The phone is not enough. It should also be a tablet, the screen to watch videos and read magazines. Google has just launched in San Francisco in its conference for software developers, the tablet Nexus 7. Unlike Apple and Microsoft, Google distributed birdseed manufacturers. It will not make the device itself, but following his political Chromebook laptops or mobile phones, left to other manufacturing. If her favorite mobiles is Samsung, the tablet rests with Asus.
Another difference for almost everyone. The dimension of 7 inches, versus the 10 that Apple has imposed and followed most, but Samsung, which launched its first version in this small format, which has the advantage of considerably lighten the weight of the instrument: only 340 grams, the half an iPad. And the price … also: U.S. $ 199. Will be sold in mid year in this country, in the UK and Canada. Later arrive in Spain.Always with a $ 25 voucher to spend it in applications or download movies or music.
Google’s bid for this format was invented Samsung can make a definite contribution to the small tablet, which fits into the pocket of a jacket and is much more manageable electronic reader and in situations that are not being stretched in a sofa. You can drive with one hand.
Entry sounds like a slap to the jurisdiction of the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet. The Nexus 7, and it comes with all the might of Google behind it, its Chrome browser, your Youtube adapted to the dimensions of the tablet and high definition, like the Gmail mail.
At the same time, Google is launching the device Q, for $ 299. Aspires to be the home media center from which to control all content of any device in the house and pass from one screen to another.
On the side of software, Google has announced Jelly Bean, the new version of Android operating system. You are almost 15 versions in less than five years. The latest Ice Cream, which preceded Honeycomb (indeed, diabetics might not work in Google) is barely 7% of the units.65% of the Android circulating in the world continue with the system Gingerbread (or version 2.3), and the new Jelly Bean is 4.1.
This dispersion of operating systems, quasi-military unit against Apple, Google does not worry because ultimately appear that there are no major compatibility issues.
Among the contributions of Jelly Bean is a greater battery life. If you get that, it’s worth the change. Hugo Barra also in charge of singing the praises of the new operating system promises better performance mobile applications and especially with graphics.
At Jelly Bean keyboard can dictate and keyboard makes text without an Internet connection. Then when you connect it to the NFC manda.Gracia apart from pay, distribute content, photos, music or text.
Jelly Bean adds voice search. That is, the same as Siri. And Google Now, real-time information, combining the agenda with where you are. Google will calculate for you how long you take to transport, time changes, traffic.And alternative routes, but does not specify if only for the United States.If you were paying attention to developer conferences a week ago, Microsoft and Apple for two, everything sounds the same or very similar.Jelly Bean is already in mid-July in the Galaxy phones Moto Nexus and Xoom.
The battle continues, and none of the contestants give up any part of the pie, but Google ended the show in peace, with the ascent to the stage of Sergey Brin, co-founder Larry Page search with, to speak not of the tablet or mobile, but glasses. Brin is determined that people go through life with their gafascam, capturing images and videos across the world.Hurry, he said, to order some. They cost $ 1,500 and come next year.Please do not do queues. is the whim of Brin.
