HTC Has Just Acquired Dashwire For ‘Cloud Safety’

Taiwanese manufacturer HTC has just purchased Dashwire, a Seattle-based company. If you haven’t heard of Dashwire before, they are famous for creating a platform that allows users to back up their important data on their phones to a cloud-based system.

Dashwire is going to become a subsidiary of HTC and the company popular for their smartphones, plans on integrating Dashwire’s technology into its own HTCSense.com cloud services.

LG Goes Wireless, Announces Global Remote Call Service

LG has just announced a global release of its new Remote Call services, that allow smartphone users to enjoy remote maintenance and software upgrades. The service was first launched in Korea, but soon, the rest of the world can enjoy it too.

The Remote Call services essentially let LG diagnose software issues in a mobile device without forcing a customer to visit the support center (thank god!). This lets LG technicians connect to the phone directly via the Internet and troubleshoot the phone.

Be Efficient With iOS 5’s Wireless Update Feature

Apple has recently seeded the beta version of its newest operating system iOS 5 to developers. iOS 5 is currently not available to normal users as it is in a testing phase.

For the first time Apple has introduced the feature of updating the OS over a wireless network without hooking the device up to a PC for downloading.

For this, the user will need to first download the new operating system to the device utilizing 3G or WIFI connectivity. Updating the software by this method would not download the full operating system which requires the download of about 700 MB chunk of data.

Pantech Releasing Water Proof Smartphone

No one ever thought that a water and dust proof cell phone would be available. And nobody definitely thought about that kind of Smartphone. But Pantech has made it possible.

Pantech is releasing it’s latest smartphone, the Pantech MIRACH IS11PT. This smartphone is controlled by 1GHz second-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8655 SoC CPU. It runs on the Google Android Gingerbread 2.3 OS. It has a 3.7-inch WVGA screen with a resolution of 480 x 800.

Gmail’s Multi-Call Feature

It’s always more fun talking to two buddies at the same time than talking to either individually. Google has added the same feature into its Gmail service to make the conversations more enjoyable.

It’s more fun to read email and place a call from the same interface rather than switching back from mail to make a call. With preliminary voice and video calls support, Gmail brought forth the facility of calling land line and mobile phones across USA and Canada last year. Google has now enhanced this facility by adding multi-call support, allowing users to switch between callers using resume and hold features, much akin to call waiting.

Leak: Nokia Sea Ray With WP7 (Video)

Nokia’s first Windows Phone 7 device is probably music to many Symbian users who have long carried the burden of trying to use their phone in the first month of owning it. Symbian, of course, is Nokia’s operating system, that they’ve been using for the past decade + years, and it’s a royal headache.

Simple things like turning off the WiFi, takes many clicks here and taps there and it’s probably the farthest thing from being intuitive.

Protect Your iPhone 4 In Aerospace Grade Titanium

We don’t cover iPhone cases very often, and that’s because they’re usually not that cool. But I think this case is definitely the exception to the rule. The iPhone 4 case is called the fireTI and is made from 6AL-4V aerospace grade titanium.

Although I don’t think it will help very much in shock-proofing your mobile phone, say if it happens to fall 4-5 feet. I think the main reason why anyone would wanna spend $225 on an iPhone case is because it looks damn cool, and everytime you have to take a call, you’d be using a friggen titanium case.

LG Slide Concept Phone With Rollout Tablet Screen

Jason Betty designed the LG Slide Phone as a concept design that basically combines your small cell phone with a larger sized netbook computer. Although this has done before, I have to admit that this concept looks a lot cooler than what we have seen in the past.

The LG Slide phone is not only sleek and lightweight, but it’s so thin it can fit in an ordinary wallet. If this concept ever made it to production, it would allow users to seamlessly use and send documents that have already been stored to their cellphone, but with the ability to roll out a paper thin keyboard.

Microsoft Working On Secure Messaging & UI For WP7

It looks like Microsoft is up to no good in that they are working on a ‘top secret’ Windows Phone project, or at least that’s what the job listing says on its website.

It seems as if the project would be a version-one design with initial planning set to undergo in a month. The interface will be targeted to those user-friendly consumers and Windows may spend more time on making messaging more secure.
