The Galaxy S2 has been one of the most successful Android smartphones to date with over 10 million units sold, so its obvious when Android’s latest version comes out, Ice Cream Sandwich would come to the GS2 aswell.

Apple fans have got their fix with the iPhone 4S and launch and many are disappointed, but thankfully us Android junkies still have Google to look up to for the highly anticipated Google phone, the Nexus Prime.

Now a new video has surfaced on Samsung’s Youtube channel that teases a new phone coming at the upcoming event, it might just be the Nexus Prime considering what we have already heard and the big curved screen near the end. (The nexus prime is rumored to have a 1280 X 720p 4.6″ screen) Whatever it is, we’ll get to finally see it on October 11th at the event.

At the Lets Talk iPhone event today, Apple surprisingly showcased two new apps for iOs5, Cards, and Find My Friends.

Privacy is a concern ofcourse, so you can choose to limit the time period during others can see your activity. And then there is the Cards App…
The wait is finally over folks! Apple has finally announced the new iPhone at today’s Media event.

As rumored the device has Apple’s dual core A5 chip, an 8MP camera and the same 3.5″ Retina display we all know. However there is much more in the details than that.
The Samsung Galaxy Note is one of those smartphones that stands out from the crowd, quite literally in this case thanks to the huge 5.3″ Super Amoled 1280 X 800 pixel display. The device was expected to launch this fall and now Samsung has announced that a Europe launch is in order before the end of October with major launch events in Germany, UK and France. Samsung’s own country, Korea will be getting the device a month later, although that might seem like a let down for Koreans wanting the device, they will get a bit of exclusivity since the korean Galaxy Note will be packing a 4G LTE radio aswell.
