Google launched their Nexus 6 finally on October 16, 2014.The much anticipated and hyped mobile device did not surprise rumors and enthusiasts as its fairly what was visualized on rumor renders last couple of weeks.
But that said, the new Nexus 6 fairly looks like a chunkier version of the Moto X. Nevertheless it packs flagship hardware specifications and pure Android 5 Lollipop which will prove to set standards for other mobile devices.
It seemed latest trends swept away clamshell form factor of mobile phones, with the rise of capacitive touchscreens and Gorilla Glass. The tides seems to turn again with the unveiling of the Motorola Gleam+ .
Motorola took a whole year to update their Motorola GLEAM, reviled back in February 2011 at MWC. Looks like Motorola have learned from previous GLEAM, and so included 50 MB internal storage and a larger 2.8″ TFT display. These numbers are irrelevant now a days where 4″ are cool. MicroSD storage is avaible upto 16GB and does come with the handy dandy large Illuminated binary matrix thingy screen that adds to the aesthetic and ease of use as it offers , from smooth curves of the mainframe and Chiclets style keypad which is well spaced and placed for easy operation.
Fresh new design and 45MB of 50MB;everything else looks similar to the ancestor Gleam.
With a basic 2 megapixel camera and only 750mAh battery the Moto Gleam+ doesn’t “shine bright” when you think of practical daily usage. With estimated 4.5hr of talk-time GSM , it would probably result to be an Impractical phone unless the battery has something else rather than lithium ions.
Still early to call , but the Gleam+ does look stylish and appealing on the outside, but disappoints await on the inside with poor spec sheet scores, even for low budget phones.
One of the first things I’m sure you will notice is the beautifully redesigned Home Screen. We made the icons bigger and rearranged them in grid view so you can access the most important functions with a single touch. Even more exciting is that we added three new icons to the list: Recent Chats, N-World and Groupchat .
Here is the complete overview of Nimbuzz 3.3 for Nokia Symbian phones:
Redesigned Home Screen for fast access to your favorite features
Three new icons added: Recent Chats, N-World and Groupchat
Block contacts that annoy you
New “Notifiable” icon – the green half moon
Change your password from the inside the app
30% faster login
The icon with a half green moon stands for Notifiable and it will appear only next to your Nimbuzz contacts that closed the Nimbuzz app but can still receive push (on the iPhone and Android) or Ping notifications (on the Java and Symbian phones).
So when you see this icon remember that we will push your messages to your friend but it might take a while for them to see it since their app is closed.
HumanForm was created in a joint effort between Nokia Design and Nokia Research Center to translate the most promising new nanotechnologies into meaningful user experience, prototype those for decision making; and transfer and set aspiration for future portfolio.
Project is a key to bring significant user experience benefits to the market thereby creating mindshare and value share through nanotechnology enabled experiences.
HumanForm is a visionary solution for a dynamically flexible device beyond touch screen and voice communication where technology is invisible and intuition takes over. Natural interactions are enabled with kinetic user interface.
HumanForm concept and a follow-up Nokia Kinetic Device prototype were launched in Nokia World 2011.
