ARCHOS GamePad now available for £129

The weird little Archos GamePad, which combines physical gaming buttons with a 7″ display, can now be purchased direct from Archos for a price of £129.98. The initial batch has already sold out, though, with Archos saying it’s next GamePad shipment will appear for delivery by around December 18th.

The GamePad is powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, arriving with Android 4.1 as its OS and custom button-mapping software to ensure most games are compatible with its array of physical inputs.

If you’re constantly frustrated by games that use on-screen buttons, it might be worth a punt at that price. Check it out over at Archos.

The campaign ended yesterday but PengPod is taking pre-orders on the 7-inch  (PenPod 700) and 10-inch (PengPod 1000) tablets as well as the 3.5-inch miniPC (PengStick). Pre-orders are live now and will ship in January 2013.

Samsung’s Galaxy Axiom now available on US Cellular free on contract

 

Not too long ago we heard rumors of the Galaxy S III Mini hitting US Cellular as the Galaxy Axiom. If you were holding out for this phone, you’re in luck, as the Axiom is now available on US Cellular for an attractive $0.01 on a new contract or upgrade. The specs are in line with the rumors: 4 inch WVGA screen, 1.2 ghz dual-core processor, 5 megapixel camera, 1.3 megapixel front-camera, and ICS running TouchWiz on top. It also features 4G LTE radios, but only if you live in a supported US Cellular market. It also has Google Wallet out of the box, which is rare.

If you don’t want to spend much on a smartphone but want a small piece of Samsung’s flagship brand, the Axiom is a great choice.

DLNA certification possibly outs smaller Note 10.1, Samsung GT-N5100

Smaller tablets seem to be all the rage these days. I think, for most part, they hit that form-factor sweet spot spanning price, usability, and functionality. Most smaller tablets lately are coming with beefy processors so it’s not like there’s a drop-off in performance.

Samsung seems to be going that route with their Note 10.1 if this information from DLNA certification services is accurate. Samsung’s smaller Note 10.1, the Samsung GT-N5100, would fit in that 7″-8″ category. It’ll purportedly have an HD display and rock the now-familiar EYNOS 4412 1.6 ghz quad-core. Does the idea of a smaller Note 10.1 excite anyone?

[New App] Chainfire’s ‘PerfMon’ Is A Floating Performance Monitor With A Unique CPU Metric

perfmon

We all know how useful floating apps can be, so an always-on-top performance monitor makes perfect sense for power users and developers. One such project just hit the Play Store from developer Chainfire, who has already brought us several other useful tools, like CFBench, SuperSU, and FAAPT.

2 1

Simply called Perfmon, this is a floating application that can output certain metrics for monitoring purposes: foreground app, CPU, disk I/O, and network I/O. What makes this app unique, however is its CPU metric called CPU capacity usage. According to Chainfire, it “will take the CPU usage and scale it to what it would be if all cores were running at full capacity.”

For example: if you have a 1.6ghz quad-core running a light app, it could be using 10% CPU with only one of the four cores active, and that core running at 200mhz.

Official Android Police t-shirts are now on sale, with over 25 designs to call yours.

Archos Adds 97 Xenon To Elements Lineup

Archos has expanded its entry-level Elements tablet lineup with a device called the Archos 97 Xenon. This is an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet that is driven by a 1.4GHZ processor, which is an improvement over the 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU found on the Archos 97 Carbon. The Carbon tablet, it may be noted, is also a recent Archos device, which was released just this summer.

Not everything on the new tablet, however, is an improvement. For one, its memory and internal flash storage are lower at 512MB and 4GB, respectively. The Carbon, in comparison, sports 1GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage.

Both devices, however, are packed with a display measuring 9.7 inches diagonally. This display is a capacitive touchscreen with support for five-point multi-touch gestures and 16 million colors. It has an HD screen resolution of 1024 x 768 and comes with IPS technology.

Furthermore, the tablet comes with built-in speakers, a microphone, and a G-Sensor. Photo enthusiasts will find a main camera at its rear with a 2-megapixel sensor. Meanwhile, on its front is a 0.3-megapixel camera. Connectivity features include built-in 3G, WiFi 802.11, and GPS. It is unknown, however, if Archos will be offering 3G connectivity on all models of the Xenon tablet, or if some of them will have Wi-Fi alone.

Its other features are a 3.5 mm audio jack, an SDHC compatible microSD card slot for expansion, a micro USB slave 2.0, and a USB 2.0 port.

The device’s internal Lithium Polymer battery promises 8 hours of video playback time and 20 hours of music playback.

To give possible buyers a clear picture, the Xenon tablet has dimensions of 248 x 188 x 11.5 mm and weighs 650g.

Archos has not announced the tablet’s price or when it will be available in the market. It may be less expensive than the $230 Carbon tablet, given its lower storage capacity and RAM.

ZTE Anthem 4G brings a mid-range option to MetroPCS

ZTE Anthem 4G

MetroPCS announced a new addition to their lineup this morning with the ZTE Anthem 4G. The Anthem 4G represents a solid mid-range device that can access MetroPCS's higher speeds on its LTE network.

The ZTE Anthem 4G sports:

  • 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen
  • 1.2GHZ dual-core processor
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

Yeah, we're disappointed that another phone is released with Gingerbread, but the customers targeted by this device probably don't care.

The Anthem 4G can be had 'in the coming weeks' for $219 (plus tax after mail-in rebate) and 4G plans range from $40 – $70/month, including a $55 unlimited data plan.

So if you're in the market for a budget phone on MetroPCS that can handle 4G speeds, you may want to consider the Anthem 4G.

LG Optimus G vs HTC One X vs Samsung Galaxy S III

LG’s new Optimus G has taken its position as the company’s new flagship device for 2012. That alone is probably enough to turn some heads, but the title of “flagship” doesn’t mean too much if the Optimus G can’t deliver the goods when it comes to what’s under the hood. We’ve compared the LG Optimus G to the Samsung Galaxy S III (and threw in the HTC One X just for kicks) to give you a better idea of the kind of bang you’re getting for your buck, so read on if the Optimus G has piqued your interest.

First, let’s start with the screen. The LG Optimus G comes with a 4.7-inch “TrueHD IPS+” LCD display running at 1280×768 resolution, whereas the Samsung Galaxy S III sports a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen at 1280×720. When weighed against each other, the screens on the S III and the Optimus G both have pros and cons, and the differences between the two aren’t exactly tremendous. The HTC One X, on the other hand, has a 4.7-inch S-LCD screen, and even though it boasts 720p resolution, the Optimus G’s screen will be the better performer.

Next up are the processors, which are definitely the most important part of the phone. The Optimus G comes equipped with a Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHZ, which will definitely be capable of going faster than either the Galaxy S III’s or One X’s S4 dual-core processors. The international version of the Galaxy S III does come equipped with a quad-core Exynos processor clocked at 1.4GHz, so even though that’s better, you’ll still be able to squeeze more power out of the Snapdragon S4 Pro that’s found in the Optimus G.

The Optimus G also comes packing 2GB of RAM under the hood, which is clearly better than the 1GB the S III and the One X can boast. With the front-facing camera, the S III’s 1.8-megapixel shooter comes out on top, as compared to the 1.3-megapixel camera found on the Optimus G and One X. As far as rear-facing cameras go, however, the Optimus G is the winner hands down as it comes with an awesome 13-megapixel camera installed. By comparison, the S III and the One X only have 8-megapixels to take advantage of. All three phones have incredibly similar measurements and weights (though the Optimus G is slightly thinner than the S III), and all three are capable of recording video in 1080p.

You’ll be able to get a bit more life out of the Optimus G’s 2,210 mAh battery than you will with the Galaxy S III’s 2,100 mAh pack, and that’s especially true with the One X, which only has a 1,800 mAh battery to work with. At the end of it all, the HTC One X isn’t even in the competition – the LG Optimus G blows it out of the water easily. The same can’t be said for the match up between the Galaxy S III and the Optimus G. While the Optimus G comes out on top in a lot of places, the Galaxy S III puts up a good fight. Still, the processor, RAM, and rear-facing camera of the Optimus G allow the new flagship device to be crowned the winner of this particular face-off – at least as far as the specs are concerned.

LG brings the Optimus True HD LTE to the Middle East

LG Optimus True HD LTE

LG this morning announced that it's bringing the Optimus True HD LTE to the Middle East, starting with Saudi Arabia.

HTC One X+ shows up at FCC with AT&T LTE

Android Central

We had heard rumblings of a new version of the HTC One X last week, and things are a little closer to reality as the FCC has passed certification for what appears to be the One X+. The documents show full support for AT&T's LTE network, so that at least gives us a direction to look in. 

Here are the rumored specs we've heard so far. 

  • Size: 134.36 x 69.9 x 9.3mm
  • Weight: 129g
  • NVIDIA AP37 1.6GHZ quad core, 1.7GHZ single core
  • ROM: 32GB
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Battery: 1800 mAh
  • Android 4.1 Sense 4.5

While the HTC One X+ is shaping up to be a modest update, LTE is always a nice addition. Anyone One X owners considering an upgrade, or is it not worth it just for LTE? Is that fancy NVIDIA chip tempting anybody?

T-Mobile announces pricing and availability of Samsung Galaxy S Relay

Android Central

T-Mobile announced the QWERTY keyboard-clad Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G last week without a peep about how much the thing will cost or when folks will be able to buy it. Today, T-Mobile tacked on a September 19 launch date and a $149.99 pricetag after mail-in rebate and a two-year contract.  The Samsung Galaxy S Relay 4G is squarely in the mid-range, but a low pricetag, some new unlimited plans, and an honest to goodness keyboard may be enough to sway back-to-school buyers. Here's a recap.

  • 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor
  • 5MP rear and 1.3MP front cameras
  • 1GB of RAM
  • T-Mobile WiFi Calling support
  • SAFE enterprise-ready features and capabilities

Personally, I prefer portrait-oriented keyboards, but I think I could get used to this one. Anyone else thinking about picking up a Galaxy S Relay?

HTC One X+ specs supposedly leak

Android Central

HTC has an event coming up later this month where we're expecting at least one new device to be announced. One tipster is suggesting that it will be a device called the HTC One X+ with the following specs. 

  • Size: 134.36 x 69.9 x 9.3mm
  • Weight: 129g
  • NVIDIA AP37 1.6GHZ quad core, 1.7GHZ single core
  • ROM:32GB
  • RAM: 1 GB
  • Battery: 1800 mAh
  • Android 4.1 Sense 4.5

The source has also been posting a bunch of HTC Windows Phone slides on Twitter, which adds plenty of legitimacy to the One X+ claims. He also says the screen hasn't changed since the HTC One X (which has a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 screen). 

Overall, the One X+ is shaping up to be a decent update. The screen was pretty solid anyway, so not too much to complain about there. HTC's revenues aren't doing so hot lately, so they could sure use a big hit. What would you guys like to see in the next version of the HTC One X?

 Also yesterday we found out about the additional color choices that will be available for the upcoming Sony Xperia SL.  Today, we’ve got some more photos of the silver version.

The phone features an overclocked processor (from 1.5 ghz to 1.7 ghz), but most of the specs look unchanged from the slightly older but still good-looking Xperia S.  More pics after the break.

Ematic hopes you will spend your $79 on their Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, the eGlide

Ematic eGlide 4

A cheap tablet you say? Yeah. Here's is another. Ematic has just announced their release of the eGlide, their all new 7 inch Ice Cream Sandwich tablet that is destined for Walmart. Powering this tablet is a 1Ghz processor with 512MB of RAM, which isn't terrible, but also far from the best we have seen. Internally you will have access to 4GB of storage for your favorite applications, games and more, and they are also offering 5GB free in the cloud for other stuff to be stored as well. That not enough for you? Well, the device is additionally equipped with a micro-SD card slot, so expand up to 32GB if that is what your heart desires.  The eGlide comes pre-loaded with a voice recorder, Office Suite application for your document needs, and Kobo ebook reader as well. 

Coming in at the $79 price point, it does seem like you get a decent amount for your money here, and if you are in the market for a cheap Android tablet, maybe for the kids or just to travel with, this may be an excellent choice for you.

More Sony Xperia SL Colors Leak

It seems the as yet announced Sony Xperia SL is going to be available in more than just the blue and pink colors that we’ve seen so far ( a good thing, to be sure).  Photos have surfaced showing the phone sporting black, grey and white paint schemes.  Photos and more info after the break.

In addition to the new colors, it also looks poised to get a processor speed bump up to a blistering 1.7 ghz on the same Qualcomm MSM8260 that the Xperia S is rocking.  We still don’t have a release date, but it’s expected that Sony will announce it around September 29th.

Verizon Announces the Pantech Marauder at $49, Made for Smartphone Newbies

The Pantech Maruader first leaked last week as the Star Q, but the specs that accompanied the leak were all sorts of wrong. The device actually has a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, likely the same chipset that is in the Incredible 4G LTE. It also has a 5MP camera, 1GB of RAM, and will be [...]

Full QWERTY Slider Pantech Marauder Announced by Verizon

The full QWERTY slider keyboard is not quite dead yet. Some people do have trouble letting go of the physical keyboard, and making their transition to the world of full touch. I had this problem for a while, going from the G1 and G2, I did not want to go full virtual. After many therapy sessions I was able to make the jump. For those of you that are waiting the new full keyboard will be happy to see that there is a new LTE from Verizon coming out.

The Pantech Marauder has just been announced, in all its slider keyboard glory. It will be dropping August 2nd, and it will cost you a whole huge sum of $50. That is pretty cheap if you are not looking for a super high-end phone. Do not think that this phone is low-end. Pantech phones will surprise you. I did a review on the Pantech Burst, and was shocked to find that it was a fast, smooth phone, that could hold its own in the Android world. This phone does  not look any different. It will be rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core juiced up to 1.2 GHZ, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, 4G LTE, and a 4-inch display. Only downside, it will be running Gingerbread. You hate to see that. New phone released, running in old OS. But then the price is only $50, so I guess you really cannot complain about it. Let us know if you plan on getting one, or maybe getting a family member this phone.

From previous reports that we have seen, the device is set to come with Android 4.0.4, 1.5GHz [...]

Could the Galaxy Note II sport a 1.6Ghz quad-core Exynos processor?

 

What exactly is the Samsung GT-N7100? I’ll tell you what we know. We know that it has a Exynos 4412 processor with Mali 400 graphics, we also know that the screen resolution is 1280 x 720 with a 16:9 aspect ratio and finally we know that the device is currently running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. The reason we know all of this is that a device labelled GT-N7100 has appeared on GLBenchmark listing the aforementioned specifications.

So why do we think the GT-N7100 could be the Galaxy Note II? The first reason is that the GT-N7000 is the original Galaxy Note so following typical Samsung numbering, the GT7100 would suggest the follow up device. Still not convinced? The new aspect ratio points to a screen size greater than 5.5″. Perhaps we’ve taken 2 + 2 and come out with 5 however I believe the GT-N7100 will indeed turn out to be the Galaxy Tab II.

Keep tuned in to TalkAndroid as we bring you updates on the Galaxy Note II as they break.
