Whatever Asus does it does it in style. Asus the Taiwanese Electronic giant is back with a bang. So what the Asus is going to release in what we call a revolutionary in the field of the display as well as the tablet technology. We all know how the ‘youm‘ display from Samsung caught the eyes of the tech enthusiasts . Though Youm failed to enter the market as a finished product. Asus recently posted the Computex 2013 teaser video . The video showed what new products Asus would launch this year.
First of all what caught my attention is the dual sided display hybrid tab from Asus (That’s a long inherited category) . The tab is a like a normal laptop with keyboard but when screen button is pressed the display from other side gets activated .Then the screen could be detached to use it like a tab. Pretty cool isn’t it? It basically reminded me of cool tab that Robert Downey Jr used in Iron Man. One could clearly see that its a Windows device (Windows 8 OS) though we expected an Android device(like the previous Transformer). Specs about the tab are yet to be reveled, but still that cool tab is buzzing all around the internet.
Tab with Stylus
Sketch on Tab with Stylus
Another tab that was showcased in the trailer was the 7 incher tab with a stylus. Yes a tab with a stylus (Now that’s what I call competing to Samsung). It seems to be an Android device. Yet again the specs will be revealed on Asus Comptutex June 2013. So waiting for it is the only option for us. Lets see if Asus could makes some ripple in the sea after the mega storm of Google IO 2013(AndroidNova will provide live coverage towards Google IO).

Samsung will launch two Galaxy ‘Mega’ smartphones this year
Our friendly blog SamMobile is reporting that Samsung is planning to launch two ‘Galaxy Mega’ smartphones this year. Apparently the Korean manufacturer has decided to name its upcoming giant-screen phone as Galaxy Mega, which will join company’s Note-series in the battle for phablets.
According to the report, Samsung will introduce 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch display phones in this Mega series and the 5.8-inch GT-9152 is likely to support dual-SIM connectivity (Duos Branding). There seems to be no information about 6.3-inch GT-I9200 dual-SIM version.
SamMobile adds that Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 will be sold in white colour and will be available around (May 27 – June 2), while Galaxy Mega 6.3 will come in both black and white colours around the week 25 (June 17- June 23).
Samsung successfully started and accomplished their sales by introducing the trend of super-large screen smartphones with original Galaxy Note, which was later joined by Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Grand and now the company seems to be taking it to a new level. It remains to be seen whether consumers will indeed be interested in smartphone with a display as large as 6.3-inches.We don’t know how much is Samsung going to stretch the Display sizes on its device.We hope so apparel/garment manufacturers make the shirt/ pants pockets big enough, so that our 6.8 inch phablet can easily fit in them,without causing much discomfort to its users.
