Asus PadFone X has its specs officially revealed by AT&T

On January 7, Asus announced the PadFone X for AT&T. So almost three months ago. Time has passed (a lot of it, really), yet up until this moment we didn’t even have a full spec list for the device, let alone a price or release date. Today though AT&T finally decided it’s time to at least let us know what to expect from the PadFone X in terms of specs, while still saying absolutely nothing about when it will be for...

UK: Nexus 7 now just £149.99, 25% cheaper than before

If you want to get a good, small Android tablet, then the Nexus 7 is it. Decently priced, with adequate performance, and receiving immediate software updates from Google, it’s been selling pretty well – despite the growing competition in the 7-inch tablet space. In the UK, the base model (with 16 GB of built-in storage space) has been retailing for £199.99 ever since it launched last year. Now, though, you can get this...

Android 4.5 and Google Nexus 8 tablet coming in July?

Android 4.4 KitKat is currently running on a very small number of devices, with most manufacturers still working on updates for at least some of their past wares, but Google is obviously already working on the next version of its mobile operating system. Over the past few years, one of the two new versions of Android that Google released each year was announced during its I/O developer conference. The dates for this year’s...

Asus PadFone Infinity Lite unveiled with lesser specs, lower price tag

The ‘Lite’ trend seems to be catching on in the mobile world. This is the re-use of existing device names with the word ‘Lite’ added in at the end in order to signify a lower-end model than the original. Samsung’s been doing this a lot lately (though it looks like it prefers the ‘Neo’ suffix to achieve the same goal). And now Asus has joined the club by unveiling the PadFone Infinity Lite....

Nexus 7 with LTE now available from Verizon for $249.99 with contract

Right on schedule, the Asus-made Google Nexus 7 tablet has become available at Verizon today. The carrier is selling the LTE-enabled version of the Nexus 7, though it’s very late to the party. This model has been out in the Play Store for many months now, but Verizon has so far dragged its feet and had trouble certifying the tablet for use on its network. That’s all done now, and if you so wish you can purchase a Nexus 7...

Nexus 7 with 4G LTE lands at Verizon on February 13

After a very, very long period of getting it certified for use on its network, Verizon is finally ready to launch the 2013 Nexus 7 this week. This event has been a long time coming, with most people expecting it to happen last year soon after Google announced the new tablet. But Verizon being Verizon, things dragged out quite a bit, and here we are – and it’s already February 2014. Anyway, if you’ve been craving a...

Nexus 8 rumored to be launching at the end of April

Google is once again being rumored to be prepping an 8-inch Nexus tablet. This time, though, we even get a purported release time frame – the new tablet should be out by the end of April. Why a Nexus 8? Well, apparently for two reasons. First, the 2013 Nexus 7 hasn’t been selling well at all. It’s done much worse than its predecessor despite its better specs. That might be because when the first Nexus 7 came out it...

8″ Asus Nexus tablet with Intel CPU rumored for this year

Apparently the 2013 Asus Nexus 7 tablet will get a successor this year, but with a twist or two thrown in for good measure. Now we obviously aren’t surprised that Google is working on a new small tablet for 2014, as 2013 saw the second-gen Nexus 7 released around one year after the original launched in 2012. It’s also not surprising that Asus is said to be making the next small Nexus tablet – after all, it’s...
