It's time to wrap up our NVIDIA Tegra holiday giveaways here at Android Police, and we've saved what we think is the best for last. We really like the One X (color may not be white as shown below, just FYI), and by relation, we also really like the One X+. So we're giving away one of each today, courtesy of NVIDIA, both with a little deal-sweetener right in the box, in the form of a $25 AMEX gift card.
Time for day three of our NVIDIA Tegra holiday giveaways! We'll be holding one more Tegra-themed giveaway tomorrow, and it's a biggie - so be sure to come back check it out. Today's giveaway is - you guessed it - more tablets! We're offering up three Fuhu Nabi 2's (which Cameron heartily recommends) - powered by NVIDIA's Tegra 3 processor.
With CES coming up next month, we're starting to see more and more leaks that will likely materialize on the tradeshow floor. It looks like Chinese site Chip Hell has gotten its hands on one of NVIDIA's little secrets: the Tegra 4, which is codenamed Wayne.
The T4 looks to trump its predecessor in every way - much like the T3 did the T2. It uses the same 4-PLUS-1 core configuration as the Tegra 3, but it does so in a 28nm package - making it not only faster, but more energy efficient, as well.
If you think the term "motion comic" means some barely-animated, poorly-produced DVD tie-in made for a quick buck... well, you're mostly right. But developer Leviathan Games is hoping to buck that trend with their new series of apps, Bane of Yoto. The story is based on the trade paperback of the same name, which has become something of a favorite in horror circles as of late. You can try the first part of the story for free, and the second episode landed yesterday for $3.
Skitch, a popular annotation and sharing app, received an update to version 2.0 today with a redesigned interface, a handful of useful markup tools, and improved Evernote integration.
For those unaware, Skitch is an app that allows users to "communicate visually with friends, co-workers, or anyone." Essentially, it can draw in resources like notes, photos, screenshots, or maps, and then add markup to convey ideas or highlight important aspects of the document for later reference or sharing.
We first caught a glimpse of Sony's upcoming flagship tablet back at the end of July, and now it's official. Dubbed the Xperia Tablet S, it's undeniably the successor to last year's Tablet S. The specs from the aforementioned leak were essentially spot on:
Slim new aluminium body and splash-proof design
9.4” HD display with OptiContrast™ Panel with low-friction coating
NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and Android 4.0.3 operating system
Android version 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
Various experiences with original applications and Sony’s network services
Optimized accessories (sold separately) to enhance experiences in every scene
The Sony Xperia Tablet S will be available beginning in September '12, though pricing information has yet to be announced.
Lenovo, the company best known for making some pretty sweet laptops and violating the seventh commandment, has released the IdeaTab A2109 at Best Buy. This 9" slate packs a 1.2GHz Tegra 3 processor, a 1280x800 display, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. At $300, this tablet is just barely more expensive than the comparable 16GB Nexus 7. For your extra $50 you not only get a bigger screen, but a rear facing camera and HDMI output.
There's no denying that the Tegra 3-powered HTC One X is one of the hottest phones on the market right now, and NVIDIA general manager Mike Rayfield told analysts this afternoon to look for twenty-nine more to be available before the end of the year. We know that LG's Optimus 4x HD will be one of those, but past that, the sky's the limit. We do know, however that about half of the bunch are slated to be sub-$300 (off-contract) devices that will hit the budget crowd; yeah, we're talking about quad-core budget phones.
When we first took a look at Apex launcher, we loved it. One of the better ICS launchers is about to get even better, as the app gets bumped to version 1.2. The update brings, among other things, support for themes and a ludicrously high 10x10 grid of icons on phones. For those of you that like have touch screen phones, but hate how easy it is to tap on things without machine-like precision.
Last week, we told you about NVIDIA's first Player's Choice Awards - a way to let the players speak out about which Tegra Zone games have the best graphics, the best gameplay, and are just the most fun to sit down and play. Not only that, but NVDIA is giving away seven Tegra Zone Gamepacks to seven lucky winners just for voting in the PCA. So, if you haven't done so already, head over to the Tegra Zone and vote for your favorites!
