LG created a commercial for the expanded panoramic and camera capabilities of its Optimus G Pro smartphone. The commercial looks a lot like Apple’s commercial “Cheese”, but after 30 seconds their VR Panorama obviously out-innovates Apple in how beautiful it stitches the photos together to produce a nearly 360-degree image. Maybe it is time for Apple to come up with some expanded panorama features in iOS 7. » LG Shows Apple How Panorama Should Be Done

On Google’s Android Event, that takes place on October 29 in New York (same day as the Microsoft event), a 32GB version of the seven-inch Nexus 7 tablet will be announced and the long-expected cellular version of the device. But The Next Web reports that Google has also been working with Samsung to launch a 10-inch tablet. This 10-inch tablet “Codename Manta” runs Google’s new Android 4.2 and will offer a 2560×1600 pixel (16:10) resolution, which we believe will offer around 300 pixels per inch (PPI) compared to the new iPad’s 264 PPI. » October 29 Google Event: New 7-Inch Nexus and 10-Inch Nexus To Compete With The iPad

Apple set a company record by selling over five million units of the iPhone 5 during the device’s launch weekend and run out of iPhone 5 pre-orders in just about an hour. Because of this the shipping estimates for new orders are up to 3-4 weeks. Bloomberg reports that Apple’s tight supplies are a result of the new in-cell technology being used for the iPhone 5’s display.

Apple used the technology in the first major iPhone overhaul since 2010 to make the device more svelte, an attribute that helped lure a record 5 million buyers in three days. Yet producing in-cell screens is also more painstaking than earlier screen types, contributing to bottlenecks.

Macrumors explains “The technology integrates the touch sensors directly into the display rather than adding them as a separate layer, allowing for thinner displays.” » In-Cell Display Technology, Reason For Tight iPhone 5 Supplies

Apple Germany Removed iPhone
Businessweek reported that Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. won a second German patent ruling against Apple Inc. over its iCloud service allowing the company to block sales of devices with access to it.

The Mannheim Regional Court found Apple infringed a patent used to synchronize e-mail accounts. The ruling also allows Motorola Mobility to ask Apple for information about past sales and holds Apple liable for damages, Presiding Judge Andreas Voss said in delivering the ruling. “The court has come to the conclusion that the wording of the patent does cover functioning that were at issue here,” said Voss. Apple “was not able to convince the court that it is not infringing.”
