As much as I love gaming on my mobile devices, I'm always reminded about how restrictive some games can become due to a lack of physical buttons. Some games just don't work well with virtual controls, and it leaves me with sweaty hands and a sense of dissatisfaction. Evolution Controllers has just the product for people that share my frustrations, but it needs funding to get its Drone controller into production.
Sharp has come out to showcase their new Evangelion Android phone which, for what we see in the photos, is extremely drool worthy, especial for those of you who are fans of the anime. This particular device is apparently to coincide with the release of the upcoming Neon Genesis Evangelion movie.
Following our previous story about nVidia talking about their new Kepler GPU which is their new 28nm GPU chip that has started making an appearance in their new GTX 680 PC card. We also mentioned in that article that they plan to bring it to mobile devices as well.
Verizon has one heck of a deal going on right now for the HTC Rezound. If you're willing to sign a two-year contract, the Rezound can be yours for only $49.99 after a promotional discount and the standard contract discount. There are no mail-in rebates to be had here.
Sony recently started allowing developers and Android tinkerers in general to download a beta Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for the Xperia Play. Sony is specifically looking for feedback on how well the games on the Xperia Play run on the new operating system. Sony is taking all that data and using it to make the official ICS update for the Xperia Play as stable as possible.
This may not be surprising to a lot of people, especially if you follow the PC gaming industry and the hardware involved. nVidia last week announced their newest graphics card, the GTX 680 which will feature nVidia's newest GPU called Kepler.
We can't say we are surprised someone has developed this little gadget. In fact we are surprised it hasn't been done sooner than now. Simon Ford, who happens to be the Director of Tools from ARM, has created a USD slingshot to use when playing Angry Birds to get that a little closer to feeling yourself truly flinging a bird and stone block and wood planks.
Well here is some interesting news regarding what was supposed to be HTC's quad-core Android phone. Well, actually, it will still be sporting the Tegra 3 quad-core chipset in it everywhere it is launched except for here in the US.
It was only a matter of time before rumors of an Xperia Play 2 started floating around. The original was released over a year ago and has since only seen different versions for different carriers sporting special colors but no hardware changes. Before we dive into this on any sort of level, seriously consider this a big fat rumor of mass proportions.
Our friends over at nVidia have told us that they have coined a new term, or slogan if you will, to describe the Tegra 3 quad-core chipset which is actually five cores in total and not four. The fifth core, which is essentially the power management core, has been referred to using many different terms.
One of the quad-core phones that will apparently be making an appearance at MWC 2012 is the LG 3X, their quad-core Tegra 3 Android phone. Now the official name for release seems to have come out as well as speculation that it will be the follow-up to the G2X on T-Mobile.
