Samsung Galaxy S II Beats iPhone 4S For Phone Of The Year Award

Well well well, what do we have here! Samsung’s flagship super-phone – the Galaxy S II – has beaten the super-popular iPhone 4S for a Best Phone of the Year award. Details after the jump!
 The news comes straight from Pocket-Lint – a popular weblog covering consumer electronics – in the form of a post in which they announce winners of their annual Gadget Awards.

Their award for Best phone for the 8th Annual Gadgets Awards goes to the Samsung Galaxy S II, beating out other phones like the Apple iPhone 4S, HTC Sensation, Nokia Lumia 800 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray.

The award-selection process involved shortlisting five devices for the category and then choosing the best out of them based on the opinion of panel of “elite judges” including members of British newspapers, leading websites and television channels. Besides this, they took input from around 100 journalists and, of course, readers of their website.

Pocket-Lint, sadly, did not mention any specific reasons for choosing the Galaxy S II over other nominees. Sure, the GS II has an amazing, large display, a powerful camera and great design, but the iPhone 4S has a smaller, but sharper display, an even-more powerful camera and, according to some, a better looking design (which may not be as durable, though).

Still, our readers must keep in mind that, well, this award has been given by this one weblog. Sure, Pocket-Lint isn’t exactly an unknown blog, but it’s no authority on smartphones either. As awesome as the Galaxy S II is and as much as I love mine, the iPhone 4S is completely obliterating it with record-breaking sales all over the world. It also has critically acclaimed, unique features like Siri, the best-in-class camera and dual-core chip, so it’s got a lot going for it as well.

Facebook Messenger For Windows 7 – Coming Soon

Facebook is currently preparing a desktop app for its Messenger offering, with a limited allocation of users already testing the integrated IM client.

More than just being your bread-and-butter chat application, it will also allow users to check the Ticker Feed and of course, those all-important Notifications.
The perceived idea is to keep users engaged at all times, (great news, then, for those procrastinating students), and prevent the layer upon layer of windows/tabs opening at one time as users stalk get their social networking fix.
There’s no doubt that the desktop-based client has the credentials to become an instant hit, and the screenies don’t look too shabby, either:

After the F8 showcase towards the end of September, Mark Zuckerberg and Co. announced a complete overhaul of Facebook, introducing Timeline amongst other features; and now it seems Phase 2 of the Facebook World Domination bid is in full effect.
Just yesterday, we reported on the news that a HTC-created Facebook Phone codenamed Buffy was in motion, and although that particular move isn’t expected to bear fruit until 2013 at the very earliest, it does emphasize the scale of effort by Facebook to cement its position as far and away the world’s most-used social network.
Having gotten names to profiles, it’s no secret that Facebook’s next big push is to get everybody chatting. The standalone Messenger apps rolled out some months ago for Android, Blackberry and iOS – despite each having integrated chat on their respective original Facebook apps – further indicates Facebook’s IM directive.
With most Instant Messengers (GTalk, Windows Live and the like) all presenting a desktop-based argument, it will be interesting to see – with 800+ million devotees – just how well it catches on – that’s of course, if it does.
If you’re itching to get your hands on it, unfortunately, it’s not a public beta as such – a segment of the Facebook population (through probably not-so-random-sampling), have been selected to join the test group, and are notified via what else but a little red notification from Facebook itself.
As such, there’s no public download link, although as has been the case before, there could be a workaround, and we’ll have the lowdown if someone does find a sneaky way in.
Oh yes, and it’s Windows 7 only.
