NVIDIA has started rolling out the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update to its Tegra Note 7 tablet. The new firmware comes with a couple of new features along with a few improvements to enhance the overall experience of the slate.
The Tegra Note stylus now has better support for left handed users and is a lot sensitive. The addition of DirectStylus option under the setting’s menu, stylus removal and insert notifications are some of the new features on-board. Read more »
After releasing the Android based portable gaming console, Shield, NVIDIA is now entering the popular 7-inch tablet category with the Tegra Note. Just like the Shield, the Tegra Note tablet focuses on gaming but also bundles in stylus functionality at a very attractive price point.
Unlike the Shield, NVIDIA won’t be selling the Tegra Note tablet directly. Instead, it will be manufactured for NVIDIA by OEM partners across the world and sold under their own brands. What we are looking at today is the XOLO Play Tegra Note, which is manufactured and sold by XOLO for NVDIA in India and is similar to the Tegra Note tablet offered by other OEMs such as Gigabyte, EVGA and ZOTAC in other markets. So let’s take a closer look at NVIDIA’s first tablet. Read more »
CES is just two weeks away now it’s the time of the year when ASUS starts building up the hype for its upcoming devices. After launching the invite dubbed In Search Of Incredible a few days ago the company is now airing the first video trailer on YouTube.
This one has the US symbol, the Statue of Liberty, as the main character. Instead of holding up its torch it holds up two fingers in the V formation and then splits the tabula ansata (meaning tablet with handles) in two. What we can gather from this is that we may be in for a new transformer slate from ASUS showcased on the CES floor. Read more »
The Nokia Lumia 2520 parade of ads just keeps on coming. A couple of days ago the Finns released a rather unorthodox video ad, which aimed to promo the tablet to be suitable for both work and play, while the previous one mocked the iPad.
Now, the latest Nokia’s latest ad piece of the Lumia 2520 is far more tastefully done in a 3D animation style and has a lot more positive vibe going for it. Read more »
Samsung is trying to gently enter the Android-powered console market using the Game Pad. The company was showing off the Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 Game Edition, which comes bundled with the Game Pad accessory and an HDMI adapter.
That’s right, while the Game Pad can hold phone ranging from 4″ to 6.3″, it cannot hold tablets, not even 7″ ones. Read more »
Nokia UK has posted a new ad for the Lumia 2520 tablet. There’s no running away from the fact that it’s kind of strange and is up for the viewer’s interpretation.
It portrays a man that wants to get a new haircut entering a barbershop and instead of a professional barber, he gets his hair cut by him tapping the Lumia 2520. It’s weird, I know, but check out the ad for yourself below. Read more »

LG’s upcoming slate, the V510 has been leaked on more than one occasion and we even saw the service manual of the tablet. Now, we have yet another internally leaked document, which shows the device in its white version.
Apart from showing the slate in white, the leaked document also confirms that V510 is a Wi-Fi slate just like the LG G Pad 8.3. So, the V510 is either a regional variant of the LG’s flagship tablet, which doesn’t make much sense (Wi-Fi only tablets works almost everywhere with no need for special versions), or it could be its Nexus sibling as earlier rumors suggests.

Although 3D tablets without glasses have been available since early this year, they haven’t really captured the hearts, and more importantly, the cash of interested consumers. Hammacher Schlemmer is looking to change that with the No Glasses 3D. It is so confident that customers will enjoy their product that they offer a no questions asked full refund to anyone unhappy with it, along with a lifetime warranty, which is almost unheard of in the mobile tech world these days.
The unique retailer is offering what it claims to be a revolutionary 3D experience on its tablet. Utilizing a parallax barrier over the tablet’s display, the screen creates the 3D effect without requiring you to wear special glasses. This is achieved by the parallax barrier displaying separate pixel sets to the user’s eyes – much like the LG Optimus 3D back in the day. Unlike other 3D technologies, the parallax barrier is supposed to provide an easier, unstrained viewing experience. Read more »
