We found 3308 results for 'tegra 2'
Phew, that's quite the headline. Engadget has once again scooped some shots of a forthcoming Android device, this time the oft-rumored LG Optimus dual-core device. While there are still a few specifics we'd like to know (like the screen resolution), there is plenty in this leak to get excited over:
- 4.0" widescreen display. Unknown resolution at this point, but lest we forget, LG are responsible for the rather fantastic 960x640 panel in the iPhone 4
- 8 MPx rear camera, capable of video capture up to 1920x1080.
Take this one with a huge grain of salt: DigiTimes is reporting, yet again, that HTC is about to enter the tablet market by leveraging their expertise with Android and their relations with carriers around the world. The rumours point to a launch date in early 2011 and specs that certainly look good, but would you pay the rumoured price of $790 for it?
The claimed specs:
- 1280×720 display (from earlier reports, that may point towards Gingerbread)
- nVidia Tegra 2 SoC
- 32 GB SSD
- 2 GB RAM
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
- Full Android Market
- Support for Chrome Web Apps
That Tegra 2 chipset should provide enough power to surpass the iPad and make for a very fluid experience. Read More
It looks like LG doesn’t want Samsung to get all the dual core glory. The company has just announced their own plans for dual core smartphones, this time using the the NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor that we’ve already seen power a few Android tablets. The expected Q4 release of these phones (interestingly, the same timeframe as Samsung) seems to line up with the release of an Android-powered LG phone headed to T-Mobile. Read More
If you’ve been thinking of diving into the tablet market recently and are looking for an alternative to Apple’s iPad, you may want to direct your attention to Aigo’s new tablet: the N700.
Running on a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 processor coupled with 512MB of memory and NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 chip, the N700 certainly knows how to make an entrance. You’ll find a 7-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 800 x 480, inbuilt storage of either 4, 16 or 32GB and, of course, Android 2.1 to match. Read More
Logitech announced today that its UE Boom 2 and Megaboom speakers are being updated to add support for Google Now voice interactions. To use it, just press the Bluetooth button, and I'll let Engadget's explainer take away the rest:
Just do a quick press of the small Bluetooth button on the top of the speaker and wait to hear the audible prompt, which is the same as when you say "OK Google" or press the microphone icon for voice control on your phone. Both the Bluetooth button and the power button will flash during this interaction. If you're playing music while dropping into voice control functionality, it will pause and listen for your inquiry.
Fans of Android Wear have plenty to be excited about. A major update was just announced during the Google I/O 2016 keynote with many of the features users have been looking forward to. The headlining additions to the platform focus largely on more advanced watchfaces, improvements for messaging, and expanded integration and more automatic use of the Google Fit platform. A Preview program is also being launched for Wear, so developers will be able to work on new apps for the platform before official rollouts begin.
If you want a quick overview of what's new, watch our Wear 2.0 hands-on video. Read More
Virtual reality is the tech topic du jour, with nearly every major hardware and software company (or one of their partners) looking into it in some capacity. Time will tell if this is just a fad or something that will truly change the way we interact with technology, but Google is hedging its bets. In addition to the growing Cardboard VR platform, a few user-facing changes in the second developer preview of Android N point to more robust support for virtual reality in the future. Read More
Cyanogen Inc is rolling out Cyanogen OS 12.1.1 for the OnePlus One today, and it's not just any update. This is the first version of Cyanogen OS with support for Microsoft Cortana baked right in. After Microsoft finally made Cortana official for other phones, then removed the always listening feature, the OnePlus One is rather unique. Read More
It's been a good week for real-time strategy fans on Android. Yesterday a new game from the Anomaly developers was released, SPACECOM, and today gamers without access to NVIDIA-branded hardware can play Z: Steel Soldiers. If you don't recall, this Android port came out back in August of last year - about thirteen years after the original was released on the PC. It's a conventional real-time strategy game about robots killin' robots.
Z: Steel Soldiers can now be installed on any Android device running 2.3.3 or higher (or at least any of them that I've owned), so long as you've got $7 to put in the developers' jar. Read More
There's a new version of Feedly out there, but it looks like a staged rollout (currently a beta channel release). Normally that wouldn't be a huge deal, because it's just a feed reader. However, there's some cool stuff in the v27 update. This one adds Google Now integration, and we've got the APK below.
