Unannounced Toshiba tablet leaked by Techblog

Toshiba tablet

Toshiba isn’t exactly the first company that comes to mind when you mention the words “tablet” and “Android“, however it seems Toshiba is going to do exactly that. According to pictures and details leaked by Techblog, Toshiba is working on an unannounced tablet, currently labelled as the AT10LE-A, that runs Android and a Nvidia Tegra 4 chipset to boot.

The only hardware specs of the AT10LE-A that have been reported are a 1.8 GHz Tegra 4 ARM Cortex-A15 quad-core processor and that the device will have a 10.1 display. The leaked shots also suggest the Toshiba tablet will have the usual assortment of ports such as microSD and mini HDMI. Also included in the leaked shots is a photo of the tablet sitting in its keyboard dock, which looks pretty damn snazzy, though apart from looking nice doesn’t actually suggest anything about any extra features that the keyboard might add to the tablet’s functionality.

Toshiba tablet

The AT10LE-A will be running with Android 4.2.1 which is oh-so-close to the newest available build. Apart from these details though, there is nothing else we know about this tablet, let alone an estimated ETA. We’ll keep you posted if we hear anything new.

Would you get a Toshiba tablet running Android? Or perhaps you’d like to share your previous experiences with Toshiba tablets, feel free to share below.

Sony ST21i Entry-Level Smartphone Outed

Hello friends, we have the first idea and glimpse of what will be the new standard-bearer for entry-level smartphones. The long-rumored Sony ST21i (also known as “Tapioca”) looks to be the newest addition to the Xperia family. It was recently outed by tech blog Techblog.gr and reveals an impressive design of the device. As you can see, the ST21i seems to be based off its big brother the Xperia S and will have 3 capacative buttons on the front. In addition, the Android 4.0-powered smartphone will feature:

  • A 3.2-inch screen
  • Qualcomm MSM7227 800MHz processor with an Adreno 200 GPU
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 3MP camera

 

There are no further details of the device for now, but we suspect it won’t be long before we have additional details. Hit the break for an additional shot of the intriguing entry-level device.

Sony Xperia ST21i with ICS leaks out, shows off its chunky physique

Sony Xperia ST21i with ICS leaks out, shows off its chunky physique

It may not be as sleek as its S kin, or even as powerful as that mid-level U, but this recently leaked Xperia ST21i might just have enough goodies to lure a handful of you in. According to Techblog, this thick, 3.2-inch unit packs some pretty run-of-the-mill features, including an 800MHz Qualcomm chip paired with 512MB of RAM, a 3-megapixel shooter to help with those Instagram shots and a bland 640 x 480 screen res. Unlike a few of the other Xperias still waiting to be served, though, the ST21i has already been filled with a portion of Google’s famous ICS. No word yet on when the pudgy device will see a legit introduction, but until then you can peek at some extra photos at the source link below.

LG Optimus 4X HD faces up to HTC One X in benchmark tests

As sure as night follows day, benchmark bickering follows the release of a new Android device. I guess we never really outgrow the childhood “My Dad’s bigger than your Dad” complex. Only a couple of days ago we showed you how HTC’s One S performed and now it’s big brothers turn as the One X goes head-to-head with LG’s Optimus 4X HD in a battle of the quad-core titans.

Techblog got its hands on both devices and put them through popular benchmarking tools Quadrant, AnTuTu and NenaMark2. Not surprisingly the results were relatively similar with each phone performing stronger in certain areas. Quadrant saw the LG score a very respectable 4,512 with the HTC posting a market leading 4,909. LG came out the narrow winner in the AnTuTu test posting a 11,147 over HTC’s 11,030.  Finally the HTC managed 47.6 fps ahead of the LG which managed 44.5 fps in the NenaMark test.

So whilst all the publicity and hype is firmly set around the HTC device it’s encouraging to see that LG’s flagship phone more than holds its own against the best in the market. The true test as always will come down to which one performs every tasks better, no doubt a story for another day. Will you be considering the Optimus 4X HD as an alternative to the LG One X? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

A better look at Toshiba’s 13-inch tablet compared to traditional-sized devices

This image has no alt text

It seems there is a market for everyone, including those that believe 10.1-inch tablets are just too tiny. Toshiba has been working on the AT330, which is a 13-inch monster. But how big is that, exactly?

We know 13 inches sounds big, but it is hard to tell if it is too big or not just by looking at images and videos. And there are no other Android tablets out there of this size. So we do not exactly know how a 13-inch device must look and feel in the hands.

The guys from Techblog have a few images for us, better giving us an idea of what this titan is like. In the images, the Toshiba AT330 is compared to a Toshiba Excite 10 LE and a Toshiba AT270. These are sized at 10-inches and 7-inches, relatively.


Most of us have felt a 10-inch device, as well as a 7-inch one. So we are familiar with the feel of said screen sizes. But as we can see here, a 10-inch tablet simply looks like a baby compared to a 13-inch tablet. And many of us believe that 10 inches is already too much. But Samsung is also aiming the larger tablet market with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 11.6.

Of course, some people might love it, as it also offers TV capabilities. Not to mention its awesome specs, which include a Tegra 3 processor, Android 4.0.1, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13-inch 1920×1200 display, a 5 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front shooter.

As for me, it is simply too large. I prefer 7 to 9-inch tablets. And would not know what to do with such a large Android device. But what do you guys think? Would you consider buying a 13-inch tablet?

The 13-Inch Toshiba AT330 Compared to Normal Size Tablets

Yesterday we showed you the humongus 13-inch AT330 tablet from Toshiba. At that time we got a glimpse at what this monster of a slate looks like in all of its TV tuning glory but it was pretty hard to tell exactly how large the tablet really is. Techblog.gr, the folks who brought us the original image, has provided us with some new images comparing the AT330 next to the Excite 10 LTE and AT270. We can now get a better perspective as to how big this tab is in comparrison to the 10 and 7-inch tablets we all have grown accustom to.

So now that you’ve seen it next to a tablet with a familiar size what do you think? Too big? You mean to tell me bigger isn’t actually always better better? :-P

Huawei Honor gets video run-through, manages to hold the mobile court’s attention

Sure, it may not grab headlines like a new iPhone or Google phone but that’s not to say we’re utterly uninterested in seeing a bit more of Huawei’s forthcoming top-drawer handset. Now confirmed to play friendly with US radio frequencies, the single-core 1.4GHz Honor has been given a full video run-through. Techblog posits a December launch and a €300 ($400) price-tag — not exactly the bargain basement prices we’ve come to expect from Huawei, but with a 4-inch touchscreen, DLNA abilities, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a substantial 1900mAh battery, it looks like you’ll get what you pay for. Catch the video after the break to judge for yourself.

Huawei Honor Gets Checked Out on Video

This image has no alt text

Huawei isn’t usually known for anything more than budget-priced fodder, but with the upcoming release of their Android-powered Honor they hope to change the aura around their brand. While still not stretching into dual-core powerhouse territory, the Huawei Honor sports a 1.4GHz CPU, 4-inch display, and 8MP camera. While not as cheap as your typical Huawei offering, the handset will retail for a modest $400. A video overview of the Honor has been posted by Greek outlet Techblog giving us a pretty clear look at what to expect. The handset doesn’t look bad at all, and with indications we could see this one in the US the Honor could be a pleasant surprise for smartphone buyers not looking to drop top dollar while still being rewarded with a fairly impressive list of specs. Check out the video below.

Unannounced Nokia Symbian Belle handset is a mysterious phone within a phone (video)

Half the fun of trade shows is when unexpected beans get spilled at PR stalls and here, my dear Watson, we have another intriguing example. A TechBlog.gr pundit picked up a new Nokia 700 at IFA and was confronted with a stored promo video depicting a totally different and unfamiliar high-end handset. It looks slightly curved like the N9, runs the latest version of Symbian and possesses a rather attractive edge-to-edge LCD. The main gist of the promo is a wireless platform called Air Cloud, which apparently allows the phone to pair up with an audio system via NFC. Word on the street is this could be the N8′s successor — the so-called 801 — but there’s not a great many clues to back that up. In any case, check out the video after the break and savor that fleeting sense of infinite regress.

HTC Pyramid Gets Pictured in the Wild [Update: New Specs Leak]

This image has no alt text

Last week we caught a glimpse of the upcoming HTC Pyramid in the form of some leaked marketing photos, but a new week brings us out first in-the-wild look at the device said to be sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and qHD display. Two different sources snapped up photos that look to originate from the same source, both showing the Pyramid sitting comfortably next to the HTC Desire HD

The photos don’t add much more than we already knew, giving us the same view as before with a bit of added blur. Rumors places this phone as a GSM device headed for the newly AT&T-acquired T-Mobile, and we may hear an official announcement at CTIA this week.

[Update]: TMoNews has gotten their hands on some leaked specs for the HTC Pyramid, which their tipster claims will be launching on the network in June. While initial rumors gave the Pyramid a qHD display, the latest whispers say a rather bland 480×800 resolution is what to expect. Again, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor is cited, and the handset may come with 768MB of RAM. The real kicker for this HSPA+ handset is that it may be among the first to ship with Android 2.4, the OS expected to be announced at this year’s Google I/O.

HTC Pyramid gets caught in all its blurry cam glory

Although we’ve most recently seen some renders of the HTC Pyramid we’re now getting another look at some blurry cam images of the actual device sitting next to an HTC Desire HD. While the renders had Google branding this device is proudly shown off wearing HTC branding.

With specs calling for a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM along with an 8MP rear and 1.3MP front facing camera on board we’re hoping to see more come CTIA. Oddly enough, no mention of what version of Android is running on this device for now — previous rumors suggested Honeycomb but we can’t really see that happening. [Techblog via Engadget]
