[IFA 2013] Hands-On With The LG G Pad 8.3 (Video)

We're back with another hands-on here at IFA in Berlin, this time LG's upcoming G Pad 8.3. This is LG's first tablet since the somewhat-disastrous G Slate, and it's a far more conservative approach to the tablet model. LG's pretty much stuffing the old Optimus G Pro's guts inside an 8.3" tablet's body, albeit with the G2's newer software.

The G Pad 8.3 has a Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8.3" 1920x1200 display, 16GB of internal storage, front and rear cameras, a 4600mAh battery, and a microSD card slot.

MLB At Bat App Update Resolves Live Video Issues On Android 4.3

Upgrading to a new version of Android is always nice, but Nexus users (and just lately, Google Play Edition users) tend to become unwitting beta testers for a lot of apps. Case in point: MLB At Bat, the official news, scores, and video app for Major League Baseball's online subscription service. It didn't work for Android 4.3 users ever since the new version of Android launched in July, but according to the latest changelog, the updated app should be streaming video to everyone now.

Xiaomi Debuts The MI3: Snapdragon 800 And Tegra 4 Models Starting At $327 (No, You Can't Buy One Outside China)

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has been getting a lot of ink as of late, but not for their hardware: former Googler Hugo Barra is now their Vice President of Global. The first phone to launch after Barra joined the company is the new flagship MI3, and it is a doozie. The device crams some of the best hardware available into a phone, but it's probably not leaving China any time soon.

[IFA 2013] Hands-On With The Sony Xperia Z1 (Video)

Sony's oft-leaked Xperia Z1 finally made its official debut at IFA in Berlin yesterday, and I had a chance to take a few minutes and look at the company's latest smartphone creation. The Z1 has opted to keep the same basic dimensions of the Xperia Z with its 5" 1080p LCD, enclosed in an aluminum chassis sandwiched between two glass plates. As such, holding the Z1 is very reminiscent of the Z - lots of glass, and an extremely solid, premium feel.
