OFFICIAL: Sony announces the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 WiFi Lens Cameras
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:50 CET under 01 - General News

Also today, at its IFA press conference in Berlin, Sony introduced the two "lens-style" QX series cameras we have heard about before and which are said to bring new levels of fun and creativity to the mobile photography experience. The Cyber-shot DSC-QX100 and DSC-QX10 models utilize WiFi connectivity to instantly transform a connected smartphone into a versatile, powerful photographic tool, allowing it to shoot high-quality images and HD videos to rival a premium compact camera. It's an entirely new and different way for consumers to capture and share memories with friends and family. The new compact, ultra-portable cameras can be attached to a connected phone with a supplied mechanically adjustable adapter, or can be held separately in hand or even mounted to a tripod while still maintaining all functionality and connectivity with the smartphone.

According to a recent survey, 43 % of the audience is using smartphones, tablets or laptops. The German living room TV is still the fire place of the nation, but respondents supplement their viewing experience with smartphones, tablets and notebooks to get information from the Internet. Especially young people are looking for further information about the main characters of the current movie or exchange information while watching TV with friends on Social Networks. These are the results of a representative survey which was conducted by the market research company Ipsos.

OBSERVATION: Is Twitter trialing Picture Preview within Mobile Apps Timeline?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:47 CET under 01 - General News

Ever, since Twitter was release, sharing photos via the micro-blogging service was one of the most important and used features but it took Twitter a little bit longer to realize it by introducing its own photo and picture hosting which is now alive for roughly two years. And indeed, within my timeline this feature is heavily used but so far, you only knew that the tweet contained a photo by the respective URL, within the tweet (for instance pic.twitter.com/xyz) and only opening the tweet showed the respective picture; doesn't matter if on the web, Twitter's original Android, iOS or Windows Phone apps. However, yesterday evening my timeline on one of my Android devices showed me the picture preview straight within the timeline, without opening the respective tweet.
