Choosing a phone for web browsing

This is a guest post by Simon about important points we need to check while choosing a Phone for Web browsing. For those that look for browsing over everything else from their phone there are a number of things to consider when purchasing a new handset. Connection speed, the screen size for browsing and the quality and accuracy of the touch on the screen are all very important, as is the processing power and the GPU – this ensures the images look top notch. Also for some people sound is a major factor and a number of phones are now coming with Dolby. This all leads to a top notch internet browsing experience and one that will satisfy the biggest junkies.

Currently a number of phones on the market have dual core processors, leading to superfast processing power; many of these also have excellent GPU’s for graphics. This all enhances the experience of the user.

Large screens like those on the Desire HD and Sensation, Samsung Galaxy SII and Motorola Atrix are excellent for browsing with and give an extra element for those who want to surf the net. Couple this with the high resolution of 540x960 (qHD) for the Atrix and Sensation and you have an unrivalled visual experience.

Connection speed is also very important and this is down to the network provider just as much as the phone. Three Mobile offers a large data allowance and has quite fast 3G connectivity so it’s always worth looking into. HSDPA 3G data connections come in a variety of speeds and this can have a bearing on the type of internet activity you may doing (watching videos on YouTube for example is going to require fast 3G to avoid frustration).

Many cities now have Wi-Fi hotspots and although these may not be on offer in smaller towns and rural areas just yet it can be an excellent idea to get a phone with good Wi-Fi connectivity. This can allow you to connect to the internet through an existing wireless connection rather than being charged for browsing on your phone network.

Some will find emails of huge importance to them and in that case a full QWERTY keyboard will be of the utmost importance. This means they will possibly look into purchasing a BlackBerry or phones with sliding QWERTY keyboards like the Motorola Milestone 2. Also for those who feel Facebook is their calling, there are a number of phones orientated towards serving them also, most notably the HTC Chacha and Salsa or a number of phones from INQ including the recent Cloud Touch and Cloud Q.

Dolby is also available on a number of HTC and Sony Ericsson phones and this leads to a better quality of sound and for those that enjoy streaming this can be a central factor in choosing a device.

The Internet browsing experience on mobile has come on a long way since the days of WAP phones, so decide on the sort of browser you are and you’re sure to find one that suits you. You can find a comparison of the best and latest web savvy smartphones from Best Mobile Contracts along with helpful information about browsing the web on your phone.

5 Common Examples Of Website Design Mistakes by Business Owners

This is a guest post by Sachin about five Common Examples Of Website Design Mistakes by Business Owners . When most business owners think about website design, they think about a brochure online. Online shopping sites are making a lot of money with the use of web-based applications to sell products, collect payments an arrange delivery. The only work left to do is pack and send the boxes.

For those of us left with a job, we can be thankful that many business owners make the following mistakes when it comes to websites and web design.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…

Is Windows To Go the Real Innovation of Windows 8?

Due to the buzz around the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, we've been treated to many variations on the pros and cons for tablets and desktops. However, the coverage tends to leave out what may be the single most useful feature of Microsoft's next-generation operating system: Windows To Go.

Essentially, Windows To Go puts a fully bootable Windows 8 installation on a USB drive. You'll carry around your OS and plug it into whatever device you need to use. If it's the first time you do so, the PC will configure all of the relevant device drivers, and store the necessary settings on the USB drive for next time. Unsurprisingly, Microsoft is marketing this feature toward enterprise customers who might otherwise question the need to upgrade.

Creating a Windows To Go drive wasn't one of the features available for hands-on testing via the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. Sean Gallagher of Ars Technica provided a way to 'build your own,' but admits that it's "a task …
