Nokia, the world leader in mobile phone sales, is not doing that much well in the smartphone market. With the N8, the Finn will attempt to differentiate themselves from competition with a high-end terminal.
The N8 is the first terminal to receive the new version of the Symbian OS ^ 3 (an evolution and not a complete overhaul of the system), supposed to improve the management of multipoint, offer greater customization of the interface and provide a better support of multitasking, more responsiveness.
From an ergonomic standpoint, the N8 does not really break with the usual codes of Nokia. The mark does not appear to be apparently ready to take the risks. Even if itâ€™s Something that could give it a little more force. This would also allow it to certainly win against opponents who rely heavily on the concept of design. The Nokia style, even if it has no reason to be abandoned should give more diversification, which just seems necessary today in this niche.
The N8 will have a 3.5 inch touch screen, 16GB of internal memory (expandable with microSD up to 32GB), a 12 megapixel photo sensor, an FM receiver, it will handle 720p video recording and will have an HDMI output to be connected to a TV.in terms of Connectivity it will support 3G, Bluetooth and WiFi.
Since the iPhone has dictated new rules, Nokia is struggling to impose itself on this market segment yet booming. If its latest models are able to attract fans of the brand, none has managed to repeat the success of the N95.
Between Asians and their “steamroller” strategy , the slew of Android-powered devices, and the U.S. Apple and BlackBerry, Nokia has no other choice but to operate differently.
The fourth generation of the iPhone OS will soon be entering the ring.
It will run on the iPhone 3G and the third generation of the iPod Touch and of course the iPad, but only partially on the previous generation. The developers have launched a preliminary version of the iPhone OS 4.0.
More than 100 new features are expected. But the main feature that makes the most sense is undoubtedly the multitasking, hue and cry by many users of the iPhone.
Interactive advertising in Apps
you will be therefore able to move from a third party application to another by Pressing the button “home” twice, a ribbon appears at the bottom of the screen bringing the icons of open applications. You can keep them in the background, for example listen to music from an application like Spotify while responding to an e-mail.
But this will only work on the services listed by Apple: audio, voice over IP geolocalization, notifications, task execution (while the transfer of a photo on an online service for example) and switching to an application on hold.
The company explains that it is the best way to multitask without much pull on the battery or system performance. Another limitation: it will not work on the iPhone and iPod Touch second generation.
Without going into details, Apple has cited some major new features of this fourth generation OS:
The arrival of folders: the user can unite under a single icon (a folder) placed on the home screen several applications. For example, to access to all of your games with one click .
Game Community: Through the Game Center youâ€™ll have the possibility to invit friends ,manage high scores, trophies … Innovations strangely reminding of what Microsoft offers on Xbox Live.
An enhanced messaging, combining several email accounts (Yahoo, Exchange, etc.). The ability to organize messages in threads to follow e-mail conversation and attachments associated with applications installed.
Access to the iBook library , like on the iPad. The synchronization of a book purchased will be on all platforms, iPhone, iPad …
Full of news for business: managing a fleet of aircraft, delivery of applications directly from the wireless, support for Exchange Server 2010 , VPN improved …
The other big new feature is the arrival of an advertising platform integrated in the applications. iad may well become the itching powder of the users of the iPhone.
The Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia is launching a new version of its successful smartphone the N97 mini with a Gold edition.
To compare it with the original version launched in September 2009, its equipped with a 18K gold shell, a headset in the same tone and a white leather pouch giving a luxurious look to the device. The rest is the same terminal running on Symbian S60 Fifth Edition and powered with an ARM processor clocked at 434 MHz and paired with 128MB of RAM.
We also find the large LCD resistive touch interface of 3.2 inches capable of displaying 16.7 million colors in a resolution 360 x 640 pixels with recognition of handwriting, proximity and sensor function, the accelerometer to rotate the display and ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness of the display and of course a full QWERTY keyboard for messaging.
the Nokia N97 Mini Gold Edition is compatible with 2G mobile networks, 3G and Wi-Fi , GPS navigation, electronic compass, digital camera with 5 Megapixels Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and 14x digital zoom, dual LED flash and geotagging, the secondary sensor 0.3 Megapixel front for videoconferencing, video-audio player, FM radio with RDS and 3.5 mm audio output for headphones.
Not to mention the internal memory of 8GB, slot motherboards for microSD / microSDHC up to 16GB, microUSB 2.0 port, Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity and Lithium-Ion 1 200 mAh more than 7 hours calls in 2G about 4 hours on 3G, 2 hours and 30 minutes in video playback, 28 hours of music playback and more than 300 hours of standby time.
The sports brand Puma has teamed up with the manufacturer Sagem to develop the Puma Phone.
The Puma Phone is equipped with a touchscreen of 2.8 inches that can display images of 240 x 320 pixels and a camera with a resolution of 3.2 mega pixels coupled to a LED flash. This phone is also equipped with a VGA camera at the front for video conversations. The Puma Phone should also be very appreciated by the athletes with its pedometer, GPS, compass and stopwatch equipping the phone.
The Puma Phone is also equipped with a slot for SD memory card and a jack of 3.5 mm in which you can plug the earphones supplied with the phone. The device has a correct connectivity with Bluetooth 2.1 and a compatible HSPA network.
The interface of the Puma Phone is very easy to use and the menus make its functions very accessible. In addition to the usual functions found on the phones in this category, Puma Phone has a lot of fun applications like music player shaped turntable or animated Puma.
The Puma Phone is distinguished by the presence on board of a solar charger with a charging indicator, placed on the back of the camera. The charger should enhance the Li-Ion battery that provides the phone normally with an autonomy of 5 hours of talk time and 350 hours on a standby mode.
Aimed to youth and athletes , a fetish clientele of the brand Puma.
No, there not everyone is going to use Android, the operating system for Google’s new generation of phones. Sagem, in association with the brand Puma, shows that other types of smartphones are possible. Indeed, the Puma Phone will not bother you with a platform for downloading applications as rich as those of terminals such as the iPhone, the Nexus One or HTC Desire. However, it offers original functions. It is indeed a smartphone mainly dedicated for the sport, and if it meets its public, it could, why not start a sportphone mode.
Among the options of the Puma Phone, as I said previously the pedometer and stopwatch are evidently intended for athletes. The first count your steps, calculates your speed and distance traveled, while the second, more conventional measure your time. The Puma Phone also incorporates several features now standard, but may show a new utility in a jogging in the woods: compass, GPS, geotag, mapping and routing.
In two terms if you are an athlete , the puma phone is the smartphone you need .
Question : which phone has as first user the star actress of the movie Transformers, Megan Fox? Answer: the Motorola Devour. A touch slide smartphone, the newcomer uses Google Android 1.6 as well as the entire suite of software for Google mobile. Access to the Android Market will also be available so you can download applications to your phone.

Good size, the diagonal allows watching h.264, h.263, MPEG-4 formats.
Regarding audio, MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and MIDI are supported. Moreover, according to the tilt of the phone , the display rotates. Classic but useful, especially when typing e-mails or on chat sessions.
Whether in the Exchange format, GMail, IMAP, POP3 , e-mail accounts are welcome, like SMS and MMS. The navigation seems easy enough on the screen. The question is whether manipulating it with the finger will be effective and responsive. The Devour can obviously synchronize with calendars, files, contacts e-mails and telephone calls through the supplied software. Regarding the battery, Motorola announced more than 6 hours of talk time to 443 hours standby.
