BlackBerry Z10 is the brand spanking new BlackBerry phone in the town that does not run the usual BlackBerry Operating System that we are familiar with. The previous generation of BlackBerry’s touch-driven smartphones felt a more like Nokia’s early attempt to knock Symbian into shape for touchscreen. However, with new BlackBerry Z10 the company has thrown everything out and has started fresh. And, one cannot exaggerate the position of this phone upon which the fate of BlackBerry (formerly Research in Motion) hangs.
The company has been on the rocks for the past year or so and it is no secret as the company admits that it has not been in the best shape of late and the 4G toting Z10 is the start of what is hoped to be a successful revolution. This time BlackBerry has also added a dash of fun.
On the whole, the phone may not wow you with its new design but it is a definite sturdy handset with a very decent build quality and functional layout that makes it easy to use. The phone is equipped with a 4.2" WXGA screen which is slightly bigger as well as sharper as compared to the iPhone 5's retina display. However, the company kept the overall package quite compact with all the connectivity features, hardware ports and slots.
Nokia has got all the presence and attention from its Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 that it needs to stay higher in Windows Phone 8 circles. Nokia Lumia 620 is designed to cater the lower midrange audience as it offers a downclocked dual-core Krait CPU with 512 MB of RAM and of course a style that is meant to target the young audience. With this approach, Windows Phone 8 (WP8) can create awareness among young users and reasonable spenders so that it can seriously challenge the dominating smartphone platforms. Nokia has made a smart decision with the Nokia Lumia 620 which certainly is a mid-range windows phone 8 smartphone.
This new device from Samsung is targeted for a pretty interesting niche and that is those people who eventually eager for a big screen smartphone, and the 5“ Samsung Galaxy Grand skimps on some features to reach this goal.
It may perhaps give the impression of being quite unfortunate for the Galaxy Grand that it'll be yesterday's news a week from now. But giving it a second thought, it has a better insurance policy against worthlessness as compared to many other most recent Samsung phones that tried too hard to compete with the Galaxy S III.
There is no doubt that this phone is apparently aimed at emerging markets. One should not judge it from the specs only but also from the availability of a dual SIM version and its functionality. Well, Samsung has been busy with releasing newly styled smartphone after the flagship the Samsung Galaxy S III. But, it will definitely make all the sense in the world for Samsung to unleash a big fat five-incher in a niche that other smartphone makers like Sony, HTC and LG are very much interested in too. Let us discuss whether Samsung has compromised too much or will it reach the newly created target market?
In October 2012 tablet markets around the world were stunned on the launch of Apple iPad mini. Users who were attracted to Samsung Galaxy tabs, Google Nexus or Dell Streak etc were turned to towards Apple iPad mini. As size does matter, this smaller body and light weight slate is quiet exquisite in looks. Not some out of the world to be expected but carry the same design. All aluminum body felt really good in hand and its light weight makes it easier to carry around. Apple iPad mini features the similar UI but with a slight enhancement to fit on 7.9 inches screen. If we compare Apple iPad mini to Apple iPad 4 then its sure lacks on different features due to size but still it has good potential. If we compare the market competition Apple iPad mini will be facing huge competition. Android based Tablets are not only offered by other major brand but also offered from different unbranded manufacturer as well.
Apple IPad mini features great built quality with its small body. It powered by Apple A5 Dual Core chipset. All your applications, games, multimedia runs great as Apple promise. Wi-Fi experience will be noticeable as Apple iPad mini hold a dual band capability to deliver the best performance. Apple iOS 6 works great on Apple iPad mini we find it very simple and very easy to manage. Display felt very nice and clear, can be said a bit less in resolution as compare to iPad 4 but still great to visibility. Apple iPad mini features a great 5MP Camera which delivers the best image quality. It also has a 1.5 MP front camera for video calls and video chats. For continue run Apple iPad mini comes with a good battery backup, it last for about 10 hours on normal usage which is quiet sufficient.
Lastly, one thing we like about Apple iPad mini is it’s availability in both cellular and non cellar models. Users who are just looking for a tablet will get a non-cellular iPad mini or users who are using iPod touch can get an upgraded Apple device.
