Features and Accessories for the Blackberry Torch}

June 26th, 2011 No comments

Many accessories have been prepared to accommodate the new BlackBerry torch, the latest offering from Research in Motion.

Accessories such as cases, holsters, chargers, extra batteries, and hands free kits help boost the functionality and efficiency of the phone. Other accessories are not designed to increase your efficiency as much as they are designed to protect your Blackberry Torch, or in some cases, protect you or other people from injury due to distraction when using your smart phone (they call them Crackberries for a reason).

A Blackberry Torch case is a useful accessory to protect your new investment from any kind of damage. This little smart phone is tough and comes with reinforced layers to help reduce accidental damage. However, any smart phone is still susceptible to damage, and this is where a good case comes in. A leather, plastic, or hard shell case can make the difference between your Blackberry Torch cracking when it falls on the floor or gets hit by something. It is also possible to buy clear cases to enable you to see the body of your Torch while having it protected.

Another important accessory you should consider for your Blackberry Torch is something to ensure the good condition of the screen. A Blackberry Torch screen protector is a good idea if you plan to take your phone everywhere with you, as it can keep your screen from becoming scratched, dinged, or worst of all, broken. No matter how careful you are with a smart phone, it can be damaged at anytime at the nearest mishap or other unfortunate accident. Modern screen protectors will allow you to use your screen efficiently without compromising its security.

The Blackberry Torch offers a number of features smart phone addicts will enjoy, including a 5 megapixel built in camera that includes flash, face detection, auto focus, scene modes, image stabilization, video recording, and zoom technology. This camera allows you to take pictures with better clarity on the go when you don’t have an actual camera with you. The video camera included in the Torch can capture continuous video at 640 x 480 resolution, which is more than enough for a regular television.

This is definitely the smartest device that Blackberry has even engineered. Not only does it come with a 624 MHz processor and 512 mb of internal flash memory, it includes the latest Blackberry operating system, Blackberry 6, which will allow you to make your smart phone even smarter. The 1270 mAh battery included with the Blackberry Torch will allow you to talk, surf, text, and chat for longer than ever, and the wireless capabilities mean you will almost never be out of a signal.

With accessories users will find that this is one of the best smart phones currently out on the market. Blackberry Torch accessories not only add protection they also increase and enhance functionality. What this means is that accessories will help your device last a long time and will help you get the most out of it.

Staying Organized with the Samsung Infuse

June 19th, 2011 No comments

Using a calendar is one of the easiest and most convenient way that a device like the Infuse can help you stay organized. You can either use the built in calendar that comes with the Android powered Infuse 4G or download any number of separate calendar apps; the choice is up to you. No matter what method you choose you should quickly put all of your appointments and obligations onto the calendar program. Through the settings you can make your phone ring or vibrate whenever your appointments are coming up so that you do not miss them.

Applications that can help you with note taking are also essential to help you stay on course. If you are taking on 2 or 3 tasks it can be very hard to stay on top of everything. Having a way to take notes can be a boon for your organizational abilities, and this is where the Samsung Infuse 4G can come in handy. You can either use the built in notes app, which is simple enough to use, or you can download a wide range of specialized apps for note taking. It is very important for you to try different ones so that you find one that works good for you.

Alternatively, you might already have used a number of calendar and note apps to help you keep track of your day, and maybe you are still having trouble keeping your head above the water. This is where apps that help with scheduling can come in handy. When you have long term goals that seem to keep sneaking up on you, it can help to have staged reminders built in. These are essentially reminders that pop up at different times as you get closer to deadlines in order to help you remember them. The more reminders you build in, the less likely you are to forget what you need to get done. These reminders can be set through your calendar application.

This mobile phone offers users many ways to stay organized though built-in features or through the many available applications for your device. Some applications are free while others require you to pay a small fee.

Beyond these apps, you might also want to look into some of the many Samsung Infuse 4G accessories on the market, such as a Samsung Infuse 4G case or a Samsung Infuse 4G screen protector. These accessories are the most convenient way to keep your mobile device protected during everyday use.

Applications for the Motorola ATRIX 4G

June 9th, 2011 No comments

Portable gaming has come a long way in just a few years. Now, the newest smart phones, such as the Motorola Atrix 4G, are just as powerful as dedicated handheld consoles. This article will discuss how good mobile gaming with the Atrix 4G is. This article will also discuss how users can take full advantage of mobile gaming.

The Android OS is perfect for gaming because all of the Android-based devices are capable of handling mobile gaming. The ATRIX 4G by Motorola is one of the few smart phones that stands out. Not only can this dual-core beast play any Android game on the market smoothly, it even has a wide range of Motorola Atrix accessories available specifically geared toward making it an even better gamer. In this article, we’ll take a close look at gaming on the new Motorola Atrix 4G, and we’ll consider some of the way that you can maximize your experience.

In addition to a spec sheet that will cause you to geek out, the Atrix has a built-in charger that allows the battery to remain fully charged when you’ve connected it to a compatible laptop docking station. A separate charger is required unless you separate the devices. In addition, the default battery is only 1930mAh, so most gamers and power users will want to consider upgrading to an enhanced Motorola Atrix battery. You may even include a 1930mAh battery in there to be a spare.

The dock station works like a fully functional sync-charger, but the coolest aspect of this laptop integration is that you can actually output the Atrix display to the laptop. What this means for gaming is that you have access to a larger screen, and can also uses any controllers supported by the laptop. There’s a lot of versatility here being able to connect your Atrix and PC/Mac laptop so seamlessly. The one thing you’re going to have to watch for is that you don’t choose a Motorola Atrix case that interferes with the docking station. That is not a huge problem but it is something to watch out for.

Of course, you don’t need the Atrix connected to the laptop for it to be a capable gamer. It works quite well as a handheld. And since it has the 1000MHz dual-core NVidia Tegra CPU inside, it can run all of the mobile games out there. NVidia is designing some specifically for this CPU, games that won’t run at all on lesser capable smart phones. When used as a handheld gamer, we found the steering wheel disc-style accessories to be particularly convenient. These relatively inexpensive accessories look like small, lightweight Frisbees, and they hold the Atrix at the center of the disc. The outter ring is used to game rather than having to turn the phone side to side. It’s quite nice for gamers with big hands.

But the Atrix really shines most when using the dock because it takes advantage of the laptop battery. Even when you’re out and about and don’t have access to a wall outlet, it’s still a big improvement using the laptop battery because of how much longer you can game without the hassle of switching batteries and charging them. So if you’re looking for a gaming-capable smart phone, take a long, hard look at the new Motorola Atrix.

Top RSS Readers for the HTC Thunderbolt

June 5th, 2011 No comments

Users love the HTC Thunderbolt because it has the Android OS with HTC Sense, a gorgeous 4.3-inch screen and a host of other features. The HTC Thunderbolt is unlike any smart phone we have seen. HTC even made sure it had an amazing lineup of HTC Thunderbolt accessories available on the market before it ever released the device itself. So getting the perfect HTC Thunderbolt case or HTC Thunderbolt screen protector shouldn’t be a problem. But today, we’re going to focus on RSS, an option that we use our smart phones for and something which the HTC Thunderbolt is great at. So without further ado, let’s look at the top four RSS readers for your HTC Thunderbolt.

Featuring the spot, we have gReader, a simple RSS feed client. The biggest decision you’ll have to make using gReader is whether you want to view your feeds by site or in one big list. Oh, and did we mention that it’s fast, as in lightning fast? GReader may not be everything that a RSS power user desires from a newsreader, but not everyone is really a “power user”.. They just want fast, simple access to their favorite new sources, and that’s something gReader does better than any other app does.

Coming in at number two is FeedR. FeedR is a great tool for those users who track many sources. It allows you to define color-coded categories that you can easily label and tag, and then you can use these categories to organize various feeds. The good news is that it does all of this while still providing seamless integration with your Google Reader account. It’s also great how you can take a category and drop it onto the home screen as a shortcut. That’s a great way to have easy access to business news, entertainment news, sport news and so forth.

Our third choice is FastReader. This newsreader easily lives up to its name and it’s arguably the only application that’s faster than the gReader. But that speed comes at a cost. The user’s interface is minimal at best, and it has none of the bells and whistles that the gReader features. However, FastReader is a great choice if you treasure speed and efficiency above all else. So it might just be the best choice for those users who regularly deal with a dodgy connection. This lets you get in and get out fast.

Lastly, we choose FeedSquares. As many applications claim to be innovative, FeedSquares however is an application with an unique approach. Most RSS applications are organized and provide a simple and structured approach. FeedSquares takes a visual approach, and it can be quite effective for those users who work better visually. The UI represents each feed as a colored box with a brief snippet of text. Boxes are colored based on criteria you’ve set, similar to the categories that FeedR uses. But what we love most is the UI’s responsiveness and the way you can move boxes around as you sort through your news.

Different Cases for the HTC Surround

May 29th, 2011 No comments

One thing you must know about cases is that they generally come in 2 different styles, leather and plastic. Leather tends to cost a bit more than plastic, but many users find that plastic cases work a lot better.

Some people will naturally gravitate toward plastic cases because they are more interested in physical protection than physical attractiveness, or because they are interested in saving as much money as possible after pouring so much of it into the smart phone itself, or because they simply prefer the simple look of plastic cases to the more fashion conscious look of leather cases.

While plastic cases are more economical, many people still prefer leather cases because they are attracted to the classic look or because they tend to be more stylish. Whatever the reasons, there are certain people who will naturally be drawn to one or the other type of smart phone case, and there is nothing wrong with that if you are or are not such a person.

You will want to decide between the two types of cases to make your shopping for HTC Surround accessories such as an HTC Surround case a little easier. To help out let me share some advice, it all comes down to personal preference, so of you are low in cash, like that style better than this one, or whatever, just be sure to know that it is your choice and any type of case will keep you protected. You will not always be able to try out the accessory in person, however, so you will want to read reviews ahead of time so you know which models to go for and which ones to avoid.

Finally, you might also want to pick up an extra HTC Surround battery while you are out shopping for accessories. Smart phones tend to use a lot of power because of all of the great features. Having a spare battery can only work in your favor and can even be a life saver.
