Tech updates for 2015

The year 2014 could be dedicated to the smartphone
innovations. There was a transition of high end smartphone models to cheaper
versions. Now, the major technology development is expected in this year 2015
which will drastically change our lives. Some of the gadgets are mentioned
below, let’s see…

Apple iWatch clearly seems like the most awaited
product to start of 2015. While the iWatch looks extremely promising on paper
and sports tons of external and internal features only a full test will reveal
more. This year laptop giant Lenovo too should launch their new smartwatch. And
why not, now that they have acquired Motorola, the required expertise should be
more than adequate. We have also been hearing rumors about HTC planning to dive
into the smartwatch market. Since the fitness bug has bitten us Indians too,
finally, expect brands like Goquii, Tom Tom and more to bring their fitness
products here sooner than before.
2014 was a year where smartphones pretty much ruled the
roost, with massive launches and advancements. The new iPhones made a big
splash and the Android kings in the likes of the HTC M8, Moto X ruled. However,
it was the low cost phones that showed true potential. Xiaomi (Mi4) and
Micromax will have even better spec’d phones lined up for 2015, the year when
you should be able to get your hands better phones that aren’t priced to burn a
hole in your pocket. But there will also be an elite list of devices that will
have you drop your jaws all over again. The ones that have us all interested
are the HTC M9, successor to the popular HTC M8. Oppo showed us it’s R5
smartphones in Singapore, the thinnest at the time of launch. Expect it to hit
the Indian market in January. Windows 10 Microsoft should take the lid off its
much awaited Windows 10 Operating System. Fanboys and users alike hope this new
OS will fix the problems they faced in Windows 8 (activation errors, updating
WiFi issues).

Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality (VR) tech and its possible applications
have fascinated brains and eyes around the world. While Oculus has got the ball
rolling, we believe 2015 is the year when things will finally begin to come
together, with the final consumer version hitting the market. You should also
keep your eyes peeled for Sony’s Project Morpheus VR. It is aimed at enabling
PS4 VR gaming and looks poised to shake up the tech world this year.

Windows 10
It will feature Cortana and also sport a new Xbox Live
app. Overall the inter face and settings will be getting quite a bit of tweaks.
But the burning question is, will they get rid of the start menu?

Come 2015 and the tablet war will get even hotter with
Microsoft looking to launch its Surface Mini tablet. But before that Samsung
should unveil its new Note 10.1 just in time to fight it out with Apple’s
upcoming iPad range. Also expected is Sony’s new 12in Xperia in the first quarter
of 2015.

Nothing beats the feel of shooting aerial videos;
normally you would need to jump off an airplane. Not anymore. With the fairly
easy availability of drones, at least internationally, I believe drone based
photography should literally reach new heights in 2015.Products like the DJI
Phantom, Parrot AR, Hubsan X4 and more have already proven their worth and the
videos and imagery shot with these products are simply spectacular. Drones make
shooting videos an overall fun experience and in recent times even avid
Hollywood directors have been using them to get tricky shots done at minimal
budgets. Though one has to be responsible enough while using drones, its
creative applications are unquestionable.
