Instagram is a free, easy to use photo-sharing service.

Using Instagram, photos snapped with cameras, smartphones, tablets or other devices can be quickly edited and posted to Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare or Tumblr.

(A Flickr version is expected soon.) What has garnered Instagram so much attention is that its creators have found a way to let users take advantage of photo filters and borders, keeping the program simple and functional.

The first step is to download and install the app, which is available as free downloads from the Apple App Store @ http://itunes.com/apps/ instagram/ or the Google Play market @ http://goo.gl/ZDZfk. The Instagram application is compatible with the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 3.1.2 or above or any Android device running Android 2.2 or above.

BlackBerry 10 Coming This Fall? RAZR Maxx Making It’s Way Across The Pond, New Droid Incredible 4G Pops Out Of Thin Air

Smartphone Briefs

by Chris Coleman@PhoneKnack

RIM has been mum on details concerning BlackBerry 10 but a recently leaked roadmap has shined a little light on subject. No official date has been released or announced but by looking at the roadmap we can see what RIM has in mind for upcoming BlackBerry releases and then play the guessing game as to when we should see BlackBerry 10.

I foresee RIM releasing BlackBerry 10 sometime in October or November based off previously stated timeframes for it’s release. This is purely speculation but I imagine that RIM does not want to get overshadowed by the release of the new iPhone which will most likely be making a late sumer/fall debut as well.

For those UK fans who have been patiently waiting for Motorola to give you an official taste of the latest Droid action, your prays have finally been answered. Motorola has announced that the Droid RAZR Maxx will be available sometime in May, but UK customers can begin to pre-order now.

The specs for the UK version of the Droid RAZR Maxx are near identical to its US counterpart. Both Clove and Expansy are currently taking pre-orders.

Pebble: E-Paper Smart Watch right on the “SPOT” for Android and iPhone

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

technology-headlines.com

I’ve been a fan of smart watches since Microsoft launched Smart Personal Object Technology (SPOT) watches back in 2004. Do you remember Spot? The now defunct service used FM radio signals to broadcast information to your wristwatch.

The service once activated could send content to your smart watch including weather, news, stocks, calendar, sports, horoscopes, lottery results as well as downloadable watch faces. You could also have text messages sent to your watch via MSN Messenger.

Enter Pebble, which was introduced in a Kickstarter project as the first watch built for the 21st century. Pebble promises to be what SPOT could only dream of. Pebble connects by Bluetooth to an iPhone or Android device. Pebble will have an app market that will feature downloadable watch faces and a host of internet-connected apps.

Livin’ large with the 5.3” Galaxy Note

 Is that a large smartphone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

technology-headlines.com

By now those of you interested in the Galaxy Note, have probably already looked at the phone statistics and any number of reviews. Rather than just give you my initial impressions, What I’d like to do do is to give you some insight on what it’s like to live with the rather large but svelte member of the Samsung family.

There is almost no getting around the fact the phone is large, the Galaxy Note sports a 5.3″ WXGA (1280 x 800, 285 PPI) HD Super Amoled screen. For me the size has been more of an asset than a detriment in day to day use. The extra screen real estate on the Note has made mobile web browsing productive and for the first time for me on a smartphone, enjoyable!

Quick Look: Timeriffic, control mute, vibrate, brightness, wifi and airplane on/off on your schedule.

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

technology-headlines.com

Timeriffic is a very useful, easy to set-up and manage Android utility that allows you to control mute, vibrate, brightness, wifi and airplane on/off on your schedule.

Ever since my days with the Palm Treo, where you could set a simple on/off schedule for the phone with a couple of clicks, I’ve wanted an easy to use utility that would allow me to control many of my phones settings on a schedule.

Another day, another Samsung Galaxy S III rumor, iPhone 5 coming in June? UK Carriers begin selling the HTC One X and S.

Smartphone Briefs

by Chris Coleman| @PhoneKnack

The latest rumor making the rounds around the Internet is that Samsung is including a Super AMOLED Plus display which would allow the Galaxy S III to showcase its 4.65inch screen at 720p HD resolution. You may be wondering what in the world a smartphone 720p HD display even looks like, well here is a side by side comparison.

The difference between the two is very clear and quite stunning.

With that being said, we can most likely expect the Samsung Galaxy III to be hitting stores sometime in May as AsiaE has reported that carrier testing is currently underway.

Are you ready for the Samsung Galaxy III? We know we are.

Nokia takes aim at Apple

Smartphone Briefs

by Chris Coleman@PhoneKnack

Nokia is attempting to make a big splash in the US market and what better way to do that than to go after one of the top players in the game, Apple.

Nokia’s new ad campaign called Smartphone Beta Test, is a series of mock videos that showcases the developmental process of the iPhone. The aim of the campaign is to show the public that they are just part of beta testing while using an iPhone and they should head over to the nearest AT&T store and buy the new Nokia Lumia 900.

See one of the videos from the beta testing campaign after the break.
