NVIDIA announces 7-inch tablet - Tegra 3 and Ice Cream Sandwich for $249 [updated]

71

This just in from the ZOMG! department -- NVIDIA has announced that a 7-inch version of the Transformer Prime will be available, complete with the Tegra 3 processor and Ice Cream Sandwich (wait for it) for $249.  We don't have the full details just yet, only what we've said above.  But isn't that enough to get you excited?  I'm ready to get in line tonight!

Update: We just heard back from ASUS, and the model number for this tablet is the M370T.  That model was used incorrectly in a press release for the ME171 earlier this morning.  It still has the Tegra 3, and it's still $249.  I know most of us weren't really concerned about the name or model number, but now everything is all cleared up.

Samsung Media Hub extends on-demand streaming from phones and tablets to TV

0

For over a year, Media Hub has offered owners of Samsung smartphones and tablets access to on-demand streaming of TV shows and movies. Today at their CES 2012 press conference, Samsung announced that they would be expanding the service to their selection of smart TVs, so if you buy a show on one device, it would be available on others. NBC Universal is one of the premiere partners in this endeavor, and they'll be showcasing Battlestar Galactica through Media Hub.

It's a sensible move to include TVs in Media Hub, considering the breadth of Samsung's business, and a great way to get people on the hook to buy other Samsung products if they already own one. While I'm sure the selection isn't quite up to snuff with Netflix, if you're just interested in renting titles a la carte rather than signing up for a subscription service, Samsung Media Hub might be for you. 

Samsung had a few more interesting announcements in their press conference that at least indirectly effected smartphones, in addition to the AT&T LTE handsets and the Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7 announced earlier today. Stick around for all the rest of our CES 2012 coverage! Remember kids, the show hasn't even technically started yet...

iOnRoad augmented reality driving assistant app for Android

7

Instead of capitulating to the National Transportation Safety Board recommended, iOnRoad by Picitup wants to turn the tables and show how mobile technology can keep you safe and sound on the highways. iOnRoad uses the live camera stream and image detection to monitor for tailgating, cars slowing ahead of you, or lane drift, and sends visual and audio alerts to get you back to the proper distance, speed, and lane where you belong.

iOnRoad works with any Android device with a 1GHz processor running Froyo or better, and features a big, easy to tap interface to minimize control issues while driving. Check out the video above for our live interview from CES 2012 with Pictitup CEO, Alon Atsmon.

Hands-on with the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note

22

The Samsung Galaxy Note is something we have seen before, heck we even reviewed it, but today AT&T announced that they will be releasing the device, and it will run on their 4G LTE network. Naturally we had to check it out, again, and see what it was all about. The device is huge, like really really big, and super thin to the point we wonder where they put the internals. Sporting a 5.3-inch HD SuperAMOLED display with quality that is out of this world. Samsung has of course gone ahead and skinned it with TouchWiz, but that does not seem to affect the performance or slow the device down.

A really cool feature here is the S Pen which is included with the device and is similar to a stylus but not to be mistaken for just a stylus. The pen also has a button on it which basically takes a screen cap of what is on the screen and allows you to then edit it and have some fun. If you like big things, and have big hands, and big pockets, the Samsung Galaxy Note may just be your very own next AT&T device. Hit the break for some more images, and check back later for some hands on video!

Samsung Mobile announces the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 for Verizon

7

When it comes to tablets, Samsung isn't exactly new to the market.  However, this time around, they're bringing a little something to the table in cooperation with Verizon Wireless that they are hoping will stand out among the rest of the crowd. Although it's not exactly anything brand new, it's the same device that was announced at IFA in Berlin.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 will be packing a Super AMOLED Plus display with 1280x800 resolution, a 1.4 GHz dual-core processor along with a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera featuring LED flash and capable of 720p playback (1080p playback through HDMI dock or adapter).  A 2-megapixel front facing camera for video chat, 16GB of storage, and connected through Verizon's 4G LTE round out this device.

If you're concerned about thickness and weight, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 measures just 7.9 millimeters thin and weighs only 340 grams. Samsung and Verizon have plenty of accessories already lined up for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 such as a keyboard dock, multimedia dock, bookcase covers and plenty of HDMI adapters if using Wi-Fi Direct or AllShare isn't good enough for you.  Full press release is past the break for you all, however -- you find it void of any pricing or launch date details outside of it being available in the coming weeks.
