Samsung Galaxy (SII, SIII, Note): a big security risk …

XDA forum member has put his finger on a big security of a large portion of the range smartphones Samsung Galaxy. These are all devices with Exynos architecture that would be affected. Did you know that a new method allowed to “root” the Samsung Galaxy without having to use the software ODIN? In fact, the /dev/exynos-mem in kernel allows anyone to read and write to the memory sockets phone. The good news is that this flaw allows “rooter” easily his camera. The bad … this vulnerability provides access to your data. This directory is used for both “graphics” as the camera for example. Affected devices? Many devices with an architecture Exynos (Exynos 4210 and 4412), as the Samsung Galaxy S III, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab II, etc.. A solution? Not really, it is possible to modify the rights of the famous directory permissions, but we do not know the consequences of this method of operation of the system and applications. Samsung has not yet reported on this discovery, however, the Korean firm will have to react very quickly....

Galaxy Note 3, the rumor is bigger than his shadow!

Galaxy Note 3, the rumor is bigger than his shadow!

The last big rumor date refers to the Galaxy Note III (3). Barely out in the world, now the Korea Times already evokes the future successor of Galaxy Tab 2, Galaxy Note’s third name. According to them, the Korean manufacturer Samsung has already selected a screen size that is 6.3 inches (0.8 inches above the Note 2), the technology is OLED and Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). From a certain point of view, it is certain that Samsung will go into overdrive for the next model to be aligned to compete with a screen resolution of Full HD. However, I have myself a little harder to swallow the idea of ​​a screen size of 6.3 inches as impressive. In thinking about it, would you imagine to have in your pocket a terminal of a variable to a halfway Galaxy Note 2 and a Nexus 7? At present, it is still too early to confirm any concrete architecture will have the Galaxy Note 3 (including the same time the Galaxy S4), but we can already speculate on an integration of Exynos 5250 based SOC on a ARM Cortex-A15. As a reminder, this dual-core architecture engraved in 32 nm is already present in the Samsung Nexus 10. So why not in Note 3 and S4? In all cases, it is clearly too early to give rein to such allegations on this screen size that appear to some as a joke. After that, it is not impossible that Samsung is moving towards a Borderless device to increase the maximum size of the screen and close the gap with the edges of the...

The dual-screen Phone YotaPhone to watch, this is the video :

Last Thursday, we had the YotaPhone Edouard, the terminal of Russian design, running Android and with the particularity of having two screens, one on each side of the smartphone. Being the first HD LCD technology and the other e-ink. It will not take long to verify that the YotaPhone is perhaps not an obscure concept that will never see the day: Anton Tarasenko, Head of Software Development at Yota Device rushed to make a video where it performs a demonstration of the main features of YotaPhone on what appears to be a prototype condition. First we learn that the name “YotaPhone” is perhaps not definitive, and the phone will be well up to 2GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. We also note that it will be without the menu bar, and orders “Back” and “Home” will be implemented via a gesture recognition on the lower bezel of the phone! Anton Tarasenko spends the rest of the video presentation of different situations in which the presence of a dual display proves to be useful and relevant. It also presents the action that toggles a display from the LCD to the destination e-ink screen. Finally, Yota announced the availability for April 2013 API allows third party developers to implement the use of the dual screens in their applications. Personally, the fact that I find most impressive is the ability to enjoy viewing the e-ink screen, even when the phone battery is completely discharged! Here is a nice application of this technology to screen thought to be exclusively for reading lights. We look forward to more on this phone or the next CES2013 MWC2013....

TomTom for Android : more compatibility!

TomTom unveiled its application last October, it was unfortunately compatible with very few smartphones. This is obviously what we had slowed during his test … Tomtom for Android has fortunately received a major update. The publisher has revised its copy. TomTom app is now compatible with a large part of the last Android devices: HTC One S and X, Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 2, Galaxy Nexus, Motorola RAZR HD, Nexus 4, etc.. As a reminder, TomTom is a mapping application with voice guidance turn. You can find several “packages” with different plans. The greatest asset in relation to applications such as Google Maps Navigation is the offline storage cards that you can use the application without login. Not to mention, IQ Routes and HD Traffic, which allow you to be aware of the various problems on the road and to know your exact arrival time. For using the application several times, I find it unfortunate that the Android integration does not go further: each navigation request, the Android system only offers me to use Maps. If you use any mapping...

The Galaxy S III Premium Suite, video :

The Galaxy S III just keeps getting better doesn’t it.  The latest update that Canadians got brought the device into the Jelly Bean era.  It brought some great features like Google Now and the smoothness of project butter.  And just when you thought things  were great Samsung has offered even more reason to be excited about the already great device. Today Samsung has released part 1 of a video series that shows off the Premium Suite that will be coming to Galaxy S III’s in the (hopefully) near future.  The first feature was already covered yesterday with the 4.1.2 announcement, that’s the multi-view ability.  Essentially you get to run two apps simultaneously, one app on the top and one on the bottom.  But there’s some other features that will also be coming. For example, they’re adding a Facebook ticker on the lockscreen to show you what’s happening without opening anything at all. There’s also something called “Contextual Tag” which allows the location, whether, and date to be tagged when taking a photo.  While not super practical it could definitely come in handy if you’re travelling.  Some feature featured in the video have already made their way to the Galaxy S III in the last update but the whole point of the video is to keep you excited about what your device will be able to do. I’ll post part 2 once that...

What is Android?

What is Android?

When we think Android we immediately think of Google, yet you must know that this is not multinational project initiative. Moreover, it is not even the only full-time to contribute to its evolution. What is  Android…? The original “Android” was the name of a small American, founded in 2003 and bought by Google in 2005, which was the intention to enter the market for mobile products. The challenge behind Android was to develop a mobile operating system more intelligent, who would not be satisfied only afford to send SMS and forward calls, but would allow the user to interact with its environment (especially with its location). This is why, contrary to popular belief, it is not possible to say that Android is Google’s answer to Apple’s iPhone, since the existence of the latter has been revealed that two years later. It was in 2007 that the situation took another turn. At that time, each manufacturer équipait his phone a proprietary operating system. Each phone and had a more or less different. This system hindered the ability to easily develop applications that would suit all phones, since the base was completely different. A developer was more specialized in a particular system and had to settle for low-level languages like C or C + +. In addition, manufacturers were sure to deliver development libraries very small so as to conceal their secrets. In January 2007, Apple unveiled the iPhone, a phone simply revolutionary for the time. The announcement is a disaster for other manufacturers, which should align with this new competition. The problem is that to reach the level of iOS (iPhone OS), it would have taken years of research and development each manufacturer … This is why it is created in November of 2007 the Open Handset Alliance (which I now call by its acronym OHA), which had its inception in 35 companies operating in the mobile world, including Google. This alliance aims to develop an open source system (that is to say, whose sources are freely available on the internet) to operate on mobile and thus compete with proprietary systems, such as Windows Mobile and iOS. This alliance flagship software for Android, but it’s not his only activity. The OHA has currently 80 members. Android is now the operating system for smartphones and tablets the most used. Predictions regarding the distribution of Android on the market are very good with more and more machines are equipped with this system. Soon, it will be in some TVs (you’ve heard of Google TV, perhaps?) And cars. Android will be everywhere. It would be a shame not to be part of it, is not...
