Here are some pictures and catch the supposed HTC Sense 5.0 M7 in

HTC is in a rather delicate after suffering several months of disappointing financial results. Since the end of the year, the Taiwanese renews its upsetting codes. Thus the first two Windows Phone 8 have unexpected design, being both very fine, with some usual colors and a very nice texture to the touch.

Where HTC is not a good student in terms of communication to the public, the 8X is a phone "signature" of Microsoft. Specifically, it is a little closer Nexus model, that is to say that the HTC product, but Microsoft does the communication component. In addition, important information: the Taiwanese company has decided to separate from the advertising agency Mother, who had achieved such publicity HTC One X with the parachute. There are hopeful that HTC has improved on this plan in 2013.

Even if the manufacturer has made ​​its first steps in Windows Phone 8, do not forget Android, thanks to Butterfly J / DROID DNA .... With its 5-inch screen and 1080p, it has the privilege of being the first model with its characteristics, where a very favorable reception from the public. Unfortunately, this phone should not go out as such in Europe. This will quickly stop as competition arrives especially with the Sony Xperia Z.

Instead, we have the M7 , which is crucial for the future of the brand. Android Police got photos and even screenshots of this model. The site assures us have concrete information, but we prefer to remain cautious, as many Photoshopeurs wander on the global Internet.

This famous M7 does not like its rivals because it embark a screen of 4.7 inches , where is the fashion now to 5 inches or more. This should allow him to have a pixel density impressive (but useless?) Of 468 ppi. To provide the best user experience, it takes heavy features and HTC has understood: a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.7 GHz, 2 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Only downside, the battery would have a capacity of 2300mAh rather poor. This could play on autonomy One major problem on X, unless the manufacturer so his hat optimization "with onions."

Of the two pictures, we see that on the front, the design is very classic with sensor buttons. The same problem as the previous generation will arise: the Menu button that appears on non-optimized applications, will it be directly on the screen or via a long rest on a touch sensitive? In one case as in the other, we see here the limits of touch-sensitive, unlike the touch keys displayed directly on the screen. Moreover, the fact of having tactile keys on the 5-inch touch-sensitive or on the 4.7 inch should not mean major differences, because the dimensions should be very close.

On the back, it is exactly the same texture as the HTC 8X, which is similar to that of the BlackBerry PlayBook, which has the merit of not slipping and not be susceptible to fingerprints. Moreover, the same format seems to have been selected: thinner edges to accentuate finesse. We then have the same impression of the spine center. Beats Audio logo tells us that technology is always present, but should be switched off at any time for those who do not like the bass.

For what is HTC Sense, significant changes were made following a stagnation for several versions now, so that Android has evolved in the right direction. Now the icons are more colorful and flat. In addition, the famous weather widget is completely revised, by abandoning its famous clock made for a minimalist.

Knowing that we are approaching fast the exhibition in Barcelona, ​​Mobile World Congress, it seems likely that this phone is announced at that time. Its trade name is he the HTC M7? Mystery ...

Goophone the i5 is finally available for sale in China ...

Before the release of the iPhone 5, a Chinese manufacturer GooPhoone presented its GooPhone i5, which incorporated the appearance of the Apple device. At the time, the design of the Apple device was known GooPhone and filed a patent on the shape of the phone. But since most new, until now! GooPhone the i5 is finally available in his country of origin: China.

The Android smartphone comes out with a few months delay. Google did not actually enjoyed using HoneyComb on the back of the phone and the manufacturer had to change somewhat. In any case, its shape similar to that of the iPhone is the only phone business asset, which does not really enticing features.

Goophone the i5 has a 4-inch qHD screen with a definition of 540x960 pixels. It is equipped with a dual-core processor MAT6577 ARMv7 1 GHz and a GB of RAM. Besides this, the camera has a Goophone 8 megapixel and 16 or 32 GB of storage. Note the presence of a port Lightning, but this time pin 8.

A smartphone collector, certainly.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 soon

Samsung, as we know, has a catalog very complete and varied. The manufacturer clearly trying to be present on all fronts and has thus learn through Sam Mobile that it could soon raise the veil on a new range of touch tablets: the Galaxy Tab 3. A range that is apparently composed of three models since it would issue a three Galaxy Tab 7.0, Galaxy Tab 3 of 10.1 and a Galaxy Tab 3 mystery that we do not know much yet. And if you want to know more, know that talking about now!

Certainly, these next few weeks are likely to be very busy with Samsung and this is normal since the South Korean manufacturer should grant us a number of new mobile terminals among which we can mention the S4 Galaxy , the Galaxy Tab 8.0 The Galaxy Pocket Plus and a lot of other nice things. And if we believe this new rumor, then it would also be three new tablets that could land soon: Galaxy Tab 3.

As explained a little earlier, they would be broken down into three models. It would obviously matter a 7-inch slate and a 10.1-inch slate, but Samsung could also grant us a third tablet that also benefit a 10.1 inch screen. Bizarre, obviously. If Samsung has never been afraid to overload the market, the manufacturer did not used to launch two identical terminals in a single line. Would it be a new Nexus 10? Possible, but it will take to get to the bottom.

Finally, we can also add that the new Galaxy Tab 3 should be divided into several models varying according to their storage capacity (16 GB or 32 GB) and their connectivity (3G or not), all for an arrival on the market the first quarter of 2013.

Google Handwrite: improving handwriting recognition

It is this that Fred was you had a brand new feature on the mobile version of Google, a very interesting feature known as Google Handwrite and which therefore, as its name suggests, drawing, one after the other characters in the Keyword Search without using the usual keyboard. We will not how to activate because everything has already been well described in the previous article that I just mentioned. However, we will discuss in this article the news that Google has made ​​on Handwrite, novelties not necessarily impressive but no less interesting.

History but start slowly, it will probably evoke a long-awaited improvement in Asia but also probably very few among us so that we could previously draw a Chinese character at a time, it is now possible to align as you would on paper (if you know how to write Chinese course ...).

If you have already tried Google Handwrite, you may be able to realize a small problem: the recognition of characters drawn is not yet perfect and it is common for the search engine to confuse letters that are close graphically. To counter this, suggestions will be offered over the space bar, suggestions based on your drawing and list the different possibilities that can represent what you meant.

Another issue raised with Google Handwrite is the size of our screens: align the letters, but it's nice to extensive research style "naked pictures of Frederick Pereira", it gets stuck. And that is why it is now possible to write the letters on each other: visually, we end up with a big block indecipherable but the fact remains that the search giant is doing to read it.

Samsung Galaxy Camera: new ways of shooting!

The Samsung Galaxy Camera is really not a camera like the others. If positioned in the area of compact digital cameras, it has all-of-even had the audacity to build on Android to differentiate themselves from their competitors. And if we add to this the fact that it includes both a WiFi chip and a 3G chip, it is understandable why it has caused much ink. Yes, and if you have recently cracked a Galaxy Camera, then know that Samsung will soon update its firmware with a whole bunch of new very nice.

From the information available, this update is not yet deployed but it should arrive soon on the Galaxy Camera. What can specify is that it is possible to recover now the ROM that goes through Odin. That said, be aware that the procedure is not without risk and therefore better worth knowing what you are doing before you start. If anyone has more info on the subject, I'm interested.

And if not, what are the improvements made ​​by this update? They are quite numerous and are finally both the platform itself and the dedicated application for recording photos and videos. The pretty cool thing is that Samsung has introduced new ways to help you take very nice pictures without the need for you to bother with the camera settings.

Here is a list of these features:
  • New way of shooting "snow" to sublimate images taken in the snow, and it is frankly circumstances.
  • New way of shooting "food" to improve all the incredible dishes that you do on the weekend and you never fail to share with millions of followers.
  • New shooting mode "Party / Indoor" to immortalize your Skins Party with a superb rendering without blurring behind.
  • New way of shooting "Dawn" to take pretty pictures like the dawn comes on the horizon, and so when you suddenly decide to get up early in the morning.
  • Integration of a new feature to take control of the Galaxy Camera Remote with another smartphone or other touch pad.
  • Improving the fluidity of the platform, including the intelligent mode and expert mode.

Galaxy S4: Characteristics and a wireless charging?

The S4 Galaxy should disclose in a few weeks at the Mobile World Congress 2013. The first features the Smartphone would have appeared on the Web. Samsung will also have to provide a system of wireless charging.

Galaxy S4 will be the successor to the Galaxy S3 has returned a success since its release in May. Samsung is going to try to do better by offering a Smartphone to the expectations of consumers. All eyes are turned to the new Korean mobile. SamMobile , which is always very knowledgeable about the products, Samsung has once again struck in discovering possible features of the Galaxy S4. The terminal would have made ​​an appearance on a site benchmarks. Some information has been collected by the site. The smartphone is expected to enter the phone market in the first half of 2013. It would have Exynos processor clocked at 1.8 GHz 5 with 8 cores and 2 GB of RAM.

A Wireless Charging System

Galaxy S4 propose a Super AMOLED 4.99 inch Full HD with a density of 440ppi. Operate the terminal with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Samsung could offer a 13 megapixel sensor capable of performing full HD video in 1080p 30FPS. A 2 megapixel front camera could offer HD video in 720p.

Along with this information, Samsung would have the opportunity to propose a wireless charging system for S4 Galaxy. This is not the same site that reveals the information, but the Korean site DDaily. Customers would get this feature through an option. The terminal may be provided with a cover and a special charging station specific. The website does not give more information about the technology. Samsung would have thought to choose a technique of inductive coupling resonance. You could recharge your smartphone without touch up to 2 meters. This information is rumors since the Korean did not confirm the presence or characteristics of the system load. We must wait the Mobile World Congress to learn a little more about what Galaxy S4.

PS4: The controller will have a touchscreen LCD?

The PS4 could put an end to the lever that players know since Sony would bring a new design. Since 1997, the DualShock had not been altered, but the manufacturer has redesigned the entire design.

The PS4 should offer a whole new controller since the site CVG indicates that it may be equipped with an LCD touch screen and biometric sensors. The experience offered by the Sony console would be very different from previous versions. Since 1997, the DualShock suffered no real change. The PS Move has brought a few new, but the concept should be strengthened for the next generation. This accessory provides interaction between the player and the console but Sony wants to go further by using the concept of the PS Vita. Thus, the new controller could be closer to the experience offered by the handheld . With the introduction of biometric sensors, at the grip, the gameplay could be largely modified. This information should be taken with a grain of salt since Sony has refused to comment on the possibility.

The Abandonment of the DualShock?

The PS4 whose code name is Orbis should make its appearance in a few weeks. Players are waiting impatiently the new generation that will match up against the new Xbox. The site states that the PS3 controllers would be compatible with the new system, but they are used as secondary controllers. For the moment, it is impossible to have a picture of this new controller or PS4 since development is a matter well guarded. The price could also pose some problems to the portfolio as a controller with a touch screen and biometric sensors should have a fairly high rate.

For the first time since 1997, the controller of the PlayStation could be completely changed. Sony would have the intention to break with the design of the famous DualShock. At the launch of the PS3, rumors also indicated that the controller would suffer a complete overhaul of the design, the final Sony remained very close to the old controller. It is therefore advisable to take all this information with a grain of salt.

Jailbreak iOS 6: 2 hackers come together and progress

The jailbreak of iOS 6 should soon be available to the public. Two hackers, Planetbeing and pod2g have joined forces to advance more quickly. They communicate on the network Twitter and share their discovery.

The jailbreak of iOS 6 is widely expected by the owners of Apple products. After the disappointment of the end of 2012, the future of software is pretty nice. Planetbeing had buzz when shared success. Indeed, he could get a version of the jailbreak untethered on the iPhone 5 . The hacker did not want to offer the software because Apple should share an update of iOS (6.1) in a few weeks, and the rumored Apple could deploy as early as February. The jailbreak would have the opportunity to be released on the web a few days after iOS 6.1. Attempt to move faster Planetbeing decided to partner with the French famous hacker on his Twitter account, he stated "I made ​​good progress today with @ pod2g. I think I'll reward myself with a nap."

Two New Vulnerabilities

Pod2g had also indicated on the microblogging network "Oh Yes! 2 new holes in one day, luck is with us." Untethered jailbreak version is on the right track, but the two hackers face against a small time. It is once again on Twitter that pod2g announced his problem "We still lack a code for an initial public jailbreak." Copying is not yet perfect, because both authors want to propose a version hack perfect both functional and mostly stable. In all cases, the jailbreak will not be released before updating to iOS 6.1. Planetbeing took several months to exploit loopholes, if it reveals the fruits of his labor now, Apple could fill gaps and nullify its concept.

The jailbreak of iOS 6 is possible, but it may take a little time and Pod2g Planetbeing. Deployed when Apple will update 6.1, owners of Apple devices stamped may have good news.

Introducing the HTC M7

Nearly a month before the MWC 2013, which should lead to the unveiling of the future high-end smartphone from HTC, here is the picture most likely  this phone  so far.

It is the site HTCSource very aware of the news that HTC has managed to get their hands on this shot after much research and herrings.

At first glance, nothing revolutionary design of the M7. It is rather a continuation of Windows Phones from HTC, HTC and more particularly 8X. It seems that the Taiwanese manufacturer wishes to gradually unify the design of its terminals, regardless of OS.

Listed specifications, future features HTC M7 should be as follows:
  • LCD Full HD 1080p 4.7
  • Pixel density of 468
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 1.7 GHz quad-core
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 32GB of internal memory
  • A battery of 2300mAh
  • APN 13Mpix and front camera
  • Release Date: First Quarter 2013 (?)

Samsung Galaxy Fonblet a Galaxy Player with option 'telephone'?

We finished with the decidedly more rumors about the upcoming Samsung mobile terminals, and today is the Galaxy Fonblet entering the parade.

Even bigger than the Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Fonblet would direct a deviation Galaxy Player 5.8 inch with option "telephone" to include Android Jelly Bean.

With this Fonblet Galaxy, we can already begin to assume that the technical characteristics will be adopted around the Galaxy Player 5.8 that offers a wide touchscreen LPS (IPS made ​​in Samsung) 5.8-inch qHD resolution of (540 x 960 pixels) a dual-core architecture clocked at 1 GHz, 1 GB of memory (RAM), a VGA front camera, a camera picture of 3 megapixels, an FM tuner, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, WiFi and 3G compatibility.

Always based on the Galaxy Player 5.8, there also meets a battery of 2500 mAh, 16 or 32 GB of internal memory with a micro SD slot. According to the rumor, the Galaxy Fonblet run under Android Jelly Bean (4.1.2 or 4.2.1) to its output. We know perhaps more at the Mobile World Congress which will begin as scheduled on February 25 in Barcelona.

Google TV emulator now supports Windows, Mac OS X and Linux

The Google TV struggling to unite, has only a catalog of applications  very thin. Things should change, because the development has been greatly facilitated.

The Google TV is not a new project at Google, since the first products were released in October 2010 with two major manufacturers: Logitech and Sony. Unfortunately face a high price, performance, halftone, the public has not answered this. It must be said that the platform used only for Intel processor family, where Android was exclusively oriented ARM on smartphones and tablets.

At the Google I / O 2011, a reboot was held to launch the second generation of Google TV integrating the Play Store. Now based on Android 3.1 and ARM processors, the interface has been completely redesigned and partners are multiplied: LG, Vizio, Hisense and still Sony. In addition, Japanese is the first to have taken the plunge and propose its box  NSZ-GS7 Europe. Unfortunately the record is far from convincing, the fault system is still too young, consisting of some applications and multimedia support very light. A proof of this failure: the French company Archos prefers to use an interface pad for his TV Connect.

At CES 2013, we got to the third generation of Google TV. Changes are much less numerous, but the companies believe with headlining LG will leave the United States no less than seven televisions. Other partners are added, including Asus, Netgear or TCL. Among the new software, there is a new launcher, an impressive voice recognition  that allows you to search a video, open an application, display a string or even be able to answer queries such as "film taking place in Las Vegas with burglary casinos." TV & Movies The application is now renamed PrimeTime and improves comfort for access to content. Finally the YouTube app has been updated and can play a video from his or her smartphone tablet, as does the Nexus Q (for the few owners of the unit).

Unfortunately despite the third generation of the catalog of applications is still thin and competing operating systems (Samsung Smart TV being the most important) arrive to do better. One of the causes of this failure comes from the tools available to developers. While it is very easy to use emulator for smartphones and tablets, Google TV required to have a computer with Linux KVM.

Good news because the Google TV Add-on API Level 13 comes out and finally offers extensive support for Windows, Mac OS X. Need for KVM, but only Intel hardware acceleration (also available on the Android emulator standard). If you have an AMD processor, you will unfortunately still limited to the old method. This new version includes bug fixes, but also browser based on Chrome.

You can then begin to develop your applications. Some things to consider: a Google TV is not touch screen uses a wide , has no sensors like the accelerometer and digital compass, includes neither a camera nor a GPS or Bluetooth, or a microphone.

But if you want to make an application "universal", that is to say compatible smartphones and tablets, you should place your layouts folder layout-large-NoTouch and resources in drawable-land-tvdpi (for 720p ) or drawable-land-xhdpi (for 1080p).

It remains only to let the developers take ownership of the platform and give the necessary elements for its success.

3D printing: Nokia provides files to mold his own shells for the 820

3D printing is beginning to invite in the giants of the computer industry and digital. The Finnish manufacturer Nokia innovates by providing files to "print" their own covers for the Nokia 820.

3D printing, hitherto rather reserved to warn and still relatively confidential begins to invite in the computer industry giants and digital.

Nokia, seeking innovative ideas and regaining its markets, has launched an initiative for its customers which could mark a turning point in the relationship that consumers have with products: the ability to make your own shell their mobile phone.

Reserved for the last time in Nokia 820 Windows Phone, this option is made possible by the free supply by the Finnish manufacturer of 3D files that hold all the specifications of the rear bodywork of the smartphone.

Then simply run software 3D printing and open the file compatible for printing it. As the back of the Nokia 820 is removable, it is possible to replace it with its own shell.

Customization and manufacturing outsourced

Attention, it is not a traditional protective shell that fits on one device but its original shell, which wraps around the phone. Therefore, as long as one knows manipulate 3D software and modify or add shapes to a file 3D graphics, then it is possible to customize the shape of your mobile. Nokia provides also about this in a wiki dedicated to various ideas, such as the integration of a belt clip or strap, or the integration of a bigger battery.

According to John Kneeland, Nokia & Developer Community Marketing Manager, based in Silicon Valley, "(Nokia) could sell a variety of phone models, templates, and entrepreneurs in the world could mount a local manufacturer of business phones designed specifically as needs of their community".

3D files are provided in different standards, with two rendering options in STL and STP. Gimmick or real innovation and business opportunity? Waiting to see if other manufacturers - and not just in the phone or infomatique - Nokia to follow suit.

Sony Unveils Tablet 10.1 "Tablet Xperia Z

Sony has made significant announcements at CES 2013 with the introduction of Xperia Z - a high-end smartphone very attractive, and continues its momentum by unveiling a tablet today ultra-thin 10.1-inch.

This new flagship product, called simply Xperia Tablet Z features a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 10.1 "display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 (with Bravia Mobile Technology Engine 2), a microSD slot, an NFC chip, a 8.1 megapixel camera and the Android operating system 4.1.

It is neither more nor less than the 10-inch tablet's smaller market with 6.9 mm of thickness, the iPad Mini by 7.2 mm and 8.9 mm by Nexus 10. Between addition, its weight is 495 grams and its characteristic is to be water resistant as dust.

This new tablet has been announced on the website of the Japanese firm so we know it will happen in the spring in Japan, but it is not known at the time of this writing whether it will land in France and with the same characteristics.

With the imminence of the Mobile World Congress, the must show dedicated to the mobile industry that will take place in Barcelona at the end of February, we should know more soon and you will of course know.
