Holo Text Clock claims to make you look at a time in a different way. It does, except it’s a way that’s largely identical to what’s already offered by QLOCKTWO.

The crew at Mobile Syrup have released images that they believe to be the Nexus 5 for Telus. While it definitely looks like the Nexus 5 from leaked shots that have been floating around, we’re still not convinced they’re the real deal. In looking through device images on the Telus website, there really aren’t any that look like these. Most phones feature a face-on view — which we see here — but nothing much beyond that. That makes us wonder why there is a shot of the device in. Opens Up Pre-Orders For The Kindle Fire HDX And HDX 8.9

No big surprise, but news that is long overdue. According to Android Police, the newest version of the Play Store will feature slide-out navigation, rather than the top-right menu housing everything.

The Touchless Controls feature on the Moto X is unique and game changing.  While some have concerns about a phone that’s.
