Gizmodo.de claims that the Nexus 6 will be a “lightweight” version of the G3. Well, what might that mean? Lightweight not meaning light on changes here, sadly rumors say that the stripping down would be in hardware, meaning a lower power SoC. Again, the report we are reading from is highly translated and we hope we are not reading too much between the lines but that does mean that plans are setting in place at the Google HQ.
Would u want a slightly less powerful Nexus?
The HTC Desire has a single and dual-SIM version, sports a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage, of course, expandable via microSD card. The screen is a 4.5-incher with FWVGA (480 x 854 pixels) display and there’s a 5 MP camera on the back without the flash. It is powered by Android 4.2.2 with HTC Sense on top of it, in addition to all the usual suspects, and a 2,000mAh battery.
Are you looking forward to this device?! The pricing is yet to be announced but this is pretty much an entry level handset!
With the app you can now read messages without opening the app, send and receive photos, stickers, basically everything that you can do with any other Facebook messenger. With the addition of this one, but essential client, the app-gap has become even smaller. However, to have this one, you must be running Windows Phone 8.
Well, a new report says today that the LG G3 would be announced in June this year, while as usual we ask you to take this with a grain of salt. There are no other details, though the rumor talks about a new type of display on the flagship. If the information above is accurate, we may see the much rumored flagship.
Did this news bring you excitement.
It is no secret that this MWC was a disappointment, since none of us got the innovations we were expecting. We were expecting more pixels and smartphones with 2K displays that no company delivered and now, its all about this company OPPO who actually believes in reveling the specs beforehand .
A leaked image taken by this phone according to the EXIF data claims that the resulting photo is of 8160×6120 resolution. If you do the math, this would require a 50 megapixel sensor in order to reproduce a photo of this size. Maybe its just a prototype or maybe they are afterall planning a crazy device like that, either ways the launch date is 19th March, lets have our fingers crossed for what we may come across, might be very surprising indeed !
There’s a lot to look forward to in the coming release of Windows Phone 8.1,one of the highlights being the Cortana voice-powered search, which is Microsoft’s answer to Siri and Google Now.
A key part of Cortana is its ability to save information and data in a Notebook system. Notebook will allow the Cortana digital assistant to access information such as location data, behaviors, personal information, reminders, and contact information. Instead of a Halo-style 3D avatar, Cortana will be represented by a pair of spinning blue circles.
Yes, you can also make Cortana speak your real name, and by “Master Chef”, just dont get it to your head though *wink*
Today we see a Nokia X handset running Google apps including the Google launcher and the Google Play Store. Android is crazy flexible as we know it, with some good amount of developer support, devices that forked, can fly!
Lenovo bought Ashton Kucher as a Product Engineer back in October, it really seemed obvious at the time that this relationship was more of a celebrity endorsement, although Ashton seemed serious about his work on Lenovo Yoga tablets and smartphones.
Recent news from the company says that both Lenovo and Ashton are working on limited edition devices that will be released later this year and since Ashton isn’t really an Engineer he’ll be helping the team out on designing the User Experience.
In an interview with Re/Code, Lenovo Chief Marketing Officer David Roman said, “I know on one level, it sounds corny, but it is real. He not only sees himself as an engineer, but he is an engineer. If he sees a problem, he wants to solve it.”
Would you like to see what comes out of this “special UI designing opinion”?
Ever since the company has announced it’s X series of smartphone running forked versions of Android, we all are left wondering about how Nokia got the WP specific Nokia Apps like Here Maps, Mix Radio, etc.
Clearly Nokia did not re-write the entire codes, what Nokia did was to use a special bit of software from a company called Xamarin that basically lets Windows Phone app run on Android. amarin are a company that specialize in bringing Microsoft’s .NET Framework to other platforms besides Windows. Its aim is to allow developers to write apps entirely in C# and share the same code on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.
Now that the Mix Radio app is running, Microsoft is looking forward to remove all legacy code from apps that it wants to port over to Android, so future apps will have the same shared code database!
Would you want to have more such apps on your Droid?
Google just announced that it will be hosting it’s first developer conference for the Project Ara soon on April 15-16, this would mark the start of an entire different league of smarphones that are highly upgradeable.
According to Google’s official Ara page, their goal with Ara is to ultimately make modern smartphone technology more accessible for the masses. Google’s Ara Project head Paul Eremenko has said it that to encourage a new trend of smartphones, the Ara could come to the market for as low as $50!
There’s a trick under the sleeve though, since it’s easily upgradeable, the $50 price tag would give the most basic version. We also know that the Ara would come in three sizes : mini, medium,jumbo. Are you interested in this smartphone?
