CM 9 stable is available to all supported devices

The well-known Android modded team CyanogenMod announced that the latest version CM 9 stable is starting to rolling out slowly,for all supported devices including Samsung Galaxy S series,Galaxy Nexus,Nexus S,SE Xperia Neo etc.

More firmwares will be listed up after completing the processes on the server.

Meanwhile,as Android 4.1 Jelly Bean had been released by Google weeks ago,CyanogenMod will start to focus mainly on CM 10 which will be based on Jelly Bean,perhaps only keeping bug fixes work on CM 9.

So if you have a device without official support on Android 4.0,you may try to get CM 9 if your device is supported.From my experience,it could run quite well in most of time.Cheers!

Google Translate gets much smarter

Google Translate gets the latest update today.In this version,it starts to support translating the texts in a picture.

Yes,you just have to take a photo and brush the text and you could get the meaning in your own language(currently only available to English,Spanish,Chinese and part of the Arabic).

Once you highlight the texts you want to translate,you could get your result almost immediately.It’s really great when reading some documents with professional vocabulary or travelling in a city where you’re not familiar with their languages.

Of course,it’s not the only thing Google Translate can do.

With Google Translate you can:

• Translate text between 64 languages
• Translate by speaking the text instead of typing it (17 languages)
• Use camera to take a picture and brush text to translate (available on Android 2.3 and above).
• Listen to your translations spoken aloud (40 languages)
• Communicate with another person using speech-to-speech translation in Conversation Mode (ALPHA, 14 languages)
• Display translations in full screen mode to make it easier for others nearby to read
• Star your favorite translations for quick access even when you’re offline
• Access your translation history even when you’re offline
• Spell out the translation of non-Latin script languages (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, etc..) in Latin characters to read it phonetically (e.g. Pinyin, Romaji)
• View additional dictionary results for single words or short phrases
• Push the handwriting button and simply write what you want to translate

The latest version of Google Translate 2.5 could only run on Android 2.3 and above.You are able to download it at Google Play store.
