  • ASUS FonePad reaches certification, may meld an Atom tablet with Android

    ASUS FonePad tablet pops up in certification, may meld Atom with Android

    No, not PadFone. FonePad. According to Indonesia’s wireless regulator Postel, ASUS is trying to certify a FonePad K004 tablet that would switch up device names, not to mention create its fair share of mix-ups. But what is it? Based on that K004 codename and a match with a Thai retailer’s listing, Notebook Italia believes it’s none other than the recently leaked ME371MG, an Atom Z2420-based, 7-inch tablet that would run Jelly Bean. It might also carry 3G and justify its name through built-in phone functionality. We’re skeptical when the specs aren’t confirmed, and don’t entirely line up — there’s just 8GB of space in the retail entry versus the originally claimed 16GB, as an example. If there’s any fuel to the fire, however, the new round of MeMo Pads will eventually have some Intel-powered (if confusingly-named) company.

  • Droid RAZR M ‘blue steel edition’ now available at Best Buy

    Droid Razr M

    What’s black and white and pink all over? Well, not too long ago, the answer to that was the Droid RAZR M. As of today, however, Motorola’s nearly bezel-less Jelly Bean handset will also be pretty in platinum. Available as a special edition for Best Buy, the Verizon-locked device has been given a steely makeover, but that’s not to say the M’s been scrubbed of all its flair. Turn the phone on its side and you’ll note its hardware keys now pop with a blue hue. Apart from the cosmetic overhaul, not much else on the 4.3-inch device has changed. So, if you’re still game for a solid Android mid-ranger, you can snag this freshly embellished phone for $50 on a two-year contract at the source below.
