How to change the input language of your keyboard

Now computer systems have almost completely phased out the usage of old typewriters and almost every publishing and documentation task is done on computers now. Doing the documentation task on computers gained massive acceptability because it is very easy to create documents on computers, make the changes, make language changes, change the fonts, and editing the entire document. Computers have proved their worth when it comes to typing and creating documents and this is the work which is done the most on computer systems. By default computers are programmed to work in English, but this can be easily changed and you can make your computer work in your own regional language. It is not all about changing the font of the document but it is about changing the overall language of your computer. Even if you do not have a keyboard of your regional language still it can be done and then all you would need is to mark the keys accordingly on your English QWERTY keyboard.

Below are the steps to change the input language of the keyboard as follows:

Step 1: Open the Control Panel. This can be done by clicking on Start Button and then clicking on Control Panel. If this option is not available then click on Start, then on Run and type the command “Control” and press enter.

Step 2: Once the Control Panel opens look for an icon named Regional and Language. Double click on this icon to open the Regional and Language settings window.

Step 3: In this window click on the Language Tab.

Step 4: Click on the Change Keyboards button and then click on Add

Step 5: Scroll and select the language that you wish to use. Also select what type of keyboard you would be using. If you will be using the US keyboard then check it else put a check in front of your local language keyboard.

Step 6: After making the changes click on OK in all the Windows and exit out of the Control Panel.

The steps given above will change the keyboard language of your computer system. Now if you have a keyboard which has all the characters of your regional language marked on the keys then it is good, but if you are using the same old US English keyboard then you need to mark the keys manually. Changing the language of the keyboard changes the default characters of the keyboard. For example if you make the changes and then press the letter A on the keyboard then it will not type letter A but will type the new character as mapped by the new Language. It is always advised to map and mark the new characters on the keyboard so that it is easier to use.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini X10: Portability that Roars

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini X10 offers the full functionality of an Android phone in a very portable sleek design. Entering a whole new level of portability, Xperia Mini X10 introduces functionality that belies its size. Although some might find the ultra-small design doubtful when it comes to its promised performance, it proves itself a worthy contender compared to full-sized Android Phones.

Specifications

Size: 83 x 50 x 16 mm

Phone memory: Up to 128MB

Processor: 600 MHz Qualcomm MSM7227

Talk time GSM/GPRS: Up to 4 hours

Standby time: GSM/GPRS: Up to 285hrs

Talk time UMTS: Up to 3.5 hours

Standby time: UMTS: Up to 360 hrs

Design

The Xperia Mini X10’s is simplicity personified. Three buttons grace its face: menu, home and back. The power button that doubles as the lock key sits on the top edge. There are also quick-access buttons on its right side for the volume and camera controls. The glossy finish contrasts with the buttons, making it easy to find. At the bottom edge lies the USB connector port for charging and computer syncing. It is covered by a tiny rubber flap that serves as protection against dust build-up and unnecessary wear or damage to the port. Right beside it is the 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Like its predecessor, the Xperia Mini X10 kept the curved design of the back plate. This enables the Android phone to sit naturally in the palm of your hand. Surprisingly though, unlike any other Android phone, the battery cannot be taken out. It is designed to be fixed on the board. The only thing that can be taken out when you open the back cover is your SIM card. Replacing it would warrant an expertise on tinkering with the phone itself. OR if you’re not that confident, you will have to take it to a technician if the battery fails.

At first, you may miss the heft of a regular Android phone. But the 16 mm-thick Xperia Mini X10’s dainty appearance shouldn’t fool you. It may feel a bit delicate in an average male’s hand but it fully makes up for it in killer after killer of features. The offered vivacious colors of black, pearl, white, lime, pink, red and silver add more gives it more energy and feistiness.

Although just like a credit card in size, it can’t fit in your wallet. However, the smallest wardrobe pocket can accommodate this spritely gadget. Although owing it a spot in your not so secure pocket can prove to be a mistake especially if you forget that it’s supposed to be in there somewhere. Even the bulkier iPad and iPhone gets lost if not secured properly.

Interface

Although inspired by its bigger relative, the Xperia X10, the Xperia Mini gets a revamped home screen. There are now scrollable and customizable widgets in its home screen. It can accommodate up to twenty widgets at the same time. Users can now personalize favorite shortcuts at each edge of the 2.5 screen. If that still limits you in some way, pushing the Home button or scrolling down while on the widget screen displays more shortcuts.

With Android 2.2 (Froyo) already out in the market, Xperia Mini leaves some doubt with its utilizing of only the Android 1.6 version. Clearly a later version, don’t let that put a damper on your Android experience. As an Android platform, it still can accommodate installable applications from the Android Market. Just the same as the updated one, albeit running on a much lesser version of the platform. You can customize it all you want.

The multi-delete option comes with a thumbnail view and you can tick items as you go. This not so tedious feature allows you to select and manage your phone content in a not so tedious manner. Knowing exactly what you might be deleting or moving is a feature worthy of applause.

The multi-touch screen also comes with auto-rotate allowing you to easily shift from landscape to portrait mode breezily. Left-handed people might have to re-orient and take a little time with getting the hang of a right-handed person’s device.

Communication

Just like any other smartphone of today, the Xperia Mini X10 comes with the usual features like SMS, MMS and Email capabilities. What is worth noting is the Infinite Button. Users can now choose to follow their contact’s Twitter and Facebook messages with just a click of a button. The built-in Timescape application manages all incoming messages. Navigating through that barrage of information might get a bit confusing at first, though. More so if you have subscribed to multiple tweets from your contacts.

Sadly, you might have to download another email client. Only one email account is allowed with the default email manager. Those who have multiple accounts have to go through the rigors of setting up one account at a time and accessing them. With another email client, you might be able to manage them simultaneously.

Anyway, the Xperia Mini X10 cannot be said to be designed for lengthy emails. It does not come with a full QWERTY keyboard. Instead it uses a T9 keyboard. So you have to tap and tap away on the touchscreen to compose your messages. But that must be the most logical approach to that. After all, using a full QWERTY keyboard on the 2.55 screen will surely be a challenge for those who don’t have small hands.

Entertainment

It comes with a 2GB microSD card that can be upgraded to 16 GB. Enough storage to house the various media you can accumulate while using the built-in 5.0 megapixel camera and more than enough for your music player and video player.

Gravity T Specifications

Compared to the horizontal slider, this one is a vertical version with a large screen.

The display resolution are 240*320 pixel.

Gravity

This is the simplest version of the series that features the same processor and the same internal memory but looks simpler then the other two versions released by Samsung Gravity series. The phone targets normal people though.

Adobe Becomes Part of Apple/Google War

Google, Verizon and Motorola have gone up to the stage on the 23rd of June for announcing next generation of the Droid Smartphone which would be having the hanger on Adobe in tow. The Droid X is also expected to be seen really soon. It has a touch screen which is like the 4G and has a display of 4.3 inches. The camcorder of this is also very powerful and has high definition. The Droid 2 is also expected which is a sequel to the greatly popular original featuring the QWERTY keyboard which slides out. On Thursday it was the turn of Apple when the iPhone 4 hit the stores and the mailboxes throughout the U.S. and four of the other countries.

Not like the Copa Mundial, this cup would not be decided by the mid of July instead the war of the Smartphone have continued for another one or two years, by the time when the conception of the iPhone would have gone completely out of the window. Still, the decision of Google, Verizon and Moto for launching the next Droid on the day which was just before iPhone 4 came to the streets for talking to the stakes in the play for everyone at the table.

Adobe – leading the market

The player in the market is considered to be Adobe. Neither Apple, Google, AT&T nor Verizon is at any place in the market. The mobility division of Motorola was actually given a second chance by the rise of the Android mobile operating system of Google. In spite of failing to turn the triumph of the iconic RAZR into any sustainable strategy which could stay for the long term basis, is now back into the business behind the stable of the Droid. Actually, the plans have been announced recently by Motorola for spinning the handset division off in the cash infused, debt free, stand alone company which is called the Motorola Mobility by the start of the coming year.

Talking about Adobe – Shantanu Narayen, who is the CEO, would be joining the execs from Motorola, Google, and Verizon at the launch of the Droid on the 23rd of June. But usually one would think that Adobe is a software company and what it has to do with the game of the Smartphone. The answer to this question is quite simple and it would move down to the war of Flash and Apple-Google. The difficult answer hinges on the factors as wide ranging as the developer agreements, emerging standards of the web, Google TV and also the war of the Apple and Google.

Apple VS Google

Apple and Google both are moving over the mobile phones as well as the mobile advertising markets and the battle is probably going to extend soon to the sales of the online music and the web enhanced TV also. It is being thought that Adobe is the player or the pawn? Over the previous few months Apple has proclaimed that Flash is a dead technology which has already been replaced by the emerging standards of HTML 5.
