HTC phones getting PlayStation Suite?


Anonymous sources have The Path Untaken that Sony will be allowing their rival smartphone maker HTC to have the PlayStation Certification for its devices. A official announcement is expected at the MWC show at the end of the month.

This will allow devices to play PSOne games (first on my list will be RidgeRacer and Ace Combat) and access to the Android version of the Sony Entertainment Network.

Facebook for Windows Phone gets upgrade


The Facebook client for the Windows Phone system has been updated to version 2.3, bringing with it a host of enhanced features. The precise details of these remain a bit fuzzy. An announcement on its Facebook page confirmed that the refresh will bring a redesigned profile and panoramic design, along with “news feed performance improvements,” including support for filters. Other updates with this  include support for Facebook Groups, pages and banner images, which can now be changed directly from the handset. The update is supposed to be available today but I haven’t seen it in the store yet. Here’s the link for all those who are interested: http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=135892916448833

ZTE Light Tab 2 launches in the UK


The ZTE Tabet 2 is now available in the UK after a rather long wait. To help your memory, for just £235 you can snag the 7-inch which is powered by Android 2.3 and complete with a 1.4GHz single-core processor. It also has dual cameras, WiFi and 3G connectivity (no word on service providers but there be some limit to which ones work). You’ll also be getting 4GB internal storage alongside a microSD slot for added space (but microSD cards cost next to nothing these days).

UK’s Supreme Court joins Twitter

The highest court in Britain has opened a Twitter account with the main objective of sharing information about its latest judgements.

@UKSupremeCourt is run by the court’s commmunications team who promise 2-3 tweets each week on the cases, judgements, and any other announcements from the court. The first messages from this new account were to share the process of the swearing in of Lord Reed (the newest justice to join the Court).

In one of the account’s earliest tweets, the courts communications team tweeted a  link to a page on the Supreme Court’s website where it has posted a “Twitter Policy”. They warn users not to be expected to be followed back. It also says ” It helps to keep discussions open by limiting the use of Direct Messages”. If it does follow anyone, however, that “does not imply endorsement of any kind by the UK Supreme Court“.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Leaks


A certain Olympus Micro Four Thirds  camera has been far from shy prior to its official unveiling (whenever this happens).  Today I had a rather nice email from a friend giving me some intel about this camera to follow up on the earlier leak I did (http://thepathuntaken.wordpress.com/2012/01/21/olympus-leaked-image-of-the-om-d-camera/)

This person suggests the E-M5 could sport a “super fast” autofocus and 3D tracking system, an external “weather-sealed” GN10 flash (which will come very in handy with this British weather) and additional filters. If the rumors are to be believed, you’ll be able to see the effects of the image stabilization through the electronic viewfinder.

Nikon has confirmed the 36.3-megapixel D800


The Nikon D800 adopts many new features from the D4 (The D800′s big brother to say), such as the same Advanced Scene Recognition System with 91k-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering III, 1080/30p HD video with 20 adjustable audio levels and uncompressed HDMI output, in-camera two-consecutive-shot HDR and Active D-Lighting. In addition there is a difference in resolution (remember, more megapixels doesn’t translate to better quality images), you gain a 2.7x in focal length (effectively multiplies the focal length of any lens by 2.7) which means it will bring you closer to your subject without the need to a longer lens or teleconverter (very handy for those on a budget).

The Nikon D800 isn’t the most compact full-frame DSLR that Nikon’s released to date. It’s noticeably taller than the D700 (by roughly half an inch), with a higher pentaprism and smooth appearance. But a new body design isn’t the only element differentiating the D800 from its predecessor. The camera offers excellent contrast-detection autofocus, allowing you to sharpen your subjects much more quickly while in live view.

The D800 also offers video improvements, and lets you capture 29 minutes and 59 seconds in a single clip in normal quality mode because of the D8000′s larger footprint, you’ll need to upgrade your grip along with the camera. The MB-D12 attachment uses the same battery as the D4, and boosts the camera’s burst mode from four frames per second to six in DX mode.

And what about price?  As to date Nikon UK hasn’t given a date (To my knowledge) but as seen as I have one Ill do a update : D

As for launch dates the end of April is a rumor.
