LG G3 Beat brings familiar styling with mid-range specs
7/16/2014 9:12:40 PM

LG tonight announced its expected mid-ranger of the year, and it’s got a familiar name. The LG G3 Beat — that’s its Korean name; in Europe and the CIS it’ll be known as the “LG G3 s” — brings along a 5-inch display at 720p, an 8MP camera — and a lower price. It also carries with it the looks of its big brother, the LG G3. (You can see both in the image above.)

The G3 Beat sports a 2,540 mAh battery — only about 15 percent less capacity than the G3 proper — and is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the same UI.

The G3 Beat will be available July 18 in South Korea. It’ll make its way to Europe at the Commonwealth of Independent States nations (again, as the G3 s) in later weeks, at which time pricing also will be announced.

Hands-on with the HTC Desire 610 for AT&T
7/16/2014 7:29:03 PM

It’s plastic, it’s made by HTC, and we experienced it firsthand at tonight’s AT&T ‘Hands-On.’ Meet the Desire 610.

Just hours after its formal announcement, the HTC Desire 610 made its first stateside appearance this evening at tonight’s AT&T “Hands-On” holiday preview here in New York City. The budget-conscious device, which packs a 4.7-inch qHD display, Snapdragon 400 processor, 8MP camera and LTE connectivity, will arrive on the carrier’s shelves on July 25 for the cool price of $200 with no annual commitment. We spent a bit of time with the 610 and while it doesn’t match the higher-end HTC One M8 in style or functionality, it still packs a hefty punch.

Keyboards on Android Wear can exist, just not like this
7/16/2014 3:55:36 PM

You’ll likely need something other than voice input on your watch — here’s one way it could work

Keyboards on Android Wear smartwatches are just not a good idea. But voice only isn’t the answer either. There’s a middle ground to be found here, and the first developer who figures it out wins.

It didn’t take long to form an opinion regarding Minuum’s attempt at an Android Wear keyboard. It’s bad, I mean really and truly not a good experience. Now, in Minuum’s defense this is basically an Alpha release of a keyboard that has already been released on other, more traditional platforms — phones and tablets. Things like the settings menu being basically unusable can be ignored for this first effort, but the keyboard itself isn’t really going to change because it’s the same keyboard on every other platform Minuum supports. Minuum is probably the closest thing we’ll ever see to a full digital keyboard on such a small display be even a little functional, and that has a lot to do with how insanely good their prediction algorithms are. Their keyboard for regular ol’ Android is pretty great, if you haven’t already checked it out.
