BlackBerry Z10 hands on

BlackBerry Q10 features

the blackberry 10 q10  device features a 720 x 720 Super AMOLED 3.1 inch display, its Q10's screen is slightly larger than its touch hybrid predecessor, the Bold 9930, and sports a greater pixel density of 328ppi.
The screen itself is plenty bright and contrasty with incredible viewing angles.
The steel band around the middle and "glass weave" backplate actually gave the device a pleasantly premium feel in our hands. It was solid, well shaped and smooth to the touch without being plasticky. The 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and 2GB of RAM keep the device humming along quite smoothly. It reacted almost instantaneously to input with no hiccups.
The smaller screen size did make touch input seem a little less natural, but the ability to just start typing and search or perform actions (such as sending an email) more than made up for the slightly cramped confines.

the device also features great  blackberry 10 technologies like :

The micromax devices will be loaded with Micromax’s M!Store, M!Buddy, M!SMS, M!Z…


Using a microcontroller as a USB host device instead of as a USB peripheral device can
be very helpful for students in ECE 4760 (Digital Systems Design Using Microcontrollers) to
attach a USB mouse, a USB keyboard or a USB memory stick. Although a full software version of
a USB host has been previously implemented on AVR Mega32 microcontrollers as a final project
for ECE 4760 by students, the fact that it heavily loads the microcontroller forces us to look for

Wing Commander Rakesh Sharma

Wing Commander Rakesh Sharma, AC, Hero of the Soviet Union, (born January 13, 1949) is a former Indian Air Force test pilot who flew aboard Soyuz T-11 as part of the Intercosmos program. Sharma was the first Indian to travel in space.
Sharma joined the Indian Air Force and progressed rapidly through the ranks. Sharma, then a Squadron Leader and pilot with the Indian Air Force embarked on a historic mission in 1984 as part of a joint space program between the Indian Space Research Organisation and the Soviet Intercosmos

National Large Solar Telescope will double up as planet searching tool

Indian scientists will soon join a growing international community of rese­a­­r­chers looking for su­per-earths outside the solar sy­stem, courtesy a new telescope to be set up by Bangalore-based scientists in the Himalayas.

While the Rs 300-crore National Large Solar Telescope (NLST) will study the sun, the facility can also be used at night to look for planets outside the solar system. The NLST is expected to be ready by 2017.

“The telescope will also be used for other activities like searching for extra solar planets,” S S Hasan, former director of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics in Bangalore, which is making the telescope, said at the centenary session of the Indian Science Congress here. 

Ever since the discovery of the first exo-planet way back in 1995, close to 800 exo-planets have been identified by scientists, primarily due to the Kepler space mission and its predecessors.

The NLST will mainly study the sun, to know more about its magnetic field, sun spots a…

India's Space mission to Mars may be launched in October; payloads by March

India's space mission to Mars, expected to be launched in October, will look for signature of life and the reasons for loss of atmosphere on the red planet, a top scientist said here.

Work on the Mars Orbiter Mission, announced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in his Independence Day address last year, is going on full steam and equipment of the five experiments planned during the mission are expected to be delivered to ISRO in March. "We should get the five payloads by March and we plan to start integrating them in the satellite from April," Jitendra Nath Goswami, director of the Physical Research Laboratory and closely involved with the Mars mission, said.

ISRO's trusted warhorse rocket PSLV-XL is expected to launch the mission some time in October from the spaceport Sriharikota which will first keep orbiting the earth, achieving the necessary velocity to escape the earth's gravitational pull.

As per existing plans, the satellite is expected t…
