Samsung execs confirm the Galaxy Note 8 is still happening

I am a great fan of the Note series! So obviously this is welcome news.

The only one I haven’t used is of course the Note 7, reason being that it didn’t debut in South Africa. I had booked and waiting for mine before the crisis. 

I think the Note is a great concept especially with the S-Pen feature, so scrapping it would have been unfortunately unfair to the Note addicts like me.

We await the coming of the Note 8 and hope all the necessary precautions have been taken to prevent a re-occurence of the 7 disaster.

Good luck guys.

Blackberry launches the “Mercury”!!!

As an ardent fan of the Blackberry I can’t wait to see what this phone has to offer that will distinguish it from the other Android phones currently in the market.

One thing for sure is that it is equipped with a Qwerty keyboard which makes it possible to type using a physical keypad. 

All the “normal” features that one can u on the keypad should be available on the phone. 

Not certain at what end of the spectrum BlackBerry wants to play with this phone all I can say is goodluck this time guys. 

One small advice though – can you guys allocate a lot more money to promoting your products! For instance not many people know about the Blackberry PRIV, the first one to run on the Android platform. The phone is so unique that it has both a physical Qwerty keyboard and touch screen. One downside for me is that it doesn’t have the fingerprint feature. 

Let’s look forward to the Blackberry Mercury. 

Apple Sells 9 Million 5s, 5c iPhones in First Three Days

Apple Sells 9 Million 5s, 5c iPhones in First Three Days.

Those are very impressive statistics for Apple, considering what’s happening at RIM and BlackBerry.

3 days, 9 Million phones? Wow.

We say congratulations to Apple for this achievement and like we all know its always the consumers that benefit from competition and news like this.

Now it will get their rivals thinking.

I just wonder how the competition will react to this news especially Samsung who have given Apple a good run for their money in the recent past.

What are they going to come up with to challenge this new Apple baby?

We hear that there is a plan to release the Galaxy Note 3 any moment now after the run away success they had with the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Here is hoping that whatever Samsung or any other competition to Apple comes up with gives us something to croon about with regards to innovation and heart stopping features.
