People are greedy. We just are. What we want is all the content. All the content streaming to our Chromecasts. And as the dog days of summer have slowly ticked by Vimeo, Redbox Instant and Hulu have been the main streaming services to promise apps for our precious little dongles. Which is great, but we want more. We…
Google is continuing the Jelly Bean reign with today's Android 4.3 update. It's shipping with the new Nexus 7, and is for the most part, very incremental.
On Stage at the D11 conference, Google's Android chief Sundar Pichai confirmed rumors that an HTC One Google Edition running vanilla Android will be available on June 26th for $600. That means the best Android phone in the world will be available unlocked and without the often clunky HTCSense skin. Heck yeah.
Google I/O is almost upon us, and that means, presumably, some updates to Android. We might not see a full-on update to a new version (5.0) announced at tomorrow's keynote, but we do expect some changes. And while the wishlist might not be as long as it has been in years past, there's still plenty left to do. Here's…
Lately I've been thinking about the multitasking experience on Android and I feel like there's still a lot to improve. I love how the thumbnails come up, but in 4.2.2 they made it so that the current app joined the list of "Recent Apps". This looks great on phones and small-sized tablets, but it looks really bad on…
We've known about Sony's Xperia Tablet Z for the last month or so. It promised incredible lightness, thinness, speed, and beauty. Guess what? It deliveres.
It's the future, and that being the case, you're going to want to talk to your smartphone and have it make heads or tails of what you're saying.

A few weeks ago, reports trickled down from the mount that Acer was prepping a $100 7-inch tablet with specs that were juuuussssssst decent enough to be usable. The Iconia B1-A71 seems to fit the bill. Except, well, for the bill.
Android Adoption: Jelly Bean now over 10% with ICS nearing 30% while Gingerbread has finally ducked under 50%. [Android]
We've been digging Toshiba's line of Excite tablets, and the newest member of the family has a lot to offer. Not only does it appear to measure up to its competition on specs, but this ten-inch tablet only costs $350. Color us intrigued (which is kind of a brownish red).
Android 4.2 Still-Jelly Bean is pretty sweet. You've got your Photo Sphere Camera, you've got your Gesture Keyboard. But there's one thing you might notice is missing. Android Jelly Bean 4.2 doesn't know what December is.
AT&T has the One X. Sprint has the EVO 4G LTE. But it's been a long while since Verizon customers had an HTC flagship to call their own.
You know how it takes OMG like foreverz to get the newest version of Android on your phone? Motorola has a new plan that'll get you its latest and greatest software long before you normally would. It's called Test Drive.
HTC requires phones to have at least 512MB of RAM for a Jelly Bean update. Bad luck if your phone packs less. [HTC]
