T-Mobile’s G2: A Flawed Beauty

The HTC G2 is the successor to 2008′s much ballyhooed HTC G1 (aka the “Google Phone”), the very first Android smartphone released in the United States. It’s also the first T-Mobile phone built to take advantage of the carrier’s new, faster HSPA+ 3.5G network; it can handle theoretical throughput…

Intel’s 32nm Medfield SoC specs and benchmarks leak

Medfield

Intel’s Medfield may still be a ways from breaking into the smartphone and tablet market, but we’re finally starting to get some concrete details on its specs and capabilities. VR-Zone got the nitty gritty on Chipzilla’s first true SoC and it looks almost ready to run with the big dogs. A reference tablet, running at 1.6GHz with 1GB of RAM (which also packs Bluetooth, WiFi and FM radio) was put through some Android benchmarks and held it’s own against a Tegra 2 and a Snapdragon MSM8260 — which pulled a 7,500 and 8,000 in Caffeinemark 3, respectively. The admittedly higher clocked Atom scored an impressive 10,500, though power consumption on the pre-production chips was a bit higher than anticipated. At idle, the fledgling Medfield was sucking down 2.6W and spiking to 3.6W under load. Ultimately Intel hopes to cut those numbers to 2W at idle and 2.6W while pushing out HD video — not far off from current-gen ARM SoC. Lets not forget though, benchmarks only tell part of the story — we’ll be waiting to see working hardware before declaring a victor.

Windows Phone Will Target Smartphone Midmarket

Next up for Windows Phone: attacking the middle range of the market.

“We are dramatically broadening the set of price points in Mango-related phones that we can reach,” Andy Lees, president of Microsoft’s Windows Phone division, told the audience during the Asia D conference Oct. 19. “That’s particularly important because going lower down in price point opens up more addressable market.”

Until this point, Microsoft had positioned Windows Phone as more of a competitor to high-end devices such as Apple’s iPhone and the Motorola Droid. But Microsoft’s traditional aim with any of its products has been to capture as big an audience as possible, so a thrust toward the smartphone midmarket is perhaps inevitable.

For a couple of months, rumors have circulated about a stripped-down Windows Phone OS code-named Tango, aimed at lower-cost hardware and developing markets such as India and China. Back in August, Mary Jo Foley wrote on her All About Microsoft blog about two new Tango releases that could expand Windows Phone into new markets and load onto those cheaper devices.

At the moment, Microsoft is mostly concerned with pushing Mango, a wide-ranging update with some 500 tweaks and features, onto Windows Phone. That’s happening in conjunction with a host of new manufacturers, including Nokia and Samsung, prepping a host of new Windows Phone devices. Although outside research firms generally place Windows Phone’s share of the smartphone market far behind that of the iPhone and Android, Microsoft hopes that the combination of boosted software and new manufacturing partners can give the platform the momentum it needs to seize a bigger portion for itself.

One of those partners, Nokia, reportedly plans to show off its first Windows Phone devices at Nokia World in London, due to start Oct. 26.

That information also came from Lees, who told the Asia D conference Oct. 19: “Next week it’s going to be Nokia World, where they’re going to announce their phones and how they’re going to make the most out of the Windows Phone opportunity.”

It’ll be interesting to see what rolls out. By tossing out homegrown mobile operating systems such as Symbian in favor of Windows Phone, Nokia is betting its existence on Microsoft software allowing it to push back against Android and other competitors. I’ll bet anything that Nokia’s push will eventually involve Windows Phone devices targeted at that midrange. The only question is when Nokia CEO Stephen Elop will try to make that happen.

RockMelt hits beta 5, makes Chrome’s Omnibox a gateway to Facebook

RockMelt Beta 5

Last year, when RockMelt picked up where Flock left off, deeply tying social services into the browser interface, we were understandably a bit skeptical. But, just over 13 months later the tricked out Chrome variant is still kicking and tacking on new features. The latest beta, version five, turns the Omnibox into a full-fledged Facebook portal, allowing you to upload photos, initiate chats and load profiles without first having to launch the site. The update also sports a spruced up new tab page. We won’t spoil all the surprises though, hit up the source link to download it for yourself.

Switched On: The Year of Reversal

But the dramatic reversals we saw in 2011 made even some of those decisions look tame by comparison.

Growing Up Geek: Steven Troughton-Smith

Welcome to Growing Up Geek, an ongoing feature where we take a look back at our youth and tell stories of growing up to be the nerds that we are. Today, we have a special guest: programmer, app designer, artist and geek, Steven Troughton-Smith.

I was born to be an artist. I was always the kind of kid that doodled when bored in class; I used to spend hours creating the most intricate symmetrical robots or plotting maps for world domination. Somewhere along the way I realized that the thing I really wanted to design was software, and I’d really have to learn to start programming to be able to make what I saw in my head exist.

As a child of four I was exposed for the first time to a computer — a Macintosh IIsi. When I wasn’t playing SimCity 2000 or Spelunx, I was dabbling in Photoshop 3.0. I was fascinated by the Mac and would spend hours learning all the intricacies of how it worked. I discovered an Amstrad 286 in our attic at some stage — my mom’s old work computer — and set to work trying to figure out the arcane incantations to show something more interesting than a DOS prompt onscreen. (Eventually I found some Windows 2.03 floppy disks about the house and forcibly upgraded it — it wasn’t much better off for my efforts). Then, in 1998, I met RealBASIC.

Go Daddy pulls support for SOPA amidst backlash, too late to satisfy Wikipedia

It looks like the prospect of widespread boycott was more than Go Daddy was willing to face as a result of its support for the Stop Online Piracy Act — the domain name registrar announced today that it has officially withdrawn its support for the controversial bill. In a statement, the company said that “fighting online piracy is of the utmost importance, which is why Go Daddy has been working to help craft revisions to this legislation – but we can clearly do better,” adding that it will support new legislation “when and if the Internet community supports it.” That move proved to be too late for a number of prominent Go Daddy customers, however, including Wikipedia, which coincidentally announced today that it will be moving all of its domain names away from Go Daddy due to its stance on SOPA. Go Daddy’s full announcement is after the break.
