ASUS Transformer Prime hands-on with games Bladeslinger, Glowball, Chidori

What you're about to witness is a set of three hands-on videos of a few games that were included on the ASUS Transformer Prime Android tablet when it came to your humble narrator's doorstep last week for review. While none of these three games will be on your tablet when you first pull it out of the box later this month, you'll be able to purchase them eventually, be it the moment you hit the Android Market or sometime early next year when the game is finished. First we've got a platform demo by Chidori in a fighting game, then the already classic Glowball real-time generated 3D environment game, and Bladeslinger - 3rd person battle in the old west with monsters galore.

The Iconia Tab A200 runs Android 3.2 on a Tegra 2 processor, not the newer Tegra 3, promising affordability rather than cutting-edge specs. However, Acer has confirmed that the A200 is in line for an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade come January 2012.

Context, not Cores, is the Tablet Industry’s Challenge

Context, not Cores, is the Tablet Industry’s Challenge

Samsung showed off what makes it special this morning, with the new Exynos 5250 mobile chipset getting official ahead of its debut in next-gen smartphones and tablets next year. A 2GHz dual-core - with what Samsung reckons is twice the overall grunt of the company's current 1.5GHz dual-cores and four times the 3D graphics prowess - the Exynos 5250 is also interesting because, unlike NVIDIA, Samsung has opted for a pair of ARM Cortex A15 cores, rather than four A9 cores as in the Tegra 3. That's going to raise plenty of questions about comparative performance, heat output and power frugality, but perhaps most importantly - in the marketplace, at least - it's going to prompt an interesting marketing challenge for every company pushing a tablet or phone.

Samsung Captivate Glide review

Samsung Captivate Glide review

When it comes to releasing new devices, Samsung and the rest of the manufacturer bunch doesn't always aim for the top of the ladder - case in point, the Samsung Captivate Glide, a dual-core smartphone with a 4-inch Super AMOLED display and a slide-out keyboard. This device is being released on AT&T's 4G network (not LTE, mind you, just regular ol' 4G) and is currently one of the only dual-core smartphones with a keyboard on the market. If we turn away from the keyboard for a moment and focus on the rest of the device, I think you'll find that while this handset certainly doesn't seem to be up to the task of beating down the very top of the pack of smartphones out today, it's certainly a wrestler for the dual-core lovers of you out there in AT&T Land.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime spotted in the wild near iPhone 4, DROID RAZR

This week we both saw the official announcement of the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime and the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor that would power it - and today we get a special treat from ZTOP: a hands-on treatment complete with a size comparison to the comparatively hefty iPhone 4 (or the iPhone 4S). What kind of comparison is that, you might ask, why compare a tablet to a smartphone? Because the iPhone was sitting on the guy's desk and he had an ASUS Transformer Prime to take some photos of, that's why. Also behold a couple of videos from the device which show off some new apps as well.
