In today’s day and age, new technology is released at such an alarming rate, it is often hard to keep up with what is new and what is now considered old school. For example, in the UK, if you do a two year cell phone contract which seems to be the norm, by the time the contract is up, it is highly likely that three or four new versions of your phone have come out with at least five or six, software upgrades. Often these can be insignificant layout modifications or slightly more streamline designs as electronics manufactures strive to make their hardware smaller and smaller.
Blackberry Messenger revolutionised chat by allowing you to connect with your other Blackberry friends quickly and securely. Then you have WhatsApp which hopes to connect across all phones by using your contacts phone numbers. Apple’s own iMessage app allows you to connect across all its devices including Macs, iPhones, iPads and iPods.
Samsung’s Galaxy R is the Galaxy S2’s little sibling. Like any younger brother, its arrival will be celebrated, but in a more muted manner than that afforded the S2. As with any eagerly-anticipated newborn, information on Galaxy R contracts is subject to change: there’s only so much you can glean from a blurry in utero scan.
