We did not see this coming. It was a rumor in the air for many years after the original iPad but now its reality. So here it is, the iPad Air. Same size, same screen but a whole light lighter.
Apple’s event today debuted the brand new iPad Air. It’s thinner, lighter, and even more powerful than the iPad it replaces. Weight wise its now just one pound; down from the 1.4 pound giant of the iPad fourth generation. It still packs the beautiful 9.7-inch Retina display with the same pixel count. Underneath the iPad now runs on the Apple A7 chip dual-core chip and right next to it is the M7 co-processor debuted on the iPhone 5s.
You can expect faster Wi-Fi with MiMo connectivity and LTE connectivity across more networks than ever. Now moving onto the cameras. The iPad Air hosts a 5-megapixel iSight Camera capable of taking 1080P video and the new front facing FaceTime HD camera with larger pixels.
iPad Air does NOT come with TouchID. Let me repeat that. Does NOT come with TouchID so those of you who were wanting to see the new fingerprint magical scanner might have to wait until the next iPad Air… iPad Air 2 I suppose.
The iPad received a very good upgrade. I’m a little underwhelmed but maybe it was the lack of new iPods, Apple TV updates, and TouchID.
The iPad Air is launching November 1st but no pre-orders so expect those lines to be quite massive. Pricing remains the same at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model. Add an additional $100 for each doubling of the storage.
The 4G LTE model starts at $629 then add an additional $100 for each doubled storage.
Here at Gadget Experts we are huge fans of cool things. Especially when its all nerdy and techie. So when we heard that Intel had an amazing project they were doing with the Tablet x Flume we just had to write about it.
In the video they collaborated in you can see the power and potential of the next generation of tablets being run by Intel mobile processors. The amount of intel chips in mobile devices are low but they will start going back up. Intel mobile processors are among the most powerful in the world. They can still deliver all that performance while delivering very good battery performance. The video shows a mix of how technology can integrate and power just about anything. Even orchestrating a very powerful music piece. It’s a really cool video to check out below.
Intel chips will start coming down on many mobile devices. We can see the future of our mobile devices take over our laptops and desktops. It’s all very exciting.
If you know anything about Flume you know they are all about music. This video is pretty cool to watch. It’s cleverly showing off Intel powered tablets and the amazing talent at those who work at Flume. You can check out some of the links below to see how they made this video and some of the great technology that Intel has.

The rumors of Sprint striking back to T-Mobile’s publicity after their Uncarrier event has finally taken place. After slight word of the Sprint announcement yesterday, Sprint has delivered with two new plan options. The Unlimited, My Way plans and the All-In for those tech savvy people who use a lot of data and tether.
Let’s start with the Unlimited, My Way plan. The plan starts off at $50 for the first line for Unlimited talk and text. Add $30 for Unlimited data. The second line is an extra $40, the third line is an extra $30, and the fourth through tenth line is $20 each. This will allow the whole family to be unlimited and worry free. You still have the option of paying the $20 per month for 1GB of data but really… who would?
The All-In plan is a little more interesting. The plan itself is $110 and will give unlimited talk, text, and data with 5GB of Mobile Hotspot usage per month. Pretty great.
Both of these plans will go in effect on July 12, tomorrow if you are reading 0n post day.
Long lived the name of Nokia EOS because today we have been given a new name of the phone. The highly anticipated Nokia EOS with its huge camera sensor is now called the Nokia Lumia 1020. So let’s start with the specs.
It would be kind of stupid to talk about the phone’s processor and RAM configurations for few reasons. One, we actually don’t know it yet, and two….. WHO CARES. This 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display device has a huge 41-megapixel sensor on the back. See what I did there?
The sensor is one piece of magnificent work. For starters, the size of the sensor is 1/1.5-inch which is about five times larger than most sensors in smartphones. That includes the iPhone 5. Next is the lens or should I say lenses. It has a staggering six lenses, all Carl Zeiss glass. It offers all the wide angle you will ever need and let in the most amount of light without taking away detail.
Now the clever part about this new system is the way the camera takes photos and the amazing Optical Image Stabilization the 1020 has. The software will take two photos when you take your photo. It will take a full sized, pixel per pixel photo that will be 41-megapixels and then it will take a 5-megapixel cropped image. They call this “OverSampling”. Basically the cropped image will have no loss of image detail what so ever. So even if you zoom in on the 5-megapixel still, the details are as clear as day. It’s pretty impressive and even more impressive to see the actual results. It’s pretty great.
The sensors themselves will be able to capture 34-megapixel stills at the 16:9 aspect ratio and 38-megapixel stills at the 4:3 aspect ratio. The oversampling feature will work between 5 and 7 megapixels depending on the aspect ratio selected.
Nokia is really pushing on this phone of being one of the best camera phones in the world. I’m not going to argue with them. The 1020 is by far the best mobile device for taking photos. The next section will help with that.
Optical Image Stabilization
High Tech stuff to make photos better
Optical Image Stabilization is usually left for higher end digital cameras and most
professional DSLRs with their own lens stabilizers. Most affordable digital cameras and smartphones use cropping and digital image stabilization that just crops in to cut some of the shake out. The results are okay but you do get image cut off. Sometimes they ruin your image or video.
The usual solution for Optical Stabilization is a few coils that suspends the lens. With the shifts of your device, the lens will float and balance on those coils to keep the lens shake free.
To hear that Nokia has added OIS to the 1020 is a heart felt welcome. But then hearing on how they did it was even more spectacular. So prepare to get your digital brains blown.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 has a few ball bearings that hold the lens in place. This essentially suspends the lens in air away from the shocks of life. So when the phone shakes up/down, left/right, the ball bearings will help keep it smooth. Then Nokia added tiny electric motors that will actually move the bearings up down and rotate them to keep the lens in check with the movements.
Stephen Elop actually noted that you can hear the little motors whining when you move the phone in the camera application. This might be the most effective feature to this phone. I can’t wait to try it out for myself.
The Lumia 1020 will be coming to AT&T on July 26th for $299.99. It’s a big price to swallow but this is aimed at those who want to take the best photographs and video on the go. This may kill the need to buy a dedicated camera. The 1020 will also be released in international markets very soon to the AT&T launch.
