Google Nexus 5 Might Put Apple iPhone 6 To Sleep Even Before It Emerges To Life

Artists conceptualize images even before the canvas arrives. Same for smartphone enthusiasts. When the spaces and allied renditions are ready, why not take a shot at fixing the popularity counters for both of these. The race for glory begins!

The Apple iPhone 6 is probably set to be Apple’s first foray into the phablet arena and the iPhone 6 seems akin to a gladiator in its avatar. Given that its predecessors were not as good as we anticipated, this time the makers will tighten its belt well. With Apple promising to sow seeds that could lead to a juicier iPhone, let us wait and watch.

The Nexus in its LG avatar was worth a date or tow but this has only catalyzed our appetite to see more of romance with the Google Nexus 5. With a better camera as compared to any of the Nexus elder siblings, this Android-backed device could steal the show on arrival.  With a tradition of its big brother beating the iPhone 5 to bite dust, the Nexus might be the next big thing.… Read the rest

Google Nexus 6 and Nexus X Rumors Fuelling Renditions Too Many—Google Gains A Godly Garb In The Game

Peace ho! It is time for tales of Google God. This resonates with the buzz that the Nexus 5 is already making. When else would you conjure images of something yet to be made but on heavenly ground? Move from the Nexus 5, we have studied possibilities of what the Google Nexus 6 and the Nexus X tab might look like.

The Nexus X will come in an envelope avatar, they say. Sounds Greek? For me it is. Jibes apart, the smartphone packs in a unique ‘X Envelope’ concept that might come with a backside in edgy avatar.

Will this make the grip Nexus 6 offers re-define sleek? Too early to decide! Powered by Android 6.0 Milkshake, the device displays gall aplenty. Add to this, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, near field communications, wireless charging, 4.6-inch 320ppi (pixels per inch) 1280 x 768 flexible IPS) OLED display and 10-MP clicker on the rear—Nexus might just be next to heaven for smartphone worshippers.

Now from phone to tablet, the seduction gets stronger. The Nexus X tablet might boast a 10-inch width and might come with a grip that could never prompt users to let it go. With IR spatial tracking, navigational touch stripe, a stylish stylus, LED stripe, e-paper toolbar and Android buttons, the tablets appears too much of a bomb.

Microsoft Matches Apple iPad Mini and Google Nexus Footprints– Is A Surface Tot In Making?

Microsoft almost  caved in with Samsung’s reign on phablet ground. Across geographies, geeks and smartphone enthusiasts await Microsoft to offer novice ranges again but the last time it answered prayers was in October 2012.

Now here is buzz that whets our appetite once again– the giants have supposedly geared up to unleash a 7-incher on the block this year. After the Surface wooed us fairly well, we expect that the 7-inch hunky might make us go on knees!

Now before we move on to imagining the next avatars of Surface, here’s some  more food for thought—Is Microsoft trekking along Apple and Google’s route with this 7-inch road map in mind?

Google Nexus 7 and Apple iPad Mini did wonderfully well in compact tablet kingdom last year and this is well on the path to pick up further this year. Looking back at the earlier era when all I had in my room was a Microsoft PC, the company has prowess enough to arrest disappointment even with this fresh foray.

Initial roadblocks do occur don’t they? However, the company itself smashed chances of stupendous success by tagging high prices onto Surface Pro and Surface RT.  This time, Microsoft might just keep this in mind and drop the price counters for its latest baby in making.

Google Goofs Up Its Nexus 10 Gimmick—Too Much To Give, Too Less To See

Emotions do work up excitement. Marketing through mass media indeed appeals to user emotions to excite them to grab a product. This is perhaps the bottom-line that Google believes with its vehement Nexus 10 advertisement campaign. However, all said and done, does the advert work up reasons why it could be better than Samsung Galaxy series and Apple’s iPads? The answer lies in- No!

Though we see a lot of touching, caressing and the like on the Nexus screen, would a newbie gauge the real meaning? How could you understand that Google focuses on the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean in the tablet?

The reference to Google play Books, Google+ and Magazine too remains undermined. We saw the hangouts, the video conference possibilities on the Nexus via the advert. Nevertheless, how could Google forget to highlight that the tablet supports 10 video feeds at once! How would we know until told?

The photo we see on the advert is of Alvin but do users understand that the makers point to its high-resolution spec? No!

The advertisement works up our emotion but does not excite us to go grab the Nexus 10. A marketing gimmick that has gone slightly wrong, we believe. Get going Google, what’s wrong?… Read the rest
