We recently reviewed—and rather liked—the Asus Transformer Prime. It was the best Android tablet out there. Oh, until Asus dropped its new higher-end Transformer Prime, complete with a 1080p screen and improved back panel. Joy!
There's a not-so-dirty little secret about NVIDIA's upcoming Tegra 3 platform (which will soon find a home in plenty of mobile devices): the quad-core processor contained within has a fifth core for less intensive tasks.
Remember the Eee Pad Slider from way way back? We certainly do. Which is why it's excellent to see it finally come out, in all its full QWERTY keyboard, Android 3.1-having glory.
NVIDIA completed its purchase of Icera, a wireless modem company. With this technology under its belt, NVIDIA can build a mobile processor with a cellular radio and a baseband applications processor. Icera already develops a product that combines NVIDIA's Tegra processor with an HSPA+ radio and support for Android.…
Motorola's Photon 4G is the first Sprint phone equipped with the dual core, 1GHz Tegra 2 chipset and it's their first 4G phone to have international roaming capabilities.
Lenovo is leaking like a poorly built ship this Easter Sunday: This Is My Next just broke word of a not-yet-officially acknowledged Honeycomb-equipped ThinkPad tablet, due out (with stylus) this July.
Sony will be bringing their PlayStation Suite to Tegra-based Android devices in the future, and will even be certifying hardware manufacturers for support and to deliver a "PlayStation quality experience." Now you won't need a Sony Ericsson phone to enjoy PlayStation games. [AndroidAndMe via Engadget via BGR]
It's everywhere. CES, which hasn't even officially started yet, has already given birth to more Tegra 2 phones and tablets than I care to count. So, again, what's so special about this thing?
It's difficult to gauge the full power of the autostereoscopic 3D from a video, but, as with Sharp's parallax barrier technology, you can see how Scaleform's glasses-less 3D works. The video presenter's "ooh! ahh!"-ing just endorses it even more.
That's the moral of this NYT story about the bubbling war in mobile chips. They're expensive to make. And, no one's better at making them than Intel, whose manufacturing tech is years ahead of anybody else.
In today's bursting-at-the-seams Remainders: laziness. We've got a new Adesso keyboard for the couch-potato web surfer; a Taiwanese truck driver sleeping behind the wheel; a lazily conceived concept car; a demo that takes Farmville procrastination anywhere; and more!
With Windows Phone 7 out, everyone has forgotten about the other Microsoft handsets, the allegedly Sidekick-derived Turtle and Pure cellphones. Someone got a peek into the firmware, which confirms some of the rumors about these "not-so-dumb cellphones".
Let's take a moment to appreciate Viewsonic's new Android tablet while we can, before it gets crushed in the tidal wave of coverage that a certain other tablet's debut will get next week. And it's got some things worth appreciating!
If I had $80,000 to spend on a car, I would probably go with an Audi A8. And now I have even more reason to want one since they partnered with Nvidia for their dashboard graphics.
This won't be officially "announced" until tomorrow, so there's no name or anything to it, but we just played around with Nvidia's 7-inch Tegra tablet design that runs Android.
Boy, that Satoru Iwata has been awfully mouthy recently. In addition to sounding off about the next DS having a motion sensor, he also told Asahi that it'll have a higher-resolution screen. A HIGH DEFINITION screen.
Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata was more mouthy than most presidents are about their upcoming, but unannounced, products, and said that the upcoming DS will have an accelerometer. Or, some kind of motion sensor.
