HTC launches One M9+ in India, One E9+ also makes its debut in the country

20

HTC is betting on its quad-HD devices — the One M9+ and One E9+ — to counter the Galaxy S6 in India, which is currently available in the country for ₹49,900.

The One M9+ is scheduled to go on sale in India from May 3, with pricing at ₹52,500. Considering that HTC isn't going to make the One M9+ available in Western markets, it makes sense for the Taiwanese vendor to launch the handset in several Asian countries. At this stage, there's no word as to when the standard One M9 will make its way to the country.

Here are the Android 5.1 OTA update links, and how to use them

181

Now that Android 5.1 (still Lollipop) has been officially announced with a few new features and presumably a bunch of bugfixes, it's time for the updates to begin. As always, that starts with Nexus devices. And that means we can speed the updates along a little bit, if we're so inclined.

If you're the kind of nerd who doesn't mind a little sideloading or factory image action, go ahead and bookmark this page. We'll update it as the links roll in. Be sure to check your software versions before starting. And if you need help, hit up our Nexus forums!

Why your next Chromebook should have a touch screen

35
Android apps on Chrome

A slew of Android apps are coming to Chrome, and they are all designed to be touched.

The web isn't very touch-friendly. I've used a Chromebook Pixel as my primary laptop for years, and I can say with authority that websites and web apps are designed for a mouse and keyboard. That makes sense, because for 20 years we've been using computers with a mouse and keyboard to surf the web. Change comes slow across an entire ecosystem like the Internet.

Things are slowly changing, with companies like Google and Apple making their front-end for online services more touch friendly. Today's modern smartphones and tablets make for a pretty good web experience even when we need to use our fingers to make things happen. But that's not the only reason why you'll want a touch screen on your next Chromebook.
