Barnes & Noble is partnering with Samsung to continue the Nook series of tablets. It's more of a co-branding than anything, as the first product will be the "Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook", based off the 7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 4.
Over-the-air update files now available for multiple devices
Following the recent release of Android 4.4.3 for Nexus devices in factory image form, the first over-the-air updates have started rolling out this morning. So far we've confirmed it's rolling out for the Nexus 7 2013 (Wifi), Nexus 5 and Google Play editions of the Galaxy S4, HTC One M7 and HTC One M8. We'd expect more Nexus devices (and eventually Google Play editions) to follow with OTAs in the near future, and as always not everyone will get the update immediately. In the meantime, impatient Nexus owners can always fall back on a manual install of the update if they're feeling adventurous.
We've got download links and more info after the break.
T-Mobile has announced they're shaving off $100 from the price of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 for Father's Day. It's now $600, or $25/month over two years. If you'd rather be scraping around the bargain bin for your Father's Day present (how much do you love your father?), the Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 is getting released on June 18 for a scant $168. Just keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Of course, T-Mobile is still offering 200 MB of free tablet data to anyone.
AT&T has announced it will be the first wireless carrier to sell Samsung's Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 tablet, along with the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2, starting on June 6. The Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and has a 1.2 Ghz quad-core processor, along with 16 GB of internal storage. That amount can be expanded by up to 16 GB in additional memory. It also has an 6,800 mAh battery that is supposed to last up to nine hours.
Ahead of an official announcement of Samsung's rumored Galaxy Tab S series, we now have what appears to be official press images of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4. It appears that Samsung is keeping the design language of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 consistent with the flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone and with the previously leaked Galaxy Tab S 10.5 tablet.
Notorious leakster @evleaks just posted press renders of Samsung's 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab S, an AMOLED tablet that the South Korean manufacturer is scheduled to unveil on June 12 in an event in New York.
We got our hands on the AT&T's Asus PadFone X on Wednesday and we think its price makes it stand out. For $199 with a new contract or $549 full retail price, you get a combination of a 5-inch Full-HD LTE Android smartphone and a 9-inch Full-HD LTE tablet. What exactly do you get for the price? Watch our unboxing video to find out.
The last time we saw the Asus Padfone X, it was locked inside a glass case. Tonight in New York City, AT&T and Asus finally let us get our hands on them. The Padfone X is a new smartphone and tablet hybrid that will be available to pre-order from AT&T online or in stores on June 6th for $199 with a two-year agreement. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3GHz quad-core CPU, 16GB of on-board storage with a Micro SD slot, and runs Android KitKat 4.4.
