Samsung Galaxy Note ICS 4.0.4 update

Samsung was quietly rolling out the ICS 4.0.4 update. I though only Germany get it but SGN users in Singapore and Malaysia were also able to get the updates OTA.

Hopefully this update will resolve the battery issue on GB and ICS 4.0.3 firmware.

This firmware update(4.0.3 to 4.0.4)is about 100MB in size. I recomment you to use the Wifi to download if you are on a limited mobile data plan.

Cooking MaMa Java Game


Cooking MaMa is the most favourite game feature by the Nintendo DS and Wii System. You can now play it on the iPhone and mobile phone also. The game starts off offering you 15 recipes – examples include miso soup, fried chicken, and Salisbury steak – and by successfully cooking said dishes you access further recipes until you have a whopping 76 in your repertoire. Each is broken down into a series of tasks, with Mama standing over you on the topscreen and offering instruction on each stage.

It's also possible to practice the tasks before attempting them for real, and you can combine dishes to create for a rounded meal of your choice, too.

Tested and working on Sony Ericsson, Nokia, Samsung and java enabled phone with 240X320 screen size.

Samsung Omnia

The Samsung Omina has been term the Apple iPhone killer. It runs on the popular Windows Mobile 6.1 OS. The large 3.2″ WQVGA TFT LCD allows you to view your pictures and videos on a large screen.

The generous 16GB flash allows me to store all my favourite pictures, videos and music on the Omina. There is a lot of applications that is available for use on the Samsung omina. The most important is the Chinese CE Star for me as it allow me to write and read chinese characters.

I love the camera with face detection and smile detection. The 5MP camera allowed me to take clear and sharp pictures. The face detection is good as it allowed me to focus on human face instead of the background. The best will be the smiling detection, it automatically capture when my children smile at the camera. It is great for shooting children photos.

The touch screen is very responsive and keying in of characters is easy. You just need to lightly touch the screen to key in the characters or navigate the menu.
