Nexus 7 2013 Review

Nexus 7 2013 Review

The original Nexus 7 arguably marked a turning point in Android tablets, Google finally doing what critics had long been demanding, and wading into the slate market with an own-brand option. With a screen size that undercut the iPad by several inches - and pre-empted the iPad mini by several months - the Nexus 7 also fought hard on price, with razer-thin margins and ruthless specification trimming on the ASUS-made tablet keeping the starting point at under $200. Time - and tablets - wait for no one, though, and with the iPad mini on the scene it was high time for Google and ASUS to rework the Nexus 7. The second-generation, 2013 version promises to be more powerful, more grown-up, and just as affordable, but has Google done enough? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Lenovo Yoga 11 Windows RT seemingly axed as official store stops sales

Lenovo has apparently discontinued its only Windows RT notebook, the IdeaPad Yoga 11 convertible, quietly ceasing sales through its own online store.

Nexus 7 2 details swirl amid price cuts and Android 4.3

While the ASUS-made 7-inch Google tablet continues to be one of their best-selling devices - one of their only devices sold directly through Google Play, to be fair - it has been well over a year since the Nexus 7 was first introduced. Though it has had upgrades in the internal storage department, suggestions of an answer to Apple's next-generation iPad mini have begun to converge here in the summer of 2013.

Flexible plastic camera sensor headed to smartphones, wearables and more

Bendable cameras and sensors that can flex around corners could be on the horizon, with the first flexible image sensor built on plastic being developed by Plastic Logic and ISORG. The 40 x 40 mm sensor uses a flexible, transmissive backplane created by Plastic Logic, on top of which ISORG layers an organic photodetector material turning it into a resilient, lightweight camera module. It's not quite ready to replace the camera in your smartphone, however.

Opera web browser for Android leaves Beta: we go hands-on

Opera web browser for Android leaves Beta: we go hands-on

This week the folks behind the web browser Opera have pushed their Android-based mobile edition past Beta into its first full-fledged release. They've done so with little fanfare, too - so little that it's scarcely made waves here in the spring of 2013 - right between Google's developer conference Google I/O and the technology conference CTIA. It's a fine browser, all said, with a WebKit engine base and a free download set of innards that'll have it competing with the other big guns in web browser downloads.
