D Link DWR 131 Hands on And Tata Photon + Config

These days I started travelling a lot and I use a Tata Photon+ data card to connect to Internet. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a Working driver of Tata Photon+ for Mac Lion OS X and I ended up purchasing a D Link DWR 131 Router. It’s a 3G router, which convert your 3G connection into Wi-fi connection and give you the power of portability. This works with almost all the popular Indian 3G card along with Data card like Tata Photon +, MTS, Reliance and many more. I will come to the setup part later but first lets look into some of the features of D Link DWR 131 Router.

D Link DWR 131 Router feature and review:

I’m a big fan of Belkin and D link product when it comes to router and I picked D link 131 router for almost 360o INR ( $70) from a local gadget shop. Though, you can always search it online and get it for much cheaper price and deal.

DWR 131 3G router comes with 1700 mAH battery and offer many feature which you may or may not use. Specially, if you are looking for a cheap and simple solution, there are other cheap options too but if you are looking for something long term and offer more features like Ethernet connection, multiple Wi-fi connectivity and simple to configure Wizard, D link DWR 131 router could be one of the good pick. This 3G router supports multiple network (EV-DO/CDMA/HSPA+/HSUPA/HSDPA/UMTS) and in the accessories it comes with one Charger, Battery, Router and a Lan wire.

Configuring D link 3G router with Tata Photon +:

The reason I ended up buying this router is because of two reason:

  • No Tata Photon + working driver for Mac Lion OS X 10.8.2+
  • Connecting multiple device with same data dongle.

I could have used my Mac book as Wi-fi router but that is not very convenient when you are travelling and you want to preserve battery as much as you could.  By default this router doesn’t work with Tata photon+ but you can manually set it (Which is easy and configure your D link router to work with Tata Photon +. Follow this step by step guide:

  • Switch on your D link DWR 131 Router and put in battery and connect it with Charger.
  • Plug in your Tata Photon + data card
  • Open 192.168.0.1 in your browser
  • Default username: admin Password: Blank
  • Click on Setup > Manual Internet connection Setup

Now in the Ethernet Port select Wan and use Dial up profile as manual.  There are few settings which you need to make and those are easy. 

  • Country : India
  • Telecom : Others
  • 3G network: WCDMA/HSPA
  • username: internet
  • password: password
  • Dial number: #777

Click on Save settings and it will reboot the router and you will be connected to internet using your Tata photon + data card. Check out this screenshot for any confusion:

D-Link DWR-131 tata Photon plus config

That’s it and now you can enjoy the power of Wi-fi even when you are moving and you can connect to multiple devices at one time. If you are a frequent traveller and have multiple gadgets with you, you should consider buying D link Pocket router or from any other company, not only it will give you piece of mind, but you will also be connected to Internet all the time.

Do let me know if you are stuck anywhere and I will try to find a solution.

Lytro Camera: Shoot First, Focus Later

I’m not a photographer, but that doesn’t mean I do not love using cameras, specially something as amazing as this one. Yet, I don’t use DSLR cameras or such just because they have too many settings and I’m a lazy guy. For times like those, the Lytro Camera is a dream come true. This is the first camera in the world that doesn’t need any kind of settings or focusing or fiddling with buttons and knobs.

The Lytro Camera, unveiled by Lytro, has an anodized aluminum frame, an f/2 lens with 8x optical zoom, two buttons, a 11 mega ray light-field and is all fit into a nice to hold rectangular body. What’s so special about this camera? The Lytro camera can take living photos, that means, you can click a picture and then focus afterwards. This is a new way of taking and sharing pictures and is definitely going to cause a stir in the photography communities.

<Image Credit>

You wouldn’t ever need to focus while taking a picture, and because of that, this camera is amazingly fast and has no shutter lag. The two buttons on the camera will Turn it on and Take pictures. It turns on instantly and takes photos just as you click the second button, no waiting. This means that you’ll never miss a moment, it’s that fast and there is a video demonstration to prove that.

The Lytro is the only consumer camera that lets people instantly capture a scene just as they see it by recording a fundamentally richer set of data than ever before. Lytro cameras feature a light field sensor that collects the color, intensity, and the direction of every light ray flowing into the camera, capturing a scene in four dimensions. To process this additional information, Lytro cameras contain a light field engine that allows camera owners to refocus pictures directly on the camera. When the Lytro’s living pictures are shared online, the light field engine travels with each picture so anyone can interact with them on nearly any device, including web browsers, mobile phones, and tablets-without having to download special software.

That’s it. Photography is not going to be like before. The Lytro Camera comes in three colors and with 2 storage options, 8GB and 16GB.  Prices start from $399 and go up to $499. That’s really cheap for a camera that can take living photos. You can pre-order the Lytro camera on their official website and it will be shipped to you in early 2012. The software is currently only available for the Mac, but it’ll be soon available for Windows. Ren Ng, the founder of Lytro states;

Light field photography was once only possible with 100 cameras tethered to a supercomputer in a lab. Today it’s accessible to everyone in a camera that’s small and powerful, but incredibly easy to use. Our goal is to forever change the way people take and experience pictures, and today marks our first major step.

Watch the demo video from CNET after the break.

Are you shocked right now? Amazing technology isn’t it? I bet you want to own one right now.

Connect two or more Power Supply Units with Add2PSU

Many a times, when you want to build a gaming PC, one of the most important things that you would need is the power supply unit. Without one, it’s really hard to run all those super powerful graphic cards and coolers and hard drives and all the things that you’ve cramped in to the computer.So, if you end up buying the wrong power supply, which doesn’t manage to power all those basic components, then that means you need more power. Now, you’d be certainly disappointed and would want to buy a new psu. Don’t!!

This is something really amazing, and not many people know about this, well, at least I didn’t until recently. Don’t sell your PSU, instead you can use your old one or buy something cheaper and connect them to create a dual power supply unit. Yup, that’s right, actually you can even connect three if you have a cabinet that’s big enough. How exactly do you do this?

Okay, first of all, you’ll need to make sure that your computer case can accommodate dual power supply units. To make this happen, you’ll need to get a dual psu adapter. Add2PSU is one such mainstream company that makes dual psu adapters and sells them to you or directly to manufactures, they’re really durable and work great. You can even connect three or more power supplies at one go and get the best out of them all. That’s what gamers do don’t they? Get the best juice out of anything and everything. You can check out the video of how this actually works and how to get it right after the break.

Hope this helps you out, when it comes to power supply woes. Check out Add2PSU. It will cost you about $44 with international shipping, which I don’t think is bad at all.

2 Amazing Tablet Devices Other than iPad that are Worth Buying

Talking about a tablet device, first thing that pop-ups in our mind is Apple’s highly popular and fastest selling iPad. But since iPads release, a tablet race has triggered, with manufacturers scrambling to get hold of a larger share in the market. A lot of Android powered tablets have also flooded the market and with their large option base they are not at all a bad deal if you are looking to buy a tablet device. Keeping in view this, I am reviewing 2 feature-rich Android tablet devices that a potential buyer should definitely check out before making any decision.

Lenovo IdeaPad K1

Lenovo Tablet

Released in July, this is the first consumer Android powered tablet released by Lenovo. The device’s eye catching look is its greatest power, you can choose a custom color for the device’s back panel. The other impressive thing in IdeaPad is its user interface, though you will find Honeycomb on lot of other tablet devices but for K1 the developers have added a Launcher Widget right in the middle of the homescreen. There is an app wheel as well that can be employed for launching apps you like the most quickly.

It has a Tegra 2 processor under the hood and boasts a battery life of almost 8 hours which is quite good. K1 weighs about 1.6 pounds which makes it a bit heavy as compared to other tablets and especially iPad. Still I think for $499 it is a fair deal. You can get more information about IdeaPad K1 from lenovo’s shop page.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer TF101

ASUS Eee Pad

When ASUS launched Eee Pad it was all over on the blogosphere and made quite a huge splash. According to some surveys and reports this particular ASUS Tablet device is tailing iPad2 in terms of sales and popularity. Though surprisingly ASUS didn’t make any substantial marketing effort even then E-Pad Transformer has made quite a mark.

It gained popularity partly due to the availability of a keyboard dock, lot of tablet devices are designed to work with docks but Eee Pad TF101 is especially designed to work with one automatically. Once you insert it in a keyboard dock, TF101 behaves like a Netbook and apart from this there is a battery hidden in the dock aswell that extends the battery life to almost 16 hours. Powered with the same Tegra 2 Chip as Lenovo IdeaPad, ASUS TF101 is priced at $399 with $150 additional if you choose to buy a dock too. For detail specs you can visit ASUS webpage.

Tablet market is transforming rapidly so before buying something doing a market survey is quite good. I think these two Android tablets are a complete package and one should consider them too in their survey list.

Top 3 PMPs (Portable Media Players) Available in India

PMP stands for Portable Media Player. These kind of devices are capable of storing and playing digital media such as audio, images, video, documents, etc. The PMPs are especially made for those people who are very much on-the-go and cannot survive without the daily dose of technology and entertainment. PMPs can entertain you a lot and won’t make you feel lonely. Even though, mobile phones are quietly replacing the PMPs but still many people like having PMPs as their must have Gadgets. The PMPs help you to enjoy and have fun with the digital media you want to see and listen. That’s why I decided to find three PMPs which you would search for if you are looking for a PMP in India:

1. Apple iPod Touch 4

It’s Apple only, which took PMP to new heights. The coolness of the iPod touchscreen is one of the major reason to call it as best PMP available in the market. iPod is not only available in the Touch form but it is also available in other different forms(iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle and iPod Classic). This PMP is truly a gem. The best of them all.

  • iPod Touch 4 comes in three models – 8 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. These three models would cover all the needs of a person.
  • It is lightweight and it weighs only 101 grams.
  • It has a display of 3.5 inches with multi-touch function. The resolution is 960 x 640 pixels.
  • iPod Touch comes with 2 cameras. Rear camera of 0.7 megapixels and front camera of VGA quality(for Facetime).  It also allows us to record videos in High Definition (720p).
  • Up to 40 hours battery for music playback and up to 7 hours for video playback.
  • 256 MB of RAM & 800 Mhz Processor is available.
  • Facetime, Retina display, HD video recording and Game center.

Apple iPod Touch 4 is a great PMP with superb features and it should be the first choice if you are out in search of a PMP.

iPod touch prices in India:

  • iPod Touch 4 (8GB) – Rs. 15,400
  • iPod Touch 4 (32GB) – Rs. 19,900
  • iPod Touch 4 (64GB) – Rs. 25,900

2. Sony Walkman NWZ-A845/B 

Sony Walkman is one of the most famous brands that offer PMPs. Sony Walkman series is very preferable in India because of the famous-ness of Sony, here in India. Sony Walkman NWZ-A845/B is one of the best in the whole Sony Walkman series and hence I am including it in the list. Read about its specifications and the features below and you may get impressed as well.

  • Sony Walkman NWZ has a storage of 16 GB.
  • It weighs just 62 grams which is just too light to carry.
  • It has a 2.8 inched OLED color display screen with a resolution of 400 x 240 pixels.
  • No camera is available in this PMP.
  • Up to 9 hours battery for music playback and up to 8 hours for video playback.

This PMP is just a simple one. Two things where it excels would be the weight and the cool design. The design is enough to attract and the specs are fine enough to take this PMP into consideration.

The price of Sony Walkman NWZ-A845/B is Rs. 11,990

3. Cowon V5 HD

Cowon isn’t a much famous PMP brand in India but it surely is outside India. Cowon produces exciting and great gadgets. It has also launched a few PMPs, Cowon V5 HD being one of them. This PMP would impress you with its sleekness and great battery life. This PMP is cool and is filled with awesomeness. The specifications and features are given below.

  • Cowon V5 HD comes in two models –  16 GB and 32 GB.
  • It weighs 197 grams which maybe a little over-weight for a PMP.
  • It has a 4.8 inches display screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
  • No camera is available in this PMP.
  • Up to 45 hours for music playback and up to 10 hours for video playback.

This PMP is sleek and great in design. A PMP that should be totally considered when looking for a PMP. The only negative point would be the absence of Wi-Fi which should be added soon. The pricing is given below.

  • Cowon V5 HD (16 GB) – Rs. 14,000
  • Cowon V5 HD (32 GB) – Rs. 17,000

My choice would be Apple iPod Touch 4. Go for it if you have big pockets and want some awesomeness. Do let us know if you have any other recommendation for PMP’s in India?

Tata Sky Plus HD Review

India has seen enormous growth in HDTV sector in recent days and specially when all kind of latest technology is coming to India, we can’t ignore the HD segment for entertainment. All major online video sites like YouTube started offering HD videos and now when we shop for new TV, we make sure that it comes with HD capabilities and HDMI cable to connect your laptop to your TV.

Anyways, the point here is people in India are getting tech savvy and unlike old days, they started preferring quality over quantity. We all know that high definition videos gives you best experience when you watch a video. In India, many TV channels including Star TV network started offering HD version of channels. If you shop for a new set top box, it’s important to opt for a HD set top box instead of conventional set top box.

Some time back we received a review piece of new Tata Sky HD set top box and we used it for 2 weeks. Luckily we received the review piece around world cup and we enjoyed the ad free World cup on new Tata Sky HD plus. Tata Sky HD plus is one featured pack set top box which allow you to record your favorite serial so that you can watch it later.

This feature sets Tata sky HD plus apart from all other set top box in the market. Here are some pictures of Tata sky plus HD:

tata sky plus HD tata skyplus hd 2

tata sky [plus hd 3

You can find the complete unboxing pictures of Tata Sky Plus HD on my Flickr account.

Features of Tata Sky plus HD:

  • Tata Sky HD plus offers certain features which let it stay ahead of it’s competitor:
  • Record TV up to 500 GB.
  • Record any channel while watching other channel
  • Rewind while watching current show
  • Parental control
  • Easy to use Remote control

I have been using normal Airtel DTH connection for long but after using TATA sky HD plus, I will be changing my DTH connection soon. More over one major difference which I noted while using TATA sky plus HD is the response time. When you change channels, unlike my current Airtel DTH connection, it changes channel within ms. Though for now, I can’t compare Tata sky HD with Airtel HD connection as I have not used the later one. Though if you are planning to buy Tata Sky plus HD and looking for recommendation, you should grab it right away.

Tata sky HD is hassle free purchase as engineer will come to your house and will set up everything for you. You can find price and other booking details of Tata HD on their official site.

If you are an existing Tata Sky HD plus user, do share your reviews and feedback about their service.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Scheduled for April 24 Launch

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is a really long name for a 10 inch tablet, but it’s still an icon with tablets when it comes to features and price. Acer isn’t well known in the field of tablets, and although this isn’t it’s first tablet, they haven’t made a mark yet in the fast growing field. With the launch of the Iconia Tab A500 things may turn out to be a little different as this is a really well manufactured quality product from software with decent hardware specs.

Acer announced in a Press Release yesterday, that they will launch this tablet on the 24th of April in stores and online sites worldwide. The Acer Iconia Tab A500 with Wi-Fi will be the first one to be launched, although pre-orders for this device has already begun on Best Buy. The tablet has a good hardware configuration, but what is most striking is that it will be running on the tablet optimized Android Honeycomb 3.0 operating system. Another amazing feature is of course it’s price, which you’ll find at the end of this post.

Specifications of the Acer Iconia Tab A500:

  • 10.1 inch 1280×800 WXGA Capacitive Touchscreen display
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS
  • Nvidia Tegra Dual-core processor 250, 1GHz and 1GB DDR2 RAM
  • 16 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD up to 32GB
  • A front facing 2 megapixel web camera and a rear facing 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and LED flash
  • Wi-Fi enabled, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, USB, G-sensor, E-compass, gyrometer and more.

The Iconia Tab isn’t a bad looker either, it is made of Aluminum and has a metallic finish that gives it an attractive appeal. See you for yourself in the picture below!!

The Acer Iconia Tab A500 is currently, as I said before, is available for pre-order on Best Buy online store for an amazing price of $449 and yes you get the tablet too. The pricing is amazing, when you compare it to the Motorola Xoom or Apple iPad 2 as it also has similar hardware specifications. It will be available for pre-order on other online stores beginning April 14.

What do you think of the Acer Iconia Tab A500? Give us your opinion!
