USP: Lenovo A2010's Mediatek Chipset:


MediaTek's MT6735 SoC beats the Snapdragon 410 chipset in benchmark tests:




"A new report published today reveals some of the specs for the MediaTek MT6735 SoC. The chipset was introduced late last year and features a quad-core processor that has a clock speed topping out at 1.3GHz. The MT6735 is paired with the Mali-T720 GPU, which can support a screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution.

The MT6735 does have a couple of variants. The MT6735M and the MT6735P also come with the Mali-T720 GPU, but clocked at a lower speed. The former has a GPU that weighs in at 600MHz meaning that it can handle screens with a resolution no higher than 720 x 1280. The latter chip has a GPU clocked at 400MHz which allows it to handle screens carrying a resolution no higher than 540 x 960. All three chips support full-mode base bands such as FDD / TDD / TD-SCDMA / WCDMA / CDMA2000 and GSM.

The MT6735 SoC went through the Geekbench and GFXBench tests along with the Snapdragon 410 SoC. The Qualcomm chip also includes a quad-core CPU, but with a maximum clock speed of 1.2GHz. It employs the Adreno 306 GPU for graphics. The Geekbench test gave the MT6735 CPU a higher score in both single-core and multi-core tests. The GFXBench Manhattan and T-Rex tests revealed faster frame rates for the Mali-T720 GPU than the Adreno 306 GPU."

Huawei's LiteOS, To Play Central Role In Internet Of Things



China's Huawei Technologies is ramping up its claim on the Internet of Things market with a new operating system, Huawei announced LiteOS on Wednesday. This operating system is designed to run on products that have traditionally not connected to the Internet, but now they will. LiteOS is exceedingly small in size of 10KB and requires no configuration on the user's part, it was said at Huawei Network Congress 2015, held in Beijing. The LiteOS platform can also work on everything from wearables to connected vehicles.

The Internet of Things has quickly become the latest buzz of technology industry. Internet of Things is a movement whereby "dumb" products that sit offline and have no real communication with the user, manufacturer or outside world will be turned into "smart" products. In order to achieve that goal, companies are slowly bundling Internet connectivity into their products and doing everything from pushing updates to them to allowing them to communicate with other products in the home. Smart products namely, Google's Nest smart thermostat, is one of the most prominent examples. Refrigerators, washers and dryers, and other home products are also increasingly adding Internet connectivity, along with cars and other products.

Apple and Google both have home automation platforms and just this month, Samsung announced plans to produce processors that would power newly smart devices. In January, Intel said that it, too, would produce processors to cater to the "delightful chaos" of Internet of Things. Meanwhile, IBM is investing $3 billion over four years to build out its own Internet of Things division.

Huawei's move is to profit from the software needs of those products. Unlike Intel and Samsung, which want to handle components, Huawei is most concerned with being the driver for connectivity through its LiteOS operating system. China-based company during its press conference in Beijing said that its Internet of Things offerings will cater to companies around the world. Huawei also announced plans to build out its "Agile Network Architecture" to provide all of the infrastructure companies would need to build out connectivity in their devices. At the core of that effort are two services it's calling Agile IoT Gateway and Agile Controller. Those services, the company says, will reduce the workload that will be placed on wireless data networks that would need to accommodate the explosion in Internet-connected devices. Indeed, Huawei predicts that by 2025, 100 billion connections will be generated around the world.

Huawei's Internet of Things service is available now to vendors. The company didn't announce any partners by name, but it did say that it "has been involved in a number of in-depth technological collaborations" over the last few years. Huawei expects those connections to continue and expand over time.


Olloclip, Ultrawide-Angle Active Lens to iPhone Camera Lens



Olloclip's latest iPhone camera lens will help you capture bigger frame of a scene in a single shot.
Olloclip, the mobile-photography-accessory maker is adding the Active Lens which is an ultrawide-angle lens that expands the iPhone camera's field-of-view giving you something to what you'd find on an action cam like a GoPro. For when you want to get more up-close-and-personal shots, the opposite side of the Active has a 2x telephoto lens. While that won't bring you much closer to distant subjects, it narrows the iPhone's lens to make it better for portraits.

Like the rest of the lenses in the iPhone 6/6 Plus lineup, the Active Lens slides onto the top of the camera so the lenses can be positioned over the rear- or front-facing cameras, so you can get more people into a FaceTime chat or group self-portraits.

Also like the other lenses it sells, you'll need to use a bare iPhone to attach the Active or buy one of OlloClip cases designed to protect the device while letting you slide the lens on and off. The lens comes with three storage pendants for quickly clipping it onto something like a keychain or wearing it around your neck when not in use.


Flow: Microsoft's Latest App, Turns E-Mails Into Chats




Microsoft is working on a new smartphone app called Flow that turns e-mails into an instant message-style conversation, according to a leaked document. 

"No subject lines, salutations, or signatures" are required in a Flow-powered email conversation Microsoft promises, in a leaked product description found on Microsoft's website.

Basically, judging from the description, it's an email program that looks like WhatsApp (or Facebook Messenger or Google Hangouts, et cetera et cetera). 

Just select an email address — any email address — and you're talking. To you, it'll look like you're having the same kind of conversation you get from your favorite chat apps. 

But it's all email working behind the scenes, meaning that you can use Flow chat with literally anybody, no matter what kind of device or apps they have. If they don't have Flow, it'll just look like another email. Maybe a rude email, given that it wouldn't have a subject line, salutation, or signature, but an email regardless. 

And the Flow app will only show you your Flow conversations, according to that product description. so you won't get inundated with all your emails while you're using it, 

This is not a new idea: A startup called MailTime offers a very similar kind of app. 

But for Microsoft, it's part of its brave new strategy of building new, business-friendly mobile apps that people actually like to use. 

Microsoft may have bought Acompli and turned it into the highly-praised Outlook for iOS, and it may have bought Sunrise to give users one of the most beautiful calendar apps ever, but this one is all Microsoft. 

Slide i701: iBall Launches Cheapest Windows 8.1 Tablet




 iBall has launched Slide i701 tablet that runs Windows 8.1. Priced at Rs 4,999, it's the cheapest Windows tablet available at the moment. 

The tablet will be available online and through physical retail stores starting 21 May. iBall will bundle a free back cover, HDMI cable and three protective covers with the tablet. 

The Slide i701 sports a 7-inch IPS HD display (720x1280p) and is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor and 1GB RAM. It comes with 16GB internal storage and a microSD card slot that supports cards of up to 32GB.

The tablet features a 2MP rear camera and a VGA front facing camera. In terms of connectivity, it supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, micro HDMI and micro USB. 3G connectivity through a USB dongle is also supported. The tablet coms with a 3200Ah battery. 


Google Maps Experience Is Coming To Android Wear




The full Google Maps experience is headed to your wrist. A series of updates to the Google Maps app and Android Wear seem to have added a new style of navigation, where the screen on a smartwatch is taken up by an entire map, showing your location and providing directional views using the compass.
However, before anyone gets too excited, it’s not a seamless, perfect experience just yet, and may not even be available on your device at all. According to a Reddit post, the new feature comes alive when your watch is running Android Wear 5.1.1, and version 9.9 of Google Maps is installed on the smartphone to which it’s connected.

Related: Android Wear vs. Apple Watch

Officially, Android Wear 5.1.1 is only available on the LG Watch Urbane, but there are ways to install it on other smartwatches, and one of the posters on Reddit has it setup on an Asus ZenWatch. At the time of writing, our Watch Urbane is all ready to go, but Google Maps is still at version 9.8.1, which means the feature isn’t enabled yet. It has got Google Maps operating on the Urbane, but says that while it looks great, it’s not working as one would hope. Apparently, it provides a top-down view for Maps, which can be scrolled around, and a pinch will zoom in on details. A set of zoom in/out buttons work in the same way, plus it all works in ambient mode too, when the map shows as a black and white outline on the screen.

Sadly, the app is plagued by crashes and instability, making it frustrating to use at the moment. Remember, the update isn’t available for everyone, and may simply be in the late stages of testing before Maps 9.9 is sent out on general release.

Apple Buys GPS Firm Coherent Navigation



Apple has picked up a business with a known track record in navigation.
Coherent Navigation is (or was) a Global Positioning System (GPS)-related company started in 2008, according to MacRumors, which firstbroke news of the purported purchase by Appleon Sunday. The company's website no longer is accessible, while its LinkedIn page says that it has ceased operations at this time. The page lists it as a privately held company with one to 10 employees.
Apple itself confirmed the acquisition on Sunday through the following statement sent to the New York Times and others: "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans." Coherent Navigation's strong suit is high-precision navigation systems, or High Integrity GPS. Coherent Navigation combines signals from traditional mid-Earth orbit GPS satellites with those of low-Earth satellites from global satellite communications company Iridium, as described by 9to5Mac. Iridium's satellite system provides voice and data coverage for phones and other devicesacross the Earth's surface, ZDNet explained. As such, Coherent Navigation's GPS is designed to offer a higher degree of accuracy, stronger signals and greater resistance to interference as compared with other GPS products. So why would Apple buy this business? A few clues may shed light on the reasons. The LinkedIn profile for Paul Lego lists him as the CEO of Coherent Navigation from April 2013 to present but also a member of the Apple Maps team from January 2015 to present. That would imply that Apple may use the company's technology to further enhance its Maps app, which was initially dinged after its 2012 launch for inaccuracies, omissions and other faults. Since then, Apple has worked to improve the app to compete with rival Google Maps. Other employees of the San Francisco Bay Area company have also jumped over to Apple, as noted by ZDNet. The LinkedIn page for co-founder William Bencze shows him as working for Apple on wireless technologies and location/motion engineering since April. The page for fellow Coherent Navigation co-founder Brent Ledvina reveals that he's also been at Apple since April and has been working in the wireless area on location technologies. So Apple may be using the technology of Coherent Navigation and the know-how of its former employees in a few different areas, but all designed to advance its own mapping and location services. With the same goal in mind, Apple has purchased other mapping and navigation firms over the past several years, including PlaceBase in 2009, Locationary in 2013 and Hopstop also in 2013.


Xiaomi Opens Its Online Accessory Shop In The US and Europe



Xiaomi was beta-launching its online accessory store in the UK this week, but now it's become clear that other regions are also being supported. The Mi Store will be available at two separate time slots: 7PM PT/ 10PM ET (May 18th) for customers in the US, followed by 1PM CET (May 19th) for people in the UK, France and Germany. As we reported before, this is a limited launch that will allow the Chinese phone maker to tentatively test consumer demand in these markets. Only four products will be sold -- a pair of headphones, a couple of portable batteries and its Mi Band fitness tracker -- and they'll be available in limited quantities. So if you're interested in being an early Xiaomi adopter, it's best to get in as early as possible. If the store is successful, who knows, we might not have to wait too long before its smartphones and tablets are also available in the West.
