Mobile Nations Weekly: Name and release

N gets named, Autopilot turns deadly, and Huawei goes thin.

Android N finally has some branding clarity: N is for Nougat and the version is 7.0. It'll still be a while before the next flavor (*ahem*) of Android starts hitting devices, but at least we now know what it will taste li— err, what to call it. Samsung did something we've long been asking for — they released unlocked U.S. versions of the Galaxy S7. BlackBerry went big with advertising the same week they got the disappointing, if envitable, news that the United States Senate would no longer issue BlackBerry phones to staffers — but it appears that a new Android-powered BlackBerry is on the horizon.

Huawei is pushing hard with their new Windows 10 tablet, the MateBook; it's super thin and super impressive. Additionally, we finally have a date for the launch of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (also known as Redstone): August 2 for PC, Mobile, and even Xbox. But one of the marquee features — Messaging Everywhere — didn't make the release.

Those living on the bleeding edge of the Apple world are putting all of the upcoming software updates through their paces through developer previews. From iOS 10 to macOS Sierra, there's a lot to take in. Not to mention the big updates coming for tvOS and watchOS 3

The Tesla community is grappling with the first fatal wreck in an Autopilot-driven vehicle. The tragedy is drawing more scrutiny of automated driving, but also highlighting the dangers that arise when we get too complacent with technology that we know isn't yet ready to operate entirely on it's own. People die when we get reckless, and in this instance we're lucky only the driver of the Tesla was killed or injured.

VR took a tentative step forward into... reality? In a truly interesting experiment, the upcoming Ghostbusters movie put on a really unique VR experience. They called it "Ghostbusters: Dimension" and it took the stereoscopic 3D vision and audio and threw in some new senses: touch and smell.

Over 30,000 youtube subscribers in less than a week... and MrMobile is just getting started!

It's been a whirlwind ten days in MrMobile's Boston studios, where we've been focused on crafting the biggest YouTube debut party the mobile tech space has ever seen. In less than two weeks, I've published an introduction video, two smartphone reviews, a preview of the hottest electric car ever to hit the road, a look at a "work phone" that's also a pretty sweet vacation device, and a mobile accessory I've wanted since before Bluetooth was invented.

The response thus far has been overwhelmingly positive, and I'd like to thank everyone who helped push the MrMobile YouTube Channel to over 30,000 subscribers basically overnight. Don't despair if you missed the initial launch celebration, though! To help you get up to speed, we've embedded every single MrMobile video in this post. Click around to see what catches your eye, and when you're done catching up, hop on over to the MrMobile Channel page and hit that Subscribe button; we still need your help to hit 50K, 100K, and all the milestones that lay beyond!
