Sprint Nextel executives have stepped down from their posts as Clearwire board members, Clearwire said Thursday. The move could clear the way for other investors in Clearwire, which is currently building a nationwide 4G wireless network. Clearwire said today that Sprint CEO Dan Hesse and two other top Sprint executives--Keith Cowan and Steven Elfman--have resigned from Clearwire's board of directors. The company will name temporary members to the board. There are four Clearwire board members Sprint previously appointed who are remaining on the board.
It's a bit of a niche, but disconnecting the pressure-sensitive stylus from its dedicated drawing tablet and enabling use with a more mainstream, general purpose tablet like an iPad is quite liberating for designers and doodlers alike, Wacom, known for its excellent drawing peripherals like the Intuos5, has been strangely slow to jump into this market -- but finally lands with its $99 Intuos Creative Stylus (ICS), The ICS joins products like the Adonit's Jot Touch 4 ($90) the Pogo Connect ($80) and the Hex3 Jaja ($90) with workarounds to give the fundamentally insensitive iPad display pressure-sensitive drawing capabilities (in iphone case 7 plus wallet which stroke width changes in response to changes in stylus pressure), Because of the tablet constraints, the ICS uses a Bluetooth 4 connection like the Jot and the Pogo rather than the electromagnetic resonance technology used in its dedicated input devices -- if you want EMR in a portable tablet you'll need to fork over a lot more dough for Wacom's newly announced Android tablets, the Cintiq Companion and Cintiq Companion Hybrid, Bluetooth 4 limits the stylus compatibility to the iPad 2, current-generation model, and the Mini, The other benefit of EMR is battery-less operation; the ICS incorporates a AAAA battery, slightly smaller than the Pogo and Jaja's AAA design..
Sprint packages the BlackBerry Bold 9650 with a healthy number of accessories, including a travel charger, a USB cable, a 2GB microSD card, a SIM card, a wired stereo headset, a belt holster, and reference material. For more add-ons, please check our cell phone accessories, ringtones, and help page. FeaturesMuch like the design, the RIM BlackBerry Bold 9650 retains a lot of the same features as the Tour, with a couple of exceptions. First, the Bold now has integrated Wi-Fi (802.11b/g), so you don't always have to rely on 3G for data connectivity. The phone offers a number of Wi-Fi options and tools as well, including diagnostics, DNS lookup, ping test utility, WEP encryption, and more. The other difference is that the Bold 9650 offers double the onboard memory of the Tour at 512MB, which gives you more room for apps.
Cingular Wireless already sells BlackBerry and Good devices that use its Mobitex network, which is about half as slow as the Xpress network, Research In Motion says its pagers will soon be able to use cellular networks to wirelessly synchronize data with remote computers, a feature already offered by rival Good, Most BlackBerry pagers will be able to use a iphone case 7 plus wallet cellular connection to wirelessly synchronize the information on the devices with that on a corporate computer network, RIM announced Monday, A representative for the company said BlackBerrys with the feature will be available to customers "soon"--perhaps within a number of weeks--but refused to specify a more exact date..
"We will create in the near future a flagship Sony model that can compete with Apple's iPhone and Samsung's Galaxy S3," said one of Sony's mobile phone bosses. Speaking to the Financial Times in Germany, Sony exec Dennis van Schie also confirmed the company could begin making Windows Phones as well as Android phones, should Windows Phone 8 prove successful enough to bother with. "If it succeeds," says Sony, apparently referring to the work it's already done on developing a Windows Phone, "we won't be caught off-guard."Sony hasn't exactly taken the phone world by storm since ditching long-time partner Ericsson and striking out alone in the phone market. A new line of one-letter Xperia phones led by the Xperia S have been perfectly adequate Android blowers, but when its brief appearance in the latest Bond film Skyfall is the most exciting thing about the line-leading Xperia T, you know something needs to change.
