Samsung’s new 10nm 64GB mobile flash memory chips already in production; smaller, faster, cooler

by Sean Stewart on
tagged , , ,

In news that may not come as a surprise to too many folks, Samsung has announced that its next-gen memory chip, the 64GB eMMC Pro Class 2000, is already in production. As we know, this technology is among the fastest moving in the world, so chips becoming smaller, faster, and running cooler is no huge surprise, but the speed at which they evolve is mind-boggling.

These little 10nm fellas rock a 20 percent smaller physical footprint, and Samsung claims 30 percent advantages in both performance and manufacturing productivity compared to their last generation chip. The chips will have a write speed of 2,000 IOPS (input/output per second) and a read speed of 5,000 IOPS. That’s a 33% increase in write speed and a 42% increase in read speed compared with the previous generation. Seeing as these chips are already in production, they’ll be coming soon to a device near you. Hit the break for the full press release. » Read the rest

Surprise!! Pantech Magnus Smartphone Has been Outed, Looks Destined To Be Part Of AT&T’s Growing Arsenal

Are you on AT&T, but fancy owning a mid-level smartphone instead of say a Galaxy S III or Galaxy Note II? Well great you’re in luck as it appears Ma Bell has a modest Pantech device on the way called Magnus. Thanks to notorious leaker evleaks, we have a clear image of the device— also known as Batsu or model number P9090— operating on what looks to be a needlessly customized version of at least Ice Cream Sandwich at the very least. In addition to the on-screen display with the trademark 3 soft keys, the device seems to have a small likeness to the Pantech Flex smartphone, though the display on the Magnus seems to be a smidge bigger and is highlighted by the usual AT&T tramp stamp. Additional details like the processor speed, RAM and storage size are not available at the moment, but now that the cat’s been let out the bag, we suspect we’ll get more details about this puppy sooner than later.

Samsung’s highly popular Galaxy S III handset is not only popular with consumers, it is increasingly popular with carriers who want to offer a high end device for use on 4G LTE networks. The latest carrier to offer the Galaxy S III is Cricket, which announced it will be available starting on Black Friday, November 23rd, for $549.99 with no contract. Buyers can opt for a data plan for as little as $50 per month for 2GB of data.

In conjunction with the announcement of the Galaxy S III joining their device portfolio, Cricket also released a list of additional locations with 4G LTE service. The new markets include Philadelphia, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Laredo, Corpus Christi and the Brownsville-McAllen-Harlingen market, Texas. These join the existing 4G LTE service areas of Las Vegas and Tucson.

If you are interested in getting a Galaxy S III on Cricket, visit one of their retail stores or www.mycricket.com for updates on availability.

Looking to pick up a Droid DNA when it launches on Verizon November 21st? Wirefly has a deal up that’ll net you this superphone for $150 if you preorder through them. For comparison, the Droid DNA will run $199 directly from Verizon. For the incredibly high-end specs of this phone, that’s a steal. That’s $150 for a 5-inch, 1080p screen, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and Jelly Bean right out of the box. Tough deal to pass up, especially if you’re eligible for an upgrade this holiday season.

Anybody going to be picking up one of these later this month?

Special edition DROIDs headed to Verizon employees while the rest of us look on in envy

by William Metzger on
tagged , , , ,

Verizon employees are getting some special treatment once again, some of us are still seething over the awesome employees-only red and black Razr Maxx from last year, and now Verizon is laughing at us yet again. Rumor has spilled that more special edition red/black DROIDs are on their way to those on Verizon’s payroll for the DROID RAZR M and DROID RAZR MAXX HD. Interestingly enough a special red DROID DNA as well as Windows Phone 8X are also mentioned. No word on whether they will be locked to employee specific usage such as the last round was, so be careful before you try bidding $2000 on Ebay for one of these puppies.

Echofon for Android now available in Google Play Store

by Jeff Causey on
tagged ,

While it seems like there are more than enough Twitter clients in existence, new ones seem to pop up on a fairly regular basis. Echofon for Android is a good example as it went from an alpha release only a month ago to being available in the Google Play Store today. Echofon is not really a new Twitter client as it has been available for a long time on Apple platforms, both desktop/laptop units and mobile devices as well as Windows-based PCs. The expansion to include support for Android devices is a significant new direction that may make it especially attractive for users who are moving from an iOS device to an Android based device. » Read the rest

Android AOSP 4.2 keyboard now available in the Play Store

by Colton Kaiser on
tagged , , ,

Been fancying the new gesture-enabled keyboard that debuted with Android 4.2? There’s no need to fret; the stock AOSP keyboard is now available to download in the Play Store. The keyboard replacement brings all the same features you’d expect to receive if you were running it on an Android 4.2 device, including Swype-like typing.

Currently, the keyboard is officially supported on devices running Android 4.1 and above, though some users are reporting that they have been able to install it on earlier builds of Ice Cream Sandwich. Additionally, the developer hopes to backport the new AOSP keyboard to Gingerbread devices, but of course there are no guarantees. Snap the QR code or hit the Play Store download link below to get in on the action.

White 64GB HTC One S with Android 4.1 now available in Taiwan

by Sean Stewart on
tagged , , ,

In what appears to be a regular HTC One S in one photo is in fact a white 64GB One S beast rocking Android 4.1 out of the box that we mentioned last month. It looks like Taiwan is the lucky country to land this beast, at least initially. Along with 4.1 out of the box, this device also rocks the  latest version of HTC Sense (4+). Not to mention that mammoth storage weighing in at a hefty 64GB. All other vitals are the same as the One S we know and love as far as RAM, processor, and display. No word on any other countries landing this bad-boy. Pricing will come in at 17,900 Taiwan dollars, or about $616 or €485.
