Pandora’s New Layout Came When It Was Supposed To

Pandora’s new layout is a welcome change for me, primarily because it is based on HTML5. With the previous version of Pandora, my 32-bit Firefox browser would often crash on my 64-bit operating system due to the flash player.

Since, I no longer use Firefox, it hasn’t been a problem with good ol’ trusty Chrome, but it’s still nice to know that Firefox will be safe.

Sony Ericsson Wilhelmina Concept, First Panoramic Phone?

We’ve heard about the PSP phone that lets you enjoy PS1 games on your phone, the Xperia Play, but this new concept by Sony Ericsson is much, much cooler. It’s called the Sony Ericsson Wilhelmina and it is powered by four cores in a clamshell gaming phone factor.

The gorgeous device looks much nicer than the stereotypical PS Vita. It caries two borderless touchscreens and offers a widescreen view for the player.

Sony Modifies Android Honeycomb For Its S-Tablets

Although many Android fans will attest that the mobile operating system is perfect in its true form, there are still companies and organizations who think it could be made better, and Sony is among them.

Now, before you picture any major changes, stop. Sony won’t be making any ‘deep’ system changes, but more of the cosmetic type. The launcher, for example, is only slightly changed with added functionality that lets you access the network settings much easier.

Android Ice Cream Sandwich Will Require TI Processor?

The new Nexus Prime phone is touted to not only run on the new Android Ice Cream Sandwich, but will also be fueled by a Texas Instruments OMAP 4 processor. Whether this will be the new standard for Ice Cream Sandwich remains a mystery, but it leaves some people guessing.

Another possibility, is that we are overanalyzing Google’s ties with Texas Instruments, and that an Nvidia Tegra 3 processor will suit it fine. If Ice Cream is to Gingerbread what Gingerbread is to Froyo, there won’t really be a need for a killer processor.

Leak: Sony Working On 4.7″ 3D Smartphone

When will Sony choose to draw the line between smartphone and tablet? Well, I can’t answer that one just yet, but I can tell you that Sony Ericsson is planning a massive 4.7″ 3D smartphone device.

The gadget will be glasses-free and will have a super sharp resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. To put that number in perspective, that’s like transferring a standard resolution from a 13″ laptop screen onto a 4.7″ screen, offering extremely sharp images.

Samsung Stays Competitive W/ 7″ Super AMOLED Screen

Samsung is taking their work very seriously, and will roll out an improved resolution on their current 7″ AMOLED display. In order to stay competitive with new electronics models, that seem to be rolling out on a weekly basis, it seems like we are entering a pixel war.

Just a few weeks ago, we talked about the possible iPad HD, and greater resolutions all around the table from brand-name electronics manufacturers. News of this new AMOLED shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

X-Ray Camera Captures 4.5 Million Frames Per Second

Researchers at the Science and Technology Facilities Council in the United Kingdom have created an X-Ray camera that lets you see 3D images of real individual molecules. The camera can capture images at 4.5 million frames per second.

To put some perspective on that number, the human eye perceives the real world at around 30-45 frames per second. The camera functions by using a superconducting accelerator that produces X-ray flashes a billion times brighter than normal cameras.
