UK retailer Carphone Warehouse have posted a page detailing all the still-to-be-announced features of the Google Nexus 4, the next handset in the Nexus line. Unfortunately for Google, the page isn’t just a leaked image, it reveals all the upcoming features which were expected to be announced at Google’s Android event next week.
Google have just sent out invites to the high profile technology reporters, inviting them to an Android event on October 29th in New York City. The invitation itself is designed around the interface of Google Now, the assistant which was introduced in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It’s thought that the upcoming event could be used as a way to showcase version 4.2, which we reported on earlier this week. It’s likely that Google will also use this event to announce the next Nexus phone, with the possibility of there being multiple Nexus handsets revealed.
Today eBay has announced a completely new design overhaul to create the ‘Future of eCommerce’, according to eBay president Devin Wenig. The new design looks to be modeled on the style of Pinterest, whose downward scrolling tiles seem to be the trend with designers at the moment. One of the new features in the design is ‘My Feed’, which displays items it knows you are interested in so that you can browse what you like without having to go through the standard searching process. The new features also implement the logo change we wrote about a few weeks back.
To get a closer look at what to expect in the new design, head over to eBay.com/new for a preview. Shoppers in the US can opt into the new features right now, however international countries will have to wait for further information.
Google have just launched a big update to the images on their maps database, meaning a lot of places have a much higher resolution of image to look at. Some of the new images are also taken at a 45° angle so that you can get a bit closer to the action, however the only city in the UK to have this feature is Newcastle. The new angle of photography has also been given to some other lucky cities across the world, however surprisingly Google have left out London.
For me, Myspace was the first proper social network that I signed up for. I used it for about a year, however pretty soon Facebook came along and pulled me and millions of others away. Myspace is now losing many visitors, meaning that they have to do something if they want to stay in the competition, and they feel this can be done in the form of a new design.
The new design of Myspace teased in the video below is a complete overhaul of how the entire website works. It looks like a cross between a few social networks which have proven to be successful with their designs, most noticeably the tiled interface of Pinterest.
Do you think a design change is what Myspace needs to become as successful as it once was? The new style certainly looks good, however I think the chances of them regaining that same popularity is extremely unlikely.
Earlier in the week, HTC announced a number of new smartphones running on the Windows Phone 8 operating system, instead of their usual Android choice. Nokia weren’t very happy about this, but we sure were. HTC always make brilliantly designed phones, which fits in well with the innovative style of Windows Phone. The phone you see above, the ‘8X‘, is the main ‘flagship’ phone announced this week by HTC, but there were some other good ones to, each with their own unique features to stand out against the crowd. Watch the announcement video below!
