  • President Barrack Hussein Obama has introduced many things since his rise to office, and they have been enforced to a great extent also. His most recent enforcement is to boost mobile services for the good of the people.




    President Obama, along with his colleagues in the White House have issued a memorandum, which asks the executive departments and agencies to boost mobile services, so much so that 500 MHz of spectrum will be made available within the next ten years. The spectrum made available will be coming from commercial, as well as federal bands. The memorandum has been issued to the Secretary of Commerce, and the Secretary of Commerce is to work together with the Federal Communications Commission to make Obama’s drive possible.



    According to the President, the era in global wireless technology can only advance if there are more spectrums available. There will be multiple new developments in the fields of wireless devices, networks, new applications, which will help in the progress of economy. But to experiment with these devices and to successfully use them, more spectrums are needed. Since there is a shortage of spectrum, the available quantity should be used more efficiently.




    There has been the issue of scarcity of licensed spectrum available. No new operators are being able to provide wireless broadband services due to shortage of licensed spectrum. And if unlicensed spectrum is used, then there could be no guarantee of either connectivity or that of quality. As more and more people are using unlocked  smartphones and other wireless devices to access the web on the go, it could pose a serious problem for providers. The President’s drive will be a beacon of hope for consumers and providers alike.



    The Obama-led government sees the phone Internet as a major help in bridging the digital divide. The digital divide is in rural areas mostly, and Obama wants to overcome these shortcomings and encourage jobs and innovation.

  • If accessing social networking web pages is what you are primarily looking for in your phone then there is good news for you. Verizon wireless has decided to drop the prices of the Microsoft Kin cell  phones which allow easy access to social networking portals.





    Prices of the Microsoft Kins phones will change as follows



    • · The Kin One will now cost $29 in comparison to its earlier $50 pricing
    • · The Kin Two price will be cut down to half it original to around $50


    However we honestly feel that this will not go a long way in really helping the sales of these handsets to that extent. For the customer, it is important to note that all these handsets do come with the usual two year contract and additional data charges. When you buy these phones, you will be committed to a two year data plan of $30 per month which is comparable to the



    These phones are pretty good in the respect that they allow you to upload your pictures and even videos onto your profiles. However the drawbacks sadly for these nifty phones are numerous, such as;



    • · You cannot download any applications at all hence no games, and
    • · You cannot access special Twitter and other such special clients.



    On the brighter side, there are some updates slated for release from Microsoft which will enable YouTube access and social networking capabilities however we really think that this is not enough. In fact, Microsoft’s soon to be released smart phone platform the Windows Phone 7 which is coming out in a few months time. This sadly will be a killer for many of the phones like the kin. However on the bright side, the positive aspects of the Kin will find its way into the Windows Phone 7.

  • Nokia is soon going to be launched the still unnamed RM-626 which if early reports are to be believed, is a variation of the soon to be shipped Unlocked Nokia ( N8 ). This new phone will be either classified as N9 or may be as a part of the C series going by the C0 sign on the top left hand corner of the phone. We have managed to check out videos which show off this phone.



    Earlier Negri had given us a tantalizing look at this phone by giving a set of three photographs of a prototype phone from Nokia. However they have given us a four minute hands on video of this phone. After watching this video, we have seen that there is C0-00 marked on the back of the phone, although the phone setting says N00. However this is beside the point as this phone really succeeds in the features that it provides the users.



    In terms of looks, this phone looks really like the N8 but with only slight changes. It is thinner and has a sliding key pad which feels really smooth and dependable. Its keys look similar to the Nokia  N97 Unlocked Gadget which is not necessarily a good thing. However, on the plus side, it has 4 rows of keys rather than the 3 of the earlier. This therefore means that the space bar is finally where it should be. The RM-626 therefore will be a hit among the QWERTY fans.


    Although the N8 comes with a 12 megapixel camera with a Xenon flash, The RM-626 has an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, however one need not be discouraged as the camera quality is not really that bad. As for the software, this phone seems to be using the Symbian^3 platform which means that the MeeGo and Maemo are going to be disappointed. The prices and availability is still unknown to us.

  • Some time ago it was announced that Samsung would release its latest mobile device in the market. Today, it has also been announced that this new mobile will be made available in US through AT&T. If you are planning on getting your hands on the Wave, you will just be in time for the world cup as a new game has been released for the Wave called Kickball AR Juggling. Powered by the Bada operating system, Kickball AR Juggling is the perfect augmented reality game that you need to keep pace with the current World Cup happening in South Africa. In this game, you can make use of the entire display screen to juggle the ball virtually with your legs. All you have to do is to simply point the camera at your feet, start the game and start juggling.



    Even if this game is not meant for you, we are sure that you will be able to find something on the Samsung Wave that is suited to your needs. Considering the fact that it is to be fitted with a screen having a 3.3 inch display and a Super AMOLED display, meaning that you can take it out directly in sunlight, you might want to purchase this device. At the same time, there is a screenresolution of around 480 X 800 pixels which is very bright, even under bright lights. The Samsung Wave will be the first mobile phone to run the latest operating system, the Samsung  Unlocked (Bada). Through this platform, it will become possible for developers to create and share their own applications. In fact, Samsung predicts that the Bada will eventually convert feature phones into smartphones.

  • It was recently announced that the text CS service of Cellular South would be made available to all Advance Pay and unlocked smartphone subscribers. Through this service it would become possible for customers of Cellular South to ask any questions to representatives through text messages. Suchquestions would then be answered by the representatives, again through text. Says a representative of Cellular South, “We make it a point to answer any queries a customer might have via text within 5 minutes of receiving it. Should the answer be such that it cannot fit into the 160 character limit of an SMS, we immediately call up the customer to provide a solution to his problem. We might even decide to move the customer to another resource we feel would be able to better serve him. Our text services are available five days a week from Monday till Friday during work hours. This text representative- customer service is really an extension to our previous groundbreaking online Discover Stores through which users could gain access to various knowledge bases and fast customer assistance. We are also planning on introducing a ‘Do not text and drive’ message in all our communications to spread awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.”



    In the past, such text based services of asking various questions to representatives was only available to HTC users that had the HTC Unlocked Hero. Although such a service has still not been implemented by Cellular South on Blackberry’s, you can expect in near future a similar mechanism. Considering the fact that text messaging has now become the way of life for most users all over the world, it is not at all surprising to find that some carriers are extending such services to even their representatives to aid users. In fact, through such text messaging, it is much easier to get a point across and to answer customers directly.

  • If you are the user of any unlocked mobile device having an AMOLED screen, you too would face certain problems when trying to use the phone in direct sunlight. In other words, it is nearly impossible to read anything on phones such as the HTC Desire that makes use of an AMOLED screen. In a view to combat this downfall of AMOLED screens, Samsung has recently released their new Super AMOLED screens that are not only much thinner, but at the same time can also deliver a much brighter and crispier image when directly held in the sun. Samsung conducted a recent test to determine which was better; whether it was the regular AMOLED display or the Super AMOLED screens releasing a video that pitted two mobile phones against each other, the HTC Desire that had a regular AMOLED screen and the Samsung Galaxy S that had a Super AMOLED screen.



    The 7 minute long video shows both devices having their brightness at maximum and the position of the phones is switched around so as to ensure fairness. Under direct sunlight, the HTC mobile is practically worthless as it is nearly impossible to see anything apart from the big clock display on the screen. On the other hand, the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S Super AMOLED screen had a much clearer display, allowing users the ability of seeing nearly perfectly.



    Although neither display would require any backlight, thereby prolonging the battery life of the phone, Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen fared better when it came to color saturation and contrast of the two screens. Considering the fact that the Galaxy S has an incredibly large 4 inch screen, it makes sense to have it equipped with a Super AMOLED display having better clarity. Apart from the display of the Galaxy, the phone will support enhanced graphics and be powered by a 1GHz processor.
