LG Watch Urbane video emphasizes classic design and customizability

LG-Urbane screenshot

We received our first glimpse of LG’s Watch Urbane last week, and we generally liked what we saw. LG’s latest Android Wear offering is what happens when Contemporary and Classic Unite (according to LG), eschewing the need to scream out that it is a smart watch to all and sundry. While there’s no official word on availability just yet, LG has just released a video showing off the Watch Urbane in all its glory, as seen after the break.

As you can see from the video, LG is emphasizing how the Watch Urbane can be worn with a multitude of different straps so long as they are the regular 22mm size. It isn’t long to wait until MWC, where LG’s latest smartwatch will be given the hands-on treatment. If you simply can’t wait for the Watch Urbane to become available, and you already own an LG G Watch R and have some sandpaper handy, you could always take matters into your own hands. If you don’t mind waiting though, you can pre-order the LG Watch Urbane here in gold or silver trim.

Sprint feeling the ‘six appeal’ of the Samsung Galaxy S 6

sprint_six_appeal_samsung_galaxy_s_6_teaser

During the Oscars last night, T-Mobile decided to tease the world with the first glimpse of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S 6. The image has a glowing Galaxy S 6 with the phrase ‘six appeal’ floating above it. Then, earlier today, AT&T introduced the same teaser and the magenta glow was replaced with blue. Another carrier also joined the fun today, too. The image above was provided by Sprint this evening. Once again, the glow has been switched to match Sprint’s yellow.

Now we are waiting for Verizon to start feeling the ‘six appeal.’

Google confirms that a Chromebook Pixel successor is “coming out soon”

Posted by wicked February - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Consumers preparing to purchase a new laptop may want to wait a bit longer as a formidable Chrome OS device is on its way to the market. At the Team Work 2015 event, Renee Niemi of Google confirmed that the Chromebook Pixel will see a successor. Niemi, who works on the productivity teams for Android and Chrome, noted that the new Chromebook Pixel would launch soon. She did clarify that a limited amount of units will be produced as it is a proof of concept. Employees within the company and developers working with Google receive about 85% of units produced.

Here is the quote from Niemi:

“We do have a new Pixel coming out and it will be coming out soon. We will be selling it but I just have to set your expectations: this is a development platform. This is really a proof of concept. We don’t make very many of these — we really don’t. And [...] our developers and our Googlers consume 85% of what we produce. But yet, we do have a new Pixel coming out.”

Among the specifications expected to be included with the Chromebook Pixel successor is a 12.85-inch display (with at least 2560×1700 resolution) and reversible Type-C USB ports. The processor inside is currently unknown; however, chances are that it ends up being some form of Intel Broadwell. And, depending upon the actual release date, Intel Skylake could be used.

Are you excited for the Chromebook Pixel successor? Let us know in the comments.

Chromebook Pixel slated for (modest) refresh

Posted by wicked February - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

The sleek Chromebook Pixel, source of more than a bit of squabbling when it first came out a couple years ago, will be getting a refresh in the near future, it has been confirmed. The upgrade will be a modest one by the looks of it, though all the details on what, exactly, can be expected haven’t yet been revealed. What we do know points toward the need for reasonable expectations: Google makes it clear this is more or less a “proof of concept” device, and it won’t be available on the mass level.

The original Chromebook Pixel was not perfect, but it certainly stood on its own and consumers have been asking if an updated version of the device would be arriving. Confirmation about that came earlier today from Renee Niemi, Director of Android & Chrome and Google for Work, who spoke at Google TeamWork 2015. According to Niemi:

We do have a new Pixel coming out and it will be coming out soon. We will be selling it but I just have to set your expectations. This is a development platform…This is really a proof of concept. We don’t make very many of these—we really don’t. And our developers and our Googlers consume 85 percent of what we produce. But yes, we do have a new Pixel coming out.

Word has it the refreshed Pixel mode will sport the same 12.8-inch 3:2 display and general design, but will feature a USB Type-C port — and, likely, the same similarly high (relative to other Chromebooks) price point topping $1,000 USD, which isn’t surprising given its overall purpose.

Pebble smartwatch with color display surfaces in leak

Posted by wicked February - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Rumor has it a Pebble smartwatch with a color display is inbound, and following nicely along with such speculation is a new leaked image showing what is probably the official update (it has since been pulled, but the image survives). In the leak we see a Pebble wearable with a yellow display, and though the shot is front-facing, preventing us from seeing it all, the wearable’s overall design has been updated. Whether it is the real deal is yet to be seen, but we won’t have to wait long to find out, with Pebble’s event coming up shortly.

The leaked image first surfaced via 9to5Mac, which spotted it on Pebble’s own website (making it pretty solid leak). That image has since been replaced by one featuring a pebble — a lowercase literal fresh-from-the-stream pebble — resting on someone’s wrist. Amusing, and too little too late.

Rumor has it this new color-display Pebble will also be thinner than previous versions, something that can’t be determined either way from the image above; it is also said to be toting battery life akin to that available on the first-gen Pebble, though that is likewise unconfirmed at this point.

Rounding out the speculation is the new Pebble’s innards, which are said to sport a 6-axis gyroscope, a microphone, and a Cortex M4 processor. Also, as previously heard, word has it the software has been revamped with a new design that’ll help it (hopefully) survive in the increasingly sophisticated world of wearables. This includes changes to how it looks, new animations, a timeline view, and more.
