Google: We Couldn’t Keep Up With Demand for the Nexus 6

During Google’s investor relations call that took place this afternoon to address their Q4 earnings numbers, CFO Patrick Pichette took a minute to talk about an area of interest to us that they failed to meet demand in – the Nexus 6. Pichette mentioned that while the phone was very well received as a new phone (he actually called it the “Nexus 7″), they had “real issues” and were “unable to secure sufficient inventory” of it to meet demand.  (more…)

Spigen Says This is What the Samsung Galaxy S6 Looks Like

Samsung has become one of the best at keeping its phone designs a secret up until they take the wraps off of them at an official unveiling. They are without a doubt better at it than HTC and Apple. Over the last couple of years, designs for the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S series have floated about before the phones are announced, but few have been credible. So what do we make of the Galaxy S6 cases that popular casemaker, Spigen, has posted to its Amazon sales pages? Well, they have been right in the past when it comes to giving us hints and silhouettes of yet-to-be-announced phones. Are they right again?  (more…)

Samsung: Our New Mobile Devices to Incorporate “New Materials, Innovative Designs”

Like most companies, Samsung, maker of all the things, released their Q4 earnings numbers yesterday (more on those in a bit). While the numbers didn’t exactly impress (earnings in mobile dropped 64% annually, smartphone and tablet shipments declined), we didn’t expect them to. With that said, if you look at their earnings statement, Samsung appears to have some sort of plan to turn things around on mobile with what may be their most drastic changes yet.  (more…)

Chrome Beta 41 for Android Adds Pull-to-Refresh in Pages

Chrome Beta on Android was released moments ago as build 41.0.2272. The update is mostly minor, but does include a new feature that seems like something we could have used long ago – pull-to-refresh at the “top of most pages.” That’s right, now when you are in a web page and want it to reload, you don’t have to go hunting for a refresh button. All you need to do now is pull from the top of the display downwards and you will refresh the page.

To give it a try, grab the update from Google Play or sideload the APK below.  (more…)
