Sprint is the first major U.S. provider to announce an exact release date for the Samsung Galaxy Note II . The phone will be available from October 25, in two colors: white and metallic gray. Sprint is asking 299.99 dollars for it (of course, in the contract).
As we all know, the Note II HD screen has a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED, LTE connectivity, S Pen, quad-core processor (Exynos) of 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 1.9 MP front camera and a rear camera 8 megapixel.
Unlike the LG Optimus G – another high-end, that will soon Sprint (November 11 to be exact), the Samsung Galaxy Note II runs Android 1.4 Jelly Bean from day one.
As reported last month, is preparing MetroPCS officially launching the Samsung Galaxy S III in the United States. Currently, the company has confirmed that the phone will be available in select stores this weekend, and in all stores (and online) starting next October 22.
MetroPCS Galaxy S III will sell for $ 499 plus tax – no contract required. LTE smartphone features include: HD Super AMOLED screen 4.8-inch, dual-core processor 1.5 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 MP front camera.
The Samsung Galaxy S III launch run for MetroPCS Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be available in the coming months (not just for the MetroPCS version, but for all variants S III already being sold in the U.S. – Verizon, AT & T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular).
In late July, Samsung proudly announced that it had sold more than 10 million Galaxy S III Smartphones worldwide. Now, two months later, the company announced that the number of units sold has reached 20 million – in 100 days since the launch of the phone .
This confirms the fact that the S III is the Samsung Smartphone most successful to date.
Sales remain strong in the coming months, especially by the recent introduction of four color versions. Of course, the new Apple iPhone 5 (which is expected to be announced next week, on September 12) will generate a negative impact on the business of Samsung, but not much. 30 million Galaxy S III sold in late 2012 is an achievable goal.
In case you’re not aware, the Galaxy S III is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean was almost ready.
The HTC One X + is a new terminal that has been making a lot of noise in recent weeks and although it has not been officially announced, and there is enough information about what you see when you arrive as the successor to the current model.
Last month, appeared in a performance test (benchmark), but now a Twitter user leaked what he claims as will be the official specifications. The information has not yet been confirmed, and I sincerely doubt it happens, but it serves to get an idea of what is coming.
Apparently have a NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor, but the chip will reach a speed of 1.6 GHz frequency along the accompanying four cores. Like the current model, comes with 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB ROM and an 1800mAh battery. In filtration through Twitter adds that come with Android 4.1.1, Jelly Bean and Sense 4.5.
Unfortunately, no further details are known to paw timely HTC has an event scheduled for September 19 and possibly witness the official announcement along with other terminals with Windows Phone 8.
The project in question is called Open Web and roughly device intended to provide a new mobile phone platform based on HTML5 which will use new mobile devices.
What does this mean? Well as you know those that ye be something stuck in computer science, web development is somewhat limited in the field of smartphones due to the potential of the language used then to all the fuss now because of the HTML5 language as this promises to break these barriers / constraints and things get really useful and impressive.
If you look back about 5 years you will see that for any type of service (messaging, chat, music …) used to install software on your computer. A software service, if it was an outrage and that’s when all these services began to implement dynamic web pages easily accessible by a single software, a browser.
In essence they want to do is similar, seek to develop a new architecture that reside entirely Phone on the web where everyone will have access to application interfaces. Smartphone Utilities such as our call, send a message or play could be developed as applications in HTML5 and settle again in behold of 20 applications installations only one browser.
Mozilla phone and operating system being developed HTML5 for a hardware platform based on a chipset from Qualcomm. The three companies will collaborate to deliver a prototype feature-rich platform that will enable smartphone capabilities at a price of basic functional phone.

It has been known that users of the Orange company would be sending your phone number without knowing all the sites they visit while using their mobile terminal to surf the net. A case is not isolated, and that apparently already found and believed solved in August 2010. The alarm bells have returned to British O2 users who have indicated that this problem keeps happening.
Although Orange has already recognized the mistake and is looking to reform What does this error? How do you know us? I explicates.El the problem fundamentally is that if we surf the Internet with your terminal using the Orange network operator, with requests that are made to the website where we will see you included our phone number and other information.
In what is called header data, which typically provides information to the target page and control information between the client and server, as the response status of the server, cookies, content type you are sending / receiving and other data that are useful for developers and administrators. Also statistical data such as what browser we are using, where we are or the operating system we use.
How do I know if I’m going through?
Apparently the problem is found in many mobile phone models, although it seems that the only one who does not have this problem is still the iPhone. It was not immediately known but much more data will explain how to know if this is happening in your terminal.
For that we need to see the headers that your browser sends to the server of the web page where we sail. This page provides all the information your browser sends headers. We have to establish specifically in the field called x-up-calling-line-id that is where in theory you should now see the phone number of your terminal.
As you might expect such a high-end memory, your connection type is USB 3.0 with speeds up to 225 Mbps 135 Mbps read and write. In the case of use with a USB 2.0 port speed drops dramatically to just 30 Mbps
To protect the coveted memory, the metallic outer shell is coated with rubber for extra protection. Their size is somewhat bulkier than you are accustomed to this type of memory but still portable.
With respect to its launch, Kingston says that they are about to go out and each memory prices will be $ 193 (about 130 euros) for the memory of 64 GB, $ 377 (250 euros) in the if the memory of 128 GB and the price of the 256 GB version has not yet been announced although it expected a price around 350 euros.
BlackBerry’s Torch 9860 and Torch 9810 are two very similar phones – the largest difference being in the aesthetics of the devices. The 9860 offers users a slide down QWERTY keyboard, whereas the 9810 is a fully touch screen device and doesn’t have a QWERTY – a step away from RIM’s usual style.
Both phones are attractive devices and both bear a similarity to the first Torch, which in itself is not a very bad thing. The 9860 is very similar to the candy bar shape touch screen Android phones that are extremely popular at the moment. It is a slim enough phone with a width of 11.5mm. The 9810 is a thicker device due to the keyboard – 14.5mm – and it leaves a bulge in your pocket. It also weighs nearly 30g more than the 9810 and is 162g.
Both phones have a Snapdragon 1.2GHz single core processor and 768MB of RAM, meaning they are quite nippy, though not blisteringly fast. Both phones are also able to hold a 32GB SD card, meaning they have plenty of room for your media. The mobile phone comparison shows that the 9860’s larger screen is far better for watching footage on as it has a 3.7in screen as opposed to the 3.2in of the 9810.
The two phone’s have the same new liquid display screen, which is a huge improvement on the BlackBerry’s older Torch screen and feels quite good to touch. Both phones have a 640×480 resolution, which is average at best to be honest, but is okay considering the not so large screen size.
The two Torch phones have the new BlackBerry OS7, which is quite good, though doesn’t stand up to the excellence of Android 2.3 and iOS 5, which both leave it behind in terms of functionality and user friendliness. RIM has loaded the two devices with the usual load of BlackBerry applications and this is a positive in terms of operating system.
The two BlackBerrys have 5mp cameras that are capable of shooting at 720p and though lacking in pixels, they make up for it with excellent autofocus. This ensures that amateur photographers can take the optimum quality of pictures with the phones and is a plus.
Overall, the two BlackBerrys are average devices and probably don’t honestly compete with the top Android phones. They however offer the BlackBerry experience in a hugely improved fashion and will be popular with fans who want something a little different.
