Google Readying 3-D Mapping "Tango" Tablets For Developers

3D Project Tango
Google is reportedly getting ready to release 4,000 prototype tablets that would help advance the company's Project Tango, which is a 3D mapping and modeling effort involving multiple robotics experts from around the world. The story was first published in the Wall Street Journal last week.

Google may provide these specialized tablets to developers attending Google I/O next month. The idea would be to see what sorts of applications and use cases developers would come up with.

According to a description of these "Tango tablets" (not Google's term) in the article the devices would have a 7-inch form factor: 

The device would come with a 7-inch screen and will be equipped with two back cameras, infrared depth sensors and advanced software that can capture precise three-dimensional images of objects, said these people.
There are a range of immediate potential uses for the Tango technology: gaming, augmented reality, environmental or interior design, indoor navigation and assistance for visually-impaired persons (who could listen to auditory cues based on mapping information). There are also commercial and ad-related applications of the technology — however the advertising dimension (so to speak) is further out.

Project Tango could, in one sense, be seen as an indoor Street View equivalent (though the technology doesn't take "pictures"). It could greatly accelerate Google's effort to map indoor spaces with the aid of third parties. I also wonder whether Google would be able to put a version of the Tango technology in special Glass headsets.

Google creates new Pro-Android Campaign to Better Compete with Apple's iPhone & Keep Samsung In Line

A new report posted today claims that Google wants to take a run at Apple's iPhone with a new line of smartphones called "Silver" that's really just killing off the Nexus branding for something that they could market better. The plan is also a part of a backup plan should Samsung decide to push their Tizen platform against Android.

The Information news site claims that they have the exclusive on Google's new plan. The Information is reporting that "Google is gearing up for a major effort to spur development of premium Android smartphones and re-assert control over the Android ecosystem as it seeks to better compete with the Apple iPhone and blunt the growing power of Samsung, the leading maker of Android phones.

The expensive effort involves dumping the four-year-old Google Nexus phone brand in favor of a new program called Silver, under which manufacturers and wireless carriers will effectively be paid to produce and sell high-end devices that closely adhere to Google specifications, according to four people briefed on the project. The requirements sharply limit the number of non-Google apps that can be pre-installed on devices, or mandate that phone owners be able to uninstall them.

The report notes that Google could spend as a billion dollars to support pro-Android OEM's. What would set Silver apart from normal Android is that Google would limit the number of third party apps and services included on the device, hinting that these phones will run the pure version of Android. Most popular Android smartphone makers, such as Samsung and HTC, put their own skin that focuses on their proprietary apps over Android. The deal is so good that even Samsung may join the program.

Efrati further states that "Google's main goals are to reverse consumer perceptions of Android as a down-market knock-off of the iPhone and establish a more consistent 'Google' experience for high-end Android customers."

Though there's one last point that might be the real motivator behind Google's new plan: "Google is worried that Samsung is taking over Android, pushing it in directions Google doesn't want to go. Silver would be part of a plant to reclaim the platform."

After years of Samsung toying with Tizen and experiencing a major setback in January with NTT DoCoMo, Samsung revealed earlier this month that their first Tizen phone, which will launch around the end of the second quarter, would be a high-end model and the second would mainly be aimed at the middle of the market to drive volume growth.

Is Google a little jittery about the prospect of Samsung drifting away from the Android ecosystem and pushing their own Tizen based smartphones over time? Yes of course they are and this is proof enough.

Amazon WMV DRM Removal: Play Amazon Instant Video on Nexus 10

If you have problems about playing Amazon Instant Video on your Nexus 10  tablet, you can check out the tutorial to Remove DRM from Amazon WMV and record Amazon Instant Video(.wmv) to your Nexus 10.

Have you purchased lots of WMV videos from Amazon store and want to put these Amazon Instant videos to your Google Nexus 10? As is known to everybody, the WMV videos purchased from Amazon store, including music, videos, movies, and TV show etc. are usually format type unsupported by the Google Nexus 10. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android/Windows 8 tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire (HD). So if you would like to transfer Amazon WMV videos to Nexus 10 for playback, you have to remove DRM from Amazon Instant Video and convert/record it to Nexus 10 compatible formats.

Refer to Google Nexus 10 supported codecs
  • Video codec: H.263, MPEG-4 SP, H.264 AVC
  • Audio codec: AAC LC/LTP, HE-AACv1 (AAC+), HE-AACv2 (enhanced AAC+), AMR-NB, AMR-WB 9, MP3, MIDI SMF, Ogg Vorbis, WAV

To do it, Pavtube ChewTune is a great help. It is an all-in-one DRM Removal Program to help you convert/record Amazon WMV videos effortlessly to Nexus 10 supported MP4 format in high quality. After that, you can play your Amazon Instant Video(WMV) on Nexus 10 very smoothly. Now, let's start to convert and transfer Amazon WMV to Nexus 7. (Note: For the common WMV videos, Pavtube Video Converter is recommended to you).

The screen is undoubtedly one of the standout features of the Nexus 10. As the name suggests, it measures 10 inches on the diagonal but more importantly packs an astounding 2,560x1,600-pixel resolution. We were previously blown away by the pin-sharp display of the new iPad with its 2,048x1,536-pixel resolution. The Nexus 10 casually swans past that, to offer an even more refined viewing experience.

Now you want to put some Amazon Instant videos to the Google Nexus 10? Wait a minute. The Amazon Instant videos, though mainly .wmv format, are not supported by Google Nexus 10. The problem is, those WMV videos you downloaded from Amazon are protected (by DRM), and can't be played on any Android tablet except for the Amazon Kindle Fire. To get the Amazon WMV playable on Nexus 10, you'll have to remove the DRM protection first. 

The tools you need to transfer Amazon WMV movies to Nexus 10: A powerful Amazon WMV video DRM remove tool and a WMV to Nexus 10 converter. Pavtube ChewTune combines these two tools together and makes it possible to watch purchased DRM videos on Nexus 10.

Remove DRM protection off Amazon video and convert WMV to the Nexus 10 for playing

Step 1: Load Amazon WMV video files to Pavtube ChewTune.

Install and launch the Pavtube WMV to Nexus 10 Converter, then click the add button to load the WMV video files to the program.

Step 2: Choose H.264 codec format for the Google Nexus 10 playing.

Click "Format" and select an output format for the Google Nexus 10. Here I choose "Android -> Google Nexus 10 H.264 Video (*.mp4)".

Step 3: Optimize the settings for Amazon video to Nexus 10 conversion.

If you find the default settings may not satisfy your need, can click the "Settings" button to change the settings by yourself.

For Mac users, it is necessary to custom profile settings, since there's no profile patch for OS X. Similarly, you can choose Nexus 7 format and custom the profile for Nexus 10 by clicking "Settings" and set the recommended settings as it shows below:

  • Codec: h264
  • Size (pix): 1920*1080 /  1280*720
  • Bitrate (kbps): 2000 ~ 3000
  • Frame Rate (fps): original

  • Codec: aac
  • Sample Rate (hz): 44100
  • Bitrate (bps): 128000
  • Channels: Stereo

Step 4: Convert Amazon video to Nexus 10 video format.

Having finished the settings? OK, just click the convert button and start to convert Amazon video to Google Nexus 10 format with ease.

When the conversion task is finished, you can click "Open" button to get the final output files for your Google Nexus 10 and transfer the converted videos to Google Nexus 10.

If you have music and videos to watch on the tablet, here's a guide for copying local videos to Google Nexus 10.
1. Use the USB cable that came with your 16 GB or 32 GB Nexus 10 to connect the tablet to your PC, and you'll receive a notification that the USB is connected.

2. Open the Notifications panel and touch USB connected. Then touch Turn on USB storage in the screen that opens to confirm that you want to transfer files. The Nexus 10 tablet is connected as USB storage, and the screen will indicate that USB storage is in use and you receive a notification. The Nexus 10 is mounted as a drive on your computer.

3. You can now copy videos from PC to the Google Nexus 10. During this time, you can't access the SD card from your Nexus 10 or share your tablet's data connection with your computer via USB.

4. When the videos are copied to the 16 GB/32 GB Nexus 10, you can disconnect your Nexus tablet from PC.

Like the Nexus 7, it does not include an SD card slot for additional storage, so you may need a Video Converter to compress very big file to smaller file size. (Learn more on Nexus 7 Column)

Tips: MKV, MOV, TS, MPG, Tivo, FLV, F4V and some AVI videos are not accepted formats and you have to convert HD Videos to Nexus 10 MP4 for playing before downloading them to the device.
