by: Bams SadewoJune 9, 2012

Having trouble choosing between 2012’s Phone of the Year candidate Samsung Galaxy S3 and the shape-shifting Asus Padfone?

Check out the quick comparison video below to see how the two smartphones stack up against each other. To make things even more interesting, we’ve also thrown last year’s best-selling Android phone, the Samsung Galaxy S2 into the mix, so make that a three-way visual comparison.

The red hot Samsung Galaxy S3 is the more attractive offering compared to the two. But for those who like the idea of a device within a device (within a device), the Asus Padfone should make for one worthy purchase. The complete package of the Padfone will cost you [...]

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 9, 2012

All week, Android Authority was live on-the-ground at Computex 2012 in Taipei, represented by our own editor-in-chief, Darcy LaCouvee. He’s got hands-on time with some amazing devices!

Last week, when ASUS teased the “next transformations” that would be showcased at Computex 2012, very few people expected what was finally revealed by ASUS, the Transformer AiO. The dual OS device featuring Android 4.0 and Windows 8 works as an all-in-one PC as well a tablet. Very impressively, it allows a simple transition between the two – switching between OSs is as simple pushing a button.

Here’s a video of Darcy’s hands-on with the ASUS [...]

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 9, 2012

All week, Android Authority was live on-the-ground at Computex 2012 in Taipei, represented by our own editor-in-chief, Darcy Lacouvee. He’s got hands-on time with some amazing devices!

ASUS has slowly been cornering the Android tablet market with some amazing options such as the Transformer Prime and the Transformer Pad TF300. But ASUS has definitely saved the best for last, with the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T. First seen at CES 2012 back in January, the device has since undergone a name-change, with information on the device variants including a WiFi-only version, an HSPA+ version, and an LTE version.

Exclusive: ASUS representative confirms the Google tablet, Padfone and Pad Infinity LTE coming to AT&T

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 9, 2012

We’ve been hearing for a long while now about the fabled Google tablet, presumably called the Nexus 7.

The 7-inch slate will be powered by Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 chip and will be manufactured by ASUS. Perhaps the most important tidbit we’ve learned so far about the Google tablet is its pricing, which will supposedly be in the $150-$250 range. Now that we’ve seen Nvidia’s Kai platform and Acer’s Iconia Tab 110, the $200 price tag seems increasingly probable.

The general consensus is that Google will launch the Nexus tablet at the Google I/O conference taking place in San Francisco at the end of June. But up until now, all we’ve got was speculations and [...]

Fancy a MacBook Air clone, running ICS, and costing $200? Read on!

by: LucianJune 8, 2012

At Computex, there was one little surprise from a company called Thread Technology demoing what looks like a Macbook Air clone, but one that will cost only $200 at retail, so around 5x less than the low-end version of an actual Macbook Air. Moreover, if you buy 500 or more units, you can get it for $150 per unit, which I imagine is an option only for companies buying them in bulk.

The Android Book, aka THD N2-A, is an Android 4.0 notebook that comes with a 1.2 Ghz Cortex A8  processor and has a 13.3″ display with a 1366×768 resolution. It’s not a touchscreen, as it’s only intended to be used as a laptop. That also means that you can use the [...]

by: Bams SadewoJune 7, 2012

You’d probably be hard-pressed to name any Android phones from Gigabyte, but the Taiwanese manufacturer has been actually trying to grab a bite of the Android smartphone market for quite some time and has its eyes set on becoming a bigger player in the future.

Gigabyte has just introduced two new Android phones at Computex 2012 in Taiwan: the entry-level GSmart G1342 and the rather high-end GSmart G1362.

The GSmart G1342 has a 3.5-inch display of 320 x 480 resolution. At the heart of the phone is a single-core Qualcomm 7225A processor, while the rest of the specs include a 1GB internal storage, 512MB RAM, 5MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash.
