Get your dose of: Weekly News Roundup!
My Next Phone
So, it turns out that I will be "Upgrading" my phone soon and the device that stands out for me is the Samsung Galaxy SIII, Android's Top dog for 2012. Sadly though, I will be getting the North American version which is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual Core Krait CPU...which is not bad at all, being clocked at 1.5GHz and kicking ass in the Benchmarks but I would have loved the awesome Quad core Exynos. GPU wise, it is slightly better than the average phone with the Adreno 225. Anywho, that's what I'll be getting soon so expect an UBOXING, a ROOTING video guide and Custom ROMs :D
Oh btw, it just got released in the US on June 20th and in Canada it's gonna show up on the 27th...hope I can get mine then!
Android 4.1 aka Jelly Bean
I hope you guys are not as surprised as I was when I saw Google's slight slip up on the Play Store. For a while now, you are able to buy an Unlocked "Pure" Galaxy Nexus from the Play Store in the US. Just today, the description when you went yo add one to your basket was, "The latest smartphone from Google, soon the first phone with Android 4.1, Jelly Bean"
Well, that's quite a slip up so most probably this will be displayed at Google I/O 2012. In terms of Rumors go, the only one that was constantly floating around was the Dual Booting into Chrome OS but again, we have no 100% proof.
That's all that's going on at this moment BUT I will definitely bring you updates on the Google I/O which is gonna be up and running from the 27th to the 29th.
