The new Samsung-made Nexus 10 uses the next-generation Exynos chipset an Exynos 5 with two Cortex-A15 cores at 1.7GHz and Mali-604 GPU, to be exact the chip name is Exynos 5250

Rumors, from a korean source, that the next Samsung Galaxy S IV will use an Exynos 5 chipset should come as no surprise, but the rumor is pointing to the Exynos 5450 with a Quad-core A15 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz and a beefier Quad-core Mali-658 GPU, which is faster than the Nexus 10's Exynos 5250

The Exynos 5450 will be made on a 28nm process (instead of 32nm as the Exynos 5250) and the CPU will probably be downclocked to at least 1.7GHz, but even then battery might be an issue.

Google has just released its New Nexus devices lineup with Android 4.2 named also "Jelly Bean", You prabably wondering, What's New in Android 4.2 Jelly bean ?

Multiple user accounts

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for tablets adds multiple user-support to the OS. This way everyone in the household can have an account, which once logged in, welcomes them to their own homescreen, background, widgets and apps. Even the games keep the individual high scores and levels.

Settings center drawer in the Notifications

The expandable notifications were a welcomed addition in Android 4.1, but now in Android 4.2, you can also take various actions like toggling Wi-Fi, adjusting screen brightness, go to Airplane mode, and more.

To do so, just tap on the icon on the top right once you have the notification drawer on. It took Google a while to copy the time-saving feature that TouchWiz, SenseUI and many other manufacturer Android skins implemented a while ago. Still, it's good to have it backed in right into the OS.

Smart Gesture Typing

Forget about Swype, Android's very own Gesture typing is the new cool kid on the block. It works in a manner very similar to Swype you just Swipe your finger over the letters you want to type, lifting after each word is complete.

Photo Sphere

With Android 4.0, Google introduced the Panorama capturing mode, and now with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean users will get a cool feature dubbed Photo Sphere. It's a panorama mode on steroids and allows you to capture photos in multiple directions (up, down, left, right). Watch the demo video at the end of the article.

Wireless TV integration

Better late than never, finally in this version of Android Google has allows you to wirelessly share the screen of your phone or display with a big screen TV set. All you need to do is connect a wireless display adapter to an HDMI-enabled TV and then it'll start mirroring whats on your screen using DLNA. The new feature uses the Miracast protocol for streaming.

Various improvements

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean has a lot going for it, including some minor additions. You can now use pinch-to-zoom in Gmail for enhancing reading, triple-tap to magnify the entire homescreen and the pan and zoom with two fingers, as well as added speech output and gesture mode navigation for the visually impaired users.


Some people were expecting that the Google might disappoint with the camera experience on the Nexus 4, but it looks like Google paid extra attention to adding new camera features. One cool new camera feature coming to Android 4.2 is Photo Sphere, which Google says, “lets you capture images that are literally larger than life. Snap shots up, down and in every direction to create stunning 360-degree immersive experiences that you can share on Google+ with friends and family—or you can add your Photo Sphere to Google Maps for the world to see.”

Several of these Photo Spheres are already live online, and you can explore incredible uploads from photographers around the world right now. I really love the idea of being able to capture 360 photos, and I can’t wait to start sharing them with others. Watch the video and let us know what you think.

Here is the Samsung Nexus 10 screenshots, Confirm the Naming, Specs, It is running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean not Key Lime Pie) that has support for larger display. It also brings some new features like Multi-user profiles and new Play Store widgets.

The Nexus 10 allegedly has a dual-core 1.7GHz Samsung Exynos 5250, a Mali-T604 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (No microSD slot), a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, NFC, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP. The 10.1-inch display is a Super AMOLED HD with 2560 x 1600 resolution. This translates into 298.9 PPI which is far higher than Apple's iPad4.


Just as teased earlier, the 5″ LG Optimus Vu phone-tablet is finally here in Malaysia. The device is priced outright at RM1,899, which is slightly more than the LG Optimus 4X HD. Powering the device is a quad-core Tegra 3 processor running at 1.5GHz mated with 1GB of RAM and a rather generous 32GB of storage. If you plan to expand storage, unfortunately there’s no microSD expansion slot available.

For the display, the Optimus Vu utilises a 5″ True HD IPS screen that pushes a XGA resolution of 1024×768. This gives it a pixel density of 256ppi (pixels per inch). There’s a 8MP camera at the back which is capable of shooting 1080p HD videos while the front comes with a 1.3MP camera. With stylus coming back as a trend, the Optimus Vu also lets you take notes with its dedicated Rubberdium pen.

Out of the box, it comes running with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and it is juiced up with a 2,080mAh battery. The Optimus Vu comes in black and white colour options. Overall, the Optimus Vu is 90.4mm wide, 8.5mm thick and weighs 168 grams. As comparison, the new Galaxy Note II has a thickness of 9.4mm, width of 80.5mm and it weighs 180 grams.


Just like the Samsung Nexus 10 tablet, the manual for the upcoming LG Nexus 4 is out officially ahead of its official event happening next week.

Thanks to detailed leaks including a pre-announcement review, there really isn’t much left of the Nexus 4 to be revealed. However in the manual, it is revealed that the LG Nexus 4 will come with wireless charging capabilities. From the way it is mentioned, the wireless charger doesn’t seem to come out of the box and it is sold separately. Hit the source link to download the manual.

To recap on the specs, the Nexus 4 is a new Android 4.2 device that’s powered with a quad-core S4 processor, 2GB of RAM and comes with a 4.7″ 1280×768 HD display. It will be announced next week on 29th October together with a new Nexus 10 tablet and 32GB variant of the Nexus 7 which may also come with 3G connectivity.


Nexus 4 UK price £390

Oh, Carphone Warehouse -- it just can't seem to keep what it knows about the LG / Google Nexus 4 under lock and key. Just days after briefly listing the phone on its website, purported in-store displays for the yet unannounced device have leaked out to Android Authority. While essentially of the details are the same as what we saw last (1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 SoC, 8MP cam, 12-hour talk time rating, etc.), the listing reveals that the "sim-free" phone itself will sell for £390 (about $504) -- previously we'd only seen the per-month pricing at 31 euros, which is also found here. There's no mention of that October 30th sale date this time, and it would seem unlikely now given that Google's had to indefinitely postpone its NYC-based Android event for the 29th due to hurricane Sandy.


Google’s upcoming Android event might have been cancelled, but details of their new Nexus devices continues to leak out. Today the guys at Brief Mobile posted a brief video of the Nexus home screen. The preview is only a couple seconds long, but this anonymous source has access to the device and we expect a couple more videos will be shared over the coming days.

New details from the hands-on report include:

- Screen may be IPS. It was my mistake yesterday writing “Super AMOLED.” We fixed that in our article and sent out a Twitter update about the correction. Our source claims the screen reproduces colors akin to the HTC One X and looks “gorgeous.”
- Camera takes “excellent” pictures, according to the source
- Back of the device feels like a faux brushed metal
- It’s extremely light and thin

The upcoming Nexus 4 is rumored to include wireless charging, and today a supposed picture of the charging pad leaked out. The photo was first posted on Phone Arena who admits this could be an elaborate fake, but we thought it looked pretty cool and it was worth sharing. Google will announce their new Android devices on October 29th, so we don’t have much longer to wait.


DiGi is offering the HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S III, Note and Note 10.1 from as low as RM699 with a special bundling with RM148/month commitment. The new DG Smart Plan special bundling of RM148/month offers 3GB of data and RM80 worth of calls/sms/mms each month which is tied to 24 months contract. In way, this bundling is actually a DG Smart Plan 68 (3GB) that’s bolt on with RM80 of extra credit.

During sign up, the special offer requires RM1,000 advance payment which is quite a lot. However if you’re a DiGi Corporate Employee Program customer with Auto Billing payment, the Advance payment is waived. On top of that, DiGi is offering extended warranty to Corporate customers which gives it a total of 2 years, except for HTC One X that’s already covered with 2 years warranty. For normal customers, the warranty can be extended at RM90 for Galaxy Note, RM115 for Galaxy S III and RM170 for Galaxy Note 10.1.

On October 29th, Google is expected to introduce a couple of new devices which include the overexposed LG based Nexus 4, 32GB version of the Nexus 7 and a larger 10″ Nexus tablet device. The Nexus 10 device is manufactured by Samsung and it is rumoured to be powered by Samsung’s very own Exynos 5250 Cortex A15 based dual-core processor at 1.7GHz and 2GB of RAM.

In terms of display, the 10 incher is said to be pushing massive 2560×1600 pixels resolution. That’s 299 ppi (pixels per inch), which is the highest pixel density display for a tablet. As comparison, the iPad with Retina display pushes 2048×1536 pixels which gives 264ppi in a 9.7″ screen.

Other rumoured details include cameras for both front and back, 16GB on-board storage, micro-USB, micro-HDMI, WiFi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and front facing dual-speakers. Just like the Nexus 4, there’s no microSD slot and it will be running on Android 4.2.

Somehow the Google Nexus naming convention is mimicking Samsung with a mixture of device generation and screen size references, which we are not a fan of. The Nexus 4 denotes 4th iteration of Nexus smart phones while the 7 & 10 denotes screen size. This would be rather confusing for consumers.


HTC released HTC One X+ with Jelly Bean 4.1.1 and Sense 4+ out of the box, Samsung update its flagship device Galaxy S III to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 as well. Which phone will be faster with the same OS ?. The benchmark tests used were ones that Android users would know of.

The Quadrant Standard tests the 3D graphics performance along with the CPU and I/O. SunSpider was used to test the browser, along with performance of JavaScript and Qualcomm's Vellamo was used to test mobile web performance, HMTL 5, the CPU performance and AnTuTu which tests the RAM, GPU, CPU and I/O performance.

In Quadrant the HTC One X+ took a score of 6068, which was 800 points over the Samsung Galaxy S III, which managed 5207. The One X+ also took the lead with CPU and I/O, however the Samsung won in the categories of memory and 3D graphics. In Sunspider the HTC One X+ won when it scored 1082.2ms compared to the 1215.4ms, in this case the lower score wins. Neither of the handsets matched the iPhone 5 results, which came in at 914.7ms.

In AnTuTu the HTC once again took over and scored a total of 12,945 and beat the Samsung Galaxy S3 in CPU, RAM and I/0. The S3 scored 12,082 overall and took the GPU category.


Now that Windows 8 has finally arrived in the market, it is time to check out how much will the new operating system cost for consumers. Turns out that the pricing for Malaysia is still the same as per what we reported earlier.

By that, we actually mean the existing Windows Upgrade Offer program which is for new PC owners to upgrade their Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro as well as the upgrade program for existing Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 users. Both promos will end on 31 January 2013 in which the pricing will then be changed to the much heftier standard pricing as what you can see in the summary below:

For those who are wondering, the Windows 8 Pro Pack is basically the upgrade pack for a standard Windows 8 which will give users access to the additional features that are exclusively available on Windows 8 Pro such as data protection, Remote Desktop connection and domain join. On top of that, users will also receive Windows Media Centre together with the pack.

Looking at the standard pricing of the operating system, we got to say that it is pretty high to our liking although the promo pricing are rather good. Hence, if you planning to obtain Windows 8 for your PC, we reckoned that there is no better time to do that other than now.


Alright, we’ve all seen a few videos from around the webernets pitting the iPhone 5 against the Samsung Galaxy S3 in a series of drop tests. The results were almost always the same — when it comes to droppings, it’s really tough to beat Apple’s solid construction and superior build quality. But there’s still one challenge left untested: will it blend?

As they so often do, Blendtec’s YouTube channel set to find out the answer to this question, placing both the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 inside separate blenders where they were sliced, diced, chopped and screwed into nothing more than smartphone mulch. Which device came out on top? Well, the answer may surprise you. Take a look.

So as it turns out, Samsung’s mostly plastic construction on the S3 — a common complaint amongst Android enthusiasts — proved more resilient than the iPhone’s glass and metal. Who’da thunk it? Well, as you’ve no doubt learned from the history of the automobile, this is why we went from metal, to plastic bumpers. Aside from trying to save a few pennies, I’m beginning to understand why some Android OEM’s prefer plastic to metal.


Samsung Electro-Mechanics has just kicked off mass production of an extremely thin wireless charging kit for mobile devices, and that means that future smartphones like its Galaxy S series might not need any cords to juice up.

The Wireless charing kit will be available for Samsung GALAXY S III and Samsung GALAXY Note II users very soon, All you Need to do is to put your samsung phone in a special case (included in the wireless cahring kit) then place your phone close to the dock and it will start charging, No cables, full charge faster.

What makes Samsung's wireless charging solution stand out is the fact that charging coil is 40% thinner, and is attached to the inside of the battery cover. This would allow Samsung to keep on making very thin devices, but beef them up with wireless charging capabilities.


Today, We can Confirm that Samsung Nexus 10 tablet is going to be revealed on 29,October Google's Android event, The Nexus 10's User Guide has been leaked showing the device from the back, carrying "Samsung" logo and some other details.

The device will pack a 10-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600, allowing for a 300ppi pixel density that would put the panel right in Retina display territory. It will be the first tablet to be powered by Android 4.2 that will support Multiple User Accounts which allows separate users to use a tablet with their own apps, themes and settings.

Stay Tuned for the Official Reveal of the Device Next Monday 29,October.


Google is ready to unveil the Nexus 4 on October 29th, and pretty much every detail about the device has already leaked out by now. Today a new Nexus render from @evleaks confirms a minor detail that we first reported on a couple weeks ago. A brief hands-on report we shared said the device had “Nexus written on the back like the Nexus 7″ and it appears that will remain with the final release.

Our source said, “The ‘X’ [in the word Nexus] is in four colors” and we provided a mockup image of what the final design could look like. Today’s image shows the Nexus logo on the back in a single color, so either design could turn out to be true. Some have also pointed out that today’s render was Photoshopped, but it looks like someone just inserted an Android home screen as a place holder. We are fairly confident this is what the final design will look like and @evleaks has proven to be a reliable source in the past.


We usually wouldn’t praise smartphone chargers, but Andru happens to be one of the funnest, best-looking ones we have seen. Android fans love buying accessories and collectibles that feature Google’s little green robot, so this could very well be your next purchase.

It has been available in green for some time, but Gen has decided to get playful and release a black version. They are calling it Andru Dark. Like its green brother, this little guy features a stand (which doubles as Andy’s feet), light-up eyes that glow red when charging and amber when on standby, movable arms and a 1.2 meter cable.

It is not necessarily cheap at $25, but with chargers averaging at around $20 from carriers and retailers, it is also not the worst deal. I know I would be willing to pay a bit extra to have one of these guys “in charge”.

The black version should be available by October 11, while the green one can be purchased now. You can get them from the official site or from Amazon, so go get them!

We’ve just seen an interesting leak from a post in our forums, that the new iPhone 5 will be launched here in Malaysia much sooner than expected. How much sooner, you ask? October 19, if a local Malay language blog is to be believed.

They leaked an email yesterday that local telco operator Maxis will launch its iPhone 5 campaign starting October 19. While the email states that the launch date will be on the 19th, it looks like a registration of interest (ROI) will begin shortly prior to that date.

As for pricing, the email also states that it will be more or less the same as the iPhone 4S at launch, with the difference being “plus or minus RM100”.

Unfortunately, the leaked email did not state the iPhone 5 launches for the other telcos in the country. However, we will be bringing you up to date if we hear anything on that front.


The green pigs have had their moment in the sun: it's time for the Angry Birds to come back. Rovio Mobile has posted a teaser of a collaboration between its frustrated avians and Star Wars that will get a grand reveal on October 8th at Toys R Us' Times Square location in New York City. No clear giveaways exist as to what's coming, although Rovio is promising animations, comics and other material in the weeks ahead -- we imagine it means more than a toy line, as unique as that can be. But does it mean an Angry Birds Space add-on that goes well beyond the Martian landscape, an entirely new game or something else altogether? We've asked the company for more details and will let you know if we're given more information. In the meantime, get ready for what's likely to be a geek culture explosion.


Word has it that one of the next upcoming Google Nexus device will be coming from LG which will be based on its flagship LG Optimus G. Although it shares similar hardware, the design of the Nexus device will be totally different which possibly maintain the same curved design of the Galaxy Nexus.

Among the specs revealed include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of on-board storage. The display would be utilising LG’s 1280×768 TrueHD IPS screen and there’s a 8MP shooter at the back. The next Nexus is said to be running on Android 4.2 and it is expected to be revealed next month. What’s new with the Optimus based Nexus is it supports wireless charging. The downside for this device would be its non-removable battery and there’s no microSD expansion slot.

Earlier chatter also suggests that the LG Nexus device would have some water resistant capabilities but this is yet to be confirmed. While LG isn’t favoured for its speed of software updates, perhaps a Nexus device this time might attract some new consideration for their smart phone.

It has been a year since the Galaxy Nexus was revealed and replacement is finally due. It was earlier rumoured that we could be seeing as much as 3 Nexus phones from different manufactures – LG, Sony & Samsung. Samsung’s upcoming Nexus device is said to be a bumped up version from the existing Galaxy Nexus with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, better cameras (8MP back, 1.9MP front) and the inclusion of a microSD expansion slot.


Do you talk more, or text more? Well, it doesn’t matter because whatever type of user you are, there’s a plan for that. Maxis recently introduced two new postpaid plans – TalkMore 28 and TextMore 28 that is pretty self explanatory. For RM28 a month, TalkMore 28 will get you 200 minutes of talk time and 100 SMS to all operators while TextMore 28 gets you 100 minutes and 200 SMS. Each of the bundle is worth RM40.

On top of the new postpaid plans, Maxis is also introducing a new phone bundle that can get you a brand new smartphone from as low as RM56/month; the devices included in the bundle are HTC Desire C, Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 and BlackBerry Curve 9320. All you need to do is sign up for either one of the new postpaid plan together with an Internet Plan; with this offer, the telco is also offering a new data plan at only 200MB for RM28/month. Hit the break for the details or visit Maxis for more.
