Taboola partners with ZTE to launch a news feed for smartphones (and you won't believe what happens next)

You're probably familiar with Taboola, at least in passing. It's the source of many sponsored news sections on websites. Now, Taboola is looking to become part of your smartphone with its new "content discovery" platform. It looks a lot like the Google Feed, but it's not. In fact, it could come off like one giant ad on your phone.

ZTE Tempo Go is the US’s first Android Go phone, on sale today for $80

For a while, ZTE and Alcatel seemed like they were in a bit of a race to be the first company to release an Android Go phone in the US. Two weeks ago, Alcatel announced that its 1X would be coming stateside sometime soon, and ZTE had the Tempo Go listed but unavailable on its US site since just after its announcement. Today you can finally buy one, and it's only $79.99.

That officially makes the ZTE Tempo Go the first Android Go phone in the US.

Here are all the Android Go phones announced at MWC 2018

Android Go was first introduced by Google at I/O in May 2017, so it's been a long wait for real devices running the slimmed-down Oreo experience. We hoped Mobile World Congress in Barcelona would be when OEMs began launching Android Go phones, and this was confirmed by Google last week.

ZTE announces the mid-range Blade V9 and the Tempo Go, its first Android Go phone

ZTE doesn't have the glitz and glamor of Samsung, but it sells a surprising number of phones. The company is on-hand at Mobile World Congress to show off its latest devices. There's the Blade V9 (above), which is a run-of-the-mill budget Android phone. Then we have the Tempo Go, which is the first Android Go phone from ZTE. In fact, it'll be the first Android Go phone in the US (although it might have a different name).

TWRP now supports Honor View10, Mate 10 Pro, and more

TeamWin Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to mod their device - from installing ROMs to simply making backups. The last time we covered the project earlier this month, it had started supporting the Moto Z2 Force, Redmi 5A, and several other phones.

Since then, a few more devices have been added to the roster, including the Honor View10 and Mate 10 Pro.

The ZTE Axon 7 has an Oreo beta program, but the requirements to join are steep

Over the past couple of months, more and more phones have begun receiving Android 8.0 Oreo. Despite being about six months old now, Oreo is still rolling out to several devices, slowly contributing to its 1% marketshare. Just recently, Samsung started (and then stopped) the official rollout of Oreo to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, and now ZTE is joining the club by announcing its Axon 7 A2017U Oreo Preview Program.

[Deal Alert] ZTE's foldable Axon M is $525 ($200 off) through AT&T over two years

These days, most manufacturers aim for their phones to have things like small bezels, longer screens, and water resistance. ZTE apparently didn't get this memo when it decided to sell the Axon M, a dual-screen and foldable smartphone, exclusively on AT&T. At its starting price of $725, it was a hard sell. Perhaps this $200 discount will entice those who were intrigued by the concept, but didn't want to spend that much money.

The ZTE Axon M is the weirdest smartphone I've ever tried [and failed] to use

"It's interesting." That's what I heard most often when I would show someone ZTE's bizarre dual-screen phone.

And, inevitably, "Who's it for?"

I never came up with a good answer. The Axon M is unlike any other smartphone on the market. Some people have made a point of likening it to the long-deceased Kyocera Echo, and while it is similar to that phone, the concept has evolved a fair bit. The Axon M is more mature, more considered, and more thoughtful - ZTE clearly spent time thinking about how a dual-screen phone would work, and how to minimize some of (though definitely not all) the pain points it would present.

Dual-screen ZTE Axon M is now available to order, exclusively from AT&T

In one of the most left-field phone releases of the year, ZTE recently announced the foldable, dual-screen Axon M. Leaks had already spoiled the surprise somewhat, but when David got it in his hands he was actually rather more impressed by the phone than he expected to be. Today, the device is available to order, and it's being sold exclusively through AT&T in the US.

Senior VP of Device and Network Services Marketing (snazzy title) for AT&T, Kevin Petersen, thinks the phone could be a success. “By letting you do 2 things at once, the ZTE Axon M is the perfect combination of wireless and entertainment and we’re thrilled to offer it exclusively at AT&T.”
