very persistent typo.

Motorola's super-cheap Moto E was a crowd favorite in the sub-$150 smartphone segment last year, so it'd only make sense that the company is working on a sequel. Here, we think we have it caught in the press-shot flesh - mostly because we're not sure what else it could be.
This isn't a Moto G, as it lacks a second speaker grille on the front, and the proportions are all weird in terms of the screen:body ratio. Read More
Evan Blass, better known around these parts as the well-regarded leaker @evleaks, has taken to Twitter (despite being retired) with a leaked thumbnail of what may be renders of the upcoming HTC One M9. We've seen purported images of HTC's next flagship surface already, but word on the street says these were dummy shells the manufacturer produced while developing the device (here's what Blass himself has to say on the matter).

A few new images of what very well could be the HTC One M9 have surfaced, and they're a good match for the first shots that showed up a few days ago. This time they're a lot less blurry, though. Take a look.
A new HTC flagship phone is coming. You probably already knew that. But the first possible (and frankly, quite probable) look at the device came today from the folks at NowhereElse.fr, a French leak site. Two photos show the front and back of the device, which follows the general design of the One family with a couple of important differences. Read More
Asus has been teasing a new phone announcement for CES, but phones need wireless certifications, and sometimes those documents give away more than intended. Such appears to be the case for the "ZC451CG," which the product description submitted to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group calls a successor to the ZenFone. This might be what Asus plans to unveil at CES. Read More
Back when we first took a look at the design initiative that would become "material design," we noted that Google planned to update apps incrementally, with changes happening over an unspecified period of time, until they'd evolved to full compliance. A couple of months ago Hangouts began its journey, but to many the app still doesn't feel quite up to par. Read More
If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and void your warranty, you can have Android 5.0 on your Sprint Galaxy S5 right now. An early build of Lollipop for this device has leaked on XDA, and it's flashable with Odin. Expect bugs, but hey, it's Lollipop.
The Android Wear companion app on Android has been a bit of an eyesore since the platform launched last summer. It looked like something born of a torrid love affair between Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich and was lacking in options. A new leak from Phandroid shows off the updated Wear app with a new design and features, and it looks much improved. Read More
Reaching "Inbox zero" is not an easy task. Especially when there are those emails that might require future action, or those that hang in a nebulous state of still being useful despite the conversation having ended. It's also not very easy to parse out exactly what you need to get done after poring over a page of emails. Read More
