Chromebooks based on Google’s Chrome OS are making some inroads in the notebook market — especially in education — but the same can’t be said for two other form-factors of Chrome OS-based computers: the Chromebox and the Chromebase. Acer hopes to at least shift some momentum towards Chromebases (all-in-one Chrome OS desktops) with the introduction of the aptly named Acer Chromebase. The focal point of the Acer Chromebase is of course its massive 21.5-inch display, which packs in Full HD resolution (1080p). Acer also says that this is the first Chromebase to come with a touch display (10-point multi-touch).... Read more...
As CES kicks off this year, we're seeing a number of new products from companies that focus on two critical markets: ultramobile computer hardware and high-end enthusiast equipment.

Google’s Project Ara modular smartphone project took a huge leap forward in late October, as the company for the first time publicly showed a fully functional prototype device running Android. At the time Google also discussed the promising progress that was being made moving from Spiral 1 prototypes to more space-efficient Spiral 2 prototypes. This month, Google is ready to provide another update on the status of Project Ara and there are plenty of juicy details to savor. Ara project leader Paul Eremenko was delighted to announce that his team received three demo units of Spiral 2 prototypes from... Read more...

After months of anticipation, Google finally revealed its Nexus 9 tablet the other day, and overall, it looks sweet. Aesthetically, it's pleasing to the eye, and under-the-hood, it sports a 64-bit SoC, courtesy of NVIDIA's Denver-based Tegra K1. And, if you love pixels, the Nexus 9 sure has a lot of them: 3.1 million, to be exact. All-in-all, an impressive offering. At the time of announcement, though, we weren't given performance metrics, and that's kind of a big deal given the fact that the Nexus 9 sports the first 64-bit SoC backed by a 64-bit OS. It's also the first device with NVIDIA's 64-bit... Read more...
It was originally rumored that Google might unveil its forthcoming Nexus 9 tablet (codenamed Volantis) built by HTC on October 8, only to be supplanted by a more recent rumor suggesting that October 15 or 16 are more likely targets. While the specific date remains up the air, the good news is that the Nexus 9 is still said to be launching this month. The folks at Bright Side of the News claim to have confirmed the October launch with its unnamed sources, while adding that they've also learned it will retail for $399. That's quite a bit higher than the Nexus 7's $229 price tag, and if it holds true,... Read more...
It looks as though the rumored Nexus 9 tablet is indeed in the works and will be manufactured by HTC, a company that has largely avoided the competitive tablet game. Although neither Google nor HTC have officially revealed the Android tablet, The Wall Street Journal is reporting confirmation from its sources that Google chose HTC instead of its longtime tablet-building partner, Samsung. Add that to NVIDIA’s inadvertent outing of HTC as the Nexus 9 maker in a legal document, and HTC’s involvement in the Nexus 9 looks solid. The HTC One is proof that HTC can create a winner. Now we'll... Read more...
We now feel reasonably confident in saying that HTC is building Google's Nexus 9 tablet and that it will be powered by NVIDIA's mighty Tegra K1 platform. The reason we believe all this to be the case even though there hasn't been an official announcement is because NVIDIA tipped its hand in a legal document accusing Qualcomm and Samsung of infringing on its GPU technology patents. The keen-eyed folks at Bright Side of News discovered the inadvertent leak in an NVIDIA document that states, "The HTC Nexus 9, expected in the third quarter of 2014, is also expected to use the Tegra K1." That's quite... Read more...
The path to pole position in mobile lies in the 64-bit fast lane, a place Apple has been cruising along in since dropping its custom A7 chip underneath the hood of its iPhone 5S. Now it looks as though Google's Nexus family is going 64-bit as well. Based on recent leaks, it's likely to happen with with the Nexus 9 tablet (codenamed Volantis) being built by HTC. The Nexus 9 will take the baton from the Nexus 7 as it goes up against Apple's iPad mini tablet, which is also powered by an A7 System-on-Chip (SoC). However, the Nexus 9 will say goodbye to Qualcomm and hello to NVIDIA and its speedy Tegra... Read more...
Ever since NVIDIA unveiled its 64-bit Project Denver CPU at CES last year, there's been discussion over what the core might be and what kind of performance it would offer. Visibly, the chip is huge -- more than 2x the size of the Cortex-A15 that powers the 32-bit version of Tegra K1. Now we know a bit more about the core, and it's like nothing we expected. It is, however, somewhat similar to the designs we've seen in the past from the vanished CPU manufacturer Transmeta. Project Denver, Transmeta, and 64-bit ARM Project Denver's 64-bit flavor. When it designed Project Denver, NVIDIA chose to step... Read more...
Much in the same way that netbooks found a niche and became hugely popular, Google's Chromebook platform has found its wings and is flying off of store shelves right next Windows- and Mac-based laptops. And just as Acer helped popularize netbooks, the company is at the forefront of the Chromebook movement in pioneering fashion. As such, Acer today unveiled the Chromebook 13, the first of its kind to feature an NVIDIA Tegra K1 quad-core processor. In doing so, Acer and NVIDIA essentially just tag teamed a new generation of Chromebooks. Armed with a Tegra K1 chip, the Chromebook 13 offers unmatched... Read more...
Google hasn't been bashful about tapping into various manufacturers to build Nexus-brand devices, and if you've been listening to the chatter coming out of the rumor mill, you may have heard that HTC's been working on a bigger size tablet to serve as the forthcoming "Nexus 9." Some recently leaked specs and photos would suggest that this is true. According to the folks at Android Police, the Nexus 9 -- otherwise known by its codename, HTC Volantis -- rocks an 8.9-inch display with a 2048x1440 resolution (281 pixels per inch) powered by NVIDIA's mighty 64-bit Tegra K1 System-on-Chip (Soc) and 2GB...
