Galaxy series has brought great success to Samsung in smartphone filed, but it seems that Samsung is not going to expand it to WP8 system. News from media reports stated that recently Samsung has registered Ativ trademark to be the name of WP8 product. It is with the implication that Nokia WP8 will show up with brand-new appearance.

Ativ Series
Two names are included in Ativ trademark: Ativ Tab and Ativ S. For people who are familiar with Samsung products, it is quite easy to understand. Obviously, Ativ Tab belongs to tablet PC product. And it is believed that if Samsung does not make strategic adjustment on its products, Ativ Tab will be the exclusive name for Windows 8 tablet.

The naming rule of Ativ S will easily make you think of Samsung Galaxy S series. With the same rule, if the product strategy is not adjusted greatly, Ativ S will be the exclusive name for Windows Phone 8 smartphone.

4.8-inch Touch Screen
Although it is uncertain when the new trademark will be taken into uses, it is for sure that Ativ S will appear in Samsung WP8 flagship phone model. The current information indicates that new Samsung mobile phone GT-i88750 with Odyssey coded is probably to be the first model of Ativ S series. It mainly features 4.8-inch Super AMOLED touch screen, supports 1280 x 720 HD resolution that is awesome for you to watch video on Samsung phone, and is with built-in 8-million-pixel camera.

Unlike the high-key Nokia WP8 new devices, the first HTC WP8 phones hold low exposure rate. Currently, after the leaked information of HTC WP8 two new phone models, the latest information coming from Indonesia telecom regulation website shows the specific model of HTC WP8 new phone for the first time.

Phone Model
New HTC phone exists on Indonesia telecom regulation website is specially marked with the WP8 system status, the formal model is HTC C620e.

And judged from the previous information, HTC Accord is closer to HTC C620e in specifications. HTC Accord is included in the previous media report which is scheduled to make a debut in October this year.

And the past leaked information indicates that the first HTC WP8 phone will be “Rio”, or “Accord” or “Zenith”. The most powerful “Zenith” will be released in the fourth quarter this year, and also the “HTC Rio” is a new entry level model, so “HTC Accord” can be the first choice naturally.
It is reported that “HTC Accord” will be equipped with 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD2 touch screen, with 8-million-pixel built-in camera which supports 1080p HD video recording. Besides running on Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8260A dual-core processor, it has 1GB RAM and supports NFC function.

Top Issues You Should Know About Windows RT

Have you figured out the difference between Windows 8 and Windows RT? What matters you should take into consideration when choosing Windows 8 or Windows RT? So for anyone trying to make sense of the differences between Windows 8 and Windows RT, the following explanations will do you a favor absolutely.

1. What does Windows RT stand for?
Windows NT was said to stand for “Windows New Technology”, however, Microsoft has never explained what Windows RT is officially.

2. When can I get Windows RT?
Windows RT hardware should be available around the time Windows 8 launches, somewhere on or about October 26.

3. Why are there two editions?
Microsoft hardware partners should be money oriented. The success of Apple iPad convinced manufacturers that a product should be marketable. Windows RT gives tablet makers the option to make better and cheaper Windows tablets that run on less-expensive, less-power-hungry ARM chips instead of the standard Intel X86-style processors that other versions of Windows require. However, the main Windows code base is designed around X86, so total compatibility between the versions is still impossible.

4. What is the difference between Windows RT and Windows 8?
Windows 8 is a PC operation system while Windows RT runs on ARM chips, the embedded microprocessors that power smartphones. Instead, Nvidia, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments have signed on to manufacture chips to power Windows RT systems.

5. Is Windows RT a PC operating system?
You can say either YES or NO. Windows RT can not run on a PC processor, but Microsoft has stated that PC-like devices will be made by Windows RT partners, including tablets, traditional clamshell laptops and convertible devices.

6. Will Windows RT and Windows 8 work in the same way?
It is similar to Win8 Surface. Windows RT apps base on what is formerly called “Metro” (now the “Modern UI). The difference lies in that Windows Media Player is not included in Windows RT, or we can say that Windows RT sounds like Metro, plus Internet Explorer, plus an RT version of the Microsoft Office productivity suite. There are many complex applications and software covered in Windows 8.

7. Can I buy or upgrade to Windows RT?
No. Windows RT will come only bundled on dedicated hardware, for example, tablet. Later, Microsoft will release downloadable patches and updates.

8. Who will manufacture Windows RT hardware?
That’s a bit up in the air right now. Asus, Dell, Lenovo and Samsung have all said that they plan to manufacture Windows RT devices.

9. What will Windows RT tablet look like?
Microsoft claims that it is able to play animations at a fluid 60 Hz, and can share photos, URLs, map directions and other information via “bump”. The Surface RT tablets will be able to play HD video continuously for about 8 to 13 hours at screen brightnesses of 200 nits.

10. How much does Windows RT cost?
Microsoft has said that Widnows RT tablets will be “competitve” with the prices of existing ARM-based tablets. Some think this means about $399 or above, about the price of an Apple iPad; others think that a $200 tablet priced at about the level of an Amazon Kindle Fire or Google Nexus 7 fits the definition.

11. Is Windows RT compatible with Windows 8?
Both YES or No can be the answer, for Windows 8 is a superset of Windows RT. Windows RT apps will work on Windows 8, but Windows 8 apps will work on Windows RT only if they’re specifically designed for both operating systems.

12. Can I run my old software on Windows RT?
No. Software designed for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP or earlier versions can’t run on Windows RT, at least natively. Windows RT is an entirely new beast.

13. How can I run software on Windows RT?
Microsoft will launch a version of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote for Windows RT, which are suitable for both touch and minimized power consumption. Internet Explorer 10 and File Explorer will also be included. Users can purchase other apps from Windows Store. So until then apps should be a vital part of Windows RT tablet.

14. What’s developers’ view on Windows RT?
Until now, Windows RT is still a trial balloon for most developers. However, Microsoft claims that some 90% of the apps already submitted to the Windows 8 store will run on Windows RT.

15. Windows Phone 8
Microsoft has also said that the “common core” between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 will allow apps developed for Windows 8 to be easily ported to Windows Phone. But some modifications should be made.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Information Roundup: 5.5-inch Screen, A15 Dual-core Processor

There is a short period of time before the official release of Samsung Galaxy 2 in Berlin, and until then the world will focus on the largest smartphone manufacturer: Samsung. Today, I have rounded up some information on Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Let’s see what can we expect for in the following:

1. Adopt Samsung Exynos 5 Series Chip
The Exynos chip which is developed exclusively by Samsung has become a powerful assurance for the hot selling of Galaxy series products. In July, the technical white paper of the latest Exynos 5250 chip has been released. The information shows that Samsung Exynos 5250 is the first dual-core processor based on Cortex-A15 core design, taking the lead in supporting dual-channel 800MHz DDR3 memory. The new processor will employ Cortex-A15 HKMG process, supporting WQXGA resolution. More powerful processing performance and lower power consumption will be brought by this new processor. Although the flagship Samsung Galaxy S3 does not adopt this new processor, the popularity of Samsung Galaxy Note makes it possible that this powerful processor will be applied to the device.

2. 5.5-inch Screen
Because of the large screen, the first generation Samsung Galaxy Note has won great popularity. The previous 5-inch display has met with the visual requirements of users. And now it is speculated that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will be enlarged to 5.5 inches.
Seen from the screen leaked, Samsung Galaxy Note 2 screen is up 5.5 inches. And also the appearance will also adopt the water droplet model that is similar to Galaxy S3. Although the size has been enlarged, there is no obvious change when holding the device for Samsung has adopted the advanced narrow border design to enhance the user experience.

3. Up to 2GB RAM
The upgrade on hardware is always the motivation users buy the device. Smartphones in the current market are with 1GB RAM, including the international edition of Samsung Galaxy S3. It is for certain that Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is with 2GB RAM, which is used to compete with the next generation iPhone device.

4. S-Pen Upgrade
Besides the 5-inch screen, the S-Pen contributes a lot to the success of Samsung Galaxy Note. So we can expect that new functions will be added to S-Pen.

5. Enhanced Camera
All photography professionals know that there is no absolute relationship between the picture quality and the resolution. Sensor, graphics chip and processor are all the important elements in photography experience. If more powerful CPU is put to Galaxy Note 2, there is an absolute upgrade in image quality.

6. The First Samsung Android 4.1 Phone
There have been two months since the release of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but almost no mobile phone supports this new OS in the current market. Barring accidents, Galaxy Note 2 will be the first Samsung phone that is running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean system.
