Archos unleashes new hybrid Android tablet for $279

November 6, 2013

The tablet, which debuted to positive reception at IFA 2013 in September, is the successor to last year’s 101 XS and offers a 10.1-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9 ARM processor and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

It also comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, dual-band Wi-Fi, and the neat Coverboard magnetic keyboard cover which was also on the first-generation model.

Somewhat unsurprisingly considering these middling specs, the tablet is now available at U.S. retailers for a respectable $279.

ARM’s 16-core Mali chip promise to boost tablet features

October 29, 2013

The high-end chip, called the Mali-T760, is ARM’s most powerful GPU design to date and will be aimed at devices priced at around $350 and above, ARM said Tuesday.

ARM also released the lower-end Mali-T720, its first GPU for midrange devices. 

Mali chips are used in about half the Android tablets sold today and about a fifth of the smartphones, according to ARM’s VP of solution marketing Trina Watt.

Intel’s next Bay Trail processors could make for even cheaper Android tablets

October 15, 2013

Unnamed sources from “tablet players” told Taiwanese website Digitimes that the new processors are likely to be cheaper than the current models, a sign perhaps that Intel is looking to compete directly with ARM in the low-end market.

The same sources apparently expect the CPUs to be priced between $15 and $20, about $12 than the current models.

In the past, Intel is said to have offered subsidies on its Bay Trail-T processors – including discounts for OEMs on bulk ordering – but prices supposedly remained more expensive than ARM-based quad-core processors from the likes of Nvidia, Qualcomm and Mediatek.

Intel says strike up the tablet band (video)

September 28, 2013

Intel called on Sydney, Australia-based agency The Monkeys and production company Finch to create "Intelligent Sounds," a music-and-lights spectacle in which robots and an army of 60 Intel-powered tablets perform an original track created specifically for the campaign.

The tablets perform a variety of roles, acting as controllers, displays and even the "conductor." Each "member" of the band was programmed to play on command when it was struck by a robot arm.

"It is commonplace to have tablets play your music, but it's rare to have tablets create them," said Jayan Murty, Intel's director of brand strategy and integrated [...]

Rumor: Nokia’s Windows RT tablet is called the Lumia 2520

September 23, 2013

“Nokia Sirius = Lumia 2520,” wrote Twitter tipster evleaks on Saturday, referring to the firm’s much-rumored tablet project.

According to The Verge and WinSuperSite, the tablet features a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 IPS display, a 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm 8974 ARM processor and will run Windows 8.1 RT. The model will apparently sell for around $499.

Nokia is expected to announce the tablet, alongside the widely-publicized Lumia 1520 phablet, at an event in New York on October 22.

Rumor: Samsung will release 12-inch tablet in October

August 19, 2013

Citing unnamed industry sources, The Korean Economic Daily reports that the tablet will use a “higher than Full HD resolution” display from Samsung Display and claims that the model will be launched sometime in October.

Digitimes last week reported said that both Samsung and Apple are working on bigger tablets, but revealed that Apple is likely to be less proactive in this space for fear of cannibalizing its 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch MacBook Airs. The Wall Street Journal has previously claimed that Apple is testing a 12.9-inch iPad – which has been dubbed the “iPad Maxi” in some quarters.

There hasn't much in the ways of specs for [...]

Is HP testing a new Android tablet?

August 14, 2013

Benchmark results recently showed up at GFXBench, with these revealing a HP device with a high-resolution 1600 x 1200 display, an Nvidia Tegra 4 ARM Cortex A-15 processor and the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.

The results have subsequently been removed from the website although the folks at Notebook Italia and The Droid Guy managed to grab screenshots.

HP recently returned to the Android tablet market with the low-end Slate 7 and the hybrid Slatebook X2.

Next Kindle Fire tablet may use octa-core processor to take on Nexus 7

August 12, 2013

According to a report in Digitimes, the MediaTek chip is actually a quad-core solution that uses ARM Holding's big.LITTLE architecture. What this means is that the chip has four high-powered cores for performance intensive tasks, but also four low-powered cores that get activated when idle or using less demanding applications (all 8-cores aren't activated at the same time).

No word on how soon Amazon might release its next Kindle Fire. Several competitors, including Google, matched the $199 price Amazon established with the first Kindle Fire tablet, but Google priced its newest Nexus 7 starting at $229, so it will be interesting to see if Amazon is able to stay at [...]
