Three big names in the mobile industry are working together to bring the PadFone X mini in the United States. Intel and AT&T are helping Asus to release the new smartphone this coming October 24 in AT&T retail stores and some national retailers.
ASUS has released on its YouTube channel several new videos highlighting the advantages of having a 2-in-1 device with its Padfone S smartphone/tablet hybrid. The gadget line, which is one of a kind (so far) can be used as a smartphone which then converts into a tablet when docked, for the price of one device and one data plan as well. So this might be the device for those who want to have both but may have only budget for one.
How many times do you change the wallpaper on your phone or tablet? With the ASUS MyWater Live Wallpaper, I doubt if you’ll ever want to change yours again. Use a live wallpaper and see water rise as you charge your battery. You’ll never be bored.
Continuing its KitKat updates for its ZenFone family, ASUS has released the latest firmware for the larger ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 6. Aside from updating the Intel-powered Android smartphones to the latest Android 4.4 version, it also adds some new features to region or model specific handsets.
Asus ZenFone 4 owners have something to be happy about on the first day of October. A major software update has landed for the Asus smartphone bringing with it a number of notable updates. Most notable is a new version of Android.
Google has announced at this year’s IO Developer’s Conference that it was working on an Android OS for smart TVs and set-top boxes which will be called Android TV. This will launch presumably side-by-side Android L, the company’s newest operating system. Recently, a device called the ASUS Nexus Player showed up at GFX Bench, giving fuel to rumors that this could be the first Android TV device.
ASUS was one of the many companies who opened IFA 2014 with announcements of new products. We’ve seen the ZenWatch earlier, ASUS’ first wearable device. Next to be introduced is another addition to the very successful MeMO Pad family of Android tablets.
The smartwatches have started their grand entrance even before IFA 2014 has officially started. ASUS announced the arrival of the ZenWatch, the Taiwanese OEM’s first smartwatch and it is in partnership with Google. It is now officially the fifth wearable on the Android Wear platform, after the Samsung Gear Live, the LG G Watch and G Watch R, and the soon to be launched Moto 360.
A few days before the actual launch of the Asus Zenwatch, the OEM has confirmed some details about the latest Android Wear smartwatch, while still keeping the public in suspense about its specifications. While the past teasers have indeed teased us about this new smartwatch on the block, Asustek confirmed that it will indeed have voice recognition and control and it is cheaper than other similar gadgets in the market.
While IFA 2014 itself formally starts in a few days, many companies have scheduled their press events ahead to leave IFA open to actual device demos and showcases. But what do we expect from manufacturer's this time of year? As it turns out, quite a lot. Unsurprisingly, a lot of those also revolve around the tech industry's latest babies: smartwatches. Of course, it isn't just all about smartwatches, as we're expecting to see a few smartwatches and some tablets these coming days as well.
