If you’re an iPhone / Apple fan, you may have recently seen the video roundup of all the anticipated but still rumored iPhone 5 features and specs. However, given that the rumored official launch date will be some point in September or even October, some of you might be too eager to get your hands on something similar.
Looks good, but is misleading – the new EraThink EraPalm gadget is a console / PC hybrid it seems, but can do something else.
Displayed recently at the China Consumer Electronics Fair, the portable gadget runs on Windows 7 and has a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen of 800 x 480 resolution with support up to 1080p videos. Under it, is hiding gracefully a simple sliding QWERTY keyboard, providing increased functionality. With a ethernet port too, this mobile phone like portable gadget allows wire internet connection.
A new Android device will be launched in the coming month, its known as the K-Touch W700 and is powered by NVIDIA’s dual-core Tegra 2 processor. The K-Touch W700 runs on Android 2.2, and features a 3.8 inch touchscreen with a relatively low resolution of 480×800 and two cameras, the back camera is a five megapixel camera with 720p video recording and at the front it has a 0.3 megapixel camera for video chat.
China has been known to develop alternatives to almost every gadget in existance in this tech world and that too always at a cheaper rate. Recently it came out with its own DVD like standard and now China will sell its own CPU design.
There are Chinese rumours floating about that the next iPad will be lighter, thinner, to sport two cameras and a three-axis gyroscope for improved gaming performance.
The rumour says the 9.7-inch screen size will stay as it is, and that it will be the same stunning Retina quality display as the current iPhone 4. In addition, a probable front facing camera would be in fitting with requests of so many current iPad users for Facetime.
When we talk about China, usually there is a degree of preassumption about the Chinese copying one thing or another from other countries, but not this time. The Shenzhen Huashi Future Car-Parking Equipment have come up with a concept bus and I quote a “3D Express Coach” which will help relieve some of the traffic congestion that are often experienced in busiest parts of their cities. The concept is like no other. It will enable cars to literally drive under it.
As expected, China has successfully launched iPads for the global market. The original Apple iPad isn’t yet available worldwide henceforth we are pretty sure that the Chinese versions are going to attract some amount of attention (we are already giving them some publicity by writing about them here!) The best part of these huge looking iPads is that they are just the rough versions. “This is just the first rough version,” Lin said in Cantonese. “While the shape isn’t quite the same, the external appearance is very similar to the iPad, so we don’t think it will affect our sales that much.”
