For most of us, the roles(s) we play in life color our perspective of the world. Because of this, it's sometimes challenging to see things from "other people's shoes." This begs the question though... is it harder for a billionaire CEO of a billion+ dollar corporation to understand the perspective of the average working-class American consumer, or is it harder for them to understand his point of view?

Regardless of the philosophical debate that question might spark, we have a prime example of this to share with you today. Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam recently made some potentially inflammatory statements...

We are receiving reports that the Tegra Note 7 from NVIDIA is getting the Android 4.4.2 OTA update right now. We aren't sure if this is just for the EVGA version or for any NVIDIA version. Technically they are all the same hardware. Each manufacturer just uses NVIDIA's design and rebrands it as their own. Sound off if you own this tab and have received your update as well.

Thanks for the tip, xsylus!

Starting in Q2 of this year, NVIDIA will have their newest Tegra Note 7 gaming tablet available. The only change is that this one now includes their own 500 LTE modem. With this new 4G LTE connection and the internal hardware of this device, NVIDIA claims there newest Tegra Note 7 is the fastest 7-inch Android tablet on the planet. The device will debut for $299.99 and will be coming to multiple countries.

Here's a quote from the press release with more of the details,

Our Tegra NOTE 7 is getting a new family member – one that comes with great connections.

We’re adding our i500 LTE modem – and its 4G LTE cellular connection – to the world’s fastest 7-inch Android tablet.

We’re also expanding the Tegra NOTE 7’s availability, bringing it over the next few months to Western Europe, Brazil, and Ukraine.

The Tegra NOTE 7 serves up a bundle of cutting-edge mobile technologies – including one of the world’s fastest processors, Tegra 4, a superb stylus, exceptional audio, Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), and, of course, great NVIDIA gaming. And that’s at a starting price of just $199.

Now, we’re added lightning-fast mobile data to the mix. Tegra NOTE 7 is available with LTE and HSPA+ mobile connectivity, and it can operate on popular carriers across the world.

With cellular connectivity, consumers can now get access to the web, check out maps and play videos anywhere they go by purchasing a minimum data plan from many carriers.

TN7 LTE_open view

The Tegra NOTE 7 LTE’s worldwide connectivity is provided by our cellular LTE modem chipset, the fifth-gen NVIDIA i500 processor. i500 leverages a unique software-defined radio technology – meaning it can deliver new capabilities via software without requiring an entirely new chipset. Another big plus is higher efficiency – it’s only 40 percent the size of conventional modems but has 4x the processing capability of its predecessor.

The entire Tegra NOTE 7 family also received an over-the-air update that upgraded the operating system to Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat), which includes support for Gamepad Mapper.Introduced first for our SHIELD portable gaming and entertainment device, Gamepad Mapper turns touch-based Android games into ones that can be enjoyed with the physical controls of a Bluetooth controller.

Look for the Tegra NOTE 7 LTE starting at $299 from partners worldwide* starting in the second quarter.

Google officially unveiled the details on their next Google I/O Developer's Conference. It's only a two-day event this time, and they will be holding it on June 25th - June 26th. We aren't sure what big news Google will have for us this summer, but as usual we are enthusiastic to find out what it is. Here's a quote from Sundar Pichai's Google+ page announcing the event:

Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world.

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at https://developers.google.com/events/io/.

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.
Let us know if you plan on attending the event this year.

If you were looking to pick up the LG G Pad 8.3 and wanted to get a great deal on it, then you have a small window to do that very soon. NewEgg has the brand new high-end tablet from LG for only $249.99. This deal will only last until Monday, February 17th, so you will want to decide quickly. To get this great deal you have to use the promo code FWPD213B at check out. The tablet normally retails for $349.99, but they have it on sale for $279.99. The promo code knocks another $30 bucks for a total savings of $100.

It's hard not to be tempted by this excellent offer considering the superior specs of this device:
  • 8.3-inch 1,920×1,200 touchscreen
  • 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 5 MP rear camera
  • 1.3 MP front camera
  • A microSD card slot
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, an IR port, GPS
  • 4,600 mAh battery
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

Obviously it would be nice to see a newer version of Android on there, but it shouldn't be too long before LG takes care of that. Sound off and let us know if you are, or will be taking advantage of this offer.

It almost sounds like the plot of some Hollywood thriller, but a new report indicates the FCC is trying to stay one step ahead of the dark forces threatening Net Neutrality. They are already working on a plan to circumvent the recent results which damaged the heart of a free an open internet.

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago we reported that Net Neutrality was dealt a potentially "lethal" blow by the combined forces of Verizon, AT&T and several other cable companies, telecoms and ISPs. On January 14th, 2014 a United States Court of Appeals Judge for the District of Columbia ruled against the FCC, and basically gave ISPs the power to oversee and control any internet content across their service. This would mean the ISPs could block/restrict/data cap/charge more for any content they wanted to, and for any reason.

This was a major blow to the FCC's power to insure a free and open internet. Luckily, the FCC was prepared for this possibility and a new report indicates they are already putting a plan in motion to bypass this ruling. Here's their idea...

It's been a long time coming, but a 4G LTE version of the Google Nexus 7 (2013 Edition) is finally making its way to Big Red. Verizon has taken their usual sweet time in "vetting" the device before launching it on their network, but it will be available for purchase on Thursday, February 13. It will normally retail for $349.99, but for a limited time only Verizon will be selling it for $249.99.

Of course, that's only if...

Here's an interesting bit of intel. Supposedly, HTC has secured a contract with Google to produce a new "high-end" Nexus branded tablet in the third quarter of this year. For now we are definitely treating this one as rumor, because it seems a bit suspect. HTC's Android tablets have been anything but a success, and HTC has been on a steep decline for several years now. Why would Google hand over the reigns of the Nexus tablet project to a failing company?

Of course, it is...

If you are looking to grab yourself a top-of-the-line Android tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is hard to beat. The specs and feature-list (and display size) on this bad boy are second to none in the Android tablet world right now. Of course, the price is also so high it is second to none as well. Office Depot now has the new Sammy flagship tablet available on a preorder. It will "only" scorch your wallet for a measly $849.99...

What.... you can't take it with you?

Here's a spec recap for the The NotePro 12.2:
  • 12.2″ Super Clear LCD display, (resolution of 2560 x 1600)
  • 1.9GHz quad-core processor
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 9,500mAh battery
  • 8MP rear-facing shooter
  • 64GB of internal storage
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.4
  • Samsung's S Pen

The tablet will likely be shipping on February 13th. Sound off if this is in your future or let us know if it is simply too rich for your taste. Here's a link to the Office Depot preorder page in case you don't mind the steep price.

Update: This story is now official. Google will be selling Motorola to Lenovo. Here's a link to the official press statement from Google: Lenovo to Acquire Motorola Mobility from Google ? Investor Relations ? Google

This almost sounds like an April Fool's Joke, but we are nowhere near April. According to multiple reports from major news organizations like Reuters, CNBC and others, Lenovo may actually be in final talks with Google to purchase Motorola for $2.91 Billion USD. According to "sources close to the matter" this would be Lenovo's way of buying themselves into the lucrative but difficult to break into U.S. smartphone market. Here's a quote with more of the details,

Lenovo is in the final stages of talks to buy the Google division that includes smartphones Moto X and Moto G as well as certain patents, and an announcement could come as soon as Wednesday, the people said.

The Chinese firm will use a combination of cash and stock as well as deferred payments to finance the deal with Google, the people said, asking not to be named because the matter is not public.

Lenovo is being advised by Credit Suisse Group while Lazard Ltd advised Google on the transaction, the people said.
This came way out of left field and blind-sided us, but in many ways doesn't seem that surprising. From the beginning, Google really only wanted...

Google announced their newest upgrade to the Google Glass wearable smart-glasses, only this time it isn't a software or hardware upgrade, but is actually a structural one. They now have prescription glass frames available that are specifically designed to fit with Google Glass. They are called the Titanium Collection, and that doesn't just describe their aesthetics. These new Google Glass frames are literally made of ultra-light titanium alloys.

Their Titanium Collection includes "four feather-light titanium frames and two new styles of twist-on shades, designed just for you." Now you can consider getting Google Glass without worrying about looking like a full-blown dork, just a half-dork! (We kid about this because some of us here at HQ are actually becoming more intrigued by this device regardless of how it looks to other.)
