Lenovo carries on the 4GB trend

screenshot-190Asus announced a new line of phones earlier this year, the pinnacle of which carried 4gb of RAM. Now Lenovo has announced a with a new phone called the K80 that combines both 4gb of RAM alongside a massive 4,000mAh battery. 

The device has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 64-bit 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization and 64GB of internal storage. Measuring at only 8.5 millimetres thin, which is only a hair thicker than the iPhone 6 Plus at 7.1-millimetre the have to give kudos to Lenovo for accomplishing this with such a large battery.

Lenovo is releasing the phone in China on April 30th and will sell it for just $290, an incredible value for the specs. We don’t know if the device is scheduled for a release here in the UK. Perhaps we will see a new Motorola or Nexus device with the same hardware components. Just in time for iPhone 6s to be grabbing headlines?

Google did not pee all over Apple

screen-shot-2015-04-24-at-121719Over the weekend an addition appeared on Google Maps to show Android peeing on its biggest rival in Pakistan, near the city of Rawalpindi. As you could imagine, Google did not mastermind the Android mascot’s depiction.

Google has now apologised for the gaffe in a statement to the Washington Post, saying: “We’re sorry for this inappropriate user-created content; we’re working to remove it quickly.

“We also learn from these issues, and we’re constantly improving how we detect, prevent, and handle bad edits.”

The Android mascot has been removed from the location. A Map Maker account holder was responsible for the sly attack, which was submitted without being reviewed. An investigation will likely follow.
