Nokia has launched 3 new CDMA Mobile phones. One amongst them is Nokia 1506 CDMA. A simple and easy phone to handle and carry.
Nokia 1506 will be available in the market before the end of 2009. Though Nokia has not announced the prices of this phone as yet.
The Nokia 5330 Mobile TV edition launches today, ushering in a new era for Mobile TV. The stunning-looking device is sure to drive appeal amongst the 300 million people expected to be watching mobile TV around the world by 2012. The 5330 isn’t just about Mobile TV though, this 3G speed machine also packs in the latest in social networking, music and gaming in one sleek slide-design.
Based on DVB-H technology, the Nokia 5330 Mobile TV edition sports a 2.4-inch screen for super sharp images on the move. The headset doubles as an antennae for clear reception and together with Nokia’s own Electronic Programme Guide (EPG) it makes watching TV on the move a joy.
The device also packs Nokia Messaging so users can keep on top of email and Instant Messaging, the latter supporting Windows Live Messenger, Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ and AOL amongst others. Pictures are taken care of by the 3.2-megapixel snapper, whilst dedicated music keys take care of the audio side of things. It’ll also sport links to Nokia Music Store, where available and the device is also compatible with Comes with Music.
No need to worry about the 5330 running out of juice before the final whistle either. With six hours of battery for TV watching, you’ll be able to watch a couple of matches and still have time for a few calls. Standby time runs to about 14 days on this series 40 based device.
More than 30 operators around the world are rolling out Mobile TV services now, with Austria, Finland, Ghana, Kenya, India, Italy, Namibia, Nigeria, Netherlands, Philippines and Switzerland all boasting services. It’s expected that another 20 countries will be offering mobile TV within the next two years.
The Nokia 5330 Mobile TV edition will retail for €155 before taxes and subsidies.
The Samsung Corby, available across Europe, is a full-touch handset that places users at the center of the social media revolution with a wide range of social networks support, such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. The new mobile complements the company’s touch screen strategy, “touch for every lifestyle,” by targeting the youth market.
“We see strong growth opportunities in this sector and will continue to pioneer new markets with innovative technology. The Corby is consistent with Samsung’s legacy of developing new products and technologies designed for specific audiences and bringing new devices quickly to market,” explained JK Shin, Executive Vice President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ Mobile Communications Division.
The device represents a complete makeover for the youth segment, with its eye-catching profile featuring two-tone diagonal contours. The Samsung Corby is notable for both its body design and colors – which mark a significant break from the way full touch phones are usually designed. It is available in bold color options such as Jamaican Yellow, Cupid Pink, Minimal White, and Festival Orange so that users can choose their favorite colors.
“Globally, we are number one for full-screen touch phones and recognize the importance of social networks in the modern mobile industry. Samsung’s target audiences are at the heart of its business strategy and the design and functionality of Samsung Corby meets the needs of a highly digitally connected and style conscious youth audience – as does the affordable price point,” continued JK Shin.
Samsung Corby S3653 Specifications:
Samsung Corby S3653 will be available in India for Rs.9600
The free ride is over, ladies. Go ahead and fire up the Google Maps Apps for your iPhone (or iPhone touch), and you may well run into something you’ve avoided for so, so long: an ad. That’s right: Google Maps now shows advertisements. Things fall apart.
As you know, I don’t have an iPhone, nor will I ever, but here you can see what happens when you search for “sushi” in the City of New York. The ad itself, as Search Engine Land agrees, is rather unobtrusive; it’s not like one of those dumb Hulu ads that prevent you from using the site while it airs.
SEL also throws in some speculation that I’ve never seen before, that Apple is working on its own Map App, one that, presumably, wouldn’t bombard you with ads.
The 21 Club is a fancy restaurant on West 52nd Street. Like, we’re talking suit and tie fancy.

Portable Uniblue PowerSuite 2009 v188.8.131.52 | 22MB
Uniblue's PowerSuite 2009 combines RegistryBooster, SpeedUpMyPC and DriverScanner, creating the ultimate solution for updating your PC and delivering improved system stability and increased computer speeds.
Your PC is a complex combination of advanced technologies which needs managing to get the best from it.

Combining three powerful Uniblue utilities in one package PowerSuite helps ensure total system speed and security. DriverScanner updates drivers to improve network and hardware functionality. RegistryBooster scans and defrags your PC’s registry removing harmful entries. Finally SpeedUpMyPC wipes sensitive files and implements various performance enhancements.
Use PowerSuite to:
- Maximize your computer’s processing power
- Accelerate data download speeds
- Scan, backup and update your PC drivers
- Scan and optimize your PC’s registry, improving system stability
- Benefit from other privacy protection and file shredding features
DriverScanner is the simple and reliable tool with which to update your system’s drivers, boosting system performance, releasing improved functionality and increasing operability with networks and hardware. This powerful application will scan your system to identify drivers to be updated, and deliver the tools you need to download and then install those drivers, while, at the same time, keeping a full record of all activity and allowing you to backup and restore your drivers. Combining a sophisticated system scanning engine with a characteristically elegant, clear and simple-to-use Uniblue styled interface, DriverScanner dramatically improves your computing experience.
RegistryBooster is the safest and most trusted solution to clean and optimize your system, freeing it from registry errors and fragmented entries. Using advanced error detection technology, RegistryBooster automatically identifies missing, corrupt or possibly harmful items in your Windows registry, dramatically enhancing performance and general stability.
One mouse click and our registry cleaner does the rest. And using RegistryBooster regularly keeps your PC free from errors and from obsolete, unused or unwanted files. RegistryBooster is trusted by specialist IT technicians and home PC users around the world to solve all their registry based performance problems.

Remember when Steve Ballmer balked and Dan Hesse hissed at the idea of Android as a viable contender in the smartphone game? One thought there weren't enough handsets running it and the other thought the OS was in too early a stage. Well, is it any wonder why both companies operating under their perspective foresight are fighting for their lives? Seems like everyday we get wind of another device from another well known manufacture building hardware to house the Google OS.
The latest? Etna, an LG first. Etna showed her legs in a Vodafone booth during the IFA trade show in Germany, and she's got a nice set of gams.

But that's okay for now. For now it's a simple satisfaction knowing that there is yet another Android device from another manufacture poised to take a position in the pecking order.

Korean-based Hard Kernel were kind enough to pass along some information about their ODROID Entertainment Device. Packed with great specs, it’s definitely a unique looking device. It’s pretty obvious from the looks of it, but their rep tells us that the unit is based on games as right now it’s among the top categories in the iTunes catalog. Speaking of Apple, we’re also told that the ODROID uses the same chipset as the iPhone 3GS.
Here are a couple of other notable specs:
* Memory: ROM: 2GB(TFLASH)/ RAM: 512 MB(DDR2)
* Display: 3.5″ TFT-LCD capacitive touch screen/ 320 x 480 (HVGA) resolution
* Device Control: 4way direction-pad, 8keys, Touch-sensitive volume control

What do you guys think?
Given the current state of Android games, is this something you’d consider? Your thoughts on all those buttons?
You know that HTC Hero that is rumored to hit Sprint sometime over the next few months? That one that’s allegedly going to be up for pre-order at Best Buy stores in a few weeks? Yeah, well it ain’t gonna look like the Hero overseas. If the images here prove to be right, the US version will not have the HTC chin we’ve all come to (ahem) love.
According to a site called 8080.net, the phone you’re looking at is the Hero200 which recently received its FCC approval. Aside from the design changes, what else is different? It’s hard to say. When it comes to the under-the-hood stuff, all we know is that this has a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 288MB RAM/512MB of ROM, and a 5 megapixel camera with auto focus. All the same as the UK edition.
One of the things that I hate the most about buying smartphones is that the price you see typically isn’t the real price of the phone. You have to hope for instant discounts and often you need to mail in rebates.
Sprint has announced that on October 11 it will be offering the HTC Hero Android phone to its customers for $179.99 after a $50 instant rebate and a $100 mail-in rebate. Best Buy is offering a sweeter deal for the same phone though.
Best Buy will give shoppers who get the Hero for Sprint at Best Buy Mobile the full $150 rebate instantly. That means no mailing in receipts and waiting to get your money. You can get the Hero in Best Buy on October 11.
One of the things I hate about riding in the car with my dad is that he only listens to talk radio. If I wanted to hear people talk I could stay home all day with the wife and her friends (don’t worry she doesn’t read this site). There are fans of talk radio though and there is a new Android app just for you.
Juicy Development has announced that its Talk Radio app originally developed for the iPhone is now available on Android platforms. The app uses the location aware nature of Android devices to locate top talk radio stations in your area.
Once you find talk stations you want to listen to they can be streamed right over the Android device. The app tracks popular talk radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Dr. Laura and others on AM and FM frequencies. The app is available on the Android market now for $1.99.
The guys over at Engadget were able to play with the new T-Mobile Pulse and lucky for us, they recorded the experience. The video is short at just over 2 minutes, but it gives us a glimpse into how T-Mobile and Huawei changed the interface up.
There’s a 9-pane (3×3) home screen which seems somewhat confusing at first. We could see it become pretty convenient once acclimated to it.
Do you remember way back in the early 1800’s when we were all waiting for the first Android Phone to be announced and the entire universe was hoping that it was one of HTC’s new pieces of kit in the “Touch” line? Check the archives – for several months people were persistently suggesting that an Android-based Touch Diamond, Touch Pro or best of all – Touch HD – would be the ultimate Android hardware.
Soon it could be a reality.
Several sources are reporting that the original HTC Touch HD running Windows Mobile 6.1 will be injected with pure nirvana and will become the Android-based HTC Touch HD 2. While the HTC Android’s now run 528MHz processors the Touch HD 2 will be hooked up with a 628MHz version of the Qualcomm chip. Not exactly Snapdragon speed but certainly an upgrade that should quell concerns of OS lag. Other rumored goodies include 3.8-inch touchsreen and 480×800 display according to the leaked info.

Nokia launches a new service to allow web and handset software developers to create and integrate their own applications and services with Ovi mapping and navigation APIs
Nokia has launched a new Ovi applications programming interface (API) and software development kit (SDK), enabling developers to use its mapping and navigation services and integrate their own applications.
The Ovi API and SDK Beta were created to provide an easier method of developing and creating their own applications to be used on Nokia handsets as well as integrate their own services in to existing Ovi applications.
Nokia confirmed it will begin rolling out a number of its web and mobile Ovi API’s and this year, starting with Ovi Maps Player API and Ovi Navigation Player API, which will allow developers to create applications for specific geographic areas, such as additional information on local attractions and services themselves using the SDK.
Applications developed through the Ovi SDK and Ovi API will be available through the Ovi Store in 2010.
Nokia executive vice president of services Niklas Savander said. “The API will simplify the development of applications. It's been too cumbersome in the past to make native apps,” said Savander.
“All this will change. The apps will work on the web and Nokia Symbian devices. The apps will be more personal and relevant, and also means better business opportunities because it will enable better search.”
As much as we’d love to believe otherwise, our gut and Verizon’s track record are both telling us that the BL40 probably bears no resemblance to the Chocolate Touch that Big Red’s about to get. That doesn’t mean LG’s gorgeous mile-long slab isn’t coming to North America, though — we’d heard a long while back that it might be coming to Telus, whose new HSPA network is currently slated for an October launch. Coincidentally, fresh PR out of corporate reveals that the phone will be hitting “the rest of the world” in October following European kickoffs in the middle of this month, and if this isn’t the perfect launch device for a brand new Canadian network, we really can’t think what is. One way or another, LG says the phone will ultimately end up launching in 50 countries around the world — so no matter where you are, you’ve got about a 1 in 4 chance you’ll get a shot at this in the coming months without calling up your importer and taking out a second mortgage.
The Android market has come a long way since its inception and while still considerably behind the Apple App store as far the numbers tell, the market itself may be better all around. I mean out of 70,000 apps in the App Store I’d venture to guess about 12,000 are “pull my finger” apps. Newly added to the Android market are:
* Application screenshots
* Promotional icons
* Improved application descriptions
Also added according to my bud at HTCSource are sports, health, themes and comic categories. No word on when exactly this 1.6 update will drop, but Motorola is expected to ship their upcoming, as of yet unannounced devices with the update already installed. T-mobile and Verizon are expected to follow suit sometime soon. I hope that everyone will get to take advantage of these features so MyTouch and G1 customers aren’t left waiting in the wings for long.
LG Electronics (LG), a global leader and technology innovator in mobile communications, today announced the worldwide retail release of the highly anticipated new Chocolate (LG-BL40). The stunning fourth handset of the Black Label Series will be available in Europe from mid-September before making its way around the world.
With the introduction of this bold new shape, the new Chocolate is essentially reinventing the way consumers view and use mobile phones. Designed with sleek sophistication, the strikingly unconventional 4-inch wide screen opens up an enlarged and more optimal space for “on-the-go” computing, allowing for an entirely new mobile experience that raises the bar of innovation.
Users will see things differently with the widened 21:9 panoramic display that establishes a new level of visual comfort for the reading of web pages and e-mail and dramatically brings videos and games to life with cinematic flair. Going wide also allows for the dual screen era to finally be brought to handsets for enhanced usability, which when combined with LG’s upgraded and intuitive S-Class UI brings a whole new meaning to the words “user friendly”.
“The new LG Chocolate will dramatically change the way we interact with our phones,” said Dr. Skott Ahn, CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The new Chocolate reflects the originality and sophistication of the Black Label Series and like its predecessor, we are confident that the new Chocolate will create its own legacy and further enhance our standing in the market.”
Beginning from the UK, the new LG Chocolate will be released across the Europe in September and will be expanded to the rest of the world from October 2009.

Facebook is rapidly increasing its standing in the mobile world, with the company claiming 65 million users logged on via mobile last month.
And at the Nokia World event, director of Facebook Mobile, Henri Moissinac, said it was driving App Store traffic too.
He claimed half of users had linked their iPhone and iPod touch apps to Facebook via the Facebook Connect technology that's increasing employed by developers so you can send and compare high scores from within apps.
Facebook also announced it was extending its Facebook Connect technology to mobile. Previously it's only been available for web and iPhone.
"Apps are better when you can play them with your friends. With Facebook Connect for mobile, you will now be able to share them with your friends," Moissinac was reported as saying by DigitalBeat.
"We can make the whole web social. Now we are going to do the same with mobile."
ABI Research forecasts that the number of mobile cloud computing subscribers worldwide will grow rapidly over the next five years, rising from 42.8 million subscribers in 2008, (approximately 1.1% of all mobile subscribers) to just over 998 million in 2014 (nearly 19%). Mobile cloud applications move the computing power and data storage away from mobile phones and into the cloud, bringing apps and mobile computing to not just smartphone users but a much broader range of mobile subscribers.
ABI Research recently released a major study of mobile Cloud computing which the company believes is the first published report to examine this disruptive technology model in depth.
According to senior analyst Mark Beccue, “From 2008 through 2010, subscriber numbers will be driven by location-enabled services, particularly navigation and map applications. A total of 60% of the mobile Cloud application subscribers worldwide will use an application enabled by location during these years.”
Some quite innovative applications are already commercially available. Lock manufacturer Schlage, or example, has launched LiNK - a keyless lock system for the home that enables subscribers to remotely control not only the door lock, but heating/cooling, security cameras and light monitors, all via PC or mobile device.
Business productivity applications will soon dominate the mix of mobile cloud applications, particularly collaborative document sharing, scheduling, and sales force management apps.
ABI Research expects some or all of the major PaaS platforms — Google, Amazon AWS, and Force.com - to market their mobile capabilities aggressively starting in 2010.
Beccue concludes by reiterating his finding that, “By 2014, mobile cloud computing will become the leading mobile application development and deployment strategy, displacing today’s native and downloadable mobile applications.”
ABI Research’s new study “Mobile Cloud Computing” details the mobile applications that will lead the growth, the key technologies, players and initiatives involved, new business models that will be introduced, and the barriers that must be overcome. Forecasts include subscribers and revenue by region and application category using mobile cloud applications.

Recent data indicates 95 percent of cell phones currently in use have the ability to receive text messages, and 87 percent of the United States population has a cell phone. Worldwide, an estimated 2.4 billion people are sending and receiving text messages. So you couldn't ask for a larger, more diverse customer base.
Say you have a product or service, you're ready to sell, and you want your pitch to be mobile. Unless you have superior tech expertise or a team of experts, you can go to an established company to deliver your text message marketing campaign. SMS, or Short Message Service, is the technical term for a text message that is a maximum of 160 characters in length. An SMS server allows you to send text messages to a list of mobile phone users, just as easily as if you were sending an e-mail.
Bulk SMS servers allow sending a large number of text messages quickly and easily. The first task is compiling or acquiring the list of people you want to reach. Then most companies that offer bulk SMS servers include programs where information provided is used to create a template from which the text message is developed. These programs allow links and personalization, so the customer's name is included in the text.
Here's a simple example: You are promoting sales of a new CD by a popular rap group through your Website. You can purchase a list of thousands of fans of the group who have registered using their cell phone numbers at various sites. You create a text message offering a free preview of the title track of the CD just by clicking the link in the text message they receive. Within seconds, by using a SMS server/Gateway software, the potential customer is listening to a shortened version of the song, and you're on the way to making a sale.
The final step in the process is contracting with a gateway software provider that is able to send your text messages to various cell phone carriers such as Nextel, T-Mobile, or Sprint. For less than $500, you can have 10,000 text messages delivered. That should sell a lot of CDs.

Text messaging may be a difficult task for some people. The newer models of cell phones are becoming smaller and smaller, and so are the keypads. Inputting messages with the keypad takes a little while to finish.
There is now a PC-to-cell phone text messaging that makes the task a whole lot easier. Using the computer keyboard is so much better than a phone's keypad after all. Using a keyboard is easier because the letters are spread out in individual keys, unlike in a phone's keypad where three or four letters are assigned in one key. This is the primary reason also that abbreviations are common in text messaging.
This service first started in the late 1990s. It was close to real time texting when using a cell phone. Some facilities support a two-way PC to cell phone to PC texting service.
Online text messaging is faster and more cost-effective. Just like regular chat facilities, online text messaging allows you to store contacts and group them. It can send group messages to contacts at a single time, or send individual messages.
Mobile phone companies and wireless phone carriers use the cell phone's built-in info messaging feature to send automatic, system-generated text messages to subscribers. These info messages are usually alerts to new promos and features that could be accessed via the carrier's websites either through a regular or mobile browser.
Text forwards are as popular as email forwards. They are useful tools for info drives or campaigns. Whether for sending invites to a weekend party or to encourage fellow young people to join a walk for a cause, online text messaging is an economical way of spreading the word around.
Online messaging is also handy when mobile phone batteries are dead and one needs to send an important message.
Do you see contact forms on business web pages that allow you to send short messages to their offices? These forms can be programmed to forward messages to an email or to a mobile phone, or even both. As soon as you hit that send button, your notes get to an email or phone inbox and business owners know the precise moment you've sent them a message.
Many websites now have mobile texting features. Some of them are Friendster, MySpace and Facebook. These websites offer free text messaging as a way to advertise their sites and services offered inside. This is because freebies always attract visitors. More visitors mean high traffic for these pages. And as more people enter these sites, the greater visibility it has, and the greater chances of their services being tried. Thus, offering free text messaging is a form of advertisement also.
Due to the prevalence of texting via computers, these computers now can also act like mobile phones. There are now downloadable softwares where your contacts and messages can be stored. You can tweak on the settings to make your computer receive certain messages instead of landing on your phone.
And to make it more interesting, computers can also send messages to multiple recipients at the same time. This is similar to the send-all function of mobile phones. And if phones can send graphic images, the computer can do better.

One of the most useful innovations in the mobile computing industry is the short messaging service technology or SMS. Popularly known as text messaging in some countries, this technology allows text data exchanges between mobile devices. And now, the technology has also expanded to allow PC-to-cell phone SMS services. Now, whether you're on a mobile device or on a regular PC, sending SMS to cell phones is easy.
While wireless telecommunications carriers apply charges to mobile-to-mobile text messaging, SMS to cell phones from your PC is free. As a value-added service, wireless carriers allow subscribers or even the general internet public to send text messages to local numbers from their websites. Some of these facilities are only one-way PC-to-cell phone service. Some offer full two-way PC-to-PC text messaging.
SMS to cell phones can be done online. Many websites or Instant Messaging (IM) clients offer these services for free. SMS services from IM clients work just like PC-to-PC chats. You can save contact details from your account online or key in a phone number to text when you want to send an SMS. IM clients usually allow the sender and the recipient to exchange messages.

These facilities allows to profiles, upload photos, post and maintain blogs - all directly from cell phones. Members can send text messages, or emails may be received as text messages. You can access your account either from your phone or from a regular PC.
Majority of those who text messages via computers are those from business companies who send various messages at a single time for various promotions or propaganda purposes. Computers for them are more convenient because of the QWERTY keyboard. Messages are more easily typed with this keyboard, than using a cellular phone with the number pad.
These computers are installed with certain software that acts like an actual mobile phone. It has a big memory that can store millions of customers or clients' numbers, making it possible to send multiple messages to this big number of people at a single time. These messages will be received in real time.
In the same way, the program can be configured to receive replies. So instead of the message going to your phone inbox, it will fall on the inbox of the program.

Many people have probably heard the term SMS but have no idea what it actually is or what it stands for, and even less idea as to how it actually works. SMS short for Short Messaging Service is technology that allows people to send and receive text-based messages using mobile equipment, such as cell phones.
The younger generations have taken to SMS big time and have even started to create their own unique language and symbology for sending messages. This is a measure of how much SMS technology has been absorbed into youth culture. The possibility of a completely wireless worldwide web is becoming more and more of a reality. Mobile hand held devices such as palmtops are at the top of almost everyone's list of 'must haves'. These devices are now considered by more than half the world as essential, and not a luxury. The 'want' of the masses has now turned into a 'need,' and for some very good reasons.
SMS allows us more than just a way of keeping in touch. It is an extremely cost-effective way of communicating, allowing us to watch our budget in these times of economic worry. When using SMS, typing in just over one hundred and fifty characters takes up as much space on memory as one second on a voice-to-voice call. This can represent a significant saving to anyone. So long as the cell phone is switched on, SMS messages are usually received almost instantly. They are similar to e-mails in that they can be reviewed on the screen and can be stored in your own unique filing system for as long as you need them. SMS also offers the facility to send out messages to large groups of people with a single click of the 'send' button.
SMS has the facility for allowing different messaging formats for the user. It can be used for sending voice mail, for fax messages, as well as for e-mails. SMS allows users to collect all their messages in these formats from their mobile device.
Europeans have really adopted the SMS culture and send more than a billion messages each and every month. Incredibly, this same level of SMS culture does not yet apply to the United States of America. SMS service is way under-utilized in the USA, although it is growing. The main explanation of this unusual phenomenon is that the USA does not at the present time use the digital wireless interface standard used in Europe - GSM. Global Systems for Mobile Communication or GSM is the platform for all SMS communication.
Essentially GSM is a system based on digital technology, which is the reason that SMS features work so well. Most countries do use the GSM digital standard, but the USA is one of the few countries that prefer to use CDMA and TDMA rather than GSM. There are GSM networks throughout the USA but the general preference appears to be for the other two systems, which is somewhat odd since both these other systems reduce the capabilities of SMS. USA is starting to change to GSM but the change is relatively slow.
If you are wondering how such a tiny cell phone can hold so much information, most mobile devices can have SIM or Subscribe Identification Module cards fitted. These are essentially plastic cards with chips on which information is stored. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of SMS or have never used it, you really should give it a try. It is amazingly practical, extremely reliable and an affordable way to stay in touch with family, friends and colleagues.
Text messaging is one of the greatest communication technologies that ever happened. It is being enjoyed by the generations of today for easy communication via their cellular phones. It basically works by typing or inputting a message and sending it to the recipient's number.
Text messages are sent instantly in real time. It is a cheap way of relaying short messages rather than giving the person a call. The popularity of text messaging fast grew globally because it is proven effective. Because of this, people continued to seek new ways in communicating via text messages.
So now, other than the handy phones we use for text messaging, you can also do so with your personal computer. The advantage of this is using the keyboard to more easily key in your messages. To avail of free text messaging, you go online in the internet and visit websites offering these free services.

Texting was only originally intended for the hearing-impaired who wouldn't be able to take calls in mobile phones. It quickly caught on other people. They found it a quicker and easier way to send messages, rather than calling, especially for short messages.
Telecommunication networks used to offer free text messaging services. But people tend to abuse freebies, and it soon created high traffic in their satellites. It pushed these companies to charge fees for texting to limit text usage of their subscribers.
Charging fees controlled the public's use of text messaging, and inevitably freed the satellites from unwanted traffic. However, it also brought down sales to a certain extent. By charging text messages for free again, the telecommunication companies won back their customers.
Free text messaging is not at all free. Telecommunication companies get profits from sponsors and advertisements. It also entices clients to try out their other services out of gratitude for the freebies offered. Most free text messaging services are availed online rather than in mobile phones. And these websites have many banners around it. These are advertisers that pay the telecommunication company for every click on their banner.
The dotcoms have now provided another free way to send text messages through computers (PC). There are three types of online facilities that can send free SMS to a mobile phone.
First are the websites of wireless telecommunication carriers. They offer free text messaging as added service to their subscribers. It encourages people to login, subscribe and browse the website's contents. It also encourages people to try their other services like paying bills online or viewing bill statements through their website.
Second are instant messaging (IM) clients. Most IM clients allow two-way PC-cell phone-PC text messaging. The dotcoms don't charge you any but your wireless carriers may apply charges on the cell phone-to-PC route (See how your wireless carriers are earning from texting?).These IM clients normally offer SMS services as adjunct to their basic instant messaging platform. These dotcoms normally partner with wireless carriers to bring you their services on the go. Their services become part of your carrier's WAP offerings allowing them both to profit from your continued patronage.
Third are the online communities and all other dotcoms offering the luxury of sending free SMS from their websites. At first it would seem they are not making money from offering you free text messaging service. But actually it is advertising. People flock where the freebies are. And more people mean higher traffic, and more chances to get sales from their websites. It is an effective marketing tool.
People nowadays just caught the hype of texting. And that's why these free services offered online are such a hit.
Freebies are always awesome. But remember not to be abusive for these companies to continue giving us the best services they can offer us. And although free, it does not give us the excuse to send any kind of text we want, especially if they are harmful and abusive contents. There is always an etiquette to live by.

Mobile phones, PDAs and a variety of other mobile devices are now able to access the internet around the world. The internet is no longer the preserve of people with computers - it is now a mobile phenomenon.
Though they fall short of traditional computers in what they are able to display, they are powerful tools, and will continue to evolve.
Just a quick look at the differences in screen sizes will tell you a lot.
Mobile devices do not display websites in the same way that computers do.
Yes, there are a few devices out there that have the capability of displaying all of the content of a web page, but these devices are very expensive and usually require the presence of a WiFi hotspot.
Displaying abbreviated versions of website pages will continue though until such time as these become more widely used.
When using a PDA to upload a website, its obvious that the display is geared to show text which is easy and fast to download.
So, given these facts, don't you think that its a good idea to cater to these types of internet users? Of course you do!
When you are designing a website, you need to take into account how people will view the site. Simply by choosing a quality web design program, it becomes possible to create a mobile version of your website, with literally several clicks of the mouse.
Once this new website is created, it can be embedded with a few lines of code that will automatically make this the default site for people using mobile devices.
Instead of dealing with creating a new domain name or setting up mirror versions of the site that are to be used by mobile devices, your website will be able to automatically redirect a visitor to a page that is ideally suited for them.
This may not seem like a big deal, and its true that mobile device users are a relatively small portion of internet users, but when it comes to making your business profitable, it pays (quite literally) to reach the widest possible audience.
Transitioning to this technology can be a real pain, but if you invest in the best web design programs, you'll find the transition as easy as clicking the mouse a couple times.

Ten years ago, cell phones were just beginning to appear. Today, it seems every person on the street has one. However, not all cell phones are equal. How do you find the best one? Ask yourself what qualities are important to you. First, the physical aspects. Do you prefer flat cell phones or those with a flip? Are slim cell phones more attractive, or does size really matter? Cell phones seem to come in all shapes and sizes, and color can also be a determining factor. Have you seen the changeable covers? Who knew cell phones would become such a fashion statement? A critical factor to consider is ring tones. Some cell phones come with standard rings that could drive anyone crazy. Others have downloadable tones, letting you show off your taste and personality. If you've ever been on a crowded train where six cell phones started ringing at once, you know how important it is to have the pleasant ring tone. No one wants to draw negative attention. Cell phones have all sorts of new features, and they keep improving. Some cell phones allow you to take pictures. Other cell phones give you internet access on the road. And like most technology, there are new improvements made on a weekly basis. Remember that you'll be paying for these features; make sure you'll use them before you spend the money. Manufacturers of cell phones have done extensive research to find out what is important to you, the buyer. The carrier, though, is also important to consider. What good are cell phones, after all, if you can't get service? Find out who in your area has the widest service and the best rate plan. Most of us have become spoiled by our cell phones. It's hard to remember the days when no one could reach you until you got home from class or from work. Cell phones have opened up our lines of communication considerably. (Sometimes it's questionable whether that's a good thing….) The fact is, it looks like cell phones are here to stay. Is it possible anymore to escape? Of course! The best thing about cell phones is that you can use them when you need them, but sometimes the best cell phones are the ones that are turned off.
