The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2011-09-30T15:50:05Z Facetime Is Just One Of The Great Features On The iPhone 4 2011-09-30T15:50:05Z facetime-is-just-one-of-the-great-features-on-the-iphone-4 The iPhone 4 boasted many improvements over previous models when it was released in 2010. The new Retina display was a stand out feature as was the improved 1Ghz processor. One feature that was heavily advertised was the Facetime video calling system and it has quickly established itself as one of the key facilities on the phone. Here we take a look at Facetime and other video chat systems that are available on this impressive model.Facetime was introduced to the world on the 7th June 2010 by the CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs. The system enables users of the iPhone 4, the second generation iPad and the fourth generation iPod Touch to communicate with one another via a front facing camera installed on each device. Facetime only works between these Apple products but given the brands popularity in the marketplace this does not pose to much of a problem. Unlike previous video calling platforms Facetime only work via a WiFi connection. Whilst this has obvious limitations when you are on the move it does ensure that when you do have an appropriate connection the quality of the service surpasses all other efforts. Thanks to the data transfer speeds offered by WiFi users not only experience a high standard of audio but video also appears crystal clear. Other video calling platforms suffer from their use of a cellular data network that simply could not handle the pressure placed upon it by this kind of call. The result of this is that video images often appear blurred and audio stutters and regularly drops out. The interface for Facetime is simple, your screen displays the picture of whoever you are talking to and a smaller box is presented in the corner which shows you what the other person can see. This box can be moved to any corner of the screen that suits you and another small button on the display enables you to switch to the phones main camera in order to show your contact what is going on around you.The popular App Store now offers a range of video calling applications for the iPhone 4. The most well known of these is Skype and the advantage of this system is that it works on both a 3G connection as well as WiFi. Obviously there is a loss in quality when calling over a 3G network and user must be aware of how much data allowance is included in their monthly price plan. The fact that a cellular network can be used does however mean there are more places where you can conduct a video call. Skype is also a cross platform application which makes it easy to call a friend who may be using a phone on an Android or Symbian operating system. Because Skype is not integrated into the OS of the iPhone 4 it is a slightly more complicated way of conducting this kind of call and it also lacks the overall quality that Facetime offers, however it is a great alternative for people who are often travelling and cannot be limited to having a WiFi connection. There are of course other handsets that use a front facing camera. The HTC Evo 3D is one of the best alternatives for video calling and a variety of applications such as Skype can be used and they look superb on the handsets large display. Facetime however remains the ultimate tool for making video calls.Facetime is key feature on the iPhone 4 as any person who own the handset will testify. Its quality remains superb whilst availability of third party programmes such as Skype means that video calling is becoming a much more widely used feature than ever before.The iPhone 4 and the HTC Evo 3D are available now. Sky TV Applications Benefit The iPhone 4 2011-09-30T11:16:21Z sky-tv-applications-benefit-the-iphone-4 One of the main attractions of the Apple iPhone 4 is the number of applications that are available for download. These applications can range from the latest games to utilities that help you in your everyday life. Here we take a look at some of the excellent applications that are offered by Sky TV. Sky is part of the British Sky Broadcasting network and are a media company in the UK who offer consumers a huge variety of television and IT services.The latest addition to Skys applications for the iPhone 4 is the new Sky Go system. Sky Go is a service which is available to all subscribers to the Sky TV sports service. The system enables users to download the application to their handset and effectively turn their phone into a portable TV. Sky Go offers a selection of five sports channels which you can watch on your phone in real time. The phone does need to be connected to a 3G or a WiFi network but with coverage so widespread this should really not prove to much of a problem. Imagine travelling home form work on the train whilst watching your favourite football team in action. Sky Go makes this possible and the iPhone 4 is the perfect device for such a service thanks to its high quality screen and excellent sound. If you would prefer to watch the action on the big screen when you get home then there is another application named Sky+ which enables you to set up recordings on you Sky TV Receiver from any location. This can prove invaluable if you have forgot to record your favourite series or are late returning home. The range of applications such as these illustrates just how much the whole home entertainment spectrum is now linked with smartphones, laptops and home televisions all communicating with one another.Sky also offer applications which are designed solely for use on your iPhone 4. Sky Sports News is an invaluable application which brings a wealth of sporting news direct to your handset. The feature is easy to use with a homescreen that offers headlines from a variety of sporting fields. If you prefer you can restrict this page to just showing new stories from one particular sport such as football or boxing. The application is also useful for checking on forthcoming fixtures or results of recent games. All in all this is an essential iPhone 4 application for any sports fan. On a similar note there is also the Sky News app which is similar but rather than concentrating on sports it focuses on news. You have options to check world news, local news, sports and a number of other categories. If you want to keep up to date with what is happening around you then this should be a definite download.The iPhone 4 is a high quality handset that really benefits from the third party applications that are available to it. The Sky selection of apps are both useful and informative and are a perfect accompaniment to this superb phone.The iPhone 4 and the White iPhone 4 are available now. We Compare The HTC Radar With The Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray 2011-09-30T09:07:31Z we-compare-the-htc-radar-with-the-sony-ericsson-xperia-ray Here we take a look at two next generation handsets from HTC and Sony Ericsson. The Radar and the Xperia Ray are two new phones aimed firmly at the mass smartphone market but which of these models holds the upper hand?With more features than ever being packed into the modern handset the processing power of the device is becoming vitally important. Without sufficient power operation on the handset will suffer and ultimately limit the phones appeal. Both the HTC Radar and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray boast impressive chipsets and turn out to be very evenly matched in this area. The Radar uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon set up which includes a powerful 1Ghz Scorpion processor and an Adreno 205 graphics processing unit. The handset also offers 512MB of RAM memory which is slightly disappointing given that the new Windows Mango OS that the phone uses now supports true multi tasking. The Xperia Ray matches the Radar step for step in this area by offering an identical chipset and the same amount of RAM. This means both the phones perform admirably and will suffice the average phone user whilst not matching the power offered by many top end models such as the HTC Sensation XE and the Samsung Galaxy S2. The phones do differ slightly when we take a look at the storage capacity that is available. The Radar offers users a respectable 8GB of storage but without the comfort of a micro SD card slot should you need to expand upon this. The Xperia Ray does include an external card slot but also sports a much smaller built in capacity of 1GB.Neither of these models offers excessively large screens with the manufacturers playing it safe and offering displays that measure less than 4 inches in a bid to make the models more appealing in the size department. The HTC Radar incorporates a 3.8 inch screen which uses the very latest S-LCD technology in order to produce a bright and vivid image. The phone offers a pixels per inch rating of 246 thanks to a high standard 480 x 800 resolution. Despite the quality of this screen it struggles to match what the excellent Xperia Ray can offer. A huge 297 PPI can be displayed thanks to a combination of the 3.3 inch size together with its 480 x 854 resolution. The only downside of the Sony screen is that it does not use toughened glass which means the display may be more susceptible than other models to picking up scratches and marks.Both the HTC Radar and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray are impressive handsets that boast high quality screens together with powerful processors that ensure fast operation. Anybody looking for a smartphone without the extra bulk of some of the larger models would be well advised to have a close look at both of these devices.The HTC Radar and the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray are available now. Guessing Games Continue About The Official iPhone 5 Name 2011-09-30T08:08:50Z guessing-games-continue-about-the-official-iphone-5-name We will soon see the launch of Apples latest iPhone. At present we do not know what this handset will be called but whichever title it adopts you can be assured that it will quickly become one of the biggest selling handsets of 2011. For the purposes of this piece we shall refer to the model as the iPhone 5. Here we take a look at the possible names of this new model along with some other rumours which have recently circulated about its release.Logic dictates that the new Apple device will be named the iPhone 5 given that the last phone was the iPhone 4. There are some suggestions however that this may not be the title given to the new phone. Some reports are suggesting that Apple may opt to name the phone the iPhone 4S. The S was added to the iPhone 3G when it was updated and stood for "speed" as the device was a much faster model than its predecessor. Given that the new iPhone is likely to include Apples new A5 chipset we will see significant increases in performance speeds tanks to the dual core processor that it uses. Does this signify that the iPhone 5 may actually become the iPhone 4S, especially as many of the phones features such as the Retina Display resolution will remain unchanged? Another possibility although a fairly unlikely one is that the phone may be christened as the iPhone 4G. In order for this name to work however the handset would need to operate on the ultra fast 4G mobile network which is unlikely. Some countries such as the UK also do not support such a network so this name is the least likely to be used. Of course the remaining possibility may be to call the phone the very obvious iPhone 5. This will tie in nicely with Apples launch of the iOS5 operating system. The main reason why this name may not be used is if Apple are planning a major release next Spring and may want to keep hold of this name until then, this has been rumoured but at present there is no concrete information.It is likely that we will see the iPhone 5 launched in the US around the 21st of October which is around one month away. It remains to be seen whether the UK will see a launch on this day or whether we will see it introduced a couple of weeks later. There are plenty of reasons to believe we will see an October launch for this handset. Pre orders are being taken in the United States from the first of October whilst Sprint, one of Americas leading networks, have cancelled staff leave over this period. The recent fall in price of the iPhone 4 suggests that a new model is imminent and the launch of the highly anticipated iOS5 operating system has been suitably delayed to coincide with the new model. One thing that we can be assured of is that whenever Apple chose to release this model we can expect similar levels of interest that were experienced with last years launch of the iPhone 4.The iPhone 5 looks sure to inject fresh life into a mobile phone market that has been dominated by the Samsung Galaxy S2 over the past few months. Expect to see patient consumers lining the street outside Apple stores very soon.The iPhone 5 is coming soon and the iPhone 4 is available now iPhone 5 - Get Instant Mobile Messaging With The iMessage 2011-09-29T17:22:17Z iphone-5-get-instant-mobile-messaging-with-the-imessage The Apple iPhone 5 is said to be first device to be powered by the Cupertino firm's latest mobile software version.

This will allow you to send and receive unlimited messages without spending a penny on SMS. In addition, it also allows you chat with a group of friends simultaneously.With this IM, you are not limited to text. You can send or receive a number multitude of file formats.

The HTC Titan And The HTC Radar Both Sport Windows Mango OS 2011-09-29T11:50:51Z the-htc-titan-and-the-htc-radar-both-sport-windows-mango-os Windows have now launched the Mango update of their mobile operating system and we are now seeing the first devices filter into the marketplace that run on this platform. HTC have a tradition of producing a good range of Windows phones and this looks set to continue with two new models ready for launch. Here we take a look at the HTC Titan and the HTC Radar and see which model comes out on top?HTC always produce well built handsets that look attractive whilst never really grabbing your attention. This rule can certainly be applied to the Titan and the Radar as they are both unmistakably HTC devices. They sport the same rectangular design with rounded corners that is found on the majority of the firms models. Both of the handsets are impressive with their overall depth measurements, especially the Titan which at 9.9mm is one of the slimmest phones available. The Titan does offer a much bigger display than the Radar at 4.7 inches and therefore the unit not only measures up larger in width and height but also weighs 23 grammes more at 160 grammes. Despite its extra size and weight the Titan is the more appealing of these two phones from a design point of view. The fact that it also incorporates a larger screen is a real attraction of this model. The 4.7 inch display offers a high quality 480 x 800 resolution but thanks to the larger screen size this equates to a pixels per inch rating of just 198. The HTC Radar on the other hand offers a smaller 3.8 inch display with the same resolution but thanks to the smaller screen the pixels per inch on offer here is an impressive 245 meaning that this device ultimately boasts the higher image quality.Internal storage is impressive on both the HTC Titan and the Radar. Despite neither model offering an external card slot users should find the 16GB offered on the Titan ample for all manner of usage including music storage and video. The Radar offers a smaller 8GB of capacity which means the unit will not store many movies or an expansive music collection. One could argue that this should not pose to much of a problem as anybody looking for a true multi media device is likely to opt for the larger screened Titan. The amount of space offered on the Radar is plenty for the average phone user however. These two models both operate on a powerful single core processor. The Titan offers the most impressive of these two chips with its 1.5Ghz offering which is twice the power of the processor that the Radar offers. It is worth remembering however that the Radar does not require all of the power that the Titan possess as its screen is much smaller and therefore places less strain on the chip.HTC have produced two great new Windows phones in the shape of the Titan and the Radar and we look forward to seeing what other models the company introduce over the coming months.The HTC Titan and the HTC Radar are available now. A Closer Look At The HTC Radar 2011-09-29T10:12:22Z a-closer-look-at-the-htc-radar HTC look set to launch their annual assault on the Windows phone market with several new models that will be running the new Mango version of the popular platform. Here we take a look at the HTC Radar, a phone that has seemingly taken a step back from the ultra competitive large screen market and pitched itself nicely to consumers looking for a stylish and compact model that is still packed full of features. It is obvious that HTC have spent some time trying to make this phone stand out from the dozens of modern smartphones currently available. The Radar is available in both a black finish or a slightly more eye catching white design complete with silver trimmings. The fact that the phone offers a 3.8 inch display means the phone is slightly more compact than some of the brands recent offerings but it does maintain the chunky and well constructed feel that is evident with all HTC models. The overall dimensions of the model are 120 x 61.5 x 10.8 mm and the weight of the device is a fairly average 137 grammes. The easiest way to describe this phone is basically a smaller version of the HTC Flyer tablet device which was released earlier this year. The phones offers a high quality S-LCD display capable of displaying a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Whilst this may not be the highest resolution available the smaller screen size compensates for this and results in an impressive pixels per inch rating of 238. The usual array of sensors are integrated in the screen so a proximity and light sensor are both available when needed and the screen also supports multi touch enabling it to register more than one point of contact at a time.The HTC Radar incorporates a second generation Snapdragon chipset which includes a 1Ghz processor. Despite not boasting the power of some of its more high specification rivals the Radar effortlessly handles all tasks and upon using the phone we noticed no issues with the devices overall speed. This is useful for the new multi tasking facilities which are part of the Windows Mango platform. This enables you to leave the task you are currently performing in order to access another area of the phone. The first task is left running in the background so you can return to it whenever you like without losing any progress. This is superb if you are playing a game but need to quickly send an e mail or browsing the web but want to skip tracks on the phones audio player.The HTC Radar is a fun and stylish device which boast some features that are on a par with some more well known handsets such as the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S2. The nice sized display and modern finish are two features which standout but there really is a lot to like about this new model.The HTC Radar and the iPhone 4 are available now.
