archos-97-carbon

We were wondering how fast the Nexus 7 would push the Android manufacturers to make a competing product, and Archos is now showing us that it didn’t take that long. They are announcing... a 9.7″ Android 4.0 tablet called the Archos 97 Carbon, with a 4:3 aspect ratio (like the iPad) that costs only $250. For that price you get a 1 Ghz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, microS...

Android Director of Product Management Hugo Barra appeared for the first time on stage at the Honeycomb event last year. Back then, I remember thinking he didn’t do a very good job presenting... Honeycomb, but I think it was also the whole environment that didn’t make sense and put him in a bad light. It looked a lot less professional than any Google I/O event, and it seemed like they just quic...

Update- We have just launched the best Android tablets of 2013 series.

The Google Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets of the year and definitely a tough... adversary for this year’s Kindle Fire versions. At the same time, the device is not an iPad-killer, it’s not even intended to be one, and, moreover, it may do a lot more harm within the Android tablet...

The Google Nexus 7 is available for pre-order in various markets already, but the device is not available to consumers yet in those countries. The only Nexus 7 units... that can be used in the wild right now are the white versions that were handed free of charge to all Google I/O attendees last week.

galaxy-nexus-7-teardown-1

The folks over at iFixit managed to get a hold of a Google Nexus 7 five days after being officially unveiled at Google I/O – in fact they did score a white version,... the kind that was handed down to all attendees of the developer conference – and they did what they do best, tear it to pieces.

We have already covered the Nexus 7 extensively since the first Goo...

Nexus 7 front

The recently announced Google Nexus 7 Jelly Bean tablet is available from pre-order directly from Google Play in certain markets and it’s supposed to start shipping... at some point this month. But the device will not be a Google Play exclusive, as Google plans to partner up with various third party electronics retailers to sell the device.

After launching its first tablet ever at this year’s edition Google I/O, a device that also happens to be the first one to run Google’s latest Android version,... the company decided to release the full OS image for the Nexus 7 and make it available to anyone interested in it.

The image will let Google Nexus 7 owners restore the tablet back to the origina...

nexus7

Just as you’re about to pre-order that brand spankin’ new Nexus 7, you have to make the decision. Are you going to get the 8GB version for $199 or upgrade... to 16GB for $249?

Coming from a guy that doesn’t carry a whole hard-drive of music around, the choice was easy. I went straight for the 8GB model and sprung for that sweet dark grey cover. Bu...

Nexus-7-Root

Well, that didn’t take long, rooting the Google Nexus 7, a tablet that’s just two days old. Those of you that already own the device – that pretty much... means Google I/O attendees and anyone else the grabbed one from them via eBay and other channels – and feel courageous enough, can now experience the Google Nexus 7 root on your own.
