Why do you want to see an iShit homescreen? They all look the same.

>>30003690 That's my old TF201. I just found a trove of old screenies on my computer so I might as well post them. And yes, that's just a launcher.

>>30003841 I was considering upgrading but I really don't have a need for higher resolution, not really willing to lose any battery life. The wifi / gps on this unit isn't terrible so I'm waiting for tegra 4 to come out next year.

>>30003868 older one, looks similar though. wouldn't surprise me if you have this one as well.

24 min later 30003926 Anonymous
>>30003904 The main reason I upgraded was because I had several dead pixels. Also why I had that butt ugly pixel fixer on my homescreen. I'm really autistic about this sort of thing so I sold it and got a TF700. The tegra 4 looks like a real monster, my fear is that it might have come too late.

>>30003926 I'm kind of worried about that too, I was originally waiting for Tegra 3 to come out, but ended up buying the tf101 because it was delayed for too long, traded with cash for a prime a few months later. Hopefully nvidia learned something from tjat and releases tegra 4 on schedule. Excited for the nand controller upgrades.

>>30004006 It's not the delays I'm really worried about in this case, but the lateness of the final product. Considering that it has yet to be announced, and will probably be announced in february, it's likely that the actual devices which feature the t4 will be out only by mid 2013. By then, it's possible that ARM will refresh it's mali line with their new T600 GPUs paired with samsung's quad exynos a15s. With the T4's GeForce only 1.5x the power of a SGX554, it's sort of hard to say at the moment, but they might get some real competition upon release. But exciting new tech all around, which is good for everyone.

>>30004223 But the devices themselves won't come by then. If I remember correctly, it usually takes quite some time for the announced product to hit the shelves, typically to the tune of several months.

>>30004252 I think nvidia announced t3 in February 2011 and it was in the prime by December 2011

>>30004294 Damn, was it really that long? nVidia better push this one out much quicker or they'll be in hot water.

>>30004336 I researched it religiously when it was announced it they were having yeild issues with alot of the early batches. So ideally June 2013, more likely to see it around back to school season so oems can catch up.

Man... I've been considering getting a tablet in the coming months. I'm really wanting to start reading PDFs, and my D&D group is thinking of trying other systems, so a tablet would be really useful. Are there any recommendations? I'm also thinking of upgrading my cell phone soon, so I'm not sure if I should just get the S4 when it comes out and for-go getting a tablet all together. Pricing probably shouldn't go above $300, any suggestions guys?

1 hours later 30005011 Anonymous
>>30004973 If you're going to read PDFs, get a 10 inch tablet. 7 inch is small enough to where you'll constantly be scrolling around the pdf because pdf text isn't adjustable. For a budget of $300, look into the Asus Transformer TF300. Quad core tegra 3, 1280x720 10" screen, and about $350, you can find it cheaper on sale occasionally.

>>30005011 Figured I'd have to go for a larger tablet. I was eyeing up the Nexus 7, since it's not too expensive. I'll check out the TF300, thanks. Any idea if there's some new devices coming out in Jan/Feb?

>>30005011 Nexus 7 for 7" Agreed with the Transformer for a 10. The ASUS tablets are pretty sharp and are also coming down in price. That said, really go to a store and actually handle both (specifically hold both at chest level for at least one minute straight, as if you were laying down and reading) to get a feel for the weights. Text/document size is a non-factor either way.

>>30005195 it will work for that, it's just a page zoom type deal for adobe reader on android. If you manually set the zoom you're fine to read stuff like that on smaller tablets. That said, get the tf300 - it's basically a prime with better wifi and gps. I just saw it got an arch port the other day. I'm sure if you put an aosp rom on there it will run great.

>>30005912 They're all real space pics (of course processed and such). >apod.nasa.gov >http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap121101.html >Explanation: Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble -- maybe Macbeth should have consulted the Witch Head Nebula. The suggestively shaped reflection nebula is associated with the bright star Rigel in the constellation Orion. More formally known as IC 2118, the Witch Head Nebula spans about 50 light-years and is composed of interstellar dust grains reflecting Rigel's starlight. In this cosmic portrait, the blue color of the Witch Head Nebula and of the dust surrounding Rigel is caused not only by Rigel's intense blue starlight but because the dust grains scatter blue light more efficiently than red. The same physical process causes Earth's daytime sky to appear blue, although the scatterers in Earth's atmosphere are molecules of nitrogen and oxygen. Rigel, the Witch Head Nebula, and gas and dust that surrounds them lie about 800 light-years away.
