Smart Cyber-Shot QX100 and QX10

Sony officially announced the Cyber-shot QX100 and QX10 today at the IFA expo in Berlin. The two new lens-style cameras, which leaked online ahead of the event, are designed to work with your Android or iOS device to shoot high quality photos that can be instantly shared online. Both devices will be available through Sony’s online store later this month.

The QX100, priced at $500, is the more expensive of the pair. It comes equipped with a high-quality 1-inch 20.2-megapixel Exmor RCMOS sensor, a Carl Zeiss lens capable of 3.6x optical zoom, a BIONZ image processor, and a control ring for physically adjusting focus and zoom. The QX10 comes in at $250, and is equipped with an 18.2-megapixel sensor, a Sony G Lens capable of 10x optical zoom, and built-in Optical SteadyShot for quick focusing. It weighs just 4 ounces and comes in black or white.

Both models connect to Android and iOS devices via built-in WiFi and a Bluetooth connection established through NFC, working remotely from a close distance or physically attaching to your smartphone thanks to a spring-powered bracket. Sony will also release accessories for the QX100 and QX10 as well, including a dedicated tripod and a specialized case for the flagship Xperia Z handset.

Now Prepare for a Sweet New Treat

Android is the operating system that powers over 1 billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. As everyone finds chocolate so tempting, Android decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favourite chocolate treats, the KitKat®!

Google Our Giant Search Engine may launch a smart watch called GEM with the release of its Android 4.4 Kit Kat.

Fox News reports that a few months ago, Google had published a smartwatch patent, which detailed a watch with a user interface similar to Google Glass and featuring two touchpads on its wristband that can understand gestures such as pinching or stretching, just like Glass’s single pad.
