A Blu-ray Drive

A Blu-ray Disc for reading and writing

Pioneer electronics market reached with highly qualitative international, who deserve great attention, since it can boast of exclusive technical features and possibilities. Each of their products is a breakthrough in the market, which has a stylish design and excellent quality. Pioneer BDC-2202B 5x Combo Unit Blu-ray/DVD/CD is a cheap and compact (10 x 11.5 x 6 inches) and lightweight device (300 grams). It has a sleek modern design, combining black and gray colors. 

The drive reads most existing discs, including Blu-ray discs, CD-ROM, BD-R, BD-RE, DVD-R / + R (single and double layer), DVD-RW / + RW, DVD-RAM, BD-ROM, BD-R and BD-RE. It seems that Blu-ray is ideal for every situation, and is easy to install, as it requires no additional drivers. In addition to reading the discs, has the ability to record DVDs and CDs. The program includes WinDVD 8 LE (which plays Blu-ray movies), Ulead VideoStudio 11 SE and Ulead Burn.Now SE.

However, customers mention its drawbacks: it can not burn Blu-ray, while you can with DVDs and CDs. Blu-ray burning is very slow and expensive, and some people are content with the existing technical possibilities. Pioneer BDC-2202B 5x Combo Unit needs Blu-ray/DVD/CD serial ATA (SATA), and does not have a SATA cable needed to connect the unit to the motherboard. Does not work with computers southbridge.Consequently SB600, is a tip for customers: before buying this unit, make sure all the hardware requirements demand for this product. The opinions on this Blu-ray vary widely: some people like it, others, however, criticize it. It is your option to buy it or not.

500 GB Optical Discs

500 GB Optical Discs, is it possible?
After passing through Blu-ray and HD DVD out in the market for 500 GB may not seem like much. However, this number is very difficult to achieve by just adding layers and creating new formats. According to research last optical disc is a technology that can cram that much data in a normal DVD disc or Blu-ray HD.

"MicroHole" project is what they call, after this research we will be able to use regular HD DVD and Blu-ray and record much more information about them. They want to make this record not only for stacking films and forget about them. Has been created to secure data storage, long-term storage, as well as long-term data.

Microholographic is a longer version of "MicroHole" and this is the technology used to make the disks. This technology consists of nanostructures inside the disk and work for us as much information on a disc as possible. It is assumed that there is no need for multiple layers, like most people thought.

Moreover, problems with reading scratched discs TDK resolved already so just need to know how to squeeze the amount of data needed in a single disc. Researchers are not satisfied with your unit so far. They will try to make the capacity limit of up to 1 TB. Large hard drives are too expensive to buy when you can use "MicroHole" technology.

Pioneer 400 GB Blu-Ray disk

How big can a Blu-Ray? Pioneer says 400 GB
Blu-ray does a great job for those who love the high quality of the film worldwide. Thanks to H.264 codec we have more data on the same space for video quality and sound are really at a level better than DVD. That's good, but the limit of Blu-Ray or maybe not? Luckily - no, as Pioneer has recently stated. Pioneer developers experience a way to significantly increase the capacity of Blu-Ray optical drive. All this in a short-term perspective, of course, but still we are always willing to take more milestones in a common technology, especially if there are more possibilities to end users.

For Pioneer High disk capacity of future Blu-Ray is a base, a training camp. The starting point is common pick-up head (PUH) of the discs. Again modern materials make a good half of the work. Pioneer High Fidelity Taiwan officially declared a breakthrough in the study of new materials can lead to multi-layer structure of the optical BD, which in turn means more disk space. Expected 16 layers, each with 20 GB of space in which, therefore, the total capacity of 400 GB on a single optical disc that can be read on a Blu-Ray.

All this is very likely to be available in 2010, but only in read-only discs. This information is in Pioneer International roadmap. It also says that recordable discs can be ready in 2012 and a surprise: 1 TB Blu-Ray optical disc in 2013. We'll see.

Lasers HDD

Lasers will increase HDD speed 100 times
Today is the era of optical data. Floppy disks and other magnetic media are expelled by the USB flash drives, CDs, DVD and even Blu Ray. But there is a part of your team always remains magnetic. Is your hard drive. There are many advantages in its magnetic origin, ie, magnetic disk drives are much cheaper than flash memory-based. However, there is a huge flaw - speed. Access time of flash memory is much shorter than usual in hard disk drives. However, modern technology made a big step in solving this problem.

Scientists at the University of Nijmegen Radbout really did a wonderful invention. Usually, you need a magnet to change the magnetic polarity of a metal. This is how modern hard disks work. However, scientists thought of a way to change the polarity of the laser pulses. Each laser pulse causes a layer of information on the disk surface to change its value from 0 to 1 and vice versa.

The present invention increased the speed of the hard drive a few hundred times! But there is one limitation - the recording density is much lower than the standard magnetic method. This is because the area that is affected by laser, is about 5 um big. In the next 3-4 years, scientists hope to reach the 10 nm beam, these laser-based hard drives can really compete with the magnetic.

Information technology to improve every day. And the things you once thought impossible are now a reality. Lasers have played an important role in the advancement of portable technology. From the hard disk scanning to laser printers, its intrinsic value is clear. Laptops, even refurbished can be modified to include this technology.

Blu-ray Burner

First Look: First Blu-ray is awesome

Blu-ray Disc is one of the two competing formats struggling to replace conventional DVDs. The format is based on blue laser technology, offering several times the storage capacity of current DVDs. Blu-ray stores 25 GB on a single layer disc and uses a new disc structure that puts the recording layer much closer to the laser. The format of the competition, but incompatible - HD-DVD - stores a little less: 15 GB of data in a single layer disc. HD-DVD disc has a structure similar to that of DVD. No HD-DVD burners have been announced.

Speed ​​Tests - on target 

We tested a production-level BDR-101A unit with shrink wrap TDK BD-R Electronics, and near, but not quite-final software from Sonic. Installing the drive was standard fare for an IDE drive: It looks and feels like an ordinary optical drive, and it was very easy to install in our test system.

In our tests, this unit an impressive performance, close to its expected performance. It took 44 minutes, 45 seconds to master 22GB of data to BD-R using the bundled Sonic DigitalMedia SE software. This results in a yield of 67 Mbps, compared to the theoretical maximum of 72 Mbps for 2X BD-R (where 1X BD = 36 mbps). It takes a little longer to copy the same disc back to the hard drive. The promise of large capacity on a single disc is attractive not only for storing video and multimedia, but also to simplify data backup. That is slightly longer than it can be burned to five single-layer DVD-R, but a little less than it takes to burn the same capacity, double layer DVD + R - without swapping discs .

For example, the Plextor PX-760A, the fastest DVD burner we've tested in our laboratory, it takes 5 minutes and 50 seconds to transfer a 4.35GB single layer 18X DVD + R. 10X Dual Layer burns, Plextor required 14 minutes, 34 seconds to write 7.9GB to a disk.Not surprisingly, however, if speed is your goal, a hard drive remains a faster bet. We have copied the same 22GB of data on a disk Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo external hard (a 1 terabyte drive configured with RAID 0). It took 17 minutes, 20 seconds to copy the data on the hard disk.

Blu-Ray Specs unit: Alphabet Soup
Chief among the supported formats for the BDR-101A is a single-layer 25GB BD-R, the variant of write-once Blu-ray Disc and 25GB BD-RE, the nomenclature of BD rewritable discs. The Pioneer drive is rated to read BD-R, BD-RE and BD-ROM (the commercial print media) at 2X - the same speed as the support for writing to BD-R and BD-RE. The BDR-101A is also capable of writing with a single layer DVD ± R at 8X, dual layer DVD-R at 2X, dual-layer DVD + R 2.4 X, and 4X DVD ± RW. Reading speeds are 8X for DVD-ROM and DVD ± R, 6X for DVD ± R DL and DVD ± RW. These rates of speed-writing are lower than what you expect in a dedicated DVD recorder.

In addition, the unit has 8 MB buffer for writing BD and 2 MB buffer for recording DVD.

Software Strikes
As he did with his first DVD authoring solutions, Pioneer says that this unit is aimed at the professional market - a strategic maneuver that explains the relative paucity of software included with the unit. Usually, this hearing has already been high-end authoring software, either for the development of content of films or games. The drive ships with Sonic DigitalMedia SE software for copying discs and write data, however, does not include components for creating records or packet writing. According to Pioneer, customers will be able to update - in a yet-to-be-determined discount - a version with more features DigitalMedia software (which would include disc authoring and packet writing) when available. (At this point, none of the major software vendors are shipping BD-RE packet writing software, but the whole plan to do so.)

Although you can not find Blu-ray Disc still play Pioneer unit when available. As with other Blu-ray (and, indeed, the HD-DVD) devices coming out now, this unit is compatible with the specifications of provisional copy protection AACS (Advanced Access Content System). This means that the unit will not handle future developments as AACS content management system, a highly anticipated addition to the specification that is still being hashed out by the studios and technology companies in question.

However, Blu-ray Disc is ready for professionals who need a unit in which the author and the BD test, and for early adopters who can not wait to get their hands on the latest storage technology. Pioneer BDR-101A burner is only a first salvo in what promises to be a new wave of units: It has some limitations, but the unit also features high-capacity removable storage that users are clamoring for.

Intel Centrino 2

Intel Centrino 2 announced
Intel is the world's largest CPU, which is why every new technology that influences the market make up the whole team. Today is a good news for laptop users. Many of us know about Intel's Centrino technology, which saves energy and gives us better performance with less power. Intel has officially announced an upgrade to Centrino line - Centrino 2. It will be even more advanced, the promises of performance Core 2 Duo WiFi-N and WiMax wireless capacity and faster speeds. Let's see more precisely what gives us this update Centrino.

The Centrino 2 specs are very promising. It features an enhanced version of Intel graphics processor, Intel CPU with chipset and graphics Integated. Includes WiFi-N (the fastest) adapter with optional WiMAX wireless networking adapter and Gigabit Ethernet (vPro model only). It will also support HDMI, Blu-Ray, DisplayPort and CrossFire dual GPU for laptops. However, no mention of what kind of GPU, NVIDIA or XTi is compatible. The Wi-Fi will come through a 300Mbps Intel Wi-Fi Link 5150 or Intel 450 Mbps Wi-Fi Link 5350.

This new technology will affect especially laptop users, since it is aimed at more power characteristics of management. With Intel Centrino 2 inside the specifications of the promise of the chance to see a full-length Blu-ray without an AC adapter. This was possible thanks to hundreds of power management improvements, such as low power CPU, DDR3 RAM and many more features, reducing the energy requirements of laptops by 25%.

Of course, some time must pass before we first see "Intel Centrino 2 inside", laptops, and the price will vary, however, the prices of the new processors are already known: 209 USD Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2.26 GHz, 3 MB of cache, 25W TDP to an Intel Core 2 Extreme X9100 3.06 GHz Cache, 6MB, 44W TDP.

Samsung Blu-ray Player Netflix

Samsung upgrades Blu-Ray players to Netflix Support

More old television entertainment possibilities has recently been opened to Samsung Blu-Ray players owners. The novelty refers to the Netflix online service DVD rental. Interent TV broadcasting services are or of extreme demand, especially in the U.S., Netflix has been found and grew to its current size. As LG has offered BD300 Blu-ray player for a while now right for working with Netflix, Samsung had to give her playing in it. So now they did. From now on steam will be accepted Netflix Samsung Blu-Ray.

Netflix and Samsung Partnership, from the user point of view, has been poured into a new firmware update ready for the owners of two Samsung Blu-Ray player models. These are BD-P2500 and BD-2550 models. This case is not very normal to happen when one develops the known world to update their products for compatibility with other. Thus any owner or BD-P2500 BD-2550 is able to download the previous firmware name and enjoy the steamed Internet TV instantly.

Only one thing to mention here. Your Samsung Blu-Ray player will have to be connected to the Internet in one way or another. This happens to be the only difficulty. The easiest solution is to synchronize the device with a PC. Once done, you can review movies in HD quality tail, rewind and fast forward to put in, browse at all, etc, all via remote control.

The cost of the new Samsung BD-P2500 or BD-2550 Blu-Ray firmware updated assumptions is 400 USD. Just enough for this type of product. Besides an Internet gadget Blu-Ray on television, the players are a testament to globalization, including in the field of high technology, which turns out to be good after all.

New Sony Walkman Oled Touchscreen

Newcomer among the OLED gadgets - Sony Walkman Touchscreen 3 "OLED

Good news, OLED technology is beating LCD screens, as more and more electronic gadgets with OLED screens on the market flow. And not necessarily see the televisions. Of course, we all remember the first panel of agencies out there - Sony XEL-1 OLED HDTV, but there are many OLED gadgets such as mobile phones, laptops and clearly portable media players. There Cowon S9 Curve - an impressive media player with AMOLED touch screen and now seems to have beaten a rival. Sony Walkman will be the next to launch an OLED touch screen. No unfortuatly in the near future, but it's good to know what is this type of concept.

Although the Sony Walkman is not on the stage of pre-production model and there are plans only web design, we can name some of the characteristics of the media player. First, Walkman have a touch screen to drag and drop, three-inch WQVGA OLED screen. Here are some of the advantages of this technology: low power consumption, unmatched response time, high brightness, vivid colors, bright and contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1. Just below the screen, the new Walkman is from 16 GB to 32 GB, FM radio tuner and S-Master digital amplifier with digital noise cancellation and a speakerphone in a sidebar somewhere.

When you come to make the new Sony Walkman on, they look like previous models, at least a little, however, will be one of the most progressive media players. The audio files of MP3, WMA, AAC and PCM codec will certainly support and fingers crossed for FLAC and other lossless formats as well. Video playback Walkman consists of MPEG-4, WMV and H.264 (AVC) codec, which stands for Blu-Ray. With the support of the Wi-Fi, Sony Walkman is about to take a lot of functionality over the Internet, such as watching the reels on YouTube, purchasing content from Amazon, YouTube video feed subscriptions and audio podcasts. Walkman browser features are still unknown, but surely we'll know more when it comes time to filing in '09.

Asus M70

ASUS M70 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 1GB video memory
Vying for superiority in the desktop arena full replacement is the new Asus M70 - the world's first notebook to come with a 1 TB data storage option. Yes, that's a terabyte, which in 1000 GB - the equivalent of about 220 DVDs. It also uses other very interesting - a 'Penryn' Core 2 Duo Edition, 4GB of RAM, and a new ATI HD3650 graphics. The Asus M70 will be available from Anvik Micro £ 1,599 by the end of April. It seems that the sky semi-portable computer, but how do you fare against the competition?


The M70 is a desktop replacement to the core. In other words, it's big, heavy and if used on people in the audience laugh at you. That does not mean it is unattractive - far from it - the glossy finish on the top works well with light gray on the wrist rest, while aluminum edge around the keyboard adds a very contemporary. Asus decided to use white LED status lights and power button is good - it really matches the rest of the laptop. Not as pretty as, for example, the HP Pavilion HDX9000, but I will not.

Being a portable media center, it is no surprise to find shortcut buttons for common tasks. These switches, located on the keyboard adds a touch of access to the media player software and enable you to navigate through five video preset modes that change the appearance of the screen. These have been optimized for games, movies, images, normal desktop use and a special mode that lets you use smooth the laptop in a dark room without blinding yourself.

The size of the M70 have the luxury of a full-sized keyboard with separate numeric keypad - handy for spreadsheet users. It has a trackpad mouse, obviously, but this is special: it doubles as a means of manipulating the media playback. It is decorated with icons indicating the most common tasks such as pausing playback, rewind and volume, and two programmable "buttons" that allow you to launch an application of your choice with a single touch. Switch between normal mouse and the quick start mode can be done by pressing the "mode" button on the top right of the trackpad, curiously.

There is more media-friendly can be seen throughout the rest of the laptop. The left side is home to an HD DVD-ROM. We have no idea why - maybe Asus had a load left over from when the format was still alive and wants to get rid of them on the cheap. (Note: See update below.)

The back is D-Sub and HDMI video, which can connect the laptop to a compatible TV or projector. You also get an AV dongle that provides composite video output. The sound is covered by a set of five speakers - two just above the keyboard, two on the front edge and a subwoofer underneath.

We are very excited by the prospect of 1 TB of storage in a laptop, so let's talk about that aspect first. Nobody has managed to create a portable unit that only has 1 TB of data, but the M70 gets around this problem by incorporating two 500 GB drives from Hitachi. These run at 5,400 rpm, has a latency of 12 ms 5. 5ms average and average reading time, so we are not as fast as some desktop drives 3.5 inch, but still mightily impressive in a laptop. As expected, the units can be configured in RAID 1 or RAID 0, but you have to set yourself free ships as RAID.

The M70 is a statement outside storage areas, too. It uses the new Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 CPU, clocked at 2.5GHz. This is part of the series 'Penryn' the new Intel processors, which are intended to replace the previous range of Core 2 Duo, codenamed 'Santa Rosa'.

Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii

Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Nintendo Wii, which is better
Here are three top consoles nowadays that you can choose. Sony PlayStation 3 next generation console that continues a glorious path of PlayStation and PlayStation 2. Xbox 360: Microsoft's next console is created in the continuation of the Xbox. Finally, the cheapest Nintendo Wii and showing the lowest performance. So let's review and compare the various parameters, so you can decide what is best for you.


Xbox 360 is in second place for hardware parameters. First there are two models that can be purchased. One is a regular white Xbox 360 controllers with no hard drive cable. The updated model has wireless controllers and a hard disk drive 20 GB to store photos, videos and audio files. It also has an optical drive DVD that allows the console to display high definition video. The last thing you should be notified that Microsoft will update its Xbox 360 free of charge to support GD full 1080p video output.

Sony PlayStation 3 is, first judging by hardware. It has Blue-ray is not available in Basic or Premium Xbox 360 (you can buy for $ 200 which makes the cost of Xbox 360 as PS3.) Moreover, the hard drive is 20 GB in the basic model and 60 GB hard coming in the update model. In addition to the premium version of PS3 has WiFi built in.

Nintendo is the cheapest is the worst of integrated hardware while showing the lowest productivity between Xbox 360 and PS3. It has a DVD drive but there is no ability to play DVD movies on it. However, it has built in Wi-Fi to surf the web.


Xbox 360 and PS3 are in some way, even in this classification because the number and quality of the games that are out there in the market are pretty even. PlayStation 3 is supposed to be the best in graphics but still no games that show the full potential of this console.

Xbox 360 will run most games that have been created for the Xbox, but not all. Moreover PlayStation 3 will run all PS and PS2 games. However, these possibilities only in North America and Japan, the PS3 versions, but not the European version.

Compatible with all Nintendo games created for earlier versions of consoles: GameCube, NES, SNES and Nintendo 64. However, the graphics quality of games is not as good as it is on Xbox 360 and PS3 games.


First I would like to say that Nintendo does not support movie playback or storage large, so will this console of this part of the comparison. Although you can view photos, MPEG and QuickTime, MP3 music files on this console, and all SD storage only. The real battle comes between the two Mega consoles: Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 here. PS3 fist was the only console that supports 1080p full HD, but now Microsoft is going to update all Xbox 360 consoles in the same HD. As evens out.

Blu-ray offers an advantage for Sony PlayStation 3 to store movies and archives around the disc, as they can store much more information and a better game that fits into a larger disk. HD Media Center Extender for Xbox 360 PS3 exceeds what they can offer. You can display HDTV, live and recorded on the network, plus you can download movies and TV shows from the web. The other thing that gives an advantage of Xbox 360 is a compact, Apple iPod and Sony PSP. It is the only console that supports streaming video and audio from the PC.

Audio Support: PS3 has a Dolby Surround 5.1, which is not bad until you hear that Xbox 360 has a multichannel system that supports up to 256 discrete channels. Wii on the other hand is compatible with Dolby Pro-Logic II.

Pantech vega and 5 tablet

Pantech Vega N˚5 Dual Core Tablet at 1.5 GHz Released
Pantech Vega N ˚ 5 Tablet Dual Core 1.5 GHz Launch - The Korean company Pantech announced the launch of sales in the domestic market a new tablet Pantech Vega N ˚ 5 (also known as IM-T100K). Therefore, in the form of the call the device, which was held on May 26 before the start of sales, the founders of Pantech Vega N ˚ 5 took about six weeks.

The configuration of the tablet during this time has not changed, the device is equipped with touch screen 5-inch diagonal 800 x 480 pixels, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB internal flash memory and / 802.11b Wi-Fi adapter / gn, and even HSPA +. Two important features of the tablet, which clearly distinguish it from the rest is the main camera has a resolution of 8 megapixels and can record video at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and Qualcomm MSM8660 platform, which includes a Dual-core 1.5 GHz

Pantech Vega N ˚ 5 It should be noted that even reputable companies are still far from being able to equip their devices with a production platform and a camera with a sensor of this resolution, and here we are talking about is not the best of the Korean brand. New available in Korea at a price of 550 euros, which is quite tolerable, taking into account the specifications of the product. As for the Android operating system version, running Pantech Vega N ˚ 5 is characterized by the number 2.3.3. Go to their official website to learn more about this Pantech Vega N ˚ 5.

HTC Sensation

The emergence of the feeling of HTC is an important event in the world of smartphones running Android. Not because the Taiwanese company showed its flagship later Korean rivals Samsung and LG represented, but because of the feeling at the moment is the most technologically advanced smart phone based on Android. At least if you look at things like processor speed, amount of RAM, screen resolution and others. The banner ad in the spring may be interpreted in different ways. However, HTC Incredible S had to be known for a while before feeling HTC advertised. And maybe the HTC just out of 3.0 IU sense?

No matter, because it brings feelings of a year ago, when HTC has pioneered the market for Android smartphones and true leaders in their class. That feeling is now the best HTC Android smartphone in the world, I think we can excuse for the delay for that.

Design, materials, case

Design HTC feeling is somewhat unusual, I think. This battery cover bite is a controversial decision, I did not like since the days of cheap WP7 smartphone - HTC Mozart. But this is my subjective impression if you own what your opinion is certainly the opposite. On the other hand, the design feel of HTC is definitely cool and classic. The device looks simple and unassuming despite the mixture of plastic and metal at the top of the battery. It has a universal design: "gray" on the one hand and futuristic at the other, it looks great, except the back cover. You can love your design or you can leave it irrelevant, but certainly not hate him.

The materials used are almost exclusively of metal, except for two plastic inserts on the back cover and Gorilla Glass on the screen. The way the surface of the screen is unusual. It is slightly bent inwards, imagining a large screen surface with edges slightly tilted upward. In this way, HTC tried to save the screen from scratches when you put the phone screen on the table.

Dimensions and construction quality

The smartphone is relatively thin, but can not compete with Sony Ericsson Arch thick, and is heavier than the Samsung Galaxy 2. HTC feeling dimensions are: 126.1 x 65.4 x 11.3 mm. In my opinion significant weight to the phone only an advantage, you feel a good device in their hands not only a plastic toy. The build quality is good for a smartphone and the point here is not exactly, but also the construction of the body. The front (screen and all the "guts") are inserted into the box, which is represented by the battery cover. The whole design is very solid.


Feeling HTC uses the same sensor unit below the screen as in all other new smartphones. It is convenient for the press as they are well spaced and backlit. Power button is at the top about a 3.5 mm jack for headphones. Volume control buttons are on the left edge. No camera button, the camera is activated from the menu. MicroUSB connector is located on the left side of the device. No HDMI output so if you want to use HTC feeling to watch videos on your HDTV you will have to buy a special cable.


This gadget has a 4.3 "capacitive touch screen is also S-LCD, .. Like the other new models HTC Feeling company is one of the few devices with Android has QHD resolution 960x540 pixels which makes 16 : 09 aspect ratio. Here are some other smartphones with the same resolution, Motorola and HTC models for the U.S. market, however, Apple iPhone Meizu M9 4 and both have a screen resolution of 960x640 pixels. The screen quality is very good if not better. I'm a fan of the classic TFT display for The feeling is the best there is in terms of showing in my opinion. But we understand that your screen is normal there is no brightness or color super crazy as AMOLED screens. The screen has excellent viewing angles and good brightness.


Feeling HTC has a modulus of 8-megapixel camera and two flash LED. Based on the growing power of the device, compared to previous models, the company has added support for videos in FullHD (1080p, 1920x1080 pixels), as well as simple photo editors and video.

Interface and platform

The smartphone runs on Android 2.3 with the latest version of HTC Sense has just appeared on their devices. Let's review briefly some of the most remarkable things about the new direction. Locking the new screen. Now instead of dragging a bow down to unlock the screen, you need to pull a ring from the bottom center of the screen. There are also four customizable icons (you choose what to put there), for example, address book, call log, email and message. If you pull the icon in the center ring that opens and automatically starts the application that you have chosen.

Virtual desktops are now spinning like a carousel in three dimensions and looks stunning, but has no practical use. There is also a new HTC Task Manager, as well as Wi-Fi printing feature. Technology was implemented well known in Swype basic keyboard and HTC called Trace. There is also a new weather widget, clicking on the time it opens a window to full screen effects. It also removes the restriction on the number of windows open simultaneously in the database browser is especially good news for me.


The device is built on a platform of Qualcomm MSM 8260, this new platform from Qualcomm has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. However, it is difficult to say if the feeling HTC is better in performance than NVIDIA Tegra-based devices 2, we have to wait for the final samples and stable firmware. The smartphone has 768 MB of RAM and 1 GB of storage. Besides feeling has a microSD card slot. It also has all the wireless connectivity standard for modern Android smartphone: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.


The new smartphone is made by the principle of "faster, higher, stronger" HTC preferred approach for many years and in 2010 the accents were a bit skewed towards services and the expansion of the range. However, the feeling returns these principles and I am personally very happy. New platform with dual-core processor, the new high-resolution screen, the new version of HTC Sense and support higher resolution video recording at all feeling fit in HTC.

The Company is not flirting with separate areas of the device, but simply increases the overall bar Android smartphones. Of course, we all realize that the time the champions of today is very short, a couple of months is the time that any high-end smartphone goes on the top step. But the feeling HTC does not become less attractive and interesting. If you're wondering what Android smartphone will be one of the most technologically advanced this summer one of the options is the feeling of HTC. The hands on the next video.

Samsung Hercules Android Smartphone

Android Smartphone Samsung Hercules to bring HSPA + 42 to T-Mobile on September 21?

T-Mobile is providing more than 170 million Americans with HSPA + 42 speeds, but have yet to launch a smartphone that makes the most of their 4G network with lightning speed. It seems that T-Mobile is launching several phones 42 Mbps this year, but we are most excited about is the rumored Samsung Hercules.Several sites have speculated that the Hercules could launch in late September and now TmoNews has leaked a roadmap T-Mobile says that a new smartphone coming September 21. Could this be the mythical date of Samsung hits stores the device?

There are many reasons for the Hercules promoted by Samsung. According to Chris Ziegler Thisismynext, rumored specifications of the device include:
  • 4.5-inch 480 x 800 Super Plus AMOLED display
  •  Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  •  Support for the National Conference, but the compatibility with the ISIS standard next pay phone "to be determined"
  •  Category 24 HSDPA (42Mbps) and HSUPA Category 6 (5.76Mbps) extremely quick to support HSPA + - faster than any other phone HSPA + is currently sold in the U.S.
  •  AWS, plus 850 / 1900MHz support compatibility for AT & T "4G" network if the merger is successful
  • Preliminary measurements put it at 5.16 x 2.76 x 0.37 inches - within a few hundredths of an inch of Infuse
  • Internal ROM 16 GB, 1 GB of internal RAM, external microSD up to 32GB
  •  This is where it exceeds the Infuse: Qualcomm is quoted with 1.2 GHz dual-core processor APQ8060 
  • applications, which is extremely rare for a Samsung - especially given the availability of Samsung's own multi-core Exynos line is paired with a modem processor MDM8220
  •  8-megapixel camera with flash and video capture principal 1080p, secondary front camera
  •  Like the Galaxy S II, Hercules will have no dedicated HDMI port - it will pass high-definition video over USB Micro MHL 
Basically, the Hercules looks like a close relative of the Galaxy S II (SGS2), but has a slightly larger screen and includes a Qualcomm processor Exynos instead of Samsung's own. SGS2 We know that coming soon to the U.S., but it remains a mystery should be available in all telephone companies.Rumors Hercules specifications first published in May, what might have been modified since then. 

Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon already opened in several devices (such as feeling HTC) clocked at 1.2 GHz, but faster 1.5 GHz version will be available by late summer.The T-Mobile 4G Sensation and slides HTC myTouch 4G Android smartphones are excellent for those looking to upgrade now, but if you have the need for speed 42 Mbps then I suggest holding a couple of months.

Playstation Phone Sonyericsson

PlayStation phone to leave in 2010 
PlayStation Phone Rumors are getting stronger, with the appearance of the image. Sony Ericsson comes with a model somewhere between the PSP and the Samsung Captivate GO. It seems that the dive is coming out soon, and much is expected. Customers should be able to download games from Sony and enjoy games market very similar to the PSP.

As for the photo device has a 1 GHz Qualcomm gives enough computing power to support Android 3.0 (gingerbread), along with 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of ROM. A device as it should have a decent screen as we see here is from 3.8 to 4.2 inches.

It has microSD slot instead of having a QWERTY keyboard controls PlayStation has a D-pad and a touchpad in the center of large analog controls. This would be the best phone for hard core gamers that love PlayStation.

Apple iPhone 4 vs. HTC EVO 4G

Apple iPhone and HTC EVO 4G 4 are by far the two most exciting smartphone money can buy to date. And in many respects are very similar: both have large full size, touch screen phone, smart management software, a lot of free or inexpensive applications, high-resolution photography and video recording capabilities, video calling, etc. I guess for a consumer who is not technically sophisticated will be a total guess if 4 or EVO 4G iPhone will work best for him or her. But yet somehow Apple and HTC have managed to design two completely different smartphones despite playing in the same field by the same rules. So I decided to try and see the two as if there were criteria such as price, the carrier data plan, or quality problems 4 and iPhone users have already experienced EVO 4G.


First, the EVO. It's been a little longer than the iPhone and a mobile phone for the first time to support the 4G network. In plain English that means your Internet connection will be faster than Wi-Fi access - exactly what iPhone owners will be jealous considering 4 video calls (iPhone 4 FaceTime only be done as it is called, Wi -Fi). On the hardware 4G respect EVO wing up with the latest technology (see spec list below). One of the few things you may not be fully satisfied with the display. Yes, its 4.3-inch is great, but it's a standard LCD technology, which in comparison with AMOLED or high pixel density of retinal opposition not work as well. Personally, I like the way I EVO 4G in the back of it. iPhone 4 is flat full round witch most people like better - it feels better in your pocket and hand as well. However, half the reason to buy EVO 4G Android. At the time of writing that is included in Android 2.1, but the 2.2 update Froy is cooking right now. And that's very important for the EVO 4G. I hope this kind of smart phones to offer some of the best Internet experience on the market. What does. Android says the best mobile browser, while the greatest improvement with Froyo quadruples the performance of Flash. Note that Safari does not support Flash at all. Android is more true multitasking, but will his plan to the battery faster. Considering all things including the audience has actually bought HTC EVO 4G recommend it to someone who collects and enjoys the sweet spot of the latest technology and a very capable operating system. If you are not among them, but like the HTC EVO 4G, do not worry - still fits.

HTC EVO 4G specifications:
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon @ 1GHz
  • RAM: 512 MB
  • Operating System: Android 2.1 (2.2 upgrade this year)

  • Cellular network 4G
  • Size: 4.8 x 2.6 x 0.5
  • Weight: 6 oz
Apple iPhone 4

This, in my opinion, is the most charismatic smartphone if you accept this type of description of a device. It certainly has the X factor that makes it out of your pocket only to have others see it. EVO 4G will not be able to do that anytime, anywhere. Faced with technology enthusiasts - yes, of course, but that's pretty much about. Another unique feature of all iPhones so far is that somehow remain modern and updated throughout its life until the time the new generation model is presented. I refer to this time last year we could not wait to get HTC Hero. However, after that I did not stay long in our hearts. iPhone 3G S on the other hand held his position until June. Even now I can say the same thing happen with the iPhone 4 - everything that comes out next year or so was against it. If this affect your choice? - Yes, at least to some degree. Receiving such treatment for a reason. IOS 4 and the hardware that runs it are no less capable than the Apple App Store EVO offers more applications, but unfortunately iPhone 4 also has a problem or two. As I said above Safari is not compatible with Flash and the operating system itself does not have complete multitasking meat, but it runs a range of services in place. However, running background services instead of processes greatly improves the battery life while maintaining the ease of use basically the same level. It's a small price to pay for some of the features you get with the iPhone 4 that others can not match. One is, of course, screen Retina. The enlargement of the pixel density is really a way forward for all upcoming devices, because physically they can not get much bigger, while the screen resolution has to grow. However, if for some reason did not like HTC EVO 4G is almost certain that as the iPhone 4, but not necessarily works in reverse.

  • Processor: Apple A4
