U.S. court denies Apple's request to block sales of Samsung Galaxy devices

“It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed,” U.S. judge wrote in a decision that came out last Friday, December 2, denying Apple’s appeal for a preliminary injunction against Samsung and from stopping it from selling Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

The two companies have been battling it out in court since April, when Apple Inc filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung for ‘slavishly’ copying and using a number of technologies off its iPad and iPhone.

Smartphone, Hidden Inside ASUS PadFone Tablet

Written on May 31, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

The Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone plugs into a laptop-like companion, consisting of a keyboard and a screen. This is a very novel idea that gives gadget lovers the convenience.

Hiding a smartphone inside a tablet can make you enjoy the best of both worlds, just like what ASUS did it with its PadFone, Nuzzling its new Android smartphone into a docking bay at the back of the large-screened tablet, it has a small door that closes behind it, secretly storing the phone.

According to its Facebook page, ASUS has been plugging its tagline: “Break the Rules: Pad or Phone,” and the company is doing it by releasing the Motorola Atrix’s versatility to a tablet form. There even is a small hole for the Gamin ASUS-like smartphone’s camera to peep out.

ASUS and Motorola are on the right track, as those who carry around a bag full of gadgets everyday would like to avoid repetition of efforts. The system ASUS has created uses what’s probably a dual-core processor inside the smartphone that can run a tablet. Hence, there’s just one unit that handles both tablet and smartphone processing, and of course, just one cellphone bill to pay.

"Anyone privy to the release of the iPhone is going to hold on to their current device as long as they possibly can, all but Scotch taping their devices together so that they can crawl over the finish line and into the loving arms of a shiny new iPhone.

Written on October 12, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

Palm Pre 2's predecessor, the Palm Pre, is not quite a success. Good thing is Palm Pre 2 is different. Why? Because According to SFR, this phone can compete with iPhone and Android. Let's see if it really does reach the standard.

French phone carrier SFR brought new surperises yesterday. Palm Pre 2 had been lurking in the Internet with rumored specifications and images. SFR referred actually to these rumors as “flatter” and “more refined” than the original.

Palm Pre 2 is a follow up to last year’s Palm Pre who happens to be a flop. The Pre 2 carries a 1 GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM. Boosting over the  600 MHz processor and 256 MB of RAM of its predecessor. Plus, more competitive to the iPhone market and the Droid 2. Palm Pre 2 will carry WebOS 2.0.

That’s what we know about the specs. Also, SFR says that Pre 2 will push notifications on Facebook such as wall posts and social media updates.

Looks like Palm has both the guts and power now.

Credible Sources Speculate about Verizon iPhone

Written on October 11, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

We've talked in a previous article that Verizon is most probably carrying iPhone by next year. We reported about chipsets and all. And now New York Times printed some more juicy news.

A source that claims to be in direct contact with Apple has something to reveal. According to the source, Apple is into adapting iPhone 4 to work with Verizon’s wireless network. It also says Verizon customers can access iPhone early next year. The New York Times also cited the source making it more credible. About two months ago, we’ve written an article about the chip sets for the Verizon iPhone that should arrive December. Even Bloomberg reported a January launch.

Some analysts had a prediction about the rumored five-year exclusivity deal between Apple and AT&T, and Verizon’s 4G technology will hold Verizon iPhone until 2012.

Let’s see if these sources are true to their words.

Windows Phone 7: To Set Foot in Europe on October 21st?

Written on September 27, 2010 by B Waldorf

Comments Off

The rumors about Microsoft Phone 7 are giving us headaches, but the sight of this marvelous gadget is somewhat a relief.

Rumor has it. The much awaited Windows Phone 7 will set foot on Europe on October 21. This piece of information was tipped offby the sources close to Microsoft.

While innocent until proven guilty, it’s something that makes people excited. Reports had concluded that the definite time of launch is the month of October, and just recently Microsoft announced that they are ready. An initial report from a Spanish website El Economista said that the phones are for release in Spain on the 21st. But there is another report that UK, France, Germany and Italy are also on the list. But nothing was said about the US release.

In addtion, there is also a report that says Microsoft will boast the new phone at a New York City event this October 11. Just then Microsoft will have partnership with a popular London-based radio station to promote the phone in UK.

Are these rumors true? Only time will time.
