Samsung CorbyTXT B3210 : Budget Choice

Samsung’s Corby line-up is now popular in the Indian market thanks to a wide line-up of phones with good looks and decent UI all linked together by affordable price-tags. The B3210 CorbyTXT with its full QWERTY keyboard is a Corby phone aimed at users who are more into messaging and don’t want to spend too much.

Since the B3210 is a budget phone,please donot expect plethora of features. It has Bluetooth but doesn’t support Wi-Fi or 3G and doesn’t allow for GPS. It has a ubiquitous microUSB port for charging the phone or connecting it to the PC. A great addition is the 3.5mm jack for headphones which allows you to plug in your favorite pair.

Unlike other Corby phones, the TXT does not have a touchscreen; its display is a 2.2 inch TFT screen capable of displaying a resolution of 220x176 and 256K colors. It only has 50MB of internal memory but supports microSD cards up to 8GB. It also has a 2MP camera with no flash.

Advantage :

1. Budget Phone
2. Ease of use
3. QWERTY Keyboard
4. Good Music Playback


1. Bad screen
2. No WiFi Support

Cost :

Rs. 6, 500 /-

Micromax X360 mobile is priced at a maximum retail price of Rs 5,000 but it would be sold at the market operating price of Rs 3,750 and this is a worth deal.

The key features of the new Micromax X360 are:

* Dual GSM-Dual Standby

Samsung E1107 Crest Solar : Good Choice For Power/Cost Savers

The concept of solar powered phone is not something new,still many people are unaware of solar charged mobile phones. In this point, Samsung had launched the Samsung E1107 which is going to be the first commercially available solar powered phone. The Samsung E1107, known as Solar Guru. The cell phone was launched in somewhere in 3rd quarter of 2009 and is doing good.
 A friend happen to ask me [ December 2009]  " whats your mobile battery life ? " . Well i quoted " As long as it is    charged, it goes good". We then he said " check this..!! no issues with battery and day time charging is at the peak.Goes superb..!! "

Design and Specification :
Samsung E1107 is not the slimmest mobile device and this is precisely due to the solar panel on back panel that add-in little more thickness too the mobile. However, with the weight of only 77 grams makes it very lightweight and easy to tote around. Up front, there is a 1.52-inch CSTN display with a 128 x 128 pixel resolution with 65k colors. Below it is the five way navigation pad and with End, call and Soft keys around it. Moreover, there is a small LED is placed on top for use as a torch.But for the people who have not kept it on during the day,this feature can be USELESS because  led wont lit up at night...LOL :-)

Solar Power : is it worth ?
Well this feature is not really designed at its best, but features a cost saving technique. Tested 5 mins talk time for every hour charged battery.

Although the Samsung E1107 is a low end phone, it is still features Mp3 Ringtones, FM Radio, and game. It stores around 500 items in phone listings. Also,30 missed call lists,called lists and received lists. It doesn't have a card slot to read.Mobile Tracker is another feature of this mobile.

Leaving the solar charging technique and the price,rest feature are not really strong.But defintly a good piece for environment friendly

In India, the phone costs only 2,650/- INR

Save Our Tigers : Take a Step

Sorry folks,this isn't a tech post but something related to social striking.I would call this to be an conditional-expressing" post.Meaning something which makes me to post before its too late.

Hey friends,its time to be aware of the fact that from the times we had many tigers in our country has drastically reduced to FEW in numbers. I was recently happed to see an advertisement on TV "Athithi Dev Bhavo " by aamir khan where he says one superb statement " the growth of income of each of us depends on tourists".

The tourists come to india for luxury,passion and more importantly to love nature and tigers and other animals are very crucial for these and for ecosystem.and if we don't react , it will be counting don to zero very soon.

Personally i have never seen a tiger live but i can sense the need of growth of awareness required to stop this.

I would request every visitor of my blog to post either small link of www.saveoutiger.com or write comments on this dedicated to save tigers initiative by aircel.

How can we help :

1.Make awareness
2.Blog Post,Emails etc.
3.Donate to saveourtigers.com

Dell UltraSharp U2410 - Worth of Try

he Dell UltraSharp U2410 is a 24 inch LCD monitor with an accurate, sharp panel and a wide range of calibration options. It's a good value option for image-intensive work like graphics editing and photography that rely on accurate colours. The price is low compared to the competition in its class. 

The UltraSharp U2410 LCD monitor inherits some design cues from older Dell displays (the well-regarded Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP and the Dell UltraSharp 2405WFP), including a sharp rectangular design and thin, modern-looking bezel. Near the power button on the lower right corner are five touch-sensitive buttons to operate the on-screen display.

It has two DVI ports, D-SUB and DisplayPort – with cables in the box for all three – as well as HDMI, composite and component inputs. There's a 3.5mm output for passing through audio from an HDMI source, but there are no integrated speakers.

Add in the motion-sensing touch controls and Dell's simply superb menu system and you have a fantastic all-round monitor. It's expensive, but if you require colour accuracy at a less-than astronomical price, the UltraSharp U2410 is a good compromise.

AOC V22 LCD - A fine alternative

Hi folks... Sorry for the late post...its been days i have posted in here...but i am back...

This time its a LCD post of a new AOC V22 LCD which is a good alternative and a cost saving piece. Samsung has really bombarded the market with 933 model and believe me its a fine model. 15000 : 1 makes it a fine model.

This particular model has become craze of the market as well.Now lets check out what this particular model has to offer :

The Design : This model is thin and streamlined with classic glossy finish. The depth is about 0.75 and the location of the power button is really cool. It has a silver color ring around it and also the menu panel has 4 way navigation pad.The connection options are single HDMI and VGA for video. But unfortunetly it isn't having DVI and Thus no DVI-HDMI cable as accessory. The brightness is at 280 cd/m2 while the contrast is rated as 100,000 : 1 . The response time is around 2 ms ( G- G ).

The Featured Performance : The luminance is slightly more than my expectations but nothing big.There is some white level clipping seen at the middle of the screen as the back light is not really bright. Colors are vibrant and accurate too.

The Plus : Good Performance for gaming freak people.

The Bad : DVI connection not present and ergonomic features.
