Telecommunications – FYI About VOIP – Must Read

Hi my name is Nigel, I am writing this article today to inform you of some very exciting advancements in the telecom world. Do you or someone you know have a home phone? Most people will say yes even if they don’t use it they have it. Also if you have a home phone you probably have calling features, and they cost you every month weather you use them or not. So let me ask you a question, have you heard of VOIP? That is voice over internet protocol. Do you know what that means? Well let me tell you, technology has changed so much that now there is a phone that can be connected to your internet and you use it like your home phone. If you haven’t seen it let me explain. Recently I was told about this new phone called a video phone. When I saw it I was amazed. I am not kidding you, right away I saw so many advantages to this technology. But like most I was skeptical to say the least. Also very interested. What I learned and want to share with you is that this new technology is rapidly replacing our old technology. What I mean is that everything we have like music television, photography is going digital. So it is only a matter of time before the last thing the telephone goes digital also, it’s happening right now.
Do you have friends or family that live in another country, state, or province? Would you like to talk to them more? What if you could see them not only hear their voice? That is what I am talking about, a phone that allows you to see and her in digital format. That is not the best part. This phone is just like your home phone, with a local phone number. But this phone and phone number are also portable. That’s right you can take the phone with you and if family or friends want to call you no matter where you are in the world. They can dial your local number and your phone will ring where ever you are in the world, provided you have internet access of course. Try that with your current home phone. Also if your friends or family have a video phone you will not only hear their voice but you can see their face. Did I mention that this video phone comes with all the calling features at no extra cost? That’s right call forwarding, call display, conference calling, etc all included at no extra cost. This VOIP technology is changing the way we communicate.
I was also amazed to find out that this phone with all of it’s features and functions is less expensive than my old home phone, the one plugged into the wall. When I found out all that I wanted to know more. What I found out got me really excited. So I called all my relatives and friends and told them about this video phone and how much money they could save and all the features they would gain. Well they are excited now to. We call each other and visit. That’s right because we can see each other we now visit, it’s great. I actually connect my video phone to my 60 inch big screen television and visit in life size. When my wife and I travel we take one with us and our kids can call us. So we are never out of touch now, we used to use the cell phones when we travel, but the phone companies were charging us roaming. Not with our video phones. Everywhere you go now, hotels and motels even friends houses they have internet. We just plug the phone in and within 2 minuets we have our phone with our home phone number and we get our messages. Did you know that when you stay at a hotel they charge you to use the phone? Well with our video phone we never pay for phone calls anymore.
You see this truly is something to get excited about. I joined the company. Not everyone will but soon everyone will have a video phone. I did mention it was less expensive than our old phone right? Well so much less that we got 2 so that we can always have one with us when we go away. Tell you what, the 2 phones with all the calling features you can get, local phone number and video capabilities cost us the same as 1 conventional analog phone. In summery I have 2 completely independent phones and numbers that are portable and digital and video capable for the cost of 1 regular one line house phone that you cant see the person your talking to, or …

Galaxy Nexus Vs iPhone 4S: Top Smartphones Match

Are you looking to change your old smartphone? If you have been reading a lot of tech blogs then your choices must have only included Samsung’ Galaxy Nexus and Apple’s iPhone 4S. Each of these phones is special on their own right. They have their own unique features that seem to top the one from the other. This makes it hard to choose between them.
But that is if you are not into jumping to bandwagons. Most people would buy the iPhone 4S because it is cool to have one. You can say this for most of Apple’s gadgets. Let us stay away from stereotyping and compare the two phones the way that they should be compared.
Performance
The iPhone 4S runs on Apple’s very own A5 processor, the same one that is on the iPad 2. It is clocked at 1 GHz and is supported by a RAM of 512 MB. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Nexus is powered by Texas Instruments’ OMAP processor which is clocked at 1.2 GHz. It also doubles the RAM of the iPhone 4S. Higher numbers are better although the difference is subtle during actual performance.
Apps
The number of apps on the Apple App Store is larger than those in the Android Market. A significant number of those apps are actually worth the purchase which is something you can’t say for Androids. This is the biggest advantage of the iPhone 4S over the Galaxy Nexus.
Operating System
The Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to have Android Ice Cream Sandwich as its operating system. This latest version of Android offers a lot of improvements both in performance and aesthetics. The iPhone 4S has the iOS 5 for its operating system. It is simpler to use than ICS but you can’t make the choice between the phones based on OS. Both OS are that good.
Camera
The iPhone 4S comes with an 8MP camera while the Nexus has a 5MP camera. This makes the camera of the iPhone take better pictures. Both phones can take 1080p HD camera.
Connectivity
Connectivity options are becoming a big factor in choosing a phone. With the iPhone 4S, you can connect to the internet through 3G and Wi-Fi. It is also the first phone to come out with Bluetooth 4, the latest version of the popular wireless technology. With Bluetooth 4, you can transfer files faster and in an extended range.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Nexus can connect to the internet using 3G, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE. Through 4G LTE, you can experience internet speeds of up to 21 Mb/s. In contrast, the iPhone 4S can only reach 14.4 Mb/s. You won’t have Bluetooth 4 with Galaxy Nexus but you have Near Field Communication (NFC). This is a new wireless technology where file transfers can be done just by tapping two NFC phones.
Conclusion
Have you decided which one is for you? The iPhone 4S has better apps, camera and a simpler interface. With the Nexus, you have faster internet speeds, NFC, and Ice Cream Sandwich. Check out our Galaxy Nexus vs. iPhone 4s review for a more comprehensive comparison.…
