Kavcom revamps popular ’90s RTS Z, releases it on Android as Z Origins

Z Origins
by 1 year ago

Back when gamers only had a couple of options to satisfy their passion, and none that involved gaming on the go, The Bitmap Brothers became famous with a little RTS (real-time strategy) computer game called simply Z (pronounced “Zed”). Times changed, gaming evolved, mobile gaming appeared and gained attention, The Bitmap Brothers disappeared, but Z returned, courtesy of Kavcom, a name that doesn’t say much in the developing world these days. Kavcom revamped Z and came with a special iOS version of the game in July 2011, leaving Android fans pining for some good ol’ fashioned RTS fun. Fortunately, the…

First Acer Iconia Tab A210 commercial insists on the tablet’s software (video)

Iconia A210
by 1 year ago

Acer has been a very busy bee in the Android tablet world this year, and the company’s most recent additions to its tab lineup can’t go unnoticed by any self-respecting tech lover. The Iconia Tab A210 has been shown off for the first time back in June without much fuss, but the 10-incher seems to be gaining some momentum. Although it doesn’t yet have an official release date or pricing details attached to its name, the new A210 might be the subject of an exciting marketing campaign, kicked off with a YouTube promotional video. The commercial, posted on Acer’s official…

Sony Xperia Tablet leaks, to hit the market in September starting at $450

by 1 year ago

When Sony announced it will organize a special “unveiling event” in Berlin at the end of August, we knew that the company was preparing to launch at least a couple of new and exciting products. However, it will be hard for the Japanese to surprise us in any way, as their future devices have been almost certainly revealed. The Hayabusa phone has been known for a while to be the global version of the already unveiled Xperia GX, the Mint has leaked not long ago, and now an “Xperia Tablet” has been revealed online. The leak seems very trustworthy, not due…

GREE unleashes free to play military game Modern War in Google Play

by 1 year ago

Although it operates the largest social networking service in Japan and it has seen some success with a couple of basic, but addictive iOS games, GREE hasn’t made much efforts to get into the Android game (both literally and figuratively). The only GREE title available in Google Play until a few days ago was Crime City, a crime game that probably doesn’t say much to many of you. However, the new Modern War might just put GREE on the Android map, as it looks like a pretty fun and challenging little MMO war game. Before anything, I have to warn…

MetroPCS plans for the rest of the year leaked, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S Lightray, Huawei Verge and others coming soon

Samsung Galaxy S3
by 1 year ago

MetroPCS might not be in the exact same league as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile, but the regional carrier has grown steadily in the last couple of years, attracting more and more customers. Based on a leaked roadmap, however, it seems like we ain’t seen nothing yet, and MetroPCS might be looking to seriously step it up by the end of the year. The carrier is planning to add no less than eight new smartphones to its portfolio in 2012, if the leak’s source proves accurate, and the leading name on the list is by far the Samsung Galaxy S3….

Sony Xperia GX/SX release dates confirmed

by 1 year ago

We’ve been waiting for Sony’s Xperia GX (aka Hayabusa) for quite some time now, hoping that it will be able to stir things up in the high-end phone niche. Anticipation grew gradually over the last few months, as we found out more and more about the handheld, and we now finally know when it will start selling. As you might already know, the Xperia GX is the phone’s exclusive branding for Japan, where it will ship via NTT DoCoMo starting Thursday, August 9. One week before that (meaning the day after tomorrow), the carrier will open pre-orders for Sony’s new…

Wikipad gaming tablet gets official spec sheet

by 1 year ago

Although it looked like vaporware back at the CES in January, when it was unveiled for the first time, it seems like the WikiPad Android gaming tablet, is in fact, as real as they come and is gearing up for an imminent release. However, the 8-incher from back then has undergone a bunch of serious changes, both cosmetic and technical, some of them making it far more intriguing. First off, the Wikipad tablet/gaming console is an 8-incher no more and will come with a more generous 10.1-inch IPS display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and 1280 x 800 pixels resolution….

Entry-level Sony Xperia Tipo to hit O2 and Orange UK in August, pricing not yet revealed

by 1 year ago

All eyes might be fixed on Sony’s upcoming high-end Hayabusa and Mint smartphones, but the company is also planning to strengthen its entry-level line-up, too. The Xperia Tipo, which we saw not long ago getting the FCC’s approval, will be hitting the UK in just a few weeks. That’s a fact, and not some sort of rumor, even though Sony has yet to release a statement on the matter. We don’t need any statement, however, because O2 and Orange, two of the most important British mobile operators, are already listing the phone on their websites as “coming soon”. Neither O2,…

Dead Space for Android updated with Nexus 7 support

by 1 year ago

If you’re into mobile third-person shooters and you also dig shooting up zombies and/or aliens, you can’t find a better option on the market than Dead Space. Made available for Android just about a year ago, EA’s highly acclaimed game has managed to gain huge popularity almost overnight, despite its steep price point. The game’s developing studio has just updated Dead Space. The new version’s changelog is extremely short, but I’m sure that the added support will bring in a whole new horde of fans. That’s right, the new Dead Space doesn’t come with technical tweaks, graphical improvements or bug…

Samsung Galaxy Beam now selling in the UK, US release still unannounced

by 1 year ago

Although it was supposed to start selling in the UK more than three weeks ago, the Samsung Galaxy Beam phone/pico projector is only now up for grabs for the wide public. We don’t know exactly what was the problem with Expansys’ stocks at the beginning of the month, but what we do know is that at least 15 unlucky tech users who didn’t manage to get a Beam then can do so now. That’s how much units Expansys UK is claiming to have in its stocks, and it might be enough for a day or two. After that, there’s no…
