Finally the Samsung Nexus S has started receiving the update from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich. I have to say that I am very impressed with the update.
One thing that you don’t have to worry about this time round is losing any data, I did the OTA update on my Nexus S and I have everything left exactly the way it was before the update, all my apps and SMS messages are still where I left them. You will however lose any root capabilities since it’s a whole new OS. Even my ringtones went untouched in the update.
FNB is making it very easy for their customers to own a tablet or smartphone. It is only available to Gold and Platinum cheque account customers or those wishing to apply for those types of accounts. There are certain conditions that apply as usual. You need to have your salary paid into the account and your debit orders need to come from this account.
Pricing wise its a good deal, for the iPad 2 you’ll pay them R200 per month for 2 years, which amounts to R4800. (more…)Google+
So Google and Samsung have officially unveiled the Android 4.0 toting handset. The next iteration in the Nexus series – The Galaxy Nexus. It is Samsungs latest flagship handset. It doesn’t beat the Galaxy S II by much but given that its a pure Google device, it will no doubt be very quick on the draw compared to other phones with similar specs. It will be running vanilla Android just like the previous 2 Nexus phones. Both of which are particularly fast phones.
I detailed the specs in my previous post but here we go again
- Galaxy Nexus
- OS: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (more…)
If you’re like me and got annoyed with all the prompts to update your Nexus S to 2.3.6 and just updated the phone and lost your root access, then you can follow my previous guide on rooting the Nexus S.
There’s no difference in rooting it this time round, except that you don’t loose all your apps and info.
The original date of 11th October has been pulled and there is no new date set, some sites were reporting an October 27th launch date but that has also been scratched by Samsung and Google who can’t seem to decide on a release date together. (more…)Google+
So Apple announced the new iPhone 4S, now Samsung is announcing their new flagship device which by the looks of some leaked specs, is going to be a beast of a phone. Lot’s of Android fans have been waiting for the next Nexus phone, I know that I’ve been waiting for it. (more…)Google+
Quite a while ago FNB released an Android Application, it started out a bit buggy but has come a long way since then. It’s quite a handy application if you’re on the go. The only problem which seems to be the biggest complaint from most users is the lack of prepaid services, the FNB website is known for that amount of features including the prepaid services.

I’ve decided to put up my Android App of the week. It is the Official IRB RWC 2011 app, it’s that time again when all rugby playing nations come together and fight for the Webb Ellis Cup. Being South African myself I’m sure that most other South Africans would appreciate this Android application as much as I do. It’s pretty sleek, easy to use and packed with results and fixtures. You’ll find team and player stats for previous World Cup matches and for the current one. (more…)Google+
