HTC One M8 Ace leaks online

April 9th, 2014 | Posted by mobmshare in Special - (0 Comments)

The HTC One (M8) was just announced a few weeks ago, but today we’re seeing what looks like the first of several M8 variants HTC has planned for the rest of 2014. A blurry photo of the device, allegedly called the HTC One (M8) Ace, was posted online earlier today by @evleaks, who has a solid track record when it comes to leaking new devices. Soon afterward a second picture of the same phone from HTC tipster @HTCFamily_RUappeared, this time without the blurred screen and clearly running Sense 6 software.

HTC One M8 Ace Leak HTC One M8 Ace leaks online

Unfortunately, today’s photo doesn’t tell us much of anything about the M8 Ace. The device apparently comes in red and boasts extremely thin bezels. It also appears to feature massive speaker grilles along the entire top on bottom of the front panel, though that could just be the poor image quality we’re seeing.

Last month when HTC announced the One (M8), @evleaks hinted that the company was also planning an M8 Mini and M8 Ace. Based on that lineup we’d guess the Ace is probably a super-sized version of the flagship phone, similar to last year’s HTC One Max. It could also be a cheaper full-sized version of the M8 or something else entirely. There’s no way to know for now, though hopefully HTC will make another announcement soon.

Good news for Windows Phone fans, as Microsoft has reportedly shipped the next version of the operating system to handset manufacturers. This means that, assuming that tests are successful, we should have the first devices powered by Windows Phone 8.1 as early as next month.

It seems that Windows Phone 8.1 is finally ready to roll, and we may even have a target date for when we can expect to see it rolling out on new phones.

samsung ativ se leak Windows Phone 8.1 Devices Launching April 23, Says Report

According to a report from WP Central, Microsoft delivered the final version of Windows Phone 8.1 to its manufacturing partners on March 26. Following up on that nugget of information, the report also revealed that it appears the first phones to launch with the new version of the operating system will be ready to hit stores on April 23.

What isn’t clear at this time is which phones will be available come April 23, but the Samsung ATIV SE seems a likely candidate considering how many leaks we have seen for it. Nokia also has a presentation scheduled for this week and the Lumia 630 and Lumia 930 are said to be on deck and ready to launch.

With Microsoft’s Build conference kicking off this week, it seems like the perfect time to make all of this news official, so expect a lot of Windows Phone announcements over the next several days.

No matter which mobile operating system you use it’s bound to crash every once and a while, but as smartphones and their software continue to improve crashes have become less frequent. A new study from performance monitoring company Crittercism breaks down how often different version of Android and iOS crash, revealing that Google’s OS is actually a lot more stable than Apple’s.

apple vs android toy vs fruit Android KitKat Crashes Way Less Than iOS 7.1, Study Claims

Android Gingerbread is apparently the most likely version of the OS to crash at 1.7 percent, while more recent versions of the software including Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean and KitKat all come in at a crash rate of just 0.7 percent. By comparison, iOS 7.1, Apple’s most recent mobile update, has a crash rate of 1.6 percent. Earlier versions are significantly higher, according to Crittercism, which puts iOS 7 at 2.1 percent and iOS 6 at 2.5 percent. The study also claims the iPhone 5 is Apple’s most stable smartphone, while Samsung devices are less likely to crash than other Android phones.

Based on Crittercism’s report, the latest version of iOS 7 is just barely more stable than an Android iteration that hit the market over three years ago. That may sound crazy, but this study comes from the company’s one billion monthly active users. There are other factors to consider when picking between Android and iOS, of course, but if you’re looking for a phone that won’t crash Google’s platform may be the better choice.

For app developers, gaming is proving to be the best way to make money, and what’s becoming increasingly apparent is that mobile devices are becoming the next big gaming platform. While traditional consoles and gaming handhelds still remain important and are capable of delivering experiences that mobile devices simply can not match, this gap is steadily eroding.

InfinityBlade3 What do games tell us about Apples future?

In September 2013, a Gartner report showed that revenues of mobile app stores had risen from $18 billion in 2012, to an estimated $26 billion. At the start of this year, Apple announced that customers spent over $10 billion on the App Store in 2013, including over $1 billion in December alone.

The bulk of this, Gartner estimates, comes from games. According to 148apps.biz, games are the most numerous category of apps as well, with 1,95,415 games currently available for download. This is nearly 60 percent more than the nearest category, education, which has 1,15,469 apps available for download.

And while mobile gaming conjures visions of Flappy Bird and Candy Crush Saga, Apple’s trying to make it clear that there’s more to the platform than just casual games to play while on the commute.

Here come the hardcore
Since February 26, Apple has been running a sale curated with the name “Amazing Hardcore Games”. It’s not an exhaustive list, but it is a collection of 12 new games that should appeal to the so called “core” gaming audience. Games like Infinity Blade III, The Room Two, Limbo, Badland and more are available for 50 percent or less of their usual price.shadow blade What do games tell us about Apples future?

These are all premium games, and none of them has gone free even now – some, like Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion normally sell for Rs. 550, and are now discounted to Rs. 170. Others, like Shadow Blade, normally sell for Rs. 110, and are now priced at Rs. 55. The discounts are pretty big, but by not going free, a clear line is being drawn, differentiating these paid, premium games from the large number of casual friendly, free to play titles that are crowding the app store.

What’s particularly interesting is that these are all titles that are very “finger friendly” – games that are either designed with mobile interactions in mind, or were ported in such a way as to make them very user friendly on the platform. In many ways, these games are a showcase of all that’s best about Apple’s iOS devices as a gaming platform. In other words, these games are a great way to get the casual gamers to move on from the 5000 match three or Flappy Bird clones, and get them invested in gaming. What’s the upside to that though?

There’s another side of hardcore games on the App Store which this list has glossed over. Games like Bastion, Lego Harry Potter, Orc: Vengeance are all beautiful games that offer polished experiences. However, while the developers have worked hard to make the interactions user friendly, the experience is compromised compared to what a player on a console with a gamepad will enjoy. But gamepads are coming to iOS.

No more virtual buttons
A January report by mobile data-intelligence firm App Annie suggests that gamers world-wide are picking their smartphones over handheld gaming devices like the Nintendo 3DS and the Playstation Vita. Combined, iOS and Google Play spending on games was three times the amount spent on titles on the handheld gaming consoles in the third quarter of last year, according to the report, which didn’t provide absolute figures. Overall, there were 15 percent more yearly app downloads from Google Play than the App Store in 2013, but iOS generated double the app revenue of Google Play.
logitech powershell controller battery What do games tell us about Apples future?

As per the report, the number one mobile game was Candy Crush Saga. At the same time, iOS 7 added controller support, and you now have the Logitech Powershell and the Moga Ace – controllers that you can clip onto your iPhone. The Powershell is available in India with an MRP of Rs. 8,995; it’s a high price for what feels like a really cheap plastic controller. But it’s only the first one.

Moga teaser What do games tell us about Apples future?

Moga has recently teased a new controller, and from the small image which the company made available, the design of the controller seems to be very similar to the Xbox 360 controller, which is definitely a good thing. Aside from the asymmetrical thumb-sticks, you can see the D-pad, and the face buttons seem to be in the familiar Xbox layout as well. Next to the left thumb-stick, there’s something like looks like a pause button, and also a Bluetooth button a little higher up.

Steelseries has also recently revealed the Stratus, in January, a palm-sized Bluetooth controller which can work with your iPhone, iPod or iPad. Also in January, Signal showcased the RP One, a full size controller that looks like the Xbox 360 gamepad, but uses the thumb-stick placement of the Playstation controllers.

Thinking beyond mobile
Apple has thus proven that they have a range of powerful gaming devices which can handle everything from the casual game you play for two minutes while on your commute, and also the high-end game which will keep you glued to the screen till the battery runs out.

Apple is also reportedly working on television next – recent acquisitions such as PrimaSense, which developed the sensors that Microsoft used for its voice and motion based Kinect technology, and Matcha.tv, a recommendation engine for TV shows – seem to point in this direction.

Apple TV 2nd Generation What do games tell us about Apples future?

With a strong gaming ecosystem already present, and a growing number of hardware partners emerging to support it in this segment with controllers, a powerful new Apple TV could also be a strong gaming platform.

At the launch of the third generation iPad in 2012, the then president of Epic Games Mike Capps had said: “It is quite easy to imagine a world where an iPad is more powerful than a home console, where it wirelessly talks to your TV and wirelessly talks to your Bluetooth controller and becomes your new console.”

At the same time, Kristoffer Waardahl, a Crytek studio manager said, “As more people come to these platforms, we have to follow our fans.”

Closing the loop
With the iPad and iPhone becoming more powerful, using them to run high-end games that can be mirrored to your TV screen is already happening, albeit in a very limited fashion. That’s because a mobile game requires you to look at the screen to see what buttons you’re pressing.

The big advantage that a Logitech Powershell brings is that you can play a game mirrored to your TV without having to look at the phone. The mobile experience and the games tailored to that form factor won’t go anywhere, but there will be a possibility now for Apple’s platform to bring in a whole new segment of games.

At the same time, if you don’t have an iPad or iPhone, a future version of Apple TV could still bring you into the fold as a gamer. A future version is almost certainly coming, and reports are that it’s going to be a major update.

It is being suggested that Apple will be tying up with companies like Time Warner and other content partners, and in this scenario, a greater focus on gaming as another type of content that’s well suited to television makes sense.

Once you have an Apple TV and a controller, making your next smartphone compatible with your library of games and accessories makes sense. Imagine playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown with a controller and your Apple TV, and then, when it’s time to go, picking up the same game thanks to a cloud save, and taking it with you on your iPad?

Both the mobiles and the TV could reinforce each other and reduce the cost involved in buying into Apple’s ecosystem. Developers have long made it clear that they will go where the fans are. And while the first few Bluetooth controllers were not very well received because of price and build quality, they are proof that a strong third-party ecosystem can help fill the gaps Apple leaves behind. Between all these factors, it’s clear that Apple TV will be about a lot more than just television.

iPhone 6 fantasies will no doubt reach fetishistic levels at some point, but we’re far enough out from the fall, and from the inevitable leaks that will come as fall approaches, that many possibilities, many dreams, remain open to us. What with the all the new Android phones at MWC dropping like cluster bombs this week, I’ll admit I’m incredibly eager to see what Apple has planned for this year as well. I’ll preface it by saying all I’ve heard so far is that there’ll likely be two iPhones this year, a 4-inch model and a bigger than 4-inch model. Whether that’s the iPhone 5s dropped down, an iPhone 5sc made unabashedly plastic, or simply a smaller iPhone 6 remains to be seen. As does the size of the larger phone, from 4.3 to almost 5-inches. So let’s begin there…

apple iphone 61 Apples upcoming iPhone 6  What will you expect to?

1. Larger screen

This part should go without saying, seeing as how I — and pretty much every one else — have said so much about it already. A larger screen would increase Apple’s share of the premium market, remove the only key physical differentiator of the subsidized competition, make a better primary computing device, make a more accessible product, and open the platform up for future advancement. An iPhone 6 with a bigger screen, at this point in time, would do what Apple does best — make for a better product that could delight and even larger pool of potential customers.

I used to think I’d prefer 4.3, but after having used a BlackBerry Z10, Nexus 5, and Lumia 1020 over the last few months, I’ve come to realize the point of going big is GOING BIG. I’d love as close to 5-inches as possible, especially if the overall size of the iPhone scales as little as possible with it.

2. Curvier design language

One of these things is not like the other. That’s what comes to mind when I look at the iPod touch, iPad Air, Retina iPad mini, and iPhone 5s. The iPads and iPod are sleek and slim, with curves in all the right places. The iPhone 5s, like the iPhone 5 before it, is an extruded round-rect with sharp edges. Rather than just catching up to the iPad and iPod design language, it would be great to take it a step further. Or, rather, a touch further. iOS 7 is so physical, do directly manipulable, that it’s hard to imagine iOS 8 being otherwise. And all of the current lateral edge gestures — the hierarchical back gesture, the forward and back sequential gestures — would just feel so much better with curved edges.

How a combination of Apple’s ultra-thin screen technology with what would hopefully be much, much smaller bezels and my desire for rounded edges would all come together, I’m not certain, I just know I’d love it if they could.

3. Smarter sensors

The iPhone 5s not only added Touch ID but iBeacon and the Apple M7 motion coprocessor as well. Apple’s been at the forefront of the contextual awakening, from multitouch, accelerometer, ambient light, and proximity, to aGPS and GLONASS, gyroscope and magnometer, and, of course, Siri which made the mic “smart”. The Moto X has natural language and contextual coprocessors to enable Google Now to “always listen”. Whether or not Apple goes that far, letting Siri run locally would be a welcome upgrade all its own.

There’s a lot more that can be done with sensorsl, including adding smarts to iSight, improving indoor navigation, and tying into the rumored HealthBook and iWatch projects, and all of that will require not only software, but data gathering, battery-saving technology as well.

4. Prioritized battery life

Once upon a time speed was the most important thing. Every year we expected our computers to be significantly faster and more powerful than the year before. Eventually, however, the speed improvements leveled off. Luckily, for most people, most of the time, computers were already fast enough, and something else became even more important — battery life. Thanks to Haswell and OS X Mavericks, we now have a MacBook Air that can outlast any iOS device on the planet. Maybe it’s time for the same shift in priority to hit the iPhone?

Every year Apple has made the new iPhone significantly faster, thinner, and more powerful than the year before while keeping the same battery life. Miracle of engineering that may be, I’d love to see the priority shift to keeping the same thinness but greatly increasing battery life. Let’s see the iPhone regain the long-lasting crown.

5. Optics to match the imaging

With iSight, Apple makes some of the best cameras in mobile. However, the greatness of the iPhone 5s camera, like the greatness of the iPhone 5 camera before it isn’t primarily in the optics or in the capture stage at all. It’s in the digital image processor. The Apple A7 is simply a monster when it comes to taking whatever data that thin 8 megapixel sensor can latch onto and making the most of it. It’s so good, in fact, the ultra-thin iPhone 5s can hold its own against much better, much deeper glass, including the larger aperture, bigger pixel, optically image stabilized monsters many of Apple’s competitors are fielding.

What makes a mobile camera great isn’t specs. Its the ability to take better pictures in the widest range of circumstances possible, including and especially low-light. If Apple could marry better, smarter optics to their already industry leading processing, no light would no longer be the limit.

6. Faster race-to-sleep Wi-Fi

Apple’s AirPort Extreme routers got faster, longer-range 802.11ac wireless networking last year, as did the Mac product lines and several Android phones. The iPhone 5s did not. It might seem like an odd thing to want, given how fast 802.11n is already, but for devices born to be mobile, for a wireless world, for syncing and streaming, downloading and beaming, every second of time you shave off is a measure of experience you improve.

Hopefully there’s a power-saving race-to-sleep advantage to 802.11ac as well, letting data move faster so the chips can power down faster, which would make it even better.And four things I don’t think we’ll see!

There are some things, fantasy or not, I don’t think we’ll see in an iPhone 6 or any imminent new phone from Apple. Some because of the laws of economics and physics, others simply because of Apple focus and beliefs.

Ditching the Home button. Making a screen bigger without increasing the size of the phone typically means removing or reducing almost everything else from the face plate. However, not only does Apple have that big round Home button, it’s now the nexus for Touch ID as well. Unless and until that moves — in screen? — the big honking Home button stays.

More metallic finishes. Gold was great but the metallic red and blue finishes on the iPod touch are likewise gorgeous. Apple could even stagger their releases so some of the colors come out midway through the typical year-long product cycle, giving it a little more life… All that said, so far Apple’s kept the brighter colors constrained to the lower end product lines, including the iPhone 5c and that doesn’t seem likely to change.

NFC. It remains a chipset, not a feature set, and Apple’s all in on Passbook, Bluetooth LE, and iBeacon. Personally, I’d love NFC. Outside the U.S. all of our credit and debit cards not only have chip-and-pin, but many have NFC as well. I can pay for my groceries, my fast food, my coffee, my gas, my clothes, and almost everything else under $60 with a tap. Just not the tap of an iPhone.

Multiple carrier radios. Yes, the iPhone 5s can’t do simultaneous voice-and-data on Verizon. That’s because LTE doesn’t support simultaneous voice-and-data and, unlike GSM carriers, Verizon has no HSPA to fall back on. Their EVDO Rev. A doesn’t do voice-and-data either. Other manufacturers add a second radio to get around this, giving up some battery efficiency to do it. Apple isn’t those manufacturers and they don’t like that tradeoff. Sadly, voice over LTE (VoLTE) is still a ways off, and Apple hasn’t traditionally embraced new radios quickly, and for the same power efficient reasons.

Your iPhone 6 dreams?

That’s a short list of some of the things I’d like to see — and a few I don’t expect to — in Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6. Since we’re over half-a-year away from the traditional fall launch window, there’s a lot of freedom to speculate right now and that’s the fun part. Not crazy stuff like a built-in iEspresso maker or glowing Apple logo but maybe things like better waterproofing or always-on notifications on the display? What are your dreams for the iPhone 6?

The significance in this product is not in the materials, though. It is in the fact that there is enough interest in this category of device for Pebble to even consider building a second version. Smartwatches and wearables are beginning their meteoric climb, and hopefully Apple will be a part of this trend with its iWatch.

Dell P2815Q 4K monitor

CES was filled with 4K products, but none caught my eye as much as Dell’s upcoming 28-inch 4K monitor. The most attractive part of the display is it price tag — a cool $700. To me, this brings the technology down from the upper echelon, which often is the target consumer for display devices at CES, to professional users who own a Mac Pro. In ten months from now, the price will fall even further, making 4K monitors one of the hot items to look for during the end-of-the-year holiday shopping season.

Haier Air Conditioner

You are probably wondering what an air conditioner has to do with Apple, other than keeping the fruit cool on a warm early fall day. This air conditioner is different from any other air conditioner produced — it is the first model that is authorized by Apple’s MFi program. The MFi standard ensures devices connect to an Apple device with minimal configuration and make it easy for a consumer to control the appliance using their iOS device. This air conditioner is more than a cooling device, it is the beginning of the connected home as envisioned by Apple.

Mophie Space Pack

Mophie showed off its latest battery case that combines an extended battery with storage space. It’s a sleek looking case that shows Mophie is not done innovating in the iOS accessory world. It also is a sign that the iOS accessory market is alive and well. I can’t wait to see what Mophie and other manufactures have in store for us this year and in the coming years.
