KTouch 8 Megapixel Camera Phone from Beijing Tianyu


“Announced last week in China, the new K-Touch C800 and C280 are powered by a 8 megapixel CCD camera module, the K-Touch C700 is using a 7 megapixel CCD camera module instead. While there is no reviews available to confirm the photo quality yet, the camera phones is just like your digital camera with 3x optical zoom, Xenon flash, image stabilizer, face recognition and support up to 1600 ISO sensitivity.It looks like the phones are using a seperate processor or software to handle the photo taking. The K-Touch C800 and C280 have 2 microSD card slot, both your camera photos and phones data are stored in seperate memory card. When you want to add your photos to your mms or email, there is no way for you to access the camera memory card. Basically to do that you will have to swap the memory card into the phone memory card slot, pretty troublesome design I would say.” More here:

The first 10 applications on your Symbian phone?

Sp3220070418134139“What are the first 10 applications you install on your phone? That’s the question that was poised, and answered, by Mark Guim of the Nokia Blog. Also weighing in with responses were a number of other S60 Bloggers: Vaibhav Sharma of the the Symbian Blog, Steve Rowlands at S60 Blogger, Gerrymoth at Nokia Addict, Zack Epstein at Symbian-in-Motion and Stefan Constantinescu at IntoMobile. Read on for a summary of the applications mentioned and their popularity.I’ve compiled a table that lists all the applications mentioned in the above blog posts, or in the comments attached to those blog posts. Amongst these you’ll no doubt find some of the best S60 applications available.There are a few notable points to be made:

  • Many of these application are free. This is not surprising when sorting by popularity. However the most popular application is the commercial Handy Taskman from Epocware.
  • Some of the application could be considered client applications for online services (Shozu, Share Online)
  • Big Internet brands (Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, YouTube) all make appearances, mainly as client application for thier services.
  • A number of these application make use of the GPS, perhaps suggesting a strong future location trend. Similarly many are focused on communication (messaging, IM and VoIP) suggesting communication is still at the core of phone usage.
  • These out the choices of bloggers and their commenters, or, in other words, those who are participating in social media as creators or commenters. This will skew the results compared to the majority of users, but as they are edge / power user this may suggest future general usage patterns. Also the total numbers contributing are too small for there to be any statistical rigour.” Read more here:
