Now, the easiest way to see which apps are running is to use the new App Switcher feature – much like what’s included with the new Nokia X2.

You get to the app switcher by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the app switcher icon. Select the app you want to switch to, or tap the X icon to close an app.

Several great Microsoft services now come pre-installed.

Outlook.com, OneDrive and OneNote are all integrated, meaning that everybody now has access to their Outlook email, cloud storage, and really useful note-taking tools.

Outlook.com includes support for multiple Outlook accounts, with push notifications and calendar/contact syncing.

With OneNote Mobile, not only do you have instant access to your Microsoft OneNote 2010 notebooks stored on your OneDrive account, you can also create jottings right from your Nokia X and sync up to 500 of your notes.

The improved Nokia Store makes it easier to search, find and download games or apps onto your Nokia X.

July 21, 2014 7:39 PM | LG | Comments (0)

STYLISH%20LG%20G3.png
 
LG Electronics (LG) today announced the official launch of LG G3 Beat, a mid-tier variant of LG’s highly acclaimed LG G3 smartphone. The LG G3 Beat delivers a similar premium user experience, sophisticated Floating Arc metallic design and fast Laser Auto Focus technology featured in the G3 but in a more compact package dominated by a 5.0-inch thin-bezel display, setting it a class above other similarly priced mid-tier devices.

The LG G3 Beat was developed to address the growing low- to mid-tier segment of smartphone customers who want a great device that’s more compact but still powerful enough to run the most popular apps. With the fast pace of technology in the wireless industry, it’s now more possible than ever to offer a smartphone that does all this but at a lower price point than was previously possible. LG G3 Beat retains the best features and functions of the G3, delivering its values without compromising usability.

Proving that less can be more, the LG G3 Beat comes with a largest-in-class 5.0-inch HD IPS display with a screen-to-body ratio of 74.1 percent, the highest in the mid-tier smartphone segment. The LG G3 Beat offers impressively thin bezels and a robust 2,540mAh battery. The LG G3 Beat features the Floating Arc Design first unveiled on the LG G3, boasting smooth curved sides and gradually tapered edges for the ultimate comfort in grip and feel.

“Smartphone manufacturers cannot ignore this growing segment of consumers who want the best balance of looks, features, performance and, of course, price,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The LG G3 Beat represents our commitment to the mid-tier smartphone market that demands mature technology, proven branding, great innovation and attractive price, all in a single device.”

AT&T Toggle Enhancements Deliver More Flexibility and Security for Businesses

July 8, 2014 8:43 PM | AT&T | Comments (0)

ATT%20Toggle.PNG
AT&T is making it easy for workers to carry just one smartphone. New enhancements to AT&T Toggle® give network administrators more control, employees more flexibility and organizations more security when preparing for a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environment.

With the latest additions to AT&T Toggle, it’s even easier for administrators to manage their mobile environment with an improved user experience and new applications in the AT&T Toggle App Ecosystem. AT&T Toggle customers also benefit from AT&T Toggle Data packages available for use with AT&T Mobile Share and Mobile Share Value plans.

According to Gartner, “by 2020, 85% of organizations will adopt BYOD in some form.”1 Many employees prefer the ease of using their preferred device for both personal and professional use. One example of this is SleepMed, Inc., the largest private sleep diagnostics provider and the largest ambulatory EEG provider in the nation. Like many healthcare institutions, SleepMed, Inc. is moving to BYOD to reduce costs and increase productivity and convenience. The company is providing AT&T Toggle to its 1,000 SleepMed employees and has plans to expand to the 8,000 physicians in its network to meet a demand for smart connectivity.

“Using AT&T Toggle will allow our community to use their personal devices for work without compromising security – which is of the utmost importance in the healthcare industry. Our staff will be more mobile and connected,” said Sean Heyniger, chief executive officer, SleepMed, Inc. “As a result, they can improve workflow, and ultimately, patient experience and outcomes.”

ISIS Changing Name

July 8, 2014 8:39 PM | Interesting | Comments (0)

ISIS is changing its name because of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria which is also referred to as ISIS.  The following is from the CEO of ISIS:

"From our inception, our vision has been simple: Use the power of the mobile phone to help consumers find a safer and better way to shop, pay and save.

Four years ago, we went in search of a brand that could embody this vision. We wanted a name that brought to life our company and our values. Above all, we wanted a brand that captured the simplicity of our mobile wallet experience. We chose Isis.

Recently, we have observed with growing concern a militant group whose name, when translated into English, is Islamic State of Iraq and Syria – often referenced by the acronym ISIS.

The ISIS militant group has been linked to sectarian violence against civilians and government forces in Iraq and Syria.

June 30, 2014 10:20 PM | Smartphone | Comments (0)

SGP Technologies SA, the Switzerland-based joint venture of Silent Circle and Geeksphone behind Blackphone, today announced that Blackphone handsets have started shipping to the device's first pre-order customers. SGP Technologies formally launched Blackphone earlier this year at Mobile World Congress (MWC). There is overwhelming demand for the phone's focus on user privacy and the unmatched array of integrated features for private communications, browsing, and cloud storage that make Blackphone a category-defining leader in privacy phones. Most recently, MIT Technology Review recognized Blackphone on its prestigious list of the "10 Breakthrough Technologies" of 2014. In addition, Blackphone has won two other awards since its media launch: "The 10 Best Products at MWC 2014" and 2014 Red Herring Europe Top 100 Winner.

"We are excited to achieve this key milestone on schedule and ship a remarkable device to customers that is the result of an unprecedented combination of privacy and mobile innovations and visionaries," said Toby Weir-Jones, CEO of SGP Technologies. "Blackphone's arrival puts mobile privacy directly in the hands of professionals and consumers everywhere. In a world where devices and apps increasingly offer features only in return for users' personal or sensitive information, the pent-up demand for Blackphone shows there is strong, international demand for our brand's devices and services that stand apart by placing privacy before all else."

Blackphone is the world's first smartphone built from the ground up to maximize user privacy. Blackphone's security-enhanced operating system, PrivatOS, built on Android™ KitKat, provides users protection and control over security issues without the usual compromises.

OneDrive Now Offering 15 GB Free for Everyone, 1 TB for Office 365 Subscribers

June 23, 2014 9:53 PM | Microsoft | Comments (0)

1TB_OneDrive_O365.png
"With OneDrive, we want to give you one place for all of your stuff: your photos, videos, documents and other files. Of course, to do this, we need to make sure you actually have enough storage space for everything, particularly given that the amount of content everyone has is growing by leaps and bounds.

It’s also clear that you want more than just the ability to store your stuff in the cloud. You want to be able to share it, to collaborate on it, and so much more. The landscape is changing to the point that we believe it’s no longer enough to provide only cloud storage — that’s table stakes. We want to provide a complete experience that brings in the power of Office and lets you do more with everything you put in your OneDrive — whether it’s sharing your favorite photos with the people you care about in one simple click or working together in real time on an important project.

With this in mind, today we are announcing the following:

1. OneDrive will come with 15 GB for free (up from 7 GB)

Our data tells us that 3 out of 4 people have less than 15 GB of files stored on their PC. Factoring in what they may also have stored on other devices, we believe providing 15 GB for free right out of the gate – with no hoops to jump through – will make it much easier for people to have their documents, videos, and photos available in one place.

2. All versions of Office 365 will come with 1 TB of OneDrive storage

Soon you will get 1 TB of OneDrive with your subscription to Office 365. This means you will get the power of the world’s most popular productivity suite, Office, along with apps for your laptop, smartphone, and tablet, plus an enormous amount of storage, for an unbelievably low price.
