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.

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

Jun 10, 2014 - 11:04 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.

[Deal Alert] SanDisk Having a Monster 24 Hour Sale on Amazon; Several 70+% Off Items

Jun 09, 2014 - 11:26 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.

Asus Officially Outs the Transformer Book V; Windows/Android Dual Boot Hybrid Device

Jun 02, 2014 - 10:47 AM - by dgstorm

It looks like Asus is truly trying to create a device that is nearly all things to all people. Frequently, that type of strategy fails, but it's possible Asus may have hit on that magical winning combination. They just announced the Transformer Book V, which is a tablet/phone/laptop hybrid device. Along with the all-in-one combination of these physical devices, it even includes the ability to dual-boot between Windows and Android on the tablet and laptop portions of the device.

Here's what the Transformer Book V consists of:

  • It has a 12.5-inch tablet screen dock
  • Combining the phone with the tablet dock makes it a tablet
  • Combining the phone & tablet with the keyboard dock transforms it into a laptop
  • While in tablet or laptop mode it can switch between Windows and Android (although the phone is Android only)
  • The phone section contains an Intel Moorefield chip
  • The keyboard dock section contains an Intel Core CPU
  • It contains 2GB of RAM in the phone/tablet
  • While the laptop section has 4GB of RAM
  • The phone and tablet use 64GB of storage and the laptop has 128GB of storage

The only other specs/hardware revealed was the following:

  • 1 x DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz)
  • 1 x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 (4K at 60Hz)
  • 1 x HDMI 2.0 (4K at 60Hz) / MHL 3.0 (4K at 30Hz)
  • 1 x HDMI 1.4 (4K at 30Hz)
  • 4 x USB 3.0 ports

Asus is really taking things to a whole new level with the "Transformer" series. The name is more fitting than ever!
