May 24th, 2013

So there are simple phones and there are smartphones. Oh wait, there are also premium smartphones and then there are luxury phones. But how do you define a luxury phone? Well a Titanium body and a sapphire crystal screen would sure make the cut.

That’s exactly what the new luxury phone Vertu TI has. The new smartphone by luxury mobile maker Vertu has been launched in India at a price of (Believe it or not) Rs 6,49,990.
For those who are still reading this, the Vertu TI is equipped with a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone also has 64GB of internal storage and an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video capability as well as a 1.3MP front camera.

The display of this luxury phone is 3.7-inch WVGA screen and runs the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system which has been customized by Vertu to provide a new user interface.
Talk about the luxury of it, the Vertu TI is made of 184 individual parts crafted specially by Vertu’s craftsmen in England. The body of the phone as mentioned earlier is made of Grade 5 Titanium and the screen of the smartphone is made of sapphire crystal which gives it scratch-proof quality and four times higher strength than any other smartphone.
Like the saying goes, you just can’t put a price on some things. It is yet to be seen whether this phone is one of those things.

Imagine that there is no extra roaming charge when you travel all over the country. Yes, it may now be possible according to a mandate that may be passed by Telecom Regulatory Association of India (TRAI). There won’t be any roaming charges applied nationwide from next year.

Although Nimbuzz Ping is a nifty utility which helps you keep in touch with each other without the need for a smartphone, it has been classified under the A2P promotional SMS category and therefore restricted due to National Security reasons.

Stay Safe. Stay Connected.

Surface May Be Microsoft’s Breakthrough Device

June 27th, 2012

Microsoft unveiled their tablet/Laptop hybrid called Surface two days back. The most interesting part of this launch is the fact that this tablet is completely done by the company itself as compared to their previous partnerships with device manufacturers. It is about time that Microsoft did that. Even though Microsoft’s Windows is the world’s most popular operating system, the company has lagged behind on the tablet and Mobile OS part. Their upcoming launch of Windows 8 might solve that.

Windows 8 is supposed to be a tablet OS in addition to a desktop one and the stylings of the OS show that it is meant mainly for the tablet. Microsoft Surface is an indicator to what is forthcoming in the Windows ecosystem. The company now has all the components required to compete with the likes of Google and Apple.

Woah! Surface sports a cover which doubles up as keyboard! We think that is the most efficient and innovative implementation of a tablet keyboard in the market today. The keyboard is not wireless and has thus no need for charging. There are two versions of the Microsoft Surface. One comes with a Tegra 3 ARM-based processor running Windows 8 RT (for ARM) while the other high end version called Surface Pro will use an Ivy Bridge Core i5 chip.

Specifications:

Screen Size: 10.6 inches
Aspect ratio: 16:9
Resolution: Surface Pro – 1920×1080 | Surface – 1366×768
Display: Full HD display
Covers: A touch cover and a type cover. Both include keyboards and multi-touch functionality.

Availability:

Microsoft did not confirm when it will launch the device nor the pricing but it is expected to launch by the end of this year.
The Surface has been lauded by reviewers and critics for its innovative input methods and hardware specifications. We think it is pretty cool!
With this new type of  keyboard, we hope all those Nimbuzz users who are uncomfortable with typing on tablets will find it easy to communicate with your family, friends and colleagues using the Surface.

Here is a video which shows the Surface in action:

Vodafone, IDEA and Reliance follow Airtel with 3G price cuts (just like we predicted)!

May 26th, 2012

We blogged last time about how Airtel has reduced its 3G prices because of the lukewarm reception to 3G and its prices . We had also predicted how this will be a domino effect of sorts and other carriers will soon do the same. That has now come true with Vodafone, Idea and Reliance dropping the rates for their 3G connections.

Check all the images below for price sheets:

Idea Cellular:

Vodafone:

Reliance:
