BBM7 came out of beta today and although it brings a few new things to the BlackBerry table, such as some new emoticons it is BBM Voice Chat that is the real big feature.
Voice Chat works over WiFi and allows you to talk to your BBM buddies wherever they are in the world at no charge. I’ve been using it for some weeks now and it works like a dream.
Whist on a voice chat you are still free to do other tasks on your BlackBerry due to multitasking. Where it comes in handy though is you can seamlessly send text and picture messages to the contact while still on the voice call.
It isn’t quite Skype but it the next best thing if you ask me. Another fine feature from RIM keeping us BlackBerry addicts happy.
You can check out a demo video blow:
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini is clearly the little brother of the popular Galaxy S3 and while the specs and size are not as great, that is because it is aimed at a different style of consumer. Not everyone wants the biggest and best smartphone and cost is always a factor, so the SGS3 Mini slots nicely into the mid range selection of smartphones on the market.
It pretty much gives us the same experience as on its bigger brother but just with a smaller form factor. The 4 inch Super AMOLED display is glorious and we still get some decent power with the 1GHz dual-core processor. Running Android Jelly Bean straight out the box is another bonus.
Due to its size, the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini fits perfectly in the hand and will give consumers an easier one handed experience for sure.
