Android: On Smartphones top, on tablets flop?

Android is the operating system that currently provides a sensation on Smartphones: the Appstore is growing, the number of smartphones with Android is booming, and the operating system is on everyone’s lips. But now … what is with Android on tablets? NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang put it in an interview with CNET on the point – it is not the NVIDIA provided and very powerful Tegra 2 platform, but on marketing in the shops and on the pricing policy has been driven so far. Also the software offer diversity was still too restricted. Our assessment to do so: The Apple iPad 2 is cheaper than the Motorola Xoom, although it thinner, some high-quality processes and of the software here is sophisticated (also the app offering is much greater than for Android). Android has risen in the version 3.0 clearly at ease and makes an iPad alternative thanks to the possibilities of personalization quite – however, the cheaper iPad is currently preferable 2.

Google nexus S: soon to Vodafone/O2 available, also in white!

The Google Android Smartphone nexus S is the legitimate successor of the rather moderately successful Google nexus one. Now approved by the Vodafone blog, that there will soon be the Smartphone for Vodafone Germany. Only news that I expected but so is that the nexus must be S in Germany without a super AMOLED display. No further bad news, because the technology offers a good image and strong colors though, the now used Super clear LCD technology offers but a better readability in sunlight and more natural colours. It is a matter of taste which technique you prefer probably. Otherwise provides the Google nexus S in addition to very good, but not outstanding hardware (4 ″ display with 800 × 480 pixels, 1 GHz processor, Wi-Fi, HSPA, A-GPS …) at least a telling argument: it’s the Google Smartphone and we strongly preferred at updates handled. We expect the Android Smartphone in March of this year and keep more up to date! Both O2 and Vodafone have announced to offer the Smartphone soon.

LG Optimus 3D: The first 3D Smartphone comes

3D is a hype is so far still not really broken out. Sales in the area of television are rather sobering despite massive advertising: no wonder because most TV content are largely in high definition and 3D to see glasses inconvenient and annoying. Some time ago, it was still predicted’s last years, until 3D is reasonably usable without glasses. The doldrums in current products that require such glasses, the manufacturer already strive to bring 3D without glasses on the man. Nintendo comes with the next generation of the Nintendo DS (with the name of 3DS) and LG is bringing the first Smartphone with 3D display on the market. The Smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will be presented on February 14. We read now what have to offer is the LG Optimus 3D.

Display technology: 3D without glasses

As already mentioned, we are now in a phase of 3D unfortunately can open up is due to the small inconsistencies of any large target group. There are simply too few films 3D, glasses are usually very uncomfortable and darken the image greatly. All-in-all is a hype, which actually only with manufacturers and a small target group of technology interested 3D so, 3D passes yet to the masses. Also LG has recognized this fact – in addition, a pair of glasses with a mobile device makes probably much less sense as home. Supposedly, LG Works displays for the production of special 3D with the manufacturer of 3D master image. This company has started already in 2004, technology to bring 3D and 3D already now has mobile technology in the starting blocks at the beginning of the year 2011 was presented at the consumer electronics show. The company’s patented “ cell matrix Parallax ” technology provides high brightness according to the manufacturer’s homepage, support for portrait and landscape mode and to bring high returns thanks to a favourable production for the manufacturer. It is also expected that the 3D display like in the Nintendo 3DS is switched off, because sometimes the viewing of the content on a small 3D display provides more irritation. At the mobile gaming console by Nintendo must be just as upside down and the device, otherwise the image is blurred quickly.

LG Optimus 3D – getting info

LG not miser currently with superlatives and seems to want to push especially the sales of smartphones in 2011. The Optimus speed is announced not only as one of the first smartphones with dual-core processor, but the LG Optimus Black provides some technical highlights with a great display at the same time very flat design. When the new LG Optimus 3D, the technical highlight is apparently already in the name. The 3D technology to as already explained above with the help of the “ cell matrix Parallax ” technology without 3D glasses come out and allow a three-dimensional representation. The specific scope is currently still unknown, however, this is not so easy in the field of TV devices, because while movies can be converted very poorly in 3D, the representation of 3D applications in a representation for the eye is easily possible. This is because for example game worlds already included depth information can be converted into a stereoscopic image accordingly. Films, this is not the case, so that only optimised and machined with special cameras 3D movies also sensibly can be played as such. The page has already can snag an exclusive picture of the new LG Smartphone. Expected is probably a Smartphone, by technology and the mass produced about the LG Optimus is similar to speed. However, there are also rumors that NVIDIA already has a new Tegra chipset with more computing power at work than the previous NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor. This would be necessary for the complex calculation of stereoscopic content. Maybe the new phone is equipped yes even with a 3D-enabled camera. We will keep you up to date!

Availability and price

Given that TV here have experienced 3D little encouragement in the country, what also even learn to LG (losses in TV), I expect not-too-speedy release in Germany. It is conceivable that the LG Optimus 3D in Germany is available only if it can claim some success in the Asian world. Europe is technically rather conservative and not sophisticated 3D technology could scare customers what does not apply for the gadget hungry Japanese and Chinese. That’s why we can recommend at this point: when it not currently already rather senseless 3D feature arrives first and foremost on my opinion, but check out the LG Optimus times to speed. With a 4. ″ display and cutting-edge dual core has currently in the performance the Crown the Smartphone and is externally almost like the LG Optimus 3D. The Smartphone also runs with a sophisticated Android version, which can be operated thanks to the outstanding performance also fluently and comfortably.
