Nokia 808 PureView -

Nokia has changed the history by announcing its new mobileNokia PureView 808 Smartphone” packing a jaw-dropping 41MP camera. This has put Nokia ahead in the race as there is hardly any camera phone in the market that can capture better quality images than Pureview.
The 808's camera, which includes a Carl Zeiss optics lens with XENON flash, is also capable of full HD 1080p video recording and also comes equipped with pixel oversampling technology for creating the highest quality images that no other smartphone has yet accomplished.

What makes it different !

Nokia 808 PureView: Camera

  • The big draw here is the 41MP camera. This sort of megapixel count hasn't been seen on a phone before, and is usually limited to medium format pro cameras. 
  • The Carl Zeiss lens is teamed with Nokia's pixel over-sampling technology, which has been designed to produce sharp pictures, even in low light conditions, along with the ability to save the images in compact file sizes for easy sharing.

Nokia 808 PureView: Design

  • The Nokia 808 PureView sports a rubberised finish. 
  • The rubber finish adds a nice bit of grip, and while the phones fits reasonably comfortably in the hand,
  • But the device does feel slightly heavy to hold.

Nokia 808 PureView: Features

  • The Nokia 808 PureView also offers Dolby headphone technology, along with Nokia Rich Recording Mic tech for capturing sound with as little interference as possible.
  • Nokia 808 PureView also features exceptional video recording capabilities, with high quality image and sound. 
  • Shoot video in 1080p Full HD, with up to 4x lossless zoom for smooth, consistent image capture with pin-sharp detail. 
  • Recorded sound is crystal clear, and uses a new unique digital microphone with specialized algorithms to allow recording of hi-fi audio at levels of 140db – beyond the capabilities of human hearing.

Nokia 808 PureView: Screen

  • The Nokia 808 PureView sports a 4-inch screen.
  • The phone is being sold on its impressive camera,having said that, images are clear and hues are bright and punchy so we can't complain too much. It actually is !
  • Protected with a Corning Gorilla Glass with a Nokia ClearBlack display of 360 X 640 pixels.

Nokia 808 PureView: Performance

  • The single-core 1.3GHz processor is decidedly mid-range, 
  • But the UI appeared to operate relatively swiftly, 
  • Although the camera takes a couple of seconds to boot up - not a great start for a handset that's being sold on the basis of a strong camera performance.

Nokia 808 PureView: Verdict

  • Packing a preposterously high megapixel count of 41 on its camera, the Nokia 808 PureView is certainly an interesting phone to lead the Symbian range.
  • The camera also beats many basic dedicated digi-cams with its powerful image processing chip.
  • The impressive camera tech means that the phone isn't the slimmest around, with a chassis that looks more like a rugged, waterproof phone.
  • Buying  Nokia 808 PureView only for its camera and above all with a Symbian OS installed in it at a high price might feel a little uneasy with so many fantastic android phones available in the market.

Google unveils "Solve for X"

Google Solve for X -
Google Solve for X  -

Google unveiled a new project dedicated to tackling some of the world's biggest problems 
"Solve for X is a place where the curious can go to hear and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems,"
-reads the Solve for X website.

Google Solve for X -
Diagrammatic Representation 

Brief Description 

Solve for X is a think tank project launched by Google to incite collaboration to solve global issues, "X" representing a remedy. The project kicked off on February 1 at a three-day convention at CordeValle Resort in San Martin, California. The conventions are expected to occur "a few times a year". The website was inaugurated on February 6, 2012.The labs are reportedly run "as mysteriously as the C.I.A.," according to unnamed sources familiar with the project, and housed in two facilities -- one in California at the company's headquarters and one in an undisclosed location elsewhere in the country.
Bruno Giussani the European director of the TED conferences said he applauded the Google scheme "The world needs more ideas, not fewer and more commitment to sharing them freely and openly so that collectively we can test-run them and turn them into reality".

Solve for X talks, Google says, are selected on the basis of being able to answer three questions: 

  • "Does it highlight a huge problem?"; 
  • "Is there a concrete solution that could make a radical impact?"; and 
  • "Does it explain breakthrough science and technology that could enable this solution?"

Google Solve for X -

Solutions to the "world's greatest problems", ideas dubbed "technology moonshots", are the focus of Google's latest attention-grabbing venture.
"Solve for X" meetings bring together "entrepreneurs, innovators and scientists" to crack global problems.
This project brings unitedly whatever of Google’s Finest Minds and asks them to imaginatively tackle whatever of the most perplexing orbicular issues. 
Solve for X was initially believed to be linked to the Google X Lab working on new technology such as web-connected appliances, driverless cars, and space elevators, but eWeek reported that Google X is wed to more realistic undertakings, not the "moonshot" solutions Solve for X was created to pursue.
