Xiaomi, ASUS and AT&T are working hard to bring you their latest products. Meanwhile, the Silicon Valley crew is taking some time to nerd out with us.
Xiaomi devices are awesome and affordable, but they are hard to come by. Today they are announcing availability of Xiaomi devices is expanding in at least one market, though – India. Aside from being offered by Flipkart, Snapdeal and Amazon India, users can get these highly acclaimed products from The Mobile Store and Airtel.
By the way, these happen to be regular, brick and mortar, retail stores. This would be the first time Xiaomi is officially offered offline outside of China, if we are not mistaken.
Opinion: Can you bring Xiaomi devices to the USA already?! Come on!
AT&T has announced an exclusive launch of the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 LTE, a pocketable tablet that should keep the casual user content. Availability starts on April 10th and it will be offered for a mere $175 off contract, so this is really one hell of a deal.
The tablet sports a 7-inch 1280x800p display, a 1.3 GHz quad-core Intel processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and more.
Opinion: I can’t believe you can really get a data-connected tablet for that price. I mean, the specs are pretty basic, but this should take care of all your stuff relatively well. You can probably do some casual gaming with it.
So we all know everyone and their mothers watch Game of Thrones, right? I don’t care what you like or what kind of person you are, Game of Thrones is an amazing show. Chances are even your favorite celebrities watch this show, and you can bet the guys from Silicon Valley do.
In fact, they are teasing the return of Game of Thrones (and I guess also the return of Silicon Valley) by talking about what could be happening next in the show. They look forward to seeing Sansa finally doing her own thing, and also think back on a very bloody wedding.
Opinion: I happen to love both shows, so I geeked out super hard here. I know this is not necessarily about mobile, but I wanted to share something geeky we might enjoy together.
