We know that RIM is planning on launching their new Blackberry 10 platform later this year, which is also the company?s attempt to try to regain some of their former glory which they experienced back in the day. Whether they will be successful or not remains to be seen, but as far analyst Peter Misek from Jefferies & Co. is concerned, while he sees Blackberry 10 as an improvement over Blackberry 7 and has potential, he does not think that it has the ability to take any market share away from Apple. He also does not believe that it will be an improvement over the upcoming iOS 6 and believes it to be on par with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. We have yet to try BB10 for ourselves so we can?t speak of its features and capabilities, so we guess we have to wait and see if Misek?s predictions will come true.By Ubergizmo.

The other day we reported that Apex Launcher had released a beta of its launcher for Android devices that would be based off Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. This should give users a taste of what to expect while they wait for their phones to be officially (or unofficially updated). If you?re not an Apex Launcher person and you prefer its rival, Nova, you might be interested to learn that Nova Launcher has entered a public beta for its own launch that will also be based off Jelly Bean, and here is what users can look forward to in terms of features: (more…)By Ubergizmo.

Good news gamers, if LittleBigPlanet Karting is a game you?ve been looking forward to, Sony has officially announced the release date for the game. It is expected to be hit North American markets on Tuesday, 6th of November and is already up for pre-order. If you?re wondering why would you pre-order the game, perhaps the bonus of an exclusive Kevin Butler Sackboy costume and an Executive Golfcart might be tempting enough for you to press the buy button. The game appears to be only for the PS3 at the moment, which we can assume might be kind of a bummer for PS Vita owners out there. In any case to get you hyped up, check out the video above which is the trailer of the game.By Ubergizmo.

The other day we reported that photos of the alleged Nikon 1 J2 had leaked and based on what we?ve seen, it looks as thought Nikon took away the ?1? in the J1 and replaced it with a ?2?. At that time not much details were known, at least until now when alleged details of the Nikon 1 J2 have emerged. According to these specs, it is pretty much identical to the J1, such as its 10.1MP CX sensor, an EXPEED 3 processor although one of the main differences we could discern was its new 920k dot LCD display, which is an improvement over the J1 and would make it the same as the V1.
We?re not sure what the point is in introducing a ?new? camera with the same specs as its predecessor, with the exception of its display. Then again, these are rumors at the moment which means that these alleged leaked specs might not be the real deal. Either way if the rumors are to be believed, a release date for the J2 could be announced next week, so stay tuned ? until then we suggest taking this with a grain of salt.By Ubergizmo.

The Nikon P7100 was released last year which makes sense to think that there is a chance its successor could be released this year. Now according to the folks at Nikon Rumors, it seems that Nikon will be unveiling a new high end Coolpix camera at the end of the month. It is expected to feature a 28-200mm f/2.4 lens, but apart from that, not much else is known. It is unclear if this will be the P7200 the successor to last year?s P7100, or if it will be in a new category altogether. Either way it seems that this particular camera is expected to be the rival to Canon?s PowerShot G1X, but we?ll be keeping our eyes peeled so be sure to check back with us at a later date for more info!By Ubergizmo.

One of the pretty unique features of the Galaxy Nexus when it was launched last year was its display which is curved ever so slightly, lending to the possibility that fully flexible smartphones are indeed in the near future. It seems that inspired by the Olympics and perhaps thinking of what the next Nexus device should or would look like, engineer Dorian Lust has come up with a concept device.
Featuring a very obviously curved display, it seems that the idea here is for the phone to sit comfortable in the curve of your palm. Other features include a built-in kickstand, LEDs positioned on the edge of the device that acts as notification lights and also lights to help with the front-facing camera during low light situations, along with a fingerprint scanner for security and an IR blaster. It looks a bit odd and personally the design isn?t for me, but what do you guys think? Any takers?By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Rumor: Nexus 10 in the works, Nexus 7 tablet image leaked,
Amazon Kindle Fire owners, if you felt that one of the features missing from your 7? tablet was Spotify, well you?re in luck as Spotify has officially made its way onto the Kindle Fire tablet, bringing with it custom radio stations, social features such as being able to view your friends? playlists along with 320kbps music streaming. So if you?re a Kindle Fire owner and Spotify is one of the apps you?ve been waiting you, pop on over to Amazon?s website for the download. Spotify also charges a subscription fee if you wish to be a Premium user at $9.99 a month which not only will provide you with songs with no ads in between, but will bring about more free features than the free version. The free version of Spotify will still provide access to some of the core features but users will have to put up with ads in between songs. The difference between the paid and free versions of Spotify can be found at their website.By Ubergizmo.
