For as long as this operating system existed, it was either codenamed or officially named for candies. Thus, it is no surprise that Google is yet again going for the sugar candy name for the Android 6.0, which is scheduled to debut soon. Called Marshmallow, it will feature the next step in the evolution of the mobile system, designed to provide speed, ease of use and advanced features for the users. “Whether you like them straight out of the bag, roasted to a golden brown exterior with a molten center, or in fluff form, who doesn’t like marshmallows? We definitely like them! Since the launch of the M Developer
The patent wars continue, with Samsung firing back at Nvidia after they were sued by Nvidia for infringing upon their GPU patents, using Qualcomm chips.
iFixit did their typical tear down of new hardware, and this time they tore down the new HTC Nexus 9 from Google and found it to be very repair unfriendly.
Google’s earnings for the third quarter of 2014 disappointed Wall Street and investors’ expectations as they missed on earnings per share.
Google launched three new products today, two we anticipated and one we didn’t. We finally get an official launch on the Nexus 9, Nexus 6 and Nexus Play
We have learned that Google’s latest tablet, the HTC Nexus 9 will be launching on October 15th at $399 and will be available in stores November 3rd.
While combing through Nvidia’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) legal documents posted on the company’s website, Bright Side of News*’ sources pointed to a very interesting sentence that many may have overlooked or simply never seen. The legal document in question is Nvidia’s own claim with the ITC claiming that Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM) and Samsung (KRX:005935) are infringing upon its GPU technology patents. The document in question, which obviously had to go through Nvidia legal before becoming public is essentially a corporate confirmation of the previous Nexus 9 and HTC (TPE: 2498) rumors. Nvidia’s document specifically states, “the HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014, is also expected to use the
HTC today announced their earnings for the second fiscal quarter of 2014, Q2 2014. They posted a quarterly profit of NT$2.26 billion ($76.5 million), or NT$2.74 ($0.09 USD) per share on $65.06 billion NT ($2.18 billion USD). HTC’s shares were up as high as 4% on Taipei’s exchange trading this morning (Taipei time). Many people were interested to see how well HTC would perform because of their new HTC One M8 which we’ve reviewed. Based upon their current performance, it seems clear that HTC’s moves clearly resulted in improved profitability and a change in the company’s tide of losses from the previous quarters. Granted, they
After yesterday’s unbelievably long Google I/O opening keynote, Google published a lot of supporting documents. Some of those documents include the Android L Release’s own Material design and the supporting documentation. If you go through that documentation, you will notice that they have renders of familiar Google hardware. That includes the Google Chromebook Pixel and the Google Nexus 5. However, there is also an interesting device that appears to be an Android tablet sitting between them. That device actually fairly accurately represents the description given by rumors of the potential Nexus 9 tablet that is built by HTC and powered by Tegra K1. The above
So, everyone was expecting LG to make the next Google Nexus tablet, or maybe ASUS since they’ve also been one of the part Nexus tablet partners. However, you’d be wrong to assume either of those are correct since the next Nexus 9 tablet looks to be coming from HTC and it looks like its going to be a real competitor. The new Nexus 9″ tablet codenamed Volantis (not to be confused with Lady Gaga’s flying dress) was outed by Android Police today with a full image and spec drop of the device. And based upon what we’re seeing, it looks like Nvidia booted Qualcomm out of
