Google Confirms an ASUS-Manufactured Google TV Will Be Unveiled at CES

Google TV Box

Google has confirmed that ASUS will be manufacturing a Google TV and will be unveiling the product at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vega, Nevada, this year. Google and ASUS have not announced the name of the device yet, but it could be dubbed the “Qube,” if it happens to be the Google TV dongle that recently made its way through the FCC. Additionally, Google has also recently announced they they are expecting all-new Google TV products from a few familiar Chinese manufactures like LG, Vizo, Sony and a few others.

CES this year is beginning to look extremely promising. While we not be seeing a whole lot in smartphone news, it’s always outstanding seeing companies all over their world show off their new products. I’m personally excited to see what Corning will be doing with Gorilla Glass 3 and what the Pebble smartwatch is all about!

Do you have any expectation for CES this year? Is there a particular area of technology that you will be looking out for? Make sure to let us know in the comments section below! This is going to be an exciting year, as CES and the MWC is going to bringing some great surprises to the table!

Sprint Will Begin Pay As You Go Service On January 25th, But Standard Sprint Phones Aren’t Invited To The Party [Update: Sprint Confirms]

GalaxyVictory4GLTEIf you want to use Sprint’s network without signing a contract, there are a lot of options out there, including its subsidiary Boost Mobile, the American MVNO Virgin, and hybrid provider Republic Wireless, among others. Sprint hopes that there are at least some prepaid customers left out there, because starting on January 25th, it will be offering its service in contract-free flavors.

Update: Sprint confirmed the new service to Fierce Wireless and provided some additional details. There will be no limits on data or bandwidth throttling, and LTE service will in fact be enabled on the Galaxy Victory.

wm_sayg

There are only two smartphones that will be available at the beginning of Sprint As You Go: LG’s somewhat misnamed Optimus Elite, and the Samsung Victory, conspicuously absent of the “4G LTE” branding that’s present on Sprint’s current Galaxy model.

Republic Wireless Confirms That It Doesn’t Look Too Kindly Upon Customers That Root Devices

 

Republic Wireless may be on its way to being a revolutionary wireless provider, however in order to be a revolutionary wireless provider— it has to ensure that its offers a topnotch service to its customers free of any type of shenanigans or tomfoolery. This means keeping its various devices offered to its customers free of tools like rooting, which may enhance a customer’s service at the expense of Republic Wireless’s  philosophy. With this in mind, there has been a recent rise in customers’ interest in rooting their devices and Republic Wireless decided to take some time and share its position on not just rooting, but any sort of unauthorized device customization:

 

“We’ve seen a flurry of questions and comments recently, and we wanted to provide some answers and a bit of context. The burning question these days is whether or not it’s ok to root your phone. The short answer is no. You agreed to the Terms of Service when you joined republic, and if you don’t follow the Terms, we can terminate your service at any time”.

 

 

Republic Wireless takes time to expand on its position against rooting by sharing some reasons for its stance against rooting. The first is the fact that it needs to have the ability to provide quality service to all customers, but this can’t be done if some are operating devices with capabilities beyond their original intended use– which causes a conflict of interest, of sorts. Another reason is the simple fact that when devices are rooted, they can’t provide a topnotch level of customer support, unlike other wireless providers’. The final reason is perhaps the most significant reason as Republic Wireless points out that its service is part of a community effort— not just a service targeted towards one or a few individuals:

 

“Lastly, when you modify your phone or service, you’re missing the point of what we’re trying to do. We’ve worked hard to protect the idea that we all work together and that we can share responsibility here. It means doing the right thing for everyone involved–not just what you want to do”.

 

On the surface, you’d think that Republic Wireless is a bit of a Debbie Downer when it comes to rooting— but after you see it lay out its points (which all seem to be valid), you can kind of understand where it’s coming from and why it wants to protect its service so badly. Here’s hoping that Republic Wireless does find some sort of compromise at some point in the near future— we all know that a few power users will end up giving root to Republic Wireless phones on way or another.

EE Confirms It Will Carry The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE And Nexus 7 Tablets

 

What do you do if you’re EE and have an ever-growing 4G LTE network to tout? You announce the availability of some new devices of course. EE has gone ahead and announced its plans to sell the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE and a Nexus 7 + 4G Mifi bundle. While the prices aren’t exactly competitive, EE has different price options & data bundles for both devices:

 

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE

  • £25.99 monthly and £249.99 upfront for 3GB
  • £30.99 monthly and £199.99 upfront for 5GB
  • £35.99 and £99.99 upfront for 8GB

 

Nexus 7 (likely the Wifi-only version) + Huawei E589 LTE Mifi

  • £25.99 monthly and £49.99 upfront for 3GB
  • £30.99 monthly and £29.99 upfront for 5GB
  • £35.99 monthly and £25.99 upfront for 8GB

Keep in mind that should any prospective customer go for either device, they will be locked into a 2-year contract and all of those pounds would indeed add up in the long run. Still— EE’s announcement is rather encouraging as it shows that the wireless carrier is really committed to giving its super-fast 4G network even more exposure.

Google Play Redeem Page Now Live In The UK, Gift Cards May Not Be Far Behind

gift-card-thumb People in the UK have long been able to purchase apps and other goodies from the Google Play store using traditional methods, but as of yet there hasn’t been an option to buy gift cards for redemption online like you can with other stores.

Fortunately, it looks like that could soon be changing; the Google Play redeem page now allows you to enter a redemption code from a gift card, although you can’t actually buy the cards in shops yet. This could be an indication that gift cards are on their way, but we can’t confirm this or speculate about a time frame just yet.

Sony Launches Cinemagram Competitor Motiongraph – Quickly, Easily Create Creepily Awesome Animated Photos

unnamed

Sony Digital Network Applications (Sony DNA) today announced Motiongraph – an app that aims to make the creation of cinemagraphs fast and easy for Android users. A cinemagraph, for those who don’t know, is a still image with one or two minor elements animated (you can see some great examples here). They’re a fascinating medium that can only be achieved digitally, and which have an eerie yet fascinating aesthetic.

Sony’s app looks to give users more consistent and controlled results with a simple “rubbing” interface in which areas to be animated are identified by simply highlighting them with your finger.

Huawei Confirms It Is Working On A 6.1-Inch Galaxy Note Competitor

 

In some not-so-surprising news, Huawei has finally come out and confirmed it is indeed working on a Samsung Galaxy Note II competitor. While speaking on the Chinese social networking page Weibo (China’s equivalent to Twitter), Huawei Senior VP Yu Chengdong  took some time to tout up his company’s next beast of a smartphone. The device (which is speculated to be the Ascend Mate) will have a 6.1-inch full HD 1080p display and feature an in-house 1.8GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM– all the while having a “cooler” design than the current Galaxy Note II.

Unfortunately, the Huawei executive decided to leave the Android world collectively guessing and speculating what else could be found in the unique device, but at least we won’t have to wait long. The device is expected to be formally revealed at CES 2013 in January— which is only a month away.

Try to contain your excitement in the meantime folks.

Google Employee Confirms Key Lime Pie for Next Android OS with Evolution Drawing

The has been a lot of debate on what Google was planning on naming the next baby to come out of Mountain View. “K” is the next letter in the alphabet, and we all started thinking of what delicious desserts start with K. Very limited amount of choices. Kettle corn, Kahlua cake, and of course, Key Lime Pie. KLP seems to be what everyone is settling on, but I personally was hoping for something a little better. I can settle with KPL, simply because of the three letter acronym that rolls off the tongue like ICS did. Now it seems that a Google employee might have just outed that pie with lime and keys.

The image above shows our beloved Andy snacking on each dessert that Android has been a part of. A slice of key lime pie shows up at the end, thereby confirming that KLP will in fact be the next OS name. The drawing is by Manu Cornet, a googler and cartoonist, and I actually really like this drawing. I have had this idea of doing a ManDroid tribute to Android and eat each and every one of the desserts Android has been. Odds are, I will probably get sick to my stomach, but that just has the making of a good video. Let us know what you guys think.

Nexus 4 Shipping Emails Being Sent En Masse, Shipments Going Out "This Week"

camera

Google is sending out emails to many of those who ordered Nexus 4′s during the first day of availability, and were subsequently told they’d be waiting up to three weeks to get their phones. We’re now hearing from numerous tipsters that Google is sending out an email indicating those orders will ship this week. Members of our team have received the email, as well. Here it is:

Your Nexus 4 order is scheduled to ship this week. We’ll send you a notification, including tracking information, when it’s on the way.

Please note that your order will be charged in full when it ships.  As a courtesy and to thank you for your patience, you’ll then receive a credit for the shipping charge within 7 business days.

Last Nexus Standing In The US Falls – 16GB Nexus 10 Now ‘Sold Out’

image

There’s no denying Google’s launch of its new Nexus lineup has been a little bumpy. On launch day, we saw near-instantaneous shortages of the Nexus 4 in multiple countries including the US. Shortly after the Nexus 4 sold out in the US, the 32GB Nexus 10 fell. Then the Nexus 7 3G. Just today, we heard reports that many US customers were receiving “backorder” emails, indicating their Nexus 4 order may not ship for up to three weeks. Now, the last Nexus standing has fallen – the 16GB Nexus 10 is officially “sold out” in the Play Store.

Some Customers Are Receiving Backorder Emails From Google, Indicating Nexus 4 Will Ship ‘Within Three Weeks’

n4thumbYou thought the Nexus Chainsaw Massacre was bad? You don’t know the half of it. Today, many users are receiving emails that the Nexus 4s they’ve ordered from the Play Store are backordered and won’t ship out for another three weeks. For those counting, assuming the absolute worst and no additional delays, that will result in phones in brown boxes heading to your door by early December, so if you’ve got holiday plans for them, don’t panic. If, however, you’re given to fits of hysteria when you have to wait for things, well, go ahead and panic.

Our own Cameron and Ron have both had their orders delayed and confirm their cards have already been charged.

Sega Confirms Release Date For Jet Set Radio

Today we learned Sega plans to release the Android, PlayStation Vita and iOS versions later this month. Vita users will get fist crack at it on November 20th. Android and iOS users will have to wait a little longer for a November 29th release. Not quite the summer release Sega had promised back in July, but if it’s the faithful port of the original Dreamcast, I doubt too many people will mind.

image

If you’re a resident of the US waiting for your chance at one of the new Nexus devices, you’ve no doubt been growing envious as countries around Europe (and Australia) got to place their own orders before (and after) the rumored 12am PST launch time for the US.

Well, I’ve got some (kind of) good news – the wait is almost over. Google has confirmed to us that both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 will be open for order to US Play Store customers beginning tomorrow, Tuesday November 13th, 2012 at 9:00am PST. The confirmation comes via a quick call to the Nexus support line (1-855-83-NEXUS).

Nexus 4, 10, And HSPA+ Nexus 7 Orders Now Live For Customers In UK, France, Germany, Spain

image

It looks like we can add one more market to the list of those to which Google has opened the Nexus gates. Customers in a few European countries can now claim their own Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 from Google Play. Note: since these orders just opened up, you may see some errors or inconsistencies with ordering or availability. If any of the devices appear to truly be out of stock, we’ll update this post.

The new flagships, which are both impressively spec’ed and amply powerful, have been hotly anticipated since their late-October announcement, and should be available for those in select other countries soon. 

Those of you who have been anxiously waiting to relieve that itch in your trigger finger should head to the Play Store and place your orders as soon as you can.

Google Clarifies Nexus 4 / 10 Availability: Orders And Shipments Start November 13th, No Pre-Orders

camera

Have you been chomping at the bit to figure out when you’ll actually be receiving that Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 from the Play Store that you’re definitely going to buy? Well, here’s your answer, straight from Google: orders will begin for both on the 13th, and those orders will start shipping the same day. No pre-orders will be taken. So, if you go for overnight shipping, you could theoretically have sweet Nexus goodness the very next day – November 14th. To put an asterisk on this statement, if your country has the Nexus 4 / 10 set for release on the 13th, too, the above probably applies to you, as well.

Google Support Confirms All Android 2.3+ Devices Will Work With Physical Wallet Card And Non-NFC Version Of App

unnamed

Corroborating some pretty hard evidence of the physical Google Wallet card’s existence we revealed last week, TechCrunch noticed this morning that a definite reference to that card has appeared on Wallet’s official support site. More importantly, though, this confirms my own suspicions about the future of the Google Wallet app in light of the physical card: near-universal compatibility.

According to the support page, the new non-NFC version of the Wallet app will be compatible with any Android 2.3.3+ device, which is pretty much the vast majority of Android devices out there. This is big. This is the “circumvention” of the carriers we heard rumblings of earlier this year.

Verizon Confirms New HTC Droid DNA

Remember a little while ago, when we saw that awesome Japanese demo video featuring the HTC J aka Butterfly? Well looks like over here it will be called the Droid DNA, and thanks to a support page, Verizon is looking to get it first. Verizon did not get any of the HTC One series phones, so it looks like they are making up for it by bringing you this beast of a phone.

The Droid DNA will be HTC’s stab at the “phablet” market. That 5-inch screen to bring you all that pretty….Sense. Yes, I know Sense is not on many people’s top UI list, but it has improved over the years, and if you watched that demo video, I do not think you will mind it at all. The support page lists the Droid DNA, as you can see be the screenshot below, but there is no confirmed pricing or release. My guess is that it will show its big head around the holidays. So let us know if you plan on getting this 5-inch bad boy.
