“The wearable computing device can be used to measure the user’s vital signs such as respiration and heartbeat, as well as to check phone calls and Facebook posts,” Hon Hai executives said while showing the watch at a shareholders meeting earlier this week.
Towards the end of May, you may recall we reported that there were whispers flying that Foxconn may be considering diversifying its core business model into more mobile applications, such as the production of mobile accessories. The change was said to be imminent due to Hon Hai having hit its limits in growth, with the WSJ reporting (at the time) that this had spurred the company into realising that there was a “pressing need” for business and customer diversification.
Sony Xperia i1 (Honami) specs:
• 5″ 1080p Full-HD display with Bravia technology
• 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core CPU
• 2 GB of RAM
• 20 megapixel camera with 1/1.6” sensor, Xenon flash
• 2700-3000 mAh battery
• water and dust resistance IP57 certified
• 10 mm thick
Getting the Snapdragon 800 quad-core under the hood, along with a massive 20 MP camera this phone sounds rather impressive. We’re also hearing, according to latest leaks, it will have the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean when announced on July 4th. Although that date hasn’t been confirmed, we’ll all know soon enough once the date approaches.
The Huawei Honor 3 will be working with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720p HD display, and Huawei’s own 1.5 GHz quad-core K3V2 processor along with 2GB of RAM. You’ll be enjoying 8GB of internal storage, and what we’re hearing is an 8 or 13 megapixel camera on the rear. The Ascend P6 is stylish and aluminum, but here we’re working with all plastic, just like previous Honor models.
We also have Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with UI tweaks from their Emotion UI, and surely we’ll be learning more details about this phone shortly. Hopefully it will come at a decent price too.
Or in other words, you can swap the Bridge from your computer to phone (or tablet) without the need for any additional cables. The Bridge is available in a 16GB or 32GB storage option and is priced at $17.99 or $28.99 respectively. While all this sounds interesting enough so far, there is one catch that comes with the supported devices — for now this will be limited to those running Jelly Bean.
Aside from Jelly Bean, there is a device compatibility list because unfortunately not all Jelly Bean devices are supported. The Bridge also needs devices with support for a micro USB On-The-Go (OTG) connector. The list includes a variety of Samsung, HTC, Motorola and LG smartphones as well as Samsung, Lenovo and Asus tablets. Also worth noting, the Leef Bridge drive does support the Samsung Galaxy Camera.
At present the Leef Bridge is available by way of the Leef website. Finally, while storage is limited to 16GB or 32GB at the moment, Leef has said a 64GB model will be available relatively soon. Pricing for the 64GB Bridge has yet to be announced, however the drive is expected to arrive in July.
Sony unveiled the brand new Smartwatch 2 this morning, an updated and enhanced version over the previous Smartwatch that came out last year. Smartwatch 2 features a few things not found in last year’s model, such as NFC technology for pairing with devices, a multi-functional message notification system, as well as a more finely-tuned interface.
Knowing which tasks the Smartwatch 2 is capable of performing might make this wearable device a bit more intriguing. Out of the long list, we can list just a few that should help you get a sense for what this watch can do – answer phone calls, take remote photos, control presentations at your next board meeting with one of Sony’s proprietary applications, read emails and so on and so forth. It sounds impressive and here’s hoping Google comes out with something like this sooner or later down the road.
Samsung has revealed a professional-grade, mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses during a London event on Thursday. The Galaxy NX runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, adding the ability to post high quality images directly within the camera to popular social apps like Instagram.
Back in May, Samsung announced the company was planing on bringing a notebook display to market with a resolution even greater than Apple’s Retina devices. Today, Samsung has officially announced the first application of the panel, used in the new ATIV Q. Boasting a 3200 x 1800 qHD+ display, the hybrid is capable of running both Android and Windows 8.
Flytecam is a 1080p POV video camera that’s looking to compete. It has specs that land it between GoPro’s lowest and middle tier offerings, but it’s supposed to be cheaper and doesn’t require waterproof or shock resistant cases.
Flytecam has a rubberized body, is waterproof down to 3 meters, has an 120º lens and shoots 60fps for slow motion in 720p. It claims a three hour battery life and was developed alongside a “flytemount” that uses neodymium magnets and rubber teeth to secure the camera for mounting (see below).
Pre-order is starting soon and pricing alone will decide whether this is a legitimate competitor (the base model GoPro is currently $200).
Aceasta consola va fi disponibila incepand cu 27 iunie 2013, la pretul de 299 $.
Huawei Ascend P6 va fi dotat cu Procesor Quad-core, iar grosime terminalului de doar 6,18mm !
