HTC and LG have started releasing their newest gadgets. All while Google is phasing out yet another service. Stick around for the full report!
We have good news and bad news for you. The good news is the HTC One M9 will be launched this March 16th. The bad news is that this only applies to the Taiwanese market, where HTC happens to call home.
In addition to the release date, this announcement also confirms customers won’t be limited to 32 GB of storage. There will also be a 64 GB version. As for pricing, the 32 GB HTC One M9 will cost NT $21,900, while the 64 GB iteration will cost NT $23,900.
Opinion: While this is really no good news for most of us, it means the HTC One M9 is scheduled for a pretty quick rollout. It likely won’t take long for other markets to start seeing the device, now that Taiwan has welcomed it.
The LG G Flex 2 was one of my favorite devices at CES 2015, so I have been waiting to see how its launch unfolds. Are you a Sprint customer? You may be interested to learn the LG G Flex 2 has just launched on the Now Network.
The device can be had for $504 off-contract or $199.99 on a 2-year contract. You can also opt for buying it on payments for $21 a month.
Opinion: So, who’s buying? $504 is not really a bad deal for a phone of this caliber. Not to mention, it happens to be an amazing conversation starter. I used the original LG G Flex for a while and jsut couldn’t get people off me at bars!
Google Code had a good beginning in a world where developers needed a place to have their projects hosted. The internet has evolved and it seems now developers prefer other services, such as GitHub. Google realizes this fact and has decided to close down Google Code for good.
No more new projectscan be created, starting today. The website will go read-only starting August 24th, and on January 25, 2016, the website will be shut down for good.
Opinion: I mean, it is true that Google Code wasn’t very popular anymore. GitHub seems to be where it’s at. Regardless, the official blog post has all the instruction for migrating your data.
