Samsung has been working with the Sungkyunkwan University to develop graphene technology for future flexible devices, and they recently made a breakthrough in the manufacturing process. This breakthrough is likely to bring the super-material to market much sooner than predicted. This new breakthrough is a new manufacturing method, designed to produce large, thin sheets of graphene. While it is true that methods for that already exist, what is unique about this one is that Samsung's process does not reduce the mechanical properties of the nanomaterial, which has been a problem of other manufacturing techniques.

If you haven't heard of graphene, it's a nanomaterial which is likely to completely disrupt and alter the future of the entire electronics industry. Here's a quote which explains why graphene is so revolutionary...

Even though Asus officially announce the new PadFone X in January, they didn't reveal the specs of the device. Asus doesn't have to worry about providing those details anymore. Their "good buddy" AT&T revealed the full specs of the device recently. We still don't know when or at what price the device will arrive, but we at least know it is coming to AT&T.

Here's that spec-breakdown:

The Asus PadFone X phone section -
  • 5-inch 1080p Full HD touchscreen
  • 13 MP rear camera
  • 2 MP front camera
  • 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of internal storage
  • A microSD card slot
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • 2,300 mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Dimensions are 143.93×72.46×9.98 mm, and it weighs 150 grams

The Asus PadFone X Tablet Dock -
  • 9-inch 1,920×1,200 touchscreen
  • 1 MP front camera
  • 4,990 mAh battery
  • Dimensions will be 250.4×172.25×11.63 mm, and it will weigh 514 grams

With each successive generation of this innovative device it keeps getting better and better. Asus has done a great job at refining and perfecting their technology. Let us know if you plan on picking up one of these.

We have two pics of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 were leaked by @evleaks. These pics show off the smallest of the The Galaxy Tab 4 series which will eventually arrive in 7-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch models.


They contain the usual Samsung aesthetics. Additionally, these pics reveal that the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 will continue Samsung's trend of including the ability to make phone calls on the device.

This is probably not ideal for a regular phone call, but it could be pretty useful for Skype calling.

Sony's Xperia Z2 Tablet has been approved by the FCC for AT&T. This bodes well for Sony's Xperia Z2 smartphone to also come to AT&T. This hardly comes as a surprise as AT&T is the typical "go-to" U.S. carrier for Sony's products. Here's a quote with a few more details...

The latest rumor regarding the Google Nexus 8.9 tablet suggests that HTC will be the OEM of choice for the tablet, and that it will be a premium product with a premium price tag. According to recent reports, the HTC made Nexus 8.9 device will include a 2K display, but will fetch a price higher than the previously rumored $299. The media is speculating anything from $349 to $399.

On top of this, there is also talk that the device will be announced at Google I/O on June 25th, and will be in mass production for a planned July street launch. We will keep you updated if more details arrive before the conference.

Rumors of a Nexus 6 and a Nexus 8 have been floating around the web for months. Today we have inklings of a Nexus 9. Supposedly, Google is developing an 8.9-inch Nexus 9 tablet designed to compete directly with the iPad Air. According to this rumor, it will have a display that is better than 2K. No specifics were given regarding the specs of this display or the device itself.

The only other thing revealed was...

Not too long ago we posted some rumors suggesting that Amazon would increase its Prime pricing. The speculation at that time was that it might go up to as high as $129.99 per year. The price bump is no longer a rumor and is about to take place next week, but luckily, it won't be quite that high. Amazon Prime's new price will go from $79.99 to $99.99 for the year. Students with an Amazon Prime account will see a smaller increase (although it remains proportional). Their accounts go from $39.99 to $49.99 per year.

The new pricing will go into effect immediately for new customers starting some time next week (actual date is unspecified at the time of this report). For existing customers...

We have another "pie in the sky" Google Nexus 8 Android tablet rumor to share with you today. This intel closely resembles the previous bit we shared here; however, this new report sheds additional light on some of the hardware details of this potential device. Here's the scoop:

Google Nexus 8 Tablet -
  • 8-Inch Display
  • Intel Atom "Moorefield" 64-bit 2.3GHz quad-core processor with enhanced performance memory
  • PowerVR G6430 GPU
  • Android 4.5

Supposedly, Google will announce the tablet later this year and it will be one of the first devices running their next iteration of Android, which will supposedly be 4.5. Using Intel hardware would be a substantial departure from the norm for Google, but we wouldn't put it past them. Despite this possibility, we are skeptical of this news, but thought it worth reporting.

What do you guys think? Would you like to see an Intel powered Nexus 8 device later this year?

Here's a welcome surprise from out of left field. HP is back in the Android tablet game with a potentially worthy competitor. They just announced the HP 8, and the name corresponds to the display size of the device. What's really surprising is the affordable price of the HP 8. At only $170, this is easily the least expensive 8-inch tablet on the market. Of course, with that price you don't expect that the specs will be anything spectacular to write home about and you would be right. Here's the scoop...

Samsung not only gives us some great phones and other electronic devices, they serve in helping in humanitarian efforts as well. This academic year, they been providing awards of tablets, laptops, and video cameras and other technology to schools around the nation in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition.

I became aware of this competition after seeing the story on our local news station. One of our local Idaho middle schools has qualified in the final 15 schools across the nation for competing for the grand prize with their Earthquake Protection project. To see all entries and schools chosen for this honor see this link.

Samsung is dedicated to helping people discover a world of possibilities. We do this by creating products and technology that inspire passion and give consumers experiences they never dreamed were possible. With these practices in mind, Samsung started the Solve for Tomorrow education contest, giving schools across the U.S. the opportunity to raise interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) subjects among students by awarding their schools with a share of more than $2 million* in technology products.
A couple of students from each school will present its project before a panel of judges in Austin, Texas, where only 15 remaining classes will compete. Five of them will earn $140,000 in technology from Samsung, while the remaining 10 classes automatically earn $35,000 for making it.

One class will will win the $140,000 and a trip to Washington, D.C., for winning the Community Choice Award. The award is won by receiving the most online votes.
Check out the link and place your vote for the school of your choosing to help these talented students! The winner will be announced March 14, 2014 so get your votes in now. VOTE here.
