LG Optimus Hub Android Smart Phone

LG Optimus Hub

What was supposed to be Univa is now LG Optimus Hub, the next-in-line to Optimus One in the LG Optimus series. The Optimus Hub features as a 3.5 HVGA multi-touch display with a screen resolution of 480 x 320 pixels.

The LG Optimus Hub will run on Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread Operating System. The phone’s CPU is rumoured to run on ARMv6 core 800MHz processor. The phone carries a 5.0 megapixel flash-less VGA camera with video recording done at 24fps, a notch above Optimus One which operates at 18fps.

The Optimus Hub uses a 512 MB RAM. Expandable micro SD card slot is provided too. GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G services are available for the Optimus Hub. The phone also includes Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth connectivity. The phone roughly weighs 123 grams giving it a lightweight, sleek look and has a 1500mAh battery backing 4 hours of talk time.

Considering the processor and RAM specifications, Optimus Hub wouldn’t be able to hold its own if to be used as a rich media client because of the unavailable support for Flash or Browser-based services.

The product is scheduled to be launched in October. Though, LG announced the upcoming Optimus Hub in Italy, taking into account the huge market for Android smartphones in India, it would probably be released here by the year end.

Lenovo K1 IdeaPad Tablet

Lenovo K1 IdeaPad Tablet

Let’s do a roll call, shall we? Who doesn’t have a Honeycomb tablet to shill in the states? Acer, ASUS, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba all have something to their names, with Dell possibly bringing its China-only Dell Streak 10 Pro here too. Until now, Lenovo was one glaring exception. The company already had a head start selling the LePad tablet in China, but it was only last month that it announced not one, but two Honeycomb slates for the US market: the IdeaPad K1 for mainstream consumers, and the ThinkPad Tablet for business users (and a fair share of geeks, too). Now, we could easily roll our eyes at how saturated the market for Android tablets is becoming, but Lenovo isn’t just any old OEM. The brand has won such an avid following that we bet the company could have essentially slapped its name on a plain-Jane black slab and waited for loyal fans to line up.

In fact, though, you’re in for a bit more than name recognition. The K1 goes after mainstream consumers with a winsome design, sure, but also a software package designed to make Honeycomb easier to use, and to help ensure that flummoxed, low-tech users don’t have to spend too much time downloading apps out of the box. What’s more, it ships with Android 3.1 and has a two-cell battery that promises up to ten hours of battery life. Oh, and the 32GB model rings in $499, undercutting the 32GB iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 by $100. But is that enough for it to stand out? Let’s see.

This handset is based on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S3 processor and allows consumers to take multimedia experience to a new level by providing the ability to not only capture and view, but also share data at fast speeds using glasses-free 3D technology.

The HTC EVO 3D runs on Android 2.3 aka Gingerbread and is powered by a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

We are confident that the HTC EVO 3D will set a benchmark for 3D viewing and our consumers will make best use of this offering.”

HTC claims that consumers can benefit from the EVO 3D’s dynamic ability to capture and playback videos in the following ways:

 Real estate agents can create and share 3D virtual tours of homes that let out-of-town buyers “walk through” the house and experience the listings before they can see them live.

  •  3D mapping of terrain will help build new and exciting features for navigation and hikers will be able to get aerial views of the topography of rivers and mountains while in the backcountry
  • Families can “relive” the excitement of their vacation and feel like they are there again.

Yahoo Japan Coming up with Android Yahoo Phone

Yahoo Japan Phone

Yahoo is set to launch an Android-based smartphone called “Yahoo Phone” in Japan, in collaboration with the country’s third largest mobile operator Softbank. The move has come as a surprise for many as Yahoo is considered to be close to the Microsoft, the search and productivity rival of Google, with Yahoo going so far as to power its search by Microsoft’s Bing. However, it’s notable that Yahoo owns each of its international sites with the exception of Yahoo Japan in which it has only 34.79 percent minority stake.

According to TechCrunch, the phone will be manufactured by Sharp and is a remodelled version of the “AQUOS PHONE THE PREMIUM SoftBank 009SH”. The Yahoo Phone features Android 2.3 Gingerbread as its operating system, and comes with a 4-inch LCD with QHD resolution, an 8MP camera, Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, a microSDHC slot, a digital TV tuner, an e-wallet function, infrared communication, and plenty of other geeky Japanese features.

The Yahoo Phone has pre-installed Yahoo apps such as Yahoo Japan Home, Yahoo Japan Auctions, and Yahoo Luco, etc. According to reports, the phone will hit retail shelves later next month in Japan.

In addition to Wi-Fi, the phone features 3G connectivity with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA, 5.76 Mbps HSUPA, which in plain terms means that it is capable of downloading at the fastest speed that the network offers. The BlackBerry 7 browser, part of the OS 7, claims to supports HTML5 with seamless loading, scrolling, and zooming. There is also support for augmented reality using the digital compass and accelerometer. The phone also promises fluid animations and stunning graphics with instant response using its proprietary Liquid Graphics technology. With an inbuilt capacity of 8 GB, it is possible to further add 32 GB using the microSD card slot.

Quad band support for 2G as well as 3G makes it possible to use this phone anywhere in the GSM world.
