Google will announce the Android 4.5 and Nexus 8 tablet in July

Google won't be using its annual I/O conference in June to announce the next, Android 4.5 version, claim insiders. The I/O event will be utilized to demonstrate a bunch of new Google services, while the Android-related announcements will be left for July.

The source, allegedly from Google's vast offices in Dublin, also tipped that his managers are talking a Nexus 8 tablet release, that will be used as a poster child for Android 4.5. Google is allegedly throwing in the towel on 7-inchers, due to the cutthroat competition that formed in that segment, and will take it up a notch, to the 8-inch realm. There's only a handful of Android slates in that market niche for now, like the Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, and LG’s G Pad 8.3, so the move might be warranted.

This rumor contradicts the previous speculation that Google will be ready with the first batch of two million Nexus 8 tablet units, built by Asus, by the end of April. Nothing is mentioned about the eventual specs of the rumored tablet, though we've heard before that the Nexus 8 might be using Intel's new mobile processors. There is also no word yet on its pricing scheme, or what will be the new features in the speculated Android 4.5 update, but we've got plenty of time for more leaks to happen between now and the summer.

Mobile Phone Usage Has No Adverse Health Effects

An 11-year long UK study, encompassing 31 research projects worth $22.4 million (INR 138 Crores), produced a report which concludes that cell phone usage has no reported health effects, busting decades-old myths about wireless signals making us sick. The 60-page long report describes it has found “no evidence” that exposure to mobile network emissions during pregnancy increases the risk of developing cancer in early childhood, or that use of mobile phones can result in risk of leukemia.

We couldn't find anything about our favorite myth of all, which said that cell phones sitting in our pockets basically microwaved our private parts. However, we're now led to believe that they are safe from invisible harm as well.

Still, the report doesn't explicitly state that mobile users are entirely safe. The report ends by recommending further studying of possible impacts of mobile phone usage on kids, as well as potential adverse reflections on sleep and brain function. Thus, the research will continue with another long-term study, investigating whether there are any delayed adverse effects of mobile phone usage, which could become apparent only after years.

For the scientifically-inclined, the full report is available in the links below.

How to Obtain GPS Coordinates On Your Phone?

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on the Earth to be specified by a set of numbers or letters. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents vertical position, and two or three of the numbers represent horizontal position.

A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. These values can be obtained by using Global Positioning System (GPS) on your phone.

One Touch Location is an android/iOS application which lets you to obtain GPS coordinates and address of your location. The accuracy of the values depends on the quality of the GPS receiver on your phone. Sources of error include signal arrival time measurements, numerical calculations, atmospheric effects, ephemeris, and clock data, multipath signals, and natural and artificial interference.

Using One Touch Location you can also share your location in the form of a Google Maps link, letting others track you over time. Plus, there's a built-in feature that lets you discover places of interest nearby.

Nokia X Running Android 4.1 Spotted

Nokia X (Normandy), has appeared on the CamSpeed database, the benchmark test of Sofica, with a pretty good score, indicating a fixed focus camera on the back, where the focusing time is essentially zero.

The forked Android-powered handset is said to sport a 5 MP snapper, though the resolution used for the CamSpeed test is 3 MP. It also should have 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory expanded by a microSD card slot, as well as a 1500 mAh battery. It will be available in a dual-SIM version, codenamed RM-980, which is the one appearing on CamSpeed, and will arrive in six jolly colors, aimed at teens and emerging markets.

Nokia is allegedly reshuffling its MWC event plans after it became clear that Samsung decide to pull the Galaxy S5 unveiling forward to the expo timeframe, so it's unclear if and when Normandy will be unleashed. It is expected to be announced as part of the Asha family, presenting an interesting twist of fate for Nokia's budget portfolio, as it will be its first commercial handset with Android on it, albeit evidently a highly modified one.
