Acer Iconia Tab A510 is due to be seen in shops soon and why may this be of interest? Well, a low price tag will drive many sales but that’s not all, the power of the Tegra 3 Platform means this is not just any budget tablet, it’s very fast. It may look, dare we say a teeny bit dated, but when its performance is just below the iPad and Asus, then £350 seems great value for money.
Other news, HTC is apparently becoming the snob of the smart phone world, with the CEO Peter Chou saying they are not looking to produce cheap phones. Their strategy seems to be focused on the mid to high end market as they use quality materials and this is reflected in their brand. It’s not surprising a strong stance has to be made and with so many smart phones on the market, HTC may eventually become the brand to have, but they will have to battle past Apple and Samsung first, not an easy feat.
For the strangest bit of news that we all knew would eventually happen is, the Government snooping on emails. Apparently we’ll all be kept safe from harm if this was allowed to proceed, giving the police access to your internet history. Is this the even bigger big brother or completely necessary because of our changing lifestyles?
