Mobile phone chargers to be standardized across Europe

Mobile phone chargers to be standardized across Europe

June 29th, 2009

A number of major players in the mobile industry have signed an agreement to standardize charging ports for mobile devices sold in the European Union. Beginning in 2010, companies including Motorola, Apple, LG, NEC, Research in Motion, Samsung, Qualcomm, and Sony Ericsson will use microUSB ports on new devices sold in Europe, doing away with proprietary chargers that not only cause consumer headache but also result in thousands of tons of waste each year. The European agreement comes months after a similar standardization was endorsed by the CTIA, an international wireless trade group, also making microUSB ports the charging standard in the United States by 2012.

The LG enV Touch is the successor to the company’s popular Voyager model, and the new age version of the original enV VX 99000 that debuted in 2007. And with an updated and sleeker design and interface, 3.2 megapixel camera/camcorder with flash and autofocus, full HTML browser, and support for a litany of Verizon services, there’s plenty for the Touch’s older siblings to be envious about.

How To Prolong Cell Phone Battery Life

June 24th, 2009

New batteries should be fully charged before their first use to obtain maximum capacity. Nickel-based batteries should be charged for 16 hours initially and run through 2-4 full charge/full discharge cycles, while lithium ion batteries should be charged for about 5-6 hours. Ignore the phone telling you that the battery is full–this is normal but is not accurate if the battery is not initialized. Read More

If competition in the cell phone market is war – and it is, particularly this month with the release of 28 hot new phones – call the LG’s trio of phones coming out in June brothers in arms. The middle brother, if you will, is the enV3 – falling in between the Glance and enV Touch in price and feature load. The enV3 has only a slight facelift as compared to the enV2, but is packing a fully enhanced feature set that looks alone wouldn’t hint at. Read More

Meet the Motorola Rival. The Rival looks cute and cuddly – and my psychedelic purple demo model (also comes in a “Tin Silver” that isn’t so loud) is the epitome of what you would imagine a 14 year old “Texting Tammy” clutching 24/7. Looks can be deceiving, however. And this maxim certainly rings true with the Rival. This QWERTY slider packs a surprising amount of power, and would not only thrill your teenage daughter, but would please anyone looking for a phone with a long list Smartphone-esque features that also comes at a smart price.
