Motorola uploads official Moto 360 demo video

At Google I/O, the Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch Android Wear smartwatches were announced along with a proper demonstration. Both smartwearables also went on sale the same day on the Google Play Store.

Sensing the disappointment among early Android and Moto fans, Motorola recently has uploaded a demo video to show how the watch looks like in action. In the demo video, Motorola product marketing manager Cathay Bi gives us a walkthrough of the Moto 360, confirming that it comes with a stainless steel case, and a genuine leather wrist strap (we assume that this is customizable anyway).

Running Android Wear – just like Samsung’s Gear Live and LG’s G Watch - the Moto 360 displays notifications at the bottom of its screen. These can be dismissed the same way you’re doing it on an Android smartphone. The custom watch screen backgrounds designed for the Moto 360 actually seem quite a bit more stylish than those shown off at Google I/O on stage. You can also take (or reject) calls with the Moto 360.

Voice command also gets a quick demo, and works in much the same way as touchless control on the Moto X by simply saying “Ok, Google.” There’s also a physical button on the side of the watch’s body that’s used to wake it up, or you can tap the face.

Moto 360 is expected to release “later this summer” for a price that hasn’t been announced yet.Recently,Motorola revealed the winning design of its watch face contest – which might be used as one of the faces for the commercial version of the Moto 360.

Asus smartwatch coming in September

The ever growing smartwatch market is about to get a little more crowded this year. After Google unveiled its first set of Android Wear smartwatches at this year’s annual developers conference this week, a new report has come claiming that Asus will be launching its own Android Wear smartwatch in September.

 Techcrunch, citing sources familiar with Asus’ plans, the smartwatch is likely to come with an AMOLED display and could be priced between $99(approx. 6000 ) and $149(approx. 9000 ) – $50 less than LG’s G Watch. This could very well be the most affordable Android Wear powered smartwatch arriving this year.

 “Asus had previously discussed including gesture control on its smartwatch to make up for a smaller screen more suitable to wristborne computing, but this was prior to Google’s unveiling of Android Wear so it’s unclear if it’s the same project as the one discussed above,” said the report.

Asus, earlier this year, was said to be working on a smartwatch that would feature a customisable gesture interface and voice-commands. However, this was before Google revealed its Android Wear plans. As of now, there is no word on specifications of the unnamed Asus’ Android Wear smartwatch.

The major tipster @evleaks has provided additional information about the smartwatch’s form factor, mentioning the wearable (codenamed Robin) is looking to be the thinnest in its category.It appears the ASUS Robin could be aspecting at a September release date, pitting it against the upcoming Motorola 360, as well as the soon to be released LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live. HTC — where are you?

Apple unwraps new entry-level 21.5 inch iMac

Cupertino tech giant has unwrapped the new entry-level iMac for $1099, to make the world’s leading all-in-one computing solution more affordable for the masses. When Apple shut down its online store briefly to refresh the iMac line, most people were caught off guard when no Retina iMacs appeared — instead, there came a update of a cheaper new iMac.

The new iMac will be a 21.5-inch variant with an Intel Core i5 processor clocked at 1.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support for up to 2.7 GHz, 8GB of onboard RAM and a 500GB hard drive. On the graphics front, the iMac will be powered by an Intel HD 5000 graphics chip and will feature Wi-Fi 802.11ac connectivity. The device will also sport 4 USB 3.0 and two Thunderbolt ports, making peripheral connectivity carefree for most part.

From a software outlook, the new iMac will be powered by OS X Mavericks, with the possibility of a free upgrade to OS X Yosemite once it becomes available later this autumn.The update revealed during WWDC 2014 will be capable of making phone calls and send text messages from your iMac for the first time. The new features will allow users to synchronise all files automatically across multiple Apple devices, and even Windows PCs and tablets.

New iMac Review (2014): Specs

  • 21.5-inch LED display at 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution

  • 1.4 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 CPU

  • Intel HD Graphics 5000

  • 8 GB RAM

  • 500 GB hard drive

  • FaceTime HD camera

  • Stereo speakers, dual microphones

  • 4x USB 3.0 ports, 2x Thunderbolt ports

  • MiniDisplay port

  • Gigabit ethernet

  • 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0

  • 12.5 pounds

  • Includes Apple Wireless Keyboard and Apple Magic Mouse

  • Runs OSX

  • MSRP: $1099


Apple never does anything without reason, and it’s a good gamble the company took not to release a cheap new iMac with a major cut in specs just to annoy critics. It’s possible that this new 21.5-inch iMac was rushed out in response to the growing popularity of cheap PCs by Hewlett-Packard  and Samsung Google’s  Chromeboxes in the education market.

The new iMac is available right away for $1099 through the Apple online store, Apple Retail Stores and some authorized resellers. It retains the overall appeal(including the cool design), but in a slower computing. For homework, general productivity and casual home use, you’ll likely never observe the difference. More demanding customers should resist the savings and opt for a more powerful version, though.

Moto X+1 spotted in a video leak

Moto X+1 is possibly the next device to be arriving from the Motorola camp and over the past few times, the device has made several appearances through leaks. A video showing the handset has recently leaked which shows the Moto X+1 to be dressed in a plastic cover.

Although at the moment, there is nothing new about the device but the currently available boot animation shown at the start of the video below makes it look bit different from other Moto devices seen till date. This is the only evidence at the moment to predict the device to be a Moto X+1.

Taking a look at the video, it shows some standard features like notifications and Active Display which looks quite similar to the one in Moto X. The Moto X+1 is considered to be a successor to last year’s Motorola flagship and so it believed to pack a larger display with 1080p screen resolution, 2GB of RAM and three storage options like that seen in the Moto X. The camera for the device and its chipset are believed to remain the same.

Samsung in buyout talks with Nuance Communications

According to reports coming out of the Wall Street Journal, speech recognition service Nuance Communications has undergone acquisition talks with Samsung and being exploring the possibility of a sale.

Anticipating the rumored potential deal, Nuance’s market capital jumped from a valuation of $5.5 billion to almost $6 billion few days back. Nuance released its first commercial speech application back in 1996 and has gone on to be the company behind Dragon Naturally Speaking, S Voice, and even Siri.

Voice recognition and voice enabled features in devices is becoming more noticeable and a huge focal point for many of the OEMs and companies involved with electronics and mobile device manufacturing. Google has its own technology built behind Google Now and Google voice search.

Apple’s virtual assistant Siri is powered by Nuance in the back-end.Samsung has associated with Nuance late in 2013 for the voice recognition functionalities in S Voice on its Galaxy Gear smart watch and Galaxy Note 3 smartphone.

Although many companies use Nuance Communications speech recognition software in their products, Samsung is by far the largest and uses it the most. You can find the voice software in many of Samsung’s different mobile devices, TV’s and even upcoming wearables. Samsung could be looking for a way to strengthen and further their own speech recognition by purchasing Nuance.

In addition to Samsung, Nuance has also reportedly held talks with Panasonic, Nintendo, and Daimler AG. There’s no word on Apple bidding for the Nuance too, but it’s safe to assume that there would be at least some concern circulating in Apple’s camp if Samsung were to own the company that also provides them with essential technology.

Apple to begin 2.5-inch iWatch production in July

Numerous reports have revealed the beginning of mass production of 2.5 inch iWatch in July,ahead of an October commercial launch.

The smartwatch might measure at 2.5 inches diagonally with a slightly rectangular face, reports Reuters, citing sources acquainted with the product. The smartwatch is expected to swell slightly from the band to create an arch shape, and will include a touch interface and wireless charging.

The smartwearables are currently gaining traction as a lifestyle and well-being gadget due to its ability to collect data about the user’s heart rate and other health-related metrics, in addition to facilitating tasks like checking e-mail and making phone calls. iWatch is also expected to interface closely with the iPhone and iOS 8, providing users with at-a-glance notifications and information. If true, the announcement of an iWatch would mark Apple’s first newly-created product since the introduction of the iPad in 2010.

Taiwan’s Quanta Computer is currently producing a trial run of the smartwatch and mass LG Display is got to be the exclusive supplier of the screen, which is in line with previous rumors. Along with providing an array of health-related information via sensors, Apple’s iWatch is also expected to interface closely with the iPhone and iOS 8, providing users with at-a-glance notifications and information.


If any company can figure out the smartwatch paradox, it’s Apple. But the company will need to move quickly–and keep an eye trained on the competition from Samsung, Sony, and LG. At Google I/O conference, Google just gave demo of  LG’s G Watch, which runs the Android Wear OS. It essentially puts the highly acclaimed Google Now digital assistant on the user’s wrist. Chief Executive Tim Cook has promised repeatedly that he would launch “exciting” new products this year, but patience has started decline.

The keys to any iWatch success will be simple elegance and performance. How easy will it be to use apps on the extremely limited screen of a 2.5-inch display? How will Apple overcome ongoing wearable monsters like Bluetooth dropouts and short battery life?

We are hoping that Apple’s entry into the field of smart wearables will be a game-changer that transforms the industry like the company’s iPhone did in 2007.

Google Cardboard offers Weird respond To Virtual Reality

At the end of Google’s I/O keynote, the company casually said it would be handing out pieces of cardboard to attendees, asking that folks use the #cardboard hashtag to document their experiences.It wasn’t a late April Fools joke from Google, especially after spending more than two hours not doing much onstage.

Instead of spending $2 billion for its own virtual reality technology, Google is taking an absolutely “simple, fun and inexpensive” approach for people to experience VR. “That’s the goal of the Google Cardboard project.” This is probably the most unusual product we’ve ever seen from Google—and there have been some damn weird ones. Maybe that is why Google neglected to mention Glass onstage at I/O keynote?

Google Cardboard is a transformation into an awesome virtual reality headset. Along with the headset, Google launched an Cardboard Android app with a variety of demo applications.It includes Google Earth flyover, a VR-enabled Street View demo,360-degree video viewer where users can drive through Paris and Tour Guide, , where users take a virtual tour of Versailles. But the main idea is for developers to write their own VR apps using the accompanying software VR Toolkit, which was also released in the I/O conference.

Google Cardboard app is a 188MB file that works on any phone running Android 4.1 or later. The app and headset are fully compatible with Google Nexus 4 and 5, Motorola’s Moto X, Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5 and the Galaxy Nexus.With the app installed, you can place the phone inside Cardboard, close it up using the attached Velcro tabs, and an NFC tag inside the box automatically launches the app.

Google has posted instructions for building cardboard of your own.”We’re keeping the hardware and software open to encourage community participation and compatibility with VR content available elsewhere,” Google’s VR Toolkit developer page explains

Q: Can we use a pizza box for the cardboard?

A: Yes. Make sure you order an extra large.

You can also use a diaper box, a package from Amazon, a large-sized cereal box and maybe even an iMac box. Just check your apartment complex’s dumpster for the best and weirdest selection.

Motorola has now announced the winner of the Moto 360, which can be seen in the photo above, it was designed by David Pascual, and his design comes with some cool features on the watch face.The design is shown at the Google I/O developer conference held recently.The device coming with Android Wear  is expected to compete with the LG G Watch and the new Samsung Gear Live.

Motorola received over 1300 designs for the contest Moto 360 Design Face-Off, and last month the top 10 designs were shared on Motorola’s Google+ page for getting public opinion. David Pascual’s design is the winner of the contest determined by the most +1’s.

The winning face is definitely quite attractive and manages to expertly blend the requisite elements of a smartwatch. White numerals sit on a black background with blue accents, but also present are wireless, power, and Bluetooth indicators, along with a space for notifications.

Motorola says Pascual’s design has a chance of appearing on the Moto 360, but that will probably depend on whether or not developers can truly restructure it within the confines of Android Wear.If it does come pre-installed, it might appear a bit different. Still, it is pretty nice.

Google brings alternative to Microsoft Powerpoint at Google I/O

During Google I/O opening keynote, there was no shortage of major and minor announcements At last introduction of a native mobile Google Slides application was done. It is a slideshow editor and auxiliary to Microsoft’s PowerPoint. This is one of the the third application part of the Google Docs suite which Google is releasing in native form on tablets and smartphones.Earlier, Docs and Sheets were released on Android and iOS, allowing customers to edit documents and spreadsheets on their mobile devices.

Speaking about Docs, Google enabled native document, spreadsheet, and slideshow editing on mobile devices through integrating up with QuickOffice.With Android L and the latest version of Chrome, Google fully integrated QuickOffice’s great functionality into its apps. Now, users will be able to edit and create documents when they are offline. Users will also be able to edit native Microsoft Office Word Docs in the Google Docs app.

Previously, Gmail would convert the Word doc into a Google Docs file. So now, when you receive an email from a colleague or friend with a Word document attached, you can open the Word file in the Google Docs app in its original format. All changes you make will be saved on the Word file and you can email the edited document back to its sender in its original format.

Is the Sony Xperia Z3 getting certified?

Is Sony readying to release the next smartphone in its flagship Z series? It would seem so. There is already a growing interest about when Sony is planning to launch the Xperia Z3 and now it seems that the Z3 is going through the certification process.

Around a month ago, we had some Xperia Z3 leaks regarding metal frame and specs. It was speculated that the Xperia Z3 might be launched by Sony sometime in August this year. Sony’s Xperia Z2 was released in March 2014. Going by the fact that Sony releases a new model of Xperia Z smartphone every 6 months, the speculations might be true and we might get to see the new Xperia Z3 in August/September 2014, possibly at the IFA 2014 in Berlin.

Around a fortnight ago, some Sony smartphone models have appeared in TÜV Rheinland certification. TÜV Rheinland is a certification company that certifies products, systems, functional safety etc. The models that were certified are: PM-0800-BV (D6603), PM-0804-BV (D6643), PM-0801-BV (D6616), PM-0806-BV (D6653), PM-0802-BV, PM-0803-BV and PM-0807-BV. Blog of Mobile, a Japanese Website, has spotted the above Sony model numbers on TÜV Rheinland. The site believes that these are the model numbers of the next Sony flagship Xperia Z3.

Xperia Z3-certification

Of these, news for two models D6603 and D6653 has been leaked earlier. Model number D 6603 had appeared in a benchmark test and had features similar to Xperia Z2. Model D6653 had been spotted on the Indonesian Postel not long ago.

Xperia Z2 has model numbers beginning with D65 and hence it is quite possible that the models beginning with D66 that were certified on TÜV Rheinland, are of the next Sony flagship, the Xperia Z3. Of course, this is just a speculation. In actual fact we can only say that some models of Sony’s new upcoming high-end smartphone have been certified on June 13, 2014. As to which new Sony smartphone, only time will tell.

Stay tuned for more….

Android L: "Material Design", Project Volta, Improved Battery Life, and More

This year’s Google I/O conference closed yesterday and as always, had shown us myriads of new products, innovations and announcements from the search giant as well as its partners.

One of the biggest announcements that caught many people’s attentions was that of the new Android operating system called the Android L, which was announced on the first day at the conference by Google’s Sundar Pichai.

All-encompassing updates has been made to the operating system with bunches of new features added and lots of changes made. Out of which, The Android L introduced a simplified ‘Material Design’ interface, which is flatter and more colorful.

According to an in-depth review by PhoneArea, “Put in most simple terms — no design element has been spared, and even the software navigation keys have gone through a redesign (now a triangle, circle, and square). What’s more, the new look, apart from being seamless across all Google platforms, has also been simplified down to the basics, and is now flatter, more colorful, and quite a bit more likable.”

Aside from that, the OS also introduced improved search functionality, improved battery life or ‘Project Volta’ and animated actions.

“That last bit is, in a big way, a feeling influenced by the the inclusion of rich animation feedback to actions, which, in plain speak, means that essential operations, like clicking a button, switching a tab, flipping through recents, etc, will all be animated. Thankfully, all of this has been done tastefully from what we’ve seen so far, and is not overwhelming or overly flashy.” wrote PhoneArea.

Preview is available for developers with Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 smart phones.

Razer media control to be based on Android TV

Just day before yesterday, Google unveiled its much awaited Android TV that comes with video and music streaming along with multi-player gaming. Razer is one of the partners of Google who would be providing Android TV Set-top boxes. And now, Razer has officially went out announcing that it is launching Android TV based media console this fall and would be primarily aimed on gaming. However, any compatible hardware for Android TV is expected to not arrive before September but Razer was much excited to make the announcement. The media console from Razer would also be expected to able to view media content with the courtesy of Google Play.

At the time of announcing Android TV, Sharp and Sony were announced as the first OEMs to bring into market dedicated television featuring Android TV. But news are that that Razer is planning to bring in a similar kind of interface as seen in the recently launched Amazon Fire TV.

However at the moment, there is no official word regarding the pricing or hardware of the device but we expect things to get more clear as we approach closer to the launch date. However, Razer has posted an official picture of the media console that hosts a neon lighting at the bottom as seen in the above image.

Android Wear preview: Is this the answer to Apple"s Healthkit?

Google gave a developer’s tour of Android Wear at I/O, its smartwatch platform. It won’t substitute your smartphone, but it is Google Now for the wrist, with a heavy emphasis on managing an Android devices and serving convenient notifications.

At Google’s annual I/O developer’s conference in San Francisco, Director of Android Engineering David Singleton gave first long look of Android Wear, which was first announced in the past spring.

The importance of the preview was on how developers should make apps for Google’s new wearable accessory platform. Android Wear is visualized as a compliment to an Android phone, and developers can use the same tools that they use for Android phones/tablets. “We want a seamless experience on these screens,” SVP Sundar Pichai said. “We’re making everything contextually aware and voice enabled.”


As expected, Android Wear is a lot similar to Google Now on the wrist. Using the hot term “OK Google” to trigger an action, you can talk to your smartwatch and set reminders for later. Like Google Now, the smartwatch can display QR codes, which can be utilized as a boarding pass. And obviously, Android Wear has a deep emphasis on context-aware notifications.


Singleton demonstrated a few scenarios while showing off Android Wear on the LG G Watch. It has a always-on display. When waking up, a Android Wear user could swipe through cards on the smartwatch that shows the weather, travel time to work, and a package notification; mainly, everything the user needs to know to start her day. Android Wear is heavily dependent on location based alerts, which are already available on Android phones, but also make a lot of logic on the wrist.


On receiving the call, user can swipe up on Android Wear to send a SMS response, or accept or reject the call. If you don’t want any notifications, there’s a Do Not Disturb mode triggered by swiping down from the top of the watch screen. The Android Wear devices should also be able to play and pause music, control an Android TV, and basically act like a suitable remote control for an Android device.

Later, we got a glance at the Moto 360, which is an Android Wear device with a circular screen. One of the early apps for it is Eat24, which allows users to order a pizza — or other takeout — from their smartwatch.


Google also announced Google Fit, fitness tracking service meant to compete with Apple’s Healthkit.Some of the initial partners supporting Google Fit include Adidas, Basis, Nike, RunKeeper, and Withings. Google will release an SDK in the coming weeks so developers can integrate Google Fit into their Android apps.

One of the biggest shocker surrounding Android Wear is that it won’t have its own app store. Instead, traditional Android apps could add wearable functions to their already existing apps on Google Play. When installing an Android app on the phone, Google Play will automatically install and update the associated smartwatch app.

The LG G Watch and Samsung’s Android Wear device — now labeled Samsung Gear Live are available on Google Play.They are priced at 14,999₹ and 15,900₹ respectively. The Moto 360 will be available “later this summer.”

Overall, Android Wear is largely what we thought it was: an system heavily dependent on contextual information for getting Google Now onto the wrist, heavily dependent on contextual information. “People check their Android phones an average of 125 times every day,” Singleton said. Android Wear is looking to cut that number down.

However, notifications are going to introduce to the Chromebooks users for different circumstances. Including other notifications, you will have notification for battery low or receive a test or on someone’s call. What will be happen if you have seen messages on hangouts are not clear to the users and Pichai? But, android apps and notifications Chromebooks are in the way of developing.

Android Apps and Notifications in Chromebooks Soon

Samsung Gear Live, Samsung"s First Android Wear Based Smartwatch Announced

Earlier this week, there were rumors that Samsung could unwrap or announce its first smartwatch based on the Android Wear operating system at the Google I/O conference, which they did.

The smartwatch was announced Wednesday and was available to pre-order at Google Play Store the same day and it run Google’s Android Wear operating system. Android Wear is an operating system by Google crafted specifically for smartwatches and other wearbles and was first unveiled in March this year.

Samsung is one of the first gadget manufactures to introduce a smartwatch based on the operating system. Even though there had been no official statements from Samsung about the release or announcement of the smartwatch or it’s specs before the opening of the conference, it was expected to have very much similar features with that of the previous Samsung wearables.

Now that the specs has been released, we know what features and functionalists are that come with the gadget.

Some of the features that come with the smartwatch include Google Voice, Hangouts and other Google services other than Google Now, which is the main feature of this phone. In addition to that, the wearable also comes by default with other features including Heart Rate Monitor, SMS and Email notification feature, and others.

To review the its performances, the gadget has 1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM and 4GB internal memory storage. It has a display size of 1.63″ and weighs 59 grams.

Samsung’s first version of smartwatch was the Galaxy Gear and run Android operating system. But it consumed too much battery. Therefore, Samsung switched from Android to it’s own operating system called the Tizen on it’s subsequent releases of smartwatches i.e. the Gear 2 Neo and the Gear Fit.

A few weeks before the opening of the conference, LG and Motorolla were also companies that were expected to reveal their first smartwatches based on the Android Wear operating system at the conference, which they did. G Watch and Moto 360 were the new Android Wear based smartwatches by LG and Motorolla respectively.

Google I/O is a two days’ developer conference in San Fransisco. Starting from the year 2008, it has been held annually and this year’s conference was held from June 25th to June 26th.

Google Fit: Android"s New Health and Fitness Tracking Service

GOOGLE FIT revealed during the Google I/O press conference is Android’s answer to Apple’s Healthkit platform.It will be a platform through which Android and Google customers can track and manage their healthcare and fitness data across multiple applications and devices including the newly-announced Samsung Gear Live smartwatch.

Some of the initial partners supporting Google Fit include Adidas, Basis, Nike, RunKeeper, Noom, Runtastic, and Withings, meaning the software will work with the likes of the Fuelband. The problem with all this smart fitness stuff is that the data always resides in individual silos. RunKeeper has your running data, Nike Fuel has another motion data, your weightlifting statistics are stuck in Fitocracy, your weight is tracked by Withings.Google will try to sync all together adequately with Google Fit.

Google will release an SDK in the coming weeks so developers can integrate Google Fit into their Android apps. As an example, Google explained a fitness app from Noom (a company that makes a number of individual fitness apps for weight loss, step counting, and carido training). It presented an integrated view of meals logged, steps taken, and even weight data from a Withings scale. The point is this: With your explicit permission, your fitness apps can share data with each other, giving you a more detailed view of your health and activity.

However, Google has been keen to point out that the user will be given full control over what apps can see fitness data, and will be able to delete data at any time.There’s no word on official availability of Google Fit,but it is likely to debut alongside Android L in the autumn.
