Google Nexus 7 tablet, a 7 inch HD Gaming Engine with Quad Core.


n e X u s 7

All Gamer’s and Tech Savvy’s, here’s good news for you all as Google’s Nexus 7, Developed and Branded by Asus is out !!

In Detail :

Just as Google’s developer conference was getting started, details of the company’s rumored Nexus 7 tablet emerged. As previously reported, it is a 7-inch tablet powered by a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor that will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and come in 8GB ($199) and 16GB versions ($249).

The display is true high-def — 1280×800, so a bit better than 720p — and there’s a front-facing 1.2-megapixel camera and microphone for video chatting, though there’s no rear-facing camera. It also has a micro USB port, GPS, near-field communication and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. There’s no mention of an SD card slot for expanding the memory, however.

Not surprisingly, it was built by Asus, the manufacturer that had already made the most headway with quad-core gamer-friendly Android tablets.

Clearly, at a starting price of $199, the Nexus 7 is positioned to compete with the similarly 7-inch Kindle Fire, rather than taking on the 9.7-inch iPad (and the 10.6-inch Surface tablet from Microsoft). And because, with all of those tablets, content seems to be the biggest incentive, Google is playing up the Play store, even granting early buyers $25 in Google Play credit and “some great free content” including “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.” Even if you don’t think any of the “Transformers” films is truly “great,” it is nice to see Google aggressively pushing content, even adding TV shows and magazines to their lineup. This is how Tablet buyers  get their reason to buy a tablet.

Update:

1) The leaks are coming fast and furious — Google’s Nexus Q A / V streamer has just been unveiled, and a short video that came along with it showed a white Nexus 7 device. While it might just be white for the style of the video, it wouldn’t surprise us to see the Nexus 7 come in two colors today.

2) The Nexus 7 page on Google Play is now live — we can confirm that the 8GB Nexus 7 will be priced at $199, while the 16GB model will cost $249. Both models should be shipping within two to three weeks.

3) Modaco.com just pulled up what looks to be the final Nexus 7 specs — as expected, the device will come in 8GB and 16GB variants, with a 1280 x 800 IPS display. It’ll also have a 1.2-megapixel, front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and a 4,325mAh battery. Unfortunately, the price didn’t leak, but we’re betting the earlier $199 / $249 rumors hold true here. It’s running a Tegra 3 processor, as rumored — and, of course, it’ll have Jelly Bean Android 4.1. Unfortunately, it looks like the Nexus 7 will be US-only, at least at launch.

Samsung GALAXY Beam Smartphone with Projector and a Dual Core CPU.


Its the MWC 2012, and Samsung has starting revealing its products starting of with the Galaxy Beam packing Android 2.3 and a 1GHz dual-core CPU. Just like its predecessor it brings an integrated projector capable of 15 lumens of brightness, enough to shoot a high definition image that’s up to 50 inches wide.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There is an inbuilt Projector which runs through a dedicated app that activates the projection, letting users pump out video and pictures, as well as interact with games when the 4-inch WVGA screen just isn’t big enough. It has a 2000 mAh battery to keep the party going — handy when you’re stuck somewhere inconvenient with a few dozen of your coworkers — 8GB of built-in storage and a claimed 6GB of RAM (as heard, though we’re double checking on that). There’s more details and specs in the Press Release after the break, but no word on release date or market availability of this HSPA phone just yet.

iPhone SJ: Fabulous Mockup Inspired by Steve Jobs


Will The Next Generation iPhone Look As Good As This Mockup?

Over the last few days there has been plenty of talk regarding the next generation iPad, but there seem to be only whispers about the next generation iPhone. As far as the design of the next iPhone, we don’t have much more than leaked “iPhone 5″ cases that appeared online prior to the iPhone 4S launch. While the leaked iPhone 5 cases seem to resemble the iPad 2, some people have a much different idea of what the next generation iPhone could look like.

Designer Antonio De Rosa has created this beautiful “iPhone SJ” mockup, which he states is “inspired by Steve Jobs.”

Totally glass capacitive screen on a polycarbonate lightweight body.
New design inspired by Steve Jobs, new core with A6 dual core processor, new camera 10 Mpx (sic).
A classic reinvented. Again.

I think this is a gorgeous vision of what the next iPhone could look like, but it seems unlikely to me. If Apple’s launch-redesign-upgrade-redesign-upgrade way of dishing out iDevices has taught us anything, it’s pretty much a given that the next iPhone will feature a new quad-core processor (A6?) and if we’re lucky, a 10 megapixel camera. The polycarbonate back in De Rosa’s design just looks too similar to the current iPhone models to be considered a redesign, in my opinion. Departing from the glass back of the iPhone 4/4S would be a necessary change to be considered “new” (think: iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4) and would give the iPhone a look like that of the iPad 2. Other than that, there isn’t much to fuel the fire of speculation.

What do you think of this design? Would you like the next iPhone to be even thinner than the iPhone 4S? Do you think glass or metal would be better for the back? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
