Nokia Lumia 800 – First Windows Phone 7.5

I Really Love it!!!

The Nokia Lumia 800 with Windows Phone is the first Nokia smartphone to have Windows Phone 7.5. Its beautiful design is a head-turner. Simpler social networking keeps you connected to those who matter. Internet Explorer 9 gives you quicker browsing – plus the web like it is on your PC. And with a Carl Zeiss lens and 8-megapixel camera, you’ll shoot better photos and video.

Lumia 800 is a “refinement” of the N9 – Seamless design: Curved 3.7″ AMOLED ClearBlack glass touchscreen display seamlessly integrated into a smooth one-piece body…People Hub: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, Chat, SMS…Browser: Bing, Internet Explorer 9, HTML5, Wi-Fi…Camera: 8 MP Auto Focus with Carl Zeiss Optics, 2x LED Flash and HD Video

Extra features

  • Micro SIM
  • Nokia Maps
  • Bing Maps
  • Flight Mode
  • Nokia Drive
  • Nokia Music
  • 2 Microphones
  • 3D Accelerometer
  • Proximity sensor

  • WCDMA Band V (850)
  • WCDMA Band I (2100)
  • WCDMA Band II (1900)

Reviews like it has a slightly smaller screen due to the intrusion of the Windows Phone Button, only 512 MB RAM, only 16GB onboard storage, No NFC etc etc etc

But rumours that Nokia is working on Windows Phone 8 – (aka Apollo)!!!

NFC – Near Field Communication

This technology allows  for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other, usually by no more than a few centimeters. It is expected to become a widely used system for making payments by smartphone in the United States. Many smartphones currently on the market already contain embedded NFC chips that can send encrypted data a short distance (“near field”) to a reader located, for instance, next to a retail cash register. Shoppers who have their credit card information stored in their NFC smartphones can pay for purchases by waving their smartphones near or tapping them on the reader, rather than bothering with the actual credit card.

It simplifies

  • File sharing
  • Electronic business card
  • Electronic wallet
  • Mobile payment
  • Parking ticket
  • Boarding pass…etc

Pairing is easy..not like Bluetooth or Wifi

This is the logo for NFC enables devices.

iPhone 5 might come up with NFC included devices in the near future. Persistent rumours and patent applications strongly indicate an NFC enabled iPhone is on the way, though there has been no official announcement yet.

The list of NFC phones available today

  • Google Nexus S
  • Samsumg Galaxy S II
  • Nokia C7 …Etc

NFC – its an ISO 18000-3 RFID compatible, Standardisation body is ISO/IEC, Network Standard is ISO 13157 etc, Network Type is Point-to-point, Cryptography not with RFID, Range <0.2m, Frequency 13.56MHZ, Bit rate 424kbit/s, Setup time <0.1s and Power consumption <15mA

Good luck!!!

New feature like….

  • Notification Center: You get all kinds of notifications on your iOS device: new email, texts, friend requests, and more. With Notification Center, you can keep track of them all in one convenient location. Just swipe down from the top of any screen to enter Notification Center.
  • iMessage: With this you can send unlimited test message throug Wi-Fi or 3G from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to anyone with one of those devices. This apps built into the messages app, so you can send text, photos, videos, locations and contactss
  • Twitter: Integrated right into iOS 5… it even easier to tweet from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Sign in once in Settings, and suddenly you can tweet directly from Safari, Photos, Camera, YouTube, or Maps.
  • Camera: Now in iOS5, it integrates right onto the Lock Screen and you can take snaps instantly using the volume-up buttom and say “click”
  • PC free: New feature designed to be independence for all iOS devices. With iOS 5, you no longer need a computer to activate and set up your device…all you do is to connect your device wirelessly, right out of the box. Download free iOS software updates directly on your device. Do more with your apps — like editing your photos or adding new email folders — on your device, without the need for a Mac or PC. And back up and restore your device automatically using iCloud.

So what is this iCloud?? Its like a virtual Hard disk sitting on the cloud and when you sign up for iCloud, you get 5GB of free storage and it stores your content in the cloud. Your purchased music, apps, and books, as well as your photo stream, don’t count against your free storage. That leaves your mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app data. With iCloud Photo Stream, when you take a photo on one device, it automatically appears on all your other devices. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there.

To get all these features, we have to patiently wait for this comming fall…if you want to get notified when iCloud is available, click here

Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 SP1… comming soon

Next week (Week 15), Microsoft will release Office for Mac 2011 Service Pack 1 (SP1) which will provide increased stability, security, and some new features to the suite – including improved Outlook syncing support – as well as some performance enhancements. This update will enable calendar syncing between Outlook for Mac and Apple’s Sync Services. This will let you sync your Outlook calendar as well as contacts, notes and tasks with any service or device that supports Sync Services, including your iPhone and iPad.  Apple is introducing with their new version of MobileMe. MobileMe will no longer sync with MacOS Sync Services as of May 5th (or now if you have already moved your account to the new version of MobileMe calendar). As a result, Outlook 2011 SP1 calendars that sync with Sync Services on the Mac, will NOT be synced with MobileMe calendars.

The new Apple MobileMe Calendar service is an updated calendar service for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and PC. It includes:

  • The best calendar service for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
  • Calendar sharing with family and friends
  • Calendar publishing for a group or team
  • Event invitations with RSVPs
  • A new web application

The new MobileMe Calendar uses the CalDAV standard so users can view and edit their calendars using the built-in calendar applications on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac. Windows users can also view and edit their calendars with Microsoft Outlook using the MobileMe Control Panel for Windows.
