You’ve got to hand it to geniuses like Larry Page, one third of the so-called Google triumvirate, who is currently the company’s Chief Executive Officer. Fifteen odd years after co-founding what is now the world’s biggest search engine — and picking up a few tech assets along the way — Page sat down with Wired for an interview, in which Steven Levy picked his brain for his thoughts and opinions on a handful of matters.
Autonomous cars, augmented reality and shooting for the moon

First among these is about Google X Lab, which is Google’s secretive skunkworks laboratory, and which the company uses for research and development, and which have produced some of...

Back when Android smartphones were seemingly all you can get in the market, Samsung released its first ever tablet in the latter part of 2010, the 7-inch Froyo-powered Galaxy Tab. The original Tab didn’t exactly set the world alight, but it did pave the way for the 7.7-inch, 8.9-inch, and 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab variants, as well as others.
We told you yesterday that we might see a device with an 8-inch form factor from Samsung being introduced at MWC 2013, though it’s one that will sport the Galaxy Note moniker. Apparently, it won’t be the only tablet offering that we’ll see from Sammy come...

Details picked up by a number of sources include the following:
  • 5-inch 1920 x 1080 p display

Samsung will introduce a new 5.8-inch Android device for the European market, reports SamMobile. Known by a name of Galaxy Fonblet (yuck), it is allegedly built with a design similar to that of the Galaxy Player 5.8 media player. Details for the large GT-I9152 smartphone include dual-SIM support and Pure White color.
Sounds pretty large, doesn’t it? Well, if the rumors are true, there’s a bigger Galaxy Note...

The LG Optimus G flagship handset has crossed the 1 million sold mark, according to the smartphone maker. Available in a number of markets around the globe since September, the phone is set to arrive in Europe and China later this month where it should pick up momentum. As a refresher, the Optimus G can be paired with either AT&T or Sprint here in the United States.
While the 1 million figure is nothing to sneeze at, it does not stack up the likes of...

Ever since Sony has introduced the Xperia Z in Las Vegas during CES, we’ve been all eyes and ears to make sure we’re bringing you all the availability updates issued around the world. However, as Sony has graciously passed the responsibility to carriers, it’s become a bit hard to keep up with everything, from rumors to official info that’s leaking excruciatingly slow.
But you know we’re not ones to give up a fight very easily, so what we’ve decided to do is...

The next couple of months are going to be very busy for Samsung Electronics, at least if we are to believe the flurry of reports about new phones and tablets coming from the Korean company.
Today, the Samsung experts at SamMobile brought us news of a next generation Galaxy X Cover, and a new series of Galaxy Tab devices that will be unveiled at MWC. Yesterday, we’ve got the first information about the Galaxy Note 8, a stylus-equipped tablet that will join the Note family soon. Here’s another new device...

Since XBMC first arrived on the Android platform in July, the open-source media center has been updated numerous times, the last of which brought support for Android 4.2 devices and Tegra 2 chipset, as well as other tweaks and the usual bug fixes.
If you find the software package to be a bit on the complex side to set up and run, you’ll want to check out the latest XBMC version, which is said to be the first “fully functional” release that will work on any Android device. What’s more — the update marks the first...

The market for normal outdoorsy smartphones (as in not overly rugged and bulky) seems to have grown a bit lately, so it was only a matter of time until Samsung looked to capitalize on this with a brand new dust and water proof device.
And while Sammy is yet to announce something official, our go-to source of rumors relating to the Android king, Sam Mobile, tells us that a Galaxy Xcover 2 is very close to launch. This will follow on the footsteps of the 2011 Xcover (also known as the Galaxy Xtreme), but will take the specs up a few notches.
For starters, the Xcover 2 will bump up the screen size from 3.65 to 4 inches and the resolution from 480 x 320 pixels to 800 x 480. The second...
