ZTE vai apresentar o seu próprio telefone com Firefox OS na MWC 2013

OS planos da ZTE para este ano no Mobile World Congress ficaram mais interessantes. Enquanto já foi levantado o veu sobre o novo modelo "Grand Memo", a fabricante chinesa sugere que haverá outro modelo "um novo dispositivo móvel importante" para nos mostrar. Sabíamos que a Mozilla e a ZTE estavam a trabalhar à já algum tempo conjuntamente, sendo isso a confirmação de uns  murmúrios de que iríamos ver algun hardware Firefox OS no início deste ano - embora não há nenhum indício de que isto possa ocorrer em Barcelona, sendo um mistério ainda. A ver vamos.

Cycloramic Amazing Iphone app

Cycloramic
Cycloramic is a really fun video recording app that will automatically spin your iPhone 5 around and record a video. As long as your iPhone 5 is placed on a smooth, flat surface, Cycloramic will use the vibrator in the iPhone 5 to make it spin 360 degrees. Not only is this impressive and just a lot of fun to watch, but Cycloramic is a great way to capture video of everyone sitting at a table during a dinner party or family gathering.
To use Cycloramic, you must make sure your iPhone 5 is set to vibrate on silent and to vibrate on ring, remove any case that may be on your iPhone 5, place it upright on a smooth flat surface, and hit Go! It'll countdown from 3 and start the spinning and recording.
As of right now, Cycloramic only supports the iPhone 5 and video recording, but the folks at Egos Ventures promises that that next version will support the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S as well as panoramic photos. Make sure to check out the video below for a sneak peek at Cycloramic 2.0.
Cycloramic is one of those "you have to see it to believe it" apps and guaranteed to draw some crowds at your next social gathering.

Nokia reports profit after six quarters of losses

Nokia investors have something to smile about this morning, as the company's Q4 2012 financial results reveal a return to operating profit for the first time since Q1 2011.
the company sold 4.4 million Lumias over the quarter, a more-than 50 percent jump from Q3's 2.9 million, and its best quarter since launching its Windows Phone line. The uptick in sales contributed to €8.04 billion in overall revenue for the quarter, which when balanced with Nokia's continued restructuring and other costs resulted in a €439 million profit.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop had this to say about the quarterly results:

"We are very encouraged that our team’s execution against our business strategy has started to translate into financial results.
Most notably we are pleased that Nokia Group reached underlying operating profitability in the fourth quarter and for the full year 2012. While the first half of 2012 was difficult for Nokia Group, in Q4 2012 we strengthened our financial position, improved our underlying operating margin in Devices & Services, introduced the HERE brand to expand our mapping and location experiences, and drove record profitability in Nokia Siemens Networks.
We remain focused on moving through our transition, which includes continuing to improve our product competitiveness, accelerate the way we operate and manage our costs effectively.
All of these efforts are aimed at improving our financial performance and delivering more value to our shareholders."

Mas não só , ele vai ser alimentado por um processador de 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon, 2GB de RAM, 32 GB de armazenamento, câmara de  13mp e melhor de tudo, uma bateria humungous  de 3.000 mAh.

A Informação actual sugere que o LG Optimus Pro G será lançado no Japão, embora nós apostamos que o G Optimus Pro estará no próximo mês na Mobile World Congress, em Barcelona, portanto, fique atento.
