SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 20, 2012
settlement talks between both companies apparently didn’t go anywhere.
The Samsung Galaxy S II Plus showed its face again today, complete with a 1.5GHz dual-core Exynos processor, and we were even given a glimpse on the Nikon Coolpix S800c Android-based camera. Samsung announced the GALAXY S DUOS, which features dual-SIM functionality but appears to be a tad underpowered with the Galaxy S III at the scene. We received another picture of the subsequent iPhone’s reported new dock connector, and we got a closer idea of what OnLive will seem like moving forward. Unfortunately, it feels like HTC could be losing loads of cash now that OnLive have been bought out, which is not excellent news for the already-struggling company.
The Nintendo 3DS XL has finally arrived in North America, and plenty of Motorola DROID RAZR HD tutorial videos were spotted before quickly being taken down. Hulu’s CEO is perhaps exiting the corporate sometime next month, the Galaxy Note 10.1 have been given a lovely excellent score by the people at iFixit, and pieces of Amelia Earhart’s plane can have been discovered off the coast of an island within the Pacific. Netflix has in no time added 1 million subscribers inside the UK and Ireland, while Barnes and Noble said it will become launching new devices within the UK this autumn. Grand Theft Auto V got a round of latest screenshots today, though they did not show much, and Sony announced that the PS Vita has passed 2.2 million sales worldwide since launch.
NASA announced the subsequent Discovery mission today: InSight, for you to be headed to Mars in 2016, while the Hubble Telescope gave us an image of 2 star clusters which are on a collision course with each other. a brand new Android threat called SMSZombie has hit 500,000 phones in China, and it’s particularly hard to eradicate, while today the Curiosity rover laser-blasted its first Martian rock. Star Wars here we come.
Finally tonight, we’ve got a number of original articles with a purpose to look into, like this review of the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE and this column explaining why you may take a pass at the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, that’s supposedly getting a reveal at IFA 2012. Benefit from the remainder of your evening, folks!
