    When it launched Android Things back in December, Google announced a handful of hardware partners for its Android-based internet of things operating system, including Intel Edison, NXP Pico and the Raspberry Pi 3. Qualcomm, naturally, wanted in on the action, releasing its own straightforward, if vague, response to the announcement, titled, “Qualcomm Intends to Collaborate with Google… Read More

    LG reveals even more details about the G6 ahead of launch

    LG is doing a downright terrible job keeping the lid on the G6 ahead of its launch at Mobile World Congress in a couple of weeks.

    LG hasn’t been doing a great job keeping a tight lid on the G6. But, then, who can blame them?

The Verge has seemingly gotten its hands on one… Read More
