Sep 03, 2014 - 8:46 AM - by dgstorm

Before the big Samsung event kicks off in about ten minutes, here's a quick IFA update from Asus. They just announced a couple of new products. The first is their new MeMo Pad 7 which will now have a full-HD display.
Here's the full spec list: Intel Atom CPU, a 64-bit quad-core Z3560 clocked at 1.83 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, microSD slot that can accommodate 64 GB cards, 5 MP camera at the back, 2 MP shooter at the front and 16 GB free cloud storage.

It will be available for €199 (about $260), and will be offered in red, gold and black color variations.

The other device they shared is the Zenwatch Android Wear smartwatch. You can check out the video above for a teaser. Not too many details were revealed regarding this device, but it will sell for 199 Euros. There's no word if Asus plans to bring it to the US.

New 7-Inch Intel-Powered Asus Tablet Stops by the FCC

Aug 05, 2014 - 10:27 AM - by dgstorm

Intel has had a hard time competing with Qualcomm when it comes to chipsets in mobile devices. Of course, that isn't going to stop "Chipzilla" from trying, and their latest offering just showed up in a 7-inch tablet as it stopped by the FCC offices for its certification testing.

The tablet in question will include the Intel 64-bit Moorefield processor called the Atom Z3560. It's a quad-core processor running at up to 1.8GHz. It also will sport the following specs:
  • IPS LCD with a resolution of 1200 by 1920 pixels
  • 5MP camera on the back and a smaller one on the front
  • The usual smattering of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS
  • 16 or 32 gigabytes storage space

Several questions remain. First, will this be an Android tablet? Also, if it is, will it be a new MeMo or will we see another Asus made Nexus 7 (perhaps called the 2014 Edition)?

What do you think it is?

John Woo Makes Games Now Too! 'BloodStroke' in the Google Play Store

Jul 29, 2014 - 11:18 AM - by dgstorm

There's a stylish new action game for Android available on the Google Play Store, and it is supposedly a game from famed movie director John Woo. It's called BloodStroke and sells for only $0.99 at this moment. Your character's name is Lotus, and she is a private security and combat specialist who has been betrayed by her employer. Here's a quote with a description,

Legendary filmmaker John Woo presents his action-packed mobile debut, Bloodstroke.
Gun in one hand, a blade in the other, Private Security Agent, Mai Lee – codenamed Lotus, shoots and slices through the street of Hong Kong and Beijing to ensure the safety of her first assignment.

This app offers in-app purchases. You may restrict in-app purchasing using your device settings.

"Bloodstroke is a terrific action game." – Touch Arcade, 4/5

"Compelling, fast-paced, and action-packed, Bloodstroke is the perfect time-killer" – 148 Apps, 4.5/5

"Bloodstroke is a bloody and beautiful good time." – Gamezebo, 4/5

ANY MEANS NECESSARY
Protect Dr. Koorse at all costs! Draw enemy fire and use a selection of lethal melee weapons and guns to keep gangsters, snipers and katana-wielding bikers from assassinating your client.

PAINT THE TOWN RED
Equip Lotus with an arsenal of deadly blades and firearms. Cut down your foes using dual chackrams and blow them away with grenade launchers and shotguns to decorate the streets of China with red ink.

ARTISTIC ACTION
Blending traditional brushstroke visuals with John Woo's signature balletic violence, Bloodstroke is authentically presented with distinct graphics and sleek comic book panel cut-scenes that unravel into a compelling tale of betrayal.

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

Jun 27, 2014 - 11:01 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 - 2:55 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.
