The new Nexus 7 does not fall short when it comes to power either, with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 Quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. The device also comes equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and wireless charging . The most important part of any device is its battery and Google have given it quite a strong 3950 mAh battery, which is good to see. Nexus 7 is great for gaming and with favorites like Prince of Persia: Shadow and The Flame, Asphalt 8, and Riptide GP 2, you can tilt, tap, and touch your way to the top. The brand new Play Games app lets you track your achievements, play with (or against) friends and gamers around the world, and discover new exciting games.

AT&T bundle package offers the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 for $199 with every new Galaxy Smartphone purchased

We’ve got some good news for all our At&T customers who are interested in buying a Samsung smartphone anytime anytime soon. The American cellular giants is offering Samsung’s latest little tablet, the Galaxy Note 8.0 for just $199 that’s $200 off the full price with a two-year contract when you buy either a Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active or Galaxy Note II smartphone from the carrier. An important thing to be noted here is that even though this bundle offer is a bit of an eye-candy, it does come with a price. Apparently the Galaxy Note 8.0 with Wi-Fi retails for $399 so if you’re buying AT&T’s LTE model with a $10 monthly fee for data, you’re actually spending $200 out front plus $240 over the two-year contract, for a total cost of $440 but  its a sweet bargain nonetheless if you ask me. For all those who still haven’t heard about the Galaxy Note 8.0, here’s a quick reminder of what it actually has to offer. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is an interesting mid-sized device (tablet) featuring an 8-inch display with a 1280 x 800-pixel resolution, a 1.6 GHZ quad core processor, 2GB RAM, 16 GB of internal storage with microSD card supported upto 64GB, 5 MP back-facing camera, 1.3 MP front-facing camera, Wi-Fi ,Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with S Pen, 4,600 mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The tablet measures at 210.8 x 135.9 x 7.95 mm and weighs 345 grams for the 4G LTE version.   The Galaxy Note 8.0 also has several new work-friendly features including SAFE™ (Samsung for Enterprise) technology, which helps to ensure a secure work environment whether you’re at the office, on the road, or at home. Polaris™ Office makes it easier to view, create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations right on their tablet. Air View™ allows users to preview emails, calendar events, photos and videos just by hovering over the screen with the S Pen™. There are a variety of entertainment features on the Galaxy Note 8.0 as well, including the new search and recommendation service WatchON™,  which makes personalized recommendations for new movies and TV shows from multiple content sources such as live TV, YouTube, and streaming video-on-demand sources. If you’d rather curl up with a good book, the new Reading Mode creates a comfortable reading experience in all lighting conditions.     Available for a limited time, customers also receive 50GB of free storage with AT&T Locker (using the latest version of the app users can upgrade to the free 50GB by selecting the Account tab and My Plan), making it easy to store videos, pictures, and files and access them from multiple devices. AT&T have announced that the offer...

Android Gaming Tablet Wikipad to make its long awaited debut on June 11th at E3 2013

Android Gaming Tablet Wikipad to make its long awaited debut on June 11th at E3 2013

With E3 being right around the corner, it feels fitting for most companies to come up with their new devices during this time of the year. One such device is the Wikipad which has supposedly been in the news since almost a year but we never actually got to see the device in existence…till now ! According to the guys behind this new and upcoming controller-enabled Android gaming tablet would be made available to public starting June 11th, the same day E3 kicks off. Smart move on the part of the company isn’t it ? The Wikipad is a 7-inch tablet that comes with NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage, a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, HDMI-out, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi N and of-course Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (its an Android tablet after all). The gaming slate also comes with a special dock, which connects to the Wikipad from the bottom with a proprietary connector. Its somewhat designed similar to the Xbox 360 controller, though according to the company there is little relation to Microsoft’s nearly seven-year-old design. The controller features two sets of triggers, bumpers, and analog sticks, as well as four face buttons, start, and select and is designed to cover the speakers and flow sound through acoustic tubes out the front grill for better audio performance. The dock also has a port to connect it to a power source on the back. As per the company’s official announcement, the Wikipad would be sold for $250 and would easily be available from Walmart, Bestbuy and TigerDirect who are the initial retailers in the United States. Availability of the device in other parts of the world was not mentioned but we are anticipating it to be as soon as it starts rolling out in the US. With other gaming devices such as the Ouya and the not so long ago announced Nvidia’s own little gaming wonder boy SHIELD, expected to launch some time this year, looking at the price and specs of the Wikipad could surely make it a good competitor for the aforementioned devices. So which one would you guys be going for ? Do share in some of those gaming instincts of yours with us. Cheers...

Introducing The World’s First Dual OS Tablet – The ASUS Transformer AiO

Introducing The World’s First Dual OS Tablet – The ASUS Transformer AiO

ASUS have made a good name for themselves when it comes to creating devices with dual functionality. It was just last week at MWC where the company unveiled the FonePad which is a first of a kind tablet which can make phone calls. Today the Taiwanese Tech giants have unveiled another work of marvel with the launch of the ASUS Transformer AiO. The device which measures close to 18 inches is not just your ordinary Tablet which you can carry around everywhere. What it is actually is a dual booting Hybrid Entertainment Center which runs on both Android and Microsoft’s Windows 8 Operating System. Confused ? Surprised ? Well to be very honest we were too when we first laid our eyes on this little monster.   Now coming to the interesting side of things. Let us begin with the hardware which this little piece of marvel has to offer. The tablet is actually a 2 in 1 computing machine which when detached from its docking station, turns into a full fledged Tablet and while it is docked, it actually functions as a full juiced up PC. The hardware which differs for both the Tablet and the PC is divided into two parts. The tablet (when not docked) which runs on Android 4.1 Jellybean comes juiced up with an Nvidia Tegra 3 processing chip, 2GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. Impressed ? Now wait till you read further and find out as to exactly what ASUS have in store for us on the PC side of things.    Well to begin with, the device does come to life on its large and bright 18 inch 1920×1080 LED display, which currently makes the AiO the largest commercial Android tablet (at least for now). As mentioned earlier, the Windows 8 powered device (it doesn’t sound right to call an 18 inch device a TABLET does it?) surely packs a punch. It comes bundled with a a third-generation Intel Core i5-3350P CPU, 8GB DDR3 RAM and 1TB of storage. Sounds intriguing doesn’t it ? To be very honest, we were a little perplexed to see Windows 8 and Android side-by-side on this kind of device, not least due to Microsoft’s keenness to promote Windows’ tablet credentials. But ASUS is also touting the AiO’s ability to run Windows 8 in remote desktop mode on the tablet UI, so you’ll  have that option open to you while you’re in tablet mode and that is quite a smart move on ASUS’s part. The Trasnformer AiO which is scheduled to release sometime during the second quarter of 2013 in North America is rumored to be priced at around $1299. We’ll be on high alert once the device...
