Nokia tablet coming in May?

Nokia had announced that it is planning to show the new Lumia on May 14 in London. Nokia stated that the story of Lumia continues on that day. But what is the story about anyway? Could be a Nokia Windows tablet.

According to the latest sources from India, Nokia set to unveil its first Windows tablet in London. The Nokia tablet is going to power by either Windows 8 or Windows RT.

The sources added that the Nokia tablet has a 10.1-inch display with 1366 x 768 resolution, 1GHz of processor and 1GB of RAM. The measurement of the body is 256.6×175.3×9.7mm and the device is weighted at 676g. Nothing about pricing so far, also the specs are not most impressive, looks like low or mainstream device for masses. 

This could be just another rumor but do not rule out it yet because Nokia Lumia is quite popular in India.

According to new IDC research, in the first quarter of 2013 were sold 418.6 millions cell phones. Over 51% of sold devices are classified as smartphones. It is the first time, when number of sold smartphones is greater than regular cell phones.

Samsung broke his own sales record of Android based smartphones. The largest seller of Android based mobile devices in the world has sold 4 million Galaxy S IV in four days. For comparison, Samsung has sold three million Galaxy S III within 21 days.

The leader in smartphone sales is still Apple, which managed to sell five million iPhone 5 during its first weekend after release.



Thorsten Heins, the CEO of BlackBerry (formely RIM) recently admitted, that the future for tablets is not very bright. He argued that the current tablet market is very crowded, and that within 5 yers time there won't be a demand for the tablets we know today. Heins said that there is a space in the market for devices which have bigger screens that the mobile devices, but not in the shape of a tablet.

It's not sure whether this opinion is objective, or it is influenced by not-so-great launch of the Playbook tablets. It is sure, however, that the time will eventually bring the answer.

Connecting iPhone with binoculars was the original idea of Fujikake and Mac Daniel Nguyen. Employees of HI Resolution Enterprise developed a universal adapter fits almost every model of smartphone and binoculars. The real focal length of the lens is greatly extended from the built-in camera phone. 10x or 20x magnification is not a problem - the only limit is the quality and capabilities of binoculars. By using this combination, hobbyists can create a professional kit for digiscoping - view for more people, save photos and videos.
