Hello, friends! Today is Monday - the beginning of another hard working week in the last days of October. As usual, on Monday our website publishes the latest issue of the weekly digest Treshbox.ru, which collects better articles, reviews and news. Read more under the cut .
1. HTC Nexus 9, Motorola Nexus 6 and Android 5.0 Lollipop officially presented
It's pretty funny how a simple announcement of the new operating system and three devices from Google made more noise than the presentation of Apple on October 16th. Well, all right, last week Google introduced the Nexus 6 smartphone, Nexus 9 tablet, as well as the first prefix with Android TV operating system - Nexus Player. In addition, the final version of the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system was introduced. Are you waiting for an update to the new OS for your smartphone or tablet? - Then all the information you need is waiting for you in this topic.
2. Apple: the new iPad, iMac and Mac mini and the final versions of OS X 10.10 and iOS 8.1
The second most significant “ironic” announcement of the past week was Apple's presentation, which was surprisingly boring and filled with unnecessary moments. In any case, the event presented new iPad tablets, an updated iMac computer with a 5K display, a Mac mini mini-computer with new features, as well as the final versions of OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8.1. A comparison table and information on the Russian prices of the new iPad tablets is available on our website.
3. Apple will ship its new tablets with a built-in SIM card
I decided to put this news in a separate subheading, because it really deserves it. It became known that Apple will deliver its new iPad tablets to the US market with an already installed universal SIM card, which will conveniently switch between the services of the three largest local mobile operators. It is possible that soon such solutions in mobile devices will be used everywhere.
4. Samsung Exynos 7 Octa - the new eight-core 64-bit processor
Samsung last week introduced a single new device, which is quite atypical for this South Korean mobile manufacturer. However, instead, a new processor was announced - Samsung Exynos 7. It is this chip that is installed in the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 tablet. The novelty received eight new-generation ARM cores, a 64-bit architecture and some other features.
5. Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Russia will cost 49,990 rubles
In addition to the new processor, Samsung last week could not conceal the official price of the Galaxy Note Edge smartphone - the first device with an additional display on the side frame. Since the smartphone is a kind of experimental development, Samsung set a big price on it - 49,990 rubles. With such a price tag, the novelty is unlikely to become popular in Russia, and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is not needed, because it will go on sale in a limited edition.
6. Qik - an easy way to chat with Skype
Skype, which has long been owned by Microsoft, released a new mobile app called Qik last week. For many mobile users, the name Qik is associated with an application that once existed for a long time, but now another program will exist under this name. Qik is a simple and convenient messenger for exchanging fast video messages. The program can not even send text.
7. Vertu for Bentley - branded luxury smartphone
Another interesting “iron” novelty of the past week was the new smartphone from Vertu. A new device called Vertu for Bentley was developed in collaboration between the two companies, and it is aimed at lovers of luxury phones from the Finnish manufacturer and owners of Bentley cars. The device is distinguished by a design in which Vertu's titanium traditions intertwine, as well as genuine leather from Bentley. The smartphone received good specifications.
8. The network got high-quality photos of the new BlackBerry Classic
The news block will be closed by photos of the new BlackBerry Classic smartphone. Images of the yet unannounced news appeared on the network and immediately attracted the attention of fans of the Canadian brand, as well as lovers of stylish devices with QWERTY-keyboards. Judging by the photos, the smartphone will receive a classic BlackBerry keyboard, as well as an almost square touch screen.
And now it's time for the best articles and reviews of the past week:
1. Astramak Reviews: Huawei TalkBand B1 and SENSEIT R390
Last week, our full-time reviewer and administrator Astramak prepared for you two reviews of interesting and unusual devices - the Huawei TalkBand B1 bracelet and the SENSEIT R390 rugged smartphone. Both devices are quite interesting and deserve attention. Reviews are recommended for reading.
2. BossNote review and article on books printed on BlackBerry smartphones
Over the past seven days, I myself have tried to please you with as much news as possible, but I also found time for two articles. The first material is an overview of the BossNote application - a convenient task manager and calendar. And the second article will tell you three touching stories about the writers who created several of their books on smartphones from BlackBerry.
3. How it works: SONY Project Morpheus
Our author and editor Ivan Shevelev literally today released his new article from the series "How it Works." This time, IvS tells you about virtual reality and Sony's project in this direction - Project Morpheus. The article is very interesting and recommended for reading.
4. Apple Watch as the quintessence of high technology and industry tradition Luxury Watches
Well, to close this issue of the digest will be an article from a user under the nickname Catjit116, who wrote material about Apple's smart watches. The user emphasized that the Apple Watch is not just a smart watch, but also a luxury accessory.
These were the best and most interesting articles, reviews and news that were published on the Treshbox during the past week. The next issue of the weekly digest Treshbox.ru will be waiting for you on the site in exactly seven days.
