Black & White (panda) Google Pixel 2 XL is now back in stock


In early October, when Google started taking pre-orders for
its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones, the Kinda Blue and Black & White variants of the handsets went out of stock fast. Now, while the Kinda Blue
Pixel 2 remains out of stock, the Black & White (aka panda) Pixel 2 XL can
finally be ordered again from Google Store, at least in the US.

 

The not so great news is that Google can only ship the panda
Black & White 2 XL in 3-4 weeks (64 GB model), or 2-3 weeks (128 GB model).
Thus, if you’re placing an order today, you may not receive your panda phone before
December …


Nokia 2 announced: Stock Android, solid 2-day battery life, ultra-affordable price tag

HMD and Nokia just unveiled the latest affordable device in its device lineup, the Nokia 2. What makes it a noteworthy entrant? Let’s break those specs down and see what the fuss is all about.
Ticking inside the Nokia 2 is the Snapdragon 212, a 1.2GHz chipset comprising four ARM Cortex-A7 cores. Although it’s a rather humble chipset, the Snapdragon 212 seems like the perfect match for the Nokia 2: aside from being extremely affordable and LTE-ready, the real ace up its sleeve is its exceptional power efficiency. Couple that one with the large, 4,100mAh battery …

Kinda Blue Google Pixel 2 is kinda really out of stock


Google started taking pre-orders for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2
XL on October 5, almost immediately after announcing the two new phones. On the
same day, the Black & White (panda-like) version of the Pixel 2 XL went out

color, while Kinda Blue is a Pixel 2 exclusive color. With both now out of
stock, at the moment you can only order the Pixel 2 in Just Black and Clearly

All OnePlus 5 models go out of stock, is the OnePlus 6 coming soon?

The OnePlus 5 is one of our top choices for an unlocked phone: the $480 phone looks and feels like a flagship, has incredibly zippy performance, a very good camera and solid battery life, but if you try to buy it now in the United States you will not be able to.
All OnePlus 5 models are now out of stock in the US and in other markets availability is very limited as well, so… does this mean we are getting the new OnePlus 6 soon? Or OnePlus 5T?
Last year, OnePlus unveiled its flagship OnePlus 3 in the middle of June 2016, and followed up with …

BlackBerry's shares moving to the New York Stock Exchange on October 16th

In what can be interpreted as another sign of BlackBerry’s turnaround, the company announced today that it is moving the listing of the company’s shares from NASDAQ to the New York Stock Exchange. The switch will take place on October 16th and the company’s symbol will change from the current BBRY to BB. This should make BlackBerry more visible to the investor community.

The announcement comes days after BlackBerry reported a net profit of 5 cents a share for its fiscal second quarter. Unlike the company’s glory days, the company no longer manufactures handsets. Instead, BlackBerry licenses …

Cook: Our products are not only for the rich; analyst sees big drop in Apple's stock after tomorrow

Some people complain that Apple manufacturers devices for the rich and wealthy, and that as a result, they are priced out of purchasing Apple products. But if you ask Apple CEO Tim Cook, he will disagree. Speaking to Fortune, Cook points out that an Apple iPad and an Apple iPhone can be purchased for less than $300 each.  “And so these are not for the rich,” said the executive. The Chief Executive also pointed out that with an active installed base of over 1 billion products, Apple couldn’t be manufacturing just for the rich since there aren’t that many rich people in the world. Cook also …

Best 2017 phones that run stock or near-stock Android

So, you’re on the market for a stock Android device? We understand, the experience is unlike any other… and that’s a pretty double-edged sword.
On one hand, we have the simplicity and the no-frills experience that Google has envisioned in the first place. Although the pack of Android manufacturers are upping their game with each and every year, it’s hard for a custom Android skin to beat Google’s vanilla Android on the same hardware.
On the other hand, it’s quite easy to deem stock Android as boring or even dead due to the simple …

Meet the Xiaomi Mi A1: an affordable mid-ranger with stock Android and fancy dual camera

A few days ago, we reported that Xiaomi is planning to announce an entirely new lineup of phones on September 5. Based on the teasers released at the time, our guess was that the Chinese manufacturer planned to introduce the next Android One phone, a fruit of its collaboration with Google. 

This has indeed happened, as today, the company unveiled its new Mi A1 model during an event in New Delhi, India. At a first glance, Xiaomi seems to have made the A1 specifically for this particular South Asian market, but the phone maker actually plans to introduce …
