If you didn’t get enough mobile news during the week, not to worry, because we’ve opened the firehose for the truly hardcore. This past week, we discovered an abundance of special edition smartphones and T-Mobile gave ten new reasons for owners of unlocked iPhones to smile. So buy the ticket and take the ride as we explore the “best of the rest” for this week of November 19th, 2012.
Nokia has recently made efforts to distinguish its smartphones with advanced photographic capabilities, introducing the PureView 808 with a 41MP rear camera. Now, Nokia’s long-time head of imaging and photography Damian Dinning, who has been with the company since 2004, is confirmed to be departing as of November 30. Dinning was also said to have been instrumental in the development of Windows Phone imaging software, through Nokia’s partnership with Microsoft.
Nokia also recently touted the Lumia 920′s low-light image capture prowess. And indeed, the 920 does take much brighter, better images in low-light situations thanks to optical image stabilization features built into the camera module. Camera quality and features have been promoted by Nokia as key differentiators for its Windows Phone 8 handsets versus competition from Apple and Android hardware OEMs.
Dinning’s background includes roles at Minolta and Eastman Kodak, and Nikon. In September he released a paper detailing Nokia’s plans regarding PureView technology and how it would be employed in the 920. In it, he described improved methods for making the most of the pixels available from that smartphone’s 8 megapixel shooter, rather than trying to cram more megapixels into a small form factor, as Nokia had done with the 808 PureView.
Amateur Photographer reports that Dinning’s departure “came as a blow” to Nokia higher ups, and indeed, losing the man responsible for one of their smartphone’s key features can’t be easy. We’ve reached out to Nokia for additional comment on this shift, and will update this story as needed.Related Posts:
If you didn’t get enough mobile news during the week, not to worry, because we’ve opened the firehose for the truly hardcore. This past week, we found new smartphones at Virgin Mobile, Fido and Wind, along with a hefty new round of LTE expansion from AT&T. So buy the ticket and take the ride as we explore the “best of the rest” for this week of November 12th, 2012.
Regardless of how you feel about the concept, Samsung’s Android 4.1-powered Galaxy Camera is finally making its way to the United States. AT&T has just announced it will it launch the curious camera on November 16 (i.e. this Friday), and that it will cost Google-devoted photographers $ 499 — that’s with or without a data plan.
In case you haven’t yet heard of the Galaxy Camera, think of it as a standard point-and-shoot camera with a neat twist — it sports a large 4.8-inch 720p LCD touchscreen that allows users not only frame shots, but also fire up Android apps (ahoy there, Instagram!) and browse the web over Wi-Fi or a wireless data connection.
It’s about time that AT&T came forward with availability — the Galaxy Camera made its first appearance last August at IFA in Berlin, and AT&T announced that it would carry the device early last month. At the time, the carrier found it prudent to keep quiet when it came to price and launch timing, though I have to wonder how many people were actually waiting on the edge of their seats for this thing to hit store shelves.
Last we checked, there are about six days between Verizon / HTC’s press event in New York City and November 19th. Which, by most counts, should be just enough time for the two companies to properly announce a phone, get it out to sales channels, and start moving ‘em into the hands of consumers. HTC’s Droid DNA has been leaked to death at this point, but a new mention of the product on VZW’s ‘Droid Does’ portal all but confirms the true nature of Tuesday’s event. For those willing to wait until November 19th, the carrier’s promising an internet unboxing through its Google+ page — for those who tune into our site, we’ll get you one much sooner. Hit up the source if you’re intrigued by intrigue, but don’t go poking around for pricing or confirmed specifications.
Microsoft recently issued its “Security Bulletin Advance Notification” for this month, detailing which operating systems and software will be updated on November 13th. While many products are being addressed, including Office for Mac, newly released Windows 8 and RT are the most notable entries on the list. The first patches since they hit the market will fix “critical” issues which open them up to “remote code execution.” Microsoft hasn’t gone into specifics (obviously), but you can register for a webcast being held on the 14th (see source link) should you want enlightening. If you thought your fresh machine or slate was flawless, we’re afraid to say it’s just another member of the ‘Patch Tuesday’ club.
If you like your tablets of the Samsung persuasion, AT&T has just promised an abundance of riches. The carrier has confirmed that both the Android-toting Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and the Windows 8-based ATIV Smart PC will reach its stores and LTE network by November 9th at respective contract-free prices of $ 500 and $ 800. Those who spring for the ATIV-badged hardware can deck it out with a $ 49 Stand Dock and a $ 40 VGA adapter, both available in late November, if they’re keen to transform their 11.6-inch slates into tiny desktops. And if you’d really, really like to go all-in with Samsung, there’s a promo running through the holidays that knocks as much as $ 100 off the tablet price if you’re willing to buy a Samsung phone (and the matching two-year contract, naturally) at the same time.
Microsoft’s initial stock of Surface RT devices has sold out in the United States. The 32GB base model, at $ 499, sold out earlier in the week, but all stock has now been depleted with a wait time of within three weeks rather than a guaranteed October 26th delivery. Alongside the sell out, a number of UK readers are reporting that Microsoft has delayed the release of Surface by a week.
“The release date for the preorder product has changed,” reads an email sent to some buyers who pre-ordered a Surface in the UK. “The product listed below will now be available on 02 November 2012.” It’s not clear from Microsoft why the Surface is delayed in the UK, but we understand from sources that it could be due to units being held by UK customs….
