Lately, I’ve been thinking of buying a smartphone. Not for the reason that it’s a trend or fashion nowadays, but for the mere fact that it has become a necessity. Having to work in a fast-paced environment, I found it convenient to have one of these cheap cell phones. I can simply apply my knowledge and skills using a smartphone. Experimenting on it to expand my horizon in the realm of technology and networking. And most of all, to easily manipulate information to use in my work as fast as I can, in just a click away.
I’m not a fan of nokia phones, neither a Blackberry nor a Mac iphone. I’m just interested of getting myself a Samsung Galaxy SIII.
Samsung Galaxy S3 is one of the most infamous Samsung mobile phone. The said device was released early last year, yet it still continues to shimmer in the world of mobile technology.
Below are some of the admirable properties of my preferred cheap phone:
- The Samsung Galaxy S3 features a 4.8-inch display and a 720 x 1280 pixels resolutions that allows you to enjoy great quality movies and images. It also uses a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen technology.
- This styish cheap cell phone comes with ICS version operating system and soon upgraded into Jelly bean software. Through this, users can easily access numerous applications.
- This cheap cell phone’s quad core 1.4 GHz and Cortex A-9 along with chipset of Exynos processor with 1GB RAM allows you to process your work with ease and great speed.
- My bet also boasts with power camera that comes with an 8MP rear side snapping tool and a 1.9MP front camera.
- Also, face zooming, burst mode, geo tagging, touch focus and many more add spice to this cheap smartphone.
Hopefully by next month I’ll be able to buy myself a smartphone. Unless otherwise my colleague will convince me to buy another cheap cell phone brand, then that’s the only time I would consider. But as of this moment, my heart only belongs to Samsung Galaxy SIII.
It seems that we are getting all kinds of leaked specs before tomorrow’s Press Conference with HTC, at the Mobile World Congress, (Like The HTC Legend.) I have to say this phone looks a lot like the Nexus One. The HTC Bravo/Desire is rumored to launch for Verizon, But will it be sold thru the new Google Store? I don’t think so where it has HTC Sense and not Vanilla Android. But who knows they could surprise us.

Hey every one, have you been wanting to get your first Android phone? Or maybe you are looking for a newer upgrade with a little bit more of that Green Robot Punch? Well if you are interested in Verizon, you can now get the Motorola Droid for $109.99 threw the wonderful Amazon. This is a great deal for a real power house. It may not be as powerful as the Nexus One. But how can you go wrong with the great Droid, and with a price that can match. Or if you don’t need a keyboard or don’t like Motorola you can still get the Droid ERIS By HTC for $9.99 on Amazon.
Does any one plan on getting the Motorola Droid or Droid Eris? Im personally going to stay with Nexus One. Just cause well I just got it hahaha.
So you heard all the buzz (pun intended) about Google’s new social networking tool “BUZZ”?? Want to join the cool kids on the block and start “buzzin”?? Then you realize that you have Android 1.5 and you just can’t figure out how to get them buzzes a buzzin. Hold on to your britches and get ready to learn how, but first bear with us as we tell you how we found this out. (Written by PSiQo1)
My brother and I were watching the new Star Trek movie. We are Star Wars fans so why we were watching Star Trek don’t ask. My brother (PSiQo1) told me that we couldn’t use our Moto Cliq’s to BUZZ. I said “Bulls#!*” and showed him the BUZZ option in my browser. Only to find out he was right, it didn’t work. So I logged on my Google profile and noticed it had a bunch of old post from Google Latitude. Then suddenly “light bulb turns on”, maybe I could use Google Latitude to post on Buzz. At this point my brother said “Let’s test this s#!* out on my buzz since it’s already set-up” and posted a Latitude status update asking his buddy Brent from ALLDROID to reply if it posted as a BUZZ, and it did. Ok ok we drug you through the boring stuff for long enough. (Written by PSiQo2 and in part by PSiQo1)
How it works:
First set-up your Google Buzz on your computer (create profile, edit profile, etc…). Next go to your Latitude AND Buzz, request all the people you would like to follow (works best if they are all the same people). Now when you want to “buzz” just change your status through Latitude and all your followers will see them as “buzzes” and the Android 1.5 followers will see them in Latitude. Too good to be true? NO, IT REALLY IS THAT EASY!
We have no idea if this is intentional on Google’s end or not. All the documentation and reports point to NO though. So we decided to name this as our brainchild, LAT-BUZZ.
(Disclaimer: This has only been tested on 5 phones but does seem to work. Sometimes there is a delay but everything does appear to show up. Remember this is a work around and may have some faults. If this doesn’t work for you please report back here and leave a comment or maybe Google hates you and love us.)

Did you just get your fancy Nexus One? Are you with T-Mobile? If you are like me then right after you ordered it you called T-Mobile to put the Asurion Insurance to protect your device, and Asurion will protect you-or will they? It seems that they will give you Insurance but will not replace the Nexus One.
If you do damage or lose your Nexus One, Asurion will send you a T-Mobile MyTouch 3G… Hmmmm does that upset anyone else? This is just what T-Mobile told me when I called them. Still no information on why this is. So for now just keep that Nexus One close and dear to you..
Where you one of the many that’s dished out 300 bucks for a Droid Razr? How do you like the battery life? Yea we didn’t think that you were to happy. Well we might have something here to help you get around 12 hours of battery life. Still interested? If you are then good because thats just what we have for you today. Looks like XDA member royalbloodvi has put together a nice little tutorial on how to accomplish this. Check out what you have to do after the break.
