There are just some tech ideas that sound both intriguing and almost incredulous at the same time. Like this Fin ring that gives you almost magical powers over your smartphone and tablets using just your thumb and the power of Bluetooth.
It's only natural for rivals to take shots at each other, but it's better when done with good taste and perhaps a pinch of humor and sarcasm. This pair of Samsung ads for the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 tries to do just that as it tries to emphasize how Samsung's bigger or thinner devices are better than Apple's.
It seems that ASUS has caught the Samsung fever and seems intent on throwing more models or variants of the same design than you can or care to remember. An errata posted on the company's website revealed the name of a yet unannounced model of its smartphone/tablet hybrid called the PadFone Infinity Lite.
We've seen plenty of change in terms of using personal electronics on flights in recent months. For example, it isn't uncommon to be able to use 'small' electronics from gate to gate at this point. But with that in mind, it seems Lufthansa is going to begin swapping in-seat entertainment screens in favor of smartphones and tablets.
This isn't the first time we have seen leaked specs and images for the Huawei MediaPad X1. Details leaked back in late-January, and while the images aren't quite perfect this time around, they are providing a much better look at the tablet. What we are seeing comes courtesy of the Tenaa, which is the Chinese equivalent of the FCC.
With tablets that provide both Android and Windows operating systems slowly starting to crop up, it was only a matter of time before cheaper alternative also appear. ViewSonic, who is probably either popular or notorious for such affordable devices, has just launched what is actually its second dual-booting tablet, this time powered by an Intel Celeron N2910.
NVIDIA announced the Tegra Note tablet platform back in September of last year. As the 'platform' portion suggests, this is more of a reference, and since then we have seen models from Advent and EVGA, amongst others. The initial release had the Tegra Note tablet powered by Tegra 4, however it looks like an upgrade is currently in the works.
Coming as Verizon announced earlier in the week, the Nexus 7 is now available for purchase. Those looking to pick up a Verizon supported Nexus 7 have a few price options to consider. The tablet can be found online direct from Verizon Wireless and they have a two-year agreement and contract-free option available.
Following up on some recent rumors and leaks, Verizon Wireless has confirmed the upcoming availability of the Nexus 7 tablet. And as was rumored, the tablet will indeed be available shortly. Verizon has said the tablet will be available beginning on February 13th.
It almost sounded too good to be true when we heard rumors that an LTE version of the Nexus 7 bearing Verizon's stamp is well on its way, but now we're seeing the real deal. Sort of. A pair of leaked photos have surfaced depicting the Nexus 7 LTE boxes safely stowed away in a Verizon stockroom somewhere.
