CeleTalk : Iphone OS 4.0

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.

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 .

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.

CeLeTalk : Motorola Devour

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. Okay before we start let me tell you that this phone is bringing nothing new . but as long as Megan Fox likes it , I like it too :p .

More than a simple phone :
Externally well finished, the aluminum body of the Devour is in black and silver. It gives an impression of undeniable quality to this phone . Weighing 180 grams, this smartphone offers an LCD screen of 7.9 cm and 65 000 colors, and capacitive touch. With the 8GB card provided, gone is the problem of space for music and videos! 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.

But let’s be clear this phone is coming from the past , at a time when phones like the iphone or google nexus one are bringing ingenious and new stuff , so in two words from a very personal point of view, unless I have Megan Fox offered with the phone, I won’t buy it
The Motorola Devour will be sold in the United States at the operator Verizon Wireless.
