In order to compete well in the market, Microsoft has introduced a new feature in its Windows Mobile phones. This unexpected edition has been done by adding free turn-by-turn navigation to the Bing app.
Analogous to Google’s plans, Bing will utilize the Bing Maps service and your mobile phone’s internal GPS to find the exact route to your destination, guiding you through voice commands on every step along the way.
Reportedly, this new functionality will be available for all Windows 6.x handsets, which includes the HTC HD2 and Touch Pro 2.
Good news for iPhone lovers, who love to spend endless time playing around with their iPhones. We always want some multitasking for the iPhone and just now, it seems that our wish has become true.
To explain further, multitasking refers to the operating system’s ability to run more than one app at a time allowing you to switch between them whenever you want, just like you can do in Windows or Mac OS.
Currently, the OS on iPhone offers limited multitasking. This means that although you can keep a phone call active while browsing in Safari, but that’s about it. It doesn’t offer much more multitasking.
Samsung is expected to launch its handsets, with a new mobile phone operating system, Bada, by early 2010. The developers will be able to check the software development kit (SDK) in December.
Through Bada, the developers will be able to create applications, which the users can download from Samsung’s centralized Application Store. Moreover, it will also allow the network operators to customize the Samsung phones with their own interface and applications.
The word Bada means "ocean" in Korean, and it is being used to give out the idea of openness and broad horizons.
