Android Hardware Rundown: 2012

Android Hardware Rundown: 2012

2012 was quite a huge year for Android. We saw the jump from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and then to version 4.2.

SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 29 2010

Welcome back after an extended holiday weekend! Many of you've got your new Android smartphones and giant televisions and weirdo oddities under your belt (or maybe you had even more fun by buying those things as presents) and you've come back, hungry for some tech news! Well you're in luck, especially if you DIDN'T pick up your device of choice yet, especially if you live in Korea (where you'll find the LG LU3000, faster than Galaxy S, - that is of course if you dismiss the fact that you might be going to war soon,) in Japan (where Sharp is very soon releasing their fabulous Galapagos tablets,) or the USA (where you can get a FREE G2.) Of course, if you're in Taiwan this week, you'll probably flip out over a ASUS Eee Note EA-800, and if you're in the USA... well... how about a pulse rifle? Or I bet you're on the lookout for a SlashGear Cyber Monday Round Up?! All this and MORE on SlashGear Morning Wrap-up!
