  • Leaked screenshots show Galaxy Note 2 on AT&T and Verizon

    Leaked screenshots show Galaxy Note 2 on AT&T, may be coming to TMobile and Sprint, too

    Samsung may not have spilled the beans on US variants of the Galaxy Note II, but phablet fans have already set their sights on the usual suspects. Aiding rumors, for instance, are a collection of screenshots showing the phone running on both Verizon and Ma Bell’s networks. A BreifMobile source says that the AT&T version of the oversized handset is being tested, as are T-Mobile, Bell Canada and Sprint variations. The AT&T version is said to be a dead ringer for the international model, retaining its quad-core Exynos processor while snubbing the network’s branding. Much like Sammy itself, the source didn’t have much to say about availability — just “soon.” Can’t wait? Skip on down to the source link below to tease yourself with leaked screenshots.

  • Sony RX1 camera leaks with full-frame sensor in compact body, laws of physics slightly bent

    Sony RX1 camera leaks with fullframe sensor in compact body, laws of physics slightly bent

    Here’s something you probably didn’t expect: a compact Sony camera with a full-frame sensor. While Photoprice.ca was uncovering a treasure trove of leaked press shots that include the Alpha A99 and NEX-6, it also came across images of the RX1, whose body looks borderline pocketable yet stuffs in the same kind of sensor (and likely image quality) you’d normally reserve for pro-grade models. Several extra details reveal themselves right from the start. The RX1 is carrying a 35mm, f/2.0 lens with no apparent button to detach the lens — the included glass is probably as good as it’ll get. However, the RX1 is most definitely tuned for experienced shooters, with a toggle for macro focusing as well as dedicated controls for aperture and exposure compensation. We’re also liking that there’s a pop-up flash, a standard hot shoe for accessories and three custom settings on the mode dial. The slip doesn’t include mention of a release date or a price, but talk during the A99 slip mentioned a September 12th unveiling that wouldn’t shock us if it included multiple cameras — and we would be equally unsurprised if the RX1 carried the same high price commonly associated with other full-frame bodies.

  • VMK preps Africa-designed Elikia smartphone with $170 price, fast track for apps

    VMK preps Africadesigned Elikia smartphone with $170 price, fast track for apps

    Congo-based VMK has been blazing a trail for mobile devices in Africa: its Way-C tablet proved that the continent could go its own way without leaning on Asia or Europe. The company promised several months ago to address the same gap with smartphones, and the result is here in the form of the Elikia (“Hope”). The hardware won’t shake the cellular world’s foundations with its 3.5-inch (and 480 x 320) display, 512MB of RAM, a 650MHz processor and both 5-megapixel rear as well as front VGA cameras, but that’s not the point — at $170 US off-contract, it’s much more within the reach of Congo residents, and it even uses the unofficial Holo Launcher to bring a taste of Android 4.0 to what’s really Android 2.3 underneath. There’s also a minor revolution in app purchasing. As Google Play won’t take Congo’s credit cards, VMK has its own app store and prepaid gift cards to give the country a similar experience. You’ll have to sign on to local carriers Airtel, MTN or Warid to use an Elikia in the near future, but we’re hoping the phone expands its reach and levels the playing field.
