Leaked: Google Glasses, Your Next Mobile Accessory

Google gadgetry to break out with cyborg-style eye glasses with Internet access and a video camera

Indeed, this is more than just a “rumour.”

Google employees have confirmed Google Goggles will run on Android; providing users with a search results screen in one of the two lenses; with the function to relay information from a mobile phone.

Calls can be made and users can download applications to improve usage.

Its silhouette will capture the blueprint the likes of a rugged-styled Oakley Thump.

Yes, its functionality offers more than style and show; Google goggles’ built-in small screen will most definitely not interfere with user vision.

Its low-resolution camera will have a built-in flash, making it easy for users to snap photos as well as retrieve information from surrounding buildings and scenery.

Sources have also stated that a simple tilt of the head can give the user the power to scroll up and down screen.

The price? Between $250 – $600 USD with an official release date later this year.

Unveiling the HTC One S

Confirmed: The HTC One S Packs One Hell of A Punch

The HTC One S comes out with a bang and leads the new flagship line from HTC. This rocket powered smartphone could leave many hardcore iPhoners awestruck with jealousy. Out-of-the-box and slim, the HTC One S measures a 7.95mm (.31 inches) thick, operating at blazing HSPA+ 42 data speeds.

And to add to the mix, you have a visually stunning a 4.3 inch qHD (960-by-540-pixel) Super AMOLED display; making video chatting and web browsing easier on the eyes.

Based on Cellular Firm sources, the phone will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), which is huge and could serve as the deal breaker for today’s already high-paced market.

It will also feature HTC Sense 4.0, a custom user interface overlay and sync service, specifically designed for integration with the equipped security service of ICS. It will also vastly improve on Android’s Microsoft Exchange integration; adding a new task sync feature for smoother operation.

For those multi-media heads and avid photographers, one of the best features of the HTC One S is the built-in high flying camera. Unheard of on a smartphone, the 8-megapixel sensor introduces a whole lot of f-stop, opening up at f 2.0 for increased low light image quality. Add an image processing chip to boot, dedicated to image stabilization (IS) and you got yourself one serious contender. Plenty to keep any smartphone photographer giddy for the next click.

The camera also delivers a 1080p high-definition video capability at a blazing 60 frames per second giving you the freedom of slow-motion playback crucial for those memorable moments with friends and family.

If you’re a music fanatic, the HTC One S comes loaded with Google Music along with latest version of Beats Audio; integrating sound seamlessly while gaming or watching movies.

The specs list remains hush-hush, but Cellular Firm confirms a speedy 1.5GHz, and dual-core Qualcomm Snapdrago S4 processor.

Release date set for as early as Spring, heads up Apple, this one’s a douzy.

Cell Phone Accessory of the Day: SwitchEasy Eclipse for iPhone 4/4S

Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s about that time for Cell Phone Accessory Friday!

Today, our gaze moves to the SwitchEasy Eclipse one of the top smartphone protectors for its affordability. Essential for the low-maintenance user, it’s reliability trumps all competitors. The iPhone 4/4s cover is a $20 accessory made out of a copulation between hard and soft plastic.

Along with the Eclipse, the box includes:

-2 anti-static screen guards
-1 microfiber wipe
-1 squeegee screen guard applicator
-2 power jack connector protectors
-1 video dock stand

The Eclipse’s scratch resistant hard plastic cover allows you to effortlessly slide your mobile in and out of pockets. While the soft plastic on the left side panel gives you a nice rubber grip, you’ll have zero problems worrying about clumsy fumbles.

But it gets better. The improved textured button knobs make it easy to help you distinguish which to buttons to press, and its overall silhouette is far from bulky: the epitome of sleekness. Its casing also allows you to utilize all of your camera, microphone, speaker, ringer switch, and home and sleep/wake button features.

However it isn’t as perfect as one may believe. It lacks of rubber lining within the hard plastic shell. Without a lining, dropping your iPhone is more dangerous than it should be.

Despite the limitations, this is a good buy. If you want a sleek cover at a good price, get the SwitchEasy Eclipse!

Break out the champagne!

Nokia releases amazing Q4-results, winning the bragging rights as the world’s biggest window phone vendor. Of course, their partnership with Microsoft may be the sole reason the Finnish company has emerged as the world’s number one Windows Phone vendor in the world.

According to research firm, Strategy Analytics, Nokia has shipped 900, 000 Windows Phones, Nokia overtook HTC and others, gobbling up 33 percent of the market pie.

In comparison to iPhone with sales of 37-million in Q4, Windows numbers are smaller in scale but have risen at 2.7 million units, a 36 percent increase from Q3.

However, Nokia has only begun to focus of the US market, as initially, the European and Asian countries were targeted.

Strategy Analytics states that Nokia’s expansion of Windows 7 latest models like the Lumia 800 were the reason for the companies increased popularity.

Nokia is expected to launch at least one Windows Phone at the Mobile World Congress next week. As Nokia’s partnership has turned one, Nokia needs to raise the bar to be at the level competitor for the iPhone.

Belkin Grip Edge iPhone 4 Black Pearl Case Review

Hello everyone

Belkin is mostly known for all the different products it manufactures for Apple products including chargers, cables, network accessories and many more. But of recent, Belkin is manufacturing different types of iPhone 4 cases. The Grip Edge – Black Pearl is one of them. I recommend this case for iPhone 4 users who prefers both style and grip for their phone case. Because for the first time Belkin introduced both of these factors in one case and that is the Grip Edge series.

Belkin Grip Edge (F8Z639tt154) for iPhone 4 - Black Pearl

Product Description

The Grip Edge case by Belkin is made out of two different materials. The main protection layer is made of hard plastic with a smooth rubberized feel to it which protects your iPhone 4 from bumps and scratches. And then there is the luxurious leather coating put at the back of the case for better grip and shock absorption. The leather coating also works as a cushion to protect your phone from bumps and scratches. Right now we are asking for only $29.99 for this beautiful mixture of luxury, style and grip for your new Apple iPhone 4 case.The case comes in original manufacturer box and comes with a 1 year manufacturer warranty, which means anything happens within the first year of usage after opening the box, the fixation is covered by the manufacturer.

Pros:

  • Smooth edge easily slides into your pocket or purse.
  • Luxurious leather back
  • Grippable for quick access
  • Durable, scratch resistant and shock absorbent
  • Padded exterior protects from bumps and drops

Cons

  • Limited edition
  • Protective but no ultimate protection

Last words…

So after this discussion, I would rate this case a 4 out of 5 for its durability, shock absorbency, scratch resistance, style, looks, design and collection.

Griffin Explorer Super Duty iPhone 4 Case (GB02338/GB02341) Review

Happy Tuesday Everyone

How are you all doing? Well if you are in Ontario, probably the rain has made the day quite sleepy and lazy. Anyways, jokes apart, in today’s edition I would like to do a review on the Griffin Explorer Super-Duty iPhone 4 Case as requested by some of our well wishers. Griffin Technology has introduced the Explorer series after bringing the Survivor series in the market. Survivor series was the extreme duty case, which was loved by the users but they were hoping for something that would be a little less bulkier for their iPhone 4. And thankfully Griffin came up with the Explorer series cases for Apple iPhone 4.

Description

The Explorer series are extended-duty cases which give enhanced structural protection without adding the military spec super protection that was in the Survivor series, which means less bulk to your iPhone 4. This case basically comes with a two layer protection. The first layer is made up of durable, flexible silicone jacket to protect your phone from scratches and shocks. And the second layer which is coated over the first is made up of shatter-resistant polycarbonate exoskeleton for structural strength. That protects your phone from even fall from a higher distance and heavy bumps. Port plugs have rubber tuck ins to protect your dock connector, camera lens, audio jack and speaker openings from dust and dirt. So basically Explorer series case for iPhone 4 by Griffin Technology provides ultra protection to your iPhone 4 without bulking it up as much as the Survivor series cases. We currently have two different colors in stock: Pink and Black.

  • Limited variations
