Google To Release Nexus Tablet Within Six Months?

Speaking with Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera (via), Google chairman Eric Schmidt revealed that the company is looking to release a tablet “of the highest quality” within the next six months.

It’s not clear yet whether Google is actually going to manufacture and sell the tablet on its own, possibly leveraging the recently-purchased Motorola, or pick an OEM like HTC or Samsung to create a “pure” Google tablet under the Nexus brand. Considering history, the latter seems more likely, as that’s what Google has been doing with the Nexus One, Nexus S, and Galaxy Nexus smartphones; however, the first Honeycomb tablet, the Motorola Xoom, also shipped with a “pure”, unmodified Android version and was heavily promoted by Google, without being applied the Nexus moniker. Now that Motorola belongs to Google, the first option doesn’t seem too unlikely.

Schmidt also said that Google is working on improving its voice recognition technology “to do things similar to Siri”, Apple’s voice assistant available on the iPhone 4S which recognizes and responds with natural language, as opposed to other technologies that depend on pre-defined commands.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship.
