Education-focused tablet by Nintendo in the works

According to several tweets published by Nintendo software engineer Nando Monterazo, the company is hard at work creating an Android tablet with a focus on education. Judging from his writings, the Android slate is going to be used by kids, who will get access to various educational games.

Those games, naturally, will have classic Nintendo characters in them. However, Monterazo points out that old-school Nintendo games won’t be coming to the upcoming tablet. NES, Super Nintendo, and Game Boy games will not be available for the unnamed Nintendo tablet, as “educational games only” will be the focus.

Monterazo’s tweets have since been removed.

With the Nintendo Wii U gaming console not reaching its sales goals and struggling to compete with Sony and Microsoft, a logical step for the company would be to turn its attention to Android and iOS. While the Android tablet hasn’t been confirmed by Nintendo, it’s likely the company is working on one.

Tablet sales are at an all time high are expected to continue their growth going into 2014.

US-based online store sells tech for bitcoins only

Bitcoin is often written about but still most people have had no contact with it. A new online store BitcoinShop.US that just launched may finally start to change that. The store boasts 400 categories, among which are smartphones and accessories.

All phones – 202 at the time of this writing – are sold unlocked. Most of them seem to be from Sony and BLU, with a few Samsung, LG and HTC models.

If you’re one of the lucky people who have recently uncovered their long forgotten bitcoin wallets with coins bought on the cheap, this shop is a way to buy a shiny new Samsung Galaxy S4 for under a dollar.

If you haven’t bought or mined bitcoins though, the shop just makes things difficult. Bitcoin is very volatile – it was $200 recently, then jumped to $400 and for a short stint was $900, but is now dropping again.

So most phones cost 1 bitcoin or so, but that could have vastly different dollar values. This could be good or bad for the savvy buyer, but be careful – an 8GB Samsung Galaxy S (yes, the original) goes for almost as much as a Sony Xperia Z and the Xperia S costs as much as a Galaxy S4.

Anyway, if you’re one of those that bought thousands of bitcoins for 10 bucks, this store might be worthwhile as cashing out from bitcoins to dollars is a hassle. There’s free shipping for the continental US too.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 pricey but noteworthy

Product: Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Quick specs: 2.3 GHz Quad-Core Processor, Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean), S Pen, 3 GB RAM, 13 MP camera
USP: A does-it-all phablet
official price: `49,900
Best price: `45,185


If you’re not used to handling tablets, the first thing you notice about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is that it’s big, very big. This makes it a great phablet but it’s definitely not a pocket-friendly phone, in more ways than one. The device is jam-packed with specs and features and you’d have to be among the savviest of smartphone users to be able to capitalise on all of them.

Pros: The positives are many. From a massive 3 GB RAM and 3,200 mAh battery, to a crystal clear 13 MP camera and 5.7 inch full-HD Super Amoled screen, this phone packs quite a punch. The phone is fast and lets you run two apps simultaneously with its Multi Window feature quite efficiently. The S Pen is improved from the Note 2 and you could do fun things with it — doodle, convert hand-writing to text and even dial a phone number with just one click. Perhaps the best new feature is the back cover — with its faux leather finish it looks elegant and provides a firmer grip on the device. The phone can also be linked to the Galaxy Gear smart watch, though we didn’t have the opportunity to test that. The Note 3 retains the Note 2’s handy customisable multi-colour LED light to segregate all your notifications.

Cons: For a phone with such great memory and processor, it freezes quite often. Sometimes an app will hang causing the entire phone to freeze and this can get very annoying after the third occurrence. The battery doesn’t last for even a day and this can be remedied by rationed use of the apps, but why would you do that? Surprisingly, the handset also heats up after prolonged use for 2-3 hours, so be careful if you’re watching a movie or binge-viewing your favourite TV show on it. The touch can get a bit fitful and we had to tap app icons more than once to get them started.
