Mobile phones have changed the way people communicate. In the same way, smart phones, which provide computer-like functions, have changed the way people use their mobile phones.
Smart phones differ from ordinary mobile phones in two simple ways: how they are built and what they can do. Currently, the Apple 3GS iPhone and the BlackBerry Bold are arguably two of the best smart phones available in the market. Here's how they match-up against each other:
The iPhone's revolutionary touchscreen design has set the standard for future generations of smart phones. Nokia and Samsung have developed similar designs for their smart phones. There are also more than a hundred iPhone clones out in the market, all trying to cash in on the iPhone's status. The 3GS iPhone looks virtually the same as its predecessor, the iPhone 3G. The Blackberry Bold is the best looking BlackBerry so far, but the iPhone's design is an instant classic. Winner: iPhone 3GS
It takes a bit of time to get used to both the 3GS iPhone and the BlackBerry Bold. BlackBerry has always been known for usability focused on business applications. The BlackBerry phone has shortcut keys to get things done quickly, however, it's still easier and faster to master the iPhone 3GS. Winner: iPhone 3GS
The iPhone 3GS has a 3.5-inch screen with 320 x 480 pixels resolution and 16M colors. With a small 2.6-inch screen and only 16K colors, the Bold lags behind in this department not just against the iPhone but with other top smart phones as well. Winner: Apple iPhone 3GS
The BlackBerry Bold's large keyboard took up some of the space that could have been used for the display but it's worth it because it's a pleasure typing in the full QWERTY keyboard, which has a sure and fast response. The iPhone's virtual keyboard is flashy but it takes time to master fast and accurate typing. Though there's an error correction system, it's not reliable if there are a large number of mistakes. Functionality beats flashy in this round. Winner: BlackBerry Bold
When it comes to applications, no smart phone comes close to the iPhone because it is the easiest platform to develop applications for. With thousands of developers creating millions of applications for the Apple App Store, the sky's the limit for the Apple 3GS iPhone. Winner: Apple iPhone
SPEED & CONNECTIVITY
With an ARM Cortex A8 processor clocking 600 MHz and HDSPA speed up to 7.2 Mbps, it's no wonder the 'S' in Apple iPhone 3GS stands for speed. However, the BlackBerry Bold is no slouch as it has a 624 MHz processor. Both smart phones are capable of communicating over Quad Band GSM network supporting frequency bands of 850/900/1800/1900, both are GPRS, EDGE and WiFi enabled, and both have Bluetooth A2DP support and USB Connectivity. While the BlackBerry Bold only has an HSDPA speed of 3.6 Mbps, there's really no speed difference because there are currently no service providers that give 7.2 Mbps. Winner: Draw
The camera has been the iPhone's "weakness" as a smart phone, but not over the BlackBerry Bold. The iPhone 3GS features a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus, a decent 640 x 480 resolution at 30fps and excellent audio. The BlackBerry Bold has a standard 2-megapixel camera with an LED flash. Winner: Apple iPhone 3GS
With 16GB and 32GB models, there's no question that the iPhone 3GS trumps the BlackBerry, which only has 1GB of internal memory and can only support up to 8GB of external memory. Winner: iPhone 3GS
CALL QUALITY & BATTERY LIFE
The Apple iPhone 3GS is a worthy successor to its predecessors and the BlackBerry Bold is the best BlackBerry phone ever made. The iPhone 3GS is a consumer phone with something for everyone while the BlackBerry Bold maintains BlackBerry's reputation as a business gadget. At the end of the day, it's what the user needs that matters the most.

No one doubts that cell phone is one of the most used consumer electronics worldwide. But have you ever asked yourself how does a cell phone work? What is a cell phone?
The amazing fact about a cell phone is that it is a radio - a very special one. The gurus in the line are Bell (1876), Tesla (1880) followed by Marconi and Bose (late 19th century). It is known that the concept of cell phone was produced by Bell Laboratories with the permission of FCC (Federal Communication Commission), and had everything to do with broadcasting and sending a radio message out over the airwaves.
In cell phone technology cells divide the city, allowing for the facility to be frequently reused throughout the city. Millions can simultaneously avail of it.
In devices that are half-duplex (walkie-talkies and CB radios) two communicators use a single frequency. This means that at a single point of time only one can talk. On the other hand a cell phone being a full duplex tool has two frequencies: one for talking and the other for listening. Thus a real-life conversation can take place. Cell phones glide through 1,664 channels whereas the walkie-talkie group has to be content with only 40. The walkie-talkie and the CB radio respectively reaches out to 1 mile and 5 miles but the cell phones, because of their ability to switch from cell to cell can cover incredible distances, even while driving at top speed. Each cell is approximately 10 square miles.
The cells are usually depicted as hexagons. The unique frequency tiers avoid all possibilities of cross connections. Generally a carrier of cell phone can avail of 832 radio frequencies in a city. Each cell phone uses 395 voice channels (per carrier), that is 56 voice channels per cell. It means 56 persons can simultaneously say hello on the phone. In digital transmission technology the number of channels increases even further. For each cell phone 168 channels is available.
The distinctiveness about cell phones is their low-power transmitters. Most use 2 strengths: 0.6 watts and 0.3 watts. In comparison it is 4 watts for CB radios. The advantage of this is that it can be frequently reused consuming less power. Cell phones are battery operated. The lower the power the smaller the battery. This makes the set handy and light.
For cellular technology a city requires a good number of base stations. This can run into some hundreds of towers. But because of the huge number of users costs per head remain very low. Each carrier has one centre called MTSO or Mobile Telephone Switching Office. Its work is to see to all the connections.
Cell phones each have codes, which enable identification of the phone, its user and its server. When someone tries to reach a phone the first thing is to locate the SID (system identification code) on the control channel, that is find out if the phone is within range or not. A message relays no-service when it is out of range. But when the SID is received then the next step is to find out whether the call is within its own home zone or not. The phone also tracks the location of the phone called on a database. Thus the MTSO knows the cell of the called number and caller. Communication is transmitted through the control channel and it is this link that activates the phone being called and calling.
These are the facts of a cell phone as explained for a layman. It is always advisable to know at least the basics of a cell phone since it has become an integral part of our life.

Due to its low cost nature this service is highly popular among the teenagers and public these days.
First you have to know some important facts and trivia about the SMS messaging service. Basically the idea of SMS messaging was come in the early 1980s. But this service was come to an effect in 1985 for and to GSM mobile handsets only. After that it became available for each and every telecom technology like CDMA, AMPS, Satellite phones and even Landlines too. Surprisingly, some online messengers are also providing the messenger to mobile and mobile to messenger SMS facilities. Basically SMS is a short message of at most 160 characters, which can be written by using mobile keypads in general. It can be sent from a mobile to another mobile. To overcome the limitation of the 160 character limit the Long message service is also there. Long Message service is nothing but the collection of some SMSs. Basically a Long Message of more than 160 character uses to divide itself in some 160 character SMS. Then each and every 160-character phrase sent one by one to the receiver’s mobile phone. Generally all the digital mobile phones do have the feature of short message service option.
Due to the improvement of SMS some monophonic ring tones can also be sent through SMS using some special format. Later the scope of SMS was increased and the technology enables the man to send likes of pictures and video clips using GPRS system from one mobile set to another. But this service is named Multimedia Messaging Service or simply the MMS. But now it is possible to do something like MMS through SMS. The SMS can be sent in special text formatting in likes of bold and italics. Also some icons, animations, sound effects, pictures, and special ring tones can be sent through SMS these days. This type of Short Messaging Service is known as Enhanced Messaging Service or simply the EMS. According to the researchers this EMS service is the intermediate stage between the SMS system and the MMS system. But this EMS system seems to grab some rapid popularity!
Now, the following statistics about the Short Message Service seems to be really interesting. In 1995, the initial stages of SMS, each and every customer used to send a SMS once in every two and half month. Again, in early 2000s each and every customer was sending some 30 to 40 SMS in every month. Again some 9 Million SMS were sent among the mobile users in the very first day of 2007 that’s too only in UK!
Short Message Service is too much successful due its low cost nature. Again you need not to reply at that instant when you receive the SMS. These are the some of the facts that makes the SMS really popular.
Some literature minded people do believe that the short nature of words will kill the art of literature some day. But to people, interaction is more important than the literature. So here is the high possibility the progress of the SMS system will continue.

When the cell phone first appeared on the Chinese market in the late 1980s it cost 10,000-20,000 yuan, and was the size of a brick. Regarded as the ultimate status symbol, it was called the da ge da, meaning very influential person. At that time, sales of mobile phones were under state control, and stocks were limited. Purchasers were required to place an order and make an 80 percent down payment. How things have changed! Mobiles are now available in multiple choices of size, color and function, on request.
China has become the world's largest mobile phone manufacturing base and consumer market. In the first quarter of 2008, the total mobile phone shipment in China reached 134 million units, increasing 34.5% year over year. While the subscriber base of mobile services reached 480 million at the end of the first quarter of 2008, which increased approximately 20 million when compared to the statistic data at the end of last year.
With expanding the industrial scale and quickening the pace of innovation, the entire domestic mobile terminal industry begins to step into the world, seeking new markets, technologies, capital and other resources for more development space. To cater to these demands, the IMIE'2007 has invited overseas buyers from 24 countries and regions, including 7 overseas mobile operators and 17 multinational purchasing delegations. Their purchasing lists include HSDPA/GSM/CDMA mobile handsets, PDAs, smart phones and other mobile devices, as well as components and accessories.
When it comes to affordable iPhone clones, Meizu seems to be leading the pack now that they've unveiled the pricing for their M8 cell phone. The 4GB model with built-in camera will go for 0 while the 8GB version will go for 0. The entry-level model (with no camera) will go for only 5 at 4GB and 5 at 8GB. Compare that to the iPhone's 9/9 price and suddenly Meizu's option doesn't look so bad, though it's still an iPhone clone.

In Tecnology sebuah perusahaan China malah membuat terobosan sebaliknya, smartphone yang menggunakan sistem operasi Windows XP.
Smartphone pertama dengan Windows XP yang diberi nama xpPhone itu dipamerkan dalam pameran akbar Computex di Taipei, Taiwan, Jumat (5/6). xpPhone dibuat oleh In Technology, perusahaan di Kota Guangzhou, China bagian selatan.
"Produk tersebut akan dipasarkan di China sekitar tiga bulan lagi dan baru kemudian ke seluruh dunia," kata Brad Wu, wakil presiden In Technology.
Seperti smartphone umumnya, pada keadaan diam, sistem operasinya berada pada mode stand by. Namun, begitu ada panggilan atau SMS masuk langsung aktif kembali. Baterainya dapat bertahan hingga 7 jam waktu aktif. Namun, dengan pilihan baterai lebih besar dapat diperpanjang sampai 12 jam.
Perangkat ini bisa dikatakan gabungan antara ponsel dan komputer saku. Prosesornya buatan AMD yang telah dikustomisasi dengan sebutan AMD Super Mobile. Namun, pihak In Technology bungkam soal spesifikasinya. Sementara penyimpan memori menggunakan hardisk 120 gigabyte.
Bagian badannya dapat digeser pada posisi landscape untuk mengeluarkan keyboard QWERTY yang tersembunyi. Layarnya menggunakan LCD touchscreen selebar 4,8 inci dengan resolusi 800x480 pixel. Beratnya 400 gram dan tebal 2,5 centimeter.
xpPhone sudah dilengkapi koneksi WiFi, GPS, dan pilihan untuk WiMax. Di akhir tahun, In Technology juga akan menyediakan versi yang mendukung TD-SCDMA, teknologi 3G yang dikembangkan dan dipakai sendiri di China.(PCWorld)

if Nokia has game aplication in their phone called N-gage, why not SONY ?
as long as the company has its hands in both manufacturing handsets and game consoles [Playstation Portable}. As a top brand manufacture for both product the idea is not overwhelming or far fetched object.
Sony Ericsson president Hideki Komiyama discusses his struggle to reposition the company as one of the world's top three phone makers. Among bright ideas and desperate measures mulled over, the man in charge lets slip that the plan is not far-fetched to consider. Even a PlayStation-branded phone? "Could happen," he is quoted as saying. Making handheld game mix with mobile phones maybe the breakthrough Sony has been waiting for to grab bigger slice of the market.
Things haven't looked great for Sony Ericsson -- which reported its sales were down 50% during the first quarter -- for quite a piece of time now.
Well, now Sony's CFO has admitted that falling demand combined with a "gap" in its product portfolio has created problems for the company. He also acknowledged that the company needs to raise about 100 million euros by the end of this fiscal year (March of 2010) to keep on trucking.
Sony Ericsson is reportedly considering numberless cash-raising options, but no plans are yet set in stone.
The mobile phone market is getting tougher for the highend smartphone, but there is lots of room for the low end market section. And Sony Ericsson will give more performance for the same amount of money compare with other mobile product in the same price range.
Pasar tidak begitu bagus bagi Sony Ericsson - yang melaporkan penjualan yang telah turun 50% selama kuartal pertama - sepanjang tahun ini.
Nah, sekarang dari CFO Sony telah mengakui bahwa permintaan telah jatuh, dikombinasikan dengan "celah" dalam portfolio produk telah menciptakan masalah bagi perusahaan. Dia juga mengakui bahwa perusahaan perlu meningkatkan sekitar 100 juta euro pada akhir tahun fiskal ini (Maret 2010) untuk tetap muncul di pasar dunia.
Sony Ericsson dilaporkan mempertimbangkan beberapa pilihan, tanpa meningkatkan pengeluaran uang cash, namun belum ada rencana yang ditetapkan.
Pasar Ponsel semakin ketat untuk highend smartphone, tetapi masih ada banyak tempat untuk pasar bagian akhir rendah. Dan Sony Ericsson akan memberikan kinerja yang sama untuk sejumlah uang dibandingkan dengan produk ponsel lainnya dalam kisaran harga yang sama.

Fitur-fitur pada rilis ini antara lain:
*Mesin render yang lebih tangguh
Opera Mobile 9.7 Beta menggunakan mesin render yang bernama Presto 2.2, sama dengan yang digunakan di Opera 10 untuk PC. Presto 2.2 ini menawarkan kecepatan dalam membuka halaman web.
Dengan Opera Turbo, data yang masuk ke handphone akan dikompres dulu di server Opera hingga 80%. Dengan demikian, semakin kecil data yang masuk maka semakin kecil pula biaya yang harus Anda keluarkan ketika mengunjungi suatu website menggunakan GPRS/3G. Sebagai catatan, Opera Turbo masih belum final dan masih dalam tahap pengembangan.
*Widget Manager yang lebih bagus
Gears adalah proyek open source-nya Google. Anda bisa membaca lebih jauh tentang Gears DISINI

The Opera Mobile 9.7 Beta will include the following great features:
Improved rendering engine
*Opera Mobile 9.7 Beta uses the Presto 2.2 rendering engine, which will also be used in the Opera 10 desktop browser. Presto 2.2 offers faster page loading, and we're excited to use this state-of-the-art rendering engine and be at the forefront of standards support with 100/100 on Acid 3.
Finally we can show you Opera Turbo on mobile! Opera Turbo accelerates the browsing experience by reducing bandwidth consumption up to 80%. Many of you will be familiar with Opera's compression technology from using Opera Mini, and with Opera Mobile 9.7 you'll get the best of both worlds - a full-fledged browser with extra Turbo capabilities. It's not the full version of Opera Turbo yet (yes, that's a Beta feature in a Beta release), but we couldn't wait to show you this cool feature.
*Improved Widget Manager
Opera Widgets are small, handy Web applications that run locally on your mobile phone. Our new Widget Manager has improved usability and design, and runs independently from the browser.
Gears is a Google open source project that enables more powerful web applications, by adding new features to your web browser. Read more about Gears on Opera Labs.
Hardware acceleration with OpenGL ES support, ensuring smoother scrolling, panning and a more fluid user interface.
*Installation on storage card is now possible, and the Beta happily coexists with preinstalled versions of Opera Mobile.
*Better IME support (although a lot of non-standard 3rd party IME applications still make this a difficult task).
*Better performance and feedback when clicking links.

"Ovi Share ... is planned to be maintained in its current state," a spokesman for the company said, adding Nokia would keep the service up and running.
Nokia built the service -- seen as one of the cornerstones of its services strategy -- on the acquisition of U.S. firm Twango in 2007, and opened it to the public at the Mobile World Congress trade show in February 2008.
"It seems like an admission of failure -- which is healthy at this point," said GC Research analyst Tero Kuittinen.
Nokia has not unveiled usage numbers, but analysts say these have remained low due to draw of already established sharing sites such as Facebook or Yahoo Inc's Flickr.
"They definitely need to collaborate with Facebook instead of trying to replace it. Same thing with Twitter and Flickr," Kuittinen said.
To cope with slowing phone demand Nokia is building a new business from Internet services -- such as games or maps -- but said on April 28 it would scale back separate investment plans due to the slowdown, and focus on merging the delivery of services.
Nokia, which reported its first-ever quarterly pretax loss for January-March, due to sinking phone demand, is in the middle of a big cost-cutting program, having shed 3,500 jobs so far.
Shares in Nokia closed 2.8 percent lower at 10.28 euros in Helsinki, compared with 0.9 percent weaker DJ Stoxx European technology index.

At a briefing at Google's headquarters in Mountain View, California, executives demonstrated tools to knit its search product on personal computers more closely with cell phones, as well as products to automatically troll the Internet for research topics and generate detailed spreadsheets.
Google also showed off a new feature, available immediately, that lets users view only the most timely search results, narrowing the results for a topic to the past 24 hours or the past week.
Google said it will search blogs and news sites, as well as the general information available online, to provide a fresher picture of certain subjects.
This feature comes amid the rising popularity of so-called real time search products, like the search feature on microblogging site Twitter, which allow users to search up-to-the-minute developments about certain topics online.
Google said users will be able to display results by type of information, such as videos.
A new feature under development will allow a search performed on a desktop PC to automatically show up when the same user logs on to Google from a Web-enabled cell phone.
A tool called Google Squared, available next month, will automatically troll for information on the Internet to create spreadsheets about the topics a person searches.
In the demonstration, a search for small dogs generated a table that listed different breeds of dogs, with key information such as weight and height.
Google executives said they did not expect the product to increase friction with online content publishers who are concerned Google is profiting from their work.
In response to a question about this, Google Vice President of Search Products and User Experience Marissa Mayer said Google Squared is very strong in citing where the content in the tables it creates comes from, ultimately driving traffic back to the content creator site.
"The tools we're launching today offer whole new ways of searching that haven't previously been available," said Mayer.

The new Nokia E75 has just officially emerged and marks a new breed of Eseries device. Just as the E71 broke new ground, the Nokia E75 is set to follow suit, cementing its unique place on the email and messaging scene as an ultra compact communicator.
Nokia E75 doesn’t follow any conventional paths. Add the fact that it’s the first Eseries device to support N-Gage gaming and you get a flavour of how progressive and exciting this pocket communicator truly is - it barely stretches that tape measure to 111.8mm x 50mm x 14.4mm, with a QVGA screen that measures in at 2.4-inches.
Squeezed into this compact shell are all the hallmarks of a leading Eseries device. The Nokia E75 comes loaded with the new Nokia Messaging service for slick email HTML email support. Plus it’s packing a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, high speed HSDPA access, integrated A-GPS with Nokia Maps, and a music player with a 3.5mm standard audio jack.
Kai Oistamo, executive vice president at Nokia, had to say about the Nokia E75 and its inspiration:
“With the Nokia E75 we took a lot of inspiration from the Nokia 9300, which was our first mini communicator. Owners of the Nokia 9300 loved the messaging functionality a full keyboard provided, but also used the traditional phone keypad a great deal. With the Nokia E75 we kept these essential ingredients, significantly upgraded all of the features and made it as compact as possible.”
Good news for those people who's looking forward and wait with great anticipation for a mobile phone with GOOGLE ANDROID operating system.

Japan's mobile services use third-generation networks, which allow higher-speed data transmission than the second-generation services that still dominate in China. Sharp Corp, Panasonic Corp and other Japanese cellphone makers have struggled to make inroads in the Chinese market, the world's biggest, partly due to technological differences while rivals like Nokia have been more successful.
The Nikkei business daily reported that Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso and Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao are expected to agree on an alliance in new equipment and broadband services, when they meet on Wednesday in Beijing.
The two countries will also jointly conduct research applications and develop content such as video and music, the paper added.
Jun Mizutani, an official at Japan's Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications said the two countries' are likely to cooperate on third-generation and future-generation mobile phone services but said specific details had not been decided.
China aims to bolster the technological prowess of its companies through the move. Foreign firms currently account for more than 70 percent of China's cellphone market, the paper said.
Japanese cellphone makers are eager to expand overseas as the domestic market has matured and phone sales have fallen with the introduction of a new sales model.

To cope with slowing phone demand Nokia is building a new business from mobile Internet services -- like games or maps -- but is scaling back separate investment plans due to the slowdown, and focusing on merging the delivery of services.
"We are moving into Ovi, into a platform strategy," Tero Ojanpera, head of the entertainment and communities operations at Nokia, told Reuters in an interview on the sidelines of the Nokia developer summit in Monaco. Ovi is Nokia's much-anticipated online store which is set to launch in May.
Nokia, which made its first ever quarterly pretax loss in January-March, is cutting annual costs at its key handset unit alone by more than 700 million euros ($911 million) to counter plunging demand.
Nokia said on Tuesday it would cut up to 360 jobs at its Internet services unit, while it would cut an additional 90 jobs elsewhere in the organization.
The Apple store has proved the market for software supermarkets in the mobile world, with one billion applications downloaded in less than a year.
"As much as iPhone and App Store is a success for Apple, it's a humiliating defeat for the rest of the mobile industry," said Bengt Nordstrom, chief executive of telecoms consultant Northstream.
"Twenty years of efforts from operators and vendors to create mobile applications that customers like is overtaken in a heartbeat by someone that has never done it before," Nordstrom said.
Many of the operators are now embracing different software stores aiming to generate more data traffic from its clients and to avoid customer turnover.
"We are going to make it as easy as possibly for our customers to buy from whatever shop," said Steve Glagow, vice president for marketing operations at Orange.
But not all operators -- Nokia said operator billing would not be available in the United States when its Ovi store opens, as it had said earlier.
SCALE KEY VS APPLE, GOOGLE
Nokia's market is potentially bigger than Apple's -- it says the Ovi store will reach some 50 million consumers when it opens in May, while Apple has so far sold some 20 million iPhones.
"Nokia's timing is absolutely right," said Patrick Bossert, director of marketing strategies in Europe and Asia at telecoms services firm Convergys.
"Like any publishing market, its about the economies of scale," Bossert said.
While hundreds of millions of people use its phones every day, Nokia has yet to match Apple's success in getting people to pay for software downloads, while it has also lagged Apple in creating a major following among software developers.
"Nokia's biggest challenge in the developer space is to win mindshare from Apple and Google, to provide tools and a platform to facilitate rapid development of innovative experiences," said Ford Davidson, CEO of Seattle-based Dashwire, which makes software for linking cellphone content to the Web.
Nokia's Ojanpera said the firm was trying to attract iPhone developers to create attractive programmes for Nokia phones.
"We will have the richest and the most interactive platform for the developers," Ojanpera said in the interview. "This is not only about high-end, this is about scale."
Nokia said it also hopes to benefit compared to other stores from its faster publishing of submitted applications or content, and more liberal policies on content which goes head to head with its own software offering.
"We are Switzerland, essentially," Eric John, head of media products marketing at Nokia told the conference.
The overall mobile phone market is expected to shrink 10 percent this year, as consumers rein in spending and handset sellers try to clear out unsold phones. Including the job cuts announced on Tuesday Nokia has slashed some 3,500 jobs across the organization to cut costs this year.

HELSINKI (Reuters) - Sony Ericsson will take some time developing a phone using Google's Android operating system, its chief executive said on Friday, but declined to say when such a handset would be available.
Most handset vendors are rushing out phones using Android software, hoping to benefit from consumer demand, but Sony Ericsson said it would be some time before its own offering was launched.
"It does require a lot of evaluation, as well as a lot of testing, a lot of acceptance from a consumer viewpoint, and there is still some time to go," Chief Executive Hideki Komiyama told Reuters in an interview.
"Looking ahead I think that we see this as one of the important operating systems, there is no doubt," he said.
Loss-making Sony Ericsson, a joint venture of Japan's Sony Corp and Sweden's Ericsson, has decided to use three operating systems in its high-end phones -- Symbian, Android and Microsoft's Windows Mobile.
"Our focus is on how can we differentiate from the competitors using the same operating system," Komiyama said, adding the firm was focusing its investments on user experience and user interface.
Sony Ericsson reported earlier on Friday a deep loss for January-March and said it aims to cut some 20 percent of jobs as it looks to return to profit.

HELSINKI (Reuters) - The struggling cellphone market has not yet touched bottom, the chief financial officer of top mobile phone maker Nokia was quoted as saying on Friday.
"We don't believe that the mobile phone markets have touched the bottom of this recession yet," CFO Rick Simonson told Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat.
"(But) the clearing out of inventories was brisk at the start of the year, which has increased our belief in the future," he added.
Nokia, on Thursday, reported a 27-percent fall in January-March sales and its first-ever quarterly pretax loss, but calmed jittery investors when it said it saw signs of stabilizing demand in the tumbling handset market.
Nokia Chief Executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo said that while the firm believed the market was no longer in free-fall, it was too early to conclude that demand had touched bottom.

The N86 8MP comes with a wide-angle Carl Zeiss Tessar lens for panoramic pictures, shorter latencies and variable aperture for super sharp photos. The fast mechanical shutter ensures pictures with less motion-blur, while the dual LED camera flash is powerful enough for excellent photography and video capture.

“People demand mobile cameras that take excellent pictures in all light conditions,” says Juha-Pekka Sipponen, Director, Nokia Nseries. “That’s why the aperture of the Nokia N86 8MP is comparable to that of a high-quality, stand-alone digital camera. Whether it’s running with the bulls in Pamplona or capturing the panoramic beauty of a sunrise over Sydney, the Nokia N86 8MP will take brilliantly clear, wide-angle images that are instantly geotagged to be uploaded onto sites like Ovi Share or Flickr.”
"When it comes to taking the best digital photos, it’s the quality of the lens and the sensor that count, not just the quantity of pixels. The Nokia N86 8MP is the first mobile device with variable aperture, adding to the Carl Zeiss Tessar lens for excellent results. It has never been easier to capture special moments in such a great quality," says Helmut Heier of Carl Zeiss.

Wah ternyata mahal banget, jauh lebih mahal dari harga pasaran di luar negeri,rupanya Telkomsel mau menjual gengsi bagi para pemakainya. Harga bundling Telkomsel itulah yg membuat mahal. Memang pasaran smartphone, PDA highend faktor merk dan gengsi begitu kentalnya. Mending beli di Amazon online shop aja.
Padahal iphone generasi ke 2 juga sudah siap dirilis yg akan membuat iphone lama jadi obsolete dan ketinggalan.
Kalau mau cari smartphone keren banyak pilihan lain yg memiliki fitur hampir sama dengan iphone dan yg pasti memiliki harga reasonable.
Bila anda merasa harga iPhone 3G ini terlalu mahal, kenapa tidak pertimbangkan produk lain yang sejenis dengan harga yang lebih terjangkau? Barangkali daftar alternatif pengganti iPhone berikut ini bisa jadi bahan pertimbangan, meski tentu tidak selalu harus sepadan secara head-to-head baik dalam fitur dan kelengkapannya.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 si SEX1
Blackberry (Storm, Curve dan Bold),
HTC Touch HD dan Touch Pro,
Samsung Omnia HD dan Samsung S8300,
Nokia (N97, N96 dll),
LG (Renoir, Arena dan Cookie),
apa mau yg murah lagi khan ada LG Viewty [model iphone] cuman Rp. 4 juta.
Jadi pilihan atas sebuah smartphone berharga premium dengan segudang fitur seperti HSDPA, WiFi, kamera berkualitas, internet browsing, GPS, layar sentuh hingga dukungan PIM layaknya sebuah PDA tentu tidak semata-mata didasarkan pada merk atau gengsi semata. Apalagi bila harga yang ditawarkan di pasaran dalam negeri kelewat mahal bila dibanding dengan harga produk yang sama di luar negeri, atau bila dibanding dengan produk pesaing yang tak kalah baiknya. Smartphone dibuat untuk mereka yang cerdas, termasuk cerdas dalam memilih ponsel cerdas.
Make a smart choice, semua kembali kepada cita rasa dan duit pribadi kita sendiri.
