Razer Edge takes PC gaming to new level Video Transcript
The hybrid PC gaming movement has begun. I'm Bridget Carey, and this is your CNET Update. The review is in for the Razer Edge gaming tablet. It's one of the most inventive PC gaming devices we've seen in years. It's a Windows 8 tablet that has the graphics processor of a gaming laptop and there are several accessories to buy that transform this tablet. There's a snap on game pad controller for gaming on the go, a dock with HDMI out and extra USB ports to connect it to your TV. And the company is also coming out with a keyboard accessory to make it more of a laptop. But all those accessories that make it unique will cost you. The tablet itself starts at a thousand dollars and you'll be adding on the $250 game pad case. That's a lot to pay when you consider that it doesn't have the top-end performance that you find in high-end gaming PCs you're paying for the unique ability to make it portable. It's also worth noting that the battery life run short when you're gaming and it's heavier than other Windows 8 tablets. But this could be the first in the new category of products for mobile pc gaming. You can check out the full review and the breakdown of the specs at cnet.com. Google has been busy this week with upgrades to several of its products. For one, Google Maps will show more live transit info, users can see several subway and bus departure times in New York and Salt Lake City and there are service alerts for Washington DC's metro rail. Google Maps now has transit info for 25 countries around the world, but Apple has yet to add any public transit info to its Maps app even Microsoft's Bing has public transit directions. The Google claim movies and TV app for Android. It now shows information about scenes you're watching like data on actors and what song is playing in the credits. Amazon is also doing the same thing on its video player for the Wii U and Kindle Fire. It's called X-Ray and it gives viewers instant access to the bios of the actors that are appearing in the scene you're watching. Google also starting to test a same-day delivery service for online shopping called Google Shopping Express. It's only for San Francisco residence right now, but the idea is that you would shop from one website to buy items for many retailers like Target, Walgreens, Toys R Us and even some food stores and then Google will deliver the items to you for the same day for free. iPhone and iPad users can relive the days of the Tamagotchi now with a free Tamagotchi life app. It's the same as the old-school toy that let you take care of a 16-bit virtual pet. But the app adds color and more features like being able to share details about your pet on Facebook. The app first came out on Android devices on Valentine's Day and has racked up more than 600,000 downloads. That's your tech news update. You can find more details at cnet.com/update.
