Top 10 most read: LG G3 on sale, Android L adds Samsung Knox, Intel details Knights Landing

The hottest news of last week for V3 readers was LG’s G3 smartphone going on sale in the UK. The Korean firm’s flagship is aiming to compete with the iPhone 5S and Galaxy S5 to win the title of best and most popular high-end smartphone, but based on its current reach in the British market, LG has a long way to go to oust competition from Apple and Samsung.

There was also much excitement around Intel disclosing further details about its next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) processor, codenamed Knights Landing. The chip is likely to appear in systems from late 2015, and will be based on a version of the Silvermont core used in Intel’s Atom processors, with HPC enhancements including a low-latency mesh for inter-core communication.

Google has been busy in its labs, with a flurry of announcements from its I/O conference last week. The most interesting of these for IT managers is news that Google will build Samsung’s Knox mobile security technology into the upcoming version of Android. Google also unveiled further details of Android L, which adds more than 5,000 application programming interfaces (APIs) and a completely reworked user interface.
