After months of stoking anticipation and dealing with criticism, RIM will finally reveal BlackBerry 10 to the world on Wednesday. It’s got to be a heady moment for everyone involved — this is the company’s big shot at redemption and relevance — but until then the rest of us will just have to make do with another batch of leaked BB10 hardware photos.
The subject this time around though is the white Z10, an oft-rumored version of the device that’s popped up in rumor posts and renders (including one that appeared as part of a leaked Verizon Wireless promo page) but generally not out in the wild. Longtime readers may know that I’m a bit of a sucker for a white phone, but the black bezel that runs around the white Z10′s 4.2-inch display is a neat little touch that makes the thing look visually distinct — certainly not a bad thing now that RIM preparing to wade once again into the middle of a heated smartphone conflict.
Naturally, the rest of the technical particulars are still under lock and key right now, but that hasn’t stopped leakers and rumormongers from disseminating a tentative spec sheet in recent days. Should it hold true, the Z10 will include 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and 1800 mAh battery, and an 8-megapixel rear camera. BGR reports that the Z10 will make its retail debut with a sub-$ 199 price tag as well, with editor Jonathan Geller pointing to a $ 150 price point as a distinct possibility.
Wednesday’s event will be the first time that the world at large can get better acquainted with BlackBerry 10 and the hardware that runs it, but it certainly won’t be the last. RIM has sunk an undisclosed amount of money into a 30-second spot due to run during the Super Bowl this Sunday, so it’s clear that RIM is gunning to make a real splash in the market over the weeks and months to come.

Considering the sheer volume of leaks and information floating around right now, it’s becoming more and more clear that the so-called LG Nexus 4 is the real deal. In case you didn’t already have enough to ponder though, the folks behind the infamous @evleaks Twitter account have gotten their hands on yet another photo of the unreleased device and a few new particulars about its size and weight.
But first, the photo. In fairness, it’s far from the best Nexus 4 image I’ve seen out there — that distinction goes to the rather artsy photoset shot (see below) by TechOnliner.ru — but it matches up nicely with earlier leaks. Speaking of matching up, the device’s purported spec sheet (quad-core 1.5GHz APQ8064 chipset, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and a 4.7-inch display running at 1280×768) is pretty much a direct translation of the components found in LG’s flagship Optimus G smartphone, again keeping with people’s prevailing notions about the device.
As has been pointed out more than a few times since the first Nexus 4 photos leaked, the device bears a striking resemblance to Samsung’s older Galaxy Nexus. Should @evleaks’ info hold true though, LG’s device will be just a hair heftier than its Nexus predecessor: it weighs in at 139g and sports a 9.1mm waistline.
Naturally, neither LG or Google are willing to confirm the device’s existence just yet (hopefully someone in the process goofs the way printer RR Donnelly did the other day), but that could all change very shortly. Google has already sent out invitations to an Android event on October 29 that joyfully declares “the playground is open” — coupled with earlier reports that the next Nexus device (or devices; playgrounds can be pretty boring if you’re by yourself) would be unveiled before the end of October, it seems like Google is gearing up to steal Microsoft’s thunder with some hardware announcements of its own.Related Posts:
At this point LG’s rumored Nexus phone is pretty much a lock, but a newly leaked pair of images may indicate that the so-called Nexus 4 won’t be in the Google Play Store alone. XperiaBlog happened upon photos of a Sony-made “Nexus X” smartphone on Picasa (where more than a few devices are outed ahead of schedule), which jibe well with an earlier report claiming Google was working on Nexus hardware with a handful of manufacturing partners.
The device in question bears a bit of resemblance to recently announced handsets like the Xperia T, but this thing (whatever it is) is far from a straight rebrand. The so-called Nexus X naturally appears to run an untouched version of Android unlike its cousins, though exactly which is nearly impossible to discern since it’s far from final — the missing Google search bar and app labels attest to that.
A quick peek confirms that there’s no Xperia branding to be found either — rather, there’s a sizable Google logo plastered along the device’s rear end. Speaking of rear ends, the device’s back also seems to curve inward at the middle before flaring out at the top and bottom. It’s a classic Sony design choice, and one that could help the device stand out among a potential crowd of Nexus-branded competitors.
Though the jury’s still out on the veracity of the images, I still can’t help but think a partnership like this could end up working out really nicely. After all, Sony’s no slouch when it comes to designing and crafting hardware (I was quite fond of the Xperia ion, myself), but the company’s fans often lament its slow turn-around time when it comes to tweaking and pushing out new Android updates. Of course, there are bigger implications to consider if the Nexus X turns out to be real — Google has never backed more than one standard-bearing Android phone at a time, so what does that mean for the Nexus brand as a whole?Related Posts:
Take one look at the upcoming 3D stop motion film ParaNorman and it’s easy to see that moviegoers are in for some stunning visuals come August 17th. Once you realize the contribution of 3D printing to the film’s creation, however, you’re likely to appreciate the movie on an entirely new level. In order to portray a wide array of emotions on the faces of the film’s 62 characters, animation studio LAIKA tapped 3D Systems and their ZPrinter 650 to generate over 31,000 individual facial parts for inclusion in the production — talk about working overtime. According to Brian McLean of LAIKA, “By using a color 3D printer we were not only able to push facial performance to new levels, but we were also able to achieve a level of detail and subtlety in characters’ faces that a few short years ago would have seemed impossible.” If you’ve yet to catch a preview of ParaNorman, just hop the break to see some of the printed handiwork.

The cost of entry into the world of film is constantly dropping. A new Kickstarter project from Nice Industries called The Aviator is attempting to bring it even lower. The product is a portable, low-cost camera jib that, as the Kickstarter page explains, when mounted, allows for cinematic, sweeping camera scenes. The compact kit is designed for cameras weighing up to 6 lbs. That should cover most DLSRs even with a hefty lens.
The project already hit its Kickstarter funding goal of $ 20,000, but it’s still worth a look. This project, like so many others on the site, shows how a product can bypass the typical nonsense and hit the market by simply getting enough pre-orders.
The Aviator is currently available through several Kickstarter funding levels. Pledge $ 299 and net just the travel jib and not all the extras — there are only four of these remaining as of this post’s writing. For $ 399 supporters will get the Aviator travel jib along with a bunch of pertinent accoutrements. Feeling frisky? Spend $ 799 and get a carbon fiber edition that weighs even less.
So now with The Aviator, film makers just need to add a camera, a bit of talent, and plenty of vision to take a quality shot.Related Posts:
