MDM Product Roundup – Vol 22 No 20

Acer has added Intel’s fifth-generation Broadwell processors to its Travelmate P645-S ultrabooks. The new units can have Core i5 or i7 processors and are available in the USA now, starting at $950.

Asus will launch its Zenfone 2 (Asus Swims Against Current With Mobile Announcements) in the USA at an event in New York, on the 18th May.

We have also heard that Asus has updated its Zenboox UX305 with a special model (UX305 Limited Edition). Rather than 1920 x 1080, the LE version has 3200 x 1800 resolution. The processor has also been upgraded to the Core M-5Y71, (1.2GHz base clock) and storage has been doubled, to 512GB. The notebook can be purchased now, for $1,000. Only 200 were made available in the USA, with the matte white finish. An identical model, presumably in a different colour (Asus said that the Crystal White model would be US-exclusive), was also showing up on Asus’ UK website, but quantities are likely to be limited.

LG‘s G Watch Urbane (Wearables and Smartphones Are The Focus for LG) is now on sale in the USA. It costs $350.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A (Samsung’s Tab A is Low-Cost With Large-Screen) will be launched in the UK on 21st May.
