In a press release, LG Electronics announced that its upcoming smartphone will make use of Qualcomm’s latest quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor as well as component technology from various sister companies. These include battery, panel and touch technology from LG Chem, LG display and LG Innotek, respectively.
LG Chem’s contribution will apparently give the new smartphone a battery that is 60 percent more efficient than similarly sized batteries. it is also claimed to have a lifespan of 800 recharge cycles, an improvement over the standard 500 charges in batteries today.
The new True HD IPS+ display will have a resolution of 1,280 x 768 pixels, and boasts of generating 470 nits of brightness, while supposedly consuming 70 percent less power compared with AMOLED screens when displaying a white background. This screen will have a pixel density of 320ppi, so working backwards using the formula for ppi calculation, it’ll sport a 4.7-inch display.
Related to this is the touchscreen technology that will eliminate the gap between the glass and the LCD panel. This is not completely new since HTC has something similar in the HTC one X Android smartphone.
While that’s all we know officially, the phone has unofficially been leaked through AndroidMx, which got hands-on time with it. Codenamed Optimus G, other noteworthy features include 2GB RAM for running programs, a 13-megapixel camera and Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich)–though we hope that last item may change since Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) is already available.
LG has not said when this product will be announced. if it’s soon, this phone needs to really impress as high-profile smartphone announcements from Apple, Nokia and Samsung are all expected in the next three weeks.
San Jose, Calif. — Nine Silicon Valley residents who presided over the epic three-week patent trial between smart phone titans Apple Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. began deliberating the multibillion-dollar case Wednesday.
Apple is demanding Samsung pay it $2.5 billion for allegedly stealing the design technology of the iPad and iPhone to create illegal knockoffs. Samsung counters that Apple stole its technology and is demanding $399 million.
During closing arguments Tuesday, a lawyer for Apple said that Samsung was having a “crisis of design” after the launch of the iPhone, and executives with the South Korean company were determined to illegally cash in on the success of the revolutionary device
Samsung’s lawyer countered that the technology giant was simply and legally giving consumers what they want: Smart phones with big screens. Lawyers finished their closing arguments late Tuesday.
The competing claims came after last-minute talks between chief executives failed to resolve the dispute.
Apple Corp. argues that Samsung Electronics Co. should pay the Cupertino-based company $2.5 billion for ripping off its iPhone and iPad technology when it marketed competing devices.
Samsung has sold 22.7 million smart phones and tablets using stolen — “infringed” in legalese — Apple technology since June 2010 on sales of $8.16 billion, Apple’s lead attorney, Harold McElhinny told jurors Tuesday.
“The damages in this case should be large because the infringement has been massive,” he said.
McElhinny said Apple confronted Samsung about the alleged copying and sought a resolution before filing its lawsuit last year.
“Instead of doing the right thing, Samsung decided to gin up claims of its own,” McElhinny said of Samsung’s counterclaim seeking $399 million from Apple for allegedly using Samsung technology in making the iconic iPhone and iPad.
Apple and Samsung combined account for more than half of global smart phone sales. Apple is also demanding that Samsung pull its most popular cell phones and computer tablets from the U.S. market.
“Apple is asking what it is not entitled to,” Samsung’s lawyer Charles Verhoeven said during his closing arguments. “Rather than competing in the marketplace, Apple is seeking an edge in the courtroom.”
Verhoeven argued that the state of technology has led most phone makers to design simple-to-use products with large, rounded rectangular faces. he conceded that Apple makes great products but said it doesn’t have a monopoly on the design it claims it created.
“There is nothing nefarious about this, it’s the way technology has evolved,” he said, showing jurors a slide of a Best buy advertisement with photos of similar-looking phones made by several different companies. “It’s not against the law in this country to be inspired by your competition.”
Verhoeven implored jurors to reject Apple’s claims as a way to preserve competition in the United States for smart phones and computer tabs. he said a verdict in Apple’s favor could reverberate throughout the marketplace.
“Consumers deserve a choice,” the lawyer argued.
The jury of nine people will consider the case after hearing three weeks of testimony from technology experts, patent professionals and company executives.
Apple’s damage demands, if awarded, would represent the largest patent verdict in the U.S.
From the beginning, legal experts and Wall Street analysts have viewed Samsung as the underdog. to begin with, Apple’s headquarters is a mere 10 miles from the courthouse, and jurors were picked from the heart of Silicon Valley where the company’s late founder Steve Jobs is a revered technological pioneer.
While the legal and technological issues may be complex, patent expert Alexander I. Poltorak says the case will likely boil down to whether jurors believe Samsung’s products at issue look and feel almost identical to Apple’s iPhone and iPad.
“Most jurors will probably say they look alike,” said Poltorak, who is chief executive of General Patent Corp.
In June, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh called Samsung’s Galaxy 10.1 tablet computer “virtually indistinguishable” from Apple’s iPad and banned its sale in the United States until the resolution of the case.
“There was some evidence that Samsung altered its design to make its product look more like Apple’s,” Koh found two months before the trial started.
To overcome that hurdle, Samsung’s battalion of lawyers has been arguing that many of Apple’s claims of innovation are either obvious ideas or were actually stolen ideas from Sony Corp. and others. Experts called that line of argument a high-risk strategy because of Apple’s reputation as an innovator.
“Saying Apple is a copyist is going to be a hard sell,” said Ellen Brickman, a New York-based jury and trial consultant. “Apple changed the world when it came to computers. Apple changed the world when it came to phones.”
Poltorak said a verdict in Apple’s favor would cost Samsung a lot of money but wouldn’t dramatically disrupt the smart phone markets. he predicted that Samsung engineers would quickly redesign the company’s smart phone and computer tablets to compete if Apple wins the lawsuit.
Apple lawyers argue there is almost no difference between Samsung’s products and those of Apple, and presented Samsung’s internal documents they say show it copied Apple’s designs. Samsung lawyers countered that several other companies and inventors had previously developed much of the Apple technology at issue.
The U.S. trial is just the latest skirmish between the two over product designs. the two companies have been fighting in courts in Australia, the United Kingdom and Germany.
The case is one of some 50 lawsuits among myriad telecommunications companies jockeying for position in the burgeoning $219 billion market for smart phones and computer tablets.
At this year’s MWC event in Barcelona, the main attractions were the quad-core powered smartphones unveiled by a number of manufacturers. In this article I will look at some of these, so you can decide which one comes out on top.
HTC one X
HTC’s new flagship smartphone the HTC one X is one of the most high tech smartphone out there. it ticks all the boxes and makes an ideal choice for the out and out tech enthusiast. HTC’s most advanced touchscreen on a smartphone is in the form of a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED screen with a whopping resolution of 720x 1280 means HD movies, games and photos are displayed in super high quality. as a camera phone, this is also HTC’s most advanced to date. Rather than upping the pixel resolution, it remains at 8 megapixels lie the previous HTC flagship the Sensation XE. The camera on the one X is capable of capturing 1080p video and even simultaneous photo and video capture. The Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ software is installed as standard, so users can enjoy all the benefits of the most advanced version of the software to date.
The LG Optimus 4X HD is LG’s first attempt at a quad-core smartphone. it takes the place of the LG Optimus 2X which was their previous flagship phone, and the first smartphone in the world to sport a dual-core processor. The LG Optimus 4X HD brings the format bang up to date. as the name suggests, the handset has an HD screen which sports the same resolution and dimensions of the HTC one X. The screen, unlike that of the HTC device utilises HD-IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen technology. This produces equally impressive display quality and responsiveness, but does not quite match the battery efficiency of AMOLED panels. A similar 8 megapixel camera is included, and comes with a similar package of features as well as 1080p video.
Aside from what I have already covered in this article, there are several features which differ between the two phones. The most noticeable is the differences between the designs of the phones. The HTC one X looks very similar to the previous flagship the HTC Sensation XE, whereas the LG Optimus 4X HD has a very different aesthetic. Both handsets run the new Android OS, but the HTC one X has the newest version of the HTC Sense UI, which allows a high degree of customisation within the user interface, whereas the LG Optimus 4X HD runs the stock Android user interface. The processing power of each handset is equally matched; both phones pack super powerful 1.5 GHz quad-core processor
When comparing these two phones, we can see that many of their key features are equally matched on paper. Choosing between them is likely to come down to personal preference for either manufacturer, or the design of a particular handset. because they were both unveiled a matter of weeks ago, and have the new Android ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ software, they are both just as impressive as each other. whichever you choose, you will not regret your selection.

EVEN THE RAIN: Movie Trailer
TAMBIEN LA LLUVIA sets up an intriguing dialogue about Spanish imperialism through incidents taking place some 500 years apart, while examining the personal belief systems of the members of a film crew headed by director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) and his producer Costa (Luis Tosar) who arrive in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about the conquest of Latin America. Set in February and March of 2000 when real-life protests against the privatization of water rocked the nation, the film reflexively blurs the line between fiction and reality in what Variety calls "a powerful, richly layered indictment of the plight of Latin America’s dispossessed." Carlos Aduviri is dynamic as a local who is cast as a 15th century native in the film, but when the make-up and loin cloth come off, he sails into action protesting his community’s deprivation of water at the hands of the government. meanwhile, Gael Garcia Bernal’s Idealist film director is as relentless as Werner Herzog infamously was in making FITZCARALDO, pushing ahead against all odds, ignoring the prevailing danger about to disrupt at any moment. despite the devastation emerging around him, Sebastian seems unable to engage with any emotion over than a dogmatic desire to get his film done. and of course, the film also recalls themes in Herzog’s AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD and the film-within-a-film scenes are as brutal as any in APOCALYPTO.
