Game Developers Should Be Looking Towards Emerging Markets for the Next Massive Hit

The mobile market is on fire thanks in part to an influx of new users firing up phones and tablets. While some of those first timers are the very old and the very young, a huge number are people in emerging markets just now gaining access to both tech and the ability to connect. It can be argued that gaming is driving mobile growth across the globe. The number of mobile gamers worldwide is expected to increase to 1.82 billion in 2017 according to Newzoo, and mobile has gobbled up a quarter of the total gaming market, which is [...]

Verizon Announces LG Lancet Windows Phone

It’s here, and it’s cheap: Verizon has officially announced the long-rumored LG Windows Phone called the Lancet. Despite the fact that the images of the phone on Verizon’s website seem limited to renders, we now know the device’s specs and pricing. While there’s nothing too particularly exciting under the hood, the phone is a relative bargain at a full price of $120.

Will the Lancet be capable of running Windows 10 Mobile? We’ll know later this year…

Analyst Says iPhone 6s Will Feature 2GB RAM, Rose Gold Case

When it comes to predicting the future of our gadgets, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is usually one to watch, since his predictions tend to come true—or pretty close to it. For weeks, he’s been making predictions about Apple’s efforts to make a new version of the iPhone 6, casually referred to as the iPhone 6s, and Tuesday is no different.

The new iPhone 6s might continue with Apple’s trend of gold obsession.

According to Kuo, as reported by a post on AppleInsider, the new iPhone 6s will [...]

1st Nintendo Smartphone Game Slated for Late 2015

Nintendo outlined some more specifics in its plans to begin developing smartphone and tablet games on Friday, announcing via its latest financial results briefing that the first such title would hit before the end of this calendar year. We can also expect to see a total of five games by March of 2017.

Yup: five games in a little under two years.

That’s not amazing in terms of output! But, it also seems to signal a commitment on Nintendo’s part to making sure that it doesn’t just pump out shovelware that no one will want. [...]

More Evidence of an LG Windows Phone Appears

In the wake of yesterday’s cool Windows 10 Continuum feature news from Microsoft Build, it might be interesting to find out as much about cool new Windows Phones as possible. After all, with Continuum, Windows Phones can become full Windows computers as long as they’re hooked up to a monitor and keyboard. As such, I’m very interested to learn that more evidence of a new Windows Phone from LG has popped up on the web.

WinBeta reported on the phone on Monday, having found listings for the device under LG’s Open Source Code [...]

Google Sees Disappointing Nexus 6 Sales

It seems that I wasn’t the only Nexus fan disappointed by Google’s decision to make a phablet—Google CFO Patrick Pichette told shareholders that Nexus 6 sales were lower than expected after its debut late last year.

According to 9to5Google, Pichette said that the Nexus line of devices has fallen this year, which has more to do with the Nexus 6’s poor performance when compared to its predecessors:

“Other revenues grew 23 percent year over year to $1.8 billion, but were down 2 percent quarter over quarter, driven really by [...]
