While we had been eagerly awaiting the release of the newest titan on the block-Google Nexus 10 2, our prayers have finally been answered. With rumors, rife about the latest Nexus baby to be buffed up with a stronger processor and prepped with Android4.4 KitKat OS, we wonder if Apple iPad Air is set to bite some dust.
Here is an eye-to-eye face off between the apple iPad Air launched recently and the soon-to-arrive Google Nexus 10 2.
Processor – Apple iPad Air comes powered with a 64-bit A7 processor. Google Nexus 10 2 is anticipated to house quad core Snapdragon 800 processor.
OS – Apple’s iPad Air packs in latest iOS 7 laced with oomph in the form of AirDrop and Control Centre. Of course, the Google Nexus darling would be a jet setter with Android 4.4.
Display – Apple iPad Air comes propped with a 9.7-inch Retina display. Meanwhile, we hear that Google Nexus 10 2 would come in a magnanimous 10-inch screen size.
Storage – iPad Air comes in 16, 32, 64 and 128 GB variants. Meanwhile Google Nexus 10 2 would arrive 16, 32 and 64 storage variants and with expandable memory.
Shutter – The iPad Air comes with 5-megapixel rear cam and a 1.2 megapixel front clicker. The Google wonder is expected to feature a 5-megapixel back clicker and 1.9 megapixel front shutter.
The HTC One seems to have met its match with the Google and LG offerinG, Nexus 5. Both devices have some pretty impressive features despite the big gap in the release dates. Take a quick look:
Design: The HTC One has a metal exterior with two speakers at the bottom and the top of the phone. This makes the experience more enjoyable when you flip your phone horizontally when viewing images on full screen. The metal body makes this phone a solid one. The Nexus 5 has a black exterior that lacks flare.
Processor: The Nexus 5 is powered with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip while the HTC darling comes with the 600 chip. Both have 2 GB RAM but the Nexus has an advantage in terms of processor speed. This makes it the fastest device available in the market.
Display: The HTC One wins this round as it has 1920×1080 pixels encased in a 4.7 inch screen. Being an LCD screen and offers better display. The Nexus has a 4.95 inch display with the same resolution of 445 ppi. Both devices offer a stunning display but the HTC One is a better option if you are looking for a good display.
Apple has been biting too much dust owing to the rise of the Korean giant. Finally now, we landed on an image that reveals the eye ID retina scanner on the upcoming Apple iPhone 6. Wonder what this has got to do with Samsung? Well, the first instance of the retina scanner came in the form of a rumored spec on the yet-to-release Samsung Galaxy S5.
A latest render for the Apple iPhone 6 from SET Solution reveals that the retina scanner has replaced the fingerprint scanner spec that we saw in Apple iPhone 5s.
With such a security spec in air, the iPhone 6 is set to be one of the most secure phones the world has ever seen!
While Apple might be busy in patenting the technology, we expect the price for the upcoming iPhone to shoot up too.
Another awesome modification that the 6th baby from Apple has under its hood is a small home button. Thus, the display size will appear magnanimous and come edge-to-edge.
A buffed up speaker spec and two powerful shutters are the other wow stuff that Apple might pack into its latest wonder.

If you have been looking to turn into a loyal Apple fan, then the iPad Air, Macbook Pro and the Macbook Air are three exciting devices you can choose from. When the Macbook Air was first launched, it created a revolution of sorts in the laptop market. It was so thin that it could easily fit inside an envelope. Six years ahead, the tech giant came up with something almost similar in its tablet portfolio and introduced the iPad Air. As the name implies, the Air features a refurbished design which knocks off nearly heaf a pound of its weight, apart from a couple of millimeters in thickness and a large chunk of the bezel area. However, the reduction in weight does not translate into a smaller screen. The new iPad Air features 9.7-inch Retina display that was the USP of the earlier two iPads. Apple has also made the iPad Air even more powerful, owing to the A7 chip that provides immense power to the iPhone 5S.
The Macbook Pro 13-inch is powered by Intel’s Haswell-based i5 Core processor to deliver enough power that lasts for nearly 12 hours with continuous use. The MacBook Pro weights faintly more than three pounds and still processes byte-intensive tasks and graphics quickly and with ease.
Apple Macbook Air created a new yardstick for light and thin laptops. In the year 2011, it was upgraded with a Intel Core chips which significantly boosted the performance to complement the sleek build and design. The latest 13-inch MacBook Air model looks the same as the 2011 edition. The new model features dual microphones seen in the left side of the device.
The buzz around the arrival of the Apple iPhone 6 is getting stronger by the day. While we have been hearing rumors galore about the iPhone 6 specs and its release, here is some news that could surprise you. We expect the 6th Apple kid to arrive coming June next year.
The Cupertino giant has made it a trend to release an iPhone each year and boost the newbie model with new specs in the year following release. Going by this, the iPhone 6 is an all-new package– not just meatier but also sexier!
However, Apple insiders reveal that the makers are trying to figure out the best way between consumer oriented and professionally allied solutions with the iPhone 6. This could push the iPhone 6 release to as late as September 2014.
With the WWDC coming up in the summer of 2014, we even here that, the release date could be punched in with this event. With the drool-worthy features and never before seen specs that the Apple iPhone might have, we are ready to wait even as long as September 2014.
Well the wait for the Google Nexus 10 is getting amazingly long now. Just when we convinced ourselves that the Nexus 10 is being scrapped in favor of a Google Nexus 8 or 9-inch tab, here is news that has ruffled us up again. We now hear that the Nexus 10 2 is indeed set to debut at the Mobile World Congress 2014.
A tweet leak of the supposed Nexus 10 2 has gone viral and has pointed to buzz that it is ASUS that is behind its making. In fact, this @evleaks leak might be genuine given that the source has pointed to accurate leaks previously.
However, we are skeptical since ASUS and Google had more than a tiff over producing the Nexus 7 sometime back. If the second generation Nexus 10 actually comes into the mortal world, here is what it could be packed with:
Tegra 4 chip processor
2560 x 1600 resolution
Adreno 330 GPU
Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset
8 megapixel shutter
It will run on the latest KitKat 4.4 OS while being available in both 32 GB and 16 GB variants.
With the 2014 MWC set to take place in Barcelona in February, we expect that Google will utilize the run up to the event to the fullest.
Oh what’s more is that Google is planning a Nexus TV too. Akin to a set top box—yes– minus any broadcast responsibilities—this is mere buzz though and only February will tune us into the real picture.
While we have been bathing in the rumors of the Apple iPhone 6 and the Google Nexus 10, here comes a swashing leak from Samsung. Yes, a video purported to be that of the Samsung Galaxy S5 has gone viral. And what’s even more surprising is that it might just release TODAY!
From what we saw in the video, the (supposed) Galaxy S5 comes in a metallic exterior. We guess Samsung has dumped the plastic avatar with the Galaxy S5. However, on sniffing deeper, we realized that the device could be available in Taiwan since the originating source of the video happens to be Samsung Taiwan. And yes- the rumors S5 comes christened as Samsung Galaxy J here.
Industry insiders say that this is not the real Samsung Galaxy S5 but an independent smartphone called the Samsung Galaxy J. it comes with a mesmerizing HD Super AMOLED display and is beefed up with 2.3GHz quad core Snapdragon processor. However, Android Jelly Bean will feed life into its platform instead of the latest 4.4 KitKat.
Its other important features include:
2.3GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974)
2.1 MP main shutter
3 GB RAM
On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to feature:
While we are going mad over when the Apple iPhone 6 could step into our mortal world, Apple is engaged in patenting innovations we never thought.
Having brought you news about the wrap-screen and the plenoptic shutter, we have now sniffed news about more exclusivity of the Apple phablet!
With the face recognition spec that is clearly inspired from the Samsung Galaxy Lineup, Apple has sealed the U.S. Patent No. 8,600,120.
However, further scoop on this comes with the news that this feature will enable users to unlock apps on the iPhone 6 as well as work without interference of the background. This is a swing up from Samsung’s face recognition spec, we bet.
While the plenoptic lens is old news, the fresh baked sniff here is that the camera will enable users to refocus on the images that already have been captured. We smell a con from the Lytro Light Field shutter.
While the iPhone 6 is touted as the next biggie flagship device from the giants, we wait to see how much these patents could aid in device sales. Will Apple finally snub Samsung off?… Read the rest
Wo Ho! The iPhone 6 is possibly in the making and come New Year we might be able to lay hands on the new kid from the iPhone block. Industry insiders predict a mid-2014 release for the iPhone 6. Wonder what could be in store for this new baby?
A track pad- Yes, you heard it right. The Apple iPhone 6 is rumored to come with home button track-pad besides having a full-touch ID display. While BlackBerry is lying dormant having used the track pad feature ages back, this is something completely new to Apple.
A buffed up display- The iPhone 6 may have taken inspiration from the pixilated clarity of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the LG Optimus G Pro. We hear that the iPhone 6 will come with a large retina display. As for the size, Apple still goes the middle way and is testing a 5.5 or a 4.7- incher.
As for the famed Gorilla Glass, this will see replacement with Sapphire-coating—a scratchproof warranty in the making!
While we have heard rumors of a wrap-around screen on the Apple models previously, these failed to come true. This time, however, the rumor has gained ground and we could see a wrap around screen puffed up with improvised Prime Sense for Siri.
Add to this, a plenoptic shutter and an enhanced battery life and we actually are salivating to flaunt the iPhone 6.
Perhaps, Apple is so besotted with Samsung’s popular that it plans to bring in a facial recognition spec akin to the Samsung Galaxy line up. We love the iPhone and await the 6 prodigy but is Apple following Samsung’s footsteps to stay afloat?
