Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 leaked, says it’ll arrive later this month

Samsung Galaxy Mini 2 leaked, says it'll arrive later this month

Whoa there, another phone leak? It could only be the run-up to Mobile World Congress. This time, it's Samsung that's let slip, and the not-particularly high-end Galaxy Mini 2. Mini in size, minor in specifications, it will purportedly arrive with a 3.3-inch display at 480 x 320 resolution, running Gingerbread on an 800MHz processor. Unfortunately, at that speed, don't expect to get any Adobe Flash action on this presumably entry-level phone. It'll be capable of HSDPA data speeds up to 7.2Mbps; add in a three-megapixel camera, 3GB of built-in storage and it's all starting to sound a bit 2008. GSM Arena's mole pegs it for a February release, so that could mean it sprints out ahead of MWC, but it'll find it hard to avoid the bright lights of Barcelona.

Weekly Webcomic Wrapup has some helpful tips

As you're all well aware, Valentine's Day is on Tuesday. If you weren't aware, don't panic: We've got some helpful tips for how to make the day a memorable experience, regardless of your relationship status. For instance! If you've got a significant other, head down to the grocery store and buy small square pretzels, Hershey's Hugs and Valentine's Day-themed M&M's. Stack the Hugs on top of the pretzels and the M&M's on top of the Hugs, and then place the stacks into an oven set to low heat until the M&M's melt into the tops of the Hugs. Refrigerate over night, and by morning you'll have a delicious homemade treat for your SO.

If you're single, go ahead buy the pretzels, Hugs and M&M's, but don't bother with any of the other steps. After all, who are you trying to impress? Shove modest handfuls of all three ingredients into your face until the pain in your heart is masked by a sugary layer of processed regret. Alternatively, you can check out our favorite webcomics from this week and vote for your favorites after the break.

Ask Engadget: Best tablets for students?

We know you've got questions, and if you're brave enough to ask the world for answers, here's the outlet to do so. This week's Ask Engadget inquiry is from a pair of guys called Joe on opposite sides of the planet that both need a tablet-based solution for their higher education woes. If you're looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

Joe from New Zealand writes:

I'm a second-year university student with a health issue that means I can't carry round heavy textbooks. I've been looking at tablets that I can use as a replacement for textbooks and paper notes. I think I need a tablet, pen and software combo that'll let me read, edit and annotate ebooks, PDFs and PowerPoints, have a day-long battery life, display A4 sheets and a camera that can take pictures of textbook pages -- but I've only got a budget of $600. Thanks!

Joe from America writes:

I'm enrolled in a class where my professor won't post his power points and talks too fast to handwrite notes. I'd type on a laptop, but I don't wanna be that guy. Is there a physical keyboard that's silent, or an on-screen keyboard that'll work as well as a real one?

Our thoughts skipped to the solid if underwhelming ThinkPad Tablet, which has a stylus input, decent camera and eight hour battery life. If you could get it to play nicely with Thanko's Silent EX keyboard, then both Joes would be happy -- but what do we know? They asked us so we could ask you guys, share your wisdom in the comments below.

Glimpse Street Fighter X Tekken’s premise in these character prologue trailers


The best part of any cross-over fighting game like Street Fighter X Tekken is the contrived, often-hilarious excuse of a plot used to unite two franchises under the same roof. Judging from these 6 prologue videos, however, SFxT may have the least ridiculous concept ever seen in a cross-over fighter.
