The iPhone 4S was released last week with iPhone 4S plans starting at $199 with each of the carriers. During the presentation, something was revealed which seemed a bit unusual. The iPhone 4S standby time has dropped 100 hours.
The technical details of the phone indicates that the iPhone 4S standby time is 200 hours which is still a very long time. However, the iPhone 4 was touted as having a standby time of 250 hours and going back even further to the original iPhone, that had a standby time of 300 hours.
In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S II has a standby time as 710 hours on 2G reception and 610 hours standby on 3G reception. It is difficult to compare the two in a real world environment however as both likely do their tests differently.
The most likely reason fro the drop in the standby power usage is the introduction of the dual core A5 CPU. It looks like they may have traded off some speed for battery life.
On Wednesday, Apple released the latest version of the best selling tablet in the world. The third generation iPad is one of the most anticipated devices of the year.
The new iPad has had some key upgrades to it’s internal and external parts. The first notable change is the screen. The screen has been given a huge upgrade and now has a resolution of 2048 by 1536. This screen resolution means that there is a pixel density of 264 pixels per inch with an overall pixel count of over 3 million. This makes it by far the best tablet PC screen on the market. Apple also announced that the screen will have better colour saturation which means that watching movies and looking at photos will be an much better experience.
The new iPad is expected to launch later this month and all carriers are expected to offer iPad plans.
What makes the Samsung Galaxy S2 a big step forward for Samsung is that it proves to the market that it is a serious and viable smart phone maker and creator of innovative technology devices.

Nokia has had a rough road over the last few years with Android and Apple devices taking over the highly lucrative smart phone market while they sit on the sidelines and watch their market share dwindle down from astronomical highs.
Their downfall has come due to the fact that they have not been able to capture the requirements of users and smart phones and instead giving users something that is neither functional or easy to use.
Nokia has long been stuck with a platform called Symbian OS which has always been used to run their smart phone devices. The operating system was never designed for touch screen devices, and when they tried to adapt it to these devices, it really did not work.
To combat their weakness in this area, Nokia have teamed up with Microsoft to produce Windows Phone 7 powered devices. The first device in this series is the Nokia Lumia 800.
