When we think about Android tablets, we usually think of products from China or Asia. This is a reasonable assumption since a lot of today’s production facilities for electronic products are based there. However, tablet are actually pretty simple devices to make and all you need to make them is a little bit of know-how. This is why we see quite a few other places trying their hand at making tablets. We’ve heard from Africa and India – and it seems Eastern Europe is soon to follow. A Romanian tech star-up named Evolio has announced the upcoming release of their own tablet to the world market.
The Neura, as the guys in Evolio have come to call their [...]
India’s one of the upcoming tech giants. The subcontinent is home to millions and, like China, has a growing middle-class that seeks the technological revolution of the first-world. Of course, since products made abroad are usually expensive, local manufacturers are trying their best to bridge the gap. EAFT has just produced an excellent little tablet – the Magictile Marathon tablet.
For anyone looking for a modern tablet, the Magictile is a good find. It packs the regulation nVidia Tegra 2 chip and 10-inch touchscreen. These put it squarely in the higher-end of the tablet wars – right up there with Motorola’s XOOM and Samsung’s Galaxy [...]
Looking for a cheap Android tablet? There’s a lot to choose from but the problem is choosing the right one. Well, Camangi is not going to make things any easier. They’ve just announce that they will be releasing their Mangrove 7 Android Tablet in Japan this August.
The biggest problem for Camangi will be trying to distinguish itself from the veritable sea of Android tablets out there. This is must be why they opted for a limited release in Japan. The country doesn’t seem to be in the same grip of tablet mania as the Chinese or American markets are. Still, the Mangrove 7 will still be facing some stiff competition from Toshiba and Fujitsu’s [...]
A few years ago, most people were reasonably happy to check simple versions of sites, receive their email on the go, and be able to stay connected at all times. My, how things have changed since then. 2011 is undoubtedly the year of the Superphone – and the rapid developments occurring in mobile technology aren’t going to stop, nor are they going to slow down or go away. Today, people are demanding a lot from their mobile devices, and they have every reason to. It’s hard to say what the average user is looking for, but I would say that most users want great battery life, an extremely responsive touchscreen, good picture and video taking [...]
GSM Israel have produced a wonderful hands-on video revealing the upcoming LG Star. As you may expect, the 7 minute long video is not in English, but provides a great overview of the phone’s appearance and a sneak peak into its feature set. The interface certainly bares similarities to Samsung’s Touchwiz UI, and aspects of HTCs interface too. The device itself is larger than the iPhone and more comparable to the Samsung Galaxy S. The screen looks very sharp, even next to that Retina Display. It offers HDMI out and of course packs the dual-core Tegra 2 chip which is supposed to offer an improvement in power consumption, lowering the overall usage by [...]
There are a couple of really cool things about the Notion Ink Adam. First, it offers Nvidia’s Tegra-2 chip for processing under the hood. Secondly, it touts a 10.1-inch Pixel Qi transflective screen. What does this mean? This device can provide both an electrophoretic reflective mode just like E-Ink, but change to offer a backlit LCD mode too. The downside is that the backlit mode doesn’t seem to be as vibrant as normal LCDs. But hey, normal LCDs don’t have the option for super low battery consumption E-Ink options too. Thirdly, and finally, rumor has it that Notion Ink’s Adam will ship with Android 2.2 out of the box. [...]
Interpad are set to release a 10” capacitive multi-touch tablet before the year is out. One of the most appealing aspects of this device is the 1Ghz Nvidia Tegra 2 T20 Dual ARM Cortex-A9 processor chip along with the 1GB of DDR2 RAM that float’s around inside. In fact, why stop there? There is very little about this device which seems cheap. The on-board storage is 16GB along with room for another 32GB MicroSD. The whole thing is super-slim and measures up at around 253 mm x 164 mm x 12.5 mm weighing only 660g. In terms of physical connections there are HDMI x 1, Mini-USB x 1, Earphone x 1 along with [...]
Foxconn have manufactured a Tegra 2-powered Android prototype tablet. Engadget have produced a hands-on video which highlights the gaming prowess of this particular device. According to the source, the NVIDIA representatives were not “very keen on sharing info about the device”. However, it has been reported that the tablet has a healthy 1GB of RAM inside. This will help support the 1GHz ARM Cortex 9 CPU. Along with that we also have a front-facing camera, and the WSVGA screen that measures 8.9-inches. This screen also produces a wider aspect ratio when compared to the likes of the iPad. I should note that the video itself does not reveal Android in anyway.
