A video has just been released this week by ASUS for the Mobile World Congress 2012 release of a brand new tablet with “twice the detail, twice the fun.” We must assume, of course, that this is not the same tablet we saw at CES 2012 in the Transformer Prime 700 series, instead we’re banking [...]
When it comes to ASUS, buying a full-size Android tablet has usually meant venturing past the $300 mark; even theTransformer Book T100set you back $349 when it first came out, and that was considered a steal. That's no longer a problem in 2014. ASUS' newTransformer Pad TF103Ccosts $299 with the company's signature keyboard dock included, or as much as some smaller mid-range slates.
This year for Mobile World Congress was a rebirth of sorts, owing largely to the restructuring of Samsung’s release schedule, Sony’s continued success with their Z series, Nokia’s push of Android, and the next big wave of wearables. We’ve also seen brands like Lenovo and HTC push hard with devices that aren’t aimed directly at the top tier.
Some say that I'm an Australian. And that as well as being an Engineer, I also enjoy a good game and my Android devices, currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 7. All you need to know though is I review hardware and games, write news, and manage the AndroidSPIN Facebook and Pinterest pages.Being so close to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 , we kind of assumed that most devices that were rumoured to be released around now would be announced at the industry event.
If you care about the latest smartphones, you need to pay attention toMobile World Congress. The annual show will be held in Barcelona next week, and it's going to be filled to the brim with handsets, tablets and wearables of every shape, size and color. We've compiled all of the major rumors, teasers and official company announcements to give you a glimpse at what's to come.
Giving owners of its slightly older PadFone devices something to look forward to, ASUS has announced an Android 4.4 update coming their way. Though the update won't be arriving until later this year, it should at least give current users some hope for their devices.
Toshiba is no stranger to Windows tablets, but what we've seen to date has typically been targeted atbusinessesor has otherwise been...limited. In that sense, theEncoreis something special. It's not just the company's first 8-inch Windows tablet -- it's the first aimed at a truly broad audience. That said, it faces stiff odds.
Acer'sIconia W3wasn'tquitethe best introduction to 8-inch Windows tablets; we liked it, but its subpar display and modest performance kept it from being stellar. Give credit to the company for quickly learning from its mistakes, though. Less than a year later, the company has released theIconia W4, and it fixes those earlier gripes even as the price has dropped below $300 as of this writing.
After a few new iterations of its PadFone line, it seems that ASUS is casting a glance on its Transformer Pad devices again. Rumored to be coming soon is a Transformer Pad TF303 and another with a model number TF103. Judging by the names, we can presume that these will be upgrades of previous existing devices, the TF300 and TF101, respectively.
ASUS has just put out a teaser video that is just ambiguous enough to be anything. What stands out near the end, however, is the word thin, leaving the door open for a new thin tablet, or maybe even a smartphone.
Mobile World Congress is upon us again, the cellularly-centric Barcelona show expected to see Nokia reveal its first Android device, Samsung its latest Galaxy flagship ahead of the iPhone 6 later this year, and wearables manufacturers further pitch the fast-growing segment.
ASUS is finally bringing its new ZenFone smartphone series to the market, but it isn't doing it first in primary regions. These Intel-powered devices are first landing on the shelves of stores and retailers in Southeast Asia, specifically in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
At this year’s Microsoft BUILD conference we’re likely to see the following device appear for the first time. Taking on many of the newest specifications outlined at MWC 2014 for Windows Phone devices, the Nokia Lumia 630 arrives with a 4.
Earlier this year we had a glimpse of the device known as the Transformer Book Duet TD300 at the CES 2014, a device that was destined to run Android and Windows 8 at once. Since then, it seems, Asus has felt pressure from both Microsoft and Google to skip the release of said device, citing a bit of a conflict of interests. This may also be affecting previously-released dual-OS devices as well. This information comes from the WSJ’s sources close to the subject, of course, which means we’re still not entirely certain of Microsoft and Google’s true involvement here. It’s suggested that devices such as the dual-OS Asus Transformer AiO P1801 and P1802 all-in-one PCs will also have production stopped in the immediate future. This is due to what the WSJ suggests is a "new policy" at Microsoft stopping support for dual-OS products.
Every once in a while there’s an app or device release who’s appearance on the market is more important than its inner workings. With Milk Music, this much is true. Samsung is continuing down the road of adding value to their devices, and their devices only, with apps that only work on Galaxy smartphones, Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy Tab tablet series.
There’s a set of three devices that’ve been revealed over the past week by Sony int he Xperia line of smartphones and tablets for Sony . That is the Sony Xperia M2, the smallest and least powerful of the three, and the Sony Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet. These three devices will be rolling out on the top and mid-tier, while the Xperia Z1 Compact is the smallest of the crew.
This morning we’re about to head to Mobile World Congress 2014 , but not before we grab a bunch of pre-show news blasts, of course. First we’re having a peek at some leaked images of the HTC Desire 8 , a smartphone that’s certainly pre-cursor to the next HTC One.
There’s a big-name Power Rangers movie in the works, well aside from the direct-to-tape movies released over the past several decades. This release is set to be headed by Lionsgate Films as well as Saban Brands. The team at Saban Brands were the originators of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers live action television series back in August of 1993.
