Samsung Metro C3752 Dual Sim Phone | Review

First thing that I noticed about Samsung Metro C3752 is its fast response to my key presses. Metro C3752 has latest version of BADA operating system and is powered by fast processor speed. This combination gives a pretty good experience while using this mobile. Samsung Metro C3752 is a dual sim (GSM+GSM) slider mobile. We should give credit to mobile designers at Samsung for their thoughtfulness while designing this dual sim mobile; for easy switching between two GSM SIMs there is a separate button at the side of the phone. I found this sim selection button convenient while making calls. Samsung Metro C3752 also scores on its smooth finish design and compactness.

This article will be updated frequently to accommodate any latest entry in tablet PCs, also there will be an update in case of price change in India.
India has always lagged behind in early release of new electronic gadgets.

Speak Asia Online Press Conference | Raises More Doubts than It Clears

I  joined as a survey panelist in Speak Asia Online few days back. I was very clear about why I was  joining Speak Asia Online, I just wanted some quick money and was ready to take the risk involved with the initial investment of 11k rupees.  With the return of 1 k rupees each week, it should take 11 weeks (less than 3 months) to recover my investment. Before opening account in Speak Asia, I had read warning posts by Labnol.org and other bloggers but as the amount was 11 k rupees only, I went ahead to take my chances. Just 4 days after I opened my account, Star News gave this dreaded warning about Speak Asia,
"STAR News exposes Speak Asia Online. Following the STAR News expose on Speak Asia Online, BJP leader Kirit Somaiya decides to complain about the company to RBI and Sebi."

iPad 2 is now officially available in India | Price and specifications

Apple earned a bad name when it chose to ignore Indian market for iPad. Now it seems that Apple has learnt its lessons and is not ready to ignore 1.21 billion strong Indian Market for its newly released iPad2. Just 2 days back Apple India announced that iPad 2 will be available in India now. One interesting thing to note here is that in present times Apple is feeling the heat of immense competition in tablet market. The current generation of Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) based tablets from almost all major manufacturers are giving Apple a run for money.  Because of this Apple is now targeting markets where the presence of Android based tablets is almost nil and where better to land than India, where people have purchasing power and Honeycomb is not present here. This becomes even more evident if we observe that Apple has made no similar announcement for its iPhone 4 which is doing ok in sales in US and Europe markets.
