Blaq demo video

Blaq Timeline

If you saw my Blaq review yesterday you would have seen how beautiful the user interface is. To give you a further insight I have recorded a brief demo video to show the main (and coolest) features of the application.

Have you downloaded Blaq yet? What do you think? Please let us know over in the forum.

Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5801 Unboxing Video

samsung-galaxy-3-I5801-1

The Samsung Galaxy Apollo i5801 is one of those devices that comes with pretty good specs and is extremely good value for money. At under £150 on PAYG you get Android 2.1 (upgradeable to 2.2), 3G, Wi-Fi, A-GPS and a 3.5mm headphone jack just for starters.

Sold solely on Orange here in the UK you also get the added bonus of Orange maps to take care of your sat nav needs.

If you are looking for a pocketable, stylish, cost effective Android phone then this one could be right up your street.

Check out the unboxing video below and the review will be online in the next week or so.

Samsung hoist their Windows Phone 7 flag

samwp71 After recently announcing that Android would be their primary mobile operating system, leaked shots of the GT-i8700 show Samsung isn’t quite ready to commit.  These shots leaked to Gizmodo show a Galaxy S sized device with a generous screen, which to my eyes has that Super OLED depth of contrast.  So while WP7 may not be Samsung’s OS of choice, it’s certainly not giving it a technological stillbirth. 

We know that Redmond has specified WP7 devices to be 1 GHz minimum and from the shots we can make out the device contains an LED flash and likely 8GB of storage, although it’s not clear if that is all onboard or bolstered by SD card.  There also appears several switches on the side of the device, one looking suspiciously akin to a + & – rocker and one the opposite side possibly one for locking and another for photographs.  While it may be the Galaxy family’s WP7 counterpart, it doesn’t look as slim as the flagship S, possibly down to a larger battery, and therefore it may run on a more power hungry CPU than the Hummingbird powering the Galaxy series, or alternatively it may simply have a discreet GPU for the Xbox Live games.
