Nook HD—catch fire again in tablet market

    In 2010 or 2011, when we talk about tablet, Ipad seems the only one occur to our mind. Ipad seems the king of tablet market and on one else could threat it until meet android tablet’s  uneven rise in this year. Samsung’s Galaxy series, Nexus 7 come from google and Amazon’s Kindle fire HD+, all of those ones share the tablet market and led to increasing competition in the area. Now Nook HD also join the fight. This affordable tablet comes with main stream hardware and also light and smart. 

   The Nook HD is a 7.7inch tablet starts at $199 for 8GB model and the 9 inch Nook HD+ starts at $269 for 16GB model. Both tablets would shipping in the October.
  The Nook HD+ meanwhile has a larger 9.5-inch display, which packs a whopping 1,920x1280 pixels. Under its bonnet a 1.5GHz dual-core processor keeps things ticking along nicely, while Barnes and Noble reckons this is the lightest full HD tablet ever created -- it weighs a mere 515g. Both tablets are powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Barnes & Noble aimed to improve those specs with its own Nook HD. At first glance, the most obvious enhancement over the older Nook line is the HD's crisper screen. The 7-inch Nook HD features a screen resolution of 1440 x 900 and supports 1080p video; Barnes & Noble says that's 25% more pixels than the Kindle Fire HD. The 9-inch version of the new Nook is 1920 x 1280 (which falls short of the iPad's resolution) and plays 720p video.

  To take advantage of the improved screen resolution, Barnes & Noble is launching Nook Video. Users can buy or stream content in either HD or standard definition, and a representative said the prices will be "comparable" to other a la carte services. Nook Video will also be available as an app for use across several devices.

Kindle Fire HD:Amazon's Counter Attack

  Today we got the long-anticipated Kindle Fire 2, to be exact, the new Kindle Fire named Kindle Fire HD. Yes, the all-new Kindle Fire offering 3 versions with the price from $199 to $499 which make the small size tablet market more interesting, Nexus 7 meet a robust rival, and the high level version would also trouble Ipad.
Kindle Fire HD details:

  Amazon clearly learned lessons and made change to previous generation to offering the 7inch and 8.9inch tablet with price from $199 to $499. That’s a fairly large-span on the tablet market, it offer more choice both in 7 inch and 10 inch tablet line. Nexus7 might never dominate in the 7 inch and $200 rank tablet market, on the other hand, ipad3 and the upcoming ipad mini would also under their influence. Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HD, to some extent, set the price level of tablet market. It would be a counter attack of Amazon

IPhone 5 Event- one week countdown

  After long long time wait and endless rumors about this fantastic gizmo, this Wednesday we have a likely release date of Iphone5. Apple has officially announced a September 12 press event in San Francisco, and we know that new devices would release, the wait almost over. The invitation says, "It's almost here," and shows the number 12, whose shadow forms the number 5. This, of course, refers to the rumored iPhone 5.

After months of rumors about iphone5, Apple confirmed that it would indeed be publishing some new products on next Wednesday, 12nd Sep. All of us hope that the Iphone5 would be the star of the event with revolutionary design.  Here, we have a week waiting time, let make a finally guess about what this iphone would bring to us.

Almost confirmed :
New design
We could confirm that Iphone5 would have new design, Longer and thinner with 4-inch screen as many rumor says. This screen could be manufactured using "in-cell" technology, a method of creating an even thinner all-in-one touch screen without any added layers The thinner 4 inch screen would enable an extra row of icons on the home screen. Black and white color scheme and the new one would return to metal back.

Iphone5 back

New Dock
New 8 pin connector would replace the old 30 pin port, It's time for a smaller connector standard: the space-wasting, dust-collecting 30-pin port on the bottom of iPhones and iPads is an old legacy connector, and many connections are now made via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or NFC. A new 8-pin port will take up less space.

Iphone5 dock

iOS 6
That’s no doubt that new Iphone would running with iOS6 which apple demonstrated at its WWDC in june. iOS has lots of new features available for iphone4s, but some primo features of iOS6 will only available on the new iPhone and iPad, turn by turn navigation is one of those new features and next Siri would be on the list.

NFC(Near-Field Communication), a technology increasingly show up in other cellphone like Galaxy S3. We have reason to believe that iphoen5 wouldn’t miss this attractive feature.


New camera
Iphone have made good job in camera both on iphone4 and 4s, few user have any complaints about the camera of iphone. We could almost say that iphone has did its best in this area, so we couldn’t confirm that is there any update(multiburst, improved multifocus, or better flash) of the old 8m camera. With all the other new iPhone features, advancements in camera tech could take a year off.

ATIV S: The First Windows8 Smartphone

Samsung announced new windows8 based devices this weekend at the IFA trade show in Berlin, first windows8 smartphone ATIV S, Samsung’s 11.6 inch ATIV smart PC, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was also unveiled.
Atvi smart PC

Galaxy note 2The galaxy note 2 which increases the screen size to 5.5", adds a quad-core CPU, the Android 4.1 (a.k.a. Jelly Bean) operating system, a battery more than 20% larger, and an improved S Pen, all in a package that is only slightly larger than its predecessor and weighs just two additional grams.
 Video converter tool for Galalxy note 2
 If galaxy note 2 is just a update, the announces windows8 phone is the main focus of this show.
And just a quick glance at its specs sheet is enough for us to conclude that we are dealing with a top-tier device. The new Microsoft-sanctioned smartphone offers a 4.8-inch screen with an HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU, 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front-facing cam. Additionally, it's got a beefy 2,300mAh battery, 1GB RAM, Gorilla Glass 2 and will come in both 16 and 32GB flavors. At 8.7mm, it's also reasonably thin.
1.    1.5 GHZ dual-core Qualcomm CPU
CPU is the heart of every smartphone, and the one that beats inside the Samsung Ativ S is a powerful one indeed. Like all Windows Phone 8 devices expected to be announced in the near future, the Ativ S is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and backed up by 1GB of RAM. Older Windows Phone devices could not handle dual-core, which is why seeing such potent piece of silicon inside the first WP8 handset is such a big deal.
2.    4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display 
In addition to being the first Windows Phone handset to equip a dual-core processor, the Samsung Ativ S is also the first to be equipped with an HD display. In this case, the screen uses Samsung's tried and tested Super AMOLED technology. Spread all those dots across 4.8 inches of display real estate and you get a really high pixel density – exceeding the 300ppi mark, for sharp visuals and smooth curves.
3.    8 Megapixel camera
The Samsung Ativ S is equipped with an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, and an LED flash has been added for those times when light just isn't enough. We can only guess what photos taken with it will look like, yet a high-end device like this should be capable of delivering photos well above what the average handset can produce.
4.    Windows8 OS
Windows Phone 8 takes care of many limitations that plagued its predecessor and adds plenty of more-than-welcome improvements, both on the outside and on the inside of the platform. For starters, there's the redesigned home screen that can host live tiles of more sizes and of different colors, not to mention that there is more information that they can contain. Also, the mobile platform shares the same core with its desktop counterpart, which should help developers port their PC software to WP8. Let us not forget that Internet Explorer 10 comes included with improved JavaScript and HTML5 handling.
5.    WP8-friendly MicroSD slot
This might not seem very important to us, but for a fraction of users, having a microSD card slot is an essential smartphone feature. Well, the Samsung Ativ S supports micro SD cards, meaning that by getting a 64GB card, the smartphone's total storage can be expanded to the whopping 80 or 96 GB, depending on whether you have the 16 or 32GB model.

Galaxy Note 10.1 could Challenge ipad?

Galaxy Note 10.1, the new tablet made by Samsung had announced this week, is attempt to chip away at the market dominance of ipad. Apple sold 28.8 million iPads in the first six months of this year to hold 64.4 percent of tablet market in the world, and Samsung sold only 4.4million to take less than 10percent market share. The new released Galaxy note 10.1 had be inspired high hopes to challenge Apple’s iPad.

Galaxy Note 10.1 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1:
Price: $499 for 16GB and $549 for 32GB
10.1inch screen with 1280 by 800   pixels resolution
 quad-core processor with 1.4 GHz clock   speeds 2GB Ram         
1.3 pounds weight
 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front facing camera 
 9 hours battery life  
Operating System: Android 4.0

The new iPad:
iPad sizePrice: $499 for 16GB and $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64 GB
9.7inch screen with 2048 by 1536 pixel
1.44 pounds weight 
5-megapixel camera on back and a low-resolution camera on front 
10 hours battery life
Operating System: iOS

   Besides being slightly larger than the 9.7-inch iPad, the 10.1-inch Samsung model has other differentiating factors including a stylus-based note taking and sketching function and screen split feature that allows users simultaneously to use two different apps side-by-side. And this would be the most attractive new feature of the one.
  Starting at $499, Samsung's base Note 10.1 model seems a reasonable enough buy when you factor in the addition of the S-Pen, PS Touch, Exynos 4 processor and 16GB of storage. However, until you take a glance at other Android tablets like ASUS' Transformer Infinity Pad TF700, which boasts a crisper 1,920 x 1,200 display, double the storage (32GB) and a quad-core Tegra 3 CPU. The Galaxy Note 10.1 was just so-so. And compare with ipad, Apple's iOS ecosystem is where most consumers will instinctively want to it. Moreover, 2,048 x 1,536 Retina display with the same price $499, that would be easy to make the choice for us.

galaxy note 10.1 VS iPad
The new one may not the best one , if you have plan to get a tablet, ipad3 still at the top of this area and the new Galaxy note 10.1 seems hard to change the situation . what’s more, next generation iPad is on the way now.

Rumors of Iphone5 in 2012

   Since the release of iphone4s in 2011 instead of a revolutionary Iphone5, we have look for the next IPhone for year, and Apple have returned to its lab to create the devices with all efforts. After the new ipad unveiled in March, we are believed that the real iphone5 would a radically different one and would come out in autumn. From March to now, we have much of rumor about iphone5: big screen, dual core, new design…..   Now, the iphone5 have begun to product in china, we could get it in 1-2 months, Let check the rumor around the iphoen5 in this year, that would be funny.
taller screen
    One of the most popular iPhone 5 rumors surfaced again when 9to5Mac reported that Apple has been testing a taller display for its next handset. 9to5Mac used iOS development tools to simulate a 640x1,136-pixel-resolution screen, which gave the phone five rows of icons stacked vertically above the dock, instead of the four displayed with iOS 5.
Now a 9-pin connector
   We've already heard that Apple might shrink the iPhone's 30-pin connector to either 19 or 8 pins, but now the possibility of a 9-pin connector is afloat. 9to5Mac says it found a code string for a 9-pin connector in the latest beta version of iOS 6. It's important to keep in mind, though, that until Apple issues the final release of iOS 6 the company will continue to add and remove strings as it tests the operating system.
The screen ships out in August
   Sharp, a Japanese company that is producing the screen for Apple's new iPhone, said it will begin shipping its models out. Though there hasn't been any official confirmation of the handset's launch date, the fact that Sharp's president, Takashi Okuda, told reporters in Tokyo that the screen will ship out now is consistent with a 2012 launch.

More iPhone 5 footage has been released
   Last month, a video purporting to show the new iPhone was released on the Interwebs, and a flurry of speculation followed. Today, another video has sprouted up, posted by Japanese site Macotakara. Though it's best to take this one with a grain of salt as well, the featured device is consistent with past rumors that the new iPhone will have a taller display, a smaller dock connector port, a relocated headphone jack, and a new back design.
The NFC idea is getting tossed around again
   The evidence is more substantial than from your run-of-the-mill press "insider": a patent application by Apple itself revealed an NFC chip imbedded into several Apple products, including an iPhone. The patent is titled "System and Method For Simplified Control of Electronic Devices," and illustrates the NFC acting as a remote control for televisions, standalone cameras, and DVRs.
A smaller dock, once again
   Reuters reported that the new iPhone's Dock connector port will indeed be smaller. Its current 30-pin port is expected to shrink down to a 19-pin connector. This will give more room on the bottom of the device for a headphone jack, which for now rests on the top of the iPhone.
Production has started in Shanghai
    According to a Taipei-based report, manufacturing company Pegatron has already started building the new iPhone. Based in Taiwan, the company has begun production in its Shanghai factory. It is also expected to produce the new version of the iPad, reported Digitimes.
Wait for the fourth quarter During the company's quarterly conference call, Verizon CFO Fran Shammo hinted at possible timing for the next iPhone with a vague reference that the carrier expects to launch a major phone in the fourth quarter.
Taller phone with a center camera
    The Taiwan-based blog posts photos of an alleged iPhone frame that is as wide as the iPhone 4S, but taller. That would allow for a 4-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16:9. It's already in production. Production of the next iPhone has already begun, a Japanese-language Apple blog claims. The Macotakara blog cites listings for iPhone 5 cases on a Chinese site as proof of its claim and it says the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminum.
quad-core A6 chip
    The not-always-reliable DigiTimes says that Apple's next-generation iPhone will be powered by a quad-core ARM processor based on Samsung's Exynos 4 architecture.
   The coding from two iPhone 5 prototypes may hint at Near Field Communication capabilities, according to 9to5Mac. NFC chips have already been featured in Android devices for Google Wallet and Android Beam, so this may mean that Apple is joining the mobile payments industry. This will coincide nicely with its launch of Passbook, an iOS 6 feature that lets users store electronic versions of receipts, tickets, and other merchant information.

After WWDC 2012, more rumors spread about a bigger iPhone
   Now that software developers are getting their hands on iOS 6, more hints about the new iPhone are emerging. Most notably, of a new Auto Layout feature that lets developers set parameters for certain UI elements. According to one developer that TechCrunch spoke to, Auto Layout is a necessity for Apple before it can launch devices with different resolutions -- implying that perhaps the next generation may have a different resolution than the last.
camera lens

It may have a 16:9 aspect ratio and HD front-facing camera
     People who use the iPhone's front-facing camera for vanity shots and Web chatting, rejoice. Mingchi Kuo, an analyst from KGI, believes the new iPhone will sport a 4.08-inch screen, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a high-def front-facing camera. In his report, Kuo also says he believes the rear-facing camera will still retain its 8-megapixel spec, but its maximum aperture will jump from 2.4 to 2.2.
iPhone 5 may launch in September
    In addition to the iPad Mini, an analyst from Topeka Capital Markets said that the iPhone 5 will likely launch in September. According to AppleInsider, the analyst, Brian White, cited sources from inside Apple's supply chain in Taipei.

That pesky taller iPhone 5 screen pops up on video
   Japanese Apple blog Macotakara publishes a visual comparison of the mystery screen part that's been floating around, next to the existing iPhone to show just how much bigger the screen would be. The the two notable changes are that the screen is taller, and that the FaceTime camera has been moved to the very top, center of the device, like on the iPad.
iPhone 5 launching with 3.95-inch display
   Citing sources, Apple blog 9to5Mac says Apple's testing two iPhones with larger displays at its headquarters, one of which will be released. The blog adds that the screen has a 3.95-inch display, which would be up from the iPhone's current 3.5-inch option.
More rumors pop up about that 4-inch screen
   Looks like that 4-inch screen may be happening after all, now that the more reliable Wall Street Journal's the one reporting it. According to one of the paper's sources, Apple has been tapping for larger screens from its suppliers (which include LG, Sharp, and Japan Display) to compete with Android devices.
Alleged iPhone 5 SIM card tray surfaces
   The next iPhone may not be all that different from current versions if an allegedly leaked part is to be believed. Spare parts site posts photos and details of a SIM card tray it says belongs to the next iPhone. The part is nearly identical to the one offered in the iPhone 4 and 4S with very minor cosmetic differences.

 It'll be made of Liquid metal
The rumor that Apple is ditching the iPhone's glass has surfaced again. This time from a Korean new site, ETnews, which reported that the iPhone 5 may be made out of Liquidmetal. In late 2010, Apple acquired a license for Liquidmetal, but has only used it for the iPhone's SIM ejector tool.
Different chip, different body
   Several iPhone rumors from varying media sources suggest that the iPhone will be more robust, both inside and out. Business Insider reported that it'll have a 4-inch screen and a unibody case, and 9to5Mac claims it'll be equipped with an A5X chip.

Google Nexus7—killer of Kindle fire but just another android tablet for ipad

google  Nexus
  Google's Nexus 7 is a milestone for android tablet. The first tablet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, offers the most bang for the buck you can get in the market right now. It's versatile, well-built, fast, and a lot of fun to use. It basically renders every 7in tablet priced at more than 250 bucks pretty much irrelevant. If Amazon has been wondering whether it should have released the Kindle Fire in the UK earlier, that question has been answered now – now that the Nexus 7 is here, the Fire won’t stand a chance. 

Physical features and Internet
  The Nexus 7 feels well-built, even classy for such an affordable tablet—and trust me, I've handled plenty of cheap tablets. Kudos goes to the hardware manufacturer, Asus, a company that typically builds good stuff. A Gorilla Glass screen dominates the front of the tablet, and around back, there's a slightly grippy, stippled black rubber panel. At 198.5 x 120 x 10.45mm (HxWxD) and 340g, it's comfortable to hold in one hand for long periods.
Turn the tablet on using the prominent Power button at the top right corner, and you'll see a perfectly fine 1280 x 800, 7in IPS LCD screen with a huge black bezel around it. The screen is higher-res than the Kindle Fire, which clocks in at 1280 x 600. This is one monster of a bezel, and it makes you wonder if the screen could have been larger, or the tablet smaller. The answer is probably, but not for £159. The display is bright enough to see indoors and out, although it's more reflective and less saturated than the high-end AMOLED screens used by the far more expensive tablets.

Performance and apps
  The quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset inside is one of the fastest mobile processors around. This unit runs at 1.3GHz in single core mode, and 1.2GHz when two to four cores are active. While our Antutu system benchmark won't run on the new version of Android, we ran a bunch of other benchmarks, including Geekbench and Quadrant for system scores, Browsermark and Sunspider for the Web, and Nenamark for graphics.
System-wise, the Nexus 7 performed on par with other recent Tegra 3 tablets. Geekbench is a cross-platform benchmark, and the Tegra 3 tablets score considerably higher on it than the dual-core Apple iPad does—in this case, 1,472 to the iPad's 761. Graphics performance was rock-solid with a 55.9fps rating in Nenamark, higher than the Asus Transformer Pad TF300.
Games just rock here. I downloaded a few of Nvidia's Tegra Zone titles, and both Zen Pinball and Riptide GP had the smooth ease of control, which marks a really good gaming experience. There was no jerkiness, no lag, and no compromises.
This is the first Google device to install Chrome as the default browser, and that's great; it's about 30 per cent faster than the older stock Android browser, and it has a better tab interface.
The performance news gets even better with Android 4.1 thanks to Butter. That's Google's code-name for a project that makes everything in the Android UI smoother, and it works. Screen transitions are indeed smoother, and there's no lag with the touch keyboard. The whole experience feels more polished and professional than previous Android iterations.
Butter doesn't solve everything, though. Android has problems with processing stylus touch inputs that can make it difficult to use drawing programs. I tried Sketchbook Pro with a stylus and still saw a lag. Android 4.1 apparently fixes this, but consumers won't see the advantage yet because the apps involved need to be retooled for the new OS.
Thus we get to the stickiest issue with Android tablets: The perpetual lack of great apps designed to use high-end hardware. This is less of a problem with Tegra-powered 7in tablets than with larger devices, or those with different chipsets, but it's still an issue. Apps designed for 4in phone screens don't look so bad on 7in tablets (although they don't look great), and Nvidia has been busily helping developers churn out a few dozen super-high-end games for its chips.

  However, the comparison between Nexus and ipad seems make no sense. After Google announced its new Nexus 7 tablet last Wednesday during their Google I/O event, Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets stated that Apple need not worry. For him, the search engine giant’s device is “just another Android-based tablet.”
  Apple probably doesn’t need to worry about Google’s latest tablet eating into its profit share. In fact, Android chief Andy Rubin admitted the company’s own profit margins for the device are extremely low: “When it gets sold through the (Google) Play store, there’s no margin. It just basically gets (sold) through.” The latest projections from IDC suggest that Apple will take back market share from Android this year, as the Cupertino-based company is expected to achieve 62 percent of the tablet market.

Surface VS ipad (Is Surface ipad killer?)

  Since the surface released by Microsoft earlier last week in California, Surface become the biggest rival of Apple’s ipad. Microsoft's competition in the tablet space is fierce, and seems no devices are as fearsome as iPad. However, the Surface seems want to do something in this dark market.  The Surface has two versions: one with a ARM processor and running Windows RT, the other with an intel Processor and running windows8. Although the price and exact release date of the “ipad killer” have yet to be announced, we have reason to believe that the surface would have a giant even revolutionary effect on the tablet market. Now, Let's come back to the main topic, is Surface really better than ipad and to be a ipad killer?  Here, Let’s check the unique features of surface.

surface keyboard  A frustration for many users of the iPad and other touchscreen devices is the keyboard. While it's possible to get somewhat proficient at tapping spots on a flat screen, most acknowledge it's impossible to get e-mail and other documents written as quickly as with physical keys. Sure, there are third-party keyboards you can buy to add onto the iPad, but they can be clunky. The Surface keyboard will be part of its Touch Cover, which is connected with magnets and flips open. There will be a version with pressure-sensitive flat keys and another with more traditional raised keys called a Type Cover. They're both sleeker and thinner than the third-party offerings for the iPad. The Touch Cover is 3 millimeters thick, and the Type Cover is 5 millimeters. And for the style-sensitive among us, they'll come in a variety of colors, including black, pink, red and blue.

2.USB ports
  Both versions of the Surface come with USB ports (2.0 on the RT and a faster 3.0 on the Windows Pro). The lack of ports has been one of the few persistent complaints about the iPad. These ports open up the possibility of extra storage, printing and other external capabilities that should be easier and quicker than the workarounds iPad users need involving cloud storage, Wi-Fi connections and the like.

3.Digital Ink And Stylus
  Microsoft designed the Windows 8 Pro version of the Surface tablet to accept stylus input. The company's demonstration of how the digital ink works gave the impression that writing, highlighting and underlining on the tablet is easy. Writes Slash Gear, "The distance between the screen (digitizer) and the stylus is only .7mm thick, and allows for it to be highly accurate, making you feel like the ballpoint of a pen is actually writing on the 'surface.'"

4.Options For Casual And Power Users
  Before picking up a Surface tablet, potential buyers should consider which version best fits their needs: The Windows RT version, a more traditional tablet that's slim and light and performs basic tasks -- with a presumably iPad-like price tag; or the Windows 8 Pro configuration, a slightly beefier and slightly pricier tablet that's more closely related to a laptop and capable of running heavy-duty software. Surface tablets running Windows RT are built around an ARM processor. According to CNN, chipsets made by ARM are found in 95 percent of other mobile devices, including the iPad. Windows 8 Pro models are built around an Intel chip and will run applications that one would expect to find on traditional laptops: Photoshop, Word, and Excel.

  Apple has made such a compact, stylish tablet that many of its competitors look chunky by comparison. That's not true of the Surface, at least as it was demoed Monday. First, its display screen is 10.6 inches, almost a full inch bigger than the iPad's. And the company says it's optimized to have essentially the same dimensions as a movie screen: So, farewell black bars when watching video. The Surface for Windows RT is a fraction of a tiny thinner than the iPad (9.3vs.9.4), while the heftier Surface for Windows 8 Pro will be 13.5 millimeters.
