  9. Source Nokia has come up with a cellphone that can charge its own battery by accumulating energy from the owner's motion. The self-charging handset was predicted to work with heavier components, such as the radio transmitter circuit and battery. The set is supported on a strong frame. The frame has a rail mechanism which allows the set to shift up and down or side to side. As per the information, each rail contains strips of piezoelectric crystals at its end to provide a way to generate a current when compressed by the frame such that motion or by the movement of the phone. Then, a capacitor is there to store the charge to run the handset.

  11. 50% of Gujarat's population owns a mobile phone: Trai The telecom industry is flourishing in the country, and Gujarat’s contribution to its growth is stunning — the state is the seventh in India to cross the three crore mobile phone subscription mark. According to a report released recently by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), Gujarat crossed the milestone in January this year. Given that the state has a population of about six crore, it means thatone in every two persons in Gujarat flashes a mobile phone. Trai’s figures indicate that Gujarat has more than 50% mobile density; the numbers reflect a high demand from the state’s rural areas . Trai report suggests that around 85% of the three crore subscribers prefer pre-paid connections to post-paid. In May 1997, when the incoming charge for a call was Rs8 per minute, there were only 4,100 mobile connections in Gujarat. It took 10 years for the state to touch the one crore mark. However, the number of subscribers increased remarkably thereafter. It took only another 17 months for that figure to double. And by the end of January 2010, that is, in only about 15 months, Gujarat recorded a total of 3,01,41,470 mobile phone connections, the Trai report says. The total mobile phone or wireless connections in the country, by the end of January 2010, was at 54.50 crore. Gujarat contributes 5.2% to the national mobile phone subscriptions.“Gujarat has already crossed the 50% penetration mark,” said Shivan Bharagava, the COO of Bharti Airtel, Gujarat Circle. “And although there is 100% penetration in urban areas, the bulk of opportunities that liein the rural segment are yet to be tapped.”
  12. Source Google is testing a new television programming search service in conjunction with Dish Network, according to The Wall Street Journal. The service, which appears to be very much in a limited testing phase, runs on a special set-top box and apparently searches content from both the Dish programming guide, as well as web video services like YouTube (YouTube). Without any details about the specific implementation, it’s unclear how similar this venture is to the new upcoming TiVo Premiere service that was announced last week. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of The Wall Street Journal’s report dealt less with the service itself and more with the technology that powers the set-top box. Apparently, portions of Google’s Android OS power the Google-enabled device. While Android (Android) has been spotted on other devices like tablets and netbooks (or, so-called smartbooks), a move to the embedded device space could be huge. As consumer electronics rapidly shift toward connectivity (hey, it might have taken us 15 years, but now everything is moving at a rapid pace), there are huge opportunities for embedded systems developers. As it stands, most embedded devices use either a custom-built kernel or a modified version of BusyBox, but Google (Google) could theoretically offer a framework that would be both free and value-rich for device makers, while also offering opportunities that impact Google’s core business. Of course, this isn’t Google’s first foray into television. Back in 2008, Google AdWords launched Google TV Ads as a platform for companies to buy airtime in various markets. That project hasn’t been as successful as other Google ventures, but perhaps a more direct way of tying search to television would have better results.

  15. Source MUMBAI: In a bid to ensure that essential services like telecommunication do not break down during natural calamities, the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) has brought out a draft policy on mobile towers and has asked cellular service providers to adhere to certain norms while constructing new towers. Saying that the towers would have to be earthquake resistant, DoT has specified that the design, fabrication and use of material should conform to the standards set by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Since there was large-scale damage when the cyclone struck Orissa and even during the Bhuj earthquake, the draft telecom policy paper states that there is an urgent need to ensure that telecommunication services are not disrupted in such disasters. “The towers are erected in residential areas and on lease-rented buildings that are spread all over towns and cities,’’ a senior DoT official told TOI, on the condition of anonymity. “The buildings over which the towers are erected are not analysed for the associated risk of earthquake and appropriate retrofit measures are not taken,’’ the official added, alleging that “in some cases the towers are constructed even without taking requisite permission from the concerned authority.’’ Addressing health issues, the draft tower policy has asked telcos to follow international standards to cut down on radiation. In a bid to check radiation from mobile towers, telcos have been asked to provide certification of antenna emission levels. “Cellular service providers shall ensure compliance of the International Commission for Non-ionizing Radiation Protection and other environmental standards,’’ notes the draft tower policy. It has also outlined ways to encourage alternate sources of energy for telecom towers to reduce pollution.
  16. Download entertainment, utility, finance, social networking and games apps now! Source Vodafone Essar has unveiled its very own application store in India in what is thought to be a muted launch. The service, according to Vodafone, was already operational since last month. However, the company chose to officially reveal it to the world only now - after they crossed the figure of just over 10,000 downloads. The Vodafone app store comes in a few weeks after arch rival Airtel launched its own app store. Reliance too is in the contention with its app store which is expected in the not too distant future. The Vodafone app store currently has a little over 800 applications on offer across various genres. The most popular ones are entertainment, utility, finance, social networking and games. Like most other app stores, it has a search function too so you don't need to browse all the applications to find the ONE app you were looking for. Over 25 percent of the apps are free. The prices of the paid apps range from Rs. 5 to Rs. 30. This puts even the paid apps under the affordability barrier. Vodafone is also in the look out for more VAS partners so that the app store can be enhanced with even more apps in the future. If you happen to be a Vodafone subscriber, all you need to do is to send a message APP to 111 (toll free) and also access the store through the portal Vodafone live by clicking a link on the home page.
  17. Nokia Applies for Self Charging Phone Patent These devices will not need a power socket to charge In what seems to be a first of its kind, Nokia has applied for a patent for a technology that would allow future cellphones to charge themselves up - without the need for a power socket. Ever since mobile phones shed off their image as a basic communications device to become multimedia powerhouses, battery life has been a cause of concern. As the processing power and features grow exponentially, the rate of growth of battery technology to charge these power hungry devices is almost at a standstill. It then becomes imperative that we look for alternate sources to power our phones rather than just depending on a power adapter. This is what Nokia has done. The concept of this new device involves the use of heavy components inside the phone being supported on a sturdy frame. The frame will be able to move along two sets of rails, giving it the ability travel up and down (or side by side). These rails have strips of piezoelectric crystals at each end. These will generate electricity to charge the device whenever they are compressed using a capacitor that will briefly store the generated electricity and use that to charge the battery. This also means that the natural movement of the phones during travel and the times when they are inside our pockets, these piezoelectric crystals could be at work - slowly charging our phones. This is just at the conceptual stage and there is no word if this design and concept will ever make it to a mainstream production Nokia.
  18. Bsnl Launches 3g Services

    BSNL Launches 3G Services in Mangalore As a part of its expansion in Karnataka Of late, BSNL has been on a continuous 3G launch spree as some of you might have noticed. The services were launched in Kerala, Bangalore and some cities of Andhra Pradesh not long ago. This was after the launch in a few cities in North India and in the metro cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai. It's the turn of coastal town Mangalore to go 3G now with BSNL announcing the commencement of 3G services in the city. The expansion of services to Mangalore is a part of BSNL's expansion plan to equip 32 towns across Karnataka with 3G. All district headquarters in the state are slated to be 3G enabled in the next two months. BSNL is also increasing the number of towers under its aegis to support 3G services. The number of towers in Karnataka will jump from 3,000 to 6,000 very soon. Anyway, if you happen to be a lucky resident of Mangalore and use a BSNL connection, you might want to check the 3G service now!
  19. Blood Required

  20. Source Telecom operators, including the PSUs BSNL and MTNL, have opposed the TRAI move to charge a price for allocating new numbers, saying an additional levy is totally unwarranted. Sectoral regulator TRAI’s main reason behind suggesting a price on allocating new numbers is that the numbers are not being efficiently utilised and it feels a price can make the operators not to dole out numbers to lure more customers. It has also sought opinion on the methods of pricing. The existing National Numbering Plan was formulated for a projected forecast 450 million mobile and 300 million basic subscribers. Due to the tremendous growth in subscriber numbers, the plan has fallen way short of designed capacity in case of mobile numbering resources as the current subscriber base is more than 550 million. State run BSNL has told TRAI that numbering resources is the most basic need for accessing any telecom service. The service providers are already paying licence fee for operating telecom services, of which these numbering resources form an integral part. “No pricing for numbering resources should be implemented”, BSNL said. Country’s largest private mobile player and number 1 operator Bharti Airtel said operators are already paying 30 per cent of their gross revenues towards levies and duties despite major fall in tariffs and ARPU (average revenue per user). So, proposing another additional levy in terms of pricing would be completely unwarranted for the industry. “New block of numbers are alloted only after demonstrating 60 and 80 per cent utilisation stringently for mobile and fixed line respectively”, said Bharti. Anil Ambani group firm Reliance Communications, which is the second biggest sectoral player, has echoed similar views. RComm said telcos are already operating at wafer—thin margins which would be further eroded if numbers are made chargeable. They would be forced to pass on the burden to customers. “Therefore, charging of numbers is not preferable and will harm the long-term growth of the telecom sector in our country. If service providers acquire ownership rights in numbers, then any reclamation when needed would be very difficult. The sale of numbers may lead to hoarding without having served the objective of efficient utilisation of numbering resources,” RComm said. Another PSU, MTNL said though numbering is a scarce resource and should be utilised efficiently by the operators, it is not advisable to keep any pricing policy for allotment of number blocks. Considering that Indian customers are enjoying very cheap telecom services unlike subscribers of other countries, wherein Indian operators are facing stiff competition and striving for profit, the pricing of numbering blocks will certainly put extra burden. The result will be enhancement in tariff for the existing services, said MTNL.
