Panasonic’s foray into the mirrorless digital camera realm continues with the Lumix DMC-G5, where you will find this mirrorless shooter sporting a viewfinder that has been integrated into a rather small and light body, and this particular camera is tipped to be released this coming September 13th in Japan. Sporting a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5 does seem to be shaping up to be a pretty decent Micro Four Thirds offering – on paper, at least.
Other hardware specifications include full HD movie recording capability, a Touch Pad AF for easy focusing so that you can concentrate more on framing the shot, an “eye sensor AF” feature, an SDXC memory card slot, a 3″ LCD monitor at the back and of course, the ability for you to hook this puppy up to other Micro Four Thirds lenses in your collection that will increase your chances of capturing some really stunning shots. Any takers for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5? No idea on its international pricing though. [Press Release]By Ubergizmo.

Experience a more fluid experience on Facebook if you are using Facebook for iOS, which means you are checking out the social network on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. Well, the latest version of Facebook for iOS is said to make keeping up with friends faster and easier. Installing this latest update will bump up the version number to Facebook 5.0 for iOS, making it twice as fast compared to its predecessor, especially when it comes to launching the app, scrolling through the entire news feed and opening up photos in the feed.
The Facebook team had rebuilt the app from ground up in order to achieve this effect, and stories will scroll smoothly. I have not tried it myself, but for those of you who already have, how has the experience been like for you? In fact, there is also a banner that informs you whenever there are new stories that trickle in, where all you need to do is to tap just once in order to check out the latest updates. Opening a photo requires just a tap, and you can always pull down to close it with but a single swipe.By Ubergizmo.

The Indian government has not gotten into the good books of its people in the past, and it seems as though the latest development is going to help it nudge towards that direction either. In fact, the government of the day faced a potential backlash of angry Twitter users after they ordered Internet service providers to block approximately 20 accounts which, according to officials, claim had spread scare-mongering material which had the potential to threaten national security. The Indian government threatened “appropriate and suitable action” against Twitter if it failed to remove the accounts as soon as possible.
According to several Indian newspapers, this might eventually lead to an entire ban on Twitter access in India, but this rather drastic step in theory has yet to be confirmed of happening. In fact, Twitter has not come up with a statement on their part either, never mind that there are 16 million Twitter users in India itself. One user tweeted, “Dear GOI (Government of India), Keep youre Hands Off My Internet. Else face protest”, after over 300 Web pages were blocked in the process. It is difficult to regulate what is happening online though, so it would be interesting to see just how India’s government works to contain the situation.By Ubergizmo.

Last week, we saw what could very well be the Nokia Phi smartphone, and earlier this morning, we read about the Windows Phone 8 specifications of the Nokia Phi being “confirmed” by Eldar Murtazin. Right now, what you see above could very well be a design patent from Nokia for the Nokia Phi, although there is a very strong case you could argue for it looking more like the Nokia Lumia 800 or Lumia 900. I guess it is the speaker’s location as well as the width of the screen’s edge that shows off the possibility of it being the actual Nokia Phi, but until something more official crops up, we will just have to take the image above with a grain of salt, and a very large one at that.By Ubergizmo.

If you happen to have a typical five month old infant, or at least had one, you would realize that your infant might find it rather difficult to sit up at that age, while the crawling milestone is still months away, but a few babies already have an idea on how to get around by steering their very own mobile robots. These robots were specially designed to enable babies with disabilities to get around independently, so that parents need not worry about their little one falling behind in development compared to their peers. Well, with this baby-driven robot, kids with cerebral palsy or other movement disorders will not miss out on their mental development.
Carole Dennis, a professor occupational therapy at Ithaca College in New York, said, “We think that babies with disabilities are missing an opportunity for learning that typically developing babies have.”By Ubergizmo.

What do we have here? A new Smart TV player in the market from Tencent and TCL? You just got to love the name attached to this particular Smart TV, where both companies have agreed to call it the “Ice Screen”, if you get my drift. The Ice Screen is touted to be the first large screen mobile entertainment smart cloud product in the world, where it features 26″ of viewing goodness while carrying a quartet of core applications – namely, a “large portable screen”, a “high-speed video player”, a “stylish music and photo album” and “high-definition video communications”.
The irony of its name is not lost on us, as the Ice Screen runs off the Android operating system, where it is powered by a dual-core Cortex A9 1GHz processor accompanied by a Mali 400 GPU for its graphics processing needs, 4GB RAM, a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, Wi-Fi connectivity, a microSD memory card slot, USB and HDMI connectivity, and just to make sure you do not wake up the rest of the household late into the night, a 3.5mm headphone jack. The asking price? Roughly $315 after conversion, where you can always place an online pre-order prior to its September 3rd launch. Image courtesy of Engadget. [Press Release]By Ubergizmo.

We had heard the rumor that The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro would power the next-gen LG phones, and it sure seemed plausible, but now this is official. Qualcomm has confirmed to Ubergizmo that LG has selected the quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro to power some of their next-generation handsets. We’ve played with the a tablet variant of the S4 Pro recently, and its performance were excellent. The handset version will feature global 3G and LTE capabilities.
Keep in mind that there are more than 50 LTE bands worldwide, so you will have to wait a bit longer to know which ones will be supported. However, Qualcomm’s strategy of pushing the envelope on both the pure performance and the radio technology should continue to pay handsomely. For competitors, the radio part is particularly more difficult to compete with because at the end of the day, it simply requires more resources, so the barrier of entry is very high.
Now that the processor side of things seems to have been taken care of, what do you think LG needs to do in order to climb up to the top? What features/designs do you want from LG?By Ubergizmo.
