• Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on (video)

    The Galaxy Nexus (formerly referred to as the Nexus Prime) carries on the Nexus torch in spectacular fashion, and we've just spent a few quality moments with one here at the launch event. Design-wise, it's clear that the Nexus S DNA is here, though the rear reminds us most of the Galaxy S II. Those who abhor physical buttons will also be delighted, and while we'd gotten used to the whole Power + Home for a screenshot on the GSII, Power + Volume Down works just fine on this fellow.......

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich now official, tons of enhancements

    PSHax member - Google has taken the stage in Hong Kong to make the next version of Android OS, nicknamed Ice Cream Sandwich, a thing of reality. Better known as Android 4.0, the update offers a massive redesign to the user interface and adds a plethora of new features. Some of the highlights include an NFC-enabled feature called Android Beam, offline search in Gmail, new lock screen features and a fancy unlocking method called "Face Unlock," which uses facial recognition to ensure strangers can't use your phone without permission. Ice Cream Sandwich also includes enhancements in.....

  • Motorola RAZR to get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich in early 2012

    Mutricy mentioned that while the company's new flagship device was designed for Gingerbread, plans have been set to introduce the latest version of Android in the start of 2012, with a more precise date naturally on its way. Given past experience, however, it's probable that the unbranded version of the device will get the refresh ahead of the Droid RAZR on Verizon, so US users may need to exercise a wee bit of patience here. Regardless, it's time for the competition to step up......

  • HTC Rezound render resoundingly revealed- wait next November 10th

    Hark! The first renders of the HTC Rezound have appeared online, thanks to some of the device's cases going up for pre-order. You can see that, like the Sensation XE, the phone has red-glowing soft keys -- a bit of a departure from HTC's traditionally conservative design language. If you recall, the phone formerly called Vigor is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Beats Audio and an 8MP rear camera.....

Microsoft revealed details of Windows 8 (Video)

Posted by Mohd Khairun Nasir Saadi On - - 0 comments

As we know already, Windows 8 will be ARM-based as opposed to the traditional x64 architecture. Now we have more details about specifically how Windows 8 will look, feel, and behave:

- For those familiar with Windows Phone 7, Windows 8 will feel familiar. Windows 8 highly incorporates the "tiles" design of Windows Phone 7.
- Windows 8 will support two types of apps/programs. The first type of programs supported on Windows 8 are the traditional PC programs, such as the ones that run on Windows 7. In other words, non-touch based programs. The second type of programs supported on Windows 8 are mobile-like programs (i.e. touch based and open full screen) written in HTML5 and Javascript. Internet Explorer 10, which will be available in Windows 8, has already been designed to be a mobile-like program.
- There will be support for hardware keyboards and mice (usable in both types of programs mentioned above), but there will be plenty of virtual keyboards available to use - including different keyboards depending on the orientation of your device - and support for touch gestures for navigation.
- There will be an app store for Windows 8.
- Windows 8 will run on laptops, desktops, and tablets.
- Windows 8 will "use less resources" than Windows 7. There is still a bit of confusion about if Windows 8 will only work on ARM CPUs or if it will also work on traditional CPUs. No one really knows.
