CES 2013 - Samsung Shows Off Its Flexible OLED Display


Filip Reznicek | 11:54 PM | , , , ,

We've heard quite a bit about Samsung's prototype flexible OLED display over the past couple years, and it looks like the company is starting to mature the tech, as it showed off the most practical phone design we've seen yet.
Just to get this out of the way up front – this phone is not flexible. It's just using the flexible display inside of a rigid case, so it's no different than current phones in that respect. When it comes to specs, Samsung wouldn't give up details, only telling The Verge that it's "about 5-inches across" with a resolution of "about" 720p. Awesome.

As far as practical application, though, it's clear that not even Samsung is sure what to do with this phone's "display lip." For now, it can output stocks, emails, and similar notifications. I have to admit, though – I don't personally see the point. Why do I need notifications scrolling across the side of my phone again? Sounds like a more modern version of the Continuum to me.

Of course, the idea is neat, and there's no denying that. It'll be interesting to see where Samsung ultimately goes with this – but that probably won't happen any time soon.

CES 2013 - An Oven That Runs Android


Filip Reznicek | 6:44 PM | , ,

I could probably count on one hand the amount of things at CES that are 1, new, and 2, run Android, so we are left with stuff like this.

wm_20130108_192447

This is an oven, an oven with an embedded 7-inch touch screen that runs Android. It's called the Dacor Discovery IQ Wall Oven. Here are some specs.
  • Samsung S5PV210 1GHz CPU
  • PowerVR SGX 540 GPU
  • 512 MB DDR2 RAM
  • 16 GB Storge
  • "Hard Drive Expansion: 32GB Max"
  • WiFi
The oven runs Android 4.0.3 (I can't believe I'm typing this) in tablet mode. Dacor has an app that will let you do oven things like adjust the temperature, set a timer, and show the time. You can even remotely do oven things from another Android device.

wm_20130108_192631wm_20130108_192359wm_20130108_192418

Everything works, although using the navigation buttons is a little strange because the tablet isn't flush with the front of the oven. There's a lip that makes hitting anything on the edge of the screen a bit of a challenge. It runs like a budget Android tablet, you will see some stuttering while swiping from screen to screen. On the plus side, it comes pre-loaded with the Play Store, so you can easily play Angry Birds while cooking one.
We made the mistake of asking the nearby oven salesman for a demo of the oven, and he ended up talking about BTUs and things like that. So here's a very-much oven-centric overview of this oven. You've been warned.

CES 2013 - Hands-On With The Ginormous Huawei Ascend Mate


Filip Reznicek | 6:40 PM | , , ,

Do you think phones should be even bigger? Good news: so does Huawei. You've probably already heard about the Mate, but we got a little hands-on time before the show floor opened last night at CES Digital Experience, and, well, it's big. Really big. And yes, we put it next to a Note II to show you just how mind-bogglingly large it is.

wm_IMG_1549

As far as initial impressions, the device runs Android 4.1 with Huawei's light UI overlay quite smoothly. This is the second phone to date to use Huawei's in-house quad-core KVM processor, which is paired (interestingly) with an Intel modem (GSM 3G only). The Mate's 6.1" IPS display is 720p, so pixel density is definitely a little on the thin side for something quite so large. That said, the display's colors and viewing angles were very good, and the whole phone felt pretty well-put-together.

wm_IMG_1553

The real kicker is that this 6.1" beast manages to fit a 4050mAh (!) battery behind the panel, and early estimates from Huawei say this should be good for 48 hours of "normal" smartphone usage. Impressive.
Is this the phablet to hold out for? In all honesty, I'm not sure we'll ever see the Mate here in the US. At least not on any carriers (though with enough interest, that could change). Around the rest of the world, though - particularly China and Southeast Asia - Huawei may be able to pitch the size factor along with a value proposition to would-be Note II buyers.
We know the Mate is headed to China in February, with a wider release to follow at some point.

Strike Fighters Israel v1.16


Filip Reznicek | 10:57 AM | , , , , , ,


Description: Fly the P-51 Mustang, F-4 Kurnass, F-15 Baz, F-16 Netz, F-104 Starfighter, Spitfire, Vampire, Meteor, Hunter, Mystere, Super Mystere, Mirage, Nesher, Kfir, MiG-15 'Fagot', MiG-17 'Fresco', MiG-19 'Farmer', MiG-21 'Fishbed' and MiG-23 'Flogger'! Combat flight simulation game featuring dozens of legendary fighters from the golden age of aviation spanning 35 years from 1948 to 1982!
The Israel campaign starts out in the year 1948 when the state of Israel is formed. After the British withdrawal from Palestine, the UN passes the Resolution 181 to setup two separate states in Palestine. Israel accepts and becomes a new state. Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq, and Lebanon however reject the plan insisting on only one Palestine state, and invade the newly formed state of Israel. Engage in dogfights using only available fighters in the region, the classic piston-engine fighters from World War 2! Then switch to high-speed dogfights with the early guns-only jet fighters as new fighters arrive from UK, Soviet, and France. Advance through the years as the early rear-aspect only heat-seeking missiles and radar-guided missiles are introduced.
The campaign advances one year when you accumulate 5 kills flying any aircraft available on/or before that year. Keys to unlock the planes are earned when you get promoted to a new level; the level promotion is based on the total accumulated score and not limited to the year. You also get additional keys on the following 4 historical years: 1956, 1967, 1973, and 1982.
Later year aircraft can be bought as in-app purchase and unlocked early and played out of sequence. You just need to go to the Options screen and set it to show later year aircraft to see them.
The game uses accelerometer (tilt sensor) for controlling the aircraft. The sensor is automatically centered every time you play, but there is also a button at the top center of the screen to "re-center" it manually to the current orientation anytime during game play.
The radar screen at the top right corner of the screen shows top-down position of the enemy fighters, and the red arrows on the screen show which direction to turn. The arrow changes into a red box when the target is in front. Once the target is in gun range, a red aim dot appears indicating where to lead and shoot to hit the target. Remember that enemy fighters are also turning and attempting to get behind your six!
Targeting is automatic, missiles automatically lock-on to the target with best chance of hitting, which is generally the one closest to the center of the screen. Missile chances are affected by the range, both max range and min range, as well as the target aspect (especially for the early heat seekers which are rear aspect only!)
The app is absolutely free to download and play! It is ad supported, but any single $0.99 in-app purchase will permanently remove the ads.
And please feel free to leave us feedback on here or on our webpage and Facebook page.
Thanks, and good hunting!
