It’s all (relatively) quiet on the Nexus release front, and with a measly few days left until the Google I/O 2015 opener, that can only mean one thing. Whatever Big G has planned for the stock Android-running hardware program, we won’t be able to check out any N5, N6 or N9 sequels in the flesh just yet. Of course, it makes perfect sense, if you think about it. It’s simply way too early for “pure Google” phablet or tablet reboots, not to mention the technology isn’t really there for radical, palpable improvements. Snapdragon...

Samsung’s Galaxy Note Pro and Tab Pro series have always catered to the high end productivity oriented markets. It seems like the company is ready to push the envelope this year with a potential successor leaking out today. This mystery Samsung tablet is shown to be running on Intel’s Z8500 quad core SoC with a clock speed of 2.24 GHz. With a single core score of 1005 and a multi-core score of 3426, the ‘Samsung Chopin’ tablet is certainly one of the most powerful tablets to come out of the company’s sheds.   Obviously,...

LG and AT&T have jointly released the G Pad F tablet, which is one of the first in the market to come with a full sized USB port, letting you transfer data between an external device and the tablet seamlessly. You can get the tablet from AT&T under its $0 down payment plan where you will have to shell out $12.50 per month for a period of 20 months, translating to a price of $250. If you’re looking to get the device on contract though, you will only have to shell out $149.99 up front. The tablet will be available for purchase...

The uniquely designed Dell Venue 8 7000 tablet was launched back in January this year. The tablet had a price tag of $399.99, which in itself was a pretty good deal given the hardware on offer. You can now get the tablet for just $349.99, courtesy of a deal from eBay/Best Buy. This is a brand new unit that’s being offered by the retailer, so you will get a completely stock device. To refresh your memory a little, the tablet comes with a 8.4 inch 2560 x 1600 resolution display, a unique 3D camera arrangement on the back along with...

A recent rumor indicated that HTC was looking to launch a budget tablet in the markets soon. According to new reports, this tablet will sport a 7 inch display, which was already expected. It is also being said that HTC will have a dual SIM card slot on the tablet, possibly to appease the Asian markets. Other rumored features of the tablet include a 1.2 GHz quad core processor and a paltry 1GB of RAM accompanied by 16GB of internal storage. It’s clear from this leak that the tablet will not be topping the benchmarking charts as far...

America’s largest carrier Verizon has now begun the rollout of Android 5.0 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The software version changes to T807VVRU1BOD2 post the update, so make a note of that if you’re interested. The tablet is getting the Android 5.0.2 update and not Android 5.1 as you’re probably hoping. This comes after the T-Mobile and AT&T models of the tablet started receiving the update not too long ago. The WiFi models are also running Android 5.0.2 at this point, so Verizon is most likely the last carrier...

Google prioritizes update rollouts to its Nexus devices first as we all know. And if you own a Nexus 4, Nexus 5 or the LTE Nexus 9, you should be expecting to receive the Android 5.1.1 update sometime soon. However, if you haven’t seen the update on your device yet, Google has now made it that much easier for you to get it, thanks to dedicated OTA update links. You can sideload these files using the ADB tool and get your device on Android 5.1.1. Surprisingly, Google is yet to update the factory images list, so if you want to get...

You can never really know when (or where) lightning will strike next, so it’s wise to always be prepared. It’s the same with gadget deals and promotions, which sometimes come in unstoppable tsunamis, one after the other, then cool down for weeks in a row, then relentlessly proceed from where they left off. Bottom line, it’s been a while since we last rounded up Amazon’s best Android bargains, but the recent calm could have only anticipated the perfect storm of smartphones, tablets, wearables and mobile accessories discounts: Smartphones   BLU...
