Philips Mobile Phones

When camera has been integrated into a mobile phone, everyone flocked into mobile phone stores and purchased the device. Unfortunately when the technology was first introduced, it was just a test to see how the market is going to accept this technology. In other words, the first camera mobile phone was not that impressive altogether. However, the mobile phone technology has rapidly improved since then. More and more mobile phone manufacturers are producing camera mobile phones. The industry keeps on blooming with various types of mobile phones but most of them will always include camera as one of the great features integrated into the mobile phone.

One of the mobile phone manufacturers is Philips which is actually one of the largest electronics companies in the world. Philips was originally founded in the Netherlands in 1891 and has managed to dominate at least 20% to 30% of the electronic devices market. Starting with light bulbs and other electronic technical equipment, Philips has developed remarkably and has since then produced many types of electronic products such as Philips vacuum cleaner, Philips audio compact cassette (one of its famous products), and also world’s first Philips home video cassette recorder.

Apart from those products, Philips had successfully introduced many other products such as Philips laser disc player, Philips Compact Disc (partnership with Sony), Philips Super Audio CD (also partnership with Sony), Philips Senseo coffeemaker, Philips Mirror TV, Philips Blue-Ray Disc (again partnership with Sony), and also Philips flatscreen with WOW VX technology. For your information, Philips is receiving a royalty on every single DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) created. If I could just create something like this, or maybe like Sheri Schmelzer who created decorative attachments for the holes in Crocs shoes, I would be happily travelling around the world and brought with me a satellite mobile phone. What a way to make money streaming into your bank accounts endlessly eh?

The Philips Company has also widened its products by venturing into mobile phone business under one of its wings, Philips Consumer Products. So today we are going to take some time to check out how well Philips mobile phones are and how well does the product penetrate the mobile industry. I won’t be discussing on each one of Philips mobile phones. I have nicely selected few mobile phones from Philips ranging from camera mobile phones, standard first generation mobile phones, 3G mobile phones, and also internet enabled mobile phones.
I have to remind you though that I am going to discuss about Philips mobile phones, sometimes I tend to talk about other things. I love to give away information related to mobile phones, and that includes their accessories as well. I will try my best to summarize what does a term mean, such as “MiniSD”, “MP3”, and so on.

All right, let’s take a look at one of Philips candy-bar type mobile phones, Philips Xenium 9A9t. Philips Xenium 9A9t mobile phone comes in two colors; black and silver color mobile phone. It has other siblings like Philips Xenium 9a9d and Philips Xenium 9a9a. The mobile phone supports both GPRS network and GSM network including 900, 1800, and 1900 bands. If you have a chance to see this mobile phone, you would be surprised that the mobile phone is not that attractive in terms of its looks. I guess this "mobile phone" is sorry to say , one of Philips’ ugly mobile phones. The mobile phone however is more than good enough for those who really not into mobile phones and gadgets.

The Philips Xenium 9A9t mobile phone’s main display is a color STN (what the heck does STN mean?) touchscreen. Color STN display basically means each pixel of it is made up of 3 separate colored pixels of red, green, and blue where each of these colors are controlled individually by the graphic controller chip. In other words, a 320 by 240 pixel color STN display actually contains 960 by 240 individually colored pixels giving the image displayed on it to be better in clarity and quality. Well with this mobile phone from Philips, the resolution is 128 by 160 pixels, therefore it is actually displaying 384 by 480 individually colored pixels. I can assure you that image displayed on Philips Xenium 9A9t mobile phone is quite clear but don’t expect too much from such a tiny screen LOL.

The Philips Xenium 9A9t mobile phone is equipped with 20MB of internal memory where you can use it to store your mobile phone ringtones, MP3s, photos, and other media files. Thanks to Philips, the Philips Xenium 9A9t mobile phone also supports external memory card. You can use a MiniSD memory card to increase the mobile phone’s memory capacity.

Do you know what MiniSD is?

MiniSD card is a tiny form factor removable and portable memory device. It was created (introduced by SanDisk Corporation) purposely to be used in cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, and many other gadgets. Currently the MiniSD card is produced in capacities ranging from 16MB to 8GB. There is another variation made which is MiniSDHC card where its memory capacity ranging from 4GB to 6GB. The MiniSDHC card however can only be used if the device such as mobile phone has a HC support built in into it. Don't confuse this MiniSD card with your usual SIM card though they share about the same size. There is also another type of mobile phone which is dual sim card mobile phone.

Okay, let’s go back to our discussion on Philips Xenium 9A9t mobile phone. The mobile phone comes with 1.3 megapixels camera built in into the mobile phone where the resolution of the pictures taken by this mobile phone can be set up to 1280 by 1024 pixels. Evaluating from its price, it is not a surprise when I found out that there is no digital zooming or optical zooming though as well as auto focus feature. There is no flash as well. Though the mobile phone is lack of these features, the Philips Xenium 9a9t mobile phone still can be used for recording videos.

Apart from sending text messages and MMS (Multimedia Messaging System), the Philips Xenium 9a9t mobile phone has also enabled a feature where you can send e-mails. T9 text function has been integrated as well. However, the Philips Xenium 9a9t is not an internet enabled mobile phone. So you can’t surf the net with this mobile phone. The Philips Xenium 9a9t mobile phone is Java enabled (hooray! You can play Java games with this mobile phone!) and since it has touchscreen display, Philips has nicely add another great feature which is handwriting recognition. Oh yes, the mobile phone only weighs about 85 grams (3 ounce), so it is quite light, don’t you think so?

Unfortunately, the mobile phone does not support Bluetooth technology let alone Wi-Fi connectivity. Wi-Fi is actually a certification, trademark of the Wi-Fi alliance based on the IEEE 802.11 standards called Wireless LAN (WLAN) which warrants interoperability between different wireless devices. Fortunately, the mobile phone has a USB port so you can connect the mobile phone to other devices such as your PC to download or upload your media files.

Enough said about Philips Xenium 9a9t mobile phone. I am actually so excited to make a review of one mobile phone from Philips which is Philips 588 mobile phone. The Philips 588 mobile phone is a clamshell form factor device and it comes with three different colors; black, purple, and white. Just like Philips Xenium 9a9t mobile phone, Philips 588 also supports both GPRS and GSM network.

I apologize that I have to stop here for a while. Something came up. I'll be back and add more things here...;-)

Can you make money from using Maxis Hotlink prepaid?

If you are a long time user of Hotlink, then I believe you have more than the knowledge on how Maxis charges you for anything and everything. Why waste the money for things you do not really need when you can actually earn money from it? You may not be as rich as Ananda Krishnan, the owner of Maxis Malaysia, but at least you can earn some money from all the telcos though you stick with Maxis Hotlink.

What if I use Celcom Xpax?

I know that sometimes you don't have the courage to try switching from one service to another. You might say that you are not sure about the advantages of other phone plans or network. Frankly say, that unsure feeling is just something you developed inside you due to successful marketing strategy from Celcom. Either using Celcom Xpax or Blue, it won't matter and you don't have to worry much if you plan to switch to Hotlink or Digi. Remember, at this time the cost to change or transfer is still free and therefore take advantage of that. Change and try it for a month and then you can always change back to your original provider. However, as far as money is concern, go for package that offers you lower call rates and that will absolutely help you to earn more money when you join Mymode.
