There will always be companies that make assertions that can’t be delivered. Unfortunately this becomes much more of an issue when the consumer is under contract and made that decision based assurances from the device manufacturer. People are claiming that Motorola Mobility (Google by extension) have done just this.

Street View for Google Mobile Maps confirmed

October 3rd, 2012

Search Engine Land is reporting that Google HAS finally confirmed Street View for Google Maps Mobile. This is the mobile browser based Google Maps that is available to any smartphone user, includinh iPhone, Blackberry, Android, Windows Phone and others…(if they exist)

It seems as though Google would confirm this option to a select few publications but not to the majority of the Internet at large. What could have possibly been going through Google PR minds when they decided to do this?

It’s kind of crazy. Two major US newspapers were citing Google that Street View was coming, but Google itself didn’t want to acknowledge that directly?

After a further phone call with Google PR this afternoon, I got a direct confirmation. Yes, Street View will come to Google Maps. Presumably other publications can also now get the same confirmation. But as for timing, Google’s still not saying when it will happen. It seems pretty likely that the Wall Street Journal is correct, that it will hit tomorrow. After all, the Journal is citing Google as saying so.

Next Nexus may be based on Droid Incredible X

September 25th, 2012

Rumors indicate that the next Google Nexus Flagship phone could be coming from HTC and be based upon the Droid Incredible X series.

GSMArena.com brings us this information and have been known to be correct on industry speculation before.

Speculation:
All information points to a slightly updated Android 4.1.2 (JellyBean) release and a whopping 5″ screen with possible 1080p resolution. We can only assume a quad-core configuration (excluding USA?) with 2Gb RAM? and 32/64 Gb storage? (no microSD support).

[Sponsored Video] Art and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

September 25th, 2012

Artist and toy designer, Tristan Eaton, has stripped away our notion of what a tablet computer is cabaple of and replaced it with a new sense of wonder.

People have always viewed tablets as a personal device. One that is viewed and enjoyed primarily by a single individual. With a bit of ingenuity and creativity, Tristian has shown us how a large group could be brought in on the fun from one small device. His ability to stimulate the imagination with a unique perspective, using a simple canvas and a powerful yet affordable device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, is definitely worth viewing.

Check it out!

As you can see, Tristan’s brand of street tough, urban art is an ideal way to show the power of the ‘S Pen, the stylus that accompanies the Galaxy Note 10.1. With the S Pen, an artist is capable of so much more control over their images that it really brings the Galaxy Note 10.1 into the realm of sketch book replacement.

Awesome specs:

1.4GHz Exynos Quad-Core Processor
16/32/64GB User memory + 2GB (RAM)
10.1″ WXGA(1280×800) LCD
microSD (up to 64GB)
Main(Rear): 5 Megapixel Auto Focus Camera
Standard battery, Li-ion 7,000mAh
