I posted up the newest images of the Blackberry Venice this morning, thinking it had a substantial amount of hype surrounding it. I now know that I underestimated said hype. You are all crazy in love with the idea of a Blackberry keyboard attached to a Blackberry phone that runs what appears to be mostly-stock Android. I can’t say I fully understand the need for such a device in 2015, now that on-screen keyboards are as good as they are today, but hey, nostalgia is a thing, a real thing.
So, because I need to see the actual numbers that prove this isn’t just a few select fanboyistic droolers who love sliders known as the Blackberry Venice, it’s time for a poll. I need to know – are you really interested in the Blackberry Venice? Like, really really?
A soak test is rolling out to the Moto X (2nd Gen) on Verizon, bringing what could be a very important update for current owners. Still to this day, the Moto X (2nd Gen) does not feature simultaneous voice and data, so it is possible that this soak test will be implementing that feature. (more…)
What’s it like to use an Android Device on iOS, through an iPhone 6? We paired up a Moto 360 (yes, it works) and took it for a spin this morning to find out.
As you can imagine, the experience isn’t as fully featured as it is on Android. You don’t have access to all of your favorite 3rd party Android Wear apps from Google Play, because well, this is iOS and the Apple Appstore, not Google Play. It’s probably unlikely that Apple is going to let Android Wear apps show up or be available for install to an Android Wear watch any time soon either, so yeah, that’s just a part of the deal that Google likely understood going in.

An update for the Zoe app, made by HTC for One device owners, is now available to download on Google Play. Inside the update, which is rather large in terms of additions, users can now create highlight videos locally, with nothing going up into the cloud. (more…)
We have IFA all this week, so Android fans best be ready for a ton of fun announcements from companies such as Motorola, Huawei, and Samsung. We sort of already know what to expect from each player, mostly being Android Wear-related, but we are also getting close to Google’s likely unveiling of two Nexus devices.
The Q&A Sessions are your chance to ask us anything that might be on your, whether it be Android-related, non Android-related, and everything in between.
Shoot those questions below in the comment section, and then on Friday, our team will choose the best ones to tackle.
To see all of our previous Q&A’s, check them out here.
The official companion app for Google’s OnHub WiFi Router, is now available on Google Play for new owners to download. The app is what makes your new router so “smart,” offering you the ability to set priority devices, run networks tests, and share your network name and password with friends. (more…)
Google just announced that Android Wear had come to iOS, while also introducing the Apple users of the world to this concept called choice. But along with that announcement, they mentioned that only the LG Watch Urbane, plus a bunch of soon-to-be-released watches were capable of working with iOS at this time, not any older Android Wear devices like the Moto 360. That (unsurprisingly) bummed a number of you out.
To make sure that Google wasn’t fibbing on us a bit, we decided to see if we could pair a Moto 360 with an iPhone on the new Android Wear iOS app. Turns out, it worked! Look! (more…)
The Blackberry Venice, a phone coupled with a slideout physical keyboard and mostly-stock Android, has fanboys of tech giggling like little boys who found their penis for the first time. It’s a keyboard! Like, the ones from back in the day on terrible smartphones that had good keyboards, but there is this thing called Android with it too! BEST. OF. ALL. WORLDS. I loved 2005!
Seriously, though, I haven’t seen this level of nerd hype since…I got nothing. But yeah, it’s everywhere right now, especially thanks to a massive leak out of Tinhte. (more…)
