Samsung debuts 20-megapixel Galaxy NX

galaxy_nx_intro_720Samsung has just pulled the curtain back for its latest Android-powered device, the Samsung Galaxy NX. You’ve likely heard rumors of this product over the last few weeks; it’s a mirrorless Android camera with support for Samsung’s interchangeable NX lenses.

Details include Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, 4.8-inch HD TFT LCD display, and a slew of photo and video settings. As you might expect there are plenty of options to choose from so that you capture the right moment in exactly the manner you’d hope. Smart Mode? Please, that’s just the beginning; there are more than 30 modes to choose from.

Other hardware features include a 1.6 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor, 2 GB RAM, and  WiFi, HSPA+ and, on certain models, 4G LTE connectivity.


One of the key features in this camera is the Advanced Hybrid Autofocus system which allows users to focus with speed that typical mirrorless cameras don’t achieve. Add in the 1/6000th of a second shutter speed and 8.6 frames per second and you’ve got one speed demon on your hands.

We will update this post with additional details as they come to us.

Consumers Getting Nearly $900 in Free Apps Per Year Via Amazon Free App of the Day

We’re always hearing (mostly by competitors) about how “fragmentation” is hurting Android, but in reality, it’s this “fragmentation” that is providing vast choices to the Android consumer. One of those “choices” happens to be Amazon’s App Store. In the beginning, many Android users were wondering where the Amazon App Store would fit in and whether or not another “App Store” was necessary. Then Amazon announced its promotional “Free App of the Day” and Android users began taking notice. Before you knew it, everyone and their mother was downloading the Amazon App Store just so they could get the “Free App of the Day.” It’s now almost the only reason why anyone even uses the Amazon App Store and it’s this very mentality which prompted Android Tapp and its parent company AsSeenOnPhone Inc. to begin analyzing the Amazon App Store and its “Free App of the Day” program.

    No manual control is a no-go for me. I’m still going to go for the OM-D E-M5.
