So SAMSUNG! Last post we showed the leaked picture of the SIII and I gotta say that it looked really slick. Again, was kinda disappointed since there was still a physical button instead of on screen ones. Anyway, this time I got another "promo" poster and so far it looks legit. Take a look:
|NOTE: In this one pic it seems that the Center button is not there...Who knows what Samsung is planning?|
Now, Moving on the GOOGLE...
They announced that they would try to get some proper tablets for a sweet price of $199. As of right now, there's only 2 pieces of info. The first is that the pricing is $249 and not as low as $199. The second is that Google will delay it to July. However, that is no issue since it is a Tegra 3 Platform. Also the manufacturers WILL be Asus and MIGHT be Samsung as well.
Asus seems to be on a roll! They have stuck to their word and will release the Padfone on April 20th...Coming down to price, it is a premium $610! Then the Station aka Tablet screen would be $240 and the Keyboard extension for $130...The makes a grand total of $980!!! Yes that hurts your wallet a LOT. But I hope that ASUS will realize that fact and drop the price...
If you do happen to buy this amazing device, Asus will bundle it with the sick Bluetooth Headset/Stylus as well as an extended phone battery.
They also announced a dongle to fix the GPS issues in the Prime. That dongle will fit seamlessly at the bottom of the Prime by the dock connector and supposedly will increase the ability for the Satellites to lock on. This will be FREE for any one who has bought a Transformer Prime. More info will be up soon on how to set this up.
HTC just got happy since they announced the ONE series and now they are available. If you have a budget, I suggest to wait this through since their flagship 2012 device, the ONE X is gonna cost a hefty $800! But if that is no issue, go on ahead and enjoy the new tech. Also it has already been ROOTED :D
CM9 has been on a roll and then after a while the updates dropped because of lack of Server requirments. The amount of Code that they were processing was too much for the really deezed servers they had. But fear not, they will gradually get back on their feet and provide an awesome Upgraded ROM. The news though is that Team Cyanogen decided to change their mascot, from the traditional Blue Andy to a newly designed character that represents their ROMs. He is called CID, Cyanogen I.D. Tale a look below:
