Dell was hardly making a name for itself in the smartphone / tablet space when they once decided to stop manufacturing them anymore.
Turns out the engineers at Dell were busy cooking a recipe so fine that one may just drool over it. Dell has just partnered with Intel to launch the world’s thinnest tablet. This new Android-based tablet is the Dell Venue 8 7000, and according to the launch information, the device is just 6 mm thick. If you compare it to Apple’s thinnest iPad mini, we’re talking about a 1.22 mm difference in thickness.
Specs aren’t known yet, but we shall keep you posted.
What XLTE does is enables double the bandwidth to the receiver by using the existing 700MHz band with AWS bands. Phones that can receive the AWS bands will surely notice a substantial difference in speeds, and even older, 700MHz only phones should see less saturation and improved speeds since the newer band would be taking off the load.
There a lot of devices supported, (find all models in this .PDF). The list includes the iPhone 5S and 5C, One M8 and Galaxy S5, the Moto X, and even Windows Phone and BlackBerry models.
Nvidia 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.
