Gaming on 1080p vs 1200p Monitor

I recently bought Dell UltraSharp 24-Inch IPS Monitor with a screen resolution of 1920×1200. Most 24 inch monitors have a resolution of 1920×1080, so you get to see more pixels and content on a higher resolution 1200p monitor.

It is great for productivity, but do get to see extra pixels and a higher field of view on a 1200p monitor? I took these screenshots from Battlefield 4 to test it out.

Battlefield 4 with 1920×1200 resolution – High settings (Click image to view full resolution)

Battlefield 4 with 1920×1080 resolution – High settings
bf4-1080p

Even though 1200p monitor has higher resolution and pixel count, but 1080p monitor has a wider field of view compared to 1200p monitor.

Google Nexus S review

Google’s Android smartphone, Google Nexus S is out and available for purchase at Best Buy in the US. Google Nexus S is the first device to run the very new Android 2.3 “Gingerbread” operating system.

Google Nexus S has a curved, WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera with flash, android based NFC wireless tag reader, the Nexus S has more than just a new OS… Just like Nexus One…Nexus S is here to make the waves.

I am especially intrigued by its display and improved user interface. I can safely call it the best Android smartphone if you are looking to get a new smartphone.

Carphone Warehouse in the UK will start selling Google Nexus S from December 20th.

It is manufactured by Samsung and measures 124.5mm x 63mm x 11mm (4.9in x 2.5in x .4in) and weighs 129.5g (4.6oz) making it slimmer than Samsung’s Vibrant phone.

New operating system, that adds new user experience and better functionality are the striking features on Google NExus S. Especially the new task manager, which would let the user to kill running apps. The new changes to the keyboard and select/copy/paste system. The new keyboard is better than previous versions.

Price for Nexus S is $529 for unlocked and $199 with a T-mobile contract.

Google Call Phone makes calling easy & affordable

As I logged on my gmail account today I was happy to see the new Call Phone feature, which Google hopes to roll out to more countries soon, will US users to make calls to phones around the world from their computers.

Calls to the US and Canada will be free for at least the rest of the year and calls to other countries will be billed at our very low rates according to Google. “We worked hard to make these rates really cheap with calls to the UK, France, Germany, China, Japan – and many more countries – for as little as 2 cents per minute.”

Calling to India is just 0.06 cents/ minute! Watch Out Skype!
