Today at Mobile World Congress, ASUS took the stage to show off its future wares. While you never can tell what ASUS is going to show up with, we at least knew a new Padfone model would make an appearance. As expected, ASUS announced the all new Padfone Infinity.
Traditionally, Google and their Nexus products don’t see much in the way of official accessories (and if they do, it’s usually 6+ months down the road). Another prime example of the lackluster accessory support comes at the unavailability of official docks for both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. While we can’t speculate on the Nexus 10, we’ve known for a month or so that the Nexus 7 dock is right around the corner.
If you were watching NVIDIA’s live CES 2013 webcast event last night, then you should remember the sneak peek of Dead Trigger 2 teased during Project Shield gameplay. Dead Trigger has remained an undead staple among Android gamers and the sequel to this hit zombie shoot ‘em up now has an official press release.
The moment I’ve been waiting for: the unveiling of the ASUS Qube. This once dongle-like instrument has taken on an entirely new form while becoming ASUS’s first Google TV set top box.
VIZIO announced plans to bring to the market two new Android tablets: one 7-inch Tegra 3 tablet and one 10-inch Tegra 4. The 7-inch Tegra 3 model is similar to the ASUS Nexus 7, with features including a 7-inch 1280×800 IPS display, 16GB storage, 1.2MP front-facing camera, Android 4.2 and Micro USB. While I think it’s a bit late in the game for this particular 7-inch model, VIZIO looks to have a winner on its hands with their 10-inch model.
Of all the announcements made by NVIDIA at CES 2013, the Tegra 4 was probably the least surprising. We knew it was coming, I mean, NVIDIA wasn’t going to use the Tegra 3 forever. As to be expected, the next iteration is both faster and more powerful without requiring more juice (would be odd if is wasn’t… right?)
NVIDIA dropped quite a surprise on the Android community just a few minutes ago. Code named Project
Thor Shield, NVIDIA has designed their very own gaming/Android device. This hybrid mobile device looks like a gaming controller on steroids and is surprisingly running pure Android. That’s right, PURE Android!
