More Details About the Mysterious Nokia Devices EmergeNot too long ago, the ever reliable @evleaks tweeted some mysterious code names for the upcoming Nokia devices. They further elaborated that out of those names, Goldfinger and Moneypenny are going to be the first Windows Phone 8.1 (Blue) devices.

If you’re thinking that @evleaks, the notorious leaker will stop here, you’re mistaken. The near-to-accurate leaker has now revealed some more information about two more mysterious Nokia devices.

evleaks added that one of the upcoming Nokia handsets is going to be a flagship imaging device, we’re assuming he’s referring to the successor of Nokia Lumia 1020 that comes with an impressive 41MP camera with optical image stabilization. Moreover, there’s another device which will feature a Siri-like voice assistant. Both of these devices will come with Windows Phone 8.1.

He has not revealed the names of these two devices, and left it for the guessing game for the rumor mill. But, we’re pretty sure that we’ll get more detals soon from @evleaks.

Nokia Lumia 1520 Priced At A$899 in Australia

Nokia Lumia 1520 Priced At A$899 in AustraliaNokia Lumia 1520 will be available for sale in the United States next week for $99 with a two-year service agreement with AT&T. In the US, AT&T has the exclusive rights to sell the device. If you are residing at the other corner of the World, you could get your hands-on the unlocked version of the device for a whopping A$899. Although there’s no confirmation on when it will hit the shelves in Australia officially or via retailers.

According to the guys over at MyNokiaBlog, an Australian retailer Harvey Norman is listing Nokia Lumia 1520 for A$899 in its inventory system. The said retailer priced the Nokia Lumia 1020 41MP camera phone for $833, so the price for the device seems quite reasonable.

Mobicity is currently taking pre-orders for the phablet for $959.95, which is higher than the leaked Harvey Norman’s price. However, the MobiCity didn’t reveal any exact shipment date or the time period when customers can expect the package to arrive at their doorsteps.

While there’s no information about the availability of the Nokia Lumia 1520 from Australian carriers, it should be noted that it will make its way to Australian shores in the next coming weeks and users might be able to get the phablet at a lower subsidized price. Nokia mentioned at the launch event that it will also hit Hong Kong, Singapore, U.S., China, U.K., France, Germany, Finland and other European markets by the end of 2013, with other markets to follow.

A user on the WPCentral forum named Michelle has managed to get a Nokia Lumia 1520 from an AT&T kiosk in Greensboro, North Carolina at a discounted price of $540. It’s kind of strange how the AT&T store sold him the handset when its arrival date is still almost a week away. Anyway, lots of users thought she’s just trolling around, but she posted a snapshot of the AT&T receipt as well as a number of unboxing images of the Nokia Lumia 1520. She even visited another store to see if they can sell her a unit. Surprisingly, they did, but at its official price of $584.

Acer Launches “Your Home Cinema Package”

K335The global tech giant’s exciting new promo brings high-tech cinema experience straight to your home

MANILA, Philippines—October 2013—Global tech giant Acer is set to bring high-tech cinema experience to Filipinos’ homes nationwide as it announces the “Your Home Cinema Package,” an exciting new promo featuring two of the latest Acer LED projectors plus freebies for total home theater enjoyment.

The promo, which runs from October 14 to November 14, 2013, bundles the palm-sized but powerful K135 LED projector or the sleek, high-brightness K335 LED projector with free products that include an Acer Iconia B1 Android handheld computing device, an Acer projector screen, and an Acer USB presenter with laser pointer—all for as low as P34,000.

Engineered with Acer’s hallmark design and technological innovations, both projectors offer great mobility with sharp, stunning visuals, as well as wireless connectivity options and highly durable, environment-friendly performance. At a time when big-screen LED TVs are finding their way into Filipino living rooms and home theaters, these projectors serve as a much more practical (and easy-to-setup) alternative, while delivering the same cinematic visual performance on an upsized screen.

Apart from enabling design flexibility, the LED lamps of both the Acer K135 and K335 also allow instant on/off capability, better color saturation, freedom from hazardous mercury vapor and halogen gases, and a lamp lifespan of up to a whopping 30,000 hours—good for 41 years, at a rate of 2 movies per day.

The Acer K135: surprisingly small, visually stunning

Only 1.6-inch thin and .43 kg light, the Acer K135 is an ultra-portable 500 ANSI lumens LED projector with an impressive feature set to match its deceptive pocket-friendly design. It can project a 62-inch image from 2 meters with a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution, and uses Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) technology to support multimedia playback from a connected smartphone or tablet device.

The K135 also enables wireless projection through the Acer eDisplay app, which is designed to support screen mirroring, split-screen viewing, multimedia compatibility (photos, videos, music, PDF, Office files), and direct projection from Android 4.2 / Windows 8.1 devices. For extra-versatile connectivity, the LED projector also has built-in HDMI, USB, microSD, and analog RGB ports.

The Acer K335: a presenter’s brilliant all-in-one kit

The Acer K335 LED projector is an all-in-one kit perfect for high-impact projections at home or in the office. Also travel-sized, with dimensions no bigger than a magazine, it has a 1,000 lumens brightness, a WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution, and dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1, with deep, saturated colors perceived as brighter and more brilliant by the human eye.

Like the K135, the HD-ready Acer K335 also has advanced MHL technology, wireless DLNA connectivity, multimedia compatibility (with built-in Office and PDF Document Reader support), and screen mirroring capability. Its diverse connection panel includes VGA, composite, HDMI, analog RGB, SD, and USB and mini-USB ports—thus ensuring a wide range of options for enjoying and sharing digital content.

Through the Acer “Your Home Cinema Package” promo, every purchase of either the K135 or K335 comes with one Acer Iconia B1, a 7-inch Android handheld computing device for reliable everyday computing performance in a lightweight, portable design. Also included in the package is a 25-inch projector screen, plus a free Acer USB presenter control with laser pointer.

All these serve as the foundation of a vibrant new home entertainment experience for the Filipino family. With the Acer “Your Home Cinema Package”—and maybe a bag of popcorn—going to the movies can mean staying at home and watching the biggest, brightest films without having to leave at all.

Limited Edition Blackberry Z10 Now Available for First 250 Developers Who Successfully Submitted an AppThings have changed at Blackberry. With the appointment of a new CEO, things might head to a good start for the Canadian manufacturer, at least we hope so. Anyway, if you remember, the Canadian OEM asked developers earlier this year to submit their applications in the Blackberry AppWorld. RIM held many events, approaching various developers to create apps for their OS, may be to reach the 100,000 apps milestone. Surprisingly, they did reach their goal in May 2013.

If you were one of the first 250 developers who submitted an app in the Blackberry App World and got it approved, you’d be glad to know that Blackberry is sending out emails to those developers informing them that they will receive a new limited edition Blackberry Z10 with a fresh coat of paint. WOW! The limited edition Z10 comes with a shiny new red color paint job.

Before you get excited, its specs is the same as its normal version. Additionally, due to shipping restrictions, developers in many countries will not be able to get the shiny red Blackberry Z10. The list includes Belarus, China, Cuba, Indonesia, Iran, North Korea, Malaysia, Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic, Thailand, and Vietnam.
