Windows Phone on Your iPhone

if you are eager to see how Windows Phone feels? Microsoft has just made it easy for you. They released a new HTML 5 website that allows iPhone and Android users to get a taste of the Windows Phone 7, Mango 7.5 operating system.

Browse to the webpage on your mobile device to try it out right away. To enjoy full screen experience, you can save the page to your home screen by clicking on the bookmark button.

The demo gives a comprehensive look at some features you find in Windows Phone with a blue dot to guide you around the operating system.

Ironically, the demo doesn’t work in Windows Phone’s own browser. I guess it doesn’t really have to, but funny none the less.

Google and Samsung Delay Nexus Prime Launch Due to Steve Jobs Mourning

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Android, Apple, blog, Gadgets, google, iPhone, Mobile, News, Samsung, Steve Jobs

Google and Samsung announce that the Galaxy Nexus, a.k.a the Nexus Prime, will not launch at the Mobile Unpacked conference October 12 next Wednesday, as expected and teased.

Google and Samsung “just felt it was the wrong time to hold a launch event, as the world continues mourning Jobs”:

The decision to postpone things was made late last night at the top levels of both companies, sources said, with Jobs’ death being the reason. There are no delays with the product itself, sources insisted.

Samsung and Google later updated their original press statement, which now reads:

We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing.

They are likely to make an announcement on the launch late next week.  The new Google phone is built by Samsung and is rumored to have a 4.65-inch, 720P display with dual core 1.5GHz Samsung processor, NFC, 1GB of RAM and runs over Android Ice Cream Sandwich. It will likely be one of the stronger competitors for iPhone 4S.

LinkedIn Launches Updated iPhone & Android Apps, New HTML 5 Mobile Site

Written by Gradly on . Posted in Android, blog, Download, iPhone, Mobile, News, Social Networks

LinkedIn has announced a new HTML 5 optimized page for mobile browsers and updated iPhone and Android apps with 2-10X speed increases.

For the first time, we’ll be providing that experience not only in our iPhone and Android applications, but also in a brand new HTML5 experience for use in any modern mobile web browser.
  • Faster

The new mobile apps are between two and ten times faster across all features, ranging from search to reading update stream.

  • Simpler

The App completely re-organized around 4 key areas:

  • Updates: View updates from your network and top news from LinkedIn Today
  • Inbox: You can view your invitations and messages in one place
  • You: Access your profile, connections, share updates, and even more in the future
  • Groups & More: Browse and interact with your groups, as well as build your network through our People You May Know feature

This not only makes it easier for members to accomplish tasks easily, but also makes it more intuitive to find what they are looking for when they download the app for the first time.

  • Better

The other big change that we’ve implemented based on user feedback is that the mobile app experience now starts with the Update stream, one of the most frequently used areas of the current mobile app. We want to help our members be great at what they do and one way to do that is to help them stay up-to-date on news and information from their network, company, and industry that they can glean from their updates stream.
