If certain source code changes applied recently see through the release of the next Android version, many root apps won’t probably have the freedom like they have now and could end up broken.
While the local budget smartphone market has an alternative for just about any branded device out there, there has yet to be one that mimics the Samsung Galaxy Note. That could change pretty soon as Cherry Mobile just teased what could be their next new release on their Facebook page!
Two new tablets by Asus have arrived in the Philippines. Marketed as mid-range devices, the Asus MeMO Pad 8 and MeMO Pad 10 are Android-powered slates that feature IPS displays with 1280-by-800 (WXGA) resolution and quad-core processors.
In case you missed it, the Cherry Mobile Superion Core first appeared last year, featuring a quad-core mobile processor and a 7-inch IPS LCD for Php6,499. It appears that this HSPA+ phablet is still available, as have been announced on the company’s Facebook fan page.
After having been exposed by its online user manual, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite is now officially a part of the company’s tablet portfolio. The name speaks for itself; it’s a budget tablet with a 7-inch display, dual core processor, and 3600mAh battery.
It’s nothing like what Sony and Microsoft offer in terms of hardcore gaming performance. Heck, even the Nintendo Wii U delivers more power. But if the price is what matters to you most, then check out this new Android-powered gaming console for $120—the Huawei Tron.
Alcatel has announced a new pair of additions to its OneTouch tablet portfolio. Focusing on 3G/mobile connectivity, the Alcatel OneTouch POP 7 and POP 8 are entry-level Android slates with “fun and colourful styling.”
Not too long ago, we featured a leak of a seemingly-impossible Android-based device from Nokia. Code named “Normandy”, we thought that we’d never see this phone’s light of day, what with Nokia being part of Microsoft now and all. But now, it seems that we might see this phone come to fruition after all! There are not one, but two leaks that can lend credence to this!
Samsung are certainly gaining much foothold in the Androidsphere. While most people are undoubtedly waiting for any announcement regarding their upcoming flagship smartphones for this year, it’s undeniable that their latest announcements are generating a buzz nonetheless.
It’s Sony’s turn to wow us in CES, and they’ve announced a miniaturized version of their current flagship, the Z1. Named Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, it seems to be similar to the Z1f that they recently released in Japan, though with a few minor differences (like the Andoid version).
Budget-friendly phones seem to be quite a trend in CES 2014, as Acer has also unveiled a new smartphone for the low-end market. The new Acer Liquid Z5 is a 5-inch smartphone with a dual-core processor, 5-megapixel camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
