It was at the end of last week when we brought you word that the Sony NEX-7 successor could very well see a delay because of manufacturing issues, with no exact date in sight just yet. All is good and well now that the folks over at SonyAlphaRumors have shared that the very same Sony NEX-7 successor should be shipping out to the masses when the middle of October 2013 rolls around. No hardware specifications have been confirmed just yet, but chances are it will come with the 85mm f/1.4 lens. There are also whispers that a high quality zoom lens is also well on its way in time for the October release, and something on the sidelines, we could very well be looking at a Sony NEX-5 successor to boot – in addition to a bevy of other lenses to go along with it.
Would you be one of the few (or many, it remains to be seen) who are desperately looking forward to see just what Sony is capable of dishing out with the NEX-7 successor?
Boost Mobile announced today that it will be offering the LG Optimus F7 smartphone to its customers from June 27th for $299. Dubbed as a “premium” Android smartphone that’s capable of running on Sprint’s 3G and 4G LTE data networks, the LG Optimus F7 will be available from Boost Mobile for the aforementioned price, without any contractual obligations. While the LG Optimus F7 might not be that much of an Android powerhouse the press release makes it out to be, its certainly an impressive mid-range device.
The LG Optimus F7 has a 1.5GHz dualcore Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, dual mode 3G/4G LTe, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and GPS, Instant Alert and an LED Home Button. It has a 8 megapixel rear facing camera and a 1.3 megapixel one up front. Its powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The smartphone also comes with QSlide 2.0, which allows users to overlay up to two app windows over an existing open application. Size and transparency can be adjusted, thus providing users with greater multitasking functionality. The battery provides enough power for the 4.7 inch True HD IPS display, while promising up to 17 hours of talk time.
