There’s no credit check, no finance charges and no interest. Prime membership is not required either.
As hard as Samsung tried to keep a tighter than usual lid on spills of information concerning unannounced Galaxy products, its four tablets to be released in Q1 2014 are no longer enigmas.
The highly anticipated Galaxy Note 12.2 was allegedly shown for the first time at a private event, with one attendee supplying the scoop to the media.
It’s no secret Samsung plans to take both CES and MWC 2014 by storm with a stack of new tablets, ranging from petite to gigantic and entry-level to high-end, but their number and identities are still a bone of contention.
While I can’t speak for others, one of the major reasons why I find tablets far more appealing than laptops is the equipment for recharging. All I need is the USB cord and I’m set. Laptops still have that thick, clunky brick that is forced to tag along with the rest of your gear.
Ugh, another Asus PadFone model? Don’t we have enough of these niche phone-cum-tablet hybrid gizmos out and about? Why, yes, we do, what with the Infinity 2 (aka “new” Infinity) and PadFone Mini recently unveiled, yet the PadFone X benchmarked through AnTuTu may actually be a big deal.

Last week, 2 million Facebook, Google, and Twitter passwords were stolen by hackers. Such stories seem to pop up every other month or so, which leads to the question of personal and account security. Passwords, even the stronger ones, are quickly becoming ill-effective for security and protection.
Microsoft kicked the holiday shopping season into gear in style last week, when it sold limited quantities of the Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet for an incredible $99, but the “12 Days of Deals” are still ongoing and they’re not losing steam.
Both Intel’s Haswell chips and Microsoft’s Windows 8.1 OS have been around long enough to become standard features for high-end and even mid-range computing machines, yet MSI’s S20 Slider 2 is anything but standard. Or boring.
CES 2014 is still more than three weeks away, but some may consider that a too short window of time to build enough buzz. So a number of key mobile and PC players have started the teasing already, including Asus, whose January 6 press event invite reads simply and intriguingly “In Search of Incredible”.
