Top 10 Best Apple iPad Tablet Alternatives to Use

Apple has become quite a trend-setter when it comes to design. First the “iPod” gave birth to a whole new world of portable music players, then the “iPhone” emerged a new generation of mobile phone devices, and recently came the “iPad”, which started turning heads towards touchscreen mobile computing (that already existed).

Although it’s almost guaranteed that the Apple iPad will sell well, there are still many complaints about the lack of various features such as multitasking (which might appear later this year), and the lack of flash support, pen input amongst other things.

It happened with the iPhone and it looks set to happen again with the iPad; consumer electronics manufacturers are rushing to bring out their own touch-screen tablet computers, with the latest being the WePad from German company Neofonie. Here, we round-up some of the most likely ‘iPad killers’!

So wait! The iPad isn’t the only game in town. Sure, it might have a fancy-pants interface, but each of the follow ten tablets win the hardware fight, which is just as important to a lot of consumers. As interesting as the iPad is, no matter what Apple wants us to think it’s by no means the first tablet. What better way to share the tablet love than to give you 10 alternatives to the iPad, which could easily be deemed as serious iPad Killers.

Top smartphone duel – Sony Xperia Z1 vs. iPhone 5


The iPhone 5 is an outstanding device. Even though nearly a year has passed since it got launched, Apple's finest still ranks among the top smartphones out there, loved by millions of owners worldwide. That is why a comparison like this is inevitable – a comparison between the newly-announced Sony Xperia Z1 and the tried and trusty iPhone 5. Can a 12-month-old handset rival an upcoming phone? Well, let's take a look.

Design
In terms of appearance, both smartphones have a lot to impress with. We'd say that the two look and feel equally great, which comes as no surprise since the Sony Xperia Z1 and the iPhone 5 are put together with utmost attention to detail. The premium materials used in their construction only adds to their high-end feel. Sony has chosen to use tempered glass for the Z1's back panel while the iPhone 5 is made of anodized aluminum. What sets these smartphones apart, however, is their size. In all honesty, the Xperia Z1 feels a bit bulky, partially due to its rectangular shape, but at least we know it is waterproof. The iPhone 5, on the other hand, is a lot more compact and perfectly usable with a single hand. It does, however, come with a smaller screen. Speaking of which...

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 render got leaked alongside with first price hints

There’ve been so much rumors and reports on the upcoming third iteration of Samsung's phablet line under the Galaxy Note branding, and even seen a few rectangular prototype mules leaked here and there. Previously, there’ve been reports saying that the Galaxy Note III would be announced in IFA 2013, which is finally proved to be false since the official release of September 25th announced. With so many leaks, the specs of this new device are gradually clear to the public. Now a render arrives, based on those leaked frames and front panels, looking so convincing, that it might as well be a presser.

Note-3-render
Thin, rectangular shape with minimum bezel seems to be in store for us with the Note 3, the render tries to relay, and the S-Pen stylus is retouched a little bit as well, compared to what we have with the Note II, conveying possible added functionalities. What do you think, do the renders look convincing?

Note-3-vs-Note-II 
Meanwhile we got the first quote of the alleged Note 3 pricing, courtesy of a Russian electronics retailer, which expects to carry the phablet in the end of September with a price tag of 29 900 rubles, which equates to about 900 USD. Russia is always a very expensive market for these new gadgets, so based on this quote and historical differences between prices in Moscow and other major markets, we'd wager to guess it will land with about 700 USD/EUR starting price elsewhere, which would be in line with last year's Note II introductory.

Previous-Note-3-render
Interestingly, the publication also says that the price of the Galaxy S4 will be slashed after the Note 3 introduction there, which we hope will translate to other markets as well. As for the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch, the retailer cites a starting price of 14 990 rubles in Russia, which translates to about $450, and availability of the first batches is scheduled for the beginning of October, meaning an IFA 2013 expo launch just two days from now seems imminent.

High-resolution images of Samsung Galaxy Note 3’s 5.7 inches screen got leaked online

No one could deny that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 has got quite a large amount of concern in the market. The rumors about Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone have been lasting for months, until Samsung officially confirmed the Sep. 4th release event. Just like Apple, who is always trying to keep their new product as top secret, Samsung is also hiding all the details of Galaxy Note 3 from the public. However, it would appear that secrecy has become an increasingly elusive target these days for Samsung. With IFA2013 just around the corner, leaks are becoming more and more common.
By summing all the reports, leaks and rumors, while we think we know plenty about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the looks of the device itself have been the one area where Samsung has managed to keep the lid firmly shut. There’re plenty of prototype devices, but we haven't seen the actual device just yet. Now, this has changed at least partially, several high-res images of Samsung Galaxy Note’s 5.7 inches screen display have been leaked online. These pictures are from some supply chain in China, who claimed to show us the right screen display that Samsung would assemble on its Galaxy Note 3.

Top 4 Free AVCHD Media Players to Play AVCHD/MTS Videos on PC or Laptop

"I have a Canon HF100. I love it! However, I cannot seem to find a Windows app that will play the raw AVCHD files from the HF100's SD card. I have tried the latest nightly build of VLC but it is unstable and fails to play the video all the way through."

10 cheap smartphones from companies you've actually heard of (2013 edition)

Smartphones are awesome, there's no doubt about that. They take photos, play music, run apps, and do all kinds of neat things that weren't even imaginable just a few years ago. But at the same time, they can be pretty expensive. A top-of-the-line smartphone may cost well over $600 unlocked, and many people just aren't willing or able to pay that much to own one.

Thankfully, there's the low-end spectrum of the smartphone market. There's a whole bunch of not-so-expensive devices that offer many of the core features expected from a smartphone without costing an arm and a leg. And we aren't talking about those no-name Android shipped in white boxes directly from China. There's a fair number of affordable brand-name smartphones, and in this post we've put together some of the cheapest among them. All of the smartphones listed here have been launched on the market in 2013 so they are all pretty new models running recent versions of their operating systems.

The specs of Apple iPhone 5S are also reported frequently online, one of which is about the Fingerprint Scanner.

Apple iPhone 5S Fingerprint Scanner

French blog Nowhereelse.fr, which has been known to leak components for unreleased Apple products in the past, has published images that show the internal components of the alleged iPhone 5S. The photo set compares Apple's next iPhone alongside the current generation iPhone, outlining the key differences between the two handsets. One pair of images depicts a redesigned metal spacer cushion near the home button that features a new cut out for additional components. This has sparked speculation that a fingerprint scanner could be placed in this area, although there's no way to know for sure until Apple makes the announcement.

Top 10 Android Apps and Tips That Will Speed up Your Android Device

With news of the introduction of Android 4.3 some of you certainly have something exciting to look forward to, as the update makes its way around the globe. While this is a time of joy for some, do not be surprised if the next iteration of Google's OS isn't getting everyone as excited – for many it's a reminder of their own troubles with Android. To put it bluntly: only 38.9% of all Android users are running a version of Jelly Bean. That means, roughly speaking, some 500 million devices are missing out on all the performance improvements that versions 4.x and above bring to the table. What's more, if your device is among the ones left out, it's usually the case that your device is also probably running on some aging hardware.

With a userbased edging on the billion, making sweeping statements for all of the Android ecosystem would be a gross oversimplification. There is one thing that we dare postulate, though: everybody hates lag, even those of you running Google's latest and greatest. Hundreds of millions downloads of apps promising to boost your device back to its former glory or simply keep it in good shape are an objective indication of that.

Most of you have come across such apps, many have them installed as you read this. As you have probably figured by now – no one-click solution exists. As always, if you want good results, you have to roll up your sleeves and get a little dirty. The guide below is aimed to be fairly simple, but there's also something for the more adventurous of you.

All new and highlight features of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean

Google has officially announced Android 4.3, and it’s another gradual update to Jelly Bean, but what’s really new about it? We've broken down the 10 biggest new features including the ones that made it into the highlights - the new multi-user system and the fact that with 4.3 Android should run even faster and smoother.

It is adding tons of possibilities for accessory makers with Bluetooth Smart and Low Energy support. It is opening a new realm for those that want to implement location in their apps with hardware geofencing. All of that is right below, with a quick explanation of each new features in Google’s own words, take a look.

Mobile OS Comparison - iOS 7 vs. Android 4.2 vs. Windows Phone 8 vs. BlackBerry 10

On the WWDC 2013, Apple officially released iOS 7, and declared it to come with “Biggest Change Since the Original iPhone”. By checking what’s new in iOS 7, we could easily get the right point of iOS 7, like the multitasking preview, Control Center, AireDrop, etc. These changes are more cosmetic and iterative than they are groundbreaking. That's completely understandable; not every update can spark a revolution.
However, apart from a few notable innovations, iOS 7 doesn't seem like it's enough to overturn criticism that its growth has stalled, that it's less innovative than archrival Android, and that it borrows heavily from other competitors (in truth, they all steal ideas from each other). At least not at this point in the game.

How to get to Google Now on the Samsung Galaxy S4

Google Now Galaxy S 4
On many Android phones with on-screen keys, getting to Google Now -- the excellent predictive/voice-controlled search app in Android 4.1 and above -- is simply a matter of swiping up from the bottom of the screen. It's not quite as simple as that on the new Samsung Galaxy S4, but fear not, there are still a few quick and easy ways to get to the new Google Search app.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1
Samsung’s second Tab announcement today brings news of the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, which as you may have guessed is a 10.1-inch version of the Galaxy Tab 3 line. Spec-wise, there’s not much to separate the Tab 3 10.1 from the 8-inch variant announced alongside it. You’ve got a 1.6GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM (less than the 8-incher, oddly), 16 or 32GB of storage backed up by microSD expandability.
It’s also running the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean along with the most recent iteration of Samsung’s TouchWiz interface. And you’ve got Wifi, 3G and 4G LTE connectivity options available, as well as Bluetooth 4.0.

Android 4.3 gets leaked again right after skipping Google I/O

After failing to appear at Google I/O, evidence that Android 4.3 is forthcoming soon has been leaking out slowly. Now, the first photos of the next sweet iteration of the mobile OS running on a device have been spotted. It looks to be a new flavor of Jelly Bean rather than the whole slice of Key Lime Pie.

Android Jelly Bean 4.3

Photos that appear to show a Nexus 4 running Android 4.3 at the 2013 Thailand Mobile Expo have surfaced on the xdadevelopers forum, home to many an Android leak, hack, and more.

Apple iPhone 6 concept becomes more detailed – 4.5 inch edge to edge display and up to 20MP main camera

How about this for a concept Apple iPhone 6 model? A sleek 4.5 inch display that is completely edge to edge with resolution of 754 x 1296. The pixel density works out to 333ppi. That would compare with the 441ppi on the 5 inch screen used on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the 326ppi on the Apple iPhone 5. No doubt, it would also deliver amazing movie experience for people to watch HD movies on iPhone 6. The complete elimination of the bezel actually shows off why one is needed. Without a bezel, your hand is covering up part of the display.

As long as we're basically dreaming for this concept, how about the dual 2.8GHz quad-core A7 processor? The touch enabled areas by the home button for this iOS 8/iPhone 6 concept would allow you to double tap to multitask, tap to go home, or customize the destination of the button yourself. The Apple iPhone 6 in this concept is made up of 60% carbon and 40% aluminum. This combination lets the device have the toughness of carbon but also offer the lightweight feeling of aluminum. And the aluminum-carbon body allows the Apple iPhone 6 concept to be water resistant in 2 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

9 best features of Microsoft’s newly released Xbox One

Previously, we had made some predictions on next-gen Xbox features. Now, with Microsoft finally joining the eighth generation of videogame consoles — and its system is meant to make every other system obsolete, it’s time for us to see what the highlights the Xbox One would bring to us. Meet the Xbox One, described alternately (and often simultaneously) as “instant,” “simple,” “complete,” “interactive,” and “personalized.” It’s apparently equal parts computer, console, and TV, continuing the tectonic technological conjoining that was kickstarted three generations ago with the Playstation.
Microsoft Xbox One

In an hour-long launch event today, Microsoft unveiled Xbox One and its many new features, some of which are scintillating and some of which are silly. It also debuted some exclusive partnerships (Spielberg! Call of Duty!), almost all of which are potentially awesome. Among all the features of Microsoft Xbox One, the highlights, below:

How to get lock screen widgets on the Samsung Galaxy S4

When you first pick up the Samsung Galaxy S4, it might appear that lock screen widgets aren't available. After all, the default lock screen is just a big clock widget with "life companion" or some other message up top. But as an Android 4.2 device, the S4 includes full support for lock screen widgets, it's just a case of enabling them in the phone's lock screen settings.
Samsung Galaxy S 4

Head to “Settings > My device > Lock screen” and check "Multiple widgets." Once you've done that, you're able to swipe to the right and add more lock screen panels. There's the standard list of Google widgets as well as some new stuff from Samsung, including a new WatchON widget. This ties into the WatchON app, which is the Peel-powered universal remote included on the Galaxy S4, giving you an expandable universal remote right from your lock screen. Third-party offerings like Dashclock Widget should work just fine, too.

Google confirmed Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S 4 with Stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS on Google I/O

No doubt, Google I/O conference would be the biggest focus these days. But simply from today’s 3-hour keynote of Google I/O, we have to say that this Google I/O conference is not a conference for hardware. Previously there’re reports and rumors that Google would announce X Phone or next Nexus 4, which now have been proved to be rumors only. The only hardware appearing on Google I/O is so called Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S 4, which is powered by stock Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS, while the current Samsung Galaxy S 4 of the phone which runs Samsung's TouchWiz UI over Android 4.2.2.

It’s reported that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition will be available next month and will support T-Mobile's bands. We do not know at this point if the phone will be sold in the Google Play Store and what the pricing will be. Previous speculation had a newer version of the Google Nexus 4 being unveiled at Google I/O with 32GB of native storage and 4G LTE connectivity. That phone still might be unwrapped on Wednesday.

Top 8 Most Anticipated Things on Google I/O 2013: New Nexus Q, Android 4.3, Chrome Dongle, New Gmail, and More

Google I/O 2013 is this week. Hard to believe, right? It seems like only a few weeks ago that we were freaking out as the Nexus 7, Nexus Q and Jelly bean (Android 4.1) were all being unveiled through Google Play as we were entering the day 1 keynote of 2012s I/O. But here we are, almost a year removed from that event and six months out from Googles cancelled winter event that was supposed to feature the Nexus 4, Nexus 10, new version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.2), and an updated HSPA+ version of the Nexus 7. So as we approach next week, we thought we should drop some of our own predictions, include a few rumors that are floating about, and even a few whispers that have entered our inbox over the last week or so.
Google I/O 2013


Ready? Here is our list of Google I/O predictions.

New Nexus Q:  We’ve talked a lot about the return of the Nexus Q on various DL Shows, because we all love the idea that it could become something phenomenal. As you all know though, the Nexus Q was announced at I/O last year, then essentially killed off weeks later before it ever shipped to anyone. Google realized it had either half-assed the product or that it really was lacking any sort of real functionality that could justify its steep price. So is it going to return? Sources of ours have led us to believe that it is indeed returning, only this time with an emphasis on gaming. Details are scarce, so we aren’t sure if it’ll take the OUYA approach or be something different altogether. There is also a chance that the hardware changes to be more cube-like, however, I hope that it doesn’t. I personally love the hardware of last year’s Nexus Q.

Google reportedly to release new Nexus 7 as the highlight of Google I/O for the delay of next-gen iPad mini

In the research note obtained by AppleInsider, Kuo notes the new Nexus 7 will feature upgraded specs, such as a high-resolution screen, better cameras and wireless charging, but will maintain an entry-level price of $199. Apple is also rumored to be launching an updated iPad mini sometime in the third quarter, but that timeline is in question as recent reports have said production of the small form factor tablet hit a snag.
Next Nexus 7 specs

Google is likely to lose $5 to $10 per unit sold with the aggressive pricing, suggesting profits will come from media purchases and ad revenue. Kuo sees the distribution model being the same as 2012's version, with Google selling the Nexus 7 through its website, while Asustek and other retail outlets take care of higher-end iterations with more storage.
