White Galaxy II In UK-White have a special meaning for some people. In my country -Indonesia- white is a part of color in our flag that symbolizes purity. Some people also think white has a special meaning and they loved him.

Samsung saw this opportunity by launching the White Galaxy S II in the UK. White Galaxy S II will be available about mid August in the UK. Certainty refers to the article on the Clove’s website, a UK wireless retailer.

The price of White Glaxy S II is not yet known. If we look at the Galaxy II classic that has a price about $775, then the White Galaxy S II slightly more expensive about $30. Spec of White Galaxy S II with the Galaxy S II Classic is absolutely same, but why the price offered was different? Is it because of the influence of white color?

Angry Birds Considered Violating Patents

Angry Birds Considered Violating Patents
So far the Angry Birds is a very popular game. Have you know that the Finnish game being stuck with a problem regarding violating patents claimed by the game company from Texas about the method for purchasing a new level in the application.

Types of purchases the new level is also applied to the games from Europe and these problems have prevented developers to launch their applications.

Start Up Smart, a website for new business and entrepreneurship said.
"The US patent system allows software implementations of ideas to be patented, which differs significantly from the European Union, although the European Parliament has been considering aligning patent rights with the US"

"The growth of lawsuits in the US by so-called "patent trolls" – which simply demand payments after assessing intellectual property rights – poses a major threat to the burgeoning mobile app market."

I personally think patents like this to curb the birth of new innovations from the company that filed for a patent. How you think about it?

Beyond Talk Plans and Motorola Triumph

Beyond Data Plans and Motorola Triumph
Best Buy has been offering Motorola Triumph for Virgin Mobile since a few weeks ago. With the launch of the Motorola Triumph, Virgin Mobile also introduced the new Virgin Mobile's data plans. This non-contract plans ranging from $35 to $55 which named new Beyond Talk Plans, and Motorola Triumph has became the first mobile phone launched by Virgin Mobile to introduce Beyond Talk Plans.

Tariff changes were also introduced along with the new Beyond Talk Plans.
Unlimited Data/Text with 300 minutes (anytime minutes) $25 – increase to $35
Unlimited Data/Text with 1200 minutes $40 (anytime minutes) – increase to $45
Unlimited everything $60 will drop to only $55

$55 unlimited everything plans is a great buy, but in October Virgin Mobile plans to add data caps to this unlimited plan. It means when you’ve used over than 2.5GB of data, your speed will be reduced like a turtle when it walks.

Motorola Triumph has a HDMI out, 1GHz CPU, 5MP rear-facing camera, 4.1-inch display, and front-facing VGA camera. So is the right decision if you choose to use a Motorola Triumph and subscribe to Unlimited Everything (but) before your calendar shows October.

HTC Desire Update Fixs WiFi Issue

HTC Desire Update Fixs WiFi Issue

After discussing the security update for Samsung Focus v1.4 on the previous post, now thecybergal will discuss update for HTC Desire which fixs WiFi issue. This update is a stock update 2.50.405.2 which was distributed through the air.

Several members at xda developers forum complaining about some problems after the update like batteries become depleted rapidly and HTC's location (GPS) does not work any more. We hope that users of Desire HD that have been getting updates 2.50.405.2 to share some information on the advantages or disadvantages about your update. Thank...

Security Update for Samsung Focus v1.4

Security update for Samsung Focus v1.4 is now being sent, after windowsteam working hard to speed up the schedule updates to the mobile phone. You need to connect your Samsung Focus v1.4 to the PC and go ahead to Settings and "check for update" to get the update.

This update does not just give a security fix (7392) but also gives NoDo update (7390). Below are excerpts from windowsteamblog regarding security update for Samsung Focus v1.4.

A few months back I explained that you may occasionally receive a notification of a hardware-specific update for your particular Windows Phone. These updates improve things like battery life, call clarity and touch responsiveness - to name a few examples. These updates are designed to make specific improvements. Not every phone around the world needs the same package of improvements. In some cases no update at all is needed. I wanted to remind you of this because some of you will start to see these types of updates soon, and I wanted you to have a little insight into what is included. It’s all part of keeping your Windows Phone in tip-top shape.

- Eric Hautala

From the quote above, not every phone in the world will require the same package for improvement. But the packages will be adjusted to the needs of each phone. So for phone owners who have not received updates schedule, we hope to be patient.

Motorola Dinara, the Next Product After Droid Bionic

Motorola Dinara, the Next Product After Droid Bionic
After we discussed rumors about iPad 3, this time thecybergal will provide rumors again. This rumor comes from Motorola which reportedly will add one more Android device after Droid Bionic.

One such device is the Motorola Dinara, the next product after Droid Bionic. If Droid Bionic announced at CES can make a breakthrough by becoming the first dual-core mobile device for Verizon's LTE network, so the successor-Motorola Dinara-can also create a new breakthrough in mobile phone specification.

Before discussing about the specifications of the Motorola Dinara, let's briefly look at its codename. Dinara is actually the name of a mountain range. It seems that Motorola really liked the philosophy of the mountain because they often use the names of the mountain as a codename for their products (Atrix, Xoom, Etna, etc). Well if you do not care about the codename used by Motorola as you feel curious about the specifications, then the quote below is expected to be able to answer your curiosity.

TI Processor (presumably some dual-core OMAP4)
"HD" Screen (probably qHD, but maybe higher resolution)
13 MP rear and VGA front cameras
Thinner and lighter, bigger screen, but same size as Bionic
Internal (non-replaceable battery)

Thats glimpse of the discussion about Motorola Dinara, once again thecybergal conveys that spec above may be true, and may be wrong because this is just a rumor. We will provide the latest updates so the news can be a valid and reliable. Cheers...

High Resolution Display for iPad 3

High Resolution Display for iPad 3
Until now, rumor about the iPad 3 continues to grow, even recent reports say that the iPad 3 will use a 3D screen. Quoted from phonearena, the Cupertino’s mobile manufacturer is now being tested 9.7 inch LCD screen which made by Samsung and LG as a preparation for the iPad 3.

Another interesting news to be heard is the high resolution display of iPad 3. Some rumors have even told that the iPad 3 will use QXGA screen or about 2048 x 1536 pixels and clock in 264 ppi.

If you look at the companies that Apple elected to make 9.7 inch High Resolution Display for iPad 3-Samsung and LG-it seems not impossible if iPad 3 will actually use QXGA screen. This conclusion arises because when the Society for Information Display (SID) held in Los Angeles last May, Samsung is able to demonstrate an LCD screen that uses the "Retina-Display" technology.

This latest news confirms the previous posts that discussed the Retina Display that will be used by iPad 3. Will the hostility between Apple and Samsung about the legal issues can be eased with the cooperation of the two giant mobile phone manufacturers? Let's see how the continuation of the story.

Will BlackBerry PlayBook Still be Produced?

Will BlackBerry PlayBook Still be Produced?
A response came from the RIM about the question; will the BlackBerry PalyBook still be produced? The response from RIM is answering the statement of RBC Capital Markets Managing Director, Mike Abramsky who picked up the story of OTR Global about the cessation of production BlackBerry PlayBook Wi-Fi version.

Mike Abramsky concluded that the weak sales of BlackBerry PlayBook Wi-Fi are the cause of discontinuation of production of the BlackBerry Playbook Wi-Fi version. In addition, through the production stopping of the BlackBerry Playbook Wi-Fi, RIM will be able to focus in the development of their PlayBook 4G.

Through their twitter account, RIM considers that the conclusion of Mike Abramsky as Pure Fiction. As a rebuttal again, RIM said that BlackBerry PalayBook Wi-Fi still launched in new countries almost every week.

'My friend's been hacked' Feature Added by Hotmail

'My friend's been hacked' Feature Added by Hotmail
There are a lot of email facilities offered by some providers, such as gmail from Google, yahoo!mail from Yahoo, and Hotmail from Microsoft. These emails are divided into free email (usually for individuals) and paid email (normally used by corporate). But, whatever the choice, either free or paid, should both provide security for its users.

Associated with security, then the Hotmail add new features, "My friend’s been hacked". The new feature of Hotmail can filter out spam that comes from reliable sources. Now, when you have flooded by email from your friend and find that the emails from your friends is not as usual, you can select "My friend's been hacked" from the "Mark as" menu.

I think this person was hacked
When you move a letter into Junk, you can click a box that reads: "I think this person was hacked". What have you did before is going to kick spammers and your friends are going through a cleaning process called "recovery account flow" in the next time when they try to log in. In my humble opinion, tagging messages with "I think this person was hacked" will hurt our friends because we might be doing the marking is only meant for a joke, but our friends still have to go through the process "recovery accounts flow" that helps them take back control of the account.
So, do you agree with my humble opinion about the new feature "My friend’s been hacked” from the Hotmail, especially a checkbox named "I think this person was hacked"? Give me your feedback...
