Samsung Exynos 5250 running at 2GHz coming by Q2 next year


We’ve been dreaming about it, but not quite sure when we would see the first Android device clocked at 2GHz (officially of course). The Samsung Exynos chips running at 1.0GHz, 1.2GHz, and 1.5GHz have functioned amazingly well in their Galaxy S II line, and knowing we should see the 2.0GHz SoC in a future tablet is definitely good news. Samsung was very clear this SoC would be geared towards high-end tablets, but maybe we’ll find it in a few smartphones too.
At the rate Android and the overall technological world is progressing, it wouldn’t be so surprising to see 2.0GHz as the new “norm”. Either way, the chip is said to double the performance of the current Exynos 4212 and even offer 4X speedier graphical rendering.
The new chip will also support displays up to a 2560×1600 pixel resolution, talk about a crystal clear picture. How that may effect the battery life I haven’t a clue. Hopefully, we will see it in some devices during CES 2012, but I’m even more interested in benchmarks of NVIDIA’s Kal-el quad-core processors. Last year’s CES introduced the world’s first dual-core smartphone, so it would be quite fitting that this year’s center around a quad-core.

Create powerful widgets for your homescreen with Launch-X! *NEW*: create also SCROLLABLE widgets!

[Honeycomb & Ice Cream Sandwich version coming soon!]

Launch-X features various customizable configurations to allow very quick access to your favorite applications, contacts or generic shortcuts.

With Launch-X you can maximize the usage of your homescreen space. In fact, instead of having the '4 icons on each row' limitation of the stock Launchers, you can put much, much more in the same space!

There are several configurations options available in Launch-X that let you build a widget that best suits your needs. For example, you can create a widget with multiple screens that contains over 40, 50, 100, or more shortcuts! You can even create scrollable widgets in which you can basically put an unlimited number of items!
You can also decide that you prefer not to use the multi-screens feature, and instead keep a more clean single screen with up to 28 items (4 rows, with 7 icons each).

Features:

* Compatible with Samsung Galaxy Tab!
* Unlimited widgets: you can create and configure as many Launch-X widgets as you need.
* Widget sizes: you can choose between 2x1, 2x2, 2x3, 3x1, 3x2, 4x1, 4x2, 4x3, 4x4, 5x1 (for Tablets), 5x2 (for Tablets) and 5x3 (for Tablets).
* Scrollable widgets: you can create a scrollable widget, which allows you to have an unlimited number of items in it.
* Items types: the items that can be added to Launch-X are applications, contacts or generic shortcuts. A shortcut for a contact can start a call, send a message or open the contact itself.
Items order You can easily sort your items as you want, with simple drag-and-drop.
* Icon size: the available sizes for the shortcut icons are "Small", "Medium" and "Large".
* Number of icons: each row can have from 1 up to 7 icons.
* Number of rows: each widget can have from 1 up to 4 rows.
* Screen selection method: you can choose to use the arrows buttons to navigate through screens, or the direct buttons (which allow quicker access to the desired screen). You can also select 'None' to have a single screen with more available space.
* Show/hide items names: the shortcuts/items names can be shown or hidden.
* Background/buttons transparency: select your preferred background and buttons transparency.
* Backup/restore: backup your widgets to the SD card and restore them when needed.

Motorola outs XT928 - 720p screen,13 MP for China Telecom


Motorola has released the XT928 Android smartphone with a 4.5" 1280 x 720 display, 13 MP snapper on the back with 1080p video recording, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and more, exclusively to China Telecom, meaning it will run on a CDMA network. The phone will be available this December.
   
The Motorola XT928 official shots
Just a few days ago Motorola announced the MT917 droid with closely matching specs for China Mobile, also airing this December. It too has a 4.5-incher of 720p resolution, 13 MP camera capable of FullHD video recording, dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and more. The XT928 doesn't have a Kevlar fiber back.
Motorola claims the XT928 is a camera inside a phone and features goodies like Wide Dynamic Range mode for better lighting in the photos.
With each incarnation of Motorola's new flagship we feel more confident that it will only be a matter of time before we see a global version of it for the rest of the world to enjoy.

US Bound Samsung Galaxy Note Caught On Camera?


This image has no alt text
I know a lot of you have been lusting after the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note ever since it was released last month in Europe. We’ve known for quite sometime now that a North American release would follow but the rumor mill has been rather quite with nary a peep or leak — until now. The above image comes to us courtesy from inside some type of Samsung testing office and shows the Galaxy Note with a noticeable lack of the “homescreen button” (some call it the iHome button) from the international version of the phoneblet. If you haven’t noticed by now, whenever the US (or Canada) gets a Galaxy phone, they always seem to do away with that home button. This is most likely an attempt to avoid legal woes with a certain fruity company from Curpertino.
The Galaxy Note LTE has just been made official for South Korea and the SDK for the S-Pen has also been released earlier today. I think I speak for us all when I say that I’m hoping for a speedy Sprint release seeing how everyone else will have a compatible Galaxy Nexus by year’s end (yeah, I went there). Think I need my blanket and passie…

Galaxy Nexus volume bug gets unofficial fix



Android Central
While we wait for Google's promised galaxy Nexus volume bug patch to arrive over-the-air, Paul O'Brien fromMoDaCo already has an unofficial (or at least semi-official) fix ready to download today. The MoDaCo volume bug fix takes the form of a new boot image file (apparently sourced from a test version of the official fix) which you can flash across, assuming you've unlocked your bootloader. If you don't know what any of that means, you're probably better off waiting for the official update to arrive over-the-air -- it shouldn't be too much longer now.
But if you're a reasonably technical individual who's also been frustrated by the infamous glitch, then head over to the source link and enjoy your newfound ability to use data and calls over 2G without any nasty side effects.

psychological facts

NEXUS S 4G

The delayed Nexus S 4G update we first heard would be launching back on July 11th is once again on track to hit handsets, and as suspected the firmware will take the phone’s platform version up to Android 2.3.5. The update doesn’t include anything near as exciting as the built-in video chat functionality found in Android 2.3.4, but it will bring along some WiMAX enhancements for boosted 4G speeds, improved speakerphone quality, and TTY support.

The update is scheduled to being offering relief to those experiencing shoddy WiMAX performance starting Monday, July 25th. We’d bet that an Android 2.3.5 update will be headed to non-4G Nexus S devices sometime soon as well.

ANDROID FACTS.....

1.Android is the latest mobile OS to hit the market with lots of amazing features and promoted by a group of more than 30 renowned companies led by no less than Google itself.
2 It was devised way back in 2003 by Andy Rubin and Rich Miner only to sell it to Google for $50 million
3.While the iPhone can only run one app at a time the Android is a proper multi-tasking mobile OS that can run multiple apps like the Google Maps, media player, browser at the same time without any hiccups. Seems like iPhone has some catching up to do at least in one department
4.Android is based on Linux, the open source operating system and Windows challenger. And if anything challenges Microsoft it interests Google.
