iPhone Blackout Issue during Calls

January 29th, 2009

My iPhone kept on blacking out during calls & couldn’t figure out why. Finally went to the Genius Bar @ an Apple store. By the way, go early mid-day. Waited less than 5 minutes with out an appointment.. Normally have to wait 30 minutes plus with an appointment.

Anyway, I found out the sensor was being disrupted by my case. The video above explains Nhat Pham’s issue & how to fix a similar problem.

MiFi – Mobile 3G WiFi Hotspot

January 20th, 2009

This is a Hotspot to go device which will allow upto 5 users. Novatel will come out with both HSDPA & EV-DO options. This device will retail @$199 with some additional subsidies I am sure from carriers.

Really slick device that will have an app store along with it expected to come out first half of 2009.

Powermat: Wireless Charging Device for your Gadgets

January 13th, 2009

I have talked about the Powermat before in WERKShops. This will be the next rage for techie Warriors to charge your devices. It uses a process called magnetic induction where it only needs to be in contact with the device & not physically plugging in each device. There a a charging mat & a receiver attached to the device. There will be 2 mats. One to facilitate 3 devices & another upto 6 devices.

Getting in won’t be cheap. The entry level Powermat will be around $100 and each reciever will be around $30. Yikes. Might not be an early adopter on this one considering how many devices I have.

Unfortunately it will not be out till 3rd Qtr of this year. For you Road Warriors out there, I would like to see a Powermat for your car.  One that sticks to your dash & has a cigarett lighter.

Palm Pre: Touch Screen QWERTY Phone

January 12th, 2009

Here is the Palm Pre Device I mention earlier today on the Road Warrior Show. It really is a slick device. It brings the best of both worlds of touch screen gestures with a physical QWERTY keyboard. It looks like it comes with a charging pad similar to the Powermat which I will publish in a follow up post.

Above is the demo at the 2009 CES show. It will be rolling out from Sprint. As always, Sprint came last in coming into the game with a really slick touchscreen device. While Sprint has a chance to really get all the nuances I really like, I have adopted the iPhone platform already (still using Blacbkerry to a large degree & occasional Windows Mobile). It even more inportant I am already on 2 different carriers. It will take Sprint giving me the device to switch and then some. I have too much invested in my other devices and apps.

With that being said, what I really like is the additional QWERTY slide out tactile keyboard, customization of the screen, & curve shaped to form to your face.

Here are some quick specs for you.

-3.1-inch touchscreen
-Slide-out QWERTY keypad
-CDMA2000 1x EV-DO Rev. A
-3-megapixel camera
-8 GB memory
-Replaceable battery
-4.8 ounces

iPhone Remote Desktop Software

January 5th, 2009 is a great Remote Desktop Software for the iPhone for Salespeople, Entrepeneurs or folks away from their PC’s. This app is for a Windows machine & can be connected via your iPhone by way of your Safari Browser. Now you can connnect to your PC anytime & anywhere… or at least if you have bars or WiFi.

Touchtype: Landscape Keyboard Workaround for iPhone

December 31st, 2008

Great iPhone app I just added this week to type emails in Landscape mode. I didn’t get why Apple still hasn’t fix this issue yet, but I am glad Michael Schneider develop this Touchtype app for iPhone users like me who have been use to typing on a tactile keyboard and give us a little more room to thumb our way throuh the touchscreen QWWERTY Keyboard.

Using Vlingo Voice Command for iPhone & Blackberry

December 21st, 2008

While this video shows the Vlingo application for iPhone, it is available fo Blackberry & various other devices. Currently, it is only able to update Facebook and Titter for Social Networks via voice command. I expect Vlingo to expand this to additional Social Networks but in the meantime its still a pretty nice app and will make it a little safer for folks updating on the road because we never text update while we drive ;). It will even do voice cammands for Google searches, map directions and much more. Best part, its FREE !

Google Maps for mobile featuring Street View: Flat Tire

December 15th, 2008

Here is actual street views for Google Maps along with some great new features. Its currently available for Windows Mobile Phones & Nokia S60. Rest assured compatability for Smartphones is coming.

You must check out the video to get the full appreciation of what it can do.
