iPHONE IN INDIA , FINALLY !!!!!


Iphone 3G

Well , Everyones love is finally here . Apple’s Iphone 3g probably has been the most anticipated phone ever . The long wait was finally over yesterday as the people were able to hold something that they wanted the most .

Two versions of iphone have been realeased one with 8 gb memory and the other one 16 gb and they cost around RS 31000 and RS 36000 respectively . Well, that might shock you as the iphone costs in US just around 200 $ which is around 8000 Rupees.

The phone comes either with airtel or vodaphone subscription similar to AT&T in US , which means that once u buy it u cannot change the network . Ofcourse , you can always unlock the phone but be ready to loose your warranty :P .

I read an interesting post by Soham yesterday who has written his experiece with iphone till . You can read it full here . HE has mentioned why he loves his iphone so much but the interesting thing which caught my attention was some of the limitations he mentioned like no sms fowrwarding, no camera zoom , cant transfer files from bluetooth :P (wonder why they have kept bluetooth then ) etc .

Most importantly ,the word 3g itself is quite meaningless in india as there are no 3g networks available here in india . And i dont see it coming any soon :P . So personally i dont feel ITs right time to buy iphone .

I have always wanted to buy an iphone ever since it was launched in US but then i guess the price is a big hurdle for me ,perhaps it would be for almost every middle class inidan . I am just waiting for all the craze to get over . I am sure the price would drop below 20k mark soon then i can lay my hands on it :D . People who are seriously interested in buying iphone at a cheaper price can either wait like me or can settle with this for now :lol: .

iphone vs Sex :lol:

iPHONE CLONES


Well , After Nokia its the now iphones turn to have a duplicate from korean market .I knew that there have been duplicate models of NOKIA N series from korean counterparts ,( Infact i have even written a post about that..You can check them out here ) ,But i was dumbfound when i found that that now even iPhone ‘s duplicates are being available at a very cheap price.

Apple had planned to release iPhone in india by next year but the unlocked versions of it are already available in the market at about 25000 bucks .A.nd if you have a paypal account it would be easier to buy it even online.And now with the duplicate models of it hitting the market the apple is set to incurr huge losses if they delay the release further.

The above pic shows one of the clones of iPhones .Yes you heard me right, one of the clones.While i was serching for these Iphones i found more than one versions of iphone each having different configuration and price .Well,quite franklly i dont know whether these come from CHINA or korea but what i know is these phones serve a good option when it comes to the desperate souls who want to have the pleasure of flaunting their phones at a cheap price of about 6000 to 7000 bucks.

Flabbergasting isn’t it???

Some of these iPhone clones even comes with features that are not even in the original iPhone :P like fingerprint sensor , handwriting recognition software ,dual sim card holder (dont know if original has one ) .

Other features like multimedia capabilities , camera ,connectivity are also available camera resolusion may differ freom clone to clone.However,one disadvantage in these clones are that you may not get a warranty for this peice so just in case you find your iPhone clone in trouble get urself ready to get a whole new peice again :P .

I dont know which of the clones are available out here in india . Check out some of the Iphone clones

SO , ALL those of you yearning for having a Iphone in your hand have three options

 

  • Get one of the clones but you might have to Compromise with the quality
  • Get an unlocked version of Iphone if you are ready to Shed 25000 bucks.
  • LAST option keep waiting till the APPLE announces the offical date for its own iphone launch.

Mobile Hacks


Do you think You are a mobile Geek..check out this !!!!

GOT this through a mail today..

(1)

EMERGENCY

* The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile** is 112 ..* If you find
yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is an
emergency,
dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to
establish the emergency number for you,
and interestingly this number 112
can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.
**Try it out.**

Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?

This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:
If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call
someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a   foot from your car door and have the person
at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on
their end. Your car will unlock.
Saves someone from having to drive your
keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,
and if you can reach someone who has the other “remote” for your car, you
can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Editor’s Note:
*It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!”*

Hidden Battery power
Imagine your cell battery is very low , you are expecting an important call
and you don’t have a charger.
Nokia instrument comes with a reserve
battery.
To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with
this reserve and the instrument will show a
50% increase in battery. This

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:
* # 0 6 #
A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your
handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone get
stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They
will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the
SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.

You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can’t use/sell it either.
If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

NOKIA VS NOKLA ???



Above two phones are two N95 sets , with a slight difference that one is NOKIA N95 and Other is NOKLA N95.

Confused ??? Well Nokla is some south korean or chinese counterpart of nokia which manufatures its own N series models and its so remarkably disguised as nokia N95 that even the most attentive of the customers would fall for it and assume it as an authentic N95 phone by nokia.

Well ,even i was flabbergasted by its resemblance to the orignal NOKIA n95. Actually its not only N95 whose clone is being sold freely in the market there are even other models of N series that are available in the market manufactured by the Nokla.

One month back i had written a post in which i had mentioned how badly i wanted the N95 set. After getting to know about the N95 (nokla ) i guess i can have a N 95 set at last :P . Yes , the orignal N95 would cost me around 25000 bucks however if i choose N95 (nokla ) i have to shell out just about 7000 rupees.Even If it is a duplicate one IT would be enough for me to flaunt it in my college :) . Though the warranty is not given it has some features that even orignal N95 doesn’t have..Seems queer ,right ??? yes, the duplicate one has a facility to watch Tv in it and It even has dual sim card feature through which you can use two sim cards by swapping each other at any time.

Howeever you have to compromise with some features like Nokla N95 has only 3.3 megapixel camera and there are no authentic service providers for the set if something happens ot the set.

NOW

How do u diffrentiate between the orignal and the duplicate One ??

THE above pics can show you the diffrence between the original and Fake N95′s.

Check out this for detailed article on how to spot the fake one.
