Windows 8 is coming to mobile, tablet and desktop and with it heralds a new rise in both Nokia’s and Windows mobile fortunes or so we are told. The new operating system is said to be the future of mobile and give both Apple and Android a run for their money. For drivers and those looking to get from A to B the new operating system also has some great apps in the pipeline that can make travel all the easier – let’s have a look. Nokia Maps The new Nokia Maps app for Windows is set to arrive on both the Nokia 920 and 820 and will include superfast off line maps, meaning you have a map wherever you go and can also save on the costs of data if abroad and looking for somewhere. The app will include a number of the usual services you will expect from a GPS app and has voice guided turn by turn access as well as venue maps for large malls, airports and other benefits. Nokia has also added an augmented view to allow you to showcase places internally and also links to the Nokia Drive car navigation feature, which motorists of holiday and business contract cars or people in places they haven’t frequented before will appreciate. The GPS app will also be updated on older Nokia Windows’s phones, allowing owners of the older devices to take advantage of the new service. Garmin StreetPilot The Garmin app is one that is famed on all devices for its abilities and includes a range of premium features and years of industry knowledge to create a great app. The Garmin app comes with ways to minimise data use, off line maps and real time traffic updates. The app also comes with regular updating and turn by turn navigation, as well as points of interest, weather forecasting and local search making it a comprehensive solution for those looking for a pay app that does it all. Google Maps Android convertors will delight in the fact they can get the Google Mapping option for free from their app store and use all the familiar features such as turn by turn navigation, business listings and even the latitude feature. It’s an attractive, comprehensive and well laid out maps app and it’s free. Of course it also includes Layer, street view, transit directions and a voice search option – ideal for those travelling in cars who don’t want to be so hands on. So, for all your app needs there are numerous comprehensive choices on the new and attractive Nokia and Windows cooperation.

HTC brings two smartphones with Windows Phone 8 OS

TThe HTC 8X and 8S smartphones have dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 mobile processor inside them. HTC has finally announced two Microsoft Windows Phone 8 based smartphones. Named as HTC 8X and HTC 8S, the smartphones feature a new unibody design based on the Windows Phone Live Tiles styling and come with premium matte finish in all colours. The HTC 8X is a top end Windows Phone 8 device with 720p HD native resolution bearing display while the HTC 8S is a mid-range device that lacks a front facing camera. HTC plans to make the new 8X and 8S available in over 50 countries starting this November. Earlier, as The Mobile Indian had also reported, HTC was said to have been working on three Windows Phone 8 based devices codenamed as Accord, Rio and Zenith. Recently the details of the HTC 8X had surfaced online as well. Just like the new One series, HTC has employed a similar model names and design strategy with the new Windows Phone 8 based smartphones.

HTC 8X The HTC 8X features a 4.3-inch S-LCD 2 touchscreen display, manufactured using the new Corning Gorilla Glass 2 technology for great durability, slim glass panel and scratch-resistance. This display features 1280x720 pixel resolution natively and offers 341 pixels per inch pixel density. HTC has also added a layer of optical lamination for better sharpness, clarity and also to reduce the light reflection. That means the content on the screen would be legible even in bright daylight. HTC has packed a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 mobile processor along with 1 GB RAM and 16 GB on-board storage. This smartphone supports LTE networks along with 3G networks and offers wireless connectivity options through Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and faster dual-band WiFi. At the back, the HTC 8X flaunts an 8 megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture and ultra-wide angle lens to capture more details. HTC has added dedicated ImageChip for faster focus and also deliver clear, sharp images. This camera is capable of recording 1080p HD videos at 30 frames per second and HTC has provided dedicated camera button for this device. The 8X also has a 2.1 megapixel front facing camera for high quality video call and chat. HTC has integrated the Beats Audio technology along with exclusively built-in amplifiers and also offered support for Near Field Communication. The HTC 8X has non-removable 1800 mAh battery and weighs about 130 grams with battery - almost same as the HTC One X. Surprisingly, there is no mention about expandable storage and we believe that it does not offer any.

Nexus 7 Vs. The World: Our favorite cheap tablets

If you’re in the market for a small tablet (say around the 7-inch mark) then you are spoiled for choice right now. There are some great options on the market, persistent rumors about some impending new releases, and prices are getting competitive. Let’s take a look at the contenders, kicking off with the Android platform. All three of these Android tablets are priced at $200 (for the 8GB versions) and they all have 7-inch displays. You can see a full comparison table in our Nexus 7 vs. Kindle Fire vs. Nook Tablet: $200 tablet showdown.

mobile shopping in chennai
Nexus 7
Our Nexus 7 review makes it pretty clear that Google’s 7-inch Jelly Bean tablet is a beauty. It’s cheap; it’s feature-packed; and it runs the very latest version of the Android platform. With a class-leading quad-core processor and a high resolution IPS LCD screen (1280 x 800 pixels), what’s not to like? The lack of a microSD card slot disappointed some people, and the Nexus 7 depends on Wi-Fi (there’s no mobile network option), but beyond that it’s an impressive piece of kit. Kindle Fire
Amazon’s offering has been around for a while now. It’s a solid device and Amazon is able to link in a great selection of content, but specs-wise it pales in comparison with the Nexus 7. If you primarily want an e-reader then go for a cheap Kindle. If you want a tablet then go for the Nexus 7. The Kindle Fire simply isn’t the best at anything at the moment, though that may change this week. Amazon is rumored to announce a new Kindle Fire.

Nokia, Microsoft’s latest offering: Lumia 920 out today

Nokia, Microsoft’s latest offering: Lumia 920 out today

Nokia and Microsoft Corp will take the wraps off the struggling European company’s most powerful smartphone on Wednesday, in what may be their last major shot at winning back a market lost to Apple , Samsungand Google. The world’s largest software maker and the Finnish company that once dominated the cellphone market will showcase the device in New York on Wednesday morning and demo it for industry insiders about the same time in Helsinki. Microsoft and Nokia hope the new Lumia will become a potent weapon in an escalating global mobile industry war. Google’s Motorola Mobility intends to show off its latest smartphone on Wednesday, Amazon.com Inc will unwrap new Kindle Fire tablets the day after, and Apple is expected to unveil the latest version of its seminal iPhone on 12 September. Samsung Electronics says it will sell its own Windows phone as early as next month. The Lumia 920 and smaller Lumia 820 will run on the latest Windows Phone operating software, which Microsoft hopes will rival Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android to become a third mobile platform. If the new phones do not appeal to consumers, it could spell the end for loss-making Nokia and deal a serious blow to Microsoft’s attempts to regain its footing in the market. Leaked pictures of the two models show a similar look to Nokia’s previous Windows phones, but analysts say these alone will not be enough to turn the corner. “There have to be more devices, and their features have to stand out more. There has to be a ‘wow’ device,” said Hannu Rauhala, analyst at Pohjola Bank, who cut his recommendation on Nokia’s shares to “reduce” on Tuesday. The stakes are high for both Nokia and Microsoft. The Finnish handset maker has logged more than 3 billion euros in operating losses in the past 18 months, forcing it to cut 10,000 jobs and pursue asset sales. Its share of the global smartphone market has plunged to less than 10 percent from 50 percent during its heyday, before the iPhone was launched in 2007. Windows phones have only captured 3.7 percent of the global smartphone market, according to Strategy Analytics. Android phones have 68 percent, while Apple has 17 percent. For Microsoft, successful Lumia sales could convince more handset makers and carriers to support its Windows Phone 8 software, which promises faster performance and a customizable start screen. Last week Samsung became the first to announce a smartphone running Windows Phone 8, at the IFA trade show in Berlin. But it was not able to provide the model to visitors at the show.

ECOSYSTEM WARRIORS Apple’s first iPhone revolutionized the mobile industry, popularizing the model of a third-party developer “ecosystem,” today considered pivotal to the success of any operating system. Part of the reason for the limited success of Windows phones is that they support only 100,000 or so apps, compared with about 500,000 or more for Android or iPhones. There is also the interconnection between apps and content, typified by Apple’s iTunes and iCloud, which share content across devices, that acts as a powerful disincentive to switch between vendors. “Much has been made of Windows Phone emerging as ‘the third ecosystem’ in mobile. This is a huge task in itself, but Apple’s and Google’s entrenched positions where consumers have already invested heavily in apps and content makes switching platforms less attractive,” said Ben Wood from mobile sector research firm CCS Insight. The new phone software is similar to the Windows 8 desktop and tablet software to be released on October 26, making it easier for developers to write apps for both, and Microsoft hopes this will boost the platform’s popularity. But the Windows operating system is by no means universally popular in the PC market, so consumers will not necessarily come to the mobile phone equivalent with unalloyed goodwill. “Consumer perceptions of the Windows brand have been shaped by PC usage. Although Windows 8 will help, there is still plenty of work required to overcome historical prejudices in the transition to mobile,” said Wood. The new Lumias could, however, benefit from the continuing decline in Research In Motion Ltd’s BlackBerry, and also from a recent legal blow to the Android operating system. A California jury decided last month that some of Samsung’s hot-selling Android smartphones copied features of the iPhone, which may result in import bans and drive handset makers to put more resources into making Windows-based phones. But for Nokia and Microsoft to exploit that window of opportunity, it must first find favour with consumers, who so far have shown little enthusiasm for smartphones with Windows software.

A sequel to the previously released Gleam, the Motorola Gleam+ hits out with the familiar clamshell body trying to appear as stylish as possible. And besides looking good, the phone packs in some handy features like a full HTML browser and dual displays.

It features an intuitive and uncomplicated user interface along with dual screens. The matrix display of the device comprises 144 LEDs and is accompanied by a glowing base light that alerts users regarding missed calls and unread messages. It also flaunts a 2.8-inch WQVGA display of 400 x 240p resolution.

Latest malady of the tech-obsessed: "no-mobile-phobia"

3 comments

In a British survey released last week by mobile phone tech company SecureEnvoy, two thirds of 1,000 people polled said they feared being phoneless, up from 53 per cent four years ago.

Those aged 18-24 suffered the most (77 per cent) followed by those aged 25-34 (68 per cent).

Women were nine per cent more likely to be what is now dubbed nomophobic (as in "no-mobile-phobia"). Researchers guess that this may be due to the fact men often carry a second cell phone.

Signs of nomophobia include trembling, sweating, and nausea when a mobile phone is out of reach, according to AllAboutCounseling.com.

Also, if you obsessively check for your phone or worry about whether or not it is in a safe place, you may also have a problem.

If you suffer from nomophobia, aim for phobia treatments such as trying to go without your mobile for a time, avoiding negative thoughts, and trying breathing techniques or yoga.

If you fear a sense of disconnection more than anything, the site advises, it may be time to seek professional help.

Doctors and chiropractors are also claiming too much time spent bent over mobile devices is causing a rise in a range of symptoms such as neck strain, headaches, and pain in the shoulders, and sometimes in the arms and hands - a syndrome coined "text neck."

Latest Mobile Phone Updates : HTC One X: what you need to know

1 comments

The HTC One X (previously the Endeavor/Edge/Supreme) is expected to stride out on stage at MWC 2012 and wave its quad-core powered crown jewels right in our face.

Quad-core is one of the buzz words in the mobile phone industry this year and we expect to see a number of devices packing serious power over the next 11 months.

mobile shopping in chennai



We first heard rumblings on the HTC One X back in November last year under the moniker of the HTC Edge and rumours have sprouted from there.

The One X is set to be the world's first quad-core phone, although there have been reports the likes of Samsung, LG and Motorola have been sniffing around.

Samsung has since announced that it will not be flaunting the Galaxy S3 at MWC but there are rumblings that LG is prepping its quad-core X3 handset which could go head-to-head with the HTC One X in Barcelona.

To make it easier for you, dear reader, here's a round up of all the gossip rumbling through the rumour mill:
HTC One X name

The name looks set to be the HTC One X, which seems a bit super futuristic to us - but sources are claiming this is where HTC wants to take its new flgaship model. Who are we to argue?
HTC One X processor

Ok so there are no two ways about it: the HTC One X is all about its quad-core processor.

Reports suggested it will sport Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor which will house four 1.5GHz chips. That's an awful lot of power and thus we expect the One X to be lightning quick.

HTC One X specs

Update: It's being rumoured that the One X will lose the famous HTC four button set up below the display in favour of on screen options. This puts the image above in doubt, as it clearly shows the four buttons below the screen.

Of course no processor alone will deliver you a mind blowing mobile experience, decent specs are required to provide the complete package.

It looks like the quad-core processor will be backed up by 1GB RAM which should have no trouble in running Google's latest Android operating system Ice Cream Sandwich.

Update: The One X is set to come with 32GB of internal storage, but it will not support microSD or any other type of expandable memory card.

A recently leaked ROM for the One X seems to confirm that it will be running Android version 4.0.3 will HTC's latest 4.0 sense interface over the top.

Update: It has now been suggested that the One X will ship with version 4.0.5 of Ice Cream Sandwich.

Vonage Mobile launches with free Canada and U.S. calling for a limited time

2 comments

When it rains, it pours. As we’ve seen with Dell Voice, the VoIP market is getting increasingly heated in Canada. Vonage is launching its Vonage Mobile service in app form for iPhone and Android, after providing free calls between Facebook users last year.

mobile showroom in chennai



Vonage uses high-definition codecs between app users, and calls are free for anyone using the app or a Vonage number. In addition, to promote the service, the company is making calls free to anyone in Canada, the U.S. and Puerto Rico for a limited time. After that, rates will be “on average 70 percent less than major mobile carriers and 30 percent less than Skype.”

The app, which is available on both Android and iPhone, looks good and works quite well. At this time only a small number of my contacts are available for free app to app calls, which are purportedly “exceptional[ly] high-definition.” Outgoing calls use your existing phone number as call display, so unlike Dell Voice, which gives you an entirely new number, outgoing Vonage calls shouldn’t be cause to have your recipients hit the Ignore button.

International rates are pretty low: we’re looking at less than 2.2c/min for China, and U.K., while India is 2.4c/min. Conveniently, credit can be bought using in-app purchasing in both the Android and iPhone app.

Vonage also gives you the ability to send text messages to Vonage users from within the app. Now that there is a mobile version of the popular home phone service, hopefully more people will sign up.

Check out Vonage Mobile for Android and iOS and let us know what you think.

Stolen Cell Phones: What to do?

0 comments

Cell phones disappear daily. They're sometimes merely misplaced but they are often stolen. For a thief, cell phones are a pretty popular target due to the fact they are small and easier to take and to sell than most items. They can easily bring in $50 or more per phone. Then of course, most thieves merely take the phone and use it until the owner has the phone disabled.




Find out how to prevent cell phone theft, what real risks are, and what to do about stolen cell phones here.

Preventing Cell Phone Theft
There are a few things cell phone owners can do to reduce the possibility of losing the cell phone, having it stolen, or reducing the damage that can occur in either instance:

Use a clip or leash to keep your cell phone attached to your body.

Don't leave an unattended phone laying in clear view or in a purse that isn't in a locked compartment.

Consider carefully what information you store on your cell phone. If it would create too big of a disaster if it fell into someone else's hands, don't store it. You may not prevent someone from taking your phone, but you can prevent them from accessing important information.

Encrypt the data on your cell phone to prevent others from using it.

You can slow down a thief at least by using passwords to restrict easy access to the keypad. Read this Microsoft page on the importance of selecting a strong password.

Top Ten Mobile Phone News Stories of the Week

1. Sony Ericsson Has Become Sony Mobile Communications

Confirmation of the re-branding of Sony Ericsson came during Sony’s press conference at CES last week, and Sony Ericsson will from now on be known as Sony Mobile Communications. New phones will also only have Sony branding from now on too, which is far sooner than originally expected.

2. Motorola Teams Up with JCB for Special Defy+ Model

Motorola and JCB have teamed up to create a limited edition of the Defy+. The special phone has a shock absorbent case, a stronger battery and an exclusive app featuring several handy tools such as a spirit level, a torch and a decibel reader. In the pack there’s also a car charger and an extra-long charger cable, plus the phone comes with a two-year guarantee. Otherwise, it remains the same dust proof, water resistant Android Gingerbread phone with a 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera and 3.7-inch screen.

3. Nokia City Lens Demoed at CES

A new Nokia Labs app named City Lens was demoed at CES last week. The augmented reality app checks your location and locally maps out the resource you’ve requested – nearby hotels for example. By holding the phone in different ways, users can bring up different views, such as an overhead map when laid flat or selectable text in portrait. See City Lens in action below:

4. Sony Ericsson Talks About its Future Plans

With Sony taking over the reigns at Sony Ericsson long before the middle of the year, there was always a chance the team at Sony Ericsson would be moved off phone development. However, according to the company’s chief financial officer, the change will allow an ‘even deeper integration with Sony’ and they’ll continue to focus on Android smartphones.

5. Motorola Xoom Gets Ice Cream Sandwich

Updates for the Motorola Xoom tablet have begun, taking the Wi-Fi version up to the latest build of Google Android, which in this case appears to be 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. At the moment, the update seems to be arriving on Xooms all over the world, but in no particular geographical order, so just be patient if you haven’t seen a notification just yet.

6. Galaxy S II Sales Still Strong

The Samsung Galaxy S II has already been revealed to have sold more than 10 million units around the world, but now Samsung has revised its home sales figure too. The latest total is an amazing 5 million Galaxy S II sales in Korea alone, working out to mean 1 in 10 Koreans have an SGS II in their pocket. Quite amazing.

7. David Hockney’s iPad Art on Display

Famed British artist David Hockney will be displaying his iPad-created artwork at the Royal Academy of Art over the coming weeks. Beginning on the 21 January, there will be a variety of landscapes drawn by Hockney in his A Bigger Picture exhibition, all drawn on an iPad using the Brushes app. Take a look at the video below for a sneak peak.

8. Fujitsu Teases New ICS Tablet

Fujitsu may be planning to bring its smartphones to Europe and the US, but will it bring its tablets too? We hope so, as the Stylistic M532 looks great. Demoed at CES, the Android Ice Cream Sandwich device uses the Nvidia Tegra 3 processor and has a 10.1-inch screen, 16GB of memory and will cost around 500 euros when it’s released in May. UK pricing and launch has yet to be confirmed.

9. Nokia Teams Up with EA to Offer Free Games

Nokia has struck a deal with Electronic Arts to add ten premium games free-of-charge to their Lumia Windows Phone 7 devices, plus further EA games from Chillingo and other publishers will be released over the coming months. Although no titles have been confirmed, games such as The Sims: Medieval, Mirror’s Edge, Real Racing 2, Spy Mouse and FIFA 12 have been reported as heading Nokia’s way.

10. Instagram Could be Coming to Windows Phone

The extremely popular iPhone-only photo-sharing app, Instagram, is rumoured to be heading for Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, and it could do so before it arrives on Android. The app has been confirmed as in production for Android, but the high standards, good quality cameras and serious financial backing behind Windows Phone could see the team make a WP7 version their priority instead.

Samsung, which surfaced as the biggest cellular phone manufacturer on the back of flourishing Os models in the third one fourth, teamed up with Apple last year to strengthen its cellular application force.

In Sept two Unix like application groups, one supported by New samsung, and another by Apple, agreed to together develop Tizen, a new managing system for mobile phones and other gadgets, by joining their LiMo and Meego platforms in a bid to gain broader industry and consumer assistance.

"We have an effort that will mix bada and Tizen," a New samsung spokesperson verified senior v. p. Kang Tae-jin as telling Forbes magazine in an interview last week.

The open-source Tizen foundation supports multiple gadgets including smartphones on the market, products, Internet-enabled TVs, notebooks and in-vehicle infotainment techniques.

It would have to attract wide assistance from programmers and manufacturers to tackle the dozen or so other cellular techniques available in a cellular phone industry covered with Google Linux-based Os and Apple's in-house application.

Google's Os included 53 % of the global cellular phone industry in the third one fourth and Samsung's bada foundation just 2.2 %.

An image purportedly of the AT&T Ace leaked last week, showing the carrier’s logo as well as a 4G icon and front-facing camera. The assumption is that the Ace 900 will be one of AT&T’s first 4G LTE Windows Phones, tipped to go on sale sometime prior to the middle of 2012.

Other specs include 512MB of RAM and – despite a presumed carrier lock to AT&T – the inclusion of the 1700MHz band necessary for 3G on T-Mobile USA. The device is supposedly codenamed “Eloko” and will ship running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, rather than Tango as some earlier rumors indicated.
