So Apple goes smaller “iPad Mini”

| comments

And the most awaited iPad mini now revealed the first smaller and newest member on the iPad siblings. It was unveiled together with the new iPad 4 and Mac mini of a stunning new 13in MacBook Pro Retina display. iPad mini release date is on the 2nd of November.

With its launch (iPad mini) really comes with no great surprise, it’s basically a smaller version of the iPad 2, having the same screen resolution with an A5 processor, a bit of a twist and a flatter design. And as well it’s cheaper. The clash on the new iPad mini over Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7 would be a slayer on the tablet arena. Let’s take a look closer on the iPad Mini.

It has a fantastic look on a 7.9 display LED-backlit screen. Its colors are vibrant, sharp text, and a better mobile experience on the iPad sibling. Screen resolution is 1024x768 resolutions at 163ppi, identical on the iPad 2. With its resolution that an iPad mini has should be no problem running on any iPad apps that absolutely aren’t made for Retina display iPad. It should able to run on any iPad app with no difficulty. 

Build and Design
The iPad mini is flatter and squarer with a slightly different style. With the previous iPads, the glass screen runs right to the edge of it with a preference of a black or white for the bezel, and it’s much thinner than on the life-sized tablet.

With a 7.2mm thin (23% thinner than the standard iPad) and a 308g (0.68lbs) light (Wifi model). Lock buttons and volume rack has moved to the right-hand side, and on the top edge is the headphone socket, on the bottom is where the new lightning connector and speakers are found. This would be a definite competitor to Kindle in this view due to its special feature the updated iBooks continuous streaming, due to its weight and size reduction.

iPad Mini has a dual-core A5 chip processor that can power-up games, apps and browsing. And also loaded with LTE meaning it can be used on EE’s 4g network. With a super fast browsing on a 5GHz wifi with compatible routers as well. Rumors and speculation that iPad mini comes with an 8GB memory but sad to say still stick with the standard 16, 32 and 64 GB memory offered.

A dual camera that has both FaceTime and iSight cameras (front and rear cameras), the rear has an impressive 5 megapixel stills and 1080p video recording while front support a 720p video. A good advantage for taking photos with one hand more easier due to its size and more convenient than the iPad.

It uses the Apple’s mobile latest software version the iOS 6 that was alongside released on the iPhone 5. We have seen that iOS 6 has some valuable changes, from its features proper integration on Facebook and Twitter, that you could directly post from just pulling down its notification bar.

A redesigned App Store that seems to look a bit better, this isn’t a world-changing with some dodgy changes aside from the Maps. Know more all about iOS 6.

Apple unveils its new iBooks app includes that support over 40 languages, which includes right to left page turning and also  it continuous scrolling mode.

Apple states an impressive 10 hour battery life, giving an edge of a couple of hours over its nearest rivals. So it’s totally an advantage.

As far with the iPad Mini, this would be a desired iPad yet. That has an improved mobile experience from its thinner shape, smaller size and lighter weight, a well built that can feel an easy hold and control in the hand and with a cheaper price on the market. Absolutely that iPad mini will really be searing in the market and will be a top seller for people on Christmas season.

The beauty of LG Optimus 4X HD P800

| comments

In the market today, LG was totally out of the list in smartphone arena, with the almost-failed Optimus 3D got washed out due to the love of HTC One X, Motorola Droid Razr and the Samsung Galaxy S3. LG now enters the market with a blast of a new smartphone, the LG Optimus 4X HD, the question to LG is that, is this would worry other brands? Though LG calls it “HD” through its additional features and it produces excellent display, the 1080p issue still appears to be missing. On the other hand, LG has brought with a wonderful and slick designed flat with a sophisticated look and internal features that would stand out on the leading smartphones in the market. This Android phone has a HD screen, Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and a strong quad-core processor.

The Optimus 4X HD has taken on the stylish LG Prada 3.0 design with its angular-look with rounded edges, it’s slim and lining background of a dual chrome lining on the edges. Its front surface protecting its 4.7 inch display by a Gorilla Glass cover with a bezel thin is making Optimus 4X HD a one-hand friendly phone regardless of its size. The standard Android touch panel button is the back, home and menu located below.

The left side is the volume control as on top is the 3.5mm headset jack and the Sleep/Power button. On its right side, nothing can be seen and on the bottom it has the micro USB port which support MHL. In spite of the elegant look, the back panel is made of plastic and houses the camera of an 8 megapixel with its led flash and the bottom holes is the speaker. The display is a standard 720p one and it’s additional features LG got is the Nitro HD and Spectrum that gets the IPS display of 1280 x 720 pixels having an excellent quality graphic, which would missed in the 4X as I told earlier is the 1080p factor that are well overvalued in most smartphones.

Keep comparison aside, the display and graphics quality of the 4X HD has an outstanding screen. In a bright condition the screen is well readable like on the sunlight. With such an intuitive and remarkable interface, a 1.5 GHz quad-core NVIDA Tegra 3 which it doesn’t really slow down the phone on a heavy usage that runs on a multiple application.

With its Optimus 4X HD battery it has a rate of 2150mAh which is just a bit higher than the Samsung S3’s 2100mAh. With the standard use of stand-by, texts and calls it could go for three days. If it includes the use of the Wifi, moderate games, reading e-books, and camera it could take up to almost 2 days. Not that bad.

With its physical look, LG 4X HD is simply elegant with its angular look. The feeling is good when holding through its right slimness and lightness. The LG’s speed is great, if the 4X comes a bit earlier than the Galaxy S3 and HTC One X this would be the best on hand. Nevertheless, Optimus 4X HD is a worthy to have through its price and its hype.

A smartphone with a build-in projector by Samsung

| comments

I think some of you heard about something different on most smartphone and one slips that wasn’t come to my attention and that was from the Samsung Galaxy Beam. The strangest or weirdest but a reasonably powerful smartphone with a built-in projector.  It’s an Android-based smartphone that can bring on a wall or other flat surface on whatever on its screen.

This device stands reasonably with a 1 GHz dual-core processor, capacity to work with HSPA and EDGE/GPRS and with a 4-inch WVGA (800x480 pixel) resolution TFT LCD display. It also has an 8 GB built-in memory as well as a microSD slot card that can carry up to 32GB of extra storage.

On its back, a 5 megapixel camera with a single LED flash and on front it’s a 1.3 megapixel camera.  The Galaxy Beam just measures at 124 x 64.2 x 12.5mm and weights about 145g. It might not be the smallest or the lightest device though it’s considerably its capacity to tote a projector on it. 

The projector has a bright degree of 15 Lumen at 1W and can project an nHD resolution (640X360 pixels). Imagine shooting photo and straight away displaying it with friends with a much bigger size made on the screen or watching a YouTube video clip on a room wall instead watching it on the screen, even working on a presentation for work functions without using a laptop and even screening whatever showing onto a larger surface. But as we all know that to utilize the projector, it needs a dark environment and I mean dark.

With its software aspect projector aside, it has an Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS and obviously isn’t an advance standalone OS experience on a smartphone in the market. And also, you’ll have those Google apps and Samsung’s collection apps pre-loaded added to it and a couple projector friendly apps, apps such as Samsung’s Social and Music Hubs, QuickPad and Kies 2.0.

When it comes to its battery on having a projector on it, Samsung Beam has a generous 2,000mAh battery that is very well when projector is not used. Hardly can’t get more than 3 hour projecting though, and provided considerately with 2 batteries due to its use for projecting purposes.

Who would ever think of a smartphone that can insert a projector on a device? But Samsung had pulled it and a certainly a special device. It’s really expensive for a mid-range android phone.  If you really need a portable projector and smartphone in one, this would be the best choice to have. The bottomline is for those who really need a projector for a daily basis in able to make it worthwhile.

A Professional-grade DLSR Camera the Canon EOS 1D X

| comments

A new flagship on the Canon’s professional line of DSLR’s the Canon EOS 1D X, a full-frame CMOS sensor image, autofocus beefed-up capabilities and sporting shooting speed improved. With the prior 1D-series models, 1D X merges its portrait and landscape grips, with all manual control that a professional need, and with a durable design. The 1D X has increasingly assimilates the professional-quality video features needed in this industry. It’s focused on multimedia capability, the ergonomics improvement on the previous 1D-series for sports, news photographers and wildlife. It was announced last fall but it’s just recently entering the market.

The 1D X is built around a full-frame 18 MP CMOS imaging sensor that distributes effective resolution. Basically, that it has the same size (containing the same surface area) on a single frame of a 35mm strip of film. The 1D X sensor measures in at 36 x 24mm, whereas the 1D Mark IV of an APS-H chip inside measures 27.6 x 18.6mm.
In such a way Canon have one reason manufacturing it, in the past. With the less over-all resolution, it tends to use slightly smaller sensors on professional DSLR for their more performance-oriented image files. In which it turns to make faster process, they produced extensively smaller in size. This has allowed Canon to enhance its continuous shooting speeds on the camera with the high-resolution, were full-frame models are capable of. Nevertheless, in recent years image processors become more powerful and technology has caught up. That means it can turn more crunch data in less time so that huge image files are no longer an obstacle for a speedy shooting that they were.

The twin DIGIC 5 processors that the 1D X’s give has a power to munch those image data, that also includes Raw image flies lossless, with an extremely fast shatter rate of 12fps in standard mode that in which the camera offers to allow or 14 fps in a super high speed mode (JPEG capturing only), making 1D X on the market the fastest DSLR, nearest to its rival fractionally quicker than the 11fps Nikon D4.

The 1D X able to offer it’s widest on any camera based on sensitivity ranges, with standard ISO ranging 100-51,200. Further expands at the low end to its equivalent to ISO 50 and ISO 204,800 in its H2 settings. Two-stop improvements over the 1D Mark IV over the 1D X. Canon has taking care of its metering of 100,000-pixel RGB AE metering system with partial or evaluative all offered metering forms.

There are no vivacious shooting forms or digital filters built-in, though the full suite of shutter-priority, program, aperture-priority and fully manual exposure modes (PASM) are present and correct. Video capture has a maximum quality setting of 1080p Full HD support at 30, 25 or 24fps. While recording video there is no functionality of continuous autofocus, need to manually adjust the focus once the camera is recording. Movies stored using H.264 (.MOV) density with timecodes embedded. The side camera body you’ll find a HDMI mini output on a HDTV for easy playback of movies. And there’s an Ethernet port to transfer images to a PC.

Through its battery life, whether you’re assigned to a basketball championship games or on an event on the sidelines. One thing you worry about how to swap batteries and able to be in good shape on that. With an extensive of about 2,000 images and through several hours digging on the menus and photo reviewing on its built-in LCD during a week-long trial, in observing the camera availability it’s still through a well deserve 41% condition. Performance wise, of course it depend on it’s diverging external condition and the time you reviewing images after each capture on the LCD.

This is much of the things that I could share but if you’re an owner of a 1D Mark IV a new professional DSLR in the market, probably you’ll be upgrading a camera by buying the 1D X. With spending most on a 1Ds Mark III in a studio having to jump with less motivation, nonetheless, considering the value of that camera with its benefits of the X when shooting in controlled lighting environments. Never owned one of those cameras but if your burning a bundle of cash, you’ll be happy on the D1 X. Just keep a massive size mentality, and figuring it out on how to fit it through your lifestyle.

Samsung Galaxy 10.1 not the Tab but a Note

| comments

Then next in line for Samsung Galaxy Note series the Galaxy Note 10.1, first released a monster pack Galaxy Note 5.3 inch screen with useful S-Pen Stylus. Samsung is now taking its step to a full blown phablet.

To those who has been anticipating on what follows next of Samsung’s innovations, the tablet product lined-up might be confusing, noticed that Galaxy Note 10.1 is basically the same as the Galaxy Tab 2  10.1 except with the stylus support. The Note 10.1 has an upgraded feature to a Exynos 4 Quad chipset over the dual-core TI OMAP used in the Tab 2, with few upgrades to its camera, however the display remain identical and its core design as well.

But wait, there is more! The highlights that come with it includes an ARM cortex A9 quad-core chip processor running at 1.4 GHz, with an extended microSD card slot, a 5 megapixel AF camera with led flash, whooping 2 GB RAM and a 16GB of built-in memory. The sides are provided with a reasonable oomph pair of stereo speakers.

It comes with an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) out of the box but there are promises in the future that it would be upgraded with an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade.
This is possibly the best to look and go through on what is good about the device and its vital components are located.

Flanked speakers to its left and right on its silver panel that runs around the edge through a white bezel, in front of it is the display in the center; on its top a front-facing camera and a light sensor. The front device is protected and super-smooth on a Gorilla Glass 2.

The Stylus/S-Pen is located on the right hand side (display facing you) with a hole along the bottom edge. It’s actually easy to remove and insert the Stylus/S-Pen, the S-Pen is slightly wider than it is tall, similar button features that you can find in the original Galaxy Note, thought it’s easier to push due to a much larger pen. The pen is reasonably ergonomic.

At the back, it’s just basically a huge slab plastic, with its fixed camera in the center on its silver panel. On the top edge is the power button, it’s generally found vaguely far into the center, also with its volume rocker, infrared port, microSD card slot, 3.5 headphone jack and SIM card slot.

This Note 10.1 is using a proprietary 30-pin connector for USB/charging connector which is somewhat irritating for me. The tablet is thin and light, in which it helps portability and also prevent exhaustion holding it for a long time.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 has something that would surprise you to know. A 10.1 inch screen PLS TFT LCD panel has a fair 1,280x800 pixel. With some recent Android tablets with a full HD display like the Acer Iconia Tab A700 and Asus Transformer Infinity has an overwhelming sharpness resolution of 1,920x1,200 pixel. If the Note has an appealing creativity on images, a high resolution display this would be a winner, especially when iPad comes to a raving 2,048x1,536 pixels.

The screen still appealingly sharp, when watching my favorite YouTube clip especially those flurries of snow, is displayed well. It’s at least rather bolder and very brighter too, pleasingly deep blacks and standout colours as well. If you’re on to movies and spending time watching YouTube clips, satisfyingly superb.

As Samsung creates as pretty much everything in the Android sphere, the Note 10.1 is with their TouchWiz custom UI atop Android 4.0 TouchWiz on its sensibly heavy skin, it show Samsung has given effort to change much of everything about stock extent on Android.

With its screen resolution, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 may crush by the iPad (3rd generation), however features of a powerful quad-core processor and an S-Pen Stylus appeals to be creative. Even if you don’t have use for the pen, a swift overall performance, decent screen, sensible design and useful features that makes the Samsung 10-inch tablet the best.
