If you’re unconvinced with Nokia N8‘s HD video shooting capabilities, wait till you see this. Nokia showcased a video titled Dot, which is the world’s smallest stop-motion animation character shot on a Nokia N8.
Of course this isn’t the Nokia N8 alone as the fine details were assisted by CellScope technology, which is basically a microscope attached to the device. Put that together with Nokia N8’s 12MP camera and its Carl Zeiss optics, you’ll get a fantastic video.
Watch the video right after the break.
The 9 companies are believed to be:
According to the paper’s source, each player will be getting 20MHz block of 2.5GHz and 2.6GHz spectrum which comprise the 70MHz and 120MHz blocks respectively, or a total of 190MHz.
Awarding 4G LTE to 9 companies is a big number and we wonder based on what merit that the spectrum is given. Looking at WiMAX itself, only half of the awarded operators are in commercial service while U Mobile, the newest mobile telco is still struggling to roll out its own 3G coverage nationwide. With the current scenario, we’re baffled to see them getting LTE spectrum when they can’t get their current 3G or WiMAX service covered properly. According to the report, the spectrum will be given to all so that nobody will be deprived from participating in rolling out 4G LTE. Strangely our very own Telekom Malaysia is not on the list.
Although we love competition, 9 seems to be too much for a country like Malaysia. Just recently Maxis & Celcom had started their own 4G LTE testing with its partners while DiGi says that they will focus on 3G first at the time being. We also wonder, what will happen to the WiMAX operators? Will they abandon WiMAX for LTE in future?

Here’s an official video showcasing the features of the HTC Desire HD along with the new Sense UI and features on the new HTCSense.com cloud computing service.
There’s a lot to like about the Desire HD, like the 4.3in SLCD screen and the latest 1GHz Qualcomm 8255 Snapdragon processor with a dedicated Adreno 205 GPU capable of processing 41 million polygons/sec. There’s also a whopping 768MB of RAM to juggle multiple apps in the OS with.
With Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual sound built-in there’s no denying that the Desire HD is designed to be a media device but we find the omission of HDMI perplexing. Seeing how well executed HDMI out is on the N8, the Desire HD will find it difficult to match Nokia’s performance when it comes to outputting awesome audio and video on the big screen. And also, there’s only 1.5GB of on board storage, if you’re going to be totting lots of media content around, you’ll need more than that. Yes, there’s a MicroSD expansion slot but we’d like at least 8GB on board memory.
HTC is banking on DLNA wireless connectivity to make up for the lack of HDMI, we have our reservations with DLNA having tried it on the Samsung Wave but we’ll save our final judgment when we get review unit of the Desire HD.
Till then, enjoy the video after the jump.
As you would expect, its too early for Samsung to reveal Malaysian pricing and the exact launch date but at least we know that it will be coming this year. And with just three months left in 2010, it’s going to be easy to narrow down the launch date of the Galaxy Tab as more information start to trickle in.
Though HTC can’t confirm a date but we could be looking at a late October or early November launch. And sorry, no price details have been given at the moment.
So let’s see, iPhone 4, BlackBerry Torch, Nokia N8 all coming around the same time — that is late September, early October — and now we have these two powerhouse devices coming roughly a month after that. The smartphone buyer will have a lot to think about when making the purchase a new device. Should you grab on to the early releases or should you wait for all the devices from all the manufacturers to be released?
We’ve said it once, we’ll say it again. The final quarter of 2010 will be a very exciting time indeed.
Apple has just released the iOS 4.2 beta 1 version for developers to poke and prod at but it will still be at least another month until iPad owners can download some of the good stuff that they’ve been missing out on – namely, multi-tasking and folders.
While the full version of iOS 4.2 will be released in November here’s a video overview of some of the new features coming to the iPad.
It’s nothing much, if anything its just an updated version of the recently released iOS 4.1 but 4.2 brings much welcomed enhancements to the iPad. The question is, why is Apple taking so long to release the 4.2 to iPad owners?
November is precariously close to the holiday season, and if the rumour mill is anything to go by, will the 4.2 release pave the way for a new iPad that’s slated for a holiday season release?
We don’t have the answer at the moment but you can be rest assured that we’ll keep a close eye on developments.

Voice search, is something of a hit and miss in these here parts of the world. Though it’s not the voice recognition technology that’s to blame. More often than not its the context of the words that a person uses to search using speech on Google and also there’s a matter of localised names and terms that we use everyday in our searches.
So although being able to search the web hands-free is a boon, the inconvenience of having to repeat yourself a number of times to get the search term right is not. But that’s not saying that Google Voice Search is completely useless, and to illustrate how useful searching using just your voice can be Google has just released a series of short videos on its official Google Mobile YouTube channel. It’s also kind of cool that the videos are interactive.
Yeah, it’s all very Americanised but we have to say that Google’s voice recognition technology is pretty accurate even with non-American or British speaking tongues like us here in Malaysia.
Having said that however, we’d like to see Google attempt things a bit more localised considering that it has offices all over the world and not only Americans use Google search.
So what do you say Google, how about a Malaysian version of these Search by Voice short videos of yours?
