The processor that will equip the new iPhone will be an evolution of the current A5: the A5X. As revealed by the company, the new CPU processing speed quadruples in the Nvidia Tegra 3 and achieves an enviable gaming performance thanks to quad-core GPU.
Other improvements made ??was the iSight camera 5Mpx, which uses the same technology presented at the 4S and the iPhone camera allows video shot in 1080. This improvement was one of the most requested by iPhone users around the world and represents a real quantum leap with the rest of the tablets available in the market, equipped with cameras are usually very poor.
Regarding connectivity, the rumors were confirmed. The new iPhone also incorporates WiFi version, three LTE 4G connectivity. The U.S. confirmed carriers are AT & T, Verizon, Rogers, Telus and Bell. He adds the ability to function as hot spots.

Now we have spoken about the Da Vinci Bq and Bq Verne Plus , now it analyze the new tablet Bq Darwin. The fact is that I have taken a few days ago a friend was working in an electronics store to get myself a lot of tablets Bq (the iPhone 2 will not let me or dead) and drifting in the day to see the performance of each and you can do the criticism.
In any case today we talk about Darwin Bq tablet , a tablet of 8.4-inch whose main disadvantage is that your WiFi is not as powerful operating system is quite outdated. However, the new Darwin Bq is definitely an option to consider at the time of entering the world of Android tablets at affordable prices. Certainly if they buy this or any other online are often cheaper than in stores.
Display and first impressions
The Bq Darwin has a screen of 8.4 inches with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels (slightly better than Verne Plus). The downside of the screen is once again we have a resistive type screen, ie it costs more basic tasks having to do more strength to press the screen. The tablet itself is quite thin and very light which gives pleasure to take one.
Processor and storage
The processor section we have a curiously interesting processor dual-core ARM . Storage, as in many other tablets Bq is 8 GB but can be expanded through the microSD card slot.
The processor performs quite well and performs most tasks with fluency. On the odd occasion I was stuck but that was when overloading the OS with too many things simultaneously. Remember that the operating system of this tablet is Android 2.1 , the version Eclair Google operating system for mobiles. A somewhat rudimentary when compared, for example, Honeycomb Android but more than enough for most mortals who just want a gadget to entertain a little way to work.
The connectivity of the gadget is somewhat limited. WiFi and an entry miciUSB are our only connection to the outside world to the tablet. There is no support for Bluetooth and 3G networks which means that you can only use the tablet in WiFi hotspots, leaving out those who want a tablet to connect anywhere in the city.

Asus sharpen their weapons in “War of the tablets” and begins to filter images of a tablet that will surely give a lot to discuss. And it is not only a tablet but a hybrid between a tablet and Smartphone. In itself the concept of Asus that has leaked just a few minutes with our friends from Pocket Now we unveiled a smartphone that is embedded in the back of the tablet to function as the brains of the tablet.
Thus we get a sort of 2 x 1. On the one hand we have a powerful smartphone on the other hand we can choose to turn this into a tablet Smartphone when you like. It is best that we could choose to pay only one data rate to be no need to hire a data rate for our tablet and a separate one for our Smartphone, which would reduce costs enough data rates monthly.
As the operating system to run on both Smartphone and Tablet rumor has it Android Ice Cream Sandwich, a new version of Android that would work for both tablets and smartphones efficiently for both.
At the moment we were awaiting to see what Asus says this morning in relation to officially present the gadget in society. His name would theoretically be the Asus Phone Pad.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest drawbacks of the i Pad or IOS is the operating system that has no support for Adobe Flash content . Thanks to this “defect” that many other companies have managed to sell their tablets highlighting that do have the ability to play Flash content (see the last advertisement for the Galaxy Tab 10.1). So is it possible to live without flash?
When surfing the web from computers or laptops rarely know if we are content with Flash, HTML or Java and directly many of us do not understand it we want to understand. However, the lack of flash becomes a problem for anyone who wants to play certain videos and content.
Many Google applications, such as statistics, using Flash . In turn, many popular sites also use this tool. For example, Megavideo. There are many games that use Flash, primarily those who enjoy Facebook as Farmville.
The answer to this question ultimately will depend on how you use it on the web. If you love watching videos on Megavideo and use the Web primarily for this reason, a product with IOS will not be very useful. However, if you’re interested in is reading, watching videos on Youtube and play with fun applications, then you may not notice its absence. Some people notice and that the lack of Flash is a major defect and there are others who can live without it because the iPhone is a gadget that only use on the road and not your primary work device.
All is not Apple or Samsung on the ground of the tablets . There are also small businesses and BQ also dare to launch their own tablets that do not meet even the most spectacular features make up for a competitive price that makes them very desirable for many people. This is the case of the tablet BQ Verne Plus, a small tablet of 7-inch we tested and discussed here today My Gadget World.
Display and first impressions
Accustomed to touch the iPhone 2 ( you know the rumors of the iPhone 3? ) to get a BQ Verne Plus for the first time you may feel a little uncomfortable mostly due to the thickness of the tablet. However, the handling of the tablet is quite fluid . Your screen 800 x 480 pixel resistive type is more than enough to surf the web and run most applications. The only negative in the case of the screen is just as resistive type which requires a little extra effort when using the tablet.
Memory, processor and connectivity
Looking inside the gadget we have a capacity of 8 GB storage expandable via a microSD card , something very positive for the Bq.
In the section of the processor, the tablet BQ Verne Plus carries a 600 MHz ARM 9 . The truth is that it is the best processor considering the competition. However, taking into account the adjusted price (220 €) we let it happen.
As for the connectivity of the tablet BQ we have a HDMI output, WiFi connectivity and microUSB 2.0 output . It also highlights that the tablet comes in two versions, the WiFi and the 3G version so it is possible to get a data rate and stay connected at all times.
For entertainment the Verne Bq Plus incorporates a 1.3 megapixel camera , headphone jack and speakers which curiously amazed at its quality. The photos clearly leave much to be desired but considering that this is not the main objective of the tablet, but a secondary aspect we will not so important.
Autonomy is not bad, it can withstand almost 6 hours surfing the web in an intensive and 9 hours listening to music. Nor can expect all the gadgets they reach the autonomy of 10 hours of iPhone 2.
Perhaps this is the most negative of the tablet. And is that Android 2.1 it is true that a little disappointed that has not been upgraded to a newer version of the Google operating system for mobiles. But neither wrong, Android 2.1 has been one of the best versions of the operating system and access the Android App Store opens up a world of possibilities for the tablet.
Obviously not going to be an iPhone 2. The quality is adjusted according to their price. It is a tablet size that is well worth fitting for one who wishes to enter the world of tablets for the first time but do not want to spend large amounts of money. The operating system is a bit old but that is something you can ignore if you’re not a geek total. At the end of the tablet is fine if you primarily use to surf the web, run any application and view a video, that is what it is for a tablet. Turn leads to an attractive price for a tablet that you can keep us entertained during long journeys to work.
With a different concept to that of the tablets Android Iconia, Acer ventures into a hybrid such as the Acer Iconia W500, tablet design that adds a base with a keyboard that also incorporates an Ethernet port and USB port.

Nvsbl Nvsbl P4D submitted the V1, which would be coming to Spain in September and received Andora as the operating system as one of its main attractions.
