Sony Xperia E Release date and specs

1 comments
Sony Xperia E is an affordable and compact for today's standards featuring Sony's recognizable design language. The stand-out feature Sony wants us to note in the Xperia E is HD Voice, the purpose of which is to noticeably boost the sound quality of phone calls. When it comes to specs, the Xperia E will deliver a mid-range experience with its 3.5" HVGA touchscreen and 1GHz processor. Let's hope that Jelly Bean's Project Butter will help get rid of the lag. Sony also claims that we'll be surprised by the battery life of the device. The 1500 mAh battery will benefit from a special extended stand-by mode designed to increase overall battery life. Basically, when the phone's sleeping, it will disable all functions except for calling and messaging, and once you wake it up, all functions will be restored to their normal state. Of course, users will be able to enjoy Sony's "Walkman" music experience, as well as the xLOUD sound technology, which works really well in most Sony smartphones.



Sony has unveiled a new budget handset in the Xperia E, which will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The smartphone, scheduled for a release during Q1 2013, sports a 3.5-inch HVGA 480x320 pixel resolution LCD, which should deliver a pixel density of about 165 pixels-per-inch.

Powering the device is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7227A single-core processor, alongside 512MB of RAM and an Adreno 200 graphics processing unit.

As well as the the re-branded TimeScape UI, now known as the Sony UI, and 4GB of internal storage space with a MicroSD expansion slot, the Xperia E features a rear-facing 3.2-megapixel camera.

Sony has particularly singled out the device's xLOUD audio technology and 3D surround sound support, accompanied by HD voice and noise cancellation.

A 1,530mAh battery pack delivers up to 530 hours on standby or six hours of talk-time, Sony said. The smartphone itself will be available in black, white and pink.

If we find out more about an exact release date or pricing we will let you know. Would you buy the Xperia E or E dual for about $200 without a contract ?

Release date: Q1 2013

Galaxy Note™ II Smart Dock Avilable

1 comments

Overview

The Samsung Galaxy Smart Dock makes it easy to take advantage your phone’s high-speed internet connectivity and super-fast processor. Connect an HD monitor, external storage device, and USB keyboard and mouse to turn your smartphone into a productivity powerhouse. Make messaging, editing documents and accessing media files a breeze. Plug in your 3.5mm stereo audio components or speakers and you have the ultimate pocket-sized home theater and computer in one.


 With its 5.5-inch screen, the Galaxy Note II terminal is already the most productivity-oriented product, but Samsung goes further by revealing the "Smart Dock" docking station.


While Motorola has recently announced the abandonment of the solution Webtop inaugurated on the Atrix, Samsung takes more or less the same estate.

The "Galaxy Note II Smart Dock" is actually similar to the "HD Multimedia Dock". It allows to connect the monitor, keyboard, mouse and other peripherals to the smartphone. The Android is displayed in full and it is not a Linux environment. It's less embarrassing than the time of the Atrix, since Android 4.1 Jelly Bean adapts well to high definition.

features

3.5mm Stereo Out
Stream stereo sound to your speakers or stereo components.
HDMI™ Out
Work, play or view media on large monitors and HD TVs Standard USB Out (X3) Connect compatible keyboards, mice, external storage and other input devices.
Versatility
Functions whether or not a Flip Cover and most slim case options are installed.
Fully Functional
Your phone is fully functional while charging in the Smart Dock. Watch your handset stream news, local weather, or just play with your apps…all while charging!

Apple iOS 6.1 Takes a Step Closer to Release

0 comments

Those who are part of Apple's developers program received the third beta of iOS 6.1 today. This new version will likely be available to the public soon.

Developers report that there are no dramatic changes coming in iOS 6.1. Among the more notable changes: Apple is carrying out its promise to improve the Maps navigation software, there are small enhancements to the Safari web browser, and Passbook's system for handling boarding passes is getting new features.

Apple could release this update at any time it feels it has sufficiently de-bugged it. It's possible the company might wait until some big event, like the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in early January, however.

Apple's usual practice is to introduce iOS updates for all supported devices at once, including iPhones and iPads.

Unlocked Apple iPhone 5 Now Available

1 comments

Those in the U.S. who would like Apple's latest smartphone but aren't into commitment or contracts can now buy an unlocked version of the iPhone 5.

Unlike the units sold by telecoms, this version can be used with any GSM carrier just be inserting a micro-SIM card. This includes AT&T, T-Mobile, and many more. Apple warns it doesn't support every type of 4G LTE, however.

Phones that are sold through carriers with contracts are subsidized -- the carrier reduces the up-front cost and gradually makes its money back from the service fees paid by customers. When devices are sold without contracts, there are no subsidies.

That's why the contract-free version of the iPhone 5 with 16GB of storage is $700, not $200. The 32GB version is $800, and the 64GB is $900.

This smartphone has been on the market for two months, but is only now being made available unlocked because demand for the carrier versions has been so strong that Apple couldn't make units fast enough, while there were also production problems.

LG Optimus 4X HD review

0 comments

LG’s Optimus 4X HD is the company’s new flagship handset, and it’s certainly not messing around with the specifications. There’s a 4.7in 1,280x720 IPS screen, an Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and an eight-megapixel camera with a backlit sensor. This puts it up against top-of-the-range phones – such as the HTC One X and award-winning Samsung Galaxy S3.

The 4X HD doesn’t look as fancy as the One X and S3; instead of a curved screen and rounded pebble shape you get a more standard rounded rectangle. It’s easy to maintain a solid hold on the phone thanks to a textured back, and two parallel chromed plastic ridges around the edge provide grip for your thumb and fingers. The outside of the phone is sparse, with just a power button, volume rocker, headphone jack and Micro USB port; you don’t get a dedicated camera button, and have to pop the back cover off to get at the microSD card slot.
The 4.7in screen takes up most of the front of the phone, and it’s an impressive display. There’s no AMOLED display, as on the Galaxy S3, but it is a superior IPS-type LCD. There’s slightly less contrast than on the Galaxy S3, but the operating system, photos and videos still look great; the screen is definitely a match for the IPS model on the HTC One X. The 1,280x720 resolution is the same as that of the One X and Galaxy S3, and gives a pixel density of 313 pixels-per-inch – comparable to the 312 of the One X and 306 of the Galaxy S3. You can’t see the pixels, at any rate, and we can’t imagine anyone having any complaints about the display.
LG has heavily customised the handset’s Android 4.0 operating system. Many of the icons are LG’s own, and they’re big, bright and colourful, and work well with the large, high-resolution screen. Like stock Android 4.0, the main app screen is divided into Apps and Widgets, but the 4X HD also gives you a separate section for the apps you have downloaded.

There are some useful preinstalled apps. LG’s own video player has a preview which lets you scan through videos with a picture-in-picture box without leaving your current place. You can also pinch-to-zoom and pan around while a video is playing. The SmartShare DLNA app lets you play back media files stored on DLNA servers, and also control playback on other DLNA devices from the phone. The only app we didn’t get on with was LG’s own email app; it wouldn’t let us connect to our company Exchange server due to a problem with SSL certificates – most Android email apps have the option to accept all SSL certificates, so getting around our Exchange server’s quirks, but this is absent from LG’s app.

iPhone 5S / iPhone 6 patent-inspired concept revealed

0 comments

Apple's iPhone 5S / iPhone 6 may have been revealed early, if this render is anything to go by. A graphic designer has turned to Apple's patent portfolio to produce 3D rendered images that guess at the design, features and functionality of the company's next-generation iPhone.

Designed to replace the current-generation iPhone 5, it's no secret that Apple is working on the iPhone 6 - but, as is traditional, the company is playing its cards close to its chest, refusing to divulge details ahead of launch for fear of damaging sales of its existing iPhone models.

To whet fans' appetites, InventHelp's Nickolay Lamm has scoured Apple's portfolio of patents for recent filings that may point to research carried out for the iPhone 6's design, using them to provide details to a graphic designer to produce product renders that offer a glimpse of one possible direction the company may be taking for the smartphone.
"I feel that the sales success of the iPhone 5 overlooks the fact that it was a pretty boring phone," Lamm said. "I looked at all of Apple’s recent patents and chose four which Apple may include in the iPhone 6 or later version. I then hired a 3D graphic designer to illustrate each of these patents so that the illustrations were as realistic as possible. I gave him very specific guidelines to follow."


The designer, Matteo Gianni, has generated the photo-realistic images based on Apple's current design ethos, and has based their technologies on patents recently filed by the company. Some features, however, are more likely than others: the suggestion that Apple's iOS platform will get integrated augmented reality functionality, dubbed 'Transparent Mode,' seems more than believable, but the suggestion that the iPhone 6 will feature a hybrid LCD and E Ink display, capable of being viewed in full sunlight and boosting battery life considerably, seems less so given how recent the company's patent on the matter is.

Other suggested product features include a 'smart bezel' which moves controls to the edge of the screen, meaning it's possible to use the phone without obscuring the display with your fingers, and an integral projector - a feature already making its way to rival devices.

Nokia Lumia 900 Review

0 comments

Let me start off this review by saying that the Nokia Lumia 900 is what the Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 7.5 should have been. The Nokia Lumia 800 felt like a rush job and Nokia Lumia 900 felt just right. Unfortunately, Microsoft just killed all the current Windows Phones out in the market with the announcement of Windows Phone 8 by saying that all current Windows Phone will not be upgradable to Windows Phone 8 and that includes the Nokia Lumia series.

If you are still interested in getting a Nokia Lumia 900, it is currently retailing for SGD$849 (including taxes & without contract) at all 3 operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub) in Singapore. I do hope that Nokia have some sort of attractive trade-in offers for current Lumia owners to upgrade to a new Lumia with Windows Phone 8 that will be announced at Nokia World 2012 (wild guess).
