Cyanogen, the company behind the CyanogenMod open source operating system, is today announcing a rebranding, which will take it further away from its hacker-inspired roots and make it more mainstream than before. The new branding ditches the Android mascot logos and abundance of cyan for cleaner fonts and a simpler approach. It's a better, more mature look for a company that has shifted away from just making tools for hackers and has software found on devices anyone can buy. In addition to the new branding effort, Cyanogen is partnering with Qualcomm to develop software for its Reference Design (QRD) products coming out later this year.   more...

Lenovo is focusing on the camera for its latest smartphone: the Vibe Shot. While it's late to the game after Samsung and Nokia have both experimented with smartphones that look more like dedicated cameras, Lenovo thinks it has its own solution.

Lenovo is aiming to appeal to camera enthusiasts with a physical camera button that includes 2-stage shutter release to activate autofocus when it's pressed halfway.   more...

Sony finds itself in a peculiar situation. The Japanese company that has always had a smartphone at the head of its portfolio of mobile devices all of a sudden names a tablet, the new 10-inch Z4 Tablet, as its most advanced device. It has the new cap-less waterproof USB port. The latest Snapdragon 810 processor. The high-resolution display. The impossibly thin design. It runs the newest version of Android and it supports Sony's PS4 Remote Play. It's everything you might expect the Xperia Z4 to be, but it measures 10 inches. Where is the new flagship smartphone?   more...

SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea flouted United Nations resolutions on Monday by launching two Scud-type ballistic missiles toward the sea between the Korean Peninsula and Japan, as the United States and South Korea started their annual joint military drills. The two missiles, believed to be Scud-C missiles, took off from near Nampo, a coastal city southwest of Pyongyang, the North Korean capital, and flew across the peninsula before crashing into the sea off the North's east coast, officials at the South Korean Defense Ministry said. The two projectiles flew about 490 kilometers, or about 300 miles, they said.   more...

The Xperia Z3 is the pinnacle of Sony's smartphone range and has reigned in that position for an unusually long time for the Japanese company: a whole six months! A Z4 successor might have been expected today at MWC, but instead Sony is looking lower down the price range with the introduction of the Xperia M4 Aqua. This 5-inch Android Lollipop device looks and feels remarkably similar to the Z3, which is no accident. Sony is "rebooting the mid-range" by trickling down the features and aesthetics from its high-end phones to more affordable price levels.   more...

Coming in June with a Snapdragon 810 processor, Microsoft Office apps, and an impossibly thin profile Announced at Mobile World Congress a year ago, the 10-inch Xperia Z2 Tablet remains one of the thinnest and lightest tablets around, but now it has a successor that steps things up a notch. The new Xperia Z4 Tablet matches the iPad Air 2's 6.1mm thickness while being notably lighter at just 393g for its LTE model. It's still waterproof, it still lasts an awfully long time, and of course it runs the latest version of Android, Lollipop.   more...

Microsoft's Office strategy has been fascinating to witness over the past year. After partnering with Dropbox to integrate a rival cloud storage service into Office, Microsoft then decided to make Office free for iOS and Android users. At the same time, the software has been aggressively bundling Office with low-cost tablets and laptops running Windows. The next step is battling Google in its backyard: Office on Android. After releasing a finger-friendly version of Office for Android tablets recently, Microsoft is looking to Android tablet makers to bundle the software on machines. Sony is one of the first to bundle Office on its latest Android tablet, the Xperia Z4.   more...
