Android to expand to digicams with Nikon Coolpix S800

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 8, 2012

I’ve always thought that cameras in mobile phones are an interesting evolution. But what if it were the other way around: mobile phone features in cameras? It seems digital cameras are already mutating into mobile phones, too. Or at least with Nikon using Android to power their upcoming Coolpix S800, the platform is starting to go beyond smartphones and tablets.

Android has actually made an appearance in some cameras like the Polaroid SC1630 announced at CES this year. However, Nikon may be the first to market with such a consumer device.

In a regulatory filing in Indonesia, Nikon has registered what may be named the Coolpix S800 or S800C, which is [...]

Android smartphone set for space launch with STRaND-1

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 6, 2012

However, the new and amazing Boeing 787 Dreamliner has found its way into our daily coverage thanks to one of the most impressive Android-based entertainment systems we’ve ever feasted our eyes upon.

Although Boeing has announced that the number of 787 orders has ramped up to 859, only 14 planes have been shipped thus far. One of them, belonging to Qatar Airways, was recently showcased at the Farnborough International Airshow in the UK , and [...]

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 19, 2012

We all, well at least, everyone who drives, have felt that second of irrational panic when the “engine fault” light on the dashboard suddenly lights up. It is, of course, recommended that you drop your car off at a service station as soon as possible, as in most cases you have no way to know where exactly the fault lies. Until now. With the Torque app for Android, checking fault codes is just one of the MANY things you can do.

How it works?

Apart from the application, you will need an OBD2 Bluetooth adapter which plugs into your car’s diagnostics socket. The OBD2 standard (On-Board Diagnostics) is found in most cars manufactured after 2000, [...]
