Nokia India eyeing Gaming and Music download market

Nokia is already trying to strengthen its presence in the Internet services market and now, Nokia India Pvt. Ltd is all set to come up with services like gaming, music downloads and navigation (Some time back Nokia announced that out of the 30 devices Nokia is planning to launch next year, almost 10 would be GPS enabled, so expect few of this 10 to be launched in India now) for the Indian consumer. Nokia launched these services under the name of Ovi in UK. I hope they keep the same name for the Indian mobile users.

Nokia India’s Multimedia Business Director, Vineet Taneja says, “We have always been known as a mobile phone company but this year, we are entering the internet services space. Continue reading “Nokia India eyeing Gaming and Music download market”

Vertu launches new range of Constellation Phones

v1.jpgv2.jpgv3.jpg

Vertu is a brand only for the chosen ones. By chosen ones, I don’t mean you have to be the extraordinary Neo of the famous sci-fi flick, The Matrix. For owning a Vertu, you should be super rich and spending money should be like breathing, a daily activity for you. Vertu had launched the Constellation range sometime back for the elite consumers.
Now, Vertu has released the Constellation Mixed Metal Edition of the Vertu Constellation range. These phones are made of stainless steel with gold accents and 18 carat gold is used to make the navigation button, side buttons, speaker vents, screws and the quarter turn locking device. The keypad is made up of ceramic and the back is wrapped with leather, black and violet.
For the uninformed, Vertu is a brand of premium phones by Nokia and are exclusively designed at the company’s UK design center under the able guidance of Principal Designer Mr. Frank Nuovo, who is Nokia’s Ex-Head of global Design.
I think Vertu is also manufactured in UK..but not very sure about this information.
Even if there are so many premium phones available in the market, Vertu makes sure that their phones stand apart….no wonder they are a Nokia company.

Beam it Up Scotty

beamitupscotty.gif 

There is a new cool website on the block, Beam It Up Scotty, this website allows you to send content to your or another person’s mobile phone. The website is free of cost and the good thing about this website is it allows you convert and compress the media so that it is easily compatible with your cell phone.
Some people thought that this website is just made to collect phone number and email addresses and then sell it to anyone else. But no, the company is incorporated in Germany, which comes under European Union. And every body knows how stringent are EU’s Data Protection Laws..anyways…this website will without doubt be a hit among users and will be overused..like it has happened with Nokia’s MOSH.

13.6% US shuns landline. India crossed that bridge in 2004!

A survey conducted by National Health Interview Survey has indicated that 13.6% of all US households have done away with their landlines and are relying on their mobile phones as their sole means of communication/connection with friends and loved ones.

The survey has also revealed the following startling statistics:

• More than 30% of those aged 25-29 rely solely on mobile phones
• Almost 30% of those aged 18-24 shunned landlines
• 13% of adults in the 30-44 age group are landline-free
• About 7% of people 45-64 used only cellphones
• Only 2% of adults 65 and older shunned hardline telephones
• Men were more likely than women to be landline-free – a trend that has persisted throughout the years

As compared to the US, the penetration of mobile phones and users is far wider in India. Continue reading “13.6% US shuns landline. India crossed that bridge in 2004!”

Try Phones with TryPhone

tryphone.jpg

Everyday new phones are launched and they fascinate all of us , Don’t they?

Whenever I see a phone being launched my mind gets cramped up with thoughts like how will it feel in my hands?,

what kind of functions will it have? how good is the image quality? what about sound quality and compatibility for different sound formats?…..unless and until I buy that phone or go to a shop (which has a working model) or any of my friend buy it, these questions will remain unanswered…but now don’t worry dude, TryPhone helps you in trying out a mobile handset as if you are trying them out at a shop. Some devices are not available at stores so in future you can try them out at TryPhone….this is a really cool website and innovative too!!
