As you may see in the image above, the Normandy is expected to arrive in numerous colors – assuming the product will indeed hit retailers – and we in the end get to have a look at its user interface, which hasn’t exactly been made available in previous leaks. We will remind you though, that not too long ago, the same @evleaks provided a different set of pictures that display many different apps running on the handset (see below). [ The era of booth babes is over: Meet the brainy babes of #CESlive ]
In years past, CES exhibitors used a plethora of scantily clad women to titillate attendees and draw consideration to their consumer electronics products and services. As society matured, the practice become less and less acceptable, and those that were slow to change with the times began drawing angry feedback from those who felt the women involved were being exploited, and the tone they were putting was merely inappropriate. Well, this year at #CESlive the infamous “booth babes ” were virtually nowhere to be found. of their place were many of beautiful, bright, articulate women — and men! — explaining and demonstrating some amazing gadgets. That agencies overwhelmingly still tend to rent attractive public relations and marketing people, specially while they’re female, may well still be viewed as a disservice or even a new manifestation of the same problem. Just like bright, aesthetically pleasing signs draw our attention, thousands of years of evolution have made it so we, as humans, are drawn to bright, aesthetically pleasing persons as well (regardless of gender).
Just last week Verizon started testing the Motorola Droid X2 Gingerbread update in what we name a “soak test”.
It looks as if things went smoothly and the whole thing is a go because the official update page is now being shown right on Verizon. This may still bring the Droid X2 up to Android 2. 3 as well as the intriguing new enhancements to Moto Blur or whatever they are calling their user interface enhancements. The original Motorola Droid X won the same soak attempt and update back at the conclusion of might and has been having fun with these gingerbread cookies for a few months. Now it’s the Droid X2′s turn to get in on the goods. Most of the user interface adjustments we saw on the original X are already in the X2′s current equipment so the user interface shouldn’t alternate a lot for users. With the 2. 3 update you will have to see some small UI enhancements as well as a few of these UI fancy animations we saw on the Droid 3 when it first launched. You’ll have a brand new download manager as well as changes to the on-screen keyboard. Gingerbread brings with it some extra traits for copy and paste that have been much vital that I assume many users will actually enjoy. We can’t forget Google Books, it comes pre-loaded for your convenience now. I simply verify my own Droid X2 and the update is but to grow to be available however we have a feeling it’s going to be coming any time now so hold checking that update page if you’re just too excited and can’t wait. equipment Specifications and information

Ljubljana, Slovenia – HedgeHog announces an update to their most recent app, CircleTime, which introduced what they call the subsequent evolutionary step in calendrical design. The revolutionary design of this distinct calendar reveals a completely new understanding of time.
instead of days being positioned in rows and columns, CircleTime 1. 1 puts them in an orbit, on which one can, by turning it, travel forwards or backwards in time. this is often simply a historical milestone in presenting time. CircleTime introduces an effortless user interface, which relies on touchscreen technological know-how for its feasible adaptation. It uses concentric circles with right labels to accurately demonstrate years, months and days. each time period is shown with a corresponding arc, presenting the precise time position. It can display time difference from today to any other selected day, and additionally between two arbitrarily-selected days. The updated version may even gift daylight hours, but since length of day depends on geographic latitude and longitude as well as the present date, Location Services must be enabled so that it will utilise this added feature. anyway the new feature and other bug fixes, update 1. 1 offers improved stability, appreciably quicker event loading, a 12-hour clock for AM/PM users and the instructions guide for faster familiarisation with the user interface. What was at the start meant only as a “quick fix” later turned out into a great update with the goal to address all the main complaints from the initial users. “Our goal is to make CircleTime grow to be known world-wide and at the comparable time keep perfecting it. This update brings us a step nearer to that,” said Dejan Durini, inventor of CircleTime and project leader. CircleTime presently works on Apple iOS devices and at the time of writing supports the Gregorian calendar within the English language only. Future plans contain porting to iPad and afterwards to other platforms as well. device Requirements:
* 3/4Gen iPhone, iPad, or 3/4Gen iPod touch
* Requires iOS 5. 0 or later
* 6. 8 MB

That rumored Nokia Normandy Android handset is unofficially popping online more and more often, which means that there definitely is something to it.
While Nokia is yet to unveil this handset that’s said to run a custom version of Android, renown leaker @evleaks has released what looks like a press image for the Normandy via its Spanish Twitter account.
As you can see in the image above, the Normandy is expected to arrive in several colors – assuming the product will indeed hit stores – and we finally get to look at its user interface, which hasn’t exactly been made available in previous leaks. We will remind you though, that not too long ago, the same @evleaks provided a different set of images that show various apps running on the handset (see below).

Getting back to the freshly leaked image, we’re looking at an app arrangement on the home screen that looks pretty much like Windows Phone’s Metro UI, although it’s not quite Metro UI, is it? We can also see various apps installed on the device, including Plants vs Zombies, and, from the looks of it, this device has dual SIM support.
That said, Nokia is yet to unveil the Normandy, so we can get back to waiting for an official announcement. Anyone looking forward to a Nokia Android device, even if it’s an entry-level device that runs a forked Android version?
