Hot on the heels of Sprint's launch of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5, AT&T announced that it will begin selling both the 8.4- and 10.5-inch LTE variants online and in stores beginning September 26. The carrier is also taking pre-orders for both tablets right now with a shipping date of September 23.
Big Blue is only selling the tablets in charcoal gray, so if you were hoping for white, you're out of luck.
It seems like we've seen every possible iteration of the Guitar Hero style of musical game. But thanks to the creativity of developers, we're caught off guard on occasion. Case in point: R.G.B. It's a pretty simple rhythm game with only three lanes, making it technically much easier than the games that it imitates. But a deceptively slow pace and an addictive main mechanic mean it's more than the sum of its parts.
Samsung, I get it: you are not Apple, and you like making fun of Apple. But in its latest slew of iAds, Samsung basically throws any semblance of taste and humor out the window to make fun of Apple mostly for the sake of doing it. Behold.
In this ad we see Samsung making fun of the fact that Apple's livestream of the iPhone 6 event sucked. It did - it was terrible.
It's been said that you can never be too young, too skinny, or too rich. A similar aphorism for smartphones might be, "they can never be too fast, too hi-res, or have too long a battery life." The user in search of longer untethered battery life has a few options including external packs or extended batteries for phones that support them. And today, Galaxy S5 owners get a new option in the form of Mophie's $99.95 Juice Pack.
Greetings, loyal readers. Several months have passed since our last installment of the Android Police Files, and a few gems have piled up in that time. People have come to us with vague messages about Minecraft, stalkers, in-app purchases, and really weird dreams. Seriously, we're not sure what to make of that last one. Give it a read and let us know what you make of it.

The HTC Desire 820 is all about appealing to specification geeks, there really isn't any point in hiding it. Android's first 64-bit, octa-core chipset (Snapdragon 615), a 13MP camera, an 8MP selfie camera, and a big 5.5" screen. This is a phone for the hardware geek on a budget, and budget it is: the 820 will retail in Europe for just 329 Euros.
We had the opportunity to sit down with the 820 at IFA, and while the numbers are big, the phone still feels well-within its price bracket.
The LG G3 Stylus is, frankly, LG's attempt to hit Samsung below the [pricing] belt for consumers in the market for a Note 4. The G3 Stylus, though, is a hell of lot cheaper, and for good reason: it's not a very impressive device. With a 5.5" qHD display and a quad-core Snapdragon 400 paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, the G3 Stylus panders shamelessly to a price point, down to the capacitive rubber-tipped stylus that feels supremely disposable.
Lenovo is an up-and-coming player in the Android world, having taken the Chinese smartphone market by storm in the last couple of years. Now that it owns Motorola, we'll likely be hearing the Lenovo name even more often over here in the US as the company seeks to expand the presence of its Android portfolio across the world.
This is probably especially true of tablets, which Lenovo has consistently been creating for a number of years now, and an area where Motorola has generally fallen flat.
If you've been watching the tablet space lately, you've probably noticed Qualcomm isn't exactly winning the processor wars: Intel, Samsung, and NVIDIA have been slowly clawing back market share in a segment where cellular radios just aren't as important. The biggest gains have undoubtedly come for Intel, who have been extremely aggressive in pricing their mobile chipsets low and, allegedly, providing superior sell-through and promotional services for retailers and OEMs, something Qualcomm and NVIDIA simply don't have much experience with, and budget chipmakers like MediaTek and RockChip can't afford.
Huawei isn't a household name in America, and it's really not even one throughout Europe at this point, either. However, in China and much of southeast Asia, Huawei has been a rapidly emerging dominant force in the smartphone industry, and consistently tried to differentiate its products in the marketplace through engineering know-how. While this hasn't alwaysworked out, especially in America, Huawei is without a doubt one of the most advanced smartphone OEMs out there.
