[Deal Alert] Acer Iconia Tab A700 On Sale For Just $430, Full HD Screen And Tegra 3 In Tow

The Acer Iconia A700 may offer mediocre performance when compared to the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700), but it's also normally $50 cheaper than the TF700 - to those on a budget, that may be a worthy sacrifice. Perhaps doubly so now that it's on sale for just $430 on Amazon (compared to $500 for the TF700) - certainly an impressively low price for a 10" 1920x1200 tablet powered by a Tegra 3 CPU.

[New Game] Puddle THD launches On The Play Store With Very Pretty Physics For Tegra 3 Devices

Nvidia, in its ongoing quest to convince everyone to buy Tegra 3 devices, demoed several very impressive-looking games a few weeks ago. One of them was Puddle THD, and it's now available in the Play Store in both lite and paid versions.

In Puddle THD, you use the accelerometer to control the flow of water (and eventually other fluids) through a maze of pipes and troughs to reach the goal.

Heroes Call THD Lands In Play Store, Lets You Loot Dungeons And Fight Monsters For Free

You may remember the name Heroes Call from E3, when NVIDIA touted it as one of the major upcoming games that would sport customizations to take full advantage of their Tegra chip. The Tegra HD (THD) version of the game was released last night at the low, low price of free. Thankfully, this might just be one of those rare cases in which "free" gets you quite a lot.

Free to play Action RPG.

Beats Me: Why HTC's "Amazing Sound" On The International One X Isn't Amazing At All - Even By The Numbers

HTC's marketing of Beats Audio on its One Series handsets has rapidly become a joke among critics and internet commentators alike. And that's probably putting it nicely. The fact that the entirety of the Beats "enhancements" found on aforementioned phones has been zipped up and packaged to flash on any Android 2.3+ handset has, at least in the collective minds of the internet, exposed the Beats partnership for what it is: equalization software and a fancy logo.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (TF700 Wi-Fi) Review: At The Crossroads Of Pixels And Power

Fun fact: a 1080p display packs 2,073,600 pixels. The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity (or TF700)? 2,304,000 - or 230,400 more. Most 1080p HDTVs are somewhere around 40-60 inches. The TF700 checks in at just 10. Compared to a 40" HDTV, that's 111% of the pixels in a package that's 6.25% of the size.

The screen may be the real headline feature with the Infinity, but it's not the only one worthy of note.

[Editorial] NVIDIA's Kai Platform Could Single-Handedly Revolutionize The Android Tablet Market - Here's Why

The name Kai seemingly popped out of nowhere during NVIDIA's meeting of stockholders last month. Since then, we've heard it many times - but I still don't think it's getting the attention it deserves. Its importance, and what it means for the future of Android tablets, is being greatly understated across the board. I believe that Kai is going to be revolutionary for Android tablets - here's why.

The Budget Powerhouse Is Upon Us

We don't often use the words budget and powerhouse together in the same sentence.

NVIDIA Shows Off Five New Tegra 3 Games At E3: Dead Trigger, Puddle THD, Demons' Score THD, Bounty Arms, And Heroes Call

NVIDIA has been working hard to bring a console-like gaming experience to portable device that feature the Tegra 3 superchip. Shadowgun was the first title to really break that barrier, and the experience has only gotten better since then. Games like Dark Meadow and Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II now set the standard - and that's a high bar to reach in the mobile space.

Today, though, NVIDIA has taken the wraps off of five all-new Tegra Zone games designed specifically for the 4-plus-1 core Tegra 3 processor: Dead Trigger, Puddle THD, Demons' Score THD, Bounty Arms, and Heroes Call.

NVIDIA's Kai Platform Is For More Than Just A Single Tablet Design

 

By now, you've probably heard about NVIDIA's Kai platform. However, it hasn't been entirely clear what Kai actually is. Is it a tablet? Or a specific chipset? If so, can it be used in other devices? NVIDIA recently posted on its blog more details about Kai that answers those very questions, as well as touches on the possibilities of where Kai can be used.

First off, Kai is neither a specific piece of hardware, nor is it a software configuration.

Google I/O is coming and it's time to get excited! It's like Christmas in June! It will be here in just a few short agonizing weeks - and we need to prepare.

NVIDIA: Expect 30 Tegra 3 Phones By The End Of 2012, Integrated LTE Modems In Early 2013

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.
