The constant flow of new devices from Samsung can be rather bamboozling at times. The Korean outfit likes to roll out dozens of new handsets every year, and while the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note ranges occupy the higher end of the market, the mid and lower end of the spectrum is regularly inundated with Sammy devices. The J series, which already consists of the Galaxy J1, J5 and J7, could be about to add a fourth member, with new evidence pointing to a Galaxy J2. If you are a fan of top-tier devices with impressive specs, then the J series has probably been off your radar. The low-end J1 was the originator, while the J5 and J7 have each brought more powerful hardware and front-facing flash, among other perks. The Galaxy J2 could be about to join the party, with a model number SM-J200F having just appeared on the IMEI database. This isn't the very first time said handset has popped up, either. Indian import tracker Zauba also referenced the device last week according to … [Read more...] about All-new Samsung handset (SM-J200F) pops up in IMEI database; could be the Galaxy J2
Until recently, there wasn't much known about the LG Gelato, yet rumors are now slowly starting to emerge. Thanks to several leaked screenshots of Sprint's internal database, we now have a reason to believe that the smartphone may be known as the LG Optimus Slider when it launches later this year. Another spicy detail that the leak suggests is that the Optimus Slider is allegedly scheduled to land on Sprint's shelves on September 11, but being three months in the future does not make the presumed launch date very plausible.Judging by its name, the LG Optimus Slider is extremely likely to come with a slide-out keyboard of some kind. Another hint in favor of the assumption is that the smartphone is probably meant to replace the LG Remarq – one of Sprint's feature phones that launched about a year ago bearing a vertical slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately, there seem to be no clues regarding the Optimus Slider's hardware specs at this time so we will just have to wait and … [Read more...] about LG Optimus Slider aka Gelato shows up in Sprint database with September 11 release date

By Jennifer Van Grove2009-01-04 14:26:29 UTC It seems like every day there's at least five new Twitter apps popping up. The news of a shiny new Twitter toy gets dispersed through Twitter streams everywhere, hits critical mass, news dries up a bit, and then, if you're like me, you forget about it completely. So where do you turn when you need to reference multiple Twitter apps, see what others think, or view app ratings? You could ask your Twitter friends, do a quick search, or wander over to the Twitter Fan wiki, but there should be a better way, right?
