Samsung has finally released their latest Galaxy S4. One of the great features that it has is the front and rear camera which can be used simultaneously.
The South Korea-based company launched the smartphone in an event in Thursday at the Radio City Music Hall in New York. It was broadcasted live in the New York Times Square so people could watch the event.

This feature is not present in other devices with front and rear cameras.
Another feature is that it can take two photos at the same time as well as combine the two taken photos in various ways.

PadFone of Asus will make it big in the market.
If you are trying to come up with a marketable brand that will surely make it big to the market, “PadFone” would not be the first name that you’ll think. However, this amazingly peculiar name worked for Asus.
On Tuesday, Asus announced that it would be continuing to release its PadFone line starting with its PadFone Infinity. Basically, it is a 5-inch LTE smartphone that becomes a 10.1-inch tablet everytime it’s docked into the included PadFone Infinity Station. It is expected to be released this April for 999 euros.
The smartphone/tablet does not look far from the iPhone 5, except that it’s longer and wider. It has resilient metal encasing and is light in the hands. It runs with Android 4.2 and a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor with an Adreno 320 GPU. It also has the Super IPS 5-inch screen packs in 1920 x 1080 pixels, which delivers 441 ppi.
For the PadFone Station, it houses a 10.1-inch screen with 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and will not work if not connected to the smartphone. It also has features such as a 1-mega pixel front-facing camera, an ambient light sensor, Micro-USB 2.0 port, and an e-compass.
The PadFone Station is simply a shell for the phone and has zero functionality unless the two are connected. It houses a 10.1-inch screen with 1,920×1,200-pixel resolution. Other features include a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, Micro-USB 2.0 port, an ambient light sensor, and an e-compass. An added feature includes GSM, WCDMA, and 100Mbps-capable LTE antennas as well as a non-removable 5000mAh lithium polymer battery.
The PadFone of Asus impresses consumers with its high-end specs that’s worth the price. No release date is planned for U.S. yet, but Asus is expecting it be launched in April in the U.K.
Nokia has something new again in their line of smartphones. Some say the Lumia is way better than this phone but we’re sure there something in this device that is not in Lumia.
For $699, Nokia put on sale its 808 PureView Smartphone in the US. Housing a Symbian OS, 512 of RAM and 1.38GHz single-core processor. Competitive but cannot beat Lumia.
But what does it have that others don’t have?
There is a 41-megapixel camera that it houses. This is quite a phone for camera lovers and great for capturing unforgettable moments.
But is this really worth you $699? Maybe yes, go to Amazon and try to look up the phone.
US wireless carrier T-Mobile has verified that it’s going to be offering up the most awaited Nokia Lumia 800 when it becomes available on November 16.

Several networks and stores verified that they will be keeping a stock of the Nokia Lumia 800 once the phone was released, however the wireless company is taking its time to jump on top of the group.
From TechRadar’s hands on review: the new Nokia Lumia 800 suggests, the Windows Phone 7 Mango carrying mobile phone is really a huge deal for both Microsoft and Nokia, plus the early signs are positive.
- 3.7 inch OLED touchscreen with a 800×480 resolution,
- 1.4GHz single-core processor and a special style.
The phone is going to be offered for no extra cost on 2 year deals from £30 per month and up.
Chief Marketing Officer of T-Mobile UK, Pippa Dunn, said: “The Lumia 800 is a stunning looking phone and will be a great addition to our handset offering in the run up to Christmas.”
“When matched with one of our flexible price plans, it is the perfect choice for those wanting the latest feature packed smartphone at an affordable price point.” she added.
A narrative proposal: Hide a smartphone inside the back of a tablet, and you could have the best of both worlds. That is what Asus has done with its PadFone, snuggling its latest Android smartphone into a docking bay in the back of its bigger-screened tablet companion, full with a little door that closes behind it, storing the handset secretly.
This may remind us of the Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone. Yet, it is not fairly similar, because Atrix plugs into a laptop-like buddy, containing a keyboard and screen.
At this moment, details of the configuration are so far dim. Asus has been plugging its tagline of “Break the Rules: Pad or Phone” and the company is performing that by carrying the type of flexibility to a tablet form factor of Motorola Atrix.
Together Asus and Motorola are on the right track, because those who should bring about a bag complete of devices each day, we would desire to keep away from replication of effort. This Asus system utilizes what is perhaps a double-core processor within that smartphone to run a tablet also. After that there is only one unit that carries both tables and smartphone processing, and there is only one cellphone bill to pay.
