Bluetooth Pocketable Keyboard from Kickstarter for Android and iOS Phones

October 1st, 2012

I was very excited to use a virtual keyboard but my experience of typing on this keyboard is bad…There are some virtual keyboards which may be less bad but the ultimate experience is ‘all are bad’. Why use these bad keyboards? Well, the virtual keyboards are used so that we access a larger screen of the phones. That’s the sole reason why keyboards are the greatest selling accessories for tablets and iPads.

Is it painful for you to use the virtual keyboard anyway? Kickstarter has brought a solution for you – Journo, the pocketable keyboard. Although this keyboard is not new, but it was surely missing from mobile world.

The New LG Optimus Vu Phablet: Pass or Buy?

August 24th, 2012

It’s a smartphone…it’s a tablet…no, it’s a phablet!  The Dell Streak released in 2010 perhaps owns the title of being the first phablet to hit the consumer market. The term “phablet” refers to any device with larger touchscreens of 5 inches and above. It is also distinguished by its use of a stylus pen. The idea of a phablet is for you to enjoy the best of both smartphones and tablets, eliminating the need for other devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Note, which put the phablet into the mainstream market, is perhaps the phablet to beat at present.  With the Note’s success comes a new phablet player in the market, the LG Optimus Vu, which was announced at the Mobile World Congress back in February.  Rumors have it that that this direct competitor to the Galaxy Note will don the Verizon logo and will be released this September as of this writing. The question is, is it worth it?

Size and Display – The LG Optimus Vu boasts of a 5-inch, 1024-by-768-pixel, HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. By comparison, the Note has a 5.3 inch HD Super AMOLED screen, corning Gorilla glass, and a higher resolution of 1280 X 800. At 8.5mm, you will find the VU to be slimmer than the Note, which is 9.65mm thick.

Google officially planned to Show Off Android 3.0 Honeycomb Next Week

January 31st, 2011

Finally. Android 3.0 Honeycomb. It’s been talked about, it’s been rumored, it’s had spy shots taken, but all that was unofficial. Next week that all changes when, according to Mobilized, Google officially shows off the next major version of its open source operating system.

Everyone knows Android 3.0 is optimized for tablets and will be bringing some new feature sets, and it’s even been shown off a bit from afar. But this time it’s personal: real people will be getting their hands on actual demo units to see just what it can really do.

Admittedly, it’s not the most advanciest of advances: next month the Motorola Xoom is scheduled to hit the street, and shortly after that the new LG Tablet will be out on T-Mobile’s network. Both use the new Android 3.0 as their operating system.

So what though? For those that have been waiting eagerly to see just what’s what with the new OS, the time will come next Wednesday, in Mountain View. Sadly, mere mortals aren’t invited, but there should be plenty of coverage from every major tech blog. As for other announcements that may or may not happen at the event, Google is tight-lipped – but don’t be surprised to see something unexpected.
