Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:55 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

With only a couple of days left until the 22nd Olympic Winter Games start in Sochi, it might be the perfect time to load the related apps to your smartphone. While Samsung is an official sponsor of Sochi 2014 and has therefore recently released its WOW (Wireless Olympic Works) app for Android, Windows Phone users aren't left out in the cold because the Sochi 2014 Organizing Committee has just released the Sochi 2014 Guide and Sochi 2014 Results. The Sochi 2014 Mobile Guide to the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi allows to stay up to date, to know the accurate schedule of competitions and other events and to navigate in Sochi and at sports venues with the interactive map.

INVITATION: Samsung announces UNPACKED5 Event for Barcelona - Most likely to announce the Galaxy S5
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:56 CET under 04 - Android News

There were a couple of information floating around the past weeks that Samsung might not show or announce its next Android hero smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S5, in Barcelona, during this month's Mobile World Congress. Other sources have spoken from dedicated events in the UK or the US. I've saved you and me from all these rumors because a rumor is just a rumor and in this case they weren't even good one. Nevertheless, this morning Samsung sent out an invitation for its "UNPACKED5" event in Barcelona; and on top it also made the event public on Twitter. Following the previous Unpacked events, we can expect something great and the number 5 might indicate that Samsung will indeed unveil the Galaxy S5.

The Pebble appstore changes all this by providing a simple one-stop-shopping solution to discover, manage and install apps and watchfaces. The appstore features separate areas for apps and watchfaces, with six app categories.
