Ultimate Ears makes some of the best Bluetooth portable speakers around, and though they're a little on the expensive side, we usually think they're a good buy for anyone looking for a portable speaker that's capable of putting out some very respectable sound. One of those speakers is the UE BOOM 2, which sounded great when it first came out and can still hold its own against others on the market, despite having been launched a tad over 2 years ago now.

[Update: Demo video] ‘Linux on Galaxy’ will bring the desktop OS to Samsung phones and DeX

The idea of using a smartphone as a full desktop PC when connected to an external monitor isn't new. The now-dead Ubuntu for phones and tablets had 'Convergence' as one of its main features, allowing you to run full desktop Linux apps when you connected a keyboard and mouse (and display, if your device supported that).

Well, how about that? It would appear that Tekken Mobile has come out of soft-launch today to finally release for the majority of Play Store users. It is, of course, a fighting game, but more along the lines of the mobile version of Injustice 2 than anything previously found in the Tekken franchise.
