ASUS made the ZenFone AR and ZenFone 3 Zoom official this week at CES, filling in all of the blanks left from Monday’s leak that we wrote about. The ZenFone AR will deliver the first Snapdragon 821-powered augmented and virtual reality experience, while the Zoom 3 features a massive 5,000mAh battery and large dual-rear cameras. (more…)
We are still a day away from the official beginning of CES, at least for media, but that won’t ever stop the internet from digging up whatever it can find and sharing it. Detailed by Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter, ASUS will introduce the ZenFone AR smartphone this week, which will be the second Google Tango device available on the market. (more…)
This may be last minute, but I think we’ve found the Cyber Monday deal of the day over at Amazon. The ASUS OnHub, Google’s Nexus-like take on a WiFi router that likely helped birth the idea behind Google WiFi, can be yours for just $89.99. That’s $110 off.
What is OnHub? It really is like the Nexus of routers in that Google created this smart WiFi platform, but had other people build the hardware. In this case, it was ASUS, but TP-Link also created one for Google. These routers are controlled via app, are dead simple in terms of control and setup, offer help and solutions when thinks get wonky with your internet, get smarter with automatic software updates, can automate parts of your home through IFTTT, and will work with Google WiFi units to turn your home into the ultimate mesh WiFi network.

The ZenWatch 3, which may be the only anticipated Android Wear smartwatch release for the end of 2016, launches next month in November. This watch was unveiled in late August, but at the time, ASUS stated it would launch in October. Apparently, that is no longer the case.
The ZenWatch 3 will cost only $229, which is quite the bargain when stacked against comparable smartwatches. (more…)
A new ASUS tablet is available exclusively at Verizon starting today, the ZenPad Z10. Featuring an extremely thin body (0.28″), coupled with a large 9.7-inch “2K” display (2048 x 1536), the ZenPad Z10 is a nice looking tablet.
Complete with radios capable of connecting to Verizon’s LTE-A network, users can hopefully breeze through their work thanks to a Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor and 3GB of RAM. Additional specs include 32GB of built-in storage, USB Type-C, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera (5MP on front), 7,800mAh battery, microSD slot for up to 128GB of storage, and Android 6.0.1 “Marshmallow.” (more…)
