Latest Cell Phones
If trends reflected in the latest cell phones are any indication, we have barely seen the tip of the iceberg. What's crystal clear though is that cell phones are not just for talking anymore. [MORE...]
The latest smartphones are taking cell phones beyond the next level into a wireless world limited only by our imagination. With PC-like operating systems onboard, these on-the-go smart gadgets are leading the charge towards the outer frontiers of mobile applications.
Consider rugged cell phones if you've dropped your phone one too many times. Or if you are an outdoors person or have a very active lifestyle, these "all-terrain" phones combine durability with good looks.
Tablet phones perhaps provide a perfect compromise between the small screen and keyboard of a cell phone and the relative bulk of a full tablet PC. Not to be outdone by iPhones or iPads, the early tablet phones offer a variety of styles, ranging from single-unit combos to dual-unit companions.
Music phones have not only produced a mobile infotainment trend for consumers, but also created a new battleground for electronic gadget manufacturers. The Sony Ericsson Walkman was followed by the Motorola ROKR with iTunes. And now it's becoming a crowded field.
There are tremendous opportunities to really expand the benefits of cell phones for seniors. According to the AARP, people age 50 and older are as likely as younger people to have cell phones while most people age 65 and older buy them for security in an emergency.
The latest Nokia phones combine photography, video and communications as Nokia celebrates more than two billion mobile subscribers. Connecting people, information and services, by making mobile communications more affordable and accessible, still remains at the core of cell phones by Nokia.
The latest Samsung phones not only provide a good indication of what's new but also what's next in cell phones - large storage capacity, music-friendly capabilities and more "bells and whistles" for mobile infotainment.
The Apple iPhone integrates iPod and cell phone, creating an all-in-one device that's already a winner. Add its all-touch and no keypad interface, and you some new mobile trends in the making. The fashionable LG Prada helps make that point; so does the Samsung Instinct.
With an advanced touch interface that completely eliminates the conventional keypad, the LG KE850 Prada cell phone combines LG technology with Prada's luxury-class design. Strikingly similar to the Apple iPhone, the new LG Prada began hitting the shelves well before the iPhone.
Espresso is not just about coffee anymore. Now it's also about cell phones, following the release of a Sanyo cell phone said to be the first Espresso-colored handset in the U.S.
The Sanyo SCP-3100 camera phone features a high-quality speakerphone, SMS text messaging and a large external LCD. It supports Sprint PCS Vision for downloading images, ringtones, Music Tones, games and other applications, and also supports Sprint PCS Ready Link for walkie-talkie communication.
The SCP-3100 comes in three other trendy colors - Pure Silver, Blue Energy or Always Pink - in addition to Espresso.
The Sony Cybershot camera brand has gone mobile. Now you can take your best shot with some of the latest cell phones by Sony Ericsson.
Case in point - the K790 handset. The cell phone has a 3.2 mega-pixel camera with autofocus and flash, and a unique technology for selecting the best take from a series of photos - all from one snapshot.
With music, video, FM radio and Bluetooth, K790 looks like a sure shot.
The cell phone continues to spawn new mobile commerce and advertising programs. One of the latest programs is dubbed qtags. It lets mobile phone users request and receive promotional offers, including coupons via text messaging....
Packed with digital cameras, MP3 players, radio-TV programming, and video recorders, the latest cell phones are delivering the telecom industry's long-sought convergence of voice, video and data communications.
To be sure, this is uncharted territory and there are challenges. Issues range from radiation safety to concerns over driving while phoning.
And as more PC and Internet functions show up on the latest cell phones, so do the attendant issues such as data security, privacy and age-appropriate content. But the latest cell phones just keep on ringing and making headlines.
NOP World Technology's mKids Study reveals that cell phone ownership has topped 16 million among teens and tweens nationwide, with almost half (44%) of 10-18 year olds in the U.S. owning a cell phone. [more]...
