Samsung’s new smaller lower end version of the S4, the S4 mini was released today. The new model will ensure Samsung a place in the market for more cost-conscious buyers, though the company hasn’t yet said how much the device will cost or when it will go on sale.
The Galaxy S line has become not just the top contender in the Android phone market, but also the top rival to Apple’s influential and profitable iPhone line.
Although the new phone has many of the S4′s software features, tools to take and organize photos, share content, translate text, and get travel assistance, the hardware is a step down. The Mini model is lighter, at 3.8 ounces compared to 4.6 ounces for the S4 and packs a 1.7GHz dual-core processor instead of a 1.9GHz quad-core model. Its battery is rated at 1,900mAh instead of 2,600.
In addition, the S4 Mini has an 8-megapixel camera versus the S4′s 13 megapixels, although obviously there’s a lot more to image quality than just pixel count.
The phone will come in two colors, black and white.
The Proofreaders’ Proofreader who recently redesigned their website at www.proofreadersproofreader.com now also have a Professional QR Code to use for their online and offline marketing as a ‘get more information’ QR Code for users to scan with their mobile device such as a Smartphone. Once scanned, the user now has a mobile optimized menu navigation to call, text,email, visit the website and social media channels right from their Smartphone.
Jessica Keet from The Proofreaders’ Proofreader decided that their old website needed to be re-done and enhanced completely. She recently hired Razor Micro to redesign the whole website and the new site www.proofreadersproofreader.com went live a few days ago.
The new website will definitely bring across a better online presence and ‘first impression’ for the company which provides proofreading and copyediting services to book authors, screenplay writers etc. As Jessica says to authors and writers which makes so much sense “Having your words professionally proofread and copyedited is an essential step in ensuring your words are understood as you intended them”.
If you love images of outer space, the good news is that the Hawaiian Board of Land and Natural Resources has backed building what’s to be the world’s largest, most powerful optical telescope atop the volcano Mauna Kea. The Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) will have a primary mirror of 492 segments measuring some 100 feet across, giving it the power to image objects 13 billion light years away, near the beginning of the universe.
It may also photograph planets outside our solar system with unprecedented detail!
