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.
Even if we are still quite a way from the launch of BlackBerry 10 devices, recently the RIM CEO Thorsten Heins was spotted with one of them in public.
At a Lakers game a few days ago, both Thorsten Heins and RIM Senior Vice President, Software Product Management Andrew Bocking were spotted using BB10 phones and taking pictures with them. You can see that the phone Heins is using has the usual BlackBerry sticker on the back that they reserve for test devices but it’s strange seeing the CEO of the company in public using devices that are yet to be announced publicly.
Does he really wants us to believe that him being in the front seat of a popular sports game with hundreds of photographers around and making no attempts to hide the device was all just a coincidence? Not to mention why a sports photographer would have any interest in the CEO of RIM taking pictures with their new phone? .
