Work profile

Google just announced its new Android for Work program that will see it work with partners to bring Android into the enterprise. With Android for Work, users will have access to features like Work Profiles, a new Android for Work app, Google Play for Work, and new productivity tools.

Work profiles will offer users what Google described as a secure and “dedicated work profile that isolates and protects work data,” while the Android for Work app will offer a secure solution for mail, calendar, contacts, documents, web browsing and more.

The new platform could be seen as a reaction and competitor to Apple’s announcement last year that it would team up with IBM to bring enterprise services to iOS and push iPhones and iPads to business customers.

Google provided a break down of the features mentioned above, which it said will make up Android for Work’s “four key technology components.” expand full story

Unlike most of its competitors, Samsung is embracing all of the crazy rumors about its upcoming devices and having a little fun with it on its website.

The images above and below were posted to a webpage on Samsung’s website teasing some absurd renderings of imaginary mobile devices based on rumors floating around online for the company’s upcoming next-gen Galaxy device. This is clearly Samsung having fun with the rumormongers, but we do expect its new flagship Galaxy S6 to make an appearance in the coming weeks… expand full story
