Lava Red OnePlus 5T is officially sold out in North America

Now a collector’s item.

The 5T is OnePlus’s best-looking phone to-date, and limited edition colors like Sandstone White and Lava Red have helped to spruce it up way more than its standard Midnight Black option. The Lava Red OnePlus 5T originally went on sale in North America on February 6, and a little over two weeks later, it’s officially sold out.

OnePlus originally said that the Lava Red 5T would only be available “while supplies last”, and  [Read More…]

Only 88,000 units of the Essential Phone were sold in 2017

Despite numerous software updates and price cuts, Essential still has a lot of work to do.

It’s no secret at this point that the Essential Phone has had a rough life. Relentless software updates and a dramatic price cut have resulted in the device finally being at least worthy of your consideration, but its blundering launch appears to have hurt Essential where it counts.

IDC Research Director Francisco Jeronimo recently announced on Twitter that the Essential shipped  [Read More…]

Google sold about 6 million Home speakers during the holidays

More than one Google Home was sold every second.

This past holiday season, there’s a good chance you either bought or received a smart speaker of some sort. Amazon’s been dominating this space since the first Echo Dot came out in 2016, but with the launch of the Google Home Mini in late 2017, Google finally had its own ultra-cheap speaker to get inside as many people’s homes as possible.

Google recently shared a post on its  [Read More…]

Amazon’s Echo Spot is now on sale and already sold out

The Echo Spot is here, but you can’t have one just yet.

During Amazon’s fall hardware event this year, one of the more eye-catching announcements was the Echo Spot – Amazon’s futuristic alarm clock with a circular display and the full power of Alexa. The Echo Spot officially went on sale today, December 19, but it’s already out of stock.

Amazon actually sold out of the Echo Spot back around Thanksgiving, and while you can still technically  [Read More…]

Essential has probably sold around 5,000 Essential Phones since its release

More than a month after its initial release, the Essential Phone has only sold 5,000 units. That’s not good.

Just like every year, 2017 has brought the release of a lot of new phones — most of them very good. You’ve got your heavy-hitters like the Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30, but then there’s the market oddity that is the Essential Phone. The very first product from Andy Rubin’s new startup was officially launched on August 17, and  [Read More…]

Boston Dynamics is getting a new owner again.

Google’s parent company Alphabet Inc. has decided to sell Boston Dynamics, which it bought back in 2013, to technology holdings group SoftBank for an undisclosed amount. Boston Dynamics frequently makes the rounds on social media (and regular media) whenever it puts out videos of their adorable dog-like robots… or of their engineers kicking said dog-like robots to prove they can balance.

It’s hard to tell if Alphabet won  [Read More…]

Samsung sold fewer phones than Apple in Q4 2016; OPPO and Huawei see huge gains

The latest global smartphone shipment numbers highlight the increasing dominance of Chinese manufacturers.

Apple shipped 78.3 million iPhones in Q4 2016, surpassing Samsung to take the crown as the world’s number one smartphone vendor. According to Strategy Analytics, Samsung saw its shipments decline from 81.3 million in Q4 2015 to 77.5 million last quarter, largely due to the termination of the Galaxy Note 7. That said, the South Korean manufacturer shipped 309.4 million smartphones over the course  [Read More…]

Amazon Echo holiday sales 9 times higher than 2015, ‘millions’ sold this year

The holiday shopping season has been good to Amazon, and particularly Echo.

Now that Christmas 2016 has passed, Amazon has some insightful metrics on its sales from the bulk of the holiday season. Predictably, Amazon Echo sales were dramatically higher than last year: nine times higher than the same period last year, in fact. That is of course fueled by the massive increase in popularity and injection of Echo into popular culture, but also by the launch of the  [Read More…]
