Canon EOS 650D unconfirmed features

Today CanonRumors has announces some more news regarding Canon EOS 650D. According to them the new canon EOS will have new 18-135 lens with a silent autofocus motor as the new feature of the lens.

There have also been a few suggestions the next Rebel will have a touch screen and built in WiFi. But keep in mind that any of these features cannot be confirmed at this time either.
Other unconfirmed specs show the camera to be 18.1mp and running DIGIC 5, which should improve noise performance and overall image quality.

They also predicted the announcement and complete spec for T4i/650D will be released after the 5D Mark III begins shipping across the globe this week and most probably a new Rebel could arrive before NAB Show which will be held April mid week in Las Vegas.

iPhone 5 to support 4G LTE

Apple unveiled this week the new iPad, iPad HD. One of the major new features is the option to get 4G LTE on the iPad. 4G LTE is offered by Verizon and AT&T in the United States. The coverage area of 4G LTE is still far from complete. Verizon's 4G LTE network is available in 196 cities. On top of that the 4G LTE chip inside the iPad is not supporting European 4G LTE networks. Apple just made the 4G LTE option for the US carriers. Did Apple get paid by AT&T and Verizon to offer a 4G LTE iPad? Maybe. In any case Apple has jumped the gun and is now offering LTE connectivity on the iPad. This makes it very likely or even sure that the new iPhone 5 expected this fall will have 4G LTE connectivity.

Apple needs though to support international 4G LTE markets with the new iPhone 5 to not disappoint and confuse even more consumers abroad.

Nikon D4 is also delayed for another month?

Update 3-9-2012:
Finally Nikon is back in track.
The Nikon D4 camera is again open for pre-order on Amazon with a release date of March 20th, 2012. Amazon stopped taking pre-orders just few hours after the D4 announcement. They probably now know how many cameras they will get in the first shipment and started taking pre-orders again.

The Nikon D800 is also listed with a March 20th release date. No release date is given for the D800E.

Original Post:

I should not hear this as a beloved Nikon Fan. But we have to accept the truth. While Canon is getting ready for the big day on March 2nd with Canon 5D Mark III, There are rumors going on about delaying Nikon D4 for another one month. I'm already disappointed with Nikon when I hear the story about delaying the release date for D800E and this is a shocking for me.

Proposed release dates for New Nikon product line as follows
  • Nikon D800: March 22nd
  • Nikon D800E: April 12th (B&H has listed April 16th)
  • Nikon D4: second half of April
From above, both Nikon D4 and Nikon D800E have changed their release dates. So our only hope is Nikon D800 at the moment. Let's forget about the release date. I still believe Nikon is (still) the best DSLR in universe. Please do comment on that.

In fact, that would make it the only tablet on the market with that feature.

To find out exactly what it's called, and exactly how it specs out as soon as is humanly possible, ride along with Gizmodo on the iPad HD Liveblog

Samsung Flexible displays will be released within a year,

Samsung has been promising flexible OLED displays for what seems like ages now, but an executive confirmed yesterday that these new trick displays are on track to ship "within a year."  Last year we were promised that we'd see them in 2012, so while "within a year" could mean early 2013 it looks like they are largely on schedule.  We call them trick displays and you've no doubt seen some crazy images like the photo to the left of a wavy smartphone, but in reality these displays will bring advantages other than odd-shaped devices.

Since the displays are flexible and don't use glass they will be nearly unbreakable, meaning the next time you drop your phone your display isn't going to shatter.  We've seen some crazy prototypes of paper-esque displays and see-though panels, but what what's likely to come to market are rounded displays that were not possible with traditional LCD or AMOLED panels.  Flexible displays make things like watch phones and wearable computers a lot more practical, and as the technology progresses we will likely see more innovative applications as designers think outside the box.
