    Posted on January 9th, 2012 David Brooks | No comments

    With the fast development in technology, 2011 has brought the world quite a lot of surprises in mobile industry and other industries, like the Apple iPhone 4S, iOS 5, iPad 2, Android Ice-cream, and various popular tablets. These devices have made 2011 a glorious year in the development of communication history. Now, it has been 2012 already. And what we wonder for in 2012? Thanks to Jeff Bertolucci from PCWorld, who have made a conclusion on the most anticipated technical products of 2012. Now, I would like to share my own opinion about the most anticipated technical products in 2012 with top 8 options for your reference. Check the bellow content to get to know the Top 8 most anticipated technical products of 2012.

    Apple iPad 3

    Apple iPad 3If the gossip is true, the next-generation iPad will be a sight to behold. Its most compelling (alleged) feature: a 2048-by-1536-pixel display, offering four times the resolution of the iPad 2′s 1024-by-768-pixel screen and better user experience for users to watch HD videos on iPad. Considering that the iPad and iPad 2 each shipped in the spring, if the Apple Company maintains its tablet upgrade cycle, the iPad 3 is not far away.

    Microsoft Windows 8

    Windows 8Microsoft’s next operating system promises to be everything. Designed to power both tablets and conventional PCs, Windows 8 is ambitious and risky. The new OS will feature the touch-oriented Metro interface that we first saw in Windows Phone 7, which means Microsoft’s “reimagined” flagship OS will be the first Windows version since the iconic Windows 95 to revamp, rather than simply tweak, the desktop interface.

    Apple iPhone 5

    Apple iPhone 5Apple just released iPhone 4S last October as the successor of iPhone 4 with quite wonderful voice-recognizing personal assistant Siri and an excellent 8-megapixel camera. With the edge-to-edge design, the iPhone 4S provides even better video enjoyment for users to watch watch HD Blu-ray/DVD on iPhone 4S. The next generation of iPhone is firmly believed to be more suitable for HD video enjoyment. The rumored curved glass screen and daring teardrop shape are apparently still on the drawing board over in Cupertino. Assuming that the iPhone 5 arrives in 2012, it just might pack the visual wallop that Apple watchers have been waiting for.

    Quad-core Mobile device

    Quad-core mobile deviceSpeedy dual-core processors, such as Apple’s A5 in the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, will soon be old news as even faster quad-core chips migrate to the mobile market. Chip maker Nvidia says that smartphones featuring its quad-core Tegra 3 processors may arrive in the first half of 2012. And quad-core tablets, such as the Tegra 3-powered Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, are already here. Qualcomm, meanwhile, says that its quad-core Snapdragon chips will appear in Windows 8 tablets in the second half of 2012.

    Xbox 360 update

    Xbox 360Will the next-generation Xbox arrive in 2012? The latest rumors from reliable sources, including Supersite for Windows editor Paul Thurrott, say the next Xbox is slated for a 2013 debut. Until then, Xbox fans will have to be content with software upgrades, including an Xbox 360 dashboard update sporting a Windows 8, Metro-style interface.

    Android 4.0 phones

    Android 4.0 PhoneThe latest version of Google’s mobile operating system is already generating buzz in the mobile world. Android 4.0 offers a lot to love: a polished interface, improved multitasking, better search tools, and the intriguing-yet-gimmicky Face Unlock and Android Beam.

    Plus, a fresh batch of Android smartphones (led by the Samsung Galaxy Nexus) and a new generation of tablets (including the Asus Eee Pad Transformer 2) are designed specifically for Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich.

    Windows Phone 7 Platform

    Windows Phone 7 platformThe Microsoft platform is very strong in the enterprise space because of the management and security features released in 6.x. Windows Phone 7, released in 2010, will be a leap forward for Microsoft, with strong hardware and UI standardization better integration with social networks. Nokia’s adoption of WP7 should also help spur sales, and WP7 handsets such as the Samsung Focus S are getting good reviews. The next 12 months may decide whether Windows Phone 7 handsets succeed or go the way of the Zune.

    Sony Playstation Vita

    Sony PlayStation VitaSony’s Vita, announced last year, includes a five-inch display, dual analog sticks for game controls and a quad-core processor. The Vita will come in two models, one version with Wi-Fi only while the other version with Wi-Fi and 3G cellular connectivity. The detailed price levels of both two versions have been confirmed online: the version that includes both Wi-Fi and 3G offers two AT&T data plans: $15 for 250 megabytes a month or $25 for 2 gigabytes a month, while the Wi-Fi-only device will cost $250, and the 3G-plus-Wi-Fi one will cost $300.

    These are the top 8 most anticipated technical products in 2012. Of course, there are still many other advanced tech products which also are worthy of waiting and longing for. What are you looking for this year? You can share with us your own opinions in the comment part.

  • Rumors of the next generation of Apple iPhone: iPhone 4S to be released before this September while iPhone 5 to be released next spring

    Posted on May 31st, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    The 2011 Apple’s WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) is going to kick off June 6 and Apple will be going to announce new products for sure, just like new iOS 5, Mac X OS, etc. As for the next generation of iPhone, there are big speculations that Apple would release iPhone 4S in July or Augest while iPhone 5 would be delayed to be released in the spring of 2012.

    iPhone 4S or iPhone 5

    The rumored upcoming Apple iPhone 4S is said to be an intermediate iPhone version between iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. It would come with an 8 megapixel camera along with a SIM built-in design, which will not require SIM cards. Though there were contradictory reports that UK carrier Orange is developing new and smaller micro-SIM cards for Apple.


    The iPhone 4S will also be equipped with ARM technology in its Cortex A9 processor, while iPhone 5 is mostly rumored to equip with an A5 processor. As for the network connectivity, the rumored iPhone 4S would work with Sprint, T-Mobile, and China Mobile along with AT&T and Verizon Wireless.

    Apple iPhone 5

    The iPhone 5 release date has been rumored for long. And this time the 2012 spring release date seems to be more possible on strategy. As the iPhone 4 white was just released in April and still owns great market share in smart mobile phone market, it would be less possible for Apple to release an upgraded iPhone to compete with its own white iPhone 4. Yet, as an intermediate product, iPhone 4S might meet people’s speculations.

  • 8 tips to save and prolong iPhone 4 battery life to maximize iPhone utility

    Posted on May 26th, 2011 David Brooks | 1 comment

    Many of my friends have been complaining about the gradually weakening battery performance of their iPhone 4. And also, online complaints about the iPhone battery use could be seen everywhere. Actually the iPhone 4 battery is made pretty well. The problem is the improper use of iPhone 4 owners. The official materials of iPhone 4 battery shows that the battery would retain 80% performance of original battery after more than 400 cycles of charging and discharging if well maintained and properly used.

    iPhone 4


    Here I would like to share some knowledge with all iPhone users on how to save and prolong iPhone battery life to maximize iPhone utility. Hope the info would be helpful to better your iPhone experience.

    About iPhone 4 battery: Lithium-ion battery

    iPhone 4 adopts Lithium-ion battery (sometimes Li-ion battery or LIB) as its power source, the strongest point of which is the No Memory Effect. Memory effect refers to the phenomenon of nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries holding less battery volume along with repeated charging and discharging cycles. The No Memory Effect of Li-ion battery means the Li-ion battery volume would not reduce while charging and discharging and the Li-ion battery could be full recharged in less than 3 hours with the 4.2V constant voltage charger.

    How to charge for fresh iPhone 4

    It is improper to pursue over charging (charging longer than 12 hours) and over discharging (recharging until the battery is out and automatically shuts off, both of which belong to the nickel-cadmium rechargeable batteries. The following tips would be useful when you are to charge iPhone 4:

    (1) Charge battery according to the standard time and procedure specified on the guidebook, even for the first three times.

    (2) When you are reminded for the low battery, you should recharge battery in time, no waiting for battery out and automatically power off.

    (3) No special ways to activate iPhone Li-ion battery. The Li-ion battery would automatically activate when charged in proper chargers.

    (4) Stay your iPhone Li-ion battery away from high and low temperature conditions: the Li-ion battery life would be shortened in very high temperature and extremely low temperature conditions. Reference temperature of Li-ion battery: charging temperature: 0℃~45℃; discharging temperature: -20℃~65℃; work temperature: 0℃~40℃.

    How to save iPhone 4 Li-ion battery

    New York Times tech columnist David Pogue recently got four iPhone battery tips from an Apple store Genius, while Mr Rick Broida made an overview of these advices along with his thoughts to sum a Six Ways to Improve iPhone Battery Life. Here I would like to make a list of advices from the two knowledgeable experts and add some additional tips from yours truly.

    1. Turn off push e-mail: Turn off the “Push” feature, and set it to Manually instead (in Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars->Fetch New Data), then your iPhone checks for e-mail only when you actually open the e-mail app, rather than every 15 minutes.

    2. Turn off GPS tracks, Bluetooth, WiFi: These are all high power consumption apps, so if not needed, turn them off. Turn off GPS: In Settings ->General->Location Services; turn off Bluetooth: In Settings ->General->Bluetooth; turn off WiFi: In WiFi Settings ->WLAN.

    3. Turn off notifications: In Settings -> Notifications. Every notification would eat your battery juice, so turn off unnecessary ones.

    4. Manually terminate background apps: The background apps would be not worth the battery boost you might get

    5. Lower the screen brightness: The brighter the screen, the more power consumed.

    6. Keep it out of your pocket: The hotter your iPhone gets, the faster the battery will die.

    7. Turn off 3G connection while not surf internet: In Settings->General->Network. If not needed, 3G connection is advised to turn off for its powerful power consumption. Make sure you open the 2G connection.

    8. Other power consumption use of iPhone: SBS app, playing videos, recording videos, 2D and 3D games, etc.

    7. Brand new iPod player

    It will be not surprised for Apple to launch new iPod audio players. iPod has played a great role in the success of Apple Stores. And on this special day, it is reasonable for users to think there will be an upgrade of iPod.

  • Top 10 Anticipations towards Apple iPhone 5 in 2011: iPhone 5 Specs and Release Date

    Posted on May 18th, 2011 David Brooks | No comments

    There are so many Apple iPhone 5 rumors on its release date and specs from Apple fans and other mobile phone users. One of the latest news about the next iPhone is the iPhone 5 dubbed to be iPhone 4S. Here I would like to share some top 10 long anticipated features about Apple iPhone 5 in 2011, which may make this gadget a must-have. If iPhone 5 to be released next year, these features may be out of rage and the iPhone 5 would not become as popular as its predecessor, iPhone 4.  

    iPhone 5

    The top 10 anticipations on Apple iPhone 5:


    1. The long anticipated end-to-end display

    Recent leaked photos suggest that the smartphone will come with a display that spans the entire face of the device.If the device comes with a true end-to-end display, few would have trouble opting for the smartphone.


    2. A bigger multi-touch screen, at least 4 inches

    Apple’s competitors, like the Motorola Droid X, come with a 4.3-inch display that makes Apple’s option look rather small in comparison. If the iPhone 5 comes with a larger, 4.3-inch display and boasts the aforementioned end-to-end design, it could be a winner at retail.


    3. 4G connectivity

    The 4G network connectivity of iPhone 5 is almost for sure for all iPhone fans and smart mobile phone users. The 4G connectivity of HTC Evo 4G and other mobile phones, together with the need of users, Apple is no doubt to include this in iPhone 5.


    4. Antenna improvement

    The signal quality loss of iPhone 4 after its early release has made bother users and Apple realize the necessity of an antenna improvement. Good antenna connectivity would make users suffer less on signal quality thus attract more users for Apple.


    5. Better HD camera

    The hot rumor on the iPhone 5 camera is that this new iPhone would include an 8MP HD camera for video recording and video chatting. The iPad 2 has adopted 8MP HD camera, so it is reasonable for users to expect an equal high definition camera on iPhone 5.


    6. More enterprise features

    Apple has been trying to enter the enterprise market for long. By offering up more enterprise-focused features in iOS especially, Apple could seriously hurt RIM’s market share with the iPhone 5.


    7. Larger storage

    There are rumors that the iPhone 5 would include 32GB and 64GB versions for users at the same price. This has been really exciting news for all iPhone fans, especially for those media lovers.


    8. NFC (Near Field Communication) support

    NFC technology has been all the rage for smart mobile phones in current smart mobile phone market. The main competitors of Apple, like Google, have been adopting this advanced payment on


    9. Dual radios

    There are few rumors of dual radios on iPhone 5. Considering on the support for both GSM and CDMA technology in the USA, it is much possible for Apple to include dual radios on iPhone 5.


    10. 2011 release expectation

    The iPhone 5 would gain great popularity if released in 2011, as after that, Apple’s competitors would come up and shorten the distance with Apple iPhone. The later the iPhone 5 is released, the more time the competitors would gain. Also, a 2011 release of iPhone 5 is the strong will from all iPhone fans and users.
