The Razer Serval Is An $80 Controller For Android And Android TV Games, And It Comes With A Detachable Phone Clip

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.

Well, there's a new version of N.O.V.A., but it's mostly the same as the last one. This is N.O.V.A. 3 Freedom Edition. It's the same game, but it costs nothing to download and has no in-app purchases. The catch is that N.O.V.A. 3 Freedom Edition has ads.

The ZTE Spro 2 Is An Android-Powered Smart Projector With Google Play Access, An LTE Hotspot, And Too Few Vowels In Its Name

When a regular projector simply won't do at your next business meeting, there's the ZTE Spro 2. This mini projector has a touchscreen and runs Android with full access to the Play Store.

For this first round of nightlies, 31 devices will be supported with many more to come in the near future. CyanogenMod 11, based on KitKat, will now be on a weekly update schedule until its M13 release, after which development will be frozen.
