Samsung unveils Galaxy S5 smartphone with larger display and heart-rate monitor

Samsung sought Monday to frame its new Galaxy S5 smartphone as a lifestyle product, as it emphasized a built-in heart-rate sensor and improved camera features over its slightly larger size.

One of the main appeals of Samsung phones has been their size. The screen has steadily increased since the 4 inches (10.2 centimeters) on the original S from 2010, while the iPhone made that jump to 4 inches only in 2012 and has stayed that way since.

Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL dual-SIM Android-based smartphones launched

Nokia has announced its first-ever smartphones based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), that can run Android apps and are powered by Microsoft and Nokia services.

Nokia X and Nokia X+ are dual-SIM phones that come with 4-inch 480x800 displays and are powered by 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. Both have identical 4GB internal storage, with expandable support up to 32GB via microSD card, and are powered by a 1500mAh battery. While the Nokia X comes with 512MB RAM, the Nokia X+ comes with 768MB RAM. Both phones have a 3-megapixel rear camera, but no front shooter. They are powered by a 1500mAh battery.

Nokia XL comes with a 5-inch 480x800 display, a 5-megapixel camera, a 720p front camera, 768MB RAM and a 2000mAh battery, while sharing other specifications with its younger siblings.

All three phones come with 3G support and take Micro-SIMs instead of regular ones.

The Nokia X will go on sale immediately, starting at EUR 89 (approximately Rs. 7,500 not including duties and taxes) in Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. The Nokia X+ and Nokia XL are expected to roll out in these markets starting early second quarter, priced at EUR 99 (approximately Rs. 8,400 not including duties and taxes) and EUR 109 (approximately Rs. 9,300 not including duties and taxes), respectively.

The highlight of the three devices of course is the highly customised version of Android, with its Metro-inspired UI and access to Nokia's own store. While there's no access to Google's Play Store, users can side-load Android apps from any third-party source. Nokia has used AOSP corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the baseline for its operating system.

Google 'Project Tango' 3D vision smartphone platform announced

Google announced a new research project Thursday aimed at bringing 3D technology to smartphones, for potential applications such as indoor mapping, gaming and helping blind people navigate.
The California tech giant said its "Project Tango" would provide prototypes of its new smartphone to outside developers to encourage the writing of new applications.

Project leader Johnny Lee said the goal of the project, which incorporates robotics and vision-processing technology, is "to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion."

"What if you could capture the dimensions of your home simply by walking around with your phone before you went furniture shopping?" Google said on its Project Tango web page.

Google's Project Tango Struts Into the Spotlight

Google is making an increased push into the 3D imaging sphere with the announcement of its Project Tango technology.
The project is aimed at helping mobile devices fully map a 3D space to give them the same type of understanding of space and motion that humans have through a blend of robotics and computer vision tools.

"Google has a reputation for finding value in places most other companies pay little attention to or overlook entirely," Charles King, principal analyst at Pund-IT, told TechNewsWorld.
"While large-scale projects like Google Maps and Earth approach their subjects with a macro view, providing context valuable to the user, you could say that with Project Tango Google is reversing the telescope for a micro view of highly localized locales, including homes, rooms, etc.," he explained.
"The bet the company is making is that garnering insights from enclosed spaces will be particularly valuable for end users," said King.

Samsung's New Galaxy S5 Might Ship Bathtub-Ready

Of all the Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors to hit this week, the one that had me sit up straight and pay close attention is the rumor that the new Galaxy S5 may be both waterproof and dustproof.
This is a big deal, because it would be the first major flagship smartphone with wide and popular distribution to be waterproof.
Of course, Samsung last year offered the Galaxy S4 Active, which was a variant of its regular Galaxy S4. The Active version had a slightly bigger case and was IP67 certified: It could withstand a 30-minute submersion down to about 3 feet of water.
Unfortunately, you could still void the warranty if the unit actually failed and water seeped inside, killing your Galaxy S4 Active and leaving you high and dry with no recourse other than shelling out for a new phone.
In fact, there were some reports of Galaxy S4 Active units failing under normal, expected underwater use, which surely didn't help launch sales to true outdoor enthusiasts.

Google Barge to set sail for new home within a month

Google Barge, which has been sitting unfinished and idle alongside a pier in the middle of San Francisco Bay, will soon be on the move.
CNET has learned that the barge project, expected to be a floating product and Google X concept showroom, will be relocated in a month or less from its current home alongside Treasure Island. Earlier this month, a California state agency said Google either had to move the project somewhere else or get a permit to finish construction at Treasure Island's Pier One.

If you have an internet-enabled device and you are anywhere on the stretch from NIT-Patna on Ashok Rajpath to Danapur, you can now access the internet free of cost.

Once known as a backward state, Bihar has made a strong bid for a mention on the world's infotech map as chief minister Nitish Kumar unveiled the 20km free Wi-Fi zone, the longest across the globe, at a function christened e-Bihar summit in Patna on Wednesday.

What 6 Months With an iPhone Showed This Windows Phone User

What 6 Months With an iPhone Showed This Windows Phone User is a post by Travis Pope from Gotta Be Mobile.
In September, I came to a decision to leave Windows Phone. Fed up with Microsoft’s foot dragging and equally unimpressed by the software that the HTC One had to offer, I sought comfort in Apple’s iPhone 5s. I told myself that the iPhone had everything I needed. I told myself that apps and games would make up for the iPhone’s shortcomings. I even hinted at iOS 7’s very flat design making the platform that much more exciting than Windows Phone was for me.

Kickstarter hacked, user data stolen

Hackers hit crowd-funding site Kickstarter and made off with user information, the site said Saturday.
Though no credit card information was taken, the site said, attackers made off with usernames, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and encrypted passwords.
"Actual passwords were not revealed, however it is possible for a malicious person with enough computing power to guess and crack an encrypted password, particularly a weak or obvious one," the site said in a blog post, adding that "as a precaution, we strongly recommend that you create a new password for your Kickstarter account, and other accounts where you use this password."
The site said law enforcement told Kickstarter of the breach on Wednesday night and that the company "immediately closed the security breach and began strengthening security measures throughout the Kickstarter system." The site also said "no credit card data of any kind was accessed by hackers" and that "there is no evidence of unauthorized activity of any kind on all but two Kickstarter user accounts."

Be one with Flappy Bird: The science of 'flow' in game design

When the smartphone phenomenon Flappy Bird took off not so long ago -- and before it morphed into something uncontrollable and became its own hard-to-swallow lesson for the game industry -- it was as if everyone you'd ever known had suddenly stumbled on mobile gaming's most brilliantly manufactured drug. Facebook and Instragram were awash in high score screenshots and admissions of addiction-fueled guilt while all of Twitter might as well have been Flappy Bird references with some news and global chatter sandwiched in between.
One particularly interesting boast from a friend of mine, who had hit a score of 100 long before anyone else I knew had even broken the 50-point mark, included a clearly tongue-in-cheek observation, "Towards the end, I felt like I was hovering above myself, watching myself play..."

Apple's M&A chief reportedly met with Tesla CEO Elon Musk

Apple may have been kicking the tires on Tesla, according to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle that reported the company's chief of mergers and acquisitions met with Tesla CEO Elon Musk last year.
Adrian Perica met with Musk and "probably" Apple CEO Tim Cook at Apple's Cupertino headquarters last spring, according to the report, which cited a source whose identity was concealed to protect business relationships.
"While a megadeal has yet to emerge (for all of its cash, Apple still plays hardball on valuation), such a high-level meeting between the two Silicon Valley giants involving their top dealmakers suggests Apple was very much interested in buying the electric car pioneer," the report said.

This isn't the first time an Apple acquisition of Tesla has been suggested. Adnaan Ahmad, an analyst with German investment bank Berenberg, caused a media stir last October when he penned an open letter to Cook and Chairman Arthur Levinson that made a case that acquiring Tesla could give revenue Apple long-term revenue growth that is unavailable from smartphones and tablets.
"I know this is radical and potentially 'transformative' but this would radically alter Apple's growth profile," Ahmad wrote. "In Elon Musk, you could strike up a partnership and obtain a new iconic partner to lead Apple's innovation drive."

Smartphone charging: Toward a faster fill-er-up

Here's what makes our mobile devices ever more spectacular: larger screens, higher resolutions, faster modems, and speedier processors. And here's the oft substantial cost of all that: big-time battery consumption.
Handset makers constantly strive to squeeze more milliamps into a phone battery. The challenge of so while keeping a slim profile is clear to anyone who has used a charging case. But even here there is a tradeoff beyond potential girth. As batteries get larger and chargers send a fixed amount of juice using the microUSB specification, wireless charging times can increase dramatically.

Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 review

Samsung was one of the first companies to really run with the idea of big-screen phones. Others had tried before and failed, but Samsung managed to turn its original Galaxy Note into a massive success. Big screens have since percolated down to the more budget-oriented phones, but these usually have lower resolutions and weaker processors, negating many of the advantages phones that size. Samsung's own Galaxy Grand was meant to appeal to people who wanted a big screen just for the sake of having a big screen, without paying flagship-level prices.

The original Galaxy Note had a 5.3-inch 800x1280-pixel screen, which was pretty cutting-edge in 2011. Today, you can get full-HD 1080x1920-pixel screens in phones that cost a quarter of what Samsung's late-2011 flagship did at the time of its launch. The company's latest budget big-screen offering, the 5.25-inch Galaxy Grand 2, actually matches the original Note in terms of screen size and resolution. It's only 0.05 inches smaller, and runs at the 16:9 resolution of 720x1280 which is just as tall but a little bit narrower.

LG G2 Mini with rear buttons teased for February 24 launch at MWC 2014

LG has finally officially revealed the LG G2 Mini, by posting a teaser image on its Facebook page, which depicts objects in pairs, one big, and one small. The last of the images clearly shows the LG G2, and a smaller smartphone besides it.

The LG teaser image (complete image seen below) on the Facebook page is also accompanied by a tagline, saying: "Experience the MINI. Mobile World Congress. 2014-02-24.", which clearly signifies a February 24 announcement for the G2 Mini.

For now, no official LG G2 Mini specifications have been revealed, though we can expect the device to feature a similar build (including the famous rear buttons from the G2) as the LG G2, in a smaller form factor, and more basic specifications. Earlier rumoured specifications have been contradictory, with reports of it either sporting 4.3-inch qHD display, or a 4.7-inch display.

Other rumoured specifications for the LG G2 Mini (accompanied by the 4.7-inch display leak) suggest the smartphone will feature a Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, though if the 4.3-inch qHD display turns out to be real, this seems unlikely.

Lava Iris Pro 30 review

Nokia, the Finnish smartphone and tablet maker, has always been considered a game changer in the ever-evolving smartphone industry. As a rival to other world leaders including Samsung and Apple, the firm fell behind for a while but has now made a huge comeback with its line of Lumia devices running the Windows Phone OS.

At last year's Nokia World event, the company introduced six new handsets. While the high-end phablets took the spotlight, Nokia also made sure that it still caters to the needs of its budget customers. Introduced at the event, the Nokia Asha 502 budget smartphone is a shining example of how hard the firm is still trying to take over the low-end smartphone market by stuffing a bunch of impressive features into a small-sized device.
The Nokia Asha 502 is the successor to the Asha 501, and has some noticeable bodily and internal OS feature tweaks.

In hand, the Asha 502 feels both compact and strong. We found its build and overall design very appealing, and the phone itself is comfortable to carry around.

After spending a decent amount of time with the Asha 502, testing its battery life, camera, Internet connectivity, gaming capabilities and much more, here is what we think about this budget handset.
