After we posted this collage comparing how GTA V has evolved from San Andreas, we received a lot of positive responses. One of the request was adding recent screenshots and have the scope broadened aside from GTA: S.A.
Currently, it took us a while to find new screens for comparison but thanks to our contact from GTAF, we found this Facebook page posting several pictures highlighting a few key images from GTA V to San Andreas and an eye-candy from GTA IV.
Let’s check them out.
Like we said earlier, gangsters from grove street will be back! Here you can see a shot taken from San Andreas compared with GTA V.
Vinewood Hills from a downslope
Franklin with his binoculars from a porch compared with CJ doing the same thing.
A Dodo plane flying from Los Santos’ beach compared with San Andreas on the same location.
These two pictures above don’t need any more explanation
And a comparison shot between Bahama Mamas from GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony to GTA V with Trevor and his dirt bike. For those unaware, Bahama Mamas is also seen from other GTA titles like San Andreas and Liberty City.
As for the origination of these screenshots, it appears they were submitted by several fans from GTA5FC. Hats tip to all of you.
Expect Grand Theft Auto V to arrive on PS3 & Xbox 360 this September 17.

TelekomPresse, a German site, was able to get their hands on the new BlackBerry 10 operating system which is supposed to be unveiled by RIM on the 30th of January. According to the site, the handset is supposedly called the BlackBerry Z10. Apparently, they say the new smartphone looks so much like the famous iPhone 5 which made some people take a second look at the new RIM handset.
When putting the phones beside each other, you can easily notice the resemblance of the touchscreen (minus the Apple home button) as well as the bezel. On the other hand, the iPhone 5 only has a 4-inch display while the Z10 has a slightly bigger screen at 4.2-inch. Placement of the power button also differs since the iPhone has its button on the top-right side while the Z10’s power button is found at the center-top side. Other buttons and connections are the same on both phones but are only placed on different sides.
The systems are also alike in terms of voice-control functionality but the BlackBerry Z10 has faster speeds. In other categories, some users claim that Z10 is better than the iPhone 5.
Since the official unveiling of the phone is still a few days off, we can still give you rumours about other specifications of the BB Z10. This includes a 1.5GHz dual-core processor partnered with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. There is also an option of a 32GB storage. The Z10 also has two cameras, one 2MP in front and one 8MP at the back.
In 2011, with the introduction of the Nexus 7, Google and Asus have eased up some scope to other manufacturers to come up with more low-cost solid Android tablets. The Asus MeMO Pad, which was unveiled just a few hours ago, comes as a part of the Android tablet family to put a scratch in their sales numbers. There have been some more Android tablets with solid budget specs, like the recently launched (at CES 2013) Acer Iconia B1-A71. But, we’ve decided to pit the Nexus 7 against Asus’s latest offering, MeMO Pad.
It can’t be really difficulty to choose between Nexus 7 and MemMO Pad tablets. The new MeMO Pad doesn’t come with powerful hardware like the Nexus 7, but it at least bring Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS powered Android tablet for a reasonable price. Both tablets come heavily entrenched in a rich content ecosystem. If we dig deeper in sales number, the Nexus 7 is easily wiping the competition in Android tablets market right now.
Nexus 7 comes with a powerful quad-core Tegra 3 processor running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS out of the box, while the MeMO Pad packs a less powerful VIA WM8950 processor clocked at 1GHz (working in tandem with more than enough 1GB of RAM and Mali-400 GPU), and it is currently listed as running Android 4.1, which is a bit old for latest Android offerings. Fortunately, MeMO Pad in coming with microSD card slot, which is something missing in Nexus 7. So, you will be able to add more memory, if they feel 8GB/16GB that’s on board out of the box isn’t quite enough. Let’s see how it stacks up against Nexus 7.
