Feedly is back and now we got all the juicy news for you! We are getting the first rumored Galaxy Note 4 specs, while Amazon and Oculus are looking to give you great deals on their upcoming devices and services.
New rumors prove the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 may be a pretty big step above the current Galaxy Note 3. The device is said to come with a stunning AMOLED QHD (2560x1440p) display. We are not sure how big it could be, but we can assume it will be one large display, as it is expected of these Note devices.
Other rumored specs include a Snapdragon 805, but only for the USA, Korea, China and Japan versions. Others markets will receive Exynos 5433-touting smartphones. There’s also said to be a 16 MP camera, paired with a 2 MP front-facing shooter.
Opinion: These specs sound pretty awesome, but they are starting to become the standard in the industry. We are sure the Galaxy Note 3 will be a great device, though. That is, if you are a fan of large displays.
Amazon seems to be sticking its fork in every media consumption field out there, but they still haven’t played around with music streaming subscriptions. There’s teh Amazon Cloud Player, but that only uses your own music, not Amazon’s. This is said to change soon, with new rumors of the online retailer planning to announce a music streaming subscription service soon.
This project is said to add value to Amazon Prime. Subscribers will be able to listen to music in an unlimited fashion, which could explain why Amazon recently raised the annual subscription price to $99, as opposed to $79.
Sony and Warner are said to be on board, but it seems Universal was not met the price. There is also a pool of smaller studios added. It’s said newer albums will not be available for unlimited streaming, but it should be a great deal for those who already use Amazon Prime.
Opinion: Amazon Prime just got a bit better, and with this possible announcement coming as soon as this week, I can’t imagine how the music streaming market will look.
Ever wondered how much the Oculus Rift would cost? We assumed it wouldn’t be cheap, but it seems Mark Zuckerberg wants this gaming virus to spread as quickly and widely as possible. The company is expecting to sell over a million units of the first consumer version.
This will be done by selling the Oculus Rift for as cheap as possible, something Mark Zuckerberg is really stressing for.
“Mark Zuckerberg, especially, wants to bring the cost down, him more than me. I do, too, but at the same time we were planning to run a business, hopefully a break-even or profitable business off of this, not a money-losing business. Mark is much more in the mindset of ‘Let’s get this to scale with the best quality product at the lowest cost possible.”
Opinion: Those are some fighting words! Reaching a wider market may be the smartest way to go. After all, Facebook’s main form of income is not through gaming and devices. What they want is mass adoption – they will worry about money later.
