I currently have a Panasonic GH2 and I love it to bits. I love taking videos of my family and I know there isn’t anything around its price range that can compete with the GH2. But I always wanted in-body IS (IBIS) for my manual focus lenses (very shaky videos when hand held!) and a smaller form factor if possible. It seems Panasonic might be bringing out what I always wanted from them later in the year with the upcoming GX2 in August with its tilt-able EVF as well as IBIS!
I just got my blog back up after it being hacked somehow. (even my admin password was changed!)
Anyways, to kick things off, here are the photos that were leaked in the past few days by evleaks of the supposedly new Nokia Lumia 820 and 920 using Windows Phone 8 OS with Wirelesss charging! To me, the photos certainly look as legit as they come. So expect us to know more about them very soon when they are officially announced.
According to Engadget, this looks like the next flashship Adnroid gingerbread (2.3) phone from Samsung to supercede the Galaxy S. (or just a totally new lineup) The fact that it says 4.3-4.5″ Super AMOLED2 screen makes me drool. Add to that 1080p FullHD video playback and record and a competant 8MP camera with LED flash makes it one powerful phone. Seems like year 2011 will be a very interesting year that’s for sure. =)
This news is seriously part of the rumour mill category but it’s quite interesting nonetheless. A community forum user vertex214 has taken a photo of a seemingly internal-only Telstra (Australia’s largest telco) document that shows a mysterious device from HTC named Mozart. What is more interesting is that it will be a Microsoft Windows Phone 7 OS phone. You can clearly see that the LCD shows a Windows Phone 7 GUI which is easy to distinguish.
Also, some of the other details are as interesting. Volume critical is the objective and the timing is October. Obviously this year. Lastly but not least, it is being sold on a $49 cap which actually translated this phone into a mid-range smartphone and not a high end. (Usually in Australia, higher end phones generally are available for $69/m or higher plans initially)
I’m sure we will get to hear more about this mesterious HTC phone soon if it is indeed going to be released in around 4 months time!
