First look at the Galaxy Note 8 car dock

Galaxy Note 8 car dock

So the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is a more-than-capable Android tablet, as well as as an oversized phone. And if you want to dock it in your car, Samsung's got you covered there, as well.

Yes, there's an official car dock for this phone/tablet hybrid. It's done in the usual Samsung motif of glossy black plastic, and the tablet fits snugly inside. We didn't see any specific car app installed on this Note on display, but you can find any number of them in the Play Store.

All in all, it's a stylish way to keep the Note 8.0 at hand in your vehicle. The trick will be to keep from creating an 8-inch blind spot on your windshield.

We've got one more pic after the break.

First look at the HTC One cases, charger and dock

HTC One flip case

To compliment its stunning One smartphone, HTC introduced a handful of accessories this morning, including a variety of cases tailored specifically by the company for the device. HTC seems to have caught onto the fact that hardware only tells half the story for consumers, and phones with a rich accessory ecosystem are almost always more appealing to the average customer. 

HTC has played around with these cases and each has a unique draw: the kickstand case harkens back to the EVO era, while the flip case is reminiscent of one of the cornerstones of Samsung's sales strategy. There's also a three-piece case which will come in a variety of color combinations for maximum personalization.

In addition to cases, there's also a handy mobile charging system (a bite-sized box to carry in your pocket for a quick re-up) and a dock. Unfortunately, these items were behind lock and key this morning, so we cannot report on the charger's capacity or if the dock's specifications.

No word on availability or pricing of these accessories just yet, though we're willing to bet they'll be ready in time for the One's launch late next month. Hit the break for the full accessories gallery.

Nexus 7 dock review

Nexus 7 dock.

The long-overdue Nexus 7 accessory brings contact charging and audio output – if you can find one

After what's felt like an eternity, we finally have our mitts on the official ASUS dock for the Nexus 7 tablet. This would be the dock that finally takes advantage of those four little gold contacts on the side of the tablet , allowing you to charge the device without having to worry about plugs. That's a technology that goes back to the Nexus One days (and you'll recall how that dock took its sweet time to get to us, too), and we're glad to finally have it with Google's premiere 7-inch tablet.

Google's still not selling this dock, though, and availability is spotty with other online retailers. We picked ours up for about $40 before shipping.

This isn't an intricate accessory by any means, but it's very much a welcome one. A few quick thoughts after the break:

Nexus 7 dock now shipping to those in the US

We had seen plenty of expected shipping dates for the Nexus 7 dock, however as of today — it has begun shipping. This applies to those in the US, however it looks like the dock is only shipping with one retailer at the moment. Those looking to make a purchase will want to head to the ExcaliberPC.com website where the dock is priced at $39.99.

IMG_295299 (1)

Of course, you also have to take shipping into consideration here. The shipping will vary depending on the location, however in this instance, they wanted a bit more than $10 to ship using FedEx. And even more to ship using the postal service. Simply put, you will have to decide whether having a dock is worth roughly $50.

In terms of what to expect, this is a fairly basic dock. You will get what is being described as a dock “with an attractive design that combines polished glass on the outside and durable-grip rubber on the inside.” More important here, you will be getting a dock with a microUSB port and 3.5mm audio jack. Basically, what you get is a dock that allows you to charge and/or play music through external speakers.

Otherwise, in addition to the ExcaliberPC.com listing, the Nexus 7 dock has also been spotted with B&H Photo. The B&H listing has the dock priced at $39.99, with an expected availability date as January 18. Finally, given we have seen some third-party retailers, we are also keeping an eye on the Google Play Store in hopes the Nexus 7 dock comes available (with a slightly lower price point).

Google Nexus 7 dock now available and in stock

Late last week it appeared all the people waiting for the Nexus 7 dock to be available had a couple weeks wait ahead of them. In a bit of under-promise, over-deliver, retailer EXcaliberPC.com now has the ASUS produced dock in stock and is accepting order for $39.99. The dock provides a stand for the Nexus 7 that puts it at a nice viewing angle for movies, photos, or reading while charging the device and providing a 3.5mm port for speakers. If you are ready to order the dock for your Nexus 7 device, use the source link below.

ASUS UK puts Nexus 7 dock up for order at £24.99 … sort of

Android Central

The official ASUS Shop website in the U.K. has just put its dock for the Nexus 7 available for purchase for £24.99. Well, sort of. This fits in nicely with previous rumors and pre-order pages we've seen that pegged the release for mid-January, but there's a catch here. Although the product shows up when searching for it directly or browsing through its listing for all Nexus 7 accessories, any link that you use to go to it or view the product description either results in an error or redirect to the home page.

(Hi, everybody! Phil here. The direct link to the dock works fine for me. That's why there's a bit of confusion. But since it works for me, I assume the problem is with the rest of you. Now, back to our story.)

If you're bold and want to go straight from the search listing to putting in your cart for purchase, the Nexus 7 dock will set you back that £24.99 (plus £6.00 shipping.) When moving to check out with the dock though, it lists a delivery delay of two weeks as well. We're not entirely sure what's going on here, but if we had to make a suggestion we'd say wait this one out a day or two and see if things get ironed out over at ASUS Shop.

ASUS Nexus 7 Dock Set To Ship On January 16th

 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for those of you Nexus 7 owners looking forward to that elusive docking station, but it appears the shipping date has been pushed back just oh-so slightly. According to the listing found at online retailer B&H, the Nexus 7 dock has been revised to show a January 16th shipping date— which still technically falls in line with the originally expected mid-January ship date, but still gives a minor reason for concern considering there are many of you out there who were hoping for the dock arriving as early as on the 15th (or even possibly before that).

The good thing is that at least the 16th is only a few weeks away… let’s just hope owners of the tablet won’t need to wait beyond that.

Tablet Weights give you a stylish display stand for your slate

It’s no secret that the state of Android tablet accessories is pretty frustrating. Most OEMs drag their feet on delivering proper tablet docks, and some don’t even bother. Heck, we’re still waiting on Google to deliver the official multimedia dock for its own Nexus 7, though recent retailer updates suggest that will come January 10th.

Well, the folks behind the famous smartphone coasters have come up with a new tablet for those who want to display their tablets in a stylish way. They’re called Tablet Weights, and the desktop-bound accessories — which are 6 inches in diameter — are made out of a clear acrylic to give you that in-store display look.

The base can hold a tablet in a few different orientations — portrait, landscape, and even at a 20-degree angle if you need it elevated to work on. The non-skid silicon gracing the edges keep everything from slipping and sliding about.

One has to wonder whether or not one of these is worth the unattractive price of $50, though. The materials might be nice and the flexibility of it might be ideal, but at the end of the day it’s just a generic tablet stand. I wouldn’t mind having one, but at $50 I would much rather get something like Logitech’s wireless keyboard.

That particular device comes with a carrying case that doubles as a tablet stand. It won’t quite hold the tablet up at a comfortable 20-degree angle for a workstation-like experience ala the Tablet Weight, but I would imagine it’s infinitely more useful for those who just want something to prop their tablet up. You can buy the Tablet Weight from NewPCGadgets right here.

ASUS Nexus 7 Dock Set To Ship To European And US Customers In Mid-January

 

Those of you in Europe and the US who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the elusive ASUS Nexus 7 dock are officially in luck as the dock is officially due to arrive sometime this month. Reports are coming in from AndroidWorld.nl that the dock is due to arrive in mid-January, while some US retailer outlets are now showing a similar availability date after previously being slightly vague with the dock’s availability date. Just when you think the Nexus 7 can’t get any better… it gets better— and better late than never I might add.

Hopefully it won’t be too long of a wait for Nexus 7 owners elsewhere in the world.

Nova Launcher updated to version 2.0 with several new features

Just last month we completed some testing of launcher apps on tablets to replace what users may have received on their devices. Among our favorites was Nova Launcher, which just got an update to version 2.0 in the Google Play Store. Nova Launcher‘s developer, TeslaCoil Software, has included several new features in this latest version with many of them being available in the free version.

For the Prime version, users can select a custom icon size and use swipe actions on any desktop icon. Both versions of Nova Launcher get custom wallpaper cropping, an increased grid size, an infinitely scrolling drawer, an alphabetically listed app drawer option, and a small icons option for the dock. Under the hood, the launcher promises lower memory usage, better scrolling performance, an “aggressive desktop setting” to keep track of running apps, and various other fixes, optimizations and tuning.

If you want to give Nova Launcher a try, use one of the download links below.

Nexus 7 docks shipping January 10th according to retailer

We’ve all been longing for some official accessories or docks for our Nexus 7 tablets, and it looks like the wait will just be a few more days. Late last month we reported the official ASUS Nexus 7 dock should be available later in the month but that never happened. Online retailers such as B&H Video are still accepting pre-orders though.

Nexus-dock

Today reports have surfaced that while the December 30th deadline was missed, the docks will indeed ship later this week with deliver dates ranging from January 10th and on. We’ve yet to hear from Google or ASUS regarding these official accessories, but it sounds like a few retailers know something we don’t.

Unfortunately while B&H and other retailers are claiming January 10th ship dates, those are “expected” delivery dates. Which means they probably still are awaiting stock to arrive, and we could possibly still be facing further delays on this little dock for our Nexi.

The January 10th date also matches some previous reports from AndroidWorld and a few other sources, so things are looking up for those searching for a dock come mid January. It’s nothing too special and only has micro-USB and 3.5mm audio out, but it’s an official accessory and sure will look nice on my desk. Who’s grabbing one for $39.99?

Nexus 7 Dock Shipping Date Continues to Slip, January 10 Now in Play

No surprise here, but the official Nexus 7 dock’s shipping date has slipped back to January 10. When we first started seeing potential launch dates for it, December 30 was the initial target. Shortly after seeing that date, January 6 came into play, but now it appears as if we may be waiting longer. The [...]

Retailer expects Nexus 7 dock to ship January 10th

We’ve heard so much about the official Nexus 7 dock leading up to today, but have yet to receive official word from Google regarding its status of availability. At least one retailer looks to have some desirable information, however, as B&H Photo has updated its listing to show an “expected” availability date of January 10th.

Unfortunately the wording leaves room for possible delays, but should all the stars align and should the universe be in a favor-granting mood we should be seeing these starting to ship at some point next week. Priced at $40, the official dock uses the Nexus 7′s triple pin connector for data transmission and charging. The dock itself will feature a 3.5mm audio out jack and a microUSB port for those very reasons.

It’s nothing amazing, but there’s nothing like getting an official accessory that was intricately designed for your device. Google still doesn’t acknowledge its existence in the Google Play Store strangely enough, but it’s no doubt coming and we’ll be mighty glad once it arrives. Head to B&H to sign up to be notified when it’s available.

[thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Canonical introduces Ubuntu for smartphones

While this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Android and Ubuntu play nice together, this does mark a new era for the platform. Today software maker Canonical announced Ubuntu for phones, which aims to make superphones also be a full PC. They’ve already crammed Android and Ubuntu together for dock webtop like features, but this is their full-fledged OS.

Screen Shot 2013-01-02 at 11.41.57 AM

This has been in the works for some time, with us getting our first glimpse back in February of last year. However today this Linux operating system powered by the Android kernel now has its own Ubuntu version for smartphones and looks pretty interesting. That “lockscreen” looks legit.

Ubuntu for phones is more than just a mobile OS too, it also doubles as a full PC experience. Once docked and using a keyboard/mouse this will be Ubuntu as you know and love for desktop users. With quad-core smartphones rocking 2GB of RAM, it’s safe to say the extremely lightweight and efficient Ubuntu will run just fine. They’ve made what they call a revolutionary user interface and here’s what to expect:

– Edge magic: thumb gestures from all four edges of the screen enable users to find content and switch between apps faster than other phones.
– Deep content immersion – controls appear only when the user wants them.
– A beautiful global search for apps, content and products.
– Voice and text commands in any application for faster access to rich capabilities.
– Both native and web or HTML5 apps.
– Evolving personalised art on the welcome screen.

being extremely open-source we’re expecting plenty of options, features, apps, and customization in the future. This project has been in the works for some time and is finally starting to take shape. As you noticed, the entire video is shot with the Android-powered Galaxy Nexus — running Ubuntu for Smartphones. We’ll be on the lookout for the Canonical booth during CES and will surely get some hands-on time with this as soon as possible. Who’s interested?

Nova Launcher 2.0 adds loads of new features

Fans of Nova Launcher will be watering at the mouth when they see what the latest version — which happens to be 2.0 — has in store for them. There’s a massive list of changes and new options to be had so let’s take a look and see what 2.3MB upgrade will bring you.

Starting with those who own the premium Nova Launcher Prime package, paying users can now customize the size of icons for app shortcuts, and will also be able to perform swipe actions on any of those icons.

The common crop of changes include custom wallpaper cropping, an infinite scroll drawer setting, a new alphabetical list view for the drawer, a setting for making small dock icons, custom wallpaper cropping, an option to keep the launcher in memory for faster access and more.

Nova launcher has quickly ascended to the thrown as the go-to launcher for those on Android 4.0 and higher, and that’s for good reason. No other Holo-based launcher is touching its list of features and customization options, and the app is backed by one of the most active developers you’ll find in the Play Store. Give it a whirl if you haven’t already, and if the Prime version adds even more value for your particular needs you can buy that for just about $4.

Une Bobine Review: /Facepalm

thumb

We’ve looked at a wide variety of accessories over the past couple of years: cases, cradles, headphones, speakers, etc., but I’m not quite sure we’ve ever seen a product like Une Bobine. In a nutshell, it’s a microUSB cable. But it’s not your average USB cable – it’s an adjustable, bendable, flexible USB cable that can be used to hold your phone – a dock and cable in one, if you will.

wm_IMG_2529 wm_IMG_2530

Now, the first question you may be asking yourself is: why would I want this? To answer that honestly, I really have no idea. I’ve had this thing for several weeks now, and I really can’t find a good use for it.

Nova Launcher 2.0 update now available in Google Play

Nova Launcher, the home screen replacement app has recently been updated. And nicely done, this Nova Launcher update brings the app up to version 2.0 with new features as well as fixes and improvements to existing features. This launches remains available for free and will run on devices with Android 4.0 or later.

nova-launcher-banner

And in addition to the free version of Nova Launcher, there is also a Nova Launcher Prime which sells for $4.00. Anyway, while many of the new features, fixes and improvements will cover both versions, there are a few goodies that will apply only to those using the Prime version. Those features include the ability to customize your icon size and swipe actions for any desktop icon.

nova-launcher-screens

Some of the other changes include custom wallpaper cropping, the ability to increase maximum desktop grid size, an infinite scroll drawer setting, an alphabetical list drawer style and a setting to bring small icons to the dock. Otherwise, those in the US with a Galaxy S II will now be able to force wallpaper scrolling. Moving over to the fixes and we have improvements dealing with scrolling performance, lower overall memory usage and an “Aggressive Desktop Setting (keep in memory)” option which is described as follows; “Retrieve Running Apps” used for Aggressive Desktop and warning when multiple launchers are running.”

All said and done, the Nova Launcher 2.0 update brought some notable changes for both the free and paid versions. And if nothing else, the two new Prime (paid) features may be enough to convince a few users to shell out the $4.00 purchase price and begin taking full advantage of all the features. Of course, new features aside, Nova Launcher keeps the goodies such as the scrolling effects, infinite scroll, scrollable dock, customizable app drawer, color themes and icon themes.

[Indiegogo] Onanoff aims to bring Dock Minimal to the world; The only tablet dock and stand you will Need

onanoff-DockMinimalTablet-final003By now you guys should know that we love new gadgets. Sure the next big thing in smartphones is great, but we really like inventive accessories that have the potential to serve you through multiple devices. Battery Backups, Bluetooth speakers, Docks, Stands and just about anything else that will out live what ever device you own now and plan to have in the future. So when we saw this new Dock Minimal product, we just had to show you guys.

“We know how annoying it is to buy all new accessories when you upgrade to a new model or different brand,” says Petur Olafsson, founder of onanoff. “So we wanted to create a dock and stand that evolved with the latest technology and could fit everyone’s new holiday tablets.”

onanoff Dock Minimal 1That about sums it up right there. Dock Minimal is a combination dock, stand and productivity tool all rolled into one easy to use accessory. It offers up 20 different viewing angles for any angle you need for that moment. Everything you need is all housed right inside the dumb bell style design. Slide out the kickstand and insert it into any of the various holes in the back to create the viewing angle you need. The hole and the kickstand arm are magnetic to ensure a solid fit and to keep it from falling out. In the end of the kickstand arm is a stylus that you can slide out and use too. It really is a pretty ingenious little design and versatile product. Take a quick look at a video below see it in action.

 

As you can see, Dock Minimal was designed with various tablet devices in mind. The interchangeable holders for the top that keep the tablet securely in place and the interchangeable cord plugs for the bottom give you a dock/stand that you can use for your Nexus 7, Samsung tablet and even your silly friends iPad. Why have different docks for your various tablets when you can have just one?

onanoff Dock Minimal 2You should know how this works by now. Head over to Onanoff’s Dock Minimal Indiegogo page to see more images and more information about the product. Make a pledge for the amount you want to contribute to the success of Dock Minimal and then sit back and wait for your new accessory to arrive. As it sits right now, they are planning to have them out in the funders hands by February.

Samsung Galaxy S IV Unofficially Rendered, Invites The World To Take A Sneak Peek Into The Future

 

As the world patiently awaits for the “Next Big Thing” from Samsung, some ambitious folks took some time to give us an idea of what to possibly expect from Samsung’s next superphone. A recent hands-on video has surfaced which is more or less giving us a teaser of what the Galaxy S IV should bring including a thin profile complimented with an incredible 2GHz quad-core processor, full 1080p AMOLED display, 13MP camera and Android 5.0— aka Key Lime Pie. The real kicker isn’t just what’s inside of the device, it’s the potential accessories that may accompany the device. The hands-on video highlights what looks to be a revolutionary keyboard dock: a “projection laser keyboard dock” that beams a keyboard layout to whatever surface it’s sitting on and can be typed on— as if it was a real keyboard in front of you.

Naturally viewers of the video should take extreme caution: the hands-on video is by no means real or what the Galaxy S IV will look like. All it is really is a sort of wish-list of items that would make it more awesome than other phones out there.

I know you’re all itching to see what all this potential hubbub is about, so be sure to hit past the break to check out the video.

As the world patiently awaits for the “Next Big Thing” from Samsung, some ambitious folks took some time to give us an idea of what to possibly expect from Samsung’s next superphone. A recent hands-on video has surfaced which is more or less giving us a teaser of what the Galaxy S IV should bring including a thin profile complimented with an incredible 2GHz quad-core processor, full 1080p AMOLED display, 13MP camera and Android 5.0— aka Key Lime Pie. The real kicker isn’t just what’s inside of the device, it’s the potential accessories that may accompany the device. The hands-on video highlights what looks to be a revolutionary keyboard dock: a “projection laser keyboard dock” that beams a keyboard layout to whatever surface it’s sitting on and can be typed on— as if it was a real keyboard in front of you.

Naturally viewers of the video should take extreme caution: the hands-on video is by no means real or what the Galaxy S IV will look like. All it is really is a sort of wish-list of items that would make it more awesome than other phones out there.

I know you’re all itching to see what all this potential hubbub is about, so be sure to hit past the break to check out the video.

Nexus 7 dock pops up on yet another retailer’s website, still not for sale

The elusive Nexus 7 dock just won’t stop teasing us. First it popped up on Asus Japan’s website with a mid-December release date, then we saw some hands-on time in a short unboxing video, then the dock surfaced on B&H Photography’s website with a December 30th release, and today the dock showed up on EXcaliber PC’s website where the little guy is listed as arriving on January 6th, 2013. There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the release of this dock, and we still have no clue whether it will show up on the Google Play store. Anyone willing to place some bets on which date they think they Nexus 7 dock will be available? I’m going with December 30th (just because I don’t like waiting).
