We've been hearing about the Sony Nozomi for a few weeks now, and Sony just officially unveiled the device at CES. it will be known simply as the Xperia S, and shares most of the same guts as the Xperia Ion (announced earlier today), including a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 12MP Exmor R camera, NFC, and Android 2.3.x (will be upgraded to ICS). Unlike the Ion, however, the Xperia S has a smaller 4.3-inch display, though it's still rocking a 1280x720 resolution.
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang outed a new 7-inch Tegra 3 ICS tablet today for a revolutionary price - $249. While we know very little about the tablet right this moment, we do know that it was developed by ASUS and it's not the Eee Pad MeMo ME171 that was unveiled earlier today.
Apparently this device is still in its early days, as it still doesn't even have a name.
Here's a bit of news from the Nvidia's CES Press Conference. Jen-Hsun Huang, the CEO of Nvidia, announced that the Asus Transformer Prime is getting its Ice Cream Sandwich update today (January 9th, for those of you in the future).
The Transformer Prime sports an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, so Huang should have inner knowledge of the TPrime's update schedule.
Update: Due to a PR error, there was a bunch of confusion about the two 7" tablets unveiled by ASUS today. We've sorted it all out:
- The Eee Pad MeMO ME370T is powered by Tegra 3 - that's the one that was just announced by NVIDIA for $249.
Yes, that's right - at just half an inch thick, the Droid 4 is the world's thinnest 4G LTE QWERTY Smartphone. Not only is it ridiculously thin (for a slider), but it also packs some pretty raw power under it's hood. Check out what it has to offer:
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB of RAM
- Android 2.3.5 (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable)
- 4-Inch "scratch-and-scrape resistant" display
- 16GB internal memory, Up To 32 GB microSD card supported
- Full five-row QWERTY
- 8MP rear shooter with 1080p HD Video Capture
- 4G LTE Capable (duh)
AT&T embraced the go big or go home motto like a boss today at CES -- it announced six new Android devices. Three premium phones, two budget phones, and a budget tablet. Not only that, but every single one of these new devices will run on its 4G LTE network. Let's take a look at what we know so far, and we'll update as more info shows up.
The tablet flood continues, the latest from Sammy is the Galaxy Tab 7.7 for Verizon. This little guy hopes to stand out from the crowd with the largest OLED display Samsung has ever put on a tablet: a 7.7 inch, Super AMOLED Plus Display.
The "Plus" on the end of "Super AMOLED Plus" means "not pentile," so you're even getting the full compliment of subpixels. It looks like this:
Now for the bad news, it's only Android 3.2, and it's got Touchwiz, and lots of crapware.
Looks like last week's leaked Sprint ad for the Galaxy Nexus was right on the money - The Now Network just officially announced the GN as one of its first 4G LTE devices, alongside the LG Viper.
Even though Sprint has decided to make the GN official, there is still one immediate question looming about: what is the clock speed? Truth be known - we still don't know. The press release is void of any hardware specs, so we'll just have to wait and see if the processor is running at a full 1.5GHz as previously rumored.
We're onto the second day of official pre-CES activities here in Las Vegas, and this morning we got to spend some time with Huawei's newest smartphone - the Ascend P1 S. While the vast majority of information about the device was leaked sometime last night, we had a chance to take some video of the Ice Cream Sandwich device and share a few insights about it, as well as obtain some relevant info on pricing and availability.
Hot on the heels of the unveiling of Fujitsu's ES IS12F, the world's thinnest smartphone, a leaflet circulating at CES today indicates that Fujitsu has something even more awesome in the works. It would seem that Fujitsu is on the brink of revealing a (yet unnamed) smartphone that packs not only Ice Cream Sandwich, but a quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
Little else is known about the mystery device, but judging from the specs we have so far, this phone sounds like a dream machine.
