Wikipedia has added a new functionality where in users can edit posts from their smartphones or tablets. Earlier it could be done through desktop only.

Wikipedia mobile web software engineer Juliusz Gonera wrote in a blog post, “As a trial, the first version of mobile editing requires a Wikimedia account. To get started, look for the pencil icon. If you don’t have an account, don’t worry, it’s quick and easy to create one on desktop or mobile! Once you’re logged in, you can use the pencil next to any section to make changes to that section.”


He added, that this new mobile editing feature will be helpful for those regularly look up something quickly on Wikipedia on their phone, notice a small mistake, and wished they could fix it on the spot?

Juliusz further added, “Before today, users could only edit Wikipedia entries from desktop computers – however, more than 15 percent of users access the site from their mobile devices”. Wikipedia saw that disconnect and decided to do more to let anyone with Internet access contribute to the sum of all human knowledge.


BlackBerry A10 Z00 images surface online


Images of the upcoming large display bearing BlackBerry A10 ‘Z00’ Aristo were spotted online.


BlackBerry has been rumored for working on a large display bearing BlackBerry 10 OS smartphone – A10 Z00 Aristo. Vietnamese website Tinhte posted a video and images of the BlackBerry A10 “Z00” prototype handset. The BlackBerry A10 “Z00” is claimed to be the company’s first large screen device. There is no word on the launch date of this handset.


The BlackBerry A10 prototype carried Z00 marking so it is quite likely it will be branded in the Z series of touchscreen BlackBerry 10 OS devices. BlackBerry will use a 5-inch Amoled display with HD resolution. Under the chassis, it will pack a dual-core 1.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 mobile processor paired with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB on-board storage.


At the rear is a 8 megapixel camera with LED Flash for HD imaging and in the front lies a 2 megapixel camera for video calls. By default, this handset will arrive with BlackBerry 10.2 OS version pre-loaded. Other features include micro USB port, Micro HDMI out, WiFi, DLNA and NFC chip.


BlackBerry will pack a massive 2800 mAh battery to power the large 5-inch Amoled display and hopefully takes care of the battery woes experienced with the Z10 handset.

Lenovo’s rumored X910 smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 faces the camera to give a quick look at the device.


Lenovo was reported of working a high end Google Android based smartphone running a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip. Now a Chinese website, Leiphone, published images of the Lenovo X910 handset running the Android mobile operating system with a custom layer of interface from Lenovo.


Lenovo will soon join the league of major high end Android based smartphone makers with its ambitious X910 handset. The images of the Lenovo X910 reveal a slim looking device with a large screen display – most likely 5-inch or higher. This display will have native 1920×1080 pixel resolution.


The images show the usage of stainless steel like rim that forms lower part of the phone at the back side.

The Lenovo X910 is first being targeted for the China region since the images clearly show Dual-SIM set up with a SIM tray and also SIM indicator in the Status bar of the device. Lenovo has codenamed the X910 smartphone as K6.

This will be yet another powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 based smartphone that can be expected later this year.
