Walmart Launches Trio Of Cheap Android Tablets

Walmart Launches Trio Of Cheap Android Tablets


It was reported not too long ago that Walmart would soon launch its own-brand cheap Android tablets that would compete with Amazon’s Fire tablets which have long been the gold standard of cheap Android tablets. Released under its in-house Onn brand, Walmart is selling one 8 inch and two 10.1 inch tablets. Prices start at just $64.

The 8 inch model is understandably the cheapest at $64. There’s a 10.1 inch model for $79 while another 10.1 inch model comes with a detachable keyboard for $99. The specs are fairly low with all three tablets sporting a 800×1280 pixel resolution display, a 1.3GHz quadcore processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage. There’s even a 2 megapixel rear and 0.3 megapixel front camera.

The Last Of Us 2, Death Stranding Expected To Launch For The Ps4

The Last Of Us 2, Death Stranding Expected To Launch For The PS4

Thankfully, the good news is that Sony isn’t doing that. During Sony’s 2019 corporate strategy meeting, the company outlined how the PS4 played a critical role in their strategy, and that they expect that the console “will remain the engine of engagement and profitability for the next three years”.

The presentation was also accompanied by placeholder box art images of games such as The Last Of Us 2 and Death Stranding, hinting that both these games are still very much expected to launch on the PS4, and not the PS5 as previously rumored. It is possible that those games could be launched on both consoles, but if you’re not planning on upgrading just yet, their launch on the PS4 is good news.

Fujifilm Gfx100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Fujifilm GFX100 Medium Format Mirrorless Camera Announced

Several years ago, Fujifilm decided to dive into the medium format camera market by launching the Fujifilm GFX 50S. The company has since released new models and successors since, but this could possibly be the company’s biggest update to yet. Fujifilm has announced a new mirrorless camera in the form of the GFX100.

This will be part of the GFX medium format lineup (although we’re not sure if this will replace the GFX 50 series or it will exist alongside it), but it will be a camera with a whopping 102MP sensor. Given the megapixel count, there is a very good chance that this camera is aimed more at professionals who have the need for such a camera, rather than your average photographer or enthusiast.

These Are The Rumored Specs Of The Canon EOS 90D

While mirrorless cameras are all the rage these days, we understand that there might be some photographers who still prefer the heft, size, and features of a DSLR. If you’re looking for a new DSLR and want something less expensive than a professional-grade camera but want something better than an entry-level device, then Canon might have something for you.

According to a report from Canon Rumors, they have managed to get their hands on the alleged specs of the upcoming Canon EOS 90D. This is the successor to the EOS 80D which was launched back in 2016, which means that now is as good a time as any for Canon to introduce a new camera to its mid-range lineup.

Oneplus 3 And 3t Finally Get Android 9 Pie Update

OnePlus 3 And 3T Finally Get Android 9 Pie Update


It’s not common for Android devices to get more than two major OS updates. So when a device is released, it will only be supported for two major OS updates in most cases. There have been deviations from the norm in a few cases but the two year cutoff is more or less the norm in the industry. You can imagine how happy OnePlus would have made its customers when it announced that it would update the OnePlus 3 and 3T with Android 9 Pie. The company has followed through on that promise today.

The OnePlus 3 and 3T are now receiving their Android 9 Pie update today. This is the third major Android OS update for the device. The OnePlus 3 series was released by the company in 2016. It’s now rolling out Android 9 Pie for both devices.

Sony Will Keep Making Smartphones But Only For Four Markets

Sony Will Keep Making Smartphones But Only For Four Markets


Sony’s Xperia smartphone business has been losing money for quite some time now. Despite rumors that the company was looking to give up on the business altogether, Sony has reiterated its commitment to making smartphones, but will only be selling them in four markets going forward. It’s exiting all of the other markets for a more sustainable approach to the business.

Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida said that the Xperia smartphone business is a pivotal part of Sony’s identity which is entertainment focused. “We see smartphones as hardware for entertainment and a component necessary to make our hardware brand sustainable,” pointing out that younger generations no longer watch TV, “their first touch point is smartphone.”

Tor Browser Launched For Android, Brings Private Internet Browsing

Tor Browser Launched For Android, Brings Private Internet Browsing

Browsers like Google’s Chrome have a feature called Incognito Mode which is meant to help keep your browsing sessions private. However, sometimes that doesn’t always work as intended and that there is still some work to be done to ensure a truly private browsing session. However, if you don’t mind using an alternative browser, then you might be interested to learn that the Tor Browser has officially launched for Android.

The Tor Browser for Android has been in the works for a while with its alpha released back in September last year. However, the Tor Project has announced that the first stable release is now available on Android and for those who are interested, they can go ahead and take the browser for a spin

Sony Confirms Twisted Metal Tv Series Is In Development

Sony Confirms Twisted Metal TV Series Is In Development

This was confirmed during an investor relations presentation where Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra was quoted as saying, “We have a TV show we just agreed to get underway that will be developed from the IP on PlayStation, it’s called Twisted Metal. It’s a game that was put out many years ago and we’re going to develop a TV series around that.”

He does not mention any other details about the series, such as who will be directing it, who will be writing the script, who are the cast, and most important of all, when will it be released. However, the fact that a series is being made is pretty exciting on its own. This is because of the nature of the game which is vehicular combat, which we suppose for a slightly more modern reference, you could think of it as being similar to the Death Race movie, or maybe a more violent version of Rocket League.

Huawei Could Launch Its Android Alternative By The Fall

Huawei Could Launch Its Android Alternative By The Fall


It has often been reported that Huawei is developing its own operating system as an alternative to Android should its license for Google’s operating system ever be revoked. Due to the recent trade restrictions imposed by the United States on China, Google did suspend Huawei’s Android support and so there’s more talk now of the company’s Android alternative.

A new report suggests that Huawei will be in a position to launch it as early as the fall this year. Huawei hasn’t confirmed on its own when it’s planning to launch its own operating system for smartphones. The CEO of Huawei’s consumer business Richard Yu has reportedly revealed in a private WeChat group that the company will be able to launch its Android alternative by the fall this year.

Sony Shows Demo Of Playstation 5 Load Times

Sony Shows Demo Of PlayStation 5 Load Times


Sony may not be coming to E3 in 2019 but the company has been revealing bits and pieces of information about the next-generation gaming console that it’s working on. It has previously been confirmed that the PlayStation 5 will feature SSD storage, 3D audio, and 8K graphics support in addition to backward compatibility with current PS4 games. Sony has now provided a demo of the PlayStation 5 load times and they’re impressive, to say the least.

The shift from HDD to SSD storage would have understandably contributed to the improvement in load times but one also has to factor in the other hardware improvements which will speed up load times significantly.

Adobe Premiere Rush For Android Is Finally Out

Adobe Premiere Rush For Android Is Finally Out


Adobe Premiere Rush is essentially a trimmed version of its Premiere Pro and Audition tools that are meant for serious video editors. The company first released the Premiere Rush app for iOS, Windows, and Mac late last year. It said at that time that the app will eventually be released for Android. Adobe Premiere Rush for Android is finally rolling out today.

Adobe has created Premiere Rush to provide mobile users with advanced video editing tools. The idea is that the app should be able to fulfill the needs of those who just want to make casual edits to their footage but when the need arises, could make some proper edits as well.

Sony Launches Studio To Create Movies Out Of Playstation Games Itself

Sony Launches Studio To Create Movies Out Of PlayStation Games Itself


Sony has had to work with other media companies when it wanted to make shows based on its vast library of PlayStation games. The company is now switching gears by setting up its own studio which will allow Sony to quickly adapt its PlayStation games into TV shows and movies on its own. This new division is called PlayStation Productions.

PlayStation Productions is overseen by Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Chairman of Worldwide Studios Shawn Layden. The studio will be tasked with developing and producing projects that are based on Sony’s vast library of PlayStation games.

Sony Launches New XB900N Headphones To Compete With Beats


Sony’s XB or Extra Bass lineup of headphones has long been viewed as a competitor to Beats headphones. As the name suggests, they provide deeper bass with great sound quality. The company today unveiled a new pair of wireless headphones, the XB900N, to further compete with similar products from Beats.

The new XB900N have a style that’s not unlike Sony’s well-received WH-1000MX3 headphones. They even feature the same digital noise cancellation technology in addition to Bluetooth support for pairing with your devices.
