Last year was Xiaomi's break out year in the world of Android, after hitting it off with its flagship, the Mi 3, which the company made available in China's neighbouring countries, particularly India.
As a result, the Chinese manufacturer was able to sell a total of 61 million smartphones in 2014, which is already a record for the relatively new business.
However, it seems Xiaomi is not done in improving its market share in Asia and other nearby markets. In a report by Phone Arena, the China-based manufacturer has just shipped 35 million smartphones in just the first half of 2015. That is an increase from the 25 million it was able to ship during the same period of time last year. more >>

A couple of years ago, who would have thought Blackberry would be able to make it past its financial woes and into the market once more? While the manufacturer has not been able to recapture its dominance in the enterprise market, it still has a loyal fan base in Asia, which makes it competitive in the entry-level and midrange groups.

"No Man's Sky" was first revealed a year ago, at the E3 2014. Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games, the developer behind the new open-world space adventure game, has had the concept of the game in his mind since he was a child because he dreamed of being an astronaut. Thus, when he founded Hello Games, it has always been a pet project of sorts.
