BlackBerry Launches Its New Passport Smartphone

Wednesday 24th September 2014 by Julien Guiguet in BlackBerry.

BlackBerry revealed the Passport smartphone today. With a 4.5 inch screen and a touch keyboard, the Passport sets itself apart from the current smartphones on the market. In preparation for today’s launch we have been setting up our BlackBerry Passport accessories for availability once the first phones ship..

BlackBerry is no longer trying to primarily focus on acquiring new users to their smartphone, but to win back their core business customers. The Passport’s large square face is aimed at business customers who need to read and manage documents straight from their smartphones. With the BlackBerry Passport, you can see a full desktop web page on the screen. Pages load quickly and render exceptionally, making web pages easier to read.

 

 

The BlackBerry Passport comes with the familiar touch keyboard. The physical keyboard gives more typing accuracy and leaves more screen space for viewing. It is also responsive to touch so you can scroll web pages, flick to type or slide along the keys to move the cursor. Not sure if the physical keyboard will be as necessary as it was when BlackBerry first introduced it to market.

The battery life on the Passport is quite impressive with 3450 mAh battery and up to 30 hours of battery life.

BlackBerry also introduced a new application, BlackBerry Blend, to help professionals work more efficiently by connecting a BlackBerry smartphone with the person’s computer or tablet.

iPhone 6 announced: 4.7″ and 5.5″ models and accessories

Tuesday 9th September 2014 by Julien Guiguet in Apple, iPhone.

 

Today Apple unveiled their new iPhone 6. As rumors proved, two models debuted, first the iPhone 6, measures 4.7 inches, while the other spans a phablet-sized 5.5 inches known as the iPhone 6 Plus. The new iPhones include a faster processor, contactless NFC payments, an improved camera and many other upgrades.

 

Design

 

These are the thinnest iPhones ever made.

 

The most notable difference between the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6 is undoubtedly that of size. The display of the iPhone 5S measured just four inches across the diagonal, but the iPhone 6 is available with a 4.7-inch or 5.5-inch screen. That’s a massive jump for Apple, who just two years ago were shipping a flagship phone with a 3.5-inch screen.

Apple are including a one-handed mode to alleviate some of the ergonomic downsides of these larger displays. The larger height and length of the iPhone has also allowed Apple to shrink the width of the iPhone to just 7mm, while maintaining the same weight.

Size isn’t the only difference between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5. The new phones also include a noticeably thicker border between the caps on top and bottom and the main rear panel. These are intended to improve reception, giving signals a place to escape the metal body. Other details include a lock button on the right hand side instead of the top, a circular flash and a camera lens that protrudes from the chassis.

 

Specifications

iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display. iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch display.

The iPhone 6 will include a higher resolution 960 x 1704 pixel IPS display, which as mentioned earlier will measure 4.7 or 5.5 inches. Inside, you’ll find a new Apple A8 64-bit processor, 1 GB of RAM and at least 16GB of internal storage (up to 128GB). The whole thing is powered with a 1810mAh battery – small by Android standards, but enough for Apple to claim the same battery life as ever. There’s an upgraded 8-megapixel camera on the rear, and a 2-megapixel camera up front for all your selfie needs.

 

Features

iPhone 6 has an 8MP iSight camera, 1.5µ pixels, ƒ/2.2 aperture. And an all-new sensor. See how much faster and easier it is to pay with Apple Pay.

 

One of the biggest new features of the iPhone 6 is contactless payments. Like some bank cards in the UK, the NFC chip built into the phone allow you to pay for purchase in stores with a tap onto a point-of-sale terminal. The feature is safeguarded through the TouchID fingerprint sensor. Apple have partnered with Visa, MasterCard and American Express for contactless payments, which appears in a upgraded Passbook iOS app.

The iPhone 6 launches with iOS 8, with includes a lot of new features that bridge the feature gap between iOS and Android. Messages now includes multimedia content, third-party keyboards are now possible, and Apple have built a fitness app called Health which interfaces with iPhone sensors and the Apple Watch. More Android-like features include improved notifications (which can now be actioned directly from their dropdown menu or the lock screen) and widgets (in the notification center).

 

Accessories

New Apple-designed silicone cases.

 

The iPhone has always enjoyed a wide range of third-party accessories, and the iPhone 6 is no different. We’ve already begun to add both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus accessories to our virtual shelves, and we’ll add dozens if not hundreds of additional accessories over the next few weeks. These range from cases and covers to chargers, in-car accessories like car chargers and car holders, battery packs, desk stands and screen protectors.

Most people will pick up at least one iPhone 6 case for their new phone, and we’ll be well covered here. The iPhone 6 cases section of our shop already includes nearly 100 items, and will only grow from there. There are slightly fewer iPhone 6 Plus cases available, but these too will grow in number. Expect cases from all the biggest names, including OtterBox, LifeProof, Spigen, Moshi, Zenus, Belkin and many more.

 

 

Samsung Gear VR: Full Immersion Virtual Reality Headset for Galaxy Note 4

Tuesday 9th September 2014 by Julien Guiguet in Mobile Accessories, Samsung.

The Samsung Gear VR is a Note 4 exclusive accessory based on Oculus Rift’s hardware. Gear VR is specifically designed to be a peripheral device that works with your Note 4. Your Note 4 actually acts as the visual interface of the Gear VR, as you need to put it in front of the goggle-like accessory.

The Gear VR works exclusively with the dedicated VR player in the Galaxy Note 4 and is engineered to work perfectly with this software. To engage in virtual reality with the Gear VR, you insert the Note 4 into the mask and once docked, the phone automatically enters VR mode. The Gear VR uses the 5.7 inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy Note 4 providing stunning and engaging visuals for full-immersion games and movies.

For content, Samsung has inked a partnership with Oculus that will make games and movies downloadable for the Gear VR setup through the Oculus Store. Not all Oculus content will be immediately compatible with the Note 4/Gear VR; games and videos will need to be optimized for mobile in order to work.

The Gear VR will be available this fall, and is already available for pre-order at Mobile Fun.
