Its been a week since HP announced its planning to get away from the computer business and is axing WebOS. I felt really sad when I heard this news since I’m a big fan of Palm, the original creators of WebOS. I think HP has no idea what they’re letting go and seems illogical to quit when they’ve spent so much effort already.
I still don’t know what HP is planning with WebOS, but something interesting happened this weekend and that was a firesale on the HP Touchpad. If you haven’t seen the Touchpad its a WebOS tablet with a beautiful 9.7 inch screen and comes with a browser that can run flash. Some compare the Touchpad as very similar to the Ipad minus a little speed and the collection of apps.
In the past two days the HP Touchpad has had a surge in sales and is the number 1 selling tablet in the market beating the Apple Ipad. Its currently trending top 10 in Google trends and is the most popular tablet in most online and offline retailers. What makes its rise was a simple change in price from $399 to $99 for the 16GB model. Continue reading
I love photography and consider it my greatest temptation to getting another phone other than a Blackberry.
Mobile phone photography is a big market and currently has only one big player. You have the market leader Apple pushing the boundaries on how good a camera phone should be.
By making the IPhone’s camera a major factor on its success it has captured a huge number of fans. But It also helps that Apple has tons of app developers ready to take advantage to new technology.
Going back to the Blackberry things has been quiet for a few months for any photo related app. But lately things are starting to change. I’m happy to finally say the Blackberry now has a great photo filter app. Continue reading
After waiting ages for Facebook to include Chat inside their Blackberry App, today’s update finally gave that features to us. Today’s update also came with another pleasant surprise like a new user interface. The new user interface includes a new navigation grid where you can access all the features available to the app.
I’ve been using Facebook a lot lately after the Skype integration. Its probably the smartest thing Facebook has done, by getting the best technology for making video and voice calls. Being able to chat with your contacts is one of Facebook’s best feature and having that in your Blackberry makes the Facebook a complete mobile app.

In the past few months RIM has gotten a lot of negative press online and offline. Most of it started when RIM announced their Quarterly earnings which was something to be expected when a company’s making major transitions.
Most of the negative press against RIM centered mostly from a North American perspective. But in my travels to Asia I saw a whole new outlook on how people see Blackberry Phones and the company that makes it.
The developers of Opera have finally come out with an update to resolve all the problems with old Opera 5 fixing problems with scrolling and missing text. They also made huge improvements in webpage loading time.
They have also made some improvements in the user interface making bookmarking easier. They even improved the overall stability of the browser making it more snappier. Opera Mini has always been a great browser but the old question still comes up on why I still have Opera mini on my phone.
The answer is very simple I love using the webkit browser on my Torch but its still not perfect, I often get a low memory error when I view websites with large pictures or graphics which really annoys any user.
Opera Mini 6 solves all of these memory problems and even loads pages faster than my phones built in browser.
