Yes, so plenty of people are still buzzing about the Samsung Galaxy S3, but instead of looking at vaporware (at least until the end of May for those living in Europe), why not shift your attention to something more concrete – like the 16GB Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 for instance? This particular tablet is now available for an online pre-order over at retailers such as Office Depot, where you will need to drop $399 for this puppy, or take a walk to the nearest store carrying it when May 13th rolls around. Just to refresh your memory on what the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will carry within, we are talking about an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device which will feature a 1,280 x 800 resolution display that does 1080p video without missing a beat, Bluetooth connectivity, a microSD memory card slot for expansion purposes, improved speakers and up to 50GB of free space on Dropbox – at least for the first year.By Ubergizmo.

Sometime yesterday, Microsoft put up an eye-opening post about its Media Center and Windows 8. It talked a lot about how the application itself would be used with the upcoming Microsoft OS but the key point about the post is that the native DVD or Blu-ray playback will not be supported.
I don’t know about you, but I kind of fear for Nintendo in the next round of home console wars – Sony and Microsoft are certainly doing all they can to deliver on the graphical front, not to mention offer an engaging array of other entertainment options on their respective consoles at this moment, so one can only expect a natural progression of something better in the future iteration. How about Nintendo? Clearly lagging behind in terms of hardware performance and capability, the Wii U seems to concentrate more on the gaming experience instead of offering drop dead gorgeous graphics. Only time will tell whether this is a fatal mistake or just a slight annoyance, but we do know that the Wii U’s controller comes with a built-in rechargeable battery, so it makes sense that a charging dock is in the works.

Ever wished that you were a Jedi over the years? Come on now, there is no reason to be shy to admit to that. Those who have a stronger connection to Star Wars might even have built up their collection of lightsaber toys, but how about commemorating Star Wars Day with the LaserSaber from Wicked Lasers? This unique $100 device will be attached to the Spyder 3-class green and blue lasers from Wicked Lasers, turning it into a unique lightsaber clone. The only thing that is missing from the entire experience? The classic lightsaber hum, so I guess you will either have to use your imagination in this matter, or to make up your own special effects as you swing your LaserSaber around, imagining you’re cutting down enemy droids by the hundreds.

We did mention that Nokia will launch tablets and hybrid smart mobile devices in the future yesterday, but apparently, that is not the true story. Apparently, a Nokia spokesman has been alerted to the situation, and some firefighting was required to quell all rumors, denying what outgoing Chairman Jorma Ollila suggested, and quickly debunked all that was shared with the Financial Times, claiming that Nokia is currently watching the tablet market ?with interest.? To put it succinctly, Keith Nowak, a Nokia spokesman, said, ?What Mr. Ollila said has been misconstrued a bit. As we have been saying, we are watching the space with interest, but have made no announcements regarding a tablet product.? (more…)By Ubergizmo.

When it comes to driving games, the graphical performance in terms of hardware as well as software programming have certainly come a long way from its early 2D days, where you can now opt to view your rear view mirror as well as the side mirrors, but such peripheral vision does not feel that real no thanks to the nature of a flat display that we see in most living rooms today. If you have the cash to spare in addition to risking the wrath of your other half, then you might want to consider planting the TL1 simulator from Motion Simulator right smack in the middle of the living room, as this system relies on a trio of high definition projectors, delivering a complete view of the virtual track ahead.

In conjunction with Minecraft?s release for the Xbox 360 in just a few days, Mojang has launched a new trailer to show off the new features that will be available on the console version of the game. Although the game has been in the works for quite some time now, the time it seems is already close at hand. With the May 9th release in the crosshair of all fans of the game, the official trailer which has just come off the conveyor belt showcases features like split-screen co-op mode. This time around, it seems that Mojang has placed the most emphasis on the ?sharing? feature. And you will know what I mean when you see the trailer embedded above for your viewing convenience.
Most of us would have thought of our Nintendo DS (whether it is the original, ugly looking DS, the sleek and sexy DS Lite, or the 3DS, it does not matter) as the bomb in terms of the sheer number of hours of enjoyment that it has delivered over the years. Well, it seems that a patent application filed by Nintendo showed off the DS in a new light, one that is not meant for gaming, but rather, to promote and enhance a tourist’s experience in a new place. Just what does this patent application involve? For starters, it will beam the position of the DS to an overhead grid of infrared transmitters, where the DS will then communicate wirelessly to a server which will in turn light up floor displays with maps and directions, letting the DS user choose the route of their choice. Seems to be the perfect tool for tourists at a museum or some other public area who cannot afford a tour guide, but have a spare DS in hand.By Ubergizmo.

The latest Battlefield 3 patch was released a few weeks back and it was apparently one that many gamers were on tenterhooks for. The update apparently fixed a lot of issues and balanced out many things in the game. Despite that, there are many different opinions about the patch from many different people all of which have something else to say with regards to it.
