Tip & How-To about Cell Phones
With the development of technology, several of media portable players emerged and have enriched our daily life greatly. We enjoy our favorite movies and music with all kinds of portable players such as iPod, iPhone, Zune, PSP, mobile phone and so on. Now, several of the most popular players are:
iPad - is an unprecedented device. It doesn't shoot rainbows or make puppies, but this roughly 8x10-inch tablet computer melds your laptop, smartphone, gaming console, and iPod into a single, affordable, unfortunately named thing. If you've ever used an iPhone or iPod Touch, the iPad will feel immediately familiar. Out of the box, you get many of the iPhone's capabilities, including Apple-designed applications (apps) for Web browsing, e-mail, maps, photos, music, video, YouTube, and more. More apps can be installed using the built-in App Store software or by connecting the iPad to iTunes via your computer using the included cable. If you already own apps purchased for an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can transfer these apps to the iPad, as well.
iPhone 3GS - In many ways, the 3GS is a mirror image of the iPhone 3G; externally there's no difference. It's inside where all the changes have happened, with Apple issuing a beefed-up CPU, new internal compass, larger capacities for storage, and improved optics for its camera. More to the point, the release of the 3GS coincides with the launch of iPhone OS 3.0, a major jump from previous versions of the system software featuring highly sought after features like cut, copy, and paste, stereo Bluetooth, MMS, tethering, video recording, landscape keyboard options for more applications, and an iPhone version of Spotlight. It's important to remember that real-world use will be a better judge of the iPhone 3GS' endurance. The large color display, frequently switching between different applications, and heavy 3G or GPS use will drain the battery faster than just making a call. As it's difficult to develop an accurate benchmark for testing battery life while multitasking, your experience will vary widely depending on how you use your iPhone 3GS. There are quite a few things you can do to maximize battery life, but we recommend using Wi-Fi over 3G whenever possible, limiting GPS use, and dimming your display's brightness. The 3Gs is the first iPhone to show the percentage of battery charge on the Home screen.
Nokia N900 - Nokia has equipped the N900 with decent hardware: it has a 600Mhz processor that integrates a PowerVR SGX 530 graphics processor. Finally, the N900 runs Maemo, a Linux-based operating system that is backed by major players like Intel. At the moment, the best way to enjoy the N900 as an entertainment device is to copy media files to it. There's ample room (up to 32GB internally+16GB via micro-SD) and that's how you'll get the best image quality for the videos. Music is pretty easy to acquire, but videos formatted to the optimum size and bitrate is another story. As a voice device, the Nokia N900 does very well, and as a communication tool, it is very good too. With Maemo, Nokia's smartphone future seems a lot brighter than it is with Symbian OS. In additional, the Web experience is the most complete: the vast majority of sites work perfectly. All the functionalities are there, including Flash and Ajax support, but in some situations (Flash heavy sites).
And other players, etc. I am not list one by one.
