CeleTalk : Nokia N8


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 it’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.

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.


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 you’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.

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.

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 .

Good size, the diagonal allows watching h.264, h.263, MPEG-4 formats.

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. 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
