Another upcoming product has been delayed due to the ongoing chip shortage. This time it’s the Analogue Pocket, a handheld gaming device designed for retro gaming — it even uses cartridges from classic game consoles. Originally scheduled to ship in 2020, that date was pushed back to May 2021 due to global supply chain issues… and now it’s been pushed back to October, 2021.

Meanwhile, we may find out the fate of LG’s smartphone division as soon as next week, Google is tightening security for Android apps moving forward, and the Apple Arcade mobile gaming subscription service now gives users access to 180 titles for $5 per month.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

One reply on “Lilbits: More chip shortage fallout, elementary OS turns 10, and the end of LG smartphones?”

  1. And suddenly the question arises: who wants to buy an LG cell phone now?
    I’m going to get some popcorn ready to sit down and watch the brand’s cell phone offers that are going to appear in the coming months; it’s going to be fun.
