Here comes the first Jolla phone which runs on Meego OS from the Finninsh Maker.Jolla promises a 4.5-inch screen, a dual-core processor, 4G connectivity, 16GB of internal memory, a micro-SD card slot and a 8-megapixel rear camera. It also has a user removable battery courtesy of the removable back plate.
Jolla also says the device will be compatible with Android apps.
It is up for pre-order for 399 Euros, and Jolla says that it plans to ship the device by the end of 2013.
Jolla was founded by a group of ex-Nokia employees who worked on the MeeGo OS featured in the Nokia N9.
Nokia has not yet officially launched the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in India but The Mobile Store has the two devices under preorder on its website. According to the website, the Lumia 920 will be priced at Rs 39,999 and the Lumia 820 at Rs 29,999.
We Expect Nokia to Officially Launch these phones 0n Jan 10 2013.
Apple has finally brought iTunes Store to India which is a welocme news for Apple Users.Songs are available from Rs 7-15 and albums from Rs 70
India will be a huge market in terms of sheer volume.From what we have seen Flipkart offers cheaper prices than ITunes.The average price of a song is Rs12 and new Bollywood albums such as that of Dabangg 2 is priced at Rs 96. On the other hand the price of single tracks is Rs 9 at Flipkart’s Flyte store and the complete album costs Rs 72. That being the case it needs to be seen if people will till go ahead and buy from Apple than from the cheapest alternative. The fact that Flipkart’s tracks are DRM free and does not need a special client to work might work to its advantage.
Movies can also be bought.For Example HD version of Ek Tha Tiger can be downloaded for Rs 490 and SD version is available for Rs 290. The movie can also be streamed for Rs120 in HD and for Rs90 if you’re happy with SD. The DVD of Ek Tha Tiger is currently selling for Rs 299 so these prices are very fair.
Sathyam Theatre(Serene Screen) is now equipped with Dolby Atmos.Its a first in India.Sivaji 3D becomes the first Indian movie to have its audio mastered with Dolby’s new technology. While no changes were made to original film, the audio was re-mastered in Dolby Atmos.
Dolby calls Atmos a new audio platform, which is wildly different from the traditional surround sound setup consumers are used to. The idea is to provide a more realistic and natural sound experience. Object oriented sound goes well beyond the traditional channel based sound by creating points of objects in the sound field that can controlled independently rather than having an entire channel with a particular sound.
Apart from giving more control to the content creator, Atmos allows for overhead speakers creating a more realistic sound field. Additionally there can be up to 64 speakers that are controlled individually.
An advantage of Atmos technology is that it is a scalable platform that takes into account the size of theater and renders a customized sound for different theaters of different sizes with one master audio working with many theaters.
It also allows for a hybrid approach that meshes traditional surround sound elements with object oriented sound fields. Atmos enabled theaters don’t only have more speakers than an average theater but it makes use of better full range speakers with each and every speaker having an amplifier of its own.
Because of its object oriented nature the sound mixer can place different sounds to different speakers unlike the surround sound format that has maximum audio placed in the front channel.
Sathyam Cinemas Kiran Reddy claimed that the total cost of implementing Atmos technology to the Serene theater in Chennai was approximately in the range of Rs 20 lakhs that included new speakers, treatment to the hall and a new Atmos processor. Admittedly, Reddy said that the processor used in the Serene theater is a beta product and is not yet commercially available hence the price of the processor was not taken into account. He also said that there were new theaters that were being constructed with support for Atmos technology baked in, and said implementing the technology to a current theater was definitely more costly.
