0 Google Nexus 4

he Google Nexus 4 is the first Nexus device made by LG, it is closely related to the LG Optimus G but as Nexus fans will know, they are different in many important areas.

The key things that differentiate a Nexus handset from other Android devices are mostly about software. Nexus handsets come without the dubious add-ons supplied by carriers and manufacturers, and they are always the first smartphones to see new versions of Android with much longer OS support than non-Nexus devices.
The Nexus 4 is a powerful beast with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor inside with an impressive 2GB of RAM, there's a large 4.7" 768 x 1280 pixel true HD display on the front, an 8 megapixel primary camera on the back plus a 1.3 megapixel video calling camera. The Nexus 4 also supports NFC and Wireless charging.
The internal memory is a pretty limited choice between an 8GB or a 16GB configuration. There's no mention of a microSD slot, and frankly we think that this isn't enough storage for a high-end device such as this.

The operating system is Android 4.2 "Jelly Bean" - yes, you read that correctly, Android 4.2 is still called Jelly Bean when the rumours were that it was going to be called Key Lime Pie instead. Go figure.

1 Apple iPad Mini

It has been rumoured for a very long time, but Apple have now finally announced the Apple iPad Mini, a much more compact (and cheaper) alternative to Apple's traditional tablet line-up, and one that might spell serious trouble for Android tablet manufacturers.

At the basic end of the range, the iPad Mini costs just $329 for a 16GB WiFi-only version, compared to $499 for the equivalent full-sized model. At 308 grams, the iPad Mini is less than half the weight too.
The display is a 7.9" 768 x 1024 pixel panel, which is the same resolution as last year's iPad 2, although it isn't as high resolution as the third generation iPad.. but then it isn't really necessary in a display of this size. Inside is a dual-core A5 processor, probably similar in performance to the iPad 3. On the back is a 5 megapixel primary camera with a 1.3 megapixel one on the front for FaceTime calls.

0 Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Gamers are extremely particular about the kind of hardware that they use. You could say that there is even a sense of loyalty attached to it, although when it comes to sponsored pro-gamers, I do wonder whether they secretly feel that the company paying their monthly checks are the ones that they truly support deep down inside. Well, Logitech has long been known to come up with a fair range of gaming peripherals, and one of the their latest “wonders” would be the Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard that sports high-speed, low noise mechanical keys as well as an adjustable dual-zone backlighting in order to deliver lightning fast and whisper quiet gaming – letting you frag your opponents while the missus is soundly sleeping beside you. Best to make sure you have a silent mouse at your disposal, too.

0 3M Streaming Projector launched

When one talks about the name ‘3M’, what comes across your mind? I clearly remember that my very first “proper” mouse pad that I used for gaming was the 3M Precise Mousing Surface which cost a poor student like me a fair amount more than a decade ago, while I looked on enviously at the Razer Pads that my better off friends were able to afford. Thankfully, that did not mean I lost automatically in a Quake duel, since there is the skill factor to take into consideration. Well, 3M has come up with something totally different from a Mousing Surface this time around, but rather, they have introduced the 3M Streaming Projector which will rely on the spanking new Roku Streaming Stick to get the job done.

1 Nokia Asha 308 and Asha 309

The Nokia Asha 308 and Asha 309 are two closely related touchscreen feature phones priced at less than €100, and are due to hit the market during Q4 2012.

The difference between the two handsets is straightforward - the Asha 308 is dual-SIM device, and the Asha 309 substitutes WiFi for the second SIM slot. These are 2G devices only, but they do include a new version of the Nokia Xpress Browser which is optimised for slower connections, and of course the 309 has WiFi for use on a suitable wireless network.
These are two elegant looking devices with a 3" 240 x 400 pixel capacitive touchscreen on the front and a very basic two megapixel camera on the back. The Asha 308 and 309 are capable of video recording, but at a paltry 176 x 144 pixels at 10 fps it is probably best avoided.. although if you want, you can upload your blurrycam vids directly to YouTube.

The Asha 308 and 309 have a pretty comprehensive music player plus an FM radio, although video playback options look a bit limited. There's a microSD slot with a 2GB memory card included in the standard sales package. A stereo wired headset is included in the box.
Nokia are tentatively touting the Asha 308 and 309 as smartphones, citing GfK and IDC as supporters of that category. Most industry analysts count the Series 40 powered Asha range as feature phones though, but there is no doubt that Nokia is definitely challenging low-end smartphones in terms of features.

Available applications include support for Facebook and Twitter social networks, YouTube, Nokia Life+ in selected markets, a web browser, email client and 40 free games from EA plus other applications available from the Nokia Store.
The Nokia Asha 309 offers Nokia Maps and WLAN-based network positioning, although GPS would be a nice feature to see. WLAN positioning looks at the locally available WiFi networks and can usually work out a surprisingly accurate location from that data. The Nokia Asha 308 doesn't have WiFi, so it can't use WLAN positioning.. however, the SIM slots are hot-swappable which is another nice feature to have.

The 1110 mAh battery is quoted as giving up to 6 hours talktime and 21 days standby time (for the 308) and 27 days (for the 309). The Asha 308 is available in a dual-band 900 / 1800 MHz version only, the 309 is a quad-band GSM device. Both devices weigh a fraction over 100 grams and measure 110 x 54 x 13mm.

The Nokia Asha 309 will be available in black and white colours, the 308 in black and gold. Nokia say that the handsets should cost around €99 before tax and subsidy and should be out by the end of the year.
Although these two devices are primarily aimed at emerging markets, we can expect Nokia to sell quite a lot of these to prepay customers worldwide in the run-up to Christmas.
