iPad Will Change the Technology World

Posted in Culture, Mobile Phone, Technology with tags , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by phonicamagazineuk




Phonica Magazine is normally focused on mobile and games technology. Apple is a key topic in our writing because of the innovative and exceptional iPhone, the fantastically capable touch device which revolutionised the way we view handheld technology. Now Apple has announced the iPad, a crossover device somewhere between an iPhone and a Macbook- and it’s the most exciting piece of technology the world has ever seen.

Imagine that we once used to interact with our computer with a clunky mouse, our computer stuck to the wall with wires and its monitor equally immovable. Those days are gone. We don’t even need a keyboard anymore. Apple’s iPad is a revolutionary tablet computer which enables the user to manipulate everyday workloads with their hands, browse the full internet at arms length, purchase digital books, videos and music on the move and all of this for just $499.

There’s a lot to tell about the new iPad, the first thing to explain is the reason it’s appearing on a games and mobile phones blog. As the first piece of technology to incorporate all of the tech from one of our favourite phones, the 3GS, into a computing device- and the first piece of tech to allow usage of all the current apps on App Store on anything other than an iPhone or iPod Touch, and a product that will use 3G communication for data, this whole new category of product is directly related to everything Phonica holds dear. In fact it is a new territory and deserves its own space on the current tech landscape.

Tablet computing could bring major changes in gaming

Posted in Games, Gaming, Technology with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2010 by phonicamagazineuk


With Microsoft announcing the Slate tablet PC at CES and Apple’s long-rumoured tablet Mac expected this Spring, 2010 could be the year that tablet computing really takes off. Both Microsoft and Apple are promising to pack the power of a laptop into the much smaller chassis of a tablet computer. While there is some reason to be sceptical about either company being able to successfully combine power and good battery life, if they do live up to their promises, the devices could be interesting new gaming platforms.

Before last year, it was hard to imagine an Apple launch being interesting for gamers at all but the iPod Touch has changed all that. Apple is now pushing the device as a handheld platform and suddenly the idea of playing games on an Apple product doesn’t seem so weird. Since tablet computers will rely on similar touch screen technology to the Touch and there is the possibility of an Apple tablet using the app store, there is already a strong stable of developers who would no doubt delight at adapting their games, and developing new ones, for a more powerful computer with a much bigger screen.

80s classic Paperboy is coming to the iPhone

Posted in Games, Gaming, Mobile Phone, Technology with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2009 by phonicamagazineuk

Launch those papers and power-slide that bike, all on your iPhone

Everyone loves Paperboy. Its simple premise of throwing papers through windows, avoiding craters in the pavement (where did he live; Maplesville Road, Iraq?) and occasionally crashing into rabid dogs was a world wide hit, and an instant classic. Whether you were playing it on the Spectrum, the GameBoy, the Megadrive, or even on your PC, it still ticked all the right boxes that a game should; and now it’s coming to the iPhone.

Fans of the rag-chucker have been lobbying for ages, trying to get Paperboy an appearance on the iPhone. Well, thanks to Elite Systems, the UK based developer and electronic publisher of mobile and portable games, their wish has been granted.

In a recent interview with CGN, the UK based firm have said; “It’s hoped that the English-language versions of Paperboy will go live on App Stores on Friday 18 December 2009, or soon thereafter and non-English-language versions soon after that.”

Although a trailer and a selection of screenshots are due to be released shortly, it’s probably pointless viewing them, as we all know what to expect for this ancient classic. There’s going to be a kid (or boy) on a bike, and he’s going to be delivering local news sheets (or papers) to the surrounding neighbourhood. Just a guess…..

Personally, I can’t wait for this little gem to hit the iPhone, and fingers crossed it’ll control as well as always. Eat paper, mad old man! Bosh!
