2 Billion may Suffer from Mobile Cancer by 2020: Australian Health Research Institute Reports

New Delhi, Delhi, India, -- (Business Wire India) The studies and survey conducted by Australian Health Research Institute indicates that due to billions of times more in volume electromagnetic radiation emitted by billions of mobile phones, internet, intranet and wireless communication data transmission will make almost 1/3 rd of world population (about 2 billions) patient of ear, eye and brain cancer beside other major body disorders like heart ailments, impotency, migraine, epilepsy etc. According to the reports the tissues of children are tender and are likely to be more effected by use of any wireless gadget and devices and they should not be encouraged to use mobile phone. The fatal and volumetric effects of Electromagnetic Radiation emitted mainly by mobile phones, Mobile phone antenna, tower, Mast, Transmission Tower, Microwave oven, wireless devices, system and equipment. These dangerous effects have been certified and confirmed repeatedly by many leading medical and scientific research institutions of the world including Ministries of health of various governments, W.H.O. and now have been admitted and confirmed by Govt. of India in their recent press releases.

The attached image shows and proves about the serious ill effects of E.M. radiation released by Radiation Nuclear and Safety Authority of FINLAND as to how E.M. radiation emitted by mobile phones damages the various body cells and causes incurable and fatal diseases.

Symptoms and Health Risks by use of mobile phone:

-- As and when, any mobile user starts feeling, sleep disturbance, restlessness, depression, nervousness, headache, reduction of power in concentration, hot spot in the brain and partial overheating of brain, eyes and ears, high blood pressure, productivity problems (impotency, exhaustion, physical weakness, genotype disturbances, changes in blood formations and change of readings glasses number, it is a clear warning that person with such symptoms is suffering one or the other dangerous diseases due to excessive use of mobile.

Precautions, the Mobile users must take

Never keep Mobile phone near your heart (left pocket), ever allow children below 16 years and pregnant women to use Mobile phones, never cook food in a microwave oven, never give infants and children pre heated milk or food from micro wave oven, never use premises for living and working where transmission mast / tower are installed.(effective range is 66meters in radius),switch off Mobile phones when not in use, never keep mobile near to your bed side when sleeping, prefer the usage of land line if available, Use Mobile phones only in Emergency and for very short duration, never use other wireless gadgets for very long durations.

-- It is always advisable that mobile phone should not be treated and used like a land line nor it is an alternate to landline and it should be used as an emergency alternate to land line. Availability and use of mobile in urgency may click a deal and bring fortune to few and in case of accidental emergency, police and ambulance services can be contacted, medical aid may be provided and few lives may be saved. But excessive use of mobile can finish once life particularly when the one use the same while driving, while walking and talking on road and excessive use of mobile without any protective device is more harmful than smoking and chewing of tobacco.

Protective and safety device

The leading mobile phone handset manufacturers of the world, including Nokia, Motorola, Siemens, Ericsson, Samsung etc and operators are blaming each others rather than owning the responsibility to work and produce one or the other safety devices or incorporate the available devices in their handset. A leading German researcher innovated, designed, developed and started marketing a wonder chip known as Green 8 for mobile, computer and buildings. This worldwide tried, tested and proven chip is in the world market since 1996. Millions of consumers worldwide have used, are using and have been benefited. The field reports of Green8 magic chip, which is neither a shield, nor an absorber, nor an protector but it is only a neutralizer as claimed by the innovator. This chip works and functions on the tried principle of harmonizing, transforming and neutralizing the negative polarity of electromagnetic radiation into positive polarity of radiation which leaves no biological effects on human organs, vegetables and planet. For any and all further information on radiation, world news and protective devices, readers may contact by sending e-mail. to green8@mail.com or green8@usa.com.

The Ultimate N82 Battery

For those N82 users who insist that the given Nokia battery provides poor performance, this battery may be what you're looking for...


It's a 2000mAh BP-6MT Lithium-ion Battery (as opposed to Nokia's 1050mAh BP-6MT), which basically means it's roughly twice as durable as the Nokia one. Notice that it's also physically twice the size of the Nokia one - meaning that if you feel that your Nokia N82 is already very thick, you probably shouldn't get this, or people will start to wonder what you have hidden in your pockets...

It's going for US$9.99 from Hong Kong, and to be honest I'm not exactly sure whether this battery is reliable or not; although I'm tempted to purchase this since it's going for a rather cheap price, and to do a complete review on the battery unit.

Oh, and if you do intend to get it, a word of warning - if you're doing any firmware updates, you MUST place your original Nokia battery in your N82 before conducting them. This is because the upgrade checks for the battery, and if it's not the official Nokia one, the update will terminate, screwing up your phone. Don't say I didn't warn you...

World's first mobile phone with built in projector

This whole idea has been talked about alot and it has actually been made into a reality by a Chinese company named CKING. It was showcased just recently at the IMIE2008 which took place in China. The device is in a candy bar form factor and features an iPhone look alike UI. It is pretty thick, probably due to the built in projector. It also features powerful stereo speakers. Enjoy the pics.

Three Nokia handsets leaked – two N-Series, and the 5800 Tube

Nokia's 5800 Tube was seen some months ago, now, it makes another appearance, along with the N85, and the N79. The N79 looks to come in two colors – titanium or white, and bears a resemblance to Nokia's N82, except it doesn't sport the fingernail-style keys of the N82. The screen looks to be about standard for an N-Series device – 2.4”.

Next, the N85, which has the dual-slide form-factor of the N95/6. It comes with a five megapixel camera, much like the N95/6, but with the addition of an Xenon flash. It also dumps the Nokia N96'S stand, in favor of a lens cover. It should be available in your choice of black or white.


The 5800 Tube, a mostly all-touchscreen device, with a few buttons on the face of the device. It looks not to have a finger-driven UI, but rather stylus input, given the picture below. It will be the first Nokia to use their S60 Touch UI. The camera is a 3.2MP affair, with a dual LED flash. No word yet on when any of these three devices will be announced.

Apple Introduces the New iPhone 3G

Twice as Fast at Half the Price

SAN FRANCISCO—June 9, 2008—Apple® today introduced the new iPhone™ 3G, combining all the revolutionary features of iPhone with 3G networking that is twice as fast* as the first generation iPhone, built-in GPS for expanded location based mobile services, and iPhone 2.0 software which includes support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync and runs the hundreds of third party applications already built with the recently released iPhone SDK. In the US the new iPhone 3G is priced at a stunning $199 for the 8GB model, and just $299 for the 16GB model.** iPhone 3G will be available in more than 70 countries later this year, beginning with customer availability in 22 countries—Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the US—on July 11.

“Just one year after launching the iPhone, we’re launching the new iPhone 3G that is twice as fast at half the price,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “ iPhone 3G supports Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync right out of the box, runs the incredible third party apps created with the iPhone SDK, and will be available in more than 70 countries around the world this year.”

iPhone 3G gives users ever faster access to the Internet and email over their cellular network with quad-band GSM and tri-band HSDPA for voice and data connectivity around the world. iPhone 3G supports Wi-Fi, 3G and EDGE networks and automatically switches between them to ensure the fastest possible download speeds. The new iPhone 3G also makes it easier to multi-task with simultaneous voice and data communications, so with iPhone 3G you can browse the web, get map directions, or check your email while you are on a call.

iPhone 3G includes the new iPhone 2.0 software with both the iPhone SDK and key enterprise features such as support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync to provide over-the-air push email, contact and calendar syncing as well as remote wipe and Cisco IPsec VPN for encrypted access to corporate networks. The iPhone SDK allows developers to create amazing applications that leverage the iPhone’s groundbreaking Multi-Touch™ user interface, animation technology, accelerometer and GPS technology on the world’s most advanced mobile platform.

iPhone 3G includes the new App Store, providing iPhone users with native applications in a variety of categories including games, business, news, sports, health, reference and travel. The App Store on iPhone works over cellular networks and Wi-Fi, which means it is accessible from just about anywhere, so you can purchase and download applications wirelessly and start using them instantly. Some applications are even free and the App Store notifies you when application updates are available. The App Store will be available in 62 countries at launch.

Additional features available with the iPhone 2.0 software include the ability to do real-time mapping and track your progress with GPS technology, mass move and delete multiple email messages, search for contacts, access a new scientific calculator, turn on parental control restrictions for specified content, save images directly from a web page or email them to your iPhone and easily transfer them back to your photo library on your Mac® or PC. iPhone 3G delivers an amazing 10 hours of talk time on 2G networks and 5 hours using 3G, with up to 5 to 6 hours of web browsing, up to 7 hours for video playback and up to 24 hours for audio playback.

iPhone 3G takes advantage of MobileMe™, a new Internet service that pushes email, contacts, and calendars from an online “cloud” to native applications on iPhone, iPod® touch, Macs and PCs. With MobileMe email, messages are pushed instantly to iPhone, removing the need to manually check email and wait for downloads, and push keeps contacts and calendars continuously up-to-date so changes made on one device are automatically updated on other devices. With iPhone, you can even snap a photo and post it directly to a MobileMe Gallery to share with friends and family.

iPhone 3G will be available in the US on July 11 for a suggested retail price of $199 (US) for the 8GB model and $299 (US) for the 16GB model in both Apple and AT&T’s retail stores and requires a new two year contract with AT&T for qualifying customers. iPhone 2.0 software will be available on July 11 as a free software update via iTunes® 7.7 or later for all iPhone customers. For further information about iPhone 3G pricing and availability in the US and internationally, visit www.apple.com/iphone.

*Based on 3G and EDGE testing. Actual speeds vary by site conditions.
**Based on iPhone 3G (8GB) and first generation iPhone (8GB) purchases. Requires new two year AT&T rate plan, sold separately.

Apple ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s with the Apple II and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with the Macintosh. Today, Apple continues to lead the industry in innovation with its award-winning computers, OS X operating system and iLife and professional applications. Apple is also spearheading the digital media revolution with its iPod portable music and video players and iTunes online store, and has entered the mobile phone market with its revolutionary iPhone.

Review of GSM/UMTS-smartphone Nokia 6210 Navigator


Mobile-review have posted their review of the Nokia 6210 Navigator. Here is the final impression.

Impressions
Call quality was never an issue with the 6210 Navigator, as it easily lived up to our expectations of a Nokia-branded phone. Ring tones sounded quite loud thanks to the handset’s dual speakers. Surprisingly, we found the 6210’s vibro alert to be very shrill.

The 6210 Navigator is set to land this August with the price tag of 300 Euro, which includes a pre-pair license for pedestrian and in-car navigation (accounts for 50 Euros or so). Obviously, the maker gets it at a lower rate.

How does the 6210 fare as a portable Navigator? Quite well – it has no crucial failings, but it’s no different from the rest of S60-powered devices either (bar the on-screen compass, which is a quite useless trinket that will keep you entertained for 5-10 minutes at best). Will Nokia be able to sell it in droves and bring it into the mainstream? For this to happen a lot of things have to click in and align the right fashion, plus it will do only for some specific markets, where navigation-savvy handsets are all the rage, and the 6210 will look appropriate in terms of price-quality (again we stumble upon the all-in-one device dilemma). However it won’t work out on most market (including CIS countries), since there is still only a very thin layer of people who do realize what navigation is all about; the truth is, this market isn’t mature enough. Meanwhile those few savvy users will rather prefer top-of-the-line NSeries solutions or the upcoming ESeries devices. At the end of the day there is no way-out for the 6210 Navigator – while this phone aims at the mainstream, there is just no market for it to flourish on. The interesting thing, though, is that it’s exactly the same story as what we witnessed with the Nokia 6110 Navigator, basically the same hurdles killed the sales of Nokia’s first navigation-centric solution. It seems as if the manufacturer is waiting for the market to explode and come to love smartphones of this breed, so that they’ll happen to have an affordable mass-market device on offer at the right time. As far as my opinion goes, I see no compelling argument for buying the Nokia 6210 Navigator right now. It doesn’t differ from older offerings in terms of navigations, for they can be upgraded with the latest version of Nokia maps too, and sure loses to the maker’s latest and greatest FP2-equipped handsets.

Review of GSM/UMTS-handset Sony Ericsson C702


Mobile-review have posted their review of the Sony Ericsson C702 Cyber-shot. Here is their final impression.

Impressions
Our C702 unit was loud enough to break our preconceptions about muffled sound of ruggedized handsets. The phone’s vibra alert turned out to be average strength-wise, though. The reception quality of the C702 was quite good – we got strong signal levels in most places and didn’t notice any significant differences from other contemporary solutions.

The C702 is set to arrive this June at a price of 320 Euro. It has no standout features or treats barring the casing design; as for the camera, it’s actually nothing new, since the Sony Ericsson K770 packed in pretty much the same unit. The C702 is a fairly good choice if you are in the market for a handset that is a fraction more protected from dust and abuse than most other mass-market solutions. Also going for this phone is its lens cover and flashlight mode for the camera. But, the bottom line is this: the C702 has no bells and whistles as far as its camera department is concerned, it even can’t stand up to last year’s flagship, the Sony Ericsson K790/K800. It’s a well-rounded and versatile device aimed at a small-numbered audience bent on ruggedized phones. The C702 is robust enough to survive a few tumbles and resist water and mud, but of course it doesn’t have the level of protection to spend a minute in water and take no damage. On the other hand, Sony Ericsson isn’t charging the maximum for it, on the contrary, the C702 is relatively affordable for this device type, especially for want of real competition. While it boasts a nearly perfect build quality, its plastic quality and materials let it down. Some will come across the problem of worn-out keys, some won’t; the good news is that the manufacturer has promised to sort this out, but considering the shape of the C702’s buttons and their size, we have some doubts that Sony Ericsson will be able to improve their coating significantly. Also among the C702’s failings is its display that gets washed out in the sun.

On balance, the C702 has a likable design, mediocre specs and its price tag is 25 percent heftier than that of its non-ruggedized counterpart. All this indicates that Sony Ericsson is into niche-aimed solutions and puts a lot of effort into diving the market into narrow segments. As of today it has no rival out and about, so all fans of the late Siemens M-series can well thrown the C702 onto their short-lists, given its similar degree of protection, prowess in basic functions and some extra contemporary feats under the hood (camera, music, GPS).

Sony Ericsson Paris – the story of one affordable device


Mobile-review have posted a very interesting article about the Sony Ericsson Paris. Here are the final paragraphs from the article.

The Paris looks more like Sony Ericsson’s attempt to settle down in the segment of touchscreen devices before Motorola or Nokia make it there. In my opinion, this is a niche-aimed solution that is not like the G900 (which has all what it takes to turn into a widely adopted device). The Sony Ericsson Paris will be sort of a late call and too few will really crave for its QWERTY keyboard. It’s pretty difficult to find a scenario where its sales numbers will be stellar. UIQ-based devices will see an all-round new platform only towards the end of Q2 2009, when the maker will switch to new models with upgraded and enhanced specs, and as for today, Sony Ericsson is trying to get the maximum out of its old solutions and platforms. And the fact is, they have already approached the upper limit there, when it's no longer possible to take their ideas in the top segment any further in view of insufficient computing power and performance.

More images of the Paris will be leaked very soon, but this time around, there will be more angles and better quality (which is crucial) – we will update this article with them as soon as possible. Stay tuned for more!

Opera Mini Web Browser Is A Great Alternative

If you haven't already tried out Opera Mini you need to give it a shot. It's a great alternative to the built in Web application. Pages load fast and the layout is perfect. I've seen a few website rendered wrong with the Web application, and Opera Mini can handle it perfectly.

Today they released Opera Mini 4.1 which doubles the speed of previous versions. I hadn't used Opera Mini in a really long time because it wasn't fast enough and I was always more than happy with the built in Web application. But after giving this latest release I try I am extremely impressed and can honestly say Opera Mini will probably be used more than Web. The speed is amazing and there are just so many more features to this application. One of my favorites being the ability to scroll down pages fast and smoothly instead of click by click like the Web application.

Here is a list of some of the important features.

Search Within Text
Auto-Completion of URLS based on your history and bookmarks
Offline Viewing
Speed Dial Bookmarks
Power Scrolling
Custom search shortcuts
Page Overview
Auto Jump To Text
Full Screen Viewing Even In Landscape

There is a ton of more features so you gotta try out the application yourself to see the rest. Opera Mini is also amazing because it re-renders the pages through it's own servers and minimizes the page sizes. Those who have expensive data plans will save lots of money.

A few tips.
Keep the settings on portrait. Rotating the N82 will also rotate the screen and it works perfectly. If you get sick of the application asking you which access point to use you can fix this. Go into your Application Manager and select Opera Mini. Click options and Access Points. Set your Network Access to Always Aloud.

Keep in mind this is a Java application which means it can be used on just about any phone. I'm usually not fond of java applications because they tend to run slow and not as smooth as native .sis applications, but Opera Mini is an exception.

Samsung Glyde review roundup


The Samsung Glyde was one of the most hyped phones on an American carrier in recent memory leading up to its launch, and there's one small problem with that: it's hard to live up to the fanfare, no matter how good (or bad) the phone might be. A common early complaint coming out of the gate seems to be the lack of support for Verizon's MediaFLO-based VCAST TV service, a service that the Glyde's main competition, the Voyager, supports. The UI's also getting panned for being a little more confusing that it needs to be; compounding matters is the fact that Phone Scoop describes it as a "push UI" on account of a fiddly touchscreen. For what it's worth, it seems that the keyboard is at least quite good -- so if you can put up with the negatives, the Glyde might still have a place in your pocket. Otherwise, the Voyager's still looking awfully good, isn't it?
