Lenovo S5000 tablet aims to undercut Nexus 7 with moderate specs

Lenovo S5000 tablet aims to undercut Nexus 7 with moderate specs

While the two devices may look rather similar, that's where the differences begin between the Lenovo S5000 and its already-on-the-market rival Nexus 7 (made by ASUS). You'll want to have a peek at SlashGear's Nexus 7 (2013) review to see the full run-down on what it means to work with this Google-sold tablet, but for now you'll have to have a peek at what Lenovo is bringing to the table later this year in the S5000. Here we've got a tablet with a 7-inch IPS LCD display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and brightness at 350 nits riding above Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Lenovo's own unique user interface features on top of it all - sound like a solution you'll be looking at this season?

New Nexus phone spotted in Android 4.4 KitKat unveiling

New Nexus phone spotted in Android 4.4 KitKat unveiling

In today's obligatory unveiling video of the new Android statue for Google's lawn full of statues of desserts, a new Google smartphone has appeared. This may very well be the next-generation Nexus device as it does indeed have the word Nexus written on it - though in a bit of a cut with what may be some black tape over the logo for secrecy. This device looks to be replicating the look (and perhaps the feel) of the 2013 edition of the Nexus 7, what with its massive back-facing camera land and horizontal logo (which is also massive).

Google Nexus 4 8GB model won’t be restocked

Google Nexus 4 8GB model won’t be restocked

Google dropped the price for its Nexus 4 handsets late last month, slashing $100 from the price tag in the Google Play Store. As expected, the handsets were nabbed pretty quickly, with the 8GB model selling out yesterday and a notification going live pronouncing it as such. If you were hoping inventory would be replenished soon, you're in for some bad news: Google says the device won't be restocked.

Nexus 5 aimed at LG: G2-inspired, near-borderless display

Nexus 5 aimed at LG: G2-inspired, near-borderless display

The next device in line for Google's Nexus smartphone lineup would (once again) appear to belong to LG if Vietnam-based media reports are correct. Straight from author Cuhip of Tinhte, the same fellow who brought on the X Phone tour video leak well before the rest of the world earlier this year, comes word of an LG-made Nexus 5 quite similar to a report SlashGear published earlier this month. The big difference here is the (unofficial) confirmation of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, previously suggested to be a bit too expensive to exist in a Nexus 5 would that it were to keep the pricing structure of the Nexus 4.

Nexus 7 LTE release nears as device appears in China

Nexus 7 LTE release nears as device appears in China

Unless what we're seeing this morning is a test model not meant for public consumption, it would appear quite likely that the Nexus 7 LTE is coming to stores imminently. This multi-carrier 4G LTE iteration of the 2013 reboot of the Nexus 7 works with a solution created by Qualcomm to connect with a massive cross-section of 4G LTE bands both in the USA and internationally, making it possible to deliver a single SKU - a single model, that is - that will accept SIM cards from any one of a number of carriers. This model is the one showing up in hands-on photos in China today.
