This evening at an MWC keynote in Barcelona Samsung took the wraps off of their next flagship smartphone. With the Galaxy S6 Samsung is addressing critic’s concerns at the firm’s apparent lack of innovation that could have caused the great fall in Samsung’s revenue and profits in 2015.

The S6, and its Edge variant, have been completely redesigned and present a fresh hardware aesthetic for Samsung with a strong emphasis on premium materials and ergonomic design at the cost of much beloved features. Read on past the break to learn more about the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge!

LG Nexus 4 reviewed and leaked on Google+

LG Nexus 4 reviewed and leaked on Google+

LG’s Nexus phone seems to have a name now, as pictures posted on Google+ have “LG Nexus 4” listed as the device name in the pictures’ EXIF data. Want to know who posted the photos? LG and Google employees. If that’s not confirmation enough for you, I don’t know what is.  The photos themselves are nothing special, and the ones posted by LG have been removed (the person who took them was testing the front-facing camera and an LG Electronics lanyard is clearly visible around his neck. Read on after the break for more information and a gallery.

[DOWNLOAD] Get the Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard on your Android phone now!

[DOWNLOAD] Get the Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard on your Android phone now!

 

Thanks to the enterprising folks over at XDA the Ice Cream Sandwich keyboard (with a lot of supported languages) is available as an apk file for download. It is the full ICS keyboard, except for the new fangled voice-input/dictation system.

It works well and far better than the Gingerbread offering, despite looking quite similar. There a few differences, such as the flat-gradient coloured keys and soft blue accents, and it is also a wee bit faster in operation too. I’m keeping it on my Desire Z even after my Galaxy Nexus arrives, how about you?

You can download it here.

[DOWNLOAD/PREVIEW] Firefox for Honeycomb beta

[DOWNLOAD/PREVIEW] Firefox for Honeycomb beta

There is, officially, no shortage of third-party browsers available for Honeycomb, each of which seems to have carved out a niche for itself with unique features and services. Heck, even the stock Honeycomb browser is pretty  damn good.

 

The thing is, though, that none of them offer up a really unique way of doing things. Each browser leans on one of two sides: they either follow the PC (stock Honeycomb browser, Dolphin Browser HD) or they go the way of the iPad – pre iOS 5 of course (Opera Mobile).

But then along comes Firefox, offering something fresh, something new. Firefox, as I’m sure you all know (if not, why are you even here?), is a major contender in the PC market, offering one of the most robust browsers out there. Their Android app, however, has failed to gain the same traction. Their Honeycomb app will most definitely change that.

Did Ice Cream Sandwich just get a video walkthrough?

Did Ice Cream Sandwich just get a video walkthrough?

So a guy goes ahead and orders a Nexus S from ebay, right?  Well, he gets the phone, plus a little something extra to the side.  You see, this particular Nexus S did not have Gingerbread installed.  Not Froyo either, perhaps as some cruel joke.  This Nexus S had Ice Cream Sandwich. A little too good to be true?  Perhaps, but it seems too grand a prank to pull.

Anyway, it seems to be an early build and from the settings this particular build is the same as that we saw leaked in photos a few months back.  The UI really does look like a cross between Gingerbread and Honeycomb, with some cool neon blue highlights and redesigned icons.  The task switcher looks cool too, but seems to be a little TOO Honeycomb-like.  It just seems added on, and there are apps out there that can pull off the same trick.  Take a look at the video yourselves after the break.
