Huawei Ascend P6 New Photo

Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei should make official in the not-too-distant future a new smartphone running under Android, supposedly one of the thinnest such devices in the world, namely the Ascend P6.

A new photo with the handset is now available for your viewing pleasure, courtesy of @evleaks. The Huawei Ascend P6 has been already confirmed by Huawei, yet an official announcement on the smartphone has yet to be made. The phone is expected to land on shelves with a metallic frame, a 6.2mm thin body, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor inside, and Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system loaded on top.

The device is also said to sport 8GB of internal memory, as well as with Huawei’s Emotion UI loaded on top of Android. The handset might become official on July 18, rumor has it.

ASUS Dual-Band 1900 Mbps Router

Despite 750 Mbps being considered high on the performance scale of dual-band wireless routers, ASUS has gone well beyond that mark. Beyond 200% even.

The reason? AiRadar beamforming technology, which increases connection strength and range by 150%.  And since there are two bands, the overall increase grows cumulatively as well, hence the transfer speed of 1900 Mbps. USB connectors are added as well, to allow any device connected to the network to access extra files. One could, for instance, plug in an external HDD with a video and/or music library and listen to it or watch it on tablets, phones, PCs, media players, Smart TVs, etc.

Price-wise, I'm thinking around $200 / €200, but don't quote me on it. It might end up higher (I doubt it could possibly go below, given the ludicrous performance).

Microsoft Showcases Windows 8.1 Enterprise Build 9415, Start Button Included

As you most likely know if you’re a Microsoft enthusiast, Microsoft will soon launch the new Windows 8.1 update, together with a Start button that’s supposed to make the operating system more familiar.

The company used the TechEd 2013 conference to show a demo of Windows 8.1 Enterprise build 9415, a preview version of the operating system specifically aimed at businesses. As you can see from this photo captured from the live stream by WinBeta, a Start button is also included in the build, which means that the preview version supposed to go live on June 26 will most likely pack this feature too.

In addition, the Redmond-based tech giant has also revealed some of the features to be implemented in the Enterprise version of Windows 8.1, so you can check more details about it on previous post.

MSI Launches Three Mini-ITX LGA1150 Motherboards

Micro-Star International has a booth in Taipei, Taiwan, at Computex 2013. There, among other things, it has introduced three mini-ITX motherboards.

They are called Z87I, H87I, and B85I. Obviously, the chipsets they use are Z87, H87 and B85. The first two both have 4-phase VRM with cooling, Gigabit Ethernet, a PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot (one each), 24-pin and 4-pin power connectors, two full-size DDR3 DIMM memory slots, 8-channel audio, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. The only advantages that the Z87I has over its sibling is a second Gigabit Ethernet port and CPU overclocking support.

As for video connectivity, MSI settled for DVI and HDMI. As for the B85I, it has much the same features, but 6-channel audio instead of 8-channel, no VRM heatsink, and no wireless. All three LGA1150, Haswell-ready mainboards have six USB 3.0 ports and some USB 2.0 connectors.
