NVIDIA had a few big announcements here at CES 2013. Those included the Tegra 4 processor, which was demonstrated with a round of Dead Trigger 2 as well as the GRID and SHIELD. And while these will all very in importance, we think the SHIELD is a pretty interesting device. At the basic level, the NVIDIA SHIELD is an Android game console, but there is a bit more to it. We've mentioned it plenty already but here's an additional look.
ViewSonic was here at CES 2013 showing off a rather unique Android device. Their VSD240 is a Tegra-touting "tablet" that they are currently calling a ViewSonic Smart Display. Read on for more details on this 24-inch quad-core display running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean after the break.
Archos unveiled the 97 Titanium HD tablet with "Super HD" display just a little before Christmas. And well, it looks like the 97 Titanium HD is only one device that will make up the family of Titanium branded tablets. This news comes out of CES and notes that the Titanium lineup will include four tablets in total.
Alcatel had a handful of announcements here at CES 2013. We saw smartphones to include the Scribe X and Scribe HD-LTE as well as the One Touch Idol and Idol Ultra. And on the tablet front, we saw the 7-inch One Touch Evo 7 HD. But not to leave things as is with only a 7-inch tablet model, Alcatel also unveiled the One Touch Tab 8 HD.
another series of rumors, Samsung has officially announced the Galaxy S II Plus. That being said, while Samsung was forthcoming in terms of the specs (and images), they have yet to offer anything in terms of a price or a release date. Not to mention, which markets the Galaxy S II Plus is expected to come available in.
Tegra 4 processor earlier in the week and now we have some big processor news coming from Samsung. Simply put, they have officially announced the Exynos 5 Octa chip. Samsung has said that this chip is the world’s first mobile application processor to implement the ARM big.LITTLE processing technology from the Cortex A15 processor.
CES 2013 was Pebble. Which, considering the product was originally expected to ship back in September of 2012 -- who would have guessed. Of course, considering how the Kickstarter took off, it seems many would have been more surprised had they met that shipping time. Regardless though, as we saw in the Pebble press conference from earlier today, the watches will begin shipping on January 23.
Yota announced a rather intriguing new smartphone called the YotaPhone. As I'm sure many of you are aware, this Android 4.1 Jelly Bean handset sports two displays. The front being a 4.3-inch 720p LCD display, and the rear of the device enjoys a 4.3-inch E-ink screen. It's a neat concept and we were able to enjoy some time with a prototype unit earlier today and we came away rather impressed.
