Two tablet leaks prove to be false

Two tablet leaks prove to be false
Even Joe DiMaggio struck out now and then. His Royal Leaker evleaks went 0-2 yesterday, and instead of glossing over it, Mr. Leaks took responsibility, even admitting that one of the hoaxes was perpetrated by a 14 year old boy who pretended to be a Google employee. We are not at all trying to point this out to embarrass the serial leaker. Unfortunately, it is the nature of the beast.

The tips involved included one that seemed to reveal that OnePlus was working on a tablet to go alongside its OnePlus One handset. A heading on the top of the OnePlus website said OnePlus Tab. But OnePlus sent a message to evleaks, informing him that the picture he received was photoshopped, and that the company has no plans to produce a slate.

The second fake tablet was the HTC Volantis, which was rumored to be the next Nexus device offered by Google. This was supposedly a high-end slate powered by a 64-bit NVIDIA K1 chip, featuring an 8.9 inch screen with resolution of 2560 x 1600. That tip was accompanied by an image of the slate, which as it turned out, was provided by a 14-year old boy pretending to be a Google employee. Too bad.

This is why we remind you to take certain stories with a grain of salt, because  you never know when someone's intentions are not honorable.

In other news, a supposed Bigfoot encounter was disproven by DNA evidence. And nobody was surprised.

If samsung would have heard of this leak.. then we can hope seeing a device with such specification as soon as this year.! ;)

You're disappointed? Seriously? I'm sorry, but anyone who thought a 5GB RAM Android tablet might actually be a reality when a 4GB RAM Android device has yet to exist probably just doesn't know much about tech. 4GB of RAM will be a huge milestone for Android. Once a device with that much RAM debuts, I don't see an increase happening very soon after that.

If it was 64-bit then 5GB of RAM would be possible...

21. g2a5b0e unregistered

The fact that it's possible doesn't mean it would happen. I'm sure you'd believe it if they had said 13GB of RAM as well, right? If that's the case, I have some prime real estate up in the Yukon Territories I'd like to sell ya, hey...

Oneplus is a false company itself

So EV could have made up even more BS, like the OnePlus One+1 being the brand new phone with the 805 chip that OnePlus is working on and will have ready in October, and no one would even know :)

tktechnews will go with anything you put in front of him. just a week ago he had three sources from both ends of the country telling him there was a lost shipment and that moto was going to release all gadgets at i/o. the guy is an idiot.
