The screen of the Samsung Galaxy S III already in production?

Samsung Mobile Display has launched the production of screens using the Super AMOLED Plus HD technology that equip the Galaxy S III.

The Display of the Korean Samsung Mobile division has launched the mass production of screens technology Super AMOLED Plus HD and type "non-PenTile" that could equip a certain Galaxy S III.

A reminder, the screens fitted the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy Nexus were of type Super AMOLED HD PenTile, that they used a slightly different technology at the subpixel level, without returning to the sharp technical details, are of lesser density thus giving a less fine and precise image with colors to relatively less flattering rendering for the retina.


The new screens in production will therefore benefit from an excellent display quality, size would be "4.65 and the density of pixels would reach the 316 ppi (pixels per inch) as the Super LCD 2 of the recent HTC One X screen (against 326 on the 4 and 4 S Apple iPhone and on the Sony Xperia S 342).

Competition is tough and the output of the Galaxy S III said. According to The Verge, Samsung said the Korean daily Asia that its future Android terminal is currently testing various Korean operators. This phase, usually for a period of two months, could be shortened by Samsung who wishes to bring to market its Galaxy S III more quickly. But terminal shipping of multiple recent technologies such as LTE (4 G), a processor connectivity quad core and a new screen model, the challenge is full-bodied. It would be a pity to leave a smartphone also advanced with bugs fixed and other technical problems.

The ultra-portable Toshiba Portégé R835, last updated

The refresh of the R700 offers the Intel Sandy Bridge support, but does not alter the level of design. Toshiba aligns the entry price to compete with the Ultrabooks.

Toshiba updates its ultra-portable Portégé R700 and names R835. For the R835, Toshiba made that change the Interior to accommodate a family Sandy Bridge processor supported by 2 GB memory RAM additional. The speed of the processor chosen is substantially the same except for the Turbo Core loses 100 MHz at the crossing. But the CPU of the Sandy Bridge range are generally more efficient, and the 2 GB of RAM and more will confirm this impression.


A summary table of the Toshiba Portégé R835 specifications

Note that this computer is a ultra-portable (and not a Ultrabook), so that there is no flash drive but a disk shelf which rotates only 5400 t/m. is on this point that the new Portégé does not meet the technical specifications of Intel in Ultrabooks. For the rest, it remains in the dimensions and weight, making thus a small laptop not expensive.

Course will be replaced after the fact its hard disk to a flash drive or, for example, a Seagate Momentus 750 GB XT that contains a cache in 8 GB SLC SSD to win a little in performance and startup time. The Toshiba Portégé R835 sells between $ 800 for the entry-level model and $ 1649 for the top of range, which is equipped with a 128 GB SSD. All these new machines should arrive on the French ground a few days time that Toshiba fulfils its stocks.

Test : Ozone Onda 3HX

With the Onda 3HX, Ozone signs a gamer headset password everywhere which was missing little to office of must - have a range of affordable price, less than €60.

Ozone Onda 3HX

Ozone Onda 3HX

Removable micro
Connector complete

Lack a little bass
Medium bushings

Ozone offers a new headset called Onda 3HX since the beginning of the year. Specialist equipment for players, Ozone started in mind to propose at an accessible price headphones able to accompany the sessions of game on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, but that is as versatile and capable of ensuring a pleasant sound restitution for music listening and viewing of films.

With its branches matte plastic and its well padded headband, Onda 3HX leaves a good impression. A twisting, plastics do not crack and flexibility is required. To improve the aesthetics of this headset, Ozone was thought to integrate its logo on the outside part of the headphones, behind a metal grid. It is illuminated when the helmet is supplied (and therefore connected in USB). However, the atria are covered by pads in finely MDF tissue, which is not as comfortable as the towers of ear in imitation leather or soft tissues. Is that on the head, the helmet - rather light, 275 grams - is forgotten.

After a long braided cable (3 m), two connectors. One USB and one in Jack 3.5 mm, while in the box of the helmet are also provided an extension Jack and RCA connectors to Jack. A priori, everyone will be able connecting the Onda 3HX its equipment. Note that the microphone is not shrink but squarely removable, and it is sufficient therefore the clip in the Atrium left when is to be used, and stowed the rest time. After the small tests to use in noisy environment means still in a quite manner surrounding noise (it is omnidirectional type, but with little effective reduction of ambient noise), the voice remaining quite clear, which is the main. Good point, it does not produce annoying blast.

On cable, the remote control is located approximately 40 cm from the left ear, falling a little low. But a clip will help keep it in place on a garment for example. Stylized in the colours of the mark, the remote control offers a minimum, namely a button on / off for the microphone, sound volume control wheel and switch between PC and Game modes. Remote control a little large for what it offers, which would have earned to be finer and better position.

Ozone Onda 3HX (8).JPG40 Mm transducers are, them, placed behind the structure the helmet, which displays pretty classic features plastic (20 Hz to 20 KHz, impedance 32 Ohms, sensitivity 117 dB). Circum-aural type, this helmet isolating that very few environmental noise, and low volume, we continue to hear the clatter of the keyboard of our neighbor to Office.

Therefore, mount the volume in noisy environment to isolate themselves in listening. Generally, "gamers" typed helmets offer a sound too round, too low. Here, it is less the case, the balance found base is a little more subtle. Players who enjoy the explosions ronflent really will get a ride in the equalizer, while in most cases, basic offered sound rendering shows rather compelling stake.

However, in uses music and film, are you advised really play equalizer. Not only to improve the balance in acute and medium, high-volume, jump to the eardrums, or a slight lack of bass for the urban music or Jazz. By closing the eyes, one senses a lack of nuance and precision, making difficult the perception of difference between a same piece in MP3 256 Kbps and FLAC. On film, even finding. Especially for the blockbusters, do not hesitate to lower frequencies. Otherwise, the votes stand out well enough, clear and spare.

This is a simple stereo headset, basic design, but he knows to be more fun to listen to than what was expected. A powerful sound volume is good news, even if the neighbors will undoubtedly remind you that they then listen to your music with you. In any case, we have not succeeded to saturate the helmet, same in the stressful a bit by playing with the generator of frequency above listening to a piece.

Ozone Onda 3HX (2).JPGAt the time of conclusion, and to the Onda 3HX of Ozone in perspective with its selling price (50 to €60), the observation is rather good. Certainly it does equal not helmets to sound more balanced and precise rendering, but also significantly more expensive. Selected materials are not too cheap, finishing provides the essential and at the price of a few minutes in an equalizer, the audio rendering can be improved.

This is not the case once the headset connected to a console (PS3 and X 360 compatibility, are the reminded), but it is rather honest. Idem, held on the head not suffering from any failure, and comfort is despite pads of Atria which could have been more pleasant. Who seeks a versatile headset price is a choice defending.

Firefox is in version Windows 8 Metro

Mozilla developed, from the code of Fennec, a version of Firefox for the Metro of Windows 8 interface.

The Mozilla Foundation has undertaken the development of a version of its Firefox browser optimized for the Metro of Windows 8 interface, while on the Consumer Preview of the new Microsoft OS, launch Firefox comes down to open the Office and the classic version of the browser. Indeed, to surf in remaining in the Metro interface, there is currently no alternative to Internet Explorer... Learn that Mozilla is on the move with Firefox (as Google is with Chrome) is good news.

Firefox Windows 8 Metro (1)

Following the implementation of this work, Brian r. Bondy was able to unveil a prototype of the application Firefox for Windows 8. The Manager explained that the appearance and ergonomics of navigation are similar to what are users of Firefox for Android browser. All the main functions are present, the Web navigation tabs to the creation of a directory of favorites, etc. It is therefore on the code of Fennec (Firefox mobile version) that relies this development whose goal is first and foremost adapt Firefox to the Metro interface, thought for touch devices.

Firefox Windows 8 Metro (2) Firefox Windows 8 Metro (3) Firefox Windows 8 Metro (4)

The developer announced that there are still things to correct at the level of the interface and design, and that many elements remain integrated into the platform. After this a little more advanced prototype, Mozilla will begin to test this Firefox for Windows 8 to beta testers, and collect their opinions to improve this version. Mozilla believes that it is very important to offer a Windows 8 Metro of Firefox version for obvious competitive reasons. However, for a similar experience as complete than it is today with Firefox under Windows on a traditional PC, need still to go through the software in its basic version, and therefore by the Office.

Fiber: Free to idle...

If the Free DG confirms the ambitions of the FAI in fiber optics, the field, the evidence evoke a judgment coup.

Freebox Revolution V6While Free investments in fibre optics appear to be stopped, that confirm numerous sources, our colleagues from ZDNet ensure that Free abandoned buildings that he yet had the intention of fibrecoating and that the ISP reviews largely down its ambitions in vertical deployments. This is who will do that a little more slow down the deployment of fiber in France, while the Trustees of condominiums are more and more numerous to complain of commitments and not held by Free time.

A problem already mentioned in our columns late last year, when Free did not hesitate to return to competition projects that he could not (?) not want to ensure. Because 62% of buildings having signed an agreement for the installation of fibre optics with Free do not work start within 6 months as the yet provide the conventions. Free had then withdrawn from 50% of projects covering the fibering of the 600,000 housing where it was committed.

Today, a source of ZDNet says that Free stopped its deployments, leaving the buildings with which it had made commitments and reducing its objectives for the other, the signatures of projects with the Trustees being much less frequent. This is confirmed by documents maintained by all operators involved in fiber optics, in which one can see that March Free is more than 265.000 housing, against 592.000 in September 2011, while figures of France Telecom and SFR competitors progressing significantly. For example, in Grenoble where Free was engaged on the connection to the fibre of 10,000 housing units, everything is stopped, the ambitions now pointing at 0.

On the other hand, Free continues there where the connection him cheaper, in buildings already fiber by competition where a sharing node. Are fewer, more profitable, but this does not make the map of the deployment of fiber in France.

Free, for his part, disputed these charges, replicating be one of the players that invests the most in the fibre with 160 million euros injected in 2011, without however giving the distribution of investments in vertical deployment and those in the horizontal deployment.

Maxime Lombardini, CEO of the Iliad group, responded to the questions of ZDNet, explaining: "There is not lower our ambitions or slowdown of our investments to the contrary (...)" There are now, all operators combined, about 2 million eligible housing in the FTTH and less than 200 000 connected housing, that is to say who specifically subscribed an offer of optical fibre. "We believe that it is more important to transform the eligible housing units connected rather than seek to sign as many buildings as possible."

Google goggles in video

Google demonstrated its interactive eyewear video in augmented reality. April fool?


April first is passed, we still if Google we is not a new farce after the hour. Named "Project Glass", this video shows what is possible with these new glasses to augmented reality.

For manipulation, need to go through a smartphone under Android, these glasses to take appointments, locate on a Google Maps map, take pictures, and even take calls video to show what we see in real time...

In February, the New York Times thought that the project was in development in a secret unit called "Google X", and that this pair of glasses should be sold around$ 400. A launch date? Normally at the end of this year. Finally, only if this is not an April fool.
