Forums Added for the Google Chromecast and Galaxy Tab 3

If the release of Android 4.3 and the new Nexus 7 didn’t do quite enough for you, yesterday’s Google event also marked the release of Google’s new Chromecast. The diminutive media streamer will work with many apps to deliver seamless media streaming from services like Netflix and Pandora. It also can mirror tabs that you have open on any desktop instance of Chrome. And at just $35, it may well be quite the steal, but that depends largely on third-party development to support streaming to the device. To help spur things along, we’ve given it a home here on the XDA forums.

The Galaxy Tab 3 family is comprised of three variants of differing screen sizes: 7″, 8″, and 10.1″. The 7″ and 8″ are relatively similar to their predecessors. However, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, which now sports the speedy dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor running at 1.6 GHz. The 8″ and 10.1″ models sport a resolution of 1280×800, while the 7″ model runs at 1024×600.

Have you already ordered your Chromecast? Do any of the Galaxy Tab 3 variants make you excited? Is the Intel Atom in the 10.1 wasted on such a low density screen? Let us know what you think in the comments below, and make sure to visit the newly created forums to get in on the action:

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
