Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet With 2K Display


Deprecated: Function eregi() is deprecated in /home/gadgets/public_html/wp-content/plugins/tpbc.php on line 96

sony_xperia_z41.jpg

Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z4 Tablet has been accidentally confirmed by the company.

The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet on Tuesday made an appearance on the official Xperia Lounge application, before being quickly pulled by Sony.

The tipped screenshot of the Xperia Z4 Tablet appearance partially reveals the tablet design also notes the March 3 date - suggesting the launch date, and that the device will feature “ultra fast processor”, a 2K display along with a big size battery in compact design.

“Sony’s stunning 2K display combined with latest ultra fast processor and industry leading battery performance delivers unrivalled entertainment in a lightweight premium.”

Coming to the design, it seems that the Xperia Z4 Tablet is following the same design language as of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Rest of the details are unknown at this point and we will have to wait until next Tuesday, March 3 for the same. The latest ‘ultra fast processor’ could be referring to the Snapdragon 810, which till date has only been seen in the LG G Flex2.

In other news, Sony quietly launched the 4G-enabled version of its Xperia E4 smartphone on Tuesday. Dubbed Sony Xperia E4g, the smartphone will also be available in a dual-SIM version as well. The handset has been priced at EUR 129 (roughly Rs. 9,100) and will start reaching markets by April this year.

Specifications of the Sony Xperia E4g include a 4.7-inch qHD (540×960 pixel) display; a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6732 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM; a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash; a 2-megapixel front-facing camera; 8GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD card; a 2300mAh battery and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

samsung-galaxy-a3-a5.jpg

Samsung, which has never had any shortage of models available in the market at any given time, has launched a new assault on the mid-range segment. The new Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 slot in alongside the new Galaxy E5 and Galaxy E7, and many of the features of the two new lines overlap. We had a chance to spend some hands-on time with all four at the company’s launch event in Mumbai.

The primary difference is that the A-series models have metal bodies while the E-series are made of polycarbonate. Unlike the convention established with Samsung’s popular Galaxy S lineup, the number at the end of each model name does not correspond to when it was launched. Far from simplifying its lineup and naming schemes, Samsung now uses the number to differentiate models based on screen size.

The new Samsung Galaxy A3 has a 4.5-inch screen while its sibling, the Samsung Galaxy A5, has a 5-inch screen.

Samsung touts the new Galaxy A-series as slim and light, and this is true of both models. While the Galaxy A5 weighs 123g, the Galaxy A3 comes in at just 110g. Both are comfortable to hold and use, though the A3 in particular seemed to fit perfectly in our hands. The build quality of both models was also quite satisfying.

The metal bodies are subtle, and in fact Samsung’s plastic E-series which launched alongside have chrome rims that look shinier. While looks might be deceiving, the A-series phones are definitely metallic to the touch. The shape is still true to Samsung’s template, but these phones have straighter edges and less rounded corners than their E-series counterparts. The front face extends to the phone’s edges, and there’s a subtle dotted pattern around the screen. The trademark oblong Home button is beneath the screen, and the capacitive Back and Recents buttons are invisible till you tap them.

The cameras protrude slightly from the rear on both phones. Being unibody designs, there is no removable cover. The microSD and SIM card slots are on the right edge below the power button, while volume buttons are on the left. The headset socket is on the bottom, next to the Micro-USB port.

Both the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5 use unspecified quad-core 1.2GHz processors and have the same 720×1280-pixel screen resolution. The A3 has 1GB of RAM and a 1,900mAh battery, but the A5 has 2GB of RAM and a 2,300mAh battery. 16GB of internal storage and support for up to 64GB microSD cards are common across both devices, as are Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n support. Both phones have 5-megapixel front cameras just like the E-series models do but the rear cameras of the A3 and A5 have 8-megapixel and 13-megapixel sensors respectively.

moto-maxx1.JPG

Motorola India seems to be gearing up to launch its high-end Moto Maxx in India via its exclusive online retail partner, Flipkart.The online retailer on Thursday teased the launch of the Motorola Moto Maxx in India via a tweet that read, “There’s a Moto beast coming your way… exclusively on Flipkart.

The tweet was accompanied by an image that included taglines such as “Get your life turbocharged” and “accelerated performance, Ballistic Nylon fairing, revving in soon.” The tweet is clearly referring to the Ballistic Nylon build of the Moto Maxx.

Unfortunately, there was no mention of any launch date from the online retailer; though we can expect more details to surface as the India launch closes in.

To recall, Motorola launched the Moto Maxx smartphone in November as the global variant of the Droid Turbo that is exclusive to US mobile carrier Verizon. It was priced at BRL 2,199 (approximately Rs. 48,000) for the 64GB model.

The Moto Maxx also features a layer of DuPont Kevlar fibre, and is claimed to be protected inside and out with water-repellent nano-coating. It packs a massive 3900mAh battery, the biggest amongst some of the high-end phones. The Moto Maxx also supports Motorola’s Turbo Charger, a new accessory from the company stables that is said to provide 8 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging.

Other specifications of the Moto Maxx include a 5.2-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display offering a pixel density of 565ppi; a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer; a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz coupled with an Adreno 420 GPU and 3GB of RAM; a 21-megapixel rear autofocus camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual-LED flash, and a 2-megapixel front camera. Connectivity options on the Moto Maxx include 4G LTE with LTE Cat 4, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Micro-USB, and GSM/ EDGE/ HSPA+. As mentioned above, the smartphone comes only in one storage variant - 64GB.

Here are our favourite tools that let you add widgets and other UI customisations to Windows 8.

1. Rainmeter

This desktop customisation program is compatible with Windows 8. Rainmeter lets you customise your experience by adding widgets (called skins) that float on the desktop. These can range from system resource monitors, to feeds from your email accounts. Weather forecasts and scratchpads are just some of the other customisations you can add, and the best thing is that users upload their own custom skins as well, so there’s a huge repository of customisations that are ready to download and use.

2. 8GadgetPack

If you don’t want to be overwhelmed with customisation options, and just want your desktop gadgets, then 8GadgetPack is the easiest option out there. It’s been highly recommended by many users, and while we prefer the customisability of Rainmeter, if you’re more interested in the functions than in a beautiful display, then 8GadgetPack is a good choice. It creates a sidebar on your Windows 8 desktop, where you can display the clock, calendar, weather and other widgets.

There are widgets for Gmail, a simple currency convertor, RSS feeds and calendars. These make 8GadgetPack a useful, unobtrusive method to keep on top of things without wasting time in setting things up.There are widgets for Gmail, a simple currency convertor, RSS feeds and calendars. These make 8GadgetPack a useful, unobtrusive method to keep on top of things without wasting time in setting things up.

3. Start Screen Unlimited

Start Screen Unlimited is a start screen replacement that allows you to add gadgets to the Windows 8 desktop. The gadgets look like Windows Live tiles, and you can create a busy tiled interface that looks like your Start Screen, or you can place only the gadgets that are relevant to you.

4. Fences

Made by Stardock, Fences is a great tool for organising your desktop and beautifying it too. The app allows you to create “fences” - essentially transparent open folders - in which your icons are organised. You can form groups that you can browse through, such as a group of programs related to work, one group for browsing, one group for games. You can set the size of each fence, and browse through it, and you can hide the contents of the fences with a single click.

The best thing about Fences though is that it can automatically sort your icons into the fences. It sorts them based on their name, type or other criteria. So, for example, if you tend to save a lot of image files to the desktop to use for work, Fences could save them all in one fence automatically, so your screen remains clear.

The only downside to Fences is that unlike the other programs we’ve mentioned, it is not free. There is a free 30 day trial, but then you have to pay $9.99 (approximately Rs. 620) to keep using Fences.

5. RocketDock

RocketDock is an animated quick-launch bar for Windows 8 - it allows you to take the clutter off your screen, for easy access to your favourite programs and folders.

The dock is customisable and you can download skins to - for example - make the interface of your Windows 8 PC look like a Mac. You could use retro icons or minimalist ones which are also available to download, and the advantage of doing this is that it frees up space on your desktop, allowing you to fully customise its look with added widgets and backgrounds.

If you’re the sort who likes sharing your gaming moments without having to resort to videos or live-streams that demand a really good Internet connection, chances are you’re used to taking screenshots of your PC or PlayStation 4 games, or both.

Which is why it’s all the more perplexing that the Xbox One launched with a video capturing feature only, forsaking any form of taking screenshots. Unless of course you count poorly taken pictures of your TV screen while gaming or images via a capture card that usually costs upwards of Rs. 10,000. It’s something Microsoft is painfully aware of.

In a new video, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, Phil Spencer states that the ability to take screenshots will come soon.

“Screenshots are coming early this year. I know it’s been a question for quite awhile. We delivered themes. I think that a natural add-on to themes are screenshots. Giving people more ability to share their great gaming moments on the platform whether it’s just as a screenshot as their background or through many of the different social networks that we allow people to share their content through is a long term commitment that we have,” said Spencer.

While there is no set date for the feature, Spencer stated that there will be big news for the console as well as the company’s efforts on PC and mobile was revealed at Microsoft’s Windows 10 event on January 21.

 honda-city-vs-maruti-ciaz1.jpg

Honda City that had lost its top spot to Maruti Ciaz ?in the mid-sized sedan segment ?has regained its position in November 2014 sales. As against Maruti Ciaz’s 5,232 units in the month, Honda sold a total of 7,252 units recording a month-on-month rise of over 40 percent. In November 2014 Honda could manage to sell only 5,120 units due to production issues at its plants. To bring down its mid-sized sedan’s waiting period, Honda started one more shift at its Tapukara, Rajasthan plant. The Maruti Ciaz, on the other hand, saw a month-on-month fall of over 20 percent in its sales.

Ever since its launch in the Indian market, Honda City had been ruling the mid-sized sedan segment; for the first time it was outnumbered by any of its rival in October 2014. The City, currently, is the top-selling car for Honda in India followed by Mobilio and Amaze. Honda sold a total of 3,589 units of Mobilio and 3,310 units of Amaze in November 2014.

Speaking on the company’s sales performance, Mr. Jnaneswar Sen, Sr. Vice President - Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd. said, “We continue to witness strong demand for all our products across markets. We are aggressively expanding our dealer network to reach out to more customers and recently we reached the milestone of 200 dealer network in the country.”

Available in two engine options - 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel and 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol, the City is priced in the range of?Rs.?7.20 lakh -?Rs.?11.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Claimed to return an impressive mileage of 25.8K/l, the City is the second most fuel-efficient vehicle in the country after the Ciaz.
