It’s finally here. The god of all Androids, Google’s flagship device, the LG Nexus 5.

I finally got my hands on it, 4 days after release…

The Specs:
Quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800
2GB RAM
Adreno 330 GPU
5-inch 1080p IPS screen 445ppi
Android 4.4
8-megapixel camera with flash and OIS

The Nexus 5 is available in both 16GB and 32GB. Unfortunately the phone does not have any expandable memory slots but this isn’t a huge issue! These days a lot of things are stored in the cloud. The 16GB version is available for £299 and the 32GB version for £339. (Shipping is an extra £10) Continue reading

BBM Android – App Review

blackberry-live-keynote-bbm-cross-platform-4So this week saw the rise (and fall?) of BBM Android and for iOS. I was waiting for this for quite a long time to be honest. Just the fact that it was becoming a multi-platform app was amazing in its own right. When it went live, I immediately downloaded it without second thought!

But to my surprise (barely), I was put on a waiting list in order to have the app running with my own unique BBM pin. Which is fair enough i guess, considering the influx of users registering the first time round.

It sorta made sense…

I didn’t wait for nature (or virtual nature, rather) to take its course and went and looked for workarounds to get it working quicker.

So after twiddling about with the app itself for a while, I skipped the queue and jumped right to the front…. you know, as you would….

The New Nexus 7 (2013) Review

nexus-7-2-tThe new Nexus 7 (2013) has been all over the internet ever since it was announced. Now that it has been released, I’ve seen a lot of great reviews for this mammoth of a tablet. Asus and Google worked together to create a reasonably priced tablet that boasts pretty much flagship specs.

Everything you’d need in a tablet was present in the first Nexus 7, but this 2013 edition has blown the roof off of the virtual roof and has surpassed certainly my expectation for a tablet that you can pick up for roughly £200 more or less…Wow.

It does have a slightly smaller battery than the first edition but so far I haven’t seen many complaints about that. As well as this it has a 5MP rear facing camera, which is really just the icing on the cake. The camera, however, doesn’t seem like the form factor of the device and quite evidently wasn’t the focal point of the tab. Continue reading

The 3doodler

3doodler-3d-printing-pen-640x353

Have you heard about the 3doodler yet? This is pretty much the future… As good as it gets.

They had a Kickstarter project asking for $30,000 in donations (for reservations) and ended up getting over $2 million and still counting.

Amazing, eh?

The great thing about this is that it’s a real thing… A concept that will be produced. An idea made into a reality. Present moving into the future… Continue reading
