Transformer-tf502tIt looks like Asus has made the TF502T a reality. For the most part it is just a rebranding of the TF600T, but instead of a Windows RT OS, it now has Android 4.2.

Specs-wise the Asus TF502T a pretty good offering: 

  • NVIDA Tegra 3
  • 2GB of on-board RAM
  • 10-inch 1366 x 768 display – Super IPS with screen brightening technology and is protected by Corning Fit Glass – 178 degrees viewing angle
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth V4.0 and NFC
  • F/2.2 8MP camera with flash on back
  • 2MP camera on back
  • Includes four speakers along with ASUS’ SonicMaster technology – (stereo sound can be used in landscape and portrait modes)
  • 32GB or 64GB models

Of course, the tab can batch up with a dock that includes a keyboard. It also has its own battery which can charge the tablet’s internal battery when it drops to a set level. The tablet and dock combined have a battery life of 16 hours. Their website doesn’t offer a price yet, but we can expect something soon at Mobile World Congress.

An new Nexus 10 tablet gets the @evleaks treatment

Nexus 10Yet another scoop arrives from @evleaks. His latest is confirmation of a Samsung made Nexus 10 tablet. Not only did he list the specs for the device, he also made mention of Android 4.5. Of course, more than likely, it will be toward the middle of this year before this tablet is officially announced, so it shouldn’t come as any surprise that it will sport a new version of Android. The question remains, “Will it be simply an updated version of KitKat or will it be a completely new dessert?” 

Here’s the Nexus 10 specs he mentioned in his Tweet:

  • Samsung’s own Exynos 5
  • WQXGA Display (upgraded from the current model)
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16 or 32GB storage
  • 5MP/3MP Cameras
  • Android 4.5

Also, by chance it would appear the Nexus 10 is completely sold out on the Google Play Store at the moment. How odd…
