SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 21, 2012

Friday is here once again, which means that for many of us, the weekend has already started. Of course, today was the big iPhone 5 launch, and there was no lack of news stories to go along with it. Before the iPhone 5 landed in the US, it launched in the UK and Japan and was greeted by long lines. We also had a couple of drop tests hit the Internet - in the first one we saw, the iPhone 5 didn't fare too well, but in the second drop test, it emerged victorious over the Samsung Galaxy S III. We also talk about all of the different options you have on your disposal on this launch day, so if you're thinking of picking up an iPhone 5, be sure to check that out.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: September 20, 2012

Welcome to Thursday evening folks - just one more day until the weekend is officially here. iOS 6 has been out for a little more than a day now, and while there are a lot of new features to get excited about, Apple's new Maps app seems to be spoiling the party. Many are bummed that Apple Maps doesn't feature public transportation routes like Google Maps, and a group of developers set out to solve that problem with a new hack. Meanwhile, Nokia took a few shots at Apple Maps today, and we found out that iOS 6 landed on 15% of all Apple devices within the first 24 hours of release.

Samsung S-Pen patent app tips wireless headset stylus plans

Samsung isn't resting on its laurels with the S-Pen for its touchscreen tablets, cooking up a digital stylus that also includes a radio for use as a wireless headset. The next-gen S-Pen, revealed in a new Samsung patent application, would operate as a capacitive stylus for use with regular touchscreens - rather than demanding the sort of active digitizer found in Samsung's Galaxy Note - and as a remote handset over a short-range wireless connection.

ASUS teases dual-boot Android Windows 8 machine for Computex

ASUS teases dual-boot Android Windows 8 machine for Computex

This year at Computex we're likely going to be seeing a dual-booting Android / Windows 8 device coming from ASUS, the company that brought you the dual-device PadFone last year at this same event. The device we'll be looking at will likely have much of the same impact of that device - that device having gone through quite a few revisions before hitting the market in the end with just Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich rather than its original Android 3.0 Honeycomb/Gingerbread combination. What we're expecting this time instead of a phone that plugs into a tablet is a tablet that plugs into a notebook - dual-booting Windows 8 and Android 4.0 might mean a whole new generation of ASUS Transformer Pads for the world by the end of the year.

28nm production halt could delay Snapdragon S4 products

28nm production halt could delay Snapdragon S4 products

Qualcomm have so far avoided chasing cores, saying that Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core chip is “overkill”. Instead the company is hoping that the latest version of its Snapdragon chip, the S4 “Krait”, will provide enough performance with just two cores. While development platforms have gone out to various publications and developers for testing, the 28nm chip could be facing production delays, which would have a knock-on effect on phones like the HTC One X and One S.

Android 5.0 Jelly Bean tipped by ASUS

Android 5.0 Jelly Bean tipped by ASUS

There's a good chance that the next version of Android will be code-named Jellybean, that we already knew - now what we're hearing from ASUS is that they're quite likely to be on the list to be first on the market with said operating system. Generally Google chooses one manufacturer to work closely with them to create one of what they call their "Nexus" line of devices to demonstrate a "vanilla" or "virgin" version of their newest operating system. As ASUS now has a close relationship with Google, so says their corporate vice president, they'll likely be amongst the first to release a device with the update right out of the box.
