The LG G Watch rumor craze seems to be only beginning. HP’s Chromebox is also entering the USA market, and Chuwi’s tablet may be among the best deals around.
Rumors of the LG G Watch being one of the Google IO gifts arose this morning. These Google IO giveaways tend to be launched soon after the event, making us believe the same fate would come to the Android Wear device.
New rumors go parallel with our suspicions, stating said wearable will launch on July 7th in the UK. The price is a bit vague right now, but the sources believe it will have a price lower than the Samsung Gear 2 Neo, which currently costs £169.99.
Opinion: We wouldn’t be holding our breath just yet, as these rumors are many times false, but the information makes much sense. £169.99 is also not a bad price for an Android Wear smartwatch!
Those looking for an affordable and convenient Chrome OS desktop can now look towards the HP Chromebox, which has just become available in the USA. It’s actually not a bad deal, unless you want to go for the $629 Intel Core i7 version.
The Intel Celeron version costs only $179 with 2 GB of RAM. Adding an extra 2 GB of RAM will only cost an extra $20. All are currently available straight from HP’s website, so take a look around and sign up for one if you are convinced.
Opinion: I still believe HP Chromeboxes can all be replaced by other Chromebooks, but we know these could be great options for offices, libraries, hotel lobbies and the like. Not to mention, $179 is a darn good price!
Nowadays it’s hard to believe any good tablet can be worth under $100. The Chuwi VX8 is an 8-inch tablet worth $80 (¥499). We are asking the same question you are thinking about – what’s the catch?
Of course, this device is far from being your high-end tablet, but the specs are pretty surprising for that low price. $80 can get you an 8-inch 1280x800p display, a 1.3Ghz MediaTek MT8127, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, 3MP/2MP cameras and a 4000 mAh battery.
Opinion: Not bad, guys. Not bad at all! For $80 you could do much worse. Its specs are very good, at least on paper. We assume you will find your usual hiccups and problems, though.
