More Details About the Mysterious Nokia Devices Emerge

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

They did not stop there though as  they have now revealed some more information about two more mysterious Nokia devices.

According to them, these Nokia handsets are 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. Evleaks also mentioned that the device will feature a Siri-like voice assistant and both will come with Windows Phone 8.1.

Evleaks 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.

AT&T has slashed its price to $99.99 with a two-year service agreement with the carrier. It is also available for $584.99 if you want to buy it off-contract.

A user on the WPCentral forum named Michelle has managed to get a Nokia Lumia 1520 from an AT&T in Greensboro, North Carolina. How much? For only $540 and what’s strange is the AT&T store sold her the handset when its arrival date is still almost a week away. Anyway, lots of users thought she’s just trolling around, but she then 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.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 comes with gigantic 6-inch displa, a Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.2GHz with 2GB RAM, 16GB storage (at least for the AT&T model) with a microSD card slot, a 20MP camera with Pureview and Carl Zeiss, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, and runs Windows Phone 8 Update 3 out of the box.

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.
