Superbook gives your phone that Laptop potential

12671689-d4ea-42e5-b701-17ce1579542aWhilst Microsoft are blowing trumpets out there for Continuum there is no real alternative currently available for Android. Certainly there is Air Droid however it’s just to much of a different approach to be considered an alternative. Whilst Chrome itself has a nice Remote Desktop client that is very reliable and both of these options require an internet connection. However, they are a world apart from Continuum. So there is a gap in the market.

That’s were the brand new Andromium OS steps in. With a clean, sleek design to match the aesthetics of a “Superbook.” The Superbook is a laptop shell, purposefully engineered to give any Android smartphone the capabilities of a complete, internet-connected laptop. Inside the hardware is the technology to translate video data over USB, meaning it’s universally compatible with nearly any Android smartphone. Just download the Andromium app from the Play store, connect the smartphone to a Superbook, and that’s it, your phone is now a laptop.

We won’t see this on the market right away, The Superbook and Andromium is on scheduled to launch on @Kickstarter on June 15th! However, it  sounds like the sort of thing that could work. There have been several attempts over the years to create a dumb terminal that translates your phone into a laptop operating system however none have been as conceptually realise as the Superbook. The names Redfly and Palm Foleo spring to mind, ideas that might have been ahead of the time. The Superbook may just arrive with time enough to make an impression before Google does something about the position of Chrome and Android.

Huawei P9 Lite arriving this month

unnamedHuawei has announced the plans to launch the P9 Lite in the UK. The smartphone will be available from EE, O2, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse at the end of May. The P9 Lite joins the P9 and P9 Plus to complete the flagship series and offering another option for those not enamoured by the P9 and P9 Plus’ large footprint and price tag.

Featuring a 5.2-inch full HD display, 13MP rear shooter, 8MP front-facing camera, Kirin 650 octa-core processor, 3000mAh battery, 16GB of onboard storage, MicroSD card support, 4G LTE support and a fingerprint 2.0 sensor. The P9 Lite keeps a high level of spec and looks to be the most interesting of the trio.

Huawei P9 family extended with P9 Lite

Available in the UK in May from EE, O2, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.

Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) has announced the P9 Lite, an exciting new addition to the popular P9 family. The P9 Lite marries a sleek, stylish design with a powerful camera and creative photo editing capabilities, as well as the latest in high fidelity audio, fingerprint sensor technology and battery saving technology.

The P9 Lite smartphone will be available in the UK from late May and can be purchased in black from EE, O2, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.

Weighing just 147g and slim line with a 7.5mm depth, the P9 Lite’s lightweight, stylish, aluminium frame and sleek appealing form factor, results in a truly premium design, without the price tag to match.

Its bright 5.2 inch screen is encased in an aircraft-grade aluminium frame, ensuring the P9 Lite finds the perfect equilibrium between looking durable and aesthetically appealing. With a high screen-to-body ratio of 76.4 and an NTSC colour gamut of 85%, there are several reasons why the P9 Lite is a sight to behold.

With the P9 Lite’s 13MP rear camera, which boasts dual LED flash and autofocus, amateur photographers have clear, lifelike images at the tips of their fingers. With the ability to set white balance, ISO EV and shutter speed in pro camera mode, those that like to tinker with the finer details of the art of photography, can do so with ease.

The 8MP front camera produces full HD resolution images of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, so perfect selfies can be captured day and night.

Audiophiles also have reason to fall in love with the P9 Lite, with high fidelity audio and an integrated speaker design, the low frequency, volume and quality of the sound has seen considerable improvement since the last generation P series devices.

With ARM and TrustZone technology integrated into the P9 Lite’s lightning fast fingerprint 2.0 sensor, users can access everything in an instant, while ensuring private data remains private.

In terms of connectivity, the P9 Lite follows in the P9 family’s footsteps and comes equipped with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, Huawei’s intuitive Emotion 4.1 user interface and supports 4G. The P9 Lite has a HiSilicon Kirin 650 octocore processor, making the smartphone a powerful younger brother of the P9 and P9 Plus.

Thanks to its 3,000 mAh battery and ability to reduce power as required, the P9 Lite allows continuous calling time of up to 18 hours and standby time of 630 hours, (when operated on 3G).

The P9 Lite has plenty of storage capacity for higher memory requirements, coming with 16GB of internal memory and a microSD card slot which can support 128GB of expanded memory.

Rhys Saunders, Sales Director, Huawei UK&I Consumer BG, said: “With the P9 smartphone family, Huawei are offering users a superior smartphone experience. The latest edition to the family, the P9 Lite, with its lower price point, is no exception to this. The phone has a premium and stylish look and feel, a high-resolution rear and front camera, as well as a powerful battery, making this a perfect companion for budding photographers on the go.”

Samsung Galaxy X to feature a foldable 4K display

samsung-foldable-tablet-1We have heard rumours over the last few years that claim Samsung have been working on a foldable phone. We have seen images of flexible screens is all shapes and sizes. However it sounds like Samsung might be bringing this angle to the market in 2017.  The latest rumour comes from the site Weibo in China. According to the sources, Samsung will release five flagships in 2017. Four of them are the standard launches: Galaxy S8, S8 Edge, Galaxy Note 7, and Note 7 Edge. A fifth device is being called “Galaxy X,” and it will apparently feature a foldable 4K display. The display will have diamond PenTile subpixel arrangement and fold in half like a wallet. That’s all we know so far about the Galaxy X.

There has been a drive over the last year to resurrect the flip phone thanks to TV shows glamorising the form factor on many Primetime TV shows. Rather than stepping back to the T9 days of the flip phone it makes sense that we take a step forward and make the modern technology bend to our needs and desires.

Acer Liquid Jade Primo Live Unboxing #Acerliveblog2016

Liquid-Jade-Primo_06Acer have taken on Belfast and with that brought an Acer Liquid Jade Primo for us to have a look at. Filmed on Periscope live from the event the video quality might not be the best however the Liquid Jade Primo is a good looking Windows 10 device that looks to make a bit of noise in the market.

The Liquid Jade Primo, is a 5.5-inch premium smartphone running Windows 10 Mobile. The Liquid Jade Primo provides ultimate productivity for professionals through Continuum, allowing Windows 10 universal apps to provide a PC-like experience when the smartphone is connected with a secondary display.

Multitasking Multiplied

With a USB Type-C monitor, wireless display accessories, or the Display Dock, the Liquid Jade Primo can provide a PC-like experience on an external display with Windows 10 universal apps. It can be used as a touchpad and virtual keyboard, or a keyboard and mouse can be connected for multitasking on both the screen and on the external display; this unlocks use-cases such as:

  • Connecting the smartphone to a TV or monitor at hotels or anywhere on the go for productivity-intensive applications, so that the heavier laptop can be left at home.
  • Projecting presentation decks to a projector or large screen, while displaying the “Presenter View” on the smartphone.
  • Playing videos on the TV while using other apps on the smartphone simultaneously.

The Liquid Jade Primo features a stunning 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display that supports 100% of the NTSC colour gamut, with 10000:1 contrast, and 176-degree wide-viewing angles. A hexa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 808 processor, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory provides powerful performance needed for multitasking, while LTE Cat. 6 and 802.11ac MIMO connectivity options makes downloads a snap. The 21MP f/2.2 auto-focus rear camera has dual LED flash and supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording, and the 8MP f/2.2 front-facing camera boasts a wide-angle of up to 84-degrees while supporting up to Full HD 1080p video recording.

Engineering Excellence

To reduce the heat that resource-intensive multitasking brings, the Liquid Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system that efficiently dissipates the heat from the processor, while also reducing the overall rear surface temperature. For a slimmer chassis, the Liquid Jade Primo’s antenna is formed by laser direct structuring (LDS) technology, allowing integration of the antenna and back cover. Also contributing to the slimmer profile is on-cell touch technology, which moves the touch layer onto the outer glass surface of the screen, eliminating the touch substrate layer. 

Enterprise-Grade Security and Device Management With BitLocker technology on Windows 10 Mobile, the Liquid Jade Primo allows for full encryption of all user data stored on internal memory, protecting the device from offline hardware-level attacks. For corporate users, the Liquid Jade Primo also supports device management solutions such as Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA DM) v1.2 and Microsoft Intune, so that IT personnel can help users be productive while safeguarding company information.

Pricing and Availability

The Acer Liquid Jade Primo will be available in EMEA in February with prices starting at €569

The Liquid Jade primo is available as a standalone purchase, bundled with the Display Dock, or available as a Desktop Kit with an additional keyboard and mouse. Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region. To find out about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office or retailer via www.acer.com.

See the fun as it happens:

HTC present the HTC 10

10 PREVIEWHTC has today unveiled what it has been working on behind closed doors for the last 12 months, with the launch of its latest smartphone. With customer feedback an integral part of the development process, combined with an obsessive attention to detail, the HTC 10 delivers everything that you would want from a flagship device.  

Playing to the Power of 10 – symbolizing greatness and independence but also that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts – this newest addition to the HTC phone family combines a world class camera with gold standard audio, bold new metal unibody design and unparalleled performance.

Inspired by light and sculpted to perfection, the HTC 10 employs a new approach to design where bold contours are carved out of solid metal. Capturing the light beautifully, the chamfered edges boast a slimmer, more slender look with its full glass front merging seamlessly into the metal body. download2 Passionate about the small details, it’s not just the materials that come under scrutiny when we create a new handset. With the HTC 10, our design teams worked tirelessly to build a phone where the power button has been beautifully crafted, where the speakers deliver a sleeker look and better sound quality and where the fingerprint sensor recognizes your finger from almost any angle. It is also important that we got the build absolutely right.

Mercilessly engineered to handle everyday knocks, bumps and scratches, the HTC 10 was subjected to over 168 hours of extreme temperature tests, ranging from a freezing -20’C to a scorching 60’C, plus over 10,000 drop, bend, scratch and corrosion tests.

World-class camera! With HTC 10 we’ve delivered what we believe to be the best smartphone camera available on the market today. With the world’s first optically stabilized, larger aperture f/1.8 lenses on both the front and rear cameras, new larger sensors, 12 million of our new generation UltraPixels (1.55um per pixel), faster laser autofocus powering the main camera and a wide angle lens and screen flash on the front UltraSelfieTM camera, this smartphone delivers brilliantly sharp, low light and high-resolution photos whether behind or in front of the lens.

download3 With the camera designed to launch in as little as 0.6 seconds, and a 2nd generation laser autofocus that gives you focused shots faster, it’s quick enough to even work in burst mode. All the settings are also conveniently located at your fingertips with Pro Mode still offering advanced options for more experienced photographers, including RAW format functionality. Boasting a DxOMark score of 88*, this is one of the highest camera quality scores of any smartphone to date and is the result of tens of thousands of hours spent fine tuning each element to deliver world-class photos and videos.

Best in sight, best in sound

But it’s not just the imaging that puts this smartphone at the top of its game – the HTC 10 combines vivid 4K video with the world’s first stereo 24-bit Hi-Res audio recording, capturing 256 times more detail than standard recordings, across twice the frequency range and enabling you to bring to life your recorded content as if you were actually there in person. download4 Built for audiophiles, the HTC 10 is certified for Hi-Res audio and has been designed to make music sound the way that the artist intended. A headphone amp that delivers two times the power of a conventional headphone amp, the ability to upscale from 16-bit to 24-bit audio and high performance digital to analogue conversion combine beautifully to produce ten times lower distortion than other devices on the market, delivering an all round audio performance that cannot be beaten.

Everyone hears things differently, which is why the HTC 10’s all-new Personal Audio Profile system enhances your audio experience even further. By creating a unique profile that is tuned to your individual hearing, it dynamically adjusts specific sound frequencies to each ear, allowing you to hear music the way that the artist intended. Re-engineered HTC BoomSound™ Hi-Fi edition speakers feature the same separated tweeter and woofer design as leading acoustic systems and combine with a dedicated amplifier on each speaker, adding to the experience and delivering sound clarity unprecedented on a smartphone.  

Great audio deserves great earphones so we have made sure that our flagship phone comes with the best Hi-Res audio certified inbox earphones yet. Featuring an 8µm thin aerospace polymer diaphragm and 70% oversized drivers, the listener is treated to richer sound and twice the frequency range, enabling you to enjoy the best audio experience right from the get go.

Performance at its Best

Whilst the HTC 10 nails it on the hardware, we have also delivered what we believe to be best in class software by focusing on getting the fundamentals right. With apps that launch twice as fast and that perform to the highest standard and a next generation quad HD display that is 30% more colourful, creating a true cinematic feel, and that is 50% more responsive to touch than its predecessor, even the smallest and fastest of finger movements track perfectly. download5 This attention to detail doesn’t stop there! With security high on people’s agendas, we have created a fingerprint scanner, which unlocks in a lightening fast 0.2 seconds and which has been algorithmically designed to recognise you faster and more accurately over time. Engineered from the inside out to last longer, the HTC 10 boasts the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with enhanced 4G LTE.

Each device also comes with Boost+ which is designed to make your phone faster, to consume less power and to provide effective security and application management features. This includes smart boost, which automatically optimises your memory, a game battery booster, which uses less battery during gameplay, and a new PowerBotics system, which auto detects and shuts down apps that use excessive power, improving battery life by 30% and delivering up to two days charge. Not only does Boost+ optimize performance, making it easier to launch apps, but its App Lock function also adds a new layer of security by enabling you to lock any app you choose, whilst App Manager provides an instant fix for when an app isn’t behaving. The HTC 10 also includes the latest in-box quick charge 3.0 Rapid Charger with improved thermal management, so the battery can be charged by up to 50% in just 30 minutes – ideal for people who find their phone running low on juice before the end of the working day.

Controlled by You!

By reducing the number of duplicative and pre-loaded apps and bloatware, and integrating the best of both HTC and Google, we have created a more streamlined phone that enables you to decide what you want on your handset. With HTC’s specially created new Freestyle Layout, you no longer have an on-screen grid that dictates the layout. Instead you can get creative by dragging icons, stickers and widgets anywhere you like. Layer them, group them, link stickers to apps or get rid of screen icons altogether, the choice is yours. download6 The latest version of HTC Themes also provides you with access to thousands of professional looking themes that each come with their own icons, backgrounds and sounds so you can customize your phone based on your own personal style.

Accessories and availability

To further streamline your experience, the HTC 10 offers an all-new Ice View case with a semi-transparent and highly versatile single front-cover case. So when that next call or message comes in, or when you need to skip a track, or snap that perfect shot, you can do it without even opening your smartphone’s case. It’s simplicity, without sacrificing protection.   The HTC 10 will come in two variants with different Qualcomm Snapdragon processors to cater for different market needs. They will both offer the same design, audio, camera and display, with a similar software experience and battery life.

The HTC 10 will be available from April 2016 in four stunning color combinations: Carbon Grey, Glacier Silver, Topaz Gold and Camellia Red. In the U.K., HTC 10 will be available across multiple operators, who will announce colours, availability and pricing in due course.

The UK will be ranging Carbon Grey, Glacier Silver and Topaz Gold and will be on-shelf from early May.  An unlocked edition will be available for Pre-order on www.HTC.com from today, 12th April. JBL and HTC will also be bringing you the world’s first USB-C sport earphone with noise cancellation and adaptive noise control. JBL Reflect Aware C earphones* combine sweat proof design with digital audio and battery-free active noise cancellation, so you can shut the outside world out and enjoy better than CD level music. *coming soon in selected countries
