Expected to be officially revealed tomorrow at an event in London, the new handset appeared on a Brazillian retailer&rsquo;s site over the weekend.</p> <p>According to the listed specs, the Moto E will feature a 4.3in display, a dual-core 1.2Ghz Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot that accepts cards up to 32GB in size. It also includes a 1,980mAh battery and a 5-megapixel back camera, and it&rsquo;ll accommodate variously colored Moto Shells on the back.</p> <p>No word on pricing, but with the better-equipped Moto G launching at &pound;135.00 not long ago, it&rsquo;s sure to be cheap. Considering the specs, it may not steal that bang-for-your-buck crown away from its older sibling, but it may well prove a very solid low-end smartphone option.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.phonearena.com/news/New-Motorola-Moto-E-images-and-specs-revealed-colorful-Moto-Shells-included_id55990">PhoneArena</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/android/nokia-x-vs-motorola-moto-g-weigh/feature">Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh-in</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> LG introduces a trio of new G Pad tablets </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Last year&rsquo;s LG G Pad 8.3 <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/lg/lg-g-pad-83/review">impressed us</a> with fabulous design, a very sharp screen, and strong performance and battery life, but it proved just a bit expensive, not to mention overshadowed by headline 7in tablets. However, it seems that LG wants to compete on more fronts with the tablet line, as it just announced 7in, 8in, and 10.1in G Pad models.</p> <p>All three will be on display this week at the MedPI 2014 trade show in Monaco, although LG has yet to reveal pricing or availability details. We do know that all three will include the company&rsquo;s QPair 2.0 feature for linking an Android phone over Bluetooth for notifications on the tablet, as well as Knock Code, LG&rsquo;s personalized tap-based unlocking scheme.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.lgnewsroom.com/newsroom/contents/64493">LG Newsroom</a> via <a href="http://www.engadget.com/2014/05/11/lg-g-pad-7-8-10.1/">Engadget</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/gadget-awards-2013/stuff-gadget-awards-2013-these-are-8-best-tablets-year/feature">Stuff Gadget Awards 2013: The Apple iPad Air is our Tablet of the Year</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="594" title="LG G Pad" alt="LG G Pad" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/lg-gpads.jpg?1399881388" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Minimal new Gmail interface inbound? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>According to purported screen grabs obtained by Geek.com, Gmail may sport a much different, ultra-minimal interface in the future. The images show a very clean and sparse display with the list of emails floating in the middle of the screen, a fly-in menu on the left for access to folders and groups, and a series of bubbles on the lower right that allow you to compose messages or set reminders.</p> <p>Assuming the screens are real and Google is actually going ahead with this redesign, when might we see it in action? No idea on that front, though Gmail features are often optional and it&rsquo;s hard to believe that Google would force all users to accept such a drastic shift without time to adjust. That said, we&rsquo;re excited to see how this slick new approach actually pans out under the weight of a heavy inbox load.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.geek.com/apps/google-is-testing-new-web-based-gmail-features-1593555/">Geek.com</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/chrome-os/8-essential-google-chrome-os-apps-get-your-chromebook-flying/feature">8 Google Chrome OS apps to get your Chromebook flying</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="614" title="Rumored Gmail overhaul" alt="Rumored Gmail overhaul" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/gmail-new.png?1399881388" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Riding a roller coaster with Oculus Rift on?

As the story at Road to VR details, a pair of game developers created a simulation of a real-life roller coaster&mdash;and then rode the real thing while wearing the Oculus Rift and viewing the virtual version, which was set against an outer space backdrop.</p> <p>The developers snuck in the Rift and a laptop under heavy clothing, then one busted out the headset before the first big drop while the other filmed the chaos. Of course, we&rsquo;d suggest actually experiencing real-life roller coasters when you&rsquo;re paying for access (and strapped in), but surely there&rsquo;s some great benefit here to the future of VR. Or it&rsquo;s just a hilarious gag that&#39;s worth a quick moment of your time.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.roadtovr.com/two-indie-devs-snuck-concealed-oculus-rift-laptop-onto-rollercoaster-ride-lifetime/">Road to VR</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/oculus/jaunts-crazy-multi-lens-camera-records-insanely-immersive-movies-oculus-rift/news">Jaunt&#39;s crazy multi-lens camera records insanely immersive movies for the Oculus Rift</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/android/fully-charged-motorola-s-moto-e-budget-smartphone-leaks-biggersmaller-lg-g-pads-announced-an#comments Android Gmail Google LG Motorola Oculus Mon, 12 May 2014 04:56:41 +0000 Andrew Hayward 1436943 at http://www.stuff.tv Gmail app gets Notification Centre support in iOS http://www.stuff.tv/gmail/gmail-app-gets-notification-centre-support-ios/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The big G finally delivers and reveals new long-awaited features for its iOS email app </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/gmail-ios-update_0.jpg?1364400007" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_4707.jpg?1364400007" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Google has announced some new long-awaited features for its latest Gmail app update for iOS, the most prominent of which is support for Notification Centre integration.</p> <p>This means that new email alerts can now be displayed in the iOS Notification Centre banner, as well as in alert popups and on the lockscreen.
