This Week in Mobile

Google, Apple, and everyone else! "Top up” your weekly knowledge of the mobile industry so you can keep up on all that's going on!


Here at Fueled, a mobile development company based in New York and London, we are obsessed with everything that happens in mobile, be it rumors of iPhone hardware, subtle Android updates or new apps we love.

Every Friday, we’d like to help you “top up” your weekly knowledge of the mobile industry so you can keep your finger on the pulse.

It's Google Time


The Google watch is coming! The company is said to be putting the final touches on another wearable tech device. The Nexus watch will have a lot of Google Glass functionality and is rumored to be introduced around Halloween. Stay tuned!

Nexus 5 Leak


Images of the new Nexus 5 leaked, again. This time, after weeks of speculation about the new phone, the 5 briefly appeared on the Google Play store before disappearing as quietly as it appeared. The phone was advertised for $349 for a 16GB version.

Luckily, you won't have to wait much longer for the phone- it is rumored to debut at the end of the month. The new flagship Android phone will be the first to run Android 4.4 KitKat and is expected to have a 4.96 inch screen. To add to the intrigue, Nexus 5 cases are already on sale on Amazon giving us all a peak it to its size and shape.

HTC Yawn

As we mentioned last Top Up, the HTC One debuted this week. It has a large screen, so large in fact that many reviewers complain that it's too big and offers nothing new to the Android market. A good round up of reviews can be found here.

There is potentially good news for HTC. The Financial Times reports that HTC has partnered with Amazon. Apparently, they're working on a number of devices that will be released next year... maybe. For now, the partnership is only rumored.

Apple Event


Next week, Apple will introduce the 5th Generation iPad (has it really been 5 years?) and a Retina iPad mini that will have extended battery life. The event will take place at 1 pm EST on October 22nd. Oh, goody!

In other Apple news, people are adopting to iOS 7  slower than iOS 6. Check out some interesting adoption graphs here.

Have you checked out The Next Web's SHIFT Magazine? The digital quarterly magazine is available on the iPad and features unique articles and inspiring stories about tech, innovation, and startups. Better yet, their content isn't compiled from their website. We're digging it.

What do you think were the big mobile stories this week? Let us know in the comments!
