U.S. court denies Apple's request to block sales of Samsung Galaxy devices

“It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed,” U.S. judge wrote in a decision that came out last Friday, December 2, denying Apple’s appeal for a preliminary injunction against Samsung and from stopping it from selling Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

The two companies have been battling it out in court since April, when Apple Inc filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung for ‘slavishly’ copying and using a number of technologies off its iPad and iPhone.

Amazon Begins Redesign Testing for Retail Site

Written on September 05, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Amazon.com is in the process of testing out a redesign for its retail site.

Recent reports revealed that Amazon just started a redesign testing for its retail website — a possible signal for its new tablet’s arrival.

The Wall Street Journal confirmed that the tests began last week and will continue to be kicked off to more customers, though the date of its full launching remained undisclosed. The revamped design now gets a cleaner interface with more lighter space and larger search box. The manufacturer also announced that the redesigned site will be featuring new applications, digital games, ebooks, and MP3 songs.

Rumors have claimed that this redesigning issue might mark the launching of a tablet-optimized site. Last July, several reports were disclosed, stating that Amazon’s rumored Android-powered tablet might be released by October with a price of $250. Perhaps the company is aiming to offer the tablet in a much affordable price, so they could be one of iPad’s top competitor.

Amazon’s New Tablet Computer, to Hit the Market by October

Written on July 15, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

New tablet computer from Amazon, scheduled for a release in October.

Amazon finally intros its new tablet computer which will be launched in October. The said device will be produced in order to compete with Apple’s iPad, and also to help its own digital content store in marketing their music, movies, and other content.

Entering the tablet market would probably be a hard battle for Amazon, knowing that Apple has been the leader of tablet sales — with 19.5 million worth of devices that were sold since the iPad launching last year.

Though the company had not yet revealed some features of the upcoming tablet, few reports have leaked out that it will be a nine-inch screened tab running on Google’s Android platform. The new Amazon tablet would not feature any camera, unlike the iPad 2, but will be available in a pricing that is much affordable — making it the best choice over other tablets in the market.

Smartphone, Hidden Inside ASUS PadFone Tablet

Written on May 31, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

The Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone plugs into a laptop-like companion, consisting of a keyboard and a screen. This is a very novel idea that gives gadget lovers the convenience.

Hiding a smartphone inside a tablet can make you enjoy the best of both worlds, just like what ASUS did it with its PadFone, Nuzzling its new Android smartphone into a docking bay at the back of the large-screened tablet, it has a small door that closes behind it, secretly storing the phone.

According to its Facebook page, ASUS has been plugging its tagline: “Break the Rules: Pad or Phone,” and the company is doing it by releasing the Motorola Atrix’s versatility to a tablet form. There even is a small hole for the Gamin ASUS-like smartphone’s camera to peep out.

ASUS and Motorola are on the right track, as those who carry around a bag full of gadgets everyday would like to avoid repetition of efforts. The system ASUS has created uses what’s probably a dual-core processor inside the smartphone that can run a tablet. Hence, there’s just one unit that handles both tablet and smartphone processing, and of course, just one cellphone bill to pay.

What People are Really Doing with Their Tablets

Written on April 12, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

With tablets inching its way in replacing the laptops as a mobile computing device, it’s inevitable to ask the tablet-universe denizens on what they use their devices for. Good thing Google’s AdMob was up to the task as they polled tablet-owners in the U.S. on what they were doing on the devices. Is it for checking e-mails? Reading the digital newspapers, shopping online, playing games?

Well, the results definitely left a lot of people stagger as it seems the tablet is not only here to clash against the laptops, but most likely against the handheld gaming consoles as well (no surprise there, folks).

Check out the chart after the break!
