A Year Late And A Dollar Short: AT&T Will Release The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini On September 27th For $.99

Those of you looking for a cheap, small phone running Android will have one more option on AT&T starting later this month. The company issued a press release this morning finally announcing the release date for the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini. That's Samsung's cheaper, smaller version of the GSIII which actually has very little in common with the GSIII in terms of hardware. It will launch on AT&T on September 27th for $.99 on a two-year contract.

NVIDIA Announces The Evolution Of The Kai Platform: Say Hello To 'Tegra Note'

Last year, NVIDIA announced a then-groundbreaking tablet design called Kai. It was essentially a reference – a blueprint, if you will – for manufacturers to design and build extremely affordable tablets. The plan was clearly laid out, but the platform itself was incredibly flexible so the manufacturing costs and retail pricing could fluctuate as much as the design of the tablets themselves.

Verizon Expects New Nexus 7 To Get Certified For Its LTE Network At Some Point, No Timeframe Just Yet

Earlier today we reported that Verizon is currently denying owners of the Nexus 7 2013 LTE model the ability to access new data lines on the company's network. We reached out to a Verizon representative for comment, and here's what we got back:

Verizon Won't Activate New LTE SIM Cards For The Nexus 7 LTE: 'Not All LTE Tablets Are Created Equal'

Update: Verizon has responded to our inquiry about the Nexus 7 LTE registration issues. A company representative said that the Nexus 7 LTE would be certified for the Verizon network at some point.

That isn't much to go on, but it's certainly promising - it implies that Verizon is at least aware of the problem and taking steps towards upgrading the company's infrastructure to compensate. Of course, it could take any amount of time for Verizon to certify a new, unlocked device for their network (and Verizon isn't exactly known for speedy response when it comes to devices and software).

Google Starts Selling Devices On Italian Play Store For The First Time, Starting With All Flavors Of 2013 Nexus 7

Earlier today, Google announced that the new LTE Nexus 7 was now available for purchase from the Play Stores in 9 countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, UK, Japan, Korea and U.S. For some reason, the company has neglected to mention Italy, which just got the Devices (Dispositivi) section added to the Play Store for the first time ever.

The only devices available at the moment are all three flavors of the Nexus 7:

The Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 are nowhere to be found, which isn't too surprising considering they're now almost a year old.

Nexus 7 LTE Goes Live On The Play Store In 10 Countries

[Update: Winners!] International Giveaway: Win One Of Two 32GB 2013 Nexus 7s From TabletRocket And Android Police

 

It's pretty safe to assume that most people either have, or want, a tablet. For those who are in the market though, trying to find the perfect slate can be a daunting task. With all of the options, even the savviest consumers can easily get overwhelmed. Not to mention how much research is involved in making an educated purchase decision – I will personally sometimes spend weeks researching and comparing products before making a major purchase.

Asus Reveals Updated PadFone Infinity – Snapdragon 800, 5/10.1-Inch 1080p Screen, MicroSD Slot, And Android 4.2

It has only been a few months since Asus announced the original PadFone Infinity, but the new version of the phone-tablet hybrid was just outed in Taiwan. This is a spec bump on the last PadFone, which moves from Snapdragon 600 to 800, but that's not all.
