Barnes & Noble's and Samsung introduced the Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 10:20 PM PDT

After rolling out the 7-inch Galaxy Tab 4 Nook earlier this year, Samsung and Barnes & Noble have announced that they're launching a larger variant based on the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab 4.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 10.1 features a 10.1 inch screen with resolution of 1280 x 800. That works out to a pixel density of 149ppi. Powering the slab is a quad-core 1.2GHz processor with the Adreno 305 GPU crunching graphics. 1.5GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. The 64GB capacity microSD slot offers additional memory for those who need it. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 3MP and 1.3MP, respectively, and a 6800mAh battery keeps the lights on.
The tablet is available from Barnes & Noble stores and online on the B&N and nook.com websites. The current $300 price is discounted from $350 and there's no indication how long that will last. I'm guessing a long while since the Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 currently runs around $230 at Amazon.com and you can always install the B&N app for free.

After it arrived to LG G Watch, Motorola also introduced the latest Android Wear update that brings GPS and offline music support. However, the update for the Moto 360 comes with other improvements too, such as improved notifications and battery life.

A new gesture now lets you see the full watch face without permanently dismissing a notification. Just touch the top of a notification and swipe down. You'll see the notification again when you have another high priority notification.
  • Mood Lighting - Moto 360 will adjust to the lighting of the room while charging, so that it isn't too bright or too dark.

Nikon D3200 Camera : Specs, Features and Overview

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 09:55 PM PDT

Pixel-count aside, the changes from the predecessor D3100 are subtle but, with 1080p30 video, a 920k dot LCD and the option to add an affordable Wi-Fi transmitter, there are clear benefits over the D3100's specification. As usual for Nikons at this level, the D3200 doesn't feature a built-in focus motor, and nor does it offer auto exposure bracketing. It also features a simplified version of the Active D-Lighting function that is now common across Nikon's DSLR range.

Samsung reveals a Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 09:40 PM PDT

Samsung and Verizon always seem to be cuddle buddies when it comes to developer editions of their phones. The two have once again come together to offer a developer edition of Samsung's latest flagship, with said flagship being the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The device won't be offered on-contract and presumably won't be available through Verizon Edge, so you'll have to fork over $660 if you want it.
The Note 4 Developer Edition is the same Galaxy Note 4 that you can buy right now, with the difference that it comes with an unlockable bootloader. The Developer Edition also has the advantage of being slightly cheaper than the Note 4 that Verizon is currently selling (for $699.99 off-contract).
Released this month in the US, as well as in lots of other markets, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is undoubtedly one of the best large-screen smartphones that you can buy this year.

Google Releases New Inbox App for iPhone and Android

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 09:00 PM PDT

Google has announced an app called 'Inbox', developed by the Gmail Team. It serves as your Gmail client but offers an experience nothing close to contemporary ones. Inbox is supposedly a more inherently-intelligent service that handles your emails as a service available on the Web (Chrome only), and as an app for iOS 7+ and Android 4.1+.
The new app, which is free and only works with Gmail accounts, will still always show you every single message sent your way. But it scans each email and surfaces what it deems to be the most important, need-to-know information.
Inbox not only bundles similar email like purchase receipts, bank statements, bills etc., but depending on how you treat different kinds of emails, the app will learn from the choices you make as well. This bundling will help users in quickly dismissing a bunch of emails they have already gone through, or do not want to go through at that moment.
Inbox focuses on key information in your emails as well, such as flight itineraries, event information, photos, documents etc. It will track this information and highlight it for you, and even offer to fill in more information to the original emails. For example, it can include the real-time status of your flight, or even package deliveries.
Reminders are now integrated in Inbox, so users can focus on prioritized tasks as well, or for that matter you can keep a better track of things from one centralized place. Emails and reminders can also be snoozed away, till a certain time, or you can add location based triggers as well for the snoozed emails and reminders.
Inbox by Gmail is an invite only service at the moment, so if you know someone who has an invite to spare, you're in luck. You can also email at inbox@google.com to sign up for an invitation.

Some Bank of America customers double-charged with Apple Pay

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 08:40 PM PDT

Some Bank of America customers have been double-charged for purchases made with Apple Pay.
About 1,000 Bank of America Corp. debit transactions on Apple Inc. New mobile-payment systems were mistakenly duplicated. However, in this case, it seems that Bank of America could be at fault, and the bank says that it is working on a fix.
The error was attributed to a processing mistake that occurred between the bank and at least one payments network, according to a person familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified because details of the malfunction aren't public.
Apple Pay utilizes a secure chip inside Apple's new iPhone 6 that enables the phone to emulate an NFC payment card. When the Apple Pay app is loaded with a customer's credit or debit card, payments can be made at NFC terminals by bringing the phone close to the terminal.
Apple Pay is compatible with existing NFC payment terminals, which can be found in around 200,000 shops and taxis across the U.S.

Archos 50 Diamond launching soon

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 08:20 PM PDT

French-based gadget maker Archos today announced a new, relatively high-end Smartphone called Archos 50 Diamond. This is the company's first handset to be powered by a 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor and Archos seems to be quite proud of it.
The Archos 50 Diamond comes with a 5-inch 1080p IPS touchscreen, a 16 MP rear camera with LED flash, and an 8 MP front snapper. Powering things up is a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 chipset with an octa-core CPU sporting four Cortex-A53 cores that can go up to 1.7 GHz and another four of those that are only clocked at 1 GHz.
The Archos 50 Diamond will be available starting early 2015. The Smartphone currently runs Android 4.4 KitKat, but we imagine that an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop will be available at some point.

Vodafone Smart 4 turbo Smartphone : Specs, Features and Overview

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 07:45 PM PDT

The 4.5-inch display has an 854x480-pixel resolution -- right at the bottom of what I'd expect to see, even on a budget phone. It results in a disappointing density of 217 pixels per inch.
Good to see that it's running the 4.4.2 KitKat version of Android, so at least Vodafone hasn't skimped on giving you the latest version of the operating system, though there's no indication of how soon it will receive the next update. 
The quad-core processor is clocked at 1.3GHz and backed by 1GB RAM. That's a bit of an advance on the basic version of the Smart 4 (dual core 1.2GHz and 512MB RAM, since you ask) but not a lot. It is fairly fast though, even if it doesn't have the fast-as-thought pace of the most powerful models.

TRIM and SCSI UNMAP support with major Windows OS versions help maintain consistent write performance, reduce flash deterioration, and most importantly, extend drive life expectancy. Not to mention an extensive set of S.M.A.R.T. attributes allow users to monitor the drive's health, allowing users to take preventative measures against possible data loss.
