HP webOS coming to DesignJet printers after all, next year.

Well, this is contradictory news as we recently posted a rumor of Amazon to buy HP webOS, now a HP spokesperson has exclusively told Pocket-lint that the company is to incorporate the supposedly dead webOS into its printers. 



“HP is currently investigating using WebOS on its Designjet range of professional printers,” HP told Pocket-lint at the HP Impact event in Dublin.

That leads us to believe that the mobile operating system is also coming to consumer grade Hewlett Packard printing products very soon.

Whilst the source was unsure at to whether HP would have anything ready to show this year, we were told that WebOS would be appearing next year.

Rumor: Amazon is a one click on the shopping cart for HP webOS ?

VentureBeat is reporting that a well-placed source tells them that HP is currently looking to rid itself of Palm as soon as possible, and that Amazon is the closest to finalizing the deal, among a handful of contenders.



"It also appears that HP has been eyeing Amazon for some time as a potential webOS partner. In an interview with This is my next in July, Rubinstein revealed quite a bit about having Amazon use webOS in its future tablets: So, we’d like a partner that would allow us to expand the webOS ecosystem… There’s a variety of different sets of a characteristics to qualify as a good partner. I would say Amazon would certainly make a great partner, because they have a lot of characteristics that would help them expand the webOS ecosystem. As to whether there’s been discussions or not… that’s obviously not something I’m going to comment about.HP paid $1.2 billion for Palm in 2010, but Amazon will end up spending a fract…

Samsung to produce Flexible AMOLED displays in Q4 2012, lighter and thinner smartphones to come.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.


According to a report from Korean language news site DDaily,Samsung  will begin producing flexible AMOLED displays this quarter. The panels are said to be less than half as thick as current-generation panels, measuring just 0.6 millimeters compared to 1.8 millimeters. The publication notes, however, that the initial displays will be protected by inflexible glass rather than a flexible plastic layer needed for use in a flexible device. Samsung is reportedly planning to release a device with an ultra-thin flexible AMOLED display by the end of the year, and is looking to begin mass production of truly flexible displays by 2014. 


One official said, "more than half the thickness as well as reducing weight and thinner and lighter smartphones will be able to come," he said.

The Life of George new LEGO game for iPhone.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

New app will challenge users to build with Lego blocks and use the iPhone's camera to assess the results.
Now here’s an unexpected pairing that makes a wacky sort of sense: LEGO and iPhones.
The Danish company responsible for the iconic building blocks announced its new interactive iPhone app this week, and it’s an interesting one, to say the least.
Titled The Life of George, the app challenges users to quickly build small models using real LEGO bricks and then snap a photo of the finished product with the iPhone’s camera. Points are then awarded for accuracy and speed.Sounds easy enough, but before you start building, you’ll need to purchase a real-world retail package required for the app. The package comes with all the necessary blocks and a special pad that facilitates pattern recognition on the app.
The game will feature 12 levels of brick-manipulating challenges, all of which revolve around George, a tech-savvy charact…

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.



NTT Docomo said that it will work with Orange to source an Android smartphone from vendor Sharp, “marking the first time for an overseas operator to deploy a Docomo smartphone.” 
The Japanese operator said that the device, sold as Aquos Phone SH-12C in Japan, has been redesigned for the European market, and renamed Aquos Phone SH80F. It has been described as Orange’s “first mobile device capable of converting images and videos from 2D to 3D in real time.”

Microsoft and Samsung signed a patent cross licensing agreement.

WorldWide Tech & Science Francisco De Jesús.

Microsoft announced a patent cross licensing agreement with Samsung, which will see it receive royalties for the South Korean vendor’s “mobile phones and tablets running the Android platform.” The companies will also “cooperate in the development and marketing of Windows Phone.”


It was reported earlier this year that Microsoft was targeting Samsung as part of its strategy to generate patent licensing revenue from Android device manufacturers, having already secured a deal with HTC and a number of  tier-two vendors. Terms of the current deal have not been disclosed, but a figure of US$10 per handset was previously mooted – if Samsung agreed to a deeper engagement with Windows Phone.
Market watcher Asymco previously said that Microsoft receives more revenue from HTC´s licensing of patents for Android devices than it does for its own Windows Phone platform, and with Samsung closing in fast on the number-one handset vendor spot, the current de…

LTE: Australia: Telstra LTE goes national.

Image
WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.

Australian number one operator Telstra has launched the country’s first 4G LTE networks in state capital city centres and more than 30 regional and metropolitan centres.

The carrier said users in areas covered by the network can expect download speeds ranging between 2Mb/s and 40Mb/s, depending on distance from base stations and local conditions. This is 10 times faster than speeds claimed by Australian operators for 3G, according to Telstra. Upload speeds should range between 1Mb/s and 10Mb/s, a three-fold speed increase compared to existing mobile broadband.
Network latency is also expected to improve, meaning the time taken for data to travel from a PC to the network and back again, will halve. Services such as video conferencing, cloud-hosted streaming an online gaming will therefore require less buffering and suffer from fewer interruptions.
Users can access the network using a Telstra USB 4G mobile broadband modem. Consum…
