Broken or damaged smartphones are a thing of the past with iMend’s 30-minute “while you watch” repairs
For most people a broken or damaged smartphone is frustrating and disruptive, with expensive repairs and the thought of spending weeks without their trusty handheld a daunting situation to have to face. But UK smartphone repair company iMend.com solves all of these problems and more by offering a comprehensive and convenient repair service with a twist.
iMend, the brainchild of Birmingham-based entrepreneur Keir McConomy, offers a unique service for two important reasons. It is the first company to offer a UK-wide mobile phone repair callout service, with a wide-reaching team of technicians on standby to fix all major Android brand handsets, including Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG and more.
It also helps customers avoid lengthy waits for their phone, with an on-site service where technicians come straight to the customer – whether at work, at home, at a hotel or at another location within the UK. Technician’s can travel to a location to perform a same-day service, and in most cases repairs take no longer than 30 minutes.
Nintendo’s partner DeNA sheds new light on mobile gaming plans ahead of first launch later this year
Gaming giant Nintendo expects to make over 3 billion yen ($25.02 million) a month from bringing classic console characters to smartphone and tablet, says its mobile development partner DeNA Co.
Talking to Reuters, DeNA’s Chief Executive Isao Moriyasu said the companies would release their first game later this year, but wouldn’t say which beloved Nintendo series – which includes Super Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda and Pokemon – will be the first to make the leap to mobile.
“We want to create games that will be played by hundreds of millions of people,” Moriyasu told Reuters in an interview. “We want to create multiple hit games rather than aiming to succeed with just one powerful IP [Intellectual Property] element.”
HTC has announced that it will be launching the HTC One M8s, just a month after announcing its new flagship phone, the HTC One (M9)
In a surprising move, the Taiwanese company has unveiled their next handset will be an updated version of their popular HTC One (M8) with an updated camera, battery and processor.
The new model will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core processor and will have 16GB of internal memory that can be boosted to 128GB with an SD card.
The battery has been beefed up to 2840mAh and it will run Android Lollipop 5.0 straight out of the box, but the biggest change that you’ll notice will probably be the camera. HTC has abandoned the 4MP UltraPixel rear-facing camera in favour of a 13MP offering but has stuck with a 5MP camera on the front, which is still more than reasonable.
HTC is winding down its Sense TV app for Peel.
The Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer has confirmed that it plans to end the Sense TV app in favour of Peel from 30 April 2015. The service has been running for around two years but as it is already powered by Peel, users shouldn’t notice a whole lot of difference.
The app transforms your phone into a remote control and electronic program guide (EPG), linking your smartphone to your TV via the IR blaster on the top of your device.
Not only does the app control your TV but it also shows you information about the show you’re watching as well as suggesting shows it thinks you might be interested in, based on the shows you’ve accessed via the app.
