The Charlotte hexapod robot

There are robots that walk around like spiders, there are robots that avoid objects, and there are robots that talk, but what about a robot spider that talks while avoiding objects? Hobbyist Kevin Ochs’ creation, Charlotte, is just that. Charlotte is a hexapod robot with a talking head that lets it narrate its progress as it avoids collisions.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs (and other features) of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and Nexus 7

Samsung was the first Android phone maker to take a stab at tablets. Released in 2010, the Galaxy Tab was a 7-inch slate that cost more than the bigger and better iPad. But Samsung kept chipping away, making tablets in all shapes and sizes, and is now gaining on Apple’s shrinking lead. How does Samsung’s latest – the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 – compare to the Google/Asus Nexus 7?  Read More

IDC released its latest global tablet market share numbers, and Samsung is looking good

For a while, it looked like Apple was going to utterly dominate the tablet market forever. Xooms, Xyboards, and Transformers came and went – accomplishing little more than building the world’s biggest collection of store shelf dust. But today Android slates have grown in quality and quantity, while shrinking in screen size and price. In the first quarter of 2013, they continued to eat into the iPad’s market share.  Read More

Google and Asus are reportedly prepping the Nexus 7's sequel for a July release

Two years ago, the iPad was untouchable at the top of the tablet market. Apple still sells the most tablets, but several rival slates have made serious inroads.

And today we have some new details on the second-generation Nexus 7.  Read More

A DisplaySearch analyst says the supply chain could be pointing to high-res iPad mini and ...

In the past year, both large tablets and 5-inch smartphones have shifted to razor-sharp, high-resolution displays. Smaller tablets, however, have yet to make that leap. According to an analyst who’s been keeping tabs on the supply chain, that could soon change – with both the iPad mini and Nexus 7 switching to high-res “Retina” displays.  Read More

ASUS has announced the PadFone Infinity and Fonepad at MWC in Barcelona, Spain

Now the company has chosen to launch the latest addition to the PadFone line at Mobile World Congress. The LTE-capable PadFone Infinity handset offers users up to 19 hours of 3G talk time, that gets increased to 40 hours when docked in its Infinity Station. The Spanish spotlight is also shining on a new 7-inch phablet called the Fonepad.  Read More

We compare the specs - and other features - of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and Google/Asus...

After several years of the 9.7-inch iPad dominating tablet sales, we’ve seen a shift. Customers are gravitating more toward smaller (and cheaper) 7 to 8-inch slates. Two of today’s top choices in that bracket are the Google/Asus Nexus 7 and Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 8.0. Read on, as we compare the specs – and other features – of these two mini tablets.  Read More

The ASUS WL-330NUL Pocket Router

ASUS has announced the forthcoming release of what is being hailed as the smallest router produced to date. The WL-330NUL Pocket Router is just a bit longer than an AA-sized battery, includes an integrated USB 2.0 connector and cable that fold into the side of the body, and offers both wired and wireless connectivity for your notebooks, tablets and smartphones.  Read More

The second Nexus 7 is rumored to have thinner side bezels, and a sharper display

If you're shopping for a budget tablet, you can do much worse than the Nexus 7. It's a quad-core workhorse, you can easily hold it in one hand, and its US$200 price is right. But there's always room for improvement. Though the Nexus 7's display is sharper than those of rival tablets, it isn't quite "Retina." That may soon change, with reports that Google and Asus are working on a 1080p follow-up.  Read More
