What’s been happening on the World Wide Web? Here we take a look at some of the subjects that have been cropping up across the internet recently, going over the things that have been generating the most chatter online. So what have you all been talking about of late?
Still well up in the search term rankings is Nokia’s powerful camera phone, which takes mobile photography to another level with its 41 megapixel sensor. The Finnish firm, recently purchased by Microsoft, has launched several high-end handsets this year, including another excellent camera phone in the shape of the Lumia 925.
What the future holds for Nokia remains to be seen, but there’s little doubt that mobile photography is one of its strongest points and it will be interesting to see how this is developed under the tutelage of it its new owners.
HTC has grabbed many headlines this week with the unveiling of the HTC One max phablet, a device which looks set to go up against the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Amongst the handset’s innovations is the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner on the backplate, adding an extra level of security for users.
We’ve already had some hands on time with the device to get a feel for how it works, so take a look at the video above and see what you think. We’ll be doing a full review of the handset soon.
The world’s most popular smartphone platform is rarely out of the news in one way or another, with there still being much excitement around the upcoming KitKat iteration of the software.
We imagine we may get a good look at it very soon, as it likely to emerge on the Nexus 5, a device which is expected to launch next week.
Back to HTC, and the more technical points of its One max phablet, which makes use of the Snapdragon 600 chipset. This includes a quad-core, 1.7GHz CPU, offering a very powerful vehicle for processor-intensive tasks such as rendering graphics in 3D games.
Many tech sites had labelled the One max as being likely to include the Snapdragon 800 chipset instead, an even faster version of the hardware that appears on the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. However, having tried the device we can tell you that you won’t be disappointed with its performance and power at all.
A name from the internet of years past, MySpace has once again been cropping up in the mass of online excitement, following on from its revamp earlier this year. Having long been thought of as a good vehicle for musicians to promote their wares, the new version of the social network, bankrolled by Justin Timberlake, has been redesigned to put music and artists first.
The service has now also made the shift to mobile, with an app available for iOS, although it doesn’t seem to have yet moved on to other platforms such as Android and Windows Phone.
