For a teaser, 10 seconds is on the short side, but that’s what ASUS is giving us today via their social media platform. We almost didn’t catch what the big deal was about, but a few views gave us the point of the teaser – dual cameras.
ASUS just launched a dual SIM KitKat smartphone that is set to lodge squarely on the mid-tier market – the ASUS ZenFone 5 Lite (A502CG). ASUS seems to be targeting the market for affordable KitKat smartphones in developing economies, and this phone is “exhibit A” for that intent.
The much-awaited ASUS ZenWatch was listed on Google Play last week but only with a ‘Coming soon’ tag. We only learned that it comes with a $199 price tag and with an unknown availability. The next day, the Android team through Android Wear Senior Product Manager Jeff Chang proudly announced that the smartwatch is finally available not only on Google Play but also on Best Buy.
The ASUS ZenWatch is coming real soon. Teased back in June and officially announced only last September at the IFA 2014, the Android Wear running smartwatch has also been added to the Android Wear catalog for the holidays recently.
Asus has launched a pair of new wallpapers for Android users called Asus MyOcean and Asus DayScene. The MyOcean wallpaper is a live wallpaper with the level of the water in the ocean tied to the battery level of the device. That means a glance at the water level will tell you how much power you have left.
Google’s Android Wear family is slowly growing, with more gadgets coming as the holidays roll in. The most recent of these is the ASUS Zenwatch, with the wearable device coming initially to Best Buy this November 9. The smartwatch was teased at Google I/O in June, and it will add to the now growing list of Android wearables.
ASUS' first Android Wear smartwatch, the ZenWatch, is not yet out in the market, but ahead of its official release comes three apps to prepare you for your new wearable (well, if you're planning on getting one at least). The ZenWatch Manager, Remote Camera and Wellness apps were created to enhance your ZenWatch experience, although one app can actually be used with other smartwatches on the Android Wear platform.
And it’s officially selling – the Nexus Player, that is. If you haven’t come across this device yet – although we’re not sure how that would be possible – this is the first Android TV set top box being pushed by Google and was manufactured by ASUS. We’ve speculated on its availability for a time now, but it’s finally available.
Asus has unveiled a new tablet that is aiming at people who are shopping for an entry-level tablet on a budget. The new tablet is called the MeMo Pad 10 ME103K and it has a 10-inch screen with a native resolution of 1280 x 800.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is here but Android fans are still clueless as to when the new platform will arrive on their devices. We have word that some of the latest tablets and smartphones will get a taste of Lollipop just before the year ends but it would be better if most OEMs give us a timeline.
