[News] Apple Replaces iPod Touch 4th Gen With A New iPod Touch 5th Gen

Image

Apple announced the new, fifth-generation 16 GB iPod Touch that costs $229 — making it a bit less expensive than the fifth-generation 32 GB iPod Touch at $299 and 64 GB iPod Touch at $399, both of which were released last fall. Meanwhile, Apple has stopped selling the fourth-generation 16 GB iPod Touch with a 3.5-inch screen, which costed $199.

The 16 GB device has a black front and silver back. The 32 GB and 64 GB versions are also available in pink, yellow, light blue, and red. The iPod Touch has been popular over the years. Apple has sold 100 million of the touch-screen iPods since their introduction in 2007, according to blogger Jim Dalrymple at The Loop. If you want to get your hands on the 16 GB model, Apple is selling the new variant in its online store starting 31st May 2013. Although rumors persist that Apple is looking at the development of a cheaper iPhone model to rake in a wider customer base. In an analyst note, Citi Research says the tech giant is heading naturally toward less-expensive models, and this “shift” is considered not only a move toward long-term, rather than short-term, profitability for Apple, but for the tech industry as a whole.

Recent image leaks of an allegedly lower-cost, iPhone have surfaced, suggesting that a cheaper, plastic-cased iPhone may also be on its way. Apple has not confirmed that a less expensive iPhone model is in the works, but considering the quiet introduction of a cheaper iPod Touch and the $329 iPad Mini, it may not be an unrealistic expectation.

ImageIf you purchase the 16 GB version of the iPod Touch, however, you will lose the rear-facing camera. The loss of the camera contributes to the slim design of mobile gadget, which weighs about 3 ounces (86 Grams) and is 4.86 inches tall and 2.31 inches wide. The front-facing camera remains, though it doesn’t have 1080p video recording capabilities. Someone who owns the iPod Touch 4th Generation is very unlikely to ever get used to the absence of a camera.

All in all, if you buy the new iPod Touch, you also lose the ‘Loop’ that comes with the 32 and 64GB models of the iPod Touch 5th Generation. If you are looking for an upgrade to your old iPod Touch and want it to be in budget, then you might want to consider this.

[Tutorial] How To Use The US Playstore Outside the US On Any Android Device

Untitled-1We live in a monopoly with USA as the super-power.So,it seems fair that Americans have an exclusive app market to purchase or browse content on.But this does not mean we can’t have access to it.A simple proxy does the trick,but the question is,which proxy and whether to pay for one or not?

Paying for a proxy is a stupid idea when there are free alternatives (which do work) out there.We’ll be talking about the most convenient and easy to use proxy in just a second.For now,let’s talk about what one needs to get access to the US playstore.

Downloads

Procedure

  1. Install Market Enabler on your phone just like you would install any other .apk file and download and install Hotspot Shield too from the playstore.
  2. Open Market enabler and select a ‘ US ‘ carrier from the second tab (swipe left once).We suggest using us-verizon.Make sure you don’t set it as ‘set on boot’ because that’ll interfere with your calls and/or messages.
  3. Now open up the VPN app and enable it.It’ll take a few seconds only.
  4. Now,go to Settings -> Apps -> All and look for ‘Google Play Store’ and empty it’s cache.
  5. Open up the Playstore and you should see the US Playstore which would look something like this.

[News] This Is What The LG Nexus Could Finally Look Like

Multiple sources have told us LG is working on a Nexus phone, and today we recently received the first hands-on report of the device. The source claims he is not a Google employee, but apparently he has access to one who says the devices were handed out last week for testing.

“I can confirm the next nexus is LG Optimus based. The phone looks surprisingly like the Galaxy Nexus and does not have sharp corners like the LG Optimus we already know. It has a silver’ring like the iPhone 3G around the outer edge of the screen which seemed to be similar to the Galaxy Nexus in size but was much better in brightness.

I couldn’t have said if it was larger in the few minutes that I had the phone. Also, it has Nexus written on the back like the Nexus 7 except there is a color element to it. The ‘X’ is in four colors. There was also the LG logo on the back.

Android 4.2 in its current state looked exactly like the 4.1.1 we love. There were no tabs on that build version for home-screens as you suggested from your other tipster. What I was amazed by is how fluid everything seemed to be from exiting apps, switching, etc. It seems like they’ve increased the number of transitions and their types. It still had the hodge-podge mess of multiple communication tools: Messenger, GTalk, Voice and SMS.”

As for the specs part of the leaks,the new nexus is gonna come with a lot of horsepower.The LG Nexus will have a Quad Core Snapdragon S4 processor – confirmed to be clocked at 1.5GHz – with an Adreno 320 GPU, as well as 2GB of RAM,.It’ll have a 1280 x 768 True-HD IPS screen and an 8 megapixel camera running  the new and improved Jellybean 4.2.

Considering this along with other leaks,this is what mockup artists came up with.

If you  ask me,I’d say this looks really sleek and sexy which has become the trademark for Nexus devices in the last few years.The launch event is scheduled for later this month (no fixed date as of now).Don’t worry,we’ll keep you posted!
