Sony and Samsung have been doing a bad job at keeping their upcoming devices secret. Meanwhile, Dropbox is looking to take Google’s thunder with their new plan.
Sony just keeps outing what seems to be their upcoming tablet. Last time it was through an accessory manual, and this time their Xperia Z2 page accidentally made mention of a Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
Opinion: We don’t happen to know all the details right now, but we can assume this tablet will come in a smaller form factor. Probably under 10.1 inches, which is the standard size for their Xperia tablets.
While Samsung has yet to announce the Galaxy Mega 2, it seems retailer in Malaysia and Thailand just couldn’t wait and have started selling the device. Thai website Droid Sans has gotten a hold of one and we can get a close look at the 6-inch 720p display.
Specs do include a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4415 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, Android 4.4.4, an 8 MP camera and a 2800 mAh battery. Price and release date continue to be a mystery, but it’s said the device will cost about $425 when launched. You will also be able to choose between white and black versions.
Opinion: This is not a bad option for those looking to get a large display on a more affordable smartphone. That 720p resolution is sure to be noticeable in a 6-inch screen, though.
Dropbox has super-sized its Dropbox Pro plans with a price that will be much harder to compete with. Going straight for Google’s throat, this plan now offers a whole Terabyte for just $9.99 a month or $99.99 a year.
In addition to the space, Dropbox is putting their sharing controls and security features as main selling points. These include remote wipe, view-only permissions and more.
Opinion: The competition between Google Drive and Dropbox is about to get very fierce. Which service would you opt for?
