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 ???
Yesterday marked the preview of Windows 8 for mobile & of course the never ending war between Apple & Microsoft. Microsoft trying to take on Siri with their newest voice recognition software & no matter how hard i try to make myself believe that Windows could make a comeback the thought of errors and lags never left my mind. Check out the video and you will definitely know how Microsoft Siri embarrassed then by not responding to the first voice command
Nokia finally revealed their newest baby from Microsoft the Nokia Lumia. Running on Windows 7.5 Mango Microsoft’s newest mobile OS which doesnt bring anything new to the user’s experience just a new interface for the old buggy windows phones. Didn’t Microsoft lean from their previous failures !!!!!!
Do u think anyone would buy such a device ?????
I don’t think so even if I got it for free I won’t waste my time on it, 2 horrible products combined together Nokia & Microsoft a mobile nightmare.
2 weeks ago i flew with my buddy Aziz to Dubai to attend the GITX 2011, for me it a trip to wonderland with all the technology surrounding u, ginat company names that we use their products all gathered in one place to show us their muscles and prototypes to amaze us & compete against each others.
So many companies and gadgets to review i actually could not think straight with the tech around me i was living in a dream i didnt wanna wake up from. Sorry for the lack of photos coz we had such an amazing time as for myself i could not think of anything other than trying to go to every booth and see their gadgets and tech solution so if u dont like the pics blame Aziz 😛
Its basically impossible to cover all of GITX in one post but ill share with u some of the high lights and things most people will be interested in. Lets start with RIM ( BlackBerry manufacturers) the main high light in their booth is the PlayBook. Its my frist hands on the 7″ tablet by RIM and actually i was so surprised from the responsiveness of the screen unlike the Bold 9900 so responsive i felt im using an iPad. I wont deny i fell in love with it, first coz of its size, the best size to carry around unlike the iPad ( I hate carrying my iPad around especially when im in a shopping mall) other than the size i have mentioned the screen responsivness and ill say it again SOoOoOoOo RESPONSIVE even more than the Motorola Xoom & Galaxy Tab
I opened so many apps in the same time trying to see how many apps can it handle all opened in the same time and actually i failed to make it crash or lag even when multitasking no delay whats so ever. As for the browser its not like ur BlackBerry browser, fonts and pics loads up pretty quick and so refined compared to Safari on iOS devices almost the same & also no flash support.
The BlackBerry PlayBook only comes in a wifi version & if u need to tether it u must own a BlackBerry so u may also use ur BBM on it
If u dont own a BlackBerry and wanted to get the PlayBook they had an offer u wont resist or dream of 16 GB PlayBook + BlackBerry Curve all for a small price of 1799 AED = 135 KD which i believe is an awesome price for such a Tablet.
By the way the same tablet will be getting a software update by RIM so u can also download and install Android Apps on it, the best of both worlds. I would have got one although i own an iPad 2 but 2 tablets in the same time i will feel guilty using one and not the other.
CaseMate the famous Mobile covers manufacturers were displaying their newest Headphones. Their design and style rocks with great sound quality but i wont think of one unless its much cheaper than Boss, Sennheiser & Skull Candy headphone. I wont mention Beats by Dr Dre coz they r so over priced with a medium sound quality only a HABBAA.
LooooooL Nokia trying so hard to compete but actually nothing worth seeing their.
Now lets go to Microsoft, i was shocked to know that they didnt bring windows 7 with them to GITX only office updates and the Microsoft surface which is getting pretty old & not so responsive as u may think. Its microsoft if u dont experience a lag or an error then u r not using it correctly 😛 sorry windows but u r falling hard and i cant see u improving.
Everyone is talking about the iphone 5 rumors & although im an apple addict but lets not forget our Microsoft lover’s readers. Microsoft released some keynotes on what they r working on their newest operating system & it includes more than a 300 new feature coming with their newest baby.
The past few years were the worst for Microsoft, falling against apple whether in the PC market or even the mobile market. I know that I won’t be thinking of buying Windows 8 but I would love to test it, I have lost my faith in windows years & years ago but can they surface up again, I don’t know. Here r some of the new features for Windows 8. Its a great list of what Microsoft is working on in Windows 8 but will it work probably that’s the Question:
Protection against app (…)/ malware scan
Apps are certified
Windows Adapts To Your Location
Hardening For Genuine
Integrated Load Balancing

Microsoft updated its Hotmail security with a wonderful update, a new button that in my personal opinion will solve all of its problem
Simply when u have a friend that have been hacked and his email is sending u 10000000000 email just click the button that says (My Friend’s Been Hacked !)
Thats really so creative of them :-p Microsoft is loosing it i dont know how people r still using their products since 2011 started i havent heard or read about such a stupid tech news till Microsoft came up with their magic Hotmail button. Im categorizing this post into Stupidity
