ASUS’ Fonepad has been making its way around the world with a 1.2GHz Intel Atom Z2420 processor and 16GB of built-in storage, but apparently there’s a need for covering one’s face with a beefier version. Announced in Taiwan earlier today, the 7-inch tabletphone will be offered with a faster 1.6GHz Z2460 plus 32GB of memory (with micro-SD expansion as before). This new model will retail for NT$ 10,900 locally, which works out to be about US$ 360; whereas the original model will still be available for NT$ 8,990 or about US$ 300 (which is, by the way, a tad more expensive than the UK price). We’ll let you know when ASUS comes back with more information regarding availability in other regions.

We’ve never understood why Panasonic chose to brand its top-line tablet as the Toughbook H2, but given the hairy-chested types who build and use the gear, we’re not gonna challenge ‘em. The company hasn’t messed too much with the Windows 7 slate, except pushing the top chip to a 2.8GHz Intel Core i5-3427U and to swap out the 320GB 7,200RPM shock-mounted HDD for a 500GB model. Panasonic has also tweaked the hardware’s polycarbonate-encased magnesium alloy chassis, with MIL-STD-810G1 ensuring that the gear will survive drops from six-feet, as well as IP651 weather-proofing. The 3.5-pound unit also sees its battery life pushed to seven hours and also gains boosted WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1+EDR connectivity. Once you’ve selected a unit, there’s a hefty list of possible add-ons, including barcode scanners, smart card readers, Gobi-running 3G, LTE and GPS options. There’s even a model that meets MIL-STD-461F standards for electromagnetic protection — useful if your day job involves battling superheroes. The standard unit will set you back $ 3,349 and comes with a three-year international warranty, so you’d better get buttering-up your procurement manager now.

Amid the bevy of phones outed in NTT DoCoMo’s summer lineup, the Japanese carrier snuck in a tablet: Sharp’s Aquos Pad SH-08E. A 7-inch 1,920 x 1,200 IGZO display dominates the front of the Android 4.2 device, while a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor and a 4,200mAh battery are tucked inside. When it comes to imaging, the slab totes an 8.1-megapixel shooter on its rear, and wears a 2.1-megapixel cam on the front. The hardware’s also been kitted out with WiFi, NFC and TV tuning capabilities, along with waterproofing and dustproofing, to boot. As the slate’s outfitted to work with DoCoMo’s Xi LTE network, it’s capable of sucking down 100Mbps and uploading at 37.5Mbps. There’s no word on how much it’ll empty wallets, but it’s penciled in to be available in Japan by the end of July.

It looks like the coming flagship phone from Samsung, the Galaxy S4 will come with different processors, an Exynos 5 OCTA processor for Europe, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 for the US. I wonder why Samsung are doing this? Is it because different needs because of LTE antennas or something? They did the same with Samsung Galaxy S3, so I wonder why? I’ve heard rumors about the Exynos 5 Octa processor having heating issues though, so if Samsung plans to use it for Europe, then I really hope they have fixed that. Otherwise I rather want it to have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU… March 14 we will know more. It will be a ver exciting event! I am sure of that.

Next-Gen Tegra 4 Mobile Processor Details Leaks, Brings 6X Graphics Power Of Tegra 3 With Less Power Draw
Nvidia ’ s next-generation mobile processor can be a 72-core graphics powerhouse, according to leaded specs supposedly uncovered by Chinese website Chiphell. The specifications for the Tegra 4 processor, codenamed Wayne (a designation we ’ ve heard prior to), detail a 4-plus-1 battery conserving quad-core design like that made use of in the current Tegra 3 processors. It must assist Android devices get even better at gaming and media applications, while conserving battery life.
The design is based on a 28nm production process, which is more power effective than the 40nm design made use of in the current Tegra 3, and on par with Qualcomm ’ s S4 mobile processors. Nvidia is hanging its hat on the upcoming Tegra ’ s graphics efficiency, nonetheless: it boasts 6 times the graphics processing capacities of the Tegra 3, and 20 times the strength of the Tegra 2. If you ’ re a next-gen gaming platform like the Ouya, or any mobile phone or tablet-maker attempting to usurp systems as a sensible games alternative, then that ’ s a very appealing proposal.
Other details apparently involving the Tegra 4 according to the crack are the ability to support video clip playback at 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, USB 3.0 support and additionally high-speed HDMI connections. The Nvidia design might help the business obtain an edge over Qualcomm ’ s S4, which powers an excellent percentage of existing Android OEM crown jewel devices. The Tegra 3 also isn ’ t particularly friendly with LTE-capable gadgets, which is an expanding issue, and although the dripped information don ’ t reference anything about LTE support, it ’ s hard to picture Nvidia developing a next-gen mobile processor without tackling that. Wayne has apparently been in development a minimum of since February, and some speculated it would be arriving quickly even then, so see this area for any sort of official information.

ASUS has actually been a sturdy force in the tablet game even prior to it set a brand-new price-to-quality standard with Google’s Nexus 7. It looks like the firm could be tightening up the spending plan screw even further, if some recent GLBenchmarks are to be believed. The details are thin, but describe a product with design number ME172V (which follows from its pre-Nexus smaller sized tablet line), that runs Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, sports a 1,024 x 552 (likely 1,024 x 600) resolution powered by a Mali 400 GPU and 1GHz chip. There’s no indicator on the number of cores, or, well, much else for that matter. Numerous rumors are keen to recommend there ‘d be support for microSD, which if real, would make it extremely unlikely to be a Nexus. But a spending plan tablet by the same maker, is most likely enough for lots of people all the exact same.

Never one to stop unfurling new mobile phones, Huawei’s simply detailed yet another high-end Android device. The Honor 2 packs the company’s in-house K3V2 1.4 GHz quad-core chip, up from the single-core located in the initial, alongside 2GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage space. Around the back, there’s the BSI 8-megapixel camera sensor, capable of broken tries and complete 1080p video clip capture, while Huawei has actually also included a microSD slot for storage expansion. With a 4.5-inch 1,280 x 720 show, there’s significant pixel bump up from the 245 pixels per inch discovered on the first Honor– in fact we have a Retina display-matching 326ppi. The Chinese phone maker is also talking up its claims of 72 hours of standby time, which is something we ‘d definitely like to attempt out when evaluation samples at some point appear. Pre-orders will begin in China later on this week, with the Honor 2 priced up at 1,888 yen– simply over $ 300.

It’s hard not to be impressed by the A6 engine in the new iPhone 5, since it’s now proven to deliver a double-shot of great performance and class-leading battery life. But silicon stories like that don’t happen over night or even over the course of a year — in fact, analyst Linley Gwennap has traced the origins of the A6 all the way back to 2008, when Steve Jobs purchased processor design company P.A. Semi and set one of its teams to work on creating something “insanely great” for mobile devices.
Although Apple is steadfastly secretive about its components, Gwennap’s history of the A6 (linked below) is both plausible and a straight-up good read for anyone interested in the more fundamental aspects of their gadgets. Whereas the A5 processor stuck closely to ARM’s Cortex-A9 design, Gwennap is convinced — just like Anandtech is –that the A6 treads a very different path: it’s still based on ARM’s architecture and it’s likely fabricated by Samsung using a cutting-edge 32nm process, but it’s an in-house vision of what a mobile chip should be. It’s the culmination of four years of hard work and perhaps half a billion dollars of investment.
That’s not to say it’s the most powerful chip out there, or even the chip most tailored to its host device — after all, Samsung also designs great chips for some of its own smartphones. Indeed, Gwennap says that the A6 is probably a dual-core processor that is no more complex than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 (let alone the S4 Pro) or the forthcoming generation of Cortex-A15 chips, while its clock speed could be as low as 1.2GHz — versus a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos in the Note II and even a 2GHz Intel chip in Motorola’s new RAZR i. However, Gwennap predicted that even if the A6 falls short of its rivals “in raw CPU performance,” it’d make up for it in terms of low power consumption — which is precisely what we’ve confirmed in our review.
Sorry Nokia, consider your thunder stolen. It hasn’t yet made an appearance at Samsung’s big IFA press conference inside the Berlin Tempodrom, but Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8 device has just been made official thanks to a post on Microsoft’s Windows Phone Blog.
That device in question is the ATIV (Ah-TEEV, not EYY-tiv) S, a rather handsome new handset that sports a (sadly unspecified) 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.9-megapixel front-facing counterpart to boot.
Update (5:02PM ET): Neither Samsung nor Microsoft dug into what kind of processor the ATIV S has under the hood, but Qualcomm confirmed to PC Magazine that it’s an MSM8260A. That’s the same chipset seen in the U.S. variants of the HTC One X and Galaxy S III so the ATIV won’t leave you wanting for horsepower, but it means LTE is definitely off the table.
The spec sheet may not be the most riveting you’ll ever see — Windows Phone has never really required bleeding edge hardware — but the move puts the pressure on Nokia to unveil something tremendous next week.
The ATIV S features a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display swathed in Gorilla Glass, which may make it a bit of a handful (its size puts it right up there in Galaxy S III territory) — but there’s little question that Samsung knows how to make a big device feel smaller than it actually is. The fact that the ATIV S squeezes all that into a brushed aluminum 8.7mm thick chassis (the Galaxy S III is only just a hair thinner at 8.6mm) certainly doesn’t hurt. What really lends the ATIV some star power is that it’s the world’s first Windows Phone 8 device, though it may be a while before the rest of us get to see how well the software complements the hardware.
Users will be able to pick up a 16 or 32GB model at some point in the near future — no one has mentioned availability yet — but they can rest easy knowing that at long last they’ll be able to throw a microSD card into their Windows Phone.
