Our friend Frankom, a presenter with BilMo5ba youtube channel, made a short video review of the new Samsung Galaxy camera. This new gadget is a camera, with the features of a phone. So it basically is a high spec camera, runs on Android, and can make calls and messages too. Instead of trying to buy a phone with an amazing camera (which we all do, wink INstagram and Twitter), you can now get a really great camera with the option of using it as a phone too.
I personally stopped carrying my Canon with me on daily trips, and basically rely on my Samsung NoteII for pics and video. It really is more than plenty for daily stuff. I’ve even used it to shoot the huge record breaking fireworks show a couple of months back [link 1 and link 2], and had great and amazing results.
So in the end, I do see a huge benefit from this new gadget, especially when it runs on the most advanced Jellybean Android software. Why do you need a sophisticated phone, when all we do is just make basic calls. What we really need is a sophisticated mobile camera, and that’s where the new Samsung Galaxy Camera comes in.

Samsung just sold its 100 millionth Galaxy S phone. It got to this huge milestone in less than 3 years, since it launched the S in May 2010. In comparison, the iPhone took 4 years to reach the same figure.
With every new Galaxy S update, more phones of it are sold. This means that Samsung is able to improve and advance on an already very successful product.
I personally have the Galaxy Note II (not the S, but nearly identical to it). I got it when it was released in October to replace my BB. Within a week, the Note II became my main digital accessory. I hardly use my iPhone anymore except to make calls. Twitter, Instagram, browsing, blogging, sharing, pictures and videos (amazing camera, check here and here) are all much faster on the Galaxy.
One of the best features I love so much with the Galaxy is the S-Beam. You can instantly share pictures (imagine sending 10 pics at once to a whatsapp contact) and files to another Galaxy just by clicking them together. One other thing I love is the affordability of this new advanced technology, the S3 and Note II are all cheaper (and better) than iPhones.
The Galaxy S4 is (most probably) coming out this April. I can’t wait to see what new technologies that model brings us.

I’ve been in the US for a week now, and the first thing I needed here was Internet on my phone. We went to all three major mobile phone companies, and most don’t have prepaid Internet lines. Our only and beat option was AT&T’s GoPhone plans. I got a one month unlimited local calls and texts (including Mexico and Canada) for $50, and then added unlimited one month data (which I also use as a wireless hub for my both my Kuwaiti line iPhone and laptops) for just $25 extra. The process is easy simple, and takes 15 minutes at any of their branches.
There are cheaper options too, like just add $10 for a 1GB 1 month plan. The connection is way faster than ours for phone Internet, and almost snappy for laptop use. So if you’re ever in the US and need Internet on your phone, then just get this from AT&T.

Urban Moon is a local guide app, something between a phonebook and an info. center. I’ve been using it on my iPhone for a couple of years now, and it’s just the best there is (after they revamped it).
The new redesigned Android app is now out, and it’s free as usual. I downloaded it today, and it looks just like the iPhone one, only way faster.
Here’s a few notes about the app in case you’ve never tried it before:

Update: Great news, Al-Babtain are officially releasing it in Kuwait [link].
I read over at I’m-geek’s blog that Geant is already selling the new Samsung Galaxy Note II phone, for KD 210 with a free KD 20 shopping voucher.
That is truly amazing. The phone hasn’t even been released in
England yet (not till beginning of Oct.) anywhere in the world yet. South Korea itself just got it yesterday. And they make the Galaxy Note 2!!
I want one. If anyone’s going to 360°, grab me one while you’re there. I mean it, I want one.
Update: Turns out Geant don’t have the phones yet, only taking pre-orders. Phones will come in 10 days. That is such a lame ad! Not cool Geant!!
