The thing with B&N is you never can guess what they are thinking. In fact I’m not so sure the higher-ups at B&N even have an idea of what they are doing with the Nook brand from one day to the next.
With less than a week to go before Barnes & Noble (which still includes Nook Media) reports on its last quarter bloodbath, they restore the desktop apps.
While Nathan wonders about the leadership over there, I have a bigger question: Did Microsoft decide not to acquire Nook Media?
We should know soon.
The article makes little sense but the picture says a lot:
While we’ve been marveling at the 17,000-range AnTuTu score of the Chuwi V88 iPad Mini clone and the 27,000-range AnTuTu score of the Samsung Galaxy S IV phone, Snapdragon is coming along to knock them flat.
I’ve already seen posts with the upcoming Sony Xperia ZU phone getting an AnTuTu score in the 32,000 range. Now the above two links show that same Snapdragon CPU going as high as 35,000.
Of course, a year from now, there will probably be a new generation of CPUs that break 50,000 or even 60,000.
Anyway, if you’ve been thinking about getting a Chinese iPad Mini clone, maybe it’d be better to wait a few months. There are bound to be name-brand eight-inch tablets with the new Snapdragon 800 in them. Who wouldn’t want all that speed?
