The HTC One M8 Google Play Edition Is No Longer Available In The Play Store, Leaving No GPE Devices For Sale

Google Play Edition phones and tablets started dropping like flies last year, and now we've reached the eventual conclusion. The HTC One M8 GPE is no longer for sale in the Play Store, and it was the last. If you want a new device with stock Android, it's going to be a Nexus.

Motorola Turbo Charger Appears On Google Play, Listed As Coming Soon

You can buy the Turbo Charger from Motorola's website for $34.99. But just like with brick and mortar stores, it's nice to have options. So if I may have everyone's attention, please direct your attention to the Play Store, where the charger is now listed as coming soon.

The Motorola Turbo Charger can plug into any device that draws its juice from a USB port, but if you pair it with something like the Nexus 6, it will recharge the thing in a fraction of the time a weaker adapter would take.

[Update: It's Gone] Google Adds Work Chrome To The Play Store For Reasons Not Immediately Apparent

Update: Just as mysteriously as it entered the Play Store, Work Chrome has left - its listing appears to have been removed.

The idea behind Google's Android Work effort is to allow users of enterprise devices (whether BYOD or company-provided) to use the apps they're familiar with in one unified experience that keeps work and personal data separate. Work data will stay secure, with Android Work providing restrictions and controls for what can be done with the data, while personal data is readily accessible without needing to install any special third-party apps or launchers. An organization's administrators can deploy and administer apps in bulk, including internal apps, through the Play Store.

[Deal Alert] Grab A New Verizon Moto X (2013) Developer Edition For $200 On eBay

The original Moto X was a breath of fresh air when it debuted in 2013, but Verizon didn't want any part of Motorola's relatively open stance when it came to unlockable bootloaders and customization (as usual). To alleviate this for users who wanted an easy path to root, software backups, and custom ROMs, Motorola offered the Moto X Developer Edition, a full-priced 32GB phone that users could unlock by requesting a code.

Official Team Win Recovery Now Available For The HTC Butterfly 2

The HTC Butterfly 2 is a phone forever trapped in a nightmarish puberty of HTC industrial design. It uses high-end specifications like a 1080p screen and a Snapdragon 801 processor, but its plastic body is a step below HTC's flagships. It's packing a 13 megapixel rear camera, not unlike the newer Desire Eye, but it's saddled with the secondary Duo camera from the HTC One M8 (which is probably gone for the M9).

Hands On With The Blu Vivo Air: So Sleek, So Thin, So Affordable

In June of last year, Blu released its sleekest phone yet, the Vivo IV. This ultra-thin, super-svelte handset really put an emphasis on design, something that no other Blu phone before had really done. At CES, the company announced the newest member of the Vivo line, the Vivo Air. At just 5.1 mm thick, this is the thinnest smartphone you can currently buy in the US. It's stupid-thin, but it also weighs under 100 grams, so it's equally as light. So, stupid-light.

Based on its specs, I wouldn't necessarily call the Vivo Air the IV's successor, but rather just a new addition to that product family. In fact, the Vivo IV is still more powerful than the Air, though both devices feature the same MediaTek octa-core chipset.

Report: Samsung Drops Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 From The Next Flagship Galaxy Phone

Samsung and Qualcomm have been reliable partners since the rise of Android, to the mutual benefit of both the phone maker and the OEM chip supplier. But according to this report from Bloomberg, that relationship has hit a rocky patch as Samsung prepares its next flagship phone, presumably the Galaxy S6. An anonymous tipster told Bloomberg that Samsung will decline to use a Qualcomm chipset for the phone after poor testing of the Snapdragon 810, the OEM's top-of-the-line processor.

According to the report, Samsung has found that the 810 often overheats during testing, causing the company to choose its own line of Exynos processors instead.
