According to a report just published by The Wall Street Journal, Nokia, the Finnish smartphone maker, is set to finally show off its first Android-powered device, codenamed the Normandy, at the Mobile World Congress later this month in Barcelona.
Following the unveiling of the new Moto G in São Paulo, Brazil, on Wednesday, Motorola has uploaded the handset’s first ad to YouTube.

Microsoft is trying to persuade HTC to make new smartphones that run both Android and Windows Phone, and it’s willing to cut or eliminate its own license fee to make it happen.

Google is pushing out a new update for its Maps application, which received a rather hefty upgrade not too long ago. This new update makes accessing the navigation screen considerably quicker and easier, with the introduction of a Google Now route and traffic overview card. In addition, the development team at Mountain View HQ has implemented a brand new ‘Tips and Tricks’ section of the app which is accessible via the hamburger menu, mounted on the left-hand side of the screen.
Google has updated its Google Maps apps for Android and iOS to add real-time incident reports from the Waze community. This means that when Waze users — or “Wazers” as they like to be called — report accidents, construction, road closures, and other delays, the alerts will be displayed inside Google Maps as well as Waze.
The good people at Motorola will probably clock me in the head with a Droid Maxx battery for saying this, but shouldn’t Google open-source Moto X technology?
Google recently revamped its Maps application, and although it looked great, it was missing one substantial feature that had been included in every other version of the app to date – the beloved scale bar.
