HTC moves Sense Input keyboard onto Google Play

25

Like other parts of HTC Sense 6, the HTC Sense Input keyboard has made its way to Google Play. That means that HTC can now push updates to the keyboard with ease and not have to lean on a full system update just to tweak the keyboard — and that updated can go out to all supporting devices instead of waiting for each device update to be completed and then waiting again for carrier approval.

Hands-on with the AT&T LG G3

LG G3

All the LG G3 you love, with plenty of AT&T piled on for flavor

All of us here at the AC office are pretty much in love with the LG G3. We're not even going to try and deny it, nor should we. This is a damn good phone. It was good when Alex first reviewed it (and that is a must-read) and I was happy when Phil shipped me the AT&T version to have a long hard look at. I've been looking long and looking hard for about a week now, and it's time to put some words on some paper. Or a screen. You know what I mean.

Amazon demands handover of Fire TV website domain

68

Amazon is swinging their Fire TV trademark at a small fan site, FireTVNews.com. This sort of thing isn't uncommon and not entirely unexpected since the word "Fire" is included on Amazon's list of trademarks, but it's still unfortunate for the site owners, and perhaps a little overzealous on Amazon's part to be going after a fansite like that.

European LG G3 gets first firmware update

5

The European LG G3 — the LG-D855 if you want to get technical — has today received its first over-the-air update, landing on firmware version 10e. Unlocked G3s in the UK and parts of Asia, where the D855 is also sold, seem to be first with this update; other countries and carrier variants likely to get the update in the days and weeks ahead. It's not entirely clear what's new in v10e, but the update dialog refers to app updates or "power optimizations" depending on region. In any case, it's still based upon Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and our Euro G3 doesn't seem to have changed too much after applying this latest update.

NVIDIA announces gaming-capable Shield Tablet

NVIDIA Shield Tablet

Pre-orders open today at $299, launching in the U.S. and Canada on July 29th

NVIDIA is expanding its Android-powered device portfolio today with the Shield Tablet, a gaming-focused Android tablet with some seriously impressive specs and features. The Shield Tablet comes in as a spiritual successor to the Tegra Note 7, with the distinct difference that this is part of the Shield family — meaning it is manufactured by NVIDIA instead of a partner and is dramatically more focused on gaming capabilities.

The Shield Tablet is also one of the first devices to run the latest Tegra K1 processor, NVIDIA's latest high-powered chip capable of amazing (by any standard) graphics and processing power. Paired up with 2GB of RAM, the Tegra K1 enables some pretty wonderful gaming at 1920x1200 resolution on its 8-inch display, whether it's a title from Google Play, a Tegra-optimized game from NVIDIA or one being streamed from your PC using GameStream. The Tegra K1 has plenty of headroom left over when playing these games as well, giving you the option of outputting 4K video to capable displays, as well as streaming your gameplay to Twitch.tv and supporting multiplayer gaming with multiple controllers.

To offer the best possible gaming experience, NVIDIA is launching the Shield Tablet with a pair of first-party accessories — the Shield Wireless Controller and Shield Tablet Cover — that combine to help take your mobile gaming to the next level. The Shield Wireless Controller connected to the Shield Tablet over Wifi Direct, offering latency lower than Bluetooth and two-way (headphone and mic) audio, while the Shield Tablet Cover connects to the tablet with magnets and props it up in three different positions depending on how you want to enjoy your games or other content.
