BlackBerry said its new platform will be available in the U.K tomorrow which is Jan 31st while Canada should expect shipping on Feb 3 but the United States can wait still sometime in March as no exact date was given. After this major shipping the new Device should now go Global.

If you're in Canada, there's a favoritism as both devices Z10 and Q10 goes for $149.99 with three year contract. However Lab testing for 110 worldwide carries will be completed at the end of February, so releases should follow shortly thereafter.

The above picture shows the real OS interface for the new Blackberry 10. Rumour has it that the new devices would be coming with a SiRi like application.

As you can see, the second picture shows a mic like the SiRi does on iPhone 4s and the one Samsung has on S 3(III). Though the design sure looks similar but not the same coz Apple might go on a Lawsuit against the company for copying their brand. Its also seen to be as a voice search application, as the mic stays in an environment that has a search box on top of it.

Thinking about the voice search application apart from SiRi there's no Smart phone with such feature except you download it from a third party app vendor and this could really be a huge success for the Blackberry as it surfaces globally mid February 2013.

However applications like facebook and twitter still has the same GUI, perhaps they(RIM Developers) are only trying to test run the app and to know what could possibly go wrong during the use of the apps on the New platform. So Twitter and Facebook should begin working on a different layout for this smart phones as they did for iPhones and Androids. This is BB 10 for crying out LOUD!!! Lol

The most anticipated Blackberry 10 is officially coming out by the end of this month(Jan 30, 2013), the first picture above shows what the first BB 10 Z10 complete touch screen would look like, it has this ultra slim shape, tho it looks like one of this Sony Xperia designs.

Z10 BB10 full touch smartphone comes with the following features:

•a dual core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4470 processor
(Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 for the US and Canada markets)

•a 4.2-inch display with 1280 x 768 resolution at an eye-popping 356 PPI (pixels per inch), which leaves the iPhone's Retina display with 326 PPI quite far behind

•Connectivity options would include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 3G and, of course, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n)

•an 8MP AF shooter and a 2MP front facing camera with 1080p video recording

•microHDMI-Out for AV with microUSB for PC
interfacing and charging

• And lastly, 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal
storage (hot-swap microSD)

However Blackberry 10 is said to be able to stream 1080P video on YouTube website with ease, The keyboard in BB10 features several tricks that keyboards on iPhone or Android devices lack,

"BlackBerry Flow" - this is the name of the new user interface.

"BlackBerry Hub" - the BlackBerry Hub is a
notification center that gathers all your notifications, messages, feeds or calendar events and lets you access them with just a gesture, no matter what you're doing with the phone at that time

"BlackBerry Keyboard" - this is an innovative
keyboard that learns and adapts to your writing style, thus helping you write faster and more accurately.

"BlackBerry Balance" – this feature will separate your personal apps and information from your work data, but will also enable you to switch from your personal to your work profile with simple gestures.

Let's just hope this rocks our New Year!!!

More Updates coming up before the deal day...

This is the next generation of the Galaxy S series, the Galaxy S IV. According to Sammobile .com this is indeed the Galaxy S IV, The design of the device looks also very similar to the design of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier, By looking at the picture of the device we observed a few things, the device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the devic (Finally), the bezel around the device is much
thinner and the device features a large display.

We didn't get any confirmation on the specifications of the Galaxy S IV but the rumoured specifications are listed below:
- Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz
- Mali-T658 GPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 4.99" SuperAMOLED FULL HD resolution
(1080×1920) Display
- 13 Megapixel Rear Facing Camera
- 2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera
- Android 4.2.1 (Out of the box)

I also learnt the release date of the Samsung S IV(4) phone might be coming out not sooner than April 2013 as insiders had it that the phone is ready, going under self test and its going to be the biggest thing that ever happened to Smartphones!

My take on this is that, why the same old shape!, oh perhaps coz iPhone 5 didn't get any shape than its predecessor iphone 4 and 4S? Also if they claim complete touch screen(since obviously there's no HomeButton) what happens when the system software is misbehaving how do you go back to the home screen? Or is it a problem free device, Never Hangs when overload? If this my questions can be answered then this has to be the in thing for 2013!

Just few hours into the new year, rumors has been going round about the yet unfold Apple latest smartphone IPhone 5s, though I learnt Apple won't be calling the phone 5S because they believe IPhone 4 had a lot of trouble during it first few days of release from consumers(like you) so instead of making IPhone 5 same year of the IPhone 4(which is unusual) so they named the new smart phone "IPhone 4S".

Now that we have IPhone 5 in market doing tremendously well, App developers have confirmed that Apple are currently testing the new Iphone 6 which is coming with iOS 7 on the apps been developed for IPhone 5.

A usage log from the popular apps in App store tells that the iPhone 5 is identified in app usage logs as 'iPhone 5,1' and 'iPhone 5,2' depending on which 4G LTE it uses, so the new 'iPhone 6,1' identifier is believed to be Apple's next generation model.

As noted by TNW, OS and device data can be faked, but the 'iPhone 6,1' has been traced back to an IP address in Apple's Cupertino headquarters, adding evidence to the theory that Apple is testing its seventh generation iPhone and the seventh iteration of its mobile operating system on popular apps in the App Store.

It's believed that Apple began working on iOS 7 towards the end of 2012, and that the company will soon finalise the features that we will get when the new software is released this year.

However The Commercial Times estimates that full commercial production of the rumoured iPhone 5S will begin as early as Q1 2013, with the December run expected to have made between 50,000 and 100,000 units.

Apple is also rumoured to have developed a second generation of its iPad mini with a higher resolution screen that could also go on sale this year(2013).

Well fingers are crossed let's just watch and see its still a new year tho hahaha!!!
