There's a new rumor in Android-land. This one comes from the Samsung camp. Supposedly Sammy's next flagship, the Galaxy S6 will not only come with a slide-sloping YOUM designed display similar to the Galaxy Edge, it will also include a unibody aluminum chassis.
Further details revealed in the leak suggest that the "curves" of the display will show up on both sides. Additionally, they will supposedly be less pronounced than the curves seen on the Edge. The reason for this is to avoid the dual-edged panel causing a negative effect on the grip ergonomics of the device.
The final intel that came along with this report indicates that the Galaxy S6 will not come in two versions like the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge. Instead the S6 will simply include the slightly curved display as its primary design. Additionally, this rumor corroborated earlier reports suggesting that Samsung will do the usual, North American version with a Snapdragon (810 in this instance) and International version with an Exynos (7 Octa in this instance).
The above image is just an artist's fan render, but it could be a close approximation of the final look, if these rumors prove true.

Even though Google just cranked out the 5.0.1 version of Android Lollipop within a week or two of the operating system's first launch, that doesn't mean they are resting on their laurels. According to the latest leaked intel, the next big update for Android is not only planned, it's already in the works and will likely launch sometime in the first quarter of 2015. In fact, reports indicate that the plan is to launch it by the end of February.
Here's the full changelog according to the leaked intel:
- Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
- General improvements in system stability
- Improved RAM management
- Fixes for sudden app closures
- Improved battery management
- Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
- Issues with wireless connections fixed
- Problems with Okay Google function solved
- Notifications problems solved
- Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
- Other improvements and changes
- Changes in the Material Design color palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)
As you can see, this is more than just a "maintenance" update with a few bug fixes. Not only does it eliminate several flaws which have cropped up, it also adds a few new features as well. We'll keep you posted if anything more corroborative comes forward.

Android fans rejoice! Blizzard's super-addictive digital card game, Hearthstone, rolls out on Android tablets! Hearthstone's been out on PC and iOS for a while, but it's a newcomer amongst the Android ranks. The game is really designed for the touchscreen experience, so that's definitely a huge plus for Android owners.
Hearthstone is currently only available in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, but there are plans for a worldwide rollout in the coming days and will be available on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.
Unfortunately, not all Android tablets will be supported: you'll need a tablet with at least a 6" screen and 1GB of RAM that runs Android 4.0 or higher.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is one of Sammy's most impressive and successful devices, especially in the phablet category, but that doesn't mean it can't get better. In fact, Android 5.0 lollipop will be a nice upgrade to the Note 3. Luckily, it may have just started rolling out.
A user in Vietnam is reporting he received the update, but we haven't seen reports of it hitting any other device yet. Perhaps this was just a fluke, or perhaps it is the beginning of an initial rollout. We will keep an eye out for more intel, but if it is the beginning of the rollout, we expect it to push out to more regions across the globe sometime in the first quarter of 2015.

Here's an interesting deal for anyone who was considering getting a Nexus 9 LTE Edition on AT&T. They are offering a $100 bill credit if you purchase the LTE version of the Google Nexus 9. The complicated part is that AT&T isn't selling the device through their own retail store.
The way you get the credit is to buy the LTE version on the Google Play Store and then simply activate it with a signed two year contract on AT&T's network. After that you will get a $100 credit added to your account. Here's the statement from AT&T:
Here's a link to the Google Play Store if you want to take advantage of this offer: Nexus 9 32GB LTE Indigo Black - Devices on Google Play
Customers can receive a $100 bill credit when they activate their Nexus 9 with a two-year agreement at an AT&T company-owned store. The Nexus 9 is certified to work on the network with the nation's strongest LTE signal, making this a perfect pairing.
