Today we are seeing a couple of great releases, as well as a highly-requested feature in Mac OS X. Let’s jump into the news and give you all the details!
Hot on the heels for the brand-spanking new Nokia Lumia 930? The device has started going on sale in multiple markets across the world, including Europe, Asia and the Middle East. These markets won’t be alone. The rollout will continue, but there is bad news for many of us – it won’t be coming to the USA.
Nokia plans to keep its focus on the Lumia 1520 and Icon, instead. Those outside the USA will be able to get it for $599. The device is a beast, with specs including a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 20MP/1.2MP cameras, a 2420 mAh battery and more.
Opinion: We had our good time with the device during its announcement and now we have one on our possession to play around with. You can go ahead and check out our hands-on post, as well as the unboxing and first impressions.
While Nokia is not giving any love to the USA, LG is making up for it by giving us priority. LG has just announced that the G Pad 10.1 will make its debut this month in the USA, with Europe, Asia and Latin America following later this month.
Price will vary, as expected, so we should be hearing details about the LG G Pad 10.1 coming soon. You can expect a 10-inch 1200x800p display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and 5MP/1.3MP cameras.
Opinion: We also gave the LG G Pad 10.1 a test. You can check out our hands-on post for all the details. I happen to be considering buying one of these, so they are not bad affordable tablets.
Apple’s Yosemite announcement brought forth many improvements and new features, but some of us were focusing on smaller details. It’s those smaller details that we have been begging for for a long time, so the announcement of a dark theme came as a blessing to Mac OS X users.
In the latest Yosemite Preview (version 3), this feature has finally been enabled. Those with a developer account can test it out, the rest of us can wait until Yosemite comes around.
Opinion: I happen to like the clean and light theme Mac OS X offers, but I know many of you will prefer a more solid design.
