samsung core

samsung-galaxy-core-galaxy-core-i8262-400x400-imadhkx6gpzjyxyg

The above listed features are all available in Galaxy core…

Coming to the phone …Things I like
1. It feels pretty solid on the hand its plastic but its great
2. Camera is pretty decent for the price
3. Screen pixel density is enough so that you dont see any pixels at normal viewing distance and the screen is vibrant and blacks are really deep and high in contrast
4. Battery life is pretty good, I had GPS and 3G
always on and it gave me one full day which is pretty decent
considering i used the phone a lot. With GPS and 3G on it used
7 percent of battery while left to sleep overnight.
5. I dont play games, but when i read people complaining that
even subway surfer lags i wanted to try it and guess what
it never lagged it was fluid and lag free for the half hour or so
i played and its not like i never had any applications running on the
background, I never killed any task and it ran subway surfers pretty good
6.I had a Samsung Galaxy chat and it came with ICS 4.0 and now
Samsung has updated it to Jelly bean 4.1.2,….
so this mobile will surely get up to JB 4.3 in 5 to 6 months.
7. Screen size is perfect not too big and not too small…
8. Swipe key pad is excellent (Unless you use it you will never know how good it is)
9. No onscreen buttons like the Sony experia M, its a pain to tap once to activate the onscreen button and then press again and it does not take the screen space with a black bar
guys the best part is its light weight body
so go and grab your all new core …

Google Glass

GoogleGlass_15
Hey guys, you all have heard about google. google glasses is the great creating by google Google Glass is still a pre-release product that’s fairly rough around the edges.lock feature is something the google has talked about earlier.keeping user things private.
Glass Boutique, which would offer up Glassware software in one central location directly accessible from the device likewise isn’t surprising, either. Still, this is the first time it’s been mentioned, and indications are that it will offer access to both Mirror API titles like those currently available and native SDK apps that run on Glass itself.All of these changes are essentially key elements of existing mobile device platforms, like iOS and Android for smartphones. This product is the great buy for the busy and the working people by time it will evolove many other things in it.

Jawbone up

The UP wristband by Jawbone promises a lot. It takes a ‘holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle’ to ‘keep you moving forward’.

It will keep track of your sleep and how much you move, while you input what you eat and your mood.

The band itself comes in three sizes and will fit round your wrist tight enough not to fall off but certainly loose enough to be comfortable.

article-2344171-1A5626C9000005DC-164_634x315

It’s quite flexible so it won’t snap if it gets jerked from your arm, quite light so you can easily forget you’re wearing it.

The UP is essentially a computer that fits around your wrist, inside a rubber casing. It’s water resistant, so you can shower with it – but not totally waterproof (don’t go swimming wearing it).

It is available in a selection of colours – some of them rather vibrant – but I went for onyx, a shade of black.

Some of the brighter ones might not be acceptable to wear in the workplace, dependent on where you ply your trade.

I found it comfortably fitted underneath jacket and hoodie sleeves and larger cuffs, but tight cuffs meant it was more comfortable to push the band right to the top of the wrist.

The band has no visual interface, other than one symbol which does not light up other than to tell you whether the band is in ‘day’ or ‘sleep’ mode, or if it’s charging.

To upload the data recorded to your phone – for use on the UP app, which is the second half of the product – you take the cap off the band and plug it into the headphone jack.

220px-Jawbone

This is a good way of accessing the data because it means you can do it on the move, instead of having to plug both the band and your phone into another computer.

In an ideal world the data would transfer to the band automatically via Bluetooth, but that would have a massive impact on the battery life of UP.

The band goes for an astonishing 10 days once charged – via a USB port for 80 minutes – meaning you don’t have to constantly worry about getting to a computer.

It was around nine days for me, because I frequently updated my phone with the information because I was fascinated.

In the fortnight I trialled the band I never ran out of battery – which is more than I can say for my mobile phone.

The idea I was most interested in was the band’s ability to track your sleep, and it’s also the part of the product that most impressed me.

When you’re ready to go to bed, you push a button to switch it to sleep mode – a little moon symbol.

You have to remember to do this each night – I forgot once in 14 days, after a night out. Remembering in general is easy, if you set a routine of bringing the ‘moon’ up when you turn your lights down.

When you wake up in the morning, switch the band back to day mode by pressing the button. When you plug it into your phone, it will have the story of your night.

The band will inform you how much deep sleep you had, how much light sleep and how many times you woke up. It displays this over a bar chart of the night, which is easy to interpret

article-2344171-1A562B24000005DC-683_634x430

Jawbone Up is a pedometer, but with pretensions of being much more. Within its “medical grade” rubber casing, the Up houses a number of motion sensors and shares the information it collects with a smartphone app for iPhones and Android.

Beyond counting your steps, Jawbone believes the Up is capable of monitoring your sleep as well. Using proprietary algorythms, the
wristband and its software tell you how well you slept based on how you moved, sensing a difference between light and deep sleep and acknowledging.

jawbone-press1-380-75

Smartly designed

There is one thing for certain: the Jawbone UP is fantastically designed. Both the wristband and the app are sleek, easy to grasp and a pleasure to use
aaaaaaa
The band itself is completely devoid of clasps or clips. It is a flexible loop that you slip around your wrist, and it sits comfortably below your hand. There are three sizes to choose from, with a size guide on the Jawbone site.

Best of all, the wristband looks good to wear. Our review unit is black, and it goes with every outfit in our wardrobe, from unwashed weekend wear to cocktail party dress.

At one end of the band is a small, square tip, that looks like mere decoration. In fact, this is the single button on the Up that users interact with. A long press on the button changes between day and night modes (you switch it before bed), and a double-press and hold command starts special modes, like a power nap, or the recording of an excercise session.
On the opposite end is a cap with the Jawbone logo on. When removed, a 3.5mm jack is revealed which should plug into every phone that the Up app is available on. Cleverly, this connection is used for data transfers from the band and also for charging — there is a 3.5mm to USB adapter in the box.

Arguably, it would have been more clever to use Bluetooth for data syncing with smartphones — the way its major competitor FitBit does. Tugging off the protective cap and plugging the wristband into a phone is no great strain, but we’ll always prefer a wireless solution.

A full battery charge is good for 10-days worth of use, should you won’t be using the adapter too frequently, which is a plus.

Amkette evo tv

FFFRF
EvoTV is a range of net connected media players developed by Amkette that brings internet and web2.0 features to the television. EvoTV was envisioned to be a substitute to the growing range of Smart TVs in the market. Instead of replacing complete television sets to get internet based features users could just connect an EvoTV and get the same features at a much lower cost. EvoTV is based on the Android operating system, can connect to the internet wirelessly, and can stream local, network and internet media and audio files. Once connected users can access Android Playstore Apps using EvoTV on their television. The first EvoTV was launched in the middle of 2012 and received many positive reviews and awards. In 2013 Amkette EvoTV won the NDTV Gadget Award for the Best Consumer Electronic.

EvoView – Is the user interface which allows customization of the home screen for applications, videos, and weblinks.

EvoRemote – is a feature packed remote control which has gathered much praise as being an intuitive and advanced method to interact with EvoTV and access all the features available on it. It comes with a touch sensitive button to control the movement of the EvoTV pointer.

MyYTViewer – is an application that allows creation of live groups based on various criteria such as channels, category, terms and more for video from youtube.

Motion Gaming – allows users to play games with the motion of the remote control

Amkette EvoTV is a android based Media Player that comes with loads of connectivity, a good form factor. It’s design is nice, a small black square box that can be covered by my palm.

The Remote :
Now this is the thing that actually made me buy this Media Player, It has got capacitive buttons which when touched can be used to move the cursor, it makes it act like a air mouse, control is easy and I don’t have to move my whole hand to move from one point of screen to another, movement of wrist is more than enough.
It has got a accelerometer inbuilt that helps in control motion sense games (read not all motion games are compatible). A inbuilt Mic in the remote for Skype (yes, Skype works flawlessly)
And other Zoom in-out buttons that works when moved finger clock wise or vice-versa with media player buttons to control the music, play-pause, volume up-down, next-previous.
Gaming Mode button makes the remote more responsive and faster also activates it’s motion gaming capabilities if the game supports and is compatible to it.

Remote Specs :
Radio Frequency: 2.4 Ghz. Does not need line of sight
Range: 10 meters
Air Mouse: Works in 360’ direction
EvoTouch Functions: Touch sensor for on screen control
Gaming Mode: Motion sensors for games
Inbuilt Microphone for video conferencing and voice commands
Universal Remote functions for standard TV control
Battery: 3.7 V, 700 mAh Li-ion Rechargeable with charging cable

Pros:
Android Media Player
A Powerful Remote (IMO the cost of the remote will be more than that of the box)
WiFi/Ethernet Connectivity
DLNA
Loads of Games
Android 2.3.4
4 USB Ports
Mali 400 GPU
Cortex A-9 Processor
YouTube Channel
Updates
Makes my TV a Computer (Almost)
Plays almost all formats
SPDIF Output
HDMI Output

Cons :
Home Screen Lags a Bit
Force Close Issues arise sometimes (rarely)
No Bundled Keyboard
Have to change the media resolution to 1080p if I want to play a Full HD Movie.
4GB Inbuilt Memory is Less for me.
512MB Ram (1GB would have made me more happier)
No USB 3.0
Now the Main Features
UI :
It comes with a 6 Screen tiles UI which is fully customizable and I can add my own views, application, web links or a single widget inside a Tile. I Can also add Widget like Facebook, twitter on the tiles also.
On the left Corner information about weather is given and on the bottom part a live newsfeed keeps going which is again good. It’s simple, nice and does the job nicely but one thing that effects is while scrolling sideways It does lag a bit
Would rate it 4/5 (Because of the lag) (Edit : Complained about the same and they did somethings and the box is smooth now !! )

As a Media Player :
It plays almost all the formats I’ve thrown to it, be it a Full HD x264 or MKV or even a AVI file, it has played all of them easily and the quality is nice. The only thing I don’t like is that in order to have the best video quality for 1080p movies I’ve to change the video mode to 1080p which makes the system a still slower and I think 1GB Ram could have played a important part here. Never the less even at the 720p mode, it is very difficult to differentiate between the quality, have tested it on my 32 incher as well as a 42 incher regza.
As far as playing music is concerned it does play FLAC files and it’s SPDIF output gives a better sound output
Overall for it’s media player capability would rate it 4/5

Games :
I’m a Hardcore Gamer and I love these anywhere, on my phone to my Desktop and now the Media Player. IT does come with few games, but you can always download game from Play Store (yes it comes with Google Play). Have download and tried few free games currently have around 10-12 fully compatible games other than what comes in the box. As it comes with the Mali 400 GPU, the graphics quality is nice and feels like I’m playing the old classics again on my TV.
Gaming is fun and I really liked it, this is one of the best features of EvoTV that actually made me buy it. Motion sensing is flawless although it doesn’t work in every game, but for the time being happy with these few games. It Fills the gap of gaming console for me.
Overall would rate 4.5/5 (Few Very good free games out there.)
