OUYA Kickstarter blasts past $5m mark

This week the Kickstarter phenomenon known as OUYA has reached $5 million dollars pledged for their Android-based gaming console with 22 days left to go.

With more than 5 times their original seed money request, it's time for the developers and engineers behind the project to seriously reconsider their futures in their respective fields - things are looking up!

NVIDIA reportedly bringing Kai strategy to phones

NVIDIA reportedly bringing Kai strategy to phones

Before the Nexus 7 was official announced, NVIDIA hinted that low cost tablets featuring its quad-core Tegra processor were on the horizon thanks to its “Kai” strategy. That would pair the silicon with low-cost internals to drive down the price to an affordable $199. Could the same strategy be applied to smartphones?

At under half the price of a new iPad, it's competitive - though very different - to Apple's slate, but it also undercuts a fair number of other Android tablets too. You can't even accuse Google of milking international buyers to make up the difference, as prices outside of the US are, surprisingly, very reasonable too. The Nexus 7 will sell from £159 in the UK, for instance, versus expectations of around £250. So, how has Google (and hardware partner ASUS) managed to make the Nexus 7 so cheap?

This tablet has a 10.1-inch display with 1920 x 1200 pixels across it, this making it a 224ppi dense display-toting beast of a machine.
