Children aren’t the only ones getting special attention from the industry these days. Even those who are at the prime of their life and beyond need devices that are tailor fitted to address not only their needs, but also their habits and capacities. Enter Jitterbug Touch 2, the next iteration of the easy to use smartphone made by GreatCall, who specializes in products for aging consumers.

JitterbugTouch2-oblique

 

Jitterbug Touch 2 is designed for older people who are interested in transitioning to a smartphone. As such, the device offers no frills features and hardware. It has a full 4″ color touch screen, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and a battery that can last up to 13 days on standby. Weighing at just 0.3 pounds, the phone is definitely built for less powerful hands. But hardware is only part of the story, and a lesser one at that.

Satellite imagery and automated systems can only do so much in capturing relevant mapping data, such as open roads, walkways, and transportation lines. That is why Google launched its Ground Truth project to improve the reliability of Google Maps through a mixture of algorithms and good old human elbow grease.

map-hongkong-victoria-park

 

Unveiled last May, the Ground Truth initiative adds a factor of human labor in ensuring the accuracy of Google Maps data. It allows users to report a factual issue that they find on a local map. When there is a conflict between data that has been acquired by Google through various automated sources and data reported by anonymous users, Google will employ a specially trained Ground Truth operator to verify it by analyzing data gathered from Street View.

LG will be unveiling the G2 smartphone a bit later today and given the frequency of leaks, we suppose these last minute leaks shouldn’t come with much surprise. Yesterday brought a look at the display and digitizer assembly for the handset and today we are seeing a side-by-side compare with the Galaxy S 4.

As we have seen in the past, this is basically offering another look at the LG G2. Of course, those official images should be here within a few hours time. It would be easy to point out some

Vodafone

Twelve more cities by the end of the year; Data in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB allowances

Vodafone UK will be launching its 4G LTE service on Aug. 29, the same day rival operator O2 will be going live with its 4G offering. At launch, Vodafone 4G will only be available in London — so unless you live in the British capital, there's not much reason to care at this stage. (By contrast, O2 says it'll launch in London, Leeds and Bradford.) Vodafone is promising LTE in a further twelve cities by the end of the year, however.

4G plans will be available from Aug. 12, Vodafone says, ahead of the switch-on on the 29th. Vodafone "Red 4G" deals will provide double the data of its existing Vodafone Red packages — which means data will come in 2, 4 and 8-gigabyte bundles.

HTC One Mini

Can HTC squeeze the essence of its best phone yet into a smaller, more affordable package?

 

We’ve made no secret of the fact that the HTC One is our favorite phone of the year so far. Back in March HTC knocked it out of the park with exceptional build quality, a stunning display and fast, well-designed software. And though not entirely perfect — we took issue with image quality from the camera, for instance — it’s been hard to find another device that’s as consistently fast, beautiful and enjoyable to use.

In previous years, HTC’s sold different devices with substantially different designs and features for the mid-range and high-end. However 2013 sees the Taiwanese manufacturer adopting a more consistent approach. As such, this year’s leading mid-range phone is the HTC One Mini, a device which aims to distil the essence of the HTC One into a smaller form factor with a lower price tag.

Nokia Lumia 1020 On Sale By AT&T Now

 

Fancy picking up the Nokia Lumia 1020 from the folks over at AT&T? If you have answered in the affirmative, you would be pleased to hear that said smartphone is already available for an online purchase via AT&T’s website. Having said that, the pre-order of the Lumia 1020 sold out pretty quickly, although we do not know whether that is attributed to super high sales figures, or is it because of limited stock.

IDC has published its latest quarterly smartphone shipment numbers, which shows an overall increase in global device shipments of 6-percent over the same quarter last year. On an interesting note, part of this growth was attributed to atypical shipment numbers for handset makers outside of the Top 5, including Huawei and Alcatel.

Overall global smartphone shipments for the second quarter of this year came in at 432.1 million phones, which is a notable increase over Q2 2012′s 407.7 million. The non-top 5 smartphone makers, meanwhile, saw sales i

Nexus 7, Nexus 4, Nexus 10 And Galaxy Nexus Get Android 4.3

If you have recently picked up a Nexus 4, Nexus 10 or Galaxy Nexus, then you would be pleased to hear that Google did announce at this morning’s breakfast event that Android 4.3, still flying under the Jelly Bean flag, will be making its way to the above mentioned devices. Oh yeah, there is also the slight deviation from the normal path as the second generation Nexus 7 tablet, too, would be on the receiving end of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean right out of the box.

EE speed test

Download speeds of 40Mbps or more enabled by new 2x20MHz LTE network

As promised, network operator EE has launched "double speed" 4G LTE in some twelve British cities today. The new, faster speeds are enabled by allocating more of EE's spectrum to its LTE network — it's now using 2x20MHz of 1800MHz spectrum instead of 2x10MHz. This brings theoretical transfer rates of up to 150Mbps, with real world speeds averaging around 30-40Mbps. In practice we've seen throughput regularly hit 40-50Mbps in London and Manchester, with download speeds hitting highs of 78-79Mbps in some areas.

We know Motorola is geared up to launch several handsets in the relatively near future, among them being “the first smartphone you can design yourself,” the Moto X. Also anticipated is a DROID Ultra and some other handsets under the Ultra line. It is possible that two Motorola handsets that have surfaced at the FCC are part of that series.

Unfortunately, the FCC filings don’t provide enough information to tell what the XT1030 and XT1080 are, but does show some of the specs, which include a plethora of various wireless technologies
