It’s time for another Q&A Session here at DL, a feature that we really love to do. This allows you, the readers, a chance to ask our team anything that might be on your mind, whether it be Android related or even somewhat personal.
If you are still stuck on which phone to get your lover for Christmas or what teams you need to bet on in the NFL playoffs, this is the place to ask. We are always blown away by the quality of questions our community comes up with, so let’s have some fun. (more…)
AT&T announced big news this morning, partnering with Rogers Communications to offer U.S. customers the ability to connect to 4G LTE networks while roaming in our neighbor to the north, Canada. The deal actually makes AT&T the first U.S. carrier to offer such a deal, as usually customers are kicked down to HSPA+ networks or 3G.
With a Data Global Add-on package purchased, customers can get 4G LTE in bundles of 120MB for $30/mo, 300MB for $60/mo, and 800MB for $120/mo. It seems pricey, but can you really put a price on international LTE speeds? /sarcasm (more…)
A new piece of info hit the web this weekend, concerning a possible LG-made Nexus 8 tablet with model number V510. If you will recall, the V510 has been going back and forth in the eyes of bloggers who continue to either try and confirm that this is a new Google tablet or debunk it as a LG G Pad 8.3 with LTE connectivity. According to @evleaks’s newest tweet, the V510 is indeed a Google Nexus device. (more…)
Nexus devices including the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and variants of the Nexus 7 were receiving an OTA update last week to build number KOT49E of Kit Kat, Android 4.4.1. The update is now available for Nexus 10 tablet owners, who can either wait for the update to roll out or simply sideload the file using adb. Either way, when you own a Nexus, it’s nice to have options. (more…)
If you watched today’s interview with Motorola’s CEO Dennis Woodside, which was conducted by our buddy MKBHD, you might have heard that the release of the Moto X with wood backs was coming “very soon.” Soon is the worst word ever, given that it actually doesn’t mean anything in terms of when a release will actually happen. Soon could be within a month or even as long much as a few months. Thankfully, @evleaks has everyone’s backs and has took to his Twitter account to show off a couple of newly-leaked photos of these splendid looking devices. (more…)
It was another busy week here at Droid Life, with the early days of the week being filled with crazy Moto X Cyber Monday madness. Going beyond all of the sales taking place across the Interwebz, Google released Android 4.4.1, which then became downloadable for the Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and Nexus 7 tablets. We are thankful because the update brought major improvements for the Nexus 5′s camera, which was seriously struggling before the update.
If you missed any of the week’s top stories, check out all of the highlights below.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
According to a recent report from The Information, who has a source inside of Google, the search giant will continue its reach into the living room with the introduction of Nexus TV. The device is said to be a set stop box, much like a regular Google TV box, but Nexus TV won’t handle any actual TV broadcasts. Instead, the company will stayed focused on delivering the Web and all of its rich content right to your HDTV, much like they are doing with the Chromecast dongle. (more…)
It’s always fun to browse through Kickstarter and find neat projects to fund, and a new one called GlowLytes has caught our attention. It is much like the multi-colored LED bulbs that you can put inside of your house sockets, but these are specifically made to be put outdoors. Once you set up the set of multi-color LED lights, you can control individual bulbs using your Android or iOS device. There are also presets available for special occasions, such as Christmas, 4th of July, and Halloween. It’s a fun and mobile-related way to show off your festive side all year round. (more…)
