No matter how hard Intel is trying, things don’t seem to go too well for them in the mobile market. According to sources quoted by Digitimes, the sales of the Intel-based smartphones aren’t going so well, and now two of their main partners, Motorola and Lenovo, are delaying their own Medfield-based tablets (and probably phones as well) at least until November. At that point, we’ll probably be too impressed by the new Android 5.0 Nexus devices, featuring chips like the S4 Pro, Exynos 5250 and even OMAP 5, to care for Medfield phones running Jelly Bean. So things aren’t looking…

lenovo ideatab s2109A

  Lenovo was missing from the Android tablet scene for a while, before announcing the Ideatab S2109A back in April. Announced as a 9.7″ slate for the budget-conscious, this tablet promised to provide the perfect mix of performance and affordability. Unfortunately, the release was a little too late, with the Nexus 7 skewing the concepts of “specifications vs price” a bit, and now the $350 price tag seems a little steep. Today, we bring to you the unboxing and a quick overview of the Lenovo Ideatab S2109A. What does $350 get you? Let’s take a look! Specifications 9.7″ HD IPS…

cm10-cyanogenmod

Google’s fresh new Nexus 7 Tablet comes with the latest (and some say greatest) Android version out of the box, but that hasn’t stopped independent devs having their way with the new gadget’s software. While I’m sure most regular users are more than content with Nexus 7’s Jelly Bean official build, I’ll bet there are people amongst you who are dying to try out something different too. What better alternative than a CyanogenMod 10 port, slightly modified and supposedly working like a charm? Before getting overly excited, you should know that everybody’s favorite independent dev team hasn’t yet released an…

Nexus-7-UAE-Dubai

Most folks in the US, Canada, UK, and Australia have gotten their units of Nexus 7 by now. Others, meanwhile, await Google’s announcement on when it’s planning to bring the Jelly Bean tablet to the rest of the world. If you happen to reside in the Middle East, you may want to make that short trip to Dubai to snatch one. Axiom Telecom has announced that they have Google’s premier tablet in stock. The Nexus 7 is listed on its website for AED 1,299, which translates to about $350. Pricey? Yes. But that’s something that you’ll have to swallow for…

Moto-Xoom-Jelly-Bean

speedyr6 Getting jealous seeing those jolly jelly beans on the Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus S? The official Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the Motorola Xoom will be rolled out soon, but you can try your luck by downloading and installing the OTA file yourself, which has been uploaded by Google on its website. Manually flashing the Jelly Bean OTA file on your Motorola Xoom will be quite a challenge though, because the file is meant only for “soak testers” and it may still contain bugs and the likes. Those who tried (and failed) have reported a “space…

Intel Jelly Bean

The Verge Intel, the world’s number one supplier of PC processors, has neglected getting in the Android game until a few months ago, thus allowing ARM to easily dominate the market. The Santa Clara-based company is now finally looking to make a push in the Android world, and, while its first steps might seem a bit hesitant, its future plans are pretty bold. There might not be many Intel-based Android gadgets available for sale right now, but, according to official claims, they will soon get Jelly Bean updates. The news comes from the guys at PCWorld, who’ve had a very…

After showing Nexus 7 buyers how to perform the initial tablet setup in a short video yesterday, Google released a new mini video tutorial that unseasoned Android users should check out. Just like last time, we’re looking at a 75-second clip that deals with creating home screens, adding widgets and apps to those home screens and organizing apps into folders according to your needs – in short, you’ll learn how to customize the tablet’s home screen. It’s all very simple and straightforward, especially if you have owned an Android device or a mobile device before the Nexus 7. In case…

huawei mediapad 7 lite

Huawei has been on a roll lately! As popular as Huawei is in its home market, the Chinese company is now making a move for a piece of the Android market share worldwide. And they have great products to back up their bid. After a very successful showing at this year’s Mobile World Conference, devices such as the Ascend P1 and the Ascend P1S are finally making it to the market, and we’re still eagerly awaiting the release of Huawei’s quad-core powerhouse, the Ascend D Quad. Huawei is not restricting itself to the smartphone world either, but is releasing some…

The craze for Google’s Jelly Bean is picking up, like a storm brewing in the distance, ready to unleash its wrath just to get a taste of that currently awaited Android OS. There’s no doubt that users are willing to do anything to get it, but Jelly Bean is just not coming yet, except for some devices that have already received their update. But, one of the goodies that Jelly Bean brings is coming your way. It’s a leaked Google Music app version 4.3.605 which could probably let you taste Jelly Bean — or at least a small sweet bean….

asus transformer pad tf300t review

When it comes to manufacturing high quality tablet devices, Asus doesn’t cut corners. From build quality, to hardware and software, Asus tends to hit the nail on the head when creating tablets. Their recent onslaught of devices have all been well received by almost everyone who’s had a chance to use them. I had the pleasure of receiving the Transformer Pad TF300T, which is basically the TF201 Prime’s little brother. But, make no mistake, the TF300T holds it’s own against any competitor, thanks to an impressive arsenal of specs, software, and accessories. Hardware The TF300T is no underdog. In fact, it’s packing the specs…
