Download iOS 5.1.1 Now

Apple has rolled out a surprise update for iDevice owners with the purpose of tweaking a few things and applying fixes, including some to improve the security of the platform.

iOS 5.1.1 is immediately available for download via iTunes or over-the-air (OTA) and improves reliability of using HDR option for photos taken using the Lock Screen shortcut, as well as reliability when syncing Safari bookmarks and Reading List.

The update addresses bugs that could prevent the new iPad from switching between 2G and 3G networks, and bugs that affected AirPlay video playback in some circumstances.

An issue has been fixed where ‘Unable to purchase’ alert could be displayed after successful purchase.

Lastly, the update includes several security patches targeting Safari, the standard web browser on all Apple platforms.

Impacting iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation) and later, iPad, and iPad 2, a URL spoofing issue exists in Safari and can potentially be used to direct the user to a spoofed site.

iOS 5.1.1 has improved URL handling which addresses this issue. The problem is not present on Mac OS X systems. Apple credits David Vieira-Kurz of MajorSecurity (majorsecurity.net) for discovering and reporting the issue.

Affecting the exact same platforms, multiple cross-site scripting issues and a memory corruption issue exist in WebKit, a software component required to display web pages in Safari.

With the help of Sergey Glazunov (working with Google's Pwnium contest), as well as Adam Barth and Abhishek Arya of the Google Chrome Security Team, Apple has patched both of these flaws as well.

The impact of these two issues was:
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to a cross-site scripting attack
Impact: Visiting a maliciously crafted website may lead to an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution

iDevice owners can either connect their devices to iTunes and select “check for updates”, or select Settings -> General, and select Software Update from their iOS device to install iOS 5.1.1.

Samsung Tizen Device Showcased on Video

South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung has brought to the Tizen developer conference a developer device to showcase some of the main features of the platform. 

The handset vendor is one of the founding members of the Tizen OS, and it does not come as a surprise that it already had such devices in the works. 

The first Tizen developer smartphone is said to pack an ARM-based 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and not an Intel chip, as one might have expected. 

Additionally, the new developer handset is said to sport a touchscreen display capable of delivering a 720p HD resolution, and it also sports WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, NFC and microUSB. 

The UI of the new mobile platform resembles in many aspects Samsung’s TouchWiz UX (app icons and some application interfaces appear similar with the popular Samsung software). You can learn more on this via the video above, available courtesy of The Handheld Blog.

Micron Launches Its First DDR4 Module

The next generation of computer dynamic random access memory is getting closer with each passing day, and now we get to see Micron's first module based on it. 

Micron isn't the first company to demo a DDR4 memory module. Hynix went first, last month, even before JEDEC revealed some key details about the specification. 

What we are looking at here is, however, the first module that Micron has ever brought forth. 

With a capacity of 4 GB, it is composed of a PCB (printed circuit board) and eight 4 Gb DDR4 chips. 

Said chips are constructed using the 30nm manufacturing process and were developed in partnership with Nanya. 

"With the JEDEC definition for DDR4 very near finalization, we've put significant effort into ensuring that our first DDR4 product is as JEDEC-compatible as it can be at this final stage of its development," said Brian Shirley, vice president for Micron's DRAM Solutions Group. 

"We've provided samples to key partners in the market place with confidence that the die we give them now is the same die we will take into mass production." 

Micron intends to produce a complete collection of DDR4 product: RDIMM, LRDIMM, 3DS, SODIMM and UDIMM. 

Initial speeds will be of 2,400 megatransfers per second (MT/s), but later modules will climb to 3,200 MT/s. 

Intel previously revealed that its Haswell-EX platform would only add DDR4 support in 2014, but Micron is one of the companies who want to speed things up. It is in 2013 that it wants to unleash its new RAM upon the world. Volume production will commence in Q4 2012. 

For those wondering, Samsung is the one that didn't much like the idea of DDR4 taking another two years to show up. Alas, even if they do complete their devices by 2013, they won't see much demand if there aren't any motherboards and processors that support them.

Nokia Lumia 610 Arrives in Malaysia, Priced at $229 USD (€175) Outright

Three weeks ago Nokia officially announced the rollout of the Lumia 610 in Asia. Unfortunately, things did not work as planned, at least in Philippines where the device has been delayed “indefinitely.”

The good news is that Nokia Lumia 610 has just hit shelves in Malaysia and is now available for purchase at all Nokia Stores across the country.

Customers get to choose from four color schemes, such as: white, cyan, magenta and black. The cheapest Windows Phone device launched by Nokia, Lumia 610 is priced in Malaysia at RM699 ($229 USD or €175) off-contract.

As expected, Nokia Lumia 610 comes pre-loaded with Windows Phone 7.5 Tango (build 8773) out of the box, which is especially designed to work on devices with less than 512MB of RAM.

Aimed at emerging markets, Nokia Lumia 610 is expected to go on sale in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam. Philippines will also get the Lumia 610 by the end of May.

According to Nokia, the Lumia 610 will be available in other regions as well sometime this quarter.

Even though Nokia Lumia 610 is considered the cheapest Windows Phone manufactured by Nokia, it comes packed with interesting features that will probably make it pretty attractive to some Windows Phone fans.

In this regard, the smartphone comes with a more than decent 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.

The phone is equipped with a single-core 800 MHz processor and packs 8GB of internal memory and 256MB of RAM. On the back, there’s a 5-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and HD (720p) video recording.

Last but not least, Lumia 610 comes pre-loaded with Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Transport and Nokia Music, as well as access to thousands of apps via Windows Phone Marketplace.

ASRock Prepares to Tackle China, ASUS Helps

ASRock wants to expand its operations to include the Chinese market, so it has prepared a budget of NT$100 million for that purpose.

That's $3.4 million / 2.61 million Euro, according to exchange rates. ASUS will help the company compete with Gigabyte, according to Digitimes, by offering motherboards through its retail outlets.

Whether or not this enables ASRock to reach its intended shipment levels for the year (9 million) remains to be seen.

China is one of the few emerging markets and also the largest, so it is understandable that IT vendors would want to gain a foothold there.

It isn't clear for how long ASRock will depend on ASUS in this manner. Starting up a few shops shouldn't take all that long, so we're guessing that a sort of retail channel will be ready by year's end.

Transformer: Fall of Cybertron Is Adult Oriented

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will be the first title in the series that is not linked to any movie release and the development team behind it believes that the game can succeed as long as it promotes the tone seen in the initial trailer, revealed during the VGA ceremony.

Greg Agius, the marketing manager working on Fall of Cybertron at High Moon Studios, stated, “We needed to communicate that Fall of Cybertron is an adult oriented game that stands totally apart from anything related to the films. 

“So the team set out to break every rule we could think of for a Transformers trailer: we had zero voiceover, we destroyed main characters, we made the story come to you, and we picked a song that is totally groundbreaking for this franchise.”

He added, “When fans started posting, ‘attention – this is how you do Transformers’ I knew we had done things right. The style and look is all very in line with what gamers are currently playing.”

The High Moon development team needed to make a clean break with the movies based on the Transformers franchise because a number of gamers associated them with bad storytelling and with tie-in games that lacked any compelling mechanics.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will tell the story of how the home planet of the Autobots was destroyed and the developers plan to use a dark tone and approach a lot of complex themes with their story.

Characters included in Fall of Cybertron include: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, Jazz, Shockwave, Starscream, Onslaught, Blast Off, Cliffjumper, Ironhide, Grimlock, Sludge, Slag, Snarl, Swoop, Soundwave, Brawl, Swindle and Vortex.

Each character will get its own play style, special attack and unique look.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is set to be released on the PlayStation 3 from Sony and Xbox 360 from Microsoft on August 28 in North America and, presumably, three days later in Europe.

Nokia Mail for Exchange for Asha 302/303 Detailed on Video

Nokia’s Asha 302 and Asha 303 are getting a taste of the Mail for Exchange application that the Finnish handset vendor is preparing for its S40 devices. 

The application is available in a beta flavor at the moment, so that users can have a look at it and provide feedback on the experience it can deliver. 

However, Nokia is set to make the app available through the official Nokia Store portal soon, and it is actively working on enhancing it. 

Those who did not have the chance to download and install the software on their devices can do so through accessing the Nokia Beta Labs, where the pre-release version is up for grabs. 

“Nokia Mail for Exchange for Asha 302 and Asha 303 is a beta release mobile email application that utilizes widely used Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync protocol,” Nokia explains. 

“This protocol enables Email, Calendar and Contact data synchronization between compatible Nokia Asha phones and Microsoft Exchange servers.”

Some of the main features of the app include the possibility to access emails while on the go, complemented by the option to flag, move and copy messages. 

The app also provides support for extended text formatting, it can synchronize multiple accounts at the same time and offers autocomplete of contacts when composing emails. 

With Nokia Mail for Exchange for Asha 302 and Asha 303, users will also be able to search for messages locally, view attachment file names and forward these attachments. 

The software was designed to sync email, calendar and contacts data over a secure HTTPS connection, and to offer data encryption capabilities. Application inactivity security lock was also included in the software. 

It also delivers support for essential ActiveSync security policies, such as “Alphanumeric password required - Minimum password length - Minimum password required complex characters - Maximum failed password attempts - Local wipe after maximum attempts.”

Nokia 808 PureView Spotted at FCC, Possibly Coming to the US

Unveiled back in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia 808 PureView was confirmed for a May release in Europe.

Unfortunately, the Finnish company mentioned that the smartphone would not be launched in North America, or at least not in the near future. 

Given the fact that Nokia is trying to conquer the North American smartphone market with its Lumia series, it’s quite understandable that the company does not want one of its own devices to compete with the Windows Phone family of handsets.

However, it looks like the Nokia 808 PureView has just been spotted at FCC (Federal Communications Commission), which gives us some hope that the smartphone might hit shelves in North America after all.

This is not the first time Nokia skips North America with one of its top tier devices. Nokia N9 was very popular worldwide, even though it was the first to come with MeeGo out of the box.

Although it proved its success on most markets where it was launched, Nokia N9 was never officially released in North America. Obviously, the smartphone can be purchased via leading retailers across the country, but none of the carriers offers the N9.

Anyway, the Finnish handset vendor announced last week the rollout of the Nokia 808 PureView has started with Russia and India being the first countries to get it.

According to Nokia, Lumia 808 PureView will be available on the market for a suggested retail price of 450 EUR (600 USD). Still, the Symbian smartphone is priced a bit higher in the UK, as customers can pre-order the 808 PureView for £540 (870 USD or 670 EUR).

Nokia 808 PureView might arrive in North America, just not through the official channels, so we can expect this one to be pretty expensive. Hopefully, one of the carriers will grab this one for its customers.

Leaked Doc Shows BlackBerry 10’s Screen Sharing, Lock Screen Notifications

Canadian mobile phone maker Research In Motion is nearing the release of a new flavor of its mobile operating system, namely BlackBerry 10. 

The company has provided a variety of details on this OS only a few weeks ago, but it appears that it hasn’t delivered all of them. 

A leaked internal document from the handset vendor, which emerged over at the CB forums, has unveiled some additional pieces of information on what the upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform might include. 

Apparently, RIM has decided to include a built-in screen sharing feature with the next-gen mobile operating system version. 

The aforementioned leaked doc shows that users might be able to share the phone’s screen while in a call, which means great news for those who would like to share presentations with their contacts. 

The mobile phone maker did not make an official announcement on the availability of this feature, and it might not include it in the final release, but it chances are it actually will. 

Another great capability that BlackBerry devices might sport when the new platform release arrives is video editing, through software provided by JayCut. 

The leaked documents mention it, which suggests that it could indeed arrive on handsets. However, the same as with the aforementioned sharing capabilities, we’ll take this with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made. 

The lock screen of BlackBerry 10 also appears to have leaked via said presentation, showing a basic design, with the clock and notifications delivered to users without the need to unlock the device. 

Tilting the device will deliver more info on a notification, while the unlicking is made through sliding the screen up to at least two thirds. 

All these are great features, which should make BlackBerry users quite happy, provided that they will indeed make it to the new OS. Stay tuned for more on the matter.

BlackBerry 10 OS Files Reveal Upcoming Devices: Nevada, Winchester, London and More

RIM’s BlackBerry World 2012 has just closed its gates and developers who attended are still getting acquainted with their newly received BlackBerry 10 prototype devices.

For those who don’t know yet, RIM promised that each developer attending this year’s BlackBerry World event will receive a prototype device that will run a modified version of PlayBook OS.

Although this is not the final product, the Blackberry 10 Dev Alpha device is a useful tool for developers who wish to start creating apps for the latest operating system announced by RIM last week.

Even though RIM officially introduced the BlackBerry 10 SDK, the company mentioned that the first BlackBerry 10 devices won’t hit shelves until October 2012.

However, until RIM gets it together and announces the names and specs sheet its next Blackberry 10 devices, here are some interesting details on the Canadian company’s roadmap.

It appears that the folks at OSBB discovered the names of some of RIM’s BlackBerry 10 upcoming devices. According to them, these names are hidden in the Dev Alpha’s viewable file system.

The following names have been found within BlackBerry 10 OS files: Nevada, Winchester2 LTE, Winchester2 HSPA, Winchester2 LTE HSPA, Colt, London, Blackforest, Nashville, and Naples.

Developers who received the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha can verify the information on their device by typing file:///radio/etc/sv.numbers in the browser.

We already heard about BlackBerry Colt and London, but we don’t know anything about the rest of the devices mentioned on this list.

Rumor has it that Winchester is in fact the Blackberry PlayBook 3G and 4G, while the Blackforest might be the 10-inch PlayBook.

This is the first time we hear about Naples and Nashville, which will probably be the first Blackberry 10 devices that are expected to be officially released in Q4 2012. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.

iOS 6 Begs for SwipeSelection (Video)

Daniel Chase Hooper’s keyboard concept has become a reality for jailbreak fans, who can now download a tweak called SwipeSelection from Cydia and text faster and more reliably than ever before.

Demoed by iDownloadBlog in the above video, SwipeSelection enables iPad owners to move the cursor and do text selections in a much more accurate manner than that provided by default in iOS.

Everyone typing a lot of emails and documents on their iPad is wishing upon a star that Apple takes note of the tweak and eventually implements it in the next major release of its mobile operating system - iOS 6.

We have every reason to believe it’s going to happen. The best example is Notification Center, a new capability implemented by Apple last year in iOS 5, courtesy of one savvy bloke who had showed it off on YouTube.

AMD Updates G-Series Operating System Support

In addition to desktop and laptop accelerated processing units, Advanced Micro Devices has chips for servers and other industrial applications. One series of such processors has just gained a broader software support.

The Sunnyvale, California-based company dedicated a whole press release to the G-Series embedded APUs and their newfound support for Windows Embedded Compact 7.

The OS brings Silverlight for Windows Embedded, an updated version of Internet Explorer (support for Adobe Flash 10.1 included) and multi-touch support.

We don't mean just any multi-touch capabilities either, but natural, intuitive input capabilities and gesture-based interaction, as AMD calls them.

“We are excited AMD has expanded G-Series APU support for Windows Embedded Compact 7, giving OEMs the resources to drive innovation in a wide range of specialized devices,” said Steven Bridgeland, product manager for Windows Embedded at Microsoft. 

“These advances will help device manufacturers’ best leverage the Windows Embedded Compact platform to build industry-leading technologies that power intelligent systems.”

Support for G-Series APUs is integrated in Kontron's MSM-eO/-N PC/104-Plus SBC, Axiomtek's CAPA111 3.5-inch SBC and other boards and modules from the AMD Based Embedded Product Catalog.

The medical, retail and industrial automation industries are where the processors will be most useful, thanks to their low-power Bobcat x86 core and Radeon graphics. That the performance is packed inside very small, power-efficient and easy to cool packages is a nice bonus. More can be learned by visiting the AMD Embedded G-Series Platform site.

“AMD is committed to providing our customers with the broadest possible range of operating system support to help them bring devices to market quickly and cost effectively,” said Buddy Broeker, director, AMD Embedded Solutions. 

“Seamless support for Windows Embedded Compact 7 helps ensure that AMD Embedded G-Series customers are equipped to take full advantage of the many benefits afforded via the combination of these leading technologies.”

AMD Ready to Release 1 GHz AMD Radeon HD 7970

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680 managed to squeeze past the AMD Radeon HD 7970 in benchmark tests, but AMD might not allow this ranking to last much longer.

If what AtomicMPC says is true, then the Sunnyvale, California-based company will release a card that attains higher clocks on the same voltage.

The manufacturing process has supposedly improved enough that even 1.25 GHz can be attained without much effort.

This has opened the door for a 1 GHz HD 7970, making it the third 1 GHz board from its lineup (the other two are HD 7770 and HD 7870).

The new cards will have better overclocking potential too. NVIDIA might really have to crank up its marketing strategy soon.

There was no mention of when the leap from 925 MHz to 1GHz+ will be made, but we hope it comes fast.

$799 MacBook Airs Coming in Q3 2012

Reportedly aiming to take on Intel’s upcoming ultra-books priced around $700 US (roughly 538 EUR), Apple is said to be planning the release of a $799 MacBook Air model in the third quarter of 2012.

Citing the usual industry sources from Apple’s upstream supply chain, the hit-and-miss DigiTimes has a new scoop for Apple fanatics, this time regarding the price (not the specs) of an upcoming MacBook Air iteration.

The sources in question reportedly pointed out that Acer has reduced its ultra-book shipment target, whereas Intel continues to push aggressively, hoping to release devices in the $700 range in the near future.

The $799 MacBook Air is mentioned when the sources note that “if Intel is unable to bring down ASPs to its goal, the price gap between ultrabooks and the US$799 MacBook Air may further postpone the time ultrabooks become standardized.”

Apple currently sells an 11-inch MacBook Air with 64GB of Flash storage for $999 (around 770 EUR) and a 128GB version priced at over a thousand dollars.

The Cupertino giant has a 13-inch version also selling for a higher price with 128GB of storage. Should Apple introduce this aggressively priced MacBook Air (at least by its own standards), “the sources believe the strategy will damage ultrabooks allowing Apple to continue to press its advantage,” according to the Taiwanese trade publication.

Apple has been long rumored to transform the MacBook Pro line into a new family of laptops that closely resemble the MacBook Air.

The company will undoubtedly press forward with its hardware upgrades this year, though it may well keep both laptop families on board until 2013, or 2014 when it may finally decides to merge them into a single notebook line.

Samsung’s Windows Phone 8 Devices with Galaxy S III-Like Performance

South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung is getting ready for the release of great Windows Phone 8 devices later this year, the latest reports on the matter suggest. 

Following rumors on the possibility that the company was considering using Galaxy S III hardware to power the Windows Phone 8 products, some more info on the matter emerged. 

A recent article on SmartHouse claims that a Samsung executive has already confirmed that a Windows Phone 8 device featuring a Super AMOLED screen was in the works. 

Additionally, the company’s official is cited stating that the upcoming smartphone will be “as good” as the recently unveiled Android device. 

The handset was also confirmed to be included in the Focus series, capable of impressing people as much as the Galaxy smartphones can. 

Moving forth, Samsung will also launch Windows 8-based tablet PCs, most probably set to hit shelves in the fourth quarter of the year as well. 

The info on Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8 smartphone matches what WP Life learned from one of their “trusted sources.”

Apparently, Windows Phone 8 will arrive with a wide range of enhancements when compared to the current software, and will offer support for much more powerful hardware. 

Thus, dual- and quad-core architecture could be included inside Windows Phone 8 devices, although Microsoft and its partners have yet to confirm any such features. 

When it comes to Samsung’s said device, supposedly called Focus S II, rumored specs include a 4.7-inch HD display and 4G LTE connectivity capabilities, along with the more powerful application processor. 

Additionally, the phone is said to sport a 12-megapixel photo snapper on the back, complemented by a 2MP camera on the front. It would also feature NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities, improved photo studio, Samsung Cloud Support, and more. 

Since nothing has been confirmed on this until now, we’ll take these details with a grain of salt, but we’ll also keep an eye out for additional info.

Custom GeForce GTX 670 WindForce OC Gigabyte Video Card Pictured

Since we established that Nvidia is confident enough that their Kepler GPUs are cool and it’s safe for Nvidia’s partners to play around with the card’s design, we’re not really surprised with Gigabyte’s own custom cooled GeForce GTX 670 implementation.

The card reportedly has the same CUDA core count of 1,344, and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 256-bit memory interface that we all expected. The specifications were verified using the well-known GPU-Z and it was revealed that the card comes with a clock speed of 980 MHz for the GPU, 1,059 MHz when the Boost function kicks into action and 1,502 MHz for the memory.

Cooling is well taken care of by Gigabyte’s popular and well-designed  WindForce 3X cooling system. As you can see in the gallery, the card’s PCB is just as long as the reference one for the GTX 680. Price has not been made available yet.

GeForce GTX 670 Up Close and Bare

NVIDIA's GeForce 670 graphics card will be available worldwide sooner or later, but that doesn't mean the world has to keep waiting for information about it. 

The same goes for pictures. The press shots of Colorful's card were seen not long ago and, now, we get to glance at the PCB itself (printed circuit board), not the cooler. 

Compared to the GTX 680, GTX 670 is a fairly short card, with the eight GDDR5 memory chips installed along the sides (half of them on the back), around the GK104 GPU. 

The VRM area (a 4+2 phase design) is at the front-end of the PCB. As for everything else, the GTX 670 has two dual-link DVI ports, HDMI connectors, a DisplayPort and two SLI bridge connectors (4-way SLI capability). Power is received via two 6-pin power inputs. As before, we have no price to impart.

Brazos 2.0 Acer Aspire E1-421 Pictured

Neither Acer nor Advanced Micro Devices has formally spoken about the Aspire E1-421, but that didn't stop retailers and watchful people from revealing its existence. 

In fact, we have something better than a rumor to report on in this instance: the Brazos 2.0-based laptop has been caught on photo. 

The AMD accelerated processing unit (APU) is called E1-1200 and has two x86 cores, plus Radeon graphics. 

The clock speed of the CPU cores is 1.4 GHz and the GPU is the Radeon HD 7310. The latter relies on 256MB of the system memory. 

Speaking of which, the E1-1200 is backed by 2 GB of DDR3 RAM (random access memory) and, thus, can do pretty much everything owners could need, even play certain games. 

The display isn't too shabby either: at 14 inches in diagonal, it boasts a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels (HD). 

Moving on, the storage capacity of 320 GB, provided by a hard disk drive unit (HDD), isn't really monumental, but it is still more than decent. 

As for the rest, a DVD Super Multi optical drive exists, along with 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, integrated audio/speakers, Gigabit Ethernet and other I/O, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, a 2-in-1 card reader and two video outputs (VGA and HDMI). This listing says so, though it gives no price. 

Advanced Micro Devices has previously said that its latest APUs already have a good number of design wins to brag about. 

This must be one of them, although we think the typo on the box could have been done without. Ah well, this is an early sighting, so Acer still has time to procure a new batch of boxes. 

Acer's Aspire E1-421 runs the Microsoft Windows 8 operating system, according to the sticker on the left of the trackpad. We're certain Windows 8 will take its place later this year.

Leaked Internal Doc Shows Blue DROID RAZR Coming Up

Motorola DROID RAZR, the thin and powerful Android-based device that made a debut on Verizon’s network last year, is expected to arrive on shelves in a new, blue shade. 

The mobile phone was already made available in three different color flavors, namely Black, White and Purple, but it appears that Motorola and Verizon are considering the release of yet another model. 

The Blue DROID RAZR was spotted in leaked documents that emerged over at Android Central and is expected to make an official debut as soon as May 17th. 

Apparently, the new device will feature exactly the same specifications and capabilities as the models that were launched before it, which means that it will run under the Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system. 

Interestingly enough, the blue color on the upcoming DROID RAZR variant resembles a lot the one on Nokia’s Lumia 900 smartphone (and Lumia 800, for that matter).
