Sony CyberShot TX55: World’s Thinnest HD Camera

Sony CyberShot is back with two new models. One is WX30 and the other one, about which I am talking about, TX55 which is supposed to be the world’s thinnest HD camera and that’s why I decided to write about it before WX30. The best and the most talked feature about Sony Cybershot TX55 is of course the thinness of the camera and then all the other specifications get along.

It was first announced on 25th July 2011 and is expected to hit the market by September 2011. The specifications of the camera are good enough and of course the thing which has gained it a lot of momentum, as you know by know, is the thinness.

You can check the specifications below;

  • Sony CyberShot TX55 has a Carl-Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with a 3.3 inch OLED touchscreen.
  • It is a 16.2 megapixels camera with 5x optical zoom.
  • It can record videos in Full High Definition 1080p as well as 3rd Dimension.
  • The special features include – Intelligent Sweep Panaroma, 3D Sweep Panaroma and Sweep Multi Angle.
  • Can give up to 125 minutes(250 shots) with a single charge.
  • It gives you an internal memory of 19MB which is fine for a camera.
  • This thinnest HD camera weighs 94 grams.
  • A 10x Clear Image Zoom is also available which magnifies pictures without losing the high quality of the picture.
  • The memory card slot in the TX55 works with Memory Stick Micro (M2) and MicroSD/SDHC cards.
  • The expect release month is September and the expected initial price would be $350. It will be first released in Europe and United States and after that will slowly expand to the rest of the world.
Great camera and nicely priced. Hopefully, it will release in India very soon after it is released in Europe and United States. Let’s see what happens.

Get to Know Everything About your Android Phone with Elixir App

Most of us these days own a smartphone having loads of features, but the dilemma is that we often are unaware of the specs of our portable. If you are not tech savvy then you won’t be aware of the facts like what the exact specifications of your Android phone are, what kind of sensors are there on it or how much RAM it boasts. So if you are curious to know what all does your Android phone packs, then Elixir is the right kind of application for you.

Elixir: App and Widget

What’s unique about Elixir is that it has both the app and Widget components meaning that users can either download a fully fledged application or just make use of the interface as a widget. First let’s have a look at the app:

When you launch the app, first thing that you will see is that the interface encompasses two screen lengths showing all the specs and stats about your Android phone. But this first screen is just the curtain raiser, clicking on any of the entry will take you further deep down.

Elixir interface

The specs list goes on and on and it includes the minutest of details like version incremental or even version codename. Though it seems to be a bit nerdy stuff, if you trying to solve an issue with something like Custom ROM then this information will be quite useful.

Tapping on the battery icon will display details like as follows:

Elixir Battery info

All the things that you want to know about your battery is clearly indicated and illustrated in this screen. Now let’s come over to Sensors Tab, tapping on it will display information about all the sensors installed on your phone.

Elixir sensors

Amazingly they all update in real-time as you toy-around with your phone. For example if I tap on the orientation sensor option, details regarding that will be displayed accordingly.

Lastly is the Running Tab, this tab is further divided into three sub-categories namely Processes, services and tasks.

Elixir running tab

Settings of Elixir is also a pretty comprehensive thing, you can set things like time format or temperature unit. But the thing I like the most is that from Settings on Elixir you can see all the important info about your Android phone right from your status bar. The app offers you “Circle style” or “Bar style” display and choosing any from that eventually lets you view the info in that format.

Elixir Circle interface

Elixir is available as two separate apps from Android Marketplace, that is app itself and a phone’s Personal Add-on. I think it’s an amazing app that will let you explore the potential of your Android powered smartphone.

Do try it out and Let us know that whether it was of any help or not.

Acer Iconia Tab A500 Now Available on Best Buy

We told you about the Acer Iconia Tab A500 few weeks ago, and that it was scheduled for an April 24th launch. Well, it has happened, the Iconia Tab is now available at online Best Buy stores and will soon be available in Stores starting today. The Iconia Tab A500 is another alternative tablet that you may want to consider if you were planning on getting yourself the Motorola Xoom or the Asus Eee Pad Transformer.

Honeycomb tablets aren’t available in bulk, as the OS is just starting to pick up in the tablet field. So if you’re considering a similar spec’d tablet as the Xoom or Transformer and do not want to empty your pockets on the Apple iPad 2, then this is the tablet for you.

Acer-Iconia-Tab-A500

The Acer Iconia Tab may well be from the other side of the world, but when you look at it’s features, it’s pretty much in the same league as the others. And the aluminium back panel just makes it look more stylish and gives it that high-class feel. A recap of what the Acer Iconia Tab features:

Specifications of the Acer Iconia Tab A500:

  • Wi-Fi enabled, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, USB, G-sensor, E-compass, gyrometer and more.

Best Buy will be the first one to officially sell the Iconia Tab A500 for a previously mentioned price tag of $449, which is better priced than the iPad 2 or the Xoom. The pricing isn’t too high either, considering what you’re getting, so if you’re keen on getting yourself a Honeycomb tablet and don’t want to spend a lot, then head over to Best Buy to order one now.
