Huawei MediaPad M3 Lite with Android 7.0 Nougat coming soon for €329

An affordable duo of Huawei-branded Android tablets was silently introduced in Europe last week, the MediaPad T3 slates. They are now available for purchase for prices starting at €129, a good deal for those looking for their first Android tablet.

However, the MediaPad T3 tablets won’t be the only ones to make their debut on the market this year, as Huawei is readying yet another Android slate.

Not quite the sequel to the MediaPad M3, a Lite version of the tablet recently made a stop at Wi-Fi Alliance where it was granted certification by the regulatory commission.

Sci-fi clicker Spaceplan coming soon to Android and iOS, but you can watch a 40-minute trailer now

Devolver Digital is a well-known publisher of games, but the company rarely activates in the mobile industry. However, when they do launch a mobile game, it’s always something special.

The new title soon to make its way to Android and iOS platforms is called Spaceplan. If the name rings a bell, you’re not mistaken. Spaceplan started as a web-based game, but Devolver Digital claims the mobile version is much better.

Spaceplan is a clicker type of game with a sci-fi theme. Humorously, the publisher claims it’s “based partly on a total misunderstanding of Stephen …

Xiaomi phones not coming to America anytime soon, put your cheap flagship hopes elsewhere

If you are still hoping to buy Xiaomi phones in the USA by official means, you will have to wait indefinitely. In an interview with Global VP Wang Xiang, the exec admitted that US market expansion is still no priority for the smartphone maker.

That’s not particularly pleasant news, for the brand’s handsets become increasingly desirable each year, but users in America and Europe are being left out. Sourcing them from unofficial suppliers remains the only route, which isn’t optimal due to markups, occasional lack of warranty or customer support, and network incompatibility …

Ready your Android phones! A new and improved Apex Launcher is coming in May

If you buy an Android phone and want to install a third-party launcher, there aren’t too many popular choices available in the Google Play Store. It’s either Nova Launcher or Action Launcher 3, although there are a couple of other options that you might want to try out like Arrow Launcher and ADW Launcher 2.

Flexible memory coming to pave the way for bendable phones

A bendable phone is the current Holy Grail of smartphone manufacturers. In order to make such a device possible, the components will have to be flexible. With that in mind, a paper written by scientists at the University of Exeter reveals how a new storage system made from graphene could replace current Flash memory. The material is cheaper and a hybrid combination made of hybrid graphene oxide-titanium oxide can be written to and read from in only five nanoseconds. The hybrid component is only 50 nanometers long and 8 nanometers thick.

Graphene is a thin layer of carbon. How thin? It is …
