Continuing the long tradition of fooling, tech industry giants Google, Nokia, Motorola and others are coming up with innovative idea on April 1st 2014.
Nokia 3310 gets 41-megapixel PureView Camera
Remember the Nokia 3310? the hard brick phone that even throwing to the wall will not break. Nokia has relaunched the mobile with a little twist. Keeping its hard shell Nokia has added 41MP PureView camera with Zeiss optics and Xenon flash, and will run a modified version of Windows 8 to fit the unique ‘ClearDiamond’ three-inch WXGA (1280×768 pixels) display.
What’s more the classic metallic dark blue phone will now comes in different colourful shades including yellow, blue, red and green.
On the hardware side the 3310 is now powered by a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with 2GB RAM and carries 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded using a microSD card. The phone now supports 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth and Nokia’s has guaranteed that 4G LTE supported version will be coming later this year.
To add nostalgic feel to it Nokia has pre-loaded the phone (now smartphone) with evergreen games like Snake II, Pairs II, Space Impact and Bantumi, a currency converter and original monophonic ringtones.

hike direct cash transfers!
India’s popular messaging app hike has come up with an innovative service – hike Direct Cash Payments. The service allow one to send money to their friends on hike. It’s as simple as sending a photo, just take a pic of the cash and upload it to your account or send it to a friend. Hike will automatically detect the amount of cash and transfer it in under a micro-second.
Now to the big question – How does the money deposit work?
The biggest problem in India is that most users don’t have credit cards or debit cards, and even if they do, they don’t like entering them in mobile apps and websites. Even if they do, most mobile payment gateways work just as well as Rahul Gandhi gives TV interviews. So we solved that with our new patent pending technology which enables us to detect an image of a bank note, ping the Central Federal Reserve Bank’s servers to check if it’s valid, convert it to digital currency – hike coins (which uses the same robust distributed blockchain infrastructure as bitcoins), and invalidate the physical bank note through the Central Federal Reserve Bank’s servers, which will make the currency illegal tender. You can also alternatively insert the serial number of the bank note, and we’ll automatically detect the amount and add it.
