New Z1 Trailer Released by Xperia to Give us a Nice Peek

The Xperia Z1 hasn't really caught my eye but it seems that completely leaking your new device before you even launch it is the way firsts. In this treat from Sony, we get a teaser video for the device that shows off almost the entire phone.

The all revealing video shows off the crazy ass 20MP camera with a Sony G lens and circular power button on the side. Another nice touch is the dedicated camera button. So any instagram hipsters and photo happy people should be pleased as these buttons have disappeared throughout the evolution of phones.

Looking at the design of the phone, it seems it has a glass back (this is often used to make your phone look and feel more expensive). Seeing as the phone is submerged in water at one point, it appears the Xperia Z1 will be just as waterproof as the Z model.

So you can see why I have turned a blind eye to this but the post felt necessary so there you go. The video is somewhere in this post if you want it.

Samsung Officially Sends Out Jelly Bean Update to Jelly Bean via Kies or OTA

Hello Everyone!

I was unable to post last week as I had been too busy, but here is a positive post for you to enjoy!

It's been a long time but Android 4.1.2 has finally arrived for the phone that began the whole ''half phone, half tablet'' malarky. The original  Samsung Galaxy Note. The Jelly Bean update brings a number of improvements to the first phablet, with a brand new Nature UX UI that will help it look and feel more like the sequel phone. It'll also get features such as Multi-Window, Page Buddy, Smart Rotation and the awesome Google Now.

The update will roll out in phases depending on your country or carrier and is available via Kies or OTA.

Any opinions on this article? Do you have any news suggestions? Please comment or contact me via the Facebook page, my Twitter page or the Google+ page

Don't worry, I will post about Blackberry 10 and PS4 rumours when I have time to do an in-depth post!

Google Reveals the Nexus 4 Avaliable for the 13th

Hey Guys!

Google has officially revealed the highly anticipated LG Nexus 4 over on the Play Store, boasting wireless charging capabilities and the latest version of Android Jelly Bean (version 4.2). Before you get confused, I would like to point out that it is a phone and not a tablet!

It will be sold as an 8GB version for £239 and a 16GB version for £279 on November 13 from the offical Play Store. It will be unlocked and without a contract, with first availability for customers in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada.

The Nexus 4, along with the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10, will all run Android version 4.2. It includes a new “Photo Sphere” feature, which allows users to capture images that the company says “are literally larger than life”. It essentially means that users can stitch photographs not only from left to right for panoramic images, but up and down too to create stunning 360-degree images. Google says any “Photo Sphere” can then be uploaded to Google+ or added to Google Maps. (Sounds a bit Appleish). It will also have Google Now!

There is a promotional vid below for all new three tablet sizes, the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. With the specs below that

Adobe Confirms No More Flash Player for Mobile Devices

Hey Guys!
Flash Player for mobile browsers was released by Adobe about two years ago now and since then more and more mobile devices have been able to access rich media content online. Also, Flash has been available for desktop users for almost 10 years now. 
Although Flash has had great success, HTML 5 has been installed on the most recent mobile phones and some phones are exclusive the HTML 5. This makes a perfect solution for deploying and creating content in the browser irrespective of the mobile platform. 
In a statement released by Adobe, they have stated that following the release of the upcoming Flash Player 11.1, Adobe would finish developing Flash Player in the browser and will focus on ensuring that all the major app stores allow developers to package native apps with Adobe AIR. However they added that they would  allow those who have the licensed source code to continue developing and release their own implementations of the software. All existing device configurations will continue to receive security updates and also critical bug fixes.

Adobe has stated that it will continue to collaborate with some of the biggest names in the mobile software industry, RIM, Microsoft, Apple and Google to help the HTML5 innovation in the future on their mobile web browsers.

So what do you think. Do you think HTML 5 can replace the Flash Player? Will people develop their own implementations? Or just leave it? Leave your answers in the commets!

Energizer XP1000 Review!

Hey Guys, this is my first ever review and its on the Energizer XP1000 portable battery charger!

The Looks!
The Energizer XP 1000 is ultra thin and light! It has a mini USB port to charge it, and fortunately is had 2 led lights so you can tell how much battery is left. It comes with 4 tips: iPod, Mini USB, Bigger mini USB and the Nokia Charger. It also has a tip guarantee where you can order up to 2 tips per year if you need a new one.

How to use it!
It is a very basic device with a USB to mini USB cable with a place for the tips. You can use a mini USB charger to charge the battery pack or plug the USB cable given into a laptop or PC and put the mini one into the XP1000. You can tell if its charged by pressing the button next to the mini USB port and a green light should appear, if not a red one. You can charge the your selected device by connecting the cable to the charger and putting the tip into its place. It should stay charged for up to 1 year.
