CeleTalk : Puma Phone

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 .

CeLeTalk : Google Nexus One , The Good and The Bad Things

The Nexus One is creating a huge buzz. It must be said that the Google phone is considered as a serious competitor to the iPhone, Celetalk has tested it for you and has put together the good and bad points of Nexus One.

The good

Design: clean to the extreme, the Nexus One is designed by Taiwanese HTC So the Google brand is mentioned nowhere. The device is conspicuous by its finesse (119 mm in length, 59.8 mm in width and 11.5 mm thick), its wide screen (3.7 inches) and lightweight (130 g). An aesthetic reminding the iPhone. The fans of sobriety will appreciate.

Use: With the new Android 2.1, the Nexus One has a superior technical capabilities to its rival. It thus has 512 MB of RAM (twice the iPhone 3GS) and Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 3G QSD8250, one of the most powerful on the market and will also equip the first SmartBook HP. Result: it runs quickly and provides a smooth and pleasant browsing.

Another advantage: the advanced management of multi-tasking, very limited on the iPhone.

Multimedia: There the Nexus One is clear hunting on the lands of Apple offering a more efficient camera of 5 megapixels. In addition, it can record (MPEG 4) videos in high definition.

Gadgets: two microphones equip the Nexus One to “avoid ambient noise during a conversation,” according to Google. The revolution comes from the Gallery application, which allows access to images and videos in a easy and intuitive way. For now, Android Market claims to provide 18,000 applications but also claims itself to be a rather open tool: developers can add their own application to be validated or not by Google.

Another gadget: the animated screen.

The Bad

Screen: While it shines by its resolution (480×800, AMOLED technology), it annoys with the lack of touch precision..

Speak English: the voice recognition tool which is boasted by Google – which makes it possible to transcribe voice messages or to query the phone – is only available in French. It can be only used in English and with a good accent, please.

Verdict: If the Nexus One is a serious competitor of the iPhone, it even surpasses it in technical capabilities, thanks to Android 2.1. However, the Nexus is not a revolution.

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 Devour can obviously synchronize with calendars, files, contacts e-mails and telephone calls through the supplied software.

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.

CeLeTaLK's about: The LG GW620


Have you ever heard about the LG GW620 ?? CeLeTaLk.com is here to talk about it:

The Korean manufacturer LG offers a full range of mobile phones on the market and with the arrival of Android, the new OS by Google, LG had to react . The first Android LG smartphone is also known as GW620 Etna. Unlike its competitors, LG sells a product aimed at young customers (in line with the LG KS360), at a very attractive price: maybe a good way to democratize Android.

LG has decided to make an entry level model without sacrificing the quality of the product. The design is nice and meets the needs of the target including a full QWERTY keyboard and a beautifully colored interface. The Shell of the LG GW620 is in aluminum with a Teflon finish for the battery cover: it allows a good adhesion of the product in the hand and prevents any accidental slips.

LG is betting on positioning a smartphone, usually intended for a more pro and / or techie audience, to young users and Android is not here for nothing. Android is Google, and now everyone knows that the Californian firm is enjoying a strong capital of sympathy specially from young people . So by launching a smartphone with Android, LG is playing on the intrinsic values of Google and its expertise in mobile telephony.

Android is an operating system on which it is possible to put a layer to make the difference. LG has used this option by adding a layer characterized by icons of menus similar to the interface S-Class 3D (well known on other LG models) and a dashboard that slide indefinitely.

The LG GW620 is powered by the Cupcake version of Android (Android 1.5) and a Qualcomm processor running at 528MHz. All runs well and allows multi-tasking. LG had the foresight to pre-board practical applications like QuickOffice which allows you to view Word documents and Excel , a software for video editing, a software push email and an application called “SNS”. This application allows you to connect to his Facebook account, Twitter and Bebo.

The Photo Manager is very successful both in terms of interface and functionality. You can filter files by date with those of a particular day, by tags or by individuals. These two points are very useful: for each photo you can add one or more keywords for easy retrieval and thanks to the Face ID technology, it is possible to automatically recognize faces and add a name above. More traditional functions such as adding to a favorite an item and sharing it by email or on social networks are also available.

In terms of Hardware, and found on the side right, a microSD slot, a button for direct access to music player and the button of the camera (5 megapixels). On the left side, the volume buttons and the micro USB port (standard on mobile Android) that recharges the mobile and connect to a computer. on the top , the on / off button and a 3.5mm audio jack. on the front part , the button “menu” and two hover buttons “home” and “return”.

Finally,I can say that the LG GW620 is a very good product to enter the sphere Android with a complete smartphone (3G, Wi-Fi, aGPS, compass, Touchscreen, …) at a very affordable price.
