Innovative technology like smart phones and tablets are becoming more accessible as new models are being brought out at cheaper prices. Stuff TV's Lucy Hedges discuses the latest state-of-the-art tech in this TV show.
Innovative technology from Google
What we’re seeing, especially from Google, they’re bringing out products that are really affordable but ram packed with the latest technology, be it their Nexus 4 smart phone which has just come out. It’s quad core, so it’s incredibly fast. It’s got the latest android operating system. So you’ve got one of the fastest phones on the planet, one of the most up-to-date smart phones on the planet, and it’s incredibly cheap, you can pick up an 8 gig model for £240. So it’s smart phones like this that are going to help people who aren’t that au fait with technology, to get a bit more used to how things are progressing. No one wants to spend 500 to £700 on a device they might use, you know, whereas Google’s ... what Google has done is enabling everybody, wants everyone to get involved with how technology is progressing, and it’s not just with their smart phone, they’ve got the Google Nexus 7
, a tablet, seven inches. You know it’s the first tablet that’s put android on the map. It’s the first android tablet that’s a great alternative to the iPad. Until now, everything’s been great, but nothing’s been, oh my gosh, that’s amazing. And again it’s because of the price.
Quad core processer again, incredibly fast, got the latest jelly bean operating system, loads of different quirks that Google brings to the table. And because it is Google, it’s going to be at the forefront of all the updates, all the operating system upgrades and things like that. So I think it’s devices like this that’s going to help people move on and help people get to grips with how technology is moving.
