Tonight’s news are quite interesting and exciting, but only for those who can benefit from them. We have stories about Glass, Motorola and Huawei. Read on for more!
Google Glass features notifications from compatible apps. These offer great functionality, but we sure wish we could also see notifications from non-supported apps. This will become possible tomorrow, with an update that will bring Notification Sync.
Those of you lucky enough to be rocking Google Glass can wait until tomorrow to get these new features. The rest of us can stick to Android Wear, which offers similar functionality. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s MyGlass update and check the video below to see what to expect.
Opinion: It seems unreal to me that it took this long for Google Glass to get such basic functionality. We do suppose it’s better late than never, though.
Motorola makes awesome smartphones, but its presence in the tablet market has been completely absent. They haven’t released a tablet in a long time, something that seems to be changing very soon.
Lenovo, Motorola’s new owner, is planning to release some new tablets under Moto’s brand. The news was revealed by Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing, making this much more than a rumor. Will they make it this time around?
Opinion: The tablet market may be stalling a bit, but Motorola has recognition and power to go against the best. That may be what Lenovo is betting on, and it’s not necessarily a bad technique… just a risky one.
Huawei is known for its affordable smartphones, but it’s really outdoing itself with the release of the Honor Holly. This device is set to launch in India starting October 16th for just Rs. 6999 (or about $118 USD). What do you get for such a frugal price point?
Well, specs include a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.3 Ghz MediaTek processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 8MP/2MP cameras and a 2000 mAh battery. This device is even able to compete with India’s recently launched Android One devices, which says a lot about its stunning price.
Opinion: This is definitely not a bad deal for about $118 USD. I still would probably choose the Moto E, but this is a great deal if Motorola is not your manufacturer of choice.
