The iPhone 5S could come from the factory looking something like this as soon as May.

A new year brings with it new iPhone 5S rumors. And this time around the latest from Apple could even come in pink.

Analyst Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets is all bullish on Apple this morning claiming his sources tell him that the next iPhone will arrive in May or June with more choices for customers including "more color patterns and screen sizes." Apparently White's bulls aren't seeing just red Apples, though. Rather, he believes the iPhone 5S could have as many color choices as the most recent generation of the iPod Touch:

These colors included pink, yellow, blue, white & silver, black & slate... We believe the addition of color to the iPod Touch lineup was a testing ground for adding color to the next generation iPhone that we believe could be available in eight colors in total.

White also says his "checks" indicate that Apple could be planning to offer a single iPhone model in different screen sizes for the first time, perhaps opening the door to a lower-priced iPhone, or going after consumers interested in the trend of bigger phones and phablets like Samsung's higher-end Galaxy line of phones.


The rumor fits with the way Apple A1175 Battery has traditionally worked and their movements of late. Testing the waters with the iPod Touch for an improvement to the iPhone and offering consumers greater choices to compete with the broadening market sounds a lot like Tim Cook's way of thinking to me.


Besides, what else is there for the iPhone fan who lines up for each iteration to buy? How about a second iPhone for his girlfriend or mother in pink? Brilliant.

CES is just over a week away, and Samsung has given us a taste of what it'll be bringing to the world's biggest tech fair. It promises to show off its new smart TV platform, known as Smart Hub. As well as TV shows and films, it'll bring together all your apps, social networks, music and more.

According to the Samsung Tomorrow blog, the user interface will be split up into five categories. These are On TV (live TV), Movies and TV Shows (video on-demand), Apps, Social, and the fifth one is Photos, Videos & Music.


There's also a new way to navigate the menu, known as the 'Flipping' function. Using the motion control, you 'flip' your way through screens -- Samsung compares it to how you'd flip through the pages of a Toshiba pa3285u-3bas battery book.


The menu will have a tile-based layout, similar to Microsoft's Windows 8.

As a long term user of Windows Phone 7, the decision to upgrade to Windows Phone 8 was made all the more difficult by Microsoft’s revelation that they wouldn’t be completely abandoning the older release.


Instead, the older devices would be receiving an upgrade to what is called Windows Phone 7.8, an update that begins rolling out in December 2012 and which offers a bunch of improvements to the existing Windows Phone 7.5 release of the slick and stylish OS.


While the first generation devices (for example the HTC devices such as the HD7 and the Nokia devices including the Lumia 800) won’t be given the same feature upgrades as the new Windows Phone 8, there are still quite a few improvements that will be introduced…

Windows Phone 8: The Hardware Conundrum

One of the key issues with swapping a Windows Phone 7 handset with a Windows Phone 8 device is the basic fact that the new phones are designed for the future.

For instance, while Windows Phone 7 (above) has a single core processor, Windows Phone 8 (below) is designed for multicore devices. While the OS has never been resource-heavy, various other hardware improvements (removable MicroSD cards, support for 1280×720 and 1280×768 resolutions, full NFC support) mean that Windows Phone 7 is already at a disadvantage.

Throw in over the air updates and integrated VoIP, and you can see that there are features that depend heavily on hardware that Windows Phone 7 devices just don’t have.

Shared Features

This isn’t to say that the two platforms are very different – Windows Phone 7.8 and Windows Phone 8 get to share a few much-needed features.


The most important shared feature for many will be the new UI settings, which enable users to alter the size of the Start screen tiles. Additionally, photography options are set to be increased, with timers, panorama tools, action shots and group shots all possible. Various Nokia apps set for release across the Windows Phone ecosystem will also be available on Windows Phone 7.8, such as Nokia Play To, Nokia Music, and Nokia Drive – an excellent satellite navigation tool.

However, it isn’t all good news. For instance, apps designed for Windows Phone Apollo (as WP8 is codenamed) will not be made available for Windows Phone 7 devices. While backwards compatibility is not possible, most apps purchased for Windows Phone 7 should run on Windows Phone 8, although some will be unavailable for various reasons.

Windows Phone 8’s Winning Smile

In the end, however, Windows Phone 8 has the advantage. This should come as no surprise – it’s a new platform, a new iteration of the former, and as such supports more hardware technologies.


Secure boot and 128 bit encryption will protect the phones from intrusion – they’ll also make the work of anyone trying to hack the platform Jailbreak-style extremely tough. Remote device management and the ability for corporations and SMEs to add their own hubs will also be restricted to Windows Phone 8. Add to this everything that Windows Phone 7.8 can do plus the ability to take screen captures (at last!) and we’ve got a new mobile platform just waiting to take off.

The results are impressive. Indeed, in the eyes of some commentators, Windows Phone 8 is the platform that Windows Phone 7 should have been.

What About The Future?

With the release of Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 7 users are put on notice by Microsoft. Just as a first generation Android or iPhone won’t really cut it for running modern apps and games, so the devices originally launched with the Windows Phone 7 operating system and hardware are unsuitable for Windows Phone 8.

Windows Phone 7.8 gets around this by offering some features that are shared with Windows Phone 8, but beyond this, the future looks bleak for the platform. Beyond a few bug fixes and low key updates, it seems unlikely that the owners of Windows Phone 7 devices will be able to upgrade their devices again.


Once Windows Phone 7.8 is out there, the smart money – certainly for users in North America and Europe – is on Microsoft all but abandoning the platform (Windows Phone 7.8 is expected to continue as an entry-level platform for low-cost devices, mainly produced by Nokia, such as the Lumia 510). While this might encourage hackers and developers to improve the OS or even find a way to install Android on the devices, for most users grabbing a Windows Phone 8 handset or even jumping to Android or iPhone might be the answer.


A lot has been written about Microsoft’s desertion of Windows Phone 7 – many users are not happy, but ultimately, the change has to be made for the platform to compete…

Make a Decision Based On Your Needs

Of course, we couldn’t encourage anyone to upgrade to Windows Phone 8 unless they were able to do so. Although this isn’t a review, the new version of Microsoft’s mobile platform is certainly worth seeking out in your local mobile phone or electronics store, just so you can get a good glimpse of what it can do. My review of Windows Phone 8 will give you some further background on HP pavilion dv3500 battery.


At the same time, however, if you’re happy with Windows Phone 7.5 and don’t have much need for NFC, integrated Skype, e-wallets, background multitasking or porting of apps to and from Windows 8 (the full version – Windows 8 RT doesn’t support syncing with Windows Phone), then there is little need to update your phone.


Microsoft has already planned a “controlled fragmentation” of the platform to enable Windows Phone 7.8 to carry on for a few years yet in lower spec devices for emerging markets – while future updates seem unlikely, support is expected to continue for a few years yet.

It's been a big year for smartphones—the iPhone 5, the Galaxy S III, the debut of Windows Phone 8—but as always, it's the apps that matter.


Thankfully, 2012 witnessed the arrival of many killer apps for business users, tools that can save time, lower costs, and turbocharrge your overall productivity. Best of all, those that aren't free cost only a few bucks.


Below I've rounded up my picks for the five best business apps of the year—a mixture of gems for Android and iOS alike. These aren't the typical mainstream picks like Evernote and LogMeIn, which, though often invaluable to business users, have been on the scene for ages. No, I've got five lesser-known apps that deserve greater recognition. And that starts right here.


1. CallFlakes (Android)

Think about what you normally do after a phone call. CallFlakes does it for you. This clever ad-supported app swoops in whenever you end a call, offering six handy follow-up options: Text, Reminder, Email, Meeting, Share, and Call. (There's also a Web-search button in case you want to immediately Google something.)

It's literally a one-tap affair to launch any of those functions—incredibly useful for anyone who makes and takes a lot of calls.


2. Glyder (iOS)

Marketing can make or break a small business. With Glyder, you can create and distribute a variety of marketing messages—a daily deal, a coupon, a thank-you note, etc.—across a variety of platforms (email, Facebook, text message, etc.), all with a few taps on your iPhone. The app is incredibly easy to use and a real boon to any on-the-go business owner seeking a quick and effective marketing tool.


3. MailShot (iOS)

It's kind of ridiculous that iOS doesn't let you create email groups. MailShot does. With it you can build mail distribution groups (sales team, marketing department, key clients, etc.) right on your iPhone, then adds those groups to your address book, where they’re accessible from all other apps. It’s even Siri-friendly. The free version limits you to three groups with five recipients each; for all of $3.99, MailShot Pro raises the cap to 100 groups and 100 contacts. That's four bucks very well HP pavilion dv6 extended laptop battery spent.


4. Maluuba: Your Siri Alternative (Android)

It may look like a Windows Phone app, but Maluuba has Apple in its crosshairs—specifically Siri, as evidenced right in its name. This voice-powered helper app that can do everything from checking the weather to scheduling appointments to finding the closest Fedex box. And unlike Siri, it doesn't yammer on and on; it just works. For free.


5. WorkFlowy (iOS)

WorkFlowy is little more than a browser-based outliner, but it's precisely that stripped-down simplicity that makes it such a powerful organization tool. I'll be honest: the WorkFlowy app is barely better than the mobile browser-based version. But it doesn't have to be. However you interact with WorkFlowy on your smartphone, you'll quickly come to find it indispensable.

When upgrading from one iPhone to another, transferring your existing data and settings to your new device is easy. But, when you're faced with the task of moving content from an Android phone to an iPhone, the process can be a bit trickier.

Although you can't transfer some operating system-dependent things\ like text messages and call history, it is possible to move your contacts, files, photos and videos from your Android to your iPhone.

Once you've set up and activated your new iPhone, grab your Android phone and follow this step-by-step guide:

  1. On your Android phone, go to your Contacts. Tap the menu button and tap Import/Export. Then, tap Export to Storage, select the contact data you want to transfer (in most cases, "Phone"), and select OK.

  2. Connect your Android to your PC via USB, and put your phone in Disk Drive mode. Your phone will appear as a drive (or two drives, if you have an SD card) in My Computer or on your Mac desktop.

  3. Create a new folder on your desktop and name it something like "Android data". Now, sift through the files on your Android drive(s) and drag and drop the content you want to transfer to your iPhone. This might include photos, music and videos. Take your time during this process to make sure you don't miss any data, as you might have photos and videos in a few different folders.

    Finally, search for a VCF file and save that file, too. This is where all your contacts are. Drag and drop that folder to your iPhone data folder. You're now ready to transfer the saved data to your iPhone.

  4. Photos and videos: assuming you've already set up and activated your new iPhone, connect it to iTunes. Click on your phone's name in the left sidebar, then go to the Photos tab in the main window. Check "Sync photos". In the drop-down menu, click "Chose folder" and navigate to the Android data folder on your desktop. Your photos will now appear in your iPhone's Photos app.

  5. Music: next, drag the iPhone folder from your desktop over to your iPhone's name in the iTunes sidebar. All of your songs will be transferred to your iPhone. (You can also use this trick to transfer any other music from your desktop with extended life HP 484170-001 battery to your iPhone.) The music can now be found in your iPhone's Music app.

  6. Contacts: first, make sure you've set up your email account on your new iPhone. Then, back on your computer, send yourself an email with the VCF file as an attachment. Open that email on your iPhone and tap the attachment, which is located at the bottom of the message. Then, at the top, tap "Add all contacts". Your contacts will now be saved to your iPhone.
