  • We have been receiving further more and even more information regarding the infamous (for now) HTC Vision or G1 Blaze, and it is on the way of shaping up of being the first device with HSPA+ from T-mobile.


    As previously reported by us, the Emerald of project might be an adorned launches of both the the MyTouch 3G HD and Vision, it seems that the name is kept all to itself by HD.



    First off, these names like G1 Blaze and Vision looks like to be murdered off, and new device will be renowned with the name of T-Mobile G2 now and Not at all the G2 Touch. The roadmap of T-mobile which was leaked pegs the G1 successor’s launch for the month of September, where it has been referred to by them as the Vanguard. What is even much more exciting about it is supposedly is that this G2 should have been running the stock of all the androids, which apparently is meaning much faster updates than existing any other unlocked cellphone over there, at least theoretically.



    With the version of Android 2.2, several bodies out there still believe that this is the very first time that no one actually needs any skin of custom on that very device, even if all the aesthetic appeals might not be at the par with those skins just as such HTC will sense. I still thought that the stock of Android would apparently be quite dead right after the sipping Nexus one is stopped, and the Unlocked Motorola Droid ( 2 ) which is actually using the UI like Motoblur. We are entirely glad that we have seen that HTC has not given up completely the stock of Android.


    It has been said that the G2 will come certainly with a CPU of 800Mhz MSM7230, which might not be the much fastest in the entire of the Android land.

  • Not so long ago Nintendo, the renowned Japanese, gaming company set consumer markets ablaze with its Gameboy Advance and subsequent Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii releases. Profits at that point of time for the Japanese firm had sky rocketed through the record breaking sales of their subsequent platform releases. However the most shocking reports to surface about the company was the whole plan for a proper Nintendo cellphone. The rumours that had been sparked at the time, had set gaming enthusiasts buzzing with excitement, for in all practicality it meant that an incredible gaming oriented phone was on its way. However the rumours and in effect the plans died down.



    Now detailed reports are surfacing that the rumours were actually true and there had indeed been plans for a Nintendo phone which died at the Research and Development headquarters of Nintendo in Japan. The reports claim that the whole idea was started when Nokia initiated contact with Nintendo over plans for a joint effort in releasing the rumoured device. R&D apparently took serious initiative in moving forward with plans for the same. The blueprints were readied and a board approval impending further steps were about to be taken when the whole idea was rejected by the board.



    Apparently Nokia’s parallel failure with its gaming platform form the N-gage played a catalyzing role in the board’s decision to reject the plans which had reached a sufficiently advanced stage. This is a pity because today Apple and Google with their Unlocked  iPhone4 and Android respectively are laughing away to the bank with complete dominance over the mobile gaming industry. To think if Nintendo had pushed through with their plans the mobile gaming industry would have looked entirely different altogether. Imagine the sheer delight of phone and gaming enthusiasts considering the options they would have had at hand!

  • The big red continues to expand its horizons evermore with each passing day. This time the target for Vodafone’s rapid expansion plan is TIM Brasil. TIM Brasil is a unit of Telecom Italia and is one of the four companies that ply in the Latin American country where 80% of the total 190 million population keep a mobile phone in hand. This comes in the wake of acquisitions by Telefonica, a Spanish wireless carrier and Portugal Telecom in the Brazilian market. Telecommunications over the years has become one of the more dynamic industries in the fast-growing Brazilian economy in the past one year. This has happened as a direct result of the resilience of the job market and a steadily growing total family income. A trend has emerged amongst the bigger groups who are now gradually acquiring the smaller rivals in order to integrate services and monopolize services like pay-TV and Internet connections



    According to a local newspaper, that goes by the name, O Estado de Sao Paulo, Vodafone held negotiations with Telefonica, a company holding an indirect stake in the parent unit Telecom Italia. The Spanish company Telefonica has a stake in Telco, a consortium that has a 24.5% stake in Telecom Italia.


    Recently there was a report that Telefonica were looking to acquire a local service provider Vivo and in the process the local regulatory board intended to force them to let go of their stake in TIM Brasil to avoid a clash of interests. Vodafone in turn intend to acquire this very stake in TIM Brasil. A complicated process is involved in the matter and experts believe that the deal will eventually fail to materialize but reports in the press believe the deal will be in place soon. If this is true, then the largest telecom company in the world might just be that bit larger soon.

  • It seems to be the beef between Adobe and Apple is not that too as Adobe recently has released an updated Express app of Photoshop for the iPad and iPhone from Apple.



    The app, already available on the handsets of Android, has changed its name to Photoshop Express from Photoshop Mobile. This is the first to be much compatible with the iPad from Apple. And it contains a large screen which should help to make editing photo easier.


    There also exists a user interface which is updated for the Photoshop Express by Adobe for the iPad and iPhone from apple, and visually it is quite a lot pleasing.


    Do not expect that it will be having all the features of the Photoshop of desktop fully, as this iPhone app from apple enables only the very basics such as rotation, cropping and another few effects. Still, it has been a very solid way in case of editing photos of yours on your go.


    I also think it was summed up by a farmer best in the review he made on iTunes: If you expect features like Photoshop, then this app must be forgotten. What so ever, if you search for basic transforming and editing of pictures on the iPhone, this very app is truly cool. And above all it is absolutely free!



    The Express app of Photoshop makes its presence just being the relationship between Apple and Adobe and it continues being tenuous, at its best. The crux of that very beef is such that Apple has no desire for having Flash on iPad or Unlocked iPhone4 from apple just because Steve Jobs has got a pretty strong belief that in case of issues of performance it is actually not at all right for the entire platform.


    Adobe hence has countered such that the lacking of Flash could strongly hurt its business.

  • The CEO of News Corp. Mr. Rupert Murdoch stated that he would like to introduce the digital content of newspaper to the Apple iPhone, Android, and the Apple iPad in a different and attractive way. The launching date has not been declared yet. But it’s been told that the Managing Editor of The New York Post will be in charge of this new strategy.


    Murdoch is hopeful that the adolescents will love this new idea of presenting the news and it will be a huge success for them.


    This new application, which will have the free access, will be far better than the present iPad application of Wall Street journal. Though some of the newspaper companies found it troublesome, but it’s true that this is the best possible way to convince those people who are apparently new.


    There are some other news companies like USA Today and the New York Times who have the same Unlocked iPhone4 and iPad applications and now News Corp. joins the queue. But it is to be noted that this apps apparently cause no good to these companies.


    So these newspaper companies are now looking for some brighter applications as the journal, New York Times, already came with a new application through which publishers are enabled to open an application without putting their money. The NY times will profit from the license fees which they will get from it.


    But it is not going to be that easy for the News Corp. as the existing specimens are not exactly what is required to support its bigger overhead. So the News Corp. needs to find out a solution and let’s watch how they find it!

  • SMS2130 is the new product launched in the upcoming Latin American cell phone TV market by Siano Mobile Silicon, the much talked about cell phone TV receiver chip maker. The chip supports the ISDB-T technology, this technology is also known as ISDB-T “1-Seg.”



    The chip suits the exact needs of the of the market of that region as it introduces new optimization levels in cost and performance


    Though the SMS2130 will initially launch in Brazil, but soon it will be available in the other Latin American countries including Chile and Argentina.


    Until now nearly 40 cities in Brazil enjoy mobile TV, which covers a population of 70 million or more. Currently the services are available free of cost. There are plans of introducing more advance interactive services from 2011.



    Availability wise… a few customers are already enabled to get sample chips and Siano stated that they are already engaged in developing electronic products with some of their customers. They are making electronic products including cell phones using the new chip, SMS2130.


    It is worth mentioning that SMS2130 is the first of its kind in a totally new product family for the Latin American market. Though Latin America is an unpredictable place with an even more unpredictable market, if Siano can sell their product well it should result in them making a huge profit. Siano-based products have been selling in high volumes in Brazil for a few months now under the leading cell phone operators such as Vivo, Claro and TIM so it can be presumed that their new brand will also prosper. But we have to wait to find out how the story unfolds.

  • To let you know about the latest news regarding the Sprint’s Samsung Unlocked ( Epic 4G), you must be delighted to hear the fact that this brand new model from Samsung is available if you preorder it!



    The model, which costs 249USD, will arrive on 31st August and surely it’s going to rock! If you are keen to have the Samsung Epic 4G in your hand, you must preorder it to be sure of getting it on the very first day it hits the shop.


    There are several reasons why you must have a Samsung Epic 4G. It has a magnificent screen which is of 4 inch and you are bound to get hypnotized by this. Though being a part of the Unlocked Galaxy S, Samsung Epic 4G is different from the for some of its extraordinary traits. It is evident from the name that it is accessible with an accelerated speed to the data network of the next-generation. You may have noticed that EVO 4G has this same orientation and it is lightning fast.


    The Android device of the Sprint Samsung Epic 4G has the keypad with the QWERTY formation. It helps you to read and write messages with ease.  There’s a camera at the front side of the Epic which, with the help of applications such as Fring, makes video calls just like the Unlocked Apple iPhone 4 does. It also includes a Hummingbird processor of 1GHz along with GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a 5-megapixel camera.


    Now the question is, will the Epic be able to fight with the other super phones? We are all impressed by the Apple iPhone 4; the Droid from Motorola has its own fan following, the line up from HTC is surely going to rock. So keep your eyes open to have a look at the Shootout of Super phones, and be aware of the Epic story!

  • Vlingo, the maker of a popular Voice command application for a number of cell phone platforms, responded to the launch of Google’s Voice Actions application, this was done by offering Vlingo’s Android application free of cost. Vlingo stated in its blog that its Voice command application is better than the Google version in many respect and also offers similar functionality. In order to compete with the application by Google, Vlingo has now started to offer the Android version free of cost so that it is easier for the user to compare the features of the products.


    Vlingo states that their product has advantages over the one from Google. Vlingo hints, Google has a constraint because it has to promote its services and other content while being a separate developer, Vlingo can take the best of Google and the other services and mix them up.



    Vlingo’s Voice command application does provide some features that that cannot be found in Google’s Voice Actions. These features include Safe Reader, this application reads incoming email messages and texts. Vlingo is available on many platforms like Unlocked Blackberry phone and the iPhone and also on more than one version of Android. Though Google’s voice actions may be attractive for Android, the only Android version in which it is available is 2.2.


    So… a few questions appear before us. Will Android users choose Vlingo over voice actions now that Vlingo is available free of cost? How will everybody take Vlingo’s move to offer such a huge discount and make its app free? It does speak a lot when a company actually tries to compete rather than bad mouth its opponent.

  • San Francisco is the city where most of the people have the Apple’s unlocked iPhone4. But now it is becoming challenging for the aesthetics based cellular antennas mainly because of the new proposal which is placed at the Planning Commission.


    S.F. Examiner stated that the newly proposed rules and regulations will ban the utility poles which are new and used only for antennas. According to the rules and regulations, you can install mini antennas but cell phone manufacturers will have to get permission before they fix any equipment on public property.


    San Francisco already has many complaints regarding the network coverage of the Apple iPhone and it seems that this proposal won’t help much to improve it! Though AT&T, who sees after the network coverage, did whatever they could to provide a better coverage but the government in San Francisco didn’t give an approval.


    We don’t want San Francisco to lose its beauty due to the wild run of the cell phone manufacturers. But there must be a solution to solve the coverage problem without destroying the beauty of the city. It is so easy to make a statement that AT&T is not doing anything which they must do to improve the Apple iPhone coverage. But boy who said they haven’t done anything yet? It would be better to recommend a solution rather than criticizing them with all your energy.


    If you do want a better technology for your Apple iPhone4 unlocked handset then do give a call to your local agent and ask him to install new towers and for that you need to get some time out of your busy schedule.


    To get rid of the problem, you’ll have to be active. Show your responsibility, stop being lazy, pay heed to the complicated situation where you are in and bring out a solution.

  • Dr. Ataken Peker, the founder of Liquidmetal Technologies said that in the making and design of Apple’s new wireless antennas Liquidmetal’s shapeless metal alloys might be used. Dr. Ataken Peker pointed out at an interview which was held by Cult of Mac, that the properties which Liquidmetal hold, makes it a very useful material for an antenna. This can be a reason behind Apple’s signing of a broad licensing agreement with the company.


    Commonly illustrated as metallic glass, the different alloys that go into the making Liquidmetal provides great strength at minimum weights, utmost durability or wear resistance, and the softening temperature being low, it is easier to mould it into designs and shapes that are complex in nature. Liquidmetal is already being used in various consumer products such as sports equipments especially skis, golf clubs etc. jewellery, and also in electronic equipments where it appears in USB thumb drive casings, MP3 players, and cell phones. The wireless modem, Verizon USB727, which is famous for its excellent reception capability uses Liquidmetal technology in its antenna. Moreover, Apple also uses the same technology in the newly launched Magic Trackpad.



    Apple may not be eyeing for Liquidmetal to be solely used in the making of the simple antenna, it may as well be used in the seamless, complex casings of products such as iPod, unlocked  iPhone4 and the iPad. Moreover this technology can also be used to make novel casings that receive radio signals. The Bezel Antenna that is used in iPhone 4 can be replaced by an outer casing that receives signals thus making the whole casing itself an antenna. Liquidmetal has properties that allow it to be bended without fatigue or erosion of any sort so it can also be used to make one piece foldable devices too.
