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.

So it’s no wonder that each edition of COMPUTEX brings product launches, precious insight into technology developments, [...]
In the tech world, product announcements and releases are met with a lot of fanfare. For most, it’s just a general sense of relief to be able to step away from the whirlwind of speculation and to finally get definitive answers on what to expect. It’s been almost a month since the unveiling of the Galaxy S3 and some crazy rumors still flash before my eyes (2GB RAM confirmed! 12MP camera a must!). But the tech world waits for no one, and we were are now hearing rumblings of Google planning to release five Nexus devices, including at least one Nexus tablet.
