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... Read more...
It looks like HP has decided to take a page from the retail guidebook, as it's teasing us with some holiday-targeted product well before the holiday season could even be considered "close'. This product comes to us in the form of five notebooks, with three targeting the low-end part of the spectrum, and the other two... Read more...
The date's been set: We're going to learn all about Apple's latest iPhone on September 9th. We discovered that date earlier this week, and without a delay, speculation around the Web ran rampant.

It feels like we've been anticipating Apple's forthcoming iPhone models since the last ones were released. According to the Wall Street Journal, though, we're not going to have that much more of a wait: Apple is expected to hold a press event on Tuesday, September 9th. It's not clear at this point if invitations have begun to go out, but we're... Read more...
The past year has seen a number of high-end smartphones launch with 2GB of RAM, and with 64-bit SoCs to make a big splash in the future, it's sure to become a lot more common - even trickling down to lower-end models at some point. Of course, as is the way with technology, 2GB of RAM is going to feel small in the... Read more...
Earlier this week, we talked about Geeksphone's Blackphone, a smartphone that puts privacy and security front and center. In some ways, the goals of that phone might sound a little overkill for some, but after learning about Boeing's upcoming offering, it will seem like child's play. Boeing's phone doesn't seem to...

Google's known for a lot of things, but where privacy's concerned, those things are not too kosher for a lot of people. In fact, Google mines so much data on us - sometimes even if we're nameless - that some would rather avoid anything that has to do with the company. Of course, pulling that off is easier said than...

Sometimes, it feels like some companies keep a potential product on hand just in case it needs to be launched to help dampen some fire. In Lumia Icon's case, that fire is yesterday's rumor that Nokia is soon to be getting into the Android market, with a supposed reveal to happen at this month's Mobile World Congress... Read more...
For those looking to pick up a feature-rich Windows 8.1 tablet, ASUS' VivoTab Note 8 is an attractive offering, and the best part is, it's just hit the Microsoft Store. That's the upside - the downside is that as of the time of writing, it's shown as being "Out of stock" - a bit surprising given the listing just... Read more...
The past couple of years have been very good to tablets: They've become much more powerful, are being equipped with true HD resolutions, and best of all, have price tags that would have seemed impossible just a couple of years ago. But, when it comes to Black Friday or Cyber Monday, we sometimes have to reevaluate... Read more...
It seems that with Kinect on the Xbox One, there's more than meets the camera's eye. According to Bloomberg, Microsoft for the first time has built its own processor in-house, and it's destined for Kinect. Oddly, there's been no mention of where the chip is actually being built, and there's really no safe guess... Read more...
A couple of weeks ago, we reported on some comments made by ASUS' CEO Jonney Shih about Windows RT. Simply put, "The result is not very promising". It's no surprise, then, to learn today that the company has officially decided to pull out of the Windows RT market, and few could blame it. Shih said in a new interview... Read more...
It's been quite the week for memory. Last Friday, we learned that Micron absorbed Elpida, and just earlier today, Samsung showed off its "3D" vertical NAND flash memory. Now, we have potentially the most interesting story of them all, coming to us from start-up Crossbar. The company claims that it has developed the... Read more...
A few weeks ago, the analyst company ABI Research published a report claiming that Intel's new CloverTrail+ platform (dual-core Medfield) for smartphones was significantly faster and more power efficient than anything ARM's various partners were shipping.

Surprise! A new iPad is en route. Didn't see that one coming, right?

It could be assumed that Apple might have enjoyed the idea... Read more...
When Google launched its Nexus 10, and it happened to be produced by Samsung, not ASUS, it seemed up in the air whether or not ASUS was going to be out of the picture from that point forward. Well, thanks to a new FCC filing, we can see that ASUS remains safe and sound - it just appears that it's going to be... Read more...
The mobile market is a bitter one for Intel at the moment, as up to this point, it's been unable to secure any major design wins using its Atom-based SoCs. There have been a couple of phone releases, but they've been far and few between, and mostly targeted at Europe. A couple of months ago, one win came in the form of ASUS' Fonepad, a 7-inch...

Just days ago, the IDC reported that smartphone shipments outpaced those of feature phones for the first time, and although feature phones offer an extremely low-cost option for those needing basic mobile communication, it’s clear that more people are hungry for the amenities of smartphones. Fortunately, low-end... Read more...
Well, here's an idea I hadn't considered before. Because most tablets don't offer the ability to plug in an external display, sharing what's on your screen with others usually involves passing the tablet around. Obviously, this isn't too ideal for something like an office meeting, where slides are being shown. But... Read more...
Intel's François Piednoël is no fan of the competition making claims about what his company can and can't do, so he's taken to YouTube to post a video to showcase what the company's upcoming Clover Trail+ SoC is capable of. A quote that helps lead into the video comes from ARM, which claims that "Intel... Read more...
