RIM has had a rough couple of years, there's simply no beating around that bush by this point. With Android and iOS taking up a whopping 96% of the total smartphone market, the team at BlackBerry and the unfortunate recent releases that have plagued their brand have been beaten to a pulp by more responsive touch screens, cleaner notification systems, and ecosystems that were pre-designed to sustain millions, if not billions of devices at a time without a hitch.


We've assembled a quick list of pro's and cons from the proposed OS, so you can decide if the next round of BlackBerry's is a purchase or a pass.


Pros


BlackBerry Messenger gets an upgrade called BBM Screenshare, which allows you to share either what's being seen by the primary camera or what's on your screen, during the video call.


The BlackBerry camera uses Timeshift, a feature not unlike Samsung's BestFace that allows you to take multiple pictures of the same setting and combine the best elements from each.


Cons


The keyboard looks like it may take some getting used to for any Apple or Android veterans. They have implemented new ways to auto correct that seem ingenious on paper...but so did a lot of ideas that RIM has had over the past half-decade, so we remain skeptical.


No details on the browser yet, which can't bode well for a company notorious for the worst mobile browser currently crawling the web.

Last year, Samsung introduced a few Android candybars that featured both touchscreens, and full QWERTY keyboards. One of them was the Galaxy M Pro GT-B7800 with Android Gingerbread on it, and now looks like we now have a successor to it.


The FCC certified GT-B7810, an Android-running QWERTY phone from Samsung images have been leaked.  Apparently running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Samsung B7810 looks a lot like the older B7800 model.


Samsung GT-B7800 features HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a landscape display with 480 x 360 pixels, Bluetooth 3.0, 3.5mm headset jack, rear camera, 1,200 mAh battery, and MicroSD card support. We don't know how much internal memory the new smartphone has, and neither the speed of its processor.  We will just have to wait and see.

 

 



Samsung's roadmap was revealed by Technobuffalo this morning, here we can see what Samsung has in store for us for the next couple of months.  Starting off with the Galaxy Note 8.0. As previously rumored, the Galaxy Note 8.0 comes with Android Jelly Bean, a 1280 x 800 display, S Pen, quad-core 1.6GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, 5MP rear camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera.

 

 

The Galaxy Xcover 2 will run Android Jelly Bean (version 4.1 or 4.2) and, like its predecessor, it's going to be dustproof and waterproof. Other features: 4 inch WVGA display, HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,700 mAh battery. The handset seemingly measures 130.5 × 67.7 × 11.9 mm, and weighs 148 grams.



The Samsung Galaxy Plus will have a 2.8-inch 240×320 touchscreen, a 2 MP camera, an 850 MHz Broadcom processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, quad-band GSM, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1,200 mAh battery. It will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The first is the the Keon(right) is a low end budget smartphone. There's a Snapdragon S1 SoC clocked at 1GHz, full support for the usual 3G and 2G bands, 4GB of storage, and 512MB of RAM. The display is a pokey 3.5-inch 480×320 unit, and there's only a 3-megapixel rear shooter, but there is a micro SD slot, GPS, and 802.11n.


The second phone is the Peak (left), similiar device, difference is it has a 4.3-inch 960×540 display, a front-facing camera, an 8MP rear camera, and a dual-core Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.2GHz. It's the enthusiast version, in other words.


No pricing available for either device, though the Keon will hopefully come in at around $100-150. Both phones will be available "in February." Both phones, of course, will be fully SIM unlocked, and will receive over-the-air Firefox OS updates.


GeekPhone says both Firefox OS developer smartphones will be available starting next month.

A Samsung Galaxy S IV had just performed an Antutu benchmark and revealed the specifications of the device.  According to a new AnTuTu test, here's what the Galaxy S4 will have to offer:


  • 4.99-inch display with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution
  • 1.8GHz eight-core Exynos 5 Octa CPU
  • 2GB of RAM

Snapdragon 600 or Exynos Octa? we were facing this dilemma and the issue seems to be difficult to clarify though now seems clear that the versions of the Galaxy S4 will be two: one with the Qualcomm processor and a processor with Samsung.

Several screen shots came out of SamMobile that "confirm" Smart Pause and Smart Scroll capabilities for the S IV. However, quite a few are suspicious about the screen shots with the way the items were written. For all we know, it could also be a poster with the S IV display screen used as a background. Some really observant individuals even noticed that some of the items had period (.), while some did not.


With only a week to go before S IV's formal launch, a lot has been coming out about the phone that needs careful judgment to ensure that the information is true. With all the gossip-mongers in the mobile industry, one can have a totally different set of information and believe them to be true-even if they are not.


The Galaxy S IV is indeed built with lots of refreshing and ground-breaking features such as those that allow the device to sense the movement of the user's eyes to Pause and/or Scroll. Really cool, but it will be way cooler if information will come directly from Samsung. Eight days left!

Samsung's Mobile US Twitter account has posted this picture showing what appears to be a smartphone.  Yes, you have guessed, it's the Galaxy S IV that will be announced this Thursday.


It looks almost exactly the same round design as the leaked photos we saw yesterday.  But what we do miss is the speaker, camera and of course the level sensors. 


The Galaxy S4 is most likely to have the Smart Scroll feature that lets the phone sense a user's eye movements to scroll up and down. This, along with the Smart Pause was reported on the NY Times more or less a week ago, which somehow makes it a bit credible. It will feature an Exynos Octa made by Samsung in place of the previously and widely-rumored Snapdragon chipset. A future upgrade to Snapdragon is also possible. It may also have a plastic (polycarbonate) build, which is being panned by some supporters who are expecting an aluminum exterior. These are only some of the more credible features that the S4 will and may have.

We were wrong when we reported about Samsung Galaxy S IV will comes with Wireless charging, but not to worry, it should be fairly easy to add the functionality by swapping back plates and slapping the device on a wireless charging pad.


Pictures above show the back cover replacement straight out of China. You then place the device with its new cover on the charging pad for the wireless charging to happen. The charging pad itself has to be wired up as expected.


See a video below regarding to Wireless Charging.

Just days after announcing the Galaxy S5, popular review site CNET has taken a closer look at the Galaxy S5 software discovering various other features the company was quiet about.


Following are just few of the hidden features:


Toolbox


  • If you explore the Settings menu or the quick access settings in the notifications pulldown, you'll notice a quiet little option called Toolbox. Toggle it on and a white dot appears, inscribed with an ellipsis. Tap this and it will expand to reveal shortcuts to popular tools like the camera, voice recorder, browser, calculator, and the notes app -- but you can swap these for other apps.


New camera settings


  • There are a ton of new camera options, from the Selective Focus we heard about to some lesser-known features, such as a special treatment for action shots and the ability to easily secure photos with Samsung Knox.

Quick connect


  • Quick Connect is an easy press from the notifications shade, and replaces a bunch of confusing individual apps that connected to your computer and your other devices through a number of channels.
