IPAD 3

The new iPad, the iPad 3, the new iPad 3… call it what you want, but it’s a device that from the outside looks remarkably like the iPad 2 but with an overhaul on the innards.
The question most people ask us when it comes to the new iPad is: what’s different from the old one?
Well, in this case it’s pretty easy: there’s a Retina Display that makes everything looks superbly crisp, an updated A5X processor bringing quad-core graphics and a 5MP camera on the rear with a VGA sensor on the front.
Oh, and the iPad 3 is also the device that brings iOS 5.1 to the masses.

Retina Display

Before we get onto all the normal insight over the frame of the new iPad, it’s worth talking about the main feature: the Retina Display.

Apple has packed a huge amount more pixels into the 9.7-inch screen – 1536 x 2048 to be exact. However, despite the fact that the Cupertino brand makes a big thing about the 330 PPI density of the iPhone 4, we’re looking at a screen that’s technically a lot less sharp than its smartphone brethren – around 264PPI.

Key features

  • 9.7″ LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen, 2048 x 1536 pixels; scratch-resistant, oleophobic coating
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, carrier-dependent hotspot support

  • 16/32/64GB of inbuilt storage
  • Weight of 652 grams (662 grams for the LTE version)
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 11,560 mAh battery
  • Accelerometer, compass and three-axis gyro-sensor
  • Compatible with every iPad and iPhone app without any modifications
  • The cheapest version costs less than a SIM-free iPhone

  • VGA secondary camera capable of FaceTime calls

IPHONE 4S

The wait for the most anticipated gadget of the year is finally over. While all were hoping for the IPhone 5,the Apple called it as IPHONE 4S and  looks a lot like the iPhone 4, but at least it comes in white right off the bat.

 

It also has some other nice features that the iPhone 4– namely Siri and a beefed up camera. And of course it will launch with Apple’s new operating system iOS 5.The most significant part of today’s iPhone news, however, is that the device is coming to Sprint (in addition to AT&T and Verizon). This should be huge for both Sprint and Apple.

Let’s have a look at its features….

SIRI

It’s the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done.All you have to do is ask…..

Now you can use your voice to use your iPhone. Just talk to Siri as you would to a person: “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Any great burgers around here?” or “Where’s the closest ATM?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean.So when you say “Ant great burgers around here?” then SIRI will reply “I found a number of burger restaurants near you”.Then you can say “How about tacos?” .Siri remembers that you’ve just asked about restaurants so it will show all the Mexican restaurants near your place.

 

It heilps you do the things you do everyday.Ask Siri to text you dad,remind you to call the dentist ,find directions and it will figure out which apps to use and what you are talking about.From your contacts Siri will know your friends,boss,family members and co-workers.So you can tell Siri things like “Text Ryan I’m on the way”  and it exactly  knows what you mean and what to do.

IPHONE 4S takes dictation. Just your voice.Instead of typing,tap the microphone icon on your keyboard.Then say what you want to say and iphone listens.Tap done and iphone converts your words to text.You  can use dictation to write notes,messages,search the web and more….

 

Then, just like a personal assistant Siri makes phone calls, sends messages, schedules meetings, sets reminders, and more. How much more? Just ask, and Siri tells you that, too.

DUAL CORE A5 PROCESSOR

It sports a speedy A5 dual core processor ,which runs 2x as fast as the A4 processor  which is present in the present in the present iPhone 4.Two cores in the A5 chip deliver up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics.And you’ll feel the effects. Fast. iPhone 4S is quick and responsive, which makes all the difference when you’re launching apps, browsing the web, gaming, and doing just about everything. And no matter what you’re doing, you can keep on doing it. Because the A5 chip is so power-efficient, iPhone 4S has outstanding battery life.


CAMERA

With 8 megapixels and all-new optics,this just might be the best camera ever on a mobile phone.  Perhaps the biggest improvement in iPhone 4S over iPhone 5 is its rear camera.As Apple is taking aim at upending the point-and-shoot camera market,they upgraded the built-in camera to 8 megapixels(from 5mp).But that’s just the tip of the ice-berg.The new camera supports true 1080p HD video(at 3ofps),and even has real-time image stabilization and temporal noise reduction for improving video quality.With new face detection the camera is smart enough to know whether your taking a portrait or a group shot.

Retina display

The sharpest, most vibrant thing you’ll see on iPhone 4S is everything. The Retina display is the highest-resolution phone screen ever. In fact, the pixel density is so high that the human eye is unable to distinguish individual pixels. But without a doubt, you’ll notice crisp text, sharp graphics, and stunning images. It’s more remarkable than the printed page. And you’ll be completely absorbed.

  Icloud

You never know when you’ll suddenly be in the mood to listen to a favorite song or rewatch that hilarious sitcom episode. With iCloud, you can have iTunes automatically download new music purchases to all your devices the moment you tap Buy. You can also access past music and TV show purchases from any of your devices — wirelessly and without syncing. You can create amazing documents and presentations on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. And now with iCloud, you can keep your work up to date across all your iOS devices. You don’t have to save your work or transfer any files. Your documents — with all your latest edits — automatically appear everywhere. Buy a new book from the iBookstore, and iCloud makes sure it appears everywhere — your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Create or edit a doc and it will be upto date on all your iOS devices.

FACE TIME

FaceTime lets you hear a voice and see the face that goes with it — iPhone to iPhone, iPad 2, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi.5 So no matter where they are, no matter where you are, you’ll always be there. Making a FaceTime call is just as easy as making a phone call. And it’s even easier with Siri. Just tell Siri “FaceTime with Mom” and you show up, smile, and wave hello.

 

AIR PRINT

Print your email, photos, web pages, and documents right from your iPhone over Wi-Fi.There’s no software to download, no drivers to install, and no cables to connect.  AirPrint printing is 100 percent wireless. iPhone automatically locates and connects to AirPrint-enabled printers on your Wi-Fi network. So whether you’re on the other side of the room or the other side of the house, you can print what you need, when you need it.With just a few taps, you can go from viewing something on the iPhone screen to holding a printed copy.

AIR PLAY

With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream what’s on your iPhone to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV. And with AirPlay Mirroring, whatever you see and do on your iPhone appears on your HDTV at the same time. AirPlay Mirroring lets you share exactly what’s on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4S with everyone in the room. Stream web pages, spreadsheets, lessons, games, photos, videos, and more to your HDTV via Apple TV. Just double-click the Home button, swipe all the way to the right, and select AirPlay Mirroring.

iPhone: MADE IN CHINA

“God made the world and the rest of all are made in china” – Anonymous

Since 1980, China has become the world’s largest manufacturing resource and potential market. According to an official report, there are nearly 42 million Chinese suppliers exporting their goods to the rest of the world.

Now coming to the point…

Due to their cheap rates china mobiles (especially) are having a wide range of market all across the world. We get duplicates of all the famous gadgets of the world from china. Now here this article may help you in finding the differences between original gadget and its shanzhai (duplicate).

Let’s start with the new crazy iPhone4…

From the above figure we really can’t find iPhone from its shanzai. But with few observations we can find out the dupe… but left one is Chinese iPhone and right one is The iPhone…

By the external looks we can find real and shanzai iPhone. On the back of Chinese iPhone there will be no scribbling. It will be literally plain but original iPhone consists of some information about it as shown.

Here we can simply identify the real and dupe. But if they have overcome this limitation also, then…

Most of the shanzhai’s can be easily found by simply switching on. Start-up tone itself reveals its true identity in most of the cases. And if it you still can’t judge, then we can find out by checking its functioning. There cannot be any competition from any dupe to the Media core processor supplied by MediaTek that never went past 460MHz; but the GPhone version T6 is a breath of shock. It is well crafted and replicates the much desired iPhone 4 in looks, plus it has performance of a powerful Qualcomm processor which really competes with iPhone.

Above is the new GPhone version T6

If the above conditions fail then next chance is that the iPhone 4, the GT6 doesn’t support 4G but it supports both 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.

And there are some other like…

The complete specs list is not out yet, but there’s definitely a multi touch capacitive display, mini SIM card slot, 3.5mm headphone port, and microphone port. 

Like its original counterpart, it has dual camera—5MP rear camera with LED flash and a video camera on the front

These are some of the precautions those can be made to identify an iPhone and its shanzhai…
