Google Plans to re-enter China with a special app store for Android devices and by extending Android Wear to wearables in China.

"Google is prepping a special China app store for Android devices and extending its Android Wear software for wearable devices there. The moves will re-establish Google as an Internet services provider in mainland China that stores user data locally and complies with government censorship requirements. It marks a new chapter in Google’s relationship with China after it publicly feuded with the government in 2010, which some Googlers say was a big mistake."

After a five year absence, Google expects to return shortly to mainland China to sell mobile services, a move with ramifications for the future of Android and a host of Chinese companies.As early as this fall, the company hopes to get Chinese government approval to distribute a special China ...

If this is the fingerprint sensor used in the Huawei Nexus, most of you will be pretty happy as the one on the Huawei Mate S is fast.

#Android #Nexus #Huawei
 
If the fingerprint scanner response of the new Huawei Mate S doesn't make you excited for the possibility (cough) of a Huawei Nexus, we don't know what will.

This thing is FAST. You don't even need Smart Lock when you're using this to secure and unlock your phone.

This was also the case for last year's Mate 7, but not many noticed.

Android Pay could launch on September 16th.

According to a leaked Verizon internal memo acquired by Phandroid, Android Pay will launch on September 16th. While Phandroid is confident with their source, I will remind you that nothing is official until Google announces it and as the previous McDonald's leak has shown, things could change.

Chrome has long had the option to “continue where you left off” by restoring tabs when you relaunch Chrome. Now, Chrome is smarter about restoring your tabs more efficiently. Tabs are restored from most to least recently viewed, so you get to see the most important tabs faster. And Chrome will now detect if your computer is running low on resources and stop restoring the rest of your tabs to save you precious memory. You can always click to restore them if you'd like to access them later.

We’ve also introduced another memory-saving technique. Chrome can now detect when a webpage isn't busy with some other task, and use the free time to aggressively clean up old, unused memory. In practice we found that this reduced website memory usage by 10% on average, but the effect is even more dramatic on complex web apps. With Gmail, for example, we can free up nearly a quarter of the memory used by the tab.

Google has updated the Knowledge Graph with more health conditions and downloadable PDFs for the health conditions.

"Today the search giant says it will soon have over 900 health conditions included in its Knowledge Graph offering “quick at-a-glance info on symptoms, treatments, prevalence, and more.” Google says this more than doubles the amount of health conditions it included at the start. Google’s health information Knowledge Graph is getting smarter in other ways too."

Do you like the Nexus 6, but think it was too expensive? Well, you're in luck because Amazon is selling the 32GB Nexus 6 for $350 and the 64GB model for $400. That's a great deal for a pretty good unlocked phone and it will be getting updated to the latest Android version—Android Marshmallow.

Deal hunters, get an early start on this one. Amazon's US store has slashed the unlocked Nexus 6 price by another $150 (in addition to the $150 price cut a... by Michael Crider in Deals, News, Nexus 6

Yes price is a big player. I was very interested in the Huawei Nexus until I saw the rumored price of the LG Nexus and i'm also guessing the Huawei Nexus is going to priced out of my liking.

This is big! With the latest update to Google Translate on Android Marshmallow, translation is built in system wide. What does that mean? It means all you have to do is highlight a word by long pressing, then select the translate option from the menu and voilà your word is translated. This will work in pretty much any app, since it's built into the system.

Interesting.

"Now, the TENAA certification didn’t reveal any hardware details, but according to Blass, this LG V10 will feature a 5.7-inch display, Snapdragon 808 processor, 16MP/5MP cameras, micro SD card slot, integrated fingerprint scanner, and that auxiliary (secondary) display we talked about earlier."

Here's a comparison of the latest smartwatches, in case you were going to purchase one and needed to assess the specifications.
 
Comparison: Gear S2, Huawei Watch, Moto 360 v2, ZenWatch 2

Here's a side by side comparison of all 4 smartwatches announced over the past couple days. 

I went with the Huawei Watch.

It's nice to see that Samsung is opening up the Gear S2 to work with Android devices other than Galaxy devices, but at this point I think people are more interested in Android Wear and what it has to offer. Inevitably, Samsung had to support more devices if they wanted to increase potential sales.

That stupid requirement from Samsung is about to change with their new watch, the Gear S2. Samsung has seen the open light and is making this watch (and the Gear S2 Classic) available to all Android devices upon launch (at least 1.5GB RAM and Android 4.4)."

Looking for Gear S2 compatibility outside of Samsung phones? It's here! Samsung is making the Gear S2 and S2 Classic available to all Android phones.

Introduction
Okay maybe that's not all ;).

The technology revolution is something that is constantly changing and more specifically it is the mobile technology revolution that is the driving force today. 

Our phones and tablets do so much more today than we expected it to do 10 years ago, we can do anything from type an email to edit a word document or even turn on the lights in our home these kinds of things just wasn't possible 10 years ago.

We now heavily rely on our mobile devices more than our desktop computers and the industry is constantly improving, we have mobile devices in many form factors: smartphones, tablets, glasses and now watches and we have just scratched the surface...the possibilities are truly endless.

One of the platforms leading this mobile revolution is Android ( with 1 billion device activations), so you can expect to see a lot of Android related posts from me. I'm also a huge Chrome/Chrome OS fan, so expect posts on that as well.

Along with having a passion for technology I also enjoy anything basketball related. 

Some circle suggestions to put me in:
  • Tech Enthusiast (or anything technology, Android or Chrome related)
  • Basketball Fan
