So the iPhone 5 has been announced – nothing new

September 12th, 2012

Source – Engadget

Apple may be notoriously secretive and tight lipped, but the company appears to be getting worse and worse at actually keeping things under wraps. The iPhone 5 appears to be the most leaked handset in existence. Thankfully, the suspense is over, the next-gen iPhone is finally here and it does, in fact, go by the numerical title of 5. Just like the parts that have been circulating this is a glass and aluminum affair and, at 7.6mm it’s a full 18 percent thinner than the 4S. It’s even a full 20 percent lighter at 112 grams. It’s all those amazing things and it packs a larger 4-inch in-cell display. The new version of Apple’s Retina panel is 1136 x 640, which clocks in at a more than respectable 326ppi. It also sports better color saturation with full sRGB rendering. That new longer screen allows for an extra set of icons to be displayed on the home screen, and first party apps have already been tweaked to take advantage of the additional real estate. The iWork suite, Garage Band and iMovie have all been updated. Older apps will still work too, though they’ll be displayed in a letterbox format until an update is issued. The tweaked ratio puts the iPhone 5 display closer to 16:9, but it’s not quite there.

The most exciting news is likely the addition of LTE. There’s still HSPA+, EV-DO, EDGE and all that jazz on board, but it’s the true 4G that is really generating excitement. In the US Sprint, Verizon and AT&T will all be able to take advantage of the single chip data and voice LTE solution inside. And, if you’re stuck on one of those tiered data plans, the 802.11 a/b/g/n antenna should help you keep your wireless usage in check.

If the brand new radios weren’t enough of a raw spec update to get your geek blood pumping, the new A6 CPU inside should push you over the edge. Apple claims its a full two times faster than the chip inside the 4S, but we’ll have to wait and see how accurate that assertion is. The A6 is reportedly 22 percent smaller than its predecessor, which probably helped Cupertino achieve such slim dimension on the iPhone 5 and it’s also more energy efficient — allowing the handset to chug along for 8 hours of talk time, despite the addition of LTE. Keeping your data usage to Wi-Fi will allow you to milk up to 10 hours out of the device.

As for the camera, it’s more or less the same as that in the iPhone 4S, just a little bit slimmer. It’s a backlit 8 megapixel sensor with a 5 element lens and an f/2.4 aperture. The biggest improvement in the image capturing department is the “shutter” speed. Apple is claiming the new set up is up to 40 percent quicker at turning a beautiful sunset into a cold hard series of 1s and 0s. There’s also a new panoramic shooting mode that stitches together an effective 28 megapixel photo. And, what camera update would be complete without the ability to capture 1080p video. The front facing cam has also received a might boost, getting its own backlit sensor capable of capturing 720p clips. Even better, that iSight cam can be paired up with FaceTime for high-res video chats over that fancy new 4G network you’ll be surfing on.

If you thought there wasn’t anything else that could possibly be improved, you’re wrong. Apple even gave the microphone an upgrade to a five-magnet transducer that should improve voice quality on networks that support it and enable Siri to better decipher your mumblings. And, as expected, the dock connector has gotten a long-overdue revamp. The eight-pin plug is 80 percent smaller and all digital — it even has a catchy marketing name: Lightning.

Obviously, no new iPhone would be complete without a new version of iOS, and the 5 will be rocking iOS 6 right out of the box.

Microsoft patents modular Windows Phone with swappable batteries, keyboard, and Gamepad – Amazing Idea/Concept

September 23rd, 2011
Just posting this as is from Engadget!
Finally an amazing idea for smart phones!
Not like the failed MODO experiment this might be amazing!

We’ve seen slider phones with speakersgamepads, and of course, the standard keypad — but what if you want to swap out your slider accessory for something new? A new patent from Microsoft is exploring the possibility, showing off a concept smartphone with a sliding modular bay. Tired of that keyboard? Replace it with a gamepad, or a life-giving battery pack. According to the patent claims, some of the modular components would even function wirelessly, citing a touchscreen module which doubles as a wireless handset or a media remote. Neat? You bet, but we wouldn’t get our hopes up — Microsoft typically keeps out of the handset manufacturing game, and the last modular phone to pique our interest didn’t exactly make a splash.

The ‘Note’ has amassive 5.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus 1280 x 800 HD display.

It also comes with Samsung S Pen software, which is similar to HTC’s Scribe software in that it lets users draw or write on the screen with a special pen, take screen shots, and input text.
It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with TouchWiz and includes Samsung’s new ChatOn messaging software.
Other features of the Samsung Note include a dual-core 1.4GHz processor; 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus, flash, and 1080p HD video capture; 2-megapixel user-facing camera for video chats; aGPS, NFC (carrier optional), Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi; and accelerometer, light sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor, and barometer.

Samsung said the device also includes LTE, but didn’t mention what spectrum the LTE radio operates in.
Samsung has also gone to great lengths to install plenty of business features on the Note.
Pricing and availability were not announced.
