Android came later than iOS, but it was pretty quick to gain momentum and it still holds the largest share of the mobile market. Nowadays, more than 55% of the market share was held by Android, according to research. The issue which one is better- Android or iOS, has become a sort of a crucial dilemma and a source of constant quarrels and arguments among technology geeks. And it’s not just geeks; even ‘normal’ people become more interested and engaged in this fierce debate.

New review by me…
"If you need more light there is a solution and that’s to get something like what I have for review today, the iblazr, which is an LED flash that can be used with both iOS and Android devices to put a little more light on your subject. The iblazr has four LEDs in it and can be used as a regular flash or as a constant light source like if you’re taking a video where you might need that light. Read on… "
The original BioShock is coming to iOS. There’s no official date, just ‘later this summer’. Curious as to how it would play on a touchscreen, but I guess I won’t find out until it hopefully comes to Android..
2K today announced that one of the Company’s highest-rated games of all time**, BioShock®, will be coming to iOS devices as a premium priced mobile game later this summer. BioShock will bring the complete experience of the original "genetically enhanced" action-adventure, first-person shooter to iOS devices, while offering optimized touch controls and full Made for iPhone (MFi) game controller support.
BioShock delivers a true triple-A first-person shooter game experience on the iOS platform, by sending players on an underwater adventure to explore the submerged Art Deco city of Rapture, fighting deranged survivors of a failed objectivist utopia and genetically modifying their own DNA to gain superhuman powers.
Developed by Irrational Games in 2007, BioShock launched to wide critical acclaim, garnering review scores of 10 out of 10 from Game Informer, 9.7 out of 10 from IGN and 9 out of 10 from GameSpot. The inaugural franchise release also won more than 28 awards*** for its visionary art, writing, audio and overall quality.
BioShock will be available soon via the App Store as a premium title for iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®****. For more information on BioShock and 2K, visit www.2k.com
Wow, I want one of these so bad… my contract with AT&T expired way back in November and I was trying to wait for a deal on a new phone, the phone I wanted was the Nokia Lumia 920 but it was never in stock when I had the extra cash, or when it was in stock or on sale I didn’t have the money for it. Can’t win y’know, it’s just how it is. I’ve had two Windows Phones now and I like them, but I’ve decided to go back to Android. I used to have the original Samsung Galaxy S, the Captivate and I loved it, but I wanted to try something new so I got the HTC Surround and the HTC Titan, both of which are Windows Phones. After all this time I still just can’t get the same things and do the same things on Windows Phone that I can on Android, and I’m tired of waiting for more companies to support the platform. It’s sad as WinPho is decent, but it seems there just isn’t support from major companies with apps and stuff for it really. I get tons of press releases everyday and I rarely get any concerning Windows Phone. Sure I get tons for iOS and Android, but not much for WinPho sadly.
I’m glad I waited though as the new Samsung Galaxy S4 is just amazing, it’s the most powerful phone out there today and I’m sure it will remain at the top for sometime to come. The new Apple iPhone is due to come out shortly but unless Apple comes up with something amazing it won’t beat the S4. Apple is known for just little updates to their phones and it’s usually years between major updates so since the last one was a major update you can bet the next one won’t be.
So I want one now, too bad there’s no official announcement as to when it will be available on A&T, just sign up to be notified. I wonder what the chances are of getting one early for review and keeping it are? I want this phone!
After the break I’ve included the official Samsung press release on the S4 if you’re interested…
