Samsung Galaxy Note II Out In Stores Tomorrow

clock November 28, 2012 20:55 by author Jeremy

If you live by the phrase "bigger is better" then I'm sure you've been eyeing the Samsung Galaxy Note II. This smartphone/tablet mashup has been garnering attention specifically due to its size - a hefty 5.5-inches of screen real-estate. But now, the long-awaited phone is finally coming out to Verizon stores starting tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 29. Of course, if you had pre-ordered it, it might already be on it's way to your house! Or, alternatively, it might arrive late. Sad day indeed.

If you're new to the Galaxy Note II universe, then let's go over a few quick tidbits. Most notable for it's screen size, this smartphone is also unique for having a stylus pen. Aside from that, we're sitting on a quad-core 1.6GHz processor (most flagship phones right now are running in the 1.2 to 1.5GHz range) and 2GB of ram, so I don't think we'll be complaining from a lack of power. In the Storage department, we're provided up to 64GB of memory and a MicroSD slot - you know, in case you wanted to put entire folders of movies and music on this (and watching it on this screen wouldn't be too bad either!). There's also your usual 8MP camera on the back and a 1.9MP camera on the front. And what's powering this hefty monster? A 3,100mAh Li-Ion battery, of course - larger than most smartphone batteries.

Overall, is this phone considered worthy of your time? You tell us, but I sure think it is.

Apple’s Lightning Connector

clock November 5, 2012 22:53 by author Ty

Lightning is a new power connector designed created by Apple for its 2012 products such as the iPhone 5, the IPod Touch 5th generation, the IPod nano 7th generation, the iPad 4th generation and the iPad mini.

 

Lightning is an all-digital 8-pin port connector, Apple’s replacement for its 30-pin port connector. Unlike the 30-pin connector, the new 8-pin connector is reversible and can be inserted into the device with either side facing up. Furthermore, the 8-pin connector’s key benefit is its size and it is approximately 80 percent smaller than the 30-pin connector. To comply with the 30-pin connector devices, Apple sells Lightning-to-30-pin-adapters for $29.

 

According to the latest news from Apple Insider, Belkin has announced two new accessories designed for Apple’s lighting connector. They will be the first official third-party lighting accessories to hit the market. Belkin’s lightning accessories are now available for pre-order on the company’s website and in-store purchases will be available in mid-November. It is said that Belkin’s car charger for lightning with a 4-foot lightning cable and over-voltage protection will be sold at $29.99. For more information, visit the company’s website at http://www.belkin.com/us/F8J075/p/P-F8J075.
