With a slick design and a 3.2 inches HVGA capacitive touchscreen, i think the Nova can compete in other Android phone that is in the market today.

The problem with the iPhone4’s antenna, loosing signal while gripping lower portion which we seldom do when we are making a call, has been a problem since the day it was released in the public. almost everybody noticed this problem. Well Apple responded on this issue and said.
“Gripping any mobile phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.”
I’ve read some articles from other blogs and found out that by just putting a bumper ( new product by apple for the iPhone 4) it will solve the issue of the antenna problem. The bumper is a plastic strips that wraps around the iPhone 4 and comes up with different colors that gives stylish look for your iPhone 4. The bumper cost $29.00 and only pits with the iPhone 4
As Apple mention, by avoiding to grip the lower left corner of the iPhone 4 or by just putting a protective casing,signal strength will not drop. Well in this case putting a bumper to your iPhone 4 will resolve the issue. hmm… looks like a good investment to me.
Looks like Microsoft Surface got a competition. This coming June, Sony is about to release their latest interactive touch-screen device that was developed by AtracSys and Sony as well, the Atrac-Trable. Well most of its feature is really much like of the Microsoft Surface but with added ability. I have only seen this tech stuff in the movie like the Minority Report and Iron Man, well i think this time its for real.
The sony Atrac-Table is a 35inches wide multi touch-screen HD display and controllable by gestures, and equipped with two two built-in Sony ISS XCD-V60 cameras which detects motion and project the 3D object. Same as the Microsoft Surface, it also has the ability to interact what ever digital object placed over it. Much more, Sony claims that it can also determine your gender, your age, and even your emotion. Imagine a device that can see or determine our emotion, cool isn’t it?
Price is not available yet, but for this kind of tech stuff that really shows a big change in our technology today I think it would not be far from Microsoft Surface starting price of $12,500 or maybe higher for its additional capabilities. Well lets just wait..
Microsoft Surface, A multi-touch screen device developed by Microsoft, capable of responding to a natural hand gesture and real-world objects. Keyboards and mouse are not needed, you can just grab digital object with your hands and drag it. The Microsoft surface has the ability to identify and interact with an object place on the screen allowing you to transfer information between devices like digital camera and mobile phone.

Microsoft Surface technology uses cameras and images in the infrared spectrum, making it possible to recognize different object that was placed on the screen and then processed by the computer to display the content of digital devices such as camera and mobile phone. The user can now interact with it just simply by using hand gesture instead of mouse and keyboard.
Microsoft Surface’s technology started in 2001, when Stivie Batiche of Microsoft Hardware and Andy Wilson of Microsoft research began exploring the concept of a interactive table. Their goal is to mix physical and virtual world to provide rich interactive experience. This idea was then presented by the New Consumer Products Group to Bill Gates, and then a month after the first fully working prototype was created, based on an IKEA table and sheets of architect vellum as a diffuser. Microsoft Surface begun evolving as more application was created. In 2007 the team developed and became the Surface Computing group and begun refining the prototype’s functionality and application. They have built more prototype for use by some software developers, hardware developers and researchers. In 2007 the team shift from prototyping to building the and preparing to sell the first fully functional multi touch-screen multi-user computer and was commercialize in 2008.
