Nintendo uncovers the Wii mini; affordable with a few compromises

Only yesterday, there was rumors on internet that Nintendo is aspiring to make a new Wii. And this product will be smaller, less expensive, and more compact. It does no take much for the rumors to come true, as Nintendo’s has lastly uncovered it, named the Wii Mini.

It will be accessible from December 7, and the package will comprise of a red Wii Remote Plus a Nunchuk controller. The console is more flat-rested, which must be disappointing for the vertical admirers. Sadly, it will not support GameCube games such as the newest Wii. It will also lack the capability to connect to web for Virtual Console or Wii Ware gaming titles.

The absence of online support is strange considering the Japanese major’s policy to be more online-friendly as we’ve seen in the Wii U. perhaps, this device is aimed at consumers who haven’t ever used a gaming console before, or only desires an affordable Wii. At the moment, Nintendo has not hinted anything if it will be accessible outside of the Canadian market in its press release. Only thing that we are certain of is its reasonable price tag. It will be offered for $99 in Canada.

There are some reports that the Japanese gaming giant has no intentions of releasing the Wii mini in the UK. Their complete focus in on the newly-launched Wii U. Also, no one in the UK will settle for a gaming console with no online support. Still, if any of you believes otherwise, please let us know through the comments section below.

A number of confirmation e-mails sent to Verizon users’ display that the Windows Phone 8 running Nokia Lumia 822 has already left for their home. The affirmations display the delivery date for the smartphone as November 15th, which is the upcoming Thursday.

The HTC 8X will start shipping by November 21st as per the Big Reds website, is priced at $199.99 on pact. The Nokia Lumia 822 is a Verizon exclusive. The smartphone is similar to the Nokia Lumia 820 though the Verizon variant offers a bigger capacity battery at 1800mAh Vs 1650, a 1.2MP front-viewing snapper against the 0.3MP camera on the frontage of the Nokia Lumia 820.

Apple earning fewer profits from iPad mini

Not to anyone’s surprise, Apple earned less in total profits in comparison with the quarter before. It seems like that could be a drift, as the telecommunication giant has also stated in the earnings call that the iPad mini is getting retailed at profit margins considerably lower the average Apple gadget.

Apples CFO Peter Oppenheimer stated that though the tablet is getting retailed at a much better cost than direct rivals such as the Google Nexus 7 or Amazon Kindle Fire, the slate’s gross margin is considerably less than the manufacturers average. Sadly, the American manufacturer did not explain this at all, thus we are left to guess.

New ipad White

It appears sensible that the aluminum case of the tablet is more expensive than the rivals’ plastic and rubber casing. Apart from this, we are seeing trouble guessing the huge dissimilarities. Apple iPad mini uses a 2 year old processor; where as the Nexus Tegra is merely a year old. Both the Nexus Fire have tinier screens, though higher resolutions, thus the price of the screen might not be much different between them the iPad. Obviously, the Nexus Fire are both retailed at cost, whilst the iPad Mini will make something of a profit.

It must be noticed though that one of the major grievances against the Cupertino-based mobile phone maker has been that the firm overcharges strives to get as much profit from users as possible. Considering this report, and the reports that the manufacturer has collected fewer profits for the third quarter, some of you may argue that Tim Cook has begun to run the company his way.

3 million Galaxy Note 2 units old in one month

Apparently Samsung is not in a mood to allow anyone to come near its top position. After the massive success of its flagship model, the Galaxy S3, the South Korean telecommunication is relishing in the success of its phablet –the Galaxy Note 2. The 5.5” tablet computer is now present in 3 million pockets all over the world, and this has been achieved only in 37 days after its September release.

The brisk Galaxy Note 2 Deals sale implies in not just creation of a new category in the smartphone market, but also of popularity of the segment. When the first Note was released, there was distrusted in the market about its appeal. Still, the handset (if you call it one) sold decent units. Even many other manufacturers can be seen entering the newly-found category in the technology world.

The figure is not as astonishing as Galaxy S3 distant from Apple’s iPhone 5 sales, but it is still an achievement for the manufacturer, and for any smartphone in the phablet category. The initial Galaxy Note sold only 2million units 4 months after its debut (way more than the initial anticipations), thus the Note 2 is a sound success without a doubt. And with the holiday shopping season coming, many of you would aspire for this device.

So guys, what you do you think? Is the phablet category here to stay for a very long time ? And will more and more users will be tempted for a huge smartphone like this? Let us know through the comments section give below.

Apple and Microsoft all-set to battle it out; Surface and iPad mini hitting market soon

This week two technology giants are ready to go one-on-one with their new tablet PCs. Microsoft has left no stone unturned to convince the technology world that Surface is the best slate in the market, and is ready to organize an exclusive event on Thursday. Apple which is an infamously secretive firm, is striving to keep things under wraps before the official announcement. But, this does not deter dedicated rumor sites to speculate probable specs, and obviously exciting Apple fan boys.

The tablet PC market is pretty competitive, with Amazon offering Kindle Fire and Google’s homegrown Nexus 7 giving rivals a run for their money. Interestingly, both the devices cater to the 7-inch segment. The Cupertino-based brand must have sensed this opportunity, and probably desires to annex this territory as well, eliminating rivals brutally.

Anyway, the Surface seems like a bold product with a number of enhancements, such as the magnetic case that transforms into a keypad a premium body. There is no snapper the focus is clearly on Office software. This indicates that the Redmond-based giant pitches this more as a productivity tool, though there is also an absence of 3G connectivity. The major attraction is the Metro, which is the tile-based navigation interface, and is wonderfully configured. Pre-orders for this slate has been already labeled as sold out in the United States. It is being released along with Windows 8, which is Microsofts long due OS update, touted as the largest amendment in Windows history, substituting the memorable desktop with Metros tiles.
