Dell Streak: Hands-On

30 Apr 2011  1 Comment

The Dell Streak is an android device that got released last year, June of 2010 to be exact. A friend just got one and I managed to play around with it.

The device seems well built with a nice 480×800 5″ screen that I think is a bit too large for my taste.

The device is also pretty slim, as you can see in the photos compared to an iPhone 4.

But as for the internals there isn’t anything special, it might have been a year ago but now with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S II being released next week in the UK.

The Dell Streak is being sold in X-Cite for KD196.

Complete specs:

  • A 5-inch capacitive multi-touch WVGA (800×480) display.
  • Fast 1GHz Snapdragon ARM-based mobile processor from Qualcomm.
  • 5 MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash.
  • VGA front-facing camera.
  • A user-removable (and replaceable) battery.
  • Integrated 3G + Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) + Bluetooth 2.1
  • UMTS / GPRS / EDGE class 12 GSM radio with link speeds of HSDPA 7.2 Mbps / HSUPA.
  • A user-accessible Micro SD slot expandable up to 32GB.

A Blast From The Past: عبدالكريم عبدالقادر – للصبر آخر

22 Apr 2011  No Comments

كلمات: عبداللطيف البناي
الحان: راشد الخضر
للصبر آخر خلاص عافك الخاطر
حاولت أسامح ولكن ماني بقادر
روح بطريج وأنا بطريج
خلني على جرحي العتيج
خلاص عافك الخاطر
تذكر يوم صرت أنا حديث الناس
ومن منّه ؟ .. منك يا أعز الناس
واليوم أقدم لك عذر
وإن كان لي عندك قدر
محبتي اقطع من رجاها الياس
روح بطريج وأنا بطريج
خلني على جرحي العتيج
خلاص عافك الخاطر
هذا القرار الأخير وإعتبرنا منتهين
لا تنتظر لحظة حنين هذا القرار الأخير
ما أحبك .. بقناعة قلتها
إنتهى الحب إنتهى
إلتهى القلب إلتهى
وهذا القرار الأخير
روح بطريج وأنا بطريج
خلني على جرحي العتيج
خلاص عافك الخاطر

Apple Suing Samsung? Really?

20 Apr 2011  2 Comments

Apple are suing Samsung for infringing on patent for the original iPhone design. Apple are claiming that Samsung’s Galaxy line is a straight copy from their work and the Galaxy S is just too similar the the iPhone/iPhone 3G/3GS.

The funny thing is that Steve Jobs in an interview done way back in 1994 (back when apple were the underdog) said that “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas”.

LG Prada KE850

Also, LG also complained when the original iPhone was introduced that Apple is is trying to copy the LG Prada. A device that was first announced on December 12, 2006.
