iOS 6 vs Jelly Bean, a tale of two updates

by on September 21, 2012 2:45 am

Yes, we know it’s iPhone 5 and iOS 6 week this time of year, as Apple has released its sixth major mobile OS refresh a couple of days ago which was followed by the sixth iPhone launch – currently taking place in Asia and Australia and quickly spreading to Europe and the North America. But what we’re strictly interested in today is the inevitable iOS 6 vs Jelly Bean update comparison when it comes to availability and adoption rate among existing consumers, which you know from the get go that it’s not going to be a battle Google can win just yet.

LG Venice

A twitter post from EV Leaks has given us an official photo of a new Boost Mobile phone model, the LG Venice. Well, the name is new at least. The leaked phone model is actually the LG Optimus L7. This is a similar move to what U.S. Cellular and LG did, renaming the L7 as the Splendor.

Releasing an innovative device alone won’t necessarily translate into great sales, as there are other variables involved to propel it into sales stardom – something that the Asus Padfone is clearly lacking.

Galaxy Note 2

We learned yesterday about its American launch on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and U.S. Cellular – with most of them being only available in October or thereafter.

LG is hoping that its upcoming quad-core Optimus G is going to lift the brand to new heights, from where it can look down on other companies. With no confirmation yet so far on when the phone will hit UK, there’s another quad-core offering from the Korean – the Optimus 4X HD – that you can consider, especially now that it’s been heavily discounted.

Galaxy S2

As a natural born gourmand, I’ve tasted a lot of weird and funky recipes over time, but there’s one thing I never thought I’ll get the chance to see cooked – a smartphone. And no, I don’t mean cooked as in having its hardware or software tweaked to up the performance, but cooked as in left on a hob to get all tender, soft and juicy inside.
