If you’ve been wanting to get your hands on a Google Glass unit, or perhaps have been craving a Moto X-style phone but without the Moto X-style price tag, this week could be a lucky one for you. With new announcements from Motorola and Google to discover, let’s take a look at the week in Android! (more…)
The 7 inch tablet market is probably the fastest growing in the mobile arena. While phone manufacturers are still experimenting with all manners of sizes for handset screens, there seems to be a general consensus that for a tablet, 7 inches is the sweet spot. Larger tablets are still popular, but for the most part, 7 is where it’s at.
I was recently alerted to the existence of the GOCLEVER Aries 7o. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s a fully capitalized company name followed by a mode name incorporating a sign of the zodiac, and then a number and a letter. Yep, that’s seven oh, not seven zero. But that’s by the by. Having just taken ownership of a Nexus 7, I was keen to see how it compared.
Wherever your allegiance lies, this week has been big for new releases. While iOS users enjoy the release of the iPad Air, Android users have the finally-officially-unveiled Nexus 5 to revel in. With mystery barges, new phones and a biscuit-themed OS to discuss, let’s take a look at this week in Android!
If you have spent any time online over the past few months, you can’t help but have become aware of the Nexus 7. Even if you weren’t actively seeking out information about the device, you’ve probably absorbed a great deal as if by osmosis.
The latest addition to the Google / Asus Nexus range has been eagerly anticipated for some time now. Taking a leaf out of Apple’s book, the latest version of the Nexus 7 was not given a unique name. Just as the iPad 3 was not actually called the iPad 3, rather, the ‘new iPad’, so there is nothing in the name to distinguish this Nexus from last year’s model if you just look at the name.
If you’ve been having trouble with your Nexus 7′s multitouch display or have a hankering for comparison shopping while you’re wearing Google Glass, this week might have brought you some answers and solutions. Let’s jump in and take a look at the week’s best news in Android! (more…)
Google Glass and Moto X fans, this is your week once again. Stories this week include updates to everyone’s favourite Google-made wearable computer, new accessories for the Moto X flagship smartphone from Motorola and some Nexus 7 defects thrown into the mix. Let’s take a look!
It’s been a busy week in the world of Android, with Google’s Android and Chrome event hosting a bunch of pretty major announcements, including an update to one of our favourite 7-inch tablets. Let’s dive in and take a look! (more…)
If you have been following Android.Appstorm over the past couple of months, you must have noticed that we feel very strongly about Android tablets, and specifically Android tablet apps. We cried out to Google asking them to get serious about tablet-optimized apps discoverability in the Play Store, several writers on our team have rounded up tablet apps in a multitude of categories, and I personally maintain numerous Playboard channels axed towards spotlighting the best tablet-optimized apps.
Suffice it to say that tablet app discovery has been a personal cause for us, for the simple reason that we know there are thousands of excellent options out there, but Google had failed to make them visible which in turn had everyone thinking there aren’t any. So you can imagine how elated we were to see Google at I/O introducing new features that focus on tablet apps discovery, from a developer and a user standpoint. While the announcements weren’t the most impressive out of the I/O keynote, and they should have come a year ago, they do mean a lot to us at Android.Appstorm that we can’t help but make a stop to explain to you why you need to get excited.
It’s been an interesting week. Today we celebrate World Health Day and the culmination of a week that began with April Fools –and, oh boy did Google bring it this year! From Google Nose to Facebook Home, let’s take a look at what’s been going on this week in the big wide world of Android. (more…)
