  • Spirit and its manufactures were in the doldrums with falling profits, bleeding subscribers to Apple’s unlocked Iphone4 but it has changed quite a bit since the inclusion of the Sprint HTC EVO 4G. Spirit’s run at the markets and the smartphone industry seemed to be in tatters and their business almost to a dead end but for the latest HTC EVO 4G. Spirit had previously tried to fight its arch enemy, its nemesis Apple through various means, for example the device like the Palm Pre (which by the way was a total failure). Apple and its iPhone and their improved versions seemed just too hot to handle. But this new Android by Spirit has seemingly breathed life to the company. Sprint added 111,000 net customers for the second quarter of 2010.


    The smartphone Sprint HTC EVO 4G has been clearly making waves. It’s been rumoured to become one of the best, if not, the best smartphone of its times. Though it has been selling like hot cakes, yet at times the HTC EVO 4G is difficult to acquire from the stores


    Spirit was reportedly at a loss of $760 million in its first quarter of the year and it had lost around 22800 subscribers. Spirit has now a total of 48.2 million subscribers. Though the company was on the downhill it seems their latest adventure in the form of Sprint HTC EVO 4G did pay off and it managed to keep the losses to a bare minimum.



    It seems good times lie ahead for this company. There had been frequent complaints by customers about their notorious customers service and their imperfectness, but now with the surge in profits the company has seen a dramatic change in its personnel. This year in the last quarter the company was reported to having its best-ever contract churn rate of 1.85%.

  • Rumor has it that T-Mobile is all set to launch their new MyTouch 3G as anticipated as an Android phone are rearing up making it count by getting started in the blog world. This new gadget could actually mark the company’s first real and serious move in releasing handsets which the carrier’s 4G networking, which has enough material in it to outdo Sprint’s 4G offerings. There has been a rumored image leak of what the new MyTouch 3G might look like came with a leaked photo and as the rumor exists this might just be the same that is all set to make its launch. Some might differ in their opinions that T-Mobile was getting serious on the Android smartphones with their Samsung Vibrant which is a variant of the Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S handsets by T-Mobiles, but when you consider the fact that every other carrier is taking aid of the same family in getting a device, it would be very difficult to actually consider that the offers presented by Magenta was good enough to make its own mark.



    Before the Vibrant actually came along, the only handsets that were anywhere near good were HTC HD2, which despite their Windows Mobile operating system made quite a run and the Slide MyTouch which was powered by Android and seriously none had enough fire in them to compete in the recent market scenario. And if the rumors are true them this new release by T-Mobile, the MyTouch 3G will spearhead Magenta’s initiative in such unlocked handsets. As the leaked pictures might suggest the MyTouch 3G looks quite similar to Slide. The screen on it is arguably larger than that of Slide’s and might just touch the four inch milestone. And there is a fat chance that SLCD display will get a role to play in this phone. Among the other features that count, it has a front camera and a normal QWERTY keypad which is a slide out one. As this new handset is all set to blaze off into the market, its success can only be speculated.

  • We have all become quite aware of the mid air ‘adventures’ and the sudden boisterous and cocky nature of a few flight passengers. In fact, news of flirting and tweaking at the air hostess’ is well known. There had been many a complaints by the air hostess’ that they have been ill treated and misbehaved with by the passengers. Sometimes the hormonal surge of such people doesn’t even fail to venture into irritating their fellow co passengers. As always such cases have been seriously dealt with once the flight hits base. Hefty fine and short terms in prison have been the outcome of such perverted dastardly behaviour on flights, but the case which we are discussing here is completely different and quite shocking.


    While people are testing the new features, they are also pushing the limits of the smartphone to do their dirty work. Joseph Pereira, a fifty five year old veteran flight pilot for the united States Airways. On the morning of 24th June a fifteen year old girl walked onto the deck. He fancied his chance with his smartphone, testing its skills on clicking pictures of the girl in awkward positions. When the mobile was confiscated, the pictures revealed that they were taken at what looks like from under her skirt.


    And yes! You have like everyone else have guessed correctly at what he intended to do with those photos. Well he was to use his smartphones connectivity features to its optimum.


    But here lies the irony! Before this pilot joined the US Airways, he had been coaching a girls High School Softball team. And he doesn’t seem to have any kind of complaints or negative reports in his tenure of thirteen years. Well soaring heights probably makes people aim higher or as in this case aim ‘lower’.

  • Motorola’s streak of launching new devices one after the other and they have in fact announced that they will soon be releasing around twenty Android phones this year. There is a new collection of phones which will be released soon which comprises of small portrait slide phones which are really similar to the Unlocked Palm Pre, all the while retaining the Droid characters and properties. We have recently got some spy pictures of these phones which show us that these are going to be strong Android phones. Let us look at the basics of this new line of phones.



    Contrary to all of the smartphones present in the market which are tending to the large phones with big touch screens, the Motorola unlocked phones which they are coming out with in the market are targeted to the market. The cell phone market has been focusing very much recently on the smartphone market but Motorola has remembered the lower end customers with a large number of budget phones like the Backflip, CLIQ and Devour. Although we find it somewhat unlikely, this phone may just make its way to Verizon.


    We are not really upbeat about the design but we will reserve our judgment for the time when we actually do get the phones with us. Actually, the truth is that we were not big fans of this original Motorola Droid unlocked handset but in fact it has grown on us and we have slowly started looking into how this phone might be. The keyboard layout is pretty good but the screen might be somewhat cluttered for the taste of the Android fans who are used to a larger screen. This phone will not be coming only with built in UI but will sport Motoblur and the likes. Keep your eyes peeled for more news about this new line.

  • Given the technological advancements in the recent years almost everything is possible. And of the many that already exists, there is still one more feather to be added to the hat. For, if you thought texting from cell phone while under water was impossible, here is an innovation that allows you to text even while inside a submarine. A buoy of length of around forty inches helps transmitting texts while you are under water. This innovation can revolutionize SMS transmitting when under water.



    The mechanism is plain and simple and easy to guess. The buoy is attached to the main body of the submarine by huge lengths of cables which if need be can be easily severed. Lockheed Martin was attributed for designing the whole system and step two would be to further improvise on the design and make it even smarter. That would imply cutting the cords and implementing a system that can resemble the working of a sonar system. Such an instrument can even be dropped from planes if need be.



    The more advantageous aspects are however that the submarine becomes less threatened or vulnerable and this new technology guarantees safety. At least it should be safer than the more traditional methods. At the present moment however, the submarine will have to elevate to almost the periscope level if it wants to communicate. The readily available communication that this system guarantees is far more prospective. Although there are many who are still skeptical about the whole idea, it seems to have promise and the idea is definitely bright. So all in all this can again turn out to be a real promising technique and particularly sailors under water would be more than happy to actually avail it. The essential parts look good, for instance the safety of those inside the submarine is increased and they can, if this is put to practical use, can keep in touch with anyone.

  • Steve Jobs blamed San Francisco to be too slow in advancement and says it takes up to three years to get a cell tower built in San Francisco. This might shed new light into the enigma of poor reception in San Francisco. The local Government is to be blamed instead of AT & T according to Steve Jobs. The network building problem was brought up by Steve Jobs in the recent ‘Antennagate’ conference.



    AT & T has been making numerous efforts including great investments in order to better the network but it has been futile in places like San Francisco because of lack of support from the Government. The lack of tech press in San Francisco is another reason for this particular problem going unnoticed. Although AT & T may be responsible to a certain extent in not being able to imagine the demand created by Apple Unlocked iphone 4 but according to Steve Jobs, the blame should be shouldered by the Government.


    Jobs expressed his support for AT & T saying that the company has made several moves to better the network by putting up cellular towers but if they are not allowed to do what is required then all the initiative goes to waste. There is no scope for investment if the local Governments are reluctant about all this. This is particularly strange for Jobs as he says that most people in the Government of San Francisco own an Apple iphone.


    Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski may be the ideal man to better this anomalous condition. The ‘shot clock’ method devised by him can be the best way to get the infrastructure ready in little time. This may be the last resort for cell phone carriers like AT & T to be able to improvise and invest on creating as many cell towers as possible in order to better the reception quality in places such as San Francisco.

  • The most awaited Android device which has been slated for a summer release in July is soon to hit the markets and customers will get their chance to get their hands on this one very soon. The company has been engaged in a strong advertising campaign which had been built to create a big hype around this unlocked cellphone. Well they have done it again with the new promotional video for this phone which has come out on the internet. This gets the viewers attention but funnily does not have any information about the phone itself. However this is a great gimmick nonetheless.


    In terms of the features, the Verizon Unlocked Motorola Droid ( X ) is one great device and the specs that it carries are much ahead of the other competitors which are there in the market. The large 4.3 inch touchscreen is genuinely good. 1 GHz OMAP processor makes operations on this phone really smooth. Other than this, there is also a great 8 megapixel camera which has a dual LED flash which means taking photographs will be a nice experience on this one. The video recording on this camera is of pretty good quality and its HDMI port offers a 720p HD video and picture streaming to a television screen or any monitor which can be externally connected to this device. This is really important for the people who want good video specs on their smartphone. Other than this, there is GPS, Wi-Fi connectivity and a MicroSD slot on the phone which is sure to satisfy the most discerning user.


    Although whatever little reviews which we have laid our hands on is not really excellent, but we sure hope that Verizon gives us more of a reason to go and pick up this phone which we otherwise think is pretty good.

  • Femtocell developers, Ubiquisys, have managed to round up a whopping $9 million through extra funding. This was primarily led by 5 Continents Consulting Group (5CCG) and needless to say this event has been quite outstanding. Other prominent companies were involved in this grand event, which has led to Ubiquisys bagging this enormous amount of money. This money is going to spend wisely in developing new innovations in femtocell technology. This can eventually lead to femtocell being deployed in different significant places where it can be put to productive use.



    Ubiquisys has been proving their quality for a long time and was the first company to break the $100 price for femtocells. The possibilities of using femtocells have become unbelievable and thus Ubiquisys can indeed be of immense benefit to everyone.


    Ubiquisys has interesting projects coming up to get the maximum out of the femtocells. The prospects look bright and they are sure to bring about several new changes if the $9 million is spent wisely. They have always delivered quality whenever they were tested and they are slowly becoming bigger and better. Femtocell technology has really taken off since the work done by Ubiquisys. They deserved this and they will surely put the money to good use in proper time.


    5CCG’s Founder and Managing Partner, Michael Bornhäusser has been quite vocal in the support of Ubiquisys and is highly optimistic about the future of Ubiquisys. He believes Ubiquisys has become a worldwide phenomenon and have started to deliver a lot lately. Femto market has really been in the rise and Ubiquisys has been instrumental in providing such a situation. It has superior technology and is possibly on the verge of making history. The money will be of great value if it can be used to better the femtocell technology.

  • It might sound a little outlandish, but American Eagle is giving out free smartphones if you try on some of their jeans. This is true as they have just launched an offer where you can try on their garments and you will be eligible to fill in a form and can choose from a huge selection of smartphones which you can have for free providing you sign a two year long contract with the carrier. This will help you save a minimum of $100 in the least and it is definitely a good offer if you had been looking to buy a new smartphone as it is.


    The phones that they are offering are the HTC Aria, LG Ally and even Blackberry phones of the nature of the  Blackberry  Unlocked Curve 8520 and the Bold. Other than these, there are also the Motorola Cliq XT, Backflip and the Devour. Therefore, we are really excited with this rather nice deal the company is giving. Although we still think that a pair of Levis is unbeatable. So what you have to do is that you try on the jeans and you will get the details that you will need to go online. Register and select the phone that you want and the carrier, yes they allow you to pick your carrier and all that is left for you to do is to wait for FedEx delivery to get it to your home.


    Fred Grover, executive vice president of marketing in American Eagle, has mentioned how they want to ensure that their customers are satisfied and go back home with not only a good pair of jeans but also a new smartphone. Other than this, the company has also said that they hope that this will show how confident they are in their line of garments and it will surely bring in more valued customers to their side.

  • Although the Unlocked  Samsung S Galaxy has released and we have seen it a number of times, the Vibrant has just been released on the T-Mobile. It has been released just a short time back and will be out on the Android platform. The design of this phone will be as the standard Samsung Galaxy S model. The Vibrant will have a small bump on the back and carry the Android four key lay out rather than the standard three key set up. The Vibrant is one of the most loaded phones in terms of features and the apps that it will be carrying.



    This Android Device has been dubbed as the closest to phone with the features which are the closest to the performance of the iPhone 4 Unlocked gadget  in terms of the output features. The features on this phone which really makes it stand out, is the neat Hummingbird processor and the brilliant super AMOLED display which is the closest that one can get to the Retina Display that the iPhone 4 has. In fact, if initial responses are to be considered, this display is one of the most striking features of this phone. We were also very impressed with the sunlight testing that we did ourselves. The Hummingbird processor is well complimented by the Samsung TouchWiz UI which is a much more advanced form of the software that was provided on the Samsung Behold 2. The Samsung Vibrant is probably the best phones from the Android line in recent times.


    Although the process speed is pretty fast and good on this phone, there is still something missing. The durable feel is still lacking on this phone as was the case with many of the other releases by Samsung. However, this is hardly a deterrent as the phones which were released were not the production models, one only hopes that Samsung cleans up the probable flaws in this otherwise great phone.
