AT&T ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.1 is carrier/OEM first with Android

AT&T ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.1 is carrier/OEM first with Android

This week AT&T is adding a whole pile of devices to their ranks with several smartphones, a smartwatch, and none other than the ASUS MeMO Pad FHD LTE 10.1. This device is the first time the carrier has officially carried an ASUS tablet, and it's certainly a decent one: with a 10.1-inch Full HD display (that's 1920 x 1200 pixels across its face) and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean under the hood, you've got one of the most smooth devices on the market today. While we'd certainly rather be rolling with the slightly more powerful ASUS Tranformer Infinity with it's NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core SoC, this tablet runs with one that's certainly tried and true: the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core SoC.

Lenovo Flex 20 All-in-one aims to replicate Table PC greatness

Lenovo Flex 20 All-in-one aims to replicate Table PC greatness

When we reviewed the larger relative to this Lenovo Flex 20 earlier this year in the company's infamous Horizon Table PC, we found that it was only the basics that were holding us back: it was just too big. Here with the Lenovo Flex 20, it would appear that the team behind that larger beast have created another monster - one that's much more well prepared and reasonable for the real world, with a 19.5-inch HD+ 1600 x 900 pixel resolution display on a multi-mode adjustable built-in back base.

Toshiba Encore hands-on: 8-inch Win 8.1 tablet gives Acer competition

Toshiba Encore hands-on: 8-inch Win 8.1 tablet gives Acer competition

8-inch Windows 8 tablets didn't get off to a particularly auspicious start, with Acer's Iconia W3 struggling to impress with its lackluster display, but Toshiba is hoping the Encore will turn around the trend. Announced at IFA 2013 today, the Encore puts Windows 8.1 on an 8-inch, 1280 x 800 screen run by an Intel Atom Bay Trail T processor and 2GB of LPDDR3 memory; best of all, the display is a wide-angle HFFS panel, which has the viewing angles, consistency of color, and brightness that the Iconia W3 lacked.

Intel elaborates on depth camera tech: Ultrabook and tablet integration in 2014

Intel elaborates on depth camera tech: Ultrabook and tablet integration in 2014

While the details of the launch of Intel depth camera Perceptual Technologies integration with the Creative Senz3D camera haven't changed all that much since our introduction earlier this year, the company has continued to elaborate on what - exactly - will be coming. What we saw earlier this year at Computex 2013 was the first Intel introduction of the Creative Senz3D camera, there with a set of features looking to take on Microsoft's Kinect technology directly. It was also there that Intel VP of marketing Tom Kilroy let known their intentions with releasing the technology on depth-sensing notebook cameras by the end of 2014.

Intel smartphone and tablet chip roadmap leaks: Bay Trail-T the star for Android

Intel smartphone and tablet chip roadmap leaks: Bay Trail-T the star for Android

It would appear that the folks at Intel are not giving up - by any means - on their ventures into the smartphone and tablet universe as a roadmap of processor architecture leaks today. This selection of next-generation hardware will be used in Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Android 4.2 devices, leaving Windows RT in the dust (not that Intel was all that excited about the platform in the first place, as it were). It all begins with a suggestion from Digitimes, Taiwan-based newspaper sources speaking up on two new tablet platforms Cherry Trail and Willow Trail, both of which will come in with 14nm processes.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus hits USA with SideSync this month
