The Wikipad gaming tablet is something we have been keeping our eye on ever since we checked it out at CES 2012. Slowly since then the tablet has been evolving with the addition of full gaming controls that attach to the side of the tablet and then Gaikai being integrated onto the device right out of the box.
PC gamers are cured with the want, and need, to have the latest and greatest hardware to fulfill their gaming needs to have the best performance and graphics. We can start saying the same thing is true for mobile gamers now that we have multi-core devices with HD capable screens, peripherals geared for mobile gaming and so on.
A couple of weeks ago we talked about Amazon who not only apparently has an Android phone in the works but a few new tablets as well. As it turns out, Amazon is rumored to have up to six new models of Android tablets gearing up for release including a 10" model.
Archos is a company that is most recently known for producing an affordable line of Android 4.0 tablets. It will continue this trend with the introduction of new line of tablets that will carry a branding Archos is calling "Elements." The first tablet from the Elements line is called the Archos 97 carbon.
Not that this rumor is really that surprising and actually in fact that a Nexus 10 tablet wasn't unveiled at Google I/O is more surprising than this rumor is. However, if you want a Nexus 7 tablet but prefer the large 10" tablet variety, you may actually be in luck.
Well it seems all but confirmed that the Google Nexus 7 tablet which is being made by Asus will indeed be sold on the Google Play store, probably as soon as it is officially announced during Google I/O 2012. Along with this new picture taken from the Google Play store assets, we do get a quick glimpse as to what the UI will look like.
The tablet you see here may very well be the highly anticipated Nexus tablet. For a long time now, word has been spreading that Google is planning to release a tablet that bears the Nexus branding. Asus is expected to be the manufacturer, and an announcement will most likely come at Google I/O this week.
Well it looks like the Google Nexus Tablet is going to be hitting store shelves a bit sooner than anyone expected it to according to a new report from Digitimes. In this report, the 7" Nexus Tablet for Asus has already begun shipping out, at least to San Francisco where it is now going to be officially unveiled during Google I/O 2012.
The larger brother of the Galaxy Note from Samsung has apparently quietly slipped onto Amazon for pre-orders already. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 quad-core tablet will roll on out when it is release with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and is apparently going to be available as soon as 3-5 weeks.
We have been watching and reporting on all the rumors about the Nexus tablet Google has been wanting to release. One rumor is that Asus would be the manufacturer that would be making the device, something that makes a lot of sense. Well it is now confirmed that Asus is indeed making the Nexus tablet.
Asus teased an Android and Windows 8 machine ahead of Computex 2012. It initially seemed that Asus was actually referring to a new partnership with BlueStacks that brings Android apps to its range of PCs. It turns out Asus does have a hybrid device after all.
