[New App] Blockbuster Launches New Disc Rental Android App To Complement 10 Streaming Apps

Blockbuster probably has bigger problems than scattershot Android app development, but it's a problem nonetheless. On the surface any effort to clean things up seems like a great idea, but the way Blockbuster has gone about it is... well, bizarre. The company, which was acquired by Dish when everyone stopped renting discs, has released a new Android app. Can you guess what it's for? Yep, renting discs. Brilliant!

Blockbuster's movie streaming apps appear to still be listed in the Play Store, but these are device specific. There is one app for HTC devices, one for LG devices, and so on.

[CES 2013] Intel Uncovers Low-Power Atom Platform For 'Value Smartphone' Market, 'Bay Trail' Quad Core SoC For Tablets

Intel, not to be left out of the early CES fun, had a couple of announcements for tech fans today – a low-powered platform formerly known as "Lexington," (lovingly called Atom Z2420) for "emerging" value smartphone markets, and the Atom Z2760, codenamed "Bay Trail" headed for tablets and higher-end smartphones.

Intel says that it's already found partners in Acer, Lava International, and Safaricom for the Z2420 platform, and that the chip will be capable of 1.2GHz speed, 1080p hardware acceleration, and support for two cameras (with burst mode). With the Z2420, Intel is hoping to target what most call the budget smartphone market, which their release indicates will reach 500 million units by 2015 according to "industry sources."

The high-end Bay Trail SoC, meanwhile, is a quad core, 22nm chip that Intel hopes will expand tablet prospects in both the Windows 8 and Android arenas.

AT&T Offers Up More Movies And Choices To U-verse Customers With Its All New 'Screen Pack'

Movies are fantastic. Not all movies, per se – but the idea of movies. They can transport us into other worlds, get to visit places we may never otherwise see, have the chance to relive world-changing events, and so much more all from the comfort of a seat. With that – have you seen Texas Chainsaw 3D? It's definitely worth watching.

But I digress. This isn't about my obsession with the TCM series, oh no – it's about AT&T. Not quite as interesting, I know. So here it is: Big Blue is offering a new service to U-verse subscribers that will bring a whole slew of on-demand movies to their TVs, computers, and – of course – tablets and smartphones through the U-verse app.

[CES 2013] Eyes-On / Announcement: The Xperia Z And ZL From Sony's Press Conference

In quite an interesting turn of events, at its CES press conference, Sony has laid its wares bare on the show floor: the Xperia Z and ZL are there for all to gawk at. Unfortunately, we aren't allowed to go hands-on yet, but we figured we'd tide you over with some photos before we actually get to the touch-feely part. The Z has been announced officially, as well.

[CES 2013] Huawei's 6.1-inch Ascend Mate Is Official, Ready To Split Pockets In February

We had heard that Huawei was going to shock the world (or at least impressionable gadget lovers) with an enormous smartphone, and they've made it official here at CES. The Ascend Mate is real, it's got a 6.1-inch screen, and it will be coming to China in February. That monster panel is a 720p IPS LCD - strangely, a lower resolution than the new 5-inch Ascend D2 - and gives the device a 73% screen-to-body ratio. Something called Magic Touch, which Huawei isn't elaborating on in the press materials, will make the screen work through gloves. Interestingly, there doesn't seem to be a stylus included.

[CES 2013] NETGEAR Announces NeoTV PRIME – A Google TV Set Top Box With Some Added Streaming Features

In case you thought Google TV was of such low importance that it wouldn't make an appearance at CES, NETGEAR is here to prove you wrong. The new NeoTV PRIME is a welcome update of the old NeoTV Pro and MAX boxes from last year. The PRIME essentially adds Google TV to handle the online streaming while NETGEAR makes your local content more useful.

NETGEAR, INC. NEOTV PRIME

NeoTV PRIME supports the playback of your personal (and I'm sure totally legal) video files via a USB thumbdrive or external hard drive. If you have a media server set up at home, you can even stream to the NeoTV PRIME over your network.

[CES 2013] Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Gaining LTE Powers, Coming To Verizon This Month

Samsung's on stage today at CES announcing all the devices (TVs, cameras, smart fridges and microwaves... seriously). Among them is a shiny new LTE version of the Galaxy Note 10.1. No word on how much the unit is going to cost but it will be arriving on Verizon sometime this month.

There's also no word yet on how much the plans will cost, but we can likely expect it will launch with comparable prices to the myriad other LTE tablets with Share Everything plans. So, what do you think? Does an LTE modem make you want this slate more?

[CES 2013] Huawei Unveils Its New Flagship Ascend D2, With 5-inch 1080p Screen, 13MP Camera, And 3000mAh Battery

For better or worse, five inches seems to be the new target for flagship Android devices. Huawei is bringing its game to CES (unlike most manufacturers that are holding back for Mobile World Congress) with the Ascend D2, a new Jelly Bean 4.1 device sporting a 5-inch 1080p LCD panel and the in-house K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU. Other highlights include a 13MP camera (narrowly beating out Alcatel's One Touch Idol Ultra) and respectable 9.9mm waist. Stylistically, it looks a lot like a beefed-up Galaxy S II, minus the physical navigation buttons.

HUAWEI DEVICE ASCEND D2

Perhaps most importantly for power users, the Ascend D2 comes packed with a massive 3,000mAh battery, sliding in just below the Galaxy Note II in total capacity.
