Want to take Firefox OS for a spin? Firefox Plugin Makes it Easy

While Firefox OS isn’t here yet, it is coming soon— sometime in early 2013. If you are interested in the OS and want to give a test drive, you previously could use a nightly build and throw it onto the Raspbery Pi or even flash it to a Galaxy Nexus. These methods were both quite complicated, though. Good news, a new Firefox browser plug-in allows you to emulate FireFox OS on Mac, Linux and Windows.

Want A Massive 5.8-inch Media Player? Samsung Has You Covered

What about 5.8-inch? Would this be a tablet or a media player? Samsung has created the new Galaxy Player 5.8, a Media Player that just happens to hit the size. You have to wonder though, who’s it for? It’s not much smaller than a 7-incher and yet not much bigger than a normal media player or smartphone- it’s basically a Phablet without the ability to make phone calls.

Samsung-Apple Court Case Kicks Up Even More Photos Of iPhone And iPad Prototypes

The Samsung-Apple patent wars continue to push on at full swing revealing all sorts of dirt including Samsung ignoring Google’s warnings that their designs were too close to Apple, and internal memos that show that even the iPhone was actually influenced by earlier Sony-style designs. This war doesn’t seem to be slowing down and no real victor seems in sight, but at least all these court discoveries and findings are kicking up interesting prototype/mockups that help us see the clear evolution that took place as Apple designed its various iOS-based products.

Cool iPhone 5 concept video makes us wish it was the real thing

AatmaStudio has released a cool concept video for the iPhone 5. It looks awesome, but how likely is it that the iPhone 5 could actually have the features shown in the video? Ultra thin design, for example, might be possible. Smartphones are getting thinner and thinner, with the title of the world’s slimmest smartphone currently held by the Medias N-04C from Japanese company NEC Casio Mobile. At 7.7mm, the Android handset beats both the Galaxy S II and iPhone 4 when it comes to slimness.

And now, we are already on the cusp of the next Google flagship phone, the Google Nexus Prime. No, there’s no relation to Optimus… possibly because Google sounds like it’s sticking with Samsung rather than switching to LG or back to HTC.
