Week in Review @PocketDroid


Another week passed, and it’s time for our weekly review. I was a bit late this week, but I’ll make it up.

At the beginning of the week, we heard that Samsung Galaxy Player 5.0 and 4.0 went on sale. Here’s a cut from the article:

The only difference between the two players is that they support two different screen sizes and cost respectively with the Galaxy 5.0 at $269.99 and the Galaxy 4.0 at $229.99.

The Motorola Droid RAZR was officially announced. Here’s what we said about that:

After all of the Ice-Cream Sandwich madness, we saw a promotional clip of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 Kal-El chipset. Here’s a part from the article:

Finally we get confirmation from NVIDIA that they named their future quad-core Kal-El processor, Tegra 3,through this promotional video clip leaked out on Youtube.

We’ve learnt from earlier leaked roadmap from NVIDIA about quad-core Kal-El and two brand new chipsets set for 2012-2013 codenamed “Wayne and Grey,”but we didn’t knew for sure until now if it will be called Tegra 3 or something else. Full article with video
