It looks like future devices from Samsung might be able to keep a tab on your health stats. The company has filed a patent for advanced laser technology that uses mobile devices to monitor your health healt vitals.
5G is the next major phase of mobile telecommunications and follows the global adoption of the 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) standard since 2012. A new report from China states that the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has started research and testing of the 5G technology.
Technology is constantly evolving and with each new breakthrough in technology, a new gadget or device is spawned. This is true especially in the past century where we had corded landlines which then evolved into mobile phones, film cameras that evolved into digital cameras, record players that evolved into mp3 players and PMPs (portable media players) that we could put in our pockets. The list goes on and on.
Intel and Micron have debuted a new memory chip that can be used as non volatile memory as well as system memory. Dubbed as 3D XPoint, the technology is 1,000 times faster than the current-generation NAND flash chips upon which modern solid-state drives are built.
If you were thinking that Samsung made a good decision to stick with a 1440p panel on the Note 5 instead of going for the rumored 4k display then you aren’t alone. We’ve reached ridiculously high pixel densities on our smartphones that have more than enough sharpness and detail. However, it looks like the resolution wars are far from over as Samsung have announced that they’re planning to make a mobile display with 11k resolution.
Earlier this month Nokia and NTT DOCOMO had announced a pact to research on 5G technology. Today, National Instruments (NI) has teamed up with Nokia’s Network Business to work on fifth generation (5G) wireless technologies such as exploring peak data rates and cell-edge rates in excess of 10 Gbps and 100 Mbps, respectively.
Google has announced that it is rolling out Android 4.4 update to Google Glass along with other improvements. The company is launching the update soon after last week’s announcement which will allow the US buyers to shop the Google Glass for a limited period of time on April 15th.
As you know by now, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is completely out in the open, and it is all about the camera. The 41 Megapixel sensor is back, and the Lumia 1020 takes over its predecessor as one of the best smartphone cameras ever. While the output is stunning, there is a lot of behind the scenes work going on inside the camera in terms of hardware as well as software, and as a tradition since the Nokia 808 PureView, Nokia have released a Whitepaper that details all the technological innovation packed in this cameraphone. We know that might be a hard read for the most of you, so we have done the heavy lifting of text crunching and are providing you with the most interesting tidbits out of it, read on!
Samsung is the leader when it comes to display technology, they have been manufacturing one of the best displays from quite some time, Samsung had patented the concept of foldable display in South Korea in the year 2006, the recently granted U.S patent for Samsung’s foldable display actually shows some positive light in this concept.
Just a few months back we hit the mark of 7 billion people on earth. And now, believe it or not around 6 billion cell phone subscribers. This clearly shows how technology has grown over the years. This actually means that 86 people out of 100 have a cell phone subscription.
Samsung has just signed a joint venture with Corning to to manufacture a new range of speciality glass substrates for its OLED equipped devices.
Hi Guys, i’m back home from Nokia World and got immediately struck down by a heavy cold. as is half of Nokia World. To whoever did this to us, step forward to receive your deserved punishment! 😀
Anyways, i’m trying to slowly bring in all the Content from Nokia World, and i wanna start off with the coolest Thing by a long shot. Have you Guys seen Iron Man 2 and Tony Starks awesome Computer? Well, Nokia is currently working on something just as nice. What they did is plug in the Nokia N8 to a flat screen, with the camera pointing to the picture on the TV. The N8 Camera basically then reacts on everything thats happening on the big Screen with Gestures. For now this is only scroll and click, but possibilities are endless. As you can hear in the Video, this could be used on any TV, with any Type of Nokia Phone.
There is no word yet when we can expect this here in real life, but I WANT!! 🙂 Enjoy this little Video guys
What do you think?
One of the most hyped term in Telecom industries, these days, is 3G services. And same is the situation with mobile phone lovers.
Everyone out there, is consistently eyeing on BSNL and MTNL to know when 3G services will be launched in their area. Continue reading “3G Services Launch Delayed Further in MTNL Mumbai”
While the rise in mobile phones users has been making waves, I recently came across this story which brought to light the extent to which mobile phone users in India will go to own one and subsequently charge one.
According to this story by a leading New Channel, villagers in Karaj in the Sagar district of Madhya Pradesh, walk 20 kilometers everyday to get their mobile phones charged.
They however have no qualms doing it, since this village has no electricity and no decent roads. Earlier this lack of basic development used to cause many people to get sick during the monsoons. Mobile phones have given the people in this powerless village entertainment and power to connect with their family and close friends.
Isn’t this a shame for the Indian Government…that in this day and age, a country that is touted to be a superpower in the next two decades still has un-electrified villages?
Technology has managed its penetration, wonder when basic infrastructure will find its way through India’s heart that lay in its villages….
Nokia has come out with a new wireless connectivity standard called Wibree. Nokia claims that Wibree maintains a data rate of 1Mbps (not as good as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, which tops out at 2.1Mbps) at a range of up to 30 feet (yes, Class 1 Bluetooth can go up to 100 meters), operates in the 2.4 GHz band, but says that it’s “10 times more energy efficient than Bluetooth,” according to Bob Iannucci, head of Nokia Research Center. Nokia also said that it’s working with Broadcom, CSR, Epson, Nordic Semicondutor and other companies to further develop the standard so that Wibree products can be released by the second quarter of 2007.
Nokia Press Release
Nokia introduces Wibree technology as open industry initiative
A unique radio technology extending local connectivity to small devices
Technical details: Wibree technology complements close range communication with Bluetooth like performance within 0-10 m range and data rate of 1 Mbps. Wibree is optimized for applications requiring extremely low power consumption, small size and low cost. Wibree is implemented either as stand-alone chip or as Bluetooth-Wibree dual-mode chip. The small devices like watches and sports sensors will be based on stand-alone chip whereas Bluetooth devices will take benefit of the dual-mode solution, extending Bluetooth device connectivity to new range of smallest devices.
