Looking for a gaming laptop? The new Razer Blade is looking mighty good. OnePlus is tasking its upcoming Lollipop update. Meanwhile, Motorola will soon be making Lenovo money.
Razer’s Blade computers are known to be among the best gaming laptops around. They also happen to look amazing, making for very enticing products to buy, even if they are not cheap. Things can always be improved, though, and that is what Razer did with their latest announcement.
The company’s new Razer Blade will come with double the RAM at 16 GB, and both the Intel CPU and the NVIDIA GPU have been upgraded to the latest iterations. These would be the Intel Core i7-4720HQ clocked at 2.6 GHz and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 970M.
In terms of aesthetics, the computer looks just like its predecessors. And it sports the same 3200x1800p, 14-inch display. The price starts at $2199 and it will be released come February 16th at Microsoft Stores.
Opinion: It has been my dream to get a Razer Blade. The gamer inside of me really wants it. Will this be my next computer? Maybe… it’s pretty pricey, though.
OnePlus One users are in for a treat. The company has been working hard on the upcoming Android 5.0 Lollipop update. It should be coming soon enough, but that is not really what we are here to talk about today.
OnePlus has shown us a quick teaser of a OnePlus One running Android 5.0. All you get to see is the Flappy Bird-like Easter egg game that comes with the new software. Not much, but definitely enough to get us excited!
Opinion: Also, is it me or is that music not very fitting with the video? It seems a bit… sensual!
Lenovo spent a hefty amount of cash buying Motorola from Google. $2.91 billion, to be exact. But the Chinese company is looking to make its money back rather quick. The company is taking Motorola on new ventures and numbers are adding up to be successful.
Motorola shipped 10 million smartphones last year, and it’s estimated the acquisition will become profitable in 12-18 months. That is not bad at all!
Opinion: For the most part, I am glad to see Lenovo taking ownership of Motorola. These guys actually want to push it forward and make it more successful. Not that Google didn’t, but we all know they were mostly interested in the patents.
