Huawei Announces The Ascend P6, The Company's First True Flagship - 6.18mm Thick, Quad-Core, Android 4.2.2

Huawei announced the company's first real superphone this morning in London, and it's called the Ascend P6. Catchy.

This device has been leaked an absurd number of times in the last few months, so it's not exactly a shocker, but seeing it in all its press-ready photoshopped glory is a lot more impressive than through the lens of a mediocre smartphone camera in a dimly lit room. The P6 is undoubtedly the nicest looking handset Huawei has ever produced.

HTC Finally Releases Missing AT&T HTC One Kernel Source, Along With The Long-Lost Thunderbolt ICS Source

HTC must've been doing a bit of spring (read: summer) cleaning when it suddenly stumbled across some source code that should've been released to the public ages ago. First up is the AT&T HTC One's kernel source, which was nowhere to be found back in late April when all other One variants' source hit the scene.

What's even more interesting, however, is that the company also released the Thunderbolt's ICS kernel source.

Google Glass Explorer Edition Review: A Beta Product From The Future

Google Glass is an extraordinary device. Like the Apple II, the Palm Pilot, and the first iPhone, Glass is a category-defining product that will quickly become the template for all other devices of its type going forward. It's the kind of device that will have a place in a computer history museum.

As a technology journalist, I often cover innovative devices, or exciting devices, or devices destined to sell millions, but how often, going in, can you say "This is a device of historical significance?" Wearable computing has arrived.

AT&T Galaxy Note 8.0 Launching On June 21st For $400, Or $200 When Bundled With A Galaxy S4, S4 Active, Or Note II

We knew Samsung's latest entry to the Galaxy Note series was getting an AT&T LTE version, and today the carrier has released more detailed information about its launch. Those of you that want to take your notation on the go can pick up a Galaxy Note 8.0 On June 21st (this Friday) for $399.99, with a two-year contract.

[Deal Alert] Amazon Drops Verizon's Droid DNA To A Penny For New Contracts And Upgrades

If Verizon's HTC One kind-of announcement just didn't do it for you because you can't stay away from the red-and-black-themed Droid line, Amazon has HTC's next best offering on the table for a solitary penny. Of course we're talking about the Droid DNA, the undeniable king of Big Red's Droid lineup for the time being.

Despite the fact that the DNA was released back in November of last year, its spec sheet is still a fairly impressive one:

  • 5-inch Super LCD3 at 1920x1080 (440 PPI)
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB built-in storage
  • 8MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera
  • 2020mAh battery
  • Android 4.1.1 with Sense 4+

Sure, it doesn't have BOOMSOUND, Zoes, Ultrapixels, or other buzzwords – but c'mon, it's got its own now-famous red eye and a DROID logo, and it's only a penny.

[Weekend Poll] What's Your Preferred Tablet Display Size?

We're going to keep this weekend's poll simple: how big do you think your tablet should be? We've asked this question before, but that was quite a while ago. I'm curious to see if the dimensional preferences of the average AP reader have changed since, and what influence devices like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 have had on people who are in the market for a tablet.

The choices this time will be a bit different, as sub-7" tablets really never panned out in a big way, and we've got a few popular sizes out there now.

Google's 1-Pound Mystery Gift To Glass Explorers Isn't A Free Phone, Or Keys To A Self-Driving Car, It's...

Last week there was a bit of hubbub among the still-tiny population of Google Glass users, after Google sent out packages to the Explorer program. A few of them spotted UPS packages coming in through the My UPS service, and speculation ran wild. What could this 1-pound package be? A free Nexus 4? Keys to one of Google's self-driving cars? A golden ticket for admittance to the Google X Dream Factory?
