Micromax Launches A84 Superfone Elite Android Handset In India-Price in India

The A84 also gets a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash which is quite capable of taking care of most of your casual imaging needs. The rear camera can also capture videos – however, Micromax hasn’t revealed in the official spec sheet, the phone’s video recording resolution details. We do however expect it to do at least VGA quality recording at 30 fps.  The phone also gets a front camera for video calling and video chatting purposes.

Micromax has priced the A84 Elite at Rs.9999

Tiny camera to rival the Pros

This is a review of the best pocket camera ever made. The Sony RX100 has a huge one-inch sensor - the biggest ever stuffed into a pocketable zoom camera
But first, a history lesson.
For years camera makers worried about competition from only one source: other camera makers. But in the end, the most dangerous predator came from an unexpected direction: cellphones.
Today, more photos are taken with phones than with point-and-shoot cameras. On photo sites like Flickr, the iPhone is the source of more photos than any real camera. No wonder sales of inexpensive pocket cameras are going down each year.
Cameras in phones are a delightful development for the masses. If you have your camera with you, you're more likely to take photos and more likely to capture amazing images.
But in a sense they are also great for camera makers, which are being forced to double down in areas where smartphones are useless: Zoom lenses. High resolution. Better photo quality. Flexibility and advanced features. That's why, even if sales of pocket cameras are down, sales of high-end cameras are up.
Now you know why the time is ripe for the new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100. It's a tiny, pants-pocketable camera that will be available in late July for the nosebleed price of $650.
Or, rather, won't be available. It will be sold out everywhere. I'll skip to the punch line: No photos this good have ever come from a camera this small.
The first reason is easy to grasp. The Sony RX100 has a huge one-inch sensor - the biggest ever stuffed into a pocketable zoom camera. That's not as big as the sensors in S.L.R.'s and other lens-swappable cameras. But it's about four times the area of the previous pocket-camera photo-quality champs, like the Olympus XZ-1 and the S100. (The RX100's shiny black metal body looks exactly like them.)
A big sensor means big pixels, which gives you less grain in low light, better color depth and great dynamic range - the spectrum from darkest to lightest pixels.
A big sensor is also a prerequisite for that professional blurry background look. The RX100 easily achieves those soft backgrounds, a rarity in compact cameras.
The other star factor in the Sony is its Carl Zeiss lens, whose maximum aperture (lens opening) is f/1.8. That's the widest aperture you can buy on a pocket camera. That, too, helps explain its ability to blur the background, and its spectacular results in low light.

HTC One XXL could come with quad core Krait processor

HTC is planning a new device, the One XXL which may come with, yes you guessed it right, giant specs. A post on the XDA Developers forum states that the phone could have a 4.7-inch display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor with Krait cores, 2GB of RAM, 8MP camera and 1.8MP front facing camera. Some sources have said that the display could be bumped up to 5.5 inches, but all this needs to just be taken with a pinch of salt, till something concrete comes out. The concept below seems to have a massive display with a thin bezel which we quite like, but again this is just a concept display.

A mock up image
A mock up image

The name XXL itself makes us believe that if HTC plans on launching this product then it would be a befitting competitor to the rumoured Galaxy Note II, and this will make for a very interesting battle. The Galaxy Note has been a success worldwide and in the Indian subregion as well. This Note mini-tab with its ultra large screen and powerful specs has found a lot of love the world over. The large mobile handset that could have passed off as a small tablet offered users from all walks of life a unique feature set that was apt for business, media or any other function. But now, according to the latest rumours making the rounds, the Galaxy Note II is apparently in the works.

The next generation of the Galaxy Note may feature a Super AMOLED 5.5-inch display with 360 pixel density. The presumed Galaxy Note II is also said to feature a faster CPU and more memory. That will be quite a step up from the current model. As mobile processors get faster and more powerful, it’s anyone’s guess what the new Note would have under the hood, but we’re looking at a dual-core Exynos 5250 processor with 1.5GB of RAM at the moment. The blueprint for the Galaxy Note’s success has already been made as customers have started liking ‘the bigger, the better’ conundrum. If HTC do launch the XXL with specs similar to the rumoured ones of the Galaxy Note II, along with the more beautiful HTC Sense on top, then we’re set for a tough fight in the near future.

Intex i-Tab

The sub Rs. 10,000 price point seems to be getting tablets that offer you quite a lot of bang for your buck. This price range is populated by more than few contenders, including the Micromax Funbook, iBerry Auxus AX02 and the HCL MeTab U1 to name a few. All these tablets run on Google’s Android OS.
Adding another tablet to the budget category, today we have the Intex i-Tab that runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and boasts of some decent specifications under the hood. Is it enough to take on the competition?
Look & Feel
The first thing that will surprise you is the look of the Intex i-Tab. Most budget tablets have opted to have a 7-inch display, but the Intex i-Tab has an 8-inch display and that’s not all. Rather than opting for a 16:9/16:10 aspect ratio with the screen, the device has a 4:3 aspect ratio.
The device is made entirely out of plastic but the build doesn’t feel cheap. The back of the Intex i-Tab is plastic but and has a matte finish which feels quite good.
The front of the Intex i-Tab houses the 8-inch 4:3 display that boasts of a resolution of 800x600. The front also has the video calling VGA camera. There are no physical buttons on the face of the device, which is nice giving the device a clean finish. The device however compromises on the rear camera but it isn’t missed.
In terms of connectivity, all the ports are at the right side of the device (when held in landscape mode). The Intex i-Tab has the power button, a mini HDMI out, DC in, headphones jack, mini USB, microSD card slot and a full sized USB port. At the top of the device we have the volume rocker and a rocker that houses the menu and home button. Although these buttons are fairly small, they get the job done quite well nonetheless.
Features & Performance
Straight out of the box, the device runs on Android 2.3.1 Gingerbread. This is a bit of a letdown considering that we have seen the rise of budget tablets that run Android 4.0 ICS out-of-the-box.
Under the hood, the Intex i-Tab is powered by a 1GHz single core Cortex A8 CPU and has 1GB RAM, which is nice. It offers 8GB internal storage where as the competition offers 4GB. The touchscreen is capacitive in nature and very comfortable to use. Since the aspect ratio is 4:3, it is very comfortable to type in both portrait mode as well as landscape mode. The touchscreen is very smooth and responsive.
The first time you switch on the Intex i-Tab, you may think that the device runs Android 4.0 ICS, but don’t be fooled. This is just a skin and a pretty good one at that. It mimics Google’s latest OS pretty well from the lock screen to the ever-present back, home and menu button in the lower left corner of the screen. The skin is one reason why you don’t miss a physical home button on the face of the device but the skin isn’t perfect. Launch an app and the home, menu and back buttons vanish from the display which is not the case with ICS. In ICS, these buttons are present, no matter what.
Playing Angry Birds and Pool Master Pro on the device was a fun experience. The touchscreen response was nice, graphics were smooth and the audio was clear. The 4:3 aspect ratio of the Intex i-Tab's display doesn’t prove to be a hindrance and the game ran pretty smoothly.
Browsing the web on the Intex i-Tab was a good experience. The keyboard is smooth and easy to type on, web pages rendered nicely and pinching to zoom felt good although rendering while zooming did stutter. On the Peacekeeper Benchmark (a benchmark for the browser), the device scored 198 which is quite good. The Micromax Funbook scored 213 where as the iBerry Auxus AX02 scored 197.
The Intex i-Tab claims 1080p HD video playback support and we were more than happy to put this claim to the test. We ran a bunch of 1080p HD trailers in .MP4 format on the device and they ran absolutely smoothly without any jitters. The only problem with the device was that with its aspect ratio, a lot of the display’s real estate was lost due to the black bars. This isn’t a big deal but does feel like a hindrance.
If you are not in a Wi-Fi zone, the device can connect to the Internet via a 3G dongle as it supports full USB input. If you have an Ethernet cable with you, the device comes with a USB to Ethernet convertor that works really well. Although it restricts the way in which you use the device, the option is a nice addition since it’s not necessary that your house has a Wi-Fi network. The adapter is big and clunky to use but can act as a lifesaver if the situation calls for it.
Being a budget device, the device does cut out on some features. There is no Bluetooth on the Intex i-Tab and it also compromises on a SIM card slot.

Dell to launch Ubuntu-based PCs in India

Dell India has announced it will soon launch personal computers based on the free Linux distro, Ubuntu. Dell has entered into a partnership with Canonical Ltd., the sponsor of the Ubuntu project, to sell netbooks and laptops with the open source software.

According to Canonical CEO Jane Silber, Ubuntu-based devices, including the Dell Inspiron 14R and 15R, will be available in the market from this week. Also, a number of new Dell models with Ubuntu are slated to release this year. Dell currently sells PCs loaded with Microsoft's Windows operating system, which is a paid software. While talking to the media, Silber said the partnership will help the company increase penetration in the country.
Sameer Garde, President, Dell India, said, “With Ubuntu, these machines offer our customers a compelling mobile or in-home computing proposition, with the benefit of Dell quality and security. I am confident that they will prove attractive to both home and business users.”
According to Garde, the Ubuntu-based PCs will help push mobile computing in the country. “The Indian government has been fairly supportive of the vision behind Ubuntu. The Supreme Court of India is using the software in 20,000 desktops,” he adds.

The launch is aimed at educational institutions to push growth. Silber reveals the University of Delhi is already using the software in 10,000 desktops and various Assam schools are also using it.

Microsoft and Google Suddenly Want to Be Like Apple

 On Monday, Microsoft shocked the tech world by announcing a pair of Windows 8 tablets, both dubbed Microsoft Surface. But it wasn't just the press event's mysterious nature that made the news so stunning.

For the first time, Microsoft will make its own Windows PCs. The company will be in direct competition with hardware partners such as HP and Dell, and judging from early reactions, Microsoft is in a good position to win. The potential effects of Surface on the PC market can't be understated.
And yet, anyone who's paid attention to the tech industry for the last five years shouldn't be too surprised. Microsoft's approach with Surface--designing the hardware in tandem with the software—is the same approach that Apple has taken for decades. And Apple's method is paying off--just look at the rise of the iPhone and iPad, and the success of the MacBook Air. It took a few years for other companies to catch on, but now it's finally happening.
"We believe that any intersection between human and machine can be made better when all aspects of the experience--hardware and software--are considered in working together," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said at the Surface press event. You could probably attribute that quote to Steve Jobs and get away with it.

Microsoft's not the only company that's taken a liking to Apple's approach. Google also intends to build more of its own hardware. A new Google-branded tablet, manufactured by Asus, may be announced next week at the Google I/O developers conference, according to numerous reports. Several more Google devices, including new Nexus phones, are also reportedly on the way. Don't forget that Google now owns a hardware maker, Motorola, which may start churning out its own Nexus hardware in the future.
Google has built Nexus phones (in conjunction with a hardware partner) before, but the emphasis is different now. Nexus devices were once meant to be a reference for developers and hardware makers. Now, Google seems to view them as a way to deliver Android software and Google Play services directly to consumers, unmodified by other companies and untainted by bloatware.
“We want to give you a place to purchase Nexus devices that work really well with your digital entertainment,” Andy Rubin, Google's senior vice president of mobile and digital content, said back in April, after the company started selling the Galaxy Nexus phone directly. It sounds like Google's learned that iTunes is as big of a hook for Apple as the core iOS software. Again, it's software, services, and hardware all rolled into one.
I see this as good news for consumers. The Dells and HPs of the world may not be pleased, but they have no choice but to play along, since they have no other companies to turn to besides Google and Microsoft. (HP tried to control its own software destiny with WebOS, but failed spectacularly, and now the company is recommitted to Windows.)
Apple needs better competition, particularly in tablets. By competing with their hardware partners—and learning some lessons from Apple--Microsoft and Google may end up raising the bar for everyone

Microsoft Surface: Wi-Fi Only at Launch

Complete Coverage

We may have an answer to one of the big questions about Microsoft's Surface. The software maker's tablets will be available only with Wi-Fi at launch, according to an online report. That's bad news for road warriors hoping to pick up a Surface with wireless broadband access for business trips, but maybe the wait for a Surface with built-in 3G or LTE-connected Surface won't be long.
It's unclear what Microsoft's plans are; nevertheless, Bloomberg cites two “people familiar with the matter” who say Surface will "initially go on sale without a connection to mobile-phone networks.” Did you catch that? Surface reportedly won't have 3G or LTE connectivity built in when it initially goes on sale.
That sounds to me like Microsoft may release the ARM-based Windows 8 Surface tablet, dubbed Surface for Windows RT, as a Wi-Fi-only tablet in the fall. Then the more high-powered Intel-based Surface for Windows 8 Pro would follow a few months later with mobile connectivity baked in. That's speculation, but it seems logical.
Surface RTis designed for home users. It will run on an ARM processor, have slower USB 2.0 ports (Surface Pro supports USB 3.0), and 32GB or 64GB of storage. Most people buying this device are looking for the basics: e-mail, Web browsing, online videos, social networking, and some basic desktop programs (Word, Excel, rudimentary photo editing). More often than not, home users don't take their devices beyond their front door. And when they do it's usually to a Starbucks, airport, or college campus where Wi-Fi networks are available.
Adding Wi-Fi connectivity through a MiFi or other plug-in mobile device is an option for the early Surface user who wants more. It's an added expense, but it least it's an option -- unlike with the USB-less iPads.
Surface Pro, on the other hand, will be better equipped for professionals who need a machine they can take to job sites. These users also tend to need Internet access even if a Wi-Fi network isn't present. Important specs for Surface Pro include a faster Intel Core-i processor, larger storage capacity (up to 128GB), USB 3.0, microSDXC reader, and digital pen technology (for graphic artists and others who are into that kind of thing). Surface Pro is the machine you want in order to work, at least based on the specs, and it would be a strong candidate for a mobile connectivity option.
Microsoft hasn't announced any launch dates for Surface other than to say Surface RT will be available during the Windows 8 launch. Surface Pro will be available about three months later. Windows 8 is generally expected around October or November, which would put the Surface Pro release in early 2013.

60000 GB Hard Drive from Seagate

Makers of hard drives, Seagate Technology today demonstrated a new technology that allows you to place up to one trillion bits per square inch of surface plates the hard disk.

Makers of hard drives, Seagate Technology today demonstrated a new technology that allows you to place up to one trillion bits per square inch of surface plates the hard disk.


Seagate said that this technology has no record of superdense none of the other manufacturers drive. 

As described in the company over the next 10 years,  
Seagate will launch a 3.5-inch hard drives
the capacity of which will be up to 60 terabytes
By comparison, today’s most capacious drive models have a capacity 
of 3 terabytes or 620 billion bits per square inch.
Seagate said that the latest technology trends time and again prove the old maxim: “too much hard drive does not happen.” Thus, the social networking site Facebook now stores about 100 petabytes alone pictures and videos. 
At the same time, many now refuse storage from hard drives, preferring a faster but less roomy,  
SSD-drives. Seagate said that from their point of view, even a 10-year-term storage systems can not completely abandon the hard drives because of their phenomenal roominess. 
To place a terabit of data per square inch of surface Seagate uses magnetic recording technology
heated ( HAMR – heat-assisted magnetic recording)
in which ultra-precise laser to literally “burn data on the substrate of an iron alloy.  
HAMR technology is in development for nearly perch years but today it is still in its infancy.
Today’s commercial hard disk drives used in most cases perpendicular magnetic recording technology  
(PMR – perpendicular magnetic recording)
which has some limitations. 
For example, if the magnetic “grain” to place too close to each other, trying to achieve higher recording densities, 
then they can begin to interfere with each other, not allowing the read head to receive the data. 
With HAMR laser system raises the temperature of the plate to 650 g Kelvin (about 377 degrees Celsius), but in a very short time – about one nanosecond. 
At high temperatures the effect of magnetic interference is greatly reduced, 
allowing you to encode data on the disk is much denser and read them later at lower temperatures. 
Seagate say they are not yet ready to announce when the first HAMR-drives will be available, but predict that the first models will have a capacity of about 10 terabytes.

Leaps Motion-Hand gestured controlled 3D technology

Imagination has its own wings. And to give wing is what technology has always strived for.

It is a complex optical tracking device that captures the motion of fingers and hands by a combination of Infra red LED's and cameras. Its can capture hundreds of points at a time. In addition it uses only about two percent of CPU's memory hence making it faster. Its sensors can detect the movement of hundreds of millimetres in a space of eight cubic meters. It is 200 times more sensitive than any capacitive touch screen. This technology is embedded in a flash drive which is small and portable and can be used anywhere anytime.

OS supporting the technology

Presently, Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS X and Linux support this technology. So you need to be updated on your operating system before you can have hands on experience on this technology.

Application of the 3D motion controlled technology

The application will find its use in various fields. The motion control will be of great use for Engineers to form 3D models and for Doctors to perform surgery by just hand movements. Further, gestures will be useful for browsing maps, signal digital control, and playing games with easy hand movements. It will be helpful medical field giving surgery a new technological edge. In the field of gaming also it will be helpful as most of the games are virtually controlled. In short the technology will find application in many fields by not just making the work faster but also with a lot of precision.

Price of gesture controlled 3d Motion technology

Top 10 gadgets at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show

project fiona 
1. LG 55-INCH OLED TV [Due: October]
At just 4mm thin, this television almost disappears from side-on. The first 55-inch organic light-emitting diode television revealed at CES offers more than just a skinny form, however, with benefits including brighter colours, better contrast and more energy efficiency. It also has a tiny bezel around the screen and weighs just 7.5kg, making it much easier to mount on a wall. Early customers will have to pay more for this OLED screen than an LCD model, though it will cost less than $10,000 when it launches in Australia late this year.
2. FUJIfILM X-PRO1 [Due: February]
Fujifilm's upcoming professional class camera looks retro but packs in cutting-edge technology. Its built-in optical viewfinder is actually a hybrid electronic model that can display settings over the scene in front of you and automatically adjusts the magnification to suit whichever of the three fixed X-mount lenses are attached: 18mm, 35mm or 60mm. The 16-megapixel camera features a surplus of dials and buttons for quick setting changes, although it doesn't focus as fast as competing compact system cameras.
3. NOKIA LUMIA 900 [Due: 2012]
Nokia's new flagship Windows smartphone offers an expansive screen and speedy 4G mobile downloads. The Lumia 900, celebrated by Microsoft in the company's final CES keynote, looks similar to other recent Nokia releases, except for a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen. It also packs in an 8-megapixel camera, a 1.4GHz processor and 16GB of storage.
4. LENOVO IDEAPAD YOGA 13 [Due: Second half of 2012]
Named Yoga for its ability to flip its screen over, this computer is a laptop-tablet hybrid. It features a dual hinge that lets users fold the screen over entirely or just enough to prop it up on a desk, and a 13.3-inch touch-sensitive screen. The new IdeaPad model will be one of a handful of tablets using Windows 8 when it is released and will do so using a chip as powerful as the Intel Core i7, while storing up to 256GB. The Yoga 13 will be just 1.69cm thick and weigh 1.47kg.

The tablet weighs less than 400g, runs a 1GHz dual-core processor and is due out sometime this year.

What’s the Best Router?

updatedfeaturedimageSelecting the right router and what’s applicable for your network can be difficult. It can depend on your ISP and the type of Broadband (DSL/ADSL, Fiber, Cable or Satellite) connection you have; some can behave differently than others. I hear this all the time and have been often asked the same question - ‘What’s the best router for me’?
I’ve recently purchased and set-up a new D-Link N Router to replace our old Linksys G Router as it was acting up. It took me a little while to buy, as I spent time researching my choice. I use Charter Communications (Internet Service Provider) and I’ve found out that Charter customers have had luck using either Linksys or D-Link routers. I have researched different forums and blogs to find out what other consumers have to say regarding the pros and cons of a variety of routers, you might want to consider doing the same before you buy; reading consumer reviews from reputable vendors are also beneficial. My new D-Link router is performing great and so far so good.
How complex is your wireless network environment? Before you buy anything, you need to find out how many wireless devices do you have. A Wireless device can be anything from a Laptop to an IPod, Tablets, Smart phone, Xbox, PS3, etc. If you’re likely to be doing any HD video streaming, you might consider a Dual Band N Router, this can operate on both the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz radio bands simultaneously, and double the available wireless bandwidth. A router that has this option provides load balancing, for instance you could set up your network to handle video streaming on one radio band, and use the other band for other simultaneous web activities (Instant messaging, Surfing, data uploading/downloading) avoiding any interference or collisions.
Routers have different types of Standards known as Standard 11n (N) that supports 5GHz band and Standard 11b and g (B/G) that supports 5GHz band technology? B/G is an older technology and nowadays N technology would be preferred as it is backwards compatible to B/G and will communicate to any B/G wireless devices. In order to make use of the highest router mode (N), your wireless devices will have to be compatible with N technology as well. However, your older B/G wireless devices will only communicate at the lowest Mode of your router, which is the B/G. The higher the standards used, the better your router will perform.
How large is your home and how many rooms do you have? You may wish to consider using an Access Point (AP), a router with Bridging or Repeating functionality. Make sure to read the technical details of the router to ensure that the router that you will be buying has this option. It’s best to download the PDF file available from the manufacturer’s site to view the specifications. The AP, Bridge or Repeater Router is designed for users looking to create a wireless network or to connect multiple wired devices to an existing wireless network. Expand your wireless network endlessly to cover large areas and improve performance.
Don’t forget the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPV6) compatibility – Most modern routers will have this feature ready so that each IPV6 device in your network will comply with your router when it becomes effective. Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPV4) will be obsolete but not necessarily stop working. Your Network Cards and other technology devices will have to be IPV6 compliant in order for them to connect and work well with your router.
The wireless security feature of the router is also significant and plays a big role in your wireless network. Make sure that it supports WPA2 which is the highest network encryption available, WEP and WPA security have both been hacked and are not reliable security standards.
Other things to consider:
Will you need gigabit ports? Some routers have gigabit ethernet ports for faster transfer rate if you decide to do file sharing in your network. Your wired network devices must have gigabit network adapters to make use of the gigabit ports.
Cloud feature will be great to have – Netgear has a ‘Ready Share Cloud‘ or ReadySHARE(R) USB Storage Access for file sharing. You’re not just getting a wireless router but a Cloud solution as well, all in one great package. You may also make use of the USB Port to share any USB devices from your network.
Parental Control - You may wish to restrict browsing on certain sites for minor ages of the family members.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) - You may transfer, upload, download files by using an internet.
Hotspot - You may setup your network as a Wi-Fi Hotspot, this is most commonly use for Cafe’ restaurants.
Guest Zone - You may create a separate SSID (wireless network name) for your Guests to keep them isolated from your own SSID.
These are just a few great features that you might consider before buying your next router. Now, you decide and find out what’s the best router for you.

The new iPad – is it a worth buy

Much debated, rumored and over hyped with the name of iPad 3 is finally lands in India. Apple dubbed it as The new iPad instead of iPad 3. In this post I’ll be discussing all about the amazing product & other killer features including Retina display.
Retina display:
The new iPad, apple called it as “Resolutionary” device, yes in fact it is. iPad 2 was launched with 1024/768 pixel resolution at 132 ppi if that screen resolution was called wonderful then 2048/1536 pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch certainly fits to wow expression. Apple has doubled screen resolution with the new Retina display will certainly enrich the multimedia experience on the device. It will be hard for an eye to find out an individual pixel at that level of screen resolution.
iSight & Face Time cameras:
The next big change in the new device is, the 5 MP rear camera. It was known fact that original iPad 2 was only able to capture the still image at lower than 1 Mega Pixel resolution and 720p HD video, now with The new iPad you can capture full HD video at 1080p and up to 30 frames per second will be more delightful to watch on. In front camera point of view there is no improvement with that of 2nd generation, it is VGA camera.
The new iPad has A5x dual core processor with quad core graphic engine is the nice upgrade. It will translate into rich high definition gaming experience. Games like Infinity Balde II, Sky Gamblers, Real Racing II and lot of other were already optimized for the new Retina display of iPad will be giving better gaming experience on the device.
Coming to physical dimensions, The new iPad is merely a hair (0.03 mm) thicker and height and width are pretty much in line with iPad 2. If you are looking at ultimate tablet experience this woulb the best tablet available in the stores right now. If you already own iPad 2 and still you are in dilemma about upgrade, the decision lies in your hand.
The New iPad price:
The New iPad – 16 GB + Wi-Fi Only : $499/ 30,500 INR
