March 20, 2014 by Tom in Android Phone, Oppo with No Comments.

The Oppo Find 7 has been making waves the past day with its high-spec insides and most notably, its 50-megapixel camera. The phone runs a 5.5-inch, 2560 x 1440 display on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor but the 50MP images are created by its 13-megapixel image sensor, which then uses onboard software to stitch multiple images together to create 50-megapixel, 8160 x 6120 images. The Find 7 also records 4K video at 30 frames per second and slow-motion video at up to 100 frames per second. Even the front-facing camera's a cut above at 5-megapixels. It also has 3GB of RAM, 32GB storage and a 2000mAh battery. It's released in China on today. Via liliputing

Smartphone Market Shares – Google Takes The Lead With Apple Close Behind! Where Are The Rest?

August 23, 2011 by Alex in Android Phone, Other, Other Phone, Phone with No Comments.

According to a recent report on smartphones and who holds what within their market share (in the U.S) by market research firm, NPD Group, Inc, it's all good news for two of the better known names in the industry - Google and Apple. Things aren't looking so good for the rest however. Statistics from the report shows that Google has increased in market shares by 57.6 percent from their 33 percent of shares in Q2 2010, to 52 percent in Q2 2011. This puts Google at the top of the list, with Apple falling in at second place with their increase from last year's 22 percent to 29 percent - a 31.8 percent increase in the market share. Click after the break to read about how the other companies did. RIM, the Ontario-based company that brought us the BlackBerry did not receive as good news a

Tegra 2, Android 2.2, Smartphone – The K-Touch W700

June 13, 2011 by Alex in Android Phone, Other, Phone with No Comments.

Good things do come in small packages - the K-Touch W700 by China Unicom is a 3.8-inch Android smartphone that has some pretty formidable power behind it - a NVIDIA Tegra 2 processing chip! That's not all though, it also runs Android 2.2 (FroYo), comes with 512MB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, a 5-megapixel back camera capable of shooting 720p videos, a 0.3-megapixel front camera, FM radio and GPS. Not bad!  And lucky for us here at MP4Nation, it's being sold her in Hong Kong by local company Eprice who has tagged it at HKD$4,200. via akihabaranews

Video: The Freak Child Of Google And Apple – The Gooapple Phone

June 10, 2011 by Alex in Android Phone, Other with 1 Comment.

'Tis a dark day for avid Android fans as their beloved OS has, quite possibly against its will, been mutated into the purest form of an iOS clone yet. On the other side of the fence, Apple fans may be fretting about the Android imposter posing as their mother OS. And for the ones sitting on the fence, well... it's simply the best of both worlds! What am I banging on about? Find out after the break. The Gooapple phone: a China made iPhone 4 clone that runs Android 2.2 (FroYo) skinned to look exactly like iOS. The iPhone 4 shell has been cloned before, and there has even been attempts at imitating iOS with Android, but this one takes the poser award. Shell wise, the Gooapple sports near identical dimensions (including 9.3mm thickness) and even fits most iPhone 4 cases! As for the OS

Bmorn’s Latest Android Smart Phone – The V7 With Gingerbread

April 27, 2011 by Alex in Android Phone, Android Tablet, Bmorn, Phone, Tablet with No Comments.

Bmorn have come out with a new Android smart phone - the V7 - that looks like it could be 7-inches and will be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread (although its got the nice Honeycomb logo stamp on its back - rather misleading...). The V7 is able to support up to 1080p HD video playback, as well has Adobe Flash 10.2 and can supposedly last up to 6 hours of video playback time. There's not much else on the device other than MicroSD expansion support and OTG support, and by the look of the thing and lack of connectivity info, we're wondering whether the V7 is in fact a Gingerbread tablet as opposed to a smart phone. Let's hope more info gets released soon to clear that up. More images after the break. [gallery link="file"] via imp3

Compufon Is A Compu(ter) Fon(phone)

April 22, 2011 by Alex in Android Phone, Android Tablet, Other, Tablet with No Comments.

Compufon is an interesting device. We've had blends of tablet and smartphones before but this one literally adds the two together - and we mean literally. It is a smartphone that houses the processor and storage, that can be inserted into its tablet screen -  that obviously houses the tablet sized display as well as a battery that can also charge the smartphone. To explain the 'insert' in another way, it's just like when you insert a game cartridge into a Nintendo Gameboy... you remember! The two pieces of the single Compufon device actually depend on each other - the tablet half won't function without the heart (processor) of the smartphone and after the smartphone half has had its fill playing lone-wolf, it'll need to regain its strength (recharge its batteries) from the tablet half.

HKTDC – RK2818 Android 2.2 Lan-line Smart Phone – IT-795

April 15, 2011 by Alex in Android Phone, Other with No Comments.

The IT-795 by Skyworth is a lan-line smart phone that we saw during the HKTDC fair. It boasts Android 2.1 OS with a 2.3 (Ginrgerbread) upgrade, although the unit we saw ran 2.1. It's also powered by Rockchip's RK2818 processor, and has a 7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 800 x 480. These aren't exactly the latest things off the market, but they're not that common either so it's interesting to be able to go hands on with one. The phone also supports WiFi, 3G, VIoP and PSTN connectivity, has a MicroSD expansion slot and comes with a 2-megapixel front camera for your video calls. This was my first experience with an 'Android Internet Phone' so it was fun seeing a Youtube app and such on a lan-line phone. Its rechargeable battery also got me wondering how silly it would be if you were
