And TGB was thinking to skip the Xperia Z3 because of the highly rumoured incremental increase from the original camera specifications of Z2.  

I shall nickname my new Xperia Z3, SKEETS, if the rumours of a Gold phone is true.

OK, V3 Audio and Video at Sim Lim Square … pls standby one set for me in GOLD.  Thank you!

*update: 10:55am 21 Aug 2014 +8hrs GMT*  Dang it!  It is for Xperia M2.  Though still sweet.  

Brace yourselves for awesomeness! Sony Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact rumours getting real.

Well, a couple of hours ago, this was leaked online.

With the rumoured model number SGP621 it seems that the very recently rumoured Sony Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact is fast becoming real.

BSC10 Bluetooth Speaker Dock with Magnetic Charging Pad
Did I tell you that the Sony BSC10 actually works very well with my Nokia Lumia 1520 and Nokia Lumia 930 devices to play sweet awesome music, though I just cannot charge them … still use them as a “talking station” whenever I am on SKYPE.

This image above is apparently a revision to the BSC10, Bluetooth NFC Enabled Speaker Dock, which TGB is also very proud to have bought it from V3 Audio & Video in Sim Lim a couple of weeks ago.

Looks like Sony is not just gonna come up with new accessories to squeeze more moolah from their loyal consumers, unlike some Shamedung brands …

And from the maths of the attachments that comes along with the Sony BSC10, it seems that the Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact is gonna be a mere 6.5mm thick.

Well Sony Fans, BRACE YOURSELVES FOR AWESOMENESS!!!

Because IFA 2014 is coming.  *ps. I should be in Berlin I think … DANG!

I Like Big Screens I Cannot Lie

Most people have what we once called “big-screened” smartphones these days, with screens pushing past the 5 inch mark almost a prerequisite on most manufacturers’ checklist when building a new phone. It feels like bigger screens, plus a substantial leap in the computing power of mobile devices like tablets and phones have contributed to a change in the usage pattern of other devices such as our TVs and our PCs.

I once toted around a Nokia E61 and attracted remarks that it was huge, and looked like I was carrying around a calculator. It was way ahead of time though, with WLAN, SD card support and a large screen. Its multitasking was formidable too – browsing, podcast playing and messaging could all be juggled simultaneously.

Fast forward to the present day, and I find myself able to rely on my phone for almost all non-work related tasks. Browsing, media consumption, communication all go through the smartphone. I barely even need to pick up a tablet since the Note 3 does a good job at nearly everything. Not too long ago, Android devices still lagged when switching between open apps. Not optimal when you’re trying to switch between say, Officesuite, a PDF reader and email. Once they started putting 3GB of RAM in phones, I’d say that such lag has been reduced to be near negligible. App switching feels the same as doing it on a desktop. In many cases, my phone switches apps even faster than the work PC!

Do you think that big screens have changed the way we use our personal devices? My laptop is seeing much reduced use ever since I started using the Note 3, and the same fate has befallen my tablet. Will we see the day when personal laptops won’t really be needed anymore?

 

The One (M8) With Windows 8.1 Update One

HTC_M8_Windows

The soon to be announced HTC One (M8) running Windows Phone has been prematurely revealed, thanks to this image on Verizon’s servers. The switch to onscreen keys for Windows Phone, support for popular chipsets like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and HD resolution has probably made it much easier for manufacturers like HTC to simply slap WP onto existing Android handsets. The rumoured features for WP 8.1 Update One such as support for flip covers makes even more sense considering HTC has a neat Dot Cover for the One (M8) that its WP sibling will soon be able to take advantage of.

Windows Phone 8.1 Update is coming!

Hot on the heels of the Windows Phone 8.1 update (In the form of Lumia Cyan for most of us), the latest news from Microsoft is that there’s going to be a further update called, “Windows Phone 8.1 Update”, yes with a capital “U”. For convenience’s sake most people should just continue to call it GDR1, or at least Update 1, which is what I will call it.
