One feature that we all have come to love on iOS devices is the ability to take screenshots natively, without having to jailbreak, or install any third party app. On the other hand on Android phones, taking screenshots has always been a pain. It requires you to root your device, and then get this functionality either via custom ROM, or by using a third-party app.
With many owners of the Samsung Galaxy S still not rocking Google's Froyo version of Android, it's surprising to hear the company has been hard at work on a Gingerbread version of the OS. It's even more surprising that it's managed to leak said software on the web. Ooops.

The year 2010 is now coming to a close. Since I got to play with many different gadgets, I thought it will be nice if I summarized a list of my personal favorites from the year 2010.
Motorola is all set to announce a new product at CES 2011 to compete with the likes of Apple iPad, Android based Samsung Galaxy Tab and BlackBerry PlayBook.
Why do the likes of Google and Apple think that if they won’t roll out an update officially, it will never come the consumers way? Maybe they have that holier than thou attitude but developers in the more free world have the brains and tools to do so. Without actually waiting for the term official attached.

The latest and the greatest Android phone, the Google Nexus S is finally available now for purchase in US at Best Buy stores. Customers in UK will be able to purchase it starting from December 20th.
