CTIA 2012: President Clinton Claims Cell Phones Have Drastically Changed Countries

clock May 11, 2012 00:34 by author Jeremy

CTIA, now more commonly known as The Wireless Association, held their annual wireless telecommunications trade show this past week, with a closing keynote from President Bill Clinton.

Since his departure from presidency, Clinton has continued to create and work with programs in countries all over the world that help economic growth and stability. He admits that much of the change that can be seen happening worldwide is credited towards wireless communication, with an emphasis on cell phones.

"In 2010, a UN report said that wireless technology is becoming a common medium and has done more to bring people out of poverty than anything else in history." Clinton used fishing families in Southeast Asian countries as one example: "If we gave every one of them a cell phone, they could immediately find out what the cost of fish was and increase their income 30-50% over a year."

Mobile phones have even had an effect on banking. In 2011, 80% of Hatians had access to a cell phone, which helped them more easily access their funds.

While much of Clinton's speech also dealt with politics, he made his point clear that cooperating together and using technology such as recent wireless innovations can easily steer countries toward better futures.

HTC One X: Built-In Battery, Built-In Frustration

clock April 25, 2012 23:16 by author Jeremy

I'm not the first to admit that I can't stop eyeing the HTC One X - as an award-winner from Mobile World Congress 2012, just about everyone expects its sales to go through the roof. Justifiably so, considering the specs behind this behemoth of a phone.

But, there is a catch: the battery. Most phones nowadays make use of removable/replaceable batteries, which is handy when we feel like carrying spares, or when the battery is just old and needs to be replaced. HTC's high-end smartphone, however, has a built-in battery.

What does this mean for users? Well, no more resetting a freezing phone by removing the battery (but that's not so bad). Also, you may need to contact a specialist in case your battery ever stops working (or replace it yourself by removing the back-casing, but that isn't recommended, of course). Current reports indicate that the One X's 1800mAh battery doesn't last too long, which might be expected given the powerful processor and graphics the phone provides.

And since you can't (easily) replace the battery yourself, you might as well carry around a high-quality charger whenever possible!

KDDI Corp. replaces Sony batteries in Casio, Hitachi phones

clock October 10, 2011 22:34 by author Jeremy

Three phone models (two by Casio, one by Hitachi) will be replacing their Sony-made batteries with KDDI Corp. batteries, the second-largest mobile phone operator in Japan. This is due to concerns about the batteries overheating.

Sony, a giant in consumer electronics, has had several recalls over the years, including several years in a row (starting 2006) of Dell laptop batteries. They're also known for their recent issues this past year revolving around computer hacks made against the company.

The phones in question were sold between 2007 and 2009. There have been customer complaints in both 2010 and 2011 of the batteries overheating, which may result in the battery melting.

While a change of batteries in three handheld electronic phones may not have a large effect on the company's monetary standing, it could definitely affect their reputation.
