Google has begun issuing invitations for a September 15 event in India where it is expected to announced the first crop of Android One devices built specifically for emerging markets. The handsets are expected to go on sale next month, with prices starting at just $100.


Asus will unveil its first Android Wear smartwatch at IFA 2014 in Berlin next month. Asus CEO Jerry Shen revealed the news to investors at a conference in Taiwan, reports claim, and he promised the device will look better than competing wearables from rival companies.


The Google Play store has all but run out of Nexus 7 tablets, rekindling rumors that a brand new successor made by HTC could be right around the corner. “We are out of inventory,” a notice reads, without giving customers any indication when new stock might be available to order.


Indian smartphone maker Spice has confirmed it will launch its first Android One smartphone by the end of October. The device is expected to deliver a dual-core processor, two SIM card slots, and a built-in FM radio — and in line with the Android One program, it should cost under $100.


Google’s Android One announcement at Google I/O last month was quickly overshadowed by the grand unveiling of Android L, but you can expect it to get the limelight it deserves over the coming months as it takes emerging markets by storm — starting with India.

That’s where the first Android One device will make its debut this October, priced at just $100, according to a new report.
