The ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TJ700 debuts

DSC00013_610x407Asus has been pretty busy of late creating the long-rumoured Nexus 7 tablet (to debut at Google I/O next week), the ASUS Padfone, and the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700.

Each one of the devices is exciting in it own right. The Nexus 7 is obviously generating the biggest headlines at the moment as there is a lot of mystery and speculation regarding it’s release. ASUS and bloggers have given up a lot of info about the Padfone and there are plenty of videos and opinions of their phone/dumb terminal combination. The third device hasn’t really settled on a radar yet, until now. As yet the Infinity has no official information about an upcoming launch. However, a presentation video for the TF700 just surfaced, giving us hope that the launch of the sleek transformer is indeed just around the corner.

The unlisted video was leaked by a redditor, who calls it a “launch video”. Not exactly the most reliable source, but the video does fit nicely with the other information we got so far on the TF700.

Flipboard now available to all Android users

2012-06-22_15-41-00

Flipboard is an application that hasn’t been around for that long but is an app that has attracted a lot of positive attention in its short life. I would say that the reason for this is the fact that you can synchronise all of your social networking accounts into one easy and very cool place to look at in your own time.

Flipboard is laid out just like a newspaper but in ‘Flip’ format which means that instead of turning pages you simply swipe up/down to view the next page. It is an app that you can customise day-by-day if you so wish because you can choose what sections of news and information you wish to view whenever you want to. For example I could choose to view my twitter account, technology news and T3′s specific news and nothing else if I wanted.

The reason that I am explaining the app to you is because although originally this was only available on Android via the Samsung Galaxy SIII on its release, it is now available to absolutely everyone from the Google Play store.

You can see some further screen shots and the download link below:

Lookout: Peace of mind for your smartphone

LookOut

We’re addicted to our mobile phones. The extent we’ve integrated phones into our lives causes anxiety and panic at the thought of losing them, according to new research by Lookout Mobile Security. Additionally, this dependency has seeped into our behavioural norms, where we’ve redrawn the boundaries of what classifies as “acceptable behaviour” in our pursuit to stay connected.

Recent Lookout studies in the UK and US support the view that this is a global phenomenon:

· In the US,  73% of users reported feeling “panicked”, while 7% said they felt “sick” when they lost their phone

· In the UK, 46% of people regard their mobile phone as their favourite gadget (with a mere 19% choosing their car)

· Brits would also choose to save their phone first from a burning building (23%) – beating laptops (20%), wallets (14%) and sentimental keepsakes (8%).

With this extreme attachment we are seeing an impact on our manners and day-to-day interactions, too:

· 71% of us in the UK check our mobile phones at least every hour, with 58% of US respondents admitting the same.

· Over 50% of smartphone owners in the US check their phone in bed at night; 1 in 5 check after sex

Microsoft announce Windows Phone 8 along with a bunch of great features

WP8

An event was held today with only people with invites from Microsoft being able to attend. A total of eight brand new features were announced for the platform which are aimed at finally competing with the likes of Android and iOS.

For many the most important feature announced today was multi-core support! This feature will support the same brands of processor that we are used to seeing, but in the newer devices we will be seeing more powerful versions of these processors from Qualcomm and ARM.

The start screen is another feature that has been completely redesigned to give you more choice, but also to allow you to cram more on the screen at once and just like all of the features announced this will come to all ‘new devices’. The only huge downside is the fact that windows phone 8 is incompatible with all current Windows Phone 7 devices! This is going to be disappointing for those who have bought a Windows Phone on a two year contract as you will be stuck on either 7.5 Mango or Tango.

The reason for this incompatibility issue is due to the support for much higher resolution screens, the resolutions that will be supported with Windows Phone 8 are: 1280 x 768, 1280 x 720 and also it will support the current 800 x 480 display resolution used.

Spotify updates its iOS app bringing streaming to non-premium users.

Spotify-Logo

The music streaming giant have announced that ‘in the next few days’ an update will roll out for iOS devices. The update will bring with it a feature that was introduced last year just for the desktop application, Radio. The key thing here though is that the feature will be available to both the premium users and the free users!
Users will be able to generate ‘Radio stations’ using artists, albums, songs and spotty playlists, one other thing that also remains is the feature that Spotify loves so much, this is of course the social functionality which means that songs and the radio stations will appear in your friends’ Facebook timelines. Also with this feature comes the ability to create a playlist based on what your friends listen to.
The radio feature according to the company themselves will be coming to all major platforms in due course but for now iPad, iPhone and iPod users can expect the update in a few days.

You can see the full press release below:

Microsoft announce the ‘Surface’ tablet – with two variations

Surface1

Over in Americaland Microsoft have unveiled the ‘Surface’ tablet which as expected many will say may rival the Apple iPad.

Let’s get straight down to the facts and what we know about the device or should I say devices as there are two variants.

  • Software takes center stage: Surface sports a full-sized USB port and a 16:9 aspect ratio – the industry standard for HD. It has edges angled at 22 degrees, a natural position for the PC at rest or in active use, letting the hardware fade into the background and the software stand out.

  • VaporMg: The casing of Surface is created using a unique approach called VaporMg (pronounced Vapor-Mag), a combination of material selection and process to mold metal and deposit particles that creates a finish akin to a luxury watch. Starting with magnesium, parts can be molded as thin as .65 mm, thinner than the typical credit card, to create a product that is thin, light and rigid/strong.

Microsoft Codex tablets could be on their way

account%20controls-580-75On Monday the 19th Microsoft be will be holding a bit on an event and a number of sources believe they will be announcing their own brand of tablets.

It has been a while since Microsoft have played ball in the hardware sector with anything that doesn’t have Xbox written on it. However, if Microsoft tackle it correctly they could be onto a winner.

It seems more likely Microsoft will bring in a company to do their hardware for them, as with partnering up with Nokia for Windows Phone. Aside from Xbox the biggest contribution to hardware Microsoft have made in the last few years is the Kin One and Kin Two. Recent rumours surrounding comments about HTC’s lack of experience to handle some form of Tablet also help reinforce the idea they will be partnering with a company to bring the Windows experience to tablets.

The budget end of the tablet market is really booming, Amazon have proved this Stateside with their Kindle Fire and Google look to be putting their stamp on it with the fabled Nexus Tablet. If Microsoft if hoping to play in this market they will have their work cut out for them as manufactures have always had to pay heavy licensing fees alongside high level specifications to push out a decent Windows tablet in the past.

Thankfully, there is no long wait to find out what is going to happen as we will know by tomorrow.
