Nokia Here on iOS

Nokia Here is a navigation app originally designed on Windows Phone,however,Nokia now has decided to expand it into iOS and Android free of charge.I believe a lot of iOS device users will definitely like it because Apple maps is still quite lousy in a number of places.

Nokia Here supports both iPhone and iPad with iOS 4.3 or later.The map is based on well-known NAVTEQ’s resources.It also supports community map in some countries so that users could add missing information by their own,updating the maps faster and more accurate.

The details of the features:

Upon my personal experience,I found Waze actually has more complete road information in Malaysia.Anyway,as Nokia Here is just born,it supposes to grow to be better in the coming future.

The Android version of Nokia Here is still under developing.I hope once it covers all major mobile platforms with more users,the map can become a strong competitor to Waze.

Nexus 4,Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 get released

Because of Hurricane Sandy,Google cancelled the event to officially release Nexus 4,the new flagship Android phone in Nexus series;Nexus 7,with lower prices and bigger storage;Nexus 10,the 10 inch Android tablet with the latest functions and powerful hardware.However,all have been pushed into Google Play Store online.

Nexus 4 is the smallest one among all new products,however,it has a powerful heart.This flagship Android phone is built by LG,working with the latest 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor and 2GB RAM.

The 4.7 inch 1280X768(320ppi) display screen is really amazing.It’s tough as it is covered and protected by scratch resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2.

The 8MP camera will never let you lose a scene.It now supports 360° panoramas with the new feature in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean called ‘Photo Sphere’.

After all,the most amazing thing is about the price-8GB version selling at US$299 while 16GB version selling at US$349.I think that is really a bargain as It even supports DC-HSPA+(42Mbps).

iPad mini,4th Generation iPad and more…

After weeks of rumors,iPad mini finally landed to the stage hours ago.

iPad mini is said to be the smaller size of iPad,but not less powerful.It also has around 10 hours battery life and HD FaceTime and iSight cameras.As its smaller size(7.9 inch display),now it could be held in one hand(of course,it should be a big hand.)

iPad mini is only 7.2mm thickness(23% thinner than iPad) and 308g weight (53% lighter than iPad).It supports dual band(2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz) Wireless N technology(up to 150Mbps) and has the option to support cellular data network(such as HSPA, HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA/LTE).

The new line of iMac gives a lot of shocks to us,especially its thickness.The thinnest side is only 5mm.Yes,you didn’t misread it.

There are two sizes of display to choose:21.5 inch(1920×1080) and 27 inch(2560×1440) with different specs.The latest iMac is working on Fusion Drive technology,making a mixture of 128GB SSD and 1-3TB traditional hard disk perform closer to be a pure SSD.
