Samsung launches new apps for the Galaxy Note S-Pen


Samsung today announces the launch of ‘S Choice’, a new category of applications designed for the Galaxy Note’s S Pen which will be available to customers from Samsung Apps. In addition, the Galaxy Note itself will also now be available, earlier than previously announced, for customers to buy in the UK from Thursday 3rd November.
The S Pen, the Galaxy Note’s advanced pen-input technology, works with the full touch screen of the Galaxy Note to ensure owners can easily create and consume more content whilst on the go and enjoy a unique user-interface. New applications already available from ‘S Choice’ include Soonr, OmniSketch, Zen Brush, ComicBook!, and iAnnotate PDF.
The Galaxy Note removes the need to carry or switch between multiple devices by combining the benefits of a notebook with the portability of a smartphone, creating a whole new on-the-go user experience. Featuring the world’s first and largest 5.3″ HD Super AMOLED display, the highest quality display available on any phone, the Galaxy Note offers customers an immersive and best in class viewing experience while they are out and about.

Nokia Lumia 800 hands on video featuring Nokia Drive


I got hold of the new Nokia Lumia 800 earlier today and what an absolutely  beautiful phone it is. In the following video I show you briefly around the device and take a quick look at Nokia Drive which is the built in satellite navigation software that will come pre-installed on the device. Nokia Drive could well be the important unique selling point when it comes to Windows Phones. None of the other manufactures have built in voice guided navigation software , so Nokia Drive could well be one of the key features in driving sales of the new devices upwards.

I was suitably impressed and considering it is free I can potentially see me using a Nokia phone again in the future. It has been a while.

Hands on with the Nokia Lumia 710 featuring Nokia Music

Lumia 710

Whilst at Nokia World today I got to meet a nice chap called Paul who was demonstrating the Nokia Lumia 710 so I got him to show me a few of the key features with the new Windows Phone Mango device.

Nokia Music is a fantastic new service from the Finnish company and one that the public will absolutely love, and it’s free! As you will see in the video it is not just a case of streaming music as the Lumia 710 and 800 will also cache the music meaning you don’t have to be online to listen to the tracks. Perfect for travelling by plane for example.

The Nokia Lumia 710 also has a range of changeable back covers meaning you can customize the device to suit your mood. A hit with the younger generation I would imagine.

The BlackBerry P9981 designed by Porsche – Video


Remember recently when we mentioned the weird looking BlackBerry that had hit the interwebs? Well we told you last week that the device was in fact a Porsche designed special addition which is essentially a Bold 9900.

The device has officially been launched in Dubai and TBreak Technology have had some hands on time.

If you can afford to drive a Porsche you can probably afford the BlackBerry P9981 as it will set you back in the region of 2000 dollars!

I think it still looks blooming ugly!
