Super Secure Android Smartphone Built

Boeing, the successful aircraft manufacturing company have decided to venture into making smartphones; but, not your ordinary kind of smartphones -- the ones that are very rear and made for government agencies and personnel that are highly security conscious --The Boeing Black Super Secure Smartphone. The Boeing Black super secure smartphone doesn't come with all the spec overkill you would find in a Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone but that of a medium range smartphone. The phone is so secure that if there is any attempt to pry open the phone, all the files will automatically get fried and perhaps blow up on your face (that last part is a joke). The smartphone comes with a 1.2GHz quad core ARM Cortex9 processor running inside of it, PDMI port, MicroSD slot, 4.3 inch display and a highly modified Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2. According to Boeing, the security features of the device include the following: Android™ Operating System : Convenient smartphone for Androi

BlackBerry: New BBM Will Increase File Transfer Limit Above 6mb

I love using BBM for chatting, its very good but when it comes to sending files, i abhor BBM. One of the issues I have with it is that it has a size limit of 6mb before you can transfer file. That means, if you want to transfer a high res image of 6.5mb, you wont be able to use BBM for such transfer to your contact. Well, it looks like BlackBerry have seen the light, heard the thoughts of her users and have decided to release a new BlackBerry messenger that would increase the 6mb transfer limit as seen in the tweet below. Currently, Whatsapp, have a transfer limit of 12mb which we even think its small. Therefore, we expect that BlackBerry will beat the Whatsapp transfer limit and make BBM limit somewhere around 15-20mb. The announcement which came from Jeff Gadway is highly welcomed and we are looking forward to the next BBM update that will see the transfer size limit increased.

Samsung Galaxy F Series Smartphones Unveiling

Samsung have lifted the veil off the Samsung Galaxy S5 in a less noisy way to the world. Although, the North Korean based company have added good numbers of new features and enhancements to the device, yet, a few number of folks are unsatisfied with the device -- and this is especially because of the plastic casing that the S5 comes with. It would be untrue to state that not so many people are looking forward to a metallic, high premium finish Samsung Galaxy S5 and so when Samsung unveiled the SG S5 in another plastic form factor; spirits were dampened; however, all hope are not lost. Recent reports have been leaked detailing how some high Samsung executives were discussing a way to unveil a new line of Samsung galaxy devices known as the Samsung F series during the MWC 2014 in Barcelona.  Apparently, the new line F series launch needs to be big so that the fan base would be high. Perhaps, it may be a reason why the Samsung Galaxy S5 unveiling was a little ebbed dow

Goophone S5 is a Samsung Galaxy S5 Carbon Copy But Cost Just $300

After watching the Samsung Galaxy S5 launching and seeing the features and specifications of the S5 device, I was impressed but I was also aware that to buy the phone off contract unlocked, I will have to shell out a good amount of money.

How To transfer Your game apk + data from Your Android to Another Android Phone

Recently, I felt a strong urge to play Real Racing 3 game on my Android tab instead on my Infinix Alpha android smartphone. The thing is I don't want to download the 809mb size game on my tab 'cause I don't have that time, so I  improvised and got it working finally. Perhaps, you are looking at doing the same thing; may be from phone to phone or phone to tab. Regardless of the convention, there is a very easy way to get it done. Many ways have been suggested in achieving this. One way is to use Carbon (Helium) App Sync and Backup but there are issues with it and can be very slow. This method is faster. To achieve your aim, follow the following steps: We shall assume that you are trying to transfer Real Racing 3 to your tablet Steps 1. Download and install Titanium Backup app and install on both devices. You can install on one device and then use Flashshare or myappsharer to transfer the Titanuim apk to your other device. Also transfer RR3 apk to your tab.

Facebook Acquires Whatsapp For $16 Billion

A rumor long ago was that Facebook and Google were bidding to buy Whatsapp for an unquoted price. The rumor was later dispelled and the matter became of the past. However, this time, Facebook have agreed to acquire Whatsapp, the social messaging company/app for $16 Billion: this is not a rumor as it was confirmed by Facebook. According to Facebook, the $16 billion will include $4 billion in cash and about $12 billion worth of Facebook shares. The agreement also provides for an additional $3 billion in restricted stock, to be granted to WhatsApp's founders and employees, that will vest over four years once the deal closes and also see the CEO of Whatsapp joint the board of directors at Facebook. To date, this is the largest buy over that Facebook has done - the deal with Instagram ($715.3 million) doesn't even come close. Facebook says it would keep Whatsapp as a separate entity just like it's doing on Instagram. Like our Facebook page and follow
