Doro mobile phone for elderly

While all of us at IntoMobile use smartphones and love ranting about them, sometimes we have to also add a post or two about low-end feature phones. One such device which is extremely easy to use and lacks sooo many features is HandlePlus 324gsm.

The work of Swedish manufacturer Doro is primarily designed for elderly who actually don’t need that many options. The device lacks any display but comes with a total of 7 large buttons, 5 of them programmable, a talk and an end-call button. Combined with a vibration alert, neck lanyard, built-in speakerphone and the low price of only Ģ85.10 (plus taxes) - makes the device a perfect choice for the senior citizens. One thing that bother us is a ridiculously bad battery life of just 3 hours of talk time. Weird, don’t you think?

HTC's Touch Cruise with GPS gets official

HTC Touch Cruise (HTC Polaris) in action!
<a href=";rel" target="_blank" class="new_win">;rel</a>

HTC Touch Cruise VS Iphone The Microsoft VS Apple war will never end  :laugh:
<a href=";rel" target="_blank" class="new_win">;rel</a>

HTC just went live with their Touch Cruise. "Touch" as in that TouchFLO interface, "Cruise" as in GPS-enabled. The third addition to HTC's Touch lineup packs HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth, a 3 megapixel camera, microSD expansion, and a 2.8-inch touch-screen lying on top of a Windows Mobile 6 foundation. Oh, and it's loaded with TomTom Navigator 6 software to make the most of that GPS receiver. Yup, everything mostly what we thought it would be. Available this month from European retailers or SIM-free direct from HTC.

Update: We're still digging but HTC was a bit unkind by not providing specific country launch information or supported radio bands. At the moment, this looks like Europe-only.

Google has just presented a new open mobile platform.
Theyīre even giving out money to the clever people that can come up with useful applications for the platform.

Android Demo

Application update;

Review: Shazam iD, TrackID is no longer just a Sony Ericsson thing

f you have a Sony Ericsson device released in the past 2 years or so then you have a most awesome application on your device called TrackID. If you never used it before, here is what you’re missing out on: Once you open the TrackID application you can hold your phone up to a speaker playing a song and within a few seconds you have the name of the track, artist and album you’re currently listening to. This works with the radio as well so you don’t even have to take off your headphones in that situation.

I have long been an advocate that Nokia get off their ass and replicate this application for their S60 powered devices, but my complaints fell on deaf ears. That is until now.

Where did I find it?

I immediately went off on a quest to find this application,
but my efforts were thwarted once I reached
Shazam’s website.
Not only does this company fail to provide a URL for a SIS file, you have to be a UK resident and send a premium SMS to get a download URL. Who do I know in the UK? The folks over at All About Symbian! I sent an email to both Rafe and Steve asking if they could help me out with this review by giving me the download URL and they did without hesitation, thanks guys.

The link is
and you have to visit it in your mobile web browser. This should make typing it out a lot less painful:

Let me convince you to download this!

Here is Shazam’s icon. I find it horrible, which is why I’m pointing it out, in hope that they change it in future versions:

The splash screen is the first image on the top of this post, here is what you see after that disappears:

When you click “Tag Now” the application automatically begins to record a short snippet of the audio currently playing. This takes around 5 seconds at best, I didn’t time it so don’t quote me on that:

After it is finished Shazam will ask you to connect to the internet, in this case I selected my provider, Kolumbus:

What is this young, single, mobile phone addict listening to? Rick Astley! The song name scrolls, artist name is right under that and the last line indicates the time when you clicked on “Tag Me.” One more thing, full album art! I’ll come back to what that 1/14 indicates:

When clicking on “Share it,” a text message entry dialog pops up allowing you to send an SMS to a friend who might like, laugh at, or hate this song:

RealTone doesn’t work for me, it just pulls up Shazam’s site, which is useless. Now what did that 1/14 indicate? MyMusic is a list of all the songs you identified. No clue as to the limit of items within that list. Yes I like Modern Talking, no I’m not gay:

Moving one tab over to “TagChart” you can see the most popular songs people are trying to identify:

That is all. A very simple application, it does 4 things: ID the song currently playing, list the songs you tagged, list the songs people are tagging the most and letting you share the name of that track with your friends.

Message to Nokia:
Clone this
Add the ability to “Download now via the Nokia Music Store”
Add the ability for me to identify songs currently playing on the radio
Let me see what songs my friends are tagging
Let me see what songs my country and other countries are tagging
Do it before Sony Ericsson does because they already have plans to implement everything I just said.

Update: A developer asked me if Shazam and TrackID poll the same database, they do, it is called Gracenote. I’ve also decided to throw in one more screenshot of some songs I had playing over my stereo:

The fully-featured, full-fat enhanced version of Shazam's world leading music recognition technology now available as a downloadable smart application for Symbian operating system handsets

(see list below for details of handsets Shazam iD will work on).

Full-resolution sensitivity - cuts through background noise to sample the tune.
Twice as fast - fingerprint is taken 'on device'.
Can be used even if there's no network connectivity - the sample is stored and can be sent later.
View cover art.
Check and manage your tag list direct from your handset.
Share your tags with friends.
See the latest weekly Tag Charts on your mobile.
Download it and try it for FREE today!
Text SMART to 80805
You get a text with a link to the download. Click on the link.
Shazam checks that your phone is compatible.
The application gets downloaded to the appropriate folder in your phone!
Open it and start experiencing the next level of music recognition.

(UK only service.)

Trial version is free to use for a limited term. Terms apply.
Tips for successful downloading.

InetTools- Free TrackID for Java J2ME Mobile Phones: Record Song using Mic to Identify/Recognise Track, Artist & Music Album

InetTools has released a free TrackID application for Java J2ME capable and MIDP 2.0 compatible mobile devices such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Blackberry and Palm.

TrackID is a free service that allows you to capture and record any music, song or sound clip through the mobile phone’s microphone, compare it to online digital signatures on Gracenote, and recognise/identify the media’s track, artist, and album info. I have previously mentioned TrackID for Nokia S60 and TrackID for Windows Mobile devices. Now you can enjoy the same on any Java J2ME mobile device.

InetTools TrackID allows you to record a few seconds of a song using the mobile phone’s microphone and get the track, artist and album information within a few seconds.

Download TrackID for Java J2ME mobile phones here;

Eventually a long-awaited Nokia N82 smartphone got official.
The vendor positions the smartphone as a multimedia device optimized for photo capture, navigation and Internet browsing.
The smartphone really has powerful features.
To top it all the developer has implemented a new 3D multimedia menu in Nokia N82.
There is the support of automatic screen orientation (switching between portrait and landscape).
Naturally it supports Ovi services, including Nokia Music Store, N-Gage and Nokia Maps.
The sales of Nokia N82
have already started on main world markets.

The price makes up some 700-800$.

WTF? Itīs already out?

Time for a NEWS update;

Check out this N92 from China.
When first seeing the name, I thought this would be some Nokia ripoff but this isn't the case.
The phone has a design which combines black with chrome and features multicolor keypad lights.

Here are the specs.
- 3 inch 16 million color QVGA touchscreen
- FM radio
- microSD support
- 2 cameras
- built in solar panel on the back
- measures 115x54x17 mm
- weighs 100 grams

It has a wannabe Windows Mobile UI and has the badge all over the phone.

Sony Ericsson P5i concept

The Sefanatics has posted an interesting concept of Sony Ericsson P5i smartphone. The device is rumored to be on its way, however the manufacturer hasn’t made any official confirmation or provided official images. Taking into account (unconfirmed) info on an upcoming user’s interface UIQ (UIQ 4?) with figer control, the concept looks like to be true. It is equipped with a big display and has no keyboard. Most likely the mysterious Sony Ericsson P5i will be of this kind.
