After bringing the Surface Pro 4 to India earlier this year, we are now hearing that the Surface Book might get a release window as well. Evidently, Microsoft is eyeing the June-July time frame for the launch. While our trusted source hasn’t yet indicated whether the premium notebook would be sold at par with the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina Display model in terms of pricing, we believe that the base model could be priced around Rs. 1,15,000. In the US, the Surface Book starts upwards of $1499 ( approximately Rs. 101,932) for the base model.
Moto X Tablet To Go Official Soon?
Tablets may have cooled down a bit, but that hasn’t evidently stopped Motorola from planning to launch a tablet. Yes, you heard it first on My Mobile! Apparently, Motorola is keen on making an Android OS tablet, a source told My Mobile, and it will come with the Moto X branding that has been so far used for its relatively high-end devices. While Motorola has been tight-lipped about what the Moto X tablet brings to the table, even going so far as to say more won’t revealed before the second-half of this year. Rumor has it that the Moto X tablet would come with a Snapdragon 810 processor, making it a premium tablet in its class. Word on the street also suggests that it will have a wooden back; and the tablet will be water resistant in nature. Fun times ahead, if you go by our secret gossip mongers.
Panasonic Ready To Reveal Android Camera?
It seems Panasonic is busy at the moment. The tech giant is not bidding to make the next-generation Nexus device any time soon, but our close sources have revealed that Panasonic might introduce an Android-powered camera in the market. This isn’t a new idea, though. In fact, Samsung was one of the few companies to launch a camera powered by Google’s Android OS - the Galaxy Camera, remember? Now the question is: what magic could Panasonic’s smart camera bring to the cable? It’s not clear if or when it will make an official appearance. As for its price, we are still clueless. What we do know is that we love the idea of a camera running on Android.
Snapdeal branded smartphones in the pipeline?
Snapdeal may have plans to bring its own branded smartphones on the market. There’s still no concrete information available about what exactly Snapdeal aims to achieve by launching smartphones under its own brand name. Over the past few months, Snapdeal has reportedly faced difficulties securing exclusive tie-ups with leading manufacturers to sell their smartphones on its marketplace. We suspect this could perhaps the reason why Snapdeal is looking to launch smartphones under its own name. The leading e-commerce player is looking for a right partner at the moment who will be given a responsibility to manufacture smartphones. A few years back, Flipkart too seemed to be interested in bringing a range of smartphones and tablets under its own brand name but that initiative never really took off.
