It’s 2013 and the wearables are blowing up! Last year, in 2012, the smart watch market was practically Sony’s watch and a few other smaller companies like Meta watch. Pebble, which holds the the title for largest kickstarter project, is probably the most successful at the smart watch till now. It’s a barebones and simply device that’s a companion to your iPhone or Android. The pebble steel specs are also quite satisfying.
On 13th November, ’13, Motorola Mobility announced their successor to the Moto X in São Paulo, Brazil, named the Moto G. CEO, Dennis Woodside, started off with a briefing on the Moto X and it’s features like Active Display, Windy Day and revolutionary Moto Maker software used to design a Moto X as per the user’s requirements that landed the title of the “Best Android phone” from CNN. I’ve explained the X’s features here, so won’t explain them here again as well.
Samsung has made the first move with their smart watch in 2013 with the Galaxy Gear
The rumors have been swirling around all year about companies like Samsung, Apple, Google and Microsoft releasing their smart watches as companions for their respective devices. Samsung being Samsung has rushed out their watch first and they’ve called it the ‘Samsung Galaxy Gear’. The Galaxy Gear leaked out, but the actual device was, surprisingly, different from the leaked details.
The 1st of August wasn’t just important because of the fact that it was the first day of the month, but because Motorola announced its new flagship phone, christened “Moto X” at their press event in New York. Ever since Google purchased Motorola in May 2012 for $12.5 billion, Motorola has released several smartphones but, Google never really had a hand in developing a smartphone from scratch, until now.
A lot of small tablets are in the market now, but Google’s hit Nexus 7 tablet is back and it’s a whole lot better. The Nexus 7 made room for itself in a market dominated by Apples offerings. However that was last year. Now we’re faced with a new year, with more competition and newer technology along with the everlasting chance of failure. The new Nexus 7, by Asus, has expectations that are left for top tier tablets and with that let’s see how it stacks up.
uess the number 41 was the most popular number out there on the streets on that day. All thanks to the whopping 41-megapixel flagship Lumia 1020 announced by Nokia in their press event held in New York, that kept audiences awed and intrigued.
If you thought Samsung would not exceed the 5.5-inch barrier of the Galaxy Note 2, think again. Last week, they unveiled two new Mega phones that go by the name Samsung Galaxy Mega(pun intended). The two phones have low to mid-range specs with 5.8-inch and 6.3-inch screens respectively.
An integral part of making something great is constant refinement. We launched GizmoCube back in June, 2012 with a simple goal: to provide a youth’s perspective on technology and culture. Previously we were using a pre-made WordPress theme which looked “copy-cat” to some other big tech news sites. We want to disassociate ourselves with that and move to something more focused on our quality content. As the brand continued the grow, it was obvious we need something custom made. Today, I’m excited to reveal the new GizmoCube.
Samsung Galaxy S III Mini
Samsung has just recently unveiled the new Galaxy S III Mini which is a down-sized and budget version of Samsung’s extremely famous Galaxy S III flagship. We initially expected the Mini to feature the same or similar specs seen in its older brother, but instead it looks as if Samsung has downgraded most of internals in an effort to reduce the cost. So, is the lower price worth it? Let’s check it out.
