Box has unveiled their new Note-taking app and while it won’t be released until next year, you can be part of the beta trials if you wish to. There’s a plethora of note-taking apps on the Google Play store, even Google themselves has one. So one might ask, why use this one? Box is taking a different approach making it a more “social” experience for the user. What sets this app apart from other note-taking apps is that the mobile version has a “Facebook-like” chat head that appears when another person is editing the current note.
This certainly gives you new possibilities and is a very interesting idea. Note will be free for current Box users and I’m sure more information on its release will be available in due time. Check out the video after the break.
Icon packs in the Google Play store are a thing of beauty. A simple download can drastically change the look of your Android home screen. If you’re running a custom launcher such as Nova or APEX, then I’m sure you’ve dabbled a little bit with changing out your icons. There’s hundreds of them in the Google Play Store, but in my opinion only a fraction of them are very good. Kovdev is certainly in that group and has made some brilliant icon packs and today has launched quite possibly their best yet in NOX.
A good soundtrack, nice cars, and a couple of good looking people are in LG’s recent video showing off the functionality of their rear key button in their upcoming G2 flagship device. The video shows off how the rear keys can be used to lower or raise the volume, how easy it is to take selfies, and how to access the quick memo pad. Check out the video after the break!
Looks like previous rumors of LG being the next Nexus manufacturer now has some competition with the latest rumors of Motorola actually being given the helm of manufacturing the next Nexus. Now while this is just a rumor, and one should always take this with a grain of salt, this does come from quite a credible source in Taylor Wimberly. If you’re not familiar with Taylor, he has a fairly good track record when it comes to rumors on previous Nexus news that he has gotten correct. According to his post on his personal Google+ page “Motorola will release a Nexus smartphone in Q4 (that is not the Moto X).”
With the specs of the LG G2 looking really good, I was actually fairly excited of LG again being the manufacturer of Google’s next Nexus. Although I would be lying to say I wasn’t at the least bit intrigued with Motorola finally being given the chance of making a Nexus device, especially since Google owns the company. What do you guys think, would you rather have Motorola or LG make the next Nexus? Or do you still have HTC, Samsung, or even Sony at the top of your wishlist? Let me know in the comment section!
While currently only available in Europe (oddly enough?), PlayStation has released their All-Stars Island game in Google’s Play Store for Android devices. From the looks of it, you and several of Sony’s popular characters such as Nathan Drake and Sackboy are pinned in an Island in this adventure style game play. More characters from other of Sony’s popular games will be incorporated in the near future.
Hopefully this game will be available in the US and other countries in the near future.
With a whopping $1500 price tag for the early “developer” edition that people had to pay to have early access to Google’s Glass project, many were a bit worried that the launch price point might be too high for the general public. Looks like latest rumors have it as low as $299 upon release. This is just a rumor after all so take it for a grain of salt for now as this bit of info comes from Taiwan’s Topology Research Institute and hasn’t been confirmed by Google themselves. Taiwan’s Topology Research Institute based this price estimate upon how much Google Glass costs to produce per unit.
Of course, we won’t truly know the price point until the release date is closer or until Google tells us, so just be patient until then!
If this truly is the starting price of Glass, is $300 just right in your opinion? And will you be picking one up for yourself?
There’s quite a bit of talk that NVIDIA is planning on making their own line of tablets that will be paired with their much popular Tegra SoC line (Tegra 5). I say tablet line because not only are there plans on making a high end tablet, but due to recent GFXBench testing results NVIDIA is also planning on releasing a 7 inch tablet with a resolution of 1280 by 800. This mysterious tablet was running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean during the test, but it’s most certain that will be a more up to date version once it’s actually released. It’s also very possible these tablets could just be reference tablets.
What do you guys think of NVIDIA releasing and manufacturing their own Android tablet line? Are you already a fan of their Tegra SoC?
Sony’s upcoming flagship, codenamed the Honami, is said to have some amazing specs along with a revamped UI. Thanks to some hard working people over on XDA, a port of the UI has been made readily available for rooted Xperia Z users. Obviously there’s quirks in it and certain things probably don’t work, but nonetheless it’s still great to see what the new Honami has to offer. Check out the video below after the break!
Also, what do you guys think about the route Sony has taken with its upcoming Honami phone?
With Verizon’s seemingly evasive HTC One launch imminent, their exclusive blue color HTC One has leaked and looks rather nice. The color texture looks great as it’s more of a matte blue color which should look awesome paired with the aluminum body structure of the device.
