China Unicom announces six vendors for Wophone OS-based devices

WorldWideTech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

China Unicom has announced six vendors which will offer devices based on its new Wophone operating system.
The vendors are Samsung, HTC, Motorola Mobility, Huawei, ZTE and TCL. The operator said the launch of the devices is imminent but did not provide any more detail, according to Dow Jones Newswires.
The operator said at the GSMA Mobile Asia Congress last November it would launch handsets based on its own OS (then known as Uphone rather than Wophone) by the end of 2010, as reported by Mobile Business Briefing. Clearly the operator’s plans for Wophone are running behind schedule, judging from the timing of the current announcement on vendors.
Few specific details about the Wophone OS are available from China Unicom, although it is known to be Linux-based but not Android, the operator has stipulated. Larger rival China Mobile developed its own OS prior to China Unicom, the similar-sounding Ophone, which is a variation on Android. China Un…

Apple loves Android´s “dot” gesture lock screen feature.

WorldWideTech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

Apple has been working on a new gesture-based lock screen for iOS devices that works similarly to Android’s “dots” lock screen feature. The user sets up a pattern and needs to input that same pattern in, instead of a password or a four number code. Apple has already deployed this new lock screen internally for use in the employee ‘Apple Connect’ application for iOS devices.There is no word on whether or not this new lock screen will make its way to iOS devices for users. We were told, though, that Apple will be pushing this lock screen down to some of their internal applications in the future. For example the applications retail-store employees use.Apple is even planning on bringing this down to theirnew mobile payment system business, on the EasyPay machines. The lock screen looks just like Android’s lock screen, which Google probably has patents on, so this might never see the fingers of consumers. Three more screenshots of the system …

WorldWideTech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

Germany with Taiwan's MiTAC first off the starting line with four new tablets heading for the show. Hoping to capitalize on the success of last year's award-winning Valinor media tablet, the company has announced a couple of media tablets, a rugged model and one featuring two GPS receivers.

While it's doubtful that the two Valar media tablets about to get a showing in Germany will have quite the same impact on the world as their Ainur namesakes, you will at least be able to watch movies like the Lord of the Rings trilogy in full 1080p high definition on the displays themselves or on a big screen TV via HDMI-out.

They benefit from a 1GHz Cortex processor, Android 2.3 with MiTAC overlay, a front-facing 1.3 megapixel webcam and a 5-megapixel camera with flash at the rear. The Valar 7, as you might expect, features a 7-inch touchscreen display while the Valar 10 has a 10-inch high definition widescreen display. Both units come with…
