Ultra-slim 4.0” dual-core Motorola XT760 leaked, specified with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, 8MP camera

The middle and high-end smartphone markets have always been a place of strategic importance of all mobile phone manufacturers. In the recent market, Motorola seemed to keep quiet for a long time. But this is clearly set to change soon enough. Aside from the 4.6-inch Droid Fighter, which should be the company’s flagship in 2012, the US-based technology manufacturer will most likely come with a couple of more affordable gadgets as well. After introducing the XT681 and several other phones, an ultra-slim 4.0 inch dual-core smartphone, codenamed XT760, has been leaked online from a Chinese site. Though there isn’t much information we can get from the blurry pictures, we pretty much have these guys’ tech specs jotted down according to rumors. Check the following content to get a detailed acknowledgement of this new phone.

Ultra-slim phone body with 4.0” touchscreen: Let’s check the dimension of this phone, which is 120.8x63.98x9.88mm and weights only 125g. Less than 10mm phone thickness, but comes with a large 4.0 inch TFT LCD touchscreen in qHD (960 x 540) resolution, which brings clear and smooth picture and digital entertainment experience. Users could freely watch HD movies on Motorola XT760 with ease.

1GHz dual-core processor: Motorola adopts ST-Ericsson DB8500 dual-core processor, which is also adopted by the Galaxy Advance (GT-i9070), on XT760.

8MP camera with LED flashlights: Motorola XT760 is built-in a top of the notch 8 MP rear-facing camera and LED flashlights, supports auto-focus and 720P HD video recording at 30fps.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS: Unfortunately, the Motorola XT760 is said to operate on the Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread OS, which may make it somewhat disappoint for its fans.

Other features and specs of Motorola XT760 include: support 3G/WAPI/Wi-Fi network connectivity, GPS navigation, SD card memory expansion, 1GB RAM, etc.

And talking about release, we of course know nothing of when this Motorola XT760 will be street released and where it will be made available, but something tells us that this gadget will hit China first. Depending on the success there, this phone will come or not to the US and European markets.

13.3 inch Toshiba AT330 tablet unveiled at Toshiba World 2012 sporting TV tuner on Android ICS OS

Toshiba AT330
What sizes do you think a tablet should be and which size would you like to choose, a 10 inch one or just a 7 inch one? Well, Toshiba has another idea on tablet for you, a larger size tablet which could even be used as a laptop. Toshiba has unveiled a new prototype tablet, the AT330, at Toshiba World 2012 in Germany and it’s a huge 13.3-inch slate sporting the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This tablet had been mentioned early at CES, but rare information was provided then. Beyond the massive screen size, the AT330 also features a Tegra 3 quad-core processor and a TV tuner that includes a pull-out antenna. The folks at Techfokus spent some hands-on time with the tablet, the video of which is posted below.

The tablet also has a bunch of ports, full size ports actually. There's an SD card slot, SIM card slot, and full HDMI port, which could help you to enlarge its memory storage and enhance the digital entertainment with this tablet. It’s not certain what resolution display it has, but it looks to be a 1920 x 1200 LCD panel, which, if confirmed, would make it a No. 1 choice to watch HD movies on Toshiba AT330, together with its large screen display. Other detailed specs of this tablet are still not known, but a 5MP rear-facing camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera have been seen on the tablet body. And we may even guess that there might be another variant of this tablet for a USA release though no word on that by far, since a TV tuner is not a feature we see much on devices that come to USA.

Check on the hands-on video of the tablet from the Toshiba World conference to get some first impression on Toshiba AT330 tablet:

Nokia Lumia 719 image leaked with the rumor to be launched in Asia and America on March 28

Nokia Lumia 719
Nokia has officially released four Windows Phones in the past months to retrieve its smartphone market share which has been nibbled away by Apple iPhones and Android smartphones in recent years. Nokia has released the Lumia 610, Lumia 710, Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 starting from last October, all of which are available now in the smartphone market. According to the latest report, after half a year since Nokia initially debuted the Nokia Lumia 710 Windows Phone handset, it appears that a variant of that device will be headed to China and other parts of the world, including the U.S. The variant, known as the Lumia 719, is said to be similar to the original Lumia 710, but has a different button layout, a chin design, and more radio support.

The Lumia 719 is speculated to retain some of the specs that debuted on the Lumia 710, including the 3.7-inch ClearBlack LCD display and 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU. The device will also have a 5-megapixel rear-camera if that is the case.

The device is believed to be coming first to China and may debut in other parts of the world including Asia, North America, and South America. It’s unclear if the device will be coming to any specific carriers Stateside.

The Lumia 719 joins Nokia’s Lumia Windows Phone lineup, which includes the low-end Lumia 610, the Lumia 710, the Lumia 800, and the new Lumia 900 which had debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show; the Lumia 900 is the only LTE model.

As for the release date, it is said that the Nokia Lumia 719 will be most probably released on March 28th in the districts mentioned above.

Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update on Samsung Galaxy Note might be delayed to Q2

Samsung Galaxy Note

The Samsung Galaxy Note is absolutely a strong competitor to Apple iPhone 4S in most fields, some of which even exceeds Apple iPhone 4S, like the full 1080P HD video recording and playback feature, which not only enables you to record full 1080P movies with Samsung Galaxy Note, but also lets you watch 1080P movies on Samsung Galaxy Note unlimited on the go. But one thing that may make the Samsung Galaxy Note less attractive, that is the OS. The Samsung Galaxy Note initiated with Android™ 2.3(Gingerbread), which is not that attractive to that of iOS 5 on Apple’s iPhone 4S. Luckily, Samsung promised to update the OS to Android 4.0, the Ice Cream Sandwich, in the end of Q1. But, wait, I think you should get the latest news about the OS update.

According to the latest report, the update of Android ICS on Samsung Galaxy Note has been delayed. The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the phoneblet has been pushed back from its initially announced Q1 launch to Q2. It's only been confirmed by Samsung Norway through its Facebook account, so it's not certain if the delay will be a global thing, but that seems likely. The global rollout of the Ice Cream Sandwich update only took a few days, so we assume the Galaxy Note units, which are much fewer in number will be updated in a very short interval.

The reason for the delay is unknown just yet and so is the exact launch date. With Q2 starting in a couple of weeks and ending in June the delay might be a pretty minor thing or it could mean another three months without the latest and greatest from the Google OS for the Note users. Here's hoping it will be a case of the former rather than the latter!s

Top 6 Android tablets with 4G network connectivity to compete with the new 4G iPad

On the March 7th event, Apple announced the new iPad and promised that the new iPad could work on 4G LTE network connectivity either on AT&T or Verizon. This would be quite amazing for the 4G network connectivity would bring totally different experience to users. But the new iPad is only applicable to 4G network connectivity in North America. If you are looking for a 4G capable tablet to use in a place other than North America, you could turn to some wonderful Android tablets with 4G network connectivity. Android has started a long journey with 4G network connectivity on tablets, not only on smartphones, for a long time ahead of Apple iPad with various excellent options for you to choose from. 

With the new iPad accessible with 4G network connectivity, the 4G future we've been promised for years has arrived. And it's not just for smartphones. We've been playing around with 4G Android tablets ever since the T-Mobile G-Slate back in early 2011. Today, I would like to share some best Android tablets with 4G network connectivity which may compete with the new 4G iPad to a certain degree. 

Sony Tablet P
Sony Tablet P
The Sony Tablet P comes with a dual-screen, hinge-based designed 5.5 inch 1024 x 480 pixels screen display that allows the tablet to be closed up, just like a clam shell. The foldable design of this tablet makes it fit into most large pockets. The dual-screen design has made it a quite unique tablet option in the market for users to choose from. Click to check the full specs of Sony Tablet P.

Motorola Droid XyBoard 8.2
Motorola Droid XyBoard 8.2
The Xyboard 8.2 is a powerful tablet, running on Verizon's robust 4G LTE network. Its 8.2-inch screen strikes a nice compromise between the more common 7-inch and 10.1-inch competitors, making it better for thumb-typing when held in portrait and on-the-go entertainment to watch DVD movies on Droid XyBoard. It doesn't come cheap, though, and the only affordable way to acquire one comes with a two-year contract. For detailed information, check Motorola Droid XyBoard 8.2 specs.

Motorola Droid XyBoard 10.1
Motorola Droid XyBoard 10.1
To watch HD movies on Motoroal Xoom has been a great enjoyment. Now, as the successor, the Motorola Droid ZyBoard 10.1 would also be a good choice, besides its capability of 4G network connectivity. The excellent video experience also adds extra credit to this tablet. Check Motorola Droid XyBoard 10.1 specs for more.

T-Mobile SpringBoard
T-Mobile Springboard
The Huawei-designed T-Mobile Springboard harkens back to another early adopter of 4G, the HTC EVO View 4G. This 7-inch tablet offers a beautiful screen, stylish design, and doesn't skimp on the specs, either. Unfortunately, like many tablets on this list, the Springboard comes at a relatively high price, not to mention a two-year contract.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
The Motorola Xoom may have been the first Honeycomb tablet, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was the first to make us swoon. Its iPad 2-matching thickness and lightweight construction make it a great travel companion. Unfortunately, its iPad idolization carried through to its one-port design and an absence of memory expansion.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 packs the full Android Honeycomb tablet experience, along with Samsung's useful customizations, into a compact body. The 8.9 hits a sweet spot of portability, design, and pixel density.

How to edit photos with iPhoto for iOS on your iPad 2/iPhone4/iPhone 4S and the new iPad

iPhoto for iOS
It has seemed to be a regular for Apple to announce new updates for its software programs along with its hardware update announcements. On the March 7th event, Apple released the new iPad (3rd generation). But the new iPad is not the only big deals that were released during the event, Apple also released a new program, iPhoto for iOS. Unlike a video editor which edits videos for you, the iPhoto for iOS is a professional image editing tool for your new iPad (3rd generation), iPad 2, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, which could let you browse, edit, and share your photos on your iPad or iPhone freely. You can purchase iPhoto for iOS in the App Store at $4.99, and you will need to be running iOS 5.1 on your iOS device(s) for iPhoto to install. With the size of the app coming in at 106MB, you will need to be connected to Wi-Fi to download the app on your device.

Getting started: After downloading and installing the app, your photos will be presented to you in albums, with four tabs along the top to narrow down the photos you want to view, respectively: Albums, Photos, Events, and Journals.
iPhoto for iOS interface
The Albums tab groups your photos by status, whether they have been edited within the app, beamed to you from another iOS device, stored in Photo Stream, or on your camera roll. The Photos tab will display the photos currently stored on your device; you won't see your Photo Stream photos stored here. The Events tab will display your photos sorted by event, which is set up by syncing photos through iTunes or with the iPad Camera Connection Kit. The Journals tab will display the photo journals you create within the iPhoto for iOS app.

Viewing photos: Tap on the photo or album you would like to view. On the left side you will see thumbnail previews of the rest of the album you are currently viewing. You can adjust the size as well as relocate the column of thumbnails by touching the top of the bar and dragging it.
If you want to view more than one photo at a time, you can use a flicking motion to move it out of the thumbnail area and into the main section of iPhoto. You can also double-tap any photo's thumbnail, and iPhoto will automatically display all similar photos to you. This will come in handy if you have taken multiple photos of the same thing and want to quickly decide which one to keep.

Editing: The editing tools are along the bottom of your screen. In the lower-left corner of the screen you will find the tools that allow you to crop and straighten, adjust exposure, color, use brushes, and add effects to your photo.
If any of these tools intimidate you, the auto-enhance button looks like a magic wand in the middle of the toolbar. Located next to the auto-enhance button are the rotate, flag, favorite, and delete buttons. If you are not familiar with the specific work each tool does, you can tap on the question mark at the top.

Well, after you edit your photos with iPhoto for iOS on your iPad or iPhone, you can choose to share with your friends or not. You are given a healthy dose of options of what to do with your photos. Creating a journal will allow you to upload the Journal and share it with your friends, or you can Beam a photo from one iOS device to another iOS device running iPhoto on the same Wi-Fi network. You can also upload photos to a specific album on Facebook, print, or e-mail multiple photos. Unfortunately, the iOS limit of five photos per e-mail is still in place.

Apple quietly released iTunes 10.6 after the new iPad event with significant 1080P content playable now

Apple iTunes 10.6

Following the March 7th Apple’s new iPad event, the company quietly released the updated version of iTunes, the iTunes 10.6. This time, Apple made a small update to iTunes that mainly includes three aspects: add compatibility for the new iPad (3rd generation) and Apple TV hardware; improve the reliability of Apple’s iTunes Match service; and, most significantly, add support for purchasing, downloading and viewing 1080p content from the iTunes Store.

Probably the most significant update for users in iTunes 10.6 is the addition of support for 1080p video, released in conjunction with matching higher-resolution content on the iTunes Store, as well as the new third-generation iPad and third-generation Apple TV. Before the iTunes 10.6, iTunes users are only able to play and watch 720P movies on iTunes. If users want to watch 1080P HD movies on iTunes, they have to convert 1080P movies to iTunes first and then they could freely playback 1080P HD movies on iTunes, but in low quality 720P format. It’s also worth keeping in mind that these are the only two standalone hardware devices—other than Macs and Windows PCs—that will currently provide support for the higher-quality video content.

And before the update to iTunes 10.6, users have to download 1080P HD movies to iTunes from online video sharing sites, due to no 1080P HD movie content are provided on iTunes. Now, users could own the right to directly purchase and download 1080P HD movies right from iTunes store. Meanwhile, users now are also able to access and play 1080P HD games on iTunes, and sync HD content with ease now.
Play 1080P content on iTunes 10.6
Besides, the release notes for iTunes 10.6 also note “many improvements for iTunes Match,” including improved song matching, improved album artwork handling, downloading and display, and issues where songs may skip when playing from iCloud.

Other changes include: Convert higher Bit Rate Songs during sync; Watch video (almost) instantly while it’s still being downloaded from the iTunes Store; etc.

The Apple New iPad released: quad-core A5X GPU processor, Retina Display, iPhone 4S iSight Camera, the same price as iPad 2, but not officially named

the new iPad
After long waiting, Apple finally officially released the next generation of iPad on the March 7th event in San Francisco on Tuesday, unveiling a quad-core A5X GPU processor, Retina display with 2048x1536 pixels screen resolution, a facetime 3.1MP camera and a rear 5.0MP iPhone 4S iSight camera supporting 1080P video recording, 4G LTE network connectivity, up to 10 hours of endurance compatibility (9 hours under 4G LTE connection), etc. As to the price, the new iPad is going to stay the same price as that of iPad 2, with the Wifi version of the new iPad starting from $499 and WiFi+ 4G version starting from $629, exactly like what I said in my post Apple iPad HD is likely to stay the same price and size as iPad 2, ranging from $499– 829. But one thing that might confuse people is that the new iPad is not officially named out. During the release event, Apple CEO called it “the new iPad”, neither iPad 3, iPad 2S, nor iPad HD.

Different from the speculations and rumors, the new iPad still comes with the Home key and no 3D display support. Siri is also not included in this new iPad. The rumored A6 processor is not on the list of the new iPad either. Just like rumors said, the new iPad adopts quad-core A5X GPU processor and features up to 2048x1536 pixels Retina display, which no doubt produces full HD effect for you to even play HD Blu-ray movies on iPad. Phil Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple Inc, explained the A5X processor and claimed it is four times to NVIDIA Tegra 3 in graphic processing ability. High screen resolution and better GPU processor bring users 3.1 megapixels display effect, which surpasses the effect of HD TV. The new iPad also made great improvement in camera, bringing 1080P HD movie recording. Though the hardware updated greatly, the endurance compatibility will stay the same as that of iPad 2. Check the new iPad specs for more detailed information about the new iPad.

With the release of the new iPad, the iPad 2 price is reduced by $100, starting $399. If you want to buy the new iPad (3rd generation), you can now pre-order your desired one on Apple Store. The shipment of the new iPad (3rd generation) will be available since March 16th.

Apple iPad HD is likely to stay the same price and size as iPad 2, ranging from $499 – 829

iPad 3
The long anticipated iPad HD has been discussed a lot online about its specs and release date. The thing that may most be set is that the iPad HD would adopt brand-new Retina Display which produces excellent experience for you to watch full HD movies on iPad HD. Of course, other features like new A6 processor, thicker tablet body, full HD gaming experience, larger battery, etc. Also, the release date is another focus worldwide upon iPad HD, which is rumored to be set most possibly on March 7th. Aside from the specs and release date, as an Apple fans, you must also want to know about the price of iPad HD. I wrote a post not long before saying the iPad HD might be $70 higher than iPad 2, which seems to be just guess work now. According to the latest news from 9to5 Mac, it seems the iPad HD is likely to stay the same prices as that of iPad 2, ranging from $499 to 829 upon different versions.  

9to5 Mac claims to have received new info on the so-called "iPad HD" pricing matrix. Their information shows the devices falling into the same price points as the iPad 2 for their respective configurations. According to the site, the iPad HD will come in the same three configurations: 16/32/64GB models in both WiFi-only and 3G+WiFi (if there is an LTE iPad HD, its pricing appears to remain a secret). The starting price for the 16GB WiFi model will reportedly be $499—the same as the 16GB WiFi-only model of the iPad 2. The detailed price levels upon respective iPad HD models could be seen in the bellow picture:
iPad 3 price
Also, the size of the iPad HD gets plenty of attention. People all want to know the dimension of the iPad HD and whether it would be thicker or thinner than iPad 2. A video from YouTube has provided some inspirations towards the iPad HD size. Check the video bellow to know more:

For camera or camcorder users, one problem existing is that the videos shot by the camera or camcorder could not be played back on all media players, or it is quite troublesome for users to edit videos and images in various video editing software programs when people want to upload their recorded videos to blogs or online video sharing sites for unlimited sharing. Even though your Canon 5D Mark lll supports AVI, RAW, H.264, MOV, MPEG-4, etc. different media players own different video codec, which may result in playback failure. In such case, a Video Converter (Mac users could use the Camera Video Converter for Mac) that could easily convert Canon 5D Mark lll videos to video in other file formats and enable you to change output video and audio codec would be of great help. Check how to convert camera/camcorder recorded videos to other video file formats for various media players and you will be able to freely view your recorded videos and images on media players you have as you like.

A FAQ list on iPad 3 – What you need to know about iPad 3: release date, specs and more

The Apple iPad 3 has been a long anticipated hot spot worldwide recently. People have spent much energy and time on discussing what Apple iPad 3 would bring out and when. After much rumors and speculation, Apple has sent out invites to US press sites, confirming 7 March as the iPad 3 launch date, explaining in the invite that it has "something you really have to see. And touch." Today, I have made a collection on Apple iPad 3 in a FAQ list to show you what you need to know about iPad 3, including the iPad 3 release date, specs and more.
iPad 3

When will Apple iPad 3 be released?
The iPad 3 release date will be March or April 2012. We now know there will definitely be an iPad 3 launch event on 7 March and we'll probably also see the release of iOS 5.1 at the same time. The iPad 3 US release is probably set to early March while the European iPad 3 release might be in late March.

Will Apple iPad 3 adopt quad-core processor?
According to the rumors, it's probable that the iPad 3 will have a brand spanking new processor, Apple's A6 - which will surely be a quad-core ARM-based processor. Quad-core designs are coming from various ARM partners and the Tegra 3 has already been launched by Nvidia, as well as the Snapdragon S4 from Qualcomm.

What about the Apple iPad 3 display?
Or the question might be will a Retina display on the way on iPad 3? This is the one of the most anticipated features on our wish list. The exciting news is that it looks as though it is happening, with Apple reportedly testing suppliers' current shipments of 2048 x 1536 resolution 9.7-inch displays, which would make iPad 3 a full HD player to even play HD Blu-ray movies on iPad 3.

Will iPad 3 be named iPad 2S?
It is possible that the next iPad to be released soon might be named as iPad 2S, according to the report that an iPad case maker in China has started to sell a cover for a device it's calling 'iPad 2S'. And from the iPhone 4S, we might also see that possibility.

Will there be a LTE iPad 3?
According to the Wall Street Journal report on February 14th that: "Verizon Communications Inc. and AT&T Inc. will sell a version of the coming iPad that runs on their newest fourth-generation wireless networks, according to people familiar with the matter", there might be an LTE iPad 3 version.
Update: The latest news from AppleInsider suggests that the next Apple iPad might be named as iPad HD with a Retina display, sourcing from case makers. 

What about the OS of iPad 3?
The iPad 3 is most probably going to adopt iOS 5.0, but there is possibility that we'll see iOS 5.1 come out of beta in March for iPad 3.

What about iPad 3 battery?
A back housing image of iPad 3 leaked has suggested that the Apple iPad 3 will include more battery power, which is quite reasonable, for the large screen and upgraded hardware configurations.

Will iPad 3 support NFC?
NFC is also long anticipated in Apple devices, like iPhone 5 and iPad 3. Rumors go that iPhone 5 will use NFC to take over nearby Macs, enabling you to use your data and settings with a flick of the wrist. Many devices of other manufacturers have included NFC support. The iPad 3 is also most probably to add this.

Will iPad 3 include more storage?
With the full upgrade of HD movies and video playback, 300dpi PDF eBook, improved camera resolution, etc. the memory capacity is for sure to be extended at least double, in 32G to 128G.

Will a Thunderbolt port be included in iPad 3?
The first two generations of iPads are all USB-free which may suggest Apple might not add Thunderbolt port to iPad. But the new Thunderbolt port in the 2011 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air could be another story. From my personal point of view, there might not include a Thunderbolt port.

Would iPad 3 be thicker?
The iPad 3 might be bulking out, reportedly so it can house a higher-resolution display than the iPad 2, and the extra girth is all down to pixel density.

Will SD card slot be included?
This was widely predicted for the iPad 2 and, like the Retina Display, didn't materialise. One for version 3, perhaps? Using a separate adapter to read camera cards is rather inelegant and clunky.

Will a better camera be included in iPad 3?
Camera resolution of iPad and iPhone has also been a disadvantage for Apple. The rear-facing camera on the iPad 2 isn't brilliant, while an iPhone 4S-style camera and flash would make iPad 3 more perfectly. Several reports are suggesting the new device will have an 8MP camera.

Will iPad 3 use gesture controls?
Could the iPad 3 have Kinect-style gesture controls? We're not so sure, but rumours suggested so in late October 2011.

The iPad 3 could feature a carbon fibre case
Apple has hired a carbon fibre expert, senior composites engineer Kevin Kenney, fuelling speculation that the next iPad could be encased in the lightweight material.

What is the price of iPad 3?
Speculation suggests that the iPad 3 price will be $579, rather than the $499 users are currently paying for a Wi-Fi-only 16GB iPad 2. In fact, the prices of iPad 3 would be varied due to different variants, like 3G version and Wi-Fi+3G version. Check the price of iPad 3 for detailed information.
