Nokia Lumia 800 Review Unravels The First Nokia Phone Empowered By Windows Phone

Nokia has been a top-notch mobile phone manufacturer that has successfully wooed the mobile lovers with incredible handsets. The most appealing factor that has made the Nokia fans to go gaga over Lumia 800 is its operating system. This is the first move taken by Nokia, to dump Symbian and make the Lumia to run on Windows Phone 7.5, the latest Mango version. The Nokia Lumia 800 review spells out that Nokia has taken the giant leap of rolling out in the market the Lumia powered by the Mango, to appease the mobile lovers.

It is indeed a bold step taken by Nokia to make Lumia 800 to run on the latest version of Microsoft Windows Phone software, which actively supports multi-tasking. The home screen dynamically displays a wide range of information like the messaging and the mail tiles blurting out the unread messages and mails, that you need to check. The users can pin their choicest applications, snaps, contacts on the home screen to use it as short cuts. The new operating is fun, and the users can enjoy a number of applications. The Nokia Lumia 800 review also reveals how the mobile enthusiasts can enjoy free music streaming via the Mix Radio. The onboard navigation software is quite commendable.

In terms of design, the Lumia is eye-catching and robustly built. The display offers captivating view as the 3.7 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of the smartphone with Gorilla Glass display and Nokia ClearBlack display paves the way for it. The camera of a mobile phone has been a scoring point. Though the Lumia incorporates 8MP camera, the front-facing camera is missing, depriving the users of the facility to engage in video conferencing in Skype or make video calls. However, the Carl Zeiss Tessar lens is commendable in making the Lumia to capture top-quality snaps in low light condition.

The avid mobile lovers can read a HTC Radar review and find out that HTC, its biggest competitor has armed the Radar with a secondary camera. The new smartphone from the stable of the big brand HTC is impressive with its look and performance. With the aid of the Widows Phone 7.5 OS, the Radar is power-packed with good features. Keeping in mind the targeted niche that HTC is aiming to satisfy, the Radar lives up to the expectations of the mobile enthusiasts, except its few foibles. Reading up a HTC Radar review will enable the mobile lovers to have a thorough understanding of the new HTC smartphone.

Google Phone Versus iPhone 4G

Background

There has been a lot of news circulating about the possibility of a handset designed and built by Google and running their Android software.

But, what to believe? Would Google release a phone to rival that of their customers (Motorola, HTC). Also, if released will it be the phone to finally knock the iPhone off its pedestal?

Current state of the handset market

It’s all go at the moment with Apple expected to set a definite release date for their iPhone 4G on Monday June 7th and the Android increasing in popularity on a daily basis. A lot of mobile phone customers are waiting to upgrade or buy new handsets but are unsure what platform to commit to.

The Google Android Operating System

When Google bought over Android Inc back in 2005, they acquired a company who specialised in mobile phone software and operating systems.

Now in 2010, Android has been released on numerous devices, notably the most recent HTC handsets.

The iPhone 4G

Almost everyone reading this will have seen the leaked footage of the iPhone 4G on the internet and Apple’s scurried attempts to maintain its secrecy. Rumours are flying around on the new features (HD video streaming and recording, TV, ultra fast internet connection etc) and we are expecting Apple’s official release on Monday June 7th.

The Big Question

So do you join the new generation of Android users or wait for Apple’s much anticipated iPhone 4G?

In terms of functionality they are very similar but where Apple is largely in favour of HTML5, Android offers easier compatibility for developers through Flash, which Apple is slowly trying to edge out of its products.

Apple has an established back catalogue of apps and rarely lets you down with its updates. However, Android is an exciting new platform and is apparently converting 10,000+users daily.

Mr Jobs, the ball is in your court, let’s hope this update is as good as all of us in the mobile phone industry are anticipating.

Track a Cell Phone’s Location and Learn What Your Employees Are Really Doing

Employers and business owners the world over lose thousands each year due to employees using their paid work time to slack off. Do you find yourself wondering what your employees really do when they run errands? Do you find they take extraordinarily long lunch breaks? Do you even find yourself suspicious each time your employees leave on a long business trip? Fortunately, with the right technology, you can track their cell phone location and learn what they’re up to when they’re away.

The advantage to having cell phone spyware at your fingertips is that it allows you to monitor your employees’ activities through the phone itself. Quality programs keep tabs on phone logs, text transcripts, address book names, and more. Best of all, you can track the cell phone’s location via a GPS. Fast, accurate, and legal, this software will be able to put your doubts to rest.

How does this cell phone software work? Essentially, it remains hidden in the phone and sends you updates to an account you create online. Installing the program is simple – all you do is create your account, install the program via the instructions online, and reboot the phone. Once the phone reboots, the program works undetected for as long as the phone is on and working properly. There is no limit to how much data you receive, nor is there any limit to how long you will continue to receive it. Simply log in to your account and you will be able to see what they’re doing any time, whether they’re driving off for lunch or taking a business trip halfway across the world.

One of the best things about cell phone spyware is its sheer diversity. Not only can you use it on more than one phone, but it’s compatible with a number of cell phones, including smartphones, Blackberry devices, Nokia phones, Android phones, Samsung phones, Symbian S60 phones, iPhones, and many others. It doesn’t matter how advanced the phone is, this program will be able to infiltrate the device and provide you with accurate, timely updates.

Smart Phone Identification Scrambling Software Coming to Prevent Prying Eyes

As more and more software apps are available for various types of smart phones, and the iPhone we are going to begin to see free applications which help scrambled the identity and information traveling through those networks. This is both good and bad, it’s bad if you are trying to track terrorists by their electronic serial numbers, and capture that information at the local cell tower. It’s good because it gives privacy to the user.

A smart phone manufacturer may be upset because what they believe to be their proprietary software is now being opened up, rewritten, and becoming open source. You can expect that there will be software soon which will anonymize all your personal data online, and scramble your information while encrypting it in a way that no one can break into it. You can imagine that something like this does not make the intelligence industry very happy, nor would it make very happy many of the countries which like to spy on users and have access to this information.

Recently India, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia all came down hard on Blackberry because they use a type of encryption which means that their governments cannot get into the information. If you are the government from India, you have a real concern considering the fact that there were those terrorist attacks in Mumbai, and they used cell phones to communicate. If you are the Royal Family in Saudi Arabia you are worried about a revolution, the last thing you want is a way for folks that may be planning attacks against your government to encrypt their communicate during their attacks.

In the UAE recently, a foreign visiting high-ranking, near head of state level individual was assassinated in one of the hotels, and therefore the security officials want to be able to access smart-phone technologies and communication transmissions to prevent such things, and protect people who will be visiting, or their own government and its leaders for that matter.

When good intentioned folks open the cell phone operating system software folks create applications which bypass the protocols of these particular phones, as they are trying to help the user by creating better and more ways to operate their mobile technologies. But, the cell phone manufacturers are upset, because the phone may never work again, any individual with the phone may decide to take it back for a refund, and they are being undermined by the open source community.

However, if you legitimately buy your cell phone, you should have the right to use it in any way you wish and unlock all its technology and capabilities correct? No, actually, that is incorrect because each of these communication devices is registered with the Federal Communications Commission, and you don’t actually have the right, even though you bought the phone – and you may be violating FCC if you operate the phone in an incorrect way.

Plus, in doing this you could run your own networks and groups, and linking and amongst her friends. You can also create ways to talk phone-to-phone in some cases without using the cell tower, and therefore your electronic serial number could not be tracked, as that data would not go to the cell tower, you’d be sending information directly like a walkie-talkie.

This is disconcerting for those in the intelligence community, and those who are trying to protect us from terrorists, but we do live in an open society, and people really don’t want to be tracked, or have their privacy violated, even if it is for a good cause such as national security – because you know yourself not to be a terrorist or bad guy, and thus, there is no need for anyone to invade your privacy right? Yes, I understand your point, and the constitutional issues, here, however, that point did need to be made – you understand.

Now let’s say you wanted to scramble your electronic serial number when you were talking bypassing the cell tower? Well, good point, but also realize it is an FCC registered device! And, that wouldn’t be advised or legal; and if this were done, your phone couldn’t be tracked in theory, oh there are probably ways, but it wouldn’t be worth doing, unless you were a really bad person, and if so, you’d be tracked anyway. Of course, if you were a good person doing this, one would have to ask; why? Red flag right there, do you see it? Why are you trying to evade federal communication laws?

Still, this whole idea of anonymity is a problem too, because you know those Caller ID blockers? Well, if your network doesn’t pick up your Caller ID for some reason, or you block it, most likely no one is going to bother to answer your phone call anyway, as it is probably just a BS sales call in their minds. So, all this scrambling idea really raises a red flag; as in why is this user scrambling their identity, what are they hiding, what are they afraid of, and who on Earth are they? See that point, it’s like red-flag city already all over again.

Oh that reminds me, let me tell you a story; before I retired, I operate a mobile car wash business with a 1-800-number and a dispatch service. We eventually had to set up this way because we grew our company and were operating in 450 different cities with over 100 franchisees – so when the caller called in on the one 800-number we would know where they were calling from, and re-route that service call request to the cell phone of the operator which was in their area. It was like magic, well in the early 90s that was hot stuff.

We later had real challenges with this, and we had a multitude of problems with this because many times people would be calling from their cell phones (remember cell phones really started taking off in the late 80s and early 90s). So, we might get a phone call for a car wash in Atlanta, but they’ve since been moved to Kentucky, but kept their old cell phone number. The franchisee or mobile car wash operator in Atlanta would get the call, instead of the person in Kentucky, and you can see the problem.

Likewise, we might have a franchise buyer who might be in the Seattle Washington area, but the area code for their cell phone was from Scottsdale Arizona where they would stay as snowbirds in the wintertime. The franchise buyer would end up calling a carwash truck in Seattle, when they wanted to buy a franchise for their son lives in Houston TX. Oh, how crazy this gets, especially when maybe we didn’t want to sell a franchise in one of those cities or already had a franchisee there.

Eventually the problems with this one 800 system got to be too great as the company grew, and as more and more people became mobile cell phone users, and by this time it was in the mid-90s. Before that it wasn’t a big issue at all – and back in the 80’s and early 90s, as in 1990, 91, 92, and so forth most everyone had a cell phone, and they were calling from their local area on their cell phone, and it went to the same area code where they wanted services.

Now then, why does this matter? Well, if you are scrambling your cell phone identification because you don’t want local marketers, or anyone to know where you are, who you are, or you want to keep all the information you discuss over the airwaves secret – because perhaps, for instance you are a corporate executive and you know lose lips sink ships – then going to cause other problems for yourself, and anyone else involved as you try to hide access to your user data, whether it is anonymized or not.

And, you can understand why all these problems are a challenge to our national security, especially in the future, with Smart Phone OS being opened up, as they work to protect the American People. Now there are many people who would debate that by doing this, we can prevent a potential eventuality of a “1984 Big Brother” type scenario, and therefore it is okay to unlock the cell phone or smart phone software.

So the question is do we allow the data flow and communication in the most chaotic form, and give privacy back to the people, and yet, in end, end up with all sorts of personal tech devices interfering, and trampling frequency traffic? Or do we find ways to prevent the hacking of the proprietary software that goes into each and every cell phone, smart phone, iPhone, or whatever the personal tech device individuals are using most in the next 5-years?

Apparently, the Supreme Court has also weighed into the debate, and they believe you should be able to break out of the proprietary software of let’s say an iPhone, and use applications that weren’t authorized, or sold by Apple, which you wish to use on your phone. Unfortunately, this also opens up another can of worms of unintended consequences and there’s not a lot of talk about it right now, but I guarantee you there will be in the future. Meanwhile please consider all this.

Phone Spy Software – Legally See What Your Partner Is Doing

Many of us know that the government routinely spies on all telephone and email traffic – which when you think about it makes a nonsense of the privacy laws because they do this without any court issued search warrant. The simple fact is that every word ever said, and every word ever written in chat and email is automatically read and recorded by the US government which believes it has the right to search for any keywords upsetting to its power-base. We’ve all seen the TV shows that show the government at work invading every level of privacy the population believes it should have.

No it is clear that not only the government has this power – we individuals also can access an amazing amount of spy-type abilities by using special mobile phone software. Basically, all you need is your target’s mobile phone number, the spy software installed on your phone and you are in business. By means of a web-site interface, you tick the boxes of what you want and the list seems almost endless as to what you can get by way of information. For example, you can monitor in real-time the location of your target by GPS, every in and out-bound email their mobile phone receives, listen in to every phone call through their phone and you can access their call log and address book as well as any pictures sent, received or stored in their mobile phone.

Amazingly, you don’t need to touch their phone or install software on it – rather you install the software on your own phone and then enter their telephone number. As reported on FoxLA news the other night, the software you are using is legal and even if the person you are targeting is not on the telephone, you can listen into any conversation they are having in real life by using their telephone’s microphone as a listening device. I am not surprised that the technology can do these things – more that I am surprised it is in fact legal to use it.

Reverse Phone Software at Home

Most homes today have a PC with Internet access, and this can be used for a variety of reasons, such as surfing the Internet, providing children and college students with a useful resource to help them with their studies, buying goods and services and it can even be used to help people turn detective. Using software is one of the ways in which you can do this at home, without anyone knowing that you have been searching for the owner of a phone number.

Previously using this type of software was something that was only accessible to people such as the police, recently however, this technology has been further developed to allow people in their own homes to use such software. In fact anyone who has an unknown phone number that they would like to check out can quickly go online and have full access to reverse phone software within minutes. As such software is so massively popular there are a multitude of different service providers all waiting to help you with your search.

Apart from being so easy and straightforward to use, reverse phone software can also be used directly from the provider’s site. So anyone who uses such software does not have to download it onto their PC, making the search and the service absolutely anonymous. There is no need to worry about the person whose number you are searching for will find out about your search as there is no alert system from which they could find this out. In short reverse lookup software is the ideal choice to anyone who is looking to find out the owner of either cell phone or a residential phone number quickly and with the minimum fuss. More people are using such services and as a result they are getting more and more accurate as demand grows.
