Posted by on Apr 10, 2013 in Debates | 0 comments

Facebook has announced the launching of the Facebook Phone – HTC First. This is a very interesting piece of  information of the evening’s event … especially that it has announced Facebook Home, an interface for Android. Potential danger to Google. Actually,  Facebook has become a necessary editor on Google Play (Android) and App Store (iOS). It even paid a lot to be the first in the rankings on Google Play with Facebook and Facebook Messenger. As a social network, Facebook has surpassed one billion subscribers for a higher value of a hundred billion. In short, it is one with Apple, Google and Amazon Big Four Internet. Things are not going so well for Facebook. The giant has fallen far behind in the mobile and the company was forced to pay $ 1 billion to acquire Instagram. They recently abandoned the...

Yesterday, we could actually confirm the existence of Google Babel, only it seems that today new screenshots are more or less confirmed the upcoming release of the service (at least for the web version). During the night, it seems that “real screenshots” of Google Babel on the web version have leaked. When we look more closely at these screenshots, we can see the integration of many known features of Google’s services, such as Google Hangouts which apparently implemented directly in the chat window, inviting other contacts to the conversation and the opportunity to enjoy a variety of emoticons and service settings. Of course, I remind that this information is only valid for the web version. Speaking about a crowd of emoticons, here are others that you can look at: Also in regard to the web version, the settings are...

This One Could Be The Supposed iPhone 5S?!

Posted by on Apr 6, 2013 in Rumors | 0 comments

Here are some pictures of the alleged prototype of the next Apple iPhone 5S. Though they do not seem to be of good quality, still they do reveal a lot about this pictured iPhone; we cannot see the actual screen underneath, however,  the iPhone sheds off the iconic home button and replaces it with a real edge-to-edge display. Then there’s the design – it’s sloped toward the edges, which coincides with a patent application from the Cupertino Company. Note that this kind of design isn’t typical of Apple. The company tends to favor more squarish designs, which allow it to make full use of the space within the smartphone’s chassis and create more compact devices. The thing here is that what you are seeing could be a prototype on which Apple is working. All major manufacturers consider and test a...

Comparison Of IPhone Ownership Cost On AT&T, Verizon, Sprint And T-Mobile

Posted by on Apr 5, 2013 in Debates | 0 comments

It is possible now to draw a comparison of the total cost of ownership throughout the nation’s four largest wireless carriers: AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. A lot of outlets ran their spreadsheets to assess the current landscape, including Zagg, best known for its line of protective coverings for consumer electronics. Zagg confirmed that T-Mobile’s contract-free iPhone 5 is cheaper and it is only for $580 over two years. However, the difference changes once you switch your significant or an entire family of four to the nation’s fourth-largest carrier. His math assumes T-Mobile’s unlimited data tier (the carrier offers three tiers of data: 500MB, 2GB and unlimited). Sprint by default offers only unlimited option and claims not to throttle data. Verizon and AT&T no longer have unlimited data so Zagg used the current price for their respective Share Everything and...

Posted by on Apr 3, 2013 in Rumors | 0 comments

At the end of the last week, we speculated the possibility of the upcoming release of a Facebook Phone and it would seem that this is the case with the mysterious HTC First (HTC Myst)! Anyway, it is worth noting that it is not every day that the social network Facebook highlights “Android” on these invitations cards. Unlike the HTC Chacha, which features a touchscreen and a physical keyboard, the HTC First takes the form of a smartphone with a touchscreen design all pretty close to the spirit of “HTC”. According to rumors circulating on the web, the HTC First would have a 4.3-inch touch-screen HD (720 x 1280 pixels), a dual-core Snapdragon 1.5 GHz, 1 GB RAM (RAM), 16 GB of internal memory (ROM), a 1.6 megapixel front camera and a 5 megapixel camera.

If Samsung Made An iWatch…

Posted by on Apr 1, 2013 in Debates | 0 comments

It would look something like this. The South Korean chaebol is obviously working on its own smart watch and so, if a set of leaked screenshots is anything to go by, then, it will have a 500-by-500 pixel resolution display. Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile business, said that his company has been preparing the watch product for so long. He also confirmed that the watch is one of the products Samsung is actually getting prepared for the future. It is reported that Google is working on a smart watch project as well. It’s apparently being developed by the Internet giant’s Android unit and should act as an extension to the smartphones using that operating system. It is reported that LG is taking part in the smart watch craze, and that Microsoft is monitoring how the smart watch space evolves over time....
