LG G2 mini coming to Europe, Latin America, Asia end of the month

LG has just announced the schedule of availability of its mini flagship, the G2 mini. Offered not only in different colors but also in different hardware configurations, the G2 mini will begin its commercial launch in selected regions of Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia starting at the end of March.

The G2 mini was unveiled back in February at MWC 2014. Following in the footsteps of certain manufacturers, LG provided a smaller and slightly less powerful smartphone bearing the flagship’s name. But despite having a smaller 4.7-inch 960×540 display, the G2 mini still boasted the same premium features of its namesake, as well as upgrades that the G2 was yet to gain, such as Android 4.4 and the much-advertised Knock Code gesture.

But rather than just settle for a smaller rehash of the G2, LG aimed to make the G2 mini appeal to as many user groups as possible, unveiling different models with different hardware sets. One variant, for example, has dual SIM capabilities while another only has a single SIM slot. The 3G-only model also sports a different processor, a 1.7 GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4i, from that of the LTE variant, which has a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400.

Those variants, as well as the four color options of black, white, gold, and red, will be available for purchase at the end of this month, starting in regions such as the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Latin America, and Southeast Asia. Other key markets will follow, though LG has not disclosed when. The company has also left out pricing details from the announcement.

LG G2 mini official: 4.7-inch 540 x 960 display, Snapdragon 400, and Android KitKat

LG-G2-Mini

The “mini” version of the LG G2 was first rumored in December, and LG teased it last week for an MWC unveiling. Now LG made it official, at least in the Netherlands, so we’re able to give you the full rundown on its specs and features.

The LG G2 mini is actually quite a large device, with a 4.7-inch LCD display of a disappointing qHD (540 x 960) resolution. That translates to a mediocre 234 ppi density, far below the excellent 424ppi of its bigger brother, the G2. Another compromise is the Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz (though a Tegra 4i chip could take its place in some markets), which is coupled with 1GB of RAM. There’s an 8MP rear camera, a 1.3MP frontal one, 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot, while the battery capacity is a promising 2,440 mAh.

LG transplanted much of the G2’s design to the G2 mini, including the specific back-mounted power button and volume rocker. On the front, the G2 mini preserves the very thin bezels of its sibling, meaning that the overall size of the device is just three millimeters larger than Sony’s Xperia Z2 Compact, which features however a 4.3-inch screen.

The LG G2 mini will run Android 4.4 KitKat when it launches in the next weeks, with all the software features that are present on the flagship LG G2. The device will be released in the Netherlands and Belgium from April, but the first markets to get it will be Russia and neighboring countries, in March. Eventually, the device should make its way to more countries in Middle East, Latin America, Asia, and Europe.

Sony has really raised the bar when it comes to compact devices, and it’s clear that the LG G2 mini is not threatening the Xperia Z2 Compact’s supremacy in the segment. However, depending on its price, it could be successful – no details have been provided so far, but the G2 mini should sell in the €300-€400 range.

We look forward to see the LG G2 mini at MWC next week, alongside the G Pro 2 and the new budget L Series III. Are you impressed with LG’s efforts this year?

The Padcaster Mini Kickstarts Production Dreams

New York City, New York – The creators of the Original Padcaster and Padcaster Air transformed your iPad into a mobile production studio, putting form and function in league with your imagination. The Padcaster won the filmmaking community over with its elegant simplicity, and now they are ready to see the line of gear expand. “We’re asked repeatedly when a version for the iPad mini will be released,” says Josh Apter, the company’s founder. To answer the call for a Padcaster Mini, the team behind The Padcaster is launching a Kickstarter campaign. “With the Original Padcaster and Padcaster Air Kit already in production, having been funded almost entirely out of pocket, it would be impossible to continue production while simultaneously researching and developing a Padcaster for the iPad mini.”

Dubbed “a must have” by CNET with an outstanding 4.5-star review and featured in Apple’s gorgeous new iPad Air “Your Verse” campaign, The Padcaster inspires innovative pro workflows while transforming enthusiasts into artists. Based on the same design as the Original Padcaster, The Padcaster Mini will feature a sturdy aluminum frame with a flexible insert, optimized for the iPad mini. Offering the same impressive 1080p HD video recording capabilities as the iPad Air in a smaller, lighter and more compact package, the iPad mini is the perfect Padcaster companion, making The Padcaster Mini a natural evolution in Padcaster production.

With a Kickstarter goal of ,000 and 30 days to make it happen, the team behind The Padcaster hopes to remove the limit on creative possibilities with the addition of The Padcaster Mini to its lineup of tablet production tools. Money raised will be put toward the initial cost of designing, prototyping and manufacturing The Padcaster Mini. Those who back The Padcaster Mini Kickstarter campaign will receive exclusive perks, from a Padcaster of their choice to a baker’s dozen of famous New York City bagels to a Livestream tutorial session with Padcaster inventor Josh Apter.

The Story Behind The Padcaster:
The Padcaster was conceived by real world users, field tested and thoughtfully designed to go everywhere you take your iPad. The Padcaster is a powerful iPad accessory, whether you’re making memories or making history. It mounts to your tripod with no tools required, so any family or classroom member can set it up. It’s lightweight enough for backpack broadcasters, versatile enough for shoulder mounting, and sturdy enough to stand on its own for editing or viewing. It’s affordable too, so hobbyists can leapfrog over high-end gear prices, while achieving seriously pro-level results.

The Padcaster expands with you. Effortlessly add LED lights, an on-board microphone, audio interface, accessory clamp and a monopod to simulate an instant, all-in-one production studio. Edit and upload your professional-quality footage directly from the iPad to begin showing others not just the scene, but your unique perspective.

More On the Padcaster
The Padcaster continues to be recognized by many for its unique ability to transform the iPad into an on-the-go filmmaking device that facilitates and encourages creativity.

“The Padcaster is one of those accessories that pushes the Apple iPad beyond what most people do or would think of doing with it. It takes iPad Videography to the next level.” – Joshua Goldman, CNET

“Anyone who is interested in using an iPad for filmmaking or broadcasting – either as an amateur or professionally – should consider getting the Padcaster. It’s a brilliantly conceived and well-built accessory that should be extremely popular with the video and filmmaking crowd.” – Steve Sande, TUAW

“The iPad is an amazing tool for shooting photos and video. It’s not a case. It’s not a fashion statement. It’s a tool, a piece of pro-level gear. And for the people who recognize that, the Padcaster is an equally amazing, though simple way for them to use it for video production.” – Bill Stiteler, Technology Tell

ASUS PadFone Mini to hit the US by way of AT&T

True to its word, ASUS will soon be bringing its PadFone line of smartphone/tablet hybrids to the US. But the company won’t be starting with a model that’s already been revealed and will instead be launching a new ASUS PadFone X.

We first got a glimpse of the PadFone X when an AnTuTu benchmark for the device was discovered last December. All that was revealed back then was that it would be powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, have 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, and running the latest Android 4.4. While ASUS is now confirming the existence of the device there is still much about it left unknown.

According to ASUS, the PadFone X is a 5-inch Full HD smartphone, so we can presume at least 1920

Mini War released for iOS – The Best Strategy Board Game

Ho Chi Minh, Viet Nam – Do you love playing chess? Are you seeking for a new interesting strategy game? Or do you like to have your brain challenged? Mini War 1.0 is just the right game for you. The game is inspired from the traditional Animal Chess game where the animals are ranked in the circle way. The strongest one can be killed by the weakest one if being attacked. It also shares the same interesting feature with Stratego game, where the pieces are hidden from your opponent.

The nice thing about Mini War is that it allows you to have a pretty fair winning chance when playing against an experienced player if you are lucky enough. With the fact that your opponent does not know about your army setup – all the pieces are hidden – you can have multiple interesting strategies such as keeping a hidden card, or bluffing as in poker.

In MiniWar, you will control your army to protect your flag while also trying your best to capture the opponent’s one. Each player will have a total of 16 pieces, some with different specialties. The game setup is really important since you need to arrange the pieces to fit nicely with your strategy. The game will end when either yours or your enemy’s flag is captured. If you win the game, you will earn coins to fill up your energy. At the same time, you will earn points to help you get to higher ranks and stay in the top chart. Meanwhile, if you lose a game, you will lose some points and earn less coins. You will receive rewarding badges when you make some achievements.

We have been developing Mini War for the past year to make it a real-time social game. If you log in to the game, you will see the players gathering in a lobby chatting, making friends, and challenging each other similar to other popular real-time strategy games such as Starcraft, Warcraft.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 34.0 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Mini War 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. We believe that with our platform, the users will get more engagement to the game, and can get entertained during their free time. Let’s give it a try and send us feedback so that we can improve Mini War.

HTC One max and mini Android 4.4.2 updates tipped for January or February

[#protected_0#]

[#protected_0#] recently offered an infographic which detailed the Android update process. Basically, HTC attempted to give an explanation as to why these Android updates sometimes take quite a while before the reach each and every user. So with that in mind, it looks like some rumors have sprung up surrounding the HTC One max and One mini smartphones.

7c0ea787e0max 04.jpg HTC One max and mini Android 4.4.2 updates tipped for January or Februaryupdates tipped for January or February” />

The source of the information has been accurate regarding HTC in the past, but as we often see — the carriers play a big part in when these updates reach everyone. Anyway, according to a recent Twitter post from @LlabTooFeR, Android 4.4.2 will be heading towards “all new” HTC devices in January or February.

“All new devices such as One,One DualSIM, One max, One mini will get 4.4.2 update in time frame January-February”

This update is also expected to bring Sense up to version 5.5. And for those looking and/or hoping to see Sense 6 — it seems that is still some time away. Further comments from @LlabTooFeR touched on how that “might appear in late Autumn.”

Clarifying that late Autumn timeframe, that was for devices that have already been released. Or in other words, HTC could potentially drop HTC Sense 6 on a new device before it will arrive on any of these already available devices. Anyway, while this gives a potential timeline to be aware of — ultimately we are going to have to start watching HTC and the individual carriers for a better idea of when Android 4.4.2 will be arriving.

Android 4.4 KitKat update for Galaxy Ace, Fit, Mini and Gio unofficially available via CyanogenMod 11

Android 4.4 KitKat logo - aa

The Android 4.4 KitKat update is now unofficially available on several older Samsung Galaxy devices including the Ace, Fit, Mini and Gio.

Samsung is yet to release the KitKat update for several of its flagship devices let alone older models, but since Google’s Android 4.4 OS version is compatible with smartphones and tablets that have at least 512MB of RAM, we’re not surprised to see more “old” low-end to mid-range devices get the update.

This time around, we’re looking at updates created by the smart folks at xda-developers, which have found a way to bring KitKat to the Ace, Fit, Mini and Gio via CyanogenMod 11 (that’s also based on KitKat). In case these handsets do not sound that familiar, that’s because they were released by Samsung all the way back at MWC 2011 and hit various markets in months that followed the event – therefore, we’re looking at handsets that will soon be celebrating their third anniversary.

As with other unofficial Android updates, you should expect various bugs with these KitKat builds, but they may be fixed in the future. One of the issues developers are apparently working with is the lack of storage space on these handsets. Even so, running an unofficial KitKat on the Ace, Fit Mini and Gio should be a pleasant surprise for the owners of these handsets.

As usually, we advise against installing unofficial ROMs on your hardware, and we’ll point out the fact that you’re the only person responsible for what happens to them during such updates. But since these devices are pretty old by now, and may already be gathering dust in some corners, installing KitKat on them may be a fun project.

In order to proceed with your appropriate KitKat installation, check out the following threads for the Ace, Fit, Mini and Gio.

Android 4.3 upgrade arriving this week for international HTC One Mini and Verizon HTC One

htc-one-speaker-grille

HTC has certainly been on top of things recently, at least when it comes to OS updates. Not only did the company do its best to aggressively push out Android 4.3 to the HTC One in a timely manner, they have already brought Android 4.4 KitKat to unlocked and developer editions of the handset. 

Now it’s the One Mini’s turn to upgrade to Android 4.3, with Sense 5.5 included!

Right now the update seems to be rolling out only to international users in Europe, though hopefully an upgrade isn’t too far off for those in other regions such as North America. What’s new here? Aside from Jelly Bean 4.3, Sense 5.5 brings a re-vamped BlinkFeed that can even be disabled. There’s also new gallery and video highlight features, and some multitasking UI improvements.

Although firmware update 2.12.401.1 has yet to rollout to everyone, advanced users can manually get their hands on the update thanks to XDA Forum Member vrvr’s efforts, which include mirroring the OTA and even creating a system dump of the updated firmware. For more details on that, you’ll want to head on over to the XDA Developer’s forum.

With the HTC One’s 4.3 update finished, and the HTC One Mini’s update just beginning, Verizon owners might be wondering when exactly they will finally get their delayed Android 4.3 update. The good news is that over the weekend HTC’s Executive Director of Product Management Mo Versi revealed that the Verizon update should be arriving sometime this week.

No word just yet on whether the 4.3 update is based around Sense 5.0 or if it comes with the newer Sense 5.5.

Now all that’s left is for HTC to finish up rolling out Jelly Bean 4.3 so it can put its full attention into bringing KitKat to all its flagship devices. What do you think of HTC’s most recent efforts (starting with the HTC One’s debut) — are they slowly on the road to recovery or is it too little too late?

Sony Xperia Z1S Mini FCC filing discovered with Anami codename

We have seen talk of the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini before, as both the Z1 F and the Z1 S. The former has been officially announced and will be available in Japan by way of NTT DoCoMo. For today though, a recently discovered FCC filing is showing the Xperia Z1 S with the codename of Anami.

b8d90bf061x28311.jpg Sony Xperia Z1S Mini FCC filing discovered with Anami codename

This of course, is in keeping with the earlier Honami codename, which was the Xperia Z1. This filing had the handset listed as the Sony D5503 Anami and while there was the sketch seen here — it did not include any images of the handset in testing. There also wasn’t much in the way of spec details. That isn’t all that surprising and for that, we look towards earlier rumors.

7f88f35367el 540.jpg Sony Xperia Z1S Mini FCC filing discovered with Anami codename

Earlier rumors were suggesting a 20 megapixel camera and a Snapdragon 800 processor. There isn’t any guarantee the Z1 S specs will mirror those of the Z1 F, however we can look towards that model for some official details. Specs for the Japanese Z1 F include a 4.3-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and the 20.7 megapixel rear-camera with Exmore RS sensor.

Otherwise, this filing did show some specifics for network support and there was mention of HSPA and LTE. This key with all this, just because we have seen an FCC filing — that doesn’t guarantee we will see an announcement or release. Still, Sony does have something planned for CES and in fact, they have already announced an event to take place in Las Vegas on January 6th.
