Top 5 Android Phone

I have mentioned top 5 Android Phones (Chosen by various Top Mobile Magazines).

What is more important.. these are below 10k and common man can afford it.

LG Optimus Net P690 (Rs 9,999) 

LG Optimus Net p690(Black)

Successor to the popular Optimus One, the new Optimus Net P690 has instantly been accepted as a budget friendly smartphone, mostly because the phone is a feature rich package. Optimus Net P690 has a 3.2 inch touchscreen display with 320 x 480 pixel resolution and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system.

Under the slim chassis, Optimus Net houses an 800 MHz mobile processor along with 512 MB of RAM, which is a good enough combination to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread smoothly. If third party developers get interested in this device then perhaps a custom ROM with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich might be supported on it.

LG Optimus Net p690

Supporting 3G networks, Optimus Net offers wireless connectivity via WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 as well. LG has used a 3.15 megapixel camera at its rear for decent quality photos to be uploaded and shared on social networks.

Finally, a mobile phone with a seemingly fast processor, decent camera and capacitive touchscreen should be your best bet if you plan to spend under five figures.


Next is Samsung Galaxy Y S5360

Price - (Rs 7,500)

Samsung Galaxy YS 5360

Packing a 3 inch capacitive touchscreen, the new Galaxy Y is quite popular amongst users of all ages and occupations etc. It's one of those mobile phones that come with Android 2.3 Gingerbread pre-loaded and with a flavour of TouchWiz user interface layered on it. Galaxy Y GT-S5360 mobile phone houses an 832 MHz processor to run the mobile operating system smoothly with 290 MB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy YS 5360 Both Side


The compact candy-bar form factor makes it quite enjoyable and easy to hold. The Galaxy Y also comes in a special package - Galaxy Y Color Plus, which packs four additional inter-changeable backpanel covers, just like the Samsung Corby series phones. The Galaxy Y is kind of disappointing with a mere 2 megapixel camera at the back without any secondary camera in front.

Samsung Galaxy YS 5360 White


Galaxy Y also features WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 support. Of course, it comes with FM radio that works with an RDS and location services chip with A-GPS. Not counting the camera, this handset offers the best budget friendly Gingerbread experience.

Blackberry 7280
The BlackBerry is the epitome of wireless messaging thanks to its rich messaging tools and excellent thumb keyboard. Not only that, current BlackBerry models are also mobile phones that allow you to pay for one plan that covers both voice and data. 

The 7200 series is available from a variety of US GMS providers, and we take a look at the 7280 which runs on the AT&T Wireless network. 

The 7200 series features a color display, GSM/GPRS connectivity, push email and PIM applications. A CDMA version is forthcoming. 

This phone has been stopped by Blackberry so I don't think any need to give its specification. But if you need it just write in the comment, I'll post then.

India - second-largest wireless market in the world [FM82632-68]

Mobile telephony has grown rapidly in India, especially during the last three years, with India becoming the second-largest wireless market in the world, says a World Bank study.

The number of wireless subscribers in the country has reached 250 million, making India the second-largest wireless market in the world, says the study, The Role of Mobile Phones in Sustainable Rural Poverty Reduction.

Authored by Asheeta Bhavnani, Rowena Won-Wai Chiu, Subramaniam Janakiram and Peter Silarszky, the study says India is now second only to China, with tele-density already surpassing the 25 percent mark.

Currently, China is adding about six to seven million new subscribers per month, India about eight to nine million and the U.S. about two to three million, it notes.

"The private sector is also active in India and there are a number of telecommunication companies providing mobile telephone services who have to compete for market share and meet consumer expectations," according to the study released recently.

It argues that mobile telephony has a positive impact on economic welfare by generating GDP; job generation (both in the mobile industry and the wider economy); productivity increases; and taxation revenue with mobile operators usually being a sizeable contributor.

What's your value as a cyber mafia.

Are you really a cyber crime specialist or cyber mafia? Then what is your cost there?
You may be worth of $0.25 for your official name, $2 for cell number, $150 to $500 for credit card number and $50 to $400 for bank customer ID and PIN.

You could be worth $1,000 on an average. But when you enter in corporate world and deal with corporate information, your value could run into thousands of dollars.

Gone are the days when fun and fame were the sole aim of cyber hijackers, making fast buck is the key motive of today’s cyber crackers.

These nerds can outsmart cracker king Kevin David Mitnick. The tech savvyness attached to the profession makes it proliferate in terms of value and volume, said a leading cyber expert.

A case of a Chandigarh bank executive Mr. Vasudeva can realize you the reality and power of cyber crime and their mafias.

He logged on to a social networking site, a couple of months ago. “Soon, I started receiving mails from unknown sources asking about my health and home loan details. I thought someone who knows us well was playing a prank, until a tech-savvy friend realised my computer was hijacked and turned into a BOT (a hijacked computer), a captive.

In this case, when Vasudeva logged on a virus called as malware/spyware download itself automatically in the system and started sending the files to the outsider even passwords too from where it came.

Over 10,000 computers are converted into BOTs a day and are linked into large networks of such computers, called BOTnets.

On an average, around 400 BOTs are created a day in India, says a recent study. The country has over 40 command-and-control servers having 38,465 distinct BOTs.

Among the cities, Mumbai reported a share of 33 per cent, followed by Delhi at 25 per cent, Chennai 17 per cent and Bangalore 13 per cent.

Cyber criminals sell stolen information be it credit cards, credit verification values, bank accounts on the underground economy servers. The buyer is then required to pay cash.

Unwilling to risk exposure, buyers use cashiers agents who convert the stolen information into true currency in the form of e-gold (wherein the process is instantaneous and the payments are final, ensuring no charge-backs) or through money transfers.

Looking for a job? Try Facebook Now

Internet jobs site is teaming up with Facebook to help clients run job recruiting campaigns within the online social network, the two companies said.

If you are keen to work on Social Media site Facebook, then carry on with Facebook.
As job site is tying up with Facebook to help clients run job recruiting campaigns within complete online social media network.

Beautifully created and designed ads will promote CareerBuilder and employers' sections within Facebook, with the goal of attracting potential hires who may be hard with general media like newspapers and other classified ads.

Facebook, a well known social media site was founded in Silicon Valley in 2004. However this site was for Harvard University students but spread quickly to other colleges as well as at work places too.

Targeted ads will appear on the side of Facebook and on its user’s pages among their network of friends. Clicking on these ads will take users to

According to Richard Castellini who is Vice President of CarrerBuilder, CarrerBuilder is spending a lot of money to promote on the Facebook and its network, and then they’ll have the ability to resell certain units to continue that promotion for their clients.

Facebook and CarrerBuilder refused to specify the value of this non-exclusive deal, which initially will focus on US market. CareerBuilder is owned by newspaper publishers McClatchy Co, Gannett Co Inc and Tribune Co.

Using the site (, advertisers will be better able to target their search for job candidates, Castellini said.
For example, an engineering firm may be able to target college seniors who are about to earn degrees in engineering or a hospital recruiter might find Facebook users who are nurses.

Facebook declined to comment on whether it was considering a similar deal with also.

”The only relationship we have in place with only Career Builder,” said Mike Murphy,
Vice president of media sales of Facebook. User’s privacy will be on priority.
“We are not inserting anything in anyone’s profile. We are just having them run advertising using Facebook ads to prospective employee and have them choose to participate or not,” Murphy said.

Facebook is the web’s fifth most-trafficked site with 67 million active users worldwide. In USA, 85 percent of college student attending four year colleges, have been registered.
Microsoft Corp, an investor in Facebook provides advertising networks for Facebook.

Your Credit Card - Beware, before you swipe it.

What is the worst thing to do with your credit card? Use it to withdraw cash from the ATM, says a financial expert.

In your monthly credit card statement, there is a mention of cash limit. That is the extent to which one could withdraw cash using a credit card. But the googly is the interest rates. It’s actually a very expensive proposition to withdraw cash as the interest rates on such withdrawals fall in the range of 40 per cent on an annual basis.

Usually, the credit card company mentions the interest rate as a percentage per month which typically varies from 2.7-2.85 per cent per month. And since this interest is compounded monthly, the effective annual rate of interest tends to be anywhere from 38 to 40 per cent per annum.

Essentially, credit card companies charge the same interest rates for cash withdrawals made through credit cards and for rolling over credit card balances. But if one pays the entire amount on due date, one gets around 30-45 days of interest free credit.

But what is important to know is that the rule doesn’t apply in case of cash withdrawals; the credit card company levies the interest rate the moment you withdraw the cash.

Cash withdrawals can also attract an additional withdrawal fee. This charge falls in the range of 3-3.5 per cent of the withdrawn amount. That will be added along with the interest rate to your bill. Therefore, unless you have emergency needs, do not withdraw cash on your credit card. The better option though is to go for a personal loan.

RL Prasad, general manager and head of cards and personal loans at Standard Chartered Bank, says “You should look at this option as the last resort. If it’s a planned expenditure and you don’t have sufficient liquidity then a personal loan is be a viable option.

7 tips to safer online banking

Banking has never been easier. Type in one simple web address and you have access to your bank for almost anything, from viewing the latest balance to transferring money to your friend to paying for that online purchase.

However, this convenience has its set of risks too. The stepping of financial institutions into the virtual realm has lead to a new breed of financial criminals. Criminals, who largely thrive on the innocuousness of netizens and technology loopholes.

Here are some simple tips to prevent you from falling into the trap of these cyber criminals. Remember, a simple ignorance or oversight can make a huge dent in your hard-earned savings.


Always check the URL of your bank's web site

Fraudsters can lure you to enter your user ID and password at a fake web site that resembles your bank. If you see anything other than the bank's genuine URL, it has to be fake.

Never enter your user ID or password or such sensitive information without ascertaining that you are on the right web site. Always type the Web address of your bank into the browser address space. Never click on the link in the email.


Regularly check for security updates for your OS (operating system).

Most security updates are aimed at reducing risks to your computer, these may be data-related or otherwise. Make sure that your operating system and browser have the latest security patches installed. And, always install these only from trusted web sites.

Install a personal firewall to prevent hackers from gaining unauthorized access to your computer, especially if you connect to the Internet through a cable or a DSL modem.


Change your online banking password at regular intervals.

Also, avoid easy-to-guess passwords, like first names, birthdays, kid's or spouse's name and telephone numbers. Try to have an alpha-numeric password, one that combines alphabets and numbers.

If you have several bank accounts, never use the same online banking password for all. Never select the option on browser that stores or retains user name and password. As it can easily be cracked by cyber criminals.

Also, never paste your password, always type it in. This little amount of `finger exercise' will go a long way in safety.


Banking website address should be SSL protected.

Some banks have enhanced security features in Internet banking. For example, if the money that you want to transfer online to another account exceeds a particular sum, you may have to enter a specific password. Several banks require password to validate high-value transactions.

Make sure that the banking website address starts with https (SSL protected) which ensures encryption protected communications.


Always log out when you exit the online banking portal.

Most banks have a 'last logged in' panel on their web sites. If your bank has it, check the panel whenever you log in. If you notice irregularities (like you are logging in after two days, but the panel says you logged in that morning!), report the matter immediately to your bank and change your password right away.

Always log out when you exit the online banking portal. Close the browser to ensure that your secure session is terminated. Never exit simply by closing the browser.


Avoid accessing your bank online at cyber cafes.

Don't leave the PC unattended after keying in information while transacting on the web site. Avoid accessing your bank online at cyber cafes or on a share or public computer.

Also, avoid locations that offer online connections through wireless networks (Wi-Fi), where privacy and security are minimal.


Avoid filling out forms in email messages that seem spam.

Avoid filling out forms in email messages that ask for personal financial information, like account or credit card numbers. Never, in response to any email, provide your online banking user ID, passwords, credit and debit card numbers.

No bank's representative will ever ask for your user ID/ credit or debit card number/ password in any form. If they do, change the bank!

Mobile content and services going to be boom

According to research firm Informa, SMS, multimedia messaging and instant messaging on mobile phones will generate revenues worth $93 billion globally by 2011

LONDON: The market for content and services on mobile phones is expected to grow to $150 billion by 2011, as access to the web while on the move becomes easier and faster, research from Informa Telecoms & Media showed.

The research firm said that applications such as messaging led by traditional SMS messaging would still account for a lion's share of this market, generating over half of this revenue in 2011.

Informa predicted messaging services comprising SMS, multimedia messaging and instant messaging on mobile phones will generate revenues worth $93 billion globally by 2011 from $60 billion last year and an expected $67.4 billion in 2007.

Entertainment services comprising games, music, TV, adult content and gambling would grow to $38 billion by 2011 from around $18.8 billion in 2006, it said.

"Mobile music will be a major contributor to the revenues achieved in the mobile entertainment market in the next five years, although its overall share of the market will fall from 40 per cent in 2006 to 36 per cent in 2011 as new forms of entertainment such as mobile TV and video services begin to gain consumer interest," Informa said in its report.

Not all of the explosion in new services, although helped by the availability of broadband speeds on mobiles, would go to mobile operators.

"The introduction of a whole host of new players into the value chain presents new opportunities for growth in the mobile content and services market, whilst simultaneously posing a threat to mobile operators who face losing control of the billing relationship with their customers," Informa said.

It also forecast areas such as user-generated content, the rage of the Internet world in 2006, to come into the mobile space in the years ahead. Informa forecast user-generated content and communities to be worth $13.2 billion by 2011.

Apple iPhone - Indiatimes Infotech

The iPhone, which has no conventional buttons, instead uses a large touch-screen. The firm has patented keyboard technology on the 11.6 mm thick phone calling it "multi-touch". The 3.5 inch touch-screen-controlled device plays music, surfs the Internet and delivers voice mail and email differently.

The iPhone comes with a built-in, 2 MP digital camera as well as a slot for headphones and a SIM card. It runs Apple's OS X operating system, and has the Safari browser for Web access. The handset dispenses with buttons altogether, in favour of a powerful screen that responds to touch. It has a proximity sensor that automatically deactivates the screen and turns off the touch sensor when the device is raised to a user's face.

Music is automatically muted when a phone call comes in. The phone will play videos in widescreen format and automatically senses whether the screen is being held vertically or horizontally.

Has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and includes free BlackBerry-style 'push' email service from Yahoo. Apple is partnering with Yahoo Inc. on Web-based email and Google Inc on maps. To make a call, users can tap out the number on an on-screen keypad or scroll through their contacts and dial with a single touch. To zoom in on a photo or Web site, tap twice.

The Hottest Technology of 2007

S Wrapup

The Hottest Technology of 2007

What gizmos are going to buy this year?

If display at CES & Mac world was a signal. Then customers very soon will be provided networked televisions, cell phones with video & touch screens & a host of other products that take advantage of breakthroughs in multicore, HDTV, computing, ubiquitous broadband and third-generation cellular networks.

In one sentence it can be said this is going to be a revolution year. It’s going to be busier market than last year while last year it was a very busy market with huge amount of product circulation. Almost 24 million screens in droves were sold last year. Customers who bought it now desired for content, which would truly utilize the capabilities of their new sets. They can get these products in 2007.

A potential hit:

Media Smart wireless networking HDTVs from Hewlett-Packard & the Bravia Internet Video Link system from Sony which will make tight in the Internet to grip content over the Internet from AOL, Grouper, & Yahoo! Sony Pictures Entertainment deliver it right to the TV, without the need for a computer.

Apple launched its Apple TV box, which allows users to wirelessly stream movies and music from iTunes on their computer, while Netgear's upcoming Digital Entertainer HD can stream pretty much every other type of video and audio file from your PC and can also show videos from YouTube and songs from BitTorrent.

Further, Companies such as LG, Sharp and Samsung all have articulated their concentration towards networking their upcoming TVs. It means the television is becoming just another knot on the network. And it makes sense, seeing how today’s digital televisions are basically the evolution of the computer monitor, and the more processing power we stuff into the television, the more computer-like it becomes--a powerful tool that can pull its weight on a home network, taking back the title of the entertainment hub of the household.

Just as customers have invested money for new televisions, cellular providers have spent billions on their 3G networks. Sprint and Verizon now recommend EV-DO, while Cingular has just rolled out its UMTS/HSDPA service (Its nothing to know what the letter jumbles used for), both providing near broadband speeds for wireless devices. Business customers have gotten used to the speedy access to e-mail on the go using their smartphones, and now a new generation of these devices is slimmer, smarter and multifunctional. Even non-business types are also following this.

The market of CES was flooded in new smartphones (Treo 750) and music phones (Samsung SGH-F300 Ultra Music Phone), as well as television phones (LG VX9400). And Apple teased it and going to launch a phone with all the mentioned functions. (IPhone or whatever it’s going to be called once the Cisco lawsuit is over).

In this new era when cellular phones and televisions are getting joint its need a remanagement of technology. In the living room, remote controls are swiftly approaching an unmanageable array of buttons for various devices and on-screen menus so broad that it may spoilt more than an hour to get from channel 1 to channel 1001.So, as smartphones have become both smaller and more button heavy, there was a need for the design experts at Apple to move in and second thoughts the vital edge.

Watch for multitouch screens, led by Apple’s iPhone, to change the way we act together with our devices by eliminating hard buttons in favour of on-screen dynamic direction of icons. Voice control interfaces will also go from laughable novelties to amazingly exact input devices. Colbration of Microsoft with Ford motors shows, it has been smoothly trying his hand

They may introduce the Sync system in over a dozen of the automaker’s vehicles. As its name implies, Sync promises to link the entire driver’s various electronic devices under one voice-command system.
