nexus-7-2-review--014

Nexus 7 was always a great option for people out in the market for a new tablet. It offered decent specifications at a relatively cheap price, and the fact that it was always one of the first devices to receive a major software update from Google. That’s not to say that the Nexus 7 didn’t have any worthwhile competition, it certainly did, and perhaps that’s what has compelled Google to discontinue Nexus 7.

We recently reported that T-Mobile stopped selling the Sony Xperia Z3 despite the fact that it has merely been six months since this flagship handset arrived on the market. A representative for the carrier did confirm back then that T-Mobile will no longer be sold by the carrier, but it appears that T-Mobile has changed its mind. Xperia Z3 is once again available for purchase through Magenta, it has returned to the carrier with a significant price reduction.

Nokia_Sign_Copper_WideEarlier this week there was a report out of China that supposedly quoted Nokia China’s president who “confirmed” the company’s plans to return to handset manufacturing. This was somewhat exciting news as it has been speculated that this could mean we could look forward to some Nokia-made Android handsets.

Unfortunately it seems that the report is not true. According to an official statement released by Nokia, “Nokia notes recent news reports claiming the company communicated an intention to manufacture consumer handsets out of a R&D facility in China. These reports are false, and include comments incorrectly attributed to a Nokia Networks executive. Nokia reiterates it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets.” Read full post →Nokia Denies Plans Of Returning To Handset Manufacturing


starbucksIf you thought that Starbucks’ drinks were always a tad expensive, then today would have been a great day to capitalize on the company’s network outage. It seems that due to the systems going down, the coffee chain’s point-of-sales system was affected as well which forced the company to give away free drinks.

It was initially thought that it was a localized issue but it turns out that not only did it affect Starbucks outlets nationwide, but it even affected outlets all the way in Canada. Safe to say that patrons are pretty pleased with the situation, although those who bought their drinks right before the system went down are probably a little miffed they missed out on the freebie.

att-lumia830The Microsoft Lumia 830 was announced in the later part of 2014 but it looks like its successor, the rumored Lumia 840 could be getting ready for an announcement soon. This is according to a report from NPU who claims that their source has informed them that this is because Microsoft has hastened the launch of the Lumia 830’s successor.

It has also been noted that the handset has been discontinued in the Indian market which also hints that a successor is imminent. It is unclear if other markets that the Lumia 830 is in has discontinued the model as well, but so far it looks like India is the only one. It is expected that once stock in the stores has been depleted, it will not be restocked so as to make way for the new model.

cod releaseA couple of days ago Activision posted the first teaser to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Based on what we saw, it certainly looks like it’s shaping up to be a rather exciting game, but the question is when might we be able to get our hands on it? Well assuming the rumors are right, the folks at Kotaku have received an image (see above) which allegedly shows the release date of the game.

The image above is that of pre-order cards that will be handed out to GameStop retail locations this Sunday where it is expected that the first official non-teaser trailer will be released as well. However it should be noted that in the fine print it reads, “Actual platform availability and launch date(s) to be determined.” Read full post →Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Release Date Leaked, Set For 6th November


whatsapp-logo-newWhile users on Android have enjoyed WhatsApp’s voice calling feature for a while now, there are still some platforms that have yet to receive the feature. It was only earlier this week that the feature rolled out to iOS and the good news is that if you’re a BlackBerry user, it looks like the feature is now available for you guys as well.

According to reports, the latest update for WhatsApp for BlackBerry 10 (which is version 2.12.1.12) will bring about the voice calling feature. The feature will be the same as its iOS and Android counterparts so there’s no difference here, although there might be some slight difference in its UI, but for the most part it should remain the same.
