Some phones are just too big for Mobile World Congress. That’s Samsung’s thinking, given the triumphant launch of its Galaxy S II — in all its guises. While specifications for Sammy’s next flagship are spinning rumor windmills across the web, there’s nothing particularly concrete on what we’ll be seeing just yet. However, in an official statement received by Techradar, the manufacturer revealed that the phone will be treated to its very own launch — something it’s also plotting for its new Google TV sets. In its own words:
“Samsung is looking [...]
Its about time the rumor mill starting churning at full speed as Apple fans all around the world are anxiously waiting for the iPhone 5 release. While we don’t know when iPhone 5 is releasing, we do know that it can even be called the iPhone 4S with just minor design improvements, larger screen and that A5 dual-core processor. Previous reports have hinted at a possible 12.6 megapixel camera for the next-generation iPhone, and now alleged iPhone 5 camera parts have cropped up online to tell their own stories.
When compared to the iPhone 4, it is evident that the front facing camera on the next [...]
Not too long ago there was a rumor going ’round that Disney wanted to update its aging but awesome Star Wars ride, Star Tours. What sounded like a mere refresh is now a full-blown replacement, as Disney announced that it will cease taking passengers on Star Tours in Disneyland and Disney World on July 27th and September 8th, respectively.
A new version of the Star Wars adventure will open up in May 2011 and feature a 3-D screen and podracing. (Yay?) The ride looks like its shares the “tours” theme of the original, though expect plenty of more prequel-style action, which I can’t [...]
Rumor has it that the sexy looking HTC Evo 4G which happens to be a power house as well will cost just $200 on contract. This rumor comes from a Best Buy representative which might have some weight to it but you never know.
If this rumor turns out to be true, then the 4G enabled phone will be costing the same as the HTC Incredible which as the name suggests is simply incredible. This is a bit surprising considering the fact that it has a gigantic 4.3 inch touch-screen and WiMax.
But I don’t see a reason to complain? Do you? Anyhow, this device also has a front facing video camera [...]
One of the main gripes about the iPhone/iPad operating system is that it doesn’t support multitasking. You can’t run more than one app at once, which is annoying. But rumor has it that that will change when the iPhone 4.0 software is released this summer.
So how would multitasking work? Similar to Expose in OS X. Hit the home button twice and all of your apps will spread out as small icons across your screen. Tap one to go to it. It’s a pretty easy.
Would you do it differently? On Android, you can pull a menu down from the top of the window to access things like text messages, [...]
Rumor has it that Nintendo is hard at work on a followup to its incredibly popular DS handheld; a DS2, if you will. They’re far enough along, in fact, that a handful of developers in Japan already have development kits.
These kits hint at the capabilities of the new handheld, including motion controls. This is in no way surprising, given that Nintendo’s Wii brought motion controls to the masses and the iPhone brought it to handheld gaming. But it looks like Nintendo is keeping motion controls at the heart of their plans. Hopefully we’ll have more details about the DS2 soon.
A few devices are very popular with rumormongers. The Zune Phone/Pink phone is one such unreleased device that they sporadically revive. The latest rumor has Microsoft releasing a phone in the next two months. Jefferies & Company analyst Katherine Egbert wrote in a recent note to clients that their “recent industry checks” seem to suggest the phone could be unveiled at “either the Feb 15-18 Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona Spain, or possibly at CTIA in Las Vegas one month later.”
She further expects Microsoft to collaborate with an established OEM to produce the actual [...]

There’s a magazine in France called Black & White. It’s Michael Jackson’s official magazine over there. Check out the cover:
Looks great, right? Right.In the latest issue, composer Brad Buxer said the following:
B&W: Can you clarify the rumor that Michael had in 1993 composed the music for Sonic 3 video game, for which you have been credited?
Recently, we got a rumor that Sony may announce a new PlayStation at the Gamescom expo in Cologne, Germany, on 18 August, 2009. The rumor is the most fruitful for Europe. In news a French retailer announced that PS3 is really on the cheap cost of 100 euros. According to the retailer, new system may arrive in stores next month but still not confirmed.
In the interview retailer said that the new edition of PS3 is in limited stock. The rumor is on the way and evidence allows us to think that new PS3 will come till next week. It is the good news for Europe people.
On the other hand, there is another [...]
