InfoSonics verykool T742 KolorPad tablet unveiled (from AndroidCommunity)

February 4, 2014 | By |

InfoSonics has unveiled their latest budget priced Android tablet, the verykool T742 KolorPad. The tablet is of the 7-inch variety and in this case, it happens to be powered by a dual-core 1.3GHz processor and running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. InfoSonics has this one priced at $149, and even managed to include a few extras and cellular connectivity.

 

The verykool T742 KolorPad ships with the expected, a USB cable for charging. In addition, those looking towards this tablet will find a stereo headset, data cable, travel adapter and case included in the box. As for that cellular connectivity, that means 3G HSDPA (850/1900) and 2G GSM (850/900/1800/1900).

Other specs include a 2500 mAh battery, microSD card slot (with support for cards up to 32GB), a VGA quality front-facing camera and 3 megapixel rear-facing camera. The basics such as GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm headphone jack and USB port will also be found. On the topic of Bluetooth, the tablet does support the HID profile which means you can connect a keyboard, game controller, and more.

There was a fairly detailed set of specs for the tablet, however a few key pieces were missing. InfoSonics didn’t specify the display resolution, and instead simply referred to it as a 7-inch capacitive LCD. There also wasn’t anything in terms of the internal storage. All that having been said, if you happen to be looking for a lower-priced tablet with cellular connectivity, the T742 KolorPad may be one to consider.

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO series confirmed to launch February 13 (from AndroidCommunity)

February 4, 2014 | By |

In what some fans might call an early Valentines gift,Samsung has officially announced the upcoming availability of its brand new line of “pro tablets” starting February 13. This announcement comes rather quickly after an earlier leak disclosed that very same date.

 

The highlights of this new generation of Samsung tablets are the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, two of the largest consumer Android tablets in the market. Or rather prosumer, a new breed of users that Samsung is envisioning to take the tablet market by storm. People from this breed are characterized by the desire to employ tablets not just for casual use or content consumption but also for creating content and more serious work. As such, these tablets are endowed by a more than spacious 12.2-inch screens with a pixel resolution of 2560×1600. The 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 3 GB of RAM also touts serious business.

On the software side, the tablets also boast of features andapps that promote productive, like a four-window Multi Window. The 12.2-inch screen also has enough room for a modified on-screen keyboard that now sports additional keys that make it resemble a conventional keyboard. There has been speculation that Samsung’s recent patent cross-licensing deal with Google would, among other things, lead to the removal of the new Magazine UX. But given how close the tablets are to launch, that seems quite unlikely now.

Pre-orders for the tablets will start on February 4 midnight ET and will be available from Samsung.com, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, and more. The Galaxy NotePRO 32 GB will sell for $749.99 while the 64 GB has a $849.99 price tag. The Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 sells for $499.99 and the TabPRO 8.9 for $399.99. These three will be available on February 13. The Galaxy TabPRO 12.2, which is priced at $649.99, won’t be available until March. A 4G LTE variant of the Galaxy NotePRO will be available from Verizon sometime later this quarter.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the best-selling game of 2013 (from Engadget)

February 4, 2014 | By |

Between a $1 billion debut and rave reviews, it’s probably not a huge shock to you that Grand Theft Auto 5 was the best-selling game of 2013. Regardless, Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive confirmed suspicions today in the company’s financial earnings release. “Grand Theft Auto V finished as the best-selling video game of 2013,” the release states, attributing that claim to NPD. “To date, Grand Theft Auto V has sold-in more than 32.5 million units.”

Even with the game’s mass popularity and somewhat staid approach to world-building, we can’t help but commend Rockstar Games on the achievement — we loved our time in GTA5‘s single-player and (occasionally troubled) online worlds. Now all we can do is hope for an even prettier version on these new game consoles (or PC, for that matter) in 2014, though we don’t expect a repeat performance in the “best-selling game” category. Let’s not get too crazy.

Google Now comes to the desktop in Chrome and Chrome OS betas (from Engadget)

February 3, 2014 | By |

Rumblings of Google Now on the desktop first started surfacing back in December of 2012, but it wasn’t until a couple of weeks ago that it actually broke cover. If you were a user of the Canary build of the Chrome browser you could enable the card alerts by ticking an option buried deep within the recesses of chrome://flags. This week though, Google will bring the desktop version of its virtual assistant to the betas of Chrome on Windows and OS X, as well as Chrome OS. You wont need to dig through any advanced options, you’ll just need to sign in with the same account you use on your handset — so long as you have Now enabled on your phone. Unfortunately, it sounds like Linux users are left out in the cold for now. Presumably that has something to do with how Now ties into existing notification systems on those other platforms (we’ve asked Google to clarify). With Now hitting the beta channel, enabled by default, it’s only a matter of time before Mountain View brings the feature to the masses. But if you’re anything like us, you’re already using the beta build and are maniacally hitting the update button hoping to be among the first customers it rolls out to.
