Sprint’s $130 Samsung Instinct twists free

Written by JOJY on June 20, 2008 – 3:59 pm -

Mossy don’t like it, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put finger to screen and give Samsung’s new Instinct a test of your own. Particularly if you’re a fan of Sprint either by choice or by contract. Available now and right on schedule for $129.99 (with 2 year contract and $100 mail-in rebate), not the original $200 bounced around initially. With Sprint trying hard to position the Instinct as an iPhone killer, we guess they really didn’t have a choice but to undercut it in price.

ASOCS unveils MP100 Multicomm processor — add LTE or mobile WiMax via software update

Written by JOJY on May 19, 2008 – 1:15 pm -

Remember how the BlackBerry Thunder (RIM’s rumored touchscreen device) was said to possibly come LTE-ready? An eye-brow raiser for sure since the US networks won’t deploy LTE until 2010. Nevertheless, here’s how it could be done. ASOCS and Fujitsu just announced what they are calling the “world’s first wireless Multicomm processor.” The system-on-chip can run up to three wireless air interfaces such as GSM/EDGE/GPRS, WiFi, HD Mobile Digital TV, and GPS concurrently. Better yet, device manufacturers “using ASOCS ModemX technology can ship a single-chip mainstream MultiComms baseband solution in parallel with LTE development and later add LTE as a low-risk software upgrade.” Get that? LTE or pretty much any other wireless service added via software update.

Are Handset Makers Sexist?

Written by JOJY on May 9, 2008 – 1:50 am -

A new research from Gartner advocates the need to design mobile phones that will answer the needs and wants of the women and children segment.

Though men comprise only 32% of the world’s population, most mobile phones are designed for this gender. Not to mention that most handset designers are also men. Gartner’s research VP, Monica Basso, pointed out:

“Mobile products will have to address gender diversity and demographics, evolving and differentiating into a range of consumer products. This trend, together with the consumerisation of IT and progressive evolution of the worker population towards younger individuals and women will force user organizations to rethink their working structures, environments and processes.”

Very true. As mobile technology evolves, handset makers should learn to ride the wave of the future. If such is the case, it’s possible there might be a profitable niche among the homosexual segment as well.
