Samsung has just launched the Galaxy Player 5.8. If you can guess by the name it features a 5.8-inch (960×540) display. 5.8-inches is quite large, it makes the Galaxy S III’s 4.8-inch screen look small! The Galaxy Player 5.8 will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as well as the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
There has been a lot of Android news lately, especially with the release of the Nexus 7 from Google. With their low cost Android tablets are very popular, but are they just a novelty item or something that you can use to get real work done? After having my ASUS Transformer tablet for quite some time I believe you can be quite productive on an Android device. So I have put together a quick guide that highlights some great apps and products that you can use to be productive using your Android device.
Tablets are great and it seems over the past couple of years they have really caught on. Since most people do 80% of their daily computing tasks in “the browser” tablets are becoming many people’s main computing devices. They are less expensive than laptops, are easier to carry around and just look cool! One of the most common tasks on a tablet is checking and sending e-mail. Writing e-mails on a tablet can be a little annoying. Well our friends over at Geeks.com have sent us Logitech’s Tablet Keyboard that is made for Android 3.0+ devices. This small keyboard gives you the advantage of using a real keyboard with your tablet and even comes with a folding stand. The wireless keyboards from Geeks.com are always great so let’s check this one out!

Summer has just started so here are our favorite apps to make the best out of your summer!

I got into the Steam for Android beta and thought I would share some screenshots with our readers! The interface is pretty slick. I’m a little annoyed that it feels more like an iPhone app than an Android app, but hopefully it’ll improve in future versions.

Our focus this year for the Sony booth was the Japanese electronics giant’s new line of Android tablets. The Tablet S is a 9.7″ tablet with a unique wedged edge developed as the result of rigorous user testing and feedback.

The Tablet P is Sony’s newest design, a clamshell tablet with dual screens. For both, Sony used screen designs from its line of televisions in order to deliver the highest quality viewing experience. ThinkComputers’ Colin Dean speaks with Sony’s Otis Gates about this line of tablets.
