Alcatel One Touch Idol X+

Alcatel One Touch Idol X+

140317-alcatel-onetouch-idol-x+-2
The One Touch Idol X+ is seen as an update over its existing One Touch Idol X. While it retains the same 5″ Full HD IPS display, the new models get a huge boost in processing power with Mediatek’s Octa-Core (8 cores) MT6592 processor that’s running at 2GHz.
It retains the same 2GB RAM, 16GB of storage with expandable microSD slot, a main 13MP camera and 2MP front facing shooter. In case that extra fire power would consume more battery, the Idol X+ packs a larger 2,500mAh capacity battery which is 500mAh more than the current Idol X. Overall, it is still weighs 130 grams but comes with a slight bulk of 7.9mm thick (Idol X = 6.9mm).

Next is the One Touch Idol Alpha which is a smart phone that appears to be focused on premium design. It is wrapped with an aluminium frame and comes with an interesting transparent element top and bottom which is reminiscent of Sony’s Xperia NXT transparent belt design.
The front comes with a 4.7″ IPS edge to edge display that does 1280×720 pixels resolution. Internally it runs on a modest 1.2GHz Quad-Core Mediatek MT6589 processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. It also gets a 13MP rear camera but over at the front it comes with a 1.3MP camera that does HD 720p videos. Packed with a 2,000mAh battery, the Idol Alpha weighs 117.4grams and is 7.5mm thick.

Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt Bugatti, the fourth special

Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt-13
This is the fourth special Veyron in the Les Légendes de Bugatti six-episode series, the Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt Bugatti. Like the previous three, it honours the important people in the company’s history.
Rembrandt Bugatti is the brother of company founder Ettore and one of the most important sculptors of the early 20th century. He became famous through his animal sculptures, and cast a large part of his work in bronze. The pieces are now on display in various collections and museums across the world.
One of his most significant works is the sculpture of a dancing elephant. It decorates the radiator of the Bugatti Type 41 Royale and became the brand’s symbol. The First World War drove Rembrandt Bugatti to take his life in Paris in 1916. He was just 31 years old.
Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt-12
“Rembrandt Bugatti was an exceptional sculptor. He represents the strong artistic roots of the Bugatti family, as did his father, Carlo,” said Dr Wolfgang Schreiber, president of Bugatti.
The Rembrandt Bugatti is based on the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse. Its 8.0 litre W16 engine achieves an astounding 1,200 PS and 1,500 Nm of torque, enough to push the car from 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds. With a max speed of 408.84 km/h with the roof down, the Vitesse is the fastest production roadster ever built.
The body of the Rembrandt is largely composed of bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon as a gesture to the the man’s favoured material. The car’s lower half is painted in “Noix” light brown, the Bugatti horseshoe and EB rear logo gleam in platinum, while the wheels are painted in dark “Firefinch” and “Noix” browns. Rembrandt’s signature has been lasered onto the petrol and oil caps.
Bugatti Veyron Rembrandt-17
Inside, the Vitesse is completely upholstered with leather in light “Cognac” brown. The rear centre box between the seats is decorated with Rembrandt’s famous elephant sculpture, cast in bronze of course. The door trim is lined with braided leather in the softly contrasting colours of “Cognac” and “Coffee”.
Other interior details specific to this Legends Vitesse are the insert of bronze-coloured clear-coated carbon on the extended centre console with the lettering Les Légendes de Bugatti and Rembrandt Bugatti’s elephant, and the door sill plates displaying the sculptor’s portrait and signature.
The 2.18 million euro (nett price, RM9.95 million) Rembrandt Bugatti comes after the Jean-Pierre Wimille, Jean Bugatti and Meo Costantini special editions. All nine examples of the three Legends (three each) have found buyers. The three Rembrandts should easily follow suit.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is also coming to Celcom

140311-celcom-malaysia-samsung-galaxy-s5
Celcom too has revealed that the new Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available on their network. They have just placed a teaser image on their website and it looks like a simultaneous launch by the big 3 telcos in Malaysia. DiGi has just initiated their registration of interest for the new flagship device yesterday with 3 colour options available.
According to their product page, the Galaxy S5 model isn’t confirmed yet as they have listed either 16GB/32GB of on-board storage available. Knowing that the on-board TouchWiz interface and features does take up a significant amount of storage, we hope that we’re getting the larger 32GB version. The Galaxy S5 is expected to be available next month on 11th April.

Huawei MediaPad M1 – 8″ Tablet with Front Stereo Speakers

Huawei MediaPad M1 Hands-on Photos

140313-huawei-mediapad-m1-handson-01
140313-huawei-mediapad-m1-handson-02
It was officially announced during Mobile World Congress where we have managed to get our hands on one. In the hands, it is about the same size as an iPad mini with a 8″ IPS display that’s rather decent with a 1280×800 pixels resolution.
On-board it runs on Huawei’s sister company Hi-Silicon Quad-Core processor that’s clocked at 1.6GHz. There’s also 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage that can be expanded using microSD card. You’ll also get a 5MP camera at the back without any assisted flash and over at the front, there’s a 1MP Camera. The battery has a rather generous 4,800mAh capacity which can be reversed charge like a battery pack to charge your smart phone. That’s not all, there’s 4G LTE and it even lets you make phone calls as well.
In the hands, the device is decently built with an aluminium frame but it isn’t as refined when compared to an iPad mini. Video playback experience on the MediaPad M1 is pretty good especially with the stereo sound coming from its pair of front facing speakers. Software wise, the MediaPad M1 runs on Android 4.2 which is skinned with their custom Emotion UI 2.0. It lacks an App Drawer, so all installed apps and shortcuts would appear on the home screen.
No word on the pricing but this should be an affordable tablet with a decent screen and better than average audio output. Watch our hands-on video with additional photos after the break.

Huawei MediaPad X1. High-end 7″ tablet to take on the Nexus 7

140313-huawei-mediapad-x1-handson-01 
Huawei has also announced the high-end MediaPad X1 tablet. Seen as a direct competitor to the Nexus 7 (2013), the MediaPad X1 comes with a high-resolution Full HD 7″ display that does 1920×1200 resolution and runs on a Quad-Core 1.6GHz processor which is the same as the MediaPad M1.
In the hands, the build quality is really impressive with a premium aluminium body that’s incredibly thin and light. It feels very compact for a 7 incher thanks to its thin bezel design. Overall it is just 7.2mm thick and weighs just 239 grams. As comparison the iPad mini (with Retina Display) is thicker at 7.5mm while the Nexus 7 is still heavier at 290 grams.
It also comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage that also can be expanded with microSD. There’s also 4G LTE support and you can actually use this as a phone as it comes with a earpiece speaker at the top. Despite having a rather slim profile, Huawei still manages to cram a 5,000mAh battery into the MediaPad X1. For taking pictures, it packs a rather high 13MP sensor from Sony with assisted LED flash while the front comes with a 5MP shooter. If you’re looking for a high-end tablet that makes calls and is compact in size, the MediaPad X1 is definitely worth considering.

VOLVO全新Drive-E动力系统海外试驾报导





     在全球車壇當中,若提到車輛安全性,那麼來自瑞典的VOLVO可能是多數人腦中第一個出現的品牌,不過VOLVO所追求的可不只是單純的車輛安全, 而是「以人為本」的企業精神,除了要保護車內所有人的安全與健康之外,車外的人也是VOLVO所關心的對象,而這點更是從V40上搭載的全球首創行人氣囊 可見一斑;可想而知,VOLVO對於人們所生活的大自然環境,也相當重視,所以從2008年開始,就為旗下車款推出了低耗能、低碳排的DRIVe車型,而 這次AutoNet汽車日報遠赴法國尼斯進行試駕的「全新Drive-E動力系統」,其命名的概念便是由「DRIVe」進化而來。




[size=-1]T6車型所使用的2.0L直四雙增壓汽油引擎



     在綠能環保的浪潮席捲全球車壇的趨勢之下,各品牌都相當致力於開發出小排氣量、高效率的引擎,VOLVO亦是如此!全新Drive-E動力系統也是 在這樣的背景下誕生,同時也代表著VOLVO對於Downsizing趨勢的回應;在以往,VOLVO旗下具有相當多樣化的動力陣容,包括直四、直五、直 六以及V8,但在導入Drive-E動力系統後,VOLVO旗下無論是汽油或柴油車款,引擎陣容將全數統一為2.0L直列四缸的配置。


[size=-1]D4車型所使用的2.0L直四兩階段渦輪增壓柴油引擎



[size=-1]T6動力與八速自排變速箱的結合


[size=-1]這具八速自排變速箱是由VOLVO與日本知名變速箱大廠AISIN合作開發


     事實上Drive-E動力系統所指的其實是全新打造、具有雙增壓、渦輪增壓、燃油缸內直噴系統的2.0L直列四缸汽油引擎以及搭載i-ART共軌噴 射供油、渦輪增壓系統的2.0L直列四缸柴油引擎,最後再加上日本變速箱大廠AISIN合作開發的八速自排變速箱,所形成的整個動力系統;而且在汽、柴油 引擎排氣量都在2.0L的水準之下,可根據不同車型需求進行動力輸出的彈性調校,其中汽油引擎的馬力範圍可在140hp至306hp之間作調整,柴油引擎 則是在120hp至230hp之間。


[size=-1]這次試駕的車輛為S60 T6、XC60 T6以及V60 D4




     在這樣的調整之下,對於消費者來說可說是獲益良多,首先由於其2.0L的排氣量等級,就算是買到最大馬力306hp的車型,也不會因為排氣量增大而 必須多繳稅,另外在引擎輕量化、並導入燃油缸內直噴、i-ART共軌噴射供油以及渦輪增壓等技術之下,不但提高了燃油經濟效益,也減少了CO2排放量;另 外在變速箱的部分,根據原廠表示,VOLVO與日本變速箱大廠AISIN之間有著長年的合作關係,這具全新八速自排變速箱的加入,不但讓新引擎的動力傳輸 更有效率,也能提供給消費者順暢無比的駕馭感受。


[size=-1]現場有3輛配備R-Design套件的車型



     而我認為,全新Drive-E動力系統可說是VOLVO迎向新未來的一大步,畢竟這是VOLVO在進入中國吉利集團之後,首度自主推出的全新動力科 技,除了具備模組化的特色之外,在未來的新車上,Drive-E動力系統更將會與同樣是VOLVO自主研發的SPA底盤平台結合,相信能夠展現出不錯的戰 力,此外,Drive-E動力系統也再度證明了,VOLVO除了具備傲人的安全科技,在動力系統的開發上,也有相當了得的功夫;在概略的介紹VOLVO全 新Drive-E動力系統之後,未來幾天當中,我們將以文字帶領各位讀者一同體驗Drive-E動力系統高效能、高性能的魅力,千萬要鎖定我們的後續報 導。
