It's time for the news-reading app Flipboard to hit the big time on full-sized Android tablets across the board, the company announcing that they've worked with Samsung specifically to handle high-resolution displays galore. This update largely takes on the form of the iPad-optimized user interface, no longer requiring users to side-load the smartphone-sized app to their beastly high-resolution tablets like the Google Nexus 10.

$99 Nexus 7 impersonator appears in benchmarks: ASUS undercut on the way

It's no secret that there's more hardware on the way from ASUS, it's just a question of if it's actually the $99 "Nexus" that's been rumored since before the Google Nexus 7. What we're seeing today is a set of benchmark results coming from GLbench which show a model by the name of ASUS ME172V, a model with specifications ever-so-slightly less fabulous than the Nexus 7.
