Web OS Ported to Galaxy Nexus

While HP only got it to work on a desktop system, some talented developers were able to put out Open Web OS 1.0 on actual mobile hardware, aka the Galaxy Nexus. But of course just like any new software it has its bugs (ahem iOS Maps). Though it has reached basic functionality such as Wi-Fi capability, it hasn't reached the ability to use any cellular capabilities. Another major challenge is getting hardware acceleration working (which is a common issue in porting ICS to Gingerbread devices), which  means there will still be lag. So for now this can't be considered usable, but it goes to show that WebOS isn't dead.

Amazon's Limited Offer: $99 Galaxy S III With Contract!

 WOAH. From $699.99 to $99?! That's a bit intense there, Samsung. Apparently Amazon is giving out a major deal for customers out there. Their newest offer, a $99 S3 with a contract. The price drop is only going to be very limited so for the ones who want this deal, go out for this grab NOW. Obviously no one is going to give you such an amazing phone for $99 only. You'll have to get a contract with Sprint, AT&T, or Verizon it's your pick. At one point, you will pay more than the original price, but it's better than buying the phone at full price, right? You can go to this link (click here) and get whatever you want, but be sure to get the right plan that really fits you!
