Pixel C is the real deal

nexus2cee_upload-2There has been a lot of speculation about the Pixel C over the last day or so and now we know whats what.  The Pixel C is to have a 10.2-inch, with a 308 PPI touch display. The under the hood is NVIDIA’s Tegra X1 processor with Maxwell GPU and will come with either 32 or 64 GB storage options. With 3GB of RAM onboard this is likely to be the fast tablet running Android. Yes, the Pixel C runs Android over ChromeOS, a staple of the Pixel name in the past. In keeping with the Pixel Chromebooks the C has a the lightbar. 


Pixel C’s keyboard is a interesting feature. It attaches to the tablet magnetically, and connects via Bluetooth. The tablet has proximity sensors for the keyboard, it is aware of when it’s tucked away behind the device and when it is out and ready for use. The tablet will also inductively charge the keyboard when closed.

So what is with the OS switch under the Pixel name? Are Google bring ChromeOS to an end? Not likely, ChromeOS is a very big player in the education industry. Chromebooks have rolled out by the bucket load in schools all across the world. They are a success, you and your friends might not have one however there is a dedicated and loyal following. Like it or not, Cloud operating systems are the future and Google will not be letting go of their just yet.

My theory with the Pixel name is manufacturing. Google publicly announces partnerships for the manufacturing of its Nexus phones and tablets however Google has not disclosed its manufacturing sub-contractor for the Chromebook Pixel. Mirroring this with the Pixel C Google have been silent about the manufacturer. Had this been a collaboration with Asus or Huawei the tablet might have been a Nexus instead.

The Pixel C will be available in the coming months, and will cost $499 for the 32GB and $599 for 64GB, with the keyboard accessory costing $150.

Google working on a Pixel C?

google-chromebook-pixel-2-540x334Rumours are afoot that Google is to launch a new Pixel device in the coming months, not running Chrome OS. It will be a 10.2-inch Android tablet with detachable keyboard and marketed as the ‘Pixel C’. A new Pixel tablet is said to be designed by Google, made from high-grade parts and might be arriving in the next couple of months.

The Pixel C, code named Ryu, will have a 10.2-inch display with 308ppi and a super-bright back light capable of 500 nits. Inside there’s an NVIDIA X1 quad-core processor and Maxwell GPU. This is supplemented by 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

The build quality will continue to feel like a Pixel, which have all offered metal designs and gorgeous screens. The tablet will look like the existing laptops, just minus the keyboard.

A little bit of brand confusion to shake things up. Google has a line of Android tablets called Nexus, the Pixel name has always been synonymous with Chrome, why meddle with that… unless is dual boots ChromeOS and Android 6.0?

The Lenovo Miix 700 in 60 Seconds

vlcsnap-error167Lenovo have come up with an option for those Microsoft Surface Pro lovers out there who are finding it too expensive to justify. With prices starting around $700 the Miix 700 covers much of the same ground, without the killer i3, i5 and i7 processor options. Instead, Lenovo have chosen the Core M7 to keep things moving. An impressive hinge mechanism helps with some of the limitations of the Surface Pro’s read angle on the desktop and lap.

  • Networks: Optional LTE
  • Connections: USB 2.0 microUSB

Archos Diamond Plus Showing off a Bigger Screen

diamondAfter a series of exciting announcements regarding its ARCHOS Diamond line, ARCHOS is thrilled to cap off the releases with the news of a second Diamond smartphone: the ARCHOS Diamond Plus!

“There’s no reason customers should have only one model option in our quest to offer 4G/LTE smartphones to a greater public. Offering a larger-screened product with a slightly different design gives ARCHOS customers more diversity and choice,” says Loic Poirier, CEO of ARCHOS.

A Multi-Faceted Diamond

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus offers all the hallmark traits of the prestigious Diamond line — an Octa-Core processor, 4G/LTE connectivity, great cameras, and more — in a new silver design featuring a gorgeous 5.5” inch FHD IPS screen with full lamination. Sleek, thin, with a slightly curved silver back-casing, the ARCHOS Diamond Plus is immediately eye-catching, especially with its bright screen illuminated.

The Octa-Core Cortex A53 1.5GHz processor in the ARCHOS Diamond Plus smartphone is among the highest quality hardware available in smartphones today. With industry-leading power, this processor seamlessly powers apps, games, and web browsing. All of this content can be stored in the roomy 16GB of storage in the device, which is easily expandable up to 32GB with a MicroSD card. It also has fast charging capability to be fully ready as soon as possible.


Its two cameras clock in at 16MP for the back camera and 8MP for the front camera. A five-element lens of the back camera prevents distortion, and the very wide angle of the front camera is perfect for selfies. You’ll look great in photos (and look great taking them)!

All of this great functionality of the ARCHOS Diamond Plus runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, Android’s newest operating system, which offers improvements to previous versions of impressive Android software.

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus will be unveiled for the first time at IFA in Berlin beginning September 4, 2015. To see more new ARCHOS products at IFA, the group can be found in Hall 4.2/121.

The ARCHOS Diamond Plus will be available in November 2015 for £179.99.

Top 4 Questions To Ask Your Screen Repair Centre

Iphone-Ipad-posterCracked screens are one of the main reasons for getting your iPhone, iPad or iPod repaired. Due to their size and portable nature, it is only a matter of time before the inevitable happens. As the screen is made of glass, any cracks can leave dangerous sharp edges that can cause injury. Over time the cracks will get worse, so it’s a good idea to cover the affected area with sellotape to protect your fingers and to stop loose glass falling out.

If your device has been dropped onto a hard surface then, it is quite common for the metal edges of the rear cover to be dented, particularly on the corners. As the metal is aluminium this can dent very easily. The good news is that in most cases, the rear metal cover does not need to be replaced in order to fit replacement glass. As the metal is fairly soft, it is relatively easy to straighten out any dents to ensure the new glass fits properly.

iPhone Cracked Screen


The first thing to check is whether you can still see images on the iPad. If there is no distortion and the colours appear normal then the underlying LCD is unlikely to have been affected. For the vast majority of screen repairs, there is no need to replace the underlying LCD.

Many iPhone and iPad users are unaware of what is involved with a screen repair which is why we’ve listed the following questions that may help you make a more informed decision.


Ask About…The Quality Of The Glass

There are lots of thin imitation screens available on the market and whilst these may work initially they are far less durable and more susceptible to crack even during normal handling. The thicker the glass the more durable it is which is why it is important to ask the repair centre what they use.

Ask About…The Adhesive Used

We have seen countless examples of screens coming away (delaminating) from repair centres that haven’t used the correct adhesive. At Fone Angels we make sure to sure the same high strength adhesive that was used in the original iPad or iPhone.

Ask About…The Testing

Due to the complexity of modern smartphones, a screen replacement involves opening up your device and the careful re-fitting of components. This is particularly important if the device is being posted back to the customer as it is not easy to ‘pop in’ to rectify any problem.

Ask About…The Warranty

To give reassurance, repair centres offer warranty for any repairs – some provide 90 days, others don’t offer anything,  Fone Angels provide a 12 month warranty on all our repairs as standard!
