Samsung ’ s Galaxy S IV hasn ’ t even been exposed yet and information of an additional top-tier Samsung smartphone is currently threatening to take a few of its limelight. The Korea Times stated earlier today that the Korean electronics titan is busy dealing with a Galaxy Note phablet followup with a 5.9-inch show behind closed doors.
If the Korea Times ’ report is true then Samsung is taking a more measured strategy to how it scales up smartphone screen sizes — as PocketNow mentions this is (luckily?) a hair smaller sized than what some earlier reports suggested, because for a while there it looked like Samsung was considering projecting a phablet with a 6.3-inch screen. The Times ’ source likewise kept in mind that the Note III would sport an eight-core Exynos processor, a not-so-subtle reference to Samsung ’ s Exynos 5 Octa chipset.
Samsung isn ’ t the first to push up against that 6-inch barrier, and they ’ ll hardly be the last. Chinese OEM Huawei blew past it earlier this year when it unveiled the hefty Ascend Mate and its 6.1-inch display at CES, and ZTE exposed its 5.7-inch Grand Memo during Mobile World Congress. For much better or worse, the plus-sized phone trend doesn ’ t seem to be going anywhere.
In the previous I ’ ve asked how big is too huge for these kinds of phablets, however recalling that ’ s kind of a selective concern. The word “ phablet ” doesn ’ t have a generally accepted definition (it ’ s normally just made use of to describe huge honking phones) — maybe the better concern is at what point are gadgets like the Note and Grand Memo more tablet than phone?
For what it ’ s worth, Samsung and rivals like Huawei and Asus appear keen on making that kind of difference a meaningless one. The Korea Times report comes just days after Samsung pulled back the drape on its Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress — it ’ s the business ’ s smallest Note tablet to date and some variations of the device include the capability to make voice calls. Asus (maybe scooped in a fit of wordplay-induced whimsy) also flaunted its 7-inch FonePad tablet at MWC, and acclaimed its capacity to put voice calls virtually as much as its affordable cost.

Much like Porsche Design before it, this isn’t strictly the auto-maker (in this case it’s the son of the famous sports car mogul) releasing a phone. However, these are devices (three phones and a tablet) which bear the family name. Russian site Hi-Tech Mail got a good look at two feature phones (which look remarkably familiar,) the TL688 and TL820, sporting 2- and 2.4-inch displays, along with 3- and 5-megapixel cameras and 4GB and 1GB (expandable) storage respectively. Their main selling point evidently being the hand made gold plate and leather finish. There is a TL700 smartphone, too, which runs on not-so-sporty Android Gingerbread, with an unspecified Qualcomm processor, 3.7-inch 800 x 480 display and 5-megapixel shooter. This one ups the flash-factor some, boasting diamond processed metal and “elements” of crocodile skin.
The tablet is known as the Lamborghini L2800 and has a 9.7-inch 1024 x 768 resolution screen, 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB onboard storage (expandable). How much does all this sense-defying technology cost? Well, the feature phones start at 60,000 rubles, (about $ 1,829) or you can snap up the Android for 30,000 more (about $ 2,743) and treat yourself to the L2800 tablet for a reasonable 75,000 rubles (about $ 2,286). Of course, you’ll have to drive to Russia to get your hands on them, sometime in late August, but we’re guessing if you’re in the market for one of these, that’ll barely dent the plastic anyway.

Remember that curious $ 100, ICS-touting, Novo 7 tablet we saw back at the beginning of the month? Until now, the Ainovo (aka Ainol) branded device was a bit of a gambler’s punt, with some Chinese sites charging a suspicion-arousing $ 60 shipping fee. Now, however, the odds are looking slightly better, with some US-centric retailers listing the 1GHz MIPS-based XBurst CPU slate as available for pre-order. With Gingerbread and Honeycomb versions still out there, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled and check exactly what you’re getting. But, if you still really want some of the seven inch Android 4.0 budget-slab goodness (albeit for $ 19 more than initially thought), check the source links for more info.

No matter how tempting the specs on Lenovo’s leaked 10.1-inch tablet are, you might prefer something fairly more portable just for the sake of your regular pockets. Well, it looks like Lenovo’s got you covered, too. Freshly delivered from the same anonymous tipster are a stash of photos depicting a dual-core 5-inch Android tablet, which will apparently be marketed under the usual LePad brand in China as well as an upcoming IdeaTab brand for elsewhere (to help differentiate tablets from the IdeaPad laptop line).
Not much else is known about this device, but the photos below do show a micro-USB port, HDMI output, a front-facing camera and presumably three capacitive buttons (which could mean it won’t be launching with Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich). There’s a strong resemblance to the Dell Streak 5 here if you ask us, though despite the earpiece-like feature next to the front camera, our source couldn’t confirm whether this tablet packs voice call capability (like the Galaxy Note and Pantech Vega No.5). Anyhow, stay tuned as we dig for more info.

It’s been almost two years since we first got a peek at the specs on RED’s EPIC-X, and the 5K-shooting, roughly $ 30,000 rig is just now shipping out to customers. That’s not terribly shocking considering the company’s notoriously long development cycles and, if you ordered one, you should be too excited about getting a new toy to worry about how long it took to build. Lets just hope the first batch of folks to start capturing gorgeous footage with this thing have a little more luck than Mark Pederson — RED can’t be handing out $ 100,000 bounties every time it releases a new product.
For the past 18 months, Ness Computing has been very quietly working on some new technology that they believe will be the next big thing in search. It’s a new, highly personalized search engine that they hope to launch in the coming weeks. But first, they’re happy to announce they’ve been given $ 5 million in funding to fulfill this vision.
Vinod Khosla and Ramy Adeeb of Khosla Ventures led the Series A round, with participation from Alsop Louie Partners, TomorrowVentures, Bullpen Capital, a co-founder of Palantir Technologies, and some angel investors. The Alsop-incubated company is sometimes described as the “Palantir for fun,” Ness CEO and co-founder Corey Reese says.
“If you use search products today there’s plenty of things for solving objective inquiries. But what about things that are more subjective?,” Reese says. “What about, ‘what’s best for me?’. Is there a concert this weekend that I should go to?,” he continues. What Ness is building will attempt to answer these inquires.
He notes that over the past 18 months, they’ve pulled together a team of 15 to work on this. Part of it has involved building what is essentially a recommendation engine that uses machine learning when looking at social data from Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Gowalla, and other places. The other part is the actual search engine to serve up useful results based on these signals.
Reese calls this combination their “Likeness Engine”. This name comes from both your “liking” of things online, and your digital “likeness”. In fact, this is where the “Ness” in their name also comes from. With the Likeness Engine in mind, Ness secured the likeness.com domain, where you can sign up now to learn more about the company when they’re ready to talk a bit more.
“Google did a great job organizing the world’s data, but we’re about organizing opportunities,” Reese says. He notes that they’re in a much better position to do this than someone like Google because there are so many different social signals out there, and politics prevents Google from access all of them (like some Facebook data, for example). Because they’re independent, when a new service, like Google+ emerges, Ness can quickly add that data to their mix, Reese notes.
Further, Ness’ first product will focus on the mobile space.
“Unlike lasers, HPM beams don’t need a lot of accuracy. With a fan [of HPM energy] you can target 10-30 small boats. If you can knock out 50-75% of the engines in a swarm, you can then concentrate on the remainder with lasers or kinetic [cannons].”
To develop better defenses against such attacks, the contractor received $ 150,000 from the Air Force to test-fire microwaves at military computers. No word on whether said defenses involve generous use of tin foil.

“Peel-and-stick Instant Pocket gives you a pocket so you can mingle with crowds, go for a run or work in the yard and keep important things safe.” Because when I think insta-pocket, I think “mingle.” $7/3. [Solutions via 7Gadgets/OhGizmo!] More »

In a world full of stylish pocket camcorders, there are few reasons to recommend Coby’s ho-hum Snapp series, which has only just now managed the transition from cheap plastic junk to tasteful Flip knockoff with today’s introduction of the CAM3001, CAM4505 and CAM5001 Snapp HD. Recording 640 x 480 footage over MJPEG, the cheaper two models are still not much better than your average VGA webcam, and with only megabytes of internal storage, all three will require a sizeable memory card to capture any real content. But when you consider the price of these things — Amazon shows preorder prices of $30 and $50 for the budget cams and $80 for the 720p CAM5001 HD — you might yet find yourself combing desk drawers for that spare SDHC card.
