Android 4.4 adoption more than doubled over a one-month period ending April 1st.
Jelly Bean grows while Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich cede market share.
Samsung has made yet another apparently unexciting mid-range smartphone official, although the Galaxy Core Advance actually has what it takes to leave a mark on a so far ignored mobile market segment.
Karbonn’s upcoming flagship device, the Titanium X, looked fairly alluring ever since its first specs were revealed, but now that the list of features is (nearly) whole, it’s crystal clear the OEM will go after Samsung and Micromax, the two leaders of the Indian mobile market.
So far focused solely on premium Android slates with extravagant price tags and more recently, tabs based on Windows 8.1, Toshiba has finally come out with a Nexus 7 2013 “killer” wannabe of its own, dubbed simply the Excite 7.
Defying every price barrier known to mobile enthusiasts and pushing common sense to the limits, Gionee has announced the GPad G3 quad-core phablet in India, pricing it at an unbelievable $157 (Rs. 9,999).
Always a step (or several) behind competitors Samsung and Micromax as far as smartphone sales in India are concerned, Karbonn looks to finally break the rivals’ duopoly by rolling out a new flagship device dubbed Titanium X.
Xolo is at it again in its effort to become a real threat for Samsung’s Indian mobile business, this time rolling out a phablet dubbed Q2000 that touts mostly mid-end specs.
Google has released the latest Android distribution numbers, and things are looking up, with Jelly Bean now running on more than 50 percent of devices.
Go big or go home used to be the motto of phablet manufacturers, as tech-savvy folks looked unable or unwilling to wrap their heads around the concept of budget-conscious larger than 5-inch phones.
Anyone from India looking to make a solid deal on an Android handheld with cool looks, decent speed and spacious display? You’re in luck, because Xolo is on a roll and, following the Q600, Play, Q1000S and A500S, they’ve just introduced the Q900.
For a device that’s bound to only hit Korea and even that in limited quantities, the curved LG G Flex is sure enjoying a long, healthy run in the rumor mix. Only today, for once, we’re not (just) hearing about its “curvalicious” design.
Archos GamePad 2 goes official: same old design, same price, but faster CPU, more RAM and crisper display
Anyone remember the first-gen Archos GamePad? You know, the 7-inch budget-friendly Android tablet designed with gamers in mind, but heavily criticized by everyone for shoddy build quality, weak gaming support and an overall disappointing set of specs.
Aside from entering the smartphone arena with a number of fairly intriguing products (especially from a pricing standpoint), Archos has recently cranked up its tablet volumes, even going so far as to tackle niches than no one knew existed.
Aside from hunting down HP for the PC market crown by basically being the only major player in the business who’s seen its market share boosted in the past couple of years, Lenovo has bold plans for the mobile universe as well.
The multiple iterations of Android Jelly Bean gained market share steadily in the last month, according to the latest Android platform distribution numbers released by Google.
Lenovo kicked off IFA 2013 way ahead of schedule by introducing the world to a heap of new ThinkPad laptops on Tuesday, but you didn’t really think that was it for the OEM and the Berlin expo, did you?
Looks like someone at Sony made a blunder of catastrophic proportions with mere hours to go until maybe the company’s biggest smartphone unveiling to date. Not that the Xperia Z1 (aka Honami) was much of a mystery before today.
Just because Alcatel came forward with the One Touch Idol S and Idol Mini a few days ago, that doesn’t mean the company is all done with showing off its IFA 2013 guns. Not even close, as the French are actually only now pulling out the big guns, both figuratively and literally.
Acer announced its second all-in-one running Android today. The 24-inch machine comes with a full-HD multi-touch screen.
