  • As the BlackBerry unlocked 9800 Torch and Motorola DROID 2 go head to head it seems that both AT&T as well as Verizon will be laughing their way to the bank. The DROID 2 is being distributed by Verizon and the time for pre-sale has passed with Verizon now stocking up the sets in their stores with people queuing to get their hands on one of these sets.



    The D2 is offered by Verizon for a price of $199 that is after calculating a $100 rebate for mail-in orders or an online discount for an agreement for a two year agreement. A purchase in-store will help you avoid any waiting for the deliveries of the set but will instantaneously increase your up-front costing. Simply put $100 rebates are valid for purchases made in-store and purchases made online only. Purchases from any third party retailer will cost you $299.


    For those looking to upgrade to the DROID 3 as soon as it releases, the 20 month default contract length will be a hindrance so as a recommendation go for the one-year contract which will allow you to upgrade before you apply for the next contract. Any one who owns the original Verizon Motorola Unlocked DROID will fill you in on the pains of an upgrade if you wish to do so in the contract period. Despite Verizon’s end-of-year upgradation plan, contractual issues prevent D1 owners who are on two-year agreements find an upgrade to D2 a difficult affair to say the least.



    A one year plan on the D2 will cost you $269 after a %100 rebate which is a $70 hike on the two year plan but the deal is you still get to upgrade to the D# with ease. A monthly plan will push the price of your D2 to a pricey $559. A termination fee of $350 applies for early cancellation of contract and a minimum requirement of a data plan worth $29.99 per month is also set up in the terms and conditions. Complications galore, but the set may well be worth it.

  • No one was surprised in the fact that the Android device from Garminfone has not really hit on T-Mobile hugely, or nor for any other carriers, as it is said by Garmin that the cell phone division of them has not also performed as per as their hopes expectations.



    The second quarter earnings of the company have given the following statement:


    Sales of their smartphone product of contributed category of $27M revenued in while the quarter is going on. The time When all these were below their plan, they had been working with utter aggression with T-Mobile as well as other around the world carriers on their appropriate positioning as well as pricing of their devices in random competitive space of smartphone.



    It did not surprise anybody terribly that the world is not set on fire by the Garminfone because several key features are missed by the device such as a jack of headphone! Even Android of modern version is also missing. Although to be fair enough, on-board maps are packed by it, so, quite unlike the Google Navigation, there is nothing to be worried about holding a continuous connection of Data for directions.


    One solid quarter was posted by Garmin overall but unfortunately we cannot see a well bode future until and unless it can really up its games with the smartphones. The market of the device of personal navigation device is eventually likely to be dwindled as many more people now carry smartphone and that too with similar kind of navigation capabilities. It is quite sure that the phone sets are not quite that good as those dedicated devices; still it has got more convenience as well as enough good features for most of the cases.


    Garmin to all its credits understands this well and it is making a team with Asus for producing Android phones.

  • MyTown, a location based check-in game from Booyah will now be made available in iTunes stores of countries like Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and so on. This is good news for a whole bunch of people, who had actually been waiting for this for quite some time now. It is not too much different from the location based check-ins from familiar elements such as Foursquare and Gowalla. Here, only a thick slather of game elements is added on top of the usual familiar material. The basic thing is altered just a little. Before, you had to go and check into a store to get your points. Here, it has almost been turned into the game of Monopoly, which allows you to ‘own’ the business that you decide to check into, and in its turn, charges rent from the other people who might be checking into that business. Another difference is that it puts out a list of the stores, according to specifications. The others, in this case tend to be friendlier towards the users with a huge variety of content.


    A ‘scavenger hunt’ was also launched by Booyah today. What you have to do is check into locations, as many times as you require, and in your turn will be able to discover parts of a map, holding the clues to a ‘key’ that has been hidden somewhere in the city. Once you get to this key, you will be given a code, that you will need to mail to Booyah. This will enter you into a contest and you stand to win iTunes gift cards, and if you are really lucky, even an unlocked  iPhone4. However, the contest is only for the American users and the new regions will just have to wait out their turn to get lucky.

  • Cell phone technology is of a lot of great help in a lot of sectors or fields of life, one of the most important being in the health sector. And here is another important reason on how cell phone technology is of service to the health.



    Jennifer Dyer, working as an endocrinologist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital is the city of Columbus in Ohio, United States of America, holds the MD, MPH degrees. She has been working for a long time with diabetes patients, particularly young diabetes patients, those who are in their adolescent stage and had been working hard to find a method to remind her patients about their own treatment activities at different points in time throughout the day.


    Finally, she was able to devise a method to do just that by developing an application for unlocked  iPhone4 users, who are in their adolescent stages, to remind them about them about their regular treatment activities, so that they do not miss a single dosage and mess with their treatment schedule. There was a pilot study just before this; examining if at all, text messages or SMS could be used to remind patients to take their dosages. This pilot study paved the way for the new application, which sends text messages to patients reminding them about their dosages. This pilot study found an increase in the adherence to treatment and improvement of blood glucose levels.


    Dyer then, made an application for a grant and decided to test the application on a more wide scale. If it is made available to the masses, it will allow the people in the management of their health, particularly for those suffering from chronic illnesses like diabetes. The idea is a wonderful thing and particularly for the youngsters, who are highly into text messages, is very helpful to them.

  • Recently AT&T had assured the investors that loss of unlocked iPhone4, or any such exclusive matter, will not adversely affect their earnings. Let us take a silent moment before we burst into maniacal, uncontrollable laughter. AT&T believes this honestly, and is not simply blowing smoke up and insulting its investors’ intelligence. However, you can be certain that there will definitely be rough seas ahead.


    Firstly, the iPhone has destroyed the market single-handedly in case of share of value. And in spite of android’s presence on several phone sets on every U.S. carrier, over a year was taken before it had the ability of eating away the market share of the iPhone. Every iPhone launch bested the last, demand for Apple smartphones has been too high to be available in bulk and waiting times for the phone grew even longer.


    I guess AT&T owns a C- in logic class. May be the cell phone carrier is forgetting the large chunk of iPhone consumers every year are mainly new customers (they are new users having switched from different carriers). The fact of a number of subscribers being on business or family plans might offer users a pause before they switch, but rumours regarding some Verizon iPhone are growing continually louder leaving behind many who still have not bought an iPhone as it is in the fickle network of AT&T.



    Other AT&T iPhone users were extremely vocal regarding switching the minute it comes on any other carrier — fees for cancellation be damned.


    The only negative that would have to be handled is the termination fee raised by AT&T just before the launch of iPhone 4 unlocked handset. Moving between $175 and $325 is nothing, but plenty of customers are nearing the closure of the contracts and might even be quite happy in paying the prorated termination fees so that they can grab an iPhone elsewhere.

  • Brace yourselves – Android tablet costs $150. This is not much of a surprise considering the fact that the Augen Gen of Touch 78 version, holding a pirated application of the Android is being sold with the help of Kmart. Android being freely distributed, one needs licenses to use some proprietary Google apps, and it looks like for these licenses, Augen didn’t want to spring any expenses.


    In order to receive the licenses of having Google applications (such as Google Maps, most likely the Market of android), one should be a part of Alliance for Open cellphone. Augen is not the reason for which some quirks in software are found. The Market of Android is present even in that tablet, but you will still not be allowed to download apps. Instead, applications can just be browsed until your eyes start bleeding. Although this is by far one of the best bargains you will ever be able to get, but a resistive feature of touch screen is quite bad. Apart from this, to add ice to this cake, the Market of Android has been installed only for viewing applications.



    Just when the Augen tablet became a cheap Shkit piece, it won’t let you have the ability to install apps from Market, and you got to be limited by the feature of resistive and sensitively pressure handler touch screen. But I wonder if there had been any way to perform some magic and enable ADB to push and pull, that will let you be allowed to install apps from the line of command. If one of them were to have success in it, this wouldn’t be that bad having the Gen of Touch 78 version. It is not being said that it would be so good though, it never would be that poor in quality. It goes to just show that really there is no desirable tablet of Android around yet; I hardly think as well that Dell’s Streak may fit the bill.

  • If anything has been learnt by me from numerous hours of mine playing the game Castlevania Puzzle in your unlocked iphone4, it is that just as something is not always what you are used to, it does not mean necessarily that it is a bad thing. A big gamble was taken by Konami by delivering just one puzzle game inside a package of Castlevania. Do you think that the gamble paid off?



    Castlevania Puzzle generally has you playing in the place of someone called Alucard and you are supposed to make your own way through the castle of Dracula in order to demolish it. You have a view of an awesome portion of this game, which is the map of the castle along with Alucard sprite running from one room to the other. And each of the rooms is accessed just by touching a line which is a link to the following room. One room is supposed to be accessed only with one certain ability, such as unlocking the doors, or a plenty of other ways are there.


    While travelling from one room to the other room, you must run the great risk of walking into a foe. In this essence, I do mean that almost every room is expected to end in a battlefield. When you somehow run into any enemy, while changing the room there will be flashes of red in the background and you will be taken to the battle screen by the game itself. The battle screen while fighting places both you and your enemy characters supposedly in the mid-screen as they are having a “fight.” Both the sides of this game screen now have one playing field for each character. Two gems start dropping, and each of the players needs navigation to them to their any desired location.

  • Though available in the United Kingdom since June, Dell Streak unlocked cell phone is yet to land itself in USA. But many users are not aware of what they have been missing as the Streak only runs on Android 1.6. But there is good news after all this, as it is expected that the Streak will be running on a superior version of the Operating System.


    If you have already presumed that it’s the Android 2.2 Froyo, then you’re wrong. It’s the Éclair; Android 2.1– Google has the knack of coming up with catchy nicknames for their cell phone operating systems. Right now we don’t have the option to make a choice, because the Android 2.1 is after all an improvement from 1.6. Many users will be joyous about the features that the Éclair will provide them. The keyboard for example has undergone massive improvement.


    The Éclair also takes social networking a notch higher as it allows users to synchronise contacts with selected social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. It is also possible to get live wallpapers, though this is not an exceptional feature, but they do promise to look good on the large display of 5 inches of the Streak.



    Éclair is presumed to be loaded with the Streak, as and when it launches in the USA. It would be advisable for Dell to do that as some smartphones have by now upgraded to Froyo Operating Systems. And, the bigger version of Streak headed for us who will assumable have the Android 2.2 pre-installed, Streak has to build up the excitement to make people expect better things from Dell. The modified Streak, promising to launch in the later part of the year, I would wait and look out for what comes out of the competition.


    But immediately we can only hope that the Streak comes as early as possible.

  • If you have a new Unlocked iPhone 4 that has gone on carrier lockdown because you put your phone through jailbreak then do not worry as the developers of the iPhone now have come up with that little something that will help you to carrier unlock your jail broken Apple iPhone 4. The team from Apple has said that they will be updating their ultrasn0w unlock utility with help from their Cydia jailbreak applications store which will make unlocking your phone a breeze.  However we are still not yet fully convinced about why we should use ultrasn0w. Let us look at the possibilities of this application.



    This application will allow the users to easily unlock the phone which otherwise will be locked to a particular carrier on the GSM network which is AT&T in the USA. What is more important to note is that when this phone will be unlocked you can use this device on any network around the world where you can just use the local SIM card and put it into the phone and start it up. This is something which all of the users of this phone have been wanting as Apple and AT&T’s deal meant that the consumers were largely bound by this contract where they would have to be on AT&T. It is something which is very needed for consumers who do not travel the globe too as it is always a good feeling to have the phone all to yourself and be able to use it according to your wishes. Before unlocking your device, you need to jailbreak your phone using the necessary means.


    Fire up Cydia and look for ultrasn0w application and in no time you will get an  iPhone 4 which is unlocked and free to use with any kind of GSM service around the world.

  • It has been recently announced that New York City will now be connected fully with internet no matter where you go. After Transit Wireless through there revolutionary CEO Alex Mashinsky pushed through the plans to get Wi-Fi in the New York subway network, are now planning on getting Wi-Fi into the one thousand odd livery cars which are operating in New York City. This plan is expected to be completed by the fall this year and there are more plans to expand the network of these vehicles as soon as possible. In a recent statement given to the press, Mashinsky commented on their plans to expand the network of vehicles where he said that they were looking at a major expansion in this regard. The verdict is still out however on the effectiveness of the Wi-Fi network in the subways. However, looking at the constructive way in which they have set up this plan, it seems quite encouraging.



    When this network gets underway, you will be able to use your Wi-Fi capable machine to get to your email, social networking page and other applications in places where you could not do so earlier. Probably one of the biggest concerns about this network is the reliability of the signal when the car will be in transit on the roads and through areas where the signal quality is not really good. This plan has been welcomed by a huge section of the technological fraternity.


    There are some issues with regards to connection where the phones automatically reconnect with the new towers when they change locations. However, what happens with the Wi-Fi is that the user will have to reconnect manually. However, Transit Wireless believes that this issue should be solved in the next generation of wireless internet devices which will make it much easier to get Wi-Fi on the streets.
