We’re less than two weeks away from an announcement for the all new HTC One. As such, HTC is teasing the hell out of us on its UK Twitter account. With t-minus 11 days in counting we can expect that this teasing will continue to ramp up prior to the announcement of the M8. With a Verizon branded All New One making its way to eBay, and a leak involving a sales guide for the device, there’s not much left to know about the device.
For several months, we have heard that Samsung will offer a premium version of the Galaxy S 5. Rumors have flipflopped between it being called a “Prime” version to being part of the “F Series,” but the fact that it was in the pipeline was always consistent.
Now the report is that Samsung’s mobile chief, J.K. Shin, denies the existence of a premium Galaxy S 5……
Samsung released a set of accessories for the Galaxy Core Advance customers, which aims at helping disabled and visually impaired users.
The Ultrasonic Cover will help the user detect barriers or a person from a distance of 2 meters through vibration or by providing text-to-speech feedback.
Another one is the Optical Scan Stand that will detect text from an image and read it to the user. The stand automatically activates the Optical Scan application. Lastly, there’s the Voice Label that will help the user to distinguish objects by enabling them to make notes and tag voice labels using NFC. Read more
With just a few days left to the official announcement of the Oppo Find 7, a new set of leaked photos of the device along with the retail boxing surfaced on the web today, thanks to folks over at chinese website, IT168.
The device looks pretty large and similar to the Find 5 except that it rocks a rounded edge, but what’s more important is the hardware fixed into this beast. The device is said to come in two variants, both featuring a 5.5- inch screen but with different specs. There is one variant that is rumored to come with a 1920×1080 resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB of RAM. Another variant is said to sport a 2560×1440 resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, and 3 GB of RAM. In addition, past rumors suggests that the rear camera will be 50 MP’s which is unbelievable, but who knows.

Have nothing to do and dislike waiting for updates? Good news. The latest version of the Google Play Store is now available to download. What is included in v4.6.16? First off, you can now install a ton of applications all at once; however, mass removal of apps has been removed. Why Google added one side and got rid of the other is rather odd. Also, due to the recent in-app purchases lawsuit, the Play Store now has a diverse set of three required password options: always, every thirty minutes, or never.
In the latest round of Google app updates, the Chromecast app has seen a jump from version 1.3 to version 1.5.3. The update brings a few small changes, including making the app available in over 50 languages, improved stability on Samsung devices, and some additional settings and fixes for Chromecast in general.
It isn’t a major update, but it’s worth grabbing anyway, especially if you own a lot of Samsung devices. Hit the link below to grab the download.

We’ve been hearing plenty of rumors that LG’s 2014 flagship will sport a quad HD screen, but this latest leak is the best evidence you’ll see for a quad HD that you’ll see outside of an official announcement. A Dutch site reportedly took two screenshots on a G3, showing the lock screen and part of the settings screen. Want to guess what the resolution of those screenshots is? Yep, a 2560 x 1440 screenshot, or the resolution of a quad HD screen.
Even though Samsung disappointed the hopeful by launching the Galaxy S 5 with just a 1080p screen, it’s looking very, very likely that LG is going to bring an uber-high-resolution to the market this year. Is that going to be enough to knock off Samsung as the top Android vendor this year? Who knows. Either way, it’s going to be great to watch LG give Samsung some serious competition.

Applications for Google Glass, otherwise known as “Glassware,” are becoming more and more innovative each day.
MedicAR, developed by Droiders, is only one of the latest apps for Google Glass that will surely make a difference in the lives of many.
Although not the most realistic simulation application, MedicAR uses augmented reality to assist students studying to become surgeons. The app will guide users through specific procedures and show them where to cut, which tools to use, different steps to take, and how to clean it all up after the “operation.”
Hit the break to see the app in action in a video.
Straight Talk is now officially offering nano SIM cards for devices to be used on its network, which is great news for those of you that wanted to give the service a try but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of cutting down a larger SIM card to work in your phone. Theses nano SIM cards run $6.99, which is the same price as their other two size options.
There’s not a whole lot of devices that use this incredibly small card, but if you have a Moto X or newer Motorola Droid device you’ll be able to use one of these. We’ll probably start seeing this SIM card become the standard as phones get thinner and smaller, too, so this is a good move to prepare for that.
If you need one, hit the link below to place an order.
