The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3110 preview and specifications

Tab 2 P3110
Samsung is rolling out a new product into it's tablet range, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3110 which is very similar to Samsung's earlier tablet Tab 2 P3100 which offers call facility. This tablet though doesn't offer call facility to it's users but is priced almost 6k less than it's predecessor.

The P3110 packs a 1Ghz dual core processor which packs 1GB of RAM to run the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. With the PowerVR SGX540 graphics card the tab is capable of handling a lot of action packed games. A 7inch LCD Capacitive screen touch screen with a resolution of 1024x600 and 16M colors may not stand-up with the best but is justified for the price the P3110 is being offered. 

The tab has an internal storage of 16GB and is expandle upto 32GB using a microSD card. A 3.15 Megapixel primary camera which is capable of recording even 720p videos at the rate of 30frames/sec isn't really an asset as it doesn't have autofocus but given the price you cant ask for more, and the tab also has a secondary 0.3 MP camera, which we feel is unwanted as there is no calling facility available for this tab.

A 4000mAh lithium-ion battery is where the P3110 draws it's power from and has a standby time of around 1070 hours. The P3110 Samsung Galaxy Tab2 is more or less the Tab P3100 minus the calling facility.  We would list the pros and cons of the Tab P3100 and a few others so that you can have an idea of what you are going to get,

Pros
--------
  • Dual core processor and 1GB Ram.
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS.
  • The PowerVR SGX540 graphics card.
  • Good multimedia support.
  • Decently priced at Rs 13,990/-
Cons
---------
  • No gorilla glass feature.
  • Not the best of displays with a comparitively low PPI(Per-pixel intensity).
  • A meaningless front camera when you don't have calling facility.
  • No USB charging and long charging times.
We would recommend the Galaxy Tab2 P3110 to people who are desperate to get a decent tab at around 10-15k and who doesn't mind not having the calling facility feature. Go for it only you are ready to sacrifice on these things.

Huawei Ascend G600 - Worth every penny you spend

Huawei Ascend G600 reviews specifications
The Huawei Ascend G600 - A winner from Huawei.

Huawei , The largest telecommunication devices maker in the world has rolled out a new smartphone in the Indian market which we feel is a steal at the price it is being offered. The Huawei Ascend 600 has features that would put it's price range competitors to shame. A 1.2 GHz Dual Core ARM Cortex Processor is where the Ascend G600 gets it's amazing performance and runs the new Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The Ascend's 8 Megapixel camera has some latest technology on offer, The BSI(Backside-Illuminated CMOS Sensors) which offers better performance in low-light conditions. 

The dual DTS SRS speakers are a treat to the ears and an incredible screen resolution of 540x960 at 244PPI(Per-pixel intensity) in a 4.5 inch screen with HD IPS technology a treat to the eyes. If you thought that's all then you are wrong, the best is yet to come, The Huawei Ascend G600 packs an amazing Lithium-Ion battery of 1930 mAh power. A powerful battery means more backup time and talk time, and some users reported the phone lasts around a day and half without recharging. 

Coming to memory and storage, The Ascend 600 packs 1GB of Processing power which is equal to processing power on phones like the Samsung S2 priced almost 10k more. The phone has an internal storage memory of 4GB and can be expanded to upto 32GB using a microSD card. 

The areas where the phone falls is the GPU(Graphical Processing Unit), which is not among the best as it would be hard to run games with good graphics and some 1080p videos, but given the price range and other amazing features we would definitely ignore it. Another area that could have been improved is the resolution of video recording feature, while most phones in this price range offers 720p HD recording, The Ascend offers 640x480 pixel recorded videos. 

Pros:
------


  • Dual core ARM Cortex processor with 1GB RAM running Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
  • An amazing 1930 mAh Lithium-Ion Battery that offers better talk-time and standby-time.
  • A 540x960 pixel, 4.5 inch HD IPS display with 244 PPI and corning Gorilla glass.(Better than the Samsung Galaxy S2).
  • 8 Megapixel Camera with BSI Technology(Offers great photos even at low-light).
  • Dual DTS SRS Speakers with amazing sound clarity.
  • A great phone at this price.
Cons:
------
  • A slightly weaker GPU(Graphical Processing Unit).
  • No 720p video recording, only 640x480 pixel recording.
The price at which Huawei offers this amazing smartphone is at Rs 14,990 and we feel the phone is a steal at this price considering the fact that it has features that would put costlier phones like the Samsung Galaxy S2 behind it. Huawei clearly has a winner in G600 and we would definitely recommend it to someone with a medium budget and wanting to have a phone with great specifications.
Flipkart.com now offers the phone at a price of 14,990 and along with it a 16GB microSD card.

Ubuntu for Phones - Competition for Android ?

Once Ubuntu for phones is officially out, Android operating system will see some competition at last. Today Android OS is the most widely preffered and used mobile operating system available. Ubuntu for phones is a concept that would be released by this year end or by the start of 2014 and has already caught the attention of Ubuntu lovers all over the world. Android lovers and tech experts though doesn't seem much impressed and a lot of forums on the internet says this could go down fast.

A video is out on Youtube which gives you a glance at the features that will available once the OS is out on mobile and the best thing we noticed is that it is very clean and beautiful with an easy to use GUI. Another important feature being offered is the security of linux in your pocket.


 
Promotional video released by Ubuntu

Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth is confident that this new mobile operating system has all it takes to be number one. There are already about 45000 native apps available for the system and has been designed to work with current generation android mobile phones. Apps will have the same core functionality that it has on a PC, and developers will be urged to make interfaces that would suit to a phone. The minimum requirements to run ubuntu for phones(as rumored) is as below,
  • Dual-core A9 ARM Processor
  •  1GB of RAM
  • 4GB Flash Storage + SD
  • 800×400 WVGA Screen
  • Multi-touch
The first release of this much awaited mobile OS will happen in late february and will only be available for the Galaxy Nexus. An installation image and it's source code is to be made available soon. Canonical seems to be all excited about this new launch and once the first release is made available to the public, we will get a clear picture of what is on offer. Even though ubuntu os is coming to phones, dual booting is still a distant dream in handsets. We are eagerly looking forward to such a development where one can use two operating systems on a phone like Android and Ubuntu.
