The summer months are usually a time when the smartphone industry takes a bit of a breather in terms of announcing new flagship devices. That may not be the case for the summer of 2017. In addition to rumors that Android co-founder Andy Rubin could launch his mysterious “Essential” phone during that time period, OnePlus has admitted its next flagship phone, the OnePlus 5, is due for a launch sometime in the summer.

The rumored hardware specs for the OnePlus 5 point towards a phone that can...

New renders have appeared that show an early version of LG’s vision for the upcoming V30. Essentially a slider phone with a secondary touch display in place of the physical keyboard you might find on the BlackBerry Priv, it’s a pretty intriguing concept. Evan Blass, who shared the renders, was quick to note that the final design of the LG V30 may well have departed from these early concepts, but they do provide a tantalising glimpse into LG’s thinking.

Last week we brought you news of a hot discount on the G-Boom Boombox to make the bass fans purr. If you’re looking to trade off a bit of that punch for something equally rugged, but which fits in your pocket, then you’re in luck.

Today’s deal is the aptly-named Trakk Bullet Ultra Compact Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker. Both waterproof and shockproof, each unit is rigorously tested by firing jets of water at it. If it can stand that, it’s more than equipped for your next camping trip or festival.


Don’t let its size fool you.

Unlike the Boombox (which you’d...

Nearly two decades ago, low-cost airlines barely existed. Today, they account for more than half of total capacity in Southeast Asia, allowing many people to fly for the first time. This boom can be traced back to one charismatic businessman: Anthony Fernandes, better known as Tony.

A former Warner Music executive, Fernandes bought then-ailing AirAsia from the Malaysian government for RM 1 in 2001 and turned it into Asia’s first low-cost airline.

From a company with only two jets,...

You read that right! It seems the industry is all about throwing as many cameras into a phone as humanly possible. Gionee has announced the S10, which is looking like a great phone on paper, but does have one thing that stands out. Actually… it has four. The Gionee S10’s main feature is its four cameras – two in the back and two in the front.

This Chinese manufacturer is not very popular in the West, but it has a reputation for going above and beyond industry standards. It’s also worth noting that at least a few companies have released Gionee phones under their own branding in western markets, with at least a few BLU phones being based around Gionee’s product line. They...

Got yourself a brand new Google Jamboard? Probably not. The thing does cost $4,999, but some companies may find it pretty useful. Regardless, those who do happen to have one can now enjoy the official app, which Google has just released via the Play Store.

What the app can do will depend on the type of device you are using. It can accomplish certain tasks when using a tablet, while using the application with a smartphone will turn your device into a glorified controller of sorts.

Tablet users can create jams, as well as collaborate on them. It’s also possible to share, work together and insert...

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (Bluetooth SIG) announced Bluetooth 5 during the summer of 2016 and then towards the end of that year the new specification was officially ratified and we started to see Bluetooth 5 appear in hardware, first in development boards and then in consumer devices, most notably the Galaxy S8.

Last month I got hold of a couple of Bluetooth 5 enabled nRF52840 development boards from Nordic Semiconductor. Using these I was able to test...

We all have our own reasons for loving Android, ranging from our favourite OEMs design language to a great feature that can’t be found elsewhere, or perhaps just a great value price point. This is mostly thanks to some healthy competition and a sprinkling of strong product diversity. But this isn’t just true for hardware, Android software can be just as diverse, as OEMs attempt to put their own spin on things in a bid to stand out. Some more successfully than others, it has to be said.

Love them or loathe them, various OEM skins have enhanced and even innovated enough on stock Android to even become incorporated as key features in future versions. Despite the odd disaster, on the whole...
