Way to add insult to injury, Samsung. So the media player version of my phone has dual cameras…AND Android 2.2. Yet the Galaxy S phones that you sold in the US are still stuck on 2.1. #Cmon. I know you can’t add a front facing camera to the device I already have…but you could at least give the people that bought your device the latest OS.
The PlayBook looks amazing and slick. Hopefully RIM, the makers of BlackBerry, will release this very soon, becasue we all know that Apple is gearing up to release an iPad 2 and Android tablets or on every carrier. But it looks as though RIM is doing the right thing by keeping the PlayBook in the public eye, as well as tying it very closely to it’s BlackBerry devices (with the PlayBook being able to tether to BlackBerry devices for internet; as well as share information as in e-mails, BBM, and contacts).
I, for one, can’t wait for the PlayBook. How about you?
If you’re on Facebook then you may have noticed that people are changing their Facebook statuses and putting up these random numbers. Now I may not know exactly why people are putting these statuses up…nor do I care. Here’s what I know however, the statuses need to stop. If you’re trying to send a message to someone, then send a message. Don’t try to be subliminal, just put it out there. Or just send them a message and state your feelings. Facebook people, please stop filling up my timeline with your pointless nummerated babble.
- it’s REAL!!! The Google Nexus S, the phone that I’ve been posting about for months has now come to real life. Not only has Google announced the Nexus S, but Engadget has a small hands-on. Yes, I’m excited for it…but I will probably not be getting it, because it’s going to be a Best Buy exclusive. Which I think is a stupid idea…but oh well.
- "Buy Anywhere, read anywhere"…as long as you have a browser.Yes Google finally has a bookstore with over 3 million titles and 4,000 publishers. I actually think that’s already more than the iBooks bookstore. Google’s is focused on selling books and not creating ebook content wars with different devices. Google is however developing apps for the bookstore for Android (of course), browsers, iPhone and iPod (Google is trying to get approved), and the Nook and Sony e-readers. It doesn’t surprise me that the Nook can read Google books, since the Nook runs on Android. Noticeably the Kindle is missing, but that’s only because the Kindle has rights management on their books while Google’s are open. All in all, Google eBooks is a nice jump into the book market and there is no reason that more book stores are going to be a problem.
- Let’s hope this is true, because their 2010 was lacking. In 2010, while carriers were advancing their wireless networks with HSPA+, LTE, and WiMax; BlackBerry hasn’t even been in the running. Let’s hope that RIM can get it’s act together. The video from a Rogers TabLife shows some of the awesome possibilities of the PlayBook. Let’s hope that RIM can expand on the possibilities of the PlayBook and take it to the BlackBerry. Make it so, RIM.
