    Apple Watch release date : Starts at $349, coming early 2015



    Apple Watch unveiled: Starts at $349, coming early 2015 (hands-on), Apple’s iWatch may not be the most-hyped gadget of all the time, but it’s certainly one of the most-anticipated products of recent years. Now it’s here and Apple’s simply calling it Apple Watch. It will be available in early 2015 , starting at $349.



    Design

    The final Apple Watch design isn’t too far from the made-up renders that we’ve seen in recent weeks. Its sports a rectangular-shaped design, one knob and a single button.

    The smartwatch display comes in two sizes measured by height: 38mm and 42mm. Both are slightly smaller than the entire Pebble Steel watch height, which measures 46mm.

    Apple Watch’s screen is surrounded by casing made of custom alloys of stainless steel and aluminum that, according to the company, stands up physical demands of daily wear.

    Beyond the “Apple Watch” and “Apple Watch Sport” versions, a special “Apple Watch Edition” mixes in 18-karat yellow or rose gold for a premium look. It goes well with that gold iPhone 5S for sure.

    That brings the metal colors to six: stainless steel, silver aluminum, space black stainless steel, space gray aluminum, 18-karat yellow gold and 18-karat rose gold.



    The Watch comes in three ‘collections’ and the faces are customizable.

    Apple

    The watch runs on a brand new S1 processor, is equipped with a gyro accelerometer and can piggyback off the WiFi and GPS on your phone. You press down on the crown to get to the home screen. The watch will take dictation, with and offers very precise synchronized time to plus or minus 50 milliseconds.

    It’s worth nothing that your credit card will be charged upon placing your pre-order. However, there’s no word on exact delivery date of the accessory. The company is said to be targeting late 2015 to ship orders.

    New AMD Notebook APUs Coming, Carrizo and Carrizo-L ETAs Exposed

    Name:  APU_A10_AMD.jpg
Views: 304
Size:  16.1 KB

    Intel may still have most of the laptop market well in hand, but Advanced Micro Devices has some mobile accelerated processing units gloating around too. APUs that will make way for new ones soon enough.
    It appears that the Sunnyvale, California-based company is serious about the decision it made a few years back, to not have its chips described as Intel CPU “foils.”

    After all, with Intel having released the Core M mobile CPU, and prepared to launch other Broadwell units by the end of the year, this would be the point where AMD would make its counter-offer.

    This isn't happening. Instead, Advanced Micro Devices has chosen March 2015 as the arrival date of its next-generation Accelerated Processing Units.
    The AMD Carrizo APUs
    Carrizo is the codename that the company uses to refer to the products, in-house. The APUs will replace the Kaveri APUs in March 2015.

    Those will be the mid-range chips. As far as we can tell, AMD doesn't have any interest in the high-end market, so the Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs will keep running rampant there.

    There will be another batch of Carrizo though, which will be known as Carrizo-L and will replace the Beema and Mullins units. The Carrizo-L will supposedly debut in December this year, 2014.

    The whole “we don't want our chips to be defined by the rivalry with Intel” bit still applies though, since the Carrizo-L will not be aimed at the Core M. Instead, they will challenge the Intel Pentium and Celeron processors.
    The specifications of Carrizo
    It's impossible to guess them at this stage, but just because we don't know the exact core counts, or even the model numbers, doesn't mean that we're completely in the dark.

    According to some reports, all Carrizo APUs are built from Excavator cores and are fabricated on the 28nm production technology node. Also, they possess controllers for DDR3-2133 memory.

    Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Ubuntu and SLED operating systems will be supported across the board, and you can even expect an ARM micro-core somewhere inside, handling the data security.
    The number of design wins
    This is something even harder to speculate on than the specifications themselves. AMD has had a pretty lame luck when it comes to OEMs, but maybe it will do better this time than it did with Beema/Mullins and everything else.

    What remains is to wonder when and where AMD will unveil a true ARM-x86 combo processor. We only know it's in the works, nothing else.

    Lenovo announces Yoga 3 Pro, successor to the best Windows laptop you can buy

    A sleeker design and Intel's Broadwell processors come to Lenovo's convertible

    Name:  yoga3pro3_verge_super_wide.jpg
Views: 418
Size:  46.7 KB

    Ask most people which is the best Windows laptop on the market today, and the answer you'll get will be near universal: Lenovo's Yoga 2 Pro. From top to bottom, it's perhaps the best convertible notebook you can buy. That's about to change: Lenovo has just announced the IdeaPad Yoga 3 Pro, and it's even sleeker than last year's model. The Yoga 3 Pro is 17 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter than the Yoga 2 Pro, a change that results in it "weighing less than a bottle of water" according to Lenovo's claims. That impressive 3200 x 1800 QHD+ display is still here — though hopefully without the color reproduction issues that plagued Yoga 2 Pro early on.

    And since users will be flipping the Yoga 3 Pro into tablet or stand mode fairly often, Lenovo has improved upon the hinge design. This one features a "watchband" hinge that the company claims is "hand-assembled from more than 800 individual pieces of steel and aluminum" Can it match the fantastic, works-at-any-angle hinge that's in Microsoft's Surface Pro 3? We'll need one in-hand before making that call, but the company is promising better rigidity with the new design.

    Everything's powered by Intel's latest Core M-70 processor. Yes, Broadwell chips are finally here, and Lenovo is promising up to nine hours of battery life. The Yoga 3 Pro will be available with up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of flash storage, though the model found in most stores will have a 256GB drive. And yes, this time it's coming with 5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi out of the gate. Spotty and unreliable Wi-Fi was another complaint that some users had about the Yoga 2 Pro (and there are plenty of support forum threads to show it), so hopefully this is another area where Lenovo has made some refinements. The Yoga 3 Pro be available starting at $1,349 from Lenovo's web store and Best Buy at the end of October in three colors: silver, orange, and gold.

    Modular Smartwatches Are One Step Closer to Reality As Blocks Opens Up Pre-Orders

    Name:  full-render.png
Views: 290
Size:  186.3 KB

    Google is trying to build modular smartphones with the Ara project, but you can’t deny it would be massively cool if the same concept could be applied to other devices, like smartwatches.

    The company behind the project has just announced it was setting up an exclusive membership program that will allow 1,000 interested parties to pre-order the first version of the modular Blocks watch for the cheapest price possible.

    BGR reports that, starting October 15, Blocks will begin the pre-ordering process and you can register for a smartwatch by pledging $50 / €39, which will get you a limited edition fascia for the blocks and priority shipment.

    Blocks’ plan is to start a crowd-funding campaign in early 2015, so you will have to wait quite a while until you can actually enjoy the device’s capabilities. We suppose you’re going to be lucky to have the watch in your possession by mid-2015.

    When the watch launches, it is going to cost a lot more; so if your mind is committed to Blocks, you should take advantage of the limited time offer.

    Furthermore, we’re told core blocks – the touchscreen, display, microprocessor and Bluetooth chip – will be priced anywhere between $120 to $150 / €94 to €118. Additional blocks will come with a varying cost of $20 to $40 / €16 to €32.

    Blocks won Intel's Wearable challenge
    Blocks always revealed it was the recipient of Intel’s "Make It Wearable" challenge, so it has been awarded a prize of $50k / €39k. Now the company will go on to compete for the even grander prize of $500,000 / €395,000.

    For those of you who don’t remember what Blocks is all about and don’t understand all the fuss around it, let us explain.

    Blocks wants to allow buyers to customize their smartwatch to suit their lifestyles and activities. So if you’re a big fan of workouts, you will want something that’s more lightweight around your wrist and is packed with activity-tracking sensors; but if you’re a business person, you will opt for a more premium look.

    With this intent in mind, Blocks will offer custom swappable blocks that make up the strap, each one capable of completing a specific task, multiple display options (including LCD, E-Ink or touch display) and a choice between a variety of sensors.

    The best part is that Blocks will continue to refresh its offerings in order to keep up with the market trends, so if a new type of smartwatch display technology appears, you’ll be sure to find it at Blocks.

    Google Nexus 6 with Android Lollipop Officially Introduced, on Pre-Order from October 29

    Name:  Nexus6.jpg
Views: 281
Size:  48.7 KB

    Google has finally taken the wraps off its newest Android flagship smartphone, the Nexus 6. As expected, the smartphone will be powered by the latest version of Google's mobile platform, which is called Android Lollipop.

    It appears that Google successfully secured the Nexus 6 name after all, even though previous rumors suggested that the company faced some issues on the matter.

    Along with the Nexus 6 announcement, Google also introduced the new version of Android, namely Lollipop, as well as the Nexus 9 tablet manufactured by HTC.

    As expected, the Nexus 6 has been especially released by Google to fill a gap in its offering. Until today, the search giant did not have any device that could compete with other flagship phablet launched by other handset makers.

    Nexus 6 is Google's alternative to Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Apple's iPhone 6 Plus, as well as other phablets in the same price range.

    Google new flagship smartphone boasts a huge 6-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution and 496ppi (pixel per density).

    On the inside, the device is armed with a powerful 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 Krait 450 processor, an Adreno 440 graphics processing unit and 3GB of RAM.

    There will be two Nexus 6 variants available for purchase via Google Play Store, 32GB and 64GB. Neither of these versions will come with microSD card slot, but this was to be expected.

    Google's phablet seems to be a US affair for the moment

    The Nexus 6 also packs an impressive 13-megapixel f/2.0 photo snapper on the back, which features dual-LED flash, autofocus and video recording. There's also a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera, which indicates that Google isn't too fond of selfie smartphones yet.

    According to Google, the Nexus 6 will be powered by a 3,220 mAh non-removable battery, which supports Turbo Charging. This will provide users with up to 6 hours of use after only 15 minutes of charging.

    The company also confirmed that the Nexus 6 should definitely offer 24 hours of usage, though it's unclear under what conditions.

    Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order in the United States beginning October. All major carriers in the country will offer the smartphone, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular.

    The SIM free 32GB variant will be available for purchase via Google Play Store for $649 (€510) outright. Pre-order are scheduled to start on October 29 and shipping should commence in early November.

    No word on price tag for the 64GB model, but we do know Nexus 6 will come in two different color options: Midnight Blue and Cloud White.

    Google announces HTC-made Nexus 9 tablet, coming November 3rd

    Name:  nexus9.jpg
Views: 270
Size:  48.6 KB

    Prices start at $399, and you can pre-order beginning October 17th

    Google has just announced the Nexus 9, an Android 5.0 tablet that the company designed in collaboration with HTC. Pre-orders will begin on October 17th and you can expect the tablet to start showing up in stores on November 3rd. Nexus 9 is available in either black or white and comes in three configurations: 16GB for $399, 32GB for $479, and an LTE-enabled 32GB model for $599. Sadly, you can't expand that storage through microSD, so we'd recommend opting for the 32GB SKU. (The LTE version and a "sand" color won't be released until "later this year.")

    Google's planning to launch Nexus 9 in 29 countries over the coming weeks. In the US, it'll be sold through Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, Google Play, Office Depot, Office Max, QVC/HSN, Radio Shack, Staples, and Walmart. US wireless carriers including T-Mobile will also carry it directly; the Uncarrier will kick off sales November 12th according to this tweets.

    As with most HTC-manufactured products, the Nexus 9 features a premium metal build (at least on the sides) and an 8.9-inch QVGA (2048x1536) display. That screen has a ratio of 4:3 as opposed to 16:9, and HTC has also brought its BoomSound speaker technology to this tablet. Google is also emphasizing what's powering the hardware here: a 64-bit processor — the first for a Nexus product. More specifically, it's Nvidia's Tegra K1 chipset. The device also features 2GB of RAM and, on average, around 9 hours of battery life.

    Google says this form factor is "small enough to easily carry around in one hand, yet big enough to work on." And there's a real focus on productivity here: Google is also releasing a keyboard attachment that "magnetically attaches to the Nexus 9, folds into two different angles and rests securely on your lap like a laptop." So all at once, Google and HTC are going after both the Microsoft Surface and the huge number of consumers who seek aftermarket keyboards for Apple's iPad line. The Nexus 9 certainly isn't cheap — especially compared to Amazon's cutthroat pricing — but seems like a solid piece of hardware meant to fully showcase Android L's work and play capabilities.
