NVIDIA is one of the most well-known, respected and established names in the industry of graphics processing manufacturing. While this may be true, the US-based company has struggled to gain profitability due to a variety of environmental and economic events of the past few years.
After being named Forbes’ “Company of the Year’’ in 2007, Jen-Hsun Huang’s electronics giant entered into a slippery slope of economic decline, constantly reporting quarterly losses and dips in revenue. While most companies would have cut costs and considered thinking of reducing production, NVIDIA did exactly the opposite.
While the GeForce GPU product line has been constantly [...]
One of the most important hurdles that tablet PCs have had to overcome during the past couple of years, in order to become popular, has been the extravagant pricing. In a ultra competitive technology world, where the sky is no longer the limit, everybody is looking for the best, the most powerful, but also the cheapest gadget, Android manufacturers have faced problems with pricing their devices.
While, a year back, you couldn’t even hope to pay less than $400 for a decent Android-based tablet, Amazon has shocked everybody by launching the $200 Kindle Fire, changing in the process, the world’s perception on what an Android tablet should be (and [...]
According to the Basemark ES 2.0 Taiji GPU benchmark, the most powerful mobile device in the world (when it comes to the number of megapixels rendered per second) is an unknown Pantech device, codenamed QCT MSM8960 EF46 L. The impressive results obtained by this device, combined with the glaring absence of a GPU model number, have lead many to believe that we are actually looking at the first benchmark results of Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Presumably, the S4 Pro chip swaps the Adreno 225 GPU found in the “standard” S4 for a new and faster Adreno 320 chip.
Bearing a remarkable similarity (in terms of codename) to the QCT MSM8960 [...]
Over the last months, there’s been no shortage of announcements concerning upcoming Android 4.0 tablets, to a degree that it became a little hard to find differences between the various devices touted by manufacturers. So here we are, bringing you yet another Ice Cream Sandwich loaded tablet, this time from Fujitsu. So, lets see what the Fujitsu Stylistic M532 Android 4.0 tablet can bring to the table?
At first glance, Fujitsu’s Stylistic M532, while impressive to look at, offers no immediate indication of its superiority over the slew of other similar tablets announced or available on the market. The M532 features a “standard” 1280×800 [...]
Apple has made an art form of selling their iDevices based on the user experience premise, rather than the numbers on the spec sheet – well, more often than not, anyway. When Cupertino does have the upper hand, it’s not shy to make often outrageous claims. This is what happened at the iPad launch event, when Apple’s Phil Chiller told spectators that the new iPad’s A5X SoC offers four times the graphics power of Nvidia Tegra 3. As the comment was met with a passive-aggressive retort from Nvidia, the whole tech world awaited impatiently to see how the two tablets perform in benchmarks.
Within days of the slate’s availability, Laptop Mag pitted the new [...]
The HTC One X is likely to be the first quad-core smartphone in the world to reach the hands of consumers. As such, it is probably the most hyped smartphone out there at this point, with both Android-related (us included), as well as general tech sites eagerly reporting every small bit of available information about HTC’s next flagship superphone. Add to the fact that HTC is equipping all smartphones in the One series with a new and improved camera technology, as well as the fact that the One X will launch with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, makes it sense enough that people are very excited to get their hands on it.
Unfortunately for HTC’s fans from [...]
Over the last decade, Japanese smartphone makers have effectively ignored the rest of the world, preferring to focus on their internal market. As a result, Panasonic, NEC, Sharp, and the other big Japanese smartphone makers are almost unknown to the Western public. But things are changing on the shores of the Far East.
Sony, the only manufacturer that kept the flag up for Japan, has recently divorced from its unhappy marriage with Ericsson and has promised to focus more on U.S. and Europe. Panasonic just announced the Eluga, a slimline 4.3-inch beast running Android that will be introduced next week, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. And now it seems that Fujitsu [...]

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang spoke of great things to come for the company at CES 2012 while cross-referencing to a Toyota Corolla as the best-selling vehicle of all time. He shared that just because it is a highly in demand car, not everyone wants or needs one. Huang referenced this with Android tablets because there are now a multitude of sizes, shapes, and specs available. After just four years, Android is close to dominating the world of smartphones and tablets.The Ice Cream Sandwich
Apart from talking about Android per se, NVIDIA also discussed upcoming products, trends and technologies. One of the highly talked about and anticipated products was Google’s [...]
With the upcoming release of the Asus Transformer Prime, it is no longer a surprise why many are considering getting rid of their old laptops. Even though it is still considered as a tablet, you may want to consider using it instead of a bulky laptop. Here are 5 reasons why this could be your next big investment!Portability
One thing you’ll really enjoy about the Transformer Prime is that it is portable, weighing only 1.29 pounds and measuring 10.35 x 7.12 x 0.33. Even though it is smaller than the smallest laptop (not netbook), it has a 10-inch, 1280×800 display that can help you get ‘real’ work done.Longevity
