CES 2013 wrap-up: All about Android

CES 2013 wrap-up: All about Android

While the biggest story of CES 2013 may have been Ultra HD, Android was still a huge part of the show, and it showed up on a handful of new devices that were unveiled this past week. Nobody can deny the impact that Android has had in the technology industry, as well as in tech culture, throughout that past several years. We ended up getting a ton of hands-on time with a number of new Android-powered devices, one of the most-popular being the IdeaPhone K900 from Lenovo, and we ended up talking with Lenovo's Mark Pinner about the new device.

BeBook Live Review

BeBook Live Review

BeBook is a company better known for its ereaders, but the lure of the tablet has proved too great. The BeBook Live is a low-cost Android slate, still proclaiming its ereader heritage but also hoping to earn itself a place as your browsing, multimedia and gaming gadget of choice. With a price significantly lower than that of rival tablets, can the BeBook Live really replace both your iPad and your Kindle in one fell swoop? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 1 2011

Welcome to the first Week in Review of 2011! I hope your hangover is gone and you had a good time this weekend! Last week was an eventful one leading up to CES 2011 kicking off this month and lots of cool stuff turned up. A British DJ created a cool set of records that when overlapped form the CMYK logo. I want them and I don’t even know what kind of music the artist makes.

The Daily Slash: December 29 2010

Before all else, lets travel into the future - behold Technology Predictions for 2011 by supreme master predictor mister Ben Bajarin.

IFA 2010 Wrap-Up

IFA 2010 Wrap-Up

IFA 2010 isn't quite finished yet - the show continues through until midway next week - but it's had its stab at the major headlines. Would-be iPad "killers" and 3D were this year's themes, with Panasonic, Sony, Sharp and others all trying to convince us that the 1080p HDTV we bought a couple of years ago should really be traded in for a new, 3D-capable set. Product of the show, though, has to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab, with the Korean company delivering a slate that we consistently heard people say was significantly more appealing than they expected.

Simulated Moorestown browser test pits Intel against iPad [Video]

Simulated Moorestown browser test pits Intel against iPad [Video]

In among Intel's hyperbole for the Atom Z6xx launch earlier this week were some impressive stats for internet browsing performance, contrasting what users of Moorestown-based MIDs, tablets and smartbooks could expect in comparison with rival devices.  Steve Paine over at UMPC Portal decided he couldn't wait for the first Z6xx demo units, and so set up some browser tests of his own; he locked a Menlow-based Viliv X70 MID to 800MHz and pitted it against the iPad for some real-world surfing.

Dell Mini 5 MID live video

Dell Mini 5 MID live video

Dell were playing the Mini 5 pretty close to their chest back at CES 2010, but the company was a little more open with the MID at MobileFocus this week.  We grabbed some hands-on time, and we have to say we're impressed; the Mini 5 makes the Archos 5 Internet Tablet feel clunky, and while it's just a little too large to be comfortably used as a smartphone, with full phone functionality you could certainly use it as such in a pinch.  Still, the Mini 5 really shines when it comes to media consumption and internet access.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2009

Here we are again with another week in review, let's jump right in. A new 160GB Apple TV has popped up with better integration with iTunes 9. This is a good thing, I have one season of Heroes in HD on my 40GB unit and the thing is almost full. Samsung unveiled a new home theater projector this week called the P410M. With football season now going, a projector is a great way to watch the game with life-size players, assuming your room is large enough.
