Windows 8.1 Preview is here

Windows 8.1 Preview

 

3

 

 

Yesterday Microsoft announced the preview version for Windows 8.1 at a conference in San Francisco, the company have introduced a few tweaks and some bunch of new features. But if you were hopping for it to return to Window 7 feel then you will gonna get disappointed. Now no more talk and lets check out its new features

 

New Features in Window 8.1

 

  • Search in the charm bar is enhanced and integrates Bing. We have a new Search EveryWhere option through which you can search via Bing Directly.

2

 

 

  • Alarms, Health & Fitness, Sound Recorder, Reading List, and Scan utility applications introduced.
  • Internet Explorer 11 which were fully expected in this new version!!!
  • Flexibility in resizing tiles(Large, Wide, Medium, Small). Tiles resizing has been made easy by just holding on click on a tile and selecting the required size, as simple as that!!
  • A better way to “Personalize” your home screen.

2

 

 

  • Able to categorize tiles and put names on top of block.
  • Improved tile movement.
  • Start button alternative. Yup you heard right the much howled feature for Window 8 is released in this version by integrating it to previous Window 7 like Start button but it really isn’t like a Start Button.

A right-click on the so-called Start Button pulls up a quick launch menu of shorts. The menu displays a list of administrative

tools like Power Options, Event View, Disk Management and Windows Shells. It’s not customizable.

 

5

 

  • Windows Store overhaul! Yet its obvious, window store is filled with whole new lot of apps and we liked some of these changes 🙂
  • Built–in cloud storage using SkyDrive. SkyDrive is integrated now and a separate new setting menu is available for it helping you customizing and changing it as per your need.

6

 

 

Some Other featurs are:- 

  • Proxy setup within Windows 8
  • An new and easier way to join a Workplace
  • Multitasking to the next level and much more..

Improved Mutlitasking in Window 8.1

 

Surely these changes have largely improved Window 8. But the main question arises that will Microsoft would able to attract back Window 7 customers??

I thinks that’s a much difficult question and will require some more features and changes to UI for it success.

 

So what you are waiting for, Just install it now.

 

Installing Window 8.1 freshly or over Window 8

[box type=”info” ]There are two ways to install Windows 8.1 Preview: through the Windows Store or through the ISO.

Click this link to choose your most preferred method. ISO files are not available yet.

If you’re running Windows 8 and you want to install Windows 8.1 Preview using the ISO, it’s important that you know where your Windows 8 product key is. When you update to the final edition of Windows 8.1 you’ll need your Windows 8 product key to activate.

 

To install Windows 8.1 Preview from within Windows 8, follow these steps:

1.Download the ISO (.iso) file.

2.Double-tap or double-click the ISO file.

3. Double-tap or double-click setup.exe and follow the steps.

If you’re using Windows RT, the only way to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Preview is through the Windows Store. If you install Windows 8.1 Preview through the Windows Store, you don’t need a product key.

If you download the ISO, you’ll need to enter this product key(PROVIDED BY MICROSOFT IN THE WINDOWS 8.1 PREVIEW FAQ): NTTX3-RV7VB-T7X7F-WQYYY-9Y92F. [/box]

Best Budget Mobile to buy under ₹15,000

Best Budget Mobiles

Smartphones have evolved much from 2009. The budget smartphones at that time were cheap looks with plagued feature and of course a useless hardware. Today however, we have came a long way since that devices sold in the market these days are not only capable of offering smooth performance along with a good interface, but also have ability to run all apps available in market.

We have tested many mobiles for this particular article ranging from ₹7k to ₹15k and finally after many testing we have 3 winners under this buying advice.

[box type=”shadow” ]Smartphones below ₹15,000[/box]

We have compared as many as 20 smartphones in this category namely Karbonn a9+, a21, a30, Videocon a30, lava xolo x500, xolo 800, sony xperia tipo, micromax canvas 2 A110, a90s, a116 canvas HD and few more…..

If you are considering a smart screen smartphone than  Lava Xolo X500 and Sony Xperia Tipo falls under the category.

Lava Xolo X500 with a price of ₹10,000 come with a decent 480×320 pixels LCD with a 5MP camera. It comes with a 1.2GHz Dual Core Processor with 466MB RAM running on Android 4.04. In contrary Sony Xperia Tipo feels really cute with a 3.2 inch touchscreen and comes with a price tag of ₹8900.

But I would recommend that go for good and large touchscreen device under which come best for money device Micromax Canvas 2 A110 pricing around ₹10,000. It features a 1GHz dual Core processor with 512MB RAM with a 8MP camera running on Android 4.0.

a110-feature-img1-R

If you can spend a little more and want a ultimate device than go and get MicroMax Canvas a116 HD. It have a price tag of ₹13,990 with a 1.2GHz quad core processor with a 1GB of RAM and 1280×720 pixels LCD. It comes with a 8MP camera running on Android 4.1.1 with a dual sim and screen length of 4.5 inches slightly lower than Canvas 2 A110. It is of Samsung galaxy nexus style with a 5inches of touchscreen. The rear of device is plasticity with glossy making it fingerprint magnet. The device is really right and best to buy for that tag price.

Micromax A116 Canvas HD release date and price

Any other suggestion of any mobile in this price tag?
