It’s time to enlighten up you guys with the newest tech news and releases on this early 2012. I’m sure you guys like a thing which is faster, thinner and tougher, so don’t worry, as we got that all covered for you.
Tougher and thinner Gorilla Glass 2
Corning has announced a new Gorilla Glass which brings reduced thickness of 20% while maintaining it tough and more damage-resistant glass cover. Gorilla Glass 2 also brings more improvements like more touch sensitive screen, brighter display, and makes your device sleeker. The Gorilla Glass 2 is likely to be available this year on smartphones, tablets and computers as glass covers, but also it will be delivered to home and office use as well.
Faster data transfer through USB 3.0
Smartphones and tablets in the coming months and years will be integrated by USB 3.0. The new I/O tech has been designed to suit to mobile devices in order to improved data transfer. Maximum data transfer is said to increase up to 800Mbps. In general use its speed is equivalent to 15-minute data rate transfer of USB 2.0 to 1-minute data rate only of USB 3.0. Tech industry sees that USB 3.0 will cater consumers this 2012 and more on next year.
Faster wireless streaming via Wi-Fi ac
The Wi-Fi n or IEEE 802.11n has been the de facto in wireless communication especially for mobile devices like mobile phones and computers for already five (5) years. But now it’s likely to be replaced by 802.11ac as the newest released of IEEE, who manages the development of the WiFi system, this year.
What this WiFi ac brings is more faster wireless data rate. From the current mobile and tablets theoretical max. speed of WiFi n at 100Mbps, it will be boosted by WiFi ac up to 433Mbps making it 4x faster. While on laptops and higher forms of gadgets are expected to be supported by enhanced WiFi ac which max at 1.3Gbps theoretical speed.
Some of the manufacturers have already slated the release of their WiFi ac enabled products (routers etc.) this year so likely we might be seeing phones, tablets and computers with WiFi ac before the year ends.
