After first breaking the news of the Oppo N1 and its new camera technology that is expected to compete against the likes of the Galaxy Camera and the upcoming Sony Honami, the company itself posted a teaser of the imminent arrival of the device and its highly-anticipated feature, a rear touch panel. Today, a couple of images of the smartphone have surfaced online on Weibo, along with a leaked image courtesy of EvLeaks, giving us a look at what to expect.
As you can see, the images show the white version of the device, with a large display and a slim form factor. It looks like all the navigation buttons are going to be on-screen, and we can also see that there are no buttons on the right side of the device, with the bottom housing the microphone, speaker, microUSB port, and headphone jack.
Of course, it’s a little disappointing that an image of the rear of the device, which is expected to feature the new N-lens 13MP camera and touch panel, aren’t available. But, the company has posted a chart on its Weibo page showcasing some of the capabilities of the touch panel, which include swiping through pages, scrolling, change songs, full camera control, along with other user-defined functions as well.
We now know what the Oppo N1 looks like, and at least some of the functionality of the rear touch panel, but we’ll still have to wait to find out exactly what the specifications of the device are. With the Oppo N1 being launched in September, stay tuned as we find out more!
What are your thoughts? What do you think of the design of the Oppo N1? Is the rear touch panel going to be a useful feature? Let us know in the comments section below.
If there has been on topic on the minds of BlackBerry Z10 owners that needs highlighting, it’s the fact that the newly introduced BlackBerry Link which replaces BlackBerry Desktop Software for BlackBerry 10 devices currently lacks the functionality to sync Outlook via USB.
Sure, there are ways to get it working similarly assuming you have an Outlook.com webmail account but that’s not ideal and not what previous owners had access to. Previous BlackBerry owners want their desktop Outlook sync via USB and many, are wondering why the hell it was removed in the first place.
Luckily, BlackBerry has now commented on the matter and desktop synch via USB will be making its way to the BlackBerry Link via an update that will include the ability to import contact and calendar information directly from Outlook to your BlackBerry 10 smartphone and another update shortly after that will bring full two-way sync.
With BlackBerry 10 the syncing of PIM data between your BlackBerry Z10 and computer can be easily configured to happen over the air. You need to add your existing webmail accounts on the BlackBerry Z10 and set the email, contacts, calendar for syncing. We have posted information on how to do this for example with Outlook.com on the Help Blog.
For those of you for whom over the air synchronization is not an option, we want to assure you that direct sync via USB is also being worked on and we are committed on adding this capability as part of our BlackBerry Link software suite. Our first major update for BlackBerry Link coming in the next few weeks will include the ability to import contact and calendar information directly from Outlook to your BlackBerry 10 smartphone. Full two-way sync will be added in the next update shortly thereafter. We will provide more information about timing of these features on our various forums and blogs, but you can also look for updates at http://BlackBerry.com/BlackBerryLink
That of course, doesn’t explain why it was removed in the first place but I suppose it will put those who are looking for the function and not having any luck minds at rest. Personally, I’ve never used the desktop synching option and always found it to be one of the reasons BlackBerry Desktop Software was slow as cold molasses running up a hill backwards in Winnipeg but clearly, a lot of folks enjoyed using it and for some it’s a must-have offering.
