SteadyCam Pro provides real-time image stabilization for videos captured with an iPhone 4SteadyCam Pro provides real-time image stabilization for videos captured with an iPhone 4

The video capture capabilities found in today’s mobile phones has made it easier than ever to record those priceless memories whenever and wherever they may occur. However, one of the downsides to cramming a video camera into such a small device is the lack of stability that often results in videos that look like they were shot the morning after a big night.

With a full-blown steadycam rig probably not the best solution for smoothing out things on the go, Midnox has created an app that provides real-time image stabilization for the iPhone 4.

A New Smartphones’ Application from Tawkon Measures Exposed Radiation

08/09/2010 Comments off

Israeli start-up firm Tawkon has developed a new software that measures mobile telephone handset radiation. The goal is to help users reduce exposure to emissions without giving up their phones.

Tawkon’s (pronounced talk-on) application is already available for Research In Motion‘s BlackBerry handsets and will be launched for Google‘s Android-based phones and Nokia‘s Symbian later this year.

“We are the first solution that can be downloaded to a phone,” Tawkon co-founder and CEO Gil Friedlander told Reuters.

Until now radiation emissions were measured with an external device. In many countries handset manufacturers must disclose the maximum level of radiation emitted and similar legislation is starting to appear in the United States.

The application monitors the phone user and if radiation levels reach a certain threshold called the “red zone” an alert is emitted along with suggestions to minimize exposure.

Nokia launches E7 smartphone next week

Well, it looks like the mystery of Nokia‘s Symbian^3 slider may soon be solved. Reuters is reporting that Nokia will introduce its new E7 smartphone at its Nokia World event in London next week, and that the device will pack both a “large” touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard.

That’s further backed up by the existence of an XML file on Nokia’s own site, which seemingly confirms that the E7 does indeed run Symbian^3, and that it boasts a 640 x 360 display along with that QWERTY keyboard. Not much more than that at the moment, but those previous leaks suggest that we’re basically looking at a slider version of the Nokia N8.

How green is Apple’s iPhone 4?

31/08/2010 Comments off

Apple has officially launched its new iPhone 4, which definitely covers the aspects most iPhone 3G and 3GS users were looking for. It features a better display, better software and much better technical specs. However, we expected the new device to house several green features, which were missing from earlier models. Though there were some third-party apps that let you do everything from managing your home energy use to controlling your car’s fuel appetite.

The new iPhone

Going through some of the technical specifications, the new iPhone is just 9.3 mm thick, which is 25 percent slim than the 3GS, and includes a 5MP primary camera and a VGA second on the front for video calling. The iPhone 4 is powered by Apple A4 processor, which replaces the 600MHz Cortex-A8 architecture processor in the 3GS. Unlike the 3GS, the iPhone 4 supports Micro SIM. The display size on the both the 3GS and the 4 is the same, but the iPhone 4 has an IPS panel with a resolution of 960 X 640 pixels. The new iPhone is also 2 grams heavier than the 3GS.

The Battery

The iPhone 4 has a much larger battery that provides up to 7 hours of talktime on 3G and 14 hours of 2G, which means about 2 more hours of talktime on both fronts when compared to the 3GS. The larger battery means that users won’t have to plug in their device more often reducing their energy consumption.

Energy Saving Sensors

The iPhone 4 also comes with a proximity sensor that immediately turns off the display to save power. Moreover, the device also includes an ambient light sensor that intelligently adjusts the brightness of the screen for optimal viewing and increasing the battery life.

Green Claims

Apple claims that the iPhone 4 embodies the company’s continuing environmental progress as the handset, headphones and the supplied USB cable have been made from PVC-free materials. Moreover, the device includes bromine-free PCBs, mercury-free LCD display and arsenic-free display glass. The packing has also been made from post-consumer recycled fiberboard and bio-based materials. The power adapter supplied with the device also outperforms strictest global energy efficiency standards. The iPhone 4 also tries to encourage users to stop reading newspapers and catch the news in electronic form on the phone’s “Retinal Display”.

My Two Cents

The iPhone 4 is definitely much greener than its predecessors, but considering the improvements in display and the ability of the phone to multi-task might drain the iPhone 4’s larger battery claims. Yet, it is a good step in the direction of sustainable smartphones that we may be looking for the future.
