Want To See The Next Version Of Android? A Bevy Of Ice Cream Sandwich Screenshots Leaks -

Oh, what’s that Google/Samsung? You’ve canceled next week’s Ice Cream Sandwich/Nexus Prime event? That’s cool. I mean, sure: pretty much all of the tech press has non-refundable plane tickets and hotel rooms already… but hey: at least we all get to work from San Diego for a few days now!
Regardless, most of what they would’ve announced is leaking out now anyway. The latest leak to spring up: a series of beautiful screenshots capturing Ice Cream Sandwich in full detail.
As you might’ve expected from the constant chatter that Ice Cream Sandwich would bring the overhauled look and feel of Honeycomb’s tablet interface to phones, Ice Cream Sandwich… looks like Honeycomb running on a smaller screen. And it looks crazy beautiful.
What do you think? Do you prefer the original, vanilla Android, or the new, Tron-tastic look of ICS?

Here’s Apple’s iPhone 4S Video Official Review

Here’s Apple’s iPhone 4S Video Official Review

4S Video

Can’t navigate around Apple’s site right now because their servers are melting? Still want to see the snazzy 5 minute video they made to introduce the iPhone 4S?
Don’t worry — Here It Is.

First Apple iPhone 4S camera samples surface, look stunning - news

04 October, 2011 
The Apple iPhone 4S might not have been the update everyone was expecting, but it certainly delivers well on the camera front. Not only is this the fastest camera around, but it also promises to do some of the most impressive photos you have seen.
As Tim Cook boldly claimed "To many customers this will be the best still camera they've ever owned and the best video camera they've ever owned.". Now to say such things for a camera that fits in a 9.3mm body is probably pushing it, but the 8 megapixel snapper with bright f/2.4 lens certainly sounds promising. Even more so, knowing that the iPhone 4 was one of the best 5 megapixel shooters around.
Still, Apple are ready to put their latest smartphone where its mouth is and has released a bunch of camera samples captured with the iPhone 4S on its website. We don't know how serious a photographic effort those shots took, but they certainly look stunning.

04 October, 2011 
Apple just unveiled the newest member of its iPhone lineup of smartphones. Dubbed the iPhone 4S, the latest offering by the Cupertino-based company is more of an incremental upgrade than a complete overhaul of the iPhone 4. Design and dimensions stay the same, but there's a notable increase in processing power.

The Apple iPhone 4S comes with the A5 chipset, which is the SoC that powered the iPad 2. It comes with a dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU and PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, which as we know is a pretty powerful combo.

BBM for Android should be available by 2012, get your thumbs ready

You read correctly, we heard rumblings of such peculiar goings on for a little while prior to this post, and this is just adding to the rumor mill.

gsmarena 001 BBM for Android should be available by 2012, get your thumbs ready 

Purportedly the iPhone 4S is to play as guinea pig for the iOS build of BlackBerry’s Messenger service and now we are hearing through the grapevine that Android users might get in on some BBM action too.
We can’t avoid stoking the fires of speculation here, but of course following tomorrow’s iPhone-centric announcement in Cupertino, our guesses today might be carrying a little more weight.
