Samsung Google Android event set for October 19 in Hong Kong [Official]

Invites have been sent out to those considered worthy of attending what may well be the biggest event in the shared history of Samsung and Google, one taking place LIVE from Hong Kong, China.

One way or another, the 19th of October, Hong Kong (and the 18th of October, USA, for those that understand time zones,) will be the date of the big Samsung Unpacked event that was cancelled last week. Can you even contain your excitement at a time like this?!

Odd British Man Totes Mobile in Barcelona [EXCLUSIVE]

Odd British Man Totes Mobile in Barcelona [EXCLUSIVE]

So I was standing there, minding my own business in an oddly calm moment during the several day madhouse that was Mobile World Congress 2011, and there they were, a man who could only say "Action," and a man who had clearly practiced his news voice for many many years.
