I’ve seen some strange gadgets out of Japan over the years, and the latest oddity is the Sharp RoBoHoN. It’s a robot that has a phone built in. It has the ability to make calls and check email over a LTE/3G connection.
Sprint has announced something that won’t make people on its pre-paid or post-paid networks happy. One of the big draws for Sprint for many smartphone users has been their unlimited data plans. Now, Sprint is set to begin throttling data for the top 5% of users on its network.
Every parent on the planet wants their kid to be happy and well-adjusted. That means at some point early in the kid’s life you have to give them the freedom to roam and play. The problem for parents is that giving children the freedom to go places and visit friends by themselves can be very nerve-wracking.
There are many reasons why people love their smartphones. They provide a seamless blend of communication and computing, are easy to use, and always with you. However, there are times when simple cell phones are still useful, especially when it comes to battery life.
Some people out there prefer a product that looks good to a product that has more functionality. There’s not anything wrong with that and if you are that sort of person and have a big budget for a mobile phone, Gresso has a new offering that looks pretty cool.
I’m huge fan of wireless charging for smartphones and other devices. The problem with wireless charging is that there are multiple wireless charging formats on the market and they’re not all compatible. That means you could purchase a case for your iPhone that would work on one charging base, but not the other.
While some of our phones are still designed in the West, most of them are manufactured in China. In Beijing, the latest Xiaomi Phone was officially launched. It will be carried by Chinese-specific carriers, such as China Unicom and China Telecom.
Have you ever wondered how a gecko is able to climb walls with ease, and hold itself on ceilings? Well, this post will not answer your questions, because my good friend still has $50 on the suction cup theory and I don’t want to burst his bubble.
It’s more of a fact that everyday people are becoming increasingly attached to their mobile phones. For one, it’s what gives most people a “lifeline” to the outside world; it’s what they use to communicate with their friends and family.
If you like your smartphones to have cool features and a cool design, the new Huawei Ascend P1 S might get your motor revving. The smartphone is hailed as the “world’s thinnest” and I can believe it at 6.68mm thick.
I think it’s kind of sad how a lot of people are becoming increasingly attached to their gadgets like smartphones and tablets. I mean, finding them to be useful is one thing. But feeling like you can’t last a day without them?
Walk around anywhere and you will see hoards of smartphones (and dumb phones) being used by people all around the globe. You can wager that a big chunk of the devices you are seeing are using a GSM network for communication.
When some companies say rugged you have to read the fine print to see just how rugged the device is. For instance, many rugged smartphones are only water resistant for a few minutes or can only resist a spill.
When it comes to weird gadgets and phones, Asia has a lock on the category. You can bet if there is a strange feature to be added, Asian phone makers will add it. For instance, the new Fujitsu and Folli Follie (a Chinese fashion retailer) tie-up that resulted in the F-022 mobile phone.
Sometimes, all it takes to size an object up is one look. It doesn’t have to be a very long gaze or detailed inspection. And in the case of Sharp’s new AQUOS IS11H Phone, it just takes a second or two to glance at the images and know that these phones are geared towards Japanese women.
