DGM T-703

DGM T-703 tablet review - DGM T-703 is a cheap, lightweight Android tablet with 7-inch capacitive touchscreen and a fast 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor.

The cheap Android tablet invasion made many manufacturers rush into this market without any preparation at all. That is one of the reasons why we have so many unsuccessful cheap Android tablet on the market today. There are plenty of examples where the tablets mentioned are usable for a month or so.

The DGM T-703 is one of the tablets that we cannot say for sure it is more reliable than the rest in this price range but you definitely cannot expect a lot from a device that costs less than £70.

The sponsors of the summer Olympic Games London 2012

The sponsors of the summer Olympic Games London 2012 

Some thoughts on the financing of the biggest sport event on the planet


The sponsors of the Olympic games London 2012 - the open Olympic games ceremony is scheduled for this evening and there will be plenty of attention on this event.
Olympic Games London 2012
 Olympic Games London 2012 
The Olympic games is by far the biggest sport event on the planet and for this reason it is the most expensive as well. Nothing else doesn't come even close to the budget for the Olympics.

This year the event will take place in London, one of the most popular cities in the world. Some people would argue if it is a good idea to make event this big in such heavily urbanized area where traffic and accommodation can often cause huge problems. But the choice has been made a long time ago and all the facilities and equipment is ready for the Summer Olympics in 2012.
Acer will provide most of the equipment for the Olympics in London and they will sponsor the event big time.
As I already mentioned such an event costs a lot of money and because of the enormous media attention many manufacturers will compete for the best advertising spaces at the Olympics.
My guess is that tech companies like Samsung, Panasonic, HP  will be the biggest advertisers at London 2012 and they will spend the most money. As you've probably noticed Samsung sponsors many sport events around the world. Of course thousands of companies will take part in the advertising campaigns at the Olympics and that is one of the ways for the hosts of the event to gather some funds and cover part of the huge expenses for the Olympic games in London.
And of course some of the biggest sponsors will be the car manufacturers who have the potential to pay the high advertising fees of the event.
I hope the Olympics in London will happen without any serious issues and problems and that the events there will bring many positive feelings for sport enthusiasts around the world.

Few thoughts on the summer Olympics in London - video


Enjoy the summer Olympics London 2012 and don't forget to practice your favorite sports as often as possible.

The 9.7-inch IPS multi-touch capacitive screen offers great picture quality and responsiveness. The viewing angles are also very good, something typical for most IPS displays. The screen has 1024x768 pixels resolution and performs well even in direct sunlight.
Hardware - the hardware performance is provided by the fast 1.5GHz ARM Cortex A9 dual-core processor. Together with the 1GB DDR3 RAM this device becomes one of the best equipped tablets in this class.

Ramos W22Pro tablet back
Ramos W22Pro
The space for storage in the Ramos W22Pro tablet is 16GB and it can easily be expanded with the help of an additional microSD card (up to 32GB).
When talking about Internet and connectivity options in the Ramos W22Pro tablet we should definitely mention the fast 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi connection. Unfortunately 3G is supported only with optional 3G dongle.
HDMI port and a headphone jack are also available in this tablet.
Ramos W22Pro has two cameras on board - one front-facing VGA and a 2.0MP rear camera.
One important thing about the Ramos W22Pro tablet supports 2160P HD video playback and the overall multimedia experience is really great on the large bright IPS display.
There are few sensors built-in the Ramos W22Pro tablet including accelerometer and a G-sensor.
The device is also infrared enabled so you can easily use it as a remote control.
Ramos W22Pro tablet 4000mAh Lithium battery that will last for some 5-6 hours of moderate use.
Ramos W22Pro tablet uses the well known Google Android 4.0 operating system.
The price for the Ramos W22Pro varies around $320 which is OK considering its specs. The only big drawback of the device is its weight - it is a bit on the heavy side. Other than that great display and features, fast processor and a good price.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V sample photo


Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V sample photos - here are some sample photos taken with the very nice 16MP Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX9V. As you probably know this camera was awarded the best camera in this class for 2011 and it is still one of the most popular super zoom compact digital cameras.

These pictures are taken on daylight and some on direct sunlight. The 16x zoom is a very nice feature but I used only from 2x up to 5x for some images. All photos are taken with the intelligent auto mode (only the first one with the green grass was taken with a unfocused background scene mode).
