We’re glad we don’t spend too much time in the terrifying world of cyber security, and we’re even more happy to see that there are others who do. Eugene Kaspersky is one of those people, and his Kaspersky Labs is currently building a secure operating system designed to protect the industrial control systems (ICS) in industry and infrastructure. No, this isn’t a competitor to the likes of Windows 8; this is a different level of operating system. In a lengthy blog post, Kaspersky outlines the reasons why a secure OS is necessary and how a typical office computer network is... Read more...
Samsung recently launched the follow up to their Galaxy Tab line of Android-based tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1. Although the original Galaxy Note's form factor didn’t quite conform to either traditional tablets or smartphones, and some even dubbed it a “phablet”, it has been a huge success for Samsung and has sold millions of units worldwide. With the new Galaxy Note 10.1, not only does Samsung leverage the branding of one of its more popular products, but it’s bringing over some similar technology as well. Along with a few new design queues and software tweaks, the Galaxy... Read more...

We recently stepped you through the details of Asus' lower cost Transformer Pad 300 and felt that it was a fine alternative for users looking to save a few pesos. But let's be honest, somebody has to compete with Apple's new iPad and its ultra-high resolution Retina display. Though the Transformer Prime's Super IPS+ display certainly competes in overall brightness and contrast, pixel density of the panel at its native 1280x800 resolution couldn't compete with Apple's super-tight 2048x1536 on the iPad. Alas the innovation and refinement beat goes on with Asus thankfully, and the all new Transformer... Read more...
There are generally two types of iterative processes that manufacturers go through with respect to product development and refinement; there are feature and performance enhancements that result from market feedback and there are enhancements as a result of technology advancements and cost reduction (or both combined). When it launched in December last year, the Asus Transformer Prime was, in our opinion and many others, thought to be one of the best 10-inch Android slates on the market at the time.  That claim could still be made today, if it were not for the recent introduction...

Samsung's Galaxy Tab line continues to expand, with the latest additions coming in the form of the Galaxy Tab 2 Series. The Galaxy Tab 2 Series is available in 10.1-inch and 7.0-inch screen sizes. While these second-generation models clearly borrow some design cues and other specifications from their predecessors, we were a bit surprised to find out that not a lot has changed from the first-generation models to the new Galaxy Tab 2 series, at least in terms of their internal components. Although the Galaxy Tab 2 may not offer a lot of new features from its predecessors in the Galaxy Tab lineup,... Read more...
If you own an HTC device and have been anxiously awaiting an upgrade to Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, you'll be interested to know HTC has released some more details as to what devices will receive an upgrade and roughly when those upgrades will arrive. While we're glad to see HTC is giving us some more information about when the upgrades will be available, we're sad for users of the HTC ChaCha, HTC Salsa, HTC Wildfire S, HTC Explorer, and others who will not be receiving an official update to Android 4.0. HTC tablet users who own the HTC Flyer, HTC EVO View 4G, and HTC Jetstream are also left... Read more...
For some, it probably seems as though that long-awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will never make it to their devices. Samsung Galaxy Note owners have reason to be optimistic, however, as some users in Europe have received that pop-up notification letting them know that it’s their turn. The update has appeared in Germany, and Engadget spotted a screengrab from this fellow in the Netherlands; note his jealous ICS-less Swiss acquaintance in the comments. In addition to the benefits of Android 4.0, Samsung included the Premium Suite of S Pen-optimized apps, including S Note and My... Read more...
The 10.1-inch Asus Transformer Pad 300 boasts a beautiful IPS display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 SoC. Our tablet also came with 32GB of onboard storage plus 8GB of ASUS Webstorage space, along with an SD card slot for expansion (there will be a 16GB option, as well). There’s a 1.2MP webcam on the front and an 8MP camera on the back; although the latter boasts some excellent features, including autofocus, there’s unfortunately no flash...

Google just announced a new Devices section for its Google Play web store. With this new section comes the ability to buy the Galaxy Nexus HSPA+ directly from Google. That's right, folks, if you've been waiting to get your hands on this smartphone, you can quickly and easily pick one up directly from Google rather than importing it from overseas. The 16GB version of the smartphone sells for $399 and is completely contract free and unlocked. With its HSPA+ radio, the phone will work with T-Mobile and AT&T's networks here in the U.S. Galaxy Nexus now on sale in Google Play We started shipping... Read more...
History has a habit of repeating itself; just as we had to burn through our review of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime in short order, we're on the fast track again with the new ASUS Transformer Pad 300 (TF300T).  With a tablet this hot off the press and moving to retail channels so quickly, we wanted to get the word out to you as soon as the laws of physics would allow. It’s a bloody shame, too, because we would have liked to spend more time poring over every feature and setting of this beautiful machine. Alas, our time with this tablet-come-netbook is short thus far but we'll promise... Read more...
Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich) has been available for a little while now, but many carriers and manufacturers are still working hard to roll out official updates. Today, Samsung began rolling out an Android 4.0 update to its unlocked Galaxy S II devices in America. While users of carrier-branded Galaxy S II devices will continue to wait for an update, there are plenty of carriers and manufacturers that are working on updates of their own. According to details shared with Droid Life, Verizon Wireless is getting ready to release an Android 4.0 update for the Motorola Xoom (3G/4G) tablet as... Read more...
If you have an Acer A100 or A500 tablet, you may be wondering when that promised update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is coming. Previously, Acer said the update will be available in April. Now that April is winding down, Acer is getting more specific with a date. On Acer's support page, the company revealed that US owners of the 7-inch Acer A100 and 10.1-inch A500 tablets will begin receiving the ICS update starting April 27th. Unfortunately for users who own the AT&T A501 variant of the A500, no update is currently planned for the tablet. For A100 and A500 users, we expect Acer's skin... Read more...
Coby isn’t exactly a household electronics name, but the company is churning out low-cost products at a fairly good clip. Two of the tablets the company demoed at CES, the Coby Kyros MID7042 and MID9742, are shipping now, with four more to follow soon at different screen sizes. These tablets are definitely what you would consider inexpensive, with the MID7042 coming in $179 and the MID9742 costing $279. The MID7042 is a 7-inch tablet (800x480), while the MID9742 boasts 9.7 inches (1024 x 768) of screen real estate. Both devices run on Cortex A8 chips, have 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage...
