1. Samsung Galaxy S6 release:
Samsung officially announced its Galaxy release to be held on March 1 at Barcelona (Mobile World Congress). The S6 is said to come feature packed and is much anticipated to compete with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It is rumoured to run, instead of the Snapdragon, its own processor, possibly called Exynos, and have 4 GB of RAM, a 5.3” display and (one rumour suggests) edge screen/s like the Galaxy Note Edge.
2. Raspberry Pi 2 and Windows 10:
The Raspberry Pi is a $35 computer chip. The first generation Model B came with a single core ARM processor, 512 MB RAM, 2 USB Ports, 1 HDMI out, Ethernet and a 3.5mm jack: in the size of a credit card. It changed the way computers were used in industries, robots, and for educational processes.
Raspberry Pi released its next gen Pi 2 Model B with a 6x faster 900MHz Cortex A7 processor and 1 GB of RAM. Most important of all, Raspberry Pi 2 will now officially run the Windows 10 - a custom made version created by Microsoft in collaboration with the Pi developers. And it will be free for download and use.
Raspberry Pi’s popularity comes from the fact that it can run over nine OS’s, mostly versions of Linux and can be extremely powerful for programming. With Windows 10, Raspberry Pi 2 expands the possibilities of its use. Seriously, who wouldn’t want a Windows 10 computer of $35?
3. Project Ara update:
The Project Ara is by far the most innovative phone, a phone without limits.
The story first started in Jan 2013 with Dave Hakkens idea of "a phone worth keeping” and named it Phonebloks. (Read more about Phonebloks in my previous article). Anyway, Phonebloks is now working with Google on Project Ara: a modular phone where you can literally alter components of the phone to your requirements. Its like Lego for a phone.
Project Ara has gone far from where it began. With partnership from Sennheiser, Blocks, ChipDesign, AT&S and many more, Project Ara is now coming up as a working phone with modules from various companies. Best of all, Ara is coming this year, with beta testing starting in Puerto Rico in a few months.
Again, there is a lot to improve, loads to make and even more to test, however, Google’s determination and Phonebloks support has taken the possibility of the ultimate phone far closer to us than ever before.
