The HTC HD7 Is A Spectacular Multimedia Phone

When the new Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating system was unveiled, a selection of smartphones was released to showcase the new software. Amongst these was the HTC HD7. This great looking smartphone boasts a wealth of multimedia features and impressive hardware making it a force to be reckoned with in an increasingly competitive smartphone market.

Some of the main advantages of the HD7 include:

- A fantastic touchscreen
- Super fast internet browsing
- Loads of multimedia features
- A great digital camera
- A cutting-edge operating system

The handset measures 122x 68x 11.2 millimetres whilst weighing in at a relatively lightweight 162 g. The front of the handset is dominated by the huge 4.3 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen which boasts a pixel setup of 480x 800, within which up to 16M individual colours are displayed. Accelerometer and proximity sensors are provided as standard, whilst there is also a kickstand on the back of the phone which can be used to stand the phone in a landscape position on a flat surface so users can keep their hands free whilst watching videos or slideshows on the screen.

A generous 8 GB of internal storage capacity is provided as standard, eliminating the need for expandable storage such as a microSD slot. This level of storage means that users can easily store a digital music collection or a large number of video files etc. within the phone. Vibration and ringing are used to alert users to incoming calls and messages, whilst there is also the added bonus of MP3 and WAV ringtone support meaning users can assign the song of their choice as the ringtone.

In order to provide the HTC HD7 with the optimum levels of connectivity to the appropriate cellular networks, class 32 versions of both GPRS and EDGE are provided. The handset utilises 3G coverage for its initial means of internet connectivity whereby an HSDPA connection provides download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps. Wi-Fi connectivity is also included meaning users can enjoy an enhanced browsing experience whenever they have the appropriate access to local wireless networks.

The HTC HD7 is a highly competent cameraphone, boasting a 5 mega pixel unit which comes with auto-focus and dual-LED flash. The high operating pixel resolution of 2592x 1944 means that the resulting images are of fantastic quality and detail, whilst the previously mentioned features simplify the task of taking great snapshots. Additionally, the phone can be used to shoot high definition video footage in 720p quality. An additional feature of the camera is geo-tagging which utilises GPS to keep track of where the camera has been used.

The Microsoft Windows Phone 7 operating System works alongside the highly regarded 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor for lightening fast speeds of the user interface and to provide the necessary power to run demanding applications and multi tasking. A number of different multimedia and social networking features are included along with productivity tools such as the Microsoft Office document viewer.

The HTC HD7 is a Smartphone which looks great and boasts a spec list to match. Whatever you are looking for from a Smartphone, the HTC HC 7 is a great choice as it is easy to use, yet powerful in every aspect. I would recommend the HTC HD7 to anyone who is looking for a comprehensively functional smartphone which can handle just about any task on a daily basis. With some great deals available, you may be surprised hoe affordable this great device actually is.

A Portal Engine For Small and Medium Sized Agencies and Webmasters

Small and medium sized web agencies are in the need to shift from a do it all concept to a more specialized concept, whereby they focus on the design of the website and moreover to the building and managing of the content of the website. Thereby comes the need to use ready made online website builders and content management systems that have a great deal of flexibility and robustness to deal with most of the technical issues of building a website. That kind of partnership will lead to a lower cost of ownership of the website for the agencies and the customer and will avoid constant make-overs of websites that are not bringing the added value required.

It will also put a clear demarcation on the responsibilities towards building and managing websites – the technology provider being in charge of developing and maintaining a state-of-the-art tool and the agencies being fully responsible for design and content management. Ultimately the customers can take over the day to day content management of the site, turning to the agencies only for redesign and/or the implementation of new features and applications.

In order for those partnerships to work, there is a need for an online web content management system that can be sort of white labeled and that web agencies and to a certain extend webmasters can use for deploying simple and complex websites and portals for their customers. That white labeled service is a sort of window to the outside world and customers for the web agencies and for the webmasters. Through that service they can not only offer web design facilities and web content management services, but also all kinds of value added services related to web building and web management. SEO and related services are coming to mind here.

When agencies and webmasters are looking for partnerships of the kind described above, the following requirements should be taken in to consideration:
a platform that is comprehensive enough to suite simple customer demands but that can also deal with complex news, sports and community portals
a platform that is easy to use and that can be maintained by non-technical people
a platform that has the widest possible set of features, including the latest multimedia features and the community features that are common now to most websites.
And a platform that has enough MANAGEMENT tools so that you can manage all the customers from a single integrated platform and that you can follow your clients on a daily basis.
And a platform that can serve as a reliable background service for the operations of the customers, without the need to invest in own servers.

All the above and the need to secure revenues upfront and in an unlimited way, so that the more the background service is used, the more revenues will come to you as long as you and your customers are using the service.

Webmasters could use the service as a sort of extension of their day to day webmaster task and leverage their capabilities to other customers and organization. There is a need to become familiarized with the software and management tools provided by the technology provider, but once done it becomes very easy for any webmaster or small agency to focus their attention to content management, content building and all the design aspect of building a nice web site.

All in all, these partnerships will dramatically enhance the customer and user experience. It will be possible to design and build a site in days, even complex sites and with all kinds of multimedia features.
The fact that end-users and customers will be able to manage the content of the website, will even enhance the customer experience. Let alone the savings that will be created both on the customer’s site and on the site of the web agencies and the webmasters.

Using a standard technology platform has many advantages:
substantial lower cost of ownership
substantial lower training cost
substantial lower maintenance cost
more people are familiar with the platform and the tool
always up to do date and with the latest features for web design and web building
continuous improvements of the platform
a community of users that can help each other through blogs, forums etc.
a large installed base

In summary, there are plenty of commercial and technology reasons to reach out for those partnerships between web agencies, webmasters and web technology providers as they benefit customers and providers in an equal way and they enlarge the market available to all players.

Downloading New Apps And Games

I must emphasize that although I am focusing mainly on music/songs here, I would also urge you to consider a downloading site that offers not only music but movies and even games. Besides making calls, the kids use mobile phones for sending text messages, playing games, listening to music and downloading ringtones. For those who play these games on the cell phone for recreation purposes or for passing time, they would benefit more from 3G system, which enables downloading of these games at anytime from almost anywhere.

Bluetooth API, downloading new applications or games has been made easy, as has the transferring of images, video clips, audio, and other files. The mobile subscribers who are not patient enough will usually be prepared to be charged when downloading mobile ringtones or games that are not advertised for free. This model would cost around $600 and should be able play Blu-Ray discs along with downloading and playing games.

These handsets are sleek in their looks and can be used for connecting more effectively with people; for accessing information from the Internet and for downloading video clips, mobile phone games, ringtones and so much more. The study also showed that users, both men and women, are facing problems in downloading the mobile phone games to their handsets; which in turn is limiting the scope of the mobile gaming market to a significant extent. If you only want to check out the casino and the free games, you can settle for the instant play version and play through your browser instead of downloading the casino to your PC.

They are also involved in downloading a minimum number of games every month; the number of games that are downloaded may vary from person to person, but the frequency of downloading of mobile phone games remains the same. It has been observed that more people are using their mobile phones for making and receiving calls and messaging rather than downloading and playing games. The users of the Nokia 6230i mobile phone can freely user it for the purpose of sending multimedia; downloading games and application; transferring data and files; and accessing to Internet without bothering of phone bills.
