LG Rolly roll-up Bluetooth keyboard is a neat, easily stored and carried option

Posted by Tom August - 31 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Bluetooth keyboards are super helpful for anyone who needs to tap out more than a couple of emails on a tablet but they’re usually pretty big and bulk up the tablet.

The LG Rolly is a smart solution that packs away into a slim tube.

The roll-out keyboard takes one AAA battery that give three months of use and it’s made from a flexible material rather than hard plastic.

To make a complete unit, it even has fold-out arms that act as a tablet cradle, keeping everything neat.

Price and release date are TBA but if the price is right this’ll be a great little purchase.

Archos Diamond Tab now official, affordable 4G tablet

Posted by wicked August - 28 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

After announcing the Diamond S smartphone, Archos puts out another device with the same gemstone name – the Archos Diamond Tab. We don’t know what’s up with the “diamond” names, but we do know Archos, purveyor of affordable mid-range and entry-level devices for all. Let’s take a look at what this new Archos Diamond Tab offers.

First up, you get a 7.9-inch QXGA (2048×1536) IPS LCD display – that’s more pixels than a 2K screen, albeit on a 4:3 aspect ratio. That will be powered by an 64-bit capable Mediatek MT8752 octa-core processor, capable of 1.7GHz per core, supported ably by 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.


Judging from this configuration – and including 4G LTE connectivity – Archos seems to be prioritizing the performance of the device. Most people will probably find that this tablet will do most of their everyday tasks comfortably and without too much lag. Where Archos now balances the device specs for cost is in the camera department, where you get a measly 5MP/2MP camera combo – clearly not for the picture savvy.


The tablet will run Android 5.1 Lollipop, which is a relief. The device will be in the Archos display at IFA 2015 in Berlin, just in case you’re in that neighborhood. The pricing is set at USD$276.00 – clearly at the top end of pricing for most Archos devices, but still quite affordable for its market.

Samsung to reportedly launch an 18.4-inch Android tablet

Posted by wicked August - 25 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Have you ever wondered if you actually need an 18-inch tablet in your life? Well if you never actually thought you needed a screen that large, unless you were sitting in front of a desktop or TV screen, then Samsung will reportedly try to change your mind. Reports are saying they are about to launch an 18.4-inch Android tablet in the market soon, on top of all the new tablets that they’ve already released this year.

Reports are saying that the SM-T670, codenamed “Tahoe”, is actually going to be Samsung’s biggest tablet offering so far. Aside from then 18.4” display, it will also have a TFT LCD Screen and a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It will run on an octa-core 64-bit 1.6GHz Exynos 7580 processor and will have a 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, but with a microSD slot that can expand it to 128GB.

Since it’s a pretty large device, you won’t expect people to take pictures with it so the 8MP main camera and 2.1 MP front-facing camera should be enough. Although, if you’ll be doing video conferencing on it, then the resolution might not be that great. The battery will be at 5,700 mAh and the dimension of the tablet is reportedly at 451.8 mm wide, 275.8 mm tall, and 11.9 mm thick.

All of these are of course unconfirmed, so there isn’t a rumored name yet or even a timetable as to the expected release. Another thing that the Korean OEM is reportedly working on is a Windows 10-based tablet, with a 12-inch display, a 4GB RAM, and an S-Pen. That probably is of more interest to some people rather than a giant Android tablet.

LG’s 10-inch G Pad II has 7400 mAh battery, reduced blue light

Posted by wicked August - 24 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

IFA 2015 in Berlin is still a few days away, but already the OEMs are announcing their big guns to get the attention of consumers looking for their next big buy. LG today announced that they will be showing off the newest and most advanced (so far) model in their G Pad series. The LG G Pad II 10.1, will (obviously) sport a 10-inch screen, a long-lasting battery (the largest in this market segment), and more features that they claim will make your multi-media experience even more enjoyable.

The new LG tablet will supposedly offer you the “perfect balance of performance and price” if you are now in the market for a new tablet. It will run on a 2.26GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor and will have 2GB of RAM, which has been the standard for a lot of devices in this segment. It has 16GB of internal memory and will already come with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. It will sport a WUXGA (1920 x 1200) display with a “slim and seek design” and boasting of having the slimmest bezel in the 10-inch category.

One good news for heavy users is that it has a 7,400 mAh battery, which is again, the largest in their class. And if you use your tablet to read a ton of ebooks, then you’ll be happy to know that this one has a reduced blue light in its display blacklight, which is apparently responsible for our eye fatigue and blurry vision issues. You also have the Dual Window feature so you can multi-task and then QuickMemo+ to let you write down, save and share notes without leaving the app you’re currently in.

The pricing and availability of the LG G Pad II 10.1 will be announced at the launch at the IFA. What we do know is that the tablet will also have Microsoft Office pre-loaded, together with 100GB One Drive storage, free for the next two years.


Acer Predator gaming tablet rumored to be in mass production

Posted by wicked August - 24 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

It’s been a difficult season for tablets these past two years. The growing popularity of large screen smartphones and phablets are forcing people to reconsider their tablet purchase. The influx of exciting technology into smartphones – like fingerprint security, large internal storage, faster processors – are marking tablet devices as “luxury purchases” rather than daily driver needs. But it seems that at least one brand – Taiwan-based manufacturers Acer – are confident enough to release a new gaming tablet into the market, the rumored Acer Predator 8.

Reports are now saying that the tablet has gone into mass production, ahead of its anticipated launch at IFA 2015 in Berlin. The name of the tablet is a nod to Acer’s gaming desktop line, and the tablet is flamboyantly designed to make sure people know it’s a gaming tablet. Inside, the tablet will reportedly sport Intel’s newest Atom processor, the X7-Z8700, which features 64-bit architecture, and quad-core design clocked at 1.6GHz, with a boost feature that cranks it up to 2.4GHz per core.


Insiders say that Acer really isn’t hoping that the Predator tablet will sell like hotcakes, although that would be a complete bonus to them. The Predator 8 tablet is meant to reinforce the company’s commitment in breaking into the gaming niche market. With a tablet that looks like this, they might just do that.


Sources also say that the tablet should be available in the market realistically by Q4 of 2015, just in time to hit the holiday gadget shopping rush. No information has yet surfaced on the pricing of the device.
