When Samsung launched its 7 inch tablets many purist, including Steve Jobs, criticized the form factor of these pony tablets. After almost one year, 7 Inch Samsung Galaxy Tab is a success. Now one more time Samsung is playing its card on a new form factor for a tablet. Samsung is all ready to introduce a super decked up tablet Samsung Galaxy Note. Calling Galaxy Note a tablet can be misleading as it can very well qualify for a super powerful smartphone. If you want to use it as a phone, you need to have a big hand for sure. This new device has a 5.3 inches large display. As far as specifications are concerned, Samsung Galaxy Note can beat any boastful tablet/smartphone (read iPhone) which is available in market or is about to be launched. Lets see why this smartphone/tablet is a performance power house.
Nokia is again relying on its dying legacy of Symbian mobile OS. Recently Nokia has launched its X series of phone with a better and bigger screen. After learning hard lessons with resistive screens, Nokia is now decking its smartphones with AMOLED capacitive screens. As we know that performance wise capacitive screens are better than resistive screens, they can withstand larger temperature variations, they are more responsive than resistive screens. Also Nokia is giving a latest Symbian, code named Anna (Is it in Telgu for big brother ??) .
It has been a month or so since the release of HTC Thunderbolt LTE, yet there was no teardown report of this awesome smartphone. We normally expect iFixit team to release such teardowns but this time FCC released some images of HTC Thunderbolt teardown. Though the images are not as good as a iFixit release, still these images give us a fair bit of idea how such a thin and “not so big” device manages to pack such power-packed features. The most interesting aspect of this teardown is to see the placement of EVDO and LTE antennas, among other things. In of of the pictures we can clearly see a Qualcomm MDM9600 processor. One can also see iNAND flash memory by Sandisk and Samsung.
