Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A (2016) brings Note 7’s S Pen to tablets

first_imgSamsung has launched an all-new upgraded version of its recently launched Galaxy Tab A (2016) that brings the Note 7’s trademark S Pen stylus to tablets. To recall, the original Galaxy Tab A (2016) was launched in May earlier this year.The new Galaxy Tab A (2016) is simply the original with a stylus, which means the former also brings along key software elements that the S Pen brings (and supports) to the table, already on the Note 7. The tablet is however exclusive to South Korea for now.Speaking of specifications, the Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen comes with a 10.1-inch display with a 1920×1200 pixel resolution. It is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor clubbed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory which is further expandable via microSD card slot.

Samsung is aware of the fact. The company, while launching the Note 7 in India, had acknowledged it. It has postponed the launch of Galaxy TabPro S here to an indefinite period of time.advertisementThe Tab S2 has however done pretty well in India, according to Samsung, but still not well enough to call it a success story. The Galaxy Tab A (2016) with S Pen looks like a compelling device on paper, but, whether or not it would see the light of day in India is yet to seen.Also Read: Samsung holds back Galaxy TabPro S India launch, awaits better days for tabletslast_img read more

Post Uri attack, Delhi Police to set up strike-proof, hi-tech underground control room

first_imgConstantly at high risk of a terrorist attack, the Delhi Police has proposed to set up a strike-proof, underground control room which will keep a parallel data & communication network ready in the event of an emergency. The proposal came up at a recent security review meeting of top police officers after the terrorist attack on Uri Army base in which 19 soldiers lost their lives.Top-level sources told Mail Today that the proposed bunker control room will be equipped with flash sensors for detection of any nuclear radiation or biological agents decontamination facility and communication system, an indication of city police’s war-time preparedness.COMMUNICATION NETWORK OF POLICE UNDER BUNKER CONTROL”The bunker control room will maintain communication network and data of entire police department. The idea is that in case there is a major attack, this underground PCR will maintain coordination with all the security wings,” said a senior officer, adding that the proposal is at a “very initial stage” but a detailed project report is in the works for approval.A police team is in the process of identifying land for the project and has zeroed in two properties where the bunker can be set up. The police will consult other central agencies, including the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), to set-up the proposed underground control room, the senior officer said.According to the senior officer, the proposed control room will act as a parallel emergency facility which can immediately shift the central operations in case of a terror, including aerial, strike. Delhi Police headquarters which houses its control room at ITO is on the radar of terrorists and any attackadvertisementSTATE OF THE ART FACILITIESThe underground facility will also act as an integrated field shelter in case of attacks by weapons of mass destruction like nuclear, chemical and biological besides strengthening the police force in the city.Police is also planning to create an isolated room which can accommodate over a few dozen people for over a week along with requisite stores, equipment and beds in case of a chemical, biological, radioactive or nuclear (CBRN) warfare. The aim is to build a structure which is completely sealed and has positive air pressure. The shelters have their own source for power, water and sewage disposal.”It should have automatic CBRN warning system with change over facility, electrification including generator sets and fittings, water supply and water disposal, decontamination facility, communication system,” the officer saidSECURED UNDERGROUND NETWORKThe idea to get a secured underground network was discussed during a security review meeting of senior officials after India’s surgical strike across PoK. Security agencies have already placed two missile-tracking radars in Delhi as the first part of a planned effort to give the city a missile attack shield.INDIA’S FIRST BUNKER CONTROLIf the bunker control room idea gets a green signal from Central authorities, Delhi would be the first city in India to do it. A similar proposal was planned by Chandigarh but the project could not see the light of the day. A similar 24×7 underground Police control room is functional at Singapore.DATA SECURED, COMMUNICATION NETWORK ACTIVEAlthough nobody has yet had a chance to study a low-yield nuclear blast but as the threat of terrorist attack or a nuclear strike grows, it is crucial for cities to have contingency plans in place. In case of any mass attacks or natural disasters, this control room will play a crucial role as it will keep all data secured and communication network active. CBRN-protected mobile shelters are made available during key global events including meetings of top leaders as also sporting events like the Olympics and Commonwealth Games. In others nations, including the US and some European countries, safe houses are built for the community near hospitals and schools to guard civilian population.2 FAILED CYBER ATTACKSMail Today last week reported that unidentified persons attempted to access the Delhi Police control room recently but could not break into the hightech system. According to police, a similar failed cyber attack on the control room was witnessed before January 26 this year.Also Read: Amid fear psychosis, border dwellers want bunkers Nuclear proliferation linkages have Pakistan fingerprints: India at UNlast_img read more
