A new mercenary joins the fray in Google’s war efforts for domination of your house. It’s the Google Assistant with a screen and the search engine giant’s answer to Amazon’s Echo Show. Lenovo teamed up with Google on this and although it doesn’t have the sexiest of names, it has all the hallmarks of a “Made by Google” device, which is great. Meet the Lenovo Smart Display.
Y’know, because it’s a display and it’s smart.
When you think business, you think ThinkPad. And their X1 series of devices represent some of the best no-frills laptop experiences in the world. This year, Lenovo’s making them even better than before.

It’s all about the flare now. Laptops need to look cool, feel cool and have cool features that aren’t necessarily useful (I’m looking at you, Touch Bar) in order to appeal to the mass market, to appeal to that group of people who want to feel like they’re one of the elite. What about those of us who want all the performance, but without the frills?

Our love of robots has best been displayed throughout the films and TV shows that have captured our hearts. Be it scary or adorable, we’ve come to know that they play an integral role despite not actually “being” human.
Across our screens, we’ve seen lovable and iconic characters like WALL-E, Iron Giant, C-3PO, R2-D2 and most recently, BB-8. Though advancements in technology as finally gifted us our own personal droid; hats off to Sphero, they made miniature BB-8s real.
But as of today, the makers have just shown off a prototype wearable at CES 2016 that takes it a step further, allowing you to control your BB-8 with the Force!

Every year there’s a lot that goes on at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) and while the mobile-focused side of things has moved (slightly) away from Las Vegas convention, it’ll always be about tech.
You’d hardly expect to see anything about “print” there since we’re talking about the digital age but LG hopes to bring back the newspaper; just in a way you never thought possible.
Motorola’s upcoming super tablet, Xoom has its specs officially revealed on Motorola’s site. So it is now official that there will be a GSM, CDMA and a WiFi only version to choose from. You’ll get all you need to know about the Xoom from the screen, processor and down to the OpenGL extensions. Check out the full spec details here.
The other not so good news is that Motorola is pricing the Xoom at US$800 which they felt that its upgradability to 4G speeds of 50Mbps would justify such price tag. That’s roughly about RM2400 before all the tax and shipping cost to reach here. However the WiFi only version is said to be priced lower to match the iPad at about $599 (approx. RM1800). So, US$200 extra just to upgrade to 4G? That’s a little bit too much, don’t you think?
Considering that Apple normally reduces its prices for each new generation, let’s just see if the iPad 2 is good enough to force a price war on these Android tablets.
The deal maker for us is the tablet specific Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS, you can take a look at all the demo videos here and here. The Android developers have done a great job in making the Android OS work for a tablet and for the looks of the video, its a really good looking OS.
Motorola says the Xoom is fully upgradable to 4G but it’s not something that the user can do at home. TO upgrade the Xoom to 4G the user will need to take it back to service centre, and since 4G in this instance is LTE, don’t expect this feature to be available here.
There’s also a mention of a radical “floating finger” interface, we’re not too sure what this is but we sure can’t wait to get our hands on one.
Join us after the jump the official video of the Motorola Xoom, some press pics and full press release.
We’re less than a week away to the most anticipated gadget showcase of the year. CES 2011 is just around the corner and one of the many devices people are looking forward to see is the Motorola tablet.
Interestingly, it has been revealed that Motorola have applied to trademark the term “Xoom” in the US, Canada, Australia, EU, Taiwan and New Zealand. It is just an educated guess at this moment but such a far reaching trademark application suggests that the name will be used for a device that will make its debut at CES and all eyes are looking at the teased Motorola tablet.
There is no confirmed specs yet for the tablet but the following are expected:
On the other hand, it could be a trademark name for something else altogether. We’ll just have to wait and see. Just four more days people. Keep it locked on to SoyaCincau.com for the latest updates on CES 2011.
Dual-core is the talk of the mobile town in 2011 with Motorola gearing up to debut it Honeycomb running, dual-core totting tablet at CES. And then we have the LG Optimus 2X, a thoroughly fast Android phone featuring the NVIDIA Tegra 2 in its hardware arsenal. So its a pretty safe bet that most, if not all of the upcoming high-end devices coming in 2011 will be running dual-core processors.
Word has it that Samsung will also make a major showing at CES with unveiling of updated versions of two of its most successful devices, the Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab. These updated versions are expected to run NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor with Honeycomb.
Considering the possibility of its competitors now running dual-core processors, can we expect Apple to feature similar hardware in its upcoming iPad 2 and the next iteration of the iPhone? Could be very likely.
In any case, we’ll be monitoring the developments at CES like a hawk, so keep it locked on to SoyaCincau.com for the latest updates.
