Samsung Galaxy S III non-Pentile 720p AMOLED tipped

More mystery and intrigue around the hotly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III, as Korean news reports tip not only a 4.65-inch 720p display like the Galaxy Nexus, but a move away from the much-maligned pentile panel technology. According to DDaily, the upcoming Galaxy S III will use a Super AMOLED Plus display running at 1280 x 720 for 316ppi density - only a little short of the iPhone 4S' Retina Display - but not using the reduced pixel count that pentile forces. The rumors tally with talk that another recently rumored device, the GT-i9300, is indeed a midrange model not the Galaxy S III.

Asteroids smacked constantly with microscopic high-speed impacts

The Japanese asteroid probe Hayabusa was sent to an asteroid called 25143 Itokawa years ago. It was recovered in June of 2010.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 4 2012

This week started with a total restructuring of the heads at RIM while they consider licensing BlackBerry 10 and Chris Davies assures us that RIM's new CEO is a Placeholder, not a prophet. Of course other than that there's just a brand new Year of the Dragon in China and a radiation storm hitting the Earth courtesy of the Sun. Auroras and full video documentation from NASA intact. And HP's webOS is now open source including its good pal Enyo - and John Rubinstein is gone!

O2 sharing phone numbers for mobile surfers (but not everyone)

UK carrier O2 finds itself embroiled in data protection controversy today, with allegations that the operator is revealing mobile users cellphone number to each website they visit on their phone. According to Lewis Peckover, buried in among the header data from each O2 visitor is a line revealing their own mobile number; he set up a site to show off just what O2 is including. However, while some O2 users are corroborating the claims, our own tests have failed to do so. Update: Temporary workaround after the cut.

Motorola Lapdock 100 Review

Motorola Lapdock 100 Review

Motorola has since the first ATRIX device been pushing a mobile environment it calls Webtop, and here in one of two of its newest Webtop-based devices, the Lapdock 100, working in this world is a strangely enticing option. One of the set of tests I'm putting this Lapdock through is actually creating this post using the Lapdock itself NEARLY exclusively. I've not quite been able to bring myself to use it for any sort of image processing yet, but everything inside typing, highlighting, right-clicking, and the basics of blogging seem to be working just fine thus far. How's this device hooked up with a Motorola smartphone work out for the rest of an everyday set of activities? We shall see!

Nokia Lumia 800 camera samples (vs iPhone 4S/GSII)

Nokia is particularly proud of the photographic abilities of its smartphones, and so when they said we could borrow of Lumia 800 here at Nokia World to test out the 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, we thought we'd take it for a spin. Since we also had an iPhone 4S and a Samsung Galaxy S II weighing down our pockets, it only seemed fair to shoot a few comparison shots as well. Check out how they hold up, plus a 720p HD video sample from the Lumia 800, after the cut.

iPhone 5 facing shortages over touch trouble tip insiders

iPhone 5 stocks could be constrained after touch panel defects have been discovered to affect some units, it's reported, with issues in the lamination process supposedly to blame. Some of the panels supplied by Wintek have been found to suffer "delayed bubble" problems, DigiTimes reports, where bubbles of gas are trapped in-between the multi-layer films used. There's no word on exactly what proportion of Wintek's touch panels are believed to be affected.
