Sony is utilizing its Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to develop the next generation in backing up and sharing data – “one touch backup”. Photos, videos can be backed-up, saved and shared in the cloud, or locally to its 1TB (terabyte) hard drive, all without going through a PC.
Data will be shared totally wirelessly by a simple wave of your smartphone, tablet, etc., making the whole process of saving, sharing and managing data much more efficient and less restricted.
The PCS Manager (Personal Contents Station) is due to be released on April 30, 2013 and Sony will begin taking reservations on April 1, 2013.
Sony just come to announce a brand new tablet in Japan the Xperia Tablet Z. This new tablet is 6.9mm thick and weighs 495g, which makes it the world’s thinnest and lightest 10-inch Android tablet on the market, and even thinner than the Toshiba Excite 10 LE that was once the champion in both fields, and even smaller tablets such as the iPad mini.
The Xperia Tablet Z has a 10.1-inch, 1920 x 1200 resolution ‘Reality Display’ powered by Mobile Bravia Engine 2. The design language of the tablet is similar to the recent Sony Xperia handsets, such as the Xperia Z. Also, just like the Xperia Z, the Xperia Tablet Z happens to be dust and water resistant.
Other specs : on the back of the Xperia Tablet Z is an 8 megapixel Exmor R camera with backlit CMOS sensor. Under the hood, the Xperia Tablet Z is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064 processor, refreshed by 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage space expandable with microSD card, NFC, LTE and Sony’s S-Force virtual 3D surround sound technology.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z will be sold in black and white. Right now there’s no word on the pricing and availability.
Sony has announced not one but two new portable Speaker with the SRS-BTX300 and SRS-BTX500. Announced for a Japanese launch schedule at the end of February at a price around 20,000 and 30,000 Yen respectively, the SRS-BTX300 and SRS-BTX500 comes both equipped with Bluetooth 3.0 and NFC support for NFC Capable smartphones and other devices. Slime and elegant both models are actually technically similar but comes however with 20W output with a 8hrs battery life for the SRS-BTX300 and a 40W output with a 6hrs battery life for the SRS-BTX500.
LG might already be working on an improved version of the Optimus G, the LG Optimus G Pro.
Blog of Mobile came upon some info that points to the Optimus G Pro joining the 5” 1080p fight. The quad Krait CPU will be clocked at 1.7GHz (up from 1.5GHz) and the battery capacity has been bumped up to 3000mAh. It might also pack an IR port, similar to the Sony Xperia ZL.
The rest is pretty much the same – 13MP camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, LTE connectivity, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, NFC, wallet and a couple of digital TV standards (presumably, those won’t make it to the worldwide version).
The LG Optimus G Pro will measure 139 x 70 x 10mm and weigh 160g according to rumors.
A couple of things lend some credence to the G Pro rumors – the image above was sent to Engadget by an anonymous tipster and Piet Zweegers, who sent this in to us, found out LGOptimusGPro.nl is registered by LG Electronix Benelux (there’s nothing at that domain at the moment).
This isn’t the first time we’re hearing of such a device – it sounds very close to the rumored specs of the LG Optimus G2.
If it pans out, it will be interesting because the G Pro will depart from the 16:10 aspect ratio of the Optimus G (unless the Pro has a 1200 x 1920 screen, which was mislabeled as 1080p by the rumors) and it will undoubtedly spark rumors of a Nexus 5.
HTC M7 is the Taiwanese company upcoming flagship device and supposedly a replacement for the One X. Has now a rendered image.
The rendered image looks strikingly similar to the BlackBerry L-series device that we have seen in the past, which itself sort of looks like the iPhone 5. The display is flanked by two colored plastic portions on the top and the bottom. Both areas have a rather pronounced grille area, with the top also housing the front facing camera and the various sensors. Unfortunately, this is the only picture we have for now.
The specs, as we had learned before, include a 4.7-inch, 1920 x 1080 resolution display with an incredible 468 ppi pixel density, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage space, 13 megapixel, f/2.0 rear camera and 2 megapixel front facing camera with 1080p video recording.
It is being rumored that the M7 will likely be announced at Mobile World Congress this year.
When Nokia released its TV spot showing off the image stabilization of the Lumia 920, it got into a bit of trouble because it turned out that the video wasn’t shot by a Lumia 920 at all.
Now that it’s on the market, some Lumia enthusiasts have taken it upon themselves to recreate the original ad, this time with the smartphone itself.
According to Nokia, the Lumia 920′s optical image stabilization is unparalleled in its ability to reduce shakiness and make your videos look smooth.
Here’s how the device performs in this real life :
And, in light of Nokia’s debacle, the guys have included a making-of video :
