Lenovo K80 launched to lock horns with ASUS ZenFone 2

So how many mid-tier phones do you know out there with dual-channel 4GB RAM? “Not a lot” is the answer you’ll get, most probably. In truth, the ASUS ZenFone 2 was indeed the first one out there to utilize this much RAM. Then that was followed by Xiaomi’s Mi Note Pro phablet. But those two are not in the same category. Now Lenovo is coming out with the K80, yes, with 4GB of RAM and a lot closer to where the ZenFone 2 is, market-wise.

ASUS ZenFone 2 starts selling in India

The ASUS ZenFone 2 – designed to compete, out-perform, and out-price most mid-tier phones out in the market today – has just started selling in one of the fastest growing markets for smartphones today, which is India. Three variants of the smartphone were released, showing a gradual increase in pricing as the specs go up but still, on the whole, a very affordable proposition.

Nexus 7 no longer available on Google Store

It looks like the reports are true regarding the fate of Google's Nexus 7. You won't be able to find the tablet anymore in the Google Store as it has officially been discontinued since last Friday. This has been coming about since last fall, after the release of the Nexus 9, so it's not really a surprise. While you can probably still find one if you look really hard, removing it from the Google Store lessens its availability.

New Asus VivoWatch to be sold in watch, not gadget, stores

You would expect that smartwatches will be sold where smartphones are usually sold, since they are more of a gadget rather than an actual watch (although they do tell time). But Asus sees it diferently, at least when it comes to their brand new wearable, the VivoWatch. Instead of heading to your nearest gadget stores, you might want to step in to stores where they sell old-school watches as this is where you'll find the newest smartwatch from Asus.

No WiFi support for some smartwatches from LG, Asus

Apparently, not all Android Wear smartwatches are created equal. While those who own the Moto 360 and the Sony Smartwatch 3 are rejoicing that they will have WiFi support from the latest update from the wearable platform, some smartwatches like the LG G Watch, G Watch R, and the Asus Zenwatch will not be getting this additional connectivity from Android. There is still no word from Samsung on whether their devices have WiFi antennas.

ASUS shows off ZenFone 2’s camera technology in a video

ZenFone 2 ZE551ML with 4GB RAM tested for multitasking

ASUS has been leveraging on its partnership with chipmaker Intel for making its ZenFone line perform way better than any phone at that price point should. Last year ASUS surprised everybody with the ZenFone 5, competing against Motorola’s Moto G for affordability, but showing some definite class with a better camera and performance. Now we have the ASUS ZenFone 2, one of the first consumer smartphones to offer 4GB of RAM, being tested for what should be a smooth multitasking performance.

ASUS to launch fitness-centric, 10-day battery life VivoWatch

ASUS' current wearable, the ZenWatch had a pretty great two-day battery life, for a device on the Android Wear platform. It looks like they're trying to top that with a new smartwatch that they're launching, and this time, it's not just 2 days or even 5 days, but it claims it can run on 10 days without recharging it. Will the VivoWatch live up to its promise of being a fitness-centric smartwatch?

ASUS Chromebook Flip: budget netbook in tablet/laptop hybrid style

We somehow expect a lot from our netbooks nowadays, when before we only needed it for word processing and web surfing functionalities. But now we have a lot of high-end devices that can function as both a netbook and a tablet. Chromebook OS devices are also slowly growing in number, but they are either too expensive or on the other end of the spectrum, the low-end ones still leave a lot to be desired. But now ASUS is attempting to bridge the gap between premium specs and affordable prices with their new Chromebook Flip.
