[Rumor] Asus Planning to Launch Affordable ($99-149) Smartwatch This Fall

Jun 27, 2014 - 10:01 AM - by dgstorm

According to the latest intel out of Taiwan, Asus is planning to fire a direct shot over the bows of the other Android Wear smartwatch competitors, LG, Motorola and Samsung. Supposedly, they plan to offer a new Android Wear smartwatch in the Fall of this year, but at a highly competitive price, between $99 and $149. This would be a significant discount compared to the Samsung Gear Live at just $200 and the LG G Watch at $225.

Of course, it's also worth noting that by that timeframe rolls around, we might see price drops from these manufacturers as the competition heats up and more devices start flooding the market. The only detail shared regarding Asus' smartwatch offering was that it would include an AMOLED screen, just like the Samsung device, and possible movement and voice controls.

What do you think of Asus' chances of breaking big into this emerging market? The only thing left now is to find out what HTC has cooking.

Google Admits Next Version of Android Will Be Revealed at Google I/O Tomorrow

Jun 24, 2014 - 1:55 PM - by dgstorm

Android chief Sundar Pichai just confirmed today that Google plans to reveal the next version of Android at the Google I/O 2014 developer's conference starting June 25th. Pichai made it clear that the reason why Google is deviating from the norm is because developers and OEMs have been wanting more time with the OS, and he wanted to make that happen.

He elaborated that it's meant to be a big shift toward greater transparency, adding “I want the world to understand what we are doing sooner.”

Pichai didn't go into any further details and gave no mention of which "L" name the next Android version will have.

Beyond that, according to the report at Business Week, Pichai also made it clear that Android Wear will be another primary topic of discussion during the conference. Here's a quote with a few more details,

He’ll also talk about Android Wear, a version of the operating system for fitness trackers and wearable computers, and he’ll announce new manufacturing partners and devices. Google is racing against Apple, which will introduce its iWatch in the fall. Pichai says it’s “crazy” that people visit their doctors, at most, once a year to have their heart rate and blood pressure measured. “You obviously need to be able to measure these things so many more times and then apply more intelligence to it,” he says.
This same report suggested we could also get a glimpse of Android TV. We will keep you apprised all day Thursday and Friday of any interesting developments from the conference.

Angry Birds EPIC, Rovio's Turn Based RPG, is Heading to Android & iOS June 12th

Jun 10, 2014 - 10:04 AM - by dgstorm

If you are a fan of the flavor/style elements of the Angry Birds series, then you might perk up at the above teaser video and this news. Previously we shared teasers regarding Rovio's next game in the Angry Birds universe. This time around the game takes the same characters and world, but the gameplay changes completely. Instead of a physics based action-puzzler, Angry Birds EPIC is a turn based RPG.

Of course, the game still revolves around the feud between the birds and the pigs, but this time it happens in a medieval fantasy world complete with swords and sorcery. For fans of this gaming genre and the Angry Birds theme, this is a welcome and refreshing change up for the series. It looks like game will be hitting Android and iOS devices on June 12th.

Jun 09, 2014 - 10:26 AM - by dgstorm

The above title and picture do not do this sale justice. SanDisk must be having a big inventory blowout, because their sale on Amazon is crazy. It's for today only, (ends at midnight on June 9th, 2014), and includes a huge variety of all of their devices. Discounts range from 25% off to 79% off on microSD cards, USB Flash drives, and even SSD Internal Desktop Drives.

The Amazon ad claims up to 60% off, but they are really underselling some of these deals. Be sure to hit up the source link below to check out these stellar deals.
