Samsung Galaxy Mega


Samsung has made it again just like last year with the over all hype over new Samsung device ;  was the year of the multi-core processor, 2013 is surely the year of the big screen.

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 the Galaxy Mega 5.8, Samsung is  looking to blur the lines between phone and phablet even further, by adding more inches to its repertoire of display sizes.

Based on the review from various sources Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 is the lesser half of the new Mega duo, and if a 6.3″ screen is just too big for you, then 5.8″ may be just your size.And the plus point being  there may even be a few people out there that might still consider it a phone.

Having said that the Key Advantages and Disadvantages can be described as follows

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE; quad-band 3G with HSPA; LTE; Dual-SIM version.

Its an app that works on the simple principle of Bluetooth proximity .Its usually known as Bluetooth proximity lock;the name says it all.

It’s a utility tool that pairs with any mobile device that you usually carry around and have a Bluetooth functionality in it .Just pair it with the PC(desktop ,laptop,tablet etc ) which;obviously should have a Bluetooth functionality.

Set the app as usual along with the normal applications.Make necessary changes in the install menu if required

That’s it you have all setup and ready to go .th
Well if the user belongs to the group of geeks who would like to play around with stuff ;well they can tweak this app to their to their hearts content .

With Android update, Netflix has one interface for all devices


truly a game changer …..

Gigaom

Netflix announced an update to its application for Google Android phones on Monday that brings a tablet-like interface to the small screen. The free Netflix (s nflx) software, found in Google Play, now shows more video titles and images on the screen and also includes prominent links to content that users have started, but not finished, watching, allowing for faster playback where you left off viewing.

Chris Jaffe, Director of Product Innovation at Netflix, told us on-stage at our Mobilize event last week that this user interface was coming soon, so it shouldn’t be a total surprise. Jaffe explained how the interface on tablets is different from that of traditional televisions, adding that “With TV it’s left-right, up-down where as with the iPhone or tablet, it’s omnidirectional. We have to resolve the tension between being ubiquitous and being the best interface for the job.”

Samsung shows off first Windows Phone 8 handset…..


 

The Windows key is a hardware button, while the other two are capacitive.

The first Windows Phone 8 handset was revealed today at IFA in Berlin. Dubbed the Samsung ATIV S, it has a 4.8 inch “HD” (presumably 1280×720) Super AMOLED screen, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, 8MP rear and 1.9MP front-facing cameras, 1GB RAM, 16 or 32 gigabytes of storage, a micro SD slot, NFC support, and a 2,300 mAh battery—all in a 8.7mm (0.34″) thick device.

The internals are similar, then, to the company’s Galaxy S III handset. The externals, however, are very different. The front is Gorilla Glass 2. The back eschews the plastic of the Android handset in favor of brushed aluminium.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone blog, which actually scooped Samsung’s announcement, has lots of pictures of the device.

With Windows Phone 8 rumored to launch on October 29th, this doesn’t leave much time for developers to develop apps for the new platform. One possible reason is speculation that the company would rather developers continue to produce Windows Phone 7 apps instead. These apps will run fine on the new platform, but will also run on current handsets. The delay with publishing the SDK could, therefore, be an attempt to postpone the abandonment of the currently shipping platform.
