Nokia's latest flagship phone, the Lumia 930, is currently the best-built Windows phone out there. It was released earlier this year and received good reviews. It still is far off from being the no. 1 phone on the market, running behind the Android and iOS phones.
Looking at the features of the 930, it sports a 5.0-inch screen with a full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. The touch screen is an AMOLED capacitive screen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The body is made of both a polycarbonate backing and a glass front, separated by an aluminum band. The back and front faces taper into the aluminum frame giving it a smooth profile.
The phone is run by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.2GHz Krait 400 processor and an Adreno 330 graphics chip. The 930 has a fast processing speed and rarely slows down. It also has 32GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM. The storage cannot be extended by a microSD card however, as the 930 does not have an SD card slot. more >>
Apple has been preparing for the release of the new Macbook Air with Retina Display by bringing down the prices of current stock drastically in hopes of selling it before the new batch of Macbook Airs come in retail. Some retailers even have been providing coupons for student discounts on existing Macbook Pros and Airs.
The new Macbook Air is speculated to come in two variants, much like the older Macbooks. Apple is focusing their resources on putting the 12-inch Macbook Air into production. The company is collaborating alongside Intel to provide them with the new 14-nm Broadwell chips, which will be installed in the new Macbook Airs.
Intel had experienced a delay in their production lines earlier in the year causing Apple to push their release of the new Macbook Airs a few months back. The company has announced, however, that production for the Broadwell chips has now continued and will be shipping before the holiday season. more >>
