The folks at Android Central have had their hands full the past few weeks with the ongoing coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S5 as it gets closer to officially being available in stores. Everything from pre-order dates, right down to complete teardowns and scrutinizing of the display has been covered thus far. If Samsung devices aren't really your thing though, there's also been plenty of coverage for the brand new HTC One M8 that got unveiled late March at events in New York City and London. If you've not read the full on review yet, you can check it out right here.
Although we're into April now, BlackBerry on March 28th reported their Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results for Fiscal 2014, which led to a lot of dicussion about where they stand as a company and where BlackBerry CEO John Chen wants to take them. If you're not interested in financials, there's been plenty of other stuff happening as well. A early build of BlackBerry 10.3 leaked out, BlackBerry won an injunction against Typo, which ultimately ceases sales of the BlackBerry-style keyboard for iPhone and finally, after BlackBerry CEO John Chen laid down the law for leakers, the CrackBerry team has been taking a look back at some of the best leaks of years gone by.
While the iPhone 6 rumors continue over at iMore, there were a few other things on the agenda as well. Most notably, Macworld / iWorld 2014 took place and Rene and Peter were on hand to attend the events. There was plenty of new gear on display, plenty of new apps to check out and over the course of the event, plenty of podcasts were recorded. Some great coverage for those unable to attend and certainly worth checking out. The end of March also marked the 6-month anniversary of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c release and with that, the iMore team took some time out to revisit the devices in their 6-months later reviews.
Over at Smartwatch Fans, Google gave folks plenty to buzz about with their announcement of Android Wear. To go along with the actual Android Wear announcement, Motorola announced the Moto 360, LG unveiled their G Watch and folks such as Fossil, ASUS and more have noted to be working with Android wear. It was so much to handle, there had to be a special Android Wear, Smartwatch Fans and Android Central podcast just to cover it all. On top of all that, we have some very special plans to put in place on Smartwatch Fans in the weeks and months ahead. Would love to spill the beans on this, but you'll just have to wait and see!
Windows Phone Central:
This week, the folks at Windows Phone Central are at Microsoft’s Build 2014 dev conference to cover the massive event. Much of the focus for the past weeks has been on Windows Phone 8.1 and its eventual arrival on phones but before that happens, it'll have to make a stop at the Developer Preview Program and that appears to be set for April 14th. If you're looking for all the latest Windows Phone news from Build, head on over to the Windows Phone Central Build 2014 page and get yourself caught up.
