TiVo has today updated its Android app to finally add support for video streaming from your DVR to supported smartphones and tablets. The feature gives users the ability to begin watching live and recorded shows on their TV at home, and then continue enjoying them on their mobile devices when they leave the house.

If you love the look of Apple’s latest iPhones but you can’t stand the thought of ditching Android for iOS, then perhaps this shameless Chinese knockoff will get your mouth watering. It’s called the Sophone i6 and looks just like the real thing, but it runs Jelly Bean instead of iOS and it’s available at a fraction of the price.

Its specifications aren’t exactly awful, either.

Google has just published the latest distribution figures for the Android operating system. The numbers were uploaded to the official Developer Dashboard blog and reveal a consistent growth in the amount of users running KitKat (4.4), whilst older versions of the OS continue on their long path towards extinction.

You’ve probably never heard of Gionee, a Chinese electronics manufacturer that builds handsets mostly for emerging markets. But if super slim smartphones are your thing, you’ll want to take note of its latest offering, the Elife S5.1.

Sony has all but confirmed that its midrange Xperia T, Xperia TX, and Xperia V handsets will not be receiving an Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade. All three devices will remain on the latest version of Jelly Bean… at least officially.
