Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2

Posted by Admin Tuesday, March 27, 2012

 Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2
The Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 4.2 looks like a mobile phone, but it is actually a compact Android tablet that follows on from last year's Galaxy S WiFi 4.0 and 5.0.
In essence, this really is a smartphone with the 3G / GSM circuitry and supporting software removed. That makes it much cheaper to make, although these days we suspect that the bulk of the cost is in paying licenses for the technology rather than the hardware itself. So if you don't want to use mobile cellular networks then this is obviously a good thing.

Apple iPad 3

Posted by Admin

The Apple iPad 3 is Apple's third-generation tablet, and it improves on what was already the tablet to beat with an impressive specification set. It is not as revolutionary or outlandish as some rumours were suggesting - this latest iPad is more of a logical evolution of the previous device, but it must leave competitors wondering how they are going to catch up.
 Apple iPad 3
The biggest change is perhaps not noticeable until you start using it - the iPad 3 now has a 1536 x 2048 pixel 9.7" display, with four times the pixel of the old iPads. As with the iPhone 4 and 4S, Apple call this a "retina display", meaning that the pixels are too small to see. The first iPad had a pretty much off-the-shelf panel that must have been very cheap to develop, but Apple can be sure that this new iPad will sell in enough quantities to justify creating a completely new class of display.
 Apple iPad 3 Inside is a dual-core Apple A5X processor with a four-core graphics GPU. We don't know how that will compare with some of the monster four-core CPU Android tablets coming up this year, but we suspect that Apple's design will be very competitive. Raw processing power is nice, but there's more to making a tablet than that.
On the back is a 5 megapixel camera (Apple call this the "iSight" camera) with a secondary "FaceTime" camera on the front for video calling. The iPad 2 had just 0.7 megapixels at the back but it could capture 720p HD video. The iPad 3's camera can capture 1080p video, but then Apple are also making a big deal of being able to edit digital images right on the iPad. Yes, the iPad 3 makes a really bulky camera, but it does mean that you can manipulate them straight away before emailing them off somewhere, and there are a number of other interesting built-in imaging features with a mass of related apps available to download as well.
Surprisingly, the iPad 3 is actually thicker than the old iPad 2, coming in at 9.4mm thick compared to 8.8mm for the iPad 2. In reality it isn't a big deal, but it is also about 10% heavier which is definitely going the wrong way, coming in at between 652 and 662 grams compared to 601 to 613 grams for the iPad 2.
 Apple iPad 3 As before, there's either a WiFi-only version or one that also supports cellular networks - we used to call that the 3G option, but (in the US at least) the new iPad is a 4G device capable of running on AT&T or Verizon's LTE networks. These versions are different from each other inasmuch as the Verizon one also has support for CDMA/EVDO in addition to the GSM/EDGE/HSPA+ support found on the AT&T one.
The operating system is iOS 5.1 which is just like iOS 5 except better. As well as countless improvements to the operating system, the iPad 3 also comes with a speech-to-text dictation system, but not the excellent Siri feature found on the iPhone 4S.
The iPad 3 is available with 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal flash memory. Inside is a 42.5 watt-hour battery capable of giving up to 10 hours of web surfing time on WiFi. The whole package measures 241 x 186 x 9.4mm.
Prices for the iPad 3 vary in the US, starting at $499 for the 16GB WiFi-only version, going up to $829 for the WiFi plus LTE 64GB version, that is about the same at the iPad 2's pricing. The good news is that the very capable iPad 2 is dropping in price by $100 and is now starting at $399.
Officially, Apple are calling this just the "new iPad" and not the iPad 3, although we suspect that the iPad 3, iPad HD or iPad 4G names will become a common way of differentiating it. The iPad 3 should start shipping in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Japan and some other territories from March 16th with many more European countries by the end of the month.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket

 Samsung Galaxy Pocket Expected 2012
14th March 2012

Some years ago - before touchscreen phones were all the rage - the trend with mobile phones was that they kept getting smaller and smaller with every generation. That was OK because most phones used to be pretty basic, but recent smartphone are more like computers and because you can do a lot more with them, then the display sizes have been getting bigger and bigger.

JCB have been dabbling in the phone market for a while, sometimes in partnership with others as with the Motorola DEFY+ JCB Edition and sometimes under their own brand, as with the original JCB TOUGHPHONE which was built by Sonim.
Their recent range appears to have been sourced from Power Idea Technologies of China who sell the same handsets to a variety of resellers worldwide. These simple but rugged devices have gained a pretty good reputation with users, and it's no surprise to see that at least two of the three new phones announced are from the same firm - the JCB Toughphone Sitemaster 2 and JCB Toughphone Sitemaster 3G.
 JCB Toughphone Range
Left to right: JCB Toughphone Sitemaster 2, Sitemaster 3G, Pro Smart.
The Sitemaster 2 is an IP67 certified GSM-only "candy bar" phone with a 2 megapixel camera, a torch and an FM radio. The Sitemaster 3G adds 3G support but is only specified to IP54, which is still pretty darned tough. These are both fairly basic devices, but certainly with enough features to get the job done in most cases.
The most interesting device is the JCB Toughphone Pro Smart, an IP67 certified Android 2.3.5 device with a 3.2” display, 5 megapixel camera and an 800 MHz processor. From the press photo we've seen, this is a pleasingly chunky device and is one of a very small number of rugged Android devices on the market. Again, JCB have bought this in from somewhere else (we don’t know where) and the exact same handset it also going to be available in other markets as the Caterpillar CAT B10.
These handsets look pretty good for a niche market. But do they go far enough? We feel that there's a real niche market for smartphones that are even more rugged than this. What about a rugged smartphone with a big screen and proper buttons or a tethered stylus so you can use it while wearing gloves? With a battery that will actually last a day on a charge? Yes, we know there are a couple of tablets like this, but something that can slip into a coat pocket would be nice. How about it, JCB?

 Apple iPhone

Huawei Ascend D Quad XL has crazy fast benchmarks

Huawei Ascend D Quad XL has crazy fast benchmarks
Benchmarks may not always have a lot of connection with real world performance because software still needs to be optimized, but they certainly do help to give fodder to people wanting to claim that their device is the best out there. In that fight, it looks like we have a new leader: the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL. 

Motorola registers
We are not sure what it means but Motorola Trademark Holdings has registered four domain names globally.,, and have been listed according to Whois. The big question, what exactly is Motorola Turn? It could be anything from a new smartphone to a new tablet or even a featurephone.

Nokia’s then and now photos remind us how mobile tech has impacted our lives
Today’s mobile technology is an intricate part of many our lives. Sometimes when we look back, it is hard to image how we ever got along without it, but we did. Nokia published a series of photos on its Facebook page today comparing the then and now for several common tasks and activities.

So how much better is the new iPad's new camera?
When the Apple iPad 2 released last year, we were wowed by the immense upgrade over its successor in the original iPad – and for some, it was a comforting sight to find the tablet finally boasting a camera in the rear. Naturally, the thought of shooting photos or videos with a tablet is still attached with this awkward stigma, but nonetheless, it’s simply nice having the option of doing that. However, it was soon quite evident that the iPad 2 didn’t offer the same level of comfort and quality found with its sibling in the iPhone. In fact, we were appalled by the grainy, faint details, and overall poor quality produced by the iPad 2’s less than 1-megapixel count camera.

Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G unboxing
Are you a T-Mobile customer that thinks the Samsung Galaxy S II is simply too big for you to handle? Well then, you ought to look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G. Although it’s technically still a part of the original Samsung Galaxy S series, it has been upgraded to make it

Back in February we reported that the Chinese version of Tango would be lacking a few features, notably, Twitter, Facebook, and Xbox Live. Today Chinese Windows Phone site, WPDang, is reporting that the Xbox Live feature hasn’t actually been removed, it is just hidden. With a slight workaround, the Xbox Live tile can be reinstated.

Nokia Lumia 800 number 2 with a bullet on Norwegian retailer's top ten list
The Nokia Lumia 800 has been a hot seller in Norway since it was launched there last month. As we recently told you, the Windows Phone flavored device was number 4 on the top ten handset sales chart for Netcom, a Norwegian carrier. According to Fredrik Gørrissen, Director of Telecommunications and Mobile at Microsoft Norway, the market share of the smartphone has been outstanding. Gørrissen says that at the country's largest electrical retailer, Elkjøp, the Nokia Lumia 800 is the second best selling handset throughout the 264 store chain. Elkjøp's top ten chart carries a lot of weight in the country as most Norwegian phone buyers purchase their handsets without a contract.

Rumored launch date for Sprint HTC One X, called the HTC Jet, is June 10th
On Saturday, we told you that there was speculation that Sprint would launch the Samsung GALAXY Nexus on April 15th. Today, the Sprint speculation continues. A source for S4GRU passed along the word that the HTC One X will be launched via the nation's third largest carrier on June 10th. The source says that internally, the device is codenamed the HTC Jet. (You might remember that the Samsung Jet was a featurephone that was supposed to be smarter than a smartphone).

Nokia 808 PureView Specs Review

Posted by Admin Tuesday, March 6, 2012 Nokia 808 PureView is among the smartphones that generated a lot of buzz during MWC 2012, and is still heavily discussed in the blogosphere. And rightfully so, as it packs the biggest and baddest camera sensor that has ever found itself inside of a smartphone so far – 41 megapixels, 1/1.2” in size. But camera aside, is there anything else that can make it stand out? Galaxy Pocket is a smartphone for budget-conscious consumers offering an 832MHz single-core processor and a 2.8-inch display with QVGA resolution. On its back it has a really basic fixed focus camera of 2 megapixels, and a 1,200mAh battery resides under its back cover. You also get a 3.6Mbps 3G radio, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, and 3 gigabytes of on-board storage. All of that is confined inside of a body with a thickness of 12 millimeters. The device itself tips the scale at the

LG Optimus L3

Posted by Admin

The first of LG's "L-Style" series of fashion smartphones, the LG Optimus L3 is a compact but not particularly powerful Android handset due to hit the shops later this month.
The main features with the Optimus L3 are a smallish 3.2" 240 x 320 pixel display and a 3 megapixel camera with an 800 MHz processor and 384MB of RAM plus 1GB of internal storage, we would hope that this comes with a microSD slot.
There's a relatively large 1500 mAh battery, and the Optimus L3 measures 103 x 62 x 12mm. It runs Android 2.3 and it comes with all the usual Android features such as 3.5G support, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth.
