Reports of faulty GPS on New Nexus 7 leads Google to launch investigation

without comments

nexus72013

The New Nexus 7 may be one of the most significant consumer electronics gadgets to hit the market this year, but that doesn’t mean that it is 100% perfect. According to recent reports, which have surfaced on most of the significant Android portals such as Android Police, XDA Developers and Google’s own forums, the new Nexus 7 has faulty GPS performance.

A multitude of reports are coming in from new Nexus 7 owners reporting that they have massive GPS issues on their new affordable, feature rich tablet. Apparently users are complaining that their Nexus 7 devices have GPS signal for a few minutes before it goes away completely and not coming back on. Google has apparently noticed the issue and it’s under an investigation to see if they can fix the issue, which could spread globally if left untreated considering how quickly the new Nexus 7 is rolling out across the globe.

It seems that the issue is experienced on almost all devices, with most users not picking up the issue as they barely use the GPS features for long enough. For now, it seems that Apple Maps may be your best option, so buy an iPad Mini!

ASUS looking to make a splash in the Android market according to latest roadmap

without comments

asus-roadmap-2013-08-09-02

It seems that ever since Google gave ASUS a taste of having a market leading tablet in the form of the ASUS Google Nexus 7, maybe even the New Nexus 7, they seem to have the sentimentality that all their products will succeed, that’s where the PadFone and FonePad series comes in, which hasn’t been doing all that well.

According to a roadmap shown off by ASUS at a recent conference in Taiwan, ASUS has quite a few new products up their sleeves, most of which is aimed directly at the US market. The first seems to be the ASUS PadFone Mini, a smaller version of the company’s strange phone-tablet duo. Second, is the ASUS MeMOFone HD 5, which is clearly set to be a smartphone with a 5-inch HD display, whether it be 1080p or 720p remains a mystery. Lastly, is the ASUS MeMO Pad HD 8, a slightly larger, and improved, version of the MeMO Pad HD 7, and likely the company’s offering to combat the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.

It remains to be seen just how well the company will fair, but the slides clearly shows that the company wants sales larger that 1 million units, meaning the bar isn’t set very high.
