I don’t know what it is, but I love watching Escalator fails! This one looks like it’s in slow motion…but it isn’t. Just a really slow progression to epic escalator failure. Source – JJ.am Pin It
Samsung let the world know that it plans on announcing and unveiling the next Galaxy device (Galaxy S III) on May 3rd 2012. The event will take place in London at a press conference by invite. This happens to be the next Samsung’s Mobile “Unpacked” event, where in past events, Samsung has not only focused on one device launch, but has shown their next wave of mobile products, including software upgrades and apps.
The Galaxy S III is believed to be the name of the next Galaxy device, despite it not specifically being named on the invite seen above. Regardless, the Galaxy S III device is rumored to have a huge 4.8inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen with full 1080p display capabilities. Other specs include an 12 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front facing camera, 1.5GHz quad-core Exynos processor (not the Tegra 3), and a unibody ceramic casing as opposed to the plastic casing from earlier Galaxy devices. It will be running Android 4.0.4 ICS at the time of launch, which has been expected to drop into most carriers sometime in June 2012.

Before the time of tablets and smartphones, a war raged between two technology giants. The PC era was dominated by Apple versus Microsoft, and we may very well see that war again in the “Post-PC Era” of technology. The iPad reigns supreme over Android and BlackBerry tablets, in fact, neither have come even close to challenging the sales figures of the Apple iPad generations. With Microsoft coming back into the game with Windows 8 tablets and PC operating systems, we may finally have a worthy opponent to the Apple iOS family. As Windows 8 launch looms ever nearer, Apple is getting their ‘ducks in a row’ to do battle once again.
We’ve heard about the rumors that Apple is planning an “iPad Mini” tablet which will be 7.85 inches in size. It was thought that this device will be to battle the 7inch tablets with Android and BlackBerry PlayBook OS. Really though, they don’t hold a candle to iOS, but Windows 8 would. All reports suggest that Apple will launch this new ‘Mini’ tablet under the $300 price to make it very competitive, which would basically force Microsoft into selling Windows 8 tablets under the same price line. The main difference however would be that Microsoft may not have a whole lot of control in dictating the sale prices of the Windows 8 tablets, as they are made by 3rd party manufacturers. Apple iPads are made by Apple (or at least manufacturers who build them with Apple’s full control).
Apple may already be testing these devices, and therefore, would be finalizing details on a release product soon. The latest report from NetEase shows Apple has 6 million units ready for launch in Q3 2012 (July – September). We’ll begin a new war for tablet dominance with the same two behemoths that started it 30 years ago.

There’s no denying that Apple is on a serious roll when it comes to product launches over the past decade. With Apple (AAPL) trading well over $630 on the NYSE, and the 3rd generation new iPad out on the market for the last month, the next big launch will keep the ball rolling.
Many are questioning what the next iPhone will have in store when it launches later this year. There have been rumors that the next iPhone will sport a much larger screen (some say 4.6inches), but anyone that knows Apple or read the Steve Jobs biography for that matter, knows that Jobs was against a larger screen on the iphone. Steve Jobs was also still very involved with the overall planning of the iPhone 5 just prior to his untimely passing in 2011, so what the iPhone 5 will have in it will be nothing short of another amazing product.
An analyst for Topeka Capitol Markets reported on Monday what he believes Apple will be including with the next generation iPhone to investors. Brian White stated that Apple’s stock price could go over $1000 as well. Regarding the next iPhone, White said it is expected to have a 4inch touchscreen display and a “new, sleek look” pointing towards a unibody case. Apple is known for its ability to create unibody casings for many f its other products including the MacBook line, Man Mini, and Apple TV.
The timing of the launch is one of the many other reasons for rumors around the iPhone 5, and one Foxconn employee went on record stating that the 6th generation iPhone will launch in October 2012. The Foxconn executive stated;
We just got the order,[The release] will be around October.
Other details in specs for the new iPhone include 4G/LTE, 1GB RAM, and the latest Apple dual-core A5X processor.
