There’s been devices in the past that would try and turn your Android smartphone into a laptop (Motorola Atrix anyone?) but that was back when Android smartphones were severely underpowered. But smartphones have come along way since then and they’re more powerful than ever.
To follow up to the OnePlus 2’s VR launch, OnePlus announced the OnePlus 3 in a virtual space called The Loop but if you didn’t catch the event, all of the details of the new phone are now available.
LG has officially taken the wraps of their latest smartphone the G5 along with some “friends” for it at MWC 2016.
Eight years ago today, Android was officially announced and was the beginning of a new era.
It was also that start of the Open Handset Alliance which united Google, Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony, Motorola, software companies, chip manufacturers and some mobile carriers.
Android was shown as an open-source alternative to who at the time was the top mobile operating systems, Windows Mobile from Microsoft, Blackberry by RIM, Symbian OS by Nokia and the just few months before early days of iOS by Apple.
Google made a lot of announcements today (some of which were leaked earlier) from two new Nexus phones to brand new Chromecasts.
For those of you who missed the event, here you go:
Android M will now officially be known as Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Google revealed the next version with the unveiling of a new Android statue in front of the iconic Building 43 at their Mountain View campus. Some people were speculating that Android M might have been called Android 6.0 Milkshake, as indicated by the watch face that was on the watch that Google’s VP of Engineering, David Burke was wearing back at Google I/O 2015.
