The Lite variation of the Archos 101 Xenon tablet has been announced.

The Archos 101 Xenon Lite does away with the original model’s aluminum shell and replaces it with a lightweight polycarbonate body to earn the model its name.

The Xenon Lite runs on a MediaTek MT8382 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, which is a slight improvement on the former model’s 1.2GHz MT8389 chip.

It has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 pixel IPS display and it packs in a 4000mAh battery – one to watch when using the dualSIM 3G connectivity option – especially as the original Xenon 101 packed a 6,000mAh unit.

The cameras aren’t too exciting – the rear cam’s 2MP and the front-facer is just 0.3MP, but with the portability (it weighs 550g) and 3G, this could work fine as an on the go runaround tablet.

It’s currently out in Italy for 159 euros (US$175).

The Ryan Seacrest co-founded company Typo has put out a new iPad keyboard / cover combo that has a neat, sleek design and the feel of a good laptop keyboard.

Top build quality comes at a price, however. $189 to be exact. That puts this product in the upper-end of the accessories scale but should be the only one you need until iPads change shape again.

Models are available to fit the iPad Air and iPad Air 2 and connect via magnets and sport a soft plastic wrist rest which will keep typing comfortable and make sure the screen’s not got too much hard plastic against it.


The keyboard pairs via Bluetooth and is rechargeable via USB.

For true laptop emulation, a fold-down kickstand at the back/bottom of the case keeps the screen upright.

Meet the dedicated Google TouchBot lag-checker

Posted by Tom July - 1 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

While the technology we carry in our pockets is just amazing – it’s easy to take it for granted and fly into a rage when touchscreen commands get a bit laggy for a few milliseconds.

Rather than taking a step back and trying to get some perspective, we can rest assured that somewhere in the world Google has a robot tapping and swiping screens in a never-ending effort to eliminate this first world problem.

The Chrome TouchBot is an OptoFidelity-made robot that is dedicated to gauging latency on Android and Chrome OS touchscreen devices.

Its findings are recorded and hardware and software are adjusted accordingly.

Jide Remix Mini Android PC coming to Kickstarter this July

Posted by wicked June - 30 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

The year started with Jide unveiling the Remix Ultra Tablet. The tech startup brought the project to Kickstarter and fortunately, the fund goal was raised and the tablet actually shipped to backers last May. Tablet was listed in two variants on the crowdfunding website: a $349 16GB model and the $449 64GB version. This time, Jide is giving us a glimpse of the new Remix Mini, a small Chromebox-like device that runs Remix OS, the same platform running on the Ultra Tablet.

The Remix Mini has yet to be listed on Kickstarter but Jide started showing off the Android-powered mini personal computer. It’s a small PC system that can be used as a complete desktop system after you attach a monitor, mouse, and keyboard. The Remix Mini is said to be powered by Android Lollipop kernel/Remix OS, a 1.5GHz Quad-Core CPU, and a H.265 FHD Hardware decoder GPU. Other specs include an 8GB built-in storage, 1GB RAM, WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, and HDMI 1.4. As for the dimensions, the Remix Mini is packed inside a 4.9-in x 3.5-in x 1-in form.

Not much details have been shared but Jide is requesting for backers when the campaign starts on Kickstarter this July. Your $20 donation will already give you one unit of the Jide Remix Mini.

This small device is said to be a starter system for the Remix OS–a custom Android that allows multitasking multi-windows, physical keyboard optimization, keyboard shortcuts, and more. And when it’s ready for the market, Jide Technology said retail price would not go over $30.



This is a crowdfunded project, and as such may not deliver what its creators initially promise. Most crowdfunding sites, like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, have policies about what happens to your money if the project fails to deliver on its goals, but choosing to back a project is inevitably a risk. Android Community’s reporting on crowdfunded projects should in no way be seen as an endorsement, unless specifically stated, and we recommend closely examining the terms and conditions to understand your individual rights as a backer before making a pledge.

ASUS unexpectedly reveals Zenpad C 7.0 in new video

Posted by wicked June - 26 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

Users have been expecting the ZenPad 8.0 and the ZenPad 8.0 S series tablets from Asus, since they have been heavily promoting it since it was announced earlier this month at Computex 2015. But the Taiwanese OEM has definitely surprised us with an under-the-radar offering that has now been unveiled via a video released earlier today. Asus introduced the ZenPad C 7.0, a device that might just be affordable enough for those looking to get a basic, functional tablet.

The video specifically mentions that this is a “stylish, 7-inch value tablet” and so if you’re looking for something a little more high-end, this isn’t for you. But if value for money (at least on paper, or rather, video) is your criteria for getting a new tablet, then the ZenPad C 7.0 might do the trick. It has a 7″ IPS display and is just 8.4mm thick and weights 265 grams. It will probably be pretty adequate if all you’re looking for in a tablet is to browse the web, watch YouTube and videos without expecting too much quality.


There will be two different models, with one having a 5MP main camera while the other one has a 2MP “rear snapper”. Both will have a front-facing camera with just 0.3MP, although the video says it has a selfie panorama feature and low-light support. Maybe it will make selfies look a little better despite the low quality of the camera.

One of the ZenPad C 7.0 models will also have dual-SIM support (dual standby actually) and will also support 3G for calling. No pricing or availability details yet, so let’s stand by and maybe ASUS will pull off another surprise.
