Google is taking the self-driving car to the next level – the cute one. We do have new devices, as well. Some are leaked, some are official, but they are all awesome!
Google’s self-driving cars continue to awe us, even though they have been real for quite some time now. Google has taken its science fiction product to the next level today, as they announce their new car. It is cute, it is driverless and has no pedals or steering wheel.
The car just takes care of the work by itself. Also, these cars are capped at 25 mph, so don’t worry about the car going nuts on you.
It is quite literally the self-driving car dream come true. Google is making 100 prototypes, and we will start seeing them around the streets of California. Google’s testers will soon be using them with manual controls. As for the rest of us – Google does plan to run a small pilot program within the next two years.
Opinion: Where do I sign up?!
We were all about the LG G3 yesterday, but it seems the Seoul event attendees got a bit more information than the rest of us. The company confirmed both the LG G Flex 2 and the Vu 4 are slated to be released during the second half of 2014.
That is all the information we get, though. Specs, design and features continue to be a mystery. We can expect the G Flex 2 to come with that iconic curve, though. The Vu 4 will probably be huge and offer that 4-by-3 screen ratio, as well.
Opinion: The LG G Flex was surprisingly good, with fair specs, a large display and interesting aesthetics. I am really looking forward to seeing what they have for us this year.
The HTC One M8 Ace has just been leaked again, but this time phone paparazzis caught the device dressed in red and blue. What is even more excited is that those ugly speaker grills are gone! These now appear minimized and simple, much like previous BoomSound implementations. It’s possible past leaks were just prototypes in progress.
Opinion: Now this is what we are talking about! A lower-end HTC One M8 with more affordable materials, yet the same gorgeous design we see in the flagship device. I am ready to hear more about this bad boy!
ASUS’ Padfone concepts are innovative and fun, but we rarely get to see them in the USA. This is why it’s so exciting to see AT&T taking the Padfone X by the hand and offering it to the crowd.
AT&T will have the smartphone/tablet hybrid available for pre-order starting June 6th. It will cost $199 with a two-year contract, but it does come with both the phone and the tablet. This makes for a pretty good price. You can also get it on AT&T’s NEXT program, with a $0 down payment.
Opinion: Now let’s move on to what really matters – is this the device for you? The device comes with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 5-inch 1080p display, so it is by no means a bad smartphone. I am surprised it costs only $200 and includes the tablet dock!
