Samsung Galaxy S – Whole Galaxy in Your Palm

The Android war is heating up. Every phone company is vying for a share in the pie called Android powered smartphones. If HTC was initial leader, now it is the turn of Samsung to challenge them with their Android based touchphones.

The Samsung Galaxy S is Samsung’s fitting reply to the HTC Desire. The Desire has been a success and anyone who wants to dethrone it, has to be something really very good. Can Galaxy mount any challenge to the Desire? Let’s see…

Looks: The Galaxy S is couple of mm wider than HTC Desire and several mm thinner. It is quite light too! It has 2 touch sensitive buttons and 1 physical button below the screen. The screen is humongous. It is 4 inches across which just blows away HTC Desire in this battle of screens. It’s 30% bigger than the iPhone 4 display. The screen is Super AMOLED which means that the screen itself is touch sensitive rather than having a touch sensitive film at the top. This results in a brighter display. A common with phone displays is that under sunlight, visibility is seriously compromised. But, not in Samsung Galaxy S’s case. Super AMOLED means 80% less reflected light.  On direct comparison with HTC Desire the difference is stark. It’s capacitive touchscreen makes touch operations breeze.

Galaxy S runs Android 2.1, so you have access to Android Marketplace which has thousands of apps and best part is that they are free! Pre-installed apps include the Layar Reality Browser, a document editor, the Aldiko ebook reader and the new Social Hub which has been designed from the scratch to integrate all major email providers, IM and social networking services such as Yahoo, MSN, Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. Android is a powerful and intuitive operating system, and Samsung’s implementation works seamlessly. Samsung’s TouchWiz 3.0 interface which sits on the top of Android, is quite similar to HTC Sense interface and can be customized.

Samsung has packed Galaxy S with super-fast 1GHz and has a dedicated GPU. The end result? Super fast user interface and flicker free HD video playback. The phone has a built-in memory of either 8GB or 16GB and can also accept memory cards up to 32GB, so music and movie fans have a lot of storage.

The Galaxy S comes equipped with a 5 megapixel camera with touch autofocus and can also record HD video at 720p resolution. Sadly though, it has no flash.

The music player fantastic. It has a 3.5mm audio jack. Video playback on the Super AMOLED screen is also unbelievable and the Galaxy S has multi-codec support including DivX support.

All connectivity options are on board. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, a 3.5mm audio jack, DLNA support and TV-Out. The 3G connection on the galaxy S supports download speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps and uploads of 5.76 Mbps using HSPA.

The phone has a built-in AGPS with Google Maps pre-installed and providing three different views – real street view, traffic view and satellite view.

It has large battery capacity of 1500 mAh plus the Super AMOLED screen is more energy efficient than a conventional display.

The Galaxy S Samsung’s best phone till date and outperforms HTC Desire in every section. Almost perfect!

What You Need To Know About 800 Telephone Numbers?

800 telephone numbers are toll-free numbers. This means that if the telephone number starts with 800, 888, 877 or 866, you can call such number without being charged for the call. The charge is being shouldered by the party or individual who owns that number. Toll-free numbers can be dialed directly from your personal telephone line, mobile phone or office phone.

Most business establishments use toll-free numbers so that their clients and prospects can reach them without being troubled by additional expenses. This number is particularly common in customer service and telemarketing. Telephone companies provide a way for businesses and customers to have an effective communication.

Besides businesses, even private parties can benefit from toll-free numbers. Parents can subscribe to a toll-free number so their children can still contact them when they are away studying or when they are out of town for whatever reason. With 800 telephone numbers, students can always call home free.

Although the toll free numbers are free codes, they are not interchangeable. This means that a number assigned with a code of 800 cannot be interchanged with 888, 877 or 866 as each number is routed to a specific local telephone number. For example, 1-800-987-6543 is different from 1-888-987-6543.

If you wish to know the toll-free number of a party or business establishment, you can call the toll-free directory assistance in your local area. However, just like all telephone numbers from different networks, the subscriber or owner of the toll-free number reserves the right not to have his number listed on the directory. Hence, you cannot expect that the toll-free you wish to obtain is always available, particularly if it belongs to a private party or person.

If you wish to obtain a toll-free number, you have to reserve for it with entities that are toll-free service providers. They may not necessarily be telephone network companies, as long as they have access to the SMS/800 database. If the number you wish to be your toll-free is not available, you will be assigned with another.

The SMS/800 database contains information about the status of all toll-free numbers registered in your country. The toll-free service providers must be a member of a Responsible Organization or RespOrgs. The SMS/800 database administrator certifies the RespOrgs, and manages the toll-free service. So, if you wish to have your own toll-free number, you only have to contact any RespOrg.

Generally, the RespOrgs are the ones that assign the toll free numbers. But you can always customize the number if you want. The price for customized number is always higher than the ones randomly selected by the RespOrgs.

In customizing an 800 telephone numbers, the most common rule is to spell out your name or your company’s name after the toll-free code. This method of customization is called Vanity. A Vanity number spells out your name or your company’s or any name for that matter. A few examples are 1-800-NEW-HOUSE or 1-877-E-MARKETING. You can also get the Vanity number from any RespOrg.
