Gadgets

Motorola’s been a lot in the news lately. The company has allegedly 8 devices under the works for us before Christmas. These include the Droid, the Droid Maxx, the Droid Turbo, the Moto S, the Moto G, the Moto X+1, the Moto X Play and finally the Moto Shamu. And that’s not where the interesting part begins. Apparently, the devices are interlinked as well, meaning that the fate of one depends on how well the other does. If the X+1 does well, then we might not be getting to see the Droid Turbo. For more, click here.

Much hype has also been created about the Motorola Shamu which is being said to be the next Google Nexus smartphone, or the Nexus 6. Until now we have quite a good idea what the Motorola Shamu will be like, courtesy of leaks all around the internet. Just a week back, a huge Motorola Shamu leak laid out the device specifications in detail. According to a GFX Bench benchmark, the Motorola Shamu will be a high end device, a path not generally taken by Nexus smartphones.

Moving to a digital place where we would perhaps no more see the physical pens and notebooks (not going to happen hopefully!), handwriting is one of the most important capabilities for cognitive growth. Samsung has released a new Galaxy Note 4 teaser focusing on the importance of handwriting and Note’s efforts of making it seamless and natural on the phablet. In the Galaxy Note 4 teaser, Samsung focuses on how important handwriting is for children.

However, handwriting is also important for elders too. It is one of the most natural and easier skills to adopt in to a lifestyle and take note of things as we go. From bad handwriting to incomprehensible words, we may not excel in this skill but it definitely is one of the most crucial skills. Easier handwriting and the availability of S Pen is one of the primary reason for many fans that go for the Note every year.

Samsung’s foray into metal with its 4.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Alpha is being considered as one step in the right direction. Draped in a high quality metal frame, Galaxy Alpha is a sleek smartphone with high-end specs. As was rumored earlier, this is actually an attempt to compete against Apple’s products which highlight using premium metal and not plastics. Apple’s iPhone 6 is expected to feature the same 4.7-inch display bringing both the tech giants almost offering similar products to the consumers.Galaxy alpha vs iphone 6

On one hand, Cupertino has this year increased the display size, on the other, Korean has introduced some metal into its smartphone – both in attempts to please their consumers and increase some more share as they go by.
