Samsung have announced they will be releasing the new Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini on November 8th in the UK. There was speculation surrounding the mini, but now it is official. The downside it doesn’t seem to be a smaller version of its big brother, it’s not as powerful and has a 5MP camera, however, not to be dis-heartened it will be running Android 4.1 and although the price hasn’t been released, there is rumour that it will be around the £300 mark.
Other news regarding Samsung is there are rumours about a new 7.5in Samsung Galaxy Note, with the aim of filling the gap between the Google Nexus and their Galaxy Note. Apparently speculation began when test certification was listed for two models and the model numbers of GT-N reflects back to the Note II and Galaxy 10.1. But then there is another listing with the prefix of GT-T which is something completely different. So there we have it, nobody knows, but one thing is for sure, with the Apple Ipad mini making waves, Samsung won’t be letting themselves get swept away.
The little brother of the Ipad has the world of tech flying with rumours about release dates, manufacturing, the unveiling, there are so many hear says that pin-pointing the truth is like spotting a mouse in a cornfield.
However, if we look at the reasons for a mini Ipad, then we may glean a little bit of truth. Firstly, the Ipad has gained a bit of weight since its first appearance, whereas the likes of the Kindle Fire and Google Nexus & and Hook HD are lighter and at a better price to suit many budgets. A good reason for Apple to consider this market, also there are rumours October is the date for unveiling, avoiding stealing the thunder of the Iphone 5.
What else is going round the mill about the little un’. Well, of course we need to think about the price, what will this latest piece of Apple technology cost us? Recent quotes flying about are around the £200 mark, jeepers, seems they might be serious about the budget market.
Let’s just see what Christmas brings, as if it is going to make an appearance, who wouldn’t want that in their stocking.
