Samsung Galaxy S II is presented by several sites as the smartphone of 2011 and all this with a month before the end of the year. If we look at things objectively the choice is good but the simple fact that it is only fair.

iPhone 4 could not be chosen the phone of the year (because it won the title in 2010 and still was an old product), iPhone 4S could not be elected because it was launched only in October and was observed mainly through Siri and a lot of problems and other Android devices to merit the title doesn’t exist.

This year Samsung Galaxy S II is the smartphone of the year because is stronger than the iPhone 4 in terms of performance and because Apple has delayed the launch of the iPhone 4S months so it gave enough time for S II to “perform” on the market. If the iPhone 4S was launched in June of 2011 the things were different but in my view Galaxy S II worth to won the title this year.

As a consolation for Apple, iPad 2 was chosen as the tablet of 2011 and the product of 2011 and MacBook Air of 13 inch was chosen as the laptop of the year.

An iPhone 4 caught fire inside a plane that began the landing procedure and now I return with information about another iPhone that has just suffered the same fate. In the picture above we could see the device that apparently caught fire while was on loading on the table of an user. He says it is only at a few inches of the device when it began to pull smoke and then flames out, while it was connected to the computer.

In the morning, I woke up seconds before witnessed the burning of my iPhone when I saw a lot of sparks and black smoke out of the cell. My room was impregnated with an unbearable smell smoke! That moment, turned off the power switch in the room to remove the cell the outlet.

The fault seems to be battery of device which apparently had been lit probably due to a manufacturing defect. Unfortunately this is the second incident occurred just at a few days away from the plane at an Australian company. Incidents like this are rare but when it happens drag all the attention because the world does not expect that a premium device to take fire out of nothing. If you happen, immediately ventilate the room where you are, because the smoke out of terminal is toxic and is recommended that to not inhale.

After a year and a half of availability, iPhone 4 showed us that is the most fragile iDevice manufactured by Apple and the iPhone 4S not differ with anything since it is built in exactly the same way as iPhone 4. Well from the issues of users Apple had something to learn and now develop new ways to make the iDevice more resistant.

We are not talking about replacing the glass case from back but we talk about some systems that should make the pieces more “resistant”. First Apple thought of a polymer material, foam or gel material that would “withdraw” when the device is close to impact, and removing the case to avoid breaking it.

Apple’s solution would have the effect of an airbag that would change the structure of the material during and after impact. Another idea of Apple’s engineers involves chemically treated glass case of our devices, chemical treatment, which should do much more “powerful” over bumps.

My opinion is that if they make from glass will break even if it is blessed in church and the only way to ensure users that will not have problems like that is mounting aluminum or hard plastic cases.

Apple is testing Siri on the iPhone 4 but the assistant will not get on the old devices of the Cupertino company. Well today I will say that iOS 5.0.1 beta found information that Apple employees imply that Siri testing on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad tablet.

Given the availability of information you think that Apple is already preparing the launch of Siri Assistant for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad tablet, right? Well no, because although Apple employees test Siri on various iDevice, the assistant will not reach on old terminals because Apple wants to offer exclusively on iPhone 4S.

It seems that Apple is preparing some interesting things for Siri and A4 chip is not powerful enough to run the assistant without any problems. Siri now works without the slightest problem on iPod Touch 4G and iPhone 4 and many find it hard to believe that the future will not involve the assistant Siri’s in iDevice.

Well it seems that you have to get used to the fact that Siri will not get on the old devices without jailbreak and it is possible that in the future to implement new features that Apple will not run on the A4 chip from iPod Touch 4G and iPhone 4.

You probably know that Siri has been successfully ported to the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G and for many this port is a great victory against Apple users who said that Siri will be available exclusively on the iPhone 4S.

Some videos and news shows how well Siri work on iPhone 4, show that the system responds to commands and shows us that we could have everything right on our iDevice. Unfortunately things are different right now because everything you see above might not ever reach your device.

The reason is simple: launch of a method to install Siri on iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G would be illegal and those who would do this could be sued by Apple. We all know how lawyers are zealous company and a lawsuit against a developer could result in its bankruptcy.

Those who say they do not ported system will launch ever in its current form because it is exposed in front of that Apple could sue. Basically the port launch illegality does it all and if not will find a legal way to port the iPhone 4 when Siri will take a few brave people who make it public without being found by Apple.
