Dell was hardly making a name for itself in the smartphone / tablet space when they once decided to stop manufacturing them anymore.
Turns out the engineers at Dell were busy cooking a recipe so fine that one may just drool over it. Dell has just partnered with Intel to launch the world’s thinnest tablet. This new Android-based tablet is the Dell Venue 8 7000, and according to the launch information, the device is just 6 mm thick. If you compare it to Apple’s thinnest iPad mini, we’re talking about a 1.22 mm difference in thickness.
Specs aren’t known yet, but we shall keep you posted.
One of the major issues that owners were complaining about was about the loss of audio over certain bluetooth headsets. Hopefully none of that would be happening now. Additionally, there are some security patches part of Android 4.4.4. There aren’t any changes regarding the user interface of any other features of the phone.
Additionally if you feel like manually flashing the .zip file then one may do that if waiting for an update is not your cup of tea.
It comes in three categories – the usual Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition. The key difference being in the straps and 18 karat gold plating. All will have changeable wristbands, ceramic backs and sapphire screens. Six different bands will be available at launch.
Apple says that they needed to introduce a whole new UI and a new way to interact with a device this small and hence the digital crown. The digital crown can be rotated to zoom into various elements on the screen. The touchscreen can be used to interact and scroll through. One can use Siri for voice dictation and can even use the built in heart rate sensor to send across the “vibrating pulse” feeling to a fellow Apple Watch user.
The Watch will cost $350 and will be available only in early 2015. iPhone 4S and below owners aren’t covered.
India has historically never been on the forefront when it comes to release dates but this time the difference isn’t much compared to what folks in India are used to. This time the difference is the shortest so far and hence people looking forward to it shall be pleased to know this.

The screen is protected by “Ion-strengthened glass”, which is curved around the edges for a more seamless experience when swiping. The screen itself is an LCD with “Retina HD,” which translates to 750 x 1,334 pixels. This pushes the pixel density to 348ppi.
Apple has retained the same 8MP resolution on its iSight camera. The sensor is slightly larger now and there’s no OIS though, it relies on digital stabilization. The camera can shoot panoramas up to 43MP. The Apple A8 chip is what keeps the iPhone 6 powered and it is 25% powerful compared to the last generation chip. Other connectivity upgrades include Wi-Fi 802.11ac for three times faster Wi-Fi speeds. Finally, there’s also NFC now, which enables Apple’s new Apple Pay service for wireless payments.
Apple also announced the iPhone 6 Plus which is the 5.5inch version of the iPhone 6. It comes with a 5.5inch Retina HD display as Apple likes to call it – coming in at a resolution of 1920*1080 pixels.
The back of the iPhone 6 Plus is made of anodized aluminum and the stainless steel frame of the phone ensures its rigidity. Apple says that they have optimized iOS 8 to take advantage of the bigger screen so that apps can stretch seamlessly with their split-screen interface that helps take advantage of that extra screen real estate.
Everything else including the camera and the host of connectivity options are the same as the iPhone 6. iPhone 6 Plus pre-orders commence on September 12 and shipments being a week later, on September 19.
Just two months after its launch, Amazon has slashed the prices of the Fire Phone by 200 dollars. The phone now costs just 99 cents with a two-year contract, complete with a year of Amazon Prime membership and various other cloud services included. Anyone who bought the phone at launch would have paid $199.
The exact reason driving this is unclear but analysts say that the reason may purely be poor sales figures. The timing may also be a big indication – Amazon has announced this just a day before the announcement of the iPhone 6. Amazon has said they have similar plans for Europe as well.
