The Fairphone FP1 is a social project by Fairphone, which aimed to develop a smartphone designed and produced with minimal harm to people and environment. Back in May, Fairphone started its crowdfunding campaign and after it reached its initial goal of 5,000 sold FP1s in June, the production of the first 25,000 Fairphones started. Running Android 4.2 and powered by a MediaTek MT6589 quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU at 1.3 GHz, the Fairphone FP1 supports dual-SIM quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dualband UMTS/HSPA+ at 900/2100 MHz as well as WiFi b/g/n at 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Bluetooth 3.0+HS and Bluetooth 4.0, an FM radio and AGPS.

OLYMPICS: Samsung WOW App for Android Connects Millions Worldwide to Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:19 CET under 04 - Android News

Back in October I wrote about Samsung's upcoming WOW (Wireless Olympic Works) app which the official Olympics sponsor has now launched for Android. The Public WOW app offers personalized experience, athlete cheering feature and tutorials on all 15 sporting events for Sochi 2014. It's said to provide sports fans with real-time access to event schedules, latest reports on results, medal standings and Olympic records reliably and fast. The Public WOW app is - as mentioned in October - an extension of Samsung's custom WOW for the Olympic Family, which is a wireless communications platform developed to ensure smarter communications and smoother wireless operations of the Olympic Winter Games by offering news and information about the Games to officials and staffs.
