EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

EVGA Tegra Note 7 Review

The stylus was dead, and now it's back. What once was the hallmark of cheap touchscreens and finger-unfriendly software has, thanks in no small part to Samsung's efforts with its Galaxy Note range, had a second-wind; even the popularity of aftermarket capacitive pens for the iPad suggests not every iOS user agrees with Steve Jobs that "if you see a stylus, they blew it." Now NVIDIA is wading into the fray, targeting not only pen control but a low price too, with the Tegra Note 7. Set to be sold under different brands in different countries - such as the EVGA model on the SlashGear test bench - the Tegra Note 7 claims similar functionality to Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 but at just $199. Over-ambitious? Read on for our full review.

The Auto Vivisectionist: Inside GM’s Secret Teardown Lab

The Auto Vivisectionist: Inside GM’s Secret Teardown Lab

It's the killing ground where hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of SUVs, sports cars, and sedans meet their grisly end before they have more than a handful of miles on the clock. Some of General Motor's earliest work on building new models comes as much from tearing apart cars as it does piecing together fresh parts. That's the odd double approach of the Competitive Teardown Area, the high-security garage where cutting edge 3D printing and rapid prototyping sits alongside socket sets and angle grinders. The luckier cars start as homegrown constituent parts and leave as near-complete mockups of tomorrow's models; the unlucky ones - often wearing badges from Ford, Mercedes, Honda, Toyota, and other GM rivals - are making their final journey in one piece when they roll in through gates. It's the sort of place where, ordinarily, you'd need to be part of GM's engineering inner-circle to walk around, but SlashGear was invited to pay a special visit.

IFA 2013 Wrap-Up

IFA 2013 has come and gone, and with the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, various super-sized (and often curved) TVs, and a number of superlative-toting smartphones, there was no shortage of geek appeal.

With the smartphone with what's undoubtedly the most home-baked accessories to be shown off at once here at IFA 2013, the Alcatel One Tough Hero is certainly a smartphone to behold. What we're witnessing here is a device that's interesting in and of itself with a 6-inch display running at Full HD - 1920 x 1080 - over an unnamed quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal memory OR 8GB of internal memory. This device may or may not be launching later this year with a variety of add-on bits and pieces as well.

PocketBook e-paper Samsung Galaxy S 4 ereader case hands-on

PocketBook e-paper Samsung Galaxy S 4 ereader case hands-on

Samsung's Galaxy S 4 may have a great Super AMOLED display out of the box, but it's overkill for ereading duties and, E Ink would argue, isn't really best suited to browsing through ebooks. Enter PocketBook's accessory case for the Galaxy S 4, a fold-out case complete with a 4.8-inch e-paper screen on the inside of the cover. The concept is simple: browse to a book you want to read on the phone, and then flip it over to the e-paper display for low-power reading.

The team at Amazon behind the Kindle have refreshed the Kindle Paperwhite with a boost to both software and hardware, and all the way over in Berlin this week we're having another look at it.
