Reports have surfaced that the latest edition to the Samsung Galaxy family, the Samsung Galaxy III will measure in at a relatively slim size of  7 mm. The Droid RAZR, which is currently one of the thinnest phones on the market measures in at 7.1 mm, so you can imagine how thin we are talking.

The Samsung Galaxy III is rumored to be released this upcoming May and will feature a 8megapixel rear camera and 2megapixel front-facing camera. Look for the device to run on Google’s latest operating system, Android 4.0(Ice Cream Sandwich). Multiple reports have cited that the Galaxy III will sport 2GB of RAM, have a quad core processor, and will also be 4G LTE compatible.

If this news is all true, the Samsung Galaxy III will be a hard phone to beat this year.


Reports are surfacing that Skype for Windows Phone has moved to the next stage in development and is now in the testing stage. There is no set amount of time when Skype will be fully ready, however, signs are pointing to a grand unveiling later this month at the Mobile World Congress Mobile in Barcelona. This would be great news to all Windows Phone users if Skype is indeed unveiled. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, and cross both legs as well, that might be the trick.

Hipster type photos are all the rave thanks to the success of the iOS app, Instagram. InstaCam, a similar app has debuted in the Windows Phone Marketplace. InstaCam allows users to take pictures, edit them, and share them via social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Similarly to Instagram, you can follow other users and comment or like photos that they have posted to their account.

InstaCam is free and you can check it out here if your interested in downloading it.

Reports have resurfaced with new pictures of the long rumored Blackberry London. From the looks of this device we can acknowledge that RIM, the makers of BlackBerry, are finally looking to join the ever-changing smartphone race. The sleek design of the BlackBerry London has us sweating from excitement in the middle of the coldest winter. When is the BlackBerry London coming to the market? According to a leaked roadmap of RIM’s upcoming devices, the London washing ashore to American soil come Q3.

This device could be the game changer that RIM needs to be back into the hands of smartphone users worldwide, but lets keep our fingers crossed.
