And the New iPhone 4S is Unveiled. Meh.

After months of speculating, rumours, and patience (and frustration!), the new iPhone has been unveiled. It’s called the iPhone 4S, and boy oh boy, is it ever underwhelming.

Think of when Apple announced the iPhone 3GS. It’s more of a refresh than a completely new phone. The specs have been improved greatly (dual core A5 processor, 8 megapixel camera, Siri voice recognition software, to name some), but not enough to fully justify selling your old iPhone 4 and getting the iPhone 4S. I mean, if you’ve waited this long for them to announce the iPhone 4S, chances are, you can wait another 6 months for them to announce the iPhone 5. I’m looking at you, iSheep.

Apple, thanks for another underwhelming announcement. And Tim Cook will never be like Steve Jobs. Never!!

P.S. I still think the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone released to date, so it comes natural for the iPhone 4S to overthrow its predecessor. I don’t hate the phone itself. I just think the hype wasn’t worth it. All you iSheep, you can go back to worshiping your new messiah, Tim Cook.

Apple is the Bane of All Evil

Ok, seriously Apple?  You’re really going ahead and doing this?

Apple is rumoured to announce the highly anticipated iPad 2 on February 9, 2011.  Does this date sound familiar?  Of course it does.  It’s the date HP/Palm is announcing their version of webOS products.  This all sounds eerily similar to when the Palm Pre was about to launch, a couple of days before, Apple announced the iPhone 3GS. 

Steve Jobs, you can go suck it.

After the massive success of my first contest, I’ve decided to hold another one!  And guess what…the winner gets a pretty cool prize.

When my blog reaches its 100th subscriber or once I reach 100 followers on Twitter (@salamahoy), I will randomly choose one of them, and the winner will receive an INQ Chat 3G Smartphone!  It retails for over $100, so I think it’s pretty damn cool just for subscribing to my blog!

BlackBerry Dakota: First Look

Touchscreen?  Check.  The 9800 form factor?  Check.  HD Recording?  Check.  BlackBerry OS 6.1?  Check. 

Finally.  RIM is back in the game.  Here is an exclusive look (thanks to BoyGenius) at the BlackBerry Dakota, and it looks sweet.  In my opinion, RIM should have ditched the Torch entirely and released this instead.  Here are the full specs:

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • Tri-band UMTS
  • 5 megapixel camera with HD video recording, flash, and image stabilization
  • 4GB of built in storage, 768MB of RAM
  • 2.8-inch VGA 640×480 capacitive screen
  • WiFi b,g,n on 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies
  • 3G mobile hotspot!
  • MicroUSB port
  • Bluetooth
  • NFC
  • Magnetometer
  • Accelerometer
  • Proximity sensor
  • 10.5mm thin
  • Launches with BlackBerry OS 6.1
  • Does anyone else think this is the best BlackBerry that’s going to be released?  I do.  But they better release it soon.  Along the release date of the PlayBook would be perfect timing.  And on a side note, the NFC feature is a blatant rip-off of the Nexus S (sorry, had to add the obligatory negative BlackBerry comment).
