Onyx hasn’t said much about their upcoming 8″ ebook reader since first quietly announcing it this spring, so when these several photos crossed my desk today I had to share.
Onyx showed off the i86 and other ereaders at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair earlier this month, and zol.com.cn got a few photos. To be honest, I don’t have much to show you and tell you other than the 3 photos, but I found them interesting and I bet I am not the only one who feels that way. Continue reading
The idea of assembling a DIY mobile device has long since fallen out of the mainstream, but if Project Ara is successful then that could change.
For the past couple years Google has been working on, well, they’ve been working on many hardware projects, but the one that has me waiting with bated breath is Project Ara. Continue reading
One of the more anticipated tablets of 2014, the Hisense Sero 8 Pro is also one of the more illusive. It’s only shown up in public once, at IFA Berlin last month, and now it is beginning to show up on Chinese gadget blogs. Continue reading
The Earl back country tablet continues to hold its own as one of the most delayed gadgets of 2013 and 2014. This tablet was originally scheduled to be released by the end of last summer, but the latest update from its developers have revealed that it is still under development and has yet to get its wireless certifications or enter mass production.
A new update on the Earl was posted last week on the Sqigle website, saying in part that: Continue reading
The Kindle Voyage from Amazon may be getting all the ereader buzz this week but it’s not the only premium ebook reader on the market. There’s also the Kobo Aura H2O, and the Boox T68 Lynx, an Android ereader with a 6.8″ screen.
A couple days ago I pulled my T68 Lynx out of storage to test a couple apps at the request of a reader, and now that I have it in my hands again I’m remembering why I liked it so much. Continue reading
AT&T may have just confirmed what that market survey report suggested last week: practically no one has bought the Fire Phone. The telecom has just announced a new bundle offer for the Fire Phone. Buy one and they will throw in a Fire HDX tablet for $49.
That tablet retails for $179 on Amazon.com, which means that AT&T and/or Amazon have decided to eat $130 of the retail price in order to move more Fire Phones. And that is on top of the current low low price for the Fire Phone, which is available with a two year contract for under a dollar. Continue reading
As predicted by this blogger a couple weeks ago, Barnes & Noble officially launched the 10″ version of their co-branded Galaxy Tab 4 Nook. The new Android tablet is available today in B&N stores and on Nook.com, where it is selling for a retail of $299. Continue reading
Amazon’s $99 Android tablet will probably never grace my todo list (not unless my current unit dies) but that doesn’t mean I’m not as interested in it as the next gadget blogger.
While digging through Youtube today, I found a hands on video worth watching. It wasn’t made by a pro gadget blogger (which is part of the reason why I like it), but the guy has used Amazon’s other tablets and he regularly shoots videos of RC helicopters and other topics. Continue reading
Google announced their latest Android tablet earlier this week, and while the English language blogosphere is still waiting to touch the winder-tablet a few lucky souls in Vietnam have gotten their hands on this 9″ tablet.
Sforum has posted a hands on video of the Nexus 9. It doesn’t exactly share a lot of the more intricate details, but the video does give a good idea how the Nexus 9 will look in the real world. Continue reading
Pundits have been speculating for a couple months now that sales of Amazon’s smartphone have been dismal, and of there’s any truth to the consumer survey which just crossed my desk, they’re right.
A new report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners shows that Amazon prime members, consumers who could be described as the company’s most loyal shoppers, aren’t buying the Fire Phone. Continue reading
