How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.

BlackBerry Key2 Release Date, Price and Specs

BlackBerry Key2 Release Date, Price and Specs
There is a new BlackBerry on the way in 2018 and it's now confirmed it'll be called the Key2. The return of BlackBerry was a surprising one, but a welcome one to many. It turns out that the KeyOne was more than a nostalgia trip and actually a quite capable Android smartphone.


BlackBerry Mobile tweeted a teaser confirming the name of the phone and the time and place of the launch

If you want a physical keyboard on a slim, secure Android device, it is literally your only option. Until the sequel, of course. It’s been codenamed Athena for a while, but surely it’ll be the Key2.

Here is everything you want to know about the BlackBerry Key2.

When is the BlackBerry KeyTwo release date?
BlackBerry Mobile confirmed the name and launch date of Key2 in the below tweet:
The KeyOne launched in London in April 2017, so it'll be a full 14 month gap till the Key2 is unveiled in New York on 7 June.

'An icon reborn' is a ballsy tagline if it's referencing the KeyOne, which was a good but hardly iconic phone despite our good review. Presumably it's a reference to BlackBerry in general, as the leaks show the Key2 will look exactly like the KeyOne.
How much will the BlackBerry KeyTwo cost?
This is harder to call. The standard KeyOne retails for £499/$499, but with new hardware may come a higher price.

We expect the Key2 to cost at least £599/$599 given the probable hike in internal specs.

What are the rumoured specs of the BlackBerry KeyTwo?
Specific features and specifications have been hard to come by but what we do have are leaks of renders and also some real-world photos. Take a look:

Yep, it looks an awful lot like the KeyOne, particularly the later Black Edition.

There’s still a long display, keyboard, textured back, USB-C port, headphone jack and capacitive navigation keys.

But there are some changes too. The keys look slightly larger and this time they are matte, unlike the clear shiny keys on the KeyOne. There’s also far less silver trim, a BlackBerry logo on the spacebar which may well still be the fingerprint reader, although this is not on the photo leak, only on the render.

There are also dual cameras on the rear, with a slight bump. BlackBerry has never been a bastion of mobile photography, but any upgrade to the passable but not great KeyOne camera is welcome to us.

The picture of the AirPods is supposedly taken on the new device, hence the watermark reading 'BlackBerry Key2', a now confirmed accurate clue to the branding of the new phone.

On the photo you will also notice a grid on the button to the right of the spacebar and symbol key. On a BlackBerry this is usually a shift key, but this may be a shortcut key to the dial pad or even app drawer. Or it’s a fake! Leaks, eh.

Of course, this is all the work of TCL, a company licensing the BB name rather than BlackBerry itself. But BlackBerry does work on the software, and we are hoping for Android Oreo on the Key2, an upgrade that has not yet hit the KeyOne.

We’ll keep our eyes peeled for the latest Key2 updates and have a full review of the phone upon its release.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

There’s something of a lack of new flagship smartphones at MWC 2018 but Nokia has plenty of new devices to feast your eyes on, including a sleek handset to rival the Galaxy S9. Here’s our Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review.
You would assume that Nokia’s new flagship would be one of the biggest smartphones (in terms of importance) to be unveiled at MWC but Huawei and LG have delayed their respective 2018 devices. So it’s a case of Nokia vs Samsung vs Sony.
Although a Nokia 9 was a possibility, the firm has actually announced the Nokia 8 Sirocco which is quite a radical phone for HMD – the company with the rights to the Nokia brand. For now, this is the Nokia 9.

It's easy to forget that the Nokia 6 is a year old, given that it didn't make its way to the UK until August, but it was actually unveiled much earlier in January 2017. The company has in January 2018 announced an update to the original smartphone, with the 2018 model now official.
Currently China-only, the new Nokia 6 will also become available in Europe in April, priced at 279€ (around £245).

Nokia 8110 4G Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8110 4G Review: Hands-on MWC might usually be about smartphones and other high-end gadgets but a feature phone has caused quite a big of hype. HMD has re-launched the Nokia phone seen in The Matrix. Here we go hands-on with the Nokia 8110 4G. 
Let’s face it, sometimes old things are cooler than new one and although the Nokia 8110 4G is technically a new phone, it’s another example of the firm bringing back a classic.
Following the Nokia 3310, this is the second ‘retro classic reloaded’ and although it’s been 22 years, the Nokia 8110 is back.
