All you need to know about Android’s Jellybean 4.1

ArDroid did an amazing detailed post about the new ver. of Android I advice everyone to check it out.

Personally I liked how Google is trying to optimize what they did in Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. The previous update was pretty major and huge, this one is more of an upgrade. making it faster, more friendly, and smooth. Adding new features like offline voice typing, Google now search, widgets enhancement , a more accessible notification bar, and a better camera experience.

The update gonna be release to Nexus phones in July. I’m waiting for the ROM for the SIII :P

CES: Asus 7-inch Tablet Quad-Core for $250

ASUS 7″ Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet. This 7″ slate is aimed at the budget crowd but in no way, shape, or form a budget device. All those 3rd party tablets lacking Android Market support wont have anything on this — for now.

 

ASUS has bundled a 1280 x 800 resolution 7″ slate with the quad-core Tegra 3 and 4.0 ICS. What’s better than that? The Price! $250  this tablet hit the shelves in early Q2 2012

Quad-Core processor for mobile phones

image

This is getting ridiculous.Nvidia gonna release this processor this year.
Does this mean by end of 2012, smart phones will run Uncharted 3 ? And by 2013 they’ll have jetpacks ? does this threaten the videogame consoles ? Smart phones & Tablets are getting updated on hardware and software on annual basis. On the other hand, consoles like ps3/xbox360 only get software updates which don’t do much in terms of graphics.

The console lifespan is like what ? 5-6 years ? The smart phones/tablets are getting more powerful every quarter of a year . Imagine a company like Blizzard releasing an MMO on the mobile market ?

Do you think the gaming community is shifting towards the mobile market more than the console ?

Augmented Reality

This is a new technology being developed for the new smart phones. Now, Qualcomm is implementing this technology in Android smartPhones. Long story short, check this video.

I remember a game on PS3 called Eye of Judgement which had the same principal; seeing the same thing on a smart phone is pretty impressive.

Also, if you are familiar with an App–Android– called Layer which lets you take pics of a certain place then you put a layer of information about this place.
