Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Predictions and Rumors

Posted on 07 August 2014 by yizhan

Last year we saw the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which improved on its predecessor, the Note 2, in various ways and turned a bunch of heads. Following the success of the Note 3 it is only normal that Samsung would be launching the 4th device in the series which would most probably be titled the Note 4.

One more thing to keep in mind about Samsung and the Note 4 is that the company has been at a fairly steady decline recently and it will only go further unless they manage to bring out something revolutionary in their next flagship device and judging by what we’ve heard of the Note 4 so far, it definitely seems like a device that will turn the tides back into Samsung’s favor.

Before going into the specs and technical details of the device let’s get some main things like the release dates and price out of the way. From what has been revealed until now and calculating by previous Samsung release cycles, the most accurate prediction of the Note 4’s release date would probably be set in September and as for pricing, since the phone is packed with so much next generation hardware it is only normal that the expected price would reach at least somewhere around the 850$ mark at initial release.

Moving on to the screen size of the device let’s look at how the previous Note devices have turned out. The Note 1 had a 5.3 inch display; the Note 2 had a 5.5 inch display, the Note 3 had a 5.7 inch display so it’s pretty clear from the trend that each successive Note device has a screen size that is 0.2 inches larger than its predecessor so it really isn’t a far-fetched thought to expect that the Note 4 would be rocking a 5.9 inch display.

As for the inner hardware specifications, the phone has been confirmed to be running a QHD screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 and Gorilla Glass 3. As for screen technology, there have been rumors that the Note 4 might have a PLS display instead of their traditional AMOLED since it will reduce costs but this is still too soon to talk about.

Going further into the technical specifications, expect a 16 MP rear camera that is capable of recording videos at 2160p at 30 FPS and a 2 MP front facing camera that can record 1080p videos at 30 FPS.

The Note 4’ll most likely ship with a version of Android 4.4 Kitkat since Android L is still far from official release. Aside from this, expect your regular Quad-core/Octa-core processors and at the very least 3 GB of RAM included if not 4 GB. The GPU will most likely be an Adreno 420 or a Mali T-760 so you judging by these specifications you’ll be able to run any of the latest and hardware demanding Android apps for a long time to come.

iPhone 6 Concept Design

Posted on 02 July 2014 by yizhan

When will Apple launch its latest project? The answer to that is still undiscovered as Apple still hasn’t confirmed its release date for its latest installment of the gigantic iPhone series. Will it be called iPhone 6 or will Apple come up with a completely new and catchy name for its star product. Apple dominating the world market with its design and captivating operating systems has a large order on their hands this time. With Samsung and HTC catching up with the competition, Apple needs innovation its product design to bring a revolution in its latest project. Though Apple hasn’t officially confirmed any news, rumors have been out on what the new iPhone will look like and what Apple has in store for us.

It has been confirmed that the new iPhone will step away from its traditional razor look design and will now work on making a bigger phone. Its concept portrays an extension in the size of the new phone where its competitors have released huge devices which are practically more convenient with the customers now. As for predictions and concepts go by the new model will be 5 or 5.5 inches in display which is a step away from previous models and a lot thinner, up to 5.23 mm. So we see how the phone will be bigger and thinner but rumors also have it that Apple will launch more colors in the phone like it did with iPhone 5c.

As far fetched and advance as this seems, the most famous concept includes the iPhone 6 with dual screens. The second screen will slide out from the extremely thin side body of the phone. Along with that, one of the widely adapted innovations of wireless charging goes, it is heard that apple will indeed add this feature to its upcoming model where the phone will charge through a wireless charging mode.

With the latest survey in the US concerning more than over 5000 people who are saying that iPhone 6 is the most anticipated phone ever. As Apple made minor updates to the iPhone 5s and 5c, there is a lot of pressure on Apple as some say that this is a pivotal device in the history of the industry. And as for the body of the iPhone, it is said that it will be made from metal and aluminum given the more angular hard end design.

As per the software features and the operating system goes Apple will definitely bring something new to the table. The new phone will showcase the soon to be released and upgraded iOS 8 which is made in compatibility with the upcoming release.  In regard of new advanced features, the phones display is set to adapt to real life background environment and ditch the traditional home screen menu with an additional iPhone to IPhone app sharing feature that lets to share between your devices. In regard of the new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, the new iPhone will also host Apple TouchID Fingerprint Scanner.

Apple is renowned for keeping its devices a mystery till the last minute so there is no reliability to what Apple has in store for us with the new upcoming iPhone 6. Speaking of upcoming releases, Apple still hasn’t reviewed its release date for its new phone but speculators put it in September 2014 perfectly following the rollout release announced of iOS 8. Apple is known for making a dramatic entry and with its new phone it has the perfect opportunity to be doing so. By guessing and looking at the previous releases it has released its previous hardware launches in events set in September. Nothing can be expected till the end but Apple is expected to bring about a masterpiece this season with its iPhone 6.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

Posted on 14 June 2014 by yizhan

It’s been a couple of very competitive years for market giants like Apple, HTC, Sony, Nokia and Samsung. Needless to say that Samsung has been one of the top dogs with its innovative ideas and smart market campaigns to attain and retain its customers. Previously focusing on a ‘lifestyle campaign’, this time Samsung has shifted its focus towards ‘product campaign’. In regards to its latest launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5, Ines van Gennip, one of  Samsung’s marketing directors said that this time Samsung is taking on a strategy of” people inspired innovation.” And Samsung once again has come on top with the upgrades to its latest, most anticipated android smart phone of the year.

GAlaxy s5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 offers better quality screen with Super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, 16M colors and a multi-touch interface.  This 1920 x 1080 pixel display places the new S5 somewhere between the S4 and Note 3, in regards to overall size and weight. In terms of display, the GS5 is much brighter than the GS4, not just indoors, but in direct sunlight too. Significant improvement has been seen in the viewing and the colors are more lifelike even from severe angles. There has been immense improvement on the camera with its 5312 x 2988 pixels and phase detection autofocus. This 16MP camera also has LED flash. The new bigger design has the added benefit of a more durable battery life with what Samsung calls ‘Ultra Power Saving Mode’, which comes in handy to keep users afloat when the battery is critically low. It automatically changes phone settings to manage basic functions and restricts app use for reserving power for emergency functions.

samsung_galaxy_s5

There is plenty of power and storage, which is a nice improvement over its previous models. It supports up to 128 GB in addition to its existing internal memory of 16/32 GBs. Jam packed with Android v4.4.2, the phone supports up to 4G Networks. Speaking of speed, most versions of GS5 come with a new feature called Download Booster, which combines the power of WiFi, LTE and Grayskull to help to increase the download speed of larger files compared to the speed you get on any one network. This service however doesn’t support anything less than 30 MB and doesn’t apply to certain protocols like UDP and FTP.

Samsung-Galaxy-S5-water

This model is both water and dust resistant which adds to its appeal and the overall upgrades on the software have managed to satisfy the customers on a large scale. There are however areas which could have used more work, like the fingerprint scanner in the home button and the heart rate monitor which some people have even gone so far as to declare futile. The Touchwiz UI looks way better but can still be frustrating for some users. Despite much speculation about a metal design, Samsung has yet again stuck with its conventional design completely. Although waterproof, its dimpled back can hardly be termed an improvement over the past designs. And being a flagship phone, much more was expected from Samsung, especially when its competitors are eye candy like the HTC One M8. However there are pros to not having a particularly slippery phone considering the GS5 is 5 mm taller, 3mm wider and 0.2mm thicker than its predecessor the GS4, and a better grip never hurt anyone.


The GS5 is currently selling at a price of around 650 $, depending on carrier charges and the FOREX.
All in all if you’re looking for a smart phone that delivers, the GS5 is one of your best options. Looking at it from a perspective of market share and customer base, Samsung could’ve just sat still and still sold all that much product, considering that, it is obvious that Samsung is making an effort this time to keep its customers happy.

Samsung Galaxy S5 specs:
5.1-inch Super AMOLED display @ 1080×1920 pixels, 432ppi
Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AC 2.5GHz quad-core processor
Adreno 330 Graphics
16GB internal memory
up to 128GB via microSD card
LTE 150Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n

NFC
IP67 water & dust resistant
Fingerprint scanner

Details on the Upcoming Amazon Smartphone

Posted on 21 May 2014 by yizhan

Smart-phones are all the hype nowadays and every company wants to jump in on the bandwagon by making a flagship phone of their own and it seems the next company to do so will be Amazon. Their phone has been rumored for a long while now and there have also been leaks about its features and looks etc. and by what we know up until now, it’s definitely something you’ll want to pick up if you’re into high-tech smart-phones, that is of course if it manages to actually deliver all the features that have been mentioned about it.

amazon smartphone

Getting the basics out of the way, according to sources, the phone will have a 4.7 Inch screen and will be running a custom android version similar to the versions seen in the kindle fire tablets. The design of the phone is still unknown as it’s hidden under a protective shell so that unauthorized people don’t get any unwanted previews of it but if you were to guess from the design of the protective covering, it’s one of the traditional smart-phone designs similar to the ones you’d see in a trademark phone by someone like Samsung or Sony but don’t think that the design is set in stone, Amazon may very well decide to introduce a new design to it before shipping it out.. Other than that, since it is Amazon’s phone, there’s also a rumored data plan for it which grants bonuses and free content from the digital selections Amazon has to offer.

smart phone by amazon

The real game changing feature that Amazon is offering with the phone is the whole 3D interface. The interface design will be completely 3D and there will also feature gesture controls (think slightly similar to the Air Gestures seen in the Galaxy S4) which is certainly something that’s new to the smart-phone market since not many companies have focused on gesture based controls up until now other than Samsung of course with its Air and multiple other forms of gestures.. It will also feature other gestures other than the 3D ones such as if you’re browsing through movies, if you tilt your phone then it will display the IMDB rating of the movie you have highlighted above its thumbnail, this is just a small taste of the gesture controls that the phone will have to offer.

The Amazon phone will consist of a whopping six onboard cameras. Two of these cameras will be the regular front and rear mounted cameras used for taking pictures and capturing videos. Other than these two cameras, the other four will be infrared cameras that the phone will utilize for all the regular and 3D gesture controls, they must be offering a really large amount of gesture based controls if the phone has four onboard cameras built solely for this purpose. Putting gesture controls aside, many sources have stated that the phone will feature a completely new control scheme for how you control and navigate through your everyday apps.

Mobile Traffic Continues To Rise

Posted on 03 February 2014 by yizhan

The incredible growth of the smartphone market has given rise to the notion that mobile is ‘the future’ of the internet. Data released by IBM, through its Digital Analytics Benchmark marketing software, would certainly appear to corroborate this.
Indeed, the software, which tracks the buying activity on retail sites throughout the web, found that traffic generated through the use of mobile devices accounted for 48% of all online traffic on Christmas Day 2013, compared with 19.7% a year earlier – a staggering rise of 28.3%!
Great news for sites that put a lot of effort optimising for the site mobile use. Let’s take Metro Play Casino for example. Their mobile site has been designed with ease and speed in mind so the user can access their games instantly. Meaning they can play more and rush less. The increase in mobile traffic indicates people are playing their favourite slots games wherever and whenever they can. On the bus on the way to work, sat in the Doctor’s waiting room, even at home if a computer is out of reach.
So what are the reasons for the rise?
Mobile sales
Mobile traffic has been driven by the increasing popularity of both smartphones and tablet devices, with the latter in particular seeing a sharp rise in sales. This leads to the very real possibility that the tablet market will outstrip those of the PC and notebook markets combined over the coming year.
According to the data provided by IBM, mobile sales were up by 40% on Christmas Day 2013 compared to 2012, the devices themselves making up 29% of all sales during the Christmas period – a rise of 16% on the previous year.
Yet only 9% of online sales were completed using smartphones, whereas tablets were used to complete 19% of all purchases, illustrating the long held belief that people prefer using tablets to make purchases as they feel that they are more secure.
With regards to the smartphone devices used to generate traffic in the period immediately following Christmas Day, it would appear that as stated in an article by Marketingpilgrim.com: “that lots of people got brand new iPhones for Christmas”.
Indeed, iPhones generated a whopping 76.1% of traffic generated by smartphones. Apple’s nearest rival on this chart, Amazon, showed its Kindle Fire Tablets generated 9.4% of all mobile traffic, with all other devices seeing a fall in usage in this regard.
Rise in social media
The aforementioned Marketingpilgrim.com article, rightly refers to the combination of mobile and social media by saying ‘get used to it because it’s not going away’.
Social media has in many ways become synonymous with mobile devices and it seems obvious that advertising on sites like Facebook have an influence on sales. The data provided by IBM illustrates that social media has also played a significant part in the rise in online sales, with Facebook in particular referring customers for an average spend of $72.01 (£44 approx.).

Take Your Cell Phone Abilities To New Heights With These Tips

Posted on 08 December 2013 by yizhan

Cell phones are something that tons of people use on a daily basis. This is probably something that you need to learn more about, and that’s what this article is here for. When you’re ready, you can read through the advice presented here to help you when you need to work with cell phones.

cellphones

Debrand your phone if you want to increase the memory that you have. This means that you will remove all of the themes, logos and images of the company that it relates to, which will give you more ability to purchase ringtones and images from other providers of cell phone service.

Did you know that the battery in your cell phone has some reserved power? If you find that your cell phone battery is dead, and you have no way to charge it, enter the USSD “*3370#”. You will see up to a 50% increase in power. This reserve power will charge the next time you charge your phone.

Don’t bother with covers for your cell phone’s screen. There are many accessories that can improve your experience with your cell phone; cell phone covers usually aren’t one of them. Most cell phone screens are already scratch resistant, and the plastic cover will only make the touch screen less responsive.

If you are looking to upgrade your cell phone and you are told you have to pay a large fee, you should try to negotiate. Companies do not want to lose valuable customers, so they may be willing to waive this. Even if they say no, it will not hurt to ask.

There is reason to believe that the radiation produced by cell phones could cause brain tumors and other health problems. While there is no direct proof that this is true, it is better to be safe than sorry. Whenever you can, put your phone on speaker or plug a headset into it.

celphone

If you have a smartphone it can be tempting to leave it on all of the time so you never miss any social media updates. This is not a good idea because your phone needs to be restarted every day or two. This will keep unused programs from continuing to purge your memory.

A case isn’t needed for new phones. A hard material such as Kevlar or a carbon fiber is typically used by smartphone designers when the phone is built. Cases can help boost their strength, but they can make using the phone harder. Weigh your options carefully, and make a decision based on the kind of phone you have.

Don’t invest in the most expensive cell phone available on the market. There are plenty of great phones for half the price of a more expensive one. When you purchase overpriced phones, you are generally paying for the level of popularity they have and the brand name. More affordable phones can be just as great, but perhaps not as popular as an iPhone.

If you need to get a new cellphone, look for one of the latest model smart phones. These phones have nearly the capability of an Ipad or similar device that connects to the internet. This will allow you to check your email, pay bills and access online information away from home.

Make sure your plan is the right one for you. There are many, many plans when it comes to cell phones and it is important that you get the one that best fits your needs. For instance, if you text a lot, make sure your plan covers this or you could be left paying a lot of overage.

As you can see, working with cell phones is something that you can easily do. Just take into account what you’ve read here and when all is said and done you should do just fine. You'll be entering into the world of cell phones armed with the best knowledge there is!

Flat Look: Future-Proofing iOS Design

Posted on 27 November 2013 by Ryan Benson

Apple’s iOS 7 has finally washed its hands off the tacky skeuomorphic look and adopted the flat design. It is a giant leap ahead for Apple devices. And we just don’t mean the iPhones and iPads but futuristic devices such as iWatch, iTV, and even iCar. John Ive battled the odds to ensure that Apple’s mobile operating system iOS 7 got the much needed overhaul. But it was not an easy task. After all, Steve Jobs was allegedly a fan of skeuomorphism, as was iOS creator Scott Forstall (said to his protégé). But Jony Ive wasn’t a skeuomorphic fan resulting in what became the much touted skeuomorphic vs flat debate.

ios7With Scott Frostall’s departure, it looked like the pro-flat design team outnumbered the skeuomorphic side. It was about time that the horribly outdated skeuomorphic look resembling real objects, gaudy gradients, and faux textures had to go. Trying to mimic real objects and mislead audience is clearly a thing of past. Instead, iOS 7 sports clean, simple, and two-dimensional interfaces. iOS 7 appreciates the fact that users are interacting with a flat screen and don’t need to be guided to push buttons.

There is no denying that the flat look aligns with Apple’s long-term goals and is not limited to smartphones and tablets. But Apple thinks big and thinks ahead of the curve. Back in June 2013, during the opening keynote of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple announced iOS in the Car which allows iOS devices to work with manufacturers’ built-in in-car systems. iOS in the Car would allow to make quick calls, listen to music, send messages, and access maps from in-dash screen.

Well, and as it turns out that operating system designed to be flat design is much suitable to running on multiple devices compared to skeuomorphic designed system. While the visual design is almost similar to that of iOS 7 on the iPhone or iPad, its UI is strikingly different with big rectangular buttons. Obviously safety is the driving force. While iOS In The Car uses buttons of different shapes and sizes it is easy to quickly and safely push a button without taking your eyes off the road because all icons are flat.

The message is subtle yet clear. Apple is future-proofing its design with the flat look of its operating system. And iOS 7 is a step in the right direction.

iwatch

Easy to adapt to new devices: iOS 7 icons can be expanded both vertically and horizontally. It is easy to fill the blank space with the colors on the edges, making it very easy for Apple to adapt visual language to new devices. Take for instance the long-rumored HDTV, Apple will not have to create entirely new icons for this new interface. Rather the flat design allows them to expand their existing icons to fit any shape effortlessly. This would have not been possible with the skeumorphic design. Imagine the complexity involved in interpreting complicated patterns, shadows, texture, and gradients for each new device.

Does not distort: Skeuomorphism looks strange and funny on curved displays. On the other hand, flat designs don’t distort. While all displays are flat right now, there is no denying that future display will come in all shapes and sizes. Iwatch is widely speculated to be curved. With flat UI, Apple has already prepared itself for future inventions be it curved or 3-D displays.

Wrapping up: Now that Apple has broken the shackles of skeuomorphism, iOS is clearly preparing to embrace the future. Be it curved display or HDTV, or groundbreaking gadgets, flat makes iOS’s design more adaptive to changes, futuristic, and agile.

Top Tips To Help You Get The Most From Your Cell Phone

Posted on 07 November 2013 by yizhan

When it comes to cell phones, no two are the same. Whether you have have a Samsung flip phone or you can have an iPhone, you will find great benefits from the tips located below. Any cell phone user should learn all they can about the device, and today is the day!

Do not use a screen protector on your phone. These may look like a practical investment at first as they will reduce the amount of glare that you have during the day, but will also reduce the visibility on your phone. Air bubbles will also result if you do not put them on properly.

Don’t rush into buying the latest, greatest phone. Sometimes it’s just not worth it. Sometimes updates to phones are relatively minor. Read several reviews of new models before deciding if you need to make a purchase. It’s likely you don’t.

If you have a weak signal, try not to use your phone. It will drain the battery very quickly. Also, if you have your phone on your person, do not shove it down into the depths of your purse or briefcase, as it is unlikely to get a good signal down there. If you are concerned that your signal is weak, it is best to turn the phone off completely.

technology news

If you want to listen to music on your cell phone, you may want to install a cloud storage application. This way, you can save your favorites to it without using the memory in your phone. You can also do this with pictures. Additionally, it keeps your music and pictures safe if something happens to your phone.

Do not use the Wi-Fi on your cell phone if you are in a place that has access to a computer. Many people do not realize that this is an easy way to rack up excess bills. You should log onto the computer and save the data usage for the times that you really need it.

Haggle a bit when shopping for your next phone. You generally wouldn’t expect haggling to work in a retail setting, but it is often effective in the case of buying a new cell phone. Try it for yourself. It can’t hurt, and people often get between 50 and 100 dollars knocked off the price.

Charge your phone with a power booster or a pack that attaches to your cell phone. This device will have a full charge already so you can charge your phone on the go and have backup energy when you need it most. You will just need to charge this pack in advance for this to work.

Most smartphones lack an optical zoom feature. To photograph an object up close, you must physically move nearer to it. There are also lenses that you can buy that will fit onto your smartphone that will let you zoom in.

If you have a teen and they are in need of a new phone, you should think about buying them one that is prepaid. This will stop them from using the phone too much and running up a huge bill. They will be more disciplined once they know they have a certain allotment of texts, talk minutes and data that can be used monthly.

If you do not need a cellphone with internet connection capability, check out one of the several prepaid phones. These cellphones do not require that you sign a contract, and you can have phone service for as little as a few dollars a month. Many seniors prefer these phones since they are not interested in anything other than phone service away from home.

Whether you want to learn how to find the best apps, buy the best phone or just decide between Android, iOS or Windows, knowledge is power. The advice here is a great start, but don’t stop learning now! Keep reading, developing your mastery of cell phones so you can use them to your advantage.

Which 2013 smartphone is the best for gaming

Posted on 23 October 2013 by yizhan

Many of us use our smartphones for games. Some prefer the addictive challenge of a puzzler such as Cut the Rope, whereas others opt for the online casino or an arcade type adventure game. This means that one of our prime concerns when buying a smartphone should be: Which phone is best for gaming in 2013?

Android have a host of stylish phones which are great for gaming, as the Google Play store becomes ever more bountiful, but then Windows phones also have a fast developing app market. With all that in mind, it’s still nevertheless the iTunes store and the iPhone that lead the way for many critics and the iPhone5s looks set to reinforce Apple’s position.

When considering gaming abilities we should look at things like storage – 32or 64GB is preferable as games and heavy Operating Systems really fill a phone up – screen size, processing power and RAM. The latest iPhone ticks all of these boxes and the A7/M7 processing combination really makes the phone a mark of things to come.

That’s not to say Android has been left behind and many will still prefer the slightly larger screen of the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the sound capabilities of the HTC One. This new breed of Android phones have huge quad core processors to keep those graphics heavy arcade action games ticking along, and the user interfaces are great for swiping and touching the screen.

Phones like the Sony Xperia Z have really taken the market by storm, offering a 5inch display, Snapdragon processor and 2GB RAM. The Google Nexus 4 represents how much Google’s products are having an impact on the market. It’s fantastic value and has good size 4.7inch screen for decent visibility.

Remember, if you’re a fan of perusing online betting markets or playing online casino games, a larger screen can be just what you need. Anything above 4.5inches is about right.

Nokia Lumia 710 & Lumia 800 is a Windows Phone 7!

Posted on 27 October 2011 by yizhan

New sets of Windows Phone 7 have been revealed  — the Nokia Lumia 710 and the Nokia Lumia 800 which basically looks almost the same as the Nokia N9.  Nokia CEO Stephen Elop has lastly put to rest several weeks of conjecture by unveiling Nokia’s initial batch of Windows Phones with the Nokia World conference. It’s been a long time arriving – news of a Nokia/Microsoft partnership first broke last February – but Nokia has finally debuted the Lumia 800 as well as the Lumia 710.

 

Nokia Lumia 800 specs:

  • 3.7″ AMOLED display @ 480×800 pixels (252ppi)
  • 1.4 GHz processor
  • Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset
  • 3D Graphics HW Accelerator
  • 512MB RAM
  • 16GB
  • HSDPA 14.4Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 8MP autofocus camera, Carl Zeiss optics, flash
  • 720p video recording
  • FM Radio tuner
  • GPS w/ aGPS support
  • Li-Ion 1450mAh battery
  • Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

The Nokia Lumia 800 sports a curved 3.7-inch WVGA ClearBlack AMOLED display, has the same design as the Nokia N9, only with a smaller display. The Carl Zeiss optics assures us the quality of the camera will be the same as the N9.

 

Nokia Lumia 710 specs:

  • 3.7″ LCD display @ 480×800 pixels (252ppi)
  • 1.4 GHz processor
  • Qualcomm MSM8255 chipset
  • 3D Graphics HW Accelerator
  • 512MB RAM
  • 8GB
  • HSDPA 14.4Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • 5MP autofocus camera, flash
  • 720p video recording
  • FM Radio tuner
  • GPS w/ aGPS support
  • Li-Ion 1300mAh battery
  • Windows Phone 7.5 Mango

The Lumia 710 (formerly known as the Sabre) looks like the Nokia C7 or Nokia 701 and is probably targeted to the younger crowd. It does not have Carl Zeiss optics though but should be cheaper than the Lumia 800.

Upcoming: XPERIA™ PLAY
