Nexus 9 Gets A Second Unboxing

First look: Google Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player (unboxing)

Nexus9Lil001

I haven’t had a chance to test the new Nexus 9 extensively, but I’m already trying to figure out if I can justify spending $399 on a tablet for reading comic books. I’ve been using my Nexus 7 with Marvel Unlimited and other digital comic apps for a while, but the screen’s really a little too small. Comics look amazing on the Nexus 9’s larger display.

See the video at the above link.

Three Videos: Teclast X98 3G Air

TX983GAirYT001

I posted one of his prior videos, in which he compared it to the Onda V975w.

It turns out he got rid of the Onda. It had poor battery life compared to the Teclast.

China Tablets: New 4G Ones In November

There are indications from Onda and Vido that a bunch of new 4G-enabled (likely China-compatible only) will be released next month.

November 11 — 11/11 — is Singles Day in China. It’s the biggest online shopping day in the world.

Tablet makers are already beginning to hint at upcoming 11/11 sales. It’s probably also why Five Technology will be releasing the iFive Air next week — to get in on the 11/11 buying frenzy.

For some more information about the plans of Vido, see the post at PadHz [Google Translate].

Xiaomi Testing Cheap-Ass Tablet They Should Never Release

Xiaomi may be building a 9.2 inch budget tablet

The tablet is said to feature a 9.2 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor with Adreno 306 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and about 8GB of storage.

If that’s Xiaomi’s upcoming big announcement, I’d be very, very disappointed.

They placed a bet on 4:3. Lei Jun even came out “volunteering” himself as leader in Android tablets, issuing a manifesto!

And they would drop that position to introduce a tablet that basically Chuwi, Onda, or Teclast could release?

When you take a damn stand, stick.

Xiaomi Poaches Spotify’s Donovan Sung To Lead International Product Development

Now that it’s apparently the third largest smartphone maker in the world, China’s Xiaomi needs experienced heads to help it build its business outside of Asia. And that’s exactly what it’s getting. TechCrunch understands that the company has completed a significant international hire, poaching Donovan Sung, who was Spotify’s first product manager in the US, to run its international product development team in a role based out of Beijing.

That’s interesting. Liwan Jiang, a co-founder who wrote the book about Xiaomi (not Lei Jun as I originally thought), has moved from China to Silicon Valley on a mysterious product development journey.

That Yi HD home security camera Xiaomi is selling gets an unboxing, setup, and test over at the Mi Forum [Google Translate].

And another pimp image has been released for whatever the hell it is Xiaomi plans to announce this Saturday(!), November 1. See it after the break.

Teclast X98 Air 3G Dual-System User Reports, Again

Weibo:

Teclast again pimps user reports of the Teclast X98 Air 3G Dual-System at its forum (use Chrome or Bing Translator). This time they’ve provided a handy list of what I’m sure are the most complimentary posts — none of which I’ve read.
