Qualcomm and Project Ray developing eye-free smartphone for visually impaired people

by: AdrianOctober 23, 2012
Although we like to say that technology has advanced to the point that it is now accessible to all people, regardless of race, gender, social or health status, the fact of the matter is that there are still some that can’t use a mobile phone to its full potential.

Low batt? Try charging from your shirt!

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 8, 2012

Researchers from the University of South Carolina have been able to convert a regular, store-bought shirt into a capacitor, which means that the very clothes we wear could, someday, power the myriad of devices we use in our everyday lives.

While wearable devices are currently iffy at best, we do carry a handful of devices on our person, including our smartphones, personal music players, and to some extent, tablets. Noting that electronics are fast becoming part of our wardrobe, a team led by the USC’s Xiaodong Li and Lihong Bao are experimenting on ways how fabric can act as flexible energy sources for devices.

One day our cotton T-shirts could have more [...]

STMicroelectronics buys out bTendo, plans to jumpstart the Android projector phones revolution

by: AdrianAugust 7, 2012

Although Samsung has finally managed to get the Galaxy Beam out in several markets worldwide after having some mysterious production issues, the Android projector-phones revolution which we predicted more than a year ago hasn’t quite started.

The initial level of interest surrounding the Beam, the first commercial Android phone with a built-in pico-projector, hasn’t been very encouraging for the nascent niche, which might have quashed the enthusiasm of some tech lovers.

We, however, never stopped hoping for some rapid evolution in the area, and it seems that our hopes were not in vain. STMicroelectronics, a Swiss-based multinational electronics manufacturer, [...]

Want an Android-powered microwave oven? Here’s MAID!

by: AdrianAugust 7, 2012

Android has surely gone a long way since its 2007 inception, now powering more smartphones and tablets than ever, but the mobile OS’ expansion might well go beyond what anyone over at Google imagined a few years back.

It might not come as a surprise to many when hearing that Android-powered TVs were in pre-production, but we have to admit we never thought we would see the day when household appliances will be powered by Google’s operating system.

Well, as hard as it might be to picture, a little Indian company called SectorQube has unveiled an Android-powered microwave oven, going by the name of MAID. Technical details about the pioneering device are still a bit [...]

Bloomberg: Facebook and HTC working together on a new smartphone, to debut in mid-2013

by: AdrianJuly 26, 2012

We’ve been hearing rumors about Facebook’s supposed grand mobile plans for quite some time, but until now, they had but a whiff of credibility. The last one in particular, coming from the New York Times, sounded extremely far-fetched, stating that Facebook was considering building a smartphone from scratch, both in terms of hardware and software.

A new report seems to set the record straight about Facebook’s bold, but sane plans of getting in the smartphone business. According to Bloomberg, Mark Zuckerberg’s company is currently working on a phone with deep integration of Facebook features, but they have sought help from their old partners at HTC.

FB and HTC [...]

Report: First Samsung flexible displays to enter production this quarter without actually being flexible

by: AdrianJuly 22, 2012

Although they always kind of seemed like a very distant technology to actually become reality, flexible displays are, by all means and purposes, inching ever closer to their release. The rumors and reports about Samsung’s Youm foldable screens have piled up over the last few months, and another pretty trustworthy source now tells us that these panels could enter production as soon as this quarter.

Yep, you heard it right, this quarter, as in by the end of September, which is pretty crazy, considering that most of us thought that the technology had at least one more year before being ready for the wide public. However, there is a pretty [...]

Samsung Galaxy S smartphone displays go head to head, S3 panel unsurprisingly comes out on top

by: AdrianJuly 18, 2012

There has been much debate around exactly what improvements Samsung has brought to the table with the Galaxy S3 over the S2 and a big part of that discussion has concentrated on the two smartphones’ displays.

While many users have agreed that the S3’s screen is a natural evolution from the S2’s panel, there have been more than a fistful of critics disagreeing with that opinion, which has led to Samsung officials issuing statements defending the new display.

Naturally, that hasn’t completely calmed the criticism “storm”, but maybe DisplayMate’s most recent in-depth analysis will manage to do just that. According to what looks like a [...]

New rumors: iPad Mini to sport 7.85-inch Sharp IGZO display and cost $249-299

by: AdrianJuly 4, 2012

Although we here at Android Authority are first and foremost preoccupied with bringing you all the news that matter regarding Android devices, we like to keep an open mind and have a perspective on the technology world as a whole. That’s why we’re also interested in what Apple will be coming up with in the near future to face the growing competition and great progress of Android.

The newly released Nexus 7 tablet, but also the upcoming Kindle Fire 2 device(s), are widely seen as the primary gadgets that can cripple the new iPad’s sales, which, according to some reports, are not that great. This already complicated “equation” will, however, most likely get even more [...]
