Pre-Order Fusion Garage Grid 10 tablet

The Fusion Garage Grid 10 tablet is expected on 15 September ship, but it already AOS for pre-order from the fusion garage site or from Amazon.com. The 10-inch tablet has a starting price of $ 499 for a WiFi-only model or $ 599 for a model with WiFi and 3G.

The Grid is an unusual tablet 10 with an operating system called GridOS that AOS is to Android, A-based fusion garage but to AOS not just another skin version of Android (even if it runs Android apps). Instead GridOS has a unique home screen and app launcher allows you to organize all your applications on an infinite screen, scroll through the apps that you can find.

Fusion Garage offers editing and custom applications for e-mail, media playback, Web browsing and Office documents.

The tablet has a 1366 x 768 pixel display, which you can find a few more pixels than you, Äôll in most 10-inch tablet runs Google Android Honeycomb, but it's the same NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor than competitive tablets from Samsung, Motorola, Acer, Asus and Lenovo.

While it is AOS, see interesting for a company with an innovative approach to the tablet space, there are a few reasons to be skeptical. First, fusion garage of the same company that brought us the unfortunate JooJoo. Second, the grid is 10 the most expensive 2-based Tegra for tablets. And thirdly, it seems that Android or tablets without IOS operating systems are perhaps not as popular with consumers.


Acer Iconia Tab A500 with Android 3.2 coming on August 25th

The Acer Iconia Tab A100 7 Inch Tablet Android may be shipping with the Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system, but what is with Acer's 10-inch tablet? It looks like those who will pick up the tab Iconia A500 have to wait a couple of weeks. Acer is expected to start pushing out a software update for the tablet from 25 August.

Frankly, users will likely notice much difference between Android 3.1 and Android 3.2 on a 10-inch tablet. One of the most important features in the latest version of the mobile operating system from Google's system is the support for devices with smaller, lower resolution displays, such as the A100 tablet. But there is one good reason to look forward to this update: Android 3.2 offers better support for tablet applications developed for Android.

Honeycomb tablets have been shipping in February, but there are still only a few hundred applications specially developed for Android tablets. There are hundreds of thousands of apps for Android smartphones written though. While most of these applications can be scaled to fit on larger displays, some look funny on a 10-inch tablet.

Android 3.2 avoids this problem by effectively you can emulate a lower screen resolution on a honeycomb tablet, so that applications that otherwise would not fill the whole screen now.

The 25th August date comes from Acer Malaysian Facebook page. I'm having a hard time believing Acer push out the software update is first in Malaysia, so I guess we will see a global roll-out to on or about the date.


LG P220 thin-light laptop hits Korea this month

A 12.5-inch laptop with a super slim frame? Why Samsung's newly released Samsung Series 3 laptop right? Long before that, the LG P220, which debuted back at CES earlier this year. The LG P220 had a 12.5-inch 1366 x 768 Display IPS touting quality with a super slim frame, Intel Core processors, a Chiclet keyboard, trackpad flush, weight, tipping in at under three pounds / 1.3 kg with a thickness of only 0.82 inches / 20.9 mm. It is touted as a 12.5-inch model, but in a 11.6-inch form factor.

There are several real-life photographs of the LG P220 at imidoresc.

The laptop will start over in Korea this month and subsequently on somewhere in Europe. No word on pricing. It is available in several colors - white, pink and blue.

Some additional specs on the LG P220 - it has a second-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Intel GMA graphics, 2 / 4 GB DDR3 RAM, 250/320 7mm HDD, a 1.3 MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, an RJ45 port, Bluetooth 3.0 + HS, HD Audio, DLNA support, a USB 2.0 port, HDMI output and a 4-in-1 card reader. The battery life is rated about 5.5 hours.


Is Google+ Putting Facebook On The Defensive?

If it is not obvious yet, Google+ is being "beaten" Facebook capable when it comes to game development platform and transactions. Instead of a 30% cut of all Farmville seeds (or buy what ever the people), Google will be able to take a smaller percentage for themselves. You can even do anything. And when it comes to the "monetization" of G + is the "Site" Google trumps against Facebook is that we may never even see an ad on G +. Google has a lot to show, without ever placed an ad and easy to win, Google does not need the money. Facebook has to know this, and it must have just a little worried.

This week, the WSJ reported that FB is testing a "real time" feed (in contrast to current standard-Facebook "Top News" over-algorithm). Presumably, the new feed would become the new standard for users. Although I would like to believe Facebook has listened to me when I critique their top news algorithm, what really moves hand Facebook here (after the WSJ) are complaints from advertisers and app developers. It seems that the "Top News" is the killing power of virality of the advertisers 'content' and applications that try to find new members.

If it is true that FB is considering these changes because of complaints developers and advertisers, this is a real bad sign for FB. Facebook has made some defensive movements since the introduction of the G +, which in itself is unusual for them. But this is the first sign that they can complain to third parties kowtow. (Hey, is the IPO coming ... competition is tougher, it has to happen, right?) Decision by the concern that third party does not inform automatically be fatal, of course. But Facebook is so damn well think so long because of their refusal, IPO, their refusal to go beyond the short term, and their refusal, a party needs to overshadow the general health of the service. The difficult thing for Facebook, is that the bigger you get and the more you have to consider competing interests, the more difficult it will become your choice.

FB anger may seem like a positive for G + appear, but it is not so simple. It is almost certain that Google will launch a platform (and not just a gaming platform), but how they do this is crucial. We do not want a repeat of the Facebook-cycle, where FB of the world promised to developers, gave them a free hand to build the hype, then cut their marketing channels and destroyed their shops (an oversimplification, yes, but read this harrowing story of Paul Allen), then G + must carefully balance the needs of developers with the health of the entire community.

Of that I can say, are the brains of G + aware the delicate balance that is needed here. Although they are the way they have done, gaffed, Google displays business accounts, the decision block that understands they need a real Google map here. Frankly, I'm surprised that no "normal users" have to say, they do not want to talk to G + brands. Maybe that's just because 80% of active users in the G + work "internet industry" (at least according to my unscientific survey), and thus a bit too, can win by "Company" in the service. Would the "normal user" so happy? As Matt Hogan argues, it may not be the best idea to companies in and muck about to discover the place at the very beginning.

That is what we see here is a general development of brand interaction with the user to the point that confidence of users that it is "working" just may (like Twitter, where you can follow manufacturers, but they can not really bug you).

Because of poor planning on my part, the regular user / business relationship on MySpace was not quite right. Company wanted to be able to walk around and add people on MySpace, and it was hard to tell them "no" because they are so MySpace has developed over time. Facebook was smart, it's impossible to add "pages" People & commentary for the first few years. But she recently reversed this decision. Whether that turns out to be a good thing remains to be seen. (It is easier to make a step for Facebook now if the "true" user base is already established, and Facebook has years of refinement anti-spam algorithms on the clock.)

But whatever the case, both Google and Facebook, some difficult decisions ahead of you: how do they balance what is best for the regular guy (you & me) to spend, advertisers (big brands), small, local companies (the never be able to afford the large), platform developers with non-competing services (games and music, it seems, FB will not get into) and platform developers with potentially competitive services (like business networking and dating, the FB / G + may want to get yourself one day).

In the long term (5-10 years), the company that the right decisions in these areas make only win in the end.
