What You MEGATech Missed: Smarter Phone Edition

We post a lot of content every week on MEGATechNews, so that’s why we do these roundups every Sunday. You might have missed something big and this week has a lot to do with smartphones.

For example, Android enthusiast Dylan Duarte rounds up the Google Nexus Prime rumors leading up to the official unveiling later this month. It might also be known as the Nexus Galaxy or Galaxy Nexus, but this Android phone will be the first with Ice Cream Sandwich.

Are you excited? Is the rumored 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display too big for your tastes?

Naturally, the other huge news that dropped this week was the announcement of the Apple iPhone 4S. This wasn’t quite as exciting as a true iPhone 5, but it’s still a new iPhone.

Michael Lim gives you the full rundown of what you can expect from the iPhone 4S, including the A5 dual core processor and the upgraded 8-megapixel camera. The Siri voice-based personal assistant is an interesting innovation too, but it’ll be interesting to see how well it works in a real world environment.

It’s sad that Steve Jobs passed away so soon after the iPhone 4S event. We’d like to extend our condolences to his friends, family, and colleagues.

Speaking of smartphones, Beth Snyder has come across another cool way how these devices are changing our lives. Tired of fumbling around for that old garage door opener? Fumble no longer.

Have a look at the Craftsman AssureLink garage door opener. The difference? You can program your smartphone and use the associated app to open and close your garage door. You don’t even need to be in range for it to work!

Just make sure that your cell phone doesn’t run out of battery before you get home. Otherwise, you’ll actually have to get out of the car to get into the garage.

Okay, so not everything has to do with Android, iOS, and smartphones. The computing side of the equation is also being discussed and that comes courtesy of one James White.

He put up an article describing the Hyper 212 EVO and CM Storm Trooper Case from Cooler Master. The former is a product update to the original Hyper 212 CPU cooler and offers a continuous set of fines, more air flow control, and PWM fans with anti-vibration pads. Shown above is the CM Storm Trooper computer case with its top-mounted 200mm fan slot, carry handle, and plenty of ports.


That’s another week in tech. Stay tuned for more each and every day on MTN!
