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 [...]
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.
CES isn't what it used to be. That's a mantra we've heard year after year. With major players like Google, Apple and Microsoft choosing to throw their own lavish product launches and specialized events likeMobile World Congressvying for our attention, it's hard to argue that things haven't changed.
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.
We generally don't have time to review low-end products, but sometimes we see something at such an aggressive price we just have to take it for a spin. That pretty much describes our feelings about the ASUS Transformer Book T100 , a 10-inch Windows tablet that comes with a keyboard dock in the box -- all for just $349.
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.
Amazon has confirmed that it has 20 million subscribers to its Prime service, Ben Schachter at Macquarie reports in a new note. Amazon had been hammered by the press for never giving out specific data on its Prime membership. Prime is the service that gives users free 2-day shipping all year long. It also gives users a streaming video subscription similar to Netflix.
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.
It wasn't exactly a banner year for laptops at CES. Hell, the "Best of CES" award for PCs ended up going to adesktop, and was nearly upstaged by anall-in-onerunning Chrome OS. Still, that didn't stop some companies (especially Lenovo) from trotting out some new models. From a simple Haswell refresh to a dual-OS hybrid, we've rounded up every laptop announced at the show.
Here at CES ASUS has just taken the wraps off its new Transformer Book Duet TD300, a quad-mode laptop that is said to be the first ever offering a full Android and Windows dual-operating system experience.
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 ‘ last video teaser hinted at what may be a dual OS tablet or a tablet hybrid, along the lines of its Transformer devices. This time, it seems that the company is suggesting that it will be going knee-deep into the smartphone space.
ASUS is probably more known as a notebook and tablet kind of company.
Asus has a history of using teasers to hint at new products it will unveil. Ahead of Computex last spring, Asus was teasing a product showing close ups that hinted at a shiny metal exterior. Asus has a new teaser video that has turned up ahead of CES 2014 kicking off next month in Las Vegas.
