  Its hardly been a matter of weeks since we got our hands on Sony’s upcoming flagship phones of the year, the Xperia Z and the Xperia ZL. If that wasn’t enough to impress us all, Sony have another exciting device in store for us which is surely going to raise a few eyebrows. You guessed it right folks ! The company has recently unveiled its new Android Tablet called the Xperia Tablet Z which not just comes packed in a sleek and smart design, it also offers some eye candy specs which include a water and dust proof 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200-pixel full 1080p HD display, 2GB of RAM, a Qualcomm 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 8.1-megapixel rear camera and a massive 6,000mAh battery.     Now you all probably must be wondering that a device of such magnitude would come in a thick (bulky) frame which would be hard to be carried around everywhere. Right ? Well that’s the interesting part. Apparently, Sony have managed to pack all these specs into an ultra-thin, lightweight frame. Unbelievable as it may sound, the Xperia Z  is only 6.9 millimeters thick and weighs not more than 495 grams, making it the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet in the world. Sounds impressive doesn’t it ? The Tablet which is scheduled to be made available to public sometime in early Spring is said to come bundled with Android 4.1, Jelly Bean out of the box. Even though the exact pricing and release details haven’t been revealed as yet, we are expecting an LTE-enabled version of the device to be released soon on Japanese network carrier NTT DoCoMo.

Samsung rumored to launch a 13″ Tablet along with a cheaper Galaxy Note II [Rumor]

Samsung rumored to launch a 13″ Tablet along with a cheaper Galaxy Note II [Rumor]

The Galaxy SIII mini has paved the way for many future devices and with that said, Samsung are working on a cheap alternative to the Galaxy Note II which has been quite successful since its international launch. The currently unknown device is expected to be released in the European market some time next year and may or may not have the “Note” branding attached to its name and according to our sources, would not be sold with the S Pen. The device would come with an LCD display instead of the traditional (and relatively quite costly) AMOLED panel currently found on the Galaxy SIII and the Note II. Any further details regarding pricing and availability have bot been confirmed as yet.     Another hot rumor buzzing around is about Samsung’s new 13.3” tablet along with a detachable keyboard dock which would or could be sold as a separate accessory. With the looks of it, the tablet has all the juice and jazz to go hand-in-hand with Asus’s Transformer series and a few other notable devices in the same category. Whether the device would run on Android or Microsoft’s new Windows 8 is yet to be known.    ...

Skype 3.0 for Android designed specially for Tablets

Skype 3.0 for Android designed specially for Tablets

Skype for Android has now been updated to version 3.0 which adds a few notable changes to its interface along with a few other small tweaks. One of the major overhauling done in the app is that it has now been fully customized for Tablets. Till now, the scaled mobile version of the app used to work just fine on their larger screen relatives but with the new update, user’s get a whole new look and feeling to the way they have been traditionally using Skype all this time.     Other noteworthy additions to the update include the ability to sign in with a Microsoft account which sounds logical since the company is now owned by the software giants. There is also improved audio and a host of bug fixes that Skype unsurprisingly chose not to go into much detail about. The sole downside of the Tablet versions is that the app only supports “landscape mode” so this might stir in some problems for people who prefer to use it in the vertical mode as well. Besides this little niggle, the app seems to be loved and adored by all. Give it a try by downloading it for free from the Play Store....

Google Nexus S and Motorola Xoom would NOT be getting Android 4.2

Google Nexus S and Motorola Xoom would NOT be getting Android 4.2

We wouldn’t like to be the bearer of bad news but unfortunately we don’t have any other choice. Google have announced (with a very heavy heart) today that the Motorola Xoom and the Google Nexus S would NOT be getting official Jelly Bean 4.2 updates due to their hardware limitations. Google’s lead engineer, Jean-Baptiste Queru , had this to say about the two devices regarding Android 4.2 and their compatibility: “There is no support for 4.2 on Nexus S and Xoom. Those devices should  continue using 4.1.2. I can’t comment about the future of Nexus S and Xoom, sorry.” Since its official global launch a few days back, Android 4.2 has been creating a lot of buzz with majority of people getting glued to a few new features that are part and parcel of the Android’s latest OS update. To be very honest, I had my doubts from day one regarding the compatibility issues which might occur due to the devices aging hardware. No offense to either of the devices though as both have proved time and again what they were and still are capable of but as they say, all good things have to come to an end at some point in time and it now seems that this could and just might be the end of the road for these two amazing devices which have been user favorites since more than 2 years now.     So for all you Nexus S and Xoom user’s out there don’t get too dejected on hearing this and just try to take out a few positives out of your devices just for old times sake. Many people are still stuck on ICS if that’s going to make you guys feel a little...
