HTC Nexus

 

At various times this year, we told you about a tablet that is rumored to be under production by HTC. Various code names have been bandied about for this tablet, including HTC Flounder, and Volantis. But the most important name that this slate could be called, is the Nexus 9. What is interesting, is that the tablet has received its Wi-Fi certification, and according to the certificate, the operating system on the slab will be Android L.

 

In addition, the certificate shows that the filing was made in the "Tablet (Wi-Fi and other)" section as opposed to the Wi-Fi Only section. That would seem to indicate that HTC will be offering both a Wi-Fi only model, and a model with LTE connectivity.

 

The HTC tablet rumored to be the Nexus 9, is believed to have an 8.9 inch screen with resolution of 2048 x 1440. The pixel density at that combination works out to be 281ppi. A 64-bit Tegra K1 CPU is under the hood, with 2GB of RAM inside. Buyers will have the option of purchasing the model with either 16GB or 32GB of native storage, with pricing at $399 and $499, respectively. This would explain the pair of SKU numbers listed on the certificate.

Samsung has recently released an application on the Play Store named Wi-Fi Transfer. As far as functionality is concerned, the name itself is quite self-explanatory as it allows users to transfer various files via Wi-Fi without utilizing an active internet connection. One of the two devices is used to setup a Wi-Fi tethering connection, while the other one connects to the first device through the temporary Wi-Fi network.


The technology itself can be used to transfer files between any two smartphones running on Android. However, since Wi-Fi Transfer is an app by Samsung, the only handsets that are able to use the application right now are the ones made by Samsung.


The Play Store already has a good number of apps that allow the same facilities and most of them are compatible with the majority of Android devices. We are not sure what the exact purpose of this application was, but Samsung certainly seems to think that it was needed. The list of compatible smartphones even in the roster of Samsung is unfortunately on the lower side and several bugs have been reported. As it is a newly released application, we are sure that things will get better with each update.

Samsung 802.11ad

 

You may have Smartphone with Wi-Fi 802.11ac in your hands now, and it was just released. However, Samsung is already looking ahead to improve this Technology even further. The company has announced that it has managed to complete the development of the Wi-Fi 802.11ad standard and is ready to commercialize it.

 

The new 802.11ad standard operates at a 60GHz frequency and enables high transmission speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, which is 575MB/s. That's an increase of 5x times compared to the 802.11ac standard, which is capable of 866Mbps, or 108MB/s.

 

802.11ad

 

Samsung says that the 802.11ad standard maintains maximum speed by eliminating the co-channel interface and thus removing the gap between theoretical and actual speeds. The 60GHz frequency is more than 10x times faster than that of 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi technologies.

Wi-Fi Alliance has long been the site where upcoming phones and tablets have been leaked at during the certification process and this time, it was time for the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4 to make an appearance on the site for its Wi-Fi certification.


Granted that this isn't much of a leak since we already knew that the Tab S4 is coming, but its appearance on the site suggests that the tablet might not be as far away from release as was rumored previously. The tablet seen on the site is indeed the Tab S4 with model number SM-T835 and possibly a 10.5-inch QHD display at 16:10 ratio. Unfortunately, just like all previous tablets by Samsung, it will be powered by an outdated flagship chip, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. There will also be 4 GB of RAM onboard, backed by 64GB internal storage and a possible expansion slot for a micro-SD card. SamMobile suggests that the Galaxy Tab S4 could be making an appearance at the IFA in August - September 2018.

Google has launched its first router ever, but you will have to wait till December to get your hands on one. Although the pre-orders will start from next month, it won't be until December that the company will start shipping the Wi-Fi router to their customers. A single unit will set you back by $129 but if you can find two other interested friends, you can have a pack of three for only $299. Provided that you have a big enough house, you can also use multiple of these as the modular devices may also be used to widen the signal area of your primary router's connection.


Google Wi-Fi will allow the admin to control network usage by enabling him/her to restrict data consumption on any of the connected devices. The Network Assist feature will continue to improve the performance of your network, in addition to decongesting it. It supports mesh networking as well, in case you already have an OnHub router.


Check the hardware specifications below.

2 Gigabit Ethernet ports
512MB of DDR3L memory
710 MHz quad-core processor
4GB of eMMC flash


Google Smart OnHub 2

 

Moving from media devices, tablets and Smartphones. Google decided to release its first SmartRouter. It's called OnHub and it's built in partnership with TP-Link. As of the design, it looks amazing, nothing like your average router.

 

Google OnHub is an AC1900 router, boasting a total of 13 built-in antennas: 6 for the 2.4 GHz band, 6 for 5 GHz, and another one that's used for continuously monitoring your environment for wireless congestions. In conjunction with this antenna's scans, the software automatically switches wireless channels when necessary.

 

OnHub

 

Aside from the 802.11ac support, you get legacy a/b/g/n too, but this router also has Bluetooth, and support for Weave and 802.15.4, so it's as future-proof as possible. On the hardware side, we're looking at a Qualcomm / Atheros chipset solution, with an IPQ8064 1.4 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MB of NOR flash, 4GB of eMMC flash, and a QCA8337 Gigabit Ethernet switch.

 

The OnHub is available to order today from the Google Store as well as many other retailers. It costs $199.99 and is offered in blue and black. According to Amazon, it will be released on August 31st. Google itself only says it will be shipping "in the upcoming weeks".

Next time you are using Wi-Fi on your cellphone, or connected to a 4G LTE signal, keep in mind that the person you need to thank for these innovations is an actress who received a patent in 1942 for "spread spectrum technology" that is currently used in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G LTE technology. The actress was born in Austria as Hedwig Kiesler and you might know her as Hedy Lamarr.

 

Besides her talents as an actress, Lamarr happened to be born with an incredible mind. After marrying one of the richest men in Austria, Friedrich Mandl, she would end up at her husband's side as he would have dinner with men like Hitler and Mussolini. Mandl was the largest arms manufacturer in Austria and the topic at the dinner table would sometimes revolve around radio-controlled missiles and torpedoes.

 

While pretending to be bored at these dinners, Lamarr actually soaked up the information. After running off to America, she became one of the country's biggest movie stars toiling for MGM during the 1940's. But at the same time, she developed a wireless communication system that couldn't be jammed. Her goal was to help the Allies defeat the Nazis. Back then, most wireless systems used one frequency which made it easy to block. The actress came up with a way for the message to be sent over another frequency if the original one was jammed. "Frequency hopping" was the term that was used to describe the technology.

Having an Internet access while flying is important to stay online while flying, either for work or just entertainment. Many major airlines now offer internet access to their passengers through an on-board Wi-Fi connection. Data is delivered via satellites or from ground-based cellular antennas beaming 3G/4G airwaves at the sky. However, its very expensive, starting from $30 per flight.

 

To make things easy, Here is a list of Airlines with free Wi-Fi internet access on their flights:

 

• Norwegian Airlines: has high-speed broadband on flights within Europe. The service is available on the company's Boeing 737-800 aircrafts.
• JetBlue: has all of its Airbus 321s and most of its A320 planes equipped with Wi-Fi gear. There's a catch, however. The free access option imposes restrictions on your connection. To go online at full speed, you'll have to buy a pass.
• Hongkong Airlines: has free Wi-Fi on its Airbus A330-200 aircraft operating from London to Hong Kong. The connection speed, however, is limited for those using a free pass.
• Air China: free Wi-Fi service comes with a catch. Passengers cannot connect to it from their smartphones as these are not allowed to be on during flights. Tablets and laptops, on the other hand, are A-OK.
• Nok Air: provides free Wi-Fi internet access on domestic flights throughout Thailand. The service is only available on two aircrafts, however.
