Nokia N9 world’s first pure touch screen phone without any front-facing buttons


Nokia introduced the Nokia N9, the first-ever pure touch smartphone that is all about making things simpler. Nokia N9 focuses on the most important things that people do: use apps, get notifications and switch between different activities. Navigating the UI is done with a simple gesture, a swipe of a finger. Let’s have a closer look at what the Nokia N9 is bringing to the game.

NO BUTTONS

The Nokia N9 is the world’s first pure touch screen phone without any front-facing buttons at all. You unlock the phone by just double-tapping the screen.
 POWERFUL CAMERA
The 8MP auto focus camera with Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash and super wide 28mm lens works faster from start to capture than any other manufacturer’s smartphone camera in the market. HD video and true 16:9 resolution photos are supported. You can share your photos via MMS, email, NFC and many online services including Flickr and Facebook.

FAST WEB BROWSER

The fast web browser is built on the latest Webkit 2 technology. Even while loading a web page, the screen remains responsive. You can have several browser windows open in the open applications view and switching between them is, again, fast and easy. Favourite websites are shown as visual thumbnails, supported by a full browsing history. Wide HTML5 support offers access to rich web applications and fast video playback.

LATEST MAPS

The Nokia N9 has the latest Nokia Maps with free, voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation for walking and driving. There is also a dedicated Drive app for in-car navigation, which lets you start navigating to your destination instantly after entering your destination. Public transport routing in 85 cities means you can find the quickest route on foot or by tram, metro or train. You can also discover nearby places with caf├ęs, shops, hotels and more, all marked along the way.
You can find the product specifications in the data sheet.

Apple iPad 2 has debuted “Now,” a new 30-second television commercial



iPad is now changing the way we do just about everything, from watching a newspaper to looking at the stars.

Apple recently posted a new iPad 2 TV ad called “Now” that continues to emphasize on the user ‘experience’ rather than tech specs. The ad showcases how iPad users use their device to read newspapers, magazines, watch movies and even video call using FaceTime. It further goes on to mention the use of iPads in classroom, reading eBooks and using apps.

Now, we can watch a newspaper; listen to a magazine; curl up with a movie; and see a phone call.

Now, we can take a classroom anywhere; hold an entire bookstore; and touch the stars.

Because now, there’s this.
