Android 3 aka Gingerbread Details Leaked
Thanks to a tip from XDA member M_T_M, we have learned that Google is not exactly sitting down, patting themselves on the back for the success of Froyo. As it turns out, Google devs are actively working in the next installment of their increasingly popular Android OS. This new version will be known as Android 3.0, codename Gingerbread, and it seems to be fit for mostly high end devices.
According to the article found in the website unwiredview.com, the OS will be designed to put our higher end devices to the test. The minimum requirements for the OS to run properly are along the lines of 1 GHz processors, 512 MB RAM, and a 3.5 inch screen (1280 x 760 of resolution will be an option whenever a device with these screens becomes available). Please keep in mind that these are all minimum specs! So, if you are expecting the next best Android phone to make you a cup of coffee while you are doing your chores, this OS might have enough oomph to do just that.
The details are still scarce but it seems that we should see something made public sometime in October, so keep your eyes peeled.
Please go to the unwiredview to read the full article and for more information.

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device. The Lolliflash is a Lollipop-shaped external flash and the ZenPower is a thin 10,000mAh external battery. In today's video, Jordan shows off the Lolliflash and the ZenPower Accessories. Additionally, ASUS and XDA have teamed up to give away 5...
