Leaked renders show new colors for Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

Android Central

We first heard whispers of fresh paint jobs for some of Samsung's 2012 devices a couple of months back. Among them was the Galaxy S3 Mini. The previous rumors from SamMobile said that the new colors for Samsung's 4 inch Galaxy S3 Mini would be landing in December 2012, or early 2013. 

Of course, December has been and gone, but SamMobile is back, this time packing some press renders of the new varieties. In addition to the current white version, it looks like we'll be seeing Onyx Black, Garnet Red and Titanium Gray. All these colors are available on the regular Galaxy S3, and unlike the Galaxy Note 2, it looks like we won't be seeing this one in brown

The Galaxy S3 Mini shares the general look and feel of the Galaxy S3, but in a decidedly lower spec body. It does come with Jelly Bean out of the box though, and now at least it seems like there will be more than just plain old white to choose from. No expected date for these new versions has been mentioned at this time.

Lenovo Officially Announces 27 Inch IdeaCenter Horizon Table PC

Today at CES Lenovo announced a new tablet PC device that lets two or more people use it at once. The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC has a massive 27 inch display and runs on Windows 8. On top of Microsoft’s latest operating system the company has placed its own multi-user interface called Aura. This interface is deeply integrated into the OS and allows users to easily launch touch based apps.

Lenovo IdeaCenter Horizon Table PC

IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC Specifications

  • 27 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel multitouch display
  • Up to an Intel Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M graphics with 1GB of memory
  • Up to 8GB of RAM
  • Up to 1TB of hard disk space, plus optional 64GB SSD
  • Integrated WiFi and Bluetooth
  • Stereo speakers
  • USB 3.0, card reader, HDMI ports
  • 720p webcam

The device is 1.1 inches thick and weighs in at a hefty 17.8 pounds making it an unlikely candidate for you to bring to a coffee shop. Its paltry 2 hours of battery life means you’ll have to place this near a wall socket.

You will be able to use this horizontally or vertically. The company is also offering a Horizon Multimode Table which is compatible with this device.

Lenovo has also announced that this product will have its own app store and in fact EA Sports and Ubisoft have already committed in creating games targeted for this.  Other third-party developers are also encouraged to create apps for the Horizon Table PC as the company has already seeded the SDK for anyone to download.

This model isn’t for everyone as it targets a specific market niche which is primarily families who want to play games together. The starting price of $999 isn’t that expensive considering that you’ll already get the 27 inch display. At this price point it’s going to use the ultra-low voltage version of Intel’s Core i3 processor. The Core i7 version with NVIDIA GeForce graphics starts at $1,699.

Expect the IdeaCenter Horizon Table PC to hit stores starting early summer.

CES 2013: Toyota and Audi to roll out autonomous cars

0104-lexus-driverless_full_600

It’s 2013 and humans have advanced a lot in terms of technological capabilities. The Consumer Electronics Show is near and we will be seeing a lot of companies display their products which are made using the latest technology.

CES is always exciting. LG has already announced that they will be launching line up of smart home appliances that are intelligent and communicate with each other. According to the latest reports, Toyota and Audi will be rolling out new self-driving cars at the CES this year. Google has been working on self-driving cars for several years now and according to the videos they have showed, the future is pretty close. Of course it isn’t just the search engine giant into developing autonomous cars. Several companies in the automobile industry are working hard to get the same results and Toyota and Audi are preparing to show off their own semi-driverless cars at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show, which will be taking place on 8th of January in Las Vegas.

Toyota will be showcasing a special version of luxury Lexus LS which will sport rotating radar on top of the car and cameras on the front. The car will also be equipped with Intelligent Transport Systems which will basically help the car’s system to communicate with other cars in the surrounding as well as with the highway “grid”, which can thought of as a decentralized computer network that can coordinate other vehicle’s path, much like an aircraft’s anti-collision system.

Toyata has already leaked a video of the car in action on their official website, and if we take a look at the video we can make out that much of the work has been completed. The car can be seen speeding down the highway without a driver inside it. All the additional equipment such as the radar and cameras are visible from outside, which isn’t great from aesthetic point of view, and also it isn’t aerodynamic, but I’m sure they will conceal all that in the production version in the future and make the car look great.

Audi has also developed somewhat similar, but the company is keeping its lips zipped until the official announcement at the CES. According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, Audi will be launching a car which will have the ability to find parking spot on its own and park itself in that spot without any input from the driver. Audi’s been working on autonomous vehicle technology for quite a while, and so have Ford and Mercedes-Benz.

There are a small number of driverless cars available in the market right now, but all of them are considered “semi-autonomous.” They need some sort of input from humans and at this point they just add features which reduce the driver input to certain extent, but they cannot do tasks autonomously. The new cars from Toyota and Audi aim to offer complete autonomy with very little to no input from driver. The future looks promising. What are your thoughts on this? Let us know using the comment form below.

Samsung Korea posts details about Galaxy S II Jelly Bean update

It seems Samsung hasn’t forgotten about its Galaxy S II users just yet. Today, Samsung Korea posted details to its website regarding an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy S II (it seems to be for the Korean version only for now, but that means the international update should be just around the corner). The update will be available soon via Samsung’s Kies software and will take about an hour to complete. Since it’s such a large update, Samsung will need to reformat your phone’s memory and allocate an extra gigabyte for its “system” memory (where it keeps all the important files). This means you’ll end up with 11 gigabytes of internal memory for your apps, music, pictures an other media. Besides all the normal Jelly Bean goodies like “Google Now”, you’ll be getting Samsung’s “Smart Stay” (a feature that keeps your screen on by using your front facing camera to see if you’re eyes are looking at your phone), and some other stock Google apps like Books and Google+. No word yet on if and when the US variants of the phone will be getting an update, but we will keep you posted if we hear anything. For a full list of improvements, jump past the break.

Major Changes in the new Software Upgrade
1. Platform upgrade Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich → Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
- improved Home screens and improved scrolling performance
- Improved usability for some applications

2. Preloaded applications
- Add Help
- Add Google+
- Add +Talk
- Add Play Book
- Add Play Movie

3. Newly added/improved functions
- Add Easy mode, Block mode
- Improved Camera functions: function like Pause while recording and more
- Add Smart Stay
- New functions like Pop-up play and more
- Improved some functions & applications usability

Pebble smartwatch to debut at next week’s CES

Well, well. What do we have here? It appears as though an invitation from Pebble has made its way to our inbox, notifying us of an event taking place at CES next week. Chief Executive Officer, Eric Migicovsky, will show off the final version of the long-awaited smartwatch in all of its Kickstarter-backed glory.

If you’re unfamiliar, the Pebble smartwatch managed to set a Kickstarter record last year. While it originally aimed to reach a $100,000 funding goal, the wrist-worn device attracted $10 million from eager backers around the world, leaving the company to deal with massive production demands. The watch connects via Bluetooth to your smartphone to offer notifications for calls and texts, with built-in support for third-party apps like Facebook.

The event kicks off at 9AM PST, and we’ll be there live to bring you the latest. Be sure to stay tuned to our CES 2013 hub as well, where we’ll be serving you up-to-the-second coverage straight from the show floor.

Google ‘currently working’ on Google Maps redirect fix on Windows Phone, explains former stance

Google Maps no longer redirecting to Google Search on Window Phone, Google explains

As recently as yesterday, Google was explaining its auto-redirect of Google Maps on Windows Phone devices to Google.com as a question of incompatibility rather than one of choice. “The mobile web version of Google Maps is optimized for WebKit browsers such as Chrome and Safari. However, since Internet Explorer is not a WebKit browser, Windows Phone devices are not able to access Google Maps for the mobile web,” Google told us yesterday. Case closed, right? Apparently not.

As The Next Web reports, Google’s changing its tune today, and is working on a redirect as we speak. “We periodically test Google Maps compatibility with mobile browsers to make sure we deliver the best experience for those users,” the statement reads. “In our last test, IE mobile still did not offer a good maps experience with no ability to pan or zoom and perform basic map functionality. As a result, we chose to continue to redirect IE mobile users to Google.com where they could at least make local searches. The Firefox mobile browser did offer a somewhat better user experience and that’s why there is no redirect for those users,” it continues. The kicker? “Recent improvements to IE mobile and Google Maps now deliver a better experience and we are currently working to remove the redirect. We will continue to test Google Maps compatibility with other mobile browsers to ensure the best possible experience for users.” So! It looks like Windows Phone users employing Internet Explorer for Google Maps will soon be back in business. As of right now, we’re still seeing the redirect in place, but feel free to let us know if you’re already seeing the fix enabled!

New CM 10.1 Devices: XOOM Wi-Fi/3G, Samsung Fascinate, And ODROID-U2

1

Don’t you just love when your device gets a new version of CM? It’s like getting an update from the Android gods, because who knows when the manufacturer/carrier is going to send one out.

Today, four new devices are added to the CM10.1 list:

  • XOOM Wi-Fi (wingray)
  • XOOM 3G (everest) Note: Not compatible with the Verizon variant!
  • Samsung Fascinate (fascinatemtd)
  • …and a newcomer to the scene, the ODROID-U2 (odroidu2)

That’s excellent news for the owners of those devices, but we’re sure there’s one question on everyone’s mind here: what the hell is an ODROID-U2? We wondered the same, but a little digging turned up the answer: it’s an Exynos4412 dev platform with a couple gigs of RAM and a Mali-400 GPU.

Play Magazines Now Has a “Free For Print Subscribers” Option In The US

magazines

Google seems to now be offering a “Free for print subscribers” option with certain magazines in the Google Play Store. At the time of this writing, it seems as if this is only for U.S. users though. When browsing through a lot of the magazines in the Play Store you’ll notice that there are two options: an option for a regular monthly subscription or a yearly subscription. Now there is a third option which allows you to get the digital version of the magazine for free if you are already a subscriber to the print service. Granted, you do have to verify your subscription in order to be eligible for free digital magazines, which could be a bit tedious for some people.

It’s more than likely that Google has to sign some sort of deal with publishers, but regardless, this is a outstanding addition to Play Magazines!

Samsung Korea posts Galaxy S II Jelly Bean update details, but not the release date

Samsung Korea posts Galaxy S II Android 41 Jelly Bean update details

Samsung Galaxy S II owners waiting for an update that adds features (instead of taking them away) may not have long to wait, now that support pages for the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update — announced months ago — have been found on the company’s Korean website. Listing details for all three local carriers, the update will arrive via KIES and change the amount of available internal memory from 12GB to 11GB. Other than the usual list of Android 4.1 features, it will also preload the Google+ and some additional Play apps while adding Samsung features like Smart Stay. There’s no word yet on exactly when the official update will arrive (or a schedule for rollout on US carrier editions), but once it’s out in Korea it shouldn’t take much for owners of the GT-I9100 international version to try it out as well.

SwiftKey Flow Beta Updated To 4.0.0.61

SwiftKey’s take on the swipe keyboard, SwiftKey Flow, has been in public beta for about a month now.  An updated beta was all but guaranteed as the version it replaces, 4.0.0.54, had a limited license for use set to expire January 7, 2013.  Today’s release, 4.0.0.61, has a relatively short limited license, expiring on January 30, 2013, and comes with a host of improvements. The short beta window could be an indication SwiftKey is nearing the end of beta testing or is at least prepared to quickly launch another updated version.

The update brings performance and battery improvements and addresses a few bugs causing force closing and memory leaks. It will also allow for “flow” in landscape on tablets. Hit the source to see the full change log and download the update. I’ve been using it for weeks and have been very happy. Go get it!

Play Magazines now offering ‘free for print subscribers’ option

Play Magazines Subscription

According to a Google Play support document — and confirmed when we browse to some magazines — Google is now offering a "Free for print subscribers" option for certain magazines in the Play Store. When browsing many popular magazine subscriptions in the Play Store that have a print component, tapping on "subscribe" offers you three options. On top of the regular monthly or yearly subscriptions, you now have the option to get the digital version for free if you're already a print customer.

Google has likely signed some kind of content deals to make this happen, but however it happened it's a good thing. Many different publishers have offered this feature for their own websites and magazines, but its nice to see Google offering the same option with a digital subscription through the app as well.

New ‘Amber Brown’ Galaxy Note 2 shows up again, this time in real photos

Amber Brown Galaxy Note 2

Quickly following on the heels of leaked renders of two new colors of the Galaxy Note 2, we've got some real hands-on images of the Amber Brown version of the device. The device seems to be all the same as the other Note 2 varieties, but now covered in a deep brown color. This is probably going to be a bit of a polarizing color — either love it or hate it — if we have to be honest, but more options are always better. This model is a Japanese version for the carrier NTT Docomo but it's feasible that we could see this color, along with the new "Ruby Wine" (aka red) color, come to other markets also.

We've got one more look at the device for you after the break. The source link below has several more with pictures of the box, accessories and color-matched brown flip cover as well.

Evernote Skitch app update brings a handful of notable improvements

Evernote rolled-out the 2.0 update for the Skitch app back in late-October. That update was rather nice and included goodies such as deeper integration with Evernote. And well, it looks like another Skitch related update has come available in Google Play. This latest isn’t full of new features, however it does include a handful of notable updates and improvements.

skitch-banner

Simply put, this is an update that current Skitch users will want to grab. It may also be enough for those who stopped using Skitch to give it another look. That being said, this update brings Skitch up to version 2.0.5.63 where it remains available for free and for devices running Android 2.0 or later.

The folks at Evernote are touting this release as having better, smarter tools. And by that, the pen tool and the move/pan tool have both been improved. Skitch also got a new hold and lock feature which will allow users to prevent the app from auto-switching tools. The pen tool is now faster and smoother and the move/pan tool change deals with a new behavior that makes it become active when you select an object and then revert back to the previous tool when you delete, deselect, or swipe your finger elsewhere.

Otherwise, the remaining goodies in this update include easier access to settings with a new icon on the home view, new tool tips, an improved Move tool and “numerous other improvements make the app smoother to use and more stable.” Those looking for Skitch can fire up the Play Store on their device or use this link to head on over to the Play Store.

Jelly Bean update now pushing out to HTC One X on O2 UK

Android Central

A quick heads up to our friends in the UK rocking a HTC One X on O2. A tasty treat has begun to push out in the form of the much awaited Jelly Bean update, confirmed today by HTC UK on their official Twitter feed. As is so often the case with these things, the update is being pushed out in batches, so not everyone will get it right away. To check if you're one of the lucky ones be sure to head into Settings>About>Software Updates>Check Now. 

The update is pretty hefty in size at 365MB, so you'll want to be connected to WiFi. The 4.1 update for the One X has been rolling out internationally for a few months now, and while O2 customers will no doubt have been chewing their fingers off in anticipation, at last their patience has paid off. In addition to all the benefits of Jelly Bean like Google Now and Project Butter, the update brings with it the latest version of HTC's Sense software, known as Sense 4+. If you've managed to snag the update today, be sure to share your experiences with us in the comments below.

Our Windows Phone-loving pals at WPCentral have found themselves in quite the pickle. First there's the whole to-do over YouTube and the fact that Google's not opening up its metadata to Windows Phone, so third-party apps can't search videos as well as we can on Android. (Or in the iOS YouTube app, for that matter.) Now they can't even use Google Maps. Not that there's been an official Windows Phone version of Google Maps — nor do we really expect one anytime soon — but for some reason pointing Internet Explorer to maps.google.com redirects back to the mobile verison of Google's home page.

Shenanigans? Or Gremlins? We're willing to bet it's just a hiccup and that Google's not shutting out Windows Phone from Google Maps, but it's an inconvenience, to say the least. And Gizmodo says this actually has been the case from the start. (Though that's apparently not true.) On the other hand, WPCentral's Daniel Rubino questions "why you would want to use Google’s less-than-awesome mapping service through a browser." With an attitude like that, pal, don't expect the boys and girls at Google to bend over backwards for you on a Friday.
