Tizen to replace Bada for Samsung?

Tizen-logo-600

The word on the street is that Samsung are going to replace their mid range devices with the Tizen OS and not Bada as they currently do.

What on earth is Tizen you may ask. Well, to cut a long story short Tizen is an open source Linux based operating system integrating MeeGo, the Nokia rejected OS.

Samsung have said that the current Bada devices, which have been around since 2010, will be backwards compatible with Tizen and they will produce at least two new Tizen handsets this year.

Let’s see if they show anything off at MWC next month.

BlackBerry Curve 9380 review

BlackBerry Curve 9380 reviewThe Curve brand has been hugely successful for RIM, especially the 8520 mega-hit; these were the first BlackBerries that appealed to the masses on a budget, allowing the everyman a taste of BBM and the famed BlackBerry keyboard. Alongside the Curve 9360, this is RIM’s take on a modern budget smartphone. As you’ve probably noticed, the 9380 doesn’t have a keyboard, perhaps the biggest BlackBerry selling point. That doesn’t spell doom for RIM though, as full touch phones are obviously the way the market is heading. RIM are no strangers to full touch phones, and the ones preceding, such as the Storm, haven’t been popular to say the least.

But now with the arrival of BlackBerry OS 7 and its user friendly tweaks on this budget touchscreen phone with the Curve branding behind it, could the Curve 9380 be the first touchscreen-only hit for RIM? Check out the full review for the verdict!
