Verizon’s variant of the LG G Pad 8.3 has started receiving the Android 4.4.2 update, long after the unlocked variants started getting the update. It fixes some of the plaguing issues pertaining to server connectivity as well as media playback through the speakers. This is in addition to the customary Android 4.4.2 related changes such as new notification bar icons, support for cloud printing and the ability to create multiple user accounts. The change will be quite noticeable as the users will be switching from Android 4.2.2....

We’re well aware that Google is looking to launch a new Nexus tablet in the coming weeks. And given the imminent arrival of a successor, it’s not unexpected for the current flagship tablet to slowly go out of rotation. And that seems to have already begun if the U.S. Play Store is any indication. At the moment, the American Play Store only has stocks of the 32GB GSM LTE model, with the AT&T/T-Mobile LTE versions as well as the WiFi only variants listed as “out of inventory”. Is this a sign of the obvious or...

After numerous leaks, the LG G Vista has now officially been released. Starting today, the new device is available online from Verizon for $99.99 on a two-year contract, $19.99 per month on Verizon Edge, or $399 outright. As were rumored, the specs of the LG G Vista are a 5.7–inch qHD display with a resolution of 940×560, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and a 3200 mAh battery.

HTC has scheduled an event for the 19th of August in New York City, hinting at a product launch. Our first guess is that this will be a Nexus tablet as rumors have long suggested, but it is possible that HTC will also show off a Windows Phone handset during the event. Whatever the agenda is for the event, we’ll keep a close eye on it to bring you the latest as it unfolds. The Nexus 8 was originally expected to be unveiled during the Google I/O, but we didn’t get to hear about it. Considering that it’s almost been an...

The Kindle Fire HDX from 2012 is a pretty capable tablet on its own, especially considering the price it is retailing for. The tablet used the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, which was considered the best in the business at the time. A new leaked AnTuTu listing is now indicating that the successor to this popular tablet from last year will sport the new Snapdragon 805 chipset which is only seen on select few devices right now. This will mean that Amazon’s next tablet will be more powerful than any of the current crop of Android...

NVIDIA’s Shield Tablet has begun shipping to customers today after going up for pre order last week. So if you’re one of those customers who pre ordered the device early, the tablet should be on its way. The Shield Tablet is being considered a successor to the Shield handheld console which launched last year, although both have different form factors. However, the idea remains the same – to provide a powerful gaming oriented device with top of the line hardware. The Shield Tablet can also be bundled with a gaming controller...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is now being sold for a decent price over at Best Buy. The tablet usually retails for $399.99 but can now be yours for just $279.99. This is a pretty decent deal on a tablet which packs a 2K resolution display and has a pretty capable specs sheet as well. We’re not certain if this is a limited period promotion or a long term discount, but it will certainly attract potential customers. To refresh your memory, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 sports a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, a 1.9 GHz octa core Exynos...

I remember it as if it were yesterday. Perhaps anticipating the imminent fall of netbooks, Google envisioned a different type of inexpensive, compact laptops called Chromebooks in 2011. Highly reliant on the web, these would be initially berated and laughed out of the then competitive PC stage. But it’s not like Big G to give up a fight so easily, and despite the continuous dip in popularity of traditional computers and the rise of the tablet, Chromebooks stuck around, to the utter dismay of the class’ many critics. Acer and Samsung,...
