ASUS MeMO Pad 10 Smart revealed in product leak

ASUS MeMO Pad 10 Smart revealed in product leak

This week the folks at ASUS have had a bit of a leak in their pipes with both product images and details surrounding their next Android tablet, the ASUS MeMO Pad 10. This machine (product number ME301T) works with a 10.1-inch IPS LCD display with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor under the hood. Oddly enough, inside this machine you'll find just 1GB of ram, and that display resolution is less than what we've seen on devices like the Transformer Infinity from last year - could this be a budget-minded machine?

Huawei Ascend P2 strikes a pose in leaked press shot

A lot of Android users took interest in the Huawei Ascend Mate P1, so the fact that its rumored follow up is pulling in a lot of attention isn't much of a surprise. Today @evleaks is stoking the fire, leaking a press shot for the Ascent P2. We have to say that the Ascend P2 looks pretty snazzy, with Huawei clearly putting a focus on design with this latest handset.

Galaxy Note 8.0 calls out iPad mini before it’s revealed

Galaxy Note 8.0 calls out iPad mini before it’s revealed

This week we've been hearing our fair share about this next-generation Samsung device known as the Galaxy Note 8.0, and today it's become clear: the competition is on for the iPad mini. While the iPad mini's display is 1024 x 768 across 7.9-inches, the Galaxy Note 8.0 has been tipped as 1280 x 800 across 8-inches - that's just about as close as it gets without perfect replication. We've also seen a supposed early press image leak from the likes of a fellow by the name of @Clasificatearg that, even if it's not straight from Samsung, gives us an idea of how similar this device will likely be to the Apple offering both aesthetically and technically.

Sony smartphone display photo leak tips Galaxy Note competitor

Sony smartphone display photo leak tips Galaxy Note competitor

This week we're seeing no lack of Sony on the mobile front, with a relatively massive component leaking from what its sources say is a plant creating a 6.44-inch phablet for this Summer season. This machine, if proven real, would be a real competitor for not just the Samsung Galaxy Note, but the LG Intuition as well, complete with 1080p or higher resolution, extremely thin bezel coverage around the display, and a teeny-tiny Sony logo up top. Of course when you see a photo like this isn't not exactly drowning in details, but what's obvious is obvious - Sony appears to be getting into the giant smartphone business.

Opera Ice makes mobile web browsing ultra-minimalistic

Opera Ice makes mobile web browsing ultra-minimalistic

This week the folks at Opera Software have given the world a glimpse of their next big (and yet tiny) production: Opera Ice, a mobile web browser to out-simplify every competitor. The mobile version of this browser is the first in a set of browsers that'll also be out for desktop machines and - if you're lucky - in-between machines as well. The aim of this browser is to take what Opera has learned over the past few years about the tendencies of the public to do only a limited number of tasks in a web browser on a mobile device and turn those tendencies into efficiency.

Samsung Galaxy S IV appears in benchmarks with Exynos 5 OCTA

Samsung Galaxy S IV appears in benchmarks with Exynos 5 OCTA

It's time for Exynos 5 - or at least that's what the benchmark results we're seeing today are saying - ready and willing to roll out on the Samsung Galaxy S IV this Spring. While it may be too much to hope for to see the Samsung Galaxy S IV at Mobile World Congress 2013 next month, we certainly can expect this device (Exynos 5 or no) to be appearing before the end of the Summer. Benchmark results here show the device to be working at 1.8Ghz clock speed per core with Android 4.2.1 right out the box.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet tipped for MWC 2013

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet tipped for MWC 2013

In less than a month we'll be seeing a brand new collection of devices prepared for the masses at Mobile World Congress 2013, and today's tip suggests that a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (8-inch tablet) will be amongst them. With two sizes of Samsung Galaxy Note out on the market besides the first 10.1-inch tablet Note, it's not too much of a stretch to think Samsung wouldn't also bring on an 8-inch version of this S-Pen-toting lineup. This machine has today been connected to previous leaks of device codename GT-N5100, spoken about in the past as a 7 or 7.7-inch beast that's never seen the light of day.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus details surface, said to be launching soon

Samsung Galaxy Pocket Plus details surface, said to be launching soon

Rumors of new Samsung devices are commonplace in the smartphone world, but today we're getting details about a rumored Samsung phone that probably isn't going to turn as many heads as the Galaxy S III or the Galaxy Note II did. Regardless, say hello to the Galaxy Pocket Plus, which is rumored to be launching soon. Judging from the image below - which comes courtesy of SamMobile - the Galaxy Pocket Plus isn't going to be anywhere close to the high-end of the smartphone scale, but should prove to be a suitable device for those who want to snag a smartphone on the cheap.

LG confirms Nexus 4 still in production with no 5 on the books

LG confirms Nexus 4 still in production with no 5 on the books

If there's one element in the news universe here that tells us Google is doing things right, it's the constant talk and response to a new Nexus smartphone - even when the current model is doing exceedingly well on the market. Here in first quarter of 2013 heading into Spring (or maybe that's just wishful thinking), we've got rumors galore of a Nexus 5 being worked on for release at Mobile World Congress 2013 from LG, none other than the manufacturers of the Nexus 4. Today they've confirmed that no, that doesn't make any sense, and that yes, they're still making massive amounts of the current Google hero Nexus 4 for the time being.
