Verizon Motorola Droid

Several devices came in market from the BlackBerry, Nokia, HTC, Motorola and Sony Ericsson to hit the market with a hope of being an iPhone killer but none of them have gotten succeed. Now, the debate has come to Motorola Droid. Is Motorola Droid will beat iPhone 3GS?

Let’s look some features of Motorola Droid before making any decision:

Based on Android 2.0 Duh

QWERTY-slider and thinner than iPhone 3GS

TI OMAP3430 processor

Half soft-touch plastic

Capacitive display

QWERTY keyboard

These are the some basic key features of Motorola Droid that makes it very attractive. It uses TI OMAP3430 processor so it is the fastest Android device for ever. It is very similar to OQO 02 model computer.

Motorola Droid has the best screen on an Android handset with an amazing capacitive display. It has soft-touch QWERTY keyboard. It is simply the most impressive device by its colour and design. The phone comes with cradle/charger also. You can enjoy with “multimedia station” by this phone also. It is the being known as the best phone of Motorola just like Motorola CLIQ.

Verizon Motorola Droid is being launched on 30th October, 2009. Motorola Droid is known as the best mobile phone than iPhone 3GS because of the hardware, keyboards, screen, operating system and applications.

Now, Verizon Motorola Droid release date has been declared so, we are waiting it in the market. It will beat iPhone 3GS or not, will be decide by the customers. However, I am sure about the mobile phone because of its new applications, TI OMAP3430 processor and looks.

Motorola is introducing Motorola CLIQ also on 2nd November, 2009 with T-Mobile. So, it is very near to Verizon Motorola Droid. Both phones of Motorola have already gotten good popularity. Motorola CLIQ is top in the market because of MOTOBLUR technology. Now, there is more option by Motorola to beat the market of Apple iPhone.

So, main focus with Nokia N900 is – Processing power, large internal storage, fast wireless broadband, digital camera, innovative design, integrated GPS and accessories. Nokia N900 is a very different handset from its previous – in design, functionalities, features and OS. Many people have opinions that Nokia will kill iPhone market by its Linux. Yes, it is only confusion, because iPhone can’t be beaten by only OS or widescreen but there is many more features with iPhone that make it popular just like – Apple App store, a cashing design, full touch-screen and user interaction.

Although, Nokia N900 may not beat iPhone market but surly, it will grab a huge market share of Apple iPhone because of its design, features and functionalities.

Nowadays, LG BL40 Chocolate new mobile phone of LG is in the news. LG introduces BL40 Chocolate mobile phone with 5MP camera and touch-screen features. The company introduces new handset of Chocolate series. It is a good looking and cashing design mobile.

LG has already released official images of the handset. We should know that LG is already the most famous in mobile market with its chocolate series. We can say it is BlackLabel series of this handset because BL40 is coming in black colour.

There is great rumor about this mobile phone also. Still, features of the handsets has not revealed officially. The mobile is set to launch in late August, 2009. We can conclude some specification of the handset by rumor.

LG BL40 Chocolate

We are expecting that the LG BL40 chocolate would be equipped with:

S-class screen user-interface

Full Touchscreen with 21:9 aspect ratios

5MP camera equipped with LED flash and auto-focus

Wi-Fi feature

GPS

3G

Bluetooth

16:9 or 4:3 screens

Image Gallery

Music, movies and Games

These are the maximum features of LG BL40 chocolate which have been collected through rumor. It is being said that it would be better in battery life and music player quality.

There is not great debate about the mobile but yes, the mobile is now much awaited once. Its design is gregarious which is never seen before. Its functionality it is better than its previous series.

On the screen, its keys are fixed like Apple iPhone. It is a mobile which will feel your finger’s sensation and moves as fast as you can. It is not me, who rumoring the mobile features but it is video of the handset which has described it.

I am concluding my thought on LG BL40 chocolate because it could be perfect only after having introduced. From my point of view it would lead mobile market because of its design and touch-screen functionality.

Nokia 1202 is really a simple mobile phone and it is not like an iPhone or other touch-screen mobile phones. It has not greatest features like iPhone and other higher technologies mobiles.

This is the phone which satisfies the users need. It is the phone of simple people. After the Nokia 1110 it is most selling phone in India. Basically, the phone sales have risen in the villages of India.

The data shows that in Indian villages each and every home has a mobile phone after the solving of network problem. According to the TRAI in Indian villages about 80% people have a mobile phone. In these data recently, Nokia 1202 has gotten greater popularity and it has about 90% customer.

The phone has cheapest price about Rs 1350 which is lower than other mobile. It is simple in look and offers a light feature. It has same design of Nokia 1110 and it comes in three colours – Midnight black, Violet nlue and Silver grey.

The phone has Standard battery with Li-Ion 720 mAh but users review shows that its backup is not good. Many people said that they wanted its backup like Nokia 1110 but it is not like that.

It has great market to launch its product in market now after Google mobile. Now, Google is one of the best partners in the mobile marketing.

These are the main key features of Touch HD. It has one major disadvantage that is TV out port. Nowadays, Nokia mobile manufacturing company launching their mobile phones with TV so, HTC should also launch this feature in their mobile.

From the designing point of view it has great look and beautiful touching sensation. It has been seriously designed as business phone.

Nowadays, the phone is known better than HTC touch diamond. 3.5mm headphone jack is known as customer oriented phone. It is in the competition of iPhone 3G. In the widows based mobile HTC Touch HD is on the top as superb phone.

HTC Touch HD has great widgets also like – Google Maps, Weather, Google Search etc. which make it greater phone than others. YouTube is inbuilt in the phone.

In my previous post I have already announced that Nokia mobiles from N-series are coming to defeat iPhone and touch-screen phones. Here, again I am going to announce with the review of Nokia N73 that it is the phone which has not touch-screen feature but I am sure that it is the well established and most selling phone in UK after the Nokia N-95.

People who have Nokia N-73 know about its features and functionality. Surely, it is beyond from touch-screen phones because its features have always attracted customers in spite of it is not touch-screen.

Nokia N73 Key features

It has Symbian S60 3rd edition OS

It has 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics along with it has a second VGA camera also for video calls

It has Infrared, Bluetooth, USB Mass Storage and UMTS support also

It has large display along with great web browser

These were the some basic key features of Nokia N73. But its real attractiveness comes through its design. It has large display and camera cover with zeiss optics.

It has been said in many reviews that it is the very successful mobile phone like Nokia N-63, N95 and N70. It is the most selling mobile also in the N-series. I will respond it like a sensitive mobile because of its menu which drills down very actively when you going to handle it.

I will show you some images of Nokia N73 below after that you will satisfy yourself about the phone:

Recently, Nokia is in highlight in news section due to N-series. Nokia has recently launched N96 as a TV mobile which comment and reviews came positively by the reviewers. Still the mobile has been launched for UK and US people. Nokia N96 came in the market with 16GB memory in market along with built-in 3D sound and a 2.8in screen. It is known as entertainment mobile due to digital TV tuner.

Simon Ainslie who is the managing director at Nokia UK said, “The Nokia N96 is going to provide a gateway to quality viewing on the move. The enormous success of iPlayer has demonstrated the desire audiences have for accessing programmes at a time and a place that suits them,” the statement was published in news.bbc.co.uk.

In the series of touch-screen but not in N-series Nokia has launched 5800 Xpressmusic mobile for the users of touchscreen handsets but it was not succeeded like other touchscreen – Blackberry Storm or iPhone however 5800 Xpressmusic was in the competition of iPhone and Google mobile.

In this process Nokia tried to promote N96 in the market as a general phone but higher class family. Of course, Nokia N96 is running very successfully in UK ans US market. In the UK it is in second position in the selling after iPhone. But in the US it has great position also however it is not in 2nd position like UK.

Lastly, Nokia decided to cover some mobile phone market globally that is why it acquire Symbian OS and along with it announced to launch Nokia N97 till next year of April. No doubt, N97 is the most reviewed phone after iPhone till now.

For next year Nokia N97 is in the competition along with Blackberry storm to iPhone because Blackberry going to open an Applications Stores and Nokia will launch N97 on Symbian OS. All these contradiction will lead Nokia as touch-screen with N-series in which N97 will be on top till next year in telecom industry.

Opera is a browser like Safari, S60 etc. it allow users to access their system on the operation. Mini Opera which is known as Opera mobile are much capable browser for any mobile phones. As I mentioned that Opera is a desktop browser also for windows and Apple machine and it has created a Opera Mini to run on the iPhone. But it is very bad news that Apple won’t allow to offer the application for iPhone users on its Apple Store.

Mobile browsing experience shows that Opera Mini or Opera Mobile has greater experience than mobile Internet Explorer, most WAP browsers and even the S60 browser. It has been tasted on many mobile phones also.

Apple iPhone’s Safari browser has also great experience but Opera developing a new platform as Opera Mini to run on the mobile phone. Opera CEO Jon Stephenson von Tetzchner says, “Opera’s engineers have developed a version of Opera Mini that can run on an Apple iPhone, but Apple won’t let the company release it because it competes with Apple’s own Safari browser.”

Opera Mini and Opera Mobile offer a better mobile browsing experience rather than others however apple won’t allow the application on the iPhone. I don’t know what is the reason behind it but the something is more clear that iPhone want to be an independent phone.

I think it is also not true because there are many application of iPhone has been released with the collaboration of Google. Even YouTube also has given much contribution on the iPhone.

Recently, the news shows its collaboration with Google on the occasion of Google Earth with iPhone release.

After all it is clear that iPhone want to be a stronger brand however the good things are involving with it but all will be decided by the approval of Apple.

Google announced to launch recently Google Earth on iPhone. It was 2005 when Google had launched Google Earth for Desktop and after the great success over 400 million unique download of Google Earth on Desktop now it has launched Earth for iPhone.

With the Google Earth you are able find local businesses and view geo-located photos. Now, this application you can download in free on your iPhone from iTunes App Store. With the Google Earth now world is in your palm, in your hand and you can fire up your desktop.

About the Google Earth googlemobile.blogspot.com writes,

“…You have access to the same great local search that you get with Google Maps, so you can search for places, businesses, and landmarks. With Google Earth you get to the full detail page for businesses, so you can get reviews, photos, user content, business hours, and other useful information. We also added a “search near me” feature, so with one touch you can find businesses near your location, without having to navigate there first or type in the name of the city…”

With the Earth iPhone is very convenient. You can swipe your finger across the screen and you will be able to find all over world on your iPhone. It is also for iPod. You can use zoom in and zoom out on your iPhone large screen to see your desired location by Google earth.

If you have planned to go outside from your country it will learn you about the destination of world.

Google launched the application for iPhone and iPod only but soon it will be for all touchscreen mobile soon. Like – Google mobile, Nokia touchscreen or Motorola touchscreen etc.
