HTC 10 in Camellia Red and Topaz Gold colors finally available in the U.S.

 

Up until this point, the HTC 10 has only been available (in the United States) in the rather dull-looking Carbon Grey and Glacier Silver colors. But if you're in the market for a new phone, not only has the price once again dropped to $599 for the unlocked model - but you can now grab it in the Camellia Red and Topaz Gold colors.

The Topaz Gold color looks clean and minimalist, and at least in my opinion, the Camellia Red looks fantastic. The new colors will start shipping in early October, but you can pre-order them now.

Purchasing the HTC 10 from HTC's website means you get free Uh-Oh Protection, which covers screen cracking and water damage for up to 12 months.

Google Drive on the web gets UI tweaks, better file downloads, and more

Google is making some much-needed improvements to Drive today, but not the app. We're talking about the web interface. Even if you're primarily using Drive on Android, you'll end up visiting in the browser on occasion. When you do, you'll see a refined UI and much better file downloads.

Here's what Google says is coming in the update.

  • You can now compress and download Drive items into multiple 2GB zip files. Files have an improved name structure, for example: drive-download-20160516T125832Z.zip for the first file and drive-download-20160516T125832Z-2.zip for subsequent archives.
  • Better Google Forms handling.
  • Empty folders are now included in the zip.

The Galaxy Note7 gets torn down by iFixit, is slightly easier to repair than the S7

iFixit's been providing smartphone teardowns for a while, and now they've got one of Samsung's latest and greatest for us to look at. Considering the Galaxy Note7 is a water-resistant phone with curved glass on both sides, it's not unreasonable to think that it would fare poorly. That being said, it does do marginally better than the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge did.

Google prepares the way for WebAPKs and Progressive Web Apps in latest Chromium for Android build

Google's very hot on the whole web apps topic, with it promoting things like Chrome Apps on both Chrome OS and Android, as well as things like Instant Apps, introduced earlier this year at I/O. Well, it seems like Google is preparing another assault, this time with 'Progressive Web Apps,' a way to make web apps more powerful and useful to end users, plus make it easier for developers to put them together.

A Progressive Web App is a powerful web application that can be used anywhere, on any OS. As you use the app more and more, it gradually will get more powerful.

At this point we're just waiting for Google to release Android 7.0 (and the new Nexus devices that come with it) to the masses. The company never gives exact dates for this kind of thing, though a vague "fall" pattern generally leads us to expect new Android hardware and software sometime between August and October. According to the official support forum for Telus, an exclusively Canadian cell carrier, Nougat updates will be coming in less than a week.

Google Duo review: When video calls are this simple, I will surely use them more

Of the two communication apps that Google announced at I/O, Duo surely seemed like the less interesting one. Video calls have been done again and again, and by now, if you have someone you want to talk to and see at the same time, odds are you already have your preferred way of doing that. But my last few days with Duo have shown me another side to the story. Duo isn't trying to revolutionize video calls, it just wants to approach them from a more modern perspective, one that builds on our smartphone-carrying habits, our needs for immediacy, and our disdain for complexity.
