LG G3 Release Date Possibly Fast Tracked to June

Yesterday, 10:30 AM

Attached File  LG.jpg   8.6K   23 downloads

 

     The release of the upcoming LG G3, which had originally been scheduled for Q3 or Q4 2014, has reportedly been bumped up to June or July, according to an LG executive.   The device is said to sport a Quad-HD resolution screen, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of onboard storage which can be expanded with up to a 64 GB external micro SD card.  The alleged spec sheet for the device has popped up on Sprint's website, and anyone interested in taking a peek can find it HERE.  So what does everyone think?  Will a Quad-HD display be a game changer?  Or will it end up just being a major battery hog with no appreciable difference on a ~5" screen?

PSA - Heartbleed May Affect Your Android Device

14 Apr 2014

By now, anyone with an internet connection who hasn't had their head buried in the sand for the last few days has undoubtedly heard of the Heartbleed bug.  You know, the nasty one that can steal the encryption keys for about 75% of the internet and steal every bit of data contained therein.  Well, your Android device may be vulnerable as well.  Google has stated that while most Android devices are immune to the bug, Android 4.1.1 could be vulnerable to it.  Yahoo reports that Google is sending instructions on how to incorporate a security patch to device manufacturers in the hopes of securing those devices still on 4.1.1.  Those of you that are running devices with 4.1.1 based custom or stock ROMs should click this HERE for more information.

Amazon Announcing Smartphone Soon? - UPDATED 4-15-14

14 Apr 2014

Posted By mjs27541 in DroidRzr News and Reviews

  Attached File  amazon phone.jpg   4.28K   16 downloads  

 

     Hello Fellow Razrians!  I'm honored to be the newest writer for DroidRzr, and hope that I will add to everyone's enjoyment of the site in my own small way.  And maybe help fill your tech trivia banks in the process :lol:.  So without further ado, I humbly present my first story for DroidRzr.com!

 

     Speculation has abounded over the past few months that Amazon may soon be entering the smartphone market.  It would seem that those rumors are a step closer to becoming reality, as the Wall Street Journal has reported that Amazon will be announcing its very first smartphone in the near future.  Citing the ever present "sources who have been briefed on the matter", the Journal reports that Amazon will be announcing the device in June, with a possible ship date sometime in September.  The article doesn't mention hardware, specs, or pricing, but does suggest that the device will ship with a glasses-free 3D screen.  While scant on actual details, we can make educated guesses at some of the features the phone will probably be packing when it ships:

 

- It will most likely run a modified version of Android

- Expect tight integration with Amazon services, particularly it's VOD and Cloud services

- Based on Amazon's history with its "Fire" line of tablets, it will likely pack respectable, mid-range hardware at a very competitive price

 

     These are the most obvious features at which we can make educated guesses, but there are quite a few questions still looming at this point.  Will the phone launch for all U.S. carriers or be limited to a select group?  Will they be unlocked and dev-friendly, or will they be locked down tighter than anything Samsung's Fort Knox could bring to the table?  Will Amazon only make the device available through Amazon.com, or will it be offered through the carriers with a subsidy?  Or will Amazon offer special financing as they have recently with the Fire HDX tablet?  Clearly, there is far more left to be answered at this point, and expect the web to be burning up with gossip and speculation as we inch closer to the rumored June announcement.  

 

Source: PCWorld.com, originally reported by The Wall Street Journal

 

UPDATE - BGR is reporting to have pics of a prototype device, although the phone itself is covered by some sort of case, making it difficult to surmise any actual design features.  The phone will reportedly pack 2 GB of memory, a 4.7 inch 720p display, and an unknown Snapdragon chipset.  Hardly top tier hardware, but if this info pans out, Amazon may end up selling this thing for a better price than anyone previously anticipated.  The pics can be found HERE.

Here's the skinny -
There are only a few of requirements to be involved in this giveaway.
 
1. Be a Member of DroidRzr.com
2. State in a post in this thread that you want to be included
3. Commit to USE the device and be involved in activities on the site regarding RaspberryPi
 
That's it !  Simple as Pi......
 
( Fine Print - Prizes in this giveaway have been donated personally by Livinginkaos - No funds have been provided by DroidRzr.com.  Staff is eligible for entry )
 
Also, while it is not required, If you enjoy DroidRzr.com, I would encourage you to donate to help support the site so we can keep things like this popping up !
 
UPDATE !!! - BONUS OFFER FROM A GENEROUS MEMBER ----
 
Here's what I offer...if any of the Pi holders invent something new with their pi, I, a licensed patent attorney with decades of experience in real life,, will 1) confer with them to together search and determine if and what might be patentable, and 2) help them prepare and file a U.S. provisional patent application that complies with U.S. law and will protect their invention for one (1) year.  After that, our new Edison would be on their own to decide whether they wanted to invest in a full patent (which would have to be done by their own patent attorney and at their own expense, I cannot represent them for the full patent filing).  This would apply only to the recipient, and only to inventions based on the pi they receive.  They would own their patent completely, no piece of the Pi for me or droidrzr.  

 

 

[Because patents involve federal law, I can and do work anywhere in the U.S., If someone has serious questions about the limits of what I am allowed to do with them I can certainly provide more, but conflict of interest rules can get a little dry. ]

70% Android devices vulnerable to released remote access exploit

19 Feb 2014

Posted By eyecre8 in DroidRzr News and Reviews

Attached File  android-exploit.jpg   50.72K   14 downloads

 

The recent release of a Metasploit module that allows attackers to remotely access ("get shell") on most Android-running devices has again raised a very good question: "How can we force carriers and sellers to deliver security updates to users in a timely manner?" 

The bug is in Android's WebView programming interface. Aside from giving attackers access to the devices' camera and file system via something as easy to set up as a booby-trapped web page, it can also be set off via a Man-in-the-Middle attack to deliver a trojanized app update which would then allow attackers to access all the things that the app itself has permission to use.

According to Ars Technica, the vulnerability in question was publicly disclosed in December 2012, and Google (finally!) fixed it in November 2013 when it released Android 4.2. 

Tod Beardsley, technical lead for the Metasploit Framework, says that this vulnerability is "kind of a huge deal", and 70 percent of devices out there are vulnerable because they run Android versions below 4.2. 

"In a completely unsurprising twist, I did a quick survey of the phones available today on the no-contract rack at a couple big-box stores, and every one that I saw were vulnerable out of the box," he added "And yes, that's here in the U.S., not some far-away place like Moscow, Russia."

"I'm hopeful that by publishing an E-Z-2-Use Metasploit module that exploits it, we can maybe push some vendors toward ensuring that single-click vulnerabilities like this don't last for 93+ weeks in the wild," he concluded.

There is not much that users can do to fix this problem, except pester their carriers in great numbers in the hope that a security update will be released sooner rather than later, hope that cyber criminals won't start using the module en masse, and be careful on which links the click on when using their Android devices. 

Users of devices who receive their OS updates directly from Google are safe, though.

HERE'S THE SKINNY (RULES)- 

Donate to DroidRzr.com HERE and donate whatever amount you want in increments of $5 AND AND AND AND post your amount here and state why you love DoridRZR.  Your donation will be weighted by that amount, so the more you donate, the better your chance.  (Example - You donate $10, the total amount received is $1000 - your chance is 10/1000 or 1 in 100).  

 

For each prize, there will be only one winner, so the main prize will be drawn first to ensure you all have a chance.
