The 50b priced at around USD$220 will be using MediaTeks MT6582 chipset, which is a quad-core processor running at 1.3Ghz per core. Strangely, and maybe by necessity being a budget phone, both variants will have only 1GB of RAM. The performance boost of added RAM say maybe 2GB of it in an octa-core phone is substantial, and we were wondering if Archos could have squeezed the cost enough to at least put 2GB of RAM in the octa-core 50c Oxygen. Also, both variants will have the same 2,000maAh batteries. Again we wonder if a little more battery power could have been given to the octa-core variant, which is sure to need more juice turning 8 cores. On the upside though, both variants are sure to be able to handle HD multimedia with ease. Archos is touting even the 50b Oxygen to be able to handle full HD 1080p recording with its 8MP rear camera.

HP says 'The Machine' will supercharge Android phones to 100TB | PCWorld
Draw a quick V on the screen and thecamera LED will turn on like a touch. You can also draw a circle to activate the camera, or a two fingered swipe to play or pauseyour music. You can also double tap the screen instead of pressing the power button to wake up the device. Given the nature of the power button (it is very small and almost flush to the edge of the device), this is a welcome addition to the UI ofthisChinese-built smartphone. Neither will youpick up the handset and wonder where everything is in the software. CyanogenMod is about customisation and choice, but one of the choices that the CyanogenMod community has started with is that Android is pretty good on its own, and Googles launcher and interface is a really good starting point. Anyone with existing Android experience (especially on the Nexus devices) is going to feel comfortable with this handset.

OnePlus One Review: The CyanogenMod Powered Smartphone That Outclasses The Android Competition - Forbes
HPs Martin Fink shows a mock-up of a memristor module at an HP conference in Las Vegas. Today, all our devicesfrom phone to supercomputerconstantly shuttle information between three layers of memory: whats needed this instant (SRAM), what will be needed very soon (DRAM) and what may be needed later (storage), HP said on its website. Memristors will be fast, dense and cheap enough to play both the soon and later roles at once, and thereby speed up throughput by eliminating most of the to and fro, it said. How dense?
