But in fact, as soon as you click a tiny switch on the rear panel of the device, it will switch to safe mode, noting the range of user green and white light. In this mode, all but the most important sensors disabled. Calls and text messages are encrypted, read-only trusted devices bearing Solarin application. I mean, yes – your friend will have to install on your smartphone app companion, if he wants to not only write to you, but just call in this mode

All the information is encrypted using 256-bit AES-encryption. developed security firms Zimperium and Koolspan . The smartphone even has a safe concierge service that monitors the status of your phone and alerts about incoming attacks. Telephone knows when it try to attack, and certainly never allow to send someone to spam.

When you use your phone as usual, this is a very average Android-smartphone with the Snapdragon processor 810 (not even a Snapdragon 820) and 4 GB of RAM (not even 6 GB). In addition, you get 120 GB of internal memory (with no memory card slot) and 23.8 megapixel camera on by Sony. It should be noted, however, that the Japanese manufacturer has deliberately made a four-LED flash for the camera.

A closer look at the Android-phone

Taking in hand a 5.5-inch device, you will notice that it feels just hefty. And the phone itself is unusually tight, even heavy. Such cracks will not go on the first drop.

It may seem that the titanium case back is covered with natural leather for comfort. But it is not the skin. This “technical leather” – carbon fiber, designed under the skin. Even though experts are unlikely to notice a difference.

Solarin exudes a very masculine charm, offering itself to all kinds of business and politics. 5.5-inch LCD display QHD IPS has fantastic viewing angles and amazing color saturation. Of course, the Snapdragon processor 810 is not new, but this compromise was deliberate. Released even last summer chipset has been selected to ensure that the company had a whole year to make sure it is safe. smartphone manufacturers also declined to 4K display to a lower resolution to reduce the load on the battery capacity of 4040 mAh.

The company promises that the device will work with any LTE-networks around the world, what can not boast of any other device on the market. Regardless of whether you are in the network or not, you can change the SIM-card in an instant thanks to hot swapping. Self slot Micro-SIM-card is located on the upper right side. Communication also proposes to use gigabit Wi-Fi and MIMO packets to handle multiple connections simultaneously. BlackBerry trying to offer a similar promise, but was not able to implement it

Now that you have some idea about this device, you have to ask. Are you the device at all necessary? Android-smartphone, of course, attracts attention with high-level encryption and security, but the highest levels of security available only in protected mode. And in this protected mode, you can use only some of the features – to make calls and write texts. And not the fact that this text is not to steal “one” side. So for complete protection should be at least two smartphone Solarin.

The founder of a startup Moshe Hogek said that services such as the NSA are not interested in business people. Most of the company products are offered for protection against hackers. So you can only ask yourself, how likely is that the exact details of the deal will be set forth in a voice call to the criminals can then use the information to play the stock market? And is it enough to lead people away from the comfort of their Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6s?

The answer is up to you. But Solarin smartphone with a fabulous price tag will simply do its job to protect information

The publication Business Insider writes that leadership WhatsApp looks “a little surprising” because Messenger has many more features – there you can play games and chat have become available bots recently.

This is probably due to the fact that Facebook users are forced to download Messenger separately, writes Business Insider. In addition, the popularity of WhatsApp can mean that users will still want to use instant messengers only to communicate, the newspaper notes.

Viber Messenger took the third place, it has become a leader in 15 countries. Service is the most popular among the residents of Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova.

NVIDIA has certified the new version of Android-tablet brand – Overclockers.ru

Recently, we quite clearly heard from the lips of the head and founder of NVIDIA words the lack of interest in the smartphone segment, which the company not only achieved visible success, but was forced to write off the money spent on the purchase of mobile developer Icera modem. In the segment of the tablet from NVIDIA still it is not very smooth, especially given the revocable campaign due to a defect battery.

However, we have noted that SHIELD Tablet exposed not only “interim modernization” and markdown, but also preparing to adopt a more modern 20-nm processor Tegra X1. This system with a high degree of integration combines four processing cores with the architecture of ARM Cortex-A57 and Cortex-A53, respectively, as well as Maxwell graphic generation solution with 256 CUDA cores. Experienced before the tablet prototype had a traditional 8-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, an increased amount of up to 3 GB of RAM and a built-in SSD volume of 32 GB. The device had to work under the control of Google Android 6.0.

Website Liliputing in the past month, I found that in the database FCC certification authority database lit NVIDIA’s new eight-inch tablet with a symbol P2290W. This allows references, mainly to assess the dimensions of news: 120 x 215 x 7.6 mm, and its weight – 349 g Thus, it can be argued that the new NVIDIA tablet will be thinner and lighter than its predecessor. He also rely port micro-USB 2.0, adapters Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. When will the new product on the market, we can only guess, but the fact of the tablet certification by US authorities suggests the proximity of the moment.

Next, open the main menu, where there is no advertising, but there is a place under the banner, which literally reads as follows: “Advertising allows us to develop the application!”.

Well, now let’s try the whole thing in action.


Let’s start with the fact that the program uses, and the VPN, and proxy that redirect traffic by changing the IP-address. However, a proxy server is completely based on browser technology.

According to the plan of developers, simple applications, such as games, you can start with a low Trust Score, while bank programs require a high level of protection.

The presence of a full-fledged Story of the large number of applications will definitely make the platform more appealing to the end user, and the only question is, who he is.

Is the company allowed its employees to play at work?

it is unlikely, but at the same time, businesses will be able to centrally deploy the necessary commercial software on all devices. Alternative option – when the staff will use the Chromebook as a primary device and at home; then they may play and use paid services

Children privyazhut school payment methods to pay for applications

.? probably not, but schools and institutions will be able to centrally install the software for all students, and benefit from this segment of the children’s and educational applications.

Here, as always with the new platform. In theory, a new market and joy. In practice, however – it is necessary to wait until the audience will. At the moment, I do not clear the reasons for which will be massively bought up Chromebook’i. On the other hand, adaptation is likely to improve developer relationship with Google, which will help get unscheduled ficher on the main market

immediately – no impact. Declared support android apps on Chrome OS level affect only new devices on this platform, the delivery of which scheduled this year. The existing park Chromebook is also small compared to the size of the market Google Play

For developers of applications (and games) Chromebook -. Not more than an additional segment of the tablets of the middle class. Google Play, and so continues to grow due to the activation of new devices on Android. If Chrome OS support will increase the number of potential users of another 5-10 million by the end of the year, we are with you it is not even note

Ask yourself -. How much money you earn on the settings on the BlueStacks? I would suggest to focus on the same order of numbers.

If you look at the cosmic growth BlueStacks platform it can be concluded that the idea of ​​playing mobile games running on the desktop. I do not think it will be worse run on Chrome OS.

However, the Google Play market devices and so huge, and the addition of Chromebook will not affect somehow significantly developers income.

What are the problems poses promised Android-compatible apps with Chrome-applications for developers?

According to the announcement, Google Play and Android support based applications will be integrated at the operating system level, not the browser. Accordingly, it is not an emulation, and support for native applications via the platform Apps Runtime for Chrome. They are about 2 billion in Google Play. They are of varying quality, written under a variety of form factors and with different mechanics.

Obviously, the advantage will go to those developers who have experience with both touchscreen and conventional screen, mouse and keyboard. We at Game Insight has repeatedly passed this way, adapting our games for a variety of platforms, including desktops

The adaptation of the interface will be the most expensive task. As far as I understood from the announcement, some technical difficulties did not promise to Google.

The screen resolution, processing power, memory capacity is applied – are not such serious restrictions on the developer as a growing segment of low-cost devices on Android. I would place the developers are not strained. Google will not cut its’ goose that lays the golden eggs “, and punish applications that do not support thin client PC.

 & # x410; & # x41E;

no problems I do not see, in most cases, 1-5 days will be enough work of a programmer, so that the application was incompatible.

Should we expect a similar step by Apple?

 & # x410; & # x418;

Andrew Ivashentsov in Game Insight

Director of Innovation To date, Chrome OS and OS X they are in different weight classes and the majority of OS X users already have an iPhone or iPad, where they run all the applications they need. Apple has an extremely high standard of quality and usability, and we would not have relied on the fact that they are allowed to run mobile or tablet touch-first apps on non-touch computers

Another thing -. The prospects and potential of the unification of development between iOS and OS X, which will allow developers to more convenient to universal applications for both platforms.

We can say that with the advent of Google Play on Chrome OS, a laptop for $ 150 dollars will play a new meaning for the ordinary consumer is segments Education and Enterprise, and the choice of the first computer in an affordable (low-end) price range will be between Windows 10 and Chrome OS.

Microsoft switched to a unified platform. Google promises to merge Chrome OS and Android. On the one hand, a trend can be traced, on the other hand, I do not see the economic preconditions for merging Mac OS and iOS. They even separated from tvOS of iOS, though, it would seem, at least differences.

 & # x412; & # x41C;

Valentin Merzlikin Evangelist publishing destinations Creative Mobile

Not sure what step will be the same. Talk about merging Mac and iOS platforms are a long time – all updates Mac OS X look like steps in this direction. But for Apple both platforms make good money, and the need to repeat some decisions Microsoft or Google in this area do not have.

 & # x410; & # x41E;

Arthur Ostapenko, founder and CEO of Avallon Alliance

Very much doubt.
