There Is A New Nexus Tablet Coming Soon, Excited?!

without comments

gsmarena_001WSJ has confirmed that HTC has been working on a new Nexus tablet for a while now. The Nexus tablet will be coming in a 9 inch form factor.

HTC refused to comment on the matter but Google said, “Android is a vibrant ecosystem, and many of the industry players are doing very well. There’s room for many partners to do well and to innovate with Android.” Google has been switching between brands so that manufacturers dont get monopoly. 

There is also a motorola smartphone lined up for release later this year. Android fans, things just got interesting!

A New Nexus 9 Tablet Is Being Made By HTC!

without comments

htc-google-nexus-8-9-volantisThe Google Nexus line has been dormant since the Nexus 5 last year and we have had rumors of a Nexus 6 and even Android Silver – a new line of premium devices.

The Nexus 8 that we had heard about earlier turns out to be a Nexus 9 that is currently being made by HTC. The tablet is rumored to be running on a Nvidia Tegra K1 chip which is a 64-bit processor. The resolution of the display is an odd 2048*1440 with an aspect ratio of 4:3 – more like the iPad Air. The rear-facing camera is an 8MP shooter with optical image stabilization, and it’s backed up by a 3MP front-facing unit and 2 GB of RAM.

This tablet will launch in Q4 2014.

Now You Can Run Native iOS Apps On Android!

without comments

cider-android-ios-appsIt’s not for the first time that we have heard cross platform apps running. BlackBerry 10 and Jolla Sailfish OS have been doing it pretty neatly since quite a while now.

But still, the competition remains between Android and iOS when it comes to the best app stores and apps. Folks at Columbia University are in the process of developing a Cider OS compatible architecture and for now, they’ve caught our attention. Cider is designed ground up to help Android running native iOS apps without any code modification.

If you are wondering what kind of witchcraft enables this then this is – Cider uses compile time code adaption in the Android kernel couple with an additional interpretation layer that can handle such code in and out of the kernel. Well, to some it up, it works, surely it’s not the smoothest experience, but we have to keep in mind that this is a work in progress and early success means we can see a great future for this.

Who know’s maybe we’ll be sharing apps across platforms in a few years, without any restrictions!

Official Nexus 7 Case Damages Tablet!

without comments

No one can disagree to the fact that Google makes the most affordable Tablets and Smartphones when it comes to their Nexus series which is meant to deliver the best Android experience.

But more often when one does purchase a tablet or phone, people expect to protect their devices since not every one is planning to upgrade each year. That explains the existence of cases and protection films, Google’s prices are on the steep side of things, and the designs haven’t always won us over. Folks at Android Central reported that thier unit of the Nexus 7, which was picked up last year with the folio case, in turn damages the unit over time.

The red folio case had deposited orangish marks that were more than just a breeze to remove. Sure it’s just a case but for one that costs $50, this is far from expected. Why would anyone allow their accessories damage their precious devices, specially when Amzer has some awesome picks at crazy prices!

8.9 Inch Nexus Tab In Works, Made By HTC?!

without comments

Nexus8concept1Rumors of a future possible Nexus 8 has been in the air since quite a while since the Nexus line of tablets is pretty much depending on only one update strong contender at this moment – the Nexus 7 2013 edition.

“The expectation is [that] this will be a lower volume product, carrying a premium price tag to support the specifications”, claims the report, which also mentions “high-performance” specifications. With the Nexus tag, does come the non premium price tag and quoted in the report is a tag of more than $299.

The report says that HTC may be the manufacturer for this, but let’s keep this in the rumors category for now.

Google I/O Scheduled, Tickets Sold Like Lottery, New Nexus 7 Rumored?!

without comments

google-io-2013Android always manages to take the centre stage at Google i/O conferences, with lot of new services like Google Music being announced previously and even new and experimental hardware, like the Nexus Q.

Returning to a June date is interesting, makes us think in the direction of the Nexus, particularly the Nexus 7 which has been the June device for Google, so should we expect a new one this time? Google’s Sundar Pichai has also announced that registrations this year are going to be different so attendees don’t have to go through a lot of pain in order to secure a seat. They would be randomly be picking people from the recieved registrations for the event, just like a lottery ticket!

Nvidia’s New Tegra K1 Faster Than Your Xbox And Playstation!

without comments

tegra-4-unreal-engine4Nvidia has always been showcasing their new chips at CES and this year is no different. Nvidia Unveiled their latest Superphone Chip at the first day of CES 2014 and here is what the company has to offer:

The new K1 chip comes in two pin-to-pin compatible versions. The first is a 32-bit quad-core chip with a 4-plus-1 ARM Cortex A15 CPU, and the second is a custom Nvidia-designed 64-bit ‘Denver’ dual “super core” CPU that is based on the ARMv8 architecture. Both versions of the chip feature the same impressive 192-core Kepler GPU, delivering what Nvidia claims will bring “next-gen console gaming graphics” to mobile devices.

Blown away!? Don’t be excited though, the initial demos did show noticeable lag and while Nvidia does put it off in the name of early prototypes, all these number are not always indicative of day to day performance.

without comments

z-ultra-gpeAnd if you thought that Google had showcased everything for 2013 just yet, the company today announced the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play editions.

While the G-Pad now owns the badge of the first tablet to be featured in the Google Play Edition line-up, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra also came across as a surprise.

The Good part is that the G Pad comes only at $350 for 1080p display, 16GB internal storage (micro SD expandable), 2GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 600 SoC which is a great deal!

While the next deal would be heavy on your pockets, some phablet lovers would like it. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra Google Play Edition comes at $650 for a Snapdragon 800, a 1080p Display , 16 GB Internal Memory (expandable via mircoSD) with LTE support.

Well done Google.

without comments

kitkat-nexus-7-prize-india-1-645x238The Nestle KitKat and Google tie up at the last moment might have worked great for both companies but today a rather troubling news surface online.

According to a tipster and several reports from India, KitKat used Nexus 7 (2013) images when marketing the promotion, but then shipped the older tablet to winners.

When asked about this to Nestle, this is what they had to say : “We hear you’re unhappy. Winners got the Nexus7 tabs available in India in Sept (contest date). The new version launched only in Nov.”

Well, only if companies could make their marketing campaigns better!
