Pakistan throws spanner in SAARC talks, day 1 ends without any fruitful agreements Open in new window
Source Icon DNA - India
Talks on the first day of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summit ended without any fruitful agreements, after Pakistan on Wednesday reportedly blocked discussions pertaining to connectivity, infrastructure and energy. According to reports, Pakistan vetoed any agreements to integrate energy grids and to free up road and rail movement between member countries. Significantly, all these proposals were backed by India. During the talks, India was working towards the delivery of tangible outcomes as most of the issues under discussion were agreed upon and had been discussed at senior levels between the governments and had also been talked of in the standing committees. The connectivity, infrastructure and energy proposals are being seen as crucial for improving cross-border trade which is at a dismal 5 percent, despite a free-trade act which is in force since 2006. Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asserting that a prosperous SAARC needs the strong foundation of a secure South Asia, urged all participating nations to work together to combat terrorism and trans-national crimes. The Prime Minister also stated that India's vision for the region rests on five pillars – trade, investment, assistance, cooperation in every area, contacts between our people – and, all through seamless connectivity.

Microsoft releases Lumia 535 for Rs 9,199 Open in new window
Source Icon DNA - India
Microsoft had recently announced the first in its newly branded non-Nokia line, and they finally launched the Microsoft Lumia 535 today .  Shipping with the Windows Phone 8.1 OS and the latest firmware update, Lumia Denim, the dual-sim phone is priced at Rs. 9,199 and comes in Bright green, bright orange, white and black. Microsoft says it is aiming to give smartphone users more for less, and they seem to be treading that line decently, albeit maybe falling a little short on the hardware offering. Snapdragon 200 Quad-core processor clockig in at 1.2GHz, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, expandable upto 128 GB and 15 GB free cloud storage keep this piece of hardware relevant. Meanwhile the 5 LCD screen with 220 ppi (960x540) display and 5 MP rear and front camera might be a slight letdown for the photography enthusiast. Combine all that with a 1905 mAh battery, and it may seem like there's quite a bit lacking, but it's ultimately do-able for the low price tag attached to it.  The pre-installed Denim update adds a lot of features like sying Hey Cortana to wake up the phone's interactive search assistant and faster shooting speeds for the camera.      ReportSci/TechDNA Web TeamMumbaiMicrosoftLumiaLumia 535smartphoneNokiaWIndows PhonetechnewsWednesday, 26 November 2014 - 3:24pmWednesday, 26 November 2014 - 3:24pm dnai.in/21 952
