BlackBerry Q10 launch in UK soon

When BlackBerry announced their BlackBerry Z10 smartphone, which has been available for a while now in the UK, they also announced another device, the BlackBerry Q10 and it looks like the handset will be launching in the UK shortly.
There has been no exact launch date for the BlackBerry Q10 in the UK, one mobile retailer has now listed the Q10 on the coming soon section of their website which means that the device should arrive shortly.The BlackBerry Q10 is powered by RIM’s new BlackBerry 10 OS, and it features a dual core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built in storage, there is also a 3.1 inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels and a QWERTY keyboard.
Other specifications on the BlackBerry Q10 include the same cameras as on the BlackBerry Z10, up front there is a 2 megapixel camera with 3x digital zoom and the ability to record HD video in 720p, on the back of the device is an 8 megapixel camera with auto-focus, 5x digital zoom and full HD video recording in 1080p.

Closure of Google Reader prompts web storm

A decision by Google to close its popular Reader, which allowed users to easily follow updates from around the web, has sparked a storm of criticism by devoted fans of the service.
Google announced the move late on Wednesday as part of a “spring-cleaning” strategy pushed by founder and chief executive Larry Page to cull non-essential projects at the web software giant.

The company announced a shake up of its top ranks on Wednesday with Android chief Andy Rubin stepping aside in favour of Sundar Pichai, boss of the company’s Chrome browser and operating system. Google broke up its mapping and commerce unit, with executive Jeff Huber moving to research division Google X, which is working on projects like Google Glass and the company’s self-driving cars.
Urs Holze, senior vice-president of technical infrastructure, said the decision was made to close down Google Reader because it had been steadily losing users over the years as people switched to Facebook and Twitter to keep track of web updates.
“It’s been a long time since we have had this rate of change — it probably hasn’t happened since the birth of personal computing 40 years ago,” he wrote. “To make the most of these opportunities, we need to focus - otherwise we spread ourselves too thin and lack impact.” Within hours of the announcement, online petitions calling on Google to reverse the decision had attracted thousands of signatures, including one on online petition site that had been signed by more than 63,000 people by midday Thursday.
“Our confidence in Google’s other products - Gmail, YouTube, and yes, even Plus - requires that we trust you,” wrote petition organizer Dan Lewis. “This is about us using your product because we love it, because it makes our lives better, and because we trust you not to nuke it.” Users took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
“Google’s shutdown of #Reader is a painful but important reminder of how much time we invest into platforms we neither own nor control,” said one user.

How people might misuse Google Glass

A video has been posted online that echoes concerns about the introduction of Google Glass, the web giant’s augmented reality spectacles.

The video shows a man on a first date using a version Google Glass to find out information about the person he is talking to, take photos of her, and even watching sport when he is bored with the conversation.
Whilst the video is clearly a spoof, it chimes with worries about wearable technology that can shoot video, take pictures and broadcast whatever the user sees.
The glasses, which are due to go on sale towards the end of this year, contain a battery, a tiny computer, a camera and a wireless link.

They give the wearer a “heads up display” which they can activate using simple voice or finger commands.
US blogger Mark Hurst, writing on, says: “Anywhere you go in public – any store, any sidewalk, any bus or subway – you’re liable to be recorded.”
He continues: “Now add in facial recognition and the identity database that Google is building within Google Plus …[and] the speech-to-text software that Google already employs … any audio in a video could, technically speaking, be converted to text, tagged to the individual who spoke it, and made fully searchable within Google’s search index.”
Joshua Topolsky, an technology journalist who is one of the few to have tried out Google Glass, wrote on about how he wore them as he was followed by a film crew into Starbucks. Staff asked the crew to stop filming, but he “kept the Glass's video recorder going, all the way through."
Google co-founder Sergey Brin clearly doesn’t share these concerns, instead predicting that the glasses will give people a new, more natural way of interacting with each other digitally.
Sergey Brin on the New York subway wearing Google Glass
He recently told the Technology, Education and Design (TED) conference in Los Angeles that using the glasses was preferable to walking around hunched over a smartphone.
“Is this the way you’re meant to interact with other people,” he asked. “It’s kind of emasculating. Is this what you’re meant to do with your body?” 

Top Ten Tablets

Apple iPad Mini
From £269
Apple’s iPad was the best tablet on the market from the moment it launched, thanks to more apps than anyone else, a beautiful screen and an ease of use that was peerless. Then the iPad Mini was launched. Despite Steve Jobs’ own reservations, it turns out that in fact the 8” screen size strikes the perfect balance between ease of use and portability. It feels more natural to integrate the iPad Mini into daily life than any other device – whether it’s checking a quick email, browsing the web or downloading an app, the Mini is an easier gateway. With a 4G version available, too, it’s got excellent connectivity wherever you are. The downside is that the full-size iPad’s screen is bigger and, on balance, the Mini doesn’t offer the best value for money when compared to other tablets. But it does offer the best user experience, at least until Android develops more of the ‘coffee table’ apps that make the iPad such a joy. The thin, lightweight design is unsurpassed.

Nexus 7
From £159

A key part of the Nexus 7’s appeal comes from the open Android operating system, effortlessly integrating into Google and into the increasingly popular Android operating system; there are movies, films, books and music galore, as well as all your emails, maps and the rest, elegantly implemented.
But the single biggest plus point for the Nexus 7 is the price: for £159 you get a better screen than the iPad Mini and perfectly decent build quality from Asus. Now that the company has added a 3G option, there’s also permanent connectivity. And while Google Now really comes into its own on a phone, this feature predicts what you want to search for before you even know it (bus times when you get to a bus stop for instance) and also tells you when to leave for your next calendar appointment. Clever and affordable, the Nexus 7 is the best solution for many users.
Screen 7” 1080x800 Weight 340g Storage 8/16GB OS Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Processor 1.2GHz quadcore

Galaxy Note 2
From £449

At 5.5”, the Galaxy Note 2 is both a phone and a tablet - hence the ‘phablet’ moniker. But as much of the appeal comes the unique S-Pen technology. This stylus allows you to garner extra information about what’s on the device’s screen simply by hovering above it, and the superfast processor means that this is a device that is as comfortable as a media consumption device as it is as a work unit. For some that means the Note 2 is neither one thing nor the other, but many people still use this it as their main, sole device. It may look like an over-sized phone, but its advantages are considerable. Large screen and impressive capabilities aside, it’s also blazing a new trail.

New iPad
From £399

The latest iPad is a beautiful design that works blazingly fast – the new processor may not technically be the fastest, but it feels slicker than any other tablet on the market. With Apple’s ‘Retina display’ the company also has a screen that is, again, not technically the best on the market but somehow looks arguably more lovely. And now that there are 4G options and a 128GB version, you need never run out of storage again. If there’s a criticism of the new version it’s that it changes the dock connector so that your old cables will need replacing, and battery life could be better. But if you’re prepared to spend the money, the iPad remains – and certainly feels – like the best full-size tablet on the market. Web browsing, emails and more never felt so elegant.

Microsoft Surface
From £399

Microsoft’s Surface is the first tablet that the Windows-maker has built itself, and the idea is to show off Windows 8. The latest version of the operating system is built for touchscreens such as the Surface, and indeed this device really does make the operating system make more sense than on a conventional laptop. There are trade-offs, however: Windows 8 is a fully fledged operating system, while the Surface RT only runs a cut down version, called Windows RT. While the Surface Pro runs the full version, it is more expensive, thicker and heavier. So if you want a lovely Windows RT tablet, running the growing but limited selection of Windows 8 apps, then the Surface RT is for you. But who actually wants that? So for now Surface feels like a lovely product with some great ideas, not least the ultra-slim keyboard. But it’s a device in search of a market. The Surface Pro, meanwhile, is more of a laptop replacement, and laptops are lighter and more capable.

Kindle Fire HD
From £159

If you use the internet, you almost certainly use Amazon, and if you read books it’s increasingly certain that you also own a Kindle. The Kindle Fire HD is Amazon’s attempt to move those who already download books into the burgeoning category of those who also download music, film and TV. And while Amazon does indeed let you browse the web or use email on the Fire HD, more than anything else it is a device for browsing the company’s own store and watching media. As such, it’s got a lovely screen, offering a higher resolution than the iPad Mini at a far lower price. And in truth it does everything most people use a tablet of this size for. It’s hard to argue that that’s enough when the Nexus 7 costs the same price and offers a wealth of additional features, such as the entire Android app selection – but where Amazon excels is in making everything simpler, and that for many users is the appeal. Nifty additions such as X-Ray easily let you see whoever is on screen a film, too.Screen 7” 1280x800 Weight 395g Storage 16/32GB OS Android (adapted) Processor 1.2GHz dualcore

Galaxy Note 10.1

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is the company’s most serious attempt to change the face of computing yet – that A4 notepad can, Samsung hope, be replaced by this computerised version, which with the S-Pen you can write notes on, and then later on in the day you can watch films and TV shows too. It’s the ultimate work and play device, the company hopes, and can arguable take on the iPad on all fronts and more. Those are lofty ambitions and for early-adopting technology fans there is a lot to like in the Note 10.1. But it hardly heralds the paperless office yet, because the handwriting recognition isn’t perfect, and it also struggles because the screen isn’t up to the quality of its rivals. With 4G connectivity, however, there’s much to like the Note for – it’s a product for geeks for now, but it heralds at least part of the future. It’s also a super-charged version of the S-Pen-free Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Screen 10.1” 1280x800 Weight 600g Storage 16/32/64/128GB, microSD OS Android 4.1 Jelly BeanProcessor 1.4GHz quadcore

Nexus 10
From £319

Like the Nexus 7, Google’s Nexus 10 offers a great tablet at a really great price – unfortunately with the this larger model feels like it doesn’t quite have the class of the Nexus 7. That’s not because the screen isn’t fantastic, or because the build-quality isn’t perfectly decent. Rather it’s because of details, such as the way the case replaces the speaker cover, so you can’t easily remove it, and above all the fact that this good hardware revelas the lack of premium tablet apps for Android. On a screen this nice, there should be more to do than simply read books or watch films. Where the iPad provides that, with apps such as Leonardo Da Vinci’s Anatomy offering a novel experience, the Nexus 10 only reveals that Google has a way to go. But not being as good as the iPad is not a major barrier when the price is this attractive. Indeed, the Nexus 10 is still cheaper than the two-generations-old iPad 2.
Screen 10.1” 2560x1600 Weight 603g Storage 16/32GB OS Android 4.2 Processor 1.7GHz quadcore

iPad 2
From £329

The only real reason not to buy the iPad 2 is that a better one is now available – but with iOS5, decent battery life and a great price, the iPad 2 offers everything that made the original iPad so impressive. That means a huge library of luxurious apps, plus effortless web browsing, decent email and the design that made Apple the leader in its field. At £329, this is by no means the cheapest tablet on the market, but it remains one of the most capable, and it is of course compatible with all the accessories that are built around Apple’s ecosystem. The original connector means your old cables will work, too.
Screen 9.7” 1024x768 Weight 601g Storage 16GB OS iOS5 Processor 1GHz dualcore

Asus Transformer Prime
From £410

Asus make a wide range of tablets, but the Transformer Prime is the one that comes close to being both an excellent tablet and an excellent laptop – with the keyboard acting as a removable charging dock as well as a better way to type than on the touchscreen, as well as packing a powerful processor, this is a device for people who can get most of what they need doing done on a tablet but appreciate the convenience of a laptop. It suffers, however, from the weakenesses of Android as a tablet operating system and the equal lack of apps, and also from the fact that Android is not designed to operate laptops. So its Office software, for instance, is a compromise. But it’s one that works for Asus’s dedicated niche of users.

Facebook To Introduce HashTags

Facebook might become a bit more like Twitter soon. According to reports from The Wall Street Journal and All Things D, Facebook is experimenting with using a popular Twitter feature — the hashtag. 
According to the reports, Facebook is working on ways to incorporate the hashtag into the service. Like it does on Twitter, the #+word combination would group conversations around specific topics. Currently on Facebook you can tag a topic or person who has a Facebook account or page, but you cannot simply see what all Facebook users are saying about a specific topic.

But it might be a while before you start seeing the # symbol showing up in your feed. “It is unclear how far along Facebook’s work on the hashtag is and the feature isn’t likely to be introduced imminently,” the Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. When reached by ABC News, a Facebook spokesperson said, “We do not comment on rumor or speculation.”
Instagram, which was purchased by Facebook for $1 billion last year, also incorporates the hashtag. Users can tag their photos with hashtags and they will be grouped together when you select that tag. The functionality would also keep people on Facebook longer and talking about specific topics, all which would be a boon for Facebook’s advertisers, the Journal said.
The functionality would also complement Facebook’s new News Feed, which was introduced last week. The new feed allows users to see feeds with just specific types of content, including photos, games and music. This week Facebook also rolled out a new design to its Timeline, which groups status and updates on the left side and content and apps on the right.

Samsung's New Market Position Revealed: Galaxy S4 Launch

At Samsung’s New York City launch event for its latest flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, the company continued the “thumb in Apple’s eye” approach that has characterized its marketing campaigns of the past six months. Apparently using the same time machine that every other smartphone and tablet OEM employs to transport us back to the PC market of the late 1990s, Samsung revealed to attendees (and gobs of live blog observers) the usual deluge of tech specs that — for some unfathomable reason — populate the initial paragraphs of every device review: 8 core processor, 13 megapixel camera, 5 inch AMOLED display…
BO-RING! Every Android phone and tablet maker touts these specs because CPUs, image sensors, and displays are the rapidly evolving technology waves that they ride and where most of their evolution resides. To be fair, Apple too is quick with its own spec comparisons, but because Cupertino controls the entire platform from hardware to OS to APIs to cloud and other services, they have a much greater playing field on which to innovate.

With Samsung staking out its ground as Apple’s foremost competitor, the Galaxy S4 and its launch event reveal several insights into the state of this competition today:
  • Samsung has invested significantly in software and it is paying off. Samsung has managed to stuff some unique hardware features into the S4: environmental sensors (e.g., barometer, temperature, and humidity), the latest WiFi technology (802.11ac), and an IR gesture sensor. But its real differentiation lies in the software it has built to leverage the phone’s hardware. From the ability to composite images from both cameras simultaneously, to compositing sound with still images, to embedded language translation integrated with voice to text and text to voice, Samsung’s much-improved software skills translate to a wealth of new experiences for their customers.
  • Samsung’s leverage has increased substantially. With its previous flagship phone, the S III, Samsung was able to convince its carrier partners to accept a single, commonly branded device. The S IV continues this position, putting Samsung and its Galaxy brand front and center — with the carrier’s brand in the background (though still present, presumably, unlike on Apple’s devices).
  • Samsung’s focus has expanded to the enterprise. Samsung recognized that CIOs remain concerned about the security of Android devices, and has invested significantly to establish its Galaxy devices as reinforced for the enterprise. Its KNOX software for managing work and personal data separation appeals to the BYOD trend, and its substantial marketing investment in the SAFE branding is squarely targeted at assuaging CIO security concerns.
Despite all these advancements in Samsung’s position, the event also exposes a clear gap the company has yet to close with Apple: the extent to which it can dictate and exercise control. Apple’s launch events may not have the singing and dancing that Samsung brought, but they do have a couple of things Samsung didn’t: details like pricing and a specific launch date by country and operator. Apple’s brand power allows it to ensure that these critical pieces of information come out at the launch — and none of their competitors, not even Samsung, yet rises to that level.
