HTC Butterfly 5-inch Android Phone Launched in India – Specs, Pricing   The 5-inch Flagship Android phone from HTC which has got different names in the International market was first named the HTC J Butterfly and it was first seen in Japan, and then the company came up with the HTC Droid DNA for the US market through the Verizon network before unveiling the HTC Deluxe in the International market (which was still in the rumors), but in India it has got the name HTC Butterfly, and it comes with a pricing of Rs. 45990 which is a pretty high pricing when compared to the other high-end devices in the current market of Android devices. The HTC Butterfly has got a 5-inch Full HD screen with the 1080p resolution at 1920 x 1080 pixels. The whooping 5-inch screen provides the maximum resolution with the best graphics and color output and this was one of the first 1080p devices to come out in the market, now competing the Sony Xperia Z, the Oppo Find 5 and the other 1080p
BlackBerry Z10. Is It Too Late?   One cannot overstate the importance of this phone. This, the BlackBerry Z10, is the device upon which the fate of BlackBerry ( formerly Research in Motion) hangs. That's not to say that the company will disappear if the Z10 -- and the BlackBerry 10 OS that it contains -- is not a mass-market success. But if this phone does not do its job of extending the reach of the 'Berry OS beyond those die-hard loyalists who have clung on to their Bolds and Torches and Storms , it's safe to say that BlackBerry is in for some very hard times. The company hasn't exactly bet the proverbial farm on this BB10 release, but with massive financial losses tempered only by job cuts , plus an absolutely tectonic shift among the executive leadership and corporate culture architected by CEO and President Thorsten Heins , the phrase "make or break" feels pretty apt. So, then, is this the phone that's good enough to woo buyers away
Pen Sized Scanner turns you into James Bond  Hammacher Schlemmer has long and storied history of offering up the odd, expensive, and awesome for gadget fans to purchase. The latest product that the company has looks like something right out of a James Bond movie. The product is called The Pen Sized Scanner. The device is actually a ballpoint pen but it also has an integrated camera that can scan documents. Inside the top of the pen is a high-precision autofocus lens and a five-megapixel sensor. Using the scanner camera you can scan letters, recipes, or any other document. The scanning is actually more like simply taking a picture of a document in 2048 x 1536 resolution. When the shutter button is pressed halfway down, the pen will throw the red outline around what you’re trying to take an image of that you see in the photograph above. That allows you to be sure that you are getting the entire document you want to scan. The pen has 1 GB of storage promising to h
ZTE to launch its own Firefox OS phone at MWC 2013 ZTE's plans for this year's Mobile World Congress just got a little more interesting. While we've already taken a look at the huge Grand Memo in action, the Chinese maker's invite suggests that there will be another "major new mobile device" to show us, throwing in a 'ZTEMozilla' hashtag for good measure.  We knew that Mozilla and ZTE have been holding hands for a while , and this serves to confirm mutterings that we'd see some Firefox OS hardware early this year -- although there's no hint of that mysterious European carrier just yet. Hold on, Barcelona. We're coming.

Exclusive: Samsung Galaxy S4 To Launch at the end Of April

We have been hearing a number of rumors about Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 over the last few weeks, and now we have received some information on a possible launch date for the device from one of our sources. According to the information we have received Samsung will be launching their Galaxy S4 smartphone some time between the 15th of April and the 22nd of April, the details have come from a source close to a major UK retailer.

Samsung fined $1,000 over fatal gas leak, according to Yonhap News

Korea's Yonhap News Agency is reporting that Samsung will be fined a nominal 1 million won (roughly $1,000) for not reporting its recent gas leak quickly enough. The incident led to the death of a maintenance contractor who was brought in to fix a pipe leaking hydrofluoric gas at one of Samsung's semiconductor plants. Police are said to be imposing the fine on both Samsung and its subcontractor for violating a law stipulating that such chemical leaks must be "promptly" reported to the authorities. It appears no official alert was given until the contractor died in hospital. Police say they're continuing to investigate how the fatal accident happened, and that it's clear "someone died due to poor administration," so this isn't the end of the matter -- a fuller report is expected within two weeks.

Sony upgrades Music Unlimited to 320Kbps streaming on Android and PS

Higher quality audio is a staple of the experience for a growing number of streaming music services, most notably Spotify . Sony won't let itself become the exception to the rule: Music Unlimited now has an option for a much more detailed 320Kbps bitrate. The quality upgrade is staggered and is initially active on Android devices, the PlayStation 3 and the web player, while desktops, iOS , the PlayStation Vita and home theater gear will get improved tunes later on in the year. Music Unlimited won't appease those who want a consistent experience in the near term, then -- still, it might be enough for listeners whose Xperia serves as a primary jukebox . Press Release- 320kbps AAC Streaming Playback Now Available for PlayStation 3, Android Smartphones and Tablets, and PCs FOSTER CITY, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 -- Sony Network Entertainment International today announced that the company's Music Unlimited service now offers users the ability to listen
