Verizon Wireless® to improve voice quality with 4G

So long as the phone is utilized for the purpose of talking over it, the major requirement of the handset becomes a quality voice service. According to a renowned news channel, Verizon Wireless is about to launch 4G voice services and will offer high definition audio fidelity over the latest 4G LTE network. The company has already launched its network of 4G LTE and will make smartphones available in the market that will be designed to use the LTE network so that quality of voice services improve over other voice service providers to a great extent.

According to one of the spokesperson of the company, Verizon Wireless will be launching the smartphone shortly. The initial phones that will be made available in the market will be using its earlier CDMA network for the purpose of voice calls, but will have the new 4G LTE network for providing fast data services. However, it also needs mention that the 4G LTE network will be available for voice services as well within a very short time. According to the report of the news channel, the voice quality of phone calls are going to improve greatly once the smartphones become available with new 4G LTE network for voice calls. In the initial versions the data services will be really fast and thus the customers will be highly benefited in this front as well.

Among other features of the new smartphones that will be launched by  Verizon Wireless with the 4G LTE network, the most striking part is that the voice services as well as data services will both be available at the same time. This simultaneous availability of the LTE network in voice services as well data services was not present in the earlier CDMA sets of Verizon Wireless. In the recent past, the launch of the new network by the company has given it an edge over most of its rivals as no other service providers have been able to provide both data and voice services of very high quality at the same time through a single network. What follows is that the new smartphones are bound to capture a major part of the market. The 3G services provided by AT&T had so far been the most popular service provider and they even point out in their advertisements that the their service is better than that of Verizon Wireless in the sense that the CDMA network did not have the facility to offer both services at the same time.

Another very significant feature of the smartphones that will use the 4G LTE network and which will be launched shortly is the facility of video chatting. Although the option of video chatting is available on other networks as well, yet the new 4G LTE network’s video chat is bound to be better than the others.

Sprint® unveils Kyocera Echo with dual touch screen

Sprint has launched the Kyocera Echo, the first smartphone with a dual touch-screen, at an event held in New York. The appearance of Kyocera Echo is excellent. Kyocera Echo will be available in the market at a price of approximately 200 dollars along with a two year warranty period. The Kyocera Echo has WVGA touch screens measuring 3.5 inches and it has a pivot hinge which permits one to fix the two displays forming a greater 4.7” display side by side. The Kyocera was developed in about two years and its hardware took more time to complete.

Actually, there are four modes on which one can utilize the Android 2.2 operating system. In general mode, one may utilize the touch-screen smartphone traditionally. The pivot hinge permits one to put the second display below the first, so that one may operate and navigate the handset very much like many current devices of today. In the meanwhile, tablet mode permits one to interact and view apps in both the screens.

The simultaneous task and optimized modes are a little bit advanced. The former helps the single app and allows one to view the main content in one screen, and complementary features of the app and its functionality on second screen. For instance, if one views e-mail, he/she will obtain a view of the inbox in full in one side of screen, and second one will enable display of the full text for a selected message. Another instance is photo gallery. One can obtain a full view of photo on top of screen and thumbnail photo gallery at the bottom. However, the simultaneous task mode is the place where the true attraction of Echo lies. Using this mode, one will be able to perform multifarious tasks as one gets the opportunity for using two apps simultaneously with each being displayed in one of dual touch screens. There will be only seven major apps that are helping simultaneous task modes such as contacts, browser, messaging, e-mail, phone, gallery, and YouTube app which allows one to watch video on top of the screen and lists relevant clips at the bottom. Each will be denoted with a small box of blue-gray type for indicating simultaneous task support. After selecting one of these apps, one may tap both the screens for selecting the second app for displaying in the other screen.
