This week saw warmer weather across the country, with some areas even breaking record highs for the month of March. If you were out enjoying sun-filled patios or walking your dog in a t-shirt mid-March, you may have missed some of this week’s tech news. So to help you out, here’s this week’s list of weekend reading:
Nokia Lumia 900 now available to preorder
Back in February, we told you about the Nokia Lumia 900. This awesome, new device is the first Windows LTE smartphone and it actually won best in show at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The device will be making its exclusive debut at Rogers in the coming weeks but if you’ve been drooling over this one since January, now’s your chance to preorder or reserve it. Just head over to http://www.rogers.com/lumia900.
Introducing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE
Speaking of LTE devices, you may have missed the addition of Samsung’s latest tablet to our awesome and ever-growing lineup of LTE devices. This tablet is the thinnest and fastest tablet yet. At only 8.6mm thin and under 1lb (453g), this powerful Android tablet is ultra portable. And, with LTE technology, this tablet is super fast allowing you to browse, stream, upload and download with ease on the world’s fastest wireless network technology.
Your favourite Android apps
Recently, there was a great conversation happening in our Community Forums about apps for Android. From battery savers like Juice Defender to awesome game, picture and music apps, there’s some great suggestions from your fellow Android users. And, if you have a favourite app of your own, why not jump in? If you’re new to the forums, here’s how to participate.
An infographic that’s all about you!
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could generate an infographic that was all about you? Earlier this week, Intel released the “What about Me?” app that gathers info from your Facebook, Twitter and YouTube profiles to create an infographic based on your social media profile. I gave this a try today and it’s pretty neat. The infographic it creates tracks your interests based on what you tweet and write in status updates. There’s also a section that shows your most popular picture and post based on other people’s likes and comments. Pretty neat. Definitely something to try out this weekend.
