Opinion: This is not a bad deal for a smartphone with a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 4.7-inch 720p display. Not to mention, Motorola has been doing an amazing job at updating smartphones.
HTC’s retirement from the tablet market seems to have been temporary, and now they are jumping into the market with both feet in. Current rumors involve what could be a new Nexus tablets, the Flounder and Volantis.
If @evleaks is to be believed, the Taiwanese manufacturer could be launching another 2 tablets, the T7 and T12. Other details and specs are not available yet, but it could be assumed their numbers are relative to screen sizes.
Opinion: It’s odd to see HTC taking another jab at the tablet market. It would certainly be interesting to see a 12-inch tablet. HTC’s expertise in manufacturing strong devices would also be a great contribution to today’s market.
Gionee is not willing to compromise or stay ordinary. The Chinese manufacturer continues to break boundaries, and a new device has just impressed us with what could be the thinnest profiles we have ever seen.
The Gionee GN9005 has passed TENAA certification, sporting an impressive 5mm. in thickness. It also weighs a mere 94.6 mm, which is definitely something to be proud of. Specs are also said to include a 4.8-inch 720p display, a 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, Android 4.3 and more.
Opinion: I like my phones having a good weight and build quality, something these super thin smartphones usually lack, This could be a great device for the thin phone lovers, though!
