Samsung shows camera module with 13MP sensor, image stabilization

Future smartphones from Samsung could have greatly improved photographs, thanks to the company's new camera sensor. The 13-megapixel component includes an anti-shake function that is able to correct angular errors of up to 1.5 degrees, writes Tech-On, beating the 0.7 degrees offered by other mobile camera sensors. The module can also produce an image that is eight times brighter than earlier generations of the item, allowing it to be used effectively in low light situations. Samsung Electro-Mechanics is negotiating with smartphone producers and plans volume production early next year.

Wordament reaches Android, first with Xbox Live achievements

The first game to have Xbox Live achievements on Android has been launched. Wordament, initially launching on Windows 8 before appearing on the iPhone and Windows Phone, lets players look for words in a grid of letters, with achievement points earned through the app being added to the player's Xbox Live account total, reports Android Central. The free app can also be logged into via a Facebook account for online leaderboards.
