Ever since android was announced and became popular and till this day some people still think Android is a Samsung based mobile OS and they dont consider any other mobile manufacturer when thinking of owning an Android device. In my personal opinion Samsung has the worst Android skins ever not to mention how heavy it is when multitasking, the main purpose of owning an android device that you tailor the software to your use from choosing the launcher and the main apps also icon packs but unfortunately people just use whatever is installed on the device by the manufacturer regardless on whether its a good or bad app and at the end they blame the mobile device if the app crashes. Rarely I’ve seen people theme their android device or shall i say Samsung device to their needs which basically breaks the main purpose of owning an open source mobile OS.
What really drove people to consider Samsung as a dominant mobile manufacturer is the lawsuit between Apple and Samsung back in 2010 and Samsung flooding the market with cheap Android device even their flagship devices were made of cheap plastic yet most people ignored all the other Android manufacturers and ran to Samsung.
I wont blame it all on the simple consumer cause Samy also have the biggest marketing campaigns among mobile manufacturers, I just hope Android users start considering other manufacturers like htc, LG & Sony I not prompting for recommending a certain brand but Im so fed up with people buying cheap Samsung devices as if its the only mobile out there other than Apple’s iPhone.
Announced a few hours ago in Blackberry Live that the famous BBM Messenger is gonna be across platform app which means that iPhone & Android users gonna be able to simply download BBM from their App Store.
It’s a bold move from Blackberry to gain more users back on BBM but My initial thought that they are slowly killing themselves coz other than security Blackberry had this unique feature which now can be available on iOS & Android.
Many have been taking the plunge into buying the Samsung Galaxy S4 without knowing some basic information about the device they are paying for. The Galaxy S4 comes in 3 different models, the Quad core model which come in 3G or LTE & the Octa Core model.
I asked a representative working in Samsung Al-Babtain about the available models here in Kuwait & most of the available models here are the Quad Core ones while the Octa ( 8 Core) model is gonna be available within a month or 2 at most.
How to distinguish between each model ?
The Quad Core 3G is Samsung I9500 Galaxy S4
while is the Quad core LTE is Samsung I9505 Galaxy S4
The Octa Core (8 core) model Samsung I9502 Galaxy S4
You should know which model you are getting before spending your money on something you probably dont want especially is you already own a Galaxy S3 you dont should not upgrade to the galaxy S4 unless you get the Octa Core model.
Check out the latest commercial from Nokia trying to promote the Lumia 920 (Windows phone) while making fun of Samsung’s fan boys who most of them dont know that it runs Android :p and Apple’s addicts.
We have seen this kind of approach last year when all of Samsung’s commercial were about the iPhone & few years back when Apple made their PC VS Mac commercial series, could this kind of approach work for Nokia & Windowsphone ???
How do you usually pay your mobile bills & Network’s provider subscribtions ?
Do you waste your time going through different websites just to find a certain product & compare each one ?
Do you own a small business & couldn’t find an online payment method suitable for your customers ?
Im glad to announce that a new era for mobile payment has arrived. A new way to get away from all the annoyance mentioned above. We live in a mobile world where more than 35% of our time (according to some study) is spent using our mobiles & PCs and one of the most annoying things to do is sell & buy stuff online mainly because most of the local services don’t provide online payment through their websites, or if the do some are not user or mobile friendly, well thats all gonna change with TAP.
Last week we had a chance to meet Ali Abu-Alhasan One of the master minds behind Tap, to get a preview of this new service that I believe gonna be a big hit in Kuwait. Aziz & I burned Ali with our questions and concerns & he answered all our question professionally & honesty. We are really proud of those awesome Kuwaiti developers behind Tap.
Tap is a web app that enables you to buy, pay your bills and sell your products/services online without the need to go to the official website of the seller. Whats really interesting about Tap is the ability to create your business/personal profile and start selling your products within minutes without the need to worry about security, all small businesses gonna benefit from this service and you the cunsumer are the beneficiary, paying your bills, subscriptions, buying stuff and browsing through various products while enjoying your coffee or being in your comfort zone.
Check the demo above and be amazed.
Tap is basically a web app which is much better in my personal opinion than a mobile app, you just log into it from you browser no matter what mobile you are using (iphone, Android, Blackberry) and thats the main advantage of a web app, just open your browser and you are browsing through an app-like interface. Tap will official launch on May 6th but the site is live now for you to preview.

Now thats what I call a durability test. Anyone interrsted in getting the htc One or even the galaxy S4 must check the video above.
Many have been asking me about the Galaxy S4’s price so here you go Galaxy fanboys check the prices down below. I must mention that the prices below are for the 3G model NOT the LTE plus no matter where you buy it from I would highly recommend getting Albabtain warranty cause I had a horrible experience with Wahran’s unprofessional workshop staff.
