For those of you who haven’t heard, we will be kicking off the Android Show tonight at 6pm PST/9pm EST. You may recognize the name, as it was the brain child of Mr. Scotty Brown. Scotty Brown has been an avid Android evangelist and audio/video personality for quite some time and you may remember him from Android Guys, Radio Android and Rootzwiki.
One of the first things you’ll want to set up on your new Android device is your email. Whether you only use one email account or several, being able to receive your email while mobile is one of the most important features of a smartphone. Since not everyone is a smartphone veteran, we’re going to show you the basics and get you started. Now, depending on which version of Android you’re running, things may look a bit different, but the concept is the same.
Did you know it’s possible to disable those annoying app notifications from within the App Info page on Jelly Bean? Well it is, and it’s a great feature. As more apps lean towards invading your notification bar, Android has taken action and made it possible for users to disable an app’s ability to show you notifications. It’s extremely easy to enable/disable this option and requires very few steps.
If you were watching NVIDIA’s live CES 2013 webcast event last night, then you should remember the sneak peek of Dead Trigger 2 teased during Project Shield gameplay. Dead Trigger has remained an undead staple among Android gamers and the sequel to this hit zombie shoot ’em up now has an official press release.
The moment I’ve been waiting for: the unveiling of the ASUS Qube. This once dongle-like instrument has taken on an entirely new form while becoming ASUS’s first Google TV set top box.
VIZIO announced plans to bring to the market two new Android tablets: one 7-inch Tegra 3 tablet and one 10-inch Tegra 4. The 7-inch Tegra 3 model is similar to the ASUS Nexus 7, with features including a 7-inch 1280×800 IPS display, 16GB storage, 1.2MP front-facing camera, Android 4.2 and Micro USB. While I think it’s a bit late in the game for this particular 7-inch model, VIZIO looks to have a winner on its hands with their 10-inch model.
Of all the announcements made by NVIDIA at CES 2013, the Tegra 4 was probably the least surprising. We knew it was coming, I mean, NVIDIA wasn’t going to use the Tegra 3 forever. As to be expected, the next iteration is both faster and more powerful without requiring more juice (would be odd if is wasn’t… right?)
