Forums Added for the RAZR i and Galaxy S III Mini
The Motorola RAZR i may not exactly stand out at first glance. Sure, the 4.3″ Super AMOLED Advanced edge-to-edge display (PenTile) draws attention to itself thanks to its minuscule bezel. However, the real differences can be found in the internal architecture. The RAZR i is one of the first devices to be based on the Intel Medfield architecture, and it is the first Medfield device to clock in at 2 GHz. Backing up the processor is 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, an 8 MP camera, and a 2000 mAh battery.
The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini also manages to set itself apart. Rather than distinguishing itself by its CPU instruction set, the S III Mini sets itself apart thanks to its relatively small size. Samsung’s new Galaxy S III Mini hopes to offer much of what makes the popular Galaxy S III great, but in a smaller package. Unlike its larger sibling, the S III Mini is powered by the relatively obscure dual-core ST-Ericsson NovaThor U8420 processor clocked at 1 GHz. The processor is backed up by 1 GB of RAM, up to 16 GB of storage, a 4″ WVGA Super AMOLED (presumably PenTile) display, a 5 MP camera, and a 1500 mAh battery. Most importantly, the device ships stock with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

During the Google I/O Keynote, VP of Engineering Dave Burke announced that the Android M Developer Preview will include improved application linking features. Under the current system, Android is limited in its intent system when applications link to other applications, displaying the 'App Chooser' dialog box for the user to select how the link is handled. In the M Developer Preview, developers will be able to add an AutoVerify ability to application links, which is a line of code that verifies the app making...
A few days ago, a leak highlighted Google's foray into the Internet of Things space, and Sundar Pichai has just confirmed it by announcing Project Brillo at Moscone West during Google I/O 2015. Project Brillo is essentially a simple operating system with only the core stack on board, such as the kernel, HAL, connectivity, device administration and BLE. Project Brillo will run on an underlying communications layer called Weave, which will employ standardized scheme to ensure that all connected devices...
Android M has answered the call of battery by adding in a deeper sleep implementation than existing deep sleep. This comes in the form of Doze. The feature make use of the devices sensor to smartly recognize when you have left your device for an extended period. During this period, wakelocks will be minimized. However, you can still continue on receiving higher priority notifications. Needless to say, this does have a tradeoff of not having up to date syncs across...
