Last week, Samsung hosted a series of launch parties across Canada to celebrate the launch of the much anticipated, Galaxy SIII. I’ve been using the phone for over a month now and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. In fact, I would go so far as to say I don’t miss my iPhone at all (sorry, apple lovers…I’m just sayin’).
Isn’t technology wonderful? New smartphones, new tablets, new computers – With so many new and amazing gadgets on the market, it’s hard to pick just one of everything. Sometimes, though, a device comes along that just stands out from the rest - Case in point? The Samsung Galaxy S III.
The Galaxy S III is packed with everything you could possibly want in a smartphone. With a 4.8 inch high definition screen, Android’s 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and a speedy 1.5GHz dual-core processor, the Galaxy S III is full of new and cool features that make it one of the most user-friendly phones on the market.
There are many pools of thought on what constitutes the perfect size for a mobile device. There are some of us who are still holding onto our flip phones, loving just the basics in a device. Then there are those of us who are looking to harness the Internet and fit it easily into our front pocket with the latest Smartphone, and last but not least, those of us who are of the school of thought that bigger is always better!
This week, my hat is off to Samsung for creating a new mobile experience with the Galaxy S III. The new smartphone has been designed with one person in mind, the end user. Samsung has created a device that is not only beautiful and powerful, but incredibly user friendly.
I’m happy to pass along a positive review to another addition of the Samsung family of Smartphones. The newBell Samsung Galaxy SII has all the bells and whistles we have come to expect from a Smartphone, with the added benefit of a thinner design and a faster processor.
Samsung’s latest smartphone is pulling out all the stops when it comes to being different. Over the past two years, the usage of smartphones has skyrocketed and tablets are no longer a fad. Instead, both are becoming integral parts of today’s digital lifestyle. Whether it’s managing your daily finances with Mint.com or sharing life’s precious moments with Instragram’s photo sharing and editor app, the hardware that makes it all possible is more important than ever.
A new year is almost here, and as we prepare to say goodbye to 2011 many of us take some time to reminisce about the past year. Being the geek that I am, I always enjoy taking a moment to look back on the advances in technology...
In 2011 we saw an increase in 3D entertainment, both at the movies and in homes with 3D TV. More and more of us are putting on our funny looking glasses and enjoying having the story come to life outside of a rectangular screen.
After a month of testing out the new Samsung Galaxy SII I have to say I’m nothing but impressed. Samsung describes their device in three simple words, “vivid, fast, slim”. With those three words in mind I set out to see if the product could live up to its claims and boy did it ever.
Some of the most common questions people ask before buying a smart phone are “Which one should I get?”, “How are they different?”, and “Is there one that’s better than the others?”. The short is answer is “yes” they are all different, but it’s less about which one is the best and more about which one is right for you. Your decision to buy a smartphone can be divided into two categories: Hardware features and software features, or in other words, the features of the operating system (OS) that it runs on. For today, we’ll just talk about the OS differences.
Year after year one of the most popular gifts to give (and best to receive) is a mobile device. This holiday season the latest Smartphone - the Samsung Google Galaxy Nexus, is decking out the halls. The Google Galaxy Nexus runs on the Android platform, and is by far the brightest and best Smartphone developed by Google.
This is exactly what everyone wants to be doing! Why should your content only be in once place? You should be able to watch it where ever you want whenever you want! However, moving your data between devices can be tricky, especially if they are not all made by the same manufacturer. If you happen to have all Apple Products (iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple TV) no problem! You’re first step should be to upgrade to iOS 5.0 and turn on iCloud on all your mobile devices. Then you’ll want to turn on home sharing on all of your devices on your network and barring any unforeseen problems you’re good to share. If you download something for your phone (say the latest song from your favorite artist) it will show up on your iPad and computer. And if you want to watch it on your TV you can push it there using AirPlay and your AppleTV.
The latest version of Samsung Galaxy S II is now on the marketing in Canada. I recently had the opportunity to demo the X version offered through Telus. While I’ve been an avid advocate for Apple’s iPhone over the past several years, I have to admit Samsung has done a bang-up job on this smart phone. So well, in fact, that I’m no longer using my iPhone and have switched full-time over to a Samsung Galaxy S smartphone.
Over the next few weeks, students from all sorts of educational institutions will be walking with heads held high, diploma in hand, ready to take on the next chapter in their lives. As much as I’m sure these twenty-something graduates are looking forward to hearing the cheers as their diplomas are placed in their hands one thing they're not looking forward to is a gold plated pen, or worse, the classic offer to pay for their diploma to be framed.
I just stumbled across an article that referred to Google Android-powered smart-phones as “mullet phones,” and thought it was pretty funny. Really, I think it’s funny anytime the word “mullet” is used to describe something.
This highly anticipated smartphone sports the latest Android platform - Gingerbread (Android 2.3). Nerds all over Canada have been waiting with bated breath for its release here since our neighbours to the south got theirs in January. Now that April has finally arrived, we too can enjoy all the benefits that it has to offer. Nerd or not, this mobile device will have you jumping for joy.
I recently subscribed to Optik TV by Telus and I got to say, it is one cool service and I was watching TV in a whole new experience. Optik TV also provides a web service that integrates their web app to sync with your home PVR. You can also use the app to schedule and manage your HD PVR recordings on your smartphone.
