Barring Apple Inc., no other Android smart phone manufacturer has come close to the market reach of Samsung. With the Galaxy S2 been lauded with praise and appreciation by both gadget lovers and common users alike, Samsung has secured its place at the top notch in the market of smart phones. This of course led to the grand launch of Galaxy S3 at a special event rather than a MWC launch (which is a common practice). With such history of massive success, one cannot help but expect a lot from Samsung Galaxy S4.
There are several rumors amidst all the whispering regarding the release date of this much anticipated device. We are keeping our eyes and ears open to get the exact information about the release of this smart phone. Meanwhile, we dearly wish certain updates in features of the Galaxy series to be incorporated in S4. The recent teasers by the company are making us guess about the features.
Specs in Galaxy S4:
If the internet is to be trusted, there is a lot to look forward to when we think about the specs in Galaxy S4. An eight core innards will probably be split in to a group of two: A7 spec for handling things at a modest power whereas A15 chips which would be used when more power is consumed to run bigger applications or download heavy files.
Screen specifications in Galaxy S4:
Vibrant screen with visible pixels has been a critical feedback for screens of earlier phones in the Galaxy series. However, that does not take away the fact that the colors are highly vivid, the contrast is starking,and overall effect of the screen of these phones is quite pleasing and easy on the eyes. In fact, pixel density was increased (it went from 217 to 306) when Galaxy S3 was launched. Also, the screen size in Galaxy S3 was 4.8 inches (more than the 4.3 inches screen in the previous model).
Samsung is hinting that the screen in Galaxy S4 is going to be very flexible. But one cannot be to sure about this as it is just a rumor and looking at the delayed release date, it is safe to assume that flexible screen can be a feat in Samsung Galaxy S5 rather than S4.
The release date of Galaxy S4:
When? And how? These are the two questions pestering all the gadget geeks when they think about Galaxy S4. The 'how' part is speculated as: not at MWC 2013, might be at a separate launch event or at CES. There is a chance that the unveiling of this smart phone be held in May this year.
All the speculation, rumors, hype, expectations, and the anticipation are emphasizing on one fact: Galaxy S4 is going to get a grand welcome as soon as it is released and it also will be scrutinized for each of its features.

Why the battery drains when using Twitter and Facebook on BlackBerry mobile phones? Well, it is quite simple actually, it is because the internet connection. Twitter and Facebook are social network platforms and in order to launch them on your mobile phone, you need to have internet connection.
This can be done through Wi-Fi or an internet services from your carrier. But nevertheless, when browsing the internet and accessing web pages, the battery is drained faster, because you are not managing basic tasks, you are doing traffic over the internet and this will consume resources. Twitter and Facebook can’t be used unless access the internet. The more you stay on these social networks and the more tasks you do, such as load pages and pictures, post videos, write comments, send messages and so, the battery will drain faster.
You can take into account buying an extra battery to have close-by. When the one inside your phone drains completely and you are far from being home or at the office to charge it, you can grab the replacement battery and you can have your phone powered and working again. Batteries for BlackBerry phones are not expensive and you can find them easily for purchase. Just make sure you buy them from original retailers and shops with phone accessories, so you get the most out of the battery and it does not drain after just a couple of hours. The battery life inside your phone depends on the type of phone you have. In case you have a full-touch screen headset with GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, internet access and you use all these features on a regular day, the battery will not hold on for a long time. Take for instance Blackberry Torch 9800; it has a rated battery life of 5.5 hours in talk time and up to 17 days in stand-by. With moderate use, such as web browsing, video and music playback and e-mailing, the phone will last more than a day before you need to charge it again. This is because it is a touch screen and the features inside, plus the large display, bright and colorful, will consume lots of resources. In order to make sure your phone stays connected to the internet and you do have battery to be able to use the headset, you can buy some extra accessories that will help you charge your phone while you are away from a power supply. You can get a car charger in case you are a driver and you can plug your phone to the cigarette lighter and have it charged in a couple of moments. It is a very useful accessory and you will see how it can save the day and keep you mobile active. A battery charging pod is also very useful and it will hold your BlackBerry phone in place, but you have to get the power supply separately, it can be the travel charger or the vehicle power adapter.
Other things you can do to make sure the battery will hold for a little longer would be to make sure you turn off Wi-Fi after you are done using it. If you leave it on, it will just consume the battery for no point. Also, “kill” the running applications and don’t leave them sit there launched. You can do these and others to hold tight to the battery whenever you are spending too much time on Facebook and Twitter.Celexa

BlackBerry has a lot of applications available in the BlackBerry App World. You can download them easily using only your mobile phone, especially if you have a smartphone. But in case you have some new ideas and you want to write applications for BlackBerry, it requires a bit of work. In the end it can be rewarding, because you can get paid if the application is approved and it becomes popular and downloaded.
You can write applications for BlackBerry on any platform that allows Java, which is actually any platform you can think about. Some of the apps you see online are created by users, because there are many who know programming and who have great ideas of useful applications. With millions of BlackBerry users around the world and with the wide range of carriers, you can get your hands on a decent sum of money. So let’s see exactly what can you do to create applications.
You need some items before you get started, such as a computer, perhaps some Java skills can be very useful and you need $200 if you want to submit the application. In case you have great ideas but you don’t know much about Java programming, you should download yourself some tutorials. You can start with the basic guidance, because this will help you go through BlackBerry tutorials better. You can look online for the official Sun Java tutorials and you can find what you need. From the Sun’s website as well you need to download Java Development Kit version 1.6. This software will allow you to compile and run Java programs. IDE stands for Integrated Development Environment and this makes Java programming very easy. You can either download it separately, but BlackBerry offers a plug-in that works with Eclipse directly. This is very convenient and you can download the BlackBerry web development for Eclipse, with it included. If you check with BlackBerry, you can see there is a very useful tutorial provided to see how to get the first application going. Look carefully at the tutorial and try to see the basic idea of what is going on, instead of just copying it into Eclipse. It is simple indeed, but it teaches you the important concepts that you will surely need for your application. Now it is time to start developing your own application. On BlackBerry’s website you have the developer’s page and there are a lot of videos and PDF files that explain everything. Once you have designed the application and test it through simulators to see if it works you can submit it to BlackBerry App World for publication. To pay the $200 and to submit it you need a PayPal account. But within this sum of money, you can submit various applications, up to 10 to be more exactly. Once you entered those 10, you need to pay again $200 for more to come. This might seem like a high price for you, but actually the cheapest application, besides the free one, is $2.99. You also get 80% of the sales revenue, so if you sell 100 applications, you can get your $200 back. Consider it an investment to your work and your project.
If your applications become popular and you make them useful, you can make some really good money, so if you are passionate about writing applications and Java programming, you should not go pass this opportunity.

To start with, did you know there are even feeling terms associated with emotions to describe users’ mobile experiences? For instance”aaackBerry” is described for when you leave the house without the mobile phone and “Gasp-Berrying” is the message you read exactly when you are somewhere else. In 2007 the French government banned using BlackBerry devices in the presidential palace, because they feared foreign spies might snoop around. There are more than 7 million people in the world using a BlackBerry phone and the number is increasing. There are even books published on how to use a BlackBerry device and books are different according to the model you have. They are filled with useful tips and tricks and how to manage your mobile phone faster. Lots of users and readers say they are especially useful and they did learn how to use a BlackBerry better than on their own. A manual is not enough sometimes, because there is more than technical information a user must know.
Furthermore, Barack Obama owns a BlackBerry phone and he is obsessed using it. He refused to give it up, so to make things better and keep the secrecy of what he is doing on the phone, a top secret BlackBerry device has been created for him with Secure Voice software. BlackBerry was used to be known as business devices, but things have changed greatly, because now they are considered all-in one entertainment systems for when you are travelling or simply on the go. The maker of BlackBerry won in 1998 the Academy reward for a digital film barcode reader, which is quite an accomplishment. The first commercial was released in 1999 as a two-way pager. The features of the first BlackBerry phone included e-mail and WAP services, monochrome display, HTML access using third party software and Java access. Since 1990 there have been more than ten different BlackBerry headsets introduced and they have sold about more than 40 million units. Most of the users check their e-mails when they are in vacation, right when the e-mail arrives, in the bathroom, in bed, while driving and it seems that even while in Church.
There are a lot of facts about BlackBerry, some of them being very interesting and some of them useful, but no matter what, it seems that using such a device comes with a lot of benefits. BlackBerry wins over the business market and little by little, it integrates itself in consumer segment as well, providing all in one devices.
