Wal-Mart lists Google Home Mini smart speaker ahead of official launch

Starfish brings Microsoft Groove to Amazon Echo

Google to produce smart speaker with screen to take on the Amazon Echo Show

A few hours back, popular leakster Evan Blass leaked the Google Pixel 2 XL frontal. Previous leaks about this laptop, which is codenamed Eve, indicate it will have a fingerprint sensor, Google Assistant support, and a tweaked keyboard layout.

The sources reported that this new device by Google has internally been codenamed as "Manhattan" with having a similar size of screen as the Amazon's 7 inch Echo Show.

You'll notice that there's no clear headphone jack there, so perhaps this is the death of the analogue jack on Google's device too. Neither smartphone is expected to feature a headphone jack, a real inconvenience if you're still holding onto some 3.5mm headphones.

Worse, when I first broke the Pixel XL, no one knew how to fix it. Repair shops all over town didn't have the parts to fix this unique piece of back glass. Many reports also suggest that these phones will come with the IP67 rating for dust and water resistance.

The most awaited launch is the new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, dubbed Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

The bump-free camera design seemed ideal when the Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL launched 12 months ago.

Both phones will also be Android 8 Oreo-enabled, of course. The new device was requesting for a setup which hints that a Google employee might be testing the device ahead of the official rollout.

Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 suffers PC launch problems, EA provides fix
No matter if you're playing seasons online, ultimate team or just messing around with friends, some skills are essential to learn. Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 earns the nod as first title on the platform from EA.

For all of their qualities, the Pixel and Pixel XL were not cheap handsets.

What are you most looking forward to on Pixel Day?

The latest leak indicates that prices for the Pixel 2 will start at 64GB for $649, and offer a 128GB model at $749. The bigger variant will go on sale on November 15th while the Pixel 2 will be up for sale from November 19th.

This one is pretty straightforward - or should be, anyway.

A genuine comedy of errors just took place in anticipation of Google's big product launch event tomorrow, as a Twitter user by the name of Raymond Durk randomly caught a glimpse of a "GoogleHome2787" device in need of urgent setup.

We also get a release date, which is October 19.
