HTC Titan II with 16 Megapixel Camera and LTE Headed To AT&T

htc titan ii

The rumoured LTE Windows Phone from HTC, which some might have seen floating around the internet as the Bresson, has been officially announced as the HTC Titan II. Apart from a slightly modified back design with curved elements and an LTE radio, it packs a massive 16 megapixel camera. Yes, you read that right – we’re a bit afraid that 16 megapixel on such a small sensor will actually degrade instead of improve picture quality, but are definitely open for a positive surprise. As for video recording, there’s no 1080p support, so you’ll have to stick with 720p.

The other specs remain unchanged from the original HTC Titan: a big 4.7″ WVGA screen, 1.5GHz Snapdragon single-core processor . . . READ ON »

Stop That CES Nonsense, Buy A Phone That Lasts 15 Years On A Single AA Battery

spareone

No, seriously. Stop obsessing over that all that spec nonsense coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show right now, and get down to earth again. A newly introduced phone, SpareOne, one-ups every other phone ever made in the most important specification: battery life. It lasts up to 15 years (that’s 5475 days, not counting leap days) in standby, and let’s you talk for 10 hours, drawing its juice from a single AA battery. And since it’s designed with emergency use in mind, it even includes a flashlight.

You can make calls, without worrying about your battery.

What more could you want from a phone?

Acer’s Next-Gen Tablet to Pack Full 1080p Resolution, Quad-Core

eng

In 2012, tablets are going to evolve to a great extent thanks to quad-core processors (like with the Tegra 3 found on the Transformer Prime), and now, as we’re learning, with full HD 1080p HD displays. Acer will be among the first to usher in this next wave of tablets with their upcoming Iconia Ice Cream Sandwich tablet. It’ll pack a Tegra 3 CPU clocked at 1.3GHz per core coupled with 1GB of RAM, plus full 1920×1080 resolution on a 10.1″ panel, making for a pixel density of 218ppi, which is very high for a tablet (as a frame of reference, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 with its 1280×800 panel has a pixel density of just 149ppi). No word on pricing or availability.
