"(Reuters) - Apple Inc is gearing up to unveil a new product at a major September 12 event, a source familiar with the plan said, presaging the long-awaited launch of the redesigned iPhone."

According from the source, the September 12th date may shift. Taking peak holiday shopping season into consideration, the company is mostly to make the gadget to hit store shelves around this period.

As for the features of the new iPhone, it is said that the next iPhone would help revolutionize the mobile industry with a thinner phone body. The larger screen display with higher screen resolution let users watch HD videos on iPhone 5 freely and easily. Just like the Retina Display screen on the new iPad, the new iPhone would surely produce satisfactory visual effect for users. The source also indicates that the device would have a smaller dock connector.

October 26 will see the official release and fully features of Microsoft Windows 8

The official release date and fully features of Microsoft Windows 8 have long been one of the most important anticipations this year. Microsoft has released several different versions of Windows 8 as testing versions for the final official release, like the Windows 8 Release Preview. Now the official release date of Microsoft Windows 8 has been finally confirmed to be October 26th. Steven Sinofsky, president of Microsoft's Windows division, made the announcement during the company's annual sales meeting, according to the Windows Team Blog. The availability of Windows 8 is also given to be late October by the company.
Microsoft Windows 8
The release date applies to new Windows 8 PCs and to upgrades, which will cost $40 through January 31 for users running Windows XP or later. No specific launch day of hardware was mentioned, but Microsoft's Surface Windows RT tablet should be available around that time.

As the release date of Windows 8 has been officially confirmed, what remain to be unknown are the features of Windows 8. Of course, the full features of Windows 8 OS would be unveiled the day it’s released. But for curiosity, we may want to know some key features of Windows 8 beforehand, right? Here I have collected some wonderful features of Windows 8 that you may love.

Speedy Boot Time: The load and boot up speed has improved significantly over Windows’ predecessors. This is partly due to the better resource allocations to applications and the system. When compared to Windows 7 desktop CPU, Windows 8 has an even speedier boot time.

Innovative & Dynamic Desktop: The tiles-based interface, or the Metro UI, will be the first thing you see upon logging in to Windows 8. At first glance, the UI seems to go intuitively with touchscreen devices like tablets and smartphones. Indeed, in such devices, you tap on those apps to open them. The grid layout seems to facilitate such interactions. Needless to say, you can customize your grid by adding and arranging applications.

Improved Search Function: Windows 8 has no search box at the bottom of the Start menu. Heck, it doesn’t even have the trademark Start menu! That doesn’t mean that there’s no convenient search function available. All you need to do is to type anything, and a search box will appear from the right and give you the results. The search capability is even stronger this time, displaying all the matching apps and files instantaneously.

Windows To Go: Of the entire list here, this is one feature that offers the most convenience to users. Windows To Go allows users to make a copy of their OS complete with their settings, wallpapers, files and even apps, into a USB thumb drive. Plugged it into another computer with Windows 8 already installed, and you can boot up the PC and make it look exactly alike the OS you normally use, with all settings intact.

Windows Live Syncing: Similar to Windows To Go, the new Windows 8 will provide Windows Live syncing, such that users can login on any Windows 8 PC with ‘Live ID’ and get back their own personalized settings on it. The desktop will look the same every time the user login on a PC with their Windows Live account. Migrating to a new PC is probably made easier when the user has all the essential settings synced.

Top 5 most popular and powerful Android 4.0+ tablets so far

So far, there’re many excellent Android 4.0 ICS tablets in the market. With the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it’s certain most tablets would get updated to the latest Android OS. Here I would like to share some wonderful tablets that feature with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or the updated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700
Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700's high-resolution screen rivals the new iPad's display in sharpness and clarity, which produces extraordinary video experience just like to watch full Blu-ray movies on the new iPad. Also, apps launch quickly, GPS works well, and its rear camera is the best among all Android tablets. The tablet's body has the same great thin and light design as the Prime. The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is one of the fastest Android tablets out there, combining an already proven design with a better camera, a faster processor, and a beautiful screen.

Google Nexus 7

When talking about Android 4.0+ tablets, we must mention Google Nexus 7, as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean firstly updated on Galaxy Nexus 7. And besides that, with a beautiful screen, fast performance, a comfortable design, and overall great media options, the Nexus 7 is easily the best 7-inch tablet available and one of the top tablets on the market. It comes with quad-core Tegra 3 processor and a beautiful and responsive screen. Also, it's comfortable to hold and Android 4.1 brings a surplus of welcome additions. At only $200, the Nexus 7 is a steal.

Though it isn't as thin or as sturdy, the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 delivers Prime levels of performance at a more affordable price. The Asus Transformer Pad TF300's Tegra 3-induced performance more or less matches the Transformer Prime's and goes a step further with a better rear camera, faster Wi-Fi performance, a more responsive screen, and an actual (and official) GPS feature. Micro-HDMI and microSD return, as does the keyboard option. The $380 entry price makes the TF300 the best full-Android tablet value currently on the market.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 has always been a first choice for users who prefer to watch videos on tablet due to its beautiful AMOLED screen, which provides gloriously deep blacks and superbright colors, and fast performance, though the price is somewhat higher than that of other tablets. The tablet is the thinnest small-form tablet yet and includes expandable memory, impressive games performance, and an IR sensor that turns the tablet into a smart remote control.

Sony Tablet S

The Sony Tablet S goes above and beyond the typical Android tablet experience by offering exclusive apps, ergonomic design, PlayStation certification for mobile gaming, DLNA video and music streaming, and an integrated IR universal remote control. The industrial design is smart, and the software refinements are both practical and restrained.

Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update available for unlocked Galaxy Nexus

Have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus that isn't running on Verizon or Sprint? Well good news! The update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has started rolling out and should be hitting your phone in the next couple of days. The update brings with it Google Now, new notifications, and a much more responsive interface thanks to Project Butter.

In the Google+ post that announced this exciting bit of news, Google also mentioned that the Motorola Xoom, Nexus S, and other Galaxy Nexus phones (it presumably meant those running on Sprint and Verizon), were the next devices in line to receive the upgrade to Jelly Bean. The company also stated that the Nexus 7, which is shipping later this month, would be running the latest Android operating system--something which it had already announced at Google I/O last June.

Unfortunately, outside of the Nexus 7, Google didn't give a timeframe for when we could expect the update to become available to those other phones (and tablet). Hopefully it's sooner rather than later, but at least for now more people can enjoy the benefits of owning a Google developer device.

4.0” Sony Xperia J pictures leaked with a probable August shipment

News about Sony cell phones continues, not only about the release or shipping of new phones, but also the leaked pictures of many mysterious cell phones. Besides the much concerned Sony flagship smartphone LT30, Sony ST36i again got its leaked pictures with an official name Sony Xperia J online. And according to the leaked news online about Xperia J, it seems that the official release date of Xperia J is not far.
Sony Xperia J

Viewing from the leaked pictures from micro blogs, Sony Xperia J has very simple appearance, straightforward phone body with physical buttons on the bottom. The Xperia J is not in the NXT series, but a product for mid and low-end market users.

Even so, Sony Xperia J has very excellent hardware configuration. It features a 4.0 inches touchscreen display with FWVGA (854×480 pixels with 16:9 aspect ratio) resolution, which makes it quite suitable to watch HD videos on Xperia J. It also provides 512MB RAM and 8GB ROM storage. Other features of Sony Xperia J include: HSDPA/WCDMA network connectivity, Wi-Fi, GPS navigation, Bluetooth and memory card expansion. Meanwhile, Xperia J also features 1GHZ Qualcomm MSM7627A processor. The details about the built-in camera is still to be confirmed.

As for the official release date, as reported the Sony Xperia J ST26i would be ODM product and released this summer. If the Sony Xperia J is the new phone for Olive I, the release date is most probably to be July at308. But if it’s for Lotus, the release date then should be this August at277.

The below are some more leaked pictures of Sony Xperia J, just take a look:

Windows 7.8 vs. Windows 8 features leaked in comparison

On the Developer Conference held this June 22 developer, Microsoft announced the exisint devices would not be upgraded to Windows Phone 8 system, but will launch Windows Phone 7.8 as compensation. Countless Windows Phone users were disappointed as after all Windows Phone 7.8 isn’t the Windows Phone 8 system. What makes users more disappointing is that besides the leaked new Start screen, there aren’t any other features revealed by Microsoft to the crowed. And now, received a detailed contrast table of features between Windows Phone 7.8 and Windows Phone 8, which is showed below:
As expected, while Windows Phone 7.8 will get the new start screen with the new Tile sizes, most of the other major features aren't making the cut. Skype, RCS-e, and DataSmart are all available in WP7.8, but only as separate apps, and not integrated as with WP8. DataSmart is the app which allows users to monitor data usage, and RCS-e allows carriers to hook in data services. Not surprisingly, IE10 will be WP8 only, and WP7.8 users will have to make due with IE9 (our condolences).

Additionally, Voice Command, Bing Audio, and cloud services all seem to be staying the same from WP7.5 to WP7.8, but WP8 users will be getting more powerful versions of each. WP8 will have more voice command options, as expected, and will sync all data to the cloud. The new piece of info is that Bing Audio in WP8 is getting "improved TV recognition", which we hadn't heard about before, but seems to be a way to tag TV shows from the audio, and more than likely will shoot you into the Zune Marketplace to buy said TV show.

Top 10 most popular and powerful smartphones

In the fast developing smartphone market, people would have more and more wonderful choices on smartphones, like the upcoming iPhone 5, just released Samsung Galaxy S III, or other wonderful and powerful options like HTC One S. Apple iPhone is no doubt a good choice, but with a variety of forms and flavors, Android phones also have their own place in the market. No matter you’re going to make full use of its mobile communication function or watch HD videos on smartphones for more digital entertainment, you can have these facilities combined into one single smartphone. And today, I would like to share a Top 10 list of some most popular and powerful smartphones with all you guys.

High-end camera with lots of shooting modes
Thin, premium design
Excellent for gaming and multimedia
No microSD slot
Mediocre call quality
Bottom Line: The HTC One S is the ultimate multimedia phone, from gaming to music to snapping high quality photos.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus
4G/LTE is very fast
Ice Cream Sandwich is a real treat
Slim, curved design
No expandable memory
No Google Wallet support
Camera is just okay
Bottom Line: The best Android phone to date, the Galaxy Nexus dazzles with its curved display, sleek design, fast performance, and, of course, the Ice Cream Sandwich update.

HTC ReZound


720p display
Incredibly fast dual-core processor
Beats Audio built-in
Preloaded with bloatware
Terrible battery life
Bottom Line
If you can deal with subpar battery life, the HTC Rezound is an excellent phone that won't feel outdated anytime soon.

T-Mobile Mytouch 4G Slide


Outstanding camera
Latest software and chipset technology
Wide range of shooting modes and editing tools
Keyboard is difficult to type on
No HDMI port
Bottom Line
The MyTouch 4G Slide has one of the best cameras we've ever tested--and the rest of the phone is pretty amazing as well.



Sleek, durable design with kickstand
Solid camera with many shooting modes
Camera's shutter button doesn't work in lock mode
No LTE network yet

Dual-core processor keeps phone running smoothly
Excellent battery life over LTE
Doesn't run latest version of Android
Camera is just average
Bottom Line
The Droid Razr Maxx packs in a dual-core processor, large battery and LTE in a very thin frame.

Apple iPhone 4S 16GB
Faster, smoother performance
Superb camera
Beautiful display still better than competition
You can only upload video in 1080p
Siri not always accurate
Bottom Line
The iPhone 4S might not be the most exciting update, but the improved camera, faster performance and the addition of Siri make it a top-ranking smartphone.

Large screen is great for movies and games.
Very well designed.
Poor call quality.
Audio pickup in videos is abysmal.
Non-expandable storage

Samsung Galaxy Note
Large, bright display
Snappy performance
Pen works well with user interface
A bit too large for a phone
Not enough apps support the pen
Bottom Line
With its large display and stylus-like pen, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a refreshing departure from the smartphone pack, but its design won't please everyone. Additionally, not enough apps support the pen right now.

Nokia Lumia 900
Gorgeous AMOLED display
Great, versatile camera
Fast data speeds over LTE
Windows Phone still missing some apps and features
No 1080p video capture
Bottom Line
With a stunning display, fast data speeds, and a versatile camera, the Lumia 900 has what it takes to compete with the iPhone and with Android handsets--if Microsoft and AT&T can win over customers.

How do you think so? If you have some other candidates, please let me know in the comment part.

Rumors from Chinese sites said Retina iMac coming in October and 7.85-inch iPad to use Sharp IGZO panel

Retina iMac
A few reports have floated around today that we are filing under rumor. The first comes from a Digitimes report that claimed Apple suppliers are prepping for mass production of a new Retina iMac scheduled for July with a possible October unveiling. In May, it’s been reported that Retina iMacs were likely on the way when higher-resolution iMac display panels were spotted in Apple’s supply chain before the unveiling of the new Retina MacBook Pro at WWDC in June. Apple quietly updated the Mac Pro lineup after the event, and then it confirmed a redesigned Mac Pro was in the works for 2013, but we have heard nothing official from Apple on future iMacs.

As for the new iPad, we heard a lot about a possible 7-inch or 7.85-inch iPad recently. And today there are more roughly translated reports coming from Chinese publication (via UnwiredView) that claim Apple has a 7.85-inch iPad using a Sharp IGZO panel. There have been several reports in recent months claiming Apple is working on the device, and the The Wall Street Journal reported in February that Apple was testing displays roughly 8-inches in size. Apple looks to be at least testing these screen sizes, but we have no solid proof that anything is planned as of yet. Previous reports indicated a possible October launch for a 7-inch iPad under $250.
