Amazon Fire Glass on the horizon?

VfFsy8u_Over the weekend, Google’s Babak Parviz let slip  that he is no longer with the search engine giant, he posted image is Amazon’s logo, and the accompanying message reads “status: super excited!” Further investigation sees on his profile section, Parviz confirms the move to Amazon.

“Having worked at companies ranging from tiny start-ups to huge corporations and universities in Europe and the US, I have found each one to be fun in its own unique way,” he writes. “I founded and led a few efforts at Google (among them, Google Glass and Google Contact Lenses are public so far :) prior to moving to Amazon and work on a few other things now…”

Parviz pioneered the development of Google Glass way back when it was Project X. He has also been involved in Google’s “smart” contact lenses. Currently, there are no clues as to what he will be doing at Amazon. However, he is likely to participate in the Augmented Reality (AR) market. Based on Parviz’s track record and Amazon’s push into new hardware, one can only speculate what Parviz will be working on. Augmented Reality specs is likely on Amazon’s menu, allowing wearers to scan a product in a shop, pull up Amazon’s price, and place an order right there on the spot.

Acer Chromebook CB3 leaks online

Screenshot 2014-07-08 07.12.57Mobilegeeks.de report that a CB3 featuring an 11.6-inch screen, Intel Celeron N2830 (Bay Trail) processor chugging along at 2.13GHz and paired with 2GB of DDR3 RAM will go on sale in Europe priced at €219. If rumours are true then this model will be particularly attractive as the memory is not soldered on to the board but housed in a slot. This means, theoretically at least, that owners should be able to swap the 2GB RAM stick for something larger.

The now ubiquitous 1366×768 resolution features, albeit with a glossy rather than matte finish, and there’s 16GB of eMMC storage for housing all your files.  There are a pair of USB ports (1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0) and a full-sized HDMI out. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and webcam are all included, and the built-in battery is good for 8 hours.

Kitt on KitKat?

kitt-eyeAccording to the latest intel, Google is working to bring Google Now voice search functionality to all of of our devices, and they plan on making it completely hands-free. The source of this intel further shared that Google has an internal codename for the functionality. They are calling it KITT after the talking car in the 1980′s TV series.

On top of keeping it completely hands-free, they are supposedly even making it eye-free as well. The ultimate goal is to give users access to Google Now functionality without ever even needing to physically look at or interact with the device. The KITT capabilities will be completely voice driven.Of course, limited versions of this can already be seen in use right now with the Moto X and the Nexus 5. This report indicates Google wants to make it an Android feature for any brand or model device in the future. This could even lead to a convergence of Google’s driverless cars with Android products.

Despite the limited versions of this functionality already showing up in current devices, Google is supposedly a long way from making it viable. There are tow main hurdles they must overcome. One is figuring out a logistical way for users to be able to discern between voice search results without physically looking. The other is that it currently requires the device to be plugged in and charging because of the tremendous drain on battery.

Is Google Tangoing the tablet

Project-TangoIt looks like one of Google’s next tablets will be unlike anything we have seen before. According to a recent report, Google plans to bring Project Tango to an upcoming tablet product. Not much is known at this time, but the report explains that the Project Tango tablet will have a 7-inch display. It will also include two rear cameras, infrared depth sensors and “advanced software that can capture precise three-dimensional images of objects.”

Quote:
Google is planning to produce roughly 4,000 prototype Project Tango tablets to distribute to developers next month. The tablets will feature a 7-inch screen, two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture precise 3D images of objects.

Bryan Ma, an analyst at research firm IDC, said, “It is critical to open the new technology to developers first as the key is how you can translate the technology into practical applications.”

As you can see, this is one of Google’s next big developer push products. As usual, they keep coming up with “out of the box” ideas and throwing them at developers to see if they will stick. We will keep you apprised if/when we get any further details.

New rumours Google eyeballing HTC for another Nexus

HTC-TabletThis rumour has been heard before, however this is supposedly “supply chain” intel to corroborate them. According to this newest report, Google is still considering teaming up with HTC on a new Android Tablet. This may be an 8-inch device. The second part of this rumour suggests that Google is considering eliminating the Nexus line of Android tablets altogether after this device.

There are two possible reasons why Google could be using HTC instead of Asus for a future tablet. First, Google is apparently looking for a new outer design for the Nexus tablet. Second, according to the report, Asus has not been very motivated to try and push the Nexus tablet line, instead they are trying to build up its own brand cache. Ironically, this is exactly what Google wanted. They specifically put restrictions on how Asus could push the Nexus line. This was meant to spur the company to create its own line of Android products. 

Apparently, Google’s whole purpose with the Nexus tablets was simply to jump-start the industry so that Android tablets could compete effectively with the Apple iPad. Since that has been mostly successful, Google is considering pulling back to let the various OEMs run the show now. Asus is a good example of the outcome that Google was aiming for.
