Xperia V : SONY repousse la sortie à janvier, Jelly Bean installé par défaut

sony-xperia-v-alaune

SONY France indiquait hier sur Twitter que son smartphone Xperia V, dont la sortie était prévue pour cette fin d’année, vient d’être décalé au mois de janvier l’année prochaine. Il arrivera directement sous Jelly Bean.

Pour rappel, ce smartphone a été annoncé durant l’IFA de Berlin en septembre dernier. Il propose un écran de 4,3 pouces (1280 x 720 pixels), une puce Snapdragon S4 à deux coeurs à 1,5 GHz, 1 Go de mémoire vive ainsi que 8 Go dédiés au stockage (extensible via le lecteur de cartes). En outre, il est certifié IP 55 et IP57, ce qui veut dire qu’il résiste à la poussière et à un bain de 90 secondes.
Notez que le constructeur en profite pour annoncer que son tarif a été revu (un peu) à la baisse puisqu’il sera disponible à partir de 529 €, hors abonnement opérateur. Enfin, ce ne sera pas Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) qui sera chargé de l’animer, mais Android 4.1 (ou 4.2) alias Jelly Bean.

Galaxy Note 10.1 : le déploiement d’Android 4.1.1 vient de débuter

D’après nos confrères de Sammobile, le déploiement d’Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) vient débuter sur la tablette Galaxy Note 10.1 de Samsung. Pour le moment, ce sont nos voisins allemands qui ont le droit d’en profiter via une mise à jour OTA (Over The Air) et deux ROM sont déployées : l’une pour le modèle Wi-Fi (N8000XXBLJ9 ou N8000OXABLJ9), l’autre pour les déclinaisons 3G (N8000XXBLJ9). 

 

Ainsi, après le smartphone Galaxy SIII qui est passé récemment sous Android 4.1.1, c’est au tour de la tablette Galaxy Note 10.1 de profiter de la dernière génération du système d’exploitation mobile de Google. Notez que la mise à jour pèse environ 300 Mo et qu’elle comprend bien évidemment toutes les nouveautés incluses au sein de Jelly Bean comme le « Butter Project », Google Now ou encore des notifications interactives. De plus, l’interface utilisateur « Nature UX » du Coréen est bien évidemment de la partie, tout comme les applications spécifiques à la gamme Note et du stylet qui est fourni avec.

Pour vérifier l’arrivée de la mise à jour, il suffit de vous rendre dans les paramètres d’Android, puis d’aller dans l’À propos de l’appareil puis de sélectionner Mise à jour logicielle.

Sony takes control of Xperia S AOSP development

Less than three months after Jean-Baptiste Queru from Google announced the experimental addition of the Xperia S to the Android Open Source Project, Google has decided not to pursue further development. As it stands now, the AOSP build for the Sony Xperia S is able to boot up with support for 3G data and calling, microSD storage, Wi-Fi, multiple sensors and media playback.

While Google’s official involvement in the project has been scaled back in an effort to focus resources on its own hardware, Sony has transplanted the code to its GitHub account, hoping other members of the development community will chip in to keep the project alive.

Check out the video below to get a feel for what Google and Sony have been up to over the past few months.

Motorola DROID RAZR M Android 4.1 update now available

In a somewhat surprising move, Motorola has just announced the official release of the Android 4.1 update for the DROID RAZR M. When the Motorola DROID RAZR M was unveiled in early September, Motorola did promise to deliver the Jelly Bean update for the device before the end of the year. Given Motorola’s history of pushing out updates, it looks like the company is operating with much more aggressive timelines since coming under the Google umbrella.

According to the Tweet, the Android 4.1 update for the RAZR M will be rolled out in phases. But we suspect all handset owners will see an update notification within the next week or two. Motorola has put together a page that highlights a handful of new features in the Android 4.1 update, and Verizon has posted its official installation documentation.

If you’ve already received your Android 4.1 update for your Motorola DROID RAZR M, leave us a comment below and let us know what you like about it.

Google pourraît lancer une carte de crédit associée à Google Wallet

We just had a bomb dropped on us by an anonymous tipster, courtesy of a leaked version of the Google Wallet app – and it was hiding some pretty amazing secrets. Let’s cut to the chase: physical Google Wallet card. That’s happening, and you’ll be able to get one, probably soon.
The physical Google Wallet card will work just like a regular credit card. Whatever your currently selected default card on the Wallet app is, the Wallet card will charge to. It will work anywhere major credit cards are accepted. This is for those scenarios where you don’t have (or want to use) tap and pay. Imagine leaving all your credit cards at home from now on, and just carrying one, and your phone. Sure, it’s not the magical future of using your phone to pay everywhere with a painless tap (let’s face it, tap payments are rarely painless anyway), but this is awesome nonetheless.

Le Samsung Smart Dock, une station d’accueil très complète

We already know that Android is on the path to taking over desktops and laptops, and this new Smart Dock accessory from Samsung proves that point. The Galaxy Smart Dock allows your phone to provide a desktop experience by connecting an HD monitor, external storage device, and USB keyboard and mouse.

The $99 dock features three USB ports, one HDMI port, and 3.5 mm stereo out. This specific dock was designed for the Galaxy Note II, but it appears to also work with the Galaxy S III. We just got a couple Galaxy Note IIs in house to play around with, so we will be sure to pick up this dock and let you know how it performs.
