SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 9, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. Earlier today, we found out that Samsung may be planning a Nexus 10 tablet, complete with a resolution to give the third-gen iPad a run for its money. ZTE gave its response to yesterday's allegations that it may be helping the Chinese government spy on the US, and Apple started shipping the fifth-generation iPod Touch to the first customers today. We heard that the rumored 32GB Nexus 7 variant might be replacing the 16GB model, and speaking of the Nexus 7, it received Android 4.1.2 today, which adds a much-needed landscape mode.

Motorola kills Android Webtop

Motorola kills Android Webtop

Motorola has axed development of its Webtop system, claiming underwhelming sales means further investment in the idea of using a smartphone as the core of a desktop-replacement hub was unfeasible. Webtop, a custom feature of several recent Motorola Android smartphones, worked with desktop docks and notebook-like Lapdock clamshells to offer a full version of Firefox among other features; however, Motorola confirmed to CNET, the expectation is that core Android functionality itself will make its own Webtop work redundant.

AT&T Motorola Atrix HD hands-on and unboxing

AT&T Motorola Atrix HD hands-on and unboxing

This week we've got the newest version of Motorola and AT&T's line of powerful smartphones, this time dubbed Atrix HD due to its ultra high resolution display. This device also runs on AT&T's 4G LTE network and closely resembles the device on Verizon known as the DROID RAZR. Here we've got a white casing surrounding a lovely curved-edges-having reinforced glass-covered display that's no less than 329 PPI, that being a resolution that's only beaten by 3 other devices on the market today, none of them having the build that this one does. In addition, Motorola is letting us know that they've dubbed this device as having 720p HD ColorBoost technology - we'll see how that plays out soon enough. For now, we sure as heck know it's bright.

Motorola with Android Voice Actions battles Siri in comparison video

Motorola with Android Voice Actions battles Siri in comparison video

Motorola has decided to take a jab at Apple's Siri intelligent voice assistant app by pitting it against Android's Voice Actions feature running on an Atrix 2, Photon 4G, and Electrify. In all three comparison videos, Siri gets beat down complete with the knockout bell sound effects. However, the video does come direct from Motorola, not exactly an unbiased source, so some rigging or editing isn't completely out of the question. Continue after the cut to watch and judge for yourself.

Samsung DoubleTime Review

Samsung DoubleTime Review

Android and Samsung have such an all-encompassing strategy going on as of late that every tier of the smartphone market is saturated with a combination of the two, from the top all the way to the bottom - a good example of how to do the bottom RIGHT is in the device you see here, the Samsung DoubleTime. What we're going to compare this device to are a few other similarly-stacked devices on AT&T, but you'll understand before the end of this that AT&T's selection of Android devices relies so heavily on top-tier smartphones that the Samsung DoubleTime may well have a market to do well in. Imagine that!

Motorola XOOM 2 priced but pointless

Motorola XOOM 2 priced but pointless

Just this morning we got our first official glimpse of two new Motorola tablets, the XOOM 2 and the XOOM 2 Media Edition, and just now we've got the first prices as set by Clove. For those of you that've never been there, Clove is a retailer that tends to the UK, and prices for these new editions have been set at £325 + VAT for the XOOM 2 and £299 + VAT for the XOOM 2 Media Edition. For comparison, the XOOM original with Wi-fi only currently costs £274.99 at the same store and cost £449.99 at launch. With only incremental updates to the specifications of these tablets over the original XOOM, is this Motorola's idea of a joke?

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

Back when the world hadn't yet tasted more than a single core in a smartphone here in the USA, there was the ATRIX 4G, and now that the large part of a year has passed and dual-core processors are the norm, the ATRIX 2 pops up with a few improved specs and a whole new body - is it time to upgrade? We've got more than a few questions (and a few answers, too!) about the ATRIX 2 including why it exists and how it'll stand up against the rest of the very well-suited superphone environment again here in the USA. Did Motorola create another ATRIX just for the fun of it, or is this truly the next-level device ATRIX lovers of the past have been waiting for?
