It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell timing is everything when it comes to launching a new tech product, especially one that intends to create a fresh niche or target a part of the audience never targeted before.
We’ve seen a lot of hybrid tablets that run both Android and Windows in a dual-boot setup, but if Lenovo has its way, we might see an actual laptop running exclusively on Android in the near future.
Describing the ongoing partnership between smartphone and tablet manufacturer Xolo and SoC maker Nvidia as fruitful would probably be the understatement of the century, as a number of Tegra 3 and Tegra 4-powered products branded by Xolo have seen daylight of late.
Oh snap, it seems ARM is still a little pissed at Intel for their alleged benchmark shenanigans from a while back, so, in a very Samsung-like way, the British chip designers have compiled a YouTube video mocking the real-life performance of an Intel-powered tab.
Archos GamePad 2 goes official: same old design, same price, but faster CPU, more RAM and crisper display
Anyone remember the first-gen Archos GamePad? You know, the 7-inch budget-friendly Android tablet designed with gamers in mind, but heavily criticized by everyone for shoddy build quality, weak gaming support and an overall disappointing set of specs.
Aside from entering the smartphone arena with a number of fairly intriguing products (especially from a pricing standpoint), Archos has recently cranked up its tablet volumes, even going so far as to tackle niches than no one knew existed.
With the 2013 edition of the Nexus 7 out the door already, the likely LG-made N5 is by far the most hyped and anticipated new Google device tipped for a commercial launch by the end of the year. But what about the second-gen Nexus 10?
Though Archos is not exactly what you’d call a world-renowned consumer electronics manufacturer, the OEM sure likes to keep its hands busy and product line-up diverse.
It’s been close to three years since Indian-based Notion Ink introduced the Adam tablet to the world (how time flies, eh?), promising about two dozen things more than it ended up delivering.
It’s no easy feat to get from zero to hero in an environment as challenging and competitive as the Indian mobile market and do it all in just four years. But don’t you think for a second Micromax is resting on its laurels just because it’s now the country’s second biggest smartphone vendor, slightly behind
HP might not be planning a dive in the smartphone ocean… just yet, but as far as its tablet business is concerned, you can expect a lot of movement over the next few months. With emphasis on “a lot”.
A new leak suggests that ASUS could replace Samsung as Google’s hardware partner to manufacture the successor to the Nexus 10.
It’s barely been two weeks since Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 10.1 2014 Edition at a pre-IFA Unpacked event, but I bet it feels like more. For instance, do you by any chance remember that, just two days prior to the press conference, a Galaxy Note 12.2 was said to chaperone the
Amazon’s upcoming second-generation Kindle Fire HD 7″ has been laid out in the open in leaked pictures, revealing a new design and a full HD display.
Though the Moto X has only been around for, what, a few weeks now and AT&T is the only carrier to offer it in a fully customizable outfit, it’s probably not too early to call it a flop. Okay, semi-flop. A sleeper hit at the very best.
Lenovo kicked off IFA 2013 way ahead of schedule by introducing the world to a heap of new ThinkPad laptops on Tuesday, but you didn’t really think that was it for the OEM and the Berlin expo, did you?
Although the upgraded version of the Fonepad has stopped being a secret ages ago, Asus seems keen to keep a tight lid on it for a while longer. Probably until the new Transformer Pad, PadFone mini, MeMoFone HD 5 and MeMoPad HD 8 will themselves become official, which should happen any day now.
As part of its pre-IFA announcements, Acer has unveiled the Iconia A3, a mid-range 10-inch tablet that runs on Android 4.2 and offers high-quality sound and unique software features.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is in dire need of a refresh, being introduced to the world a full year ago, but the general opinion these days is we won’t be seeing a Note 10.1 2 anytime soon, but rather a jumbo-sized Note 12.2.
And so it begins. Technically, we’re still a full week away from the IFA 2013 official kick-off. But since things are to get awfully crowded on the Berlin stage seven days from now, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that certain exhibitors are already starting to reveal their new products.
