Micromax Canvas 5 will come with Android 4.4 KitKat and not Android 4.2 as earlier stated. It also suggests that that at the time of the launch, Micromax will be offering a data bundle deal with Tata Docomo.
Micromax Canvas 5 will pack in a Mediatek Octa Core chipset much like the Intex Aqua Octa. Micromax Canvas 5 might be the slimmest Micromax device till date and will offer a 1080p display.
The device adopts the custom UI that I saw on other Micromax phones, that involves a widget with the typical shortcuts: phone, email, text and app list. It also includes the battery percentage and weather shortcut. The design feels very much like a rougher Nexus 4, if I can call it that way. Also, the render feels a bit unfinished around the edges, particularly in the upper area.
The case should be plastic to keep it light and affordable and the specs here can only be a matter of speculation. Let’s say MediaTek quad core or maybe even 8 core CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 12 MP camera, 16 GB of storage and LTE.

Nokia X and X+ have just been announced by the Finnish handset maker at their Mobile World Congress 2014 press conference. The devices are the first Nokia handsets to run Android, although it is a forked version of the operating system. Nokia X and X+ is aimed at emerging markets and is partly powered by Nokia and Microsoft services. Think of these as an extension of Asha and not so much a threat to Window Phone. The Nokia X and X+ mobilephones are low-cost Android phones, running a forked version of the open source operating system. You won’t be getting apps from the Google Play store, but instead from Nokia’s own “Nokia Store” and other locations (more on that below). The phone will be powered by a suite of Microsoft and HERE apps. These aren’t flagship devices, but meant to move a lot of numbers and appeal to emerging markets. Full specification:-

Indeed, this is a very progressive device. The 16 GB model, the Nexus 5 (made by LG) really does seem unbeatable. A lot of that is attributable to the phone’s formidable specs, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 at 2.3 GHz with Adreno 330 graphics (450 MHz) and 2 GB of LPDDR3-1600. As far as performance goes, that’s a very modern platform on which to build a phone, and we’ve already seen it used in much more expensive devices like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 and LG’s G2 (on which the Nexus 5 is mostly based).
The Nexus 5 is the best that Google has to offer right now. It is a lean, mean Android machine, beyond the reach of OEM embellishment and carrier bloatware. It delivers a streamlined experience that’s stylish, refined, and lightning fast, and it does all this at a jaw-droppingly low price.
A 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset and 2GB RAM place this on the cutting edge. The 5-inch 1080p display is no slouch either, and the Nexus 5 sports the very latest platform update in Android 4.4 KitKat, with the elegant Google Experience Launcher on top.

Owners of Nvidia’s Shield console are in for a treat. On April 2, Nvidia will begin rolling out an over-the-air (OTA) update that upgrades the device’s Android platform to Android 4.4.2 KitKat, though that’s not the only feature upgrade. It also adds a bunch of GameStream enhancements, including some beta goodies such as notebook support, Wake on LAN, and remote login support, which will allow users to log into a locked PC remotely from Shield.
Nvidia’s also introduced a few new features to Shield that will be rolling out by early April as a part of the upgrade to Android KitKat 4.4.2. One big change is that now Shield owners will be able to Game Stream from their Kepler GPUs not just from their home networks, but anywhere. The new version will allow gamers to use Wake on LAN and Remote Login to get their portable gaming going. Gamers can also stream from their notebooks as well, though the use case for this will be a bit more unique given that the host machine itself is portable.
KitKat update is a new GamePad Mapper UI that will better allow Shield gamers to play touchscreen games but with physical controls. There’s also new Bluetooth keyboard and mouse support for Shield’s console mode, which opens up the door for some impromptu big screen gaming setups on your couch.
A number of new applications have been launched on the Google Play app store for Android Thousands of applications to choose from on app stores and there are simply just too many. When it comes to narrowing it down, however, you can check out the latest applications to be released and give them a shot. Below you will find a list of some of the newest apps in different categories. 1. Schoolbus Driving 3D Simulator: The whole point of this game is to drive a school bus. This sounds so simple and easy – maybe even boring — but it isn’t and that’s why its targeted at people who do not drive school buses. Feel free to give it a try next time you are looking to pass time on a boring day. At the very least, this game is free.
2. Fleksy Keyboard: Over the years, keyboards have been one of the most frustrating parts of daily smartphone use. From autocorrect to a wide variety of different keyboard sizes, we rarely find much consistency. Even when new operating systems come and go, new keyboards are introduced. As described on the Google Play store, “The power behind Fleksy is its unique technology based on Geometric Intelligence. Imprecise? Sloppy typing? No problem! Fleksy will know what word you meant to type even if you tap on all the wrong letters. The patent pending technology doesn’t just look at the letters you press. It looks at WHERE you tap and analyzes your typing pattern to understand the word you meant to type.” The downside to this app is that it does come with a $3.99 price tag, unfortunately.
3. Quizup: This is not a new app overall, but it was never introduced on Android platforms until now. Although it offers in-app purchases, it is a free app to start with. It is fairly self-explanatory in that it is just a trivia game, but it will help you stimulate your brain while passing time all at once.
Microsoft has officially confirmed that it will bring its Microsoft Outlook Web App for Android users later this year, but has not provided an exact date for its release.

The Outlook Web App would let the users experience all the features of the Microsoft Office 365 including three new features that have been highlighted the most by the firm: ‘Clutter’, ‘Enhanced Document Collaboration’, and ‘Groups’.

Finnish telecommunications giant, Nokia, is all set to release their first android device, Nokia X. The company is set to launch the phone in the Mobile World Congress 2014.
The phone will ship in with the following:
- 4 inch TFT screen with a resolution of 480×854 pixels.
- It houses 1-GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, which is an older but reliable Snapdragon series processor.
- Dual SIM card support, micro SD.
- Android 4.4 KitKat is supposed to be shipped in with the phone, however it will not come with a pre-installed Google Play as the OS is highly customized for the phone.
Design-wise the phone is likely to be much like the Nokia Lumia series of Smartphones. As per the numerous leaks the phone is to be a mid-range budget phone aimed at phasing out the Nokia Asha series.
Features which we would be looking forward to in the Nokia X would be:
- Refocusing camera, a technology which Nokia has on its Lumia series leading to outstanding image quality.
- Water and dust resistibility, for those of us who keep spilling water on our phone, this is a valuable addition to the device.
- Other than that a phone tracker would be really helpful for those of us who keep misplacing our phone.
The Nokia X seems to be pretty much of a loaded phone and comes with many valuable features with this phone the company hopes to extend its customer base by providing them with its first android device.
