Earlier this month, we reported that according to the rumors, the Xiaomi Phone 2 could be making its debut on the 16th of August, today. Well it seems like the rumors were spot on as the Xiaomi Phone 2 has officially been announced in Beijing. It is expected to be released in October on Chinese carriers such as China Unicom and China Telecom and will retail at 1,999 Yuan (~$313). No word on whether it will make its way stateside or to the rest of the world, and based on its specs we suspect that many users outside of China wouldn?t mind getting their hands on the device.
Featuring a 4.3? 720p IPS display, the Xiaomi Phone 2 will be powered by Qualcomm?s Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core chip and will come with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. It will sport a 28mm 2MP front-facing camera, and a 27mm f/2.0 8MP BSI rear-facing camera. It will come with a 2,000mAh battery although it can also be upgraded to 3,000mAh but will come at the cost of an added thickness of 2mm. To top it all off, the Xiaomi Phone 2 will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean preinstalled and will also come with 5GB of free online cloud storage.By Ubergizmo.

Phablets seem to be the in thing these days, and if you?re wondering what that is, it?s basically a phone + tablet, i.e. a device that blurs the line between smartphone and tablet. The Samsung Galaxy Note is a perfect example of such a device. However if you?re the sort that believes that 5.3?-5.5? is still too small for a tablet, then this concept design by Patrik Eriksson might be worth checking out. Pictured above is a folding device that when folded together resembles a smartphone. However when unfolded, it becomes a tablet thanks to its flexible OLED display that hides the hinge in the middle. This allows users to slip the device into their pockets and transform it into a full sized tablet when needed. We?re not sure why the designer chose Sony as the brand, perhaps he was inspired by the Tablet P, who knows? In any case foldable devices have been done before, like the Sony Tablet P and the Kyocera Echo, but we admit that we like Eriksson?s design and the use of a flexible OLED. What do you guys think? Would you be interested in such a device, or would you rather keep your smartphone and tablet separate?By Ubergizmo.

Back in July, we reported on the ChargeCard Kickstarter project which essentially lets you connect your iPhone to your computer via charger that?s about the size of a credit card. This is highly convenient due to its shape and size that basically allowed users to slip the charger into their wallet and bring it with them wherever they go. Unfortunately its limitation was the fact that it was designed only for iOS devices in mind as it utilized the 30-pin dock connector. Well the good news for non-iOS users out there is that the folks behind the original ChargeCard are back with a new Kickstarter project, this time for a ChargeCard with a micro USB that will charge Android and Blackberry devices (just to name a few). The rest of its features remains the same as its iOS counterpart. The project has long since surpassed its goal of $50,000 with 11 days to go, so if you?d like to get your hands on the micro USB version of the ChargeCard, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.By Ubergizmo.

Back in November of 2011, a Kickstarter project for a speaker called HiddenRadio was launched. The good news is that the project has become a reality and the first 10,000 units have begun to ship to its Kickstarter supporters. The good news is that if you did not get in on the Kickstarter action back in 2011, you can still pre-order yourself a unit via its website where it is currently being priced at $149.95 ($189.95 after 30th September), and is also available in three colors ? metallic silver, graphite black and pure white.
For those wondering what the HiddenRadio speaker is about, it?s basically a wireless speaker that will pair to any device with Bluetooth connectivity, i.e. smartphones, tablets, laptops. What makes it unique from other wireless speakers is its design where to turn it on, all you?d have to do is twist the top. Adjusting the volume is also a matter of twisting the top higher for louder sound, or lower it for a softer sound. It also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, a rechargeable battery and built-in AM/FM radio capabilities. So, any takers?By Ubergizmo.

Blizzard?s StarCraft 2 has enjoyed a huge amount of success, and if you?re looking forward to the next expansion, Heart of the Swarm, Blizzard has announced that the beta for the upcoming expansion is expected to take place ?very soon?. The beta is expected to be sent out to a handful of players, such as those who helped test patch 1.5, pro gamers, the press (like us, hopefully!) and will basically beta test the multiplayer experience. Blizzard is also expected to add more testers to the mix over time and the good news is that you can opt in for the beta if you like. The instructions can be found on Blizzard?s website in the source link below, but it should be noted that opting in for the beta does not guarantee you a spot, but at least you?ll be on the list! So, who can?t wait to get their hands on the Heart of the Swarm beta?By Ubergizmo.

A couple of days ago, we reported that the folks at 9to5 Mac have drawn up a rendering of Apple?s rumored iPad mini based on the leaked specs and schematics of the device so far. Well if you?re looking for a slightly cleaner and more ?official? looking rendering, designer Maurizio Vitale has come with several 3D renderings of what the iPad mini could look like. Much like the earlier renderings, this design is based on the information that is available out there. Granted that the information could merely be rumors and have no substance to them, we guess it doesn?t hurt to see what the iPad mini could look like assuming the rumors turn out to be true! As expected, this particular rendering features a smaller looking iPad that is reminiscent of the iPod touch with thinner bezels, although we have to admit that it looks pretty good. No word if and when Apple will be announcing such a device, but rumors have pegged it for a possible September announcement alongside Apple?s next-gen iPhone.By Ubergizmo.
