What Makes the Xperia Arc so Attractive?

This is a guest post by Simon about the reasons for which Xperia Arc is very Attractive.
Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc is the first thing Sony has done in the mobile market for a long time that deserves applause. So why is the Arc so good? Let's check out our five favorite things about Sony’s device.



Attractive



The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is an attractive device. We’re not saying that Sony has produced ugly phones before, but this one is a wonderful marriage of beauty and functionality. The Arc has an arced shape that feels great and looks nicely individual. Its large 4.2in screen, thin bezel and diminutive 8.7mm width all add to it being a lovely phone to look at and to hold. It’s a breath of fresh air in a market surrounded by black rectangular, minimalist lumps of mass.



Engine



We’re talking about two different engines here. The Arc uses a 1GHz single core that reminds us that the one core phone still has its place in today's market. It’s fast and responsive and deals well with most things thrown at it. This is accompanied by 512MB of RAM and the excellent BRAVIA engine. The BRAVIA engine ensures the smooth running of the devices screen and motions look slick and fast on the display. It is the same technology used in Sony’s TVs and provides a superb picture quality with videos and images.



Screen



As we’ve just mentioned the BRAVIA motion engine, we couldn’t scrimp on talking about the display. It is a 480x854 screen that is something similar to the Super AMOLED Plus of the Galaxy S II in terms of quality. It’s bright and images and text look very appealing on it and gleam for the naked eye. Its 4.2in size and the BRAVIA motion engine make watching footage a dream, and it also performs better than the Galaxy in sunlight.



Camera



Sony Ericsson Eperia could not be reviewed without a mention of the excellent 8.1mp camera that it has. The Exmor R sensor has been taken from Sony’s compacts and added to the device to ensure it has a camera worthy of most compacts. Sony has really pushed the boat out here and it is up there with the Nokia N8’s 12mp in terms of quality. The device also records 1080p videos, however it is let down by the fact it has no front VGA.



Operating system



Aside from the dodgy Timescape social network software Sony has done a great job with the Arc’s OS. Android 2.3 has really helped Sony jump right in with the big boys HTC and Samsung and this phone really offers a lovely, bright and quick experience for the user.



The Xperia Arc is one of the finest phones that Sony Ericsson has released in the last few years and is the perfect blend of form and function, with the latest Android features and one of the most unique, ergonomic and visually appealing physical designs currently on the market.

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. Smart applications can even print out the labels, so the only thing left to do it stick them on the box. Unfortunately, in many cases, websites are replacing people.

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…
