The NVIDIA SHIELD Holiday bundle has a bundle within the bundle

Posted by wicked December - 19 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Yep, you heard us right. It’s a meme waiting to happen, but we’ll set that aside for a moment. What’s important is that you can now get the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, the NVIDIA wireless game controller, and a bundle of games all for USD$399.

First you get a great gaming tablet, because that’s what the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet is – we’ve said it before, we’ll say it again, this is probably the best gaming tablet you can get out in the market today. Granted that you’ll have to pay premium for it, but that’s what it costs to have the best specs. It’s primed with the Tegra K1 processor, still one of the baddest mobile procs out there today.


Then you get the NVIDIA wireless mobile controller for all your gaming needs. And then NVIDIA put a bundle within the bundle – buyers of this holiday treat will get three classic Valve games: Portal, Half-Life 2, and Half-Life 2: Episode One, which we mentioned was optimized specifically for the SHIELD Tablet.

So, are you planning to splurge on something nice for yourself this holiday season? NVIDIA’s Holiday Bundle makes it difficult for it not to be part of your options for gaming.

Leak shows an insanely powerful Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra

Posted by wicked December - 19 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Of course, we can say right off the bat that as with all leaks, it will be difficult to verify if this is indeed true – that is the nature of all leaks. But the purported specs of the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra has just leaked and it’s showing us an insanely robust tablet, something that would blow away current competition. But is it in the “too good to be true” category?

Chinese site PadNews has the screen of the new Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra at 12.9 inches. For comparison, that’s even larger than the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and Samsung’s biggest Galaxy Pro model. The leak says that it will be a 3840×2400 Triluminos screen, that’s already 4K resolution, but not just. It will have a pixel count higher than the Retina screen of the newest MacBook Pro, and promptly beats most of the 4K laptop screens out there.


But if you think that the size of the rumored tablet is all there is, you’re in for a ride. It will be powered by an octa-core, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, along with a whopping 6GB of RAM. It’s purportedly sporting 64GB of internal storage, an HDMI-out port, support for PS4 Remote Play (one would hope that with specs like this, it would be) and Sony’s Hi-Res Audio file format.

With specs like that, you’d hope it will have a kickass battery – and at least the list proves it could have it, a 12,100mAh battery never before seen on devices of this class. So is it true? Again, your guess is as good as ours. Remember that Sony has an event planned in January at the CES 2015 in Las Vegas, where the Xperia Z4 line is rumored to be launched. Our advice, don’t get your hopes up too much, ok?

WiFi-only tablet? The FiiV iPad case is on the case

Posted by Tom December - 18 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

The lower cost of a WiFI-only tablet is always appealing but when we’re out in the world sometimes it would be handy to have a connection (though that’s when tethering comes into its own on a good data plan).

Here’s the FiiV iPad case, which comes with its own SIM card slot to call upon when you need some data.

The FiiV SIM creates a hotspot with which the tablet can then connect to, and the bonus of this is the SIM can be swapped around to take advantage of whichever carrier offers the best pay-as-you-go packages at the time.

There’s also a battery pack in the case, so it’ll be handy for extra juice too. It contains a Qualcomm MDM9225 chipset which can support up to 10 devices on the WiFi network.

It’s currently up for funding on indiegogo – the first 100 people get it for $99.

The Blu Studio 7.0 is a budget-friendly 7-inch smartphone

Posted by wicked December - 18 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Yeah, you can balk at the size all you want – you know we all did. There’s just something about a smartphone when it breaks the 6-inch barrier that makes it go from useful to weird – not quite a tablet, too big for a phone. But Florida-based outfit Blu wants to take that risk in putting out the Blu Studio 7.0, a huge 7-inch smartphone for the budget conscious.

The Blu Studio 7.0 is straight up huge – and it does try to leverage on the size by saying that there is more space to do everything from email, social media, to movies and videos. But it is probably the spec list that would deter me from buying one if ever. Under the hood there’s a 1.3Ghz dual core processor backstopped by a Mali 400 graphics chip and 1GB of RAM. This line alone tells you that there will be lag times during usage and performance, although probably not heavy lag. The 7-inch display doesn’t break the HD 720 barrier at 1024×600 (169ppi).


Then there’s the rest of the specs, a 5MP/2MP camera combo, 8GB of storage, 3G connectivity and running on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat. You can see that the huge phone is targeted plainly at the lower market niches. But just because it has a big screen doesn’t mean it will sell. Or will it?


You remember the Samsung Galaxy W, right? Of course you don’t. Well, it was Samsung’s attempt at the same gigantic form factor, with slightly better specs. But it ended up not doing well in the market – because people probably get weirded-out by the huge size. Be that as it may, the Blu Studio 7.0 is now available through Amazon for USD$149.99 unlocked.


China Mobile releases its own Android tablet – the P711 LTE

Posted by Tom December - 17 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Carrier China Mobile has released its own branded tablet, the P711 LTE Android tablet.

It has a 7-inch IPS LCD display with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and runs on a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz.

There’s 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage and it runs on a 4100 mAh battery.

It supports TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA/GSM connectivity, as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi.

The rear camera is 5MP, the front-facer’s 0.3MP and it comes in black or silver options.

Given how many tablets there are out there with similar spec, at $249 this isn’t a particularily exciting tablet, but maybe there are some contract perks for adopting the carrier’s own hardware.
