has launched the ThinkPad Twist in India for Rs. 71,000. As per the
company, this convertible can be used as a tablet or a laptop.
ThinkPad Twist can also be quickly converted into a stand or tent
mode, where the laptop becomes a media presenter.
ThinkPad Twist also comes with a bunch of preloaded apps such as
Fruit Ninja, Evernote, AccuWeather, Skype, Amazon Kindle and more.
reason the ThinkPad is called the 'Twist' is because the display can
be rotated at 180 degrees and can be folded on the keyboard to give
users the utility of a tablet. The Twist also runs on Windows 8,
which is designed as a tablet, as well as a desktop OS. The Twist is
available in mocha black colour, is a mere 20mm thick and weighs a

But just two days after the
S4's launch, Apple has opened up an entire new web page to tout why people have
loved the iPhone for so many years and to seemingly throw some negative claims
against Android and Samsung devices.
Apple has also begun emailing a
version of this webpage to its own customers.
Apple leads its new page by
explaining that people love the iPhone because of its ease of use and various
capabilities. Apple then touts its high customer satisfaction with the iPhone
via its numerous J.D. Power and Associates awards:
Apparently love can be
measured. In eight straight studies by J.D. Power and Associates — that’s every
study since the first iPhone was introduced — iPhone has been ranked “Highest
in Customer Satisfaction with Consumer Smartphones.” iPhone ranked highest in
the study, which reviewed the following categories: performance, physical
design, features, and ease of operation.
Apple also explains the
resolution and quality of the Retina display found on the iPhone and other
The Retina display on iPhone
ushered in the era of super-high-resolution displays. Its pixel density is so
high, your eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. The images and words are
amazingly vivid and crisp. Everything just looks so real. In fact, once you see
a Retina display, you’re never satisfied with anything less. Yet it remains a
feature found only on iPhone and other Apple products.
It’s impressive that iPhone 5
gives you long battery life so you can easily make it through your day. You get
up to 8 hours of talk time, up to 8 hours of browsing over cellular networks,
and up to 10 hours of video playback.2 But it’s extraordinary that we fit such
a powerful battery into such a thin and light design — all thanks to Apple
scientists who created unique battery chemistry instead of settling for a
large, off-the-shelf option.
Apple’s new webpage also slams phones that tout large numbers of megapixels. Instead, Apple notes how popular the iPhone is with Flickr
The iSight camera on iPhone is
the world’s most popular camera. It’s an amazing camera that’s always in your
pocket. And while other smartphones simply tout large amounts of megapixels,
taking great pictures is about so much more. The 8MP camera on iPhone 5
captures great photo data, and the hardware and software work together to make
behind-the-scenes image and color adjustments. So it’s easy for anyone to take
impressive photos in various lighting conditions.
Apple touts Siri, iOS’s deep
integration with iPhone hardware, iCloud content syncing, and AppleCare
Siri, the intelligent
assistant, lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, place
calls, set reminders, and more. You can even ask Siri who’s winning the game.
And with Eyes Free, you can use Siri to get things done in your car without
taking your eyes off the road. You can speak naturally to Siri — it understands
what you say, knows what you mean, and helps you do the things you do every
day. All you have to do is ask.
io6 : The Worlds Most Advanced
Mobile Operating Syestem
iPhone is so easy to use thanks
to iOS 6. Innovative features like Siri and FaceTime plus built-in apps make
iPhone not just useful but fun. iOS updates download right on iPhone, so the
latest iOS version is just a tap away. And because Apple makes both the
hardware and the software, iOS features are designed to work perfectly with
iPhone features like the Retina display, gyro, and accelerometer. iOS is also
the platform for over 800,000 apps that let your iPhone do even more.
Samsung has announced the
launch of some cool accessories for its flagship smartphone, Galaxy S4. The
list includes S Band, S View Cover, Game Pad and Wireless Charging Pad.
The first is the S Band. This
is meant to go with the fitness suite that Samsung is including in the device.
You wear it on your wrist and go about your day, and your phone will tell you
how fit your life is. It mostly works as a pedometer and measures how many
steps you take, how many calories you burned and the distance you walked. It
also tells you about your sleep efficiency by keeping track of how much you
move while sleeping. It has the potential to be a big hit with the fitness
buffs out there.
The Game Pad is curiously
lacking the S branding, but other than that, it looks like it could be a fairly
useful accessory for those of us who are really into mobile games. The snap-on
controller bears a striking resemblance to the Xbox 360 controller, right down
to the A, B, X and Y buttons. It uses
Bluetooth and NFC to pair with your phone in one touch, and is available for a
range of phones that have screen sizes ranging from 4 inches to 6.3 inches.
Wireless charging is becoming a
staple feature with high-end smartphones these days, and Samsung doesn’t want
to disappoint. With this accessory, you won’t have to face the hassle of trying
to plug in your micro-USB cable into the phone but then realising that it's
upside down. Depending on the price, this has the potential to be very useful
for those of us who hate micro-USB cables.
Wireless Charging Pad/Cover
gives you cordless charging solution.
Nothing really unique to see
here, this is basically the S View Cover without the gaping hole. They’re
available in a variety of different colours, ranging from the sober black and
white to the bright yellow and blue. These textured covers will undoubtedly be
a big hit with consumers.
If you’re worried about dinging
the back of your brand new Galaxy S4, fret not. Samsung’s got your back (see
what I did there?) with the Protective Cover+. Available in the same colour
options as the flip covers, these are designed to protect your phone from damage
caused by falls and other things gravity likes to do.
Extra Battery Kit
High-end smartphones aren’t
exactly known for having good battery lives, and the Galaxy S4 may be no
different. Samsung, coming to the rescue again, is offering extra battery kits
in case you ever run out of juice and can’t find a spot to recharge. It also
comes in a nifty case where you can put your drained battery.
Heart Rate Monitor
The HRM works with the Running
Mate app to let you keep an eye on your heart-rate while you’re exercising.
This will once again be fairly popular with fitness buffs, since you can switch
up your exercise depending on how your heart’s pumping. It monitors your heart
rate in real time, and going by the trends these days, probably has a share
button or something.
Another feature for the fitness
buffs, the body scale, lets you as you might expect, measure your weight. The
key feature of this scale, as opposed to any other scale, is that you can send
your weight directly to your phone to use for fitness-related purposes through
Bluetooth. It supports up to seven users (probably not at the same time) and is
compatible with the S4’s S-Health 2.0 app.
Headset with slim flat cable.
There are 2 speakers in each headphone (Woofer and Twitter speakers).
S View Cover
And there you have it. All of
the official accessories that Samsung’s announced for the Galaxy S4 so far. Let
us know which one you’ll be getting if you decide to buy an S4 in the comments
Rumors gave way to confirmation from mobile boss, JK Shin
that the Galaxy Note 8.0 will be shown off at MWC this year. You can probably
guess how big the screen is going to be (the clue is in the name). Samsung
seems to be intent on introducing devices at every possible size from small
budget smartphone through phablets to large tablets. We expect it to run
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or later and sport a quad-core processor. The resolution
is likely to be 1280×800 pixels and the big draw (if you’ll pardon the pun) is
the inclusion of Samsung’s super stylus – the S-Pen.
According to the rumours the 7-inch tablet will be called
the Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch, as it succeeds the Galaxy Tab 2 at that same screen
size. Similarly the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1-inch should be succeeded by the Galaxy
Tab 3 10.1-inch. More interestingly we have the Samsung Galaxy Note 8-inch
tablet set to be revealed.
The tablet is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core Samsung Exynos 4
processor, has 2GB of RAM and comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal
memory. There's also a microSD card for extra memory expansion, along with a
4600mAh, non-removable battery.
The Galaxy Note 8.0 allows users to use the S Pen on the
capacitive "hardware" buttons for back and menu, comes preloaded with
the Awesome Note app and includes an infrared port that allows it to act as a
universal remote control for devices around the home.

Samsung's TouchWiz user interface.
Pricing of the new 7-inch and 8-inch Samsung tablets has
been sniffed at by Taiwan based DigiTimes which suggests that the smaller model
will retail as low as US$149, while the 8-inch Note tablet will retail for
between US$249 and US$299.
The Volkswagen e-Up has been revealed ahead of its public debut at the 2013 Frankfurt motor show in September. It's an electric version of the Up city car that will go on sale in the UK in early 2014.
The car can be recharged to as much as 80% of its energy storage capacity within 30 minutes. A Combined Charging System (CCS), which supports both DC and AC charging and makes charging an easier affair is offered as an option.
With nearly zero noise, the e-up! is powered by an electric motor with 80bhp peak power – without any disturbing gearshift interruptions or powertrain noise. Its continuous power is 53bhp. Its maximum torque of 210 Newton metres is available immediately with the first revolution. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h within 14 seconds and reaches a top speed of 135 km/h. The lithium-ion battery integrated in the underfloor area has a total energy storage capacity of 18.7 Kilowatt-hours (kWh); this means that the car can cover up to 150 km (per NEDC) on a single charge thanks to its low vehicle weight of 1,185 kg.
Inside, the cabin features light-grey seat covers with blue top-stitched seams, and special leather and chrome accents get slapped on too. Deliveries of the e-up! are set to begin from early next year.
The numbers now please. A peak power of 60kW ensures that the E-Up! races from 0-100kmph in 14 seconds and maxes out at a top speed of 135kmph. Inside, there is seating for four people including the driver. In September this year, Volkswagen will be showing the E-Up! at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with bookings opening thereafter.
The Up’s attractive styling is slightly altered with wraparound LED lighting elements in the front and rear reflectors. Bespoke, aerodynamically styled 15-inch aluminum wheels are fitted with 165/65 Dunlop tires. Inside, the instrument cluster and the central display are modified to reveal the vehicle’s charge. Further differentiation from conventionally powered Ups is made inside by unique stitching, and added leather and chrome.
The official public premiere of the e-up! will be at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show later this year.
