Samsung ATIV S Video Ad

ATIV S is the first Windows Phone 8-based smartphone Samsung will bring to the market before the end of this year, and will be released on the networks of various wireless carriers around the world.

This is only one of the devices that will hit the market with Microsoft’s new mobile OS on board and should deliver a great experience to all users, especially when coupled with Windows 8 devices. In fact, Samsung’s commercial for the smartphone, which can be seen embedded above, stresses on the features and capabilities that all of its newest Windows products, including the ATIV S, have to offer.

The company notes that it is committed to delivering more appealing devices powered by Windows Phone 8 in the not too distant future. The already announced ATIV Odyssey for Verizon will be one of them.

With the introduction of Microsoft's Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 operating systems, Samsung debuts "ATIV", the new brand for its Windows-based devices which includes the ATIV SMART PC, ATIV Smart PC Pro, ATIV Tab, and ATIV S. 
Samsung is one of very few companies that is capable of offering such a diverse product lineup and is committed to offering more choices based on the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 platforms for consumers.
Samsung's ATIV devices are simple, powerful, and beautiful. Together, Samsung and Microsoft will provide users with an advanced, productive and creative experience with its ATIV devices. Its full lineup is designed for a simple user experience to share your work and ideas, as well as enjoy consuming content.

Meet Steve. Meet his New Windows Phone, First Windows Phone 8 Ad

Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer is actively involved in the marketing of Windows Phone 8, and he is present in the very first video ad with the platform.

According to the Redmond-based software giant, Windows Phone 8 has been designed as the most personal mobile operating system out there, and said commercial, available above, comes as a proof of that. The video presents Steve Ballmer’s own Windows Phone 8 device, with CEO’s own voice heard in the background.

His phone is different from the smartphone of another Windows Phone user, and Ballmer stressed on this yesterday in San Francisco when he mentioned Joe Belfiore’s and Jessica Alba’s Windows Phones in addition to his. With the possibility to change not only what’s being displayed on the screen, but also the color of the device (through shells as those available for Lumia 820), a Windows Phone can indeed become highly personal.

Crucial DDR3L 8GB and 16 GB Server RAM

While desktop memory modules do not come in 16 GB capacities yet, server modules do, even in low-voltage configuration.

Crucial's new DDR3L registered DIMMs are the latest evidence to that effect. Created specifically for Intel's Xeon-based servers, as part of the Intel Demo Depot Program, the modules offer 8 GB to 16 GB capacities. So far, Intel Demo Depot Program consists of more than 200 servers. Essentially, it is an initiative that lets prospective Xeon server buyers loan a server for testing before they actually buy it.

Crucial, being a sub-division of Micron, submits its modules to Micron's Systems Compatibility Group qualification, validation, and testing procedures. In layman terms, Intel is lending servers to possible buyers and Crucial is using the chance as an opportunity to advertise its random access memory.

Lenovo Thinkpad Helix Convertible Ultrabook

The “ultrabook convertible” product type got introduced just a few days ago, but it is really more of a retroactive baptism for all the convertible ultrabooks that existed before.

One of the ultrabooks with the ability to become a tablet is called ThinkPad Helix and was invented by Lenovo. Unfortunately, this particular device is not available worldwide. In fact, it was supposed to only be sold in China, Lenovo's home market. New information suggests that the laptop will be sold in Israel as well, meaning that the rest of the world should receive it too, sooner or later.

ThinkPad Helix is an 11.6-inch ultrabook (1920 x 1080 pixels) with a detachable IPS touchscreen and 10-hour battery life. It runs on a Core i7 Intel CPU, features 3G, a stylus, and near field communication (NFC).

Google Nexus 10 Tablet Launched, Brings 2560 x 1600 Display

It turns out that we spoke too soon when we said, yesterday (October 29, 2012), that Google would not be selling the Samsung-manufactured Nexus 10 tablet as planned.

Although Hurricane Sandy really did force the company to cancel its launch event, Google decided to just make the announcement on the Internet and be done with it. This is the fabled ultra-high resolution slate that iPad lovers might want to watch out for. The 10.055-inch Super AMOLED screen is a 2560 x 1600 panel (300 pixels per inch / ppi). Since we are on the subject, we may as well say what other important components are part of this slate. The Samsung Exynos 5250 is the so-called heart. It is the first Cortex A15-based processor to hit the market and runs at 1.7 GHz. 2 GB of RAM are present as well, along with a Mali-T604 GPU (graphics processing unit) and 16 GB or 32 GB of NAND Flash storage.

Curiously enough, there is no microSD card slot here, so buyers won't be able to extend the capacity, unlike on most other tablets of today. Finally, the tablet is equipped with NFC (near field communication), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. As for software, the Android 4.2 operating system is installed (Jelly Bean with a minor update), complete with multi-user functionality. What that means is that multiple user accounts can be set up, like in Microsoft Windows, with their own passwords, file access settings, game high score charts, home screens, music, etc. Finally, the battery can last for up to nine hours of video playback, or 500 hours of standby.

Google will be selling the Nexus 10 from November 13, 2012 onwards, through Walmart and the Google Play store, in U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and Japan. The price is of $399 / 399 Euro for the 16 GB slate and $499 / 499 Euro for the 32 GB tablet.

Nokia Calendar Fix for Belle Refresh Devices

Nokia might be focused on the launch of its new Windows Phone 8 devices, but it seems that the company isn’t forgetting about those owning Symbian devices either.

The company has just started to push out a Calendar fix for the owners of Nokia N8 handsets running under the Belle Refresh operating system, in an attempt to resolve some issues that the app was found to be affected by. Following the update, users should see the Symbian Calendar app brought up to version 10.6, the guys over at All About Symbian note.

Users should receive a notification on the availability of this update, but they can also perform manual checks to see whether it has arrived or not, by firing up SW Update. The new firmware requires for the handset to be restarted.

Eurocom Reveals Powerful Mobile Workstations Featuring NVIDIA Quadro K Graphics

After launching several gaming notebooks, Eurocom is more than ready to expand its collection of professional mobile workstations, which is precisely what it has just done.

The company has introduced the Eurocom Scorpius, Neptune 2.0 and Racer 2.0 high-end mobile computers. All of them have made the news for one reason or other at least once before, but only now have they been formally put up for sale, in their professional configurations at least. The Scorpius and Neptune 2.0 both measure 17.3 inches in diagonal (1920 x 1080 pixels displays, of course), but the Racer 2.0 is smaller, at 15.6 inches (the same resolution though). All of them allow buyers to choose between NVIDIA Quadro K5000M and K3000M-series graphics cards. That isn't where the customizability ends though. In fact, prospective buyers will get the option of choosing from among several CPUs (all of them Intel Ivy Bridge though), DDR3 memory configurations (up to 32 GB) and storage drives (up to four HDDs/SSDs on Scorpius, three on Neptune 2.0 and two on Racer 2.0).

"The stability of our systems during CAD operations comes from a lot of work from our technical team in terms of testing drivers and testing applications to make sure things work perfectly," explains Mark Bialic, Eurocom president. Eurocom promises that its workstations can run any sort of software with ease, which makes sense given the hardware. Dassault Systemes Solidworks, Siemens Solid Edge, Creo Elements Pro, CATIA and Autodesk Inventor all operate to full specification, although the performance will vary according to specs. And now we might as well give a short description of NVIDIA's Quadro adapters. The K5000M has a 28nm-based Kepler GPU and 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM on 256 bit bandwidth. The K3000M is a bit slower and has 2 GB memory.
