Nokia N900 vs iphone 3G vs BlackBerry Tour, which is more powerful?

Most friends often focus the mobile phone will find a rule that at the end of every season, each big firms will have come up with their own masters, for the New Year gift, of course, the real purpose for the market began to do next year. And the most recent consumer can call the brunt of joy, when the N900 Nokia. As a new phone using Maemo 5 system platform, Nokia N900 listing bespeak the mobile operating system war will start in the future. This is why Nokia will launch new touch system after Nokia has just launched S60 V5 system for only one year. Now let’s have a close look at the new Nokia N900: What are the new Nokia main features compare with the iPhone 3G S and Blackberry Tour?
Display
iPhone 3GS: Dimensions (115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm), large (3.5 inch diagonal), weight(135g), high-resolution (480x320 screen), multi-touch display;
Blackberry Tour: Dimensions (112 x 62 x 14.2 mm), 480 x 360 pixels, weight (130g), Full QWERTY keyboard, Trackball navigation, Wallpapers;
Nokia N900: Dimensions (110.9 × 59.8 × 18 mm), weight (181g), full qwerty sliding keyboard ,WVGA (800x480) touch display, not support multi-touch display;
Conclusion: Tie. Each phone has its own unique design essence and it is more of a personal preference which one you would like. However, the N900 is the largest size and the heaviest phone.

Memory capacity
iPhone 3GS : There are two models with 32GB and 16GB capacity of internal memory. No Card Slot. RAM capacity is 256 MB.
Blackberry Tour: It has an internal memory of 256MB and External Micro SD cards are supported up to 8 GB.
Nokia N900: It has an internal memory of 32GB and is expandable with a 16GB MicroSD Card to make it a total of 48GB. The RAM and ROM capacity respectively is 256 MB and 768MB.
Conclusion: The iPhone has enough memory to store all your favorite music and videos but N900 even exceeds that limit with its whopping total of 48GB. And the capacity of Blackberry, in contrast, is smallest.

Application Availability
iPhone 3GS : No comparison is complete without a mention of Apple’s App Store. iPhone is the easiest platform to develop application for. This is why there are thousands of developers developing millions of apps for the iPhone.
Blackberry Tour: Developers of Blackberry Applications use outdated tools that don’t give them enough access to the Core APIs on Blackberry Handsets. But there are some apps that are very useful to the Blackberry users.
Nokia N900: The N900 comes with preloaded Ovi Store to easily pick up any apps. You can also pick up any programs from wherever you like online unlike iPhone which lets you choose apps only from Apple’s own app store. And what I do know is that the Maemo community is very active.
Conclusion: Though the Apple is not open like Nokia but still the amount of apps that are available for iPhone makes it a winner in this category.

Multimedia
iPhone 3GS: It has a 3.15 MP Camera with autofocus, touchfocus and geotagging facility. It can capture videos at VGA resolution 30 fps, although there is no flash. It has build-in multimedia player and supports: H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48 kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats. There’s no doubt that iPhone is wonderful music mobile phone.
Blackberry Tour: It has a 3.15 MP Camera with autofocus, touchfocus and it has LED flash. Another, it also has media player: MP3 / WMA / AAC+ and video player: MPEG4 / WMV / H.263 / H.264, etc.
Nokia N900: It features a 5 MP camera labeled with Carl Zeiss lens. It also packs dual LEDs flash, but don’t expect miracles when taking photos in dark restaurants and bars. By default, the N900 takes 3.5mp photos. And its Video capture is done in 848x480 pixels (3.4Mbps, 22.3fps, AAC mono 48 kHz). The Nokia N900 is capable of playing DVD-resolution videos. The real issue is to find digital video files that have been properly sized and compressed to take advantage of the device's screen and decoding capabilities. Video playback formats: Video playback file formats: .mp4, .avi, .wmv, .3gp; codecs: H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, WMV, and H.263. Video streaming formats: H.264, MPEG-4, Xvid, WMV, H.263 in .avi, .mp4, .wmv, .asf and .3gp containers.
What if you have large music or video collections you want to carry around with you on your mobile? I have got third part software to do this admire job: use Nidesoft DVD Ripper to rip dvd to your mobile phone’s compatible formats, just follow below step by step guide.
Firstly, download this software from: http://www.nidesoft.com/downloads/dvd-ripper.exe
Install and run it!
Step 1: Insert the DVD disc into the DVD Drive.
Click the Open DVD button, browse your computer, and find the DVD folder of the movie. (It is not only load DVD disc, but also could open a disk backup’s directory.)
Step 2: Click the "profile" button and select the format for your player.
Step 3: Click the "convert" button. Please wait before the conversion succeeds!
Now, I could enjoy the videos with any other player. In addition, you may also use Nidesoft Video Converter which could convert video or audio files between all popular formats. It can help us to convert video formats for players. Both softwares are good assistant for Smartphone.
Conclusion: The Nokia N900’s camera beats all others with its feature as well as image quality. But as for media player, Nokia N900 and iPhone 3GS are both good!

Overall
iPhone 3GS : The iPhone is a blockbuster phone that has won many hearts. After some of refinements the iPhone 3GS model seems to remove all the flaws that it had in the previous models. Now it stands as an irresistible champion.
Blackberry Tour: Blackberry is always the first choice for the business users and the Blackberry Bold is the best BlackBerry phone ever made. It is also an unquestionable choice for a corporate person.
Nokia N900: The Nokia N900 is currently the best smartphone that Nokia has ever produced and I'll call it a smartphone even if the company brands it as an "Internet tablet with phone functions". As a voice device, the Nokia N900 does very well, and as a communication tool, it is very good too. With Maemo, Nokia's smartphone future seems a lot brighter than it is with Symbian OS, but despite the obvious potential, the number (and quality) of applications is still uncertain right now.
Conclusion: At the end of the day all of the third phones are tough competitors and it is hard to decide which one is the best. None of the phones can be neglected for their shortcomings because they have some features that outdoes others in some respects. But, the N900 faces stiff competition from the iPhone 3GS and the Blackberry Tour, just to name the obvious ones. It might have a "features" advantage, which is great, but I wonder if "technical coolness" will convert into actual sales. My personal take is that the 3GS will still be the most desired phone, with the Blackberry fast becoming second in line. If Nokia wants to create a great smartphone eco-system, it needs to have a strong user base (in that space), and to achieve that, it needs sexier phone designs, there's no way around it. At last, I wish Nokia will have good sales.

Android or Windows Mobile: which is smarter to enjoy DVD and Video on your LG phone?

With the competition of mobile market becoming more and more intense, most of big mobile phone companies constantly introduce new products. After Motorola’s Droid, Sony Ericsson's Xperia X3 and Samsung Galaxy I7500, LG Company finally announced its first Android mobile phone – GW620 and the GM730e using the latest Windows Mobile operating system. This GW620 mobile phone has been launched in Canada, and renamed LG Eve. Basically an evolution of LG's QWERTY messaging phones, the GW620 looks a little bit like a slimmed down version of Motorola's Dext phone, with similar functionality too. Compare with other smart phones, the GM730e with six lively and lovely intelligent elves will be formally listed. So the netizens are full curious with the six cute "elves" and expectative in this LG GM730e coming. Now I have a simple summary about them. Hope it could provide some useful information to LG mobile lovers.
GW620
The phone is slim to hold in the hand, with a full slide out QWERTY keyboard. A 5MP camera sits on the back (with single LED flash), with the unit coming in with dimensions of 106 x 55 x 12 mm and 3-inch screen. Behind the slide out section, there's an opening for a microSD card, and the up/down rocker switch too, with the microUSB and camera shutter buttons hidden around the edge for good measure too. It fits nicely in the hand when in portrait mode - but the bad news is the screen is only resistive, meaning that scrolling and tapping our way through was a lot less intuitive that other Android phones.
Button wise - with a menu, back and terminate button the only options to play with. The interface is an odd fusion between LG's S-Class and the vanilla Android system. The same S-Class options are employed on the front home screen as well - instead of scrolling left and right to access new screens, you now get that 'spinning' cube interface for each new set of icons, which is a little cumbersome. Another nice touch is the presence of Facebook and Twitter baked right into the handset - send messages from your social networks right from the phone, something that's becoming increasingly popular on today's handsets (especially those based on Android).
Media is laid out in a similar way to Motorola's Dext phone as well - in fact it's identical, so we're wondering if this is some kind of interface buried deep within Android that only Motorola and LG have managed to unearth.

GM730e
GM 730e unlike traditional smart phone inflexible and complicated, it is more convenient and interesting. But bringing this revolutionary change lies in its S-Class 3D user interface of LG originate. Its relationship with Windows Mobile operating system is equivalent to the "skin" and "muscles". With the help of S-Class 3D interface, the function of Windows Mobile operating system is strong and optimization, even without any operating experience of the users can quickly learn to use. Easily dissolve the problem like the initial users "I don't know how to delete the messages".
As a revolutionary product, GM730e appearance is so stylized and conspicuous. Its fuselage size is 109.8 x 56.5 x 11.9 mm, airframe small and thin, extremely fashionable feeling. 3 inches WQVGA resolution (240 * 400 pixels) screen, giving users’ larger space, while LG also increased S-Class 3D interface Windows Mobile system menu name, promoted the accuracy of the fingers. In order to allow users to feel better convenience of GM730e experience and let S-Class 3D interface with Windows Mobile fusion more perfect, LG for GM730e made excellent hardware platform, the central processor of 528 MHZ supports accelerated 3D graphics functions, not only make 3D interface more fluent, but also maintain the speed of multitasking quick reaction. Windows Mobile system itself entertainment function is strong enough, but GM730e also equipped with 500 million pixels and high-definition camera, support auto-focus and shooting night function etc. It also provides GPS navigation software, built-in national maps and various kinds of travel interest, bringing convenient and reliable positioning navigation and experience for customers.

Both are good mobile phone. In this era of music and movie popular, people not only care phone’s hardware, but also has more attention on its multimedia function. Both new LG phones have a 5MP camera to be able to shoot video! It supports single LED flash, auto-focus, auto-white balance and auto-exposure, build-in media player. But they are different in supporting video and audio formats. GW620, support video format: WMV、MPEG4、H.264、ASF and 3GP, etc and audio format: MP3、AAC、WMA、WAV, etc. And GM730e, support video format: MP4、WMV and 3GP, etc and audio format: MP3、AAC、AAC+、E-AAC+、AMR、WMA and WAV, etc. If you haven’t MP4 or WMV videos on your computer, you may use Nidesoft DVD to LG Converter to convert DVD files into LG compatible formats or use Nidesoft LG video converter to convert all other video files into LG, just follow the step by step guide.
Step 1: Install and run Nidesoft LG Video Converter. Click “Add File” button to import your video from your computer.
Step 2: Click the “Format” drop-down list to select the right format for your Sony player.
Step 3: Click the “Convert” button and start the conversion. The conversion will be finished in a short time and then you may enjoy videos.
In addition to the above model, both software could also support various types of LG phones such as: LG KP500, LG GT540, LG KF740, LG GD510, and LG GD510, LG KC910,etc. It is not hard to think that both are essential auxiliary software to LG mobile phone users.

With the development of technology, these mobile phone hardware and software developed quickly. It's important that Android is to go from geeky to mainstream. This has greatly improved our life. Enjoy music anytime and anywhere makes our life more colorful and wonderful. Let’s just enjoy our lives, enjoy our days!

Enjoy DVD and video with your new Motorola mobile phone: CLIQ, Droid and so on

For the declining aristocracy MOTOROLA, any small profit has belongs to rare good. So when the company recently posted surprise third-quarter profits, Motorola stuffs are filled with happy. Namely the MOTOROLA finally successfully achieved the quarter profit. MOTOROLA has revealed the company is expected to launch less mobile phone in the fourth quarter of the year, this basically to get rid of some "cannot profit" failure. So, armed with Cliq, Droid and the MotoBlur interface, it just might be a new day for Motorola.
The Droid phone, codenamed Sholes — named for the inventor of the typewriter — was expected to arrive at Verizon this month, and now has become the focus of attention. Meanwhile T-Mobile is offering Motorola’s CLIQ, an Android-based, MOTOBLUR-running, physical keyboard phone. It is available now for $199 (for current T-Mobile customers).
What are the main characteristics between T-Mobile’s CLIQ and Verizon’s Droid?
CLIQ
The Motorola Cliq on T-Mobile (specs) is available now through T-Mobile. It’s a smaller phone with a 3.1-inch 320-by-480-pixel capacitive touch display, a 5-megapixel camera and 3.5-mm headphone jack. It uses a Qualcomm 528MHz MSM 7201A ARM processor, similar to current Android phones — and runs on T-Mobile’s network. Beyond the basics, you'll have 802.11b Wi-Fi, USB mass storage, Google voice search, Google Talk, instant messaging, visual voice mail, stereo Bluetooth, PC syncing, and speaker-independent voice dialing. The Cliq also comes integrated with news and weather feeds, and apps from Shazam and Imeem Mobile.
The whole CLIQ keyboard of each key is designed large and the central uplift that will bring comfort for the user input. Keyboard direction key and track the ball seemed quite suitable for playing the game. CLIQ MOTOROLA phone with the mainstream of 3.5 millimeter headphone jacks, although unclearly know how its built-in memory, but this phone support microSD card, topped the 32GB storage space, can hold thousands of song or several films.

Droid
The Motorola Droid/Sholes on Verizon (specs), reportedly runs Google’s Android 2.0 operating system and features a metal chassis, large 3.7-inch capacitive display (854 by 480 pixels); 5-megapixel camera with flash, autofocus and video recorder; GPS; Wi-Fi; Bluetooth 2.0; and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It uses a Texas Instruments OMAP3430 processor, the same processor as the Palm Pre. The OMAP3430 features a 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 + PowerVR SGX 530 GPU + 430MHz C64x+ DSP + ISP (Image Signal Processor).
Although with competition for iPhone as slogan is deemed to speculation, but in my mind, MOTOROLA Droid both in appearance and functional configuration is first-rate, which are in the fuselage thickness, the processor, operating systems, video screen, filming, etc, this machine has the strength of sweeping the Android mobile phone.

So I think both mobile phones are good! With the functions of mobile are more and more powerful. The selection criteria for mobile phones are also different. As for me, I like watching movie and listening to music on phone, so I have a more attention on this aspect. Both these Moto phones are built-in media player. In CLIQ, I’ll find album art, playlists, shuffle, repeat, and an airplane mode for in-flight media use. The interface is simple, but easy to navigate and the player supports several file formats, such as: video formats: H.264, H.263, MPEG 4, YouTube, MPEG 4, 3GP and audio formats: AAC, MP3, WAV, MIDI, AMR NB and AAC+. For Droid, there aren't any major enhancements to the player in terms of interface or functionality, which is too bad. You still get support for MP3, AAC, AMR-NB, WAV, MIDI (to name a few), and Windows Media Audio 9 formats and the player includes shuffle, repeat, and playlist creation. You can advance and revisit previous tracks by tapping the forward and back buttons or you can swipe the album covers using the touch screen. They are good Multimedia phone, but only one, they could support all of video or audio formats. So I search it On Google and I find a good assistant for Motorola phone – Nidesoft Motorola Video Converter which could help to convert your video files to MP4, AVI, WMV, MP3 and play on Motorola phone easily. Below I’ll share you how to use it!
Firstly, download this software and install it.
Step 1: Launch the program and Click "Add File" button to load source video files to be converted
Step 2: make settings: click “format” drop list to select “Motorola MPEG-4 Video (*.mp4)” as output video format. Set your video size and quality under the preview window.
Step 3: Click "Convert" button to start to convert video format.
After the file is converted, just transfer the file to the videos folder on your Motorola and enjoy your newly created video. Another, I know Nidesoft DVD to Motorola Converter could rip DVD to Motorola phone video and music: 3GP, AVI, WMV, MP4, WMA etc. So, it is not a problem to watch your favorite DVD on mobile phone. I think these two Nidesoft software are necessary additional software for MOTOROLA mobile phone users.

Although the shell is different, but Motorola Droid and apple iPhone internal is very similar. And compared the before mobile phones using Android operation system, the Droid had a great performance, application and the speed of opening menu, scrolling list and switching the screen goes really fast. Some analysts believe the Droid is the best of MOTOROLA phone since 2005 and Cliq is the first step of MOTOROLA mobile department to turnaround.
For MOTOROLA, the success of publishing two mobile phone, not only indicates the formerly overlord comeback, and for users to regain their confidence has also played a very positive role. Next, let’s us look forward to Motorola numerous sales! Wish Moto good luck!

Today is for everyone to collect three typical phones of the Android phone system, if you are focused on a new system, so might as well see below, which can allure you?Sony Ericsson's Android-Based Xperia X3
Relative to the Sony Ericsson X2, we pay more attention to the next paragraph - Sony Ericsson Smartphone X3 first using Android system smart phone in Sony Ericsson group. At times, we finally got similar official news, this high hardware configuration Smartphone will officially released in November this year.
According to unconfirmed reports, this Smartphone will have a tablet shape dominated by a 4-inch, 800-by-400-pixel touch screen. It will reportedly run the Android OS on a 1 GHz processor Snapdragon processor. Rather than use Google's standard user interface, Sony Ericsson has created a proprietary one for this device that emphasizes social networking (see here). One of the highlights of the X3 will apparently be its 8 megapixel camera with flash and support for VGA (640 x 480 pixels) video recording at 30 fps. This will offer face and smile detection, as well as image stabilization. It will allegedly be a quad-band (850/900/1800/1900) GSM phone with dual-band (900/2100) 3G: 10 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA. Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi g will also be included. In addition, it comes with built in music player. This music player is expected to be simple to use and manage. The music files can be traced according to the name of the song, album, artist or genre. As no proper information is available on the equalizer, we have to wait and watch what the sound control feature would be like. The music player is capable of playing music files based on MP3, AAC and e-AAC+ formats. Music can be enjoyed with wireless stereo Bluetooth also.

Samsung Galaxy I7500

Samsung's new i7500 Galaxy makes it the first manufacturer after HTC to enter the Android game and it does so with a fairly feature-rich phone. The Samsung i7500 fuselage, using only 11.9 millimeters thickness of design, equipped with a straight HVGA 3.2-inch 480 x 320 level of resolution touchscreen, built-in 500 pixel camera support autofocus, equipped with LED flashlight and using the high MSM7200A CPU, 8G memory.
The Samsung i7500 interface is pretty much the standard Android 1.5 OS platform, with very little in the way of customization. It equipped with 350 mm stereo headphone jacks, battery capacity for 1500mAh, support the global positioning system (GPS), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and all services, including Google search, Google maps, Gmail, Google calendar, YouTube and integrated GPS function of Google Talk. The video player on the Samsung i7500 Galaxy is of decent quality, while not bringing extra functionality (much like the music player). Videos are organized the same way as pictures in the gallery, and the default view makes it hard to search for the video you're looking for. However, there's also a dedicated video viewer as well, with the videos listed by name. It support with video format: MPEG4, h. 263, h.264 and audio formats: MP3, WMV, AAC, AAC +, e AAC +, WMA, RA.

Motorola DROID

As time approaches, the “Driod” on the operators of Verizon Wireless official web page will be officially released in the near future. But recently, it was announced that Motorola Sholes will launch with the newest Android2.0 system, for this machine attracting more attention.
The screen on the DROID is a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen -- a full glass display with a WVGA resolution clocking in at a handsome 480 x 854 full QWERTY keyboard. The DROID will be launched by the introduction of dedicated, support and 1XEV CDMA2000 1X CDMA network - A blinding Rev, this also makes this phone become the first CDMA mobile phone of carrying Android system. And it supports A-GPS navigation, Wi-Fi, USB2.0, E-mail, HTML web browsing and send out Google services, etc. Meanwhile This phone will be equipped with 3.5 millimeter earphone interface and stereo headset function, packing a 550MHz OMAP3 CPU, dedicated graphics processor, 512MB of ROM, 256 of RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, a digital compass, and accelerometer. Another, Motorola has smartly outfitted the DROID with a 5 megapixel camera coupled with an LED flash. Video, on the other hand, was somewhat of a pleasant surprise. The DROID is capable of shooting at a 720 x 480 resolution, will support AMR-NB/WB, MP3, PCM/WAV, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA and mpeg-4, H263 H264, video files, WMV formats.

All of these three phones are excellent smartphone. Here I should explain my smartphone requirements. I’m looking for a device to serve as my personal telephone, media player, mini computer and business assistant. For personal telephone, it is used for daily contact, to make calls and receive calls. All of these were easy to use and very convenient to dial a number. But if it is possible to watch dvds in these phones? I search this question on Google. And I find a good software to solve this problem – Nidesoft DVD Ripper which could rip DVD movies to most popular formats easily and quickly, such as: Rip DVD to MP4, 3GP, iPod/PSP/Zune, MOV, WMV, AVI, etc which these phone supports formats. Now I have tried it.

For Blackberry lovers, this month is very exciting month. Research in Motion (RIM) is launching two new handset very soon - the Blackberry Strom and Blackberry Bold 9700 . Both are aimed at different markets and are very much improved over their predecessors. The Blackberry Storm 2 as we know is the second-generation Storm handset and comes with BBM 5.0 and an improved touch-sensitive screen, much better than the original Storm. And some of the features of the Blackberry 9700 are much the same as the Storm 2, 3.2-megapixel camera, 3G support and Wi-Fi. The difference end there, as the Bold 2 is not a touch screen and is aimed at a different user, as the handset is more for business use. People can’t wait for them coming. Now, Verizon has confirmed that the Blackberry Storm 2 has been headed to the carrier on October 28th. But it is also a secret which date the Blackberry 9700 will be published. In this article I have summarized both of them devices’ features and what are their relative and essential programs. Blackberry Strom2

Meanwhile, I find the Blackberry could not support all of video or audio files such as AVI file, FLV file and so on. So I search this problem on the Google and find powerful software to let me enjoy wonderful experience with Blackberry Phone – Nidesoft Blackberry Video Converter. It could convert video and audio files to your Blackberry movie and music format.

Zune HD vs. iPod Touch: which is better choice?

The history of Zune versus iPod Prizefights is long and bloody, filled with enough cutting criticism to send devout fans on both sides of the ring into fits. Now iPod and Zune Prizefight than ever more fiercely with Microsoft introduced Zune HD on September 15. Compared with the iPod Touch, Zune HD has what characteristics and what different advantages, has become the most heated discussion at the topic. Zune HD is a platform without a purpose. It's a single device in a multipurpose world. Zune HD gamed iPod Touch, with better design, better hardware components, more appropriate size and outstanding digital content consumption experience. It’s a brief summary, let’s go on!

Zune HD’s main features:
· large screen size (3.3 inches), lightweight (2.6 ounces), High-resolution (480*272 pixels), beautiful (Platinum, Black, Red, Green, Blue), large capacity (16GB/32GB), Multi-Touch;
· Battery life ups to 33 hours for music and 8.5 hours for video;
· Glass-covered full-color OLED display;
· ARM 800 MHZ CPU· HD radio tuner
· Buy, stream, and update your music—and download free games—wirelessly via a wi-fi connection.
· Surf the web anytime, including tap-to-zoom technology, built-in accelerometer, and touchscreen QWERTY keyboard.
· Support 720p HD movies, TV shows, and videos in high definition on your HDTV through the Zune HD AV Dock (sold separately).
· Quickplay gives instant access to your stuff with shortcuts to favorites, recently downloaded or played music, videos, and more.
Compared with iPod Touch, although the Zune HD screen measures a slightly smaller 3.3 inches diagonally, it's uses cutting edge OLED technology, which delivers brightness and contrast unlike anything you can find in a LCD which iPod Touch applies. And slight another three hours of music may look, the extra 2.5 hours of video stands out to us as a significant advantage.(iPod Touch ups to 30 hours for music and 6 hours for video).
Besides hardware, what differences in other aspects?

For HD Radio

Zune marketing continues to highlight the Zune HD's radio-tuning ability (which they've had since the original Zune) as its break-out functionality over the non-radio iPod. The internal tuner has gotten a little cooler now with HD radio and a feature that lets users "tag" the song playing, so that they can easily buy it later, which is neat.

Both of them are heavyweight media player for videos, audios and pictures. But they are different in many details.

Zune HD supports video formats: WMV, HD WMV, MPEG-4, H.264, DVR-MS and HD MPEG-4. audio formats : Windows Media, WMA, WMA DRM, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, AAC(no FairPlay) and MP3. and video output: 720p with optional dock.

iPod Touch supports video formats: H.264, MPEG-4. audio formats: MP3, AAC(including FairPlay), AAC+, Apple Lossless, WAV and AIFF. And video output: 480p or 576p with optional cable.

Although both are advanced media player, they couldn’t support all of video and audio formats . So I go to Nidesoft Inc to get program Nidesoft Video Converter, which could convert video or audio files between all popular formats. Fortunately, this video converter not only could support Zune HD and iPod Touch, but also supports all of the popular multimedia devices, such as iPhone, Blackberry, Nokia, Palm, Sansa, Google Phone, iTunes and so on. Personally I select an AVI file and have tried it. Below is what I do:

Firstly, I download this software form http://www.nidesoft.com/downloads/video-converter.exe
Install and Run it.
Step 1: Load files.Click "add Files" button and import the AVI video from my computer.

Tips: EDIT the video with the function button: Crop, Effect, Trim, Options
(1) Remove the undesired area or just convert part of the video area from my video file in “Crop” function.
(2) Select gray effect or Negative effect from Special Effect or tune the Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Volume to get special effect movie in “Effect”.
(3) Click “Trim” button to get my favorite segment.
(4) Click the white box besides "Merge into one file" to merge your selected titles into one video.
Step2. Select the out file formatClick the “format” drop-down list to select the output format. The software provides many profiles to support different devices and players. I select MPEG-4 Movie (*.mp4).If you don’t know what formats your device supports, you can just select the format according to the device name.

Step3. Click the "Convert" button and start the conversion. Wait a few minutes before the conversion succeeds!

After conversion, you could open the folder and find the output video files there, try to play it on your PC first, and also you could load the converted file into your player. For iPod, you could use iTunes to sync the files to the device; for Zune, you need to download the Zune software to manage the media content. Now you could enjoy video with your favorite player. In addition, maybe you want to enjoy dvd movie with iPod or Zune and need convert dvd to ipod and zune. I also find Nidesoft DVD Ripper could help you convert DVD to all popular video or audio formats easily!

As for connectivity

The Zune HD is able to stream music over Wi-Fi, something the iPod Touch cannot do out of the box. But the iPod Touch can stream music over Bluetooth (via A2DP) to compatible players.

Feature-by-feature, the Zune HD and iPod Touch are very similar and now the lower price puts advantage over the Zune HD. But in long time, iPod has been occupied the major markets. Can Zune HD win iPod Touch? We have to wait.

Sansa player review and best solution of putting DVD onto Sansa Fuze

IPods are great music players. But there are also other options. SanDisk has dipped its toes into the media player market and released a series of portable players. Looking at SanDisk’s product lineup and pricing structure, it is clear to see that the Sansa’s target audience would be people looking for a lower-proced media player compared to devices such as the iPod.
The Sansa Fuze is an iPod Nana competitor. On the outside, it looks like the iPod Nano; on the inside, however, it packs a lot more functionality. The robust feature list includes support for subscription services such as eMusic, Napster, and Rhapsody To Go. You can display video and images on its 1.9-inch screen. The player also has an FM tuner, a voice recorder, and microSD expandability. The Fuze performed very well on its audio and video playback.
Sansa Clip is good for people who use subscription music services, people who still listen to the radio, and people who want a small MP3 player with a screen. The Clip has been (and will continue to be) compared to the iPod Shuffle. The Clip is a perfectly capable digital audio player that can be clipped to your clothing like the Shuffle yet it has features the Shuffle doesn’t, such as an FM tuner, voice recording, subscription music compatibility, and a screen.
The Sansa View is SanDisk’s flagship flash MP3 player with the ability to playback video on its 240*320 64k color screen. What makes the Sansa View interesting is its high capacity flash memory along with memory expansion putting it in close rivalry to hard drive bassed players. The other thing going for the View is the “band for the buck” factor. It may not be a high end player, but it is one of the best values on the market.
The SanDisk Sansa e200 series combines copious features such as subscription compatibility, an FM tuner/recorder, voice recording, and photo and video playback into a compact and durable device. The user-removable battery and the Micro SD slot are nice touches, and the device has decent sound quality, processor performance, and battery life. Finally, the Sansa e200 series e280 has a maximum base capacity of 8GB, and it offers a competitive price in the high-stakes world of high-capacity flash players.

Common video and audio files can be used in Sansa players.
Sansa View: supports most audio formats, including MP3, protected and unprotected WMA, WAV, DRM-free MP3 downloads. Video compatibility with MPEG4, WMV, H.264 formats; Smooth video playback at 30 frames per second.
Sansa Clip: plays MP3, WMA, secure WMA and Audible audio file formats. Up to 15 hours of playtime with internal rechargeable battery.
Sansa e280: support WMA, MP3 audio files; AVI, WMV, ASF, MOV, MPEG, MPEG-4 format videos.
Sansa Fuze: it support audio formats including MP3, OGG, FLAC, WMA, secure WMA, WAV, Audible. For videos, the official Sansa website said it support MP3G4 videos, however, when I convert an mp4 videos and convert it into Sansa Fuze with SMC, my player can't play the video. Again I found a post in abi forum:
http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27460 it said that Sansa Fuze support AVI format video. I have been confused about it for a long time and haven't got the clear answer until now. Should I use mpeg4 videos or AVI format videos in Sansa Fuze?
Luckily, I have found a way to get Fuze compatible video with a DVD to Sansa converter, as this converter not only converts videos for common Sansa player, but also convert Sansa Fuze compatible videos. I can convert Fuze videos directly with it. What’s the format and video code? Who cares?
See the below:

The “Sansa Fuze MP4 Movie (*.mp4)” profile is set for Sansa Fuze videos. So what we need it do is load DVD file by press the “Open DVD”button, choose the “Sansa Fuze MP4 Movie (*.mp4)” profile and click “convert” button, then you get the Fuze compatible video.
Convert the video files into Sansa Fuze with SMC and enjoy.
Options: if you have no DVD, you can get Fuze videos from any other video formats file with Sansa converter, which also support “Sansa Fuze MP4 Movie (*.mp4)” profile, and you can convert videos into Fuze video directly.

Blackberry tour vs Nokia N97: compare them in the process of making decision

This summer there are some very strong devices out there including Blackberry Tour, Nokia N97, HTC Magic, iPhone 3G S, Palm Pre. Some may prefer iPhone 3G S or Palm Pre, but at last I have narrowed down my choices to Blackberry Tour and Nokia N97, and I’ve had a really tough time choosing between the two:

Blackberry tour:
· Supports high-speed 3G EV-DO Rev
· Non-touchscreen, a large, highly tactile, full-QWERTY keyboard for fast and precise typing
· Advanced media player for videos, pictures and music, a 3.5 mm stereo headset jack and support for the Bluetooth Stereo Audio Profile (A2DP/AVCRP)
· 256MB Flash memory, support cards of up to 16GB
· Built-in GPS with support for geotagging, BlackBerry Maps
· Allowing users to edit Microsoft(R) Word, Excel and PowerPoint files directly on the handset
· Easy mobile access to Facebook(R), MySpace and Flickr(R), as well as popular instant messaging services including BlackBerry Messenger, Yahoo! IM, AIM(R), Google Talk and Windows Live Messenger
· Support for BlackBerry App World, as well as third-party mobile applications
· BlackBerry Internet Service allows access to up to 10 supported personal and corporate email accounts
· No Wi-Fi, it is said to be added in the future.

Nokia N97:
· Sliding QWERTY keypad and touchscreen display
· Memory – 32GB Internal memory, 128 MB RAM, microSD up to 16GB
· Camera – 5 MP (Carl Zeiss optics)
· OS – Symbian
· Battery – 6.6 hours talk-time and 430 hours standby
· Radio – Stereo FM radio with RDS, Visual radio; FM transmitter
· Widescreen – 16:9, 3.5in TFT, 640 x 360 pixels
· 802.11b/g; USB; Bluetooth with A2DP; GPS with A-GPS
· 3.5mm audio jack
· Handwriting Recognition
· A little expensive, at about $650

That’s the simple information I have got about the two phones. Here I should explain my smartphone requirements. I’m looking for a device to serve as my personal telephone, media player, mini computer and business assistant. For personal telephone, it is used for daily contact, to make calls and receive calls. Both Blackberry tour and Nokia N97 were easy to use and very convenient to dial a number.

For multimedia, both of them are advanced media player for videos, music and pictures. Blackberry tour supports video formats including MPEG4, H.263, H.264 (encoding and decoding 30fps), WMV and audio format including MP3, AAC, AAC+, WMA. Nokia N97 can play mp4 and 3gp videos with up to 640*360 pixels resolution. Personally I prefer to watch movies with Blackberry tour. In the meantime I go to Nidesoft Inc to get programs Nidesoft Blackberry Converter Suite, which rip DVDs and videos into Blackberry-friendly files. Just copy the converted file to memory card, pop it into phone’s card slot, and enjoy. Or use program Nidesoft Nokia video converter if you would like to choose N97 as media player.

As for connectivity, the Nokia N97 looks like a good all-rounder, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an Infrared port. The BlackBerry Tour features Bluetooth as well, (with A2DP) but is somehow lacking Wi-Fi (just like the much-derided BlackBerry Storm). Although the rumor said that the Blackberry Storm 2 will have Wi-Fi. N97 also features an FM radio, which the Tour doesn't.

If you always travel around for work then Blackberry can be a wonderful assistant. The BlackBerry Tour smartphone provides the industry's leading mobile solution for email, messaging (IM, SMS, MMS) and social networking together with built-in GPS. I like type emails and message with the full-QWERTY keyboards fast and easily. N97 also have GPS and can send emails, but the business-oriented Blackberry tour is better for business assistant.

In the end, I make up my decision. The Blackberry tour won out, it made the most sense to me as media player and business assistant. But as I’ve noted the Nokia N97 was also pretty impressive and could be a viable option for many others.

Thought at Walkman's 30th birthday: why did iPod dominate the media market nowadays?

Sony Walkman has turned 30 years old today. Thirty years ago, the device was revolutionary changed the way people listened to music. Sony sold 30,000 Walkmans in the first two months after its launch, and 50 million within a decade. It created the portable media player market. Three decades on, however, Sony is struggling against rivals such as Apple, which has enjoyed immense success with its iPod music player. Apple iPod might be the market leader today. While people celebrate Walkman’s 30th birthday, I wonder what makes iPod became dominance in the media player market instead of the original Sony Walkman?

Sony Company has always been developing its video and audio products. Sony Walkman’s latest flagship model, the NW-X1060, packs noise canceling, a bright touch screen display, mobile TV, and the ability to surf the Internet With the storage of 32GB, it can hold 8,000 songs (128kbps mp3) or 120h video playback (at 384kbps). It support all major file types includes MP3, MP4, WMA, AAC, Linear PCM, AVC, WMV, JPEG.
The Sony PSP Go will come in fall of this year. It is a much smaller, sexier device that drops the UMD, adds 16GB of flash RAM and Bluetooth, and compresses the older PSP’s brick-like form factor to a narrower, sleeker size and shape. It’s got a huge amount of storage space for you to store music, videos and games. The files support MPEG-4, AVI video format and MP3 audio format.
Besides the multimedia player, Sony’s phone also has powerful multimedia function. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is convergence of multimedia entertainment and mobile web communication. It has a 3.0 inches TFT touchscreen with shades of 65K internal screen colours and gives a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. This let the users to play games and watch video clips on its wide screen easily. The video resolution support 640x480 pixels and video format support MPEG-4. The music format support: MP3, AAC, AAC+, eACC+, WMA (including protected WMA).
By the way, a lot of people don’t know where to get videos and songs when they take a Sony multimedia device. Some may purchase music and movies online. If you still don’t know where to get or don’t want to buy online, you may use Nidesoft DVD to Sony Xperia Converter to convert DVD files into your Sony device, or use Nidesoft Sony Xperia Converter to convert all other video files into Sony device. It can be used for all Sony products.

After look into Sony product, let’s turn our attention to iPod. Apple first released the original iPod in late 2001, and it was quickly destined to be a huge success. It was exactly what people wanted. It has simple interface, large capacity, fashionable, and visually attractive.

Simple Interface - The Apple iPod has an extremely simple interface, needing only a few seconds of use to be able to master it. It is very easy to use.

Large capacity - The current regular iPod has 8GB or 16GB capacity. It can holds large amount of songs and movies, enable you to enjoy them.

It's visually attractive – The appearance of iPod was fashionable. They made it look very sexy, appealing to just about everyone, and is now extremely recognizable.

Windows and Mac compatibility
- When they crossed over to the windows market, they more than tripled their market, literally reaching anyone that owned a computer.

These are the things that really make the Apple iPod dominate the mobile MP3 player market, reaching over 70% of the market share. Apple never simply wanted to dominate the market with one product though, they're still releasing new products at an alarming rate, each of which are doing extremely well. From iPod Mini to iPod Shuffle, iPod Touch, iPod Nano, from first generation to second generation, third generation. The Apple iPod will never stop giving us surprise by improving its iPod products, and I think that is the most important reason why iPod lead the media player market.

HTC Magic Review - The HTC Google G2 Phone is Just Magic

The HTC Google G2 Phone is the latest entrant into the android touch screen smart phone line up of HTC. As it is a “special” one: this phone has not yet been released in the United States, and has only a very limited release internationally, I have great interest of full disclosure to let you know this mobile phone. The HTC Google G2 Phone is known internationally as the HTC Magic, and it is a pretty snazzy phone.

Hardware
The HTC Magic smart phone Google G2 is enclosed in a cool white plastic case. It has a slightly protruding bottom that does not hinder the sleekness of its design in any way. A wide 3.2-inch touch screen sprawls on the face of the phone. The LCD TFT screen is vibrant and colorful with its high HVGA 320X480 pixel resolution. The screen attracts fingerprints but this is a commonly found blip in most touch screen phones in the market today. There is also a trackball for navigation. The absence of a physical QWERTY keyboard on this wholly touch screen operated phone has helped the phone knock off some of its weight and appear slimmer.
Software
The alluring wrapping of the HTC Magic is augmented by the android software platform that it uses as its brain. This software ensures fast and high performance of applications of the phone. The superior quality android operating system also allows you to add new applications and games to your HTC Magic smart phone through the android market by exploring options like ‘shopping’, ‘arcade’, ‘social’ and ‘travel’.
Android software in the mobile phone also implies more customization- users can tailor the handset to meet their specific needs by swapping the home screen, applications or even the dialer style. The Android software also lets you access third party applications and not just the core applications and data on the phone. This makes the HTC Magic more open.
The phone has integrations with Google applications. Google Talk, G mail, Google search, Google calendar are some of the applications accessible via the HTC Magic. Google Street view has been integrated with the phone’s mapping applications making it possible to view streets virtually to find out the way. The phone’s GPS facility supports efficacious working of maps.
Other interesting features:
The HTC Magic has a 3.2 Mega pixel auto focus enabled camera for the masterpiece photograph.. Its powerful video recording capabilities allows you to post videos directly on You Tube or share videos with friends via e-mail or MMS. It is capable of playing media files including videos and audio files. The video looks perfect with the 480x320 pixels screen and the music sounds beautiful. It supports only video formats like MP4 and 3GP which is slightly less when compared to the current standards of android mobiles. That’s doesn’t matter, third party software like Nidesoft DVD to Mobile Converter can convert DVD videos to HTC Magic video and Nidesoft Video Converter can convert all other formats video to HTC Magic video. It also supports rang of audio files including MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV and OGG, and the third party software can also be used for audio files.

The phone has high performance Internet mettle due to the presence of HSDPA with a speed of 7.2 Mbps and Wi Fi support. Fast downloads make your mobile Internet experience on the HTC Magic a joy. Stereo Blue tooth connectivity is also present in the phone.
The battery life of HTC G2 is much longer than HTC G1. The stand by time is 660 hours for WCDMA and 420 hours for GSM. The talk time is 400 minutes for WCDMA and 450 minutes for GSM. The 1340 mAh Lithium-ion battery is rechargeable.
Conclusion
Based on what I’ve seen, the HTC Magic seems like a really solid device. We like the Magic, maybe even love it a little bit. But it is a little disappointed at its price of about 6oo dollars, much higher than the new iPhone 3G S and the new Palm Pre.
