Apple announces Mountain Lion OS X, the merge of iOS and OS X is near

Today Apple shocked us all by doing something foreign: announcing a major OS X release with no rumors, no speculation and no keynote. Out of the blue, Apple let the cat of the bag by announcing it’s current desktop OS’s successor: Mountain Lion. OS X 10.8 dubbed Mountain Lion is going to be just like the upgrade from Leopard to Snow Leopard,  small but affective. Likely to be priced at $29.99 for a summer release, Mountain Lion features the best from iOS 5. The most important being the new notification center. Just like in iOS 5, you click a button on your status bar and boom, your notifications pop up. 10.8 also includes great new features like iMessage for Mac (which you can download today in a beta form right from Apple), Notes, Reminders and a share feature in Safari. If you’re interested in more, hit up the source link for more infomoration on the new desktop OS.

Note: Mountain Lion is available today for Mac devs but it will not run on Intel Core 2 Duo machines. Sorry Macbook Air owners! 😦

Samsung announces Galaxy SIII event will be separate from MWC 2012

Regardless of the fact that the world expected the unavailing of the Samsung’s Galaxy SII’s successor at Mobile World Congress this year, Samsung has sent out a PR statement confirming those rumors to be…not true. Samsung is Samsunging is us all by pulling an Apple on us. In the statement, they claim that they would rather “announce their new device closer to the commercial release date. PR statment after the break!

“Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012. The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product.”

AT&T adds new data plans, 3GB for $30, 300MBs for $20, 5GB + tethering for $50

Remember the day that AT&T announced that their unlimited plans would go bye-bye? Everyone, including myself was upset at the new plans, and felt that they were getting ripped off that 2GBS of data was now $25 bucks. For only $5 dollars more, you used to be getting unlimited. Don’t forget though it wasn’t true unlimited though, it was really 5GBs. Regardless, AT&T feels your pain, so they decided to add back higher data plans. For $30 bucks (which used to get you unlimited/5GB), you can now get 3GBs of data. For about $20 bucks, they’ll give you a tiny little 300MB of data. But if you pay a whooping 50 big ones, Ma Bell’ll give you some 5GB of data, plus a tethering option. They’ll be available on Sunday, the 22th of January. So, will you switch?

BREAKING: LTE Galaxy Nexus Coming to Sprint Update: Pulled!

This ad that just appeared on CNET.com says that the Sprint Galaxy Nexus is going to be the very first LTE phone from Sprint. Ditching WiMax, Sprint announced today that is going to roll out LTE in markets by the middle of the year. Think this ad is legit? Or was it a test ad that just slipped? Head on over to CNET and click on this article, this is where the ad appeared, maybe you’ll see it too! What really makes this interesting is that the ad says that the specs are not a 1.2GHz dual core processor, rather a 1.5GHz dual core processor.

 

Update: We just went back on CNET and not to our surprise, the ad has been pulled. We’ve reached out to Sprint for comment as well.

webOS to be open sourced

After months of speculation, a new CEO and 3 dead devices, HP has finally decided the fate of webOS. It’s going to be open sourced. This is what I (and I think most) people were hoping for. But the good news doesn’t stop there. In an interview with Meg Whitman courtesy of The Verge’s own Joshua Topolsky. Meg said that HP is planing on putting webOS on another tablet in the near future. She said that while 2012 maybe a little too early, we would defiantly will see a webOS tablet by 2013. When asked though on the fate of smartphones, she said they have no plans nor interest on putting it on them again, and don’t want to get in the smartphone business under her ruling.

When more news on the fate of the OS roles in, we’ve got you posted!
